We will maintain and repair hardscapes we've installed in and around Northbrook, Glencoe, and Barrington, IL.

We take care of the maintenance needs of patios, walkways, and driveways as well as handle repairs.

The deck of this Northbrook home is being resurfaced.

All home improvement projects come with built-in maintenance needs, especially those that serve highly trafficked areas such as patios, walkways, and driveways. Weight and pressure are placed on individual pavers, stone slabs, and steps leading to the need for some minor repair.

Hiring the same professional crew to maintain a project they originally built has distinct advantages. We offer our maintenance and repair services in Northbrook, and other nearby communities like Glencoe and Barrington, IL.

Benefits That Come with Hiring the Same Company for Maintenance & Repairs

There are a number of advantages to hiring the same company to return to your property for maintenance and repairs.

Benefits include:

  • You will have professionals that you are already familiar with handling your needs
  • Our team will have prior knowledge of the project and original construction process
  • You will have consistent quality service from planning to completion & beyond
  • There will be added accountability

Our Repair Services Include Paver/Stone Repair, Leveling, Edge Adjustments, & More

While your project is being designed and built, our team gladly offers tips and suggestions for maintenance and care. When issues arise, we have the experience to resolve them to bring back the perfect look of the initial result.

Pavers, flagstones, and bricks are usually connected together using joint mortar or other compounds to achieve a level, flush surface area. In time, joints can crack, pavers can bulge up or sink, and edges can shift.

Our professionals offer the following services:

  • Replacing Broken Pavers - Pavers can crack or break leading to the need for new materials. We can perfectly match the original build and expertly replace broken pavers.
  • Fix Sunken & Unlevel Spots - Even when installed with proper leveling, compacting, and grading, decorative pavers & stones can sink. Our team knows how to properly reinstall new pieces to bring back the flush, level surface you deserve.
  • Adjust Edging - The edges of your patio, walkway, or driveway can become uneven after shifting and movement occurs. We can restore the original clean, neat looking edges with which your project was built.

Cleaning & Sealing Services Protect & Extend the Life of Hardscape Surfaces

The homeowner of this Glencoe patio opted to have us perform water based cleaning and sealing.

Homeowners and business will need to protect their investments with proper cleaning and sealing treatments. We can manage both needs with professionalism and care to ensure that you get the maximum lifespan out of the construction and materials used. Having professional tools, brushes, and cleaning chemicals make all the difference.

Walkways, driveways, patios, and fire pit areas composed of decorative stone or pavers can be sealed to provide a clean shine that prevents fading or staining.

When providing our sealing and cleaning services, we use two types of products, water based and solvent based. Each cleaning and sealing method is designed to protect against wear and tear and provide stain resistance.

Both are capable of getting the job done properly, but offer distinct advantages/disadvantages:

Water Based

  • Low Volatile Organic Compound - Reduced inhalation risk from chemical odors
  • Matte Finish - Produces a more subtle, less shiny look
  • Low Odor - Gives off noticeably fewer odors during application
  • Easier Clean-up - Excess water-based sealants/cleaners are easier to clean up and dispose of
  • Re-Application - Should be reapplied every 3 to 5 years

Solvent Based

  • High Volatile Organic Compound - Produces higher levels of chemical odors while drying
  • Wet Finish - Leaves a “wet,” shiny look when dried
  • High Odor - Gives off a distinct chemical smell during application
  • Difficult Clean-up - Excess solvent is more difficult to clean up, requiring extra care
  • Re-Application - Should be reapplied every 5 to 10 years

Did you know that the sealing process makes cleaning easier? Both processes go hand in hand.
