    Cheshire Court – Testimonial

    This project was a blast from the past. Installed in 2010, we were installing a pattern imprinted concrete driveway on the same street in May 2012. We called round to see if our customer was enjoying their pattern imprinted driveway two years on and they were delighted to see us, inviting us to take some pictures of the driveway that they are rightfully proud of. Incidentally the project on the same street was a property we had previously installed a driveway for and had returned to install a patio, proving that customer care pays off.

    The driveway was installed using Dove Grey colour hardener, Charcoal release agent and Ashlar Slate pattern. The driveway was finished by applying an acid stain to the borders to create definition and effectively a frame for the pattern imprinted concrete artwork within.

    We cannot take all the credit for this job looking so well after two years. The customers have looked after their driveway and followed the advice given in our user guide, proving that this product always looks its best when it is looked after.

    Beware of the Cowboys – Kensington Street Testimonial

    Mr Khan first contacted us in November 2011 wanting a new pattern imprinted concrete driveway and some fencing put up.  We quoted for both, but Mr Khan decided to use us just for the concrete driveway, as he’d received a more competitive quote for the fencing.  When we arrived last month to install the concrete driveway, we could see the fencing was a complete mess.  Apparently the company that had installed it had no proper equipment and had not quoted for the correct materials.  Mr Khan was very unhappy, and could not get back in touch with the company.

    We installed the driveway and then made attempts to rectify the fencing.  The fencing was nowhere near straight, so it had to be completely redone.  While doing this we got to see the full extent of the mess left behind.  In order to fit the posts in the holes, they had been bashed with a hammer instead of being cut with a chainsaw, and the holes themselves had not been concreted.  We did the best we could and left the fencing looking much better.

    Mr Khan was very pleased with the work, and left us the testimonial below.  Click to enlarge.

    Rutland Drive, Ashton-in-Makerfield – Testimonial

    We are always delighted when we receive testimonials from our customers, and the one we have received from Fred and Joan in Ashton-in-Makerfield was one of the best we have ever had.

    “Hi Ben & Everyone.  Its just about a year now since our drive and front/back gardens were completely transformed by you and your hardworking, superb, funny, polite, nothing too much trouble, workforce.  We were absolutely delighted with the result and still are (money very well spent).  Your after sales service and communication is more than excellent.  Just about the best firm we have ever dealt with and we would recommend you without hesitation.”

    We are very happy that they are enjoying their driveway and garden so much, and hope that they do so for years to come.
