We contracted with Genesis Stoneworks to remove all of our existing concrete, grass and most of our flowerbeds and replace with pavers and artificial turf. We obtained 3 quotes including Genesis' and Genesis was definitely the best price and value. Their sales guy, Chad, arrived to give us the quote, he was prompt, very knowledgeable, respectful and friendly. He took his time to understand our vision and guided us appropriately to pick the best solution.
The team arrived at the agreed upon date and time. Fernando, their Construction Manager, was on-site every morning to assure the project was running smoothly. Fernando was also very knowledgeable, professional and easy to approach. He gave us excellent advice and always assured the team was doing the right thing. Fernando is a perfectionist and we appreciated his advice and attention to detail.
The team was primarily 4 guys. They did everything from demolition to installing pavers, turf, drains and sprinkler pipe. Jose was designated as our "go-to" guy on site. He was amazing. Always willing to answer questions and checked in with us to assure things were being installed as agreed upon. Checking with us on the placement of drains, that sprinklers for drip systems were placed appropriately as well as design nuances were to our liking. He was friendly, helpful, courteous and kind. Great guy!
Gerardo was one of the workers - a really hard worker. Great attitude and always smiling. In fact, all the team members worked hard to assure we were happy and the job was to our liking.
We were amazed at how fast the demolition went. The team arrived promptly around 7:30 each morning, ready to work and work they did. The project was completed on time with no delays. They were organized, always had the needed materials/equipment available and cleaned up and organized their tools and materials each evening.
The team also was most willing to help us move patio furniture, flower pots, etc. at the beginning and end of the project. At the end, Jose and Gerardo help us get everything back in place. The was a very nice bonus.
We gave the fellows access to our bathroom inside our home. They were very respectful and always left it clean, the way they found it.
Chad stayed in touch and came by to check on progress. He is a genuinely nice guy who is SO knowledgeable. He gave us excellent advise and guided us in the design and we're very grateful he did as the end product exceeded our expectations. By the way, Chad said at the beginning, when we signed the contract, that the job would take 2 1/2 weeks and it took EXACTLY 2 1/2 weeks. This almost never happens in construction. We cant say enough about their performance and quality.
We HIGHLY recommend Genesis Stoneworks!!!
