Our home was built in 1998, and the front walkway and brick stairs were falling apart. We contacted Jon at General Pavingstones and he came out within the week. He provided us with many options and listened to our concerns. He also worked within our budget and his estimates accurately reflected the final cost. He and his team paid incredible attention to detail and we are very happy with the results. Our home now has the best curb appeal in the neighborhood. I plan on using General Pavingstones again in the future to improve my backyard.
Jon Valenta, the owner of the business, and his incredibly talented, hard working and professional staff built a patio on our property recently. Everything Jon told us they would do was accomplished and they went above and beyond what our expectations were. They met all deadlines and the budget was maintained - there were no surprises as to extra cost at the completion of the project. We highly recommend General Pavingstones. We can’t thank them all enough -they transformed our property.
The most detailed, well-planned and properly installed work I saw out of many contractors that I sold pavers to.
Jon is very professional. He did a great job talking through the decision-making and provided the guidance that I needed for the project. He and his workers are efficient and meticulous. The work site was super tidy each day and at the end of the project. The quality of the work is excellent. The price was quite fair for the job. I would highly recommend him!
From start to finish, Jon and his team were absolute professionals! I don’t think you could find a nicer guy who is upfront and honest about the work, project cost and timing, and also stands behind his work. It began with Jon providing the rendering of what the patio would look like as well as a ton of design ideas....and patience while we re-thought our choices on color, layout, etc. we also had to come up an option to ensure the proper drainage due to the grade and Jon put several options out there for us to consider. We’ve had ALOT of hard rain this summer and absolutely no issues! I never had a single concern about quality and if there was an issue I knew that Jon would go the extra mile if necessary to address it. In the end, we have a great new patio that really enhances our outdoor space and will enjoy it for many years to come. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend General Pavingstones to anyone looking to have work done.
Outstanding job by General Pavingstones. From the planning phase, with our many changes, to the completion of our patio and front walk, Jon and his crew were professional and meticulous about their work. The project came out better than we expected. Thank you!!
I am very happy with the work to date and the timely manner in which it was done. Jon and his crew were very professional.
Knowing the driveway to have had blacktop for at least 60 years, I wanted a very professional job — not someone’s brother who could put down pavers. General Pavingstones did a fantastic job. It has been a year and passing cars still slow down to look at it. Because all the old blacktop was removed, and a solid base put down before the pavers, it will last into the next millennium and beyond. I would heartedly recommend General Pavingstones.
General Pavingstones is a quality company! The owner, Jon Valenta, is an honest, skilled professional. His integrity, knowledge, experience, and ability to meet deadlines and budgets is outstanding! From pavers to outdoor lighting each project has enhanced our landscape 100%! We used this company for three projects during the last ten years. Each time, when completed we say, Why did we wait so long to do this?Each end product exceeded our expectations! We continue to get compliments on each project long after completion. Quality work, completed on time with integrity. What more could you ask for?
Great experience! Easy to work with, friendly, and excellent craftsmanship. We had 2 retaining walls put up, pavers laid down, a custom bar top installed, and modifications to our deck completed. All work was done in a timely manner. I highly recommend General Pavingstones and I plan to hire Jon for our next outdoor project.
Excellent craftsmanship, reliability, and professionalism. One of the most positive experiences we have had in this area. We have had many contractors carrying out various home improvement projects over the years, and General Pavingstones has proven to be superior to many others. Jon Valenta, owner and operator of the company, stands behind his work, and word, completely. We would not hesitate to have further work completed by General Pavingstones should the need arise!
Thanks to Jon and his crew for making our vision a reality. Organized, courteous, great workmanship are just some of the ways we can describe our experience. Highly recommended for anyone looking to improve their outdoor experience.
Thank you for coming back and addressing my concerns with the work in my front yard. It looks much better now and reflects our conversation. I truly appreciate you honoring the agreement and fixing the situation.
Wow! The new lighting looks fantastic!! We love it!! Thank you so very much!
Glad to hear the project went well. Nice work on it. And thank you for the pictures; they are greatly appreciated because we don’t usually get to see the walls constructed.
You did a great job on the patio. I love it. Thanks for delivering exactly what was promised!!!
Matt and I want to thank-you again for the fantastic job you did on both our front porch steps, and the new railings. We actually think the porch looks better and more finished with them, and have gotten compliments already from the neighbors. Please also thank your neighbor for us for the assistance he provided, and let him know how pleased we are.
General Pavingstones, LLC... I am very pleased with the beautiful work done by Jon Valenta & his very talented crew of workers. I cannot say enough about the workmanship involved here & the result is outstanding.
We contracted with General Pavingstones, LLC 3 years ago to install pavers in our walkway to replace a poorly installed concrete walkway and correct a problem that we had with the walkway settling where it joins the front porch. The house is new construction and was only 3 years old at that time and due to some settling, created the problem.Jon and his crew rectified the problem by reinforcing the area that we had a problem with it sinking and did an excellent job installing the new paver walkway. As a matter of fact, we had him do additional work for us while he was here. He installed pavers in a rear patio area as well as replace all the mulch along our 250 foot driveway, center island and front garden area with 3/4red stone. Everything looks great and the work was done with minimal mess and disruption. He also installed an underground drainage system for our front downspouts which alleviated a drainage problem that we had.Jon is very reliable and dependable and a pleasure to work with. He is very detail oriented and conscientious about the quality of his work - rare qualities in a contractor today.We would highly recommend Jon for any hardscape / landscape work that needs to be done.
Jon and his team at General Pavingstones just did a phenomenal job at our home. They repaired our front stoop, removed the bricks that were falling apart, re-faced it and installed blue stone. It looks great. Along with that they removed our old paver walkway, widened it, installed drainage piping from our downspouts underneath it, reconfigured and repaired our lighting and graded and re-seeded the lawn. It too looks great. I can’t recommend them enough. Jon came to our home with the bed of his truck lined with samples. We narrowed it down to a few and he provided us with advice and recommendations. He gave us the timeline on when we could expect the project to start. We received several updates prior to the start. He and his team started on time and finished quickly. There were no surprises in the final bill and we’re thrilled with the results. The day they were finished Jon emailed us this warranty and a sketch that laid out the work that was done. Professional from start to finish and great quality work. If you are considering a project like this for your home your making a mistake if you don’t hire General Pavingstones to do the work.
We recently moved into a house without a PATIO and so surveyed the talent available. GPs proposal included a BREAKDOWN of the DELIVERABLES along with an ANIMATION of what the final result would look like. The GP team arrived on time as promised to initiate the layout of the work and arrived each following morning at 7:00AM to continue working. Each of the teams talents complimented the others and they performed like a symphony. GP uses all the latest technology - including LASER LEVELING to deliver a QUALITY product.10-days later, the patio was COMPLETE including fresh GRASS SEEDING.My compliments to Jon and his team.
The patio and now the fire pit area look so nice. We are so pleased with you and your team putting this all together. We are amazed at how awesome the patio turned out. The patio is so spacious. There is so much room to walk on compared to the dinky deck and limited patio that we had previously. This will really be a great place to hold gatherings.
Many thanks to Jon and the crew for creating our new outdoor living space. Hope to enjoy many hours of relaxation here filled with friends
General Pavingstones did an amazing job installing our back yard patio! They work one project at a time so we were not inconvenienced waiting to have it finished! They actually found defects in the bricks that I, as the home owner, didn’t pick up on, that caused them to have to redo the job at no additional cost to me! They also did a great job landscaping after they finished! I would recommend them to build or repair your paving stone project! Much thanks to Jon and his team for their professionalism in completing the project in a timely manner and adding a backyard space that we will enjoy for years to come!
Fantastic! Thanks so much for sharing these and the job looks great! Beautifully envisioned and executed.”“Wow. Now that I’ve had the chance to look through all the photos, I thought I’d say that’s one of the tightest, best run jobsites and finished project I’ve seen. Just a really, really nice job, Jon.
General Pavingstones installed a new front & back walkway, along with some pathway lighting & we are extremely satisfied. From the beginning we were impressed w/Jon’s honesty, integrity & knowledge. From returning our initial call to following up w/appointments, communicating info on materials, design & cost, we were amazed with the professionalism of Jon and his staff. Based on past experiences w/other contractors, our expectations were low, but General Pavingstones was a pleasant surprise. A positive experience from beginning to end, the workmanship was superior. Quality work with a lifetime guarantee - we could not have asked for more. We highly recommend!
I cannot say enough about the work that this company does! It’s quality, top notch work! Jon and his employees have the best work ethic and are highly trained and talented! The project is coming along and I can’t say enough about the work done to date! … I love my home even more! What great quality work and craftsmanship! Professionals that treated my home like it was theirs! They put their heart into it! Love this job!
Thank you so much for my beautiful new walkway! We love it!!! … You did an awesome job. I feel like I have a new backyard!
General Pavingstones installed a patio, walkways and landscape lighting at our old house and new stairs at our new home. Jon and his employees are the best! They take such pride in their work. I highly recommend them.
Jon and his Team did a great job with installing a new paver walkway and front stairs at our house. In the beginning, Jon sat down with us to understand our needs and wants, and provided brochures and samples so that we could see exactly what we were going to purchase. Once the designed was finalized, Jon was in constant communication with us on when he thought he would start. They were able to complete the job on time, and the job site was cleaned up afterwards. The new walkway and stairs look incredible, and I am very happy with the professional manner in which Jon and his Team worked. I highly recommend General Pavingstones.
Provided excellent overall service. Contributed greatly on the overall design phase to help create a design which met all of our needs and then continued on to build it to all of the exacting requirements. Very pleased with their performance. Would highly recommend them.
General Pavingstones constructed a new concrete driveway apron (which included part of the sidewalk) at my house. Even after meeting Jon, who was very polite and professional, I still didn’t expect too much considering past experience with other contractors. I figured... this is a small job... they will keep pushing our job back in the schedule, they will rush and it won’t be done too well at all. Happily, I was 100% wrong. They began on time as scheduled, and they were meticulous - like it was their home, they communicated well and it came out perfect: well constructed, well finished... all around amazing job. I am so grateful. Thank you General Pavingstones!!
We just wanted to give you and update on the Brick Walkway you installed last Spring... Walkway is holding up great, and the grass is now all grown in. We are still very pleased with the results and we have gotten many compliments from our neighbors and friends. Thanks again for the Great Job!
Many thanks for the great job on our steps. We think they look great.
I love it! You did a MAGNIFICENT job! If you would like to bring prospective clients here to show them, just text ahead of time.
