It’s been weighing on our hearts that we could do more to give back to the communities we serve and do so in a way that would rally our team together.
Some brands that we look up to have a charity that they contribute back to, and we think that’s really awesome.
For us, we recognized that each person on our team has a unique story and a charity or cause that has impacted their life, so choosing just one wouldn’t work.
We’re so excited to share with you how our team has come up with a way to learn more about each other and what we’re each passionate about and work together to create raving fans all while giving back to the community for doing so.
Each month we will share a story about a member of our team and the charity they’re passionate about. During that entire month, each time our team works together to create a raving fan and that fan lets us know, Perfect Paver Co will make a $50 donation to that team members charity.
In the month of May, we’re sharing Scott Lammers’ story of how the Ronald McDonald House of Cincinnati has impacted his life.
When Scott’s wife became pregnant, they figured out through an ultrasound that their son, Jack, would be born with a heart defect. They were shocked and had to figure out how to move forward with this information.
So, they decided to take advantage of Cincinnati Children’s Hospital network and were able to be admitted to the Ronald McDonald House of Cincinnati. Instead of having to drive two hours everyday, back and forth while Jack was going to be in the hospital, they were able to stay at the Ronald McDonald House.
They had all sorts of activities there for them to take part in, food, and a room to stay in, all free of charge while they were going through this difficult time. Jack had to have surgery on his heart valves, due to blood not circulating enough to his lungs.
Fortunately, everything was successful and Jack is now like any other 2 year old – happy and full of energy.
Without organizations like the Ronald McDonald House, things like this wouldn’t be possible. We are so excited to be able to give back to the causes and charities that have made an impact on our team members, because they are who make Perfect Paver Co so great.
It’s finally here!!!
During the entire month of May, each time our team worked together to create a raving fan and that fan let us know, Perfect Paver Co made a $50 donation to our team member, Scott Lammers’ charity of choice, the Ronald McDonald House.
Well, May came to a close and we gained 48 new raving fans, for a grand total of $2,400 to be donated on behalf of Scott and his son, Jack!
We couldn’t be happier to be able to give back to our team members and to the community.
To our customers, please know that your feedback can make a world of difference.
Check out Scott coming back to the Ronald McDonald House and being able to donate the check himself!
Keep an eye out for the next team member we choose, as part of our We Care Initiative!
Hi, I’m Mark with the Perfect Paver Company and I came out to Jupiter, Florida today to show
you the perfect example of why it’s so important to seal your pavers.
Today, we’re at an outdoor mall area and if you’re from the Jupiter area, you probably know exactly where I’m at. So what I want to show you is, throughout the outdoor area you have these overhangs and the overhangs prevent water from hitting the pavers underneath of them. Obviously outside of the overhangs, the water is able to directly hit the pavers.
So, what’s happening is because they don’t have gutters or downspouts, the water is actually coming off of the overhang and directly hitting the pavers, and it’s expediting and magnifying the impact that rain has on pavers and so protecting your pavers from rain is the number one important reason why you want to seal your pavers.
So, here’s something else; the pavers directly underneath the overhang are exposed to a lot of high volume water and it’s deteriorating the surface of the paver. You’re starting to see a lot of aggregate exposed, which isn’t good.
If you come up over here underneath of the bench area and overhang you don’t see any of the exposed aggregate, which is the white rock coming through. It’s still has all of its original surface intact.
So, the number one reason why you seal your pavers is to prevent rain deterioration, rain damage because it’s inevitable, it will happen on concrete pavers and so I’ll walk around and show you just some places where you can see how the rain is deteriorating the surface of concrete pavers.
So here’s a section where you have these overhangs and if you look directly beneath them where the water hits the paver, it’s a clean line where that water is coming off and it’s deteriorating the surface.
Pavers on my left, not exposing rain, they look beautiful. Pavers on my right, rain makes them look terrible.
Hey come closer, something else I noticed is it’s not just pavers that are affected by rain. Look at this bench exposed to rain – destroyed. It looks much better protected from the rain,
Obviously, the sun plays a huge role as well. You want to protect the Pavers from the sun. The UV rays really go after the color and attacks those, starts drying those out, dulling those out.
Most importantly, if you coat your pavers and protect them from the rain, they will last significantly longer and look significantly better for longer. Mark with Perfect Paver Company, that’s why you should seal your pavers.
