Our Shoreline house was aging badly, and aside from other fix ups,
the most glaring and hazardous problem was the driveway. It was 50 years old concrete and had worn and segmented in three places. Ultimately it was unusable and dangerous to drive or walk
Upon the completion of work provided by Art Church we were astonished at the transformation of the entire approach to the house. Per my requests and guidelines, Art Church put down the perfect double wide driveway where before we only had a single parking pad. They leveled out the upper part nearest the garage making slight of the former steep hill. You can actually wash or work on a car in the drive now. Awesome!
In addition to the driveway, I had asked for a retaining wall down the length of the drive to shore up runoff from the adjoining front yard slope, and redefine the width of the driveway to accommodate double parking. This would also match the neighbors retaining wall opposite, changing the look of the drive to much better symmetry.
What they completed for the wall blew away my highest hopes and was better than anything I had imagined. The integration of the wall and driveway is flawless and extremely visually appealing. Integral draining scuppers at the wall base are clean and unobtrusive.
Now the front yard is level with fill behind the wall and actually added usable footage to the yard via leveling!
They were very careful around the trees we wished to keep during the process. As well, the work was very fast and cleanup looked great. Aside from the artistry in poured aggregate, I was very appreciative that Art Church took ownership of the project including all aspect of permitting, verifying city requirements and handling any questions we had along the way.
I highly recommend Art Church and we are very appreciative of the overall value for our money.
My duplex had two decks off the back sliding doors that were rotting and falling apart. Art Church Inc removed the two old decks and installed concrete patios with steps. The new patios with steps are gorgeous and really updated the look of these patio areas. What a transformation! Not only did they update the look of the house but they will last much longer than a wood deck. The work was done quickly and professionally. The duplex was occupied by tenants and the crew was able to complete the work without disturbing the tenants. I absolutely love the look and highly recommend their work!
