ICPI certified? Nah....

This company annoys me. They aggressively advertise that they are ICPI certified. Their builds suggest something else to me. What do you think?

Doesn't look like anything special. More importantly, how did you get so close to someone else's job?

whats wrong with it? ICPI is an easy certification to get and keep if you want to pay for it.

This business has been through three owners. I believe the original owner obtained the certification, and it's just been carried through the others.

What's wrong? Pretty sure sub-adequate base, base not extending much beyond the steel landscape edging used as edge restraint. In short, one of those patios that looks great for the first year, maybe two, but settlement issues will follow shortly thereafter.

The angle of photograghy doesnt show enough for me to comment yay or nay on the work. Take some better pictures.

I'm not a believer in ICPI. Haven't renewed my membership in eons, and have no intentions of doing so. I dont need ICPI to prove myself to anyone, my charm, our work, and reputation speaks for itself. As man ages, we become less concerned with going out of our way to prove ourselves.

The reason I do not support ICPI is because many of their so called certificate holders do subpar work. How can one support an organization that supports just any Tom, Dick, or Harry with a credit card or check made out to ICPI?

And to the topic creator, I havent seen your user name in this forum before, how do we know your work is better?
