The job initially was done well and it looked beautiful. The limestone and the versalok steps have maintained their quality and durability well. However, we have had major problems after 2 winters with the stamped concrete. After the first winter, we observed several areas where it broke up and we called Tony. He was difficult to get hold of, and he finally came over and took a look at it. He said, "did you use rock salt" and I said "yes, you didn't tell me not to." He said he always recommends Ice Melt to his customers. I told him if he had, I would have purchased and used it. He power washed the broken areas and sealed them. After the second winter, during which we only used Ice Melt, almost the entire walkway was broken up It looks like someone took a jack hammer to 3/4 of the walkway; there's one section that has no damage. He came over after several calls, talked with my husband and said "this is much worse than any rock salt could have caused. Maybe when the concrete was mixed, they didn't put the right amount of air in it." He suggested adding 2 inches of concrete over the walkway, which my husband doesn't want to do, or sealing it again. He said he would provide the labor and we would have to pay for the materials. He also said he'd get back to us on cost. That was well over 2 months ago. He did not call or E-mail us with estimates. We've called his number numerous times and left messages and still haven't heard back from him. The job cost us $10,000. It's very disappointing that he is so difficult to get hold of and that we have a crappy-looking sidewalk. We'd like Tony to contact us ASAP to make an appointment to come and re-seal the walkway again.

Anthony was very responsive from initial contact through completion of project. The project was completed quickly and with very high quality. His crew is very knowledgeable and provided great suggestions to ensure the sidewalk would last many years. I highly recommend them for any concrete project.

We recently decided to replace our aging deck with a Stamp Crete patio. After the first quote we received we decided to get another. We met with Tony Micale, the owner of Distinctive Stone & Concrete, and discussed what we had in mind and needed to provide a project that would fulfill those needs. Tony made some suggestions and we incorporated them into our ideas and decided to go forward with the project. We were impressed from start to finish with this company. They were on time, professional, neat and most importantly very knowledgeable. The project was completed on schedule. The owner was here several times during the day to check on the progress. We were impressed how his team worked together, only pros could work that way. We certainly recommend anyone needing any concrete work done to give this company a call for a quote, we are very happy we did. John and Donna North Syracuse

I called to get an estimate and the first time he said he was with his daughter at a doctors appointment and would call us back. Didn't hear anything for a couple days and called back. Told him wanted him to come out and give an estimate on replacing out front porch with stamped concrete. He said he was booked up for the year, and probably not the guy for the job . We couldn't get him to even come out and take a look so maybe we could put this off until the spring. It was obvious the job wasn't worth his time.

Anthony and his crew did an amazing job. We hired him to remove and replace a garage floor on a home we recently purchased. Midway through the project other pre existing issues with our home became apparent. Anthony was able to address and fix those issues and complete the garage. His team was professional, honest, courteous, and most importantly did great work. Anthony was on site and addressed all of our questions and concerns. We got several quotes and his price was very fair. We were very happy with the job his crew did and have already recommended his company to other family and friends.

Anthony and his crew transformed my house with their skillful application of fieldstone and stamped concrete. They were punctual, professional, and knowledgeable about their craft. Initially the price seemed high, but after watching the detail and skill that goes into the application, I feel I got a deal. Cleanup was completed with the same attention to detail they employed throughout the job. Very, very happy with this company.

My experience with Anthony was awesome. He got things done on time despite some weather delays. He was always responsive and didn't mind minor changes as the job progresses. The end result was absolutely beautiful walkways and patio. He also did an excellent job of cleaning up after the work was complete and fixing the ruts in the lawn from the equipment. I would highly recommend him and his company for any stamped concrete job you may be considering.

They arrived in a timely manner and had some serious equipment with them. They spent the first day tearing out the old walkway. They were quite neat even yho they had little space to move in. The next day they set the forms and prepared the area for the concrete. The weather was very hot. It took a couple of days for the concrete to arrive but when it did there was a team of men moving shifting and leveling it. This walkway could survive a nuecular attack. They had to work fast because the extreme heat made the concrete set fast. The finished product came out nice. Just a couple of areas that i noticed that must have set too fast and didn't come out as well. After having a wood and brick walkway, a paver walkway. This should be here long after we pass onto the other side.

I had contacted this contractor because I had tile on my existing front porch that was causing problem in the winter and I wanted to see what my options were. Anthony came out within a couple days of initial communication. They were going to remove the existing tile and replace with fresh concrete and after talking with him I opted to have them do stamped concrete to give it some additional design, texture and color. I also decided to have them do my front walkway as well even though it was in good shape. The price was higher than other quotes I had received but I decided to do the stamped concrete instead of plain so I think this was part of the reasoning for the higher pricing.They contacted me to do the work a couple weeks later and were here over three days doing the work. The walkway & porch came out great. It's a nice color that goes well with my house and looks terrific. I also love the combined pattern I chose. Anthony is the only person I encountered from the company but I found him to be friendly and professional. I am very pleased with the end results and would definitely hire this company again or recommend to others for any other concrete needs.

He completed the work in the time promised and left the work area clean and neat. We were pleased with the results of his work which met expectations and have no complaint with him or his company. We would not hesitate to use his services again.

Anthony Micale met with us at our home about different options for redesigning our old walkways and patio. He and his entire crew were always punctual to work each day. They also answered any questions that we had knowledgeably as well as cheerfully. They started and finished the project in the 5-day time frame given. When they were done, they cleaned up the area much to our liking and explained thoroughly how to care for the stamping work. We highly recommend this contractor for overall experience and quality of work done. John & Mary F. AMENDMENT: Aforesaid concrete job had suffered some significant damage this past winter which was very harsh. He requested we send him pictures and he came out to see the damaged walkway. He indicated that they would patch one section and replace the other. We have since made two attempts to contact owner after his visit to schedule work but to no avail.

When they were finished, it looked really good. I am completely satisfied with their work. They were on-time, polite, they cleaned up all materials before they left. I would recommend them to friends and neighbors.
Description of Work
Cleaned the garage floor and washed it twice with an mixture of acid and cleaner. Then rolled on an epoxy base. The next day they applied a coating of poly-seal. It was done in a light gray concrete color to which they added black and white flakes to enhance the appearance. They also added a non-skid material to the poly-seal.

There was only two delays, one day due to weather and the other due to staff call ins. This was not a problem because the whole project only took a few days. The work area was clean when the project was finished. Overall, I was very happy with the project and everyone who has seen the results have been very impressed. I asked Anthony for several business cards. I have no more left.
Description of Work
I had a patio with stone stairs leading to the patio from the morning room slider. I was also able to have a front walkway installed with the same pattern as the patio. I didn't plan on the sidewalk but because the cost was so reasonable I was able to have the sidewalk too.

I got 2 estimates from 2 different companies. We talked about the size of the patio. There was nothing special about it. They were going to build one. It was going to be from concrete. They were the lowest estimate, but I have decided to not put in the patio. I liked the person that came, but I didn't think I would use it as much as I thought I would. They had nice ideas. The salesperson was great.

When he came to give the estimate he sat with us and thoroughly explained the process. He even gave us some suggestions that had worked in the past for others he had done work for. The day of installation the drew arrived on time and were most professional during the entire time they were here. The work was done meticulously. They began by surveying the area to get the best angle to place the forms. When they dug out the area where they put the forms they kept the surrounding areas clean. The concrete was poured and stamped with no concrete scattered around. When they had finished we were told that it was complete except for sealing which could not be done until the next day or so as the concrete had to set. However he indicated that we could walk on it the next day. The owner returned and sealed it. The finished walkway is even better than I had pictured. We are very pleased with the way the job was done and the quality with which it was done.

These gentlemen came in, took out the old black top driveway and hauled it all away. They installed my new concrete driveway and made it a little wider as agreed. They also added borders around it which gives it a nicer look. When they were done with the driveway they also did the resealing of the stamped concrete that I already had installed a few years before. The stamped pads were very faded and no longer looked like it should. The guy's to my surprise, brought it back to it's original look. So much so that a delivery man came to my home the next day and wouldn't walk on the sidewalk because he thought it was wet. He and I spoke and he said he'd "never seen a nicer sidewalk or driveway job". When they finished the job's they cleaned up around the whole property to include power washing the street to clean off all the mess from the concrete truck. My neighbors all commented about the nice work they had done, and were equally impressed with the clean up on top of the work. I would also like to add that the owner was on the job with his people working right along with them. You could tell it was because they all worked very well together not because he has to watch over them. I am not trusting of trade people but I watched these guy's and they showed the were hard workers that have a lot of pride in what they do. They are truly professionals and they were very respectful. I've had nothing but complements on there work since the job has been completed.
