Preparation

At Cardero we believe anything we build must withstand the test of time. Just like our customers, we want the end product to be as level and square as the day it was finished. The secret is site preparation. Before laying block the site must be readied by removing soil, packing the area, adding drainage rock and packing the area again. The soil is removed and replaced with a mixture a sand and crushed rock that will pack and allow water to pass. It is important that water does not collect. It can cause the finished product to heave in freezing weather or sag during wet weather. We take pride in our work, committing the necessary time and resources to prep.
