Important Steps To Take To Ensure A High Quality Hardscaping Project.
At Groupe Powerstone, we pride ourselves on delivering high-quality hardscape projects that add tremendous value and enjoyment to our clients' properties for years to come. We understand that finding the right hardscape contractor can be a daunting task, which is why we've developed a process that ensures our clients receive the best service and end result possible.
Step one of our process involves the use of Geotextile fabric. We use this material between the subsoil and the base gravel to prevent intermixing, and also at any vertical surface where washout of base gravel or sand could be a problem. This helps to ensure the durability and longevity of the project.
Next, our team focuses on the preparation process for the paver base. We start with a base of undisturbed and compacted soil, and then use Geotextile fabric to segregate the base materials. This attention to detail in the preparation of the base is crucial to the success of the project, and helps to ensure that the end result is of the highest quality.
When it comes to the materials used for the base, and how it is compacted, we use only the highest quality 0-3/4 gravel and compact the base layer every 2-3 inches as it is being constructed. Our team has years of experience in the proper installation of hardscape base materials, which is crucial to the overall success of the project.
We use a minimum of 10-12 inches of properly compacted base materials for patios and walkways. This ensures a strong and stable foundation for your hardscape project, and helps to ensure that the end result is of the highest quality.
Finally, we pay close attention to the drainage plan for the project. We make sure there is a minimum of 1% slope or greater away from house structures, and may also include internal drainage in raised patios and retaining walls to prevent static water pressure behind the wall. This attention to detail in the drainage plan helps to ensure that the end result is not only aesthetically pleasing, but also functional and durable.
In conclusion, our process at Groupe Powerstone ensures that we deliver high-quality hardscape projects that our clients can enjoy for years to come. We use Geotextile fabric, pay close attention to the preparation of the base, use only the highest quality materials, and focus on a proper drainage plan to ensure that the end result is of the highest quality.
