Driveway and sidewalk replacement look great!

After researching our options for replacing our driveway and sidewalk, we chose Freehold. From the initial estimate to completion of the project, their team was efficient, coordinated and careful. The cleanup left everything neat and tidy. We highly recommend this company, what a great team!

Full Yard Transformation and quality of life increase!

Short version, WOW!! I was more than happy to hand over payment, HIRE Freehold… Keep reading for the long story.
I had a very large landscape project to do, I needed to make the entire yard wheelchair accessible, this included the following.
Rip out old wooden deck, ramp and replace with concreate patio and ramp, pave the entire backyard, pave side of the house, add in a new front walkway, poor pad for wheelchair lift, remove part of old paved sidewalk, remove old paved wheelchair pad. It was a lot and I was very worried due to the scope and cost.
I had a few quotes done, with ideas ranging from paving stones for everything, stamped concreate, aggregate concrete, with various costs associated.
I had used Freehold before about 8 years ago and they did a great job, to be honest I didn’t have them on my first round of quotes as I was also going to do some fence work and was looking at getting everything done at once, due to the price of wood skyrocketing I decided to focus on just the paving, as such I dug up an old email and gave them a call.
Daniel came out, I showed him what I wanted to do, what I needed for access, my concerns with slope, not wanting it to look like a parking lot, along with other concerns that came up in the other quotes. He was great, very straight forward and made excellent suggestions. He wrote up a quote, I was able to make changes easily and get a very quick response. The project was huge and so was the quote, but I needed it done and based on the other quotes it was very reasonable Having used them before and reading some reviews of the other contractors, I picked FreeHold.
Due to the size of the project I had to wait about 2 months for the work to start, it was going to take 3 days plus drying time.
About 2 weeks before the start date Daniel came by to review the project, this was great as it was reassurance for the work that would be taking place, timelines and a better idea of the process.
The magical day arrived, Daniel and the crew arrived just after 7am and started to do their thing, Dylan the owner also came by which was also reassuring, I was very nervous, I was able go over one last time with both Daniel and Dylan, made a few small changes and away they went. I was only able to stay in the house for the morning on the first day as both entrances would be removed.
So many great things that I saw and the amount of work was huge, these are some of the highlights out of so many.
1) The Crew was professional, fast and cleared out a lot of yard, it was a sight to see
2) They kept the area and road clean, sweeping up as needed
3) I received updates and pictures to finalize some key areas for access, this was important due to the wheelchair and access.
4) I came by to watch the second day, as they were putting forms in, again a sight to see, at this point I was able to see things come together, again crew was professional and friendly.
5) They were careful as they poured, I watched them wipe down the doors and clean up splashes, as they went along.
6) They have a person come by and clean up after, removing the forms, sweeping all the poured area and more, fixing and cleaning anything they can see. I didn’t expect this at all, they also fixed some grading in the ally that connected to the pad, again above and beyond
7) Walk through with Dylan on the following Monday, I had a few areas of concern all addressed right away and had the general fixit person (Sorry I don’t recall his name) come by to take care of a few items.
The best way to sum up this project is that I was very happy to hand over the payment, I feel I got more than what I paid for with the amount of work that was done along with items that are hard to apply a monitory value such as the service, professionalism and the little extras that I never expected, above and beyond everyday, and giving me something that I have been waiting 8 years for.
Being able to finally use and access my whole property from my wheelchair, is emotional and a huge game changer for me!! They nailed the whole project.
Danial, Dylan and the team are superstars, I can’t thank them enough… Oh ya they should be at the top of any list.

Stamped Concrete Patio

Daniel and the guys at Freehold were great from day one getting the quote. The price didn't change and they started the day they scheduled it. They were also quick with responding to any questions. The finished patio looks better than we expected and we would hire them again in a second, just earlier next time (something to be said for a company with a wait to get started).

Thanks again.

Garage Pad

Dealing with the company proved to be difficult, as there were many challenges along the way. Although it took longer to get things completed then we would have liked (including needing to bring them back in to repair the badly damaged concrete surface after approx. 1 year), in the end they delivered a good product. Hopefully they have solved their spalling concrete issue and others won't have to deal with it going forward!

It's important to understand that in concrete we are only as good as the product delivered. Our ready mix suppliers of the world are not flawless and a small percentage of mix designs have problems, regardless of the company name at the head of the project.

We spent $3800 having your spalling garage pad professionally overlayed so we could do right by our customers, no questions asked. The only thing deserving of a 7/10 in our business dealings was your hostile treatment of our project manager when you notified us of your issues.

It goes to show that we do right by our customers regardless of who they are.

Walkway replacement

Freehold Concrete replaced our walkway to the front doorstep and around one side of the house.
Daniel, the project manager, was attentive to our questions and dealt with all of our concerns. He and his team were hardworking and efficient.
The job was finished on time and looks great.
These guys were very professional. My wife and I recommend them.

Sidewalk and Patio Concrete Install

Dylan, Daniel and team at Freehold Concrete excelled in providing consistent quality work throughout our sidewalk and stamped concrete patio install last month. The entire project (even with all the normal construction activities) was a pleasure from design to final finish. We are thrilled with our new outdoor living space. The construction crew was reliable and professional in arriving on schedule and not rushing. I believe Dylan employs some of the very best. The guys asked for our feedback often. Small improvements were made immediately with no issues. The attention to detail, plus the suburb quality of the finished project speaks to the satisfaction the entire team takes in their workmanship. Our family wholeheartedly recommend Freehold Concrete.

Patio

We had our patio done by Freehold Concrete. Through no fault of Dylan the project went sideways- the concrete supplier poured the wrong colour cement. Not just a little off colour but pinky/orange terra cotta instead of beige/grey. The way Dylan handled the situation was amazing. Very professional and efficient. His positive relationship with his suppliers allowed the mistake to be corrected seamlessly. The wrong colour cement was removed quickly and the right colour poured. We are so pleased with the end result and would use Freehold concrete again.

Thank you for taking the time to share this story Lynn. I vividly remember where I was when you called that morning to say the concrete being placed was "terra cotta", oh boy!
