The brick chimney on my 55-year-old house had missing and loose bricks, crumbling mortar, and severe staining. Also, when the house was reroofed five years ago, the roofers did not do a proper job of installing flashing against the chimney. I first contacted Dave Robinson mid-summer, and he came out to examine the project. Initially he thought he could get to it in late August but he then said it ...

David was professional and takes pride in his work, ensuring that the job is done correctly. You’ll have to wait your turn for services because he’s busy, but that’s typical for any good contractor. Response time for initial project coordination can sometimes be slow, but services performed as promised (schedule, scope, and price). Already asked for a quote to do more work...

David is incredible to work with and was spot-on with pricing. Once he started work he was in constant communication and gave us daily updates. The work area was always left clean, and he was extremely helpful when a large amount of unexpected termite damage was found. We are thrilled with the finished product and will be contacting him again for any future work.

David was great to work with. We communicated by email, phone and in-person and he was always very quick to respond and answer any questions I had. David and his crew re-built the top layers of our chimney, inserted a liner to our water heater, poured a concrete cap and sealed/waterproofed the brick. At the end of the job he actually came in $300 under the amount originally estimated. David clearl...

Amazing work, good communication, and easy to do business with. Dave turned an old brick fireplace into something that we can be proud of.

The construction of a brick hearth for the basement wood stove was straightforward. The job was performed quickly, and the end result more than met my expectations. The laying of a tile floor was a bit more complicated. I'd had a couple of contractors come out to look at it, and due to the uneven concrete floor they recommended I find a good tile guy. I mentioned the problem while getting an estim...

I did not have to call to remind him he called me on Tuesday and asked if the following day was convenient, it was. I had forgotten to mention, when he came and inspected, about a hole in the concrete floor through which the previous owners drained their washing machine through a pipe in to a brook that runs at the side of the property, don't ask,. I texted him and sent a photo and asked if that c...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
The brick work and stucco in the basement of my old house was crumbling. David came and took a look, he responded immediately through Angies List, and recommended to remove the stucco and replace. He told me he wouldn't be able to come till winter when he would be able to then do indoor work which was fine by me.

It went well. Dave addressed my concerns and was able to take care of the job in the time he indicated. As he completed the job on two separate days, the follow-up and responsiveness was adequate to all the questions I had. I would definitely hire him for another job.

Dave was so busy, we actually had to wait about a month until he could get to our project - but since it was an outside project, and not interfering with things, we could do that. We also felt that he was worth our patience and trust. In the end, we were right and he completely exceeded our expectations in all categories. Dave works with 1-2 other guys that he supervises, and did that throughout t...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
We decided this year that it was time to address our home curb appeal and outside hardscaping needs. To prepare, we removed all plantings in front of the house to have better access to work on the project. We then had a handful of landscapers to our home to give us estimates to remove and replace our existing 4' wide concrete stairs with 6' wide granite stairs, a front asphalt walkway 3' wide x 60' long with brick pavers and widened to 4', and a back walkway 3' x 30' long with matching pavers. After receiving estimates and debating whether we could do the entire project within budget, we remembered Dave Robinson (DR Custom Masonry) had given us a great estimate to build a chimney a few years back that we couldn't do at the time. We had Dave back out and not only did he give us a great estimate to do all of the work, we felt an immediate trust and rapport with him - and thus decided to go with him.
