Like in any industry, doing your homework before hiring a contractor is vital. It's always important to find out if your contractor is properly licensed through the state, is fully insured, has a great reputation with his past clients, etc. It's also incredibly important to make sure they're properly trained for the task you're asking them to perform. This couldn't be more true when hiring a paver sealing contractor in the Sarasota area.
At least twice a week I meet with homeowners who made the mistake of hiring their handyman, painter or pressure washer to seal their brick paver driveway or patio. Nine times out of ten that contractor had no idea what he was doing. He simply went to a big box store, bought the cheapest concrete sealer he could find and then rolled it on to their pavers. The result, as you can imagine, is always horrific! The worst part is these homeowners now have to pay someone else to strip that cheap sealer off and start over.
A lot of times these homeowners are calling me less than a year after they had their pavers sealed by these guys and are upset that the sealant has already worn away. Of course their handyman did not put any warranty on his work and, not surprisingly, he's not returning their phone calls anymore.
Here at Island Exteriors, it's a completely different experience. Not only are the simple things of being fully licensed and insured taken care of, with over 20 years experience in the hard surface restoration industry, there's nothing we haven't seen and conquered. I've always been a very firm believer in "specialization"...Pick one thing, learn as much as you absolutely can about it, and become better at it than anybody else! That's why we focus all of our attention on paver sealing and restoration. You'll never see our guys pressure washing roofs and siding. Nor will we be painting your family room or replacing the faucet in your kitchen. We also strongly focus on staying extremely local. With our office centrally located on Longboat Key, we normally only work on the island as well as Anna Maria, Lido, Bird Key, Siesta Key, Sarasota and Bradenton. One, this ensures a phenomenal response time to our clients. It always drives me nuts when contractors show up late to my home and that's why one of our promises is that we will be on time, every time, to your home. It also helps us keep our prices reasonable by not wasting fuel and manhours driving all over southwest Florida.
When you work with Island Exteriors, you can expect the best of everything. Incredible customer service sits right next to highly trained technicians on the top of our list. Our entire restoration process is environmentally friendly. As a Longboat Key resident, that's very important to me. To seal your pavers, we only use a commercial grade, water based sealant. This is all backed up by an industry leading warranty of 3 years. No other paver sealing contractor in the state of Florida offers a 3 year warranty on their work.
