Building With Excellence
DRIVEWAYS & PAVERS
Utilized in the construction of elaborate, age-defying structures like the Colosseum and the Roman Parthenon, concrete has been the building material of choice since the fourth century BC. We at SoCal Contracting honor this ancient tradition by offering preventative concrete maintenance, removal and replacement services to prolong the life expectancy of your concrete areas.
Interlocking concrete pavers are a popular choice for driveways due to their versatility and strength. These pavers are designed to interlock with one another, creating a stable and secure surface that can withstand heavy loads and constant use. Our experts are well-versed in the installation techniques required for interlocking concrete pavers, ensuring that your driveway will be properly constructed and able to withstand the test of time.
Permeable pavers are another option that we offer for driveways. These pavers are designed to allow water to drain through them, reducing runoff and helping to prevent flooding. This environmentally-friendly option is not only functional but also aesthetically pleasing, as it can be customized to create unique patterns and designs.
For those seeking a more luxurious and elegant look, we also offer porcelain pavers for driveway paving. Porcelain pavers are known for their beauty and durability, making them an excellent choice for creating a stunning entrance to your home.
Our team has the expertise to handle the installation of porcelain pavers, ensuring that your driveway will be both visually striking and able to withstand the elements.

From the initial design phase to the final installation, we will work closely with you to create a driveway that not only meets your needs but exceeds your expectations.
BRICK & BLOCK WALLS
Stone walls have been around for thousands of years and each decade seems to keep perfecting the process. Everything from pilasters, stone veneers, to simple garden walls. Genesis craftsmen have done it all and can help you build your next wall or pilaster. There are many differences between natural and manufactured stone. Natural stone retains its color, resists weathering, is more durable, heavier, reusable, and is more labor-intensive to install. Cultured or manufactured stone is made with pre-sized pieces and controlled coloration, which reduces waste for cutting and time for installation.
Homeowners often choose a natural stone that is locally mined, adding another element of harmony with the surrounding environment. Because of the added weight, there are additional considerations when building with natural stone. Often a footing must be built as a foundation for example on the natural stone veneer. This adds another expense to the process, but also adds another level of stability to the veneer’s structure. On the other hand, manufactured stone facing is much lighter and quicker to install than natural stone, resulting in significant savings: one half to one third the cost.
Artificial stone is made to fit together with minimal cutting, so the waste factor is enhanced saving on material cost. Manufactured stone is more consistent in color, which contributes less time for installation, labor savings, and convenience of a quick installation.
Artificial stone is made to fit together with minimal cutting, so the waste factor is enhanced saving on material cost. Manufactured stone is more consistent in color, so the homeowner has a more reliable expectation and knows how the final product will appear. The reliability of color, less time for installation, labor savings, and convenience of a quick installation leads many homeowners and builders to choose manufactured stone over natural stone facing.
