I contact Marsha to come to my house to estimate the price. She quoted 1400 usd for 1400 sq ft backyard. I thought it was quite a fair price, so I did not bother to contact other contractors. The job was excellent. I can say my backyard pavers were done by a professional.
Mark with Exotic Pavers made an appointment to come out within 3 days from my initial call. He arrived on time to take measurements and made some thoughtful and very good design suggestions. His bid was thorough and right on the money. Mark was very friendly and professional. We are not quite ready to begin this project but we do plan to use Exotic Pavers when the time is right.
Overall, an amazing job. The patio is beautiful. They recommended a local screen enclosure provider to help complete my total vision for my patio project, and he's been on point so far (the enclosure is still in progress).
The patio itself had a few minor hiccups due to some weird issues with the existing concrete in my backyard, and some measurement issues, but Marsha and her crew adapted and things turned out fine. 'Fine' really isn't the right word, as I knew what I expected in my mind and the end result totally exceeded the expectation.
It's a solid, good looking patio with made-to-order paver stones and completely covers the underlaying footer for the screen enclosure, which is going in this week. It really brings the whole yard together.
From the initial meeting with Marsha and Marc, owners of the company, to the working men who constructed the patio to the man cleaned up after all the work was done, the experience was replete with professionalism. Marcia and Marc came to my home twice because I had to wait for the HOA to approve the change to the backyard. Then I had to decide on the color and shape of pavers. Moreover, I changed my mind regarding the shape of the patio and the owners had to rethink the price. The revised price was fair. Exotic Pavers did the work soon after they received the pavers they ordered for me.
Their workers are experienced and know what they're doing. It was very important to me to able to trust the skills of persons who were changing the look of my home. And I could with Exotic Pavers.
