"
was recommended by my pool contractor. We met with
to map out ideas and discuss color. We walked around the pool" area and he painted what would be the perimeter of the pool deck.
was great about answering our questions (and my husband always has A LOT of questions). He told us we'd get a formal quote later that evening with the options for colored concrete and stamping line itemed. I received the quote that evening as promised and was shocked at how low it was. Given the price, we decided to add some additional concrete to the deck, beyond our initial plans. I emailed
and let him know that we wanted to add on, and we set up a time for him to come back and redraw the outlines.
's crew was at my house a few days later to begin the forming based on our initial plans. I was concerned because we'd talked about adding more concrete and I hated to cause his crew to do more work than they needed to, but
assured me that adjusting the forms wasn't a big deal.
came out on the 4th of
to redraw the perimeter of the pool deck and rework the quote. We agreed on a color for both the pool deck and the coping. We decided to save some money by going with a broomed finish on the larger sections of the pool deck and save the stamping for the coping. He adjusted the quote while at my house and I gave him my deposit. After the 4th, we had a tremendous amount of rain which delayed the project. Since
can't control the weather, I can't blame the delays on him. He was in touch frequently and came out during a few breaks in the rain to check on the status of the ground. I know he was a bit frustrated with the weather, and I was antsy to have concrete, but I definitely deferred to his expertise knowing that if he felt the ground was dry enough and there was a long enough window of dry weather to pour, he'd pour. When the rainy spell finally ended, after about a week and a half, his crews returned to adjust the forms. They were all set to pour on Wednesday,
17. I was a pain of a customer because I had them adjust one more section of the form. That morning,
mentioned that he had a design idea. Our tanning ledge is an elevated section above the main pool with a step up. There's not a tremendous amount of concrete around the edges of the ledge, so he suggested that we stamp the entire area around the tanning ledge, and felt that it would look amazing. He did that for us without increasing the quote, and he was right. It really does look incredible. I couldn't be more thrilled with the work that
and his crew did.
was constantly in touch, quick to return calls, pleasant to deal with even with all the adjustments I wanted, and showed a genuine desire to make my project beautiful. I'm going to have him come back out later this year and add an extension to my driveway!

"We had an architect design an area adjacent to the deck for a hot tub. The design, however, turned out to far exceed our budget. We then gained three quotes from" firms able to perform stamped concrete. Of the three, Serguei Volkov, of
and Concrete was the most knowledegable and spent more time determining the best alternative. One of the three proposed putting concrete in an area which would have resulted in water flowing back toward the house--not a good thing. Mr. Volkov was slightly more expensive than the other two quotes. He showed up on time and took extreme care with plants (having to move several). The work took about three days. The results are outstanding. We plan to use Serguei Volkov on the next project, which involves a new section of driveway apron (adjacent to the street).

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.
