"From the very punctual and pleasant original quote, though the work and onto completion of the project,
has been a great company to deal with. Very fair pricing," courteous and knowledgeable staff (and I might add, hard working 10-11 hours a day), organized workflow and superior workmanship.
and his staff (yea
!) went above and beyond to complete my rather complicated project. Always willing to listen and offer just the right perspective and advice, they were instrumental in helping bring my vision to life. Bottom line is this: I have dealt with many contractors over the years and can honestly say that
and the boys were amongst the best I have ever had the pleasure of working with. Thanks again fellows – looking forward to calling you for my next project.

"The process went very well. When there was an issue with the permit,
and Pavers professionallly handled the matter and accommodated my needs more than fairly." The driveway was completed in two days time and more than met my expectations. The driveway is stunning and I have had no problems with it at all. I highly recommend them both for price and quality.

"
was fantastic!
was prompt about giving us the estimate and accurate about when he could start the work. Team was efficient and did a" great job of tearing out the old driveway and laying the grid for the new one. The cost included labor, materials and permit. When I came home from work and saw the finished driveway, I was surprised because I didn't expect it to be so beautiful! There was a decorative
and swirls in the concrete that really made it look like more than just a driveway. Sorry we only had them do the back half. When we're ready for the second half or for any other cement needs, we'll definitely call them. Our next door neighbor was so impressed by them that he asked them to replace a few pieces of broken slate walkway while they were here, which they did. So he won over other neighbors too!!

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.

They were great with the design and great coming out. I'm not happy with the sidewalk they put in. We started last fall with them because we wanted something completed by June of this past year and They've stopped returning our calls. Up until we told them we were unpleased with part of it, it took probably two months for him to return my calls. He came out once. It wasn't until I stopped by on a busy Saturday and told somebody else there how unhappy we were in front of customers that we got a response. He finally came out again, gave us two options, one was going to add another $5,000 to the budget, we decided what we would have them do and he has just now again stopped returning our calls. I'm not happy. I wouldn't recommend them and it was unfortunate; he's a nice guy, his design was great, he was great to work with and we kept up the payments, now I will say that the final payment of $1900, we've never made to them. He went on and on about it being it was a rough winter and he didn't demand the payment from us even though he had jobs to do. They did a couple of extra things for us; we wanted to re-purpose some bushes, they replanted those but that was part of the deal with them. As soon as we had a problem, the finish on the front of the house, it looks terrible and his comment to us was he thought it looked great. He's local, we wanted to stay with a local company. The sidewalk is stained and the stain as my husband said, "it looks like the floor of his grandmother's garage years ago after keeping cars for years and you get oil stains and mess." It's not attractive at all. We were recommending them to neighbors before the issue came up.

I called
Ruskin Stamped Concrete Companies Provider Name Locked
about two months before the work started. I told him what we were looking for and emailed him a few pictures of our patio. I also told him that we were in no hurry; we just wanted to do it before the leaves started falling. He came by one evening a few days later with an album filled with pictures of his work, and we talked about what would work best for us. He worked up his estimate and emailed it to us within a day or 2, then came over a day or so later with the estimate and a detailed scope of work. We signed, gave him a down payment, and agreed to start work in October since we would be out of town until then.
Actual work started on October 10 and completed on October 18, due to bad weather interferences. I was impressed that they did not work on days when the weather was uncertain and got the feeling that they were more interested in quality than schedule. Since I was home while they did the work, I watched them from start to finish. Their work ethic was very meticulous and careful. Edging of the overlay against the house and posts was detailed carefully, and the overlay under my existing steps, which are difficult to work under, was equally excellent. The newly poured and overlaid step under my French doors is aligned perfectly. The final product looks even better than I had envisioned before they started. All that's left is cleanup. I will be surprised if they don't clean up as carefully as they worked.

Each member of the team is highly skilled at their job and the results show that. And they cleaned up after themselves both days. We are beyond pleased with the outcome and highly recommend using

Homeowners, like myself, are a suspicious bunch and we do not readily trust unknown contractors working on our property. We need them because we do not have the skills that they do, but we are cautious and over-protective. However, over the 6 days that the
Ruskin Stamped Concrete Companies Provider Name Locked
crew were working around the house, we became more and more confident of the crew as they demonstrated trustworthiness. Becasue they did things - little things every day - that earned our trust. Aside from the skill that the crew demonstrated, they were concerned about all of the little things that we had not thought about. A good example is, as the crew was preparing to leave, the lead installer spent a better part of an hour rinsing windows and the exterior of the house, and washing all the plants in the yard (the installation process creates a lot of dust). And I thought that was my responsibility. The work was done with exactness and skill by a team that demonstrated that quality was their primary objective. And, on top of all that,

Everything about this process was absolutely WONDERFUL! From the sales person who came out to talk to us to the crew who did the labor, we couldn't have been more pleased. The end product for all surfaces turned out even more beautiful than what we had hoped for. Everyone was professional and the work was completed as scheduled. I can't say enough about
