Planning Out Your Concrete Needs

Strategy and planning out your concrete needs is a key part of the proper execution. Without the proper planning, your project could turn into a failed mess. We work with you from start to finish. First, we’ll walk through your location and discuss your ideas from design to use. We’ll give you our professional opinion on what will work and what may need to be redesigned. Together, we’ll agree to a well thought out plan and design that will meet your highest expectations. Before getting started we’ll assess the land and surroundings to determine the groundwork needed to prep the site. We’ll determine what obstacles we need to consider and what materials need to be used to deliver optimal results. As we establish a solid starting point we’ll build out the framework with all details in mind. We work hand in hand with you every step of the way to ensure each milestone is completed to your approval. Every little detail plays a crucial role, one missed item can be detrimental to the outcome as well as the longevity of concrete surface.

You can see these steps in the pictures below. We understood the plan and execution needs. From the ground up, we built the concrete structure based on the needs and elements the client wanted.

Happy Retirement to Our Friend & Colleague, Chris Graham

Happy Retirement to Our Friend & Colleague, Chris Graham

Spring is upon us and with it comes new beginnings.  

Our family here at Blackwater Designer Concrete has undergone some pivotal changes, one of which includes our friend and colleague, Chris Graham, heading into retirement.  

Chris’s retirement is our loss, but a well-deserved respite for him. We wish him and his family well and continued success in whatever venture comes his way.  He will be greatly missed.

Meet Danny Kimmel, New Director of Sales

Danny Kimmel, P.E. Director of Sales

We are pleased to announce and welcome Danny Kimmel, P.E. to the Blackwater family as our new Director of Sales.

Danny began working for his father’s residential construction and poured concrete wall companies at a young age (at his request!) in the summer time.  As the youngest child of four, he wanted to quickly learn everything about construction to keep us with his two older brothers.  The hands-on experience greatly helped, and Danny’s desire to become as well-rounded as possible in construction influenced him to attend WVU’s School of Engineering, where he graduated in 2007 with a B.S. in Civil Engineering.  Upon graduating, he worked for an engineering firm that focused mainly on commercial construction and became a Professional Engineer in 2013.

In 2014, Danny came full-circle back to the residential side, and worked for nearly three years as a Construction Manager in building homes, where he became familiar with Blackwater Concrete.  Truly, the best part of the job was helping people turn their dream home into reality.  

Throughout the years, Danny built one house from the ground up in his “free time” in 2008-2009, and in 2014 he and his wife Erika, took on a major fixer-upper home.  His family continues to grow, as their oldest son, born in 2015, got a little brother shortly after Christmas in 2016.   The family dog, Arya, keeps getting more play buddies.

Danny grew up in Frederick County, Virginia, and knows the surrounding areas very well.  His free time is enjoyed with his family, watching WVU sports, exercising and occasionally hunting and fishing.  Growing up, he played baseball and football, but his favorite sport was wrestling.  The most important things in Danny’s life are his family, his faith and his career.

Meet Keith Hagerman

Keith Hagerman

We are pleased to announce and welcome Keith Hagerman to the Blackwater sales team.

Keith has been in the outdoor/landscape service industry for over 15 years.  He worked with former Director of Sales, Chris Graham and assisted in creating a seamless transition.  He is very thankful to both Chris and Eric for bringing him on board and has loved it since he began.  

Keith enjoys working with clients to help them achieve their unique outdoor living space.  He is always excited to watch the process take place from design to completion.

As a John Handley High School graduate, he was very proud to see his eldest son graduate from there as well.  In Keith’s spare time he enjoys being outside as much as possible, playing basketball and watching his youngest son play basketball for Millbrook HS as well as his AAU team.

Meet Chris Graham

chris 3

Chris Graham has been working in the outdoor service industry for well over 25 years. Chris joined Eric at BlackWater nearly 6 years ago now and their partnership is the perfect match.  Prior to that, Chris owned a lawn care firm, but it was at that time he started working in concrete, nearly by accident!

He purchased a new construction home and he decided he needed a patio, driveway extension, and basketball court. Using some of his lawn care crew’s expertise, he was able to design and build his own outdoor concrete areas and was immediately bombarded by friends and neighbors who also had concrete project requests.

Chris decided then that he wanted to expand his business into outdoor living spaces, and so he started down the track of obtaining the necessary education to become more knowledgeable about the design and build of concrete, decorative concrete, and concrete products. He’s been in love with concrete ever since!   He loves the aspect of decorative concrete design, so he will be happy to provide guidance and suggestions on how to best utilize your outdoor space.

Chris grew up in Loudoun County and has been living in Winchester with his wife, Penny, since 1988 and they have three adult children.  His favorite non-work activity is cheering for the ‘Skins (sometimes that’s a good thing!), playing basketball, and spending time in Barker NY, on Lake Ontario, weather permitting!

Meet Matt Cvechko

Matt c

Matt Cvechko previously worked in interior concrete floor construction, and has become BlackWater’s interior flooring specialist.  He joined BlackWater over six years ago and takes this family business very seriously and while there may be a bit of sibling rivalry with Eric, it is always all in good fun!

In addition to the interior work, Matt has responsibility to ensure scheduled jobs get started and completed on time, and the whole of the business is running smoothly each day.

On his days off, Matt enjoys any and all outdoor activities including backpacking and hiking.  And during football and basketball season, you can find Matt passionately cheering on the WVU Mountaineers.  And, he loves any opportunity to spend time with his black lab, Frank.
