Are you interested in enhancing your home’s curb appeal by updating your front entrance? If so, you’ll appreciate this journey through a recent front entryway makeover project by Perfect Paver Co. Located in Indian Hill, OH (Cincinnati), we brought our client’s vision to life by seamlessly incorporating repurposed natural stone from their existing front steps. This blend of old and new beautifully complements the architecture and age of their home!
Building on Past Success
This project was especially fulfilling for us because we had the chance to work with a client again whom we had assisted previously. Having previously worked on their back patio, we were excited to reconnect with this client. Initially, they approached us for releveling and grout touch-ups for their deteriorating front steps. However, our team proposed a more comprehensive solution, suggesting the reconstruction of the steps with new materials while integrating the existing stone, which still complemented the home’s aesthetic.
With the materials and design finalized, the project kicked off. Witness the tear-out process and the meticulous preparation of the area for a concrete footer reinforced with rebar, guaranteeing durability and preventing future settling.
Repurposing Existing Stone
As concrete is poured and the foundation takes shape, get a closer look at how we repurpose the old natural stone we saved from the existing steps. We cut the pieces into strips and used them as a veneer for each step face, ensuring a perfect match with the house. Watch as we set the new rock-face limestone step treads into place.
Unilock Basalt Copthorne Paver Installation
After allowing the mortar to cure, we return to lay the Unilock Basalt Copthorne pavers. The dark colors of the pavers provide striking contrast to the lighter natural stone of the steps and house. Witness the meticulous laying and cutting of the pavers.
Final Touches and Clean-Up
To ensure perfection, our technicians carefully clean up the surrounding areas, leaving no detail overlooked.
Complementing Architecture and Fresh Look
Our goal was to ensure that the new materials complemented the architecture of the home while providing a fresh, updated look. That’s why we opted for natural limestone treads and incorporated existing natural stone for the step risers. This choice honors the age and architecture of the home, blending old and new seamlessly.
