Right now, my review may be premature. However, let’s call this the customer service review, and when I update when the work is done, I will review the work.
First off, I spoke to 4 companies about pavers in the last 3 months, as the size job I have is a big expense. It will be roughly 5-6k sq. ft in pavers total. First company I contacted gave me an insane price, but I was not thrilled with the pressure to rush me to do it. And it was a cash price that was unbeatable really (but cheapest is not always best), and it was cash that I would of come out of savings for that I’m really hoping not to spend, so I’ve opted to go through the Ygrene program through the county that finances these providing you have enough equity in your home. Not all contractors are signed up through YGrene, although I think it’s a great thing to put on your website to attract people that don’t have the cash for these jobs, but are qualified to finance it… big selling point. Story with that, is LPG was not on the list, but they are black diamond certified, so I asked them if they would sign up for the program and they did! Imagine that, a company that GOES OUT OF THEIR WAY to accomodate?!
The 2nd company I got a quote from was roughly the same price as quoted by LPG, but I feel that I connected with LPG and they offer what I need, so they are it. The 3rd company basically was charging me QUADRUPLE of what any company was. I’m not sure where they got off doing that, but they did. I had to laugh. The company I was supposed to meet with after LPG to get the final quote, as I wanted 5 – well, I just cancelled that. No need to look any further.
And lets talk about the initial appt. to get a quote. Stan, called within 12 hours of me inquiring, maybe less, considering I inquired in the evening through Belgard Pavers website. Stan showed up and my husband and I immediately wanted to become friends with him. He was sweet, funny, knowledgeable and loved our property, so had offered up Haley\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\’s design expertise. Simply just the kind of sales guy you want. Not pushy, not too salesy, just down to earth and truly stood behind the product and company he was representing! I like that! And he just bragged and bragged about Haley, who I will be meeting this week, I believe, and am very excited to meet her and begin this process. I know this is going to make our property just insane! I will post a review once work is finished. But, needless to say, I went with them. Professional, great choice of materials, pricing competitively priced, in fact better than most. I was so excited about all of this, I called Stan this morning and told him I wanted to turn our roughly 3500 square foot project into a 6500 square foot project. Needless to say I am excited.
