The experience with Pete and Stonemark could not have been more pleasant. I met with four other contractors who have similar businesses. Pete was not only the most personable, but I could tell from the first time we met that he cares about his work, reputation and client’s needs. Pete was instrumental in the planning of our patio. He provided a timely estimate with detailed description of work to be completed. He also provided separate costs for the patio, walkway/front porch, seating wall/pillars and lights. Pete removed the pressure and made it clear that the costs would not change, even if the work would not all be completed at the same time. We eventually chose to move forward with the entire project. We couldn’t be happier with the results! After we selected Stonemark as our preferred contractor for this job, we met out at Lurvey Landscape Supply to decide on the materials and brainstorm ideas. Pete let us lead the way but provided excellent ideas on design and materials. He even provided a video 3D rendering to ensure we were on the same page and could visualize before the project started. Pete maintained constant contact and provided updates on estimated start date even through some inclement weather which delayed us a few days. When the big day arrived, Pete showed up on time with his crew to walk through the plans and map out exactly where the pavers were to be set. Pete, his foreman and crew let us know that if we had any questions during the process to let them know. Any suggestion we made was handled quickly during the process with no questions asked. If you are considering any type of hardscape project for your home, I would highly recommend Stonemark!

Loved working with Pete. We had no clue where to start and he walked us through it from beginning to end - even met us at the nursery to help us pick out the pavers! Highly recommend

Very Pleased

Pete Pontikis and his team completed a patio area in our backyard. This hardscape area included a seating area, fire pit and LED-lit back wall. We were very impressed with Pete and his crew. From the moment we met with him on design ideas all the way through to project completion, they were all professional and had amazing attention to detail throughout the process. When design changes were needed during the process, Pete's team incorporated appropriate feedback quickly to keep us on schedule. Would highly recommend them to others!

My concrete paver patio is about 15 years old, and I only had professional maintenance done on it once about 10 years ago. Needless to say, it was overdue. Pete came out and made his recommendations for re-leveling some pavers, pressure washing, re-sanding and sealing. The work that his crew did was excellent. We are very satisfied with the project, and look forward to working with Pete again when maintenance is due again. Pete did what he said he would do, when he said he would do it, and he did it right!

Im so excited

I'm so excited about our front & back yards so pardon me for rambling on but feel free to skip halfway down the post to read about the AMAZING StoneMark Hardscapes: We bought our home 4 years ago in foreclosure and the backyard was literally rotting and the eyesore of the neighborhood. My husband and I served as GCs for the entire interior and exterior work, and neighbors loved it, when we got to the back and front yards, we were financially depleted yet wanted our yard to be a show-stopper and had no idea where to turn. We called random companies throughout the city, some drew images of what they could do, others told us what they could do but the key attributes we wanted like, a fire pit, some sort of a water feature etc carried a hefty price at least by the standard of most of the contractors. We were so exasperated, frustrated and had lost all hope because by the time we finished rebuilding the house itself, we did not have enough money to work the yard of our dreams (and we didn't think having a fire pit should be that unattainable). One day the light bulb went off to go to Lurvey (google it if you don't know, yes they seem pricey but mind you we went in pretty well informed because we have already talked to to many contractors), they helped us come up with designs at a cost and recommended a couple of companies- I just thought "I'm sure we cannot afford a Lurvey-recommended contractor, no way in hell" We spoke with both companies; met one company that we weren't so sure about and then met with the owner of StoneMark Hardscapes, Inc (Pete). My husband and I were immediately taken aback, he just stood out. You could tell he has enough jobs and he is at the point where his goal is to make the client exceptionally happy. He was pleasant, laid back, jovial, positive and just genuinely excited to work with us. We discussed the yards, showed him our designs, he added some suggestions, provided paver and cost saving options and we knew without a doubt, this was our guy. His cost estimate was very fair and although I was still worried about a few added feature here and there after his estimate, he kept saying "don't worry about it, we will figure it out" which gave me a lot of comfort and we did figure it out. I had a great vibe about Pete and I was right (remember, we GC'd our entire home build-out talking to 2-3 contractors for each scope so we know when the right guy is around). Pete met us at Lurvey and we spent a lot of time selecting every single type of stone; from the pavers, seat wall, fire pit, paver trim, water feature, flagstone for the front etc. I mean, he took a lot of time out for us without rushing us. On the first day of work, him and his crew showed up on time and it felt like magic (not kidding) it felt so great seeing the bobcat, trucks and equipment ready to haul out our rotting yard. The energy between Pete and his guys was exceptional, you can tell they are happy and love working with him. One of his guys, Jose, is in my mind, The visual artist; great, amazing guy with a laser-sharp eye for precision and design. The guys were all great, worked hard and gave their all to us and our house. We have had several fires in our backyard, soooo many compliments from neighbors and knowing that we were not taken to the cleaners on price is SUCH a heartwarming feeling and I cannot recommend this company enough. I urge you, just call Pete, you will be pleased, doesn't matter how small or large your space is. Great service, great work, great prices and fair all around.

I recently worked with Pete on my patio pavers project and could not have been happier with my experience. He was super easy to work with and reasonably priced. The quality of the work was great and they had helpful ideas and suggestions. They went the extra mile to make sure that we got the patio that we wanted and we really appreciated it. Would highly recommend and would definitely work with him again.

We just had our patio done by Stonemark Hardscapes. They came highly recommended and we were not disappointed! Pete Pontikis came up with a beautiful design and he was reasonably priced. There were a lot of choices and he really helped us narrow it down based on his years of experience and expertise and what would look nice in our yard. In addition, he was extremely personable! His team of workers which included, Oscar, Jose, Angel, Jesus, Alvaro and Juan, were hardworking, meticulous and cleaned up our yard every day before leaving. They had great ideas and executed on them. We could not be happier with the result. It is truly a little paradise in our backyard.

Pete came highly recommended from a neighbor. We were interested in designing a patio that included a seating wall with lighting. Because there were so many decisions to make in its design and function, we needed expert advice in order to understand all of our options. Pete is extremely knowledgeable and we appreciated his honest and professional opinion. We highly recommend Pete and his crew!

Love them

We absolutely love the hardscapes StoneMark installed for us. Our new front porch, walkway, and backyard patios definitely have the "wow" factor we wanted. Pete helped us imagine, design, and execute such an amazing look for our home. We are very pleased with Pete and StoneMark Hardscapes.

We cannot speak highly enough of Pete and his team. They are a hardworking, knowledgeable and personable crew. They started and finished the project when predicted, and we couldn't be happier with the finished product. We are already getting compliments on the work. Pete made the process extremely easy. Thankful to have found them!!

Very Thankful

Pete was recommended to my wife and I. We are very thankful because we truly couldn't be happier. My wife can be very very picky and Pete was more than accommodating to make sure we were both 110% satisfied and happy with the end result. Truly a great guy and hard working crew that is very professional and educated in what they are doing. I have already had sooooo many compliments on this patio and its really satisfying knowing that it was done properly and will be there for a very long time.

Amazing Job

StoneMark did an amazing job on our front patio, walkway and steps! Their experience and professionalism helped us from the design to choosing the right pavers and lighting. The work was done ahead of schedule and our house was left clean and tidy every day and spotless once completed. We live across the street from an elementary school and the crew would always stop for a few minutes during arrival and dismissal to keep the noise down for the kids! Can't wait to do our driveway and outdoor kitchen next year. Great work Pete!

Pete and his team has a done an excellent job from the time we requested an estimate to project execution. They were very reasonable. Pete is very meticulous and explained all the items his team would perform and it is well documented in the contract. He did pull all the permits and contacted JULIE. The job was completed in a timely manner. The team lead by foreman Jose knows exactly what needs to be done. Their design and attention to detail is terrific. We have received several compliments from friends, neighbors and family. They even went out of their way to do work that was not in the contract. We were very happy with the work and the crew is amazing. Final photos are also referenced. We highly recommend Stonemark for their craftsmanship and hard work.

StoneMark did an amazing job on our backyard patio. Pete came out for an estimate and answered all of our questions, gave a fair quote, helped us select the best stone for our budget, and kept us in the loop during the permit process. The crew was exceptional; they were on time, efficient, and respectful of our property, and they cleaned up before they left. The whole install took only 1 day, and the final product looks great. We couldn't be more pleased with it.

Exceeded Expectations

Pete and his StoneMark crew did a front patio, paths, walkways and steps in our front yard. Pete helped us design it, pick out all the materials, and even pulled all the permits. Not only did it come out fantastic, but it exceeded our expectations. They're great at what they do, they are professional, neat, clean, and fast....they even wrapped up a day earlier than expected. We'll be using StoneMark again this spring when we do our back yard, and the following spring for our driveway.

Gorgeous

The wait to have StoneMark renovate our 50 yer old patio and its access walk was well worth it! These guys are the Patio Whisperers. The final product is gorgeous and fits in perfectly with the integrated gardens. Pete was able to visualize the end result better than I could. He and his crews are so experienced with his kind of work that once begun, proceeds like clockwork! Priced fairly for the amount of work! Extra plus: He made good on the promise to realign the end of the walk when we had the abutting driveway renovated.

So Happy

I am so happy that I hired Pete and his team to transform my front porch. My porch is absolutely stunning! The company is easy to deal with, professional and reasonably priced. I highly recommend this company and I still can't believe this beautiful porch is mine!!!

StoneMark did an amazing job installing our new brick paver patio this year. It was ultimately a smooth process from start to finish which we hadn't experience with any other contractor before. Pete was great with design ideas and layouts. Their prices are very competitive and will give you the best deal for the job. Highly recommend StoneMark with your outdoor projects as we will use them indefinitely for future work.

Pete and his team were awesome. They were professional, quick, and they built an amazing patio for me. We also had the job bid by 5 other companies, and Pete and team were among the lowest price. Money well spent.
