Here what our customers say!

Dennis did everything he said he would. With some weather delays (as I expected), everything was completed in a timely fashion. I was kept in the loop at all stages and all communications/questions were professional and prompt. I would not hesitate to use 1st Choice again for any masonry work!

Angie's List

Dennis and his crew were extremely professional. Dennis was prompt to provide an estimate and to follow up with me. Dennis and his crew spot pointed my entire house and ensured that the mortar and texture matched as closely as possible. They also cleaned up the work area when they were complete. I am highly satisfied with the work they provided and would recommend them.
