Concrete Driveway Installation And Repair reviews in Napa

Started out fine. The old driveway, walkways and patio were removed, and rebar installed the first day. However, what we were told would be two days of pouring and stamping, was finished in only one day. The laborers were working so fast, not allowing enough time for the concrete to set properly, which created many areas that had problems. Unfortunately, because of the powder colorant coating the concrete, the problems were not revealed until a couple of days later when the powder was washed off. We had contacted the owner,

, with concern regarding a two-day job being rushed into one. No response. When we finally got ahold of him, he assured us that all the problems could be fixed prior to the final sealant going on. They weren't.
Long and short, it took 5 MONTHS for them to finally fix the issues adequately. The owner would tell us he'd come on a given day to look at the job, then call an hour after he was to be there with an excuse, putting us off for a week, or longer. This happened numerous times. I finally forwarded him the 4th request I'd gotten from Angie's List and made it clear that if the problems weren't at least mitigated somewhat, there would be no choice but to provide a bad review. Only then did we get the owner to make the fix a priority. Major frustration with the lack of concern regarding significant issues with a nearly $20,000 job. Although the job WAS finally corrected adequately, and the driveway and entry look pretty good now, the lack of responsiveness was so severe I would never consider using

was selected after attending the Napa Home & Garden Show. The salesman (

) was very knowledgeable and professional. When given a high estimate, we scaled back the job. We were given a work start date (for about 3 weeks later) and called two days later to start work the following day. This rushed our own preparation for moving pots and plants away from the work areas.
There must have been 10 workers on this job. At the end of the first day, all preparation was ready for concrete to be poured the following morning. We felt there was not enough gravel and rebarb within several of the forms and this was corrected the following day prior to all concrete being poured.
Again, there were 10 workers working around our yard when the concrete was poured. When they were just about finished, we realized they had not used the concrete stamp we had selected for our main patio and walk way (this was our biggest disappointment) and the stamp used for our green areas was pressed too hard so there are some lines and dimples rather than semi smooth texture. Also the main step into the house was not banded as had been promised.
Our fee was adjusted down due to the wrong stamp being applied, step not banded and to cover replacement of two patio cover post wraps that were scraped by the tractor removing dirt and concrete.
Although we did have a few issues, we would probably use this company again as we do really love our new concrete patio and walkways and are happy with the stamped pattern we received rather than the one we selected. It has fewer grooves and is easier to clean. The next time we do concrete work though, we will make sure the top of the concrete is not two inches or so above ground level. Too much work rebuilding the ground level.
