    Case Study and Testimonial – Worsley

    Finished driveway

    Finished driveway

    Last week we received a slightly unusual testimonial, not from one of our customers but from their neighbour Mrs. Ennis, who was so impressed with the job we had done on the driveway opposite, she wrote us a letter and gave it one of our guys on site:-

    Thank You Letter

    We were installing a pattern imprinted concrete driveway at Park Grove in Worsley, the case study for which has recently been added here. Mrs. Ennis wrote: “I am writing this letter to say how these men have worked so hard in all weathers, without supervision, doing a fantastic job, quietly, when possible. They are a credit to your company. Their names are John, Ben and Greg. I wish you every success”. Also included was a nice card:-

    Thank You Card

    We always love to get positive reviews from customers, so getting them from their neighbours as well is extra special. Many thanks to Mrs. Ennis for taking the time to write this lovely letter.

    Testimonial – Hough Way, Harwood

    We recently received a lovely card of recommendation at TheBestOfBury, from a customer whose pattern imprinted concrete driveway we installed in March at Hough Way in Harwood. Here’s what they had to say:-

    “Your people worked hard and told us what they were doing every step of the way. They respected us and our property and cleaned up everyday. We now have a drive to be proud of. We would strongly recommend this firm. Ray and Val.”

    We love getting testimonials like this, as it’s great to see that our customers appreciate our work. Above and below are before and after photos, so that you can see for yourself the driveway that Ray and Val are so pleased with.

    As you can see from the first photo, the drive was a messy combination of tarmac and flags, with an uneven border edge. The finished driveway has a much cleaner edge, with the main Grand Ashlar pattern complimenting the brick patterned border. The colour used for this installation is Steadman Buff with a chocolate release.

    Case Study – Blueberry Road, Bowdon

    The finished patio and landscaped garden

    The finished patio and landscaped garden

    The Bowdon project was installed in March of this year. We originally posted a time-lapse video of the landscaping that we did, and whilst we were there we also installed pattern imprinted concrete both at the front and rear of the property.

    The size of the project was immense, measuring a vast 300m2 area. The colour varied from the back, which was laid with cream, to the front, which was laid in Classic Grey. The pattern also varied from the front to the back. For the landscaping part of the job, the turf was laid with decorative stone borders. A pond was also built in the corner for the customer, who is an avid fish lover.

    Case Study, Oakwood Drive, Bolton

    Oakwood Drive

    Colour - Steadman Buff, Pattern - Ashlar Slate

    This particular customer approached a former customer for our details after being impressed by our work, which you can see here. The customer wanted a transformation of both the back and the front of their property, with a new pattern imprinted driveway and patio.

    Steps were built to the rear of the property to provide access to a lower garden area, and a half square step was installed providing access to the back door. Both sets of steps were formed using charcoal KL blocks. A wall was built at the front of the property using Marshallite buff block, providing a planting area, and the front wall repointed and given a facelift. The walls were then topped with coping stones. When deciding on the pattern and colour of the pattern imprinted concrete the, customer chose Steadman Buff and the Ashlar Slate pattern.

    Work Begins On Showroom

    When we moved to our new premises in December, we told you about our plans to build a showroom. Work has now begun, and it’s already looking great!

    Inprinting the pattern

    The process has not been dissimilar to the way we install pattern imprinted concrete for our customers. We started by stripping out all the existing storage shelves that were here when we moved in, and then got rid of all other the debris that had accumulated. The floor was then prepared for concrete in the usual way, by digging up and levelling the area, then setting up temporary barriers to contain the concrete and let us know how high to pour it. The concrete was then poured, coloured and the pattern was imprinted, as you can see in the image above.

    Building the interior walls

    Building the interior walls

    Work on the interior walls has just begun (above), and as with all our work, is being done by our own people. We don’t sub-contract, so when the showroom is finished, you will know exactly what our work looks like. When the work is completed you will be able to see and stand on a pattern imprinted concrete floor, just like we install on our driveways, and also view a wide variety of pattern and colour samples. We will announce when the room is ready, so please come and see us then!
