Patrick de Keyserling and Stonelove Masonry have my enthusiastic and unqualified endorsement and recommendation. The work is always superb and their pricing is quite appropriate and reasonable. Deadlines are met and the customer is always right!
We’ve owned our home for almost 15 years and over that time Pat De Keyserling has repaired or renovated some aspect of every room... including building us a patio. He is responsive and reliable. Early on, I had other contractors work on my house – the job was fine, but they wrecked three other parts of the house in the process. Pat recognizes that you want your entire home to look great. He is careful, minimizing the disruption to our home and to our home life. He offers me options in a variety of price ranges and never pressures me toward the high end. He keeps me informed on what to expect from a job and on progress. His prices are consistently reasonable and consistent with the original estimate. Thanks for everything, Pat!
As owner and operator of 15 rental units, I have used Stonelove Masonry for a number of projects including carpentry and masonry work. Pat de Keyserling is prompt and professional. He does exactly what he says he will do for the price quoted and he does fine work. I can wholeheartedly recommend him.
Patrick is an artist who happens to be a mason. Twenty five years ago he installed walls and walkways which distinctively and seamlessly integrated the house’s exterior with the landscape. The details, which can only be called art, still elicit delight. This past summer, Patrick laid paths which changed a mere backyard into a garden. Patrick’s stonework is our gift to the house’s future owners.
The river rock looks so natural and fits so well with my home. I hear compliments all the time and it’s so impressive now to walk up to my front door. I think the rock walls and walkway are perfect for the look I was going for and it exceeded my expectations!!!! I know it’s built correctly because you explained the set back, gravel, drainage etc. and it looks as beautiful as the day the work was finished. I have and will continue to recommend you to anyone who asks about masonry work and retaining walls. I’m very happy with the work I had done.
What a world of difference! The old front steps were transformed as Patrick and his crew removed crumbling brick and designed a replacement that fits beautifully with the historic character of the house. The center entrance is an important focus of the property and the new steps provide that “curb appeal” that was sorely needed. The work progressed smoothly and I was impressed with the management of the job from start to finish. Thanks Patrick and all for such a professional job well done!
