See, the Angie's List ratings can be misleading, in terms of paver installation as it takes approximately 3 years to see the effects of a paver install done wrong. I could build a patio today and purposely do everything incorrectly - and the customer will give me a good rating because it just looks so beautiful! Yeah, they always look beautiful when they're new. Infact, when I provide prospective clients with references, I try to use jobs that are at least 3 years old, I almost never use a job we recently completed as a reference.

I'm wondering how those people came up with a 25 year warranty. I mean, what products / services are out there that are warrantied for that long? Ok, roofing shingles have 30 to 40 year warranties. Craftsman tools are warrantied forever. But just typing off the cuff I can't think of much else that has such a warranty. It seems like a huge risk for the contractor.
