Costly Mistakes to Avoid

If you think hiring a professional is more expensive, see what happens when you cut corners.

Dust & Smoke

There should not be any smoke or dust created by work being done at your house. We use a tank of water which helps to cool down the blade ensuring that dust or smoke is not created.

“Silica dust is made up of small particles that become airborne during work activities with materials that contain crystalline silica.” – CDC

 

Breathing in silica dust is extremely harmful and can lead to Silicosis. This is why it is imperative to hire a company that knows how to avoid this dangerous dust from being created at a job site. 

The Wrong Way

The Right Way

Filled Cell Blocks & Interlocking Walls

No one fills the cells, but we do. If you leave them hollow, you create water and weakness. When you fill all the cells you now have a poured concrete wall encased in concrete block. This makes it a forever wall. 50+ year wall. Nobody does this because they cheap out. 

When building an inter-locking wall, the gravel goes in all the holes and in-between all the joints for extra strength.

The Right Way

Properly Shutdown Job Site

At the end of a workday the job site should be shut down properly. What should this look like? Everything is neat and tidy, with no tools laying around, no trash left behind and caution tape surrounding the incomplete project to ensure the safety of the homeowners.

A lot of times companies have multiple jobs going on at once and the chances of them coming back after being lackadaisical with the way they shut down a project site are slim to none. You don’t want to be stuck with tools and materials scattered about while you wait for the crew to return to finish your project.

Hidden PVC Pipe

Installing a PVC pipe allows water to flow through the wall. Most people don’t add this feature in or if they do they get a bright-colored pipe that sticks out. As you can see in the picture with the stone veneer, there is a gray pipe we installed that almost blends in with the color of the stone.

It’s incredibly important to let the wall work with nature instead of creating a barrier. t allows the water behind the wall to seep through and not put pressure against the wall.

The Right Way

Paved Edging

The wrong way to pave an edge is with cement. Notice the cement along the brick walkway. This is the cheap way to do it.

What should happen is that 1-foot spikes go into the ground and the heavy-duty, durable plastic paved edge leans against the pavers and holds it all in place.
