When I first made the call what I thought I needed was only some brick steps repaired. Ricky came to my house (the same day) and pointed out to me that I would be wasting money by doing repairs only due to the condition of the material that the steps were built on. With his experience he knew this, and instead of going ahead and making the repairs, he gave me a price for completely removing and replacing the stairs that was quite a bit less than I was expecting! This was an absolute no brainer of a decision at this point so I asked him to do it asap. Again to my surprise, he took my request quite seriously and fit my job in over a couple of days in the evenings after having worked on his other scheduled projects on those days. In less than a few days after having met Ricky for the first time I had a new set of great looking stairs!!! I could not have expected any better service than that!!!
After finishing the steps I went ahead and hired him to remove and replace the adjoining old concrete walk and pointing of my chimney which was badly needed. Prices for both were very fair as well. The walkway came out fabulous also, and together with the new stairs, now add the eye candy curb appeal that my property badly needed! Even though the repointing of the chimney doesn't have the wow factor that the stairs and walkway have to the eye, it sure has a tremendous amount of it to my mind knowing that the structural integrity of this extremely important part of my house has been restored! CHECK YOUR CHIMNEYS FOLKS!!!
I am very satisfied with all of the results of these projects and soon some of my neighbors will be with their projects too! So far, after having seen the results of his work at my house, a couple of them have asked Ricky to look at their masonry needs and I highly suggest that you do too!!!
