    I honestly thought this was a Homeowner job when I first looked at it...I didn;t think a "contractor" would actually do such a thing....

    Brick pillars on the house too were done by a "Mason"....what a shame

    Wow I can't believe people get away with that! I wonder if they are still in business?

    Watch that first step, it's a doozy. In all seriousness can you post the address for that house, I might have to go and "accidentally" trip.

    The worst part about this job was I asked the homeowner where the guy who did it was and if he tried to call him about warranty, and the owners answer was "I don't even want to deal with him"

    I get where he is coming from but seriously I would be pissed and want my money back or enough time for me to at least yell at him and spit in his face. If we have a single paver shift after install the owners are all over it calling us and wanting us to fix it!

    Had to look at this yard the other day after getting a phone call saying we built a wall last year and it fell over so now we need it done right. It was so funny how right to the point he was. They glued all of the blocks together so it all fell over in one piece and looks like a walkway now.

    I actually love repair jobs, so I have a million pictures of them. There is no shortage of crap hardscapers over here, and there is very little competition when it comes to advertising repair work.

    Horrible mess, that even I wouldn't touch....since the HO didn't have 20 grand for a complete rebuild.
