To whom it may concern:

Flavio La Rocca & Sons, Inc. reconstructed our slate walkway and patio in May 2015. We couldn’t be more pleased with the workmanship; both the walkway and patio, which were in terrible shape after the rough winter, now look beautiful. In addition, Flavio La Rocca completed the work in the time frame and at the price they quoted in their original estimate. Overall, working with Flavio La Rocca was a wonderful experience; we highly recommend them.

We are very pleased with the masonry work that was recently completed on our home by F. La Rocca & Sons. The men arrived promptly early each morning, and worked steadily throughout the day. At the end of each work day, the entire area was cleaned and all materials stored.

The men did far more extensive work than we expected, and the porch, stairs, walk, retaining wall and driveway look like new.

Mr. La Rocca responded promptly to our request for an estimate, and the work was completed on budget and within the specified time frame.

The front of our house looks beautiful, and we have received many compliments on the work. We certainly highly recommend Mr. La Rocca to anyone needing masonry services.

Dear Mr. La Rocca:

My compliments to you, Cathy and the construction crew for a job well done on the installation of the new Patio and the masonry repairs to the front stairs and walkway.

I am delighted about the results of this project and enjoyed working with you and your staff. Your expertise, professionalism and advice were most appreciated.

I have recommended your company to my neighbors at 105 Mountain Avenue who are in need of masonry work and I understand from speaking with them that they will be engaging your services.

I look forward to working with you again in the future.

Very truly yours,

Dear Mr. La Rocca:

Thank you for a job well done on the repair of the driveway walls at my home. The Flavio La Rocca operation, generally, is very professional and reliable. Given the reputation the company enjoys, I was impressed with the efficiency exhibited in “La Rocca fashion”.

I must mention the two young men, Jami and Roman, who primarily worked on the partial reconstruction of the driveway walls and the installation of stone veneer. With minimal supervision, they worked very neatly, quietly, and diligently to complete the job. They also patiently answered questions I might have had. Their dedication, pride in their work, and knowledge are evident.

I would be remiss if I failed to mention the professionalism of your Secretary, Cathy, who handled each call very carefully and with true expertise.

Again, thank you for a job well done.

Very Truly yours,

To whom it may concern:

Recently we had our driveway repaved and the walk from the driveway to the front door replaced. To choose a company to do the work, we drove around the area and noticed the good work done on driveways where the La Rocca sign was displayed. As a result we engaged them to do ours. We were not disappointed. They brought teams of skilled workers supervised by a member of the family. The work project was finished in 4 days as predicted by the Estimate. We are very pleased by the final result and so do passerby who stop and look hard at the driveway.

Finally I must recommend the Office Administrator, Cathy Porco for her politeness and the way she guided us throughout the waiting period while the permit was being processed. We recommend Flavio La Rocca and Sons, Inc.

I highly recommend Flavio La Rocca and Sons for any masonry projects. We chose Flavio to install stone veneer around our house and front steps because of his experience, but also because he was honest, professional and easy to talk to. Once we hired him, we were able to choose our stone from a variety of samples, and we were also able to view it before installation. While quality was important to us, the look of the stone was equally as important. Flavio assured us that as long as we communicated our needs to him, we would like the results. He also encouraged us to share our input with him and the crew during installation. Our house looks beautiful and we have received so many compliments from our family, friends and neighbors.

Flavio was onsite every day, and if the crew could not work due to weather, the office manager called me first thing in the morning to let me know. Our project was completed on time.

This is the second time in as many years that I have used Mr. La Rocca’s company to perform work at my home. I am delighted to be able to say I am once again completely satisfied with the way the project went and the quality of the final product. The project was completed on schedule even though the scope of the project grew as I added on additional areas in need of restoration. Mr. La Rocca expertise in the area of restoration benefited the end product as he suggested ways to incorporate repairs that when completed blended in with the original work that was done over 100 years ago. Finishing touches like back filling areas with top soil and seeding were not stated in the contract however they were not treated as “extras”. The cleanup after the job, and the finishing touches are just as important as the “heavy” work. Job well done!

From the very start after estimating the work, you thoroughly explained each step of the process and payments for us to have a clear understanding on what you were going to do. As you promised and guaranteed, everything was done accordingly and promptly on time. There was no need for any negotiation and or arguing which is hard to avoid with other companies. The entire process went very smoothly. The workers were all very pleasant which gave us a feeling of trustworthiness and responsibility.

The front steps and the driveway are beautifully done. Now we don’t need to worry about any cracks, hazards and the way they look. Thank you very much for a wonderful job and experience.

It is with great pleasure that I submit this letter of recommendation on behalf of Flavio La Rocca & Sons Inc. My initial engagement for this company included:

A removing, salvaging and rebuilding my retaining wall;

B raising and salvaging the walkway pavers;

C furnishing and installing new colored stucco to the base of my house;

D demolishing, removing, disposing and installing new blacktop to my driveway;

E cleaning out the entire surface of my garage floor, furnishing and installing new
epoxy coating.

However, as the work began, I added more major undertaking which involved:

F excavating the backyard, by removing and disposing soil, loose stones and tree
stumps, leveling out and seeding grass area;

G constructing new stone retaining wall 70’ wide x 6’ high;

H excavating trench and installing new automatic sprinkler system;

I removing gravel and grass as necessary from the four sides of the property and
installing sod on all sides.

Throughout all of these undertakings, every operation was professionally handled. Working with Flavio was an absolute joy. The customer service of this company is superb!! I could not have expected any better response to the queries I had. This company squarely suited my personality as I tend to be a person who wants every “I” dotted, and every “t” crossed. They have certainly met all of my concerns and beyond. I consider every dollar on this project very well spent, because after completion I was one hundred percent satisfied. This company will certainly be the one I call upon for any future needs I may have.

To Whom It May Concern,

From my original call to Cathy, to Flavio’s site visit for an estimate, to Flavio’s suggestions and recommendations, everything was extremely professional, courteous, and informational. The workmen were experienced tradesmen and under Flavio’s supervision finished the seating wall, made from all natural stone and the installation of the patio beyond our expectations.

I found out what a caring owner is all about, when , at 6:30 AM Flavio was at our house hosing down the seating wall and patio to ensure there would be no cracking of the concrete due to the extreme heat and the curing effect of the concrete.

I would highly recommend Flavio’s firm for any of the services he offers.

To Whom It May Concern,

This letter is to recommend Flavio La Rocca & Sons, Inc. for any masonry, driveway paving, drainage, stone work you may have. They did an excellent job for us on our driveway Blacktop, two retaining walls, two entrances with natural stone and Bluestones. They beautified our driveway with Belgian block curbing on the sides and an apron at the driveway entrance. They also turned an ugly old wall into a show piece by installing mosaic stone veneer over it. They bid the job at a reasonable price. Flavio, the owner was on site every day to supervise the work and his workers were on time, neat and did a fantastic job that not only pleased us, but it was the envy of our neighbors. Flavio finished the job on time, addressed our concerns and came in on budget as promised!

If you have any need for any work on your home or business, see Flavio. He accommodated us to finish an additional stone wall and a street curb in front of our property. He does everything to code so you have no worries about your local municipality Building dept. See Flavio at Flavio La Rocca & Sons, Inc. They will not let you down!

Dear Mr. La Rocca,

Thank you for providing us with your expertise in paving and masonry. We are now enjoying a more beautiful and functional driveway and front walkway, and hearing compliments from our neighbors.

We appreciate very much and applaud you and your team for the exceptional experience we had working with you from start to finish.

We had requested initial consultation and estimates of this work from three different companies, including yours, of seemingly comparable reputation. We pursued your company based on that first meeting. You were thoroughly knowledgeable not only of the prospective work, but also of the process in acquiring the required permits and allowable metrics. Equally important to us, you were immensely professional. We could not be happier with our experience throughout the duration of this project.

This project finished ahead of schedule, on budget, and with the design and quality upon which we agreed. We are pleased that you handled all processing of permits. In addition, we appreciate your willingness to coordinate electrical work with a separate contractor.

Your company’s outstanding customer service spans the whole team – from your leadership to your administrative staff. All communications were prompt, fair, kind and considerate.

We would surely turn to your company for future projects, and would highly recommend you to our family and friends.

Wishing you and your company sustained success.

I just want to send a thank you note to Flavio and his entire staff at Flavio La Rocca & Sons, Inc. for a job well done on my property. Flavio and his crews showed up when they said they would, completed the work as detailed in the proposal on time, on budget and left my property looking like the front cover of a home and garden magazine. I couldn’t have asked for a better job.

It’s great to do business with an outfit that’s professional from start to finish, has all the necessary equipment for any job big or small and has talented, well trained and courteous personnel performing the work. When the owner of the company is out there directing the workforce, you know he is taking personal care of the job and final product.

I would not hesitate to call on Flavio La Rocca & Sons, Inc. again for any of my contractor needs.

Dear Flavio and Company,

We would like to say “Thank you” for a job very well done and customer-first attitude to Flavio and company.

We recently hired F. La Rocca and Sons Inc. to demolish and replace our existing driveway and sidewalk, repoint a retaining wall as well as install a Cultec drywall for proper drainage. After several estimates we decided to go with La Rocca based on their professional demeanor, detail oriented proposal and breadth of experience in the field. The demolition work was completed quickly with minimal damage to adjacent areas and the new installation looks great and exceeds all expectations we had. It was a smooth operation from start to finish and Cathy, from the office, kept us aware of the next steps to ensure there were not surprises. It was a pleasure doing business with you and we would definitely recommend this company to anyone in need of similar work.

RE: F. La Rocca & Sons Services

It is my pleasure to supply this letter of recommendation on behalf La Rocca & Sons.

They handled several challenging jobs on our property from repaving a driveway and installing a drain in front of our garage which led to a bigger project of taking care of some drainage issues on the sides of our home. They maintained high standards of customer service as well as utilized quality materials. Their workers were courteous and our property was always left in perfect condition each night.

The owner Flavio really cares about his work and it showed with this follow through and great attitude. Flavio is always pleasant to deal with and had great solutions for our problems. His office is very well organized and always returned calls and showed up when he said he would. They keep track of all the details necessary to keep things running smoothly. We are very satisfied with the outcome.

It is beyond my expectations in every way and I am now proud of what we have done at Iona in memory of our son Paul.

Vito and I also appreciate all the extra work you did by seeding the necessary areas and putting the red chips around the building. I want you to know I am very happy now with the building and the courtyard which is what should have been there from the beginning and the benches are truly wonderful and will be enjoyed by the students at Iona Prep for many, many years.

Your company did a great job keeping us updated on what to expect and when. Your crew was polite and hardworking, and they clearly knew what they were doing! The job was done efficiently and on time. And we are very happy with the results. It looks great. It drains great. Your crews were very careful not to damage plantings along the driveway. They even returned the dog’s “invisible fence” to working order.

Flavio came to the work several times a day, helped on the job, and was available to us whenever we had questions. Also, his team was very impressive.

Having just walked out of my home and admired my new front walkway and driveway, I thought it would be appropriate to write you a short note to express my thanks for the superior work that your company provided me with on our home renovations.

You never know what you’re going to experience when you begin doing business with a contractor, a painter, a roofer or any tradesman for that matter.

I’m happy to say that my experience with you, your crew, and your office personnel was a pleasure.

You were always prompt and on time for our meetings, you told me precisely how the job would advance day by day, and everything went like clockwork.

Your crew is skilled and they were friendly, neat, and clean. My renovations look great and I have only you to thank for that.

Feel free to use my name as a reference for any future customers that want to learn how a past customer feels about your work.

Dear Flavio,

I simply had to write this letter. I have dealt with many contractors in my life and I have NEVER written a letter to express my complete satisfaction. I’m sure we have all had negative experiences with contractors who we would love to write a negative letter about, but this experience was quite opposite.

Your men completed the job in a timely and thorough manner. They cleaned up the work site at the end of the job so my yard was back to what it was prior to your arrival. But that is not all I would like to say, my front steps are just shy of a masterpiece. Everyone in the neighborhood is talking about them. Random people are driving by and giving “thumbs up” signs. It really brings a smile to your face.

I guess when you tell someone you are going to do a job, you really do it, and do it right! Your word means a lot. In the middle of the work we ran into a few things that were somewhat unexpected and your solutions in order to “complete” the job were absolutely beautiful.

We realize that you went ABCD “Above and Beyond the Call of Duty” and we really appreciate it. Simply stated, I have never had a contractor that held true to his price even when it ultimately involved doing more than what might have been expected to complete the job. Only someone who takes such pride in their work and their reputation would do such a thing.

I would recommend your men and your company to anyone. In fact, I know at least two people who have already reached out to you for more work. Congratulations on being the kind of company you can really feel good about.

Dear Mr. LaRocca:

Please accept my very sincere thanks and appreciation for the correction of a very serious flooding problem that resulted from the street resurfacing that was done in front of my home.

I appreciate very much your immediate response to my concern. You inspected the problem, recommended the installation of a drainage system, and also recommended the replacement of the entire driveway with Black Top. Our initial conference was greatly enhanced by a professional presentation of licenses, certificates of liability insurance, schematic diagrams and specifications of the drainage system, and photographs and references regarding your past work performance.

I appreciate even more, however, the quality of work that was done – from demolition and excavation to the final application of Black Top. From beginning to end, you and your crew demonstrated considerable respect for my property and the adjacent property of neighbors.

Yesterday’s torrential down pouring of rain provided an invaluable test for the evaluation of your workmanship; and, needless to say, I am more than pleased with the results. There was absolutely no flooding in either my garage or the basement den.

Thank you, again, and wishing for your continued success, I am,
