Why You Should Leave Outdoor Step Creation to the Professionals

Posted on September 13, 2017

Jerry Cataldo is not only an expert landscaper in Needham and the greater Boston area, but he also specializes in superior masonry work. Customers return to us year after year with new projects because of our stellar performance, and we can’t appreciate it enough! As a homeowner, we can understand the initial appeal of considering tackling some masonry projects like outdoor steps without professional help, but we can think of three essential reasons you should give a business like Cataldo a call:

Preparation and design

New England faces extremely hot and cold weather throughout the year, and your ground preparation can mean the difference between your steps standing the test of time and falling apart in just a few seasons. On top of prep, creating a design that works with your landscape and your home can be difficult without a trained, professional eye.

Materials and knowledge

Depending on your style and landscape needs, a particular stone might be desired, and professionals like those at Cataldo can help you identify the ideal material. Without the years of practice and knowledge, your final material decision could leave you with a slippery surface to walk on, a stone that cannot withstand the elements and more.

Local codes and regulations

In addition to expert knowledge and practice, local codes and regulations must be followed and not every DIY homeowner has the ability to fulfill these requirements. Choosing a business like Cataldo means ensuring all laws and building codes are met and maintained throughout the entirety of your project.

What are you waiting for? It might be the beginning of fall, but there is still plenty of time to get in contact with Cataldo Landscape and Masonry to set up a consultation for your next project!
