Quakertown, PA Chris and I want you to know how happy we are with the stone work and repointing that you and your team completed for us....it is outstanding!

Pheonixville, PA The wall is beautiful. I like to touch it. Thank you all for a job well done. As you know for me, there's nothing like the deGruchy craftsmen at work. I have only one negative comment: ''When my nephew Bill Dibble asked them to move the wall back 6 inches, they refused! I wonder why? It seems like a resonable request to me!'' Best Wishes Nancy
Philadelphia, PA Dealing with deGruchy Masonry was a very pleasant experience for us. We are satisfied with the work done. Not only was deGruchy knowledgeable in the technical aspects of his profession and materials used, but he also took the time to help us better understand our building needs.
Coopersburg, PA They did a very professional job of reconstructing our stone steps.
Emmaus, PA Our masons, primarily Charlie and Mike, were very trustworthy and hard working. They were concerned about containing the mess which could easily have been terrible, as we had work done inside and out. Our end result is beautiful. The cars continue to slow down and look; some even stop to copy the name deGruchy off the sign in our yard. Gail Phillips
Quakertown, PA We couldn't be more pleased with your staff and quality of work. Jeff Edelman is extremely courteous and personable.
Danielsville, PA Dear Andy, Once again, Holly and I would like to thank you and your men for the terrific job you did in our attic stone wall and stone walkway projects. Everyone who has seen your stonework has raved about the level of craftsmanship that went into the stoneworking and pointing - with some of our ''old timer'' neighbors and friends observing that they thought the art of stone pointing a ''lost art'' until they saw our attic wall!
Whitehall, PA From our first meeting with you, through the last details being settled, our experience has been pleasurable. When we phoned you with questions, our calls were returned promptly. When you gave us a date that you would be here to work, you were here. Jeff, Charlie, Mike and Jim were always helpful, always very hardworking and we feel have done n excellent job. The farmhouse looks absolutely great! We're extremely pleased with our end result and with everything it took to get there! Sandra Greener
Wayne, PA Well run, customer oriented, hard-working, knowledgeable, organized and very pleasant crew who did an excellent job restoring and rebuilding a bulging stone wall and repointing my front porch.
Quakertown, PA Dear Andy, This is an extremely belated thank you for stabilizing the chimney on the train station. For about 6 months we were extremely concerned about the high winds blowing out the one corner stone causing the top plate to fall off and go thru the roof. Some time in the near future we would like to meet with you to discuss some of the other masonry problems with the station. Again thank you for being concerned about saving a piece of Quakertown history. Sincerely, Dick Mindler President
Riegelsville, PA YOU WERE PROFESSIONAL AND PLEASANT TO WORK WITH, AND WE APPRECIATED YOUR FLEXIBILITY. THANKS.

Everyone from Andy to the helpers were polite and a pleasure to have around my project site and home. There is enough room on paper, but I would gladly talk to prospective customers of deGruchy.
