I had high hopes that
at
would work out well. Work was performed and seemed to be going as planned. On the second day of construction,
called asking for his payment. I hand delivered it, assuming the work was complete or almost complete. After receiving the check,
left the job site. His workers continued to work. The job is yet to be complete as the finish work is not skim coated. Attention to detail was not impressive as the new steps were poured in different locations than what was removed and was not an improvement to the original location. The concrete was poured, leaving the handrail "crooked". Overall, very poor attention to detail and no customer service or communication.
After paying $3,000 to
, I have not heard from him. I have left numerous voicemails and emails. This is truly unfortunate. Paying money for a job that is not complete is not good for either party.

Within just one year, we have several areas of chipping and cracking including several long cracks along the width of the driveway. Driveway along the side of the house was poured with an angle that pitches slightly towards the house, resulting in our previously very dry basement getting water nearly every time it rains along the wall that should be "protected" by the driveway.

They came in and took the old driveway out along with the piece of sidewalk without damaging any of the other pieces, made sure that the base was good. They formed everything up, put new expansion joint new to garage door and poured that day. By the time that I go home from work they were just finishing up and had everything taped off, it took them something like 5 hours to do the job and they did a good job. If here would be one complaint that I have is were they ended up cleaning their tools, which isn't the end of the world but I think they should have asked the other person in the house

I had a great experience with
Grand Rapids Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
. Someone else I knew had work done by them the previous summer and was having some more done at the time I needed mine done as well (we are near each other) so we both had work done the same day to best schedule and utilize their crews between the jobs. They showed up on time, demo'd the old cement, and formed and poured the new. I had a somewhat unique request to have some ground contact 4x4 posts put in while the cement was poured and they had no issues accommodating that. After the cement cured, I installed some composite railing utilizing the 4x4's and it's more solid than any rails I know of elsewhere for homes. The cement mud that they used was fantastic. It was a great color and just the right amount of "grittiness" to it (I am not a professional, so I am not sure the exact term), but it's not slick to walk on and gives you traction, without being a bear to try and sweep off. It was perfect. It's holding up flawlessly in freezing/thawing unlike the old cement and I couldn't be happier. I'd love to have them come and do all of the cement around my home to make it the same, but it doesn't "need" to be done just yet, so I'm waiting. Their pricing was really good and less than half of another place I had contacted (granted the other place was more used to some larger jobs, so their price was admittedly higher for a small residential job as a result). In any case, I'd say that the prices for
Grand Rapids Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
are extremely competitive even in the residential work realm and their workmanship and professionalism is top notch. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone. Great people and great work!

An absolute nightmare. Likes to be paid in cash (not check: CASH) And doesn't give you a receipt. Nice guy, and talks a good game, texts you back with lots of promises. But if he messes up (like he did with my job), he will not stand by his work, and will have a thousand excuses why he can't fix at the moment. I paid over $8,000 for an aggregate walkway. It was completely messed up when installed last August, and Bill said he would remove and replace after he did a few other jobs and made some money to fund the redo. . (He claimed that it was one of his partner's fault, the concrete comoany's fault, etc., and that he couldn't afford to fix). Then he said he would be back at end of October. Now he says it is too late in the year. His excuse now is that he doesn't want his good name on a re-do because the weather is bad (I was afraid of that, but he assured me in texts last summer that he could pour until December). But right now his name is on it, it looks absolutely terrible, and I have concrete all over my brick wall which he will not come out to remove. He tore up my garden, ruined the edging, and refuses to come back to fix that, either. Buyer beware. His business was incorporated in 2006, and he has not paid his corporation fee to the State of Michigan so his business license has lapsed. He claims that what other unscrupulous people do is wait to get sued, then start another company. So maybe that is the plan, I'm not sure. Taxes (employment taxes and income taxes) are not dischargeable. Hopefully he has taken the cash i handed him and treated the IRS and State of Michigan better than he has treated me. If he refunds me or comes out to fix my problems (even removing the cement all over my brick), I will re-post. For now, I have given up.

I found
Grand Rapids Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
on Angie's list, phoned him - took a couple of tries but we connected. He came out and we talked about options. Unlike other contractors, he was willing to consider different ways of solving my problems: uneven sidewalk (last year at Halloween we had an 8 year old trip and fall flat on his face - luckily on the grass and not the sidewalk), a broken step (skunks were living under it when we bought our house in 2005), and a porch that had cracked and settled so that a shallow lake would form when it rained (really fun for Grandma in the winter when it iced up).
1. We talked about getting the sticking-up edges of the sideway sections ground down, but that would expose the aggregate, and if the sidewalk continued to settle, would need re-grinding. Plus it would not look very good. Slab/mud jacking was another option, but I never liked the holes drilled in the sidewalk, and
Grand Rapids Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
said it doesn't last for more than a few years (
Grand Rapids Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
doesn't offer that service). Plus, the contractors I had talked to before wanted too much money for the work, in my opinion. So, for another $800 or so, I opted to get it torn out and repoured.
2. When
Grand Rapids Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
(and
Grand Rapids Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
and
Grand Rapids Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
) tore out the porch step, they noticed that it was narrower than it should be, so they made it wider. I like that they knew it was not up to code and did it right, for the same $250.
3. For the front porch, we discussed different options, but short of tearing out the whole porch (big $$),
Grand Rapids Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
suggested grinding it to add a slope so the water would run off. But that would again expose the aggregate, so he recommended sealing and colorizing it, which would hide the stress crack (no way to get rid of or caulk that) and the aggregate. We picked a light beige color, which we are very happy with - it's like a thick paint but it's bonded to the concrete.
All in all, after three summers of trying to find someone to fix the entry to my house,
Grand Rapids Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
was the only company I could find that had the experience and willingness to handle it all. I highly recommend them.

A & B responded promptly to a message left for them, and showed up within two days, as promised, leaving a quote for a set of steps that we needed for a side door. I called back after seeing the quote and asked several questions and said we had a custom design in mind.

, the owner, listened and asked intelligent questions and reduced the amount of the quote based on what we said we wanted. He said the work would get done within the week. It actually got done within three days - he called, said he could fit us in earlier and came by first to make sure he knew exactly what we wanted. The crew and
Grand Rapids Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
showed up promptly, worked fast and efficiently, created a great design for us, and did a beautiful job. His design suggestions resulted in a far more attractive and functional set of steps than what we'd come up with. Not only did they clean up after themselves, they cleaned up after me - taking care of an old set of steps for me at no extra cost.

Everyone was professional, courteous, friendly and efficient. They're nice people and they do great work. The price was more than fair. I'd use A & B again in a heartbeat. They're just excellent.

They did very well. The man who was to measure the areas I wanted replaced was very nice, informative and punctual. He only took a few minutes of my time. I received an estimate quickly via email as agreed upon. I then called the office and the office manager wanted me to send the whole amount, however I told her that would not be good for me as a consumer so she agreed to 60% down.

They called me about a week and half later and asked if they could come the next day. The crew arrived before 8am and stayed until afer 5pm. They finished my neighbor's portion and about 3/4 of my job. They came back the next morning and finished up my job.

The crew was very pleasant. and patient. This is a professional organization. I would highly recommend using

Everything went as planned. To Mr.
Grand Rapids Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
's credit, he saved me about $60-$80 dollars -- I forgot the exact amount -- by using concrete prepared for a larger job he was doing, relatively nearby, at the time. My only issue was the work crew did not remove excess concrete on my lawn when they left. However, when I notified Mr.

Rich, the owner, showed up promptly for an estimate professionally dressed. He listened to our needs and was able to help with many other suggestions not given by other contractors. He thoroughly examined the job and made us see clearly that our roof was caving in from lack of support. His suggestions gave us confidence in his ability, we could see he knew exactly what he was talking about. He brought his crew over once we decided to go ahead and did a "walk through" to ensure we all knew exactly what was being done.
