If you have ever had a house built, you know that there is a very specific order in which you have to build it. First comes digging and leveling, then foundation, framing, electrical and plumbing. You’re certainly not going to call the drywaller or hardwood flooring expert before the walls are in! A general contractor will ensure that everything lines up properly so that everyone works together in as much harmony as possible.
That got us thinking about the people we have to work with as we pour our stamped concrete. When it comes to outdoor projects, it’s important that contractors get along so that they’re not stepping on others’ toes or causing delays. Here are the people we most often have to work with (or around) when we’re pouring stained or stamped concrete.
Homeowners who have built a house from scratch have an excellent opportunity to take charge of every part of the landscaping (plants) and hardscaping (walkways, walls, and stairs). We’ll work with your landscapers so that you get the exact look you want from your property, and we’ll make sure to be careful of any plants that might already be in.
Pool are most often made from concrete, vinyl, or fiberglass. When it comes time to pour your concrete pool deck, the timing can be different depending on the type of pool you’re installing. Of course, you’ll want to have the pipes all laid before we cover them with concrete. We’ll be sure to work with your pool installer so that it goes as smoothly as possible. Of course, if your current concrete is cracking and you’re starting from scratch with a new stamped concrete pool deck, we can handle that as well.
Stamped Concrete With A Pergola
Pergolas of today are most often made from wood. You can buy a cheap one at Sam’s Club for $800, and it’s moveable if you have the strength. Most of them, however, are set in place and built by professional contractors who specialize in similar jobs such as deck building. These pergolas are often permanently set in place, and the design might include the poles of the pergola to be set in the ground. This requires careful planning with your stamped concrete contractor. Pergolas can also have some of their legs set in walls, which we’re more than happy to be involved with as well.
Stamped Concrete With a Fire Pit
First off, let’s remind you that we’re actually expert fire pit installers as well. All you have to do is pick your design and we’ll install it and your stamped concrete patio at the same time. But if you choose to have someone else install your fire pit, we’ll work with them so that the project is completed efficiently.
Stamped Concrete With Paver Borders
Once again, there really won’t be a need to call anyone else if you’re looking for a stamped concrete driveway or walkway with a paver border. We work with pavers all the time, so giving us a call will prevent you from having to hire yet another contractor when you’re improving your hardscaping.
