Dear Karl
We would like to record our delight with our new Patio.
From the moment of your prompt response to our original enquiry to completion your company has been outstanding.
Your advice on Products and your commitment to complete within a tight time frame and on Budget has been exemplory.
Will you please pass on our thanks to Gavin and Declan. Their commitment to produce quality work with politeness and good humour was very much appreciated.
Gavins ability has transformed our garden with a Patio which shows off the high quality Sandstone perfectly.
With kind regards Jan and Dave Bennett.

To Karl Lake,
We feel that we must inform you of the patio you laid and enclosed with Indian Sandstone.
We are highly delighted!
The workmanship was excellent and the work team always busy, helpful and polite. The work was made more difficult by the slope of the garden and having to negotiate the steps with heavy loads of material!
We must also mention that your supervisor on all aspects of work was conclusive at times, three times daily!

Cringleford, Norwich

We moved to Cringleford in Norwich a few years ago and bought a very old house with a large front garden that was mainly a car park with a thin layer of gravel, weeds and many overgrown bushes. Karl and his team transformed this into a beautiful landscaped drive, front garden with flower beds and lovely entrance area to our house. A total transformation, beautifully executed and sympathetically done including features like flint walls to match other original walls in the neighbourhood.
The team of builders were extremely friendly and accommodating at all times, the work was done in record time (two weeks!), everything was left tidy and we have already received many compliments from neighbours and people just walking by. We would have no hesitation in recommending Karl and his excellent team to anyone. Full marks and a big THANK YOU!

Beccles, Suffolk

Having moved into our bungalow 3 years ago we had a useless paved patio on the back of the bungalow, We decided to have this removed and put a brand new one down plus a path up to the shed. We contacted K T Lake on recommendation from one of our friends whom had work done by them, Karl came and discussed the layout of the patio and path and advised us on the materials and other details which we had overlooked, The work was started at the end of February in some rather up and down weather, raining on three of the four days it took to complete the job , We cannot thank Gavin and Declan enough for their hard work and dedication they put into their work, they would consult with us on the layout of the patio and path if there was any problems which there was very few. Nothing was too much trouble for them and when thay had completed the work they tidied up after them to leave the area all around as clean as possible with the weather conditions the had to work in, They finished the area with topsoil which made the job look much tidier and at no extra cost. We cannot thank Karl and his team of workers including Steve enough for the quality of there work, and would recommend them to others who need this sort of work done.

I contacted K T Lake Paving & Landscaping on the recommendation of a work colleague and I’m so glad that we did! We had already obtained two other quotes but Karl’s visit was a revelation. We needed to create additional parking space and incorporate some sort of planted area between our property and the shared roadway in our cul de sac, and we wanted it to have a modern look overall. I was clear about what I didn’t want. Karl was full of suggestions and advice. His drive in/drive out proposal was the perfect solution, and a much better idea than suggestions put forward by the other companies. A quote was provided during the first visit which was really helpful. There was no hard sell, it was left for me to discuss with my husband and then contact Karl if we were interested in proceeding. We liked the fact it was a long established and reputable company with lots of satisfied customers with glowing testimonials. We felt we would be in capable hands. We quickly decided to go ahead. No deposit was required, which was a refreshing change as you are made to feel completely untrustworthy these days by some companies when making bigger purchases. Karl dropped off samples and was clear on dates. He was readily contactable, and with regular site visits once the work commenced, it was very reassuring. Most of the work was completed by Gavin, Declan and Carl, who arrived very early and worked extremely hard over the five day job. They were friendly, polite and professional. They were so tidy and disruption was kept to a minimum. Even our neighbours commented on it. A BIG thank you to the team. The transformation to the front of our property is incredible. I really wish I had remembered to take a “before” shot so we could show everyone the contrast. We now have the clean, contemporary look that we were after. We would have no hesitation in recommending Karl and his team for paving and landscaping services. An excellent job – thank you!

Swanton Morley

Dear Karl,
We write to thank you for the work that you recently undertook at our property in Swanton Morley. We are delighted with the final result which has surpassed our expectations.
Having recently moved to Norfolk we had difficulty finding a contractor in whom we could have confidence.
You responded promptly to our enquiry and gave professional and practical advice for the construction of our new patio and paths.
We were pleased that the work commenced before the original start date and was completed in 3 days. Your staff were approachable and polite and worked with a minimum of disturbance to us and our neighbours. Lee and Steve in particular worked very hard with a high level of skill. We are very pleased with the result, which has greatly enhanced the property.
Many thanks,
Jo and Mark Watson
