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.
