What Our Friends Say: Reviews From Our Clients

Thousands of people and businesses have come to us for their masonry, waterproofing, landscape and renovation needs. Read their reviews to find out more about the exceptional team at Flintstones!
We are extremely happy with Flintstones. They are professional, friendly, and we got exactly what we were promised. The three workers were fantastic and created a chimney that exceeded our expectations. They worked quickly, neatly, and respected our property. We would recommend them in an instant. Well done Flintstones!
Flintstones replaced our old drainage tiles, repaired foundation cracks and waterproofed our basement walls using top of the line materials and workmanship. The workers were very polite and extremely accommodating throughout the entire project. Darryl made sure every question about the process was answered to our satisfaction. The attention to detail and work safety was top notch. We highly recommend this professional company. They live up to their motto: “do it once, do it right!”
We love having Flintstone do our small and some not so small jobs fixing things around our home. It has always been a pleasure to work with Mike P. and his team. When I see the name Flintstone while riding my bike or on one of your vehicles I get a smile on my face thinking ‘there go the good guys’. Flintstone does not stop until it’s all done to your satisfaction. We can and always will recommend them highly.

These guys are great! From the development of the vision, the detailed budget, to the work itself, this company is top drawer. The work was high quality, carefully done. Communication excellent. Any questions we had were answered quickly and with a smile. The price was a bit higher that other quotes, but came in at budget, with no surprises. Again, that quality! We dealt with Mike, Mike and Rhett- all guys I’d have over for dinner. An absolute pleasure. We’ll have them back for other projects.

Crews were polite and professional, quality of the work was top notch and the job was finished ahead of schedule.

Flintstones did an excellent job replacing the clay drainage tiles on three sides of the house as well as waterproofing the foundations
and completing with cement replacement on the sidewalks, replanting bushes and seeding patches of the lawn. I appreciated having a written copy of the various segments of the contract with potential costs plus having those various segments explained. Also, for being kept informed of additional costs such as connecting to the Municipal line. All workers worked hard, I must say, and were helpful making it possible to get out on a ‘moat’ until lastly the sidewalk repaired.

Rhett Peterson and his team at Flinstones gave us absolutely amazing service. Days before our daughter’s wedding festivities, we needed masonry and landscaping work done for safety and cosmetic reasons. Rhett was right on it! He came to our house, consulted with us and work began almost immediately. We were very pleased with the resulting work and would certainly use Flinstones again and highly recommend them to others.

From start to finish working with Flintstones was an excellent experience. From the beginning we were impressed with the way Mike and his team approached understanding our goals for the replacement of our driveway and updating the stone facade of our home. They listened to what we wanted and helped us work through all the possibilities to create a project that fit both our aesthetic goals and the budget.

Throughout the project the team did a great job of communicating what to expect with each phase of construction, anticipating many of our questions before we could ask and promptly responding to any questions that came up along the way. The crews were fantastic, professional and polite, keeping the project moving with no wasted time and leaving the space clean and tidy at the end of every day.

Finally the attention to detail and workmanship shows in the final results. We are so happy with the quality of work and the integrity of the construction. We’ve been through a few renovations with a few different companies in the past and the work done by Flintstones is the best we’ve seen. It’s been our pleasure to recommend Flintstones to several of our friends.

I saw a Flintstones lawn sign which is fairly common in my neighborhood that said “Do it once, do it right!” and reached out to them for some drainage and concrete work. 5 years ago I had a concrete guy (company) install a garage slab at another property and it was not level so the garage door had a 1 3/4inch gap at one side. The concrete guy wouldn’t answer my calls and return to fix it. I ended up getting the garage door guy to install a metal plate to the garage door to seal the gap, but now the metal plate has cut into the weather stripping and destroyed it on one side. It is just a giant mess. I didn’t want to get a half fast job done again and I felt I could count on the Flintstones because of their strong reputation and I was right. Super happy with the job and impressed with the professionalism of the company.
We were very pleased with the whole process of getting a new chimney in Dec. 2016. From the first visit to estimate the scope and price to the our new, good-looking chimney we found all the Flintstones’ crew to be professional, considerate and very good at communicating. We are glad we chose them–they do excellent work.

My first inquiry was met with a very prompt and very professional response. Mike and his team were very thorough in assessing and evaluating potential problems and solutions.

Our perimeter drainage system had failed which resulted in water problems around the rear and sides of the house causing concrete – already sitting on loosely packed base – to shift and crack. The drainage system was replaced and new base was properly replaced and compacted with new concrete poured. On top of that, the concrete and the foundation was properly sealed while they had it exposed and the concrete was reinforced with rebar. A lot of steps were taken to ensure that the end product will last a long time. Additionally, after noticing that our staircase was dangerously unstable, they were able to incorporate support pillars into the plans – something that we had overlooked ourselves but are very happy that it was done.

Professionalism was exhibited by the crew as well as in the manner they worked. The site was cleaned up after each an every day, showing almost no telltale signs that construction work was in progress when the crew was not there – very tidy. They even made the effort to come by and do additional touch-ups.

The quality of work is top-notch. Not only was there a focus on how the end product looked on the surface, but they took steps to ensure that it lasts. Communication was very clear and concise and Mike did a very good job with keeping me up to date on the progress of the project during every step. Most important was that they did everything to give me peace of mind during such a significant project, and to assure that my home was in good hands.

Thanks to Mike and the team!

When we decided to renovate our patio, we contacted several companies to do the work. The first company we called never called back. The second company gave us a quote but didn’t ask us what we wanted. Then we found Flintstones. They sat down to talk to us about our vision, came back to us with plans the next week that we were very impressed with. Our outdoor living space is now finished and it is more than we ever imagined – there are smiles on our faces! From the moment the building started we had confidence in Flintstones. All of the workers were energetic, polite, and very competent. Communication was clearly very important to them. When we changed our minds on what they were building partway through the project, they were happy to comply without complaint or increase in cost. Next time we need a project done, Flintstones will be the first company we call! Thanks for everything.

We hired Flintstones to add stonework to the front our home, and they did an extremely high quality, professional job, from sales to installation. They completed the work on time, were always responsive, and provided excellent customer service. They ensured that the waterproofing and scratch coat were of the highest standards, and everyone worked to the motto “do it once, do it right.” The quote was higher than expected but we are happy with the results, and now receive compliments from our neighbours about the superior workmanship.

A class act all the way. From initial analysis of my old chimney, during which I as able to view the camera results, to estimate, to deciding on form, till construction, it was a thoroughly pleasant experience. The safety setup and protections against roof damage was awesome, and the construction and cleanup left me with a terrific new chimney, pictures that I took, a clean roof and yard, and happy thoughts. At several points along the way, I climbed my own ladder to ask questions, and was given friendly explanations about the various steps and reasons for them. Although I would have, I didn’t need to let them use my house, as they had made arrangements to go elsewhere for lunch, coffee, and bathroom breaks.

I must applaud the service we received from Flintstones Masonry. Their professional attitude and work ethic was exceptional. They had great design ideas and their attention to detail is second to none. They were careful to protect our property and gardens and they took the time to do a thorough cleanup afterwards. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Flintstones Masonry.

I had Flintstones come to redo a tile deck that was leaking into a storage room underneath it back in 2011. (The previous job was done many years before and not done by Flintstones.)

Mike was very personable, punctual, knowledgeable, and efficient. From start to finish, the work was done on time and there was no change in cost from the initial quote. Three years went by and I noticed water coming into that storage room again. I contacted Mike who recalled the job he had done years before. He was eager to figure out the problem and get it fixed. Over the course of many weeks, Mike and his team slowly eliminated different sources of the problem. They finally discovered the issue and work was done to fix that specific problem AT NO CHARGE TO ME.  All of this was done under warranty. I do not know of any company (masonry or home improvement) that would provide this kind of service 3 years later.
I would recommend Flintstones Masonry & Home Improvements to anybody! All of the employees I met were friendly, efficient, and seemed to love what they do! Thanks again guys!

The time had finally come to repair our leaking chimneys on our 1919 home. We were amazed at the professionalism with Flintstones Masonry all along the way. From estimate to finish they were courteous, knowledgeable, and helpful. Their estimate for the work involved was fair, and they stuck to it. No unpleasant surprises! They even remembered to keep the gates closed for our dog. We are most happy with the fine work on our home.

Originally we were looking to do only the roof of our house. We had different companies come and give us estimates. Cory was the only one that beside the estimate for the roof took the time to notice and point that the chimney was falling apart. He took a video showing how easily he could take bricks out like it was a Jenga game. He explained the problems that having a chimney in this bad of a condition was doing to the inside of the house. We were grateful to have him point this problem to us as we could do the work while the roof was being done as well! We got an estimate and the options of bricks and styles. We liked their professionalism and got them to the chimney for us. They were diligent, responsible, fast and clean. We are very happy with the work they did and would recommend them to anybody that needs their chimney redone!

Several cracks in the foundation of our 102-year old Fairfield home, too much surface runoff, and the general trend towards wetter winters led us to Flintstones’ website. But it was the immediate response to our request for an inspection and the thoroughness of our initial consultation that made us decide to work with this company. The Flintstones crew, after some digging, discovered that we had no perimeter drains, as is common in our neighbourhood, so it was a big job that we soon agreed upon. Thankfully, all digging was done by hand, resulting in minimal disruption to our garden, which was very important to us. We were impressed by the number of skilled, hard-working men Flintstones brought to the task and by the co-ordination of the job by the project manager. Good communication, a high-level of professionalism, and completion of a project to a standard above-and-beyond what is to code, kept the City inspectors happy and ourselves delighted. We highly recommend this company.

I am at a loss of words as to describe how truly amazing every member of the Flintstones team has been with our chimney repair. From our first emergency call with a leak into our basement and living room to cleaning our entire front yard as part of completing the job every step has been ideal. True craftsmen and conscientious members of our community feels like an huge understatement. Mike and every member of his his crew are always up beat, hard working and friendly. A strong focus on both job site safety and quality of work for the “boots on the ground” masons was both refreshing and admirable in a day and age where unfortunately these important considerations are glazed over in favour of profits by too many contractors. A sense of satisfaction in being part of not only an excellent and great value project for us but also a honest and fair job for those doing the work was a factor I had not previously considered and am truly proud to have been a part of. Their quality of work surpasses their positive attitude with every brick in the correct place square and true, providing their expert opinion with the few judgement calls needed always helping to lead us in the right direction. A suggested upgrade in materials for our hearth allowed us to save significantly on the install labour ending in a more affordable and exquisite final result. I can not imagine hiring another contractor for any of the multiple services they offer in the future and will always adamantly suggest them to friends, family and colleagues.

I couldn’t be happier with hiring Flintstones Masonry to finish out the basement in my 1912 Fairfield home. The finished space is absolutely stunning! Everyone was such a pleasure to work with and the entire process flowed smoothly and as promised. They truly are the best!!! I’m already looking forward to having them help me with my next project!

Colleen Kensit

We needed our chimney redone. Flinstones Masonry came out right away and gave me an estimate. They explained everything that needed to be done and how they would do it. The crew was friendly and very professional. They had a lot of options for how my finished chimney would look. The job was done on time. When the crew left everything was clean and there was no damage done to my garden.
My chimney looks great and I do not have to worry about it in the future.

We are writing this letter to thank you and your company, Flintstones Masonry, for the exceptional job you completed on our walkway and entry stairs in the fall of 2015. Your company came highly recommended and your guys lived up to the hype.

From the initial interview with you and Cory Brune, to the many talks with Mike Gibbs and Marvin Olson, we were thoroughly impressed with the level of professionalism and attention to detail your team exemplified. First and foremost, your organization and planning were exceptional. I was impressed with the fluidity of the project and your company’s ability to manage the job from start to finish, coordinating with the subcontractors and dealing with last minute changes and curve balls that were encountered along the way. Your confidence in your team and project experience made us feel comfortable throughout the process. Every member of your team was a pleasure to talk to, extremely polite, and courteous while on the jobsite.

I wish to point out that Tyler went well “above and beyond” the job description to make sure we were satisfied with the end product. His commitment and eye for details epitomize the high standards of quality and workmanship characterized by Flintstones Masonry. The choice of basalt for the stone stairs is truly the talk of the neighborhood. I can’t speak more highly of all your employees and their professionalism. Your company showed diligence and dedication to finish the project and help our family get back to normalcy. Everything turned out way better than we could have envisioned. We cannot imagine hiring another contractor for any of the multiple services you offer when the need arises and will gladly recommend you to friends, family and colleagues.

We are extremely happy we were able to find the right team. You and your company came through!

You have our sincerest heartfelt thanks…

Jeff & Bonnie Schouwstra

I had to have the exterior drainage system replaced on an older home. I don’t live in Victoria and all my dealings with Flintstones were by e-mail. They were very easy to communicate with and responded promptly to all my correspondence. The job was done on time and on budget. Based on photographs and a report from an on-site contact, the work was done well, with proper cleanup (including landscaping) and attention to detail. Thanks Mike!

Cheryl Schultz

I had Flintstones Masonry redo my back patio this summer. Although there were issues with drainage in the area, Mike and his team took every necessary step to ensure that the finished product looked perfect, and will stand the test of time.

The whole crew is very professional, well trained and friendly. If you need the job done right, you can count on Flintstones!

We first used Flintstones to rebuild our chimney, and after receiving such prompt and courteous service, we had them build us a weather-resistant deck, blast and widen our driveway finishing it with paving stones, restore the sagging corner of our house, re-roof and finally create a spectacular granite fireplace in our living room. Because our house was built in 1927, we discovered several problems during our renovation and Mike de Palma of Flintstones promptly dealt with these potentially serious problems with minimal disruption to our lives.

I would highly recommend using Flintstones if you want a clean, prompt and high-quality restoration.

 

Did you have a good experience with us? We’d LOVE to hear from you!
