I highly recommend Capuano Construction for their masonry work. The men who did the work were polite and efficient, and did a great job of managing around all the rain we've had this fall. The work itself is top quality. And, wonder of wonders, my invoice was several thousand dollars less than the original quote!

Exceeded our expectations. The wall is in the front of the house and probably paid for itself with improved curb appeal. The wall is beautiful and complements an existing wall in the front. It's a fieldstone wall and the selection of stones and the way they are put together to make the wall is amazing. The workers and the sub contractors were neat and clean. They did not make any excess noise and ...

Larry contacted us within 2-3 days of my initial email to set up an appointment to look at the foundation. He was responsive and showed up on time. I found him professional, he explained what we were looking at in clear language, and the quote they gave us was reasonable. We've opted to go with the other company that gave us a quote, but only because a) that company had already done work for frien...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
Inspect and provide necessary repairs to our foundation - our property slopes such that we have a walk-out basement and the back of the foundation is almost entirely exposed. One corner in particular is in bad shape. We wanted to know if we just needed repointing or if more serious repairs were needed, and we needed someone to do that work.

Many problems after the first masonry contractor incorrectly did the job, such as by not building the chimney to the correct height.  No problems since Larry did the job, despite strong winds, downpours, etc.  Also, unlike the other contractor's workers, Larry didn't leave sand all over the driveway and debris on the lawn.  Further, Larry backs his work, whereas, at least in this instance, the fir...

Larry and and his team did a great job raising the height of our chimney 14' that was necessary due to renovations. They did the entire job in the middle of winter in about a week. That included staging and scaffolding as well as heating the bricks/mortar to make sure they dried correctly and acid washing the new bricks to match the old. The job looks great. incidentally, $2,300 of the job was for...

His work is superb and was completed in plenty of time ahead of the other contractor's scheduled work. We look forward to hiring Larry again, whenever we have future masonry or concrete projects.

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
We had some miscellaneous concrete and masonry repairs, that needed to be fixed before another contractor could do their work. Larry responded to our initial inquiry in a timely manner,  which is a very high priority for us in hiring a contractor.  He came by during the week and gave us an evaluation of the work to be completed an a very reasonable price( compared to the other estimates that we received).

They were very good.  My experience with them was terrific.  They were very responsive.  They came when they said they will be here.  They were right on budget.  I changed my order that was very fair.  The people were always polite and cleaned up after themselves.

I used the services of Capuano Construction.  They built block walls.  They constructed a 150 ft long new foundation wall and 30” high and with re-bar cement.
