were within $2,000 of each other and 's quote was in the middle. I choose Bill
On the scheduled day Bill and his crew arrived around 8:30 am. When he drove up, I started to remind him of 3 concerns that we had discussed in our first meeting. However Bill did not need the reminder. He said “I know that you are very particular about not having any standing water in front of the garage; secondly, I know you are very particular about not having any runoff on the lawn (a previous contractor replaced a section of driveway and sloped it onto the lawn so I wanted to make sure that all water drained to the street) and thirdly I know you want to have an apron that corrects the “lava flow” of concrete into the street.” Impressive
that he remembered all 3 concerns. We also discussed potential damage to the sprinkler system that might result from the removal of the old driveway.
The removal of the old concrete in front of my garage turned into a bigger job than anticipated as the concrete that was poured about 60 years ago was much thicker than what Bill expected. His crew spent most of the morning removing this section with a cost of extra time, effort and expense. However Bill stuck to his original quote and to his credit and professionalism did not ask for more money. Even though Bill was sick with flu like symptoms he stayed with his crew the entire day to oversee the demolition and framing part of the project. I do not know him by name, but Bill’s foreman or project manager was extremely good as was the entire crew. In the 8 hour day, I think they only stopped briefly for lunch.
The second day started with the arrival of the crew around 7:30 am for final preparations of the concrete pour. Again Bill was sick but again he was there for the entire day. I worked from home this day as I was very interested in watching this part of the project. I also wanted to be there to ensure, as best as I could, that my 3 major concerns were handled properly. The pour and the
shaping of the wet concrete went like clockwork. This day his 6 man crew did not even stop for lunch (I guess you can’t when you have concrete drying!). All crewmembers seemed to know exactly what their jobs were-no one was standing around twiddling thumbs. They shaped, molded, sloped and leveled the concrete as it was poured and by 3:30 or 4 the job was done. They cleaned the area and left. I told Bill I would test the sprinkler system on the second day for any damage. I found that I had 1 break in the water line, 1 head that needed to be replaced and 1 head that had been covered up with sod. Since Bill and I had already
discussed the possibility of some damage, I called him and he simply said for me to call the sprinkler company that I was using, have them repair the system and send him the bill. The repair cost was $176 and Bill promptly sent me a check.
To sum up, Bill’s quote was in line with the other recommended companies; he appears to have a reasonably sized organization so that you are dealing directly with the owner with any questions or concerns that you may have; he showed up and finished the job on schedule; there were no attempts to charge extra for unforeseen problems; he was onsite the entire workday, both days, and he promptly reimbursed me for the unavoidable damage to the sprinkler system.
I recommend Bill
