"I called an left a message for to set up an appointment for an estimate to mudjack our cracked concrete patio. He called back the same day" and said he would be out to give us an estimate in the next few days. He stopped by when my husband was home; initially I had asked only for an estimate for our concrete patio, but my husband also asked for an estimate to mudjack our garage floor, too. His prices are reasonable and my husband liked the fact that he only does . We're waiting to hear back from a few other companies before we make our decision.

"I called the main number to set up an appointment for an estimate on Wednesday. I received a call from on Thursday, and he said he could" give us an estimate on Friday. was great. We initially asked for a quote to mudjack both the concrete patio and the garage floor. said the garage could be mudjacked, but that the patio concrete is not in good enough shape and we would not be happy with the results. He recommended pouring a new patio, which was something we had considered doing anyway. His estimates seemed reasonable and in line with others; we're waiting to hear back from a few other companies before we make our decision.

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.


The cost to install the veneer stone has a wide range do to many factors. It can range from around $9 to $17 per square foot. It depends on the location, the stone being used, job access, skaffolding needs, wall prep and such. I would think you would be on the lower end of the scale. Your job is on a concrete surface so it eliminates one of the biggest problems they are having with this product, wall preperation. This one of the things that separates the high bidders from the low ones. There are million dollars homes being torn down because of improper wall prep. One a wood frame house a backing system that allows drainage is a must or the moisture absorbed by the veneer can rot the walls behind with alarming speed. Some have had makor damage within the first four years. On a concrete wall the veneer needs no such prep at most wire mesh applied if it is an older concrete wall.




Is the wall that the garage is sloped toward and adjacent wall of the home?


If not, it should not be of real concern. 


Try to keep the water out of the garage with a gasket on the door. 




If the state requires a contractor's license, then he needs to have a license in each state he intends to work in - plus state/local business licenses as applicable.


This does not mean there are not a lot of contractors who cross state lines without proper licensing - the penalties in may cases are not real severe and are just a fine, not criminal, so many take the chance.


As you say - argh  - many contractors are not really businessmen and have zero legal education, so many people get burned.

Mudjacking reviews in Milwaukee


I called to schedule an estimate. I was told would call me to schedule a time. I called a few days later and called me back saying he'd call me when it got closer to the days I had available. Another few days, I called directly and he said he'd call me Wednesday night ...More to schedule a time on Friday. He never called me back to schedule a time on Friday and by the time Friday rolled around I was too annoyed with them to call. I understand it's the "busy" time of the year but after two weeks of trying to schedule an appointment and never getting a call back, I was fed up.
- Tracy C.

The price is right where we wanted it and competitive based on the other 3 estimates we had gotten. The sales person was friendly and available at practically any time to answer questions, followed up accordingly. The office lady was also very nice, professional, seemed knowlegeable. The work was done well, exactly to spec, no problems. The one ...More disappointment was that we had gotten the estimate in early September and committed with a down payment in mid to late September. We were told the the job would get done in about 3 weeks and that we would recieve a call closer to that time with the date. Well, after 4 weeks, I connected with the Sales guy to find out what was going on, apparently they were behind on projects due to rain, and it would be about another week. When another week went by and I heard nothing, I called the office to let them know that I needed an exact date as to when this is getting done because if they couldn't do it before it snowed, then I needed to find someone else. The office lady told me she would find out and call me back. Within 24 hours she contacted me with date and they did make that date happen.
- Joe K.

The estimator, , showed up on time and was pleasant to work with. Subsequently, the crew came out, performed their work with little fuss, and cleaned up after themselves. Price was in line with other estimates. After they leveled the raised concrete, it didn't line up with where it had broken off. Perhaps there's some ...More artfulness associated with this work. Wish I'd know this was a potential outcome when I signed up for the work. Overall, I'd call them again if need arose.
- Ross S.

hree people came, mudjacked 3 slabs to be dead even, cleaned up and left. They came on a Sunday, which is refreshing to me based on how little some contractors wish to work. They were cheaper than my other 2 quotes. The only issue was that one slab cracked a corner, which they patched to look as good as possible. I don't know it it was because ...More of anything they did, but I would suspect this type of thing happens. Hardworking, clean, professional. I would recommend them to anyone.
- Patrick S.

Atlas did a great job. They were prompt, did a great job, they set it up so I did not need to be home when the work was done and they cleaned up well. I would certainly hire them again based on great cost and great service. My neighbor also hired them and were very happy with their work and their low cost.
- alan H.

The driveway was nearly two inches lower than the garage slab. raised and pitched the garage approach as well as the adjoining driveway slabs and the connected sidewalk by the front porch. What a difference it makes! We now have a nice, smooth transition from the driveway into the garage.
- Gail R.


I asked him to give me an estimate to Mud my sidewalk from the stairs of the public side walk to the stair going down to my garage. Specifically including a slab I have in the back yard that is tilted at about a 10 degree angle. He got me an estimate within a few days of the initial phone call. His estimate was 1/3rd of ...More the cost last guy I talked to. So I went with it. About three weeks later I was told they could be there tomorrow to do the job. I got home that evening form work and the mud jacking job I asked for was not completely done. The slab at a 10 degree angle was one of the two slabs that where not mud jacked. I then closely reviewing the estimate. If you look at the diagram in the right way you could see that the job that was done was what was estimated. The diagrams that are used for quoting from any company that does this type of work are very rough with no scale and no other reference details included. Like where the house is. I called him to talk about it. He was very nice and said he would come out and take a look at it and let me know how much it would cost to finish the job. The following Monday he called me and said his equipment would not be able to reach the back yard and he will be unable to help me out. No discount offered and nothing further to help me out. I feel he should have told me he could not do the whole job up front instead of giving me a quote for part of it and hopping I would catch the fact that it was not for everything I asked to be done.

It went bad from the start! On 5/24 came to tear off the two layers of our roof. They didn't take any precautios to protect our house. We had black "scuff" over all over our vinyl siding and brand new front door. Our landscape on the side of our house was destroyed as well. We told them ...More about it and they used a chemical called Oops to clean off the scuffs (which is not safe to use on vinyl siding). This caused severe clouding and obvious "spots" all over our siding. We again brought it to their attention and they used another chemical to try to clean it up. I contacted several other roofing companies and they told me it was permantely damaged. I told , the owner of , and he disagreed. He wanted to continue trying several other cleaners and I refused. I didn't want it to get damaged worse nor did I feel comfortable anymore. We discussed our options and couldn't come to a resolution. In the meantime, our roof became an issue. It started leaking with the first rainfall after our roof was completed. So I brought this up to . He came over and looked at it and they cauked it and said that should fix it. Well it didn't!! We have a visible "hole" or space around the chimney where you can actually put your fingers in from the inside our attic and see your fingers on the outside of the roof. Which means there was still an issue and water was still going to be getting in or leaking in. This was again brought up to and with a lot of calling and pressuring came out again. His solution again was adding more cauk to fill the holes. The results again were that the roof was still leaking. So once again it was brought up to 's attention. We arranged for a meeting at our house to discuss our options. It became a heated discussion and and his sub-contractor Bill were not happy with what I was saying so they both got into their vehicles and drove away speeding and squeeling their tires. We tried to contact him to let him know that the roof was still leaking and he didn't do anything. This was our last contact with and . So we contacted 's insurance company. His insurance company came out to the house, looked at the roof and said he did a bad job. The insurance company told us that they don't cover bad work so we needed to contact to get something worked out with him. The insurance company would cover the siding and the landscaping that got damaged but at a pro-rated rate. We never heard back from the insurance company and left several voicemail messages etc. So now we only had one option and that was to contact an attorney. The attorney said we had a good case and we proceeded. The case came to mediation and we ended up wining. This has caused alot of stress and time for me and my family and I don't want this to happen to anyone else!!
