"The estimator that came to our house was very polite and knowledgeable. We wanted to have the quote show separate line items for removal of the old concrete and" sod for the new patio, since we were considering doing this work ourselves to save some money. The estimator did not have any issues during the visit with us doing the demo to save some money The quote came back, and was not quite what we expected. The demo was not broken out as a separate line item, and some items were combined into single line items which made the quote very hard to understand. Ultimately, the confusing quote was not an issue as the price was much higher than their competitors. If the quotation had been less cryptic, we may have looked into the pricing further to see if it could be reduced. At the end of the day, it was far too expensive for what we wanted to spend, and another company was able to do it in our price range.

-Kirstin W.

was came out and provided a competitive estimate in the May and was clear about communicating that it would be two months before he would" be able to complete the job. He contacted me a couple of days before the job was to begin, and the patio was completed in two days. Final patio looks greats!

Angie's Answers


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.



Concrete Repair reviews in Minneapolis


Simply put:
Minneapolis Concrete Contractors Provider Name Locked
and Design restored my faith in contractors. They came out quickly, they did very competent work, and while they were not the very cheapest bid we got, they were well below most of their competitors (We called roughly a dozen different companies). When they were finishing up I told them how astounded I was at their promptness and work ethic, especially for being a small crew. They said it's just what they do for every job. There are a lot of different companies here on Angie's List that get A ratings and it's sometimes tough to choose between them. At least from my experience,
Minneapolis Concrete Contractors Provider Name Locked
deserves to be in it's own class. I can't recommend them enough.
- Laura N.

I called
Minneapolis Concrete Contractors Provider Name Locked
to receive an estimate. I was called back immediately and an appointment was scheduled within 24 hours.
Minneapolis Concrete Contractors Provider Name Locked
stopped by and we discussed the front stoop replacement. I can read people really well, and knew instantly that he was a professional and honest person.
Our front stoop was deteriorating at a rapid rate after the 2013 June storm. I asked for an estimate on front stoop, but also for recommendations.
Minneapolis Concrete Contractors Provider Name Locked
gave me his recommendations and an approximate estimate right then and there. He broke down all of the costs. He told me he was adding in the cost of footings, but wouldn't know if I'd need them until he started the work. He said he didn't want me to receive any surprises, which I appreciated. He said he'd follow-up with an official estimate. I received the estimate via email within 2 days.
I received the estimate and it was spot-on with what we had discussed. I called 2 other concrete companies for bids, but no one would call me back. I did receive estimates right after the storm from no less than 3 concrete companies, so I can honestly say that
Minneapolis Concrete Contractors Provider Name Locked
beat the others in price.
We set a convenient work date. They showed up at 7am and started immediately. I had the opportunity to speak to a few of the crew, and all were just like
Minneapolis Concrete Contractors Provider Name Locked
- honest, personable and professional. He has a great crew. The job took 2 days, which is what I was told. IT LOOKS GREAT!! Drive by for a look, 4221 29th Ave S, Mpls.
I had my front stoop with 4 risers replaced, a small patio next to it, the sidewalk leading to the front and a small section in the backyard.
Minneapolis Concrete Contractors Provider Name Locked
told me that I had some footings so my cost was reduced a bit. I wouldn't have known either way, but he was honest and told me at the end.
I would highly recommend this company for all of your concrete needs. I will use them should I need any concrete work in the future.

I called
Minneapolis Concrete Contractors Provider Name Locked
on Weds and was able to schedule an estimate for Fri morning. They were very responsive and helpful. Bill came out on Friday and reviewed my garage floor, which is not standard as it is above a sub-basement. Others had told me over the phone that I would likely need to replace the floor. Bill told me he really didn't think that was necessary and advised what kind of treatment should resolve the problem (epoxy coating) and how much it should cost. He also took at a look at another question I had and advised when to call if we ever had water damage again. He was very professional and helpful. I would definitely call
Minneapolis Concrete Contractors Provider Name Locked
again if I need concrete work (and we will need a driveway soon).
- Carrie J.

On June 25 I got an estimate from a
Minneapolis Concrete Contractors Provider Name Locked
. employee on doing something with the cracks in my garage floor. The estimate was $1100.00 to grind-open and patch cracks and $5600.00 to remove and replace the garage floor. My wife and I talked it over and finally decided to fix the cracks.
Two workers came out and set to work to fix the cracks. I went out a couple of times to see how things were going. After two hours they told me they were almost finished. I noticed a couple long cracks that had not been touched, so I asked about them. They told me they had been told not to touch the hairline cracks. Soon after that they left. They had spent 2.25 hours each working on the cracks. So that was a total of 4.5 man hours.
Today I got a call from the person who did the estimate. He said I had not paid my bill yet. I told him I hadn’t gotten an invoice yet. He told me they didn’t invoice, that I was to pay from the estimate. That’s something I had never encountered before. In any case I wanted to talk to somebody about the charge before paying. I said that $1100.00 seemed an excessive charge for 4.5 man hours plus a small amount of concrete to fill the cracks. He said that was what happened when you “farmed the job out” and used contractors. He said their cost was $150.00 an hour because they had to pay workers comp and the like. I’ve had a small company of my own for almost 25 years. No employees the last few, but when I did have employees there was no way workers comp and other benefits worked out to $150.00 an hour. But even at $150.00 an hour, the labor charge would be $675.00—leaving $425.00 to cover the cost of the little bit of concrete and for profit.
I’m embarrassed to say I’ve forgotten the name on the truck one of the workers was driving—it was not
Minneapolis Concrete Contractors Provider Name Locked
. The other came in his own car. I thought perhaps I could get the
Minneapolis Concrete Contractors Provider Name Locked
guy to tell me the name, so I asked him. He said “well, it’s the same company.” So I asked again for the name. He said “it’s his brother’s company.” I assumed he meant the brother of the owner of
Minneapolis Concrete Contractors Provider Name Locked
, except the owner is a woman. I did look for the name of the other company on Angie’s List at the time and it wasn’t there. The
Minneapolis Concrete Contractors Provider Name Locked
page on Angie’s list states “Our teams are cross-trained in construction skills to avoid using sub-contractors.” Hmmm.
I think a solution to this would be a charge of $65.00 per man hour plus a bit for the concrete and something for profit—perhaps $400.00.

At first I was very impressed. The company kept in touch with me about the status of my project (it was delayed for a couple of days due to rain - that kind of thing). They assured me that they wouldn't attempt to pour the concrete in the rain. However, they DID dig the channel for the sidewalk in the rain, which I thought was pretty impressive. They even used some of the dirt from the sidewalk channel to fill the area where the previous homeowners had laid the "patio," which I didn't expect or ask for, and was pleasantly surprised by.
I understood from my contract that I would be responsible for "landscape repair." I thought that would be things like filling in the dirt to surround the channel, reseeding, etc. What I didn't understand was that I'd be responsible for so much cleanup from the concrete. There are two stakes still in my yard; there are forms in two places next to the sidewalk; there's a lot of excess concrete that was spread outside the forms; and there are even a few spots of concrete that adhered themselves to my driveway.
I don't know much about these things - but as far as I can tell, the sidewalk looks good and seems to be functional. I hope it serves for many years. But for over $1,800, I don't think I should have to do the cleaning up.

- Amy L.

They responded within three days. To replace 48 square feet of concrete, they were going to charge $6000. (for comparison, a recent Angie's List deal by them offered 800 square feet for $5000.) I elected not to hire them.
- Tracy L.

All went well with a very diligent crew. Managed to do this in the 5 days estimated. Basement was protected with plastic on the walls and door opening. Minimal dust from sanding and minimal odor of applications.
- Mike O.

Talk about above and beyond!

Gay and his team couldn't have knocked this ball any further out of the park.
The estimate was very competitive with the other 3 companies I contacted and had give me quotes. He was on time, polite, and expert when he came to look at the work. He answered my questions without making me feel like an idiot for asking them, and freely contributed information that I should have asked about and didn't know to ask. When I told him I had scheduling needs - guests coming in from out of town - he accommodated my issues without a blink.
When the time came for them to start work
Minneapolis Concrete Contractors Provider Name Locked
called a few days before to make sure everything was on track. He came by IN PERSON to make sure everything was ready the day before. The day the work was scheduled to start the entire team was there 10 minutes early - they didn't arrive at the start time, they were WORKING at the start time. I was in and out during the 3 days the project took; I never saw anyone standing around with their hands in their pockets - they were there to get a job done and they did it. I offered them ice water or iced tea on a few occasions; they had their supplies handled. I offered them the use of my restroom during the time I was at home; they refused and went to the gas station down the street - they didn't want to

up my floors.
My new retaining wall looks GORGEOUS. It's exactly as I wanted it to be, and exactly as
Minneapolis Concrete Contractors Provider Name Locked
said it would be. My quote included "no restoration" which means I would be responsible for putting moved earth back, but I didn't -
Minneapolis Concrete Contractors Provider Name Locked
and team did it for me, even though it wasn't on the quote. He also made an extra trip to bring in some gravel for a trench that was left behind when I told him that my agreement to have my driveway redone fell through.
But here is the kicker: Because the guys worked so hard, so fast, and so diligently I pulled out $50 bills to give them as a bonus thank-you.
Minneapolis Concrete Contractors Provider Name Locked
REFUSED it - when I tried to insist, he said I should give it to his men. He said he didn't work that way, and that he's doing fine off of the quoted price. Have you ever had a contractor refuse a bonus?
Minneapolis Concrete Contractors Provider Name Locked
was on time, on budget, on point, and went far further than I could have anticipated. You better believe I'll be calling him for ANY concrete or landscaping work I need in the future!
