Smile Chattahoochee River Rock

Does anyone have Chattahoochee River Rock for flooring in your Lani?
I am interested on your comments as to the look, duribilty, strength and overall performance on this surface.
I was given the name of a contractor, Matt, that was recommended from a friend of a friend. Has anyone that has this product used Matt, and what is your take on him?

Thanks

There are lots of posts and opinions on this- if you are interested, use the search feature at the top of the forum page and type in the box... you will find much to read.

I like Matt Allums.
I like Chattahoochee River Rock.
We had it installed 4 years ago on the lanai, on the concrete walk along the side of the CYV, on the front porch and on the floor of the garage. We had the sidewalk and lanai resealed (they are in full sun) by Matt after about 3-1/2 years. The porch and garage did not need it.

I especially like having it in a garage.

Matt is a good guy.

Have had it in two houses, love the look & feel and it never looks dirty, yet is very easy to clean with a vacuum. Highly recommend it!

Matt installed ours on our Lanai 6 years ago. He did a great job and it looks as good now as when it was installed.

Go for it.

Matt installed it on my lanai 4 years ago and I love it. Have not had to reseal as the lanai is shady. Vacuuming and occasional power washing keeps it looking good.

Matt did our lanai and oversize concrete pad outside the lanai for the grill.

Great job, on time and quality work.

Is it terribly expensive?

The cost is by the square foot, most lanais are about $1000 or so, can't remember our exact price but we had an exterior pad done also.

Matt will give you a free estimate where he shows the color options and measures the square footage.

He did our estimate on a Monday and the install that same Thursday (not in high season).
