Our concrete driveway and the concrete around our pool was broken and raised up from a serious root problem. They took out the old concrete, got rid of the roots, and poured new concrete which looks great. They also redid the decorative brickwork around the driveway. Our front porch had a broken corner and bad tile work. They fixed it (and also replaced a post they found had dryrot) and redid it with beautiful brickwork. When they fixed the concrete around the pool, the did so without breaking any of the pool tiles and this pool is quite old. They were always on time, very easy to deal with, and cleaned up their job site very nicely. They were happy to accomodate any extras we wanted, and they were quite responsive even on weekends and evenings to all our questions with both phone calls and emails. It was a good experience.

“I found them on Angie's List. I went with Darren because I got 3 referrals from people I called and they raved about him. He was just as good as they said he was. He was on time daily. Both him and his wife are fantastic. I communicated mostly by internet. I took the design of the BBQ from leaflet. He used stack stone, and flagstone. I called the company that I got the leaflet from and they told me it would be $25,000. He was able to recreate the BBQ for $7800 including all the brickwork, concrete, etc. It is very beautiful and looks very nice. I would and have already recommend him. He is quite busy, but he is worth waiting for.”

“It was the best experience I've ever had with any contractor of any kind. From my very first call to his office and his lovely wife Andrea, I felt I was in professional and friendly hands. Darren is a master at what he does, and a sheer pleasure to have around. His work ethic is top of the line. Everything is done carefully, correctly, and neatly; at the end of every day, there is no mess left around, everything is tidied up and put away. His knowledge of his craft is wide-ranging, and his attention to detail is unparalleled. He had great ideas, and steered me away from mistakes I would have made in design and concept, and always in the nicest and most respectful way. He was on the job himself every day, and always available, and his guys were professional, polite, and hard workers. I cannot praise Darren highly enough -- this was a rewarding experience from start to finish. But really, he needs to charge more! The cost was far too reasonable!”

“Darren was wonderful to work with. He has so many beautiful and creative ideas, yet he works within your budget perfectly. He and his crew were very professional, on time, and cleaned up every night before leaving. The job was completed before his own deadline. I would definitely hire him again!.”

“We are incredibly happy with Stonecraft's transformation of our home. We employed Darren (owner and brick mason) to put a used brick veneer on our home, along 40 feet of wall. His crew did a great job of removing the existing siding, and preparing the house for the brick. Darren was here every day to supervise, and then did the actual application of the brick himself. The finished product has received many complements from our friends and neighbors, and very importantly, they cleaned up before leaving each night. We had interviewed numerous other companies prior to deciding on Stonecraft, and we are positive we made the best choice.”

“I have to agree with the reviews here so far. Darren gave us creative suggestions for our project that took it to the next level in terms of quality but kept the price extremely reasonable - true crafts-man-like work.
I did my homework before hiring Stonecraft Masonry, and there's no doubt they're a bargain. I've seen jobs that cost twice as much and aren't half as good as what Darren gave us. Darren and Andrea are consummate professionals. It was a pleasure to work with them on our project.”
