"hree people came, mudjacked 3 slabs to be dead even, cleaned up and left. They came on a Sunday, which is refreshing to me based on how little some contractors wish to work. They were" cheaper than my other 2 quotes. The only issue was that one slab cracked a corner, which they patched to look as good as possible. I don't know it it was because of anything they did, but I would suspect this type of thing happens. Hardworking, clean, professional. I would recommend them to anyone.

"This was an absolutely wonderful experience. As a new homeowner, I wanted to learn more about my property and their Angie's List deal was a perfect opportunity to identify and" potential for long-term foundation issues, drainage concerns, and potential options for repairing and / or replacing some of my older concrete slabs. At the scheduled time, two very cheerful
engineers arrived and we started taking a look around the exterior of the house. As we started looking around the exterior, they took the time to talk to me about any potential concerns I had, areas to which I might like to have special attention given, and generally got to know me and my house. Looking at the concrete slabs, they were able to identify options for re-leveling those that had shifted over time, noting the areas of some slabs that might be more problematic than others. Examining my drainage, they verified that the current arrangement was largely adequate; the one area that was of concern was identified and explained in quite a bit of detail, and they indicated what the proper resolution would be (which I could handle myself). Completing the exterior analysis, they expertly identified a few areas that they suggested be monitored for any shifting, providing me with the monitoring devices and instructions for installing them properly. The interior analysis involved taking measurements of all ceilings to identify any shifts in the structure of the house - they took a good number of measurements from both levels. They also thoroughly inspected the lower level for any signs of water penetration. I would note that I was both surprised and very pleased to discover that they were both very pet-friendly people. Having completed their measurements, they summarized the result of the visit and were merrily on their way. Within a few days, I had estimates for the identified issues and a report that detailed the examination and findings. It was an absolute pleasure to meet both the engineers, get to know them, and have them perform such a careful and professional analysis of our home. Thanks to them, we have exactly the information we were hoping to get and will definitely be utilizing them in the future. Thank you both so much!

Angie's Answers


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.


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. 




If the state requires a contractor's license, then he needs to have a license in each state he intends to work in - plus state/local business licenses as applicable.


This does not mean there are not a lot of contractors who cross state lines without proper licensing - the penalties in may cases are not real severe and are just a fine, not criminal, so many take the chance.


As you say - argh  - many contractors are not really businessmen and have zero legal education, so many people get burned.


Unless it was a monolithic pour (poured as part of the foundation wall) you should have nothing to worry about with a jack hammer in the hands of a skilled worker and it is highly unlikely it was. I have never seen this done in my 40 plus years in the business. There probably is a piece of expansion joint material between the wall and the slab and even if not the joint between the wall and the slab should creat a weak point that will break.



Mudjacking reviews in Homestead


We needed to have the stoop area by the front door mudjacked, as it was sinking down and sloping toward the door. We had more than one estimate, but were most impressed by
Homestead Foundation Contractors Provider Name Locked
. Our estimate was done by
Homestead Foundation Contractors Provider Name Locked
and he was very thorough with his estimate, which included measuring the void under the stoop. In addition he noted that the steps also had a void needing to be filled. He completed his estimate with a detailed printout including photos. We were happy with the price quoted, especially since we were offered a discount for signing the contract that day. The work was completed on the day scheduled, and we are pleased to have a level stoop.
If we have any future need for mudjacking, this will definitely be the company we use.

They did such a good job on the first two projects that I used them again to re-build the rock walls in four landscape areas and I had the replace a retaining wall and steps made out of railroad ties with stone work to match my other existing stone work. The work looks great, in fact two of my neighbors have hired them to do work for them as well. The crew did a great job matching my existing work, cleaned up as they went and stayed on schedule even though there were a number of rainy days along the way. These guys will get an concrete work that I have in the future.
- Brian B.

The gentleman showed on time and responded quickly when I called for information, but there were a couple of issues. Specifically, he became a bit sarcastic when I asked he if he would guarantee his work, and he misinformed me by saying that he would provide a written guarantee for the work when he drafted the estimate. When I received the estimate, however, it stated specifically that there were no guarantees on the work.

was the first one came to give us the quote. We had three different quotes and his price is slightly high than one of them. We chose him because he was the only one who proposed to use concrete footer for our wall and he was the only one who didn't try to convince us to use regular depth of step which is 8 inches shorter....More /> The crew was friendly and hard working. They came every morning in different times but all before 10am. Since the work was outside, it didn't really matter. They finished the job in the time period as they promised. We are very pleased with their work. It turned out to be just what they had promised. It actually looked better than we thought it would. We would hire them again.
Wish I could post before and after pictures. They did a great job!

From the moment I met
Homestead Foundation Contractors Provider Name Locked
Homestead Foundation Contractors Provider Name Locked
, I felt very confident and comfortable that every detail would be tended to! They were very professional, responsive, friendly, reasonably priced,and punctual. The start date for my project was September 15, 2014 and the entire crew was at my home promptly at 8:30am! Every day, they were all consistently on time and worked steadily until the end of the work day. The estimated completion was scheduled October 3rd and they finished 3 days early! Their dedication to quality and workmanship was unsurpassed and I would highly recommend them. I plan on having them return to do some work on my front porch as well! In gathering estimates for this job, while they were not the lowest bid they were not the highest bid either. I am so thankful I didn't go with the cheapest because the piece of mind and attention to every detail along with the quality of workmanship can not be stessed enough when you have a large job that will add beauty and value to your most important asset, your home! Thanks

was very prompt in coming out for a look & a quote for both the front-porch step and to possibly lift a section of the driveway that had sagged. I felt that he was very honest in evaluating the problems and the possible fixes and we schedule the service for the front porch. He explained everything that they would do and also had photographs (before/after) to give me a better idea of what I could expect when the work was done. Although we did have an issue when the technicians arrived regarding some additional work,
Homestead Foundation Contractors Provider Name Locked
honored his verbal commitment to me to fix the front porch railing if they had to cut it at no cost to me.
The work they did very much improved the safety of the steps as well as how it looks overall. Where they had to drill holes in the aggregate walkway, they patched them so that they are barely visible. I am pleased with the outcome of their work.


Actual experience: Communication from the initial call was above average. I met
Homestead Foundation Contractors Provider Name Locked
and went over my patio. Project.
Homestead Foundation Contractors Provider Name Locked
shared a nice portfolio of projects ranging from residential to Municipal clients. I was impressed. She took a deposit and said the crew would be out to begin work in 10-14 days . They arrived on about day 20 after making a deposit. They rough graded the patio area and placed a few forms - not all. They didn't return for another 10 days to finish the form work. Another two weeks elapsed and after several calls and texts they finally poured the patio. They did a nice job. I paid them in full. This spring the patio showed large areas where the concrete absorbed the seal coat. I called and texted

To get this fixed...and didn't hear back until 6 weeks had passed.

had every excuse from losing her phone, being in school, And being deathly ill. A year later and the patio hasn't been fixed don't hire this outfit. They'll promise the world, and not deliver
