It went great. Job was finished quickly and professionally. Carmen was very helpful and when it came to making minor changes, it was not a problem at all. The guys he used to do the work were professional and worked quick. Was not disappointed in anyway.

I signed a contract with American Exteriors and Masonry on 13 April, 2016. As of today, 14 October, 2017 they have not completed the work and I am filing a complaint with the BBB. I contracted this company to build a stone patio, deck, screened in porch, and under-deck shed. While the quality of the work performed by their sub-contractors is generally very good, this company has suffered significant turnover in personnel which resulted in numerous and lengthy delays. The customer service and response was initially quite good, but has declined to the point where they have not responded to my numerous inquiries over the past 2 months to complete the final items on the contract. Even prior to that, getting a crew out here to finish simple punch list items (caulking, broken stone replacement, buried drain pipes, etc.) was a very difficult and lengthy process. It took months of calls and texts to get a response. Nate is the primary salesman who sits down with clients to decide on the scope of the project and negotiate cost. He is very personable and knowledgeable, but I have found he makes promises the owner, Carmen, will deny or simply refuse to fulfill. For example, after leaving large amounts of debris in my backyard for a long time after the majority of deck and patio work were done, Nate promised they would grade and overseed to replace the extensive amount of backyard grass that had been destroyed. Carmen later declined to do so, saying it wasn't in the contract. So be it. Well, 2 things that ARE in the contract that this company hasn't completed are lighting for the stairs and an external hose bib on the deck. I cannot recommend a company that has such poor follow through to completion... especially on such a large (and expensive) project.

Nate provided us an estimate based on our requirements on April 7th 2017 and collected 20% of the cost with an agreement to start the work by June 1st 2017. The contract was one page and he showed us several models to let us the finish of our deck. After providing them the PLAT on 05/25/2017, we were hoping the project would start by June 1st week. I was constantly in touch with them, as we want the deck and the patio to be completed in order to host our house warming party. I was told that the project schedule was on time. The trouble started with the beginning of the project. The footing failed several inspections and I was worried why would a renowned company unable to get it passed after several attempts. The answer was,lack of supervision or directions to the crew. Then came another shock, Fairfax county pulled the permit because the plan didn't meet the county requirements. Nate blamed it on the building, whereas he missed to provide proper planning based on the existing building. My neighbour who has a similar house started the deck project with another company and they were able to plan it properly. Their construction went forward without any hiccups. Their project took 15 days to complete, whereas our project sat there without any progress. To proceed further, I was asked to pay for the change in cost to meet the county requirement. I was provided an estimate and signed a contract but in the through the project I was asked to pay more for none of my mistake. My only mistake here was going with American Exteriors and Masonry. Now, the company had issues with the crew and again I took the hit for it. The project was halted until they could find another team to work on our project. The real problem started with the materials. I was shown a different model which had vinyl handrail and I was told my deck would be similar to it. They started putting wooden handrail, when I called Nate to discuss about it, I was asked to pay the difference in cost. When I insisted that we agreed on vinyl railing in the initial discussion, it fell in deaf ears. I was asked to pay more to get what was initially shown during the initial estimate. Finally, they finished the project on 07/21/2017 and my party was on 07/22/2017. All the materials and trash were all sitting in my drive way when I had my guest, it was not a pretty site. I thought we are done with this project and I was so wrong. The deck failed the final inspection. Despite the failed inspection, the company wanted me to pay for the deck. I insisted the payment will be made only when the deck passed inspection. I had to leave for 4 weeks vacation. Prior to leaving, I wrote an email to Nate and Carmen about the inspection and how I am not happy about the finishing of the deck. I didn't get any response. The deck and patio passed inspection in the last week of August. When I came from vacation they wanted the payment but didn't want to address my concern. Our Deck and Patio is completed after 90 days and the outcome is not something we agreed. Completely frustrated with lack of responsibility from American Exteriors and Masonry. If you are looking for a company who you can't trust and will give your hard time throughout the project, then look no where... American Exteriors and Masonry is your choice.

We were incredibly pleased and impressed with American Exteriors and Masonry! They were professional and helpful right from the beginning when we were designing our new patio & steps and were in constant communication with us during all phases of the process. They offered a good price, started the project earlier than planned, and finished it very quickly (without sacrificing quality)! We would highly recommend them to anyone and have already given their contact information to two of our neighbors.
Response by American Exteriors and Masonry, LLC: We thank you for your business and your review. Enjoy your new Patio! American Exteriors & Masonry

Very satisfied with the work that American Exteriors provided. The install teams were professional, clean, and courteous. Crews showed up at the appointed time, with all the materials and completed the entire project on schedule as described in the contract. Finished work resulted in outcomes that exceeded our expectations. Priced fairly, but this is not a contractor to be selected on lowest price “ this contractor provides professional quality workmanship and a steadfast warranty on materials and workmanship. I will use them again on other projects and have recommended them to others.

Review by in Ashburn, VA
We had them install a 789 sq. ft. flagstone patio and walkway in our back yard and side of the house with a fire pit. I've dealt with many contractors before and these guys are serious business. If you have dealt with contractors going missing for days/weeks and projects shifting to the right by days/weeks. You share the same pain as I did. When we hired these guys to do the patio, I was afraid same thing will happen, so I was a lot more picky. I was surprised by the responsiveness, professionalism, and care for the project. I can't say enough about American Exteriors. They even notice flaws that I didn't see and fixed it after we were done with the final walk. Then we had a problem with a flagstone that was not American Exteriors fault, Lawn care guys broke pieces off of it and they took care of it with a smile. Pricing Note: They come in a bit higher, not by much, but in return you can ensure the job gets done and completed in a timely fashion, and worry free. You get what you pay for. Side note: PLEASE take care of these guys when they come to work at your home. It doesn't cost much to be nice and caring to these guys, they work hard and when you try to lift one of the pieces, it's not light.
Response by American Exteriors and Masonry, LLC: We thank you for your business and your review! It was a pleasure working with you. Enjoy your new Patio!

The company was on top of everything and stayed in constant communication with us to make sure things were going as planned. Both Zach (project manager) and Kevin (site supervisor) were very easy to work with and helped come up with ideas for the couple issues we ran into. I felt very comfortable with them and they stayed involved during the entire install. The workers were always professional and courteous as well.
Response by American Exteriors and Masonry, LLC: Thank you for your business and your review.
