    Testimonial And Case Study

    Finished Pattern Imprinted Driveway

    Finished Pattern Imprinted Driveway

    Last month we received a lovely testimonial from a customer whose pattern imprinted concrete driveway we installed in Denton in December. It came via our partners at The Best Of Bury, who gather reviews about local businesses and show them on their site. The review from Karen H reads:

    Professional and friendly service, workers tidy and on time. My new driveway looks fabulous and I’m getting a lot of compliments from friends and neighbours. I just wish I’d had it done sooner.’

    New Drainage System Installation

    New Drainage System Being Installed

    For the installation of the driveway, first the existing driveway was broken up and dug out. Next a trench was dug on the left hand side of the drive for the new drainage system. Pipework was laid in this trench, which connected the existing drains to the front of the driveway where the new Aco drainage was to be fitted. The whole area was then levelled, and the Aco drainage fitted and connected. A new brick wall was built at the front of the property complete with two pillars at either side, new fencing was erected, and a small step was installed at the doorway using KL blocks. Concrete was poured into the step along with the rest of the driveway, which was then coloured, patterned and sealed, and a full clean was given to the whole area to finish.

    We have made a full case study including pictures of the driveway in question, which you can see here.

    Case Study – Tannery Way, Gorton

    Pattern Imprinted Concrete Compass Acid Stained Compass

    Pattern Imprinted Concrete Acid Stained Compass

    Installed in September 2012, this landscaped patio and raised patio area featured a variety of interesting features. A pond area was formed and brick walls erected to define the pond area and the raised patio area. Key kerbs were installed to create a series of large half-moon steps leading to the raised patio area and the back patio doors. At the side of the pond a filter was situated and was covered by creating a small decked area, which incorporated a hatch for access to the filter. The use of pacific boardwalk pattern suited the raised area, with the pattern, compass, decking and pond area working beautifully together. The lower patio featured the country cobble print, which with its traditional look completed the whole area perfectly. The lower patio was linked to a cobble pathway which stretched down the side of the house toward the front of the property. Before the job was protected with seal, the compass was artistically stained.

    This week we received an email from the customer saying the following:-

    Hi Tim & Ben

    This email is a thank you for the transformation you made of our garden after a certain company left it in a disgraceful manner. Your whole team of lads are a credit to your company in the way the work & their attitude was carried out.

    As you know the company we first gave the job to absolutely wrecked our garden & damaged our property even though we did our homework to avoid ‘cowboy builders’. We cannot thank you enough for the way you have sorted out all the previous builders mistakes and for your professional aftercare.

    Your workmanship is well worth the money we have spent and all the tea made. We will not hesitate to recommend you to anyone, you have done a fantastic job.

    Testimonials: It Could Be You!

    We like to use our website to tell you about the products and services we offer. That’s why we’ve got this blog, dedicated to talking about pattern imprinted concrete driveways and related issues. But sometimes we like to let our customers do the talking.

    Recently we received an email from one of our clients, describing exactly how pleased they were with the quality of the pattern imprinted concrete driveway installation that we’d performed for them.

    You can read the full testimonial by clicking here.

    We’re always after more testimonials. We perform a lot of installation jobs, and we understand that our clients are often very busy people who don’t necessarily have the time to write us a letter or an email after the job has finished. But we’d like to ask you to consider sending us a testimonial message, no matter how brief.

    You can contact us using this form. We’re planning on expanding our database of case studies as well sometime soon, so if you contact us for a pattern imprinted concrete driveway installation we may end up taking some photographs of the job as it progresses.

    Oh, and if you’d like to get a driveway that’s so good we want to shout about it, remember that we offer free, no obligation quotes.
