Anyone other than myself observant enough to see a flaw on the Techo-Bloc catalog?

    Yep!

    The 2006 Techo-Bloc catalog's cover job shows poor quality craftsmanship.

    Has anyone else noticed this (on their own WITHOUT me creating this post)?

    My small company has been in the paver business for 11 years (+). And we strive for quality, perfection, and CRAFTSMANSHIP.

    So I do a sales presentation for a prosepective clients - and I have a large portfolio of our work and of the construction process showing what we do and why we do it.

    LOL - But....I use the cover of the '06 Techo catalog to explain what we WILL NOT do!

    Who here is aware of / or can find the flaw that I'm referring to?

    there was a paverstone ad in the mags last year i posted on here.

    it was a wall with steps built into it.... one of the worst jobs i have seen in quite a while.

    Andrew - If you think that is bad, check out the '06 EP Henry catalog. Some of the jobs in there are monstrosities.

    What about the edge of the walkway near the bottom of the photo? You could lose a child in those gaps.

    get yourself a Techo-Bloc catalog.

    It's the soldier course, it was laid without trimming so on the curves of the walkway there are gaps (in the soldier course).
