Recent Review: This project took place in 2 phases: 1. After designing the patio addition, the concrete guys came to pour the addition patio. We were not home for this part. The patio addition itself was perfect and agreed upon shape and well done. However, in the process of cleaning up, the crew broke a hose pipe. They did fix it the same day, but my husband had to go back and do additional repairs later, as there was another break in the line, further underground. Also, the crew left chunks of concrete in the grass, there was a large smear of concrete residue on the iron gate to the back yard, and concrete was splattered on the windows and siding of the house where the addition was poured. Additionally, the crew's truck knocked a decorative stone off our driveway's culvert. After the entire project was completed, the Carvestone crew took care of much of the clean up. But, there is still some concrete splatter on the house. Allied also had to send someone out twice to fix the stone on the culvert. We did not pay them the final portion of the project balance until this was completed. Given how much trouble it was to get these items addressed, I'm concerned if we hadn't had this leverage, it would have taken much longer. 2. After the concrete addition cured, the Carvestone crew came out to prepare the existing pea gravel deck for the Carvestone application. This crew was courteous and professional and worked extra hard to do a good job. The Carvestone pattern was customized, as was the color selection, to our desires and turned out beautifully. Once completed, we needed a few touch-ups with the mastic used in the joints of the patio. I contacted the project supervisor, but we ended up going back and forth with him for over a week. I finally got in touch with the head of the Carvestone crew, who was unaware that we needed the additional touch-ups. He came out the very next day and took care of it. We have come to expect hiccups in projects of this scope. Overall, these were manageable and didn't negatively affect the end result. We are extremely pleased with the finished product. We would consider using Allied again if we do another outdoor project.
