Stone & Gravel reviews in Bradenton

  • Went perfectly. No complaints here. Peter the owner worked side by side with his hard working staff. My job was labor intensive. Lots of dirt had to be moved. They worked hard lifting the concrete stone for the wall.

  • I found them to be professional, courteous, and hard working. We have a pool in the backyard with pavers around it and Mark was able to get the exact same bricks for our driveways so that everything matches. I wasn't sure how the entryway would come out, but I have to say that they did a phenomenal job. They even replaced the part of the sidewalk coming off of the driveway so that it blended better to the driveway. The quality of their work is superb and they far exceeded my expectations.

  • By far, this was the most professional, courteous and highest quality work that we have experienced since moving to Florida four years ago.  From beginning to end, Lenny was punctual, highly responsive and provided extremely high quality workmanship.  He responded to our request for a quote within 24 hours, and his price was extremely competitive.  He gave us the addresses of several other driveways in our area so that we could see first hand the quality of his work as well as get ideas of the paver colors.  He was very helpful in assisting us in our decision on colors, etc.  The work was started on schedule, and the driveway removal as well as the paver installation went without incident.  All questions during the paver installation were addressed promptly. We were provided with extra pavers in the event they are needed in the future, and all debris was removed promptly. The new driveway has substantially increased the "curb appeal" of our home and we absolutely love it.  We highly recommend Besterman Hardscapes for any of your paver other hardscaping needs.

  • Pros:
    - Punctual feedback:  The owner is courteous and quick with (texts) communication.  For the most part, he only texts.
    - Expert work:  The crew is good with installation and repairs.
    Cons:
     
    - Punctuality:  Getting the company started and finishing the work were chores.  Jobs that should have taken a week ran more than three weeks.  Crew scheduling is part of the problem.  Workers arrive at 10 AM, break an hour for lunch and depart by 4 PM.  This makes the company labor rate excessive.
    - Supervision:  The owner doesn't supervise his crew.  Instructions to the owner seldom reached workers or his subcontractor. We're living with missed assignments.  Crew members seemed diffident about responding to client requests.
    - Clean-up:  Terrible.  The crew knows how to install, but not how to leave a clean premises.  We're still sweeping sand.
    - Price:  Unreasonably high.  Goodwin's is the 2nd paving company recommended to us by our landscaping contractor, who when pushed admitted he didn't know Goodwin's well.  We should have bid the work, but being new to the area and trusting our landscaper, we bought his recommendation.
    Bottom line:
    There are better paving contractors out there.  We've used Southeastern Brick Pavers for another job, with excellent results.
    - Fred T.
  • Our job started out with a large extension of our paved patio, including incorporating a fountain in the middle of the paved area and using a radius pattern all long the edges to create a curved and fluid feel to the outdoor space. Since we did not replace the existing patio but only added to it. Chris had to use new pavers for the additional space. To make everything flow better, he took up some of the old pavers and mixed them in with the new ones so that we would not have a hard edge between the old and the new pavers but rather they blended together. This was time consuming and tedious and was actually his suggestion for a smoother transition, yet he did not increase his price quote for this added labor. The second job he did for us was to extend our patio a second time. Again, it looked great! Then in November of last year, he fixed a small sink hole under the original pavers where an old tree trunk had rotted away and also installed a French under our pavers that was under an overhang. Years of runoff had caused the sand under the pavers to start washing away and create a drainage slant toward our house. Chris installed a drain under the pavers and leveled everything off. His work is creative and extremely well done, with lots of detail. Both he and his son are a pleasure to work with! I won't use anyone else for paver/masonry work!

  • Kelly Potts should be avoided at all costs. He didn't come off as a very professional person but he sounded like he knew what he was doing and I didn't really want a guy in a suit and tie doing my paver work anyway. Kelly was a nightmare. The amount of sand and debris in our pool would have destroyed most pools (ours was being replaced anyway). There were pavers in the bottom of the pool when they were "done." They destroyed the grass right outside our lanai. They left sand piles in our lava rock. The pool work is not to my satisfaction either. This guy is a complete loser and you joined Angie's List to avoid losers like Kelly Potts.

  • It took him 4 months to come out again. He didn't cut out all of the roots like he said he did and it caused my tile to break and pop up. He said he would get back to me months ago and he still has not.  He is very unresponsive, poor workmanship, and doesn't follow up. He caused more damage than I originally had.
    - Joyce N.
  • Pete and the boys did very well, my plants and my front yard looks very nice.
    - Marlene T.
  • Ver happy with the work, responsiveness and punctuality
    - Malini S.
  • Appointments were on time, job well done.
    - Jean & Gary R.
