Everything turned out great. They were flexible with my requests and changes required by the city. Work happened quickly once the permit cleared.

was absolutely fabulous! My husband and I were in the midst of selling our home. An inspection report identified a cracked truss in the attic and a few other items that didn't fit squarely into the major systems of the house. Truss problems can crush a home sale so we were extremely worried about having the work done well, efficiently and at a good price. Initially, we contacted roofing companies thinking did that sort of work but after talking to several folks, we learned that a carpenter or general contractor specializing in construction or carpentry could do the work. I was referred to Mr.

by a structural engineer we spoke with about the problem. I made contact with
Mount Vernon Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
on a mid-day Sunday and by Monday morning I had a message from him. We spoke on Monday, I explained what we needed and he agreed to come out on Wednesday. He climbed into our attic, examined the truss, asked where the closest home improvement store was located and was off. He returned with special lumbar and nails and sistered the truss. The whole job took him like three hours, start to finish. He drove all the way from Virginia to

, Maryland to perform this work. He was fast, extremely professional, and charged us a fair rate. He agreed to also do some additional work for us as well, i.e. parge work, carpet pad repair and upgrading.
I am extremely particular in how I want work to be done particularly in this situation where the work had to be done to someone's satisfaction.

was a Go- send. I highly recommend him! He was honest, fair, efficient and did stellar work! If we purchase another home in this area he will be our go-to person for all contracting work. PERIOD!

On 7/1/2014 we had an existing driveway removed and replaced. Since we were not home at the time, we could not stop them from using a bobcat. This caused extreme damage to our lawn. When we brought this to the attention of the owner, he said all we had to do was "roll the sod back". This was impossible. We knew there would be some damage because we have seen other jobs in which all the owners had to do was replace some some sod, but they were all able to do it themselves. We had to contact landscaping companies to do this for us. The quotes we received were $970.00, $1,200.00 and over $1,300.00 from a company the owner suggested. The company we went with was not able to do the job until 9/2/2014, so we had to sit all summer looking at this mess. When the landscaper came, they said it was the worst driveway repair they had ever had to do. They had to replace five feet of our lawn on both sides of the driveway after all the old sod, gravel and chunks of cement left by
Mount Vernon Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
were hauled away. Also, we were told it was necessary for us to open our garage. This resulted in some wet cement being sprayed on the hood of one of the cars inside. One of the employees took it upon himself to go in the garage and wipe it off with a rag which caused scratches in the paint. Anyone knows that if you rub gritty material into pain, it scratches. We would have removed it with water. We saw the employee come out of the garage with a rag in his hand because we were out on the patio. I think we surprised him and he told us that he was cleaning off our lawnmower. There was nothing on the lawnmower just the car. Within the first week, even before they came back to spray the sealer on the cement, there was a crack in the walkway from the house to the drive. When we brought this to the attention of the owner, his resolution to the problem was to spread a handful of some dust into the crack which did nothing. Only after we made a complaint the Better Business Bureau, was the owner willing to come and "repair" the crack. The only thing he did was to put some calk in it which only made it more obvious.
I would never do any business with this company again. I have pictures of the lawn and car damage for which they will not take any responsibility.


First, Kudos for the quick response to come out and look at the job. There was quite a delay in receiving the estimate--I had to email and request it. The bid wasn't broken out the way we requested, and the overall price was very high. We will look for another contractor for this job or maybe do it ourselves.

Met with

in early
Mount Vernon Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
to discuss our project. He told us it would be two months before he could schedule the project. He arrived in early September, on schedule, and helped us plan our patio, His crew arrived a few days later, and completed the project in three days. Workers were excellent and very professional. Cleaned up when the project was done. Especially pleased with

, who did the cutting, staining/sealing. A real artist. Would highly recommend this contractor to anyone who wants a stamped concrete project done right.
- Don K.

All three workers present over the two days of the job were professional, courteous, and skilled. Truly, they were great.
The job site was clean at the end of each day--and not job site clean but actually tidy.
The walkways and pad that were poured were curved and they are beautiful. You can tell that pride was taken in the work.
This job surpassed expectations. How often do you get what you hope for rather than what you expect?
We're saving up money to have Paradigm do our driveway.
We wholeheartedly recommend Paradigm.

- Jennifer J.

We were very pleased with the price, service and quality. We will definitely use them again in the future. Very nice folks.

and crew did a fantastic job all the way around. If there any best practices out there in the concrete industry they should be modeled after Sammsons. The crew was very polite, professional and punctual, arriving each day at the time

specified to me. Very informative and answered all my questions and then some.

explained to me the process and why they do certain things and why they wouldn't do some things, all to the satisfaction of the job. I DID have 2 less expensive bids than Sammsons but after reading the Angie's list reviews and the initial face to face meeting with
Mount Vernon Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
at the time of the estimate of the job, I was sold. He explained to me that he uses the stronger 6.5 bag mix vs. the standard 6.0 bag mix which most contractors use, in addition this concrete has the sealer incorporated into the cement so no need to worry about sealing the drive myself.

has a great rapport with my village inspector and the local cement company which provided the cement. If you're wondering why this matters, it involves when these outside parties will show up when they say they will show up, hence expediting the job. My job was delayed 2 weeks due to mother nature and every other day

kept me up to date via text when he might be starting my job, very important to me. People need to understand the weather factor in this type of work. I've already gave a few of his business cards to people who are interested in having this work done. Again, GREAT job Sammsons.

They were very prompt about coming up to do a quote for the job and were in touch promptly after with the bid information and follow-up to see if we had questions. They were patient with all of our questions. The crew was very knowledgeable. They did a great job; we are very pleased with how the garage floor turned out. One notable note is they do not take credit cards for payment.
- Julie H.

The workers were polite and efficient. After the driveway was sealed, water from my neighbor draining their pool ran across the driveway and stained the seal. I called

and he sent someone that day to reseal that section of the drive.
