.my contract with CMS construction/
Flora Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
group was signed back in June 2014. It has not begun any sort of process.
It has been pushed back several times by the company for variuos reasons on their part. Each time a date has been set it is promised to that it is procedure to call 1 week before the start date to confirm when they were supposed to show up. that has not happened thus far. They took money without preforming duties as designated in the contract agreement.
The BBB has issued this listing as such for this business on thier website

President of Operations of the CMS is not handleing this matter in regards to his division of the company properly. He finally called for the first time yesterday saying he would send out a crew to our home the next day but that is not possible because he needs permits to do the job which were never pulled. i have a confimed statement from the town saying they have never had permits pulled for the job.
would NOT RECOMMEND this company
Flora Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
professional also CMS construction for any job. we hired this company in June of 2014 and it is now the middle of sept and not a bit of work has been done. Every time we call they give us the run around giving us a start date and never show. we have signed a contract and given a hefty deposit and they have not done any work to this day. I will be making out a police report, and contacting my attorney in regards to making sure they give my money back.
If you are looking to do research on this company before they start your job let me help you out. They go under several names, CMS Builders llc,Cms builders Inc, CMS construction company, CMS construction Inc, Cms Consrtuction Group among others. If you try to email the CMS( division of
Flora Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
) on their CMS website email it does not exist says URL not found, and if you want to go to their location there are no signs on the building or road. I have been there.I just want to end this have my money returned and move on to a more professional company. as of now it is in my attorney's hands.

was the project manager and was onsite every day. Other than taking breaks for lunch, they worked - and when I say they worked - they worked hard!!

even met us at BlueMax to show us the choices of pavers and stone available to us. To say the choices available are overwhelming is an understatement, but
Flora Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
knew which color of stone would look great with which color of paver. He also knew which stone would hold up the best over time, and he also has the creativity to layout the pavers and stone in a unique way so that we didn't just end up with pavers in "straight lines." At our initial planning meeting,
Flora Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
asked various question to help him determine which style of patio and fire pit we would like. The result is a multi-level, natural looking patio and fire pit which will last for many years to come. The project was finished before the timeframe we were given. And when they left, they leveled the yard back and picked up every single piece of trash that could be picked up. Other than the patio and fire pit, you would not know they have been in the yard. Would we use them again?? MOST DEFINITELY!!! We most highly recommend

We priced out stamped concrete and paver patios with about 7 different companies. We originally decided on stamped concrete thinking we couldn't afford pavers...until we received the estimate from

We had a 14x19 paver patio installed. The crew was on time, very friendly, and efficient. Installation took about 2 days. They made a mess but cleaned up before they left on both days.

was easy to get a hold of and checked on installation after day 1 and day 2.

It looks and functions beautifully. I have gotten many compliments. It was permitted so the borough came by and commented on what a professional job it was. The crew worked tirelessly 6 days a week for 2-3 weeks until completed. They started at 7:30 am and often worked till after 6 pm making sure the work site was safe for the evening so that I could still let my dog run in a patch of the backyard.

I called and left a message and CT called me back and set a date to come out and give me an estimate. He was prompt and very nice. We discussed all that needed to be done and even the distance the driveway needed to be redone to raise the sunken bricks where the tire tracks were in front of both garages. Our daughter
Flora Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
her car in front of the garage door and was in college so wasn't home much, therefore no real sinking of the bricks in that area. Because of the rainy spring they were delayed in coming out. CT was great in letting me know when they would be out. They came out and did a beautiful job on the sidewalk. The bricks were sunken in front of the porch step because of ground squirrels. They dug down because we thought they were under the porch, only to find the foundation went down about 6 ft. So the damage was done between the foundation and under the bricks for the sidewalk. Nothing they could have done about that. I was gone most of the time they had come out. I came home that day to find the sidewalk done and it did look brand new. However; I could really not find much done to the driveway in front of the garage doors. They only came down on the one side about 5 feet and not even that on the other side. So I called CT and he was very nice and said he would have the guys come out again. They did and they did pull up and fix some more of the bricks, however; they did not complete all the bricks as we had discussed. So I called CT again and set up a time when I would be home for me to actually show the workers what needed to be reset. I was really frustrated that it took 3 times for them to come out and there were still a couple that were still too low. I was done at that point and just wanted them to finish the power washing, sand and sealing. The worker came out and spent most of the day power washing the driveway. Then two days later he came back and put sand in between the bricks and then proceeded to seal the driveway. When I got home I could see that there was a change in the color of the bricks down the driveway in the same area that I saw him applying the sealer with a sprayer. This area was the length of the driveway and about 4 ft wide. Then there was a part down the middle that looked great and made the bricks look new again. Then there was another line of bricks same dimension on the right side of the driveway that were dark just like the like the first row of bricks. Down by the apron of the driveway there was darker bricks and the rest looked pretty good. I was upset and when my husband came home we looked at it and thought maybe it needed to dry overnight. When we got up, it looked the same! I called CT and told him about this. He came out a few days later to look at it. After that, I hadn't heard from him so I called and he said he couldn't understand what had happened. It only has happened 2 or 3 times before! He said he wanted a representative from the sealer company to look at it. So a few day later, someone came out. Again I called CT and he told me they couldn't understand it either because they used the same sealer batch for the entire job. He said the sealer company would give them stripper and new sealer to apply again. So now they had to apply a stripper and power wash the sealer off. Of course it was very difficult to get all of it off, which I am not even sure if it really came off. Again the guy worked for hours and hours. A few days later he came back and re-sanded and then applied sealer again. We were unfortunately out of town during this period (the week of June 28 to
Flora Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
2nd) , which I told CT while we were gone to let him know. He said that they got it to look 80% better. When we got home, again it was very patchy looking and was not at all what I or anyone else would expect it to look like. I will attach pictures for you to see. I called CT again and told him we weren't happy and he said that the worker told him that when he applied the sand that he thinks he didn't get it all off of the top of the brick and when the sand gets wet it darkens. So if there is sand on top of the brick it will discolor it. Now it is sealed and locked into the brick. It looks terrible! I was so tired of dealing with this. I was exhausted with the whole job! Now there are tire

on the driveway at all four tires where my daughter

. It is a big mess! I don't know if it will ever wear off but they totally ruined my driveway. My husband called CT to talk about the bill and CT said he would discount it $300.00. At the time my husband and I just accepted it. But now after the summer and pulling in and seeing the how terrible it looks I knew I had to write this review. I thought this was a professional company and they had done hundreds of driveways just like mine. Why am I one of the group of 2 or 3 that this happened to? Just my luck! I subscribed to Angie's List so this type of thing wouldn't happen to me this time! So this was very disheartening. I am really fed up and really have no recourse now because we have already paid them and the look of the driveway has only gotten worse not better.

When we bought our home in 2002 we called 3 companies out to estimate replacing our chattahoochee with Chicago brick. All 3 companies insisted it couldn't be done with brick, and were unable to come up with a solution for bricking around the pool without damaging the pool itself. They instead, wanted to pour concrete making my backyard look like a street! Frustrated, I consulted with some friends who recommended

came out on time and was professional, thorough and had a suggestion of using Columbian Brick, much cheaper and easier on the feet. His price was less than the concrete "street look" and included removal of the deck which other companies said we would be responsible for removing. We were so happy with

that me hired them shortly after to remove the concrete driveway and

the Columbian Brick. 12 years later the backyard and driveway still look as good as the day the brick was laid:) We recently hired them again to resurface the interior of our pool and have recommended them to several friends and clients of our own.

We are absolutely thrilled with the work that

and his crew did for us. Our project started out as a utilitarian one - repairing a couple of retaining walls and rebuilding our crumbling brick steps. But, with some design magic from

and

, our front yard has been transformed into a beautiful space, with a wonderful paved landing/patio connecting two sets of bluestone-and-brick steps and with great new plants that surround, soften, and shelter the patio and steps. The crew was very skilled and did a superb job matching the mortar color for the new brickwork with that of our house and matching the mortar joint strike pattern so that old and new brickwork blend together almost seamlessly. We also really appreciated
