"Came by the next day gave us a fair price, stated the work that next day and completed it that day, clean up well. Did a beautiful job.

"I emailed Mr. and he replied in a few days. We set up a date for an estimate. I asked if he charged for it, which he didn't, but I said" I would pay (b/c few contractors on Angie's Phila. list in my area do carpentry on wooden porches). With my ongoing suspicion that some contractors won't work in some areas, I asked point if he worked in Germantown, and he said yes. Mr. was prompt, respectful, and seemed interested. He looked at the porch, speculated on how to fix it, even said he was fascinated by the challenge, and promised to check out the cost of a to raise up the porch. Estimate in about "a week or so". That was April. He has my number and email. Can anyone out there tell me what part of contractor means 'not really interested'?

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.

started the job in January 2007 and it is May 2007 and he still has not finished the work. It has not been easy reaching him. At one point, he had his truck break down and could not work. He has also taken employment with outside sources and had to go to work instead of completing the project.

We paid half the job, initially for $9000 dollars, at the beginning. The estimated time of completion was three weeks. After the first week, work was only done sporadically, it was almost impossible to get in touch with (he had family problems. ) we kept getting promise after promise, to no avail. After two and a half months, ...More we had to beg to get the job done and most of it was done in the last week, sloppily and half-heartedly, except for one worker who was really good. ( ) they never finished all of it, and as a result, charged us less. We lived in the middle of the chaos and dirt of half done repairs for two months, without being able to use our garage or patio and never knew if it would actually ever get done.

came on time to provide the estimate for the work to be competed and provided us with a few choices of different systems to be installed. He showed us a video on his computer of how the system works and left brochures to assist us in our decision. He measured the entire basement area and provided detailed explanation of how his ...More company could help with our water leaking problem. We live in a high water table area. He said it would take approximately 1-1/2 days to complete. Once we agreed to the system we chose, we talked with on the phone and scheduled the work to be done and paid for the deposit. Two workers, and Nick arrived on the scheduled date right on time. They were very polite and answered any questions before they began working. They put down protective covering over the kitchen floor and hall rugs since that was the only egress from the basement. They covered our washer and dryer in plastic. The rest of the basement was empty. They offered me some ear plugs due to the loud noise of the jackhammers. Once they realized that the basement floor was 8" thick, they determined they needed bigger and/or more help. Two other guys came and the four of them worked through the day and got all the digging completed. They installed the drainage system then filled around it with stone. Buckets and buckets of stone had to be carried down the stairs. was very polite and provided me with updates on the project every couple of hours. On the second day, and Nick arrived on time again, and continued with the work of carrying 20-25 buckets of cement from their truck to our basement to seal the perimeter. They also installed their vent outside and showed me how it was done and how it works. It was a beautiful installation. Very professionally done. Once the job was done, described again what work was accomplished, how it works, and what maintenance will be needed. They cleaned up the whole basement and removed all debris and trash. and floor coverings. I highly recommend this company for any basement system deeded. The office staff, and workers are very professional and accommodating.

I contacted on Monday morning and the owner of the company came out that same afternoon at the time that he stated. My neighbor and I had been looking for someone to replace our sidewalks for the last 3 years and just didn't get a good feel for other companies that we had contacted. He gave a good ...More price for the work that was needed and made us feel very comfortable with his knowledge and skills of his craft. He was very down to earth and never made us feel that he putting any pressure on us to have him get the job. He told us what was really needed as opposed to what we thought was need even if that was cutting him out of some addition money. When we asked him about how much he required as a down payment, he said that we would pay after the job was completed. I have never worked with a company that did not asked for at least half down before they would touch a job. This to me was a sign of a very trusting and honest person. We decided to have the work done and based his honesty and professionalism I decided to also have him replace a part of my backyard area. His crew was here at 8:15 that Wednesday morning as promised and started the work, they was very professional, they worked from the time that they arrived until the time the job was completed. There was no playing around they were very organized and each knew exactly what needed to be done and what their particular task were. They were very concerned about any questions or concerns that we had and addressed them immediately. They had to carry out debris and carry in cement throught a very narrow into my backyard and never at anytime did I hear anyone complain. His sons and the other crew members was very skilled in their work and took great pride in doing it. came out at the end of the day and made sure we were satisified. When we noticed a few days later after everything had dried some minor issues he came right out and corrected it.
I highly recommend this company and would use them again. I got an outstanding job done by a very highly skilled company and I'm very happy and satisified with the workmanship. Hats off to .

Contractors like are the reason why Angie's List has done so well over the years. I needed my chimney pointed along with several sidewalk repairs and cement leveling in the driveway. I also needed this work done as soon as the weather would possibly allow. I wasted time calling around town until my Father recommended we ...More use his Angie's List. We found and his team and gave them a call. is a no nonsense, honest and efficient craftsman. Period. That's all you really want, right?
His quote was competitive, his start date was realistic and ALL cement work was crisp and tight. I had to be out of town the day this project was scheduled but was very accommodating and agreed to send pictures right to my phone when the work was completed.
In short, I would definitely recommend and my Father will be using him for some repairs, too.
Call them. This process really doesn't need to be a headache.
