Our family recently purchased a property in Fairfax, Vt which had the perfect place with a view for a nice patio and firepit. This project was especially challenging given the slope on the location and size of the retaining wall needed. After researching multiple companies online, I reached out to JL Masonry & Hardscaping so they could provide us with a quote. The owner of the company (Jay) quickly reached out to me and agreed to meet on site to review my property and plan. Shortly after meeting, Jay provided a detailed quote itemizing every step they would take to bring my project & vision to completion. Jay’s quote was by far the most detailed and the quality of their materials list is far superior to any other companies I researched.

After choosing JL Masonry, Jay even made several special trips over to my house to show me several different options for stone. He and his team catered to every request my wife and I had along the way, provided daily updates, and their entire team was courteous, professional, and VERY skilled at what they do. Not only did they get my project started when they said they would, but they even somehow managed to navigate all of the challenges mother nature threw at them along the way to finish in time for us to enjoy our stunning new patio and firepit for fall foliage season! I should note that I am a very picky person when it comes to projects like this and Jay and his team absolutely exceeded my expectations in every way possible! I cannot say enough good things about their workmanship and I HIGHLY recommend using them for any type of hardscape project you have. Do not be fooled by other “low bidders” in the industry. If you want the project done right, JL Masonry & Hardscaping is the only option!

Jay and his team did an excellent job on our new walkway and stairs. Jay is very responsive, organized, and thorough. His team is efficient, professional, and hard-working. We were impressed from start to finish. We would highly recommend Jay and his team!

Kyra & Michael Maddix

Jay put the same amount of attention into our small job as he does to larger ones. Estimate was accurate, work was completed timely and the outcome was fabulous. The walk and steps look beautiful. They were careful when working , gave us time to think about our decisions and offered options when appropriate. I highly recommend this company to anyone whether it is a business or a family.

Lynn Raymond

Jay and Adam did an amazing job for us stone veneering our addition. The end result far exceeded our expectations and looks absolutely fabulous. The entire project was handled very professionally and they put a lot of effort into ensuring our satisfaction. Jay responded to all of our questions promptly in the planning stages and throughout the project. The project started on time and was completed very quickly, as planned. As any potential issues arose, we were consulted immediately so we could agree upon the best solution. It was very refreshing to work with a contractor who was true to his word and committed to quality, timeliness, and customer satisfaction. We would absolutely recommend JL Masonry and Hardscaping and plan to use them again.

Tina and Jim Hallock

We want to thank both Jay and his crew for the wonderful job they did for us. He replaced several retaining walls and my front stairs. Jay and his crew fixed all my issues and the new stairs exceeded our expectations. It is such a nice feeling to come home and see how nice it looks. Finally, we can smile when we see our home! We would highly recommend them to anyone that may ask us where we got our work done, because they will get a professional job in a timely manner and the job will be done right! Great job to Jay and his crew!

Sharon and Rich W

Jay and his crew did a great job. They were very professional and always left the work area picked up and neat. I cannot believe how quickly the work progressed. The finished steps and patio exceeded my expectations. They are is absolutely beautiful. We are constantly getting compliments on it and are asked who did such wonderful masonry. I proudly tell them JL Masonry and Hardscaping.

Sandy Gagne

Jay and his team did a brilliant job with the stone work for Redstone Villa. The red mortar really pops and the walls looks like they did when it was constructed in 1865 using Swanton Marble. I can’t thank Jay and his team of professionals enough for the work they did, the professionalism they showed to my staff & residents, and the timeliness of their effort! I encourage all who are interested to come by and check out their craftsmanship at 7 Forest Hill Drive in St. Albans, Vermont and ask for me, John Danforth, the Administrator of Redstone Villa, and I will be happy to talk to you more about the exceptional work they did here. I couldn’t be happier with their product and I’m happy to brag to anyone about this excellent local company who gets the job done with professionalism and class! I highly recommend JL Masonry &Hardscaping for any stone or construction project! Thank you Jay and Team!

John D. (Administrator Redstone Villa)

Just wanted to thank you and let you know how very pleased we are with the patio! It is just beautiful and looks exactly like the drawing we gave you. I still can’t believe how quickly you and your crew worked. Everything was left just the way you promised. It was a wonderful experience with fantastic customer service. I will be speaking to others about you for a long time! When you pay to have work done and you are as pleased as we are it deserves recognition and praise. I can only hope that others looking for any type of masonry work will visit your site, and take the time to meet you. At last … A company that is so professional and so creative. Thank you again, and you WILL be the one we call for all future projects!

Jay and crew did a great job. Very professional. We love how the retaining walls and new walkway came out. We are very happy customers and would highly recommend JL Masonry.

Gary Boldman

Jay, along with Patrick and Jordan were the crew for my stone bridge project. The entire crew was very professional and my satisfaction with their work was clearly a priority. I had to leave town for a few days while the work was being done and they took the time to send me photos to update me on the progress. The bridge is exactly what I was had envisioned and their work speaks for itself…it’s beautiful!

Heidi Manahan

Just had an absolutely huge patio (pavers) put in for my backyard. This included a large sitting wall and stone steps from the driveway and into the house. Jay and his crew were the most professional people I have had the pleasure of dealing with, and they did an absolutely amazing job. They were exactly on time each day and had the job done in an unbelievably short timeframe. I STRONGLY recommend this company to anyone that wants top quality results from an obviously seasoned group of professionals. Am still stunned by how great this came out. Thanks Jay!

J L Masonry did an outstanding job repointing two sides of our historic St. Albans Town Hall building. His estimates for materials, labor and schedule were accurate. We were very happy with his work and plan to have him do more for us in the future.
