You’ve Got Questions — I’ve Got Answers

Q: What exactly does your company do?

A: We specialize in complete Hardscape & Landscape Transformations. We can start with a 3D design of your new space which can include sidewalks, patios, fire pits, landscaping and more. We then build your project from start to finish with our team. There are no subcontractors on any of our projects and because we only do one project at a time, we are on your project every single day until we are completely finished.

Q: Why should I hire you over someone else?

We are extremely passionate about what we do and it shows in the final product! We pride ourselves on our unique designs, our craftsmanship, and the excellent experience we give our clients. Check out our Facebook page to read firsthand from our clients about their experience with us! SINCE 1987!!

Q: How much does a 3D design cost?

A: Our custom 3D design service costs START AT $250, which is deductible from the cost of the project if you decide to move forward. Upon meeting with you to discuss your desires for the new space, I will typically come up with some ideas on the spot and start to formulate a rough idea of what that may cost. Once we are on the same page with budget and scope of the project, I will go ahead and design your project in 3D so there are no questions of what the project will look like when completed.

Which is better - poured concrete or pavers?

Due to our geographical location which produces annual freeze and thaw cycles, there is really no comparison when it comes to the fragility of poured concrete versus the integrity of an interlocking paver system.
Over the decades, the poured concrete industry has attempted to minimize the consequence of freeze/thaw to poured concrete surfaces by adding rebar and pouring in smaller sections leaving separation between larger areas of poured concrete. These methods however are only attempts to minimize and contain the inevitable damage that will occur to a poured concrete surface over time as it goes through the freeze/thaw cycle. It will still crack, it will still crumble. The rebar is meant to hold the crumbling pieces together and the smaller (separated) sections (poured squares) are meant to contain a crack to that section so that it does not continue across the entire surface. But if one section cracks, so will another; just in a different spot.
Repairing poured concrete once it has cracked and crumbled is not easy to do. Typically, it will require replacing entire sections. This is not only costly, but if the original section cracked, so will the replacement.
An Interlocking Paver System on the other hand, when professionally installed by certified installers with the proper materials and adequate compaction equipment, will not settle and will not crack or crumble! It cannot be emphasized enough however the imperativeness of utilizing the proper materials and appropriate size compaction equipment to ensure that the base materials are properly installed.
Professionally installed paver systems will flex with the freeze/thaw cycles, but not so much that it will ever be noticeable! For this reason, you will not have settling, you will not have cracking. You will have a superior system that will last for lifetimes!
In the event there was surface damage, maybe from a heavy object falling on the surface, which damaged a paver; unlock the terrible expense of replacing entire sections of poured concrete, it is a very simple and inexpensive fix to extract the paver and put in another!
From the functionality, to the integrity, to the versatility and aesthetic value, paver systems in every way are superior to poured concrete.
