2011 - Hiring Oscar was the best decision we made during the exterior renovation of our home. His crew was always on time and the project came in under budget and within a reasonable timeline. He worked closely with our 3rd party engineer and County Inspectors in implementing the safest way to add the twenty five foot stacked stone veneer to our home. His creativity with the stone design was a major asset. He was able to integrate multiple stone types to create an artistic feel to the entrance of our home. He was able to interpret our vision into a workable plan that exceeded our expectations. His team was very thorough during each stage of the project (from demolition to clean up). We are extremely pleased with the end result and will definitely use his services again when we add a flagstone walkway. 2014 - Our opinion of Oscar's work has drastically changed. Our last project was a nightmare. This two week project dragged out to be over 10.weeks. This was mainly due to his showing up for two days and then disappearing for four days. He was not punctual, he showed up when he wanted, took other jobs in between ours and kept us waiting for the project to be done. His crew cut corners on the job, trashed our lawn near the work site, and left food and garbage through out our back yard.It seemed like he was over budget and cut the mason crew from the job and attempted to finish on his own. He failed to mount the refrigerator, didn't provide ventilation for the gas grill, installed the pizza oven crooked and left the finishing details undone. Quite frankly, he left the outdoor kitchen in such bad shape we had to hire another mason to complete it. His incompetence cost us an additional $4000 on top of what we paid him. This does not even include the 're-soding of our backyard.
