"
recommended shortening one chimney by four feet because it was leaning. He reset the flue inside the rebuilt chimney. He extracted quite" a bit of brick on the front porch and reset it using the leftover bricks from the chimney. He tucked and sealed all the gaps in the chimney and basically restored both chimneys. He was able to use a closely matching color of mortar so the work looks integral to the house. He redid an area of mismatched mortar and repaired other areas of the brick as well. He worked hard every day and coordinated the installation of the scaffolding with the neighbor so it would not tie up their driveway access more than one afternoon. I did not have to ask him to redo any work. He did all of this work for the original price.
provided a 15 year guarantee.
repaired and remortared the effected areas to match the original work. He finished the job to my satisfaction within the time frame we agreed to.
is excellent to work with. He is extremely professional and helpful with suggestions. He has that old school work ethic, and you could tell he enjoys his work and has pride in getting things done the right way. It was very stress free dealing with
. He definitely went way above and beyond what you would expect from a typical contractor. I will always call him from now on with all my masonry needs. If you chose
, you will be happy you did.

"It was fabulous. He thought it could take up to 5 days, but it only took 4 . It was done with consideration for the people that were around and he made sure we" could continue to use the non shower parts of the bathroom. The work was done neatly and was cleaned up on a daily basis. He helped find a particular set of shelves I was looking for. His work looks great and we are very happy with the new shower.

Masonry touches to your home's exterior, such as a retaining wall, can add a timeless look. (Photo courtesy of Angie List members Deborah and Paul S.)

Masonry exteriors

Generally considered the highest quality choice for home exteriors, brick and stone are also almost maintenance free and will last as long as the house, though some repairs may be needed from time to time.

Arcola Masonry Contractors Provider Name Locked
and
Arcola Masonry Contractors Provider Name Locked
were a pleasure to work with from the very start.
Arcola Masonry Contractors Provider Name Locked
came out, reviewed my property and the scope of work and very quickly put together a bid. His prices were reasonable and comprehensive. My house is nearly 100 years old, so there were additional "surprises" during the project.
Arcola Masonry Contractors Provider Name Locked
and his team were nimble and flexible. The project included breaking up an old front walk and stairs, removal of the old wood decking while supporting the roof of the covered porch, building a stairs along the front elevation, wrapping the sides in brick, cutting a new front path, and replacing a section of retaining wall, doing a smooth coat on the retaining wall. It was extensive. Though there were additional costs, he and

put together additional costs quickly. I am very, very happy with how the project turned out.

Company was very professional. They provided a timely proposal. Their estimate was a bit higher than similarly rated companies on Angie's List leading us to go with another provider.

fMarcus had been referred to me by a friend who had used him when building his house. I spoke to him on the phone and we agreed on a time to meet at the job site for an estimate. Right from the beginning
Arcola Masonry Contractors Provider Name Locked
couldn't have been more patient, friendly, helpful and professional. We met on time and I showed him the four crumbling concrete steps in the rear of the building, the crumbling concrete stoop in the front of the building and the cinder block wall with cracks in it. There were also two loose pieces of irregular shaped slate at the base of the steps, which was a trip hazard. The steps were not all the same height, so
Arcola Masonry Contractors Provider Name Locked
recommended reducing the rise in the taller steps by adding concrete. He also excavated at the base of the steps, cut the slate into three perfect rectangles and cemented them in. No more tripping hazard and everything looks great! He was also able to repair and reinforce a crumbling concrete stoop in the front of the building after I had been told by other contractors that it had to be replaced. As he was working,
Arcola Masonry Contractors Provider Name Locked
would give me options and come up with better solutions, like strengthening the wall with short pieces of rebar. I would definitely hire

again!

Before we contacted
Arcola Masonry Contractors Provider Name Locked
at Calao Stone, we had reached out to multiple masons and landscape architects and had been unsatisfied with their exorbitant estimates and long projected lead times. Everything changed when we met
Arcola Masonry Contractors Provider Name Locked
, however; he was extremely prompt, professional, and responsive, and provided a very reasonable estimate and timeframe for our renovation project.

The estimate from Calao was so much better than their competitors that we also decided to place flagstone on our back patio -- and all for the same estimate as some masons proposed to simply replace our stairs and walkway. Calao also recommended that we choose our stone from a local
Arcola Masonry Contractors Provider Name Locked
in Maryland that carried an enormous amount of beautiful stone; my wife was very pleased with the price and selection.

Making matters even easier,
Arcola Masonry Contractors Provider Name Locked
offered to begin the work while we were away from town over the Christmas holidays. While this took a
Arcola Masonry Contractors Provider Name Locked
of faith,
Arcola Masonry Contractors Provider Name Locked
's professionalism and daily email updates during our absence made the process very smooth. Calao's crews completely transformed our relatively-small rowhome entrance and back patio; the crew even broke the stone by hand for our new front yard planter. The excellent quality of the masonry is apparent at first sight.

In short, if you're looking for professional, timely, reasonable stonework in the

, D.C., area, choose Calao Stone.

was a pleasure to work with and we recommend him and Calao without reservation.

My chimney was deteriorating and
Arcola Masonry Contractors Provider Name Locked
explained to me in detail what work he would need to perform in order to make the chimney safe again. He told me what materials were needed and exactly what the job would cost. We agreed upon a start date, which he cautioned should be soon based on the poor condition of my chimney, and also informed me when he would complete the job. He finished ahead of schedule and the chimney looks like new. I can't believe it is the same crumbling chimney it once was.
Arcola Masonry Contractors Provider Name Locked
is also the neatest contractor I have ever had the pleasure to work with. I could really see the effort he puts into and the pride he takes in his work.
Arcola Masonry Contractors Provider Name Locked
is a true craftsman.
Aside from the impeccable work

performed, he has to be the most personable and professional businessman out there. I would recommend him to anyone. I know they will be as pleased as I am with their experience.
