Driveway and Extensive Interlocking

Having a home that is over 40 years old, it was time for the final stage of the outside work. My husband and I have always maintained the grounds around the house, but after all these years, the property needed to be re-graded and frankly, needed to be completely renovated. In addition, the driveway was about 5 years past its lifetime and to be honest, it was rather embarrassing. We were hesitant, not knowing which contractors to call for estimates and when it came time to choose one, we wondered if we would be happy with the work and the cost involved. We did some research into various contractors and called three to provide us with ideas and estimates. It was not difficult to see that Mark Volante of Nortown Paving offered a more personal approach with some fantastic ideas and competitive pricing. Prior to the work being started and due to the deterioration of the natural gas lines and sewer issues in our area, we had many unexpected obstacles to overcome before Nortown could begin their work. Mark worked with us through all these issues and even after Nortown began their work, the gas company needed to replace the underground lines throughout our entire neighbourhood, informing us only two weeks prior to their start date. Nortown worked patiently with us, ensuring all the “neighbourhood” work was finished prior to completing our project. We had the driveway paved, outlined by interlocking stone down both sides. The stone work extended up to the front door, right to the property line and stretching to the back of the house. The end result was amazing – the workmanship superior and the “WOW” factor is far more that we hoped for. Mark informed us from Day 1 that we would be very impressed with Nortown Paving but we are far more than impressed. The cost of the project was about mid-range of the estimates we received, leading us to feel that we got far more than our money’s worth. We referred Nortown to a neighbour, who is equally impressed with the work done by Nortown on their property and have recently referred a family member. THANK YOU MARK VOLANTE AND NORTOWN PAVING –your work is art! Ian & Carol Spencer.

front porch

Nortown fixed my front porch after another contractor failed to repair their 1-year old work. They lifted my stones, fixed cement work underneath, and replaced and regrouted all the stonework. And then applied a protector coat. The workmen were clean and quick. A job well done.

asphalt driveway with stone border, flagstone garden, stone wall

Nortown Paving's owner, Sam, was very detailed and patient in explaining the scope of work involved in removing the old mutual driveway (2 layers of asphalt & concrete) and proper preparation for the new asphalt on a driveway with a turn and slope. Sam also had great design ideas for the stone work and visited the job site at each stage to ensure the work was done properly. He needn't have worried as his staff were detail oriented, efficient and professional. Details like sloping the asphalt up alittle to the cedar walls to reduce the chance of animals getting under the sunroom and setting the asphalt slightly higher now so that it will be level with the garage threshold after a few months of settling are important details that most paving contractors will not do for you or even bother. Several types of stone were used and Sam co-ordinated the colour and textures beautifully for the driveway border and garden flagstone and walls. Everything was done perfectly, on time and at reasonable price. The job site was left very clean at each stage of work. Sam made sure we understood the care requirements of new asphalt with a follow up visit. Great work. Great service. Highly recommend Nortown Paving.

Asphalt driveway & Pattern Concrete curbs, stairs, walkway and patio

We had an aging asphalt driveway and a cracked concrete walkway that needed to be replaced. I used their web site (www.nortownpaving.com) to ask for a quote for plain concrete and driveway replacement.. We received an email response followed by a phone call to set-up an appointment. Rocco came out on the weekend to price the job.

A few days before the job was planned to start, we contacted Rocco about changing to coloured and stamped concrete. Rocco and Sam came out on the weekend and we were reviewed options and agreed on the revised price.

They started the job at 7am Monday with a crew of 4 guys, including Rocco. By noon they had all of the concrete and asphalt removed and forms in place for the curbs and steps. The curbs and steps were poured and stamped by the end of the first day.

The next morning, the crew returned again at 7am, removed the form for the prior day, setup the new forms for the walkway and raised patio and concrete poured and stamped by the end of the second day.

The third day arrived shortly after 7am, removed all of the forms, power washed the concrete.

At the end of each day, the job site was left clean and tidy.

Due to lots of rain we had to wait for the driveway to be paved. Marc and his crew arrived at 7am, had the paving done by mid morning and left us a handout of do's and don'ts for newly pave driveways.

Today, Rocco returned with Marc to do some final review and touch-up and then sealed the concrete.

All in all, I was very pleased with the entire process and Rocco's and Marc's positive customer service attitude.

I highly recommend Nortown to anyone looking for Concrete or Asphalt work.

Repaved an ashphalt driveway

I knew about this company through Mimo of Forever Stone Design Inc. They informed me of when they will come and arrived on time. Marc came previously when Mimo renovated the front yard and landscape and inspected the old driveway. He came back when the job was scheduled to start and made sure his staff knew what they needed to do. He asked me to open my new garage doors to prevent any scratching and damages. I like the fact that they took care of these small but important details. They worked efficiently and finished the whole job in three hours and set up the banner so that cars won't drive onto the new driveway. Marc gave me a note for "Dos and Don'ts" after the renovation and went through that with me. The new driveway was beautifully and professionally done. Our neighbours were very impressed with their workmanship. I will not hesitate to recommend them to our friends.

Replace front driveway & retaining wall

This was a very, very good experience with a contractor for us. Nortown came when they said, did everything quickly & efficiently and left us completely satisfied with the job. Marc had creative ideas to improve on our plans and provided great customer service, coming over both before and during the job to ensure all the details were taken care of. The neighbours were very impressed with both the effort and care that went into the job. Nortown’s family-owned business approach was very reassuring and they still had all the equipment to handle our needs. All this for a price about a third lower than big name paving contractors. Highly recommended!

New ashphalt driveway

The owner of the company himself, Sam, responded to my internet request for quote and promptly set up an appointment to visit my home when it was convenient for me (on a weekend). He was the first to respond and only one of two that did so. His quote was competitive and the job was done very professionally. He left the site cleaned up with minimal mess.

Front stone walkway

Last year I had a crumbling concrete walkway removed and replaced with pavers. Both pre-sales and worker teams arrived on schedule as planned. Work was completed in no time.

Job is neat and still holding strong one year later. The path was slightly crooked (not exactly perpendicular to the curb), but hardly noticeable. They even went the extra step to help me build a makeshift retaining wall with extra pavers.

Definitely recommend.
