Matthews Patio Pavers Reviews

F
"We hired Premier the beginning of October 2011 to install a patio and fence at our home. The beginning of November 2011, Premier installed a Paver patio and fence at our home. We are completely satisfied with the fence. The patio, on the other hand, was completely unsatisfactory.

The first attempt at installation had concrete that was left spilling out from the patio, the pavers were visibly crocked, no consistent pattern flow from the patio to the walkway, and grout work was visibly irregular. After repeated calls voicing our complaint, the contractor came back to view the patio five days later and agreed that the patio did not look good and the only way to fix the patio was to redo the patio and agreed to in a different style.

In the meantime, the contractor left all their materials in our yard. The first weekend in December 2011, the contractor came out and removed the construction materials after our repeated requests to do so and three days later came to reinstall the patio.

The second attempt at the patio was a Paver patio without grout or concrete. This patio was not structurally sound and a safety issue. The pavers moved under your feet as you walked on them, despite the contractors assurance that the pavers would "settle" and not move. The pavers began to chip and significantly move within days of installation. We attempted for weeks to reach the contractor via phone, even stopping by their office location and could not get a response. Due to our concerns about the stability of the patio, We had another contractor come out and give us an analysis of Premier's patio.

Their analysis is listed below:

1)
Matthews Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
restraint needed to be placed around entire perimeter of patio to prevent wash-out/ erosion of base sand. There was approximately 11' missing.
2) Downspout which dumped onto the patio needed to be piped under the pavers to prevent erosion from washing out base material or
Matthews Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
of pavers.
3) Initial paver installation did not include enough base material or which caused the severe unevenness in the clay pavers. The base material was re-secured with proper gravel sizes and compaction.
4) The patio was set on too much of a slope which would make it more difficult to set furniture. Standard is a 1 1/2% slope maximum.
5) The initial pavers were not tamped in place to "finish" the interlock process which caused them to feel very loose when walked on. This loose feel was making the edges break and chip away.

We hired this other contractor to replace the patio as we have a small child and a dog and the patio that Premier installed was not safe for anyone to walk on. The new contractors were extremely prompt, professional and installed a professional patio.

We gave Premier ample opportunity to respond and the benefit of the doubt but it became clear that they misrepresented their ability to install patios given that both patio styles were deficient and that there was no "fix" this contractor could make as it was clear to the other contractor just by sight that there were significant basic installation deficiencies with Premier's patio second installation.

We requested that Premier give us a full refund of the $3,400 that we paid for the patio portion of the work performed and have an unresolved complaint through the better business bureau for this matter as they refused to go to arbitration. We are evaluating our options with regard to small claims court. The business addresses that we have of record are vacant.

We consider ourselves to be very fair people but this company needs to be held accountable for their poor workmanship and we don't want to see anyone else be taken advantage of as we have been.

"It took a while to work out a schedule but once we did they came as agreed. It was right before Christmas so it felt really rushed. The first day was mainly constructing the wall and the second day was filling it in and generally cleaning up.

About a month later I noticed that one side of the wall had started to lean pretty significantly so I called
Matthews Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
(owner) to come and have a look . When he came out he agreed it was leaning and arranged a time to have his crew come out and fix it.

They did come out but less prepared than I'd hoped. They basically used a large machine and a pole to attempt to push the wall up (read: vertically straight) and wedged small pieces of wood in the spaces created by pushing on the wall created. As a result it does look like SLIGHTLY better, it's still not straight... never will be. I'm not really worried about the wall falling but do wonder how long it can last. With basic materials like this the differentiation in this
Matthews Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
is in craftsmanship and this is what was clearly lacking this time.

As such I feel I got ripped off (for the price I paid). I gave them an overall C because he at least came to fix it, did it for free, and with a smile on his face. If he hadn't responded I would have of course given him an "F". (And conversely an "A" if he'd built it straight from the start!)

I don't mind spending the money on professionals if their work is at that standard. Unfortunately this time for me it wasn't but I do applaud is enthusiasm regarding fixing the wall when I called several weeks later.

This experience is why I bought a membership in Angie's List. I'm so glad I did! My wife says it was a small price to learn an important life lesson and I have to say I agree with her.

"Had many quotes and differences of opinons to resolve mostiure problem in crawl space and in surrounding exterior yard. Landrestore is the only one that recommended EXTERIOR french drains to prevent moisutre from entering crawl space. This made best sense to me to captiure water before it entered the crawl space. Was very satisfied with the professional staff and qualify of work, and timeleness of completion. Highly recommend this company."

"From the onset,
Matthews Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
has been extremely professional, prompt and proactive. One of the first landscapers to respond to my inquiries back in September,
Matthews Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
has been very involved from start to finish of the project. He consistently reached out to me to advise of timing for next steps and stayed on top of the project from beginning to end. The pricing estimate he provided was very reasonable and the project took 5 days to complete (start-to-finish).

The crew was very punctual and I was extremely impressed with how quickly they accomplished the job.
Matthews Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
, the "foreman" was meticulous in his supervision and there was nothing he didn't miss. There were a number of little extras he and the team did for me that were not included as part of the formal estimate - installing the drainpipe from the gutter downspout to the swale, installing a stone "pad" for the trashcans, trimming the trees, installing a new bed around an existing tree at side of yard, etc. In addition, my neighbor was having an issue with her gutters and erosion and
Matthews Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
personally went over and filled the hole with gravel and cleaned out her gutter at no charge.

In the spring
Matthews Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
and team will begin Phase 2 which will include laying Zoysia sod and installing additional plants in the bed in front of the house.

I couldn't have been more please with the quality of the work and the professional way in which they handled the work form start-to-finish. I have already recommended

to friends who are in the

"The owner,
Matthews Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
, was noticing things I didn't and fixing them. We told him we really wanted to bring in as much light as possible and he suggested adding some trapezoid windows in our shed roof above the floor to ceiling windows/screens. What a difference those windows made. Our new screened in porch is double the size and we're getting twice as much light in the house. After they put down the composite decking I noticed one
Matthews Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
of a board created a minor high spot on the original portion of the foundation that he didn't build. He had one of his guys crawl under the porch and shave some would off the beam fixing the problem rather than remove 3/4 of the decking they'd just laid. He said if that didn't work he'd take the flooring off and fix it. Most contractors would have said it's not their fault as that beam was preexisting.
Matthews Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
thought the new doors should have door closers on them. He just went out and got them and installed them without requesting any additional payments. That's someone who cares and doesn't cut corners to give you a low bid and then turn around and nickel and dime you for everything that should have been part of the bid.

and his crew cared as much about my project as I did. They were a pleasure to work with. The team was fast, focused on quality, and kept the job site clean. I've done several remodels over the years that all went well, but
Matthews Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
and his team were by far the best! I highly recommend them. ** UPDATE 3/2011 ** Brought
Matthews Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
and his team back to add a

after finished putting in our pool. Great job again. Really helped us design the right
Matthews Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
to go with our new yard. I can't say enough good things about
Matthews Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
and his team! ** UPDATE 4/2011 ** Called
Matthews Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
about one of our doors not latching properly. He came out and looked at it and determined that the door was flawed. Instead of telling me to call the manufacturer to use the warranty, he called them and met them at my house to show them the door. He's going to install the new replacement door when it arrives next week. He's not asking for any more money even though it's not technically his fault. I chose the EZ-Breeze windows that the doors go with and he's taking care of me. This is truly the way service should be!

are the best! Not only do they all listen to the customer they ask questions. That's an awesome way to do business when you have to please a customer who lives at your jobsite! We knew we would have to deal with alot of mud. We have two dogs who don't like to go for walkies, they LOVE to run around the backyard and chase the local cats away! Prepared like it was for war, we dealt with the muddy doggie feet for a few weeks and boy was it worth it.

was instep the whole way. One day
Matthews Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
came to me and wanted to know what design I wanted him to cut on the ends of the

! Speaking of cedar, I had wanted to use cedar for its outstanding weather resistance.

and the guys have been gone only 3 hours and we already miss them. I am sad to see them go, but I guess we can't get keep them from making other people happy wioth their yards! We love you guys! We'll call in the Spring when we are scheduling a party to show off the new backyard!

"The original work that we had planned to do was for the first wall only which was a bit more than half of the project total. However, after we saw the quality of the work and the impact on the property, we asked
Matthews Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
and
Matthews Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
(one of his supervisors) to do more. They were very cooperative and treated me like their only customer. We added the second wall, landscaping, some stairs and lighting to the original project.
Matthews Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
's crew did a fabulous job with everything but they built some stairs that wildly exceeded my expectations. What started off as a replacing an old wall which was washing out turned out to be a focal point of the property. All of this at a reasonable price. Especially considering the difficulty of work on the first wall. These guys just don't give you a reason to use anybody else. Best experience I've ever had with a contractor of any type and I will use them again soon. If you need any landscaping work you'd be nuts not to call
