Customer Issue: Mr. Itoh’s old summer property hadn’t been used in many years, and the driveway needed repaving.
Our Solution: The driveway wasn’t a complete loss, but parts of it needed replacement rather than just patching. We broke off the most damaged sections and rebuilt them from the gravel upward, while other areas only needed a few pavers smoothed or replaced. After making sure the old and new sections were all level, we filled in the cracks with polymorphic sand and smoothed it all down.
Paver Patio Installation
Customer Issue: Mr. McLaren bought a new house, and thought the back door could use something more to open too. In the end, he decided to upgrade it with a paved backyard patio.
Our Solution: The back door was about an inch and a half above ground level, so a shallow foundation with medium thickness pavers seemed best. The customer preferred light colors, so we went with a white-beige tile paver set. The ground was hard, which made the initial digging harder, but it also made it easier to level the gravel and sand before we laid the pavers and mortar on top. Then, we build a wood and aluminum fence around much of the new back porch.
Customer Issue: The Underhiltds had a small picnic table in the middle of their garden. They decided to upgrade it into a raised and covered gazebo.
Our Solution: Building the gazebo that the customer wanted meant removing the picnic table and building over the existing paved island. We dug out around the island and removed it from below. Then, we built a circular cinderblock wall around our pit, filled it with sand and gravel, and then covered it in tile pavers. We planted four support columns into the mound before flooring it and then built a wood and shingle roof on top. The last step was adding the stairs and replacing the seats and table.
