Review by in Newtonville, MA
Project: Install Brick or Stone Patios, Walks, and Steps
Renato is very professional and we are extremely happy with our new patio. The work was done in a very timely fashion, within 2 weeks.

Renato was responsive and his crew did a wonderful job on my double patio and walkway in my back yard in 8 days . Their price was very competitive. I am very happy with the results and would recommend them with out hesitation.

I hired them to build stone steps and a paver walkway. Unfortunately I had difficulty getting them to understand exactly what I wanted the finished result to look like. They will blame this on me (and they did, at the end of the job), but still I'm frustrated that the result did not come out the way that I THOUGHT that I had explained it to them. This was partly due to communication issues. The bosses were not on site during most of the project and it was difficult to communicate with the workers. They also added additional costs at the end which I did not expect, saying that the proposal was made with various assumptions (such as a limited number of steps) which they did NOT mention up front in the contract. Furthermore, they made a complete mess of my lawn and driveway and did a poor job of cleaning up after the job. After I complained about that, they came back to clean up, but spent barely 15 minutes doing a half-hearted job of it. Even after they "cleaned up", I had to spend many days doing the cleanup myself picking up scattered stone chips from rock cutting, gravel, sand, rocks, bits of concrete, etc. all over the place, which is ugly, difficult to get up off the lawn, and poses a risk of flying debris when mowing the lawn. Also, large areas of damaged lawn (killed grass due to being buried under piles of construction material for a long time), as well as torn up turf from driving and turning the excavator across the lawn (that was 20-30 feet away from where the work was taking place; I don't know why they had to drive the tractor way over there). If you go into your project with an expectation that there will be a significant amount of additional time and expense required (for top soil, grass seed, etc) after the job is "done", then maybe the need for this extra work won't bother you. But just be prepared for it. The completed steps and walk look fine (although as mentioned, not exactly what I envisioned), so just for the aesthetic appearance of finished work, they do a good job. They just fell short of my expectations though for all the reasons described above.

Clear details not given prior to completion of project. Customer is not the expert. The company is. So we would have believed that all options would have been discussed. Once example is while discussing project, it was stated that customer has bad knees and stuggles on stairs. Then when project is on its way to completion, it turns out there is one less stair than before project. Company stated in email that we would have put another step had you asked. Pitiful. Also, the surrounding landscaping was left messy with parts destroyed. We will state also though that the work was very nice. Just be careful to understand exactly what you are getting. Sincerely

MassStone did a beautiful job building a new paver walkway from the driveway to the side door. I needed a wheelchair accessible curb cut, and Mass Stone took the time to explore several alternative designs with me. The work crew knew their jobs, and worked through bad weather to get the job done. The resulting walkway is beautiful....passers by have stopped to compliment it several times. I would recommend Mass Stone wholeheartedly to anyone looking to get a stone pathway!

I have a gorgeous patio that looks fabulous...as long as it is not raining. Nilto Goncalves, the son of the owner, came out and gave me a fair estimate and an agreeable install start time. I emphasized that the size of the yard (small) and the grade (sloping slightly toward house) and existing walkway and concrete slab would make setting the grade challenging. Based on their stellar reviews on Home Advisor, I hired them. On the day of the install, Renato Goncalves, the owner, came out on site. I emphasized that getting the grade right was going to be tricky. He stated that he was installing a patio and "didn't want me to end up with a swimming pool". We even eliminated part of the project when Renato told me that if we added that section, we would have to install a French drain. I agreed to just keep the patio and skip the addition along the existing slab. Nothing further was discussed about adding additional drainage just pitching the patio to keep water away from the house. As the guys worked, I expressed concern about where the water would end up. But they seemed to know what they were doing. I expressed this concern in an email to Renato as the work was underway, but deferred to their experience and his assurance that I would not end up with a swimming pool. Guess what? I ended up with a swimming pool. The water sheets off the patio and ends up pooling against the stairs and house. High tide is 3-4 inches which has to be broomed away to get it dry. When I called Renato about this problem, his only solution was to install a dry well. He agreed to do it "at cost" but it was still going to cost $800+ to get it installed - and I would end up with the very thing I was trying to avoid when I agreed to eliminate part of the job. The landscaper I hired separately to complete the grading and sodding told me that where Renato wanted to install the drywell would not take care of the bulk of the runoff - I would still have the pool. He showed me exactly where the water was pitching from and worked with me on swaling and pitching the yard to slough water away - work that we were not planning on doing but now had no choice. Pros: Great looking patio that has gotten compliments (in dry weather). Nice crew of hard working guys. Cons: I had to hire a landscaper to come in and completely regrade the yard and - ultimately add a drainage swale because the patio is just plain pitched wrong. Follow up calls with Renato were along the lines of "I told you you were going to have to install drainage." Um...no...or I would have had that quoted as part of the job and not had you come back and dig up the yard a second time. Also, the two other quotes I got never mentioned having to add a dry well for drainage. Bottom line: didn't want a swimming pool, ended up with a swimming pool, had to spend $$$ to try and make the swimming pool go away - and I am still not sure we have eradicated the problem. If the patio had been pitched the
