Hiring Distinctive Stoneworks was one of the best decisions and investments that we made for our home. Upon meeting Dennis for the first time, his excellent communication skills, experience, knowledge and focus on customer service; instantly made us confident that we had chosen the right company for the job. Experiencing the entire process and seeing the end results of the work performed first hand, only confirmed our decision.
Figuring out how to resolve our “sinking to our knees in mud” issue was overwhelming and surely not for the faint of heart. Before we met with Dennis, we thought we would never find the right company that could stabilize our land and create an outdoor space we could use and enjoy. Dennis came to our rescue by constructing a large underground drainage system that diverted runoff water away from our foundation. He then corrected our soil composition and stabilized our land through proper fill and grading. His experience, knowledge, perseverance along with his very competent crew were key to the outcome. After the project was completed, we received several heavy rain storms. I am happy to report that our land and the underground drainage handled the unusual large amounts of rainfall with no issues. Our land is stable now, thanks to Dennis and the excellent work performed. His company’s performance repeatedly lived up to their motto “Do it once, Do it right!” And they consistently deliver!
Once our land was stable they moved on to the stone masonry work. They designed and installed 3 decorative stone retaining walls, 3 stone walk ways with granite steps, a large circular patio with a stone fire pit with surrounding stone benches and a meditation grotto. Each one of the walls, sidewalks and our planting beds have low voltage lighting installed. Our yard is so serene and beautiful during the day and quite enchanting at night. The attention to every detail was outstanding.
This company also Installed our irrigation system, 2 types of fencing around the perimeter of our home, prepped a stone pad and decking for our shed. The final stages of our project consisted of installing freshly cut sod and beautiful landscaped beds. Dennis took the time to take us to the nursery to choose plants that would not only look beautiful but were easy to maintain and would successfully thrive in our yard. He even installed a fabricated stone that covers up the eye sore “candy cane” ugly vent from our front yard septic system. Dennis and his team’s integrity, work ethic and professionalism exceeds the industry standards.
We will be forever thankful and grateful to Dennis and the Distinctive Stonework’s team for transforming our property. They made the entire process such a positive experience for our whole family. We highly recommend Distinctive Stoneworks to anyone seeking performance and creative excellence.
Denis and his crew removed and installed a great looking paving stone walk. They were efficient, professional and courteous. They handled any issue with complete professionalism. I would recommend Dennis and his company to anyone. He is coming back in this fall to do another project for me.
Denis and his crew installed a gas fireplace and the surrounding wall with stone. Crew was great to watch and fast. Did a clean up everyday. Had a time constraint and Denis finished on time. You can't go wrong getting this company to do your stonework.
Job involved demolition and removal of old brick/concrete front steps and building new steps with concrete wall and pavers and granite steps and landing. Dennis and his crew did a fantastic job. Very professional. Paid a lot of attention to detail. Started and finished on schedule. They even removed and wrapped a Japanese maple near the old steps I was giving to a neighbor. Job was finished one day ago and have already gotten many compliments in person and via text from neighbors. Highly recommend Distinctive Stoneworks.
An amazing transformation took place at our home! 3 Estimates the previous year led us to Distinctive Stoneworks and we could not be happier we decided on this company. Dennis developed a design that accomplished our objective and greatly added to the appeal of our home AND worked with us to keep the cost within our budget. The job involved removing a large retaining wall (~65 ft.), regrading the area, installing a gorgeous set of granite stairs, building a new retaining wall, new garden area, and long stone walkway. The level was used constantly to insure proper water flow....loved that bit! The crew was amazing: hard workers, polite, and cleaned up after themselves. Professional Plus. We have received many compliments on the work, and couldn't be happier with the end result.
