Be very careful and do thorough research. I wanted a stacked stone and areas of the work look stacked while other areas you see pretty nice size gaps between stone as well as mortar between the joints and on many of the stones. I failed to do my research, didn't get references and trusted my contractor to bring in a good masonry. The difference between a good masonry and bad is how messy their work is and unfortunately I got a job that looks like an amateur did it.

I bought 1000 sq ft of pavers from this guy in 2012. I somehow got his number through one of his postings on craigslist. He advertised low prices on pavers so i thought i would go for it-- after all, it is only stone/ concrete right? NO....I looked at the pavers in his yard and they looked ok. I could not see the middle and bottom layers though-- only the top two or so. I picked about 7 skids and had them delivered, all in I saved quite a few dollars. BUT, the pavers in the middle and bottom were not new and were returned (not stacked right) for obvious reasons:***broken and cracked (least of problems)***discolored**************** EXTREME EFFORVESCENCE *****************(a white mineral deposit that a 3000lb pressure washer cannot remove.... The literature suggests this is a manufacturer defect though it occurs naturally also....) A condition brought on by factory defective pavers if you read the literature.....I bought defective, returned, crack, broken, discolored, and dirty pavers... I thought they were new....If i could do this again I would have gone elsewhere and paid extra.....
Tips & Advices
Employers must conduct all required training in a language and vocabulary that workers can understand. Training must demonstrate the hazards of operating certain machinery, like stone cutters and splitters, as well as how to use them appropriately. It's important to verify that your landscape contractor has taken the necessary steps to fully train its personnel and that the appropriate safety precautions are in place.
Check the specific regulations for your area, and verify that your contractor has the necessary licenses. These may include a state contractor's license, pesticide license, CDL driver's license and license to sell and purchase nursery stock.
Landscape work is not cheap, so it's in your best interest to make sure that it's done to your requirements and that you get the best contractor to do the job. Homeowners should know how much they'll need to pay for the contractor's service as well as how they will be billed for this work. Ask about any design fees, if quoted prices are fixed or estimates, and what the payment process will be. Clarifying these items in the beginning will prevent any surprise expenses.
Yes. Homeowners should require that the contractor submit certificates verifying compliance with safety, insurance, workers' compensation and drug and alcohol testing programs. This will give you peace of mind that the contractor has gone through all the steps under industry regulations.
Yes. Every good contractor should have a list of recently completed jobs that you can see in their portfolio. They should also have a list of references that you can contact, or properties that you can see in person.
