We used Michael Padilla / Highland Stone (aka Venus Design) to install granite in the kitchen and 2 bathrooms…Must be a different guy than discussed in this forum because he was very professional, his prices were competitive and he did exactly what he said he would do. He went out of his way to make certain we were happy with our job. He is working at my Mom’s house next…I would absolutely recommend Highland Stone..

This was our first granite install. We had Michael do our kitchen earlier this year and whoa what a mess, sink was cut wrong, orange lines embedded in the granite from fabrication and the destruction that was done to our walls, cabinets, and floors was depressing to say the least.
He's lazy, a liar, a crook and honestly I'm shocked he hasn't been assaulted by a property owner yet.

If you're thinking of hiring Michael Padilla (Venus Designs/Highland Stone) or Marc Padilla then you shouldn't own a home.

After Review of our post I realized I miss stated our savings as "thousands" and it should have read "Hundreds". The bottom line is that Michael was very competitive, especially given the fact that he came to the mountains to install them. We couldn't be happier!

LIES,LIES and MORE LIES!!! Michael Padilla/ Highland Stone takes money and does not deliver. NOW 2014 and it seems he keeps on doing what he does best- RIP PEOPLE OFF!!!! People like this should not be allowed to do business. Not only did he take our money and not do the job, but when approached called me names and threatened me. Something needs to be done with this guy! DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH THIS GUY!!! HE IS DISHONEST, RUDE AND A LOSER!
