Custom Stonescapes



We chose Custom Stonescapes to do our walkway because they took the time to understand what we were looking for. The quote came in on budget and they completed the job on time. The staff was courteous and they did a great job cleaning up. I would recommend them to all of my friends and neighbours...

Custom StoneScapes did extensive work for me in April 2011. They did a fabulous job on my driveway and on the wall that they installed. David Krafchik is a man of his word. He completed the project in a timely way and within the budget - notwithstanding constant interruptions due to rain. David and his workers were efficient and polite. They left a tidy job site at the end of each work day. Materials were stored out of the way and there was a lot of planning which went into the job- which permitted us to park on the driveway on most nights while work was ongoing. I am very impressed with David and with the way he conducts his business. The greatest endorsement of David is that I would hire him again when I next need stone work. David is a delight to deal with. I unhesitatingly recommend him and his superior work.

Thanks again for everything. You guys did a great job. I would recommend you and your crew to anyone who is looking for a professional, respectful and up front experience. You provided good advice and your knowledge backed that advice which made me feel comfortable with your decisions. Your work ethic showed in the care, attention to detail, and honesty you displayed throughout the job. Your crew always left a clean site from day to day and I felt like you really respected my home and the running of my business during construction. All I can say is that I can't wait to have you back to do further work in my home!

Thanks again for all your hard work to you and the guys! Jenny

I found the work done to be of excellent quality and we had both our driveway and backyard patio interlocked. Dave and his team were highly professional and knowledgeable. Importantly they paid attention to detail and his advice and judgement were highly valued in the decision making process. They did the job in a timely fashion and ensured once complete that all the byproducts from the work had been cleaned up, and the house was left in the same way as before the work began. I certainly recommend him for any work to be done.

thanks again,

After receiving quotes from several contractors, we decided to go with Custom StoneScapes to redo the driveway and walkway.  And, we are very glad we did!  David and his team were true professionals and knew exactly what needed to be done.  Their care to attention and detail in installing the new driveway resulted in a new, fantastic look to the house.  The job was done on time, and with meticulous care.  David worked closely with us in selecting the stone and designing the driveway, and his expertise and honesty was appreciated.  I would certainly recommend Custom Stonescapes for walkway and driveway landscaping work.

Dave Krafchik and his crew were a pleasure to deal with.  We hired them to cover our front steps and porch with flagstone and to build a natural stone retaining wall to surround a flower bed.  We found them to be responsive to any questions or concerns that we had and Dave was reachable whenever we had any questions, including evenings and weekends.  The crew would show up as scheduled, were pleasant to deal with and cleaned up the site after they were finished each day.  We’re very happy with the outcome – our front porch, stairs and flower bed look great!

My neighbour and I each recently had a new parking pad and retaining wall installed, as well as an existing shared asphalt driveway replaced. In addition to Custom StoneScapes (Dave Krafchik), we had met with at least a dozen other contractors. We met with everything from extremely large construction outfits to one-man shows. Dave however stood out among them from the start and was the only contractor who we all had a good feeling about from the start.

We decided to go with Custom StoneScapes primarily as Dave was able to convince us of three things:

• He understood what we were looking for

• He and his team had the necessary skill and experience to complete the job on time

• The quote was reasonable for the work being performed

In addition to Dave's professionalism, we were also very impressed with his employees as well. They maintained a polite and respectful attitude throughout the job despite frequent interruptions, and were very responsive to questions from ourselves, neighbours, kids coming/going from school etc. This is definitely not typical in my experience with other contractors in the past.

Throughout the job, the public areas around the work site were kept meticulous. Even our own yard was kept sufficiently clear and safe, so that our 12-year was able to safely come and go during the day. This definitely helped avoid many potential complaints from our neighbours.

We are all extremely happy with the completed job. Dave managed to provide a common theme across the two yards, yet at the same time, managed to make each side to look unique. We would highly recommend Dave and his team for any similar jobs you may be contemplating along these lines.
