Mike did a very nice job rebuilding our walls. He is a very pleasant person and easy to work with and reliable. I would definitely recommend him to anyone needing walls built.

The beauty, craftsmanship, and New England charm of Mike’s stonewalls speaks for themselves. As a homeowner, what was most impressive about our experience with Mike was how pleasant he was to work with. He met with us several times to help us plan our landscaped pool patio area and he was reliable when it came to scheduling and getting the project completed. As a structural engineer, who finds it challenging to hire knowledgeable contractors, I was very impressed with what went into constructing the stone wall built into the side of a hill that also acts as an earth retaining wall. Detail to building concrete footings, the reinforced masonry wall behind the stonewall, and drainage system is what made his work product stand out.

Working with Mike Minto was a great experience. I had a difficult, large new stone wall project in Portsmouth RI. There are a lot of grading issues combined with adding new retaining walls with drainage. I was looking for an old look for my project, and Mike nailed it, solving complex engineering issues with beautiful craftsmanship that delivered exactly what I was looking for.

Not only did Mike manage to turn a difficult project into hundreds of feet of beautiful walls, he was super easy to work with and stayed within a lean budget. I’d encourage anyone looking for high quality, old world craftsmanship to hire Mike.

Mike Minto repaired two stone retaining walls on my property. He is a true professional and completed the jobs in a timely manner. The stonework itself was very well done, and Mike made sure that the new walls matched the existing structures in place on my property. The price was reasonable, the work was very well done, and the job was done quickly and efficiently. Thank you very much Mike Minto!

It was a pleasure hearing your thoughts on how to transform our collapsed rubble into a handsome stone tree ring. You did a splendid and speedy job- we love it!

My family worked with Mike during the spring of 2016, and he built the exact stone wall and walkway we had imagined and envisioned (on time and at budget). While we had a general idea of what we were looking for, Mike was able to fill in the gaps from an aesthetic standpoint, and everything looks perfect. We were so pleased with his work, we introduced him to my brother-in-law who is building a house nearby. We would recommend Mike and his services and plan to work with him again.
