"Office was very professional in discussing my needs over the phone and offered to provide an initial estimate if I could e-mail them photos of the relevant sidewalk" slabs. When I went to their Website to fill out a request-for-evaluation, I received a prompt response from
, indicating that he would be by within 5 days to estimate the work. In about 5 days, I received a detailed email describing all aspects of the job, but indicating that the work I requested was not suitable for their service (lifting/'mudjacking'). I appreciated their candor in coming right out and saying that they could not help me with my problem. I continued to

crew -
- did a professional job. They were polite and patient throughout the process," explaining the procedure as it went along. There was a two-step back step which I asked them to dismantle and replace. They did that as well. The truck with the material was parked in front of the house where
handled the hose feeding out to the back.
pushed the material into drilled holes, using a remote controlled device to regulate and control it in the back. It was clean and quick. Before having this project done the slab was sloping toward the house, allowing rain and melted snow to create a slipping hazard. I asked them to raise the slab enough to slope away from the house which it now does. The crushed limestone sluice that is pumped beneath the concrete spreads so thoroughly that the entire slab is now solid and feels newly poured. This is a very good investment and much less costly than pouring new concrete.
has created a level of expertise in this business. Next year I will have them do my front porch and stairs.

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 Norfolk


They were awesome! We called at 8 in the morning and the project was finished by 3 PM. They even didn't crush the bushes over which they had to bring in the concrete. The men were courteous and professional. I'd use them again in a heartbeat!
- CJ E.

We did not do the work. But, I would consider them in the future. Estimator was punctual and professional.
I think part of the reason for the high estimate is that the scope of work was relatively small and their location is over an hour from my home.

and his wife came to work at my house as promised. They were very professional and did excellent work. They cleaned up after completion. Although it is too soon to determine whether the mudjacked walkway will hold up, he had given me a 2 year warranty on their work.

Concrete Leveling did a fabulous job. They were prompt, efficient, very knowledgeable and explained what & why they were doing all along the way. I highly recommend them!
- Patricia R.

They showed up on time and were finished, pulling away an hour and fifteen minutes later after completing the work and tidying up all waste materials. The team was well organized, everyone knew their job and efficiently tended to it, and they were courteous.
- Steven H.

Provider came to see my problem and told me how to fix it myself. It was a small problem. I really appreciated their help and would never hesitate to call them again. Really excellent company.

and team were very professional, prompt and courteous. Work was performed expertly and cleanly. Couldn't ask for anything more!
- Marie M.

The company's representative showed up on time. I was shocked by the estimate that was given to me. As stated in a previous review there was not breakdown as to the various costs. Moreover, the estimate was between $5400 and $6400 instead of a firm, set price. Needless to say, I did not go forward with this company.
