Front Driveway And Tricky Steps

Customer reference for Curragh Stone as told to pickapro by Derek Nolan from Walkinstown, Dublin 12 on 23-Feb-2013

When was the work done?
The work was done in October, 2012.

What was involved?
We had done a big extension in the summer of 2012 and the last house project that needed doing was the driveway. We wanted the driveway to be done with cobblelock paving. We had been concerned about how steps could be done leading up to the front door because our house is quite high compared to that of the garden. We were able to get the steps done in such a way that solved the problen and you can access those same steps from any angle.

How did you choose James Maloney?
I was busy ringing around getting quotations and met with about four guys to talk to them about our job. We just had a good feeling about James. We felt that James was the right guy for the right job, at the right price.

Had you definite ideas in mind before you talked to James Maloney?
We had a fair idea in that we knew that we wanted a granite cobblelock surround but we were open to suggestions.

Did James introduce new ideas?
James was very creative in his outlook, He not only came up with the design for the cobblelock but was also very creative in how he fixed our front steps situation. That ticked all the boxes for us.

How did the project run?
The project ran very well. We live on a busy corner with a lot of traffic so James had to get stuck right in but not make a mess. James came, he went and we got a good job done. James did the work to a high, professional standard and we're very happy with it. No complaints.

What was the biggest benefit to you of using James Maloney?
The biggest benefit was that we paid our money, he provided a good service and everyone was happy. James was also very competitive in his pricing which always helps. Another plus was his availability, we never had to chase James down, he always made himself available to us.

What's your favourite part now?
I like it all, it has good balance.

Would you recommend James Maloney to others?
I wouldn't have any problems recommending James to anyone. James is the kind of guy that if there was ever a problem, you just give him a ring and he'd be back to get it sorted. You can't put a price on that.

Any tips for other people?
I think it's very important to see firsthand work that's been carried out. James had done 2-3 jobs in our area, he called those people and arranged for us to go out and see the work and speak to his clients. Seeing previous work in the flesh is a lot different from describing something.
