rebuild of retaining wall

I interviewed 8 masoners about rebuilding a 20-year old, low retaining wall around my front garden. I was very impressed with Joseph of JD Build and found him very pleasant to interact with. He was enthusiastic about re-building a dry stone wall. He described the scope of the job and kept to that description, including completing the entire job in just two days. He arrived when he said that he would and kept the work area tidy and safe. He responded promptly to emails. He fully respected the roots of the large maple around which he had to work. As we were finishing up, he noticed a problem with some other stone work on my property and described how he could improve it. I really enjoy working with an expert who lends his/her skill to other areas of my home and isn’t anxious to just get the cheque and leave. I would highly recommend Joseph of JD Build for other masonry projects.

Masonry repair and service done by JD Build Masonry exceeded our expectations

We had a large stone garden retaining wall adjacent to our driveway, which had been poorly installed years ago. It was falling over and needed to be rebuilt which we wanted to do using the existing bricks. Also our flagstone staircase needed cement repairs. Joseph and his crew were excellent, respectful, polite, neat and tidy and the work they did was exceptional. It looks amazing now that it is finished and we could not be more pleased. When I needed to speak with Joseph he made himself available and so the communication was great -- I find not all contractors make themselves available by phone when you need them, Joseph did. The original quote was what we paid plus some extra work we requested in addition, at a most reasonable price. We quoted the job out to 3 different contractors and this price we determined to be very fair -- plus Joseph didn't try to tell us we couldn't re-use existing materials which one other contractor tried to do to drive up the price. JD's writeup when I had researched the company specified masonry repairs and that is what we were most interested in. The crew of JD Build Masonry were honest, hardworking and did a super job. Other than a couple of days of rain which only slightly delayed their progress, they finished right when they said they would. I would highly recommend Joseph and his team.

Tuckpointing

JD was a pleasure to deal with and his team did a good job of removing old mortar and replacing it with new mortar that matched the existing. Although, he was difficult to schedule since he is so high in demand, once we set a date, the job was done as expected and price paid was as quoted. His team went the extra mile to find and replace cracks that was not originally part of the quote. Also, they did a reasonable job of cleaning up.

Unfortunately we had hired a contractor in the last 2 years for masonry tuck pointing and we have not using outside contracting anymore after to many complaints... So with regards to the project we will come to the location for the project and repair what's necessary of the mess this contractor has done and we apologize and call us when available.

Front Porch Granite Cladding

We contracted with JD Build to clad our concrete front porch with granite stone. Joseph was very responsive to our concerns regarding a mature oak that was encroaching on the porch. He came up with a solution that was aesthetically pleasing and did not adversely impact the tree. Joseph has a very good design sense and is very skilled at stone placement and associated masonry work. We are very pleased with the final work which was completed on schedule at a reasonable cost.

Basement window masonry

The guys came came in, and were as quiet as expected, which was nice because we have small kids. They did a good job, were very polite, and cleaned up when they were done their work.

Masonry Build & Stonework

Last year we started a project for an addition in the toronto area and I was recommended JD Build to contract the cinder block work and stone, brick facade. There was couple of complications during the project but was dealt with immediately, the entire project was completed in time with no additional costs from the quotation. Outstanding work on the craftsmanship of the masonry brickwork and the stone columns, we recommend JD Build for your next project, thanks Joe.
