I recently had curbs and paving done by Stoneridge and am very pleased with the results. While driving in Brampton I saw some curbs at a random house and stopped to ask the owner who did them. He recommended Stoneridge.
When M. came to give me the estimate, I had a very vague idea of what I wanted - beveled curbs, new stairs, and a concrete pad. His design was exactly what I wanted.
S. arrived on the excavation day and in no time my old driveway was gone and the area excavated for the curbs. On framing day I was not at home, but I did receive a call from Sal that the design would be a bit different due to the need for a second step. Not a problem, because I knew I was in expert hands. I just want to add that I was pleased they excavated deeply.
Concrete pouring day I was out of town - although I like to be present it was just not possible that day. Again I was not concerned because I knew I was in good hands with Stone Ridge.
The curbs, stairs and pad were better than I anticipated. Paving day came and S. and his crew came, paved, and everything was beautifully levelled off. I want to add that there was nothing to clean up after. Driveway looked great.
I was out of town the day after and just got back. Speaking with a neighbour this morning she said at least 20 cars stopped yesterday to take a look. No sooner had she said this, I was taking down the construction tape and Stoneridge sign when a guy stopped his car and asked if he could take a look. This afternoon I was going out, opened the garage door, and there was a man from a competing company - he was doing a job around the corner - he asked me who did the driveway, and even he commented that they did a very good job.
The concrete work was challenging this year because several neighbours tried to get together to get the job done. I decided to go rogue and am very glad I did. A job like this requires professionals who know what they are doing. Joe Concrete Pourer working out of the back of his pickup truck is not going to do a good job. Two very old men with a pick and shovel trying to dig up sod cannot possibly dig down deep enough. Pouring concrete in the rain will not get you a good result. I didn't know it until I saw my neighbours' work but apparently there are different grades of concrete - Stoneridge uses a very high grade. Stoneridge framers are able to frame in a straight line.
Ok so I guess I have written my 30 words - a little lengthy perhaps but because I have seen the poor quality work done by the people with little experience, I do want homeowners to realize what a good job they did for me and that they are truly professionals
