"When we decided to get our driveway done we looked into several methods
(concrete, stamped concrete & pavers) After some research, our
hearts were set on getting pavers if we could find a contractor with
lots of experience & that was affordable. That proved to be quite a
challenge. Several contractors would give us quotes but could not
gives us referrals & addresses where we could go see their work.
The ones that did, were either very expensive or the jobs that we went
to look at were not to our liking.
When we finally found Seattle
Driveway & Patio we were very impressed. This is a family run
business that specialize in installing pavers. Teresa & Walter are a
very nice couple. She takes care of the administration & he takes
care of the crew. Right away we could tell they knew what they were
doing. They provided us with several referrals & addresses to see
their work. We were really pleased with what we saw & we even spoke
with one of the customer who was washing his car in his driveway when
we went to see his driveway. He was beaming with pride & rightfully
so. The job had been done 8 months earlier & it looked great!
were not the cheapest quote we got but not the most expensive either.
They were the ones we felt we could trust the most so we gave them the
job. I wanted a very specific design & they were very patient with
me & took the time to make sure they understood exactly what I
They started right away & finished the whole job in
10 days. Except for a few days, Walter was on site himself supervising
the work. It was a bit nerve racking as it was a big investment for us
& we wanted to make sure it came out great. Because of the design
we chose & that are driveway & walkways were not straight &
flat there were a lot of unusual cuts that needed to be made. It needed
a good eye, a steady hand & a good artistic sense. It could have
easily turned into a catastrophe. But the workers were patient &
allowed my husband to be involved in the areas that were a bit more
tricky. They made sure the cuts were made to his satisfaction.
also had a hard time deciding what kind of sand we were going to use.
Walter was patient & flexible. The only thing we were not quite
happy with is that they did not use a protective pad between the metal
plate of the machine & the pavers when they packed down the pavers.
That left noticeable marks on some of the pavers. The marks are
gradually dissipating but are still visible. When we researched it
after the fact we found out that it could have been prevented by them
using a protective pad.
Despite that, I could not give them less
then 5 stars as they did a fantastic job, they are very service
oriented & responsive. We would definitely hire them again &
highly recommend them. It was a big investment for us but we love it
& we do not regret it one bit. Thanks to Walter & Teresa of
Seattle Driveway & Patio!"

"Last year, we had Seattle Driveway and Patio come out and give us an
estimate for our fairly large driveway and walkway in Kirkland. We had
an oversized large maple tree that was destroying our driveway. They
gave us a very reasonable price and we were absolutely thrilled with the
result! We even had a couple of changes we suggested mid-way through
the job and they were able to accommodate us. The workers always arrived
on time, and when they couldn't work because of rain, I received an
email about when they would be back, usually the next day. They are very
professional and did a fantastic job. Our driveway was the talk of the
neighborhood! This year, we had them back out to add a side
walkway and backyard patio with steps to an outbuilding. Again, we are
so happy to have what was once a dirt and stump filled mess turn into a
beautiful, usable space. They took out several dump trucks full of dirt,
a huge stump and chiseled away at an immovable boulder to create a
level space. We hired them twice over the past two years and I think
that speaks volumes. There are not too many companies or contractors
that I would hire a second time. It's hard to find decent companies with
honest workers and I have to say that this is one company we are happy

"Teresa, Walter and their team were fabulous to work with, and did a
fantastic job on our patio! They were incredibly efficient, pleasant,
professional, and reasonably priced to boot. I was really impressed
with the whole process - and we absolutely love our new patio! I would
definitely use them again if we have any paving needs. :) "
Laura T, Seattle WA
"I am a pretty picky person when it comes to the quality of work I
expect. I am an experienced re-modeler and primarily I do remodeling
projects myself and when I do hire contractors I hold them to the same
high standards that I hold for myself. Several past contractors have
failed to meet my bar. Seattle driveway and patio however did an
excellent job. They came and removed an existing poured cement slab,
resurfaced the area, prepped it for pavers, and placed 340 square feet
of interlocking pavers. Their prep work was top notch and exactly as I
would have done myself with no cutting corners. During layout I
had one issue with how they had sloped part of the patio to accommodate
an existing shed. The crew was responsive, immediately understood what
I wanted instead, and quickly set to work making the change. No fuss
no muss. Would hire again and would recommend."
Brian C, Seattle WA
"Teresa, Walter and crew were amazing. They communicated often, gave
us a fair bid and stuck with it. We had them do permeable pavers to
create a backyard patio, and well, several months later we are STILL so
happy with their work. They were prompt, diligent, polite and easy to
deal with. We are hoping to hire them again for our next project."
Diana K, Seattle WA
could not be more thrilled with how our driveway turned out! Teresa,
Walter, and team were amazing! Short version: Do not hesitate to
utilize their services! You will NOT be disappointed! Long
version: Our home was built in the 1920's, and the driveway to the
garage was SUPER steep. We drive a low to the ground electric car, so we
really needed to be able to get into the garage in order to park the
car. My engineer-amazing husband calculated a way to slightly
curve the driveway and used spray paint to indicate what the path of the
driveway needed to be. They happily took on the challenge! The got rid
of all the cracked old concrete, laid a great foundation, and then got
to work with the pavers. They managed to make our driveway not only
beautiful, but also functional!!! We also had a drain issue
which they helped us to resolve to ensure that our garage does not get
any water inside it. They were quick to respond, professional, friendly,
and most importantly, did FANTASTIC work. THANK YOU! Highly
recommend to anyone looking to add a little more pop (or functionality!)
to their driveways, walkways, or patios."
Mandy M, Seattle WA
"Outstanding! Couldn't be more pleased with our new walkway and driveway.
Thank you Walter, Teresa and crew! Everything was as promised, when
promised. Clean, professional and thorough. We live on a very step hill
and they installed drainage and a dry well and laid a pipe under for our
lighting cords. Absolutely amazing. Totally stoked."
Chris C, Seattle WA
responsive and professional small company. Walter and Teresa followed
up with us every step of the way, made adjustments to the work in
progress at our request, and the crew left our driveway MUCH cleaner
than it was when they arrived. The pavers look fantastic and the hidden
concrete edging is a nice touch. I also want to mention that SD&P
were willing to use a product outside of their catalog to better match
the pavers we already had in place. My only suggestion, as with all
contractors, is that you-- the consumer-- stay involved, check materials
when they are delivered, and ask questions. If you stay on top of it,
you will be very satisfied with the results!"
Julia R, Seattle WA
"Our drive way is truly amazing. They where very professional, fast and
did everything they said they would do. It transformed the look of our
house. I highly recommend them you won't be disappointed."
Amber S, Bellevue WA
"I've always had bad experiences when it comes to landscapers or any
exterior home improvement companies. I have been shafted before with
shady landscaping companies over-promising and under-delivering (scam
artists, I call them). So after obtaining about a dozen bids on
building a patio and sidewalk, the very last company I contacted was
Seattle Driveway & Patio.
Theresa and Walter came out the
same day to assess our needs and gave us a quote, right then and there!
They were well prepared for our questions and provided a list of
references we could call. Their quote was very competitive and with a
clean record on BBB, I decided to give them the green light.
day for 8 days, the same 4-5 man crew lead by Walter, came at 8 am or
earlier without fail. I made a special request that they do not walk on
the grass as it was new sod and they were very good at following that
request. Everyday, I watched the progress of their work, from
excavating, installing the base gravel and sand, to cutting and laying
the pavers. Did I mention that the pavers come with a 25 year warranty
from breaking and cracking?
The end result of their work -
AMAZING, probably the nicest patio in the neighborhood, bar none! I
wholeheartedly recommend Seattle Driveway & Patio for your next
patio, driveway or any other paver project; they deliver as promised and
impressed me with unsurpassed quality and attention to detail.
If you have any questions, please send me a private message and I will be more than happy to share further details."
Ken L, Renton WA
"I was blown away by Walter and Teresa.
Not only did they return
my call the same day, they were at my house for an estimate the next
day. I had a huge, cracked concrete driveway that was poured and
repaired over and over since the house was built in 1901. It was a big
job and tough working conditions right in the heart of Capitol Hill.
That means no street parking, traffic, limited space to store tools and
materials and worst of all, it was accessible only by a long narrow side
So how did they handle it? No problem. Walter had his
crew break up the old concrete the old fashioned way - by hand. He
somehow arranged for a dump truck of just the right size to get up the
driveway. Within days the rubble was cleared, new sand was leveled, and
gorgeous pavers in place. All this in just one week. And like the other
reviewer noted, the same crew of guys arrived each day on time at 8am.
am very happy with the pavers. They have transformed a place for our
cars into a very attractive party patio and driveway. In the city, you
use every bit of space you can get. Neighbors love it, my wife is
thrilled and friends can not believe the transformation. The pavers have
added significant value to the house. I wish I had done it years ago.
can find a discount through Angies List and they run specials. Of
course, they are a new business so they are working extra hard and
giving deals now to build business. Once everyone knows about SDP, the
prices will go up to support the quality work that they do.
If you want to see for yourself how pavers can look, have them show you my drive and walkway any time."
Mike K, Seattle WA
"I would be happy to allow my patio pictures to be used by your company in
referring potential customers. Also, you may call me and schedule
potential customers to view your work. I was/am pleased with the final
product; the patio is
very useable and presentable again.
Barry M, Mercer Island WA
love our garden and bluestone patio. We are glad we used you for a
quality finished product. Regards,"
Dwight Riederer, Enumclaw WA
"We are extremely pleased with our new paver patio. It has made a world of difference in our
backyard and has added immensely to our outdoor enjoyment this summer.Our
experience working with Teresa and Walter was very professional and
from start to finish. They came out to our house quickly and provided a
written estimate and were helpful to me in deciding which one of the
many paver products and colors would suit our purposes. Their team
arrived promptly the morning of the first day of
work and every day until the patio was completed. My husband and I plan to have Seattle Driveway and Patio install our front courtyard patio
next Spring. We highly recommend SDP and Teresa and Walter to everyone who wants a quality product at
a fair price with helpful and professional service. Thank you!"
Cris & Jim Comings, Kirkland WA
"We liked that you specialized in the design and installation of stone/pavers
etc. as well as being competitive on your bid.We are extremely pleased with the outcome, the solutions for some of the
tricky details (septic cover, drains etc.) and the overall look of the job.If someone was not sure to go with you, I would mention the quality of work,
attention to detail and efficiency you provided on our job.Thanks."
J. Gallagher, Redmond WA

Eric T, Seattle WA
"Seattle Driveway & Patio are hard working people. The part I
am most impressed is their dedication to make sure that their customers
are satisfied. Although we had some misunderstandings on some part of
the project, Teresa (the owner) corrected them quickly and did a great
job in coordinating resources to get everything done. The patio was
nicely done and it looks great."
Neighbor, Issaquah WA
"Her son and a friend installed a small
strip of sod for our condo association. We would use them again but
would want to be there when they did the work."

"Love the job! I've already referred you guys to a friend. Looking
forward to seeing the pavers with the sealer on them. I appreciate all
