Our project involved a major backyard renovation requiring a complete tear out of our existing yard, planning, design and construction of the new yard. This includes a spa, pool, raised concrete deck with a stone veneer face and a grand brick entry, a decorative brick and stone ﬁreplace mantle, beautiful brick and stone outdoor shower with two shelves for soap and shampoo, a large masonry bench with acid stained concrete top located across the shower, a two level yard with beautiful accent brick and 3-Rivers stone edges, a fire pit and another masonry bench for a sitting around the ﬁre pit, all new landscaping, plants, watering system, and a drainage system throughout the backyard, lighting, wood and iron fence & rails. As you can see, this was a massive renovation for us.
We contracted with Geoff in April 2010 to help design, coordinate, and build this major backyard renovation. This job entailed creating a backyard Oasis which we now fully enjoy. We were given Geoff’s name as a recommendation from our neighbor who was also very happy with his work ethic. In addition to all stone work, Geoff helped manage and coordinate each phase of our project. He was open and accepted our input at various stages, he exhibited pride in his word, he follows through continuously, even after the completion of the project he has been back to complete minute details.
During this project, l also encountered contractors who low-bid a job in order to obtain it, later to require a “Change Order.’ That was not the case with GPT. He did not exceed the terms of the contract, nor impose change orders without mutual agreement with us in advance. I do not give my recommendation lightly. Geoff and his team have integrity and are very trustworthy.
We started the project at the end of April 2010 and ﬁnished by the ﬁrst week of August 2010, a very short time considering the magnitude of our renovation. Geoff is credited with maintaining a timely schedule of all facets involved. We are very pleased with the result as well as the entire experience of working with Geoff and his crew. We hope that this letter assists your evaluation when considering Geoff as your contractor for masonry or coordinator.
