Granite Driveway and Masonry Installation, Dix Hills NY 11746, by Gappsi

Granite Driveway and Masonry Installation, Dix Hills NY 11746, by Gappsi

The driveway installation started with the excavation of existing asphalt and sub base. New concrete base with fiber mesh was installed with Amagansett granite pavers is laid over a thin layer of graded sand. Stone was selected from the Gappsi natural stone collection. Jumbo Belgian block was installed for the street curb and driveway entrance. The sealing process begins with pressure washing the entire patio, removing all dirt/debris from the stone surface and in between the joints. Next, Nexgel Techniseal synthetic sand is applied in between the pavers joints and vibrated with a mechanical plate compactor. The plate compactor has rubber rollers to prevent the stones from cracking or scratching. This vibrating process allows the sand to fall in between the joints and density. Then, we clean the pavers with brooms and landscape blowers, to clean the excess sand from the pavers surface and to evenly spread the sand in between the pavers joints. The next step is to wash the pavers by misting water to penetrate the synthetic sand into the paver joints all the way down below the pavers. The sand and water activate a chemical reaction of the pollen that’s in the sand to cause the sand to harden. Finally, the application of the sealer, two parts components urethane dealer, specially formulated for Gappsi, is applied to the pavers surface and the sand joints to prevent stones from staining, extend their life cycle and further enhance their texture, color, and surface. From design concept to finish execution Gappsi provides natural stone supply/installation, Cleaning and sealing services.

Gunite Swimming Pool in Cold Spring Harbor NY 11724, designed and built by Gappsi

Gunite Swimming Pool in Cold Spring Harbor NY 11724, designed and built by Gappsi

This 20′ by 50′ gunite swimming pool was built in Cold Spring Harbor Long Island, NY. This gunite swimming pool has a double Roman end shape with a raised spillover spa along the 50′ side. Steps are incorporated on each side of the spa for entering and exiting the pool. A full-width sun deck is equipped with reversed circular steps to mirror the pool Roman end. The 6′ high Porcelain tile was installed and styled to create a unique mosaic design, under the entire pool, coping and spa. The finish for the inside of the pool is Taho Blue Diamond Bright, which was applied on the walls and then acid washed for an etched texture and finish. The masonry for the pool was designed to complement the pool shape and give the customer plenty of patio area around the entire pool. The masonry was also designed to work with the great changes in the backyard slopes. The pool coping, patio and venire for the spa walls, including the retaining walls and steps, are the Melfi natural stones selected from the Gappsi natural stone collection. The pool coping is a multi-sized pattern with a split tumble rock face front. The venire is a combination of 2’ and 4’ split face Tumble. The pavers is a roman pattern, multi-sized natural stones with a natural cleft and tumbled. A 5’ aluminum fencing was installed to surround the entire pool area and a simple landscaping was needed for the aesthetic. The pool and patio design layout have an immaculate beauty because when using the same color and type of stones for the floors/walls in different finishes gives the appearance of a cohesive finish. The design was manufactured by Giuseppe Abbrancati and the job was constructed by Gappsi Group. For more info visit http://www.gappsi.com or call us at 631-543-1177.
