Flora Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
is one of the best hardscape companies in the area.
Flora Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
and his crew have done work in at least three different locations in our community. Our community needed to replace our old broken down gazebo. We sent out bids from 4 different companies. Based on the design and proposal write up, Continental won the bidding process. They delivered a beautiful and structurally sound area that is constantly used by the community. Feel free to stop and look at it - it is located at the corner of Fairbourne Court and Bakers Place in
Flora Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
, MD 21076. Keeping in mind, there was a huge demo of an old commercial gazebo and quite a bit of cement prep work, the
Flora Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
spent about $24.5K for the whole project, guaranteed for 2 years.
Flora Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
finished the work in May 2014. Kids climb on the pillars, use sidewalk chalk on the pavers, it is used for kids mini photoshoots, and I have seen picnics happen in the middle of the new area. At least one other homeowner spoke to me about some work
Flora Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
had done for them in the neighborhood a few years prior -- due to ground settling, some stone work shifted (no fault of Continental), and it was explained to me that
Flora Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
held up his warranty and sent a whole crew for most of a day to repair the ground shifting stonework. So, I have seen it first hand they do nice work and they stand behind their work. When the biding came out, Continental was not the cheapest but he also was not the most expensive but he surely did the best work. We would hire him again whether it was a $5K project or a $25K project. Continental does nice work!

Bottom line is that they were in a hurry to move on to the next job with little regard for doing quality work. Very unpleasant experience.
We did not receive a good value for the money spent, as a result we will not use this company to pave our driveway and walkways.
Very sloppy workmanship and a bad attitude to match:
Partially:...More /> 1. pool cage has holes drilled in it that look like a 5 year old did the job. When I asked the owner about this, he said " But you will be the only one who sees it!" Yes, he really said that.
2. workers left trash and partially consumed food at night.
3. many sloppy installations and I have the pictures to prove it.
4. ran the pool pumps with debris in the pool - took weeks to get pool running properly because of this.

In 2006 we paid
Flora Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
$25,000 for a patio, walls and sidewalk project using pavers and stones. The quality of the work was good and we were pleased. In 2006 and 2007 we invested another $7500 for more walls and some plantings. By my lights that made us a pretty good customer, although in hindsight I have some questions about the quality of the timbers and some of the topsoil that was provided.

In April of 2014 I contacted
Flora Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
again about replacing rotting timbers from the 2007 project and realigning and gluing stones in a garden wall. When
Flora Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
came out to look at the job he said he would email a quote the next day. It didn't come, so I had to call twice to get it. It came on May 6, for $1906. Over the next 3-4 weeks I left 3 phone messages and sent an email asking when the job would be scheduled. I was not pushy; I just wanted to know. Finally, I received a message saying it would be mid August. (my initial contact was April). Meanwhile, I got tired of waiting so I contacted another company I learned about on Angie's List. They responded promptly and completed the job in early
Flora Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
. They were conscientious and did a good job. Their quote was for $1350, which also included removing sod in a 4'0" radius around a tree and hauling away a 3"0"x2'0"x2'0" pile of stones. It is now mid August and no word from
Flora Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
.
My mistake this year was believing that a prior business relationship would mean something. If you have a large project you may want to consider
Flora Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
. If it is smaller in scope, why risk the aggravation? And you'might just get a better price.

Pricing was competitive, work was done in a timely manner. Patio and landscaping looked good on completion in June 2013. After only a couple of months, however, most of the bushes were showing significant distress, even though we watered them faithfully, as the company's owner,
Flora Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
Merski, advised. Within another month, all but one or two were dead. Additionally, lawn areas dug up by the company's equipment failed to regrow grass as we were
Flora Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
to believe they would. Mr. Merski's response (replantings/seeding) to correct this was slow, with no action being taken until May of 2014. It was at this time that I noticed for the first time that Mr. Merski's crew, rather than dispose of the demo'ed cement from the stoop, had instead shoved it (large heavy blocks) under the existing deck,
Flora Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
from view. I pointed this out to Mr. Merski who told me that he would have it properly removed.
Since then, while most of the replantings appear healthy, one of the laurels has died. Mr. Merski has failed to respond to emails (including photo) and voice messages (at least four of each) throughout the course of this summer to install another
Flora Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
and remove the chunks of cement . He has our money and seems to consider his obligations to professionally close out the job, therefore, complete.
I would not use his services again, and would not recommend him to others.

I am 100% satisfied with the job.
Flora Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
and
Flora Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
were very professional and prompt every step of the way. They predicted the job to be completed in 2 - 3 weeks. They finished in exactly 2 weeks.
They asked questions along the way to make sure my interpretation of what they were doing was correct (it was).
I was initially concerned as I couldn't find many references regarding their patio work but every reference pertaining to their landscaping service was superiors. After speaking with them and the few references that I had - I was convinced that this was the right choice.
If I had another patio to do - they would be my first choice.

I have to write a review even though
Flora Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
didn't work for me at this time. I made an appointment with them for an estimate to replace sidewalk flags. In the meantime, the company who had done the original work a year ago, contacted me and offered to do it, and I felt it was only fair to give them the opportunity. But I have to say, both
Flora Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
and his secretary
Flora Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
in the office couldn't have been more gracious. They responded to messages promptly and were very helpful. I would definitely try them for future work without hesitation!

Everything went great, Work was finished in a quick and professional manner. Took about 2 days. They did a great job cleaning up the old materials. I will use them again if I need any more stone block or paver work.

Work was done professionally and quickly. This was our second job with them. I had photoshopped what I was looking for; the complete job was spot-on. They even completed a small side project: a concrete patch next to the front steps that we could put our one-year old daughter's hand prints in. Well done. Would definitely use them again!

Shinda and his crew were great to work with--very responsive, and listened to my wishes. Shinda worked with me to design a useable plan as the project progressed and we encountered issues with the slope and configuration. He had great ideas and broadened my vision for the space. The project was a major redo of a steep back yard with challenging slopes and working conditions. Access was nearly impossible, but they built an access road around the bottom of my property by hauling in many dump truck loads of dirt. That ended up giving me a larger space at the lower end that we were able to add a trampoline to. Behind the house where I formerly had no place to sit, they were able to add 2 lovely patios and a garden area. I'm amazed at how much useable space there is where once was just an overgrown slope! The team worked hard and long every day with great attitudes throughout. They paid close attention to the details. The result is beautiful! The rockwork is attractively done and the flagstone surface has an amazingly close fit. The many stone stairs are impressive and so solid and gorgeous. The
Flora Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
crew went above and beyond to give me a yard I will enjoy for a long time to come.

Flora Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
is very knowledgeable about the outdoor construction business. He is also exceptionally responsive in presenting an initial plan and collecting a deposit. We met with
Flora Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
3 months prior to our new home being completed. We originally agreed to an outdoor kitchen, and a lot of concrete work for hot tub pad & walkway. Soon after the agreement completed, & we saw how the back yard was going to look, we realized that the hot tub & walkway were not feasible. We immediately notified
Flora Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
& he agreed to down scope the project. The renegotiation was cumbersome & was fair only after we insisted on fair value for several items. On the original contract,
Flora Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
gave us a16% discount if we made a deposit quickly. He did not disclose that he offered a10% discount anyway. Even though we scheduled the work for early June, we had to make several calls to get
Flora Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
to respond. He gave a sketchy drawing to to workers who were going to pour the patio extension on the wrong side. This was the first of many errors I caught as the work was in progress. I essentially became the on site manager. Then the actual work began & the work was sloppy, unprofessional with no management by
Flora Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
. He showed up once & after assuring us that he would personally supervise the project. We never saw him again & were only able to communicate via text unless we absolutely insisted that he call us. I asked about a building permit &
Flora Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
said "not required." Wrong-o! There is still new construction in our neighborhood so inspectors were in the area frequently & saw this project. A permit was required & the electrical & plumbing were done by non licensed persons. At least
Flora Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
could not present the names when requested by the inspector. The concrete work (3' x 23') was sloppy, drained into our patio & had no footer. When we complained about the concrete work, the workers attempted to re skim & it was worse...numerous cracks, no expansion joints & no footer.
Flora Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
's response was that no footer required for 4" depth...actual depth was 6". In all fairness,
Flora Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
could not have known the actual depth as he never showed up once during the project. We did complain about the work being unprofessional several times during the work. We have documentation! No response except for excuses about "my truck being repaired, dog died, surgery in family". No end to excuses!!! After we threatened legal action & an inspector came in 4site,
Flora Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
did refund our deposit except for grill & doors already purchased which we could use. We found a reputable & professional contractor who tore out all of
Flora Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
's work & is doing a magnificent job. Only after seeing the new work did we realize how mediocre, careless, slipshod, unprofessional & tacky COC work actually was. I take full responsibility for not conducting more due diligence & relying too much on Angie's List reviews. Please note that I am 70 years old & have been involved with numerous projects associated with eleven new construction or previously owned homes. COC stands alone as the worst experience ever. Vary has received numerous strong positive reviews. Perhaps we were an exception but I would insist on seeing actual work completed. Definitely not recommended.
