"We contacted on a Saturday and they started the following week. They worked around the weather and made sure that the project was done quickly" and neatly. They picked up after themselves after each day. The sidewalk turned out awesome. Beyond our expectations. made the changes and modifications that he needed to make to ensure that the project ended up beautiful and well executed, not just the bare minimum that needed to be done.

"They did an outstanding job. We have had several people driving down the street stop and comment on how nice the driveway is. They showed up on time and completed" the job as stated. It only took them 3 days to remove the existing driveway, dig out the new one and get it poured. I would highly recommend them for any concert needs that you should have.

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.

I called about a large soil erosion and drainage problem around my house. He responded to my voice mail right away and came out promptly to look at the problem. I got a written proposal, along with references the next day. All the references gave excellent reports. did the work in two days and it looks ...More great. He even came back a third day to replant some azaleas that had to be moved. I highly recommend Constructiors, .

The work was done as promised. Mills is super nice and very responsive. ,The work was started & finished as promised, and he was willing to come down on his original quote (from $900 to $800) prior to starting the job.
A very basic job. I was a little disappointed that the brick wasn't replace in the same configuration ...More as the rest of the retaining wall. The wall surrounds a raised bed between my house & the street. The original bricks (and the rest of the wall) were laid at an oblique angle giving the top of the wall a zig-zag look. replaced the demolished section (next to the re-poured concrete) with the bricks laid flat. But I did not specify this in advance and I am generally satisfied with the work.
Overall, it's worth hiring just to get someone who is committed to doing the work quickly, on time and as promised. I thought the price was high, but there were no surprises, costs or add ons. Unfortunately too many contractors do not do what they promise; they take forever to finish and they nickle & dime you with extras on the final bill. doesn't do that and he does quality work.

and his crew did an outstanding job for a very reasonable price. From start to finish was direct, professional, and exceeded my expectations in all aspects of the job. They started the job promptly, worked everyday, cleaned up after themselves daily, and finished sooner than I expected, with a walkway ...More and steps that was better than I had imagined. I highly recommend .

Installation was done by members of the family who own the company, no sub-contractors. The father has years of hands-on experience in stone masonry and is a true craftsman. His son is both the salesperson and one of the workers. The work was done perfectly with correct walkway pitch for water removal. The price was truly wonderful. I got 3 bids. ...More This company had the lowest bid and was $2,500 lower than the highest bidder for the same job. I had specified to each bidder exactly the kind of paver I wished and the kind of foundation I wanted (depth of sand, gravel, etc.) You can't beat best price and true craftsman workmanship.

I reported them to the Department of Professional and Occupational Regulation telling them this company should have their license yanked. The asphalt is eroded and broken away with lots of cracks. I've tried to contact them by mail and phone and they won't call me back so I'm going to them.

Also working in The Fan district of is difficult as parking is at a premium and neighbors are very close.
