I used Kevin Murphy Construction to replace the stone veneer on a large section of the front of our house due to water damage that had been occurring over the 20+ years since it was built. He gave me a very reasonable quote compared to some of the others I received. But it wasn't until he and his crew came out to get started that I realized I had selected wisely. The attention to detail and the craftsmanship resulted in a finished product that looked so much better than the original. We changed the color slightly and added a slight mortar joint at his request - again attention to detail and his focus on creating a lasting finish, impermeable to water. Attention to detail was once again evident as he replaced the entire fašade of backing that was most likely the culprit for the water entry. He even addressed our steps on the front porch as a part of the overall project for aesthetic consistency, but also to get within code! His crew was always aware of keeping the work area clean, protecting other parts of the house, and they maintained a predictable work schedule. Seemingly small things that should be done every time, but don't always. The overall transformation was incredible, with a personal touch that let me know they treat every job as an equally important endeavor. That's why I would recommend, without hesitation, Kevin Murphy Construction for anyone with a small or large stone project seeking a craftsman with a commitment to quality.

Kevin knows his business. He was the first masonry contractor we spoke with and from our initial hello to our goodbyes our experience was top notch. He listened to our needs and gave us a complete description of what would be needed, a timeframe necessary to complete the job and a quote. He showed up at the precise time he said he would, the job took exactly as long as he had predicted, and the price did not vary from his original quote. The quality of his work is top notch. The brick stairway and landing to our home has never looked better. He also threw in a few small mortar repairs at no extra charge. In addition to everything else, he's also a really great guy. If I could give ten stars I would.
The brick stairway and landing to our homes front entrance had numerous damaged bricks and the tile mosaic on the landing was falling apart. Kevin repaired the steps and completely rebuilt the landing using a combination of various shades of brick to replicate the look of the brick on the house.

It is very difficult these days to find people who take pride in their work and do their jobs correctly. Kevin Murphy is a skilled craftsman who not only did an excellent job of rebuilding our brick front steps, but he went above and beyond for us. He showed up on schedule, explained the work he would do and how, and even surprised us and came out again to go the extra mile to make sure our new steps will last a good long time. His pricing is fair and competitive. We highly recommend Kevin Murphy Construction and would not hesitate to call on him again in the future.

Kevin and his crew came out to repair some bricks that dropped off from one of the walls of my house. He showed me where my builder didn't build a proper base for the bricks and walked me through each step to get it repaired. His pricing was very fair and they did a great job of cleaning up once they were done.

My wife and I live in a 40-year-old brick house that needed to have the front porch replaced with a new design and a back wall fixed that was being pulled down by a connected retaining wall. We interviewed several masons and liked Kevin the best; his prices were competitive also. Kevin was very helpful with the design phase, and he and his crew performed the work beautifully. They were able to reuse the brick at the back of the house so that there were no mis-matches. Kevin and his crew were punctual, professional, friendly and efficient. The combined cost of $7500 was well worth the money, and Kevin Murphy was truly a delight to do business with.

Kevin Murphy is the type of contractor that is rare and hard to find today. We found him honest, hardworking, punctual and easy to work with. Kevin's price was fair and competitive. He always kept us informed of everything he was doing and why. We would highly recommend Kevin Murphy and his company for any concrete, mortar, or brickwork etc., you are thinking of having done. Without question one of the best contractors I have ever worked with and I've worked with a lot. Highly recommended.

Thank goodness for Kevin Murphy. He fixed cracks within a retaining wall , a stairway crack over the garage and window, a loose brick within a archway, re-mortared our walkway, and fixed our mailbox. When he and his crew arrived, they spotted 2 other areas (that an inspector and I missed) that needed attention and added them to the list without adding to the quote. He also patched up our mailbox that had loose bricks. Kevin was also able to help me with a small project (not brick related) when another contractor pulled a no-show. Kevin's work was top notch and I wouldn't hesitate to use him again or recommend him to others. He was by far the most professional of any contractor I've ever worked with.
