Elegant Estates has educated and experienced designers on staff that can assist in creating a space that dreams are made of! Our paver design services are computer generated which allows for quick and easy changes to your project plans at any stage of the design process. We also offer 3D design services and a virtual reality experience to help you to easily envision your proposed outdoor living space.

As a contractor that is heavily certified in the stone industry, Elegant Estates knows the latest trends in the industry and have been designing stunning hardscapes for 20 years.  Many frustrations that people have with designers, is paying them for a design that contractors cannot feasibly install. Furthermore, it can end up being way out of line with their budget because designers may not have experience installing what they design. For that reason, we have made it a requirement for anyone who designs an outdoor living space also have previous experience installing those spaces. Find peace in the fact that when we design a space for you, that it is achievable, both logistically, and within the budget that you give us!


 – Our Paver Design Process –

When you call to schedule your consultation, we will set up a time that is convenient for you to assess your project and listen to your needs. At this time, we will take measurements and photographs in order to start your design. From assessing the property we will be able to recommend materials that will work with your site and integrate well with your interests and vision for the project. Depending upon the project at hand, we will ask you questions during the design process in order to complete a design that best reflects your vision according to your budget.

 

 – Our Equipment – 

Elegant Estates has invested heavily in software and hardware to help you to envision your project of interest.  Any exterior project is designed in both 2D plan views as well as 3D renderings. Included in those designs are a feature that many clients have found very useful, and fun – Virtual Reality (VR).  Any exterior design that we complete, we can render in VR and let you experience that in the comfort of your own home. This is very helpful to clients as it aids in the perspective of scale and level of detail represented within the design.  It has never been easier to envision your future paver project.  Stand right in your hardscape before you spend a penny for the installation! We also can render video flyovers of your project design as seen in this design video below.

 

 

 – Best Time To Plan – 

Since we require designers to be a part of the installation process, this assures that the installation goes as planned.  Due to this, the best time to plan for your future hardscape project is over the winter. Our design service becomes limited during the high volume installation season (spring-fall). However, you can contact us at any time to inquire about our availability as weather can play a significant role in scheduling. 

 – Setting A Budget – 

It is important before design work is started, to set a price that you are willing to pay for the project.  Like many other large purchases, you have to ask yourself how much money you are willing to pay out of pocket and how much are you willing to borrow in order to make it happen.  The trick for homeowners and contractors alike is putting a price to your project. 

Many times we find that our customers have no idea how much their dream backyard may cost. This is fairly typical, and reasonable since each and every job is unique. Each project has many variables that enter into the cost equation.  Some of these variables include:

  • Accessibility to your site
  • Materials used
  • Drainage requirements
  • Permitting issues
  • Finishing touches 

This is why it is extremely important to select a contractor who specializes in this type of work each day and can forecast many of these costs up front.  Contractors with little experience or installation knowledge often can quote a low initial price, but when they encounter obstacles issue change orders. These change orders can overrun your budget quickly. Let’s face it – No one likes surprises!  Resist the urge to have your landscaper, lawn guy, or handyman quote your paver project. 

We have assembled paver patio packages that are of typical sizes for the Upstate New York area. This helps to give you an idea of how much a standard patio would cost. Additional variables such as accessibility, grade, and shape are few of many elements that can affect the price. We have also developed a handy calculator tool for those clients that are looking to install a more involved back yard.  Elements that can be calculated are patios, walkways, hardscape elements, lighting, water features, etc. This tool calculates the average starting points for variables that you select.  This is helpful in determining how far your money will go and will allow you to explore options such as financing and phasing before you even meet with a contractor!

When we quote out each job, we factor in each variable that is unique to your site.  Since you are not likely to know 100% of what is involved with installing your project, this number may be beyond what you have “budgeted” for the project.  Fear not!  You have many options at this point in order to financially achieve your dream.  Other than phasing out or financing your project, scaling the project down or changing materials, etc., can also bring your job cost down.

We are proud to have teamed up with HFS Financial to make financing as simple and streamlined for you as possible.  All you have to do is click on the link below and supply some information regarding your project and within minutes you will have a decision!  You may choose to use the financing for all, or some of your project! We are happy to work with you on a variety of payments structures.
