Asphalt Driveway Paving with Drainage
“Our house driveway was already 20+ years old and it was about time to get it replaced. I hired Massad & Sons for my driveway paving project and my choice couldn’t have been better. Francis worked with me from day one to show step by step how he will be removing my old driveway, grading it and then installing with the new asphalt pavement. The challenge was grading for water to flow properly away from the house. He installed drainage pipes on the side of the driveway which drained water into the street. In addition, the driveway edges were installed with decorative stones. I would recommend others to Massad & Son for their quality work and to answer all the client needs.”
Retaining Wall Project
“We hired Francis and his team to work on an extensive project in our backyard. The project involved digging up a slope, expanding the flat surface in our backyard and building of 4-5 feet high and 50 feet long retaining wall. In addition, Francis and his team installed a drainage system along the length of the retaining wall that takes the water from the slope/hill into a larger drainage system along the perimeter of the property.
This was a particular difficult task to complete because the weather at the time did not collaborate and, in our hill there are natural spring water sources that needed to be re-directed to appropriate drainage. They fixed permanently a long term problem with the existing drainage system by connecting the end of draining pipe to the city water collection. They also cleaned up the hilly area behind the retaining wall from weeds and wild plants. The slope was then planted with decorative shrubs and trees. Upon completion of retaining wall and planting/mulching the hilly area behind the retaining wall, they restored and re-seeded the lawn and disturbed areas. They re-connected and expanded the existing sprinkler system to cover the entire newly extended backyard.
In addition to this major project, we hired Francis and his team to re-pave our 10 year old driveway. Francis and his team did an excellent job, were punctual and kept us appraised along the way on the progress and issues of the day. We are very happy with the quality of their work and the final outcome of the project.“

“My wife and I justed wanted to thank you for the installation of our patio, stonewall, and playground area. We have received many compliments already!
We are looking forward to many hours of enjoyment spent outside. You transformed our wasted space in the backyard into the envy of the neighborhood.
Your company did a great job! Our neighbors were impressed with the clean up process too.”

“We had Massad and Sons redo a driveway for us this year and they did an amazing job. Fran was professional, on time, and his price was very responsible. The team was clean and professional at all times as well. I would highly recommend them.“
“Fran and his crew put in a new driveway for us in July 2021. He and his crew were very professional and did an EXCELLENT job explaining the process along the way. He expressed the importance of how to move the vehicle before turning the wheels in our driveway for the first year due to the oil in in asphalt. His crew was very detailed orientated and kept the job site very clean. He answered all of my questions thoroughly and respectfully. He also put in a new concrete walkway for us and stairs. I would HIGHLY recommend Fran and his crew. We are actually scheduled to have Fran do more work on our property Aug 2022.”
Retaining Walls, Stairway & Walkway
“Fran Massad’s decades of experience and creativity are a great combination. His crew is skilled, friendly, and hardworking. We had two retaining walls and a stairway rebuilt, and he also terraced a long, sloping walkway by adding three sets of steps. We found Fran to be responsive, dependable, efficient, and timely. He rightly takes pride in his work, which is excellent, and is a man of his word. Highly recommend.“
Driveway & Retaining Wall
“Fran came out to quote us on paving a driveway, rebuilding a rotting wooden retaining wall and staircase, and regrading two areas of our yard. We decided to work with Fran because his quote was competitive, and he did a great job explaining the best way to tackle the project. Given the scope of work, Fran was able to work with us on completing the project in three phases over two years. Each time Fran came and his team came out to do the work they were prompt, efficient, and did great work. Overall, we could not be happier with the work Fran and his team completed, and would recommend his services to any potential clients.”
