Unsolicited Testimonials – You Die for Them!

I had the most delightful surprise today!

We’ve been busy with jobs and life for so many months, accompanied of course, by the estimates given thought that time as well.

Today, Scott completed a job here locally, in St. Cloud with about 100 linear feet.  Our clients, without encouragement, reached out to us afterwards and gave us a very positive testimonial.  Non-solicited, and so much appreciated!  I thanked them and then posted the testimonial to our website.  You can see it here for yourself: https://curbappealborders.com/testimonials/

This article isn’t about us really, but what it means to people when you appreciate their work, and their efforts.

If anyone in your life does a good job for you, please take the time to share your thoughts.  A little kindness and a few moments of your day can make a huge difference in someone’s life.  Take advantage of it!

Sincerely,

Joan Bailey

Wife of Owner/Operator of Curb Appeal Concrete Landscaping Borders

Best Curbing Sealer

BEFORE..,

BEFORE..,

We have all witnessed the damage the time and environment can put on concrete. Quite often one of the most important steps, curing and sealing, is overlooked in the project.  However, you as the homeowner, have options.  You simply need to visit your local hardware store and ask the question.  I’m sure that they’ll tell you about the best concrete sealer that they have in stock. I call these “over-the-counter” sealants, but in the long run, you will need to reapply them at least twice a year.  Does this really save you money?

Over the past 18+ years, we’ve tried many products, but what we found to be the best sealant for our concrete landscaping borders comes straight from the commercial end of the industry – Lambert UV Super Seal.  You can’t get this at your local Home Depot or Lowe’s, we purchase it in 5 gallon containers directly from the manufacturer.

UV Protection

UV Protection

These products are applied at specific timing after the  concrete has been placed (usually within 24 hours, but not immediately) and form a resin-layer that both, helps curing with the prevention of too much water loss and creates a film that leaves the project more durable and protects the beauty of the surface.

We’ve seen many of our competitors apply sealer immediately, as well as water-down their over-the-counter sealants so they can push it through their store-bought sprayers.  But Curb Appeal Concrete Borders has invested money into commercial sprayers so that the product does not need to be watered down, it is sprayed directly on your finished product – usually within 24 hours of installation.  You get your money’s worth with us.

Florida weather has a brutal effect on everything – including the concrete product.  Without proper care, you will see mold, mildew and even tannin or rust water stains all over unprotected borders.  By applying a proper sealant, your borders could last for years without the need for cleaning.

We have found this particular product to be the best in protection for your borders – keeping the elements from permanently attaching to your curbing.  Curb Appeal Concrete Landscaping Borders will be happy to treat our newly installed borders with a protective barrier to keep your product looking great for years! Simply ask us!

Want to Gain Control of your Lawn?

I must admit that this season has been incredibly busy!  So I’m just checking in to show you some photographs of our latest work this past week.    For the job on the left, we were hired on by a Master Builder for a project in the Dr. Phillips area.  It was a large job, so we had to prove that we had insurance and workers’ comp for them – no problem!  Curb Appeal Concrete Landscaping Borders has been established since 1998, completely insured!

Kilgore Pavers

We showed up on time and completed the job as agreed.  I do want to point out that the pavers were installed by another company, but just look at that straight line!  Isn’t that great!  The homeowners were extremely happy, so we were too!

Another photo from a job a few days prior that I wanted to show you was on a sidewalk.   Simply artistic and beautiful, as well as manageable for lawn mowers.  It keeps the mulch in, and the grass out!  This particular design, I believe, enhances to landscaping and “frames” everything beautifully!

Owners elected to paint the curbs with Driveway Paint, which can be any color that the homeowner chooses! Note: Don't use concrete stain!

New “After” Photographs

We had some things to do in town on Friday, January 1, 2016.  Roads were pretty clear in the morning, so after the errands we decided to visit one of the homes that we had done curbing for.  We knew that the homeowners were supposed to add landscaping and rocks after our borders were put in, but WOW, was I surprised to see how the pictures came out after everything was done.  It’s unusual that we get to see the finished product, but I’m sure you’ll agree, this looks great!

Owners elected to paint the curbs with Driveway Paint, which can be any color that the homeowner chooses!  Note:  Don't use concrete stain!

Owners elected to paint the curbs with Garage Floor Paint, which can be any color that the homeowner chooses! Note: Don’t use concrete stain!

Just because we install the borders doesn’t mean that we’re not willing to help and point you in the right directions to save a few dollars. In this case, the homeowners went to a local paint store and purchased Garage Floor Paint (don’t ever buy concrete stain), and they ordered a color that enhanced their home, and made their borders blend in wonderfully, which saved them money in the long run!  Now their landscaping looks like a piece of art!

Garage Floor paint contains sealant, which protects your borders from mold, mildew, etc., but you only have to apply the paint in one coat! It is made for smooth concrete, and holds its’ color for many years.  Not only does this save money, but it protects the borders, keeping the color intact for many years!

For those of you who do not want to physically paint your borders, we also offer color added to the mix, and we do offer a commercial brand sealant – better than what you can buy at your local hardware store.  It’s your choice!

Beautiful design on existing asphalt driveway.

This was actually the first time for me seeing the borders placed on asphalt as opposed to concrete driveways or sidewalks, and I have to admit, I was impressed!  This looks so wonderful!  Don’t you agree?

The homeowners did a beautiful job, and I would be proud to say that Curb Appeal Concrete Landscaping Borders, LLC helped make the Curb Appeal of this home even better!

Keeps mulch in (or in this case, gravel), and grass OUT!
