Chris and team with Capitol Hardscapes did a great job installing a new patio. Couldn’t be happier with the result and they were responsive and easy to work with throughout the process.

AMottern Masonry Design
Mottern Masonry exceeded our expectations. The initial consultation was valuable in terms of the vendor understanding our goals and discussing realistic outcomes. The team did a fabulous job with our patio, fire pit and walkway and were very professional at all times. They also completed the project in the time stated. I was very satisfied with cost in terms of outcome. I absolutely love my new patio! I would definitely recommend them to friends and neighbors.

Great team of guys who do quality work. They arrived in a timely matter everyday and left things as neat as possible at the end of each day. Ricardo the forman was great. Abel the owner was very responsive when I had questions. They basically turned my whole backyard (townhouse) into a paved yard from house almost to fence line. They left about 5 feet of grass close to fence line at my request.

Couldnt be happier with my new patio, it is beautiful! After years of looking at an old cracked concrete patio, I have a nicely designed paver patio. Dave and his team were great to work with. He was responsive, supervised and designed the job, ensuring perfection. I am extremely pleased with the way it turned out!

AFIRST CHOICE MASONRY
First Choice Masonry is top notch from start to finish. We are thrilled with the new patio that they installed. Pari (the owner) worked with his crew to do a masterful job of transforming a muddy, grassy area in to a beautiful patio that we love and will be able to use for years to come. The crew worked very hard and the result exceeded all of our expectations. In addition, their price is very reasonable. We would love to do business with them again.

ACapital Masonry LLC
Capital Masonry installed a new patio last week, replacing our concrete patio with a Pennsylvania flagstone patio. The patio was extended by 8 feet as well. Mike, the owner of Capital Masonry, was very cordial and extremely responsive. He contacted us immediately after we requested a quote, and he came out very soon thereafter to give a quote. Like Mike, his team was very pleasant. Capital Masonry's pricing was very competitive compared to the other companies that gave us quotes. We are really looking forward to using the refreshed patio space in the coming years!

I was planning on removing a old patio and install a new one but after talking to multiple contractors including a landscaper I felt the job best performed by a professional contractor. Soni Singh is very personable and he listened to what I wanted done and even made a few suggestions regarding the project such as going with a concrete base instead of a sand base. Once we agreed on project details I paid a 1/3 deposit and he scheduled me a start date within 3 weeks. Later Soni called me to advise me he could start 4 days ahead of schedule which I accepted. Soni, his uncle, and work crew started work they first removed the old patio (which we discovered was built on two previous patio layers and prepared the area for the concrete base. The next day they poured the concrete and began laying brick for the patio and walkway. The next day they finished laying brick. I misunderstood what the materials were going to be used for the retaining wall so Soni agreed to use different materials for the retaining wall. He was very accommodating with my change request and his uncle came back the next day with new materials. The retaining wall was built and I was very satisfied with the results. I have already had friends compliment me on the new patio,walkway, and retaining wall. The new work makes my home and back yard look much better.

This is our second time working with Soni (he installed our stone front entrance) and we couldn’t be more satisfied! The crew was very professional and courteous while the project began during the projected start date (there is a window provided which is totally understandable given the nature of the work and unpredictability of the weather) and finished well within the projected schedule. All in, we had the existing deck removed and replaced with a beautiful new patio complete with a 10 ft. sitting wall. The best part is the stone complements our front entrance wonderfully. We recommend Soni and his team and look forward to working with them in the future!

FAnthony's Construction Concrete & Masonry Inc
I hired Anthony construction because the price was fair and Victor(Manager or Owner) sounds nice. I agreed to pay him in full since he said he will give me a 10% discount. The price after the 10% discount was $8,820.00. I gave him the credit card and paid in full. However, after a few day I see my card is charged over $10,000 dollar and I emailed and called Victor and told him that they need to stop charging the card immediately, since it is over the agreement. The day was Thursday when I checked my account. Victor said they will stop and return the money. In the mean time I told my back about the activity. My back advised me to cancel the card and start to take action. However, I told the bank that I want to give him the benefit of the daunt since he said he will return Friday or Monday. However, this company continue to charge my credit card. By Friday morning the charge became $13,948.82. This means they charged my card $5,128.82 over the contract. I emailed Victor that the worked does not start until I get the money back but I have not head from him. The day before the contract started I called Victor and I told him that I was waiting all this time and did not get my money back and that I am breaking the contract and taking a legal action through my bank. I lost my trust on him and his company. To my surprise, he asked me what if he send me a check for the difference. Why doesn't he return it electronically like all legit company do? Why should I deal with his check? what if his check bounce? and mostly why would I pay interest for his over charge? The whole thing sound fishy and I never got a proper answer. One time he tells me that he will pay it back and the other time he tells me he will contact his suppliers. The suppliers have nothing to do with it because he is the one charging it. Why should I care about them. If Angie list wants, I have all the email conversation to present to you. Finally, I cancelled the project and I told the back to take a legal action.

Worked with Todd Kidder to design a great patio. We had to meet several times to get all the details correct because I'm very picky & had a certain look I wanted to achieve. The patio build itself went great, the workers worked in in freezing weather for a week. I'll let the pictures speak for themselves. Overall I'm very happy.
Recent Review: Walter Bainbridge was on time, presented us with a complete computer generated plan, made changes to our specifications while we looked on and had an interesting design. We have not made a final decision but Walter is definitely in the running.
Recent Review: We loved our entire experience with Acclaim Home Services. Of the multiple providers we received estimates from, Toney was far and away the most knowledgeable and the most thoughtful listener and respectful partner in the process. He actually came by 3 times before the work began, first to give an estimate, second to refine the estimate after we asked about the possibility of doing something else (ultimately we decided not to do the something else after he looked again at our yard and said he wouldn't recommend it), and last to confirm everything before they got started. I cannot stress enough how much more comprehensive is his knowledge of all things landscaping and architecture than other people who do similar work, and that expertise really made a difference. Ray and Dionel did the majority of the work and they were excellent communicators as well as being overall friendly, knowledgeable and courteous professionals. The day after the project was done, but before the final walkthrough, we realized a very small area, a couple inches wide, on the back side of one of our deck posts hadn't gotten stained. Dionel returned while we were at work and took care of it immediately. In the past we have of course always hired contractors whom we liked, but then sometimes the crews the contractors sent to do the work turned out not to be especially considerate. We definitely did not have that issue here. That's not to say Toney was absent. He stopped by a couple times during the project and also met with us when it was complete. He spent time educating us on how to keep everything up, how to know when the plants need more more or less watering, when to prune, etc. It is clear he has a sense of pride in the work his team did for us, and he wants us to enjoy it for the long haul. He also reminded us that everything is under warranty, but I feel confident we won't need to invoke that. We are not interested in learning to do home maintenance or upgrades ourselves, so we've worked with A LOT of contractors in the 10 years we've lived in Alexandria. Acclaim Home Services is definitely at the very top of that list and we would recommend them without hesitation to anyone. Included is a before and after of the back yard.
Recent Review: Very well. We went with a revised foot print for our patio based on recommendations from owner Sean Conway. While it added to the cost, the end product was worth it. Lenny and his crew worked very hard to ensure a quality product and did an excellent job. They even adjusted the gate on my fence that wasn't closing correctly.

Recent Review: A+ + + + +! We wish there was a way to give a higher grade than A! From start to finish, amazing customer service. We had originally contracted with a large landscape design company to build a patio with a custom fire pit. The contracted company was unable to complete the task. We called in Fireside (wish we would have used them for the whole project) and now have a gorgeous fire pit. From the start, Tom was courteous and professional. Our first sign that something was different from other contractors, was that he actually came and made a form mold of the pit to have the insert fabricated exactly to size. The insert arrived and was installed the same week. We cannot convey how superior the service that Fireside has provided us. Please do not hesitate to use this business. We give them our highest recommendation!

Recent Review: It went very well. Adam Ford was the Representative. He was informative and provided useful ideas and suggestions without the hard sell. After the meeting, we decided to put our plans to replace our current patio on hold for one year. We hope to follow up with Maryland Sunrooms/Four Seasons Sunrooms in September 2015
