From Utility to Tranquility

A transformation from builder-grade to Gasper-grade

When Jon B. thinks back to his backyard pre-Gasper, he realizes he and his wife Robbie did not use it because his previous builder-grade design was simply not that inviting. The existing deck built with the house had not aged well and lacked no direct access to the backyard. Of course, without a patio, there was no reason to step into the yard. After admiring a neighbor’s deck and patio recently built by Gasper, they decided to reach out to see what Gasper could come up with for their under-utilized yard.

Jon and Robbie knew they were looking for a large composite deck with access to a lower-level patio and gas fire table. One feature that was extremely important to them was a built-in deck bench on which the family dog, Hartley, liked to sit and monitor the neighbors. After Gasper’s presentation of the initial design concept by sales designer Erik Freeman, the final design became a true collaboration. Together with Erik, they worked on tweaking things like the size of the patio and the curve of the patio wall. They also selected the perfect material (irregular flagstone) to give the new patio the casual, inviting feel they were looking for.

Construction can sometimes be an arduous, disruptive process, but Jon felt that with Gasper, the process was anything but difficult. He liked how Erik handled working within the township guidelines, which made getting the permits smooth sailing. “Erik was very professional from start to finish. He kept us informed of the schedule and always made it clear what would be happening next. I really appreciated that,” remembers Robbie.

A neat and tidy worksite was also important. For Robbie this was a priority. For Hartley it was a necessity. “We always had to clean up after other contractors to make sure Hartley didn’t get into anything hazardous. The Gasper crews did an amazing job of cleaning up every night,” Robbie affirmed.
In addition, Jon’s impressions of both the Gasper carpentry and hardscape crews were that they came and worked … and worked … and worked. No wasted time and highly efficient.

It is important to stress the word professional … working with Gasper was a true professional experience.

“I really appreciated that it was one-stop shopping — the design, the 3-D model, the construction, and then the furniture. The team at Gasper made it so much easier by taking the burden off of us. When we selected Gasper, we knew we were heading in the right direction,” shares Jon.
