I was thinking of redoing our front walkway, stoop, driveway and rear patio about a year ago. I have been in my home for over 30 years and the front and back brickwork was done about 28 years ago. The original was brick on dry-pack (i think that’s what its called) and much of the surface had become uneven. A friend of mine had his front walkway done around that time and I liked the result so I asked him who? He said Tom from LIM&C. So when I was ready to do my work I called a couple of companies including Tom. His price was in the ballpark. What I liked most was his direct approach about what could be done, about giving me some good idea’s and discussed some possible problems that could come up. Among several suggestions, he spoke about the benefits of laying the new pavers on a bed of concrete instead of the dry-pack which I originally wanted. I’m glad I went with his suggestion. Anyway, we agreed on a start date in May 2014. He and his large crew showed up as promised. This was a fairly large job. I could not believe how fast they tore everything out and by day 2 the concrete bed was going in and on day 3 the pavers were being laid. As the job was going along, Tom made some suggestions which all made sense and I accepted. Then, I changed my mind about a few things including wanting to widen the walkway, putting a larger apron at the end of the driveway and doing an additional Belgium block border in front of my fountain landscaping . In all this “changes on the fly” there was no problem. He priced everything out right their as I was suggesting the changes so there was no doubt about the costs of each modification. I want to also point out that his foreman, Will, was a pleasure to work with and a real professional. Tom was there everyday to direct each days work and would return in the afternoon or evening to make sure all was going as planned. Tom and his men were a pleasure to deal with. I had a lot of curved edges in both the front and back and the workmanship, especially all the stone cutting, was impeccable. I’m already thinking of doing some additional brick/paver wall/border work in the backyard in the spring of 2015. No doubt Tom will be called back for an encore. Overall, a job well done and I am a very satisfied customer.
Tommy, I can’t thank you enough. Your guys were professional, you were professional, and you definitely know how to take care of your customers. I will definitely recommend you to all of friends. Thanks again.
Thank you so much Long Island Mason and Concrete!!! I love my new driveway and your workers were so professional and hard working. All around a real pleasure to have had your company fix our drive!
I personally feel that the driveway you put in increased our home resale value by more than it cost! I base that on the fact that if any potential buyer sees a driveway that needs work most will start to feel negative even before they get to the front door, and concrete by my estimate is a long term bargain, while also being recognized as a luxurious alternative to blacktop. Our home went from having the least curb appeal on the block to having the most!
Top quality at a reasonable price. Tommy and his courteous crew installed blue stone coping around our new in ground pool on time with no problems. Classy work. Would definitely employ again.
Tom is the ultimate professional. He stopped by our house on 12-04-15 to give us an estimate to repair the concrete where a railing company improperly installed a pipe railing & broke that part of the front patio. Tom was extremely helpful & we really appreciate his help.
I’ve known Tommy for over 15 years and have used him for a number of projects over that time. It was an easy decision to contract with him again when it came time to expand my commercial building. Tom was involved with every aspect from meeting with the architects to coordinating with the landscapers and sprinkler contractor. Everything was done as described and on budget. Tom and his crew are true professionals and a pleasure to work with.
We love our new driveway! Tommy and his team do excellent work. They are very easy to deal with, always call back promptly, and complete the job on time. We would and will recommend them to everyone.
We have been working with Tom from LI Mason for the last 6 years or so. He has done a number of projects for our company including sidewalks, curbs, patios, and our company’s logo in our 5,000 sq. ft. patio. Their work has exceeded our expectations. The workers are the finest that we have ever had the pleasure to work with. They completed the work according to schedule and they also worked around our schedule and needs due to the complexity of the school hours. The logo is amazing and I strongly recommend anyone who is interested to call Tom and stop here to see the work that he has done for us. Tom has been very helpful with all projects, is very ethical, and doesn’t cut any corners. He makes sure the job is done right and he is always on site.
Our experience with LIM&C can be summarized in one word: Excellent For our job (driveway, sidewalk and patio area) we wanted a professional and experienced contractor who would listen to us, and answer all our questions. We got estimates from 5 companies, and chose LIM&C. We could not be happier with our choice. From the beginning it was a pleasure to deal with Tommy. And his crew was equally professional and respectful. Tommy even accommodated some extras, like installing posts for my hammock, and removal of bushes that were not interfering with the cement job (but I wanted out!) The job was done as described, on budget and finished on time. By the time my job was done I was happy to see Tommy’s crew diligently working at TWO of my neighbor’s houses! We normally do not write testimonials. But LIM&C went above and beyond our expectations and deserves it. We highly recommend Long Island Mason and Concrete
