Description Of Work:
Applied stacked stone (manufactured) to lower portion of front of home. Repair of dry rot.
Everything that others have written about Peter is true: he is professional, responsive, and a
tireless worker. But in addition, he has an artist's vision of what would look best in a completed
project. He takes into account the style/age of the home and landscaping. He helped expand our
original idea into a look that we love; and so many neighbor's comments have been so positive,
also. One of them stood admiring the work and said "It (the stonework) just looks like it's always
belonged there...." We are so grateful we found Peter.

Description Of Work:
"Peter installed brick on either side of our garage and also wrapped two entry columns. The work
turned out great. It looks better than I expected. Peter was quick to respond to my request for an
estimate and he was very reasonably priced. He got the job done quickly. I would for sure use him

"Our experience with Peter was excellent. He was quick to respond to my request for an estimate,
and we could tell that he knew what we were looking to accomplish. We have a modest home and
just needed a small amount of stone work to update the facade. Once we decided to go with Baker
Masonry, Peter promptly scheduled our job and finished it in a timely manner. He kept the work
area tidy and cleaned up completely when done. His work looks professional and I would not
hesitate to hire him again."

"Peter Baker and his assistant Chris built me a mailbox out of block and stone surrounding a large
metal mailbox. The job took 2 days, plus a few hours another day to pour a footing. I provided the
large dVault metal mailbox, which was an added cost, but Peter took care of everything else. His
price was very fair for the work involved and for the fine skill they exhibited in building the best
mailbox possible. All I can say is that they did a fantastic job matching the look of the stonework I
had on my house already. Their work was very efficient and skilled. The final product exceeds my
expectations. It is perfect! Even my mailman complimented the mailbox and said it was the nicest
one on his route! Now that's a real compliment!!!"
"I tried being handy and installing stone veneer on the front of the house by myself. I put in the
vapor barrier (heavy), lath (ouch), and scratch coat. When I went to put up the stones, they kept
falling off. After about 12 hours of work, I finally threw in the towel after having only 8-9 rocks up to
show for my efforts.
I called multiple places, and then stumbled across Peter at Baker Masonry. He totally saved me,
and even matched another estimate that I got from what seemed to be a less reliable person. Did a
thorough, honest job for a fair price and within a great amount of time."

"Peter built 3 cultured-stone pillars 4-5.5' high. Very high quality work Overall. I'd recommend Peter.
All 3 pillars were built square and level. They used concrete blocks -- put mud between and on top
of them, placed all cultured stone on that layer of mud, then grouted. All grout matched my existing
pillars and all stone matched my existing stone. Caps took a while...but that wasn't Peter's fault.
Cap work was good. Peter even helped me attach some signage. Good guy that I wouldn't hesitate
to use again."

"This is the 3rd job that Peter's company has done for us. This job was a LONG pathway around a
fountain and wondering through our front yard. He is extremely professional, estimates submitted
by email with specific drawing and dimensions, work is done on time, and site clean up is fabulous.
Most of all his masonry work is beautiful and creative where you wish to apply it. Previous work was
rebuilding a brick entrance which was hit by a car and building a walkway and seating patio around
another fountain. We TRUST Baker Masonry quality and honesty."

"SUPER! SUPER! SUPER! I have never believed that I could ever use these words rating a
contractor. Having a couple of different contractors for different parts of our remodeling project, we
were frustrated with their general unprofessional behaviour. From the moment Peter showed up to
give us an estimate and to the very last touches, he proved that it can be different. He did an
amazing job (although it was not cheap), and after the first day we realized that we did not need to
come home to check the progress or the quality of his work (as we had to do it with the others).
Professional, honest, very reliable, Peter and his partner did a high-end stonework on our house.
When they finished the job, they cleaned everything, including our car that was covered in dust
during the work. It was worth to spend that extra money for such an exceptional work."
