the product started coming off with in a year. Repairs made to deck also didn't last. It took over 12 months to get them to respond. Absolutely nothing is covered by the "life time warranty" that the owner likes to brag about. In short....this was as HUGE waste of our money.

Currently in the hands of the Bureau of Consumer Protection. I have read other reviews that indicate that even when a judgment was made in the customer's favor, the company still has not paid. Again, not to be trusted.

We had a couple of changes before the concrete was poured and
Prairie City Stamped Concrete Companies Provider Name Locked
was extremely patient with our changes. He also found that part of the ground where the concrete patio was going to go did not have solid ground underneath and he rectified that with a cost effective option. There was no over budget, unexpected costs. The job didn't get started within the time frame we were told but was due to weather which delayed him finishing a previously scheduled job. His finishing touches and imagination to complete the job showed his expertise and pride in a job well done. My husband is a perfectionist and even he felt the job was fabulous. We did not expect him and his team to be working on several jobs at the same time however he had a good process for getting the right people in place to complete the many aspects of preparing for a new patio. It was completed start to finish in 10 days which was about twice the time expected but was well worth the weight. We WILL DEFINATELY use this company again.

Based upon my father's experience with
Prairie City Stamped Concrete Companies Provider Name Locked
of
Prairie City Stamped Concrete Companies Provider Name Locked
.
(Deptford, NJ) he promised the world, charged an outrageous price, is unreliable
and didn't deliver the expected results.
Prairie City Stamped Concrete Companies Provider Name Locked
sealed his 2000+ sq. ft.concrete patio and
front walkway in May 2013, after the winter it looked worse than ever. he talked to
Prairie City Stamped Concrete Companies Provider Name Locked

in March 2014, sent him pictures and
Prairie City Stamped Concrete Companies Provider Name Locked
was going to redo the job (if he paid for the sealer)
in May. No show, no call and it is September 2014.

Worst experience I've ever had with a contractor / service provider. By far.
What was supposed to take 2 - 3 weeks, took well over 6 months.
His crew would show up one day, then disappear for 2 weeks. Show up again after repeated phone calls, then disappear. One time I found a razor blade, in the grass next to my kids swing set. I asked the guy working if it was his. He said yes. I asked for him to be careful with things like that. Next week comes along and I find another blade in the grass. I raise the concern a second time. Apparently this was interpreted as me "getting in their way" and me trying to "control where they put there tools"!!! Folks this was a blade from a box knife, lying out in the grass, next to my kids swing set. How in the world would that be a good spot to put your tools down?!!!
The coping covering looks like joke. He charged me extra for it, and it looks terrible. I asked if they could be careful with the holes in the concrete for the pool fence. They seemed to purposely fill those holes with the spray material. I had to drill out each hole in order to put my fence up.
Finally, within a week of finishing the job, a crack appeared in the re-surfacing material, and it started to "flake" off.
I called
Prairie City Stamped Concrete Companies Provider Name Locked
, he came right over, and with a giant hammer banged the loose, flaking material off the floor. Creating a big patch of bare concrete, on an otherwise decently completed floor.
This was last summer (summer of 2013). To date,
Prairie City Stamped Concrete Companies Provider Name Locked
has never returned to fix the giant patch he created.
I would have been better off accepting the crack, with the flaking material, and left well enough alone. But I paid him $4500
for roughly 1800 sq. ft. of floor, much higher than the going rate.
I wish I could post pictures of his shoddy work. It was heart-breaking. The money was from my annual bonus at work, and I felt like we completely wasted it.
I am now going to attempt to fix the patch myself. Wish me luck.
If you are considering
Prairie City Stamped Concrete Companies Provider Name Locked
and his company, please do so with extreme care, and I wouldn't pay a dime upfront. Contact me directly if you want even more details.

This job went VERY well!
Prairie City Stamped Concrete Companies Provider Name Locked
came in at a great price for the job compared to other estimates I got. The original
estimate was for $4100 but when they knocked the old porch out they found there was no footing (was not very
surprised at that because I bought the house new and met with the contractor). Anyway that was an extra $600
to the original estimate which I thought was very reasonable for the extra cement & labor.
Prairie City Stamped Concrete Companies Provider Name Locked
is a professional
and very meticulous when it comes to getting the job done right. I would seek him out again and highly recommend
his services!!

Our neighbors used a large concrete company from
Prairie City Stamped Concrete Companies Provider Name Locked
. We will not name names but when we called, they ignored us for a week then immediately asked us for a deposit to hold a spot for 6 months without even meeting us, giving a total price or design. We were hesitant but agreed because they were supposed to be the best. We were excited but then our neighbors work began. (we were both rescheduled 6 times by the way). They sent a "sub-contractor" who did not even have a patio design. The contractor became frustrated claiming this always happens and walked off the job. There was no communication from this company and a few days later an "in-house" crew, so they claimed, showed up to do the work. The patio took twice as long as they stated and looked awful. Needless to say, we canceled our contract and contacted
Prairie City Stamped Concrete Companies Provider Name Locked
.
We were called right after we sent them an message on their website. They gave us a ballpark price, multiple ideas and plenty of education. We scheduled a meeting for 3 days later and finalized the design and bid. The communication, professionalism and education was second to none. They gave us multiple ideas and advice on what would work best for us and our property.
We signed a contract and 5 weeks later our job was complete. The job looked great and the crew worked extremely fast. The entire company was extremely accommodating and patient. Cannot say enough good things about this company! You could tell from day one that they really care about their customers. The owner was always on site or nearby and in contact with us. Please do not be mislead by false advertising and salesmen. Do you research. We will definitely recommend
Prairie City Stamped Concrete Companies Provider Name Locked
to everyone.

I have to say I originally picked this company because he told me he uses Renew-
Prairie City Stamped Concrete Companies Provider Name Locked
. I had researched the product and found great info on it and was happy with the product.
Prairie City Stamped Concrete Companies Provider Name Locked
the owner of Creative Designs in Concrete, sat down and explained the process and what he was using and gave me a whole book of jobs to look at. Well... that is a well rehearsed act he has. They never prepped my deck the way he said they would. He told me the surface would be about 1/4 inch thick, it is barely 1/16 inch and less in some places. They were messy, I had to have a company come in and vacuum my pool 4 times then I had to get a chemical to clean the water. After all that I had to replace my filter housing from the build up and pressure cracked the top. My friend used the same company and her deck looks terrible and she also had to replace her filter. Maybe a coincidence I can't say. He is very nasty when put on the spot, he claims he is an ex cop here in
Prairie City Stamped Concrete Companies Provider Name Locked
County. Well all of that didn't scare me at all. I told him I did't care who he thought he used to be, his work is terrible and he doesn't care about cheating customers with the crappy work. I asked him if he had any pride in what he did for a living. I did call Renew-
Prairie City Stamped Concrete Companies Provider Name Locked
while he was here because he was lying to me about the product, so I got the owner on the phone and
Prairie City Stamped Concrete Companies Provider Name Locked
admitted to him that he was not using Renew-
Prairie City Stamped Concrete Companies Provider Name Locked
. The owner told me that and the fact
Prairie City Stamped Concrete Companies Provider Name Locked
has not bought product from him in years. He also explained Renew-
Prairie City Stamped Concrete Companies Provider Name Locked
doesn't bubble and pit. The whole process has been exhausting and my deck looks horrible it is cracking and bubbled. I am very upset about the whole situation. My yard was made a mess, my screens, windows, furniture, etc. I would NEVER recommend them to ANYONE! Stay far way from this company. I have to have another company come in and remove this deck and redo the whole thing. This new company stated he has seen a lot of work coming his way from Creative Designs disasters.
