Overall, I thought he was a solid worker and while it is hard to gauge if I got the highest quality of work, I feel like the work done was reasonable. They did work within my budget for several small projects, and while they didn't adhere to the original schedule, they did get the pieces done. The general replacement of the mortar around bricks looks ok on the front of the house, and the relaying of the walkway was done well. They built up a first new step (because one was missing or never built. It was done with a concrete and brick dye. He was convinced that will eventually 'blend in' so I am waiting to see that happen in the coming months. The back brick patio replacement bricks was a little less consistent, and people have noticed that the mortar around the bricks is right now a little sloppy - though, again, I am affirmed by the contractor this will improve over time. He did say it might take a while. I had two other small projects that he did take on - one was washing and repairing a second entryway's brickwork and that mortar has already broken away and I believe I will have to redo this in the coming week. The other was a small brick extension to the back brickway that was almost forgotten. The job was supposed to take 1-2 days, and it sprawled out to two weeks for various reasons. I also paid them in installments on a daily basis, which is fine but highly unusual. So that is something to prepare for.
