    After I agreed to the estimate and approved the work Joe and his crew came out and did the job in one day. They removed the old top of the chimney and replaced it. They added some other details to direct water and have it drain away from the chimney top. They treated the bricks to protect them from further water damage. They fixed the loose brick and the places where the mortar had crumbled. Afterwards they cleaned up the concrete from where they had removed the top of the chimney and used a leaf blower to remove some of the dust. One of them even did me a favor and pushed closed a sticky window on the second floor. It was very easy to work with Joe and his crew.

    It was a much bigger job than I had anticipated but I'm so glad Joe realized that the chimney needed some work. A few days after I received the estimate and agreed to the work he called me one morning and asked if he could come that day. He and his crew were able to get it all done in one day. They removed the old top and replaced it with some added protections to enhance drainage and protect it from future water damage. They treated the bricks down to about the roof line to protect them more water and weather damage. He explained all that he would be doing I felt like it was all good quality touches to not only repair but to protect. Of course he also fixed the loose brick and removed and then filled in the mortar/chipmunk damage.

    They did all they said they would and did it well. They kept us in the loop about when the job would be done and the approximate time the tech would be out to do the job. It got delayed a day but that was because of rain and they called us to let us know the job would be done the next day. Photos of before and after were provided to show what needed work/repairs/replacing and then the finished product. There was even a price reduction as they were able to repair something that originally was expected to need more comprehensive work. All in all, a great job done. I would definitely use them again!

    Great!   He matched the brick colors and patterns so it looks better than the original.  He put a limestone cap on the top of the chimney and cut it so it has a bit of overhang so it protects the bricks better.  It looks awesome!  He's an artist and craftsman.  And really interesting to talk with.
    We'd definitely hire him again or recommend him for any stonework.  His eye for color and patterns made the results look great.
    Thank you!

    We were experiencing foundation blocks that were falling apart on our garage.  They gave us a bid and we agreed upon a date to complete the work.  They arrived on the day, however they were early.  We had an appointment that morning and told him that we wouldn't be home until 9:00 AM.  They arrived at 8:00 AM as I was leaving, so I had to rework my schedule for the morning so someone would be home.  

    But the work that they preformed was excellent and they cleaned up after themselves.  They removed the blocks that were beyone repair and installed new ones.  They also tuckpointed all the joint on that side of the garage so it looks uniform and hopefully will prevent further issues.  They did break my hose, which I didn't notice for a couple of days later.  But, since they did a good job, I didn't bother to contact them about it.

    Our project took place in four phases - 1) Design, 2) Tear off,  3) Hardie Board siding and 4) Stonework.
    The most difficult part of the process for us was the design work. Despite working with Barrier's designer, who helped us select stone that would work with the style of our home and the color siding we were considering, our plan came together after Garen's suggestion to buy paint samples of the color siding we were considering. We were going from a drab, off-white stucco board to Hardie Boothbay Blue (a dramatic change for us) and for some reason, the designer's drawings didn't work as well as slapping the paint on part of the existing exterior and standing back to look at it during different lighting levels throughout the day.
    Once we had the design finalized, tear off took place the end of August and took a day. The crew was fantastic - our front yard stayed neat and the dumpster was off set on our drive way so we could continue to get cars in the garage - and they were able to answer any questions we had about what would happen when.
    The Hardie Board, which went on the second story of our home and across a front porch and attached garage, took about three days to install. We had selected a shake style for the second story and lap siding across the garage and front porch. The finished siding exceeded our expectations in how it looked from the front, as well as how nice it looked where it butted up against the existing siding on the sides of our home.
    The stonework was last and took two days to complete. The product that arrived looked like what we had selected (I worried because I've heard stories about how they can be different assortments than what you see in the sample).
    Once the project was complete Garen had us look everything over for a final walk-through. We had three minor punch list items to fix and these were noted and promptly addressed.
    All in all, everyone from our newspaper delivery man to the neighbors have commented on how nice our home looks. This was a 1984 traditional two story with a shallow front sloping roof and no interest to speak of. Barrier helped us give it some visual interest and we are very, very happy with the end result.

    The principal of Stone Masonry, Micah Forsburg, came out to estimate the job when I was at work, but my wife was at home.  He helped her shovel snow before he left from the unexpected May 2013 snow.  He provided  the estimate for the work and after I reviewed it, I accepted it.  Micah's brick man Angus Kinnard scheduled the work for early June and showed up promptly when the on the day work was to commence.  Angus was personable and efficient.  Rainy weather caused some delays, particularly during the phase of work on the chimney with scaffolding. 
    Angus completed the chimney work with the help of one person to assist him in removing the heavy false ducts that showed on the chimney cap.  The work was done professionally and efficiently and the cleanup was well taken care of.  I thought it a good job all around and, although expensive, required several man hours and a good deal of material.
    I was completely satisfied with all phases of the work and communication with Micah Forsburg and Angus Kinnard

    The overall experience was great. He informed us that we had bricks that were loose and needed to be repaired and he instructed us on what was needed for a new fireplace door.
    He guided us in everything he was doing when he was cleaning the chimney. He checked to see how much creosote was on the inside lining of the chimney and what we would need to do in order to maintain the chimney.
    He explained everything as he went along and it was in easy to understand wording.
    I would definitely have them perform this service again.

    We contracted John Dalnes to update our fireplace. We had a very dated looking and barely functional fireplace. We bought a wood burning insert and asked John to help us update the stone and accomadate the new insert. He helped guide us through the selection of stone, handled the stone logistics, tore out the old brick, and laid the new stone. John listened to what we wanted and made some great suggestions. For example, he suggested acid washing and saving the original hearth stone. This turned out great and saved us money. He was also able to accomadate our desire to have a dry stacked look and this also turned out beautiful. He was a master at fitting the jigsaw puzzle of pieces together into a very natural and beautiful layout. He was great to have in our house working on the project and he even had our daughter and quot;helpingand quot;. It has been over a year and I still enjoy sitting in front of the fireplace and admiring the stone. It totally transformed our basement family room into the most comfortable room in the house. We love it.

    I decided to wait until next spring so the house would not be torn up. The estimate was reasonable and their explanations made sense. They made sure that we laid a good foundation for them to do their work on instead of covering old problems.
