the patio has quite a bit of age to it.

So, if a contractor did the work - then shame on them.

But if it was a home owner that did the work - Then maybe they didn't do all that bad.

I read about those new cantilever stone patios but haven't seen one until now. Amazing work!!! You should send it in to Modern Marvels.

It is a little over a year old. Installed by a local contractor. Who might be getting sued out of business. It is built over a spring w/ no drainage!

Anybody that does work like that should be sued, should be out of business, and should be put in jail. Community service maybe.

I would sentence him to have to work (for free) underneath the contractor who fixes it. Sued and put out of business!!
