Scott Arboretum of Swarthmore College
- "Dear George,
Frank and I thank you for the wonderful work at our house.
We greatly appreciate your craftsmanship and the high standard of perfection you demonstrated in every task you performed.
Most of the time you went beyond our expectations."
- "I would just like to thank George and his fine crew on the recent work they did in installing a French Drain in my basement. Although the work required breaking up a concrete floor they sheilded the room off and didn't allow any dust to enter the basement. Their work was excellent and timely and their prices are competitive. Thanks for another job well done."
Followup from the next year:
"Just wanted to let you know your work on our basement was great. With all that rain from Hurricane Sandy not one drop entered the sump pump! Please feel free to use us as a reference!!"

"This is just a quick note to thank you for taking care of the masonry repair needed on my home. Your kind advice, timely response, and thorough effort helped to revitalize the decaying stonework on my house. I also appreciated your willingness and patience in answering all of my questions about the best approach for this project. When time and budget permit, I look forward to having you work on my front walkway!"
"George has worked with me, off and on, as a stone mason for about 20 years now. He is capable of much more than the run of the mill. His global knowledge of every aspect of masonry, from modern to ancient, makes him my first choice for almost any stonework project. You will find that George relishes a challenge and savors the process of taking earthen stones and working them to their highest form."
"While many masons' styles are set and hard as granite, George is capable of listening, understanding, and shaping his style to match the directives and sometimes whims that any given job may present. If you have little experience working with this trade, I will tell you that, this is a very rare trait amongst his peers."
President, Creative Dwellings, Inc.
"Mr. George Galli was first recommended to me by Galantino Supply as a top mason in the Swarthmore area. This was in 1998 when I was starting a landscape design business and in need of good sub-contractors. After working with George on my project; a large wet-laid flagstone patio in Swarthmore, I found him to be talented, knowledgeable, hard-working and personable."
"Since our first project together, George has implemented a variety of my design projects proving his versatility as a mason and his artistic nature. He has beautifully constructed a variety of patios, walls and walkways with a keen attention to detail. In addition to trusting his work, it is always pleasurable to work with George. His strong work ethic and sense of humor combine to bring success to all his work and have helped our 8-year working relationship to flourish."

Mr. George Galli,
Re: 23rd and St. Philadelphia PA
James Place Garden Project,
"I want to thank you for the excellent work you did on the aforementioned project. Your careful consideration of dimension and scale helped deter a lot of inherent problems with the design. I was also impressed, as I always am, with your particular attnetion to detail. We were dealing with such a small space that any error would have been quite noticable. However, it is appartent that every stone was deliberately set not to stand out from its space."
"You have proven again to be an asset to me and my customers. Your consistent clarification with the architect and the owner made 1) my job easier to handle the project, and 2) gave the architect a sence of comfort when faced with difficult field adjustments and corrections."
"I look forward to our next project together. Please don’t hesitate to use me as a referral or have your customers contact me."
