Our warranty sheet is seperate from our proposal.

Proposals say "x many years warranty, blah, blah, blah.....(see warranty sheet for details).

I have the same question. Looking to get into hardscaping this year. When you say that you warranty your job (retainig wall, paver work, etc) what are the details of what or how much? For example...pavers will not sink more than 1/4" in one or more areas? Retainig wall will not move more than *** .

ummm....pavers should NEVER "sink", with the exception of movement during winter freeze cycles...

ICPI says that all interlocking concrete pavers should settle approx 1/16" over the entire system over time. Thats why they recommend finishing the pavement a 1/16 higher than other obstacles that you meet.

OK...pretend I am the customer....Mr Landscaper, you tell me that you warranty your hardscaping work for 2 yrs. What is it exactly that you are guaranteeing and what is the criteria of what is acceptable or not. ( I believe the answer to this is what the original post was wanting for clarification)

6 year warranty against all flat work from settling or sinking more than 1/4" over 8 ft, also covers walls and steps for the same (yada, yada) and against all walls from failure due to installers workmanship (blah, blah) It really is not that tough. Tell your attorney the main points and he will add the boiler plate to fill it in.
