I was pretty disappointed when the rep on the phone said it's a $300 fee to get a quote. Please change your description to fit that so others won't waste their time calling. Your description said a free, written quote.

Thank you you for writing. Yes, the quote is always free unless you are looking to purchase a new home and need an inspection report produced during attorney review AND you have never before worked with our company. These reports take a good deal of time to prepare and they are used most often (i.e., over 95% of the time) to leverage a price break from the seller. But we don't charge this money an...

Rob Reese and his team did a great job. Very pleased with the process from first call, to proposal/estimate, through work, cleanup and follow-up. Would definitely use again and I recommend Rob and AAA-1!

AAA-1 came highly recommended to us when we were looking for a company to help with tuckpointing. We obtained bids from 3 vendors and AAA-1 offered a fair quote and was the most helpful and responsive team of all three vendors we talked to. Alex was very responsive to coming out to the property and helping us evaluate the scope of work. The quality of the work was great and Alex was on site regula...

Can't say enough good things about our experience with AAA-1 Masonry & Tuckpointing. We had two holding walls with brick that was deteriorating. They power washed to identify which bricks needed to be removed and swapped out those bricks with new ones. In addition they replaced the capstones on the two walls with larger capstones to provide the walls more protection from the elements. Everything w...

AAA-1 Masonry & Tuckpointing did fantastic work on my recent masonry project. We were really impressed on how fast Rob and Andy assessed my masonry problem and resolved it. They were very informative and made sure that all my needs were met. I highly recommend AAA-1 Masonry & Tuckpointing for any masonry needs you may have.

Called for an estimate, and had the estimator out within a week (Alex). I received a quote a few days after that. Price was fair - not the cheapest but not the highest either. The work done was excellent. Men arrived promptly when they said they would, were courteous, and Alex kept my husband and I apprised the whole time. Would definitely hire them again!

AAA-1 was pretty busy but was able to get out here in a reasonable amount of time for an inspection and estimate. The estimate was detailed and useful, and the whole experience pleasant and professional. They got us pointed in the right direction after years of frustration. While we didn't go with them in the end, for reasons that had little to do with them in particular, I would feel comfortable ...

I have had the pleasure of using AAA-1 Masonry several times over the last 14 years. Whether it be a major tuck-pointing project or some minor masonry repairs, this company is FANTASTIC. They are professional, personable, always show up on time and always clean up. I am cynical when it comes to dealing with contractors, having had unpleasant dealings with many in the past. One of the reasons I kee...

Their rep was very thorough and knowledgable and the bid very detailed, but their price was way more than anyone else, so we went with another company.

Dear Mr. [Member Name Removed]- Thank you for your comments. As the owner of the company, I appreciate you considering AAA-1 Masonry & Tuckpointing for your masonry restoration needs. My company provides exceptional quality for the price but it appears you selected a contractor who was able to do the project for MUCH less. Would very much like to know if you are pleased with the quality of the wor...

We worked with Dan who proved to be an excellent person to work with, with great communication skills, and an eye for detail. When it comes to price, I don't consider them the least expensive. However, I can argue that it is almost always wise to stay away from the least expensive contractors. Good crew and a great foreman; they were quick, clean and effective! Overall I consider them an excellent...
