Well, we did it again! At the Marshall’s Regional Awards Ceremony, Yorkshire Pro Paving picked up Most Creative Use of Marshall’s Products and Best Driveway Transformation Over 70m. If I can take you back to that first sentence, there is a key word for us – ‘again’. That word highlights how we approach all our projects with care, quality and expertise. Every time. Awards are not targets for Yorkshire Pro Paving, they are a by-product of how we work.
We are going to look at how a project becomes an award winner, from first contact, to the photos being taken. Typically a new client would have some idea about what they want, and do some research on it. Many of our clients come to us from a ‘word of mouth’ source. There really isn’t any recommendation better than that of a happy customer. We have a good social media presence and our website is full of examples of our completed work. That first call gets the ball rolling. We survey and photograph the site at a time convenient to you. That’s where the ideas formulate. We take on your thoughts and offer ideas of our own. Together we guide the enterprise.
When we arrive on site for the first day, our expert installers would have already been briefed about the job, and work begins to prepare the site. We work alongside you right through the project. We keep mess and inconvenience to a bare minimum, and always leave the area as tidy as can be, at the end of the day. Sub-base layers, drainage, landscaping and removal of waste are completed to prepare for the final product. From this point it becomes a real team effort to get things just right. Design details, features, colours etc are refined, honed and discussed with the homeowner at every step. Now, not every client wants to be involved so much, and that is perfectly fine. We do have the skill and imagination to deliver Award Winning spaces, after all!!
Upon finalising the work we have a ‘spit and polish’ of the area. We offer advise on maintenance and taking care of the new layout, and ensure the client is happy with the project, before taking the ‘after shot’ photos to highlight the transformation.
Not every project will win an award, but every project is approached by us with the ‘Award Winning’ ethos.
Here are some kind words from the owner of our latest Award Winning Driveway-
‘I would highly recommend Yorkshire Pro Paving’
‘The job was superb from start to finish. Great advice, fantastic friendly team, and 5 Star Quality’
‘I smile every time I walk on my Drive’
We decide to submit the projects we feel best represents us and our abilities, from the past year. We work very closely with Marshall’s on all jobs where we use their product. They get to see lots of properties nationally, so when they take an interest in our work, it speaks volumes. As Award Winners we get put through to the National Awards in 2017. It gives us great pleasure to be recognised for the work we do for our customers.
