Ray has done stone work for us at 3 different homes over the past 32
His attention to detail and creativity is the hallmark of his work.
The photo at the right shows Ray working on our patio. The original solid concrete patio was unlevel and cracked and had water and debris pooling at spots when it rained. Ray releveled everything and was very meticulous to make sure the water would flow properly.
Over the years, he has built us two stone patios, walkways, several retaining
benches, 2 fireplaces, fire pit and a stone front porch with stone columns.
They are all beautiful pieces of functional artwork. We would definitely recommend Ray Hall to anyone wanting quality stonework at a reasonable

There is a 12' x 20' private courtyard off the back of my loft in Inman
Park. When I first moved in, this courtyard was an uneven slab of cement
that turned into two big puddles each time it rained. I hired a contractor
who was recommended by friends to lay a stone patio and raised flower
bed in the courtyard, and to level the surface in the process. He didn't
have a portfolio because this isn't his full time occupation, but he
had built some stone walls for friends and was much more enthusiastic
and creative that the more experienced contractors I received estimates
from. Unfortunately, several weeks into the job, and hundreds of dollars
later, I realized he was in way over his head and couldn't get the patio
So much for enthusiastic and creative. Mid-way through the job, I had
to stop the work and let him go. I wasted a lot of time, energy and
money through this whole process.
Then my neighbor
recommended Ray Hall. I had come
across Ray's website when I was first looking for contractors,
but assumed he would be too expensive. To my surprise, Ray's
pricing was competitive and his work was above average. He is
the consumate professional and a gem to work with. More than
anything, he's one of those unique contractors that is highly
skilled and has a great eye for design. This job was
as much of an art project for him as it was stonework. Within
a week, Ray had my patio finished and I couldn't be happier.
The stones are beautiful, the design is creative and special,
the water drains beautifully, and I got to know Ray in the process.
I highly recommend Ray if you are considering any stone work,
and am happy to talk with you if you would like more information.
Please contact Ray with your information.
Good luck with your project!
I hope you learn from my experience and hire the best up front.
