THE ADVANTAGES OF HIRING A CONCRETE PAVER CONTRACTOR
Here in the California bay area, we’re blessed with plenty of beautiful weather. Having an elegant outdoor entertainment area is an incredible way to create an inviting atmosphere for your family and friends to come and enjoy the nice weather. Today, there are countless TV shows dedicated to the joy of “doing it yourself.” While many home projects are perfect if you have a DIY mentality, creating a landscape using concrete pavers isn’t one of them!
Working with a reputable contractor to design and create your outdoor living space is the right choice. They can help you to create a design that matches your creative vision and help you to choose the perfect concrete pavers to fit your needs and budget. Concrete paver professionals will provide you with a project cost before you begin work, and give you a final result that will bring you enjoyment for years, and be the envy of your friends.
If you’re still not convinced, here are five reasons why hiring a landscape professional for your concrete paver installation is the right choice.
FIVE KEY REASONS TO HAVE YOUR CONCRETE PAVERS PROFESSIONALLY INSTALLED
Working with a landscape professional is always the best choice for a complicated project like installing concrete pavers. While DIY might seem like a good idea, it can really cost. Here are five key reasons you should hire a professional for your outdoor project.
CREATING YOUR DESIGN
Envisioning your final result is just a small step in the process. Do you have the skills to design and sketch of your vision correctly? What about ordering materials and making sure that your patio idea is even feasible or affordable? Any mistakes you make during the design process can leave you facing costs that are much higher than you anticipated. A professional will provide you with an accurate drawing of your creative vision, a list of materials needed, and a specific cost for installation along with a timeline.
KEEPING YOUR PROJECT ON BUDGET
A landscape professional will not only create your design and budget; they will make sure that your project stays on track. They understand the time and materials necessary to produce the final product, how much sand, you’ll need, the proper size and quantity of materials and the labor necessary to finish your project on time and on budget.
PROPER PREPARATION, PROPER TOOLS
Adequate preparation of the site is a crucial element to the long-term stability of your patio. A professional will have the knowledge and expertise to get the job done right the first time. Preparation is a complicated process. Ninety-percent of the job is site preparation that includes planning and design, excavation, installation of a base layer, compacting that layer, proper installation of geothermal textile to prevent weed growth, installation of edge restraints, setting the sand, compacting and leveling, installing the pavers, and finishing the surface. If any one element of the preparation is done incorrectly, you will have problems with your patio down the road. A professional will have the tools necessary to do the job, the expertise to provide a high-quality finished product and will stand behind their work if there ever is a problem.
THEY WILL SAVE YOU TIME
If you’ve never installed concrete pavers before there is a steep learning curve involved. If you’re only working on the weekends, it could literally take weeks or even months before you can relax and enjoy your new outdoor space. Working with a professional contractor ensures that your project is handled promptly and professionally. From the design to installation, your contractor will provide you with a schedule for your project that they will stick to. They have the experience, expertise and a team of trained installers working on your project to get it done quickly, efficiently and on budget!
THEY ONLY USE A HIGH-QUALITY CONCRETE PAVER AND MATERIALS
While those inexpensive pavers at your local big box store may look pretty good, they’re not the same level of materials that are used by a landscape professional. Professional paving contractors know how and where to source the highest-quality materials for your project at an affordable price. Their processes and sources which they have developed over years in business allow them to evaluate any type of surface, formulate a plan and provide the perfect product to meet your needs.
If you want the best, hiring a professional is the only way to go. You’ll receive the highest quality workmanship, the best materials, a professional design and proper installation every time.
