While we could go on about how great we feel our product and service is, perhaps the best testament to the reliability of CastleLite Block is the word of our customers. Scroll down to see what homeowners had to say about their experience working with us.
“I was deciding between replacing my sloped driveway and front porch with stamped concrete but once I spoke with Roger Cone, owner of Castlelite, I knew pavers were the best option. The reason is they manufacture the pavers and stand behind them. They have a showroom so you can choose the right color and type of material. Not like the other guys! You can go visit the reference list to ensure you picked the right color and the sales department will assist you in any way. The crew and the workmanship are incredible. They were always on time and cleaned up each day.I had to have my sprinklers relocated and they were able to take care of it, rather than waiting for another company to come out. Roots from a tree located near the driveway needed to be removed and they did that too! Don’t waste anymore time, go visit the showroom in Danville!!!!”
“If there was a six star rating system, CastleLite would deserve a 9! Starting with initial meeting with Steve (salesman/project advisor); we spent ~two hours of quality time going over our expectations and specs and we couldn’t have been happier with his design insights and recommendations. His genuine human relations skills and knowledge were so outstanding that I would eventually cancel two other bids because his proposal was what I had expected to pay and within our budget for replacing and extending our walkways.
The project started at the promised time. The demolition crew did an outstanding job preparing the site for installation. I can’t say enough good comments about the install crew, who earned and deserve a HUGE shout out. These guys were excellent – very dedicated, hardworking, and skilled craftsmen who applied their know-how to deliver some very intricate results. They exhibited a lot of pride in their work.
Based on my experience, CastleLite = High Quality Products & Services + Integrity”
“After years of neglect, our backyard was sorely in need of some attention. Brandon came out and listened to what we were looking for. He was always friendly, polite, and knowledgeable. Brandon had some great suggestions and was very patient with me, putting my mind at ease when i had questions.
Rick and his crews did a great job demo-ing and preparing our back yard, and a beautiful job laying out the pavers. They even added a few features for our convenience. The product is great quality, the yard looks beautuful. If and when we have additional work done by castlelite block, I’ll be giving Brandon and Castlelite Block a call!”
“We had these guys redo our driveway & curved front walkway (with many steps) recently and I couldn’t be more pleased! There were able to begin the project within a week and completed it in 4 days time. High quality work! and they were took their time to make sure every corner and edge was cut to perfection. I have been getting lots of comments from the neighbors admiring it! They have me as a customer for life! Thanks so much again!! :)”
“We live in Moraga and when the drought began in earnest, we decided to stop watering our backyard. Two years later, our formerly green expansive lawn was a field of weeds, uneven dirt and not a place where our kids or friends wanted to spend time. We finally decided to reclaim our backyard and interviewed a number of different contractors and service providers. We received quotes to lay down concrete, pavers, new grass, new walls etc. and they all sounded much the same. That changed when we met Steve Barsanti at CastleLite, who was frankly a breath of fresh air. He spent several hours with us the first meeting, walking through the property and brainstorming ideas and listening. We were sold, spent another two weeks working through designs and quote and were finally ready to proceed, when, as luck would have it, my job situation become unclear. We paused the project. Steve didn’t complain about the time he had potentially wasted, rather he expressed concern and shared some good advice. Months later, I called Steve up again and we actually added to the scope of the project. Steve and his team were ready to go and after 5 long weeks, our backyard looks amazing. We have new walls, beautiful bespoke pavers around our pool, new sod, new irrigation and a new appreciation for reliable contractors. This experience couldn’t have been better and it was money well spent. We felt cared for throughout the process, Steve remained in close contact throughout and the teams of workers who dealt with the massive demo, wall rebuild, paver installation and lawn installation were all top notch. We love our new backyard and have the utmost confidence that Steve and Castelite can meet your needs.”
“Our backyard project was just completed and far surpassed our expectations. Our experience began with Steve Barsanti (Sales Representative) who arrived promptly for our appt. He spent plenty of time going over our project and offered many helpful suggestions.
The proposal was accepted, scheduled and performed in a timely manner. The craftsmen were exceptional and we especially appreciated their attention to detail. I would not hesitate to recommend CastleLite and will definitely use them for any future projects.”
“Castlelite Block Company was a delight to work with. They completed a very large project for us and it came out beautifully and greatly improved our property. Steve Barsanti was the project manager and was always receptive to our input and patient with our many concerns. We want to thank him as well as his assistants, from the men who performed the initial excavation, to the ones who actually built the walls and laid the pavers. It was a tremendous amount of work and involved a lot of communication and all was coordinated by Steve, who deserves a gourmet dinner!.”
“We first learned about the CastleLite Block pavers at a home show presentation and liked what we saw in the options. Shopping around only reinforced what we liked about CastleLite. Brandon Zollinger from CastleLite Block came out to our house to help us work through the options and come up with a design that thrilled us. The construction team came out, and in very short order, graded the site, set the foundation layers and laid the pavers resulting in a beautiful patio and driveway. It has been a pleasure working with CastleLite Block and their team. Without hesitation, we would do it all again! We are convinced this was the best way to go. We will be enjoying our beautiful new paver patio and driveway for many years to come!”
“A couple years ago, our backyard was in pretty bad shape and needed a makeover. We ended up going with CastleLite Block because they were able to provide us with the best value. Their consultants (we have worked with both Derek and Jay) were easy-going, presented us with some creative ideas, worked with us on our target budget, and were always available to answer questions. The foreman, Ricky, and his crew were courteous, efficient and hard-working. They finished the project within the projected time frame and quality of work was excellent. The entire process felt stress-free and hassle-free.
Fast forward two years later, after the first major storm since the project was completed, we noticed some water pooling around the back sliding door area. I contacted CastleLite and they sent Ricky’s crew back out to assess the situation and make the necessary adjustments. They showed up promptly and completed the job quickly and to my satisfaction.
When choosing a contractor, I want someone with a good reputation and someone who stands behind their work. CastleLite has gone out of their way to make sure I am happy, even after the project is done. I would not hesitate recommending them to others, and will definitely consider them for future projects.”
“We recently completed construction on our new custom home in Westside Danville and elected to use CastleLite Block for our entire hardscape which included over 4,000 square feet of pavers (driveway, side yard, stoops, back yard) as well as retaining walls and a french drain. We could not be happier with the end result.
We dealt with many subcontractors on this project and without a doubt, I have to put CastleLite at the top of the list. They showed up when they said they would and attacked the job with full force. Ricky oversaw the entire installation and his crew worked harder than any other sub we had on the job. If I ever had questions or needed anything, he was available.
The Owner personally came out to review our overall landscape/hardscape plan and came up with much better ideas than our landscape architect did for how to handle the grading and setup in front of our garage and on our side yard. This didn’t cost us a dime but the assistance was priceless. I will forever be grateful for that.
I also love that they have a showroom so you can go touch and feel the products for yourself. I can’t even tell you how many people have complimented us on our driveway…it looks amazing.
I highly recommend this company, they do it right. The bottom line is they are Diamond Certified and you don’t get that designation without going through am exhaustive interview process of hundreds and hundreds of former clients. You will not be disappointed.”
“I have been looking at doing a paver driveway for about one year and had 3 different contractors look at my project. CastleLite Block’s Salesman was Steve and he was very prompt in keeping his appointment (other contractors were not on time) and he had some really good ideas about things I had not even considered. I just felt really comfortable with him and his ideas. I did get a quote from one of the other contractors, but CastleLite Block had the best quote and really liked the color select they offered so that is who I chose.
When the work started, they arrived on time and the crew was very courteous. They were very hard working and did an excellent job. They finished the project within a week, which is what they said would happen.
I would definitely recommend them and I will be using them next year to do my backyard. Great Company!!!”
“We have a large flat yard with mature palms and redwoods and had old concrete around our pool which needed to be ripped out and redone. We worked closely with Castle Lite and Steve Barsanti to envision and design a complete remodel with new pavers, gorgeous hand cut blue stone around the pool, new bbq kitchenette, hot tub, natural stone finishes and all new landscaping. The finished product came out amazing!!! Steve was EXTREMELY detail oriented, totally committed to our project and deadline, and went way out of his way to make the project a complete success. I would give Steve and Castle Lite a recommendation without hesitation. Thanks guys for a job truly well done!”
“I had done quite a bit of research before selecting CastleLite for my project. My project was my driveway. The salesman, Steve, was very professional, informative and helpful with creating our design. The project manager, Jay, checked in periodically throughout the job. Checking that we were completely satisfied with the progress.
But the real artists were the three men that did the work! They started at 8am on Thursday morning. First step : Demo of existing driveway. They completed the project Saturday by 1:30pm. The driveway is spectacular but the real jewel is the front porch.
For me, this was an expensive purchase. I am very happy with my decision to go with CastleLite. No regrets or worries.”
“Our backyard has made an incredible transformation. After spending about 6 months researching options and visiting multiple showrooms for a complete backyard re-landscaping, we came across CastleLite Block LLC and our experience has been nothing but great starting from our first visit to their showroom in Danville. We entered this project with just a basic set of ideas for what we wanted our backyard to look like and Steve Barsanti (Sales Representative) was able to take these ideas and mold them into a design that we were very happy with. The team that came out to perform the demolition of our backyard and set the new pavers, seating area, planting areas, built in lighting and water drip systems, did a fantastic job. Given that our backyard does not have direct access from the street, all materials needed to be walked around the common areas. They were efficient and ensured that nothing was disturbed. At the end of each day the workspace and stored pavers were all organized so that they would not impact our neighbors. Everyone was hard working and we did not have any issues at all. They estimated two weeks for the completion of the job and they delivered on that timeline. A total of about 8,000 pavers and stones were laid for our project, and after the work was complete, there was only 1 that was found that needed to be replaced. Upon finding this stone, the crew came out the next day and took care of it right away. This is clear indication of the quality of the stones and their excellent customer service!!!
We just absolutely love everything about our new backyard – from gorgeous colors of pavers and blocks to the pattern in which the stones are laid out. Our friends and family, along with passing neighbors, all have complimented our backyard. Steve and the team he works with are amazing and we would recommend CastleLite to anyone without any reservations.”
“Wow my experience with CastleLite Block was a fantastic one.
For my husband’s birthday I thought that I would surprise him by taking out our old cracked backyard patio and installing a new paver patio. The sales representative Derek Muller helped me pick out the best color that would complement our home. I like that fact that there were so many choices of colors, styles and patterns to choose from. I also asked that they install drainage from my downspouts to go under the new patio and drain away from the house.
They scheduled the job very quickly and completed the whole job in just 2 days (While my husband was away on business). CastleLite has an expert crew that knows what they were doing and had all the professional tools to do an excellent job.
I was able to surprise my husband who LOVED the new patio! ( My husband is not easy to please) But what is not to love about a stunning patio job.
I can’t thank CastleLite Block enough, what a top notch company!”
“We contacted 4 highly rated contractors to review and hear what they were all about. The first company had a good story but was double the bid of the other 3. We went through the process with the others and felt castlelite pavers in danville, with their own paver factory, were the best choice. Their sales guy Steve arrived on time and walked us through the process. He brought ample samples for our review and provided suggestions and ideas. He also provided a number of jobs their crews completed to help us decide what would work best for us. From demo to excavation to pavers and their artesian skills and design, we couldn’t be happier. The pavers transformed our driveway and walkway into an elegant and lovely setting. Very functional as well. I would highly recommend their danville team.”
“We worked with Steve in the Danville showroom. He provided us with excellent service. We’ve worked with many contractors who after the first meeting we only saw the workers. Steve came by multiple times to help us with changes and additional details we requested. We didn’t have an easy project, sloped driveway and steps. The finished work was beautiful.”
“We had a small driveway replacement complicated by invasive tree roots, drainage problems, and the need to improve car clearance upon entering the drive. CastleLite in Danville developed a beautiful solution and the paver craftsman assigned was skilled and meticulous (Juan). The reason this became 5 stars for us, however, is our sales representative Steve Barsanti. His dedication to customer satisfaction, personal attention to designing solutions, and his accountability in coordinating execution across multiple crews were what made this a great success. He personally validated that the driveway met our needs – testing drainage and clearance – and his responsiveness to us throughout the job was excellent.”
