Watch our video above of a recent driveway paver installation in Castro Valley, here’s what our client had to say after completion:
“Awesome experience for us! Huge difference in curb appeal. The old 1981 concrete driveway did not have rebar in it, so it was badly cracked and needed replacing. It really made the front of the house look bad. Now that the new paver driveway is done, the driveway and house looks great!”

Thank You Letters
“Thank you for your wonderful crew at Viking Pavers for accepting our challenge and turning our dilapidated and dysfunctional backyard (consisting of cracked cement and broken down cinder block planters) into a pleasant outback retreat. Because of your “expertise” we’re spared from the once felt delirium and are now proud to bring out family and friends out back for a barbeque. The pavers patio gave us the room needed for a nice size table and chairs and more seating with the new planter box/sitting walls and the synthetic grass adds a nice softness and compliments the landscape. We gave you an ugly duckling to work with and you gave us back a swan, far exceeding our expectations! A great job done, always prompt, courteous and professional for a very reasonable price. We are recommending Viking Pavers to everyone!”

“Viking Pavers worked on our backyard at the end of 2010. The work is outstanding. They made a 6 foot retaining wall and reinforced an old wall to be able to withstand a jacuzzi. They also replaced a set of steps leading to the front of the house and built a paver patio. The neighbor’s house is currently on the market and even the broker selling the house has commented on the workmanship and the quality of the work done. We are so happy with the work they did and are waiting for our summer to come in San Francisco so we can really enjoy it!”
Pedro and Madeleine G.
“Just a note to let you know how pleased we are with the work you and your crew did on our driveway/parking pad. You came in on budget, on time and worked around some curves I threw your way with exceptional professionalism. I know 90% of a good job is in the preparation and it is unfortunate that your superior foundation, grading and subsurface prep is hidden by the pavers. I will say that as we enjoy the appearance, my pleasure will be greatly enhanced knowing what lies beneath the surface.”
David and Barbara
“We hired Viking Pavers because we saw the work they did for our neighbors. At the beginning, they worked with us to find the right materials, delivered samples to our house, and made sure that all aspects of the work to be done were clear. Once they started work, they made quick progress, but always kept in constant contact to make sure there were no mix-ups. They kept a neat job site and the work crew was very polite and easy to work with. At the end, I can say they delivered a product better than what the contract called for (they added a number of small additional requests at no cost). Overall, it was an excellent experience from beginning to end and we would use them again without hesitation.”
“I wanted to thank you and all of the personnel at Viking Pavers for the wonderful installation job. We are very pleased with how the project turned out. You and the entire Viking team are to be commended for your professionalism and hard work. Not only was the outcome top quality, but your pricing was very competitive. Please feel free to use us as references.”

“My wife and I would like to thank you for the excellent job you did on our backyard project. The quality of the work, the attention to details, and the work ethic of you crew is not often found today.
Working with you was a pleasure and we look forward to using Viking Pavers for future projects and will recommend you to all of our friends. Please feel free to have anyone contact us for a reference.”

“I think you know how much we love our patio. It’s made a huge difference in our lives. We enjoy going outside at all times of year, something that was difficult when our feet got soaked and muddy. It’s as pretty as can be and has encouraged me to install a beautiful fire pit, as well as to enhance the garden. I recently set a 5” round teak table and six chairs out there. Really, it’s like having another room on the house. We recommend your work heartily!”
“We wanted to thank you and your team for the amazing job you did on our driveway. The transformation is incredible. We could not have asked for a more professional, detailed company to work with. Your follow-up and constant attention to our project was appreciated. Please use us as a future referral anytime. We look forward to having more work done by Viking Pavers.”
Tom and Angie
“We wanted to take the opportunity to thank Viking Pavers for such a wonderful job performed at our home for the installation of pavers and bullnose to complete a foundation for our hot tub. It often seems like everyone always has time to complain but never time to sit down and thank such a wonderful company for a job well done.
Our job started out with the estimate. We were shown pictures of the many possibilities of what our project could look like with the many different colors, styles and options. Once we finally decided on the paver color and type, you kept us well informed as to what was happening, and helped us make decisions with steps and nice accents that would help with the value of our home and foundation.
Even during the middle of the project, your company was always available by phone and your crew was very thorough and knowledgeable from start to finish. We are eventually going to put the some pavers in where our old concrete patio is and without hesitation, we will be using Viking Pavers to do the job. It’s people like you that can help make real-life decisions and suggestions that really help to make a successful project and to this, we are very thankful.”

“I did a background and reference check on Viking Pavers and everything was clear! The day the crew started was absolutely amazing. They had a convoy of trucks come in with all of their equipment. Their energetic and happy crew got to work right away. They had the demo done in a day and started right away on everything else. They timed everything so the project ran smoothly. I was actually happy to pay for the excellent work they did. They went above and beyond our expectations making sure we signed off on everything that was done. Viking Pavers is a top notch operation and we are very pleased with the work they did for us. We always get compliments from neighbors and passer-byes, but it’s our continued happiness and satisfaction with the results that make us feel great.”
Matt and Robyn
“I just wanted to take a moment to tell anyone considering a project with pavers that I couldn’t be happier with the job Viking Pavers did with my new driveway. They really spent time with me to pick out the style and design that would look great with the space I had, and was open and willing to listen to my thoughts as well as offering suggestions from their experience. Once the work was started, I was amazed with the timeliness that it was completed and how tidy the yard was when the workers left. I have received many compliments from total strangers walking by my house and I feel like I have added value to the neighborhood as well as my property. You can certainly spend more for your project, but I don’t think you can get a better quality of workmanship than Viking Pavers!”
"We want to highly recommend Viking Pavers who just finished a significant front yard project for us.
This job included paving our drive way, walkways and porch. In addition, Viking Pavers installed a new lawn, seating walls, yard lighting, and sprinkler/drip system.
At the beginning of this project, we were wary since we had failed in our previous efforts to upgrade our front yard. However, Viking Pavers allayed our trepidation because they had many years of experience, offered a warranty, and came recommended by a friend. In addition, they were very professional and supportive throughout the process.
Karen Skinner was our design consultant. She was extremely attentive to our needs. We were able to make the major decisions in a relatively short time frame.
In addition to brochures, Karen Skinner furnished information/materials, such as samples, websites, previous jobs, and hardscape stores, so that we could make informed decisions. Moreover, Karen was very patient and accommodating when we decided to make color and pattern changes.
The demolition and construction stage of the project went smoothly. Gustavo Olivera was the project manager. He did a good job of translating the design requirements into a reality. We are extremely grateful to how respectful and receptive the Viking Pavers team was to any of our concerns as the construction progressed. They were very patient with us.
Overall, the job came out so much better than we could have ever imagined. The skill and attention to details of the work is readily apparent. We are very grateful to the entire Viking Pavers team for making our front yard a source of pride."
"We have just completed our 1500 square-foot asphalt driveway replacement with Viking Pavers. Wow, what a difference!
From start to finish the job was done in an efficient and professional manner. Ron Harmer was our Design Consultant and showed up for the initial consult when promised and got us an estimate within the next day or so. The other two companies that we contacted weren't as diligent nor as competitive as Viking.
We pulled the trigger, signed the contract and they showed up about 3 weeks later as promised and got the job done within a week.
Pictures speak louder that words, check out our before and after."
"Great experience and we are very happy with the finished product. Stephanie our design liaison was top notch. She was helpful with stone choices, patterns and fit for the space. I also appreciated her level of communication and involvement throughout the project. Highly recommend you give Stephanie a call."
