I had been looking to finish off my driveway in Blackrock and had seen some of the work Pat Redmond and his team had carried out in the area. I approached Pat for a quote and was pleasantly surprised. Pat’s Team arrived on time and did a tremendous job, they went the extra mile to do exactly what I wanted and more. Pat could not have been more obliging, courteous and helpful in completing the work. The overal finish is extremely professional, to such an extent that seeing work in progress my neighbour had theirs done at the same time. I would have no hesitation in recommending A1 Paving and I am delighted to say that they were money well spent in this market.

What can I say without sounding corny? Choosing Pat Redmond and his team to lay my new driveway was one of the best decisions I’ve made. In a trade notable for some poor operators Pat and his lads were simply excellent. From our initial consultation to the speedy end of the project , it was a pleasure to deal with them and to see the high standard of their workmanship as the job took shape. One or two tricky features of the plan were effortlessly carried out and the finished job is a treat to behold. I would highly recommend A1 Paving without reservation to anyone considering a driveway or patio job. Feel free to use it in full or in part on your site. Many thanks again for a fantastic job.

To whom it may concern: About 8 years ago Pat Redmond and his team came to our rescue by rectifying a bad paving job done by another company on our front driveway. Having seen some of Pats work in our locality and following some enquiries, he came highly recommended. In October 2010 our family purchased a dog (puppy). Between the harsh winter weather and our new dog playing in the back garden, maintenance became an issue. Our back garden had become a mud bath. We decided to to call Pat and his team again. He devised a new layout for the back garden while adhering to any wishes or requests we may have had. Using his experience, expertise and finess, we agreed upon “Indian Sandstone” for our back garden. Pat and his team did a fantastic job. They worked efficiently and professionally. We are very happy with the way it now looks. We cna confidently recommend Pat Redmond and his team / A1 Paving to anyone who is contemplating landscaping / paving work. We definitely feel it has been money well spent.

To whom it may concern: A1 Paving recently laid an indian sandstone patio and raised flowerbed to the rear of our house and put down some gravel and granite block edging to the front of our house. We are delighted with the finished project and would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Pat Redmond and A1 Paving. All work was carried out in a timely and professional manner. Pat was on site himself regularly, everything was left tidy at the end of each day and completely cleared and cleaned at the end of the project. All in all, completely hassle free, fantastic job, pleasure to deal with.

To whom it may concern: I recently was given the name of a builder from a work colleague who in turn recommended A1 Paving to do my driveway, we had had a new driveway put in two years ago but the firm who put it in put stones on a very steep slope and as a result, the stones just spun when you tried to drive in or out. I rang Pat Redmond and he called out the same day to look at the drive and he recommended taking off the stones and putting paving blocks down. We agreed a fair price and Pat said they would be out on Tuesday 11th Aug to start the job. Sure enough at 8.00am on Tuesday, three of Pat’s workforce arrived out and worked solidly for the next two days and by 5..30pm on Wednesday, they had the job done. The driveway in question covers a large area and the job was not small by any means. I have never before seen three guys to work so diligently and efficiently. There was lovely sunshine on Tuesday and non stop rain on Wednesday and both days they worked non stop. No Way did these guys hop into their van when the rain fell, they put on their raincoats and worked on. How refreshing! Plus they left the place spotless when they were finished. The new driveway looks fantastic and now we can drive in and out smoothly. I would have no hesitation recommending A1 Paving to anyone thinking of getting work done. At the end of the day A1 Paving offers fantastic work at a fair price in a reasonable amount of time and in these current uncertain times, that is all anyone wants.

To Pat: Just a quick note of thanks for the recent work carried out to our back garden. We are delighted with the patio area and the stepping stones work really well with the new lawn. We were very impressed with the attention to detail and professionalism of the whole job from the initial discussions right through to the finished product. Please don’t hesitate to call us should any prospective customers require a reference. We would have no hesitation in using your services again should the need arise.
Guido & Caroline Franken, Terenure.
To whom it may concern: We recently had our patio area extended by Pat and his team at A1 Paving. The results are everything we wanted and the job was carried out from start to finish in a very professional way. Pat went to great trouble to ensure the paving and gravel matched the existing ones exactly and attention to detail was excellent. The team arrived and completed the job on time, as had been agreed and while working they were tidy and careful not to do any damage or make a mess. Nothing was too much trouble and we were very pleased and impressed with the finished job. It was a pleasure to deal with people who took so much pride in their work and we have no hesitation in recommending this company.

Alison & Joe Madigan, Belmont Green, Blackrock.
To whom it may concern: We had a large space to the front of our house which required an unusual layout for use as a driveway and a family space. We approached Pat for a quote and found him to be incredibly fair and helpful. Pat and his hard working team arrived on time on Monday morning and by Friday afternoon they had completed the job beautifylly. This job presented a number of challenges and comprised use of indian sandstone, cobbles, gravel and front door steps. We are absolutely delighted with the end result which exceeded our expectations and we would not hestitate in recommending A1 Paving to anybody. Many neighbours and passers-by have all commented on the excellent quality of work. It has given a fantastic finish to our house, a job really well done and worth every penny.
May & Gerard, Blackrock, Co Dublin.
To whom it may concern: We are very pleased with the work done by Mr. Pat Redmond and his A1 Paving team at the front of our home. When we saw the finished product at the front, we had no hesitation in getting the back done also. Mr. Redmond conducted a very professional business. He came when he said he would and both jobs were completed on time to our satisfaction. We are delighted to recommend his work which is of a very high standard of workmanship, materials and visual finish.

To whom it may concern: I.B.J. Featherstone would have no hesitation in recommending Mr. Pat Redmond Paving Contractor, to tender and quote for any paving and ancillary services which may be contemplated.

David Bannister, Ballinteer, Dublin 16.
I had A1 Paving extend and lay a new driveway along with a new patio in my back garden. I had sought several quotes from a number of paving contractors and was initially impressed by Pat Redmond and decided to give the job to A1 Paving, even though he was not the cheapest. I am thrilled with the outcome, the quality of work and attention to detail. I would recommend Pat and team for any paving job as his experience and advice are excellent and helpful.
