Masonry reviews in Plainfield


I originally called

for an estimate to repair a small stone patio attached to back of my house. While here I had him give an estimate for fixing pretty much all the various problems that need attention--re-leveling a back walkway, removing old flagstones and replacing broken ones on another walkway, repairing basement steps etc. His total price was extremely reasonable so we decided to go ahead and have him do everything. Which he did and we are extremely pleased with the results and his attention to detail. Using his services was a totally positive experience (which is something one doesn't get to say very often about most contractors). I highly recommend him.

They were puntual, professional and they cleaned up every day after working. They did an excellent job. At least one person has asked me for their info so far.

is an excellent mason. He's very knowledgeable and honest. He's a European craftsman who performed very thorough work with great attention to detail. We would hire him again. We really appreciated the lengths Romauld went to to be sure the job was done right.

I had gotten recommendation from a co-worker who had used A.

before and was not disappointed. Their estimate out of 3 others was the lowest and the best. I did not have to give them a deposit or anything. I signed off on the estimate and they told me they would start in approximately 4 weeks and they were true to the schedule. They did not ask me for the final payment until the railings were installed on 7/9/12 (they had to be custom ordered). Now that's customer service!
They started on Wednesday and finished on Saturday. The work was done so professionally and looks fantastic. I highly recommend this company.

3/29 & 3/30: retaining wall and back porch were demolished and the retaining wall and the base for back porch rebuilt. Debris piled in driveway to be removed the next day. When the crew arrived they asked to see a copy of the contract as they were unsure of what was required for the job, apparently they had not been adequately briefed by

on the job at hand. The foreman asked me what type of brick to use, I told him

knew that I was not familiar with brick and I had asked that it match the front stoop. In the end, the brick they used was fine, just caused a few moments of concern about the possible outcome. 4/3: The crew who worked on the concrete stamping of the basement wall arrived and did a wonderful job. The basement wall looks great! Worked quickly, created exactly what we were promised and cleaned up their area. 4/6: the remainder of the work was begun. When replacing the retaining wall, the crew pulled several large landscape boulders into the driveway (instead of pulling them into the yard) where they block the garage parking. The foreman told us that the debris from the original wall and back porch would remain in the driveway only overnight but it sat in the driveway blocking access for over a week. The day after the wall was covered with concrete ,

called us and asked if we could pay for all the work. We pointed out that only the concrete wall and retaining wall were complete (except for replacing the displaced boulders).

was not aware at that point that the front stoop hadn't been touched, that the family room threshold had not been replaced, that the back porch was just roughed in and that the debris was still in the driveway. We said we would pay half if he would come with the crews the next day to supervise the work (on or about 4/6). He came with the crews and the crews worked on all the projects and appeared to complete them, except the sealing of the concrete porches and putting the boulders back in place. However, in the process the bushes flanking the front stoop were damaged. On 4/10, four days after the work on the front stoop was done, we emailed

and asked if we could remove the plastic covering from the front stoop. He responded to go ahead, that he'd be out to seal when the weather was good. No rain on 4/9, 4/10 or 4/11 when it was 80+ and sunny. When we removed the plastic, we discovered the mortar was not the same light grey color we expected but had been replaced with a VERY strange dark grey almost neon purple, not what we requested. There are splotches of dark grey mortar on the house, sidewalk and railings. The stoop railing posts were sealed around with a tan mortar. One post is different than the rest, it still has it's original ring. It looks bad as the other five posts now are mortared roughly at their base with tan mortar and one is not. Neither the back porch or the front stoop have been sealed. All the work on the front stoop looks sloppy and unattractive, an unprofessional job. There will be additional costs tied to using this contractor for these jobs. We have hired a landscaper to properly reset the boulders and will pay additional charges to replace the two large bushes by the front stoop. We discovered the threshold for the family room door was not installed as we had requested and no explanation was given why the change was made. We had asked for a complete slab and had given the okay to remove the door threshold and side beams as needed (as we are replacing the door). We wanted the look of a complete slab, no cuts. The threshold has been cut and concreted in with dark grey mortar. Doesn't look great and not what was requested. The only portions of the project completed to our original request were the retaining wall and the stamped concrete wall.

didn't have a clear idea what his crews had and hadn't completed and of how the job was progressing. He showed little concern for the movements of his crews. He asked for payment on the last day he was here with his crews, stating he was short of money. After several weeks of waiting, all jobs have been done. The stamped concrete wall has since developed a section that looks darker than the rest for whatever reason. The front porch looks much better, but the limestone has cut lines from the guys removing the mortar that was the wrong color. The driveway retaining wall looks great and the back porch has been sealed. The second go at the family room threshold looks nice.
