's design took our breath away. The texture and color of the stamped concrete is beautiful. The extra patio space transformed an ugly weird patio to a masterpiece. The flagstone topped retaining walls easily provides seating for more people than we know. The color coordination between the concrete, the flagstone, and the stucco faced retaining walls is very pleasing to the eye. Unique' s crew is one of the best that I have had the pleasure to have working for me. I have never seen a harder working crew. The truly gave us a full 9 hours of back breaking work. The job superb

I called
Tuscaloosa Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
for a second bid because the paint on my plaster walls had been bubbling and cracking.
Tuscaloosa Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
and another guy came out to check out the house and said that the problem was moisture entering from shoddy tuckpointing that the house flipper did previously at closing. He said that the house needed to be spot-tuckpointed and sealed. They could take care of the plastering as well, so I went with their bid over another company's because he could take care of everything and complete it the next day at about the same price (cash only though). The next morning, he promptly came with a large crew and completed the work. He also checked out the chimney and said there were cracks, and completed that job the same day for another $500. The work looked fine, other than a milky substance on the back walls, which
Tuscaloosa Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
attributed to the sealant and "should wash off with rain in a couple of weeks" when I called to check about it a few days later.
I waited on the review because I wanted to see if the moisture problem was indeed solved in the long run and whether the sealant would fade. I was concerned that there would be some residual moisture in the walls that would cause further cracking since the outside and inside repairs were completed the same day. I was told that this would not be a problem but that they guaranteed their work and would take care of problems. I noticed within a couple of weeks that there was some additional bubbling and cracking at the
Tuscaloosa Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
of repairs and some in the areas that was repaired, but the paint was not removed completely. I called about it and was told to just scrape and sand the areas before repainting. It seemed flippant that they did not come out to check, but I thought I would trust their judgment. In a couple more weeks, I noticed that there were small areas that were cracking in a different part of the house, but not completing peeling like the fixed areas. This was odd to me since the house was "sealed" and the point was to prevent future problems. I called again and left a vm before repainting one area, but got no response. We held off on the other rooms since we were picking out colors for the nursery anyway and they were the ones with additional damage. We called again last month and got no response and gave up on the idea. I scraped the bubbled part and realized that the scraped off parts would be too deep to look even despite sanding. There were also some small cracks in the plaster underneath.
I called again and got through to
Tuscaloosa Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
, who said he had just come back from vacation. I was able to schedule for them to come out and check it out. He came with another guy and said he remembered the job and asked what he could do for us this time. I told him this was not a new job, but that I had concerns about the previous one like I mentioned on the phone. As he's walking into the house, he immediately talks about how their work is 100% guaranteed before getting to the rooms I was talking about, as in there would be no additional problems. When they saw the rooms, they said that the hairline cracks were not an issue and that I could just patch it with some plaster before painting. They said the problem was there after the job and I tried to explain that it was just the edges around the original job which wasn't even painted over yet, so it was clear that it was just some residual problems in the area. I didn't even get to the part about how we contacted them several times because
Tuscaloosa Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
was adamant that their work was fine. To me, if you diagnosed and fixed the problem by "sealing the house" there should be no further cracks regardless of whether it was close to the original areas. I didn't bother showing them the new area because they didn't even offer to patch up something that apparently I could do myself.
It was raining hard the past week, and we noticed some water getting in one corner of the basement. I asked them if that was a potential moisture problem and if they could address it. They took a look and said it was a drainage issue. We went around the back to check the drains.
Tuscaloosa Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
went back to the front while the other guy was with me, giving ideas about what to do. He asked what the "white stuff" on the back bricks were and I said it was the sealant that was supposed to be gone months ago. When we back to the front,
Tuscaloosa Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
said he had to get to another job and did not even give a quote about how to fix the drainage issue yet. He asked if I had rated them on Angie's list yet like he asked after the initial job. I replied "no, I was waiting to see if the problems were actually resolved." He said was "bullsh!tt!
Tuscaloosa Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
him" and talked about how he was a small business owner that needed these ratings to survive. I was taken aback because some of the work had been good, but some little details were just not completed to me, and really, it is my choice whether to rate someone or not. I was so shocked, I just asked him how much the other job would be just to see the extent of the problem. He quoted $4000 but said it could be a better deal with cash, which was what he claimed would be the only form of payment the first time, so i was confused about that. He also did not describe what the work would be and just seemed ready to go. So I let them go and came to provide the review he wanted.
Note: it was hard to assign an overall grade. The tuckpointing was good. Seemed like the sealant is working? Not sure why it's still milky in the one area. The initial response was great, but the follow-up on what are seemingly minor details was painful. We just want to make sure the paint won't crack again after repainting! Professionalism was fine until we got to the follow-up appointment and the whole attitude/language about owing them something, when they would not even come back to resolve supposedly minor details.

The company was very professional and punctual. The job took one day and no mess was left behind. The garage floor is beautiful and clean. We will use this company again for other projects. I love my new garage floor.

Unprofessional. They did not honor the process documented in our communications and our "finished" driveway has a break at the asphalt at the end of the driveway. They coordinated with their site management friends to save their mistake in the county inspection and let us pay the price with an unfinished final product.

Rod came out and took a look, had some ideas, and asked me to email him my email address and he'd return the estimate. I emailed, as requested. After several days I received an email from his daughter saying he had a medical event and there would be a delay. No problem, of course! A few days later she offered to send someone else, or I could wait for Rod. I opted to let him recover and waited a few weeks (when she said he would be back). I emailed and called and there was no response. We tabled the project for the summer and circled back to it at the end of August. I called the business number, got voicemail and left a message. From the more recent reviews, I assume they're still in business. I haven't received a response a few weeks later and have given up. I liked the work shown on their online gallery and he seemed to have great ideas but obviously the work isn't going to be done. I have moved on.

Not good at all. He does not stand behind the quality of his work and is VERY slow to make repairs. I signed a contract with owner
Tuscaloosa Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
Mandela on 5/26/14 to put a patio in my backyard. His crew left their daily food bags and drink cups for me to clean up after on a daily basis. After completion of job they left behind 2 empty skids and a broken wheel
Tuscaloosa Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
for me to discard. They dumped excess concrete next to my garage and never discarded the 3 ft x 1 ft hardened concrete slab. There was concrete splatter on my white
Tuscaloosa Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
fence, garage & house aluminum siding that I had to clean up and remove. The patio light power pack didn't work & had to be replaced along with a new light bulb and light cover for the patio in-ground lights. He dug down approx.
18", poured a concrete slab & glued patio blocks on top of the concrete slab. He removed my old sidewalk and poured a new sidewalk. He finished the job by 6/28/14. On 7/28 I left Mr. Mandela a voice message as 3 of the patio blocks came unglued. I left another voice message on 7/31. He returned my call on 7/31 and said he would come and fix the 3 loose patio blocks. I left him another voice message on 8/11 and 2 more voice messages on 8/13. He called back on 8/13 and said he would stop over on Thursday 8/14 to fix the loose patio bricks. He "supposedly" fixed the 3 loose patio bricks on 8/14. On 8/14 he also offered to seal my new sidewalk which I agreed to. On 8/17 I called him again as the patio bricks were loose again and advised him that when he sealed the new sidewalk he also sealed debris right into the new sidewalk. He stated he would have to come back & fix it & look at the sidewalk debris. On 9/2 I called him again, he said he would fix it the week of 9/7 and I haven't seen or heard from him since.

My home is over 50 years old. The house is on a crawl space but the garage floor was installed at grade level. Over the years it has sunk and lifted to the point where it detracts from the value of the home should we decide to sell. I first called a concrete leveling company who said that they could level the floor but that the cracks that existed would still be there. They recommended having it torn out and re-done. They suggested

was very cooperative in scheduling his work around the tear out of the furnace.
The work crew of three men arrived exactly when

said they would and began the tear out at about 9AM so as not to disturb the neighborhood with their noise. Aside from stirring up a next of yellow jacket bees in the exterior wall, the work went without incident and was completed by about 4PM.
