    Paver Brands - New Install in NJ

    We are doing pavers. We are going with Belgard. I am trying to decide between the Montecido color or the Victorian color. Anyone have any opinions on those?

    Sealing the Concrete?

    I don't want to hijack the thread, but I am also looking at what to do with sealing my pavers and natural stone. I have quartzite flagstone coping and some of it will also be used in areas of my decking along with pavers. I am hoping to use a sealer that will both protect well, but also enhance...

    Seal or not my flagstone coping

    I have quartzite flagstone coping. When dry it looks very dull and not very colorful. When wet, it is beautiful. We will also be incorporating flagstone into parts of the decking. It has been suggested to me to that if I seal the flagstone, it will get the same darker look that would pull the...

    New Build in SoCal - Pebble tomorrow, Start up Saturday

    Boy did things slow down after the gunite. Right now my backyard looks like a warzone. Because of the tight space in my yard, they only stubbed the plumbing prior to gunite. Now they have gone in and trenched it. The plumbing, electrical and gas are not all lined in the trenches. We can't do...
