I can't recommend Ron George and his assistant highly enough. He returned my initial call very promptly and, when he came to give me a quote, was very thorough in assessing the needs of the job. He realized the importance of matching the rest of the house and chimney, so was able to use as many of the existing bricks as possible and brought additional matching brick. They even matched the existing 80-year-old mortar perfectly! His work is truly impressive.
The project turned out to be considerably more extensive than we originally thought, but the additional cost was surprisingly modest. Both Ron and his assistant were a pleasure to work with.

Ron and his helper were very efficient and careful with the work. They made the walkway very decorative (without direction from us) and matched the existing brick very well. Ron was honest when he told us how we could work with existing brickwork instead of replacing it. I appreciated his honesty. He is a local contractor who loves the neighborhood (Lakewood) and understands the value of maintaining the style of the houses. He was one of the best contractors I have ever worked with. The price of the job was high but you get what you pay for... the quality of his work was worth the money. I suspect that other contractors would have charged a similar amount.

Ron George was prompt making an estimate and completed the job within 2 weeks. He was always pleasant and explained everything in detail.

It went very well. He did a great job. He came out and gave us an estimate. Because of our schedules, what he did is he dropped some bricks for us to pick. He picked out bricks actually that he thought would match the house. We saw the bricks and we called him and said it was okay. He came while we were at work. He fixed the walls. We thought he was very professional and very knowledgeable. He was very honest too. Originally, we had talked about jetting up the outside wall or either knocking it down and rebuilding it or doing something to it like major construction. He told us that we probably should not do that because it'll just pick up the ground move. It's just going to happen again. The patch work needed to be re-patched. I would use him again in the future. We're actually thinking about calling him again.

We were interested in completing the job within 1 week (prior to new roof). Ron was able to come out that week and do the job. He and his associate spent about 1.5 days on the job. First chimney actually needed to have the first 3 courses rebuilt. Ron honored his original price and did the entire job with high quality. Highly recommended.

My experience with Mr. George was very positive. He arrived on-time for the estimate, fixed the damper while he was there (no charge), and prepared an estimate while he was there. He worked with me on price. He adjusted his schedule to meet my needs (as I was selling the property and under a deadline), and, because our buyer waived the work in the end, we did not have the work performed. I offered to pay Mr. George for the time he spent working on our estimate and trouble we caused for him to adjust his schedule, etc., but Mr. George declined any compensation. He is an extremely pleasant and amenable man. I hope we can work together in the future. Thank you, Mr. George.
