Ladies and Gentlemen,
The new patio installed by you folks exceeded our expectations.
We learned a lot from observing the building of the patio beginning with the establishment of the base gravel levels through the final color matching of the cobbles. The crew was .skilled, professional and a pleasure to have on our property.
The patio received its final test over the weekend when it endured several torrential rainstorms. Not a single puddle of water accumulated.
The patio is a pleasure to use and has added considerable value to our home. Thanks to all the Lester folks in management, the office and the crew.
David and Kate Quinn
It was a pleasure to work with you and your team from Lester’s, and this comes with our thanks and appreciation for a job well done.
Our patio, entryways and sidewalks all look great. We’re especially pleased with the smooth transition between each space and the craftsmanship and skill evident in every cut of copthorne, in every precisely joined corner. And, I think you must have sent us the A-Team Andreas and his four-man team were so nice to work with. They were always on time, very hard working, and very respectful of our home property and job site. They willingly answered our questions along the way and worked with us to make small changes on the job.
This was a quality job and good experience from start to finish! Many Thanks!
Rebecca and Bob Steinmeir
This letter is a 'thank you' for the excellent job of laying bricks on my driveway here on Guerin Road in Libertyville. The quality of workmanship was great, as you did on completely re-doing my patio with bricks, your men were hard working and my area was cleaned up after a days work.
I'm very proud of my brick patio and my new driveway. I've had several good comments from my neighbors on the looks.
Jackie and Joe Nemmers
"It looks amazing! I love it! The crew left the site very neat when they left. Thank you! "
Brian and Sue Yee
In every field of endeavor there are always those few people that go beyond that which is expected of them. Keith, you and your staff are some of these 'few' people.
Virginia and I extend to you and your staff our deepest appreciation, for superior results far beyond our expectations, achieved during the installation and completion of the Patio with Seat Walls, Water Feature and Walkways at our residence.
Glenn & Virginia Herczeg
"Just a quick note to let everybody know that it was a pleasure to work with Keith and the guys on our pavers project. Everything was finished with complete satisfaction.
Keith was so easy to work with. Whatever we wanted, Keith was willing to get done. He was repeatedly on site to make sure things were going OK."
Jerry and Carol Bender
Thank you so much for the beautiful walkway. We are very happy with the work. The stairs are easy to navigate and the brick landings are so beautiful that is looks like a picture from a gardening book of design. Thank you also for giving the project drainage under the walk, the entire project from design through installation reflects Lester's commitment to excellence in both materials and craftsmanship. We are very pleased with all aspects of the project and it has added real value to our home and neighborhood. Thank you so much. We love the attention to detail and workmanship."
Joe and Karen Patrick
"Dear Keith & Crew,
Thank you very much for the professionalism, attention to detail and hard work that went into our new patio!
We are very pleased with our changed backyard space and would highly recommend "Lester's" to family and friends. From first contact to project completion, your work ethic and priority of customer satisfaction shined through. We wish you continued success! Thanks,"
The Duffy Family
"Thank you for the outstanding job Lester’s did replacing our old brick and timber stairs with new brick and stone steps. The design is absolutely beautiful and we are beyond thrilled. The results far exceeded our expectations. It is apparent by the completed project that every detail was considered from the design to the installation. The end result is a reflection of you and your staff’s commitment to professionalism and craftsmanship.
Tom and Debbie Owens
I commend you on the timely scheduling of the work as well as the speedy completion in two days. Your crew worked diligently, particularly on the partial wall, until it met my expectation. At the end of a long day they took time to clean everything before they left.I am delighted with the result and will be happy to recommend your work.
