Concrete Walkway and Patio

Replacement of a walkway that was not in the best shape with a concrete patio.

Pavers were replaced with contcrete that was graded correctly and maintenance free. The pavers had a flower bed that ran along the side of the house. The problem was that the condition of the bed would have required quite a bit of work to get it looking nice and the grade needed to be addressed. Concrete was an easy answer.

There was also a 3′ x 20′ section of concrete that was part of a coverred patio on the side of the garage. This had some cracking and heaving since the original pour was only 2″ thick.

To address all of the issues in this area, we had concrete poured up to the house, elimating the flower bed, and tied it together with the coverred patio. This leaves a large area that is functional, graded correctly, and low maintenance.
