Double R Masonry was one of 4 different concrete contractors from whom I requested a quote. Ron Rugelis was the only one who took the time to come out to the site twice to assess the conditions and offer suggestions that would contribute to a higher quality outcome. After learning that part of the slab was to be located in an area that had been back-filled with topsoil two years earlier, he stated that the only way to ensure that the slab did not settle over time was to excavate down to the previously undisturbed soil and then fill with tamped stone up to the slab's base. His quote was comprehensive and sufficiently detailed to provide all the information necessary to obtain the town's building permits. He was very knowledgeable, professional and polite. Prior to signing the contract, Ron always responded promptly when I called with questions on the methods and materials he intended to use. Ron and his crew arrived as soon as weather permitted and completed the excavation, stone, and rebar work all in a single day. He assisted with the positioning and anchoring of the conduits and took additional care to leave ample space for the electrician to complete his work. The amount of stone required for the base was a bit more than Ron had originally estimated, but he maintained the terms of the contract and did not require additional payment to cover the cost of the stone. Ron returned the following day and rough graded the area around the slab excavation and even back-filled the drain pipe trench - something that was not part of the contract. Within two days of being notified that the electrician had completed the necessary electrical bonding of the rebar, Ron scheduled the delivery of the concrete and personally worked on getting the pour and finishing right, taking extra time to ensure that the slab was solid, level, and finished uniformly. He returned the following day to remove the forms, back-fill around the slab, and seal the concrete surface. The final result: an outstanding job that was done professionally and in a timely fashion. The two assistants that came to the site were hard working, polite, and friendly. This project required that Ron's work be done in several stages, coordinating with other contractors. Despite the busy season and the numerous trips required to the site, Ron made a significant effort to complete the job as quickly as possible. He went above and beyond to ensure that the project was done correctly and the site was left as clean as possible. Double R Masonry wasn't the lowest bid on the project, but the methods and materials used by Ron to ensure a quality result, along with the extra effort to coordinate with the other contractors provided tremendous value for the price. I would strongly recommend Double R Masonry to others, and will be contacting them in the future whenever I have a need for high quality masonry work.
