Q. What are you working on right now?
A. Randy Jaragoske: We just wrapped up a big job in Groton doing a lot of concrete and stone on a new house. We did some concrete work at Super 8 East, have some patios and landscape projects going, and will be starting a really interesting project out at Mina Lake soon.
Q. What services do you offer?
A. We have four main areas:
Concrete: flat expanses, stained concrete, concrete countertops, sinks, planters, tables and furniture. Concrete's creative possibilities are endless.
Outdoor living: concrete patios, bar areas, fire tables and fireplaces.
Landscaping: retaining walls and paver patios.
Masonry: all brick, stone, block or glass block.
Q. What do you specialize in?
A. We specialize in creative concrete work. Concrete can be stained, colored, molded and personalized.
Q. What are a few jobs you have completed in the past year?
A. We created a beautiful yard with a stained concrete patio and very unique landscape. We've also done some concrete countertops, many different types of patios and outdoor living areas. We were also happy to make a concrete sink and some glass block work for Ultimate Kitchen & Bath's new location.
Q. How many employees do you have?
It depends on the job, but typically two to four people work on a project.
Q. What are you most proud of?
A. Our passion and creative ability to make concrete a work of art. We love what we do and I think it shows in our work.
Q. What's the greatest compliment your business has ever received?
A. When someone said, "It's just like the stuff you see on HGTV." They just couldn't believe they could get work like this done in Aberdeen.
Q. What are your goals for the future?
A. One of our big goals is to better inform our region about the variety of options that are available with concrete. It can be left looking natural to complement materials like wood, stone and brick, or it can be changed. It can be treated with chemical stains, coloring pigments, aggregates and epoxy coatings that allow concrete to mimic popular materials like marble, granite and limestone. Because each piece is made to order, customers can be a part of the creative process.
