"Estimate was on the high end of the estimates we received. We initially decided to go with
for the sidewalk and step repair only, even though" they were the highest cost, as
seemed to be available to perform the work sooner. The estimate from
was not in writing so when it came down to signing the contract, the terms of the work excluded the step repair which he had said "would be no big deal". He said the work which we had requested with the sidewalk quote was excluded because we were not going to have the patio work done at this time. All could have been clearer if a written estimate was provided originally, and saved a lot of wasted time for both of us. We probably would have proceeded with all the work through
if he presented the information differently, as I was looking to have the work done quickly. But all he had to offer is "that's the price", not information of why i should choose him over another contractor. It's probably better we didn't go with them as the young man gave my husband a bad feeling due to his short answers which appeared, in our opinion, to be borderline unprofessional. Another person may have viewed this differently and is only an opinion based on two short visits. All that being said,
appears to have done some good work for other people and i can not rate them on quality of the work actually performed as we went with another company. As I must rate "quality" to add this review, I will rate on quality of estimate provided. I would not do business with
in the future, but i do not necessarily think you should avoid them at all costs. There appears not to be a lot of people providing this service in the area, and this was just one experience. It would probably be best to ask for a written quote prior to setting up the first appointment. Note: Step repair is now scheduled to be done by another company at a cost of $50. Overall cost of the job is $480 less.

"We are very VERY happy with their work , their price and the hands on service by JB. We would highly recommend them. We also just got a price on doing our" roof over (removing and installing) We like the price, and feel we will be happy to work with them again. After we sign the contract and go with them I will report on that I hope it comes out as fast, clean and as professional as the walk way .

Stamped Concrete Adds Affordable Appeal to Outdoor Patios

Many homeowners are opting for stamped concrete patios that mimic the look of stone, brick or tile. Perfect for any outdoor area, such as surrounding a pool, stamped concrete offers the ability to get creative with patterns and colors.

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.



Stamped Concrete reviews in Richmond


It was a very smooth project. He quickly removed and hauled off the previous cement and replaced it. It's a really nice piece of work and has improved the look of the property.
He had finished the work when it was getting a bit dark out, and the next day I noticed there was a little cement splatter on the wooden porch steps. I phoned and asked that he come back and clean up the splatter. He promptly returned and did some cleanup. At some point he saw me spreading bags of mulch and automatically jumped in and started mulching (I was preparing for the showing and sale of my home). In the end, he did more of the mulching of the front and back yards than I did, and never asked for a dime for helping. I feel that he cares not only about his work and his product, but about his customers.

- Maura B.

The contractor promptly provided an estimate, arrived to do the work on time, and finished the job within one day. The work involved removing approximately 6 inches of terrazzo and pouring and stamping new concrete. We selected a stone-like finish. The job was performed beautifully. We love it.
