How to Avoid a Concrete Driveway Repair Scam

Hiring the right concrete driveway contractor will help you avoid being taken advantage of.

Bids are NOT done based on a multiplier on top of materials cost to get labor cost. Think of the consequences in the example you gave - by that method using say plain home depot tile made in Honduras might cost $5/SF materials, so by your method $10 labor. Now, same floor, with Carerra marble or Barre Granite at $75-100/SF - so do you want him charging you $150-200/SF labor when it takes almost exactly the same time regardless of material ?

To put it in simple terms, contractors:

1) figure the amount and cost of materials and consumables needed from the plans and specifications, applying a markup (from 15-50%, depending on contractor and how fancy or specialized a job it is).

2) Then they figure the equipment needed and the operating time to be used or elapsed time to be rented or leased - either opperating hour or elapsed time, or combination of both, especially if it consumes fuel

3) They then figure the labor time for the various trades required to do the job, maybe add an efficiency or ease of work multiplier to those hours to fit the job conditions, multiply those hours by the hourly pay rates, then multiply that times the "load" or "Labor Overhead" to account for employment taxes, workman's compensation costs, health plan, etc, etc.

4) Then they add in the cost of any architect or engineer plans or certifications that are needed, government permits and inspections, etc.

5) Then they add in any subcontractor bids, with appropriate contingency amount for each.

6) All those above totals are added up, an appropriate overall contingency added if needed (typically 5-10%, but on remote site jobs I have seen as high as 200%), and (depending on how contractor figures his costs) at least all the "in-house" costs like his equipment, consumables, and labor costs have a percentage overhead and profit added to them - typically about 100-150%. Some contractors use a lower overhead percentage but apply it to the total estimated job cost, not just in-house costs.

This "company overhead" or "general overhead" or "G&A - General and Administrative Overhead" covers the costs of financing and running the company, management and secretarial and general supply and maintenance costs, buildings and equipment yards lease or mortgage cost, working capital cost, insurance, loan interest, general shop equipment payments, profit, etc. Some contractors use a lower overhead and apply it to every cost in the job, some (especially those doing government work so havingto adhere to government accounting rules) apply a "markup percentage" to materials and rental costs and outside subcontract services, and apply G&A overhead only to in-house costs.

 

That being said, for a general class of work it does generally (on normal jobs) work out that there is a general multiple of labor to materials cost. For instance, yard work and residential tree work is heavy on labor, so it might have a labor to materials ratio of 3:1 or even 5:1.  Detail foundation hand excavation and underpinning can run to 5:1 or more. Many types of building construction like plumbing, tile, carpentry, etc. do end up with a very roughly 2:1 or 3:1 ratio of labor to materials cost. At the other extreme, high energy efficiency or hurricane rated glass installation or a fancy full-building computer and communications system or high-end entertainment center might have a labor to materials ratio of 0.25-0.5 because it is designed to go in pretty fast, but the materials cost a lot.

For your case, a hardscaping ratio could run from 0.5:1 or less to as much as 3:1 or more, for installations with very expensive imported stone and fancy woods and a lot of bought decorative items such as statuary, to the opposite labor-intensive landscaping with lots of sidehill terracing and hand-planted flower beds, hand-dug irrigation system trenches, and manual-placed concrete block or railroad tie walls. Each job should be figured on its own merits - using a "rule-of-thumb" is where people commonly get unpleasantly surprised. That is why you typically get 3 bids unless you have a contractor you trust from prior experience and are confident will give you a fair shake regardless of being sole-sourced. Personally, both for my own purposes and professionally in the design and construction business, I have found sole-source to trusted contractors you have experience with is, in the long run, a BIG money and time saver, as well as making it far more likely to finish on schedule and let you sleep at night.

?
?

You need a general contractor - prefereably one who specializes in additions, because you have excavation, waterproofing, concrete, concrete cutting, carpentry, door and window, etc trades to coordinate.

The cost will depend a great deal on your topography around the house - if the base of the window will be above ground level at least 6 inches, then could run about $500 for a legal egress window purchase and about $1000-2000 for installation, depending on how deep into the concrete you have to cut.

If the bottom of the window will be below ground level, then to call it a bedroom (which mandates legal sized second egress and usauully at least one window)  then you will have two choices - bring it out into a solid watertight concrete storm cellar with collar to keep water out, stairs, and and weather and bug-tight cellar door that is inward-opening, which means a lot of space for stairs and landings top and bottom, or bring it out into an oversized window well at least 36 inches in diameter, and with steps to ground level, with adequate drainage and waterproofing to keep it dry. Either way, sometimes about as easy to put in an outside door as a window, and might raise property value more. Cost from $2-5,000 depending on how deep into concrete wall you have to dig, whether concrete wsall needs reinforcing with steel frame because of the depth of cut, how easy the digging is, and what your water conditions are near the foundation. The last thing you want to do is create an easy water or vermin ingress with your egress.

I initially signed on to work with and the folks through an Angie's List coupon that included 2 hours of concrete work or repair for $99. When inspected the driveway section in question, he recommended a 5-step process that would give a longer life than a basic epoxy repair. ...More However, when they arrived on site the day of the job itself, in preparing the concrete for this 5-step process it was determined that there were too many hollow areas below the concrete pad and that a 2-part epoxy would be a more cost-effective approach considering the need for additional work not too far down the road. They knocked that project out in a couple hours and said the $99 was good enough for that job.
and measured the driveway section that should be replaced and will be providing an estimate for the job. If their estimate is competitive and the time is right, I will not hesitate to use them again.

We had some communication problems at the start, but when got the word, he was quick to call, give us a price and do the work. and were very pleasant and professional. They did a really nice job and we shared breakfast with them one morning, enjoyed talking with them. They are ...More very easy to work with and go a step beyond what was in the original contract, We were very pleased and would recommend to anyone wanting concrete work done. All work was completed in one day. The next morning and came by to remove the forms and clean the area, better than it was before the job. We know have a sidewalk our neighbor youngsters can ride their bikes on and a walk in the back yard we can drive our big snow blower on this winter. We would definitely hire them again for any concrete work.

Beautiful! I had a very short time frame for this job, wanting it done before Halloween as my walkway was unsafe. also came in with the very best quote by far. I am extremely pleased with the work. He and his brother are very polite and friendly. I have tried several companies to get them to do this job, and ...More delivered. Some said the job was too small. One had a time frame of months. A third came in with a quote of 2.5 times this price. The job was completed today. Needless to say, I am very happy with the entire project!

The work took about a month to do, mainly because it rained nearly every day during that period. I think this was a bit of a drain on both and I as the project dragged on quite a bit. I think is an honest contractor and skilled at his craft. generally communicated expectations ...More clearly about when he was planning on coming out to do the work. We did have a few communication errors. I tried to communicate that I wanted compound pitch on the patios in the back and why, but it ended up mainly being pitched in only one direction. , generally did a good job making sure was pitched away from the house. There ended up being a small area at the end of the driveway with standing water. , ultimately took responsibility for this and busted out and repoured that section of the driveway. All in all, the driveway looks pretty good and is one of the better contractors I have worked with.

Rod met with me regarding converting my old gravel drive to a concrete driveway. The quote was the best price I received vs. 2 other competitors. His crew came in and worked like gang busters on the promised date. They were courteous and proficient. I would highly recommend for your concrete needs.

An uprooted tree pulled up a section of my driveway. ( ) gave me a very reasonable quote to replace the damaged section. was in contact with me several times prior to work starting. I never had a problem with him not answering a text or phone call. He always responded quickly. Work ...More was started and completed today. After some problems with 's -hammer, he and his helper manually broke up and removed section. ( could have said he'd be back another day because of this issue, but he didn't!!) I will also add that I was very concerned with possible damage to an electric fence wire (for my dog) in the exact area where was working. EVERYTHING went just as planned! Removed and hauled the away. . .electric fence intact and working fine. . .poured new concrete. . .smoothed, finished and sealed! IT LOOKS PERFECT! When it dries I know it will look like it was never damaged!! There were also 2 sections of sidewalk (near my driveway) that had raised up just due to freezing and thawing for several years. took it upon himself to replace those sections, although he didn't have to. He is very conscientious in doing his work and said he just couldn't leave the sidewalk as it posed a serious tripping hazard! I would highly recommend for any concrete job and will definitely have him back for any future needs! YOU ROCK !! THANKS!!

The owner, Decker, was provided a high level of confidence that the job was being done properly. The number of steps to correct my porch were more than I expected. As such, I am so pleased I hired a professional vice trying to attempt this job myself. The only issue was the first day; did not contact ...More me timely that he would not be at my home by scheduled time of 10 am on October 8. Subsequently, I called Mr. and he explained the delay.
