The point of getting this done was to fix some grading problems that had occurred because of frost heaves. The existing sidewalk was tilted toward the house. I wanted the front yard regraded and the sidewalk replaced and the driveway replaced because it was broken up. They were quite thourough about providing advice about what needed to be done. They were the low bid of 3. The work was done in a timely manner. The C in professionalsm was because of some cursing that was commonplace during the work. There are also some problems with the way they backfilled. I have found nails that they didn't find when they did cleanup. I don't think they ever heard what I wanted done with the front yard. It was not regraded. He said my water problems were corrected. It may be that he is correct, and we won't know until we get a good driving rain. Nonetheless, when we talked about the issues and what I wanted done there seemed to be an understanding. But when it came to doing the work, it was only about pouring concrete.

I called about having them come in and give me an estimate for the job. What he gave me was a ballpark figure of $2000, but that he needed to send over a worker to pull out the toilet so that they could get a good idea of all that would need to be done. Because of a roofing project they were trying to finish, it would be sometime the following week before they could start the job. He brought in an employee who did not speak english. I left the worker in the bathroom while he was pulling up the toilet. When it seemed that the worker was taking quite some time to figure out what needed to be done, I checked on him only to find that not only had he taken out the toilet, but he had dismantled my sink and had cut up my vinyl flooring. He had been told to start working on the job that I was only requesting an estimate on. By this point, I couldn't stop the work - things had progressed too far. I had the employee put the contractor on the phone and was asking why things got started, especially since they would not be able to work on it until the following week. He explained that since it was going to rain over the weekend, they could start working on it right away. I hadn't even had time to clear things out of the room to prepare for things to be fixed. The contractor actually had the nerve to chastise me for not having the room ready for the repair. When he came back to the house, he informed me that the best course of action was to

ceramic tile down as part of the process of leveling the floor. He planned to

the floor the next day and wanted to know what color I wanted. I hadn't even thought about tile for the floor. I was looking to have the floor leveled and then choose a vinyl floor pattern at that time. The case made for using tile was acceptable to me. What I didn't like was his asking me what color I wanted. I was given no time to shop around. I made him go to Menards and bring me back a book with what tile they had in stock since many of their tiles had to be special ordered and he was planning on laying the tile the next day (I couldn't wait for a special order. I needed my 1/2 bath/laundry room to be functional again ASAP). He brought samples back and then he tried to talk me out of the choice I made because it was more expensive than some of the other choices. I stuck with my selection and am happy with it. I also did not have the

to pick out our new toilet in person and may have made a different selection if I had seen them in person rather than having to make a quick decision by looking online. The next morning he finally brought me the total cost page for the project and it was $700 higher than the ballpark figure I was originally quoted.

Now in their defense -- they solved my flooring/toilet issue and did a beautiful job with only a couple of very minor issues discovered that no one would notice unless they were scrutinizing it as close as I was. My bathroom looks very nice and the employee who did most of the work was there for very long days over the weekend and Monday until the job was finished. They took care to make sure it looked right before leaving.

Communication was by far the biggest complaint I had. The contractor also had a bad habit of talking down to me as if I was stupid. As he finished up, he kept telling me over and over to be sure that I keep my bathroom clean as if he were chastizing a teenager who hadn't cleaned his room. I found it very insulting. I also have cats in the house and had to repeatedly remind them to close the door leading from the house to the outside. On one day, my husband came downstairs to find that the employee had gone to lunch and left the outside door wide open. Fortunately none of the cats decided to wander outside.

My recommendation is that if you want to use them, they do a nice job. Just make sure that you keep full control of the communication and time schedule of the project. The lack of professionalism in their treatment of me as the customer will be the main reason for not using their services in the future.

All in all we are very happy with the work and product. We would use them again. We actually have a family member needing concrete work and will be sending him over for an estimate later this week.

was at our house and reviewed the project and gave us a quote immediately. We accepted the quote and the entire job was done on time and with care. The clean up after the work was performed was excellent. We will be sure to call them again if we need work done in the future.
