Job Well Done
Having served 30 years working for private contractors, I have specific expectations when hiring folks to work on our home. While my wife and I examine materials, method and end-product, we value craftsmanship, service and professionalism most highly. PaveStone provided all. From the start, Sergio Giovagnoli calculated a precise estimate along with expert design advice and solutions. He showed remarkable patience as we tormented him with endless indecision over color choices. The crew he sent to remove and replace our front and rear service walks were courteous, efficient, hard- working, always amiable and respectful of their surroundings. The crew's customer "liaison", Diego, kept me informed. He provided numerous solutions to layout problems for my selection. The crew executed those solutions exactly. They were quick and diligent from the start to a thorough clean-up. The result is structurally solid and a beauty to behold. Thank you, PaveStone, for a job well done. (They have really cool baseball hats too!)

Palestine repaired my brick paver patio after the half nearest our home settled several inches. Sergio was very thorough with his assessment of the problem & his estimate. The crew was great -- neat, organized, very skilled. I am very pleased with their work & would not hesitate to recommend them.
paver stone work
A job well done with effort above and beyond the statement of work. Concise estimate, thorough and professional, good follow-up.
Chose this contractor based on reviews and their ranking in Angie's List and 2016 Best Picks Report. Their work and customer service is exceptional. Installed 19' x 14' patio with sea wall. Sales rep Sergio did excellent job offering constructive recommendations for patio, material, and colors. He maintained close contact thru whole process. Crews work was outstanding including clean up of property following completion. Had other competitive estimates a few hundred dollars less but no where near the same level of custom care. You are getting top of the line with Paverstone.
Patio & Fire Pit
Thank you PaveStone for giving us a fun backyard! Our yard was a few squares of cement that comprised the yard- boring, we were ready for a change. Found Pavestone and met with the staff. Sergio was our consultant and designer. From our first visit to the end of construction the project ran smoothly and efficiently.
We were so impressed with the crew that created the patio,seat wall and fire pit. There hard work thru the brutal July heat was amazing, plus the skill and eye to detail in trimming and shaping the bricks and stone to fit the design was perfect.
Thank you Sergio for guiding us through the process. You do Pavestone proud with your comfortable professional style.
We are truly happy with our new backyard. We had our first party with a request for another. That's what we wanted an area to enjoy with family and friends.
Thank you! Pavestone
We feel fortunate to have found your company.

Patio and drainage
We replaced a patio,due to settling and drainage issues. Within the first 5 minutes of meeting with Sergio ,he understood our concerns and came up with a solution, to the problem .We are very happy to have a patio we can once again enjoy. Sergio was a pleasure to work with. He was very knowledgeable about the products he represented and had wonderful design ideas. We appreciated prompt returns to our calls. The crew was very hard working, pleasant, knew their craft, and worked through some extreme temperatures. The yard was cleaned up very nicely at the end of the day. We are very pleased with the patio we now have and would recommend your company to friends and family.
Our Paver project was completed today and so far we are very happy with the work. We are pleased with the service Sergio provided. He was professional and extremely responsive. The crew was experienced, diligent and hard working. I would recommend your company to our friends.
Sergio was great walking us through the process of design and material selection. What really stood out was the work by Damien and his crew. Working on a 90 degree day they did a fantastic job making the patio we had hoped for. And when they finished the work area, driveway and street were cleaner then before they had arrived. Fantastic!
Patio and drainage
Initial contact was with Sergio, who was timely and extremely helpful, he took my thoughts and needs for patio and drainage and came up with an excellent plan that was in budget. He was timely in visits and answering emails and texts. His recommendations for layout and type of paver/pattern were spot on. The work crew were very pleasant, easy to work with and always on time. In fact, they always arrived early and worked continuously with only short break. Diego who set the pavers and determined cuts was excellent, good eye and suggestions. The cuts of pavers for curves and corners was perfect. Everyone has commented on how well done.
I would use Pavestone again and Sergio without question.
Pavestone is the bomb!
We decided we needed a redo of our 18 year old paver patio this year and set about getting several estimates which included the original landscaping company. Sergio Giovagnoli provided our estimate which was not the cheapest, but was in our opinion honest and fair......well below the original contractor. Sergio was very responsive and informative and checked and then rechecked color choices (good thing since I had provided him with the wrong information over the phone). We altered the design so as to include a fire pit and his suggestions in this regard were spot on.
The crew.....and I apologize for not getting their names...were excellent from protecting the lawn and landscaping, to the installation and clean-up. They work like a well oiled machine with everyone clearly knowing what they are supposed to be doing and then doing it. The job was completed as scheduled in 2 days and with the exception of the beautiful and updated new patio you cannot even tell that they were in the yard. They even spread grass seed for Pete's sake around the edges!
Very pleased to recommend Pavestone to all who check out their reviews.
Love my new patio! Workers arrived on time, cleaned up worksite when finished and workmanship is outstanding. Highly recommend.
We are extremely happy with the new patios that Pavestone put in for us. Ricky was great about answering all our questions and did a great job problem solving the tie in to our wooden deck. He always responded promptly. Hector and the crew were very hardworking and took pride in their work. If you are looking to get pavers look no further than Pavestone, you won't be disappointed.
Before beginning this project, we reached out to Pavestone and two other companies about removing our existing patio, designing, and building a new, larger patio, including plantings surrounding it. Ricky, and Pavestone, blew us away at the initial meeting. Ricky spent more time than we expected getting to know us and our thoughts and ideas for the new patio. His initial estimate was very close to the final project proposal cost. He helped us pick out the right stone, based on our house color; the right shape and size, based on the topography of our yard; and even helped pick out the right plantings. We had a specific date by which we wanted the project done and he was able to work within our request and scheduled the work to begin two weeks prior so if there was a delay, it would not impact us. Additionally, we had a hard cap on our budget, and Ricky was great in working with us to determine what we could remove from the project to fit within the budget.
The schedule for the entire project covered one week from the start of the demolition to the project completion and was scheduled out four or five weeks from when we submitted our deposit. They were able to start on the scheduled date and, true to their word, all of the work was complete within one week, expect the final sand that goes between the stone (It was going to rain that day and over the weekend). They came back the following Tuesday, once everything dried out. Ricky did a great job in setting our expectations from the start (e.g. it will be messy, we may not be able to tell if they are on / off track, etc.). On the first day, he and his crew spent a lot of time working with me on the specific layout and flow of the patio (it's curved and they wanted to get the lines exactly right), the walkway, and the stoop to the door. Once that was set, his team was off and running. Ricky and I spoke every day throughout the project and he kept us updated on the status, warned us about impending rain, etc. Each evening, the crew actually cleaned up after themselves. When I say cleaned, I mean made sure all materials were in one place so our kids could still play outside, and they swept the driveway and road where dirt and dust from the work accumulated. Our neighbors even commented on the courtesy of the workers to move equipment out of the way and to wait for the neighbors to drive by before pulling out in the road.
Now that the project is complete, we couldn't be happier. Each day we are finding new details in the work that are amazing. For example, we have wood siding on our house and part of the seating / retaining wall runs up against the house. The crew actually cut the stone so it fits against the house, running at the same angles as the wood siding. We have a couple of neighbors that have already reached out to Pavestone for quotes as well.
So glad we chose Pavestone Brick
After interviewing a number of brick paver companies to design and install our backyard patio, we decided to work with Pavestone Brick for one very important reason: Sergio Giovagnoli. Sergio was the lead on the patio install and worked closely with us to estimate, design and complete the project. His hands-on expertise and valued experience turned our old, tired patio into a work of art. His team was top notch from demo to completion. When considering your next paver project we highly encourage you to work with Pavestone Brick. Ask for Serg when you call. I promise you, you won't be disappointed.
I had an old sinking and crumbling patio. It was barely usable and quite unsafe. From the moment I met Ricky, I had complete confidence in him. He assured me that my patio would be exactly the way I wanted it and he would complete it in 3 days. I was somewhat skeptical but soon realized he was absolutely correct! Damien was the foreman for my job and his expertise was phenomenal. Every bit of my project was done with precision and the team worked together so well. I have never seen anyone actually run with a wheelbarrow filled with huge pieces of concrete! My patio was completed in 3 days and I am absolutely thrilled with the results. Anyone interested in getting a new patio should definitely consider Pavestone. They are experts!!
Our single lane asphalt driveway was in dire need to be replaced. When we saw the image for our house with the pavers and accent bricks that we chose, we knew that we had to go with a new walkway and stoop leading to our front door as well. WOW! We are so happy that we listened to Sergio's advice. The new driveway was extended two feet in width, and the curved walkway is so elegant, it takes your breath away (thank you Damien!). Sergio listened to my requests and instructed the crew supervisor, Damien to make any "changes the lady wants". And they did!
Sergio, Damien, and his crew were terrific. From the initial consultation with Sergio, making a tough decision between two different pavers, and prompt finish of the job, the work was very professional, courteous, and friendly.
I would highly recommend Pavestone Brick Paving to anyone who wants to transform their home into a showcase residence!
From the first visit with Ricky to his final inspection everything was done on time and at budget. No surprises except the final outcome, Beautiful !. Better than we could have imagined. The crew who laid the stone are craftsman to say the least. You could tell they take pride in their work. Don't waste you time looking elsewhere. Pavestone is the way to go.
From the first meeting to the final inspection everything was done on time and to plan. Ricky was great to deal with, very professional. The crew that did the actual work are true craftsman. You could tell they take pride in their work. VERY pleased!
We recently hired Ricky and his team for demolition and construction of a new sidewalk, patio and driveway. This was a big project and a major commitment for us. Pavestone's operation is professional and caring at every level. Given how much we were spending on the project and how important it was that it turned out exactly how we envisioned it, we expected nothing but the best and we spent a lot of time searching for the best contractor to meet our needs and do the job at a fair price. Ricky and Pavestone delivered 100%! We could not be happier with how this turned out , from the first visit from Ricky, to the planning, the fair pricing, the scheduling, the patience Ricky showed as we changed our minds about things almost weekly, the friendly and skilled crew that worked extremely hard for 6 days to complete the entire operation much faster than we could have ever expected, to the final, beautiful and in several places, artistic results. We are thrilled. Congrats to you Ricky, and to Pavestone. This is a business to be proud of. - Mark and Margie
Segio was a pleasure to work with and extremely knowledgeable and honorable. The team did an amazing job installing my backyard patio and adding a parking pad to my driveway. I would highly recommend Pavestone to anyone looking to do a patio or driveway.
Paverstone delivers on promises made to their customers. Exceptional work, kind & courtesy employees with top notch work ethics. I'd recommend Paverstone as the top go to company for pavers!!! My driveway pavers & entry pavers are a magnificent work of art.
Your firm recently removed our large wood deck and replaced it with a stone patio. We could not be happier with the end results. Our rep., Sergio, is very knowledgeable and passionate about his work and this translated into a great finished product. The crew of Beto, Hector, Roman, and Rudy (I apologize if I forgot anyone) were very helpful in explaining any of our concerns as the project progressed. In fact, they made a change on their own to make a better placement for our gas grill due to the gas line hose length. Bottom line is thank you guys for your professionalism and a job well done. Joan & Bill
Great Service, Product and People
The team at Pavestone Brick Paving, lead by Mario Sette are amazing. I wasted a lot of time shopping around, when I knew it all along, they were the right choice. Luckily, I did select them and everything was perfect. From the initial interaction with Mario in my house, to exceeding expectation on timing of the project, and the professionalism of the team that installed our patio. Now on to the patio... just amazing. Everyday Linnea and I look out and we are so very pleased with the quality of the work and the design that the pavestone team did.
Don't waste time shopping around, this team is AMAZING! The price, quality and value was exceptional.
Thank you Mario & Team,
Jeff & Linnea Pinc
New Driveway, New Patio
They just completed a brand new driveway, walkway, and patio complete with stoops.
We could not be happier. Their work crews were amazing. Everything was top drawer, they committed to a 6 days time frame and they stuck to it, despite being forced to work around a lot of rain delays.
Many of our neighbors have praised the new look and we hope that leads to more jobs for Pavestone. A wonderful top notch operation.
Very Happy Customers!
Thank you to folks at Pavestone for our fabulous, new patio! We really appreciate all of your expertise in helping to pick out the stone that would look the best, along with a functional design that will be great for entertaining. The work was done quickly, efficiently and turned out beautifully! From start to finish, Pavestone proved to be an excellent choice for our new patio and we'll be recommending you to anyone who inquires.
Love the Patio!
I want to thank Ricky and team for our back patio. Having never contracted a hardscaping project before, and going through several walkthroughs and estimates with other contractors and landscapers, Ricky stood out to me as he made sure I understood the process and the materials. Everything he promised on, he and his delivered.
Our project was unfortunately delayed just a few days due to a backlog resulting from earlier weather, but Ricky proactively notified me well in advance, and did so consistently until we were locked in. For someone who hates not hearing anything, this was well appreciated.
We couldn't of had a better experience, and are completely satisfied with the result. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Pavestone to friends and family, and we're extremely excited to entertain them this summer.
Job Well Done!!!!!!
I could not be happier with the maintenance and repair work
that Pavestone has done for me. The curb appeal their work
gave my home is awesome. It never looked better. Would
recommend them to anyone. I will be a repeat customer when
the time comes.
Nice work. Nice workers.
Pavestone created a beautiful front patio and stoop at our home in Schaumburg. Ricky spent the time necessary to make certain I knew the materials and process. The workers knocked out the project in a day and a half. They were on time both days and work hard to get the job done. I highly recommend Pavestone!
Pavestone did an excellent job. Crew was professional and precise. Cleaned up. Made sure I was happy with the work. Highly recommended
My husband and I wanted to sincerely thank Ricky and Pavestone for our beautiful new patio. After doing our homework and checking with several bricking companies (we did not even bother with landscapers) we were absolutely sold on Pavestone. Ricky was very welcoming, accommodating and informative from day one. We came in with a reasonable budget and Ricky was more than able to accommodate us with a lovely stone and accent colors that would match our home. He came out on several occasions to our home to work out a design, show us several stone ideas and work with a step design. Very professional and always available.
We would also like to commend the crew that came out here, Diego and work crew. They worked extremely hard and did such a gorgeous and professional job. We had an entire patio and step completed in two full days! Diego and his team were very informative and would communicate with us throughout the entire process. They would pause to double check before going on to the next step to make sure we were satisfied with the appearance of the project at each portion of the process. The best part was our shared lunches! On day one my husband grilled for Diego and his team. On day two Diego surprised us with a fantastic lunch that we all shared together!
We really felt very satisfied and comfortable with Pavestone, Ricky and Diego. Overall, we highly recommend this company over several local paving companies. They are the right price, offer quality products and exceptional paving work. We will certainly use them again!
Our front walkway and entryway were cracking and in bad shape - we called several contractors, but they never got back to us with an estimate. When we called PaveStone we spoke with Mario, he came out the next day and we received the estimate immediately after our meeting. Due to the early November cold, the job had to be postponed until this Spring. Mario kept us up-to-date and notified us with the start date this Spring, we did not have to call him to find out when they would begin the work. Once the work began, the crew arrived exactly as promised, kept us informed of the progress and upon completion the job is absolutely beautiful We are so happy with the outcome. The crew was a very hard working group of guys.
In addition to the wonderful job done, we needed to have our posts replaced and Mario went out of his way to contact our contractor to make sure that the old posts were secured safely until the new posts are installed.
We highly recommend PaveStone Bricck Builders - they are a quality company all the way from the initial estimate process to the actual job completion. We would definitely use their services again. Great company, great job!!
Highland Park Patio
We had a sinking and cracking concrete patio desperately in need of replacement. We obtained price quotes from a number of contractors and landscapers. Pavestone came to us through references we respected. I spoke to Mario Sette Jr. personally and he handled the project from estimate to design to project commencement. Mario was in contact with us throughout the process and brought us to his supplier to make sure we had the pavers we wanted. His crew was professional, clean, polite and quick. They make this hard work look so easy.
We LOVE our new patio and are looking forward to years of outdoor entertainment. As Mario promised - our neighbors are all jealous! We couldn't be happier and are already recommending Pavestone Brick Paving to everyone.
Thanks so much for such timely and excellent service. You came, you saw ,you conquered! Sergio has a very charming charisma in the sales field. I enjoyed working with him on my albeit small project.
We would absolutely "hands down" recommend Pave Stone. Ricky bidded for the job of constructing a patio and fire pit at our home. From start to finish his communication, professionalism, and follow through were top notch. The job was well planned and executed. His crew, lead by Damian, took pride in their work (and it is not easy work!) Looking forward to the summer on our beautiful new patio. Thanks Pave Stone!
From the first call I made to after installation, this was by far the best experience we've ever had with any contractor! To say we are happy with the patio would be an understatement. It's gorgeous and better than we ever expected it to be!! While we had a smaller job we were treated like a big customer! Sergio was fantastic and walked us through the whole process and was fantastic at managing expectations and timing. While Pavestone may not be the least expensive (nor the most expensive), they are truly worth every penny. We had one brick that needed to be replaced and we were not put off because of the small fix. The crew was professional, precise and quick. Our neighbors are envious and all I can say is that we will recommend Pavestone to anyone and we will use them again if we ever have another need to!! Best wishes for much continued success!!!
I called "3" brick businesses, the first two not calling back and then not coming out for an estimate. When I called Pavestone someone returned my call that day and set up an estimate visit. The gentleman was professional, on time, informative and very pleasant. We scheduled this "large repair". They came as scheduled and the workers went above and beyond my expectations. The entire experience was truly MOST EXCELLENT! I highly recommend them.
Quality product and reasonable price.original and follow up work performed by knowledgeable and professionable personnel.Highly reccommed.
Happy in Hawthorn Woods
We recently had an area of our yard re-landscaped in order to prevent water from a neighboring hill entering our basement. An older brick patio area was removed along with dirt, mulch and plantings. A new brick patio, 1" rock and a 1 foot retention wall (to divert rain) was built by Sergio's team of 4-5 guys. It really adds an elegance to our house, yet serves the major purpose of preventing flooding. Everyone was professional, articulate and prompt in setting up the work dates and in getting the work done. They did a great job of cleaning up afterwards. The neighbors are all raving. We will definitely hire PaveStone in the spring to freshen the look of existing brickwork we have in our yard.
The street in front of our house was rebuilt this fall. As a result of that work our whole brick apron had to be removed and re-graded to match the new gutters and sidewalk replacements. Since our apron work couldn't be done until the street work was completed - and the schedule we got from the village was more like "something in the next few weeks/months", Sergio went out of his way to keep us penciled in and moved along on the schedule as we kept him informed of the street progress so we wouldn't have to live without access to our driveway for any length of time.
When the day came for the work Sergio was here to introduce us to the crew and go over any last minute details. The crew got right to work and did an excellent job of redoing our driveway apron - looks fantastic!
LOVE my new pavers
My new pavers are the nicest looking pavers I've ever seen. Pavestone did an amazing job laying them out! And they were really helpful with all the details leading up to the installation. Thanks Pavestone!
Say Do Company
Ricky quoted the job and Pavestone delivered on every aspect that Ricky quoted with no hassles. Having the job run exactly as quoted with no surprises is the hallmark of a great, experienced company. The crew took precautions to make sure that their work would not damage any existing landscape, and cleaned up the job site that it was almost impossible to realize the work had just been completed.
Excellent Service...Quality Work
Ricky and his crew led by Damien are real pros. From Day 1. Ricky was helpful, courteous, prompt, and really knows his stuff. Damien and his guys did a wonderful job on our patio and walkway. Pavestone delivers...I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone looking for quality work at a reasonable price.
We decided to use PaveStone to do are walkways and steps in the front and back of the house. We contacted Pavestone and made contact with Sergio Giovagnoli. Sergio did an excellent job of coming to the house and sitting down with us. He gave us a very good understanding of what would take place. When asked he gave us his opinion. We were given an estimate of the work in a reasonable amount of time. Sergio set up a meeting so that we could see the pavers. Sergio answered all are questions and concerns. The day of the job Sergio was there to introduce us to Damien. Damien was the lead on the job and also was outstanding. He took his time to lay out the pavers for us to check before he started lying them. In spite of bad weather they completed the job on time. We were very pleased with Sergio and Damien and his team.
Five Stars - New Brick Walkway!
We hired PaveStone to install a red clay brick front walkway, and we're very happy with the result. From the first meeting Ricky was informative and professional. The crew was on-time, extremely well-organized, and polite. I observed most of the installation and it is clear that these craftsmen take a lot of pride in their work product. Our standards are high, and they were exceeded. These guys are experts. I will definitely use them again.
Our patio and walkway were done wonderfully and the workmen even spent extra time in designing a little extra on our stairs. All work was done in a timely fashion just as promised.
We would highly recommend Pavestone again.
Kudos to Sergio and Pavestone! Our walkway, porch, retaining wall, and planter box/wall is absolutely beautiful! From day one, Sergio was so professional, helpful, and available! He was always on time, gave great insight, and was a pleasure to work with. Sergio's team was clean and courteous of us and our neighbors. The curb appeal of our house has transformed!! Can't wait to have them back to do our back patio! After receiving 8 different estimates from 8 different representatives, Sergio was above and beyond what I had hoped for. Thank you to you and your team!
Backyard Transformation !
We would definitely hire pavestone again. They did all we asked and more. Our patio,walkway, and fire pit have transformed the yard into a fantastic outdoor living space. Ricky gave us a fair price, his crew did great work and finished the job in the time frame quoted.
Ricky and the Pavestone team did a superb job. I would highly recommend Pavestone Brick Paving Inc. for any type of hardscaping project. The team transformed our patio into a beautiful outdoor living area. Ricky guided us throughout the entire design and construction process. During installation the crew was very efficient especially paying close attention to important details. For high quality craftsmanship, professionalism and affordable prices look no further call Ricky at Pavestone.
Beautiful Patio, fire pit and sidewalk
This project was long overdue and we are absolutely thrilled with the result. We had an old and fairly large concrete patio removed and replaced with an equally spacious patio and firepit in a combination of Bergerac and Mega Arbel. I first met with Mario in March and I cannot believe our project was done by the first week in May. He was really helpful in guiding me through the process of selecting materials and layout. His crew started right on time and finished within a week. They were very professional, do beautiful work, and left the job site clean every night. This week we expect to have our Pergola installed (by an equally professional contractor referred to us by Pavestone) and are looking forward to enjoying this new space. We are so confident in their work that we plan to hire Pavestone to install a grill station for us next summer. Could not be happier.
Fantastic Patio and Fire Pit
I wanted to write this review to express how happy and satisfied I am with the patio that Rick and his crew completed at my home. We had about a 1000 sq foot patio with fire pit completed on time in the exact time frame that I was given. I have to give a significant amount of credit to Ricky and his team for the amount of detail that was put in the project. We have a deck around our pool and they were able to build the patio perfectly around the existing structure which was not easy work. The crew cleaned everything every day before they left, and I am tremendously happy with the entire process. I strongly recommend PaveStone for any future projects, and I will be sure to recommend them to others!! Keep up the great work guys!!
Backyard patio and walk
Ricky and the PaveStone team did an amazing job. They started with a design we came up with, made very helpful suggestions, and then did the work better than we ever could have hoped. They were on the job just when they promised, were friendly and responsive throughout the actual work, and left us with a spectacularly finished space. What had been an eyesore is now a beautiful addition to our home. We could not be more pleased.
Rick and his crew did a super job. From the initial visit to the consult to the final installation everything went smoothly without a hitch. He said it would be done in three days and it was finished on time and beautiful. Would definitely recommend his paving company.
I am writing this review on behalf of Pavestone Brickpaving: I began my project approximately 2 years ago with the intent to re-do my driveway and walkway with unilock stone. I began the process of getting estimates and I can say without any hesitation or reservation that Pavestone Brickpaving's professionalism, quality, and integrity was second to none. I believe that doing business with a company that truly stands behind their product seems rare these days, but with Pavestone Brickpaving-- they not only stood behind their product, but also worked with me on design and were accomodating throughout the entire process. Shortly after this experience, my wife and I were considering a new patio with a firepit, at which point we contacted Pavestone Brickpaving and from conception to completion-- the process was smooth. I can state without any hesitation that I give Pavestone Brickpaving my highest recommendation as a consumer and I would highly recommend them to any perspective customer! I would also be more than happy to receive any inquiries at email@example.com
