"The patio came out great, looks very good. They were very communicative about when they would start and how long I should expect the job to take. The job was done" on time, with the last step being the sealing of the concrete. Unfortunately an unexpected shower came up less then an half hour after they had left. Before I had a
to call them that some of the sealant had been washed away from the rain they called me to make sure I was completely satisfied with the job. When I mentioned the problem with the rain they returned on the next nice day to reseal the concrete. I am very satisfied with their work and would recommend them.

Stamped Concrete Adds Affordable Appeal to Outdoor Patios

More homeowners opt for stamped concrete that mimics stone, brick or tile for patios and pool decks, or resurface old concrete for a new look at a lower cost.

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.

 

Don

?

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.

Overall,
The project went very well .
Ruskin Stamped Concrete Companies Provider Name Locked
and his team did an great job and my wife and I couldn't be happier with the result. First off, I would like to say that this project was completed in September of 2014 and I'm just getting around to writing a few in March 2015. With that being said, even after all these months, I feel obligated to write a review due to the outstanding job that was done by
Ruskin Stamped Concrete Companies Provider Name Locked
and his team.
Unfortunately, I can't remember the the size of the patio, but it was fairly large. I didn't realize how expensive an concrete patio really was, but
Ruskin Stamped Concrete Companies Provider Name Locked
negotiated with me on the price and was able to give me a very competitive price point amongst other contractors in the area. So my wife and I got a mult-stained flag stone patio installed and it turned out BEAUTIFULLY! I don't consider myself to be the outdoor type, but having this patio changed my mindset. It created another element for our home and we spent many of nights grilling food, sitting by the firepit and just enjoying the weather.
Ruskin Stamped Concrete Companies Provider Name Locked
and his team was always on time and worked long hours to get the job completed on time. Once the patio was completed, they power washed the patio and sealed it. Afterwards, they gave me instructions on maintenance etc and it sounded pretty
Ruskin Stamped Concrete Companies Provider Name Locked
. Power wash it when you feel it's needed, but you probably should seal the concrete about every 2 years or so.
So in summary, I WOULD DEFINITELY hire
Ruskin Stamped Concrete Companies Provider Name Locked
again! Thank you for adding another element to my home that will create more family memories and I am definitely looking forward to spring!!!!
Kind Regards,
JB

They refused to come out or communicate.
Ruskin Stamped Concrete Companies Provider Name Locked
has promised me at least 4 times to come out and make this correct. His excuse every time was they were so slammed they couldn’t make it out. He told me they will start work on April 1st full swing. He told me to call him in the middle of March to set it up. I called him 3/12/15 and left a message with
Ruskin Stamped Concrete Companies Provider Name Locked
in the office and she said she would pass it along. I have not heard back from him. It’s just a continuation of the same thing. I can say 80% of the job they did was beautiful. When I called him back about the mistakes the first time he seemed perturbed and that’s the first time I saw his attitude change. Obviously, I’m just very disappointed.The owner
Ruskin Stamped Concrete Companies Provider Name Locked
came out, put a level on the concrete by the garage (the concrete that would not drain) and told me the concrete was too flat and had no fall on the concrete. He verified this personally that the concrete was laid wrong.

We contacted
Ruskin Stamped Concrete Companies Provider Name Locked
for an estimate based on reviews from other sites. after 3 days they finally called to schedule an appointment to look at our yard. We wanted them to remove a large amount of dirt, approximately 10 yards, grade,
Ruskin Stamped Concrete Companies Provider Name Locked
topsoil, then install the sod. They were great about allowing us to make payments, however that is where the good part stops. Instead of removing all the clay/sand dirt, they spread it over the yard and only removed about 1/4 of it. The same day they stacked sod on the side of our house. There was no knowing when they left, since they didn't tell us. The next day they arrived around 10 am, instead of the 8 am we were told. When I asked about the grading and how spreading the clay/sand dirt would effect drainage, I was told it would all be fine. They worked until about 2 pm and left. Leaving a dirt mess in our driveway and mud splatters on our fence. They had informed us that the rain we had during installation would "shock the roots of the grass to root in". we stayed off of the grass for 14 days (they suggested 10). it has not been over 6 months. There is no drainage, half the grass is dead. Overall, a complete waste of money

When
Ruskin Stamped Concrete Companies Provider Name Locked
was doing the cleaning and sealing it looked like it was working out o.k. The problem was that his high- pressure cleaning machine stripped the top coat from the oak transitions between the tile and oak floors and left spots in the wood.. I noticed it first on one of the transitions and had
Ruskin Stamped Concrete Companies Provider Name Locked
look at it while he was finishing up. He acknowledged the problem and said they should have covered the transitions before doing the steam cleaning and sealing. He said to use
Ruskin Stamped Concrete Companies Provider Name Locked
on the area and it would fix the problem. It did not. When the tile floor dried I also noticed that some of the grout lines in the corners were not cleaned and in those areas the grout was still dark and dirty. They really stood out like sore thumbs from the cleaned areas. I tried to contact
Ruskin Stamped Concrete Companies Provider Name Locked
by email and phone for more than a week with no success. He finally got back to me and said he would come out and fix the transitions. He said nothing about redoing the corner areas that looked uncleaned. There was a foul up on the appointment and I was not at home when he came. I thought it was the next day. I have tried to contact him since but he has refused to get back to me. I'd stay away from this outfit they did not leave my home in very good shape.

It was fine they did what they promised the only issues I had was that the sealer faded 6 months later and I had asked at the first appt. Months ago if he can switch out a paver that had a hole and they told me that when they were in the neighborhood again they would do it and even when they came back on the 5th it wasn't done

DID A
FANTASTIC JOB AND WOULD RECOMMEND THIS COMPANY WITHOUT HESITATION. AFTER
RECENTLY RENOVATING THE HOUSE, I WANTED A NEW CONCRETE DRIVE WAY THAT REQUIRED
REMOVAL OF PAVERS, TREE ROOTS, AND OLD CONCRETE. NATURALLY, I WAS CONCERNED
ABOUT COST AND COLLATERAL DAMAGE. BOTH WERE ADDRESSED TO MY SATISFACTION. ONCE
PERMITS WERE IN HAND, HIS CREW MOBILIZED AND FINISHED THE JOB ON SCHEDULE.
FINISHED PRODUCT LOOKS GREAT WITH NEIGHBORS AND PASSERBYS COMPLEMENTING.
OVERALL VERY SATISFIED!
