" was able to do our driveway with a quick turnaround from estimate to pour. He and his crew were professionals and did wonderful work. I would definitely recommend.

"This work is exceptionally done, and they did it fast. I have no complaints about the work whatsoever. I do have complaints about the staff that was on our site." I also had several post-installation questions that went unanswered, and resorted to Google to determine the answers. Disclaimer: I've sent these concerns to the owner privately and they haven't been addressed in the month since I sent them. The owner, , is great. He's personable and clearly knows what he's doing. I think he prefers phone calls to email, but will answer email no problem. We had an estimate done and it looked good so we went ahead. We were able to do the project a bit earlier than anticipated owing to 's schedule, so we had the team come over at 7am on a Thursday. At 6:45 that day, I heard loud cursing between two men on the street outside of our house, and looked out to see a young guy with a flatbed trailer on his truck yelling at one of my neighbors down the street. The rest of the crew arrived, along with , and he made sure to cover any last minute details. They got out the Bobcat and started to remove the asphalt, at which point I left for work. Upon returning home, we had a new driveway! Then we talked to our next-door neighbor, who relayed the following: - they walked back and forth through her front and back gardens without asking - used her garden hose without asking permission - they went into the neighbor's yard on the other side of her house to wash off equipment on the lawn She also said she didn't feel comfortable repeating some of the things she overheard them say. I wasn't there, nor was my husband, but we passed this feedback along to , as well as some questions about the driveway. These questions were never answered, nor was the behavior of the staff acknowledged in any way. I want to reiterate that the work they did is top-notch. They came back the next day to cut joints in the work, and we let it cure for two weeks before driving on it (thanks for the info, Google). It's smooth, has no cracks yet, and is well-graded to shunt water away from the house. I just wish our complaints about the staff had been at least acknowledged by the owner.

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.

and his team were wonderful to work with. I had contacted in June, 2014 for an estimate and he immediately contacted me and was at the house the next day. After meeting with him and discussing the project, I knew in my heart this was the company I was going to have do the work and did not meet with anyone ...More else. We booked the project for this year and his calendar keeps you informed on when your work is going to be scheduled. A few days before the work was to be started, he came to the house and we discussed the job again.
When the time came to do the job, and his team were friendly and answered any questions that I had.
The job looks better than I could ever have imagined. I have had so many comments on it on how beautiful it looks and what a good job his team did. Thanks again!

is wonderful to work with. He really listened to what we wanted and delivered it. The job was beautifully done. is so good at getting the pitch right so everything drains correctly. He is an excellent communicator and takes care of any issues that arise. This is the second job he has done for me and ...More I highly recommend him and his crew.

Our driveway has been a source of embarrassement for many years. and his crew made the front of our house look neat and clean. The driveway is absolutely smooth, well done and easy to shovel. The kids love playing on it and the patio. They can ride their bikes up the driveway and down, now. We don't have to worry about ...More tripping over crumbled blacktop anymore. The presentation is beautiful and we have had many neighbors stop by to ask who did the work. We are proud and pleased to give them 's name and number.

We can wheel our trash cans out to the without risk of injury! The area next to the garage is amazing. ran the leader from the gutter under the driveway and out the other side so the water won't collect on the driveway and freeze in the winter. He designed the extra wide driveway, patio and front stoop to look slick and clean and so it would be an excellent presentation for our home.

We were also able to get credit for paying in cash at the beginning of the job. We would HIGHLY recommend and to everyone who needs work done!

We selected because his quote was reasonable and he seemed to care about our project. He did our driveway the way he would do his own. There are a lot of details to get right when putting in a driveway and was patient with our questions and helped us make informed decisions along the way.
The shape ...More of the driveway is just how we wanted it because took the time to go over the layout before any pouring started.
The driveway looks great! We'll hire again the next time we need concrete work.

I chose based on all of the positive reviews I read on Angie's List and it was definitely the right decision! My new driveway and sidewalk look fantastic! was easy to work with all the way through and kept me informed of what was being done and informed me of delays due to weather. He also has an ...More online website with a calendar that kept me informed of when my work would be done.His communicating so well with me was important as I have not had good luck in the past with contractors being responsive and keeping me informed. The work crew worked hard for 3 days and were pleasant,respectful and did a wonderful job of cleaning up. The end result of their hard work was a quality job! I would use and recommend again in a heartbeat!

Roughly 2/3 of our concrete driveway had cracks and needed to be replaced. Cliff was very responsive in providing a quote and offered a very reasonable price. He was also very flexible in scheduling the work - they got us on the books quickly, then rescheduled at our request without complaint, then stayed in touch to offer earlier dates as they finished ...More other jobs. They were very responsive and courteous to our needs. The work itself was completed promptly and looks great. Cliff answered all of our questions and treated us with great respect while at our property. He also provides detailed instructions how to maintain the concrete, particularly during the first month and the first winter.

After initial connection, it took and I quite a while to work out a deal to get the driveway done. Once we did reach a deal, however, was a pleasure to work with. He and his crew were on time and got right to work, demoing my driveway and preparing it for concrete on day 2. Day 2, the driveway was exactly ...More what I hoped for. We haven't had any issues with it and it's been about 8-9 months since it was poured.
