When I first look for masonry work, I consulted the TrustedPros site and saw the perfect score for Oake Masonry. Could it be real? I called, left a message and Shane Oake contacted me promptly. Shane's free consultation was carried the next day. Shane explained very well the brick work to be done on my front porch and also the ones that were unnecessary and even ill advised to do. He didn't try to sell work that I didn't need. Thank you Shane for your honesty and guidance; without you, I might have made a very costly and regrettable mistake. The price for the work was fair and surprisingly reasonable considering all the work to be done. I reserved his services for the beginning of August 2015.
What a blessing! It now my turn to HIGHLY and CONFIDENTLY recommend Shane Oake as a mason, without any reservations. I was so impressed with Shane's work ethic, quality of work and thorough and courteous communication skills (in person, by phone or by e-mail).
He and his crew were on time as planned and were well equipped to do the job. They worked hard all day and cleaned up very well afterward. Now, my front porch looks great and the 47 or 48 new bricks blend amazingly well with the 56 years old original ones as they are practically unnoticeable to an untrained eye. Thanks to Shane's meticulous care and truly professional skills, I had a wonderful experience and could cross out this job from my to do repair list. Unfortunately, a friend of mine, who previously hired another contractor to do her brick work, was not lucky as I was. You will however, never regret to have called Shane Oake to restore your masonry, guaranteed! He's truly a real and honest pro that can be trusted.
I highly recommend Oake Masonry (Shane Oake). I noticed my chimney was looking rough, so I searched and found Shane. I got him to come and take a look at my chimney. He explained what was occurring and what he would do for me. His consultation helped me understand what I was up against. He sent me a quote which was reasonable. The finished product is excellent. I was quoted by others to replace the chimney and turns out this wasnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t necessary. As I said, I highly recommend Shane at Oake Masonry.
