I had estimates for a small job to fix a drooping retaining wall and repoint a stone walkway in several places where the mortar had come away. One guy said it would cost $300. Right! Another guy said the whole retaining wall had to be redone. Cost: $3500. Another guy said $700, then came down to $500. I didn't trust any of them.
Then, I met Brian. On time. Great quote. Great communication. Arrived on time. Spent the whole day hard at work and then cleaned the work site, hosing down my walkway, driveway and sidewalk. I mean, what other contractor cleans up like that? No one, except Brian.
The retaining wall is flush and looks great. So does the walkway. Brian is worth every penny. Sadly, he doesn't build fences. That's my next job. So, hire this hardworking perfectionist. I'm glad I did. You will, too.
