When Dave Bowers of Dave Bowers Concrete poured the footings for our new home on behalf of Joe Crowley of Connaught Homes, he mentioned that he also did patios and other work and left my wife and I his card. As the construction progressed, we had to decide on how to create the large lake-side patio below the deck on the upper floor. We explored deck boards and patio stones and then I called Bowers Concrete. Dave came over with samples of stamped concrete, available colours and pictures of work he had done. Having already done our research, we were persuaded by the cost-benefit of stamped concrete. The benefits being permanence, beauty and low maintenance – all important to us as we retire to the lake! Dave made suggestions, provided an estimate. We added in some additional work (slabs for stair landings and for the ac unit) and we came to an agreement. He and his concrete men completed the work speedily and well. We were pleased with the entire process, are delighted with the result and now have the stamped concrete patio we, our daughters and grandchildren and friends can enjoy.
