Again, for those of you who did not read the first article. The most awesome project location for a concrete driveway and concrete walkway in Santa Rosa I have done in a long time. Way up on the top of Calistoga Road, on a very private 1+ mile shared driveway, past couple of gates, again past another private gate, about 300 yards to the house. Depending on the subsurface, sometimes we have to put in class II road base and compact for strength, or a sand bottom to help the moisture disperse. Not in this case. The existing circle driveway was class II road base, and even over digging there was plenty. They obviously have lived on the class II road base driveway for 20 years or so to get to the point of going ahead with this concrete driveway. Long story short, we were there a little over a week, had dug out the road base, stockpiled on site for Pat to use in the future, removed and reinstalled the brick border around the concrete walkway, installed a couple of agreed upon chase pipes (for future use of irrigation or electrical), poured the concrete driveway, sealed it the 2nd day after, and Pat and Allison stayed off it for my requested 4 days (that gives us normally 90% strength). It’s a shame we come and go so fast in our business world, only in writing this do I recognize the awesomeness of the site and the clients. Yes, I said thanks and was (am) very great full for them, and Pat sent me an email telling me how great their experience was with us, but only in writing this to you do I get the pleasure of reliving the experience with them.
I have cut and pasted his remarks here (now I am shamelessly promoting myself) Ron, I gave the check to Randy this morning. Come up to take pictures whenever you like. I’m eager to see the finished product when everything is cleaned up, but it looked good to me this morning. Thank you for being so prompt and reliable. It is a pleasure to deal with a contractor who does what he says he’ll do when he says he’ll do it.
