When was the work done?
The work was carried out in 2009.
What was involved?
Sean paved my front and back garden. We have three cars and I wanted to be able to park all of them in the driveway so we had it dug up and repaved larger. Sean also added a new front step and built a nice flower bed to add colour. I had the back garden paved as well because we have dogs and it was becoming too much trouble to take care of the grass. I wanted low maintenance. We chose imprinted concrete in two different patterns.
How did you choose Caseys Concrete?
I saw an advertisement for them. I had spoken to another paving guy but I wasn't too happy with their sample book. I chose Sean to do the work because he had good ideas, his sample book was better and I had more options to choose from.
Had you definite ideas in mind before you talked to Sean Casey?
Nothing definite, I was looking for ideas. They main thing I wanted was to get something low maintenance.
Did Sean introduce new ideas?
He did, yes. Sean's very approachable, easy to talk to and has great ideas. He was able to show me available options, patterns and make suggestions.
How did the project run?
It was excellent and there were no issues at all. They arrived on time every day and completed all of the work on schedule. The project only took a couple of days and everything was clean and tidy when they finished. Before the concrete was put in Sean and I sat down to have a final discussion to make sure that I was happy about everything that had been decided. It was great in that sense to confer and make sure everything was clear.
What was the biggest benefit to you of using Caseys Concrete?
There were a couple of things. I liked the fact that I only had to deal with one person and that was Sean. If I had a question or I wanted to change my mind on something, which I did a few times, I just spoke to Sean and he handled it. Another thing I liked was that Sean gave me a price to do the job and he stuck to it. There were no hidden surprises. That was nice because I've had quite a bit of work done on the house the last few years and there's always surprises at the end. Sean was very clear from the beginning that the price would not change and it didn't.
What's your favourite part now?
The front garden. We have three cars and we can now park them all easily in the driveway. Before the driveway was done we could park only two and had to leave one on the street. I also really like the little flower area Sean built for me. It adds a bit of colour to the driveway in front and is easy to maintain.
Would you recommend Caseys Concrete to others?
I would and I have done.
