“I want color!”
Carol is a Perfect Paver Co customer who knew exactly what she wanted to achieve with her driveway restoration. Carol lives in the Willoughby Golf community located in Stuart on the beautiful Treasure Coast of South Florida. This is a Spanish-style home with a 2500 square foot driveway. This driveway was original to the house and after 26 years, it was time for this area to receive a little TLC. After seeing an advertisement for Perfect Paver Co on Facebook, Carol was confident this was the company for the job. “It was the first and only company I called.”
There were a couple of challenges discussed during the initial conversations of this project. “The community has strict guidelines when it comes to working during certain hours and I had a timeline. I needed this job to be done in a timely manner to fit my schedule” Stated Carol. The team at Perfect Paver Co was able to accommodate Carol’s schedule to work within the community guidelines.
Nathan and Christian were the technicians assigned to Carol’s project. On their very first interaction, Nathan knew this was a customer who had very high expectations and knew exactly what she wanted. This driveway restoration would consist of repairs, cleaning, sanding, tinting, and sealing. The technicians explained the steps and discussed all of the details important to achieving the best results possible. They were confident and excited to provide Carol with a newly restored and beautiful driveway.
Nathan and Christian got right to work starting with repairs. These repairs were necessary due to a water line going under the pavers directly across the driveway. Over time, this caused the pavers to move and distort the congruity of the area. These altered pavers and others were repaired to maintain a consistent look throughout the entire driveway.
After the repairs, the entire area was steam cleaned of many years of use to get ready for the tinting, sanding, and sealing process. The tinting and sanding of the pavers were to be a very precise and specific detail. He made a few test samples on some pavers that were used during the repairing process. The roof of Carol’s house was a gorgeous terra cotta and she knew she wanted the driveway to be in the same family of color. “I knew Carol wanted a very saturated and vibrant color that would go well with the terra cotta roof. It was important for it to not match perfectly, but be close enough that it was consistent,” said Nathan. Certain areas of the driveway were slightly different colors due to wear, tear, and the strong South Florida sun. Nathan decided that water tinting was the way to approach this particular challenge. They finalized the color and it was a perfect choice for the vibrant and consistent color Carol envisioned. Nathan and Christian applied the tint, the sand then sealed it all in beautifully.
Given the challenges that arose during this project, the results were phenomenal. “If Nathan had not been so diligent and hard-working, I probably would not have had the job finished in the time period that worked with my schedule. I thought they did a very, very good and thorough job,” said Carol. The final result of this job was exceptional and most important it was what Carol wanted. Not only was Carol pleased, but so were her neighbors. Many of them came over to compliment the job and to request an estimate of their driveways right then and there.
