So you purchased 600 square feet of pavers and were gong to build your own patio? This client, who I am sure could have built a nice patio himself, realized that with his son’s high school graduation party rapidly approaching, he needed to call in reinforcements.
The image below is what I saw when I first visited the site, and we were booked solid with work at the time. I thought there was no way we could deliver a quality product on time. Fortunately, I was wrong. We worked some overtime, picked up where the homeowner left off, and build a beautiful patio with a seat wall and fire pit.
The mud pit shown above was transformed to become a great outdoor space in less than one week, and yes, the graduation party went of without a hitch.
Sometimes even the most capable DIY guy can underestimate the scope of a project and may not know exactly how to correctly build something like a patio, which may seem like a pretty simple undertaking after watching too much HGTV. Admittedly, what we do isn’t rocket science, but it does require the proper knowledge, equipment, materials, tools and skills.
If ever you bite off more than you can chew, give us a call. Or, better yet, call us first.
