A Sample of a restoration project.
Sometimes a project calls for repair rather than being a brand new one.
We can work around your existing landscaping feature to fix any areas that may be damaged
 to make them look brand new and in this case below safer to walk on.

These images show the pre-restored state of these patio steps. Damage includes wood rot, missing railroad ties, and major settling of the stones. The top step was also not the same height as the rest. The steps over the years have become a tripping hazard and needed to be replaced. The existing wall on the left was stable and did not need replacing.

The original mortar is chipped away and the stones are carefully removed. Any stone that is not damaged in removal will be reused to save on waste products. The original railroad ties are removed and discarded. The final result of this step is the exposure of the original base which is ready to accept the new materials.

The new railroad tie structural frame is built to accommodate the new stone and mortar.

The new stone is arranged in a decorative pattern atop a layer of base material.

The stones are grouted with mortar and then a sponge wash is applied to wash away the excess and clean the stone
