Definite effect at first stumble..

Original builder cheeped out, left us years later with shifting sections, cracks, as well as dumbly setting the porch supports on moveable slab sections...

We took bids, priced concrete, stamped concrete, pavers, ended up with a local paver crew, who included a new foundation segment for the porch as well as two drives, front walkway... Best thing we ever have done for the front yard, and then some simple re-landscaping.. Just have to find that trustworthy fellow to do the work.. The big name paver pushers were horrible, more interested in pushing their financing plans than doing the work.. Advantage of having the means, I suppose..
