Compared with others, Jason of Metro-Wide was very knowledgeable when we discussed the situation: a single driveway at the curb widening to double, and sloping down to a double garage. He discussed options and researched drains. His estimate in September 2019 was competitive; however, weather and volume of sales precluded starting before winter. The 2019 estimate was honoured in 2020, and work began as soon as weather and the pandemic permitted.
Joe informed me when the crew would be here, pavement was removed efficiently, gravel laid, with little mess and in a few weeks, the crew returned to construct the concrete drains, lay more gravel and pave the driveway. The crew was pleasant, informed me of next steps, was helpful, worked efficiently and cleaned up the site. I was most impressed with their work and would not hesitate to recommend Metro-Wide for paving.
At the time of construction I discussed requirements for the drain grate specific to the site and my situation with Joe, the crew, and the manufacturer of the drain grates. However the finished grates do not meet these requirements, with the result that water has backed up and overflowed the drain during two rainstorms this past week. I discussed the problem with Joe 10 days ago and am awaiting resolution.
