Letter from customer to GAPPSI,
“EXCEPTIONAL! Before we hired someone to install our circular driveway, in 1996 and our backyard in 2007, we physically looked at more than a dozen jobs. After researching thoroughly, we hired Giuseppe Abbrancati. His knowledge of his product as well as his innate ability to visualize the end result puts him well above his competition. Ultimately, our driveway dramatically enhanced our curb appeal. It is a showstopper, with passersby still stopping to ask us who did our job. Many people in our community including our neighbor had pavers installed by other contractors. They have settled, and deteriorated and have had to repair the installation. So when it came time to renovate our backyard last summer, we knew that the contractor with the utmost expertise and skill would be Giuseppe and his crew. Once again, they delivered another masterpiece by any design standard. Honestly, if you want a contractor that you can trust implicitly to deliver an exceptional dramatic result, than there is only one man for the job…Giuseppe Abbrancati.

“Initially, my husband and I wanted to only redo our front stairs. We had several contractors give us quotes, but no one could design what we were visualizing. Giuseppe at Gappsi changed all that. He worked over all the problem areas and did a better design than we imagined. When we visited the showroom, we decided to extend our project: we did our driveway and added a side patio. We used Amagansett 6×9 flamed and tumbled granite paving stones that we selected from the Gappsi showroom for the driveway, the walkway, and for the border of the backyard patio. We absolutely fell in love with and used large French pattern natural travertine pavers for the patio. We also added Hanover tan blend for the seating walls in the backyard and for the front stoop. Gappsi even handled the landscaping. Besides a great design, the team that worked here daily was so professional and friendly. We would recommend this company to anyone. They truly were a pleasure to work with! ”

Customer letter to GAPPSI:
“We had our swimming pool built & had Gappsi design & install the entire backyard. The backyard patio had to be elevated because of the high water table since we are on the water. Gappsi suggested the use of Hanover cedar blend chapel walls in mixed sizes of 3 & 6 inches. The layout incorporated a hot tub area & a fire pit & all the paving materials around the swimming pool. Backyard patios & walkways were Galattico Travertine we selected from Gappsi showroom. We also used a Rosato Travertine border throughout. For our driveway Gappsi installed Nicolock stone ridge oyster blend paving stones. Everything came out beautiful. I wouldn’t have done anything differently. Thanks again.”

Letter from Customer for work completed in 2008
“We spent a lot of time to investigate and look around for the best person who did driveways and the backyard work. After looking at many other contractors’ work and seeing Giuseppe’s work we quickly decided to give our project to Giuseppe to design and built our swimming pool with an auto cover. Our pool is safe and it stays clean thank to the expertise of Gappsi Pools. We had a salt water system installed and Gappsi did a great job building it. He got our permit very fast and completed the pool very quickly We had Nicolock colonial cobble autumn blend paving stones with Granite City borders and full nose coping as the masonry patio build around the swimming pool. The backyard also incorporates a multi-level raised patio with a bbq and bar sitting area; planting beds for flowers and trees were created along the top of the walls. Walkways were built on both side of the house to connect to the driveway and the front of the house. The driveway was designed with inlays of fans for the driveway apron and a large circle designed courtyard with a paver art sun design in the center and a grand entrance walk way to the front door… Giuseppe has a lot of knowledge of what he does. His work amazed us when we went to see many projects he did many years ago. Those places still look good like brand new. He really works hard to give you the best product and he really cares for the best end results. He has such amazing ideas and he listened to all our needs. Like other contractors, he does not talk you into doing more work with him if it’s not going to look good. He gives you the best advice. Doing a brand new construction we came across many contractors but no one was as near good as Giuseppe is. He starts the Job when he tells you and finishes on time. It was very difficult to go through all the construction we did and dealing with other contractors for the house. His work was so fast and neat. After having him work on our backyard and the driveway we really wish that we had a contractor like him doing our whole house. Giuseppe’s workers were very nice, respectful, on time and meticulous. We also want to mention that In our community, we came across at least 4 people who worked with him in the past and are very happy with his work. We recommend Giuseppe and Gappsi and welcome others to see the beautiful work which he did in our backyard and the driveway.”

Letter from customer To GAPPSI,
“Giuseppe Abbrancati I can’t tell you enough how pleased we are with the pool, patio, fireplace and retaining wall Gappsi built. The difference in our property has been tremendous. We have received so many compliments and one of the best and “most frequent compliments” is the backyard should be in a magazine. We love it even in the winter when the pool was closed its magnificent. Regarding the construction and all the aspects from beginning to end I can’t stress enough how “stress less” this was. From the time of our first appointments with Giuseppe right to the completion, we received everything we contracted for and more. I have been involved with construction many, many times and we never ever had to come home to find something was not done right. The excavation, pool walls, leveling, removal of dirt, trees, forms, electric, gravel delivery, stone delivery, design of patio, fireplace, outdoor kitchen walls, stone decorative walls, coping and every other piece of the project completely 100% of the time we never had a problem with the completion not being exactly as we discussed during our appointments. We had many different aspects and the crew was one of the most professional and especially expert in their trade. The pool was completed to perfection including the stairs, stone, lights, filter, heater and liner (without any wrinkles in the final installation). The electric pool cover was something we had not originally planned for and we are so happy it was explained to us. If we had not done the electric pool cover, we would constantly be cleaning and heating the pool. Again it was a slight challenge due to the extended size of the pool, but attention to every detail and research was done to be sure it would be implemented correctly. It was and it is well worth the extra cost because it saves in the long run. I would highly recommend this. Giuseppe promised to deliver the entire package with the various experts all pulling together and he did. I would more than highly recommend GAPPSI in pools, patios and any home improvement contract is works on. This is like the academy awards Giuseppe! I hope I have mentioned everyone and all aspects of the job to thank everyone involved. It was PERFECT! As I mentioned before, I have been involved in home improvement in the past and totally know how contracting can go wrong from ideas to the crew themselves. GAPPSI made the work and project stress free. Thank you sooooo much!!!!”
