After four days of work, the backyard and entrance of the Simoneaux’s home in Covington, LA is completed. “It has been a total transformation! We have always enjoyed our backyard, but now it is a true extension of our home,” states Christi Simoneaux. “It’s almost too good to be true.”
“Every time I walk outside, I still can’t believe this is my backyard,” agrees sixteen-year-old Carter Simoneaux, who can’t wait to invite a few friends over to celebrate his birthday later this month. Not to be outdone, younger brother Dustin is already planning a gathering for his 7th grade class at the end of this school year. “It won’t come soon enough for me,” states Dustin.
The transformation process began a month ago with ideas and plans. When the installer, Rod Trahan of La Pavers was chosen, the difficult choices had been made. Using the Belgard Design Studio, the Simoneauxs had a clear picture of the final project. “Using Belgard’s Design Studio saves potential problems because the homeowner sees the outcome, thus avoiding misconceptions, which equals delays,” states Trahan who is using it for future products.
The whole installation took a total of four days. “Can you believe we had concrete removed, pavers installed and an outdoor kitchen completed in such a short time?” Simoneaux questions. Trahan replies, “That is the beauty of Belgard products, especially the Belgard Elements line. Everyone wants an outdoor kitchen these days. Yet a typical project with this effect can take weeks. Belgard’s Elements install in one day and the homeowner knows exactly what they will get.”
The project that was initially planned to be phased out over a number of years, due to cost, was able to be completed all at once thanks to the Belgard Preferred Payment program. “Being able to spread the cost over 12 months with same-as-cash financing was one of the factors to help us realize our dreams now,” says Simoneaux. “Our house, from the entrance to the backyard, is totally transformed. Thank you Belgard!”
