“I had some other projects in mind, and they kind of shot down the other projects. Maybe it was because I previously shared a budget, and they didn't think they could get the project done in that budget. I was looking for more.”

“They are very knowledgeable, and they have been in business for a long time, and it shows. I like how the owner comes out to check to make sure that the work is up to the standards that he set.”

“It was last August. I'm very happy with what they did. Excellent. I'd recommend them to anybody. They did everything they said they were going to do. They did it very efficiently, very quickly. The help that they had doing it were very personable. I couldn't have asked for a better group of people to work and they worked so efficiently, quickly and everything. I was surprised it was done so quickly. They did a whole paving patio in the backyard. Just the patio. I'd give them an A+. I was very, very happy with them. I would be very likely to recommend them to a friend; I've already done it.”

Review by

“They put in a paver patio and some stairs and like a fire pit. Wall. No driveway or anything. I'd give them a B. They were pretty good. I'm on the fence with a couple of things.”

Review by
02/06/2017

“They put in a brick patio and walkway. They showed up when they said they were going to show up. They actually came back a second time to make sure everything was going to be the way we wanted it to be. They did a great job, and it was beautiful. Everything about them was great. I just had one problem. They kind of messed up my fence, and I've been waiting for them to come back about that, but they haven't yet. They were all very pleasant, very positive, and very customer-service oriented. No complaints about that at all. I give them an A+ overall.”

Review by
02/06/2017

“They put in a paver patio in the backyard. They were very personable, they were honest, and their quote was what they charged me. They were also able to make some recommendations while they were onsite that actually worked out better for us in terms of placement. They were just so professional and courteous, and they sent a thank-you card after. I will definitely hire them again. They were great. They are an A to me.”

Review by
02/06/2017

“They put a patio in on the side of the house, and they put a walkway in the front. They were professional, they were fast, they were good. I can't really think of anything negative to say. They get a B from me.”

Review by
02/06/2017

“They did a walkway for me. They were very thorough, and they did a good job. They were just very good, very capable, and completed the job on time. I would say they get the top mark from me; an A+.”

Review by
01/25/2017

“They're very good. They do a good job. They almost did it too quickly, but everything was fine. They cleaned up nicely, and the price was pretty reasonable. They put on a retaining wall for me. There were no problems. It just went smoothly, and they were in-and-out pretty quickly. They're an A+ company.”

Review by
01/25/2017

“They did a patio and a walkway for me. The overall process, from beginning to finish, was positive. From price, to service, to the workers, the overall experience was good. The owner himself coming out here and dealing with me. Just, the overall experience was very delightful. Honestly, the workers, they started at like 7 in the morning and they finished the whole project at 9 o'clock at night. It was pretty impressive. They had a lot of work to do, it was in July, so right before the end of June. And fourth of July weekend was coming up, and they had so many jobs to do. And believe me, they worked very hard. I'd recommend them to anybody, an A+. They are an A+ across the board. I'd be very likely to recommend them to my friends and colleagues.”

“They did a job for my home. They were very on-budget, they were clean, and they were in-and-out on a timely basis. They did some pavers in the front of my driveway. They're an A+ company.”

Review by

“They did all the work for me. They were great. They were very professional, on-time, and they did great work. They did a patio for me. It was A+ across the board; A+ for everything.”

Review by

“They built the patio. They had a competitive price in their estimate, they stuck to it, and they finished the job quickly. I would give them an A across the board.”

Review by

“I had a good experience. They did the pavers for us.”

Review by
02/29/2016

“The gentleman that worked here worked diligently and quickly. They were in and out as quickly as they told me they would be, and the people were very nice and polite while they were here. They did paver work, landscaping, and driveway work. We liked the price, and we liked the people that we spoke to when they came in and gave us our estimate. It’s totally an A grade. We had no problems.”

Review by
02/18/2016

“I could not have been happier. They were very honest, took the time, and created a design plan for us. They came when they said they would, got the job done very quickly, and exceeded our expectations. They also really helped us with picking out pavers and giving us recommendations because it was our first experience with talking about the design and the colors based on our house. They did a great job. They did a paver patio and a granite step down onto a paved driveway. I’d chosen them from a friend. When I was getting quotes, a friend of mine said she’d used Mento for her paving. She had her driveway paved, and they had done that a couple years prior, so he was actually one of our last estimates to get because I had already gotten three or four. I wanted someone who could do both jobs. I initially started out with people who do the paving, and another company doing the asphalt driveway, but then at the end, we ended up going with a company that could do both. I’d give them an A+.”

“They were willing to work with my budget and they were able to solve my problems with really good ideas, so they really helped me. They did paving, they did landscaping, they did masonry, they put in a walkway. First, they're in my town and I've lived there for many years and I know they're there. I had put out a request to several landscaping companies and asked for quotes and Mento was the only one that came back with questions and didn't want to do over the top work. They didn't try to oversell the job. They really tried to do what I wanted. I did have one problem, for that I would say that on scale of 1-10 where 10 being the best, I would probably give them a six. The quality of the paving I had a problem with. He did come back and try to fix it. Let's say B-.”

Review by
02/18/2016

“They were very accurate and professional with the design, and they did the job in the time they promised. I was happy with the overall service. They did my retaining wall as well as a painted walkway. They get an A.”

Review by
02/18/2016

“They did a very good job. They did what they said they would do, and they did it in a timely manner and cleaned up. They did some landscaping and some work on a walkway. Everything was fine. They’re an A.”

Review by
02/01/2016

“I was very happy with them. They did great work, and the customer service was very good. They were a little bit more expensive than everybody else was, but overall they were very good. They did a patio. I’d give them an A+; the quality was great.”

Review by
02/01/2016

“It was not great. When they came to pave my driveway, they dug up a Comcast line and cut it. Then they paved my driveway, and I kind of have crumbling holes in my driveway. I wouldn't say the overall quality is all that great. They did asphalt. I think because of the nature of the paving, I wanted stone pavers on the side, and they were the only company who did both things, and I now regret using them. I probably wouldn't use them again, so they're a D.”

Review by
02/01/2016

“Mento was great. They were very nice people, their workers were very clean, and they did a nice job. They did a front walkway and a new front lawn for me. I’d heard about them through word of mouth and their reputation. I’d give them an A because I like their work.”

Review by
02/01/2016

“We were really happy with Mento. They came right away, and the guy was really friendly. The guys who came to do the work were really nice to my kids. They showed them how the job was done, walked us through it when it was all done, and told us how to take care of it going forward and what kinds of products to buy. I had questions, so I called back; they answered, and it was good. They pulled up a driveway and made a little mini yard out of it in the city. They also put down a concrete patio. They get an A.”

Review by
02/01/2016

“They built our house and then rebuilt our brick patio in the back. Everybody—from the owners who came and gave us the quote to the workers who did the work—was at our expectation. Originally, they’d built our house, and they also installed our brick patio. We chose them from price and because they had built our house originally. I’d definitely give them an A.”

Review by
02/01/2016

“They were very good. They were prompt and neat, they cleaned up after themselves, and they did a great job. They did some hardscaping; they put a new driveway in, did a new front sidewalk, and built a side retaining wall adjacent to the driveway. I chose them because they’re a local company in my town. I’d definitely give them an A.”

Review by
02/01/2016

“Mr. Mento listened to me, and then he did it nice. His people did a good job. He did a new asphalt driveway, a stone patio, and shrubs and mulch around the house. I’d give them an A.”

Review by
02/01/2016

“I hired them to put in a paved walkway for me. They came when they were supposed to, and they did a great job. They just did the walkway installation. I’d rate them as an A.”

Review by
01/29/2016

“They put in a patio for us. I would highly recommend them. They’re an A company.”

Review by
01/29/2016

“They are very good. When I asked them to come out to the house and do an estimate, they were able to do it and get it back to me very quickly. The owner was very accommodating. They did landscaping. They’d done some paving before; they’d done a patio. They were referred to me through family. I’d give them an A.”

Review by
01/29/2016

“Mento did a fabulous job. We had an old patio, and the framework started to rot. They ripped the timber out, smoothed the area, and did a beautiful pattern of herringbone patio blocks. They did a walkway as well. They do great work. They get an A.”

Review by
01/29/2016

“Mento was wonderful. They put a patio in the backyard. I was very pleased with everything they did. John Mento was the one who planned everything out for us, and we are very happy we went with them. They’re an A+ company.”

Review by
01/26/2016

“They redid my driveway and sidewalk, and then they cleaned up the front garden and the sides of the yard. They replaced stuff damaged in the storm and put new stuff in. The customer service was just with the guy who set it up. The workers seemed pretty good though. It was an A company. They did a good job.”

Review by
01/26/2016

“They did a fine job. They were widening a driveway and putting in a walkway. They were fine. Their price was much better than other folks I called too. I'd give them like a B+.”

Review by
01/25/2016

“My sales contact, Jason, was excellent. The main piece was a patio with a fire pit, but we also had them do significant grass landscaping with shrubs, new beds, and quite a bit of sod. The job took a couple weeks. I’ve already recommended them to other people. I’d give them an A.”

Review by
01/25/2016

“It was very good. They were here when they said they were going to be here, and they were very professional, cleaned up when they were done, and were very courteous. They finished up the walkway in front of my house. They were recommended by a friend of mine who had recently had her walkway done. They’re an A.”

Review by
01/22/2016

“They put in a walkway from my driveway to my house. They were fine to deal with, and I have no complaints about them whatsoever. I would grade them an A+—excellent, no problem.”

Review by

“They installed a patio. Nothing stood out, I would grade them a B.”

Review by
01/22/2016

“We had our walkway done, and I was very happy with the job they did. I would grade them an A. They did the job while I was at work. The job came out very nice.”

Review by
01/22/2016

“They did a walkway and shrubs. The workers were on time, polite, and did a great job. I really like the walkway they did, so I would give them an A.”

Review by

“It was excellent. They put my walkways in. They were in the neighborhood. I would grade them an A.”

Review by
01/20/2016

“They were very good and easy to work with. They did pavers. I chose them because they were local, and they have a pretty good reputation in the area. I would give them an A grade.”

Review by
01/20/2016

“They followed up. They did the job in like three days, and they were in and out, so it was great. They did a new driveway, some paving in the back, and a new walkway. They did a brand-new, big patio, too. They didn’t leave anything behind or anything like that. I’ve already recommended them to my parents, and they did work there, too. They get an A.”

Review by
01/20/2016

“I’ve had an awful lot of work done by Mento over the years. I’ve had trenches dug, I’ve had a lot of granite put around the front of my house, and I’ve had pavers put in my basement. I would rate their cleanup as the best, and that’s very important to me. They stand behind their reputation, and I’d give them all A’s. They are just the very best. I’ve recommended them to so many people.”

Review by
01/20/2016

“Everything was fine, they did a good job, and I’m very happy. I asked for them to do a job, and I have no complaints. They did some landscaping with timbers, put some pavers down, and did steps, landings, stone, and a lot more. I chose them because I know where they’ve been for 30 years, and my father used them once before with good results. They get an A from me.”

Review by
01/20/2016

“They seemed to do what they were expected to do, and they took my needs into consideration—what I wanted them to do for me. They’ve done more work than I asked. The bigger part of the work was what they did earlier. That was much better. They put in sidewalks and hardscape around the property. They actually did it over three different stages. This last piece was just a repair, where I had a problem with the street, so they just repaired that. It was great. I’d recommend them. I’d give them an A.”

Review by
01/20/2016

“I love them, and I thought they were great. They were very timely and quick, and they got the job done well. They went above and beyond and paved an extra little patch for us so that we could have little walkway in our yard. They’ve paved our driveway, and they had been recommended by somebody else. Their customer service was great. They were quick to respond when I called and came by right away, and the lady at the house was really great. They get an A.”

Review by
01/20/2016

“I haven't gotten things straightened out with them yet. It didn't work out. I need to find out what I need to do on my end before they can come back and take care of their end. They put sod in part of my yard, and they also built me a patio, which I love. The patio came out great, and the sod looked great at the time, but it didn't grow, so it's a mess out there. Apparently, I have a big pine tree out there, and the guy that came and looked at the tree said that the tree would probably have to come down. But it's been here forever, and I would hate to take the whole tree down because of that, so I have left it on hold. I'm waiting to see what I can do on this end. I would like to say a C+ grade.”

Review by
01/20/2016

“We were very satisfied with the work they did for the patio. For the size of the project and the choice that they had available, another competitor offered to talk about the project and never showed up, usual necessity of someone that saw it through. The customer service was good to very good. There had been a piece of the job that needed to be corrected and somebody came back within a day or so to make the corrections that were needed and it was my fiancé that contracted them, and they left her relatively happy with the project and that's the way we gage it. I would grade them an A- to a B.”

Review by
01/20/2016

“The job was done very well, and we are happy with it. The workmanship was very good, and we didn’t have to wait long for the work to be done. It was paver work. I chose them based on their reputation and because they were close by. They’re an A+ company.”

Review by
01/20/2016

“They just did good work and did it like they said they were going to do it. Everything was good. They did pavers for me in two houses—driveways and a back patio. It took two days. Their cleanup area was neat when they were finished. I’d definitely recommend them. I’d give them an A.”

Review by
01/20/2016

“I liked the timing. They were really quick and had a good estimate. They put in a patio. It was 18 feet by 18 feet. The job took one day. The work area was perfectly clean when they finished. I would recommend them highly. I’d give them an A.”
