"I was having a terrible time finding a concrete contractor that would do a small job. When Moody, who was found on Craigslist, said he could" do the job, I hired him. Very bad decision on my part. The strip of concrete in front of garage door was poured approximately 2" too high. So the garage door cannot be closed completely. He left a pole in the concrete as it dried and now is permanently embedded in the concrete. There is no expansion cut in the 17 foot strip of concrete. When he was asked about these issues he ignore me and walked away. He was extremely rude during the entire project. He never had any reason to be in the house and yet he was found mixing his concrete in the living room!!!!!!!! The stoop that was put in at the front door is uneven and when the forms were removed there were a lot of holes. He came back 10 days later and patched.....with a different colored concrete. The final look is very messy...like I did it myself. The most disturbing part is when reconciling my checking account, I found that the check that was written to Moody had been altered the to remove his name and was changed to Scape . Unfortunately, to repair the bad work, I had to hire another contractor who corrected the problems for $650.00.

" was very friendly and responsive. He came out with color sample tiles for us to see and get a good idea of what we liked. He listened to" us and made sure it was exactly as we wanted it. The crew worked very hard and gave a lot of time and attention to detail. It looks really nice.

a stamped concrete patio

Stamped Concrete Adds Affordable Appeal to Outdoor Patios

Many homeowners are opting for stamped concrete patios that mimic the look of stone, brick or tile. Perfect for any outdoor area, such as surrounding a pool, stamped concrete offers the ability to get creative with patterns and colors.

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.

First, let me begin by saying is fantastic! I am currently undergoing a nightmare of home repairs thanks to termites. When my hardwood floors were removed to treat the termites many cracks appeared. All of the repairmen who saw it and a structural engineer that I spoke with on the phone believed they were the normal cracks ...More that come from the foundation settling. While the flooring company planned to seal the cracks, I wanted an expert to look at them to make sure that was all that was needed. I definitely didn't want to put down new expensive hardwood floors, only to have to pull them up again someday. I couldn't find a "concrete specialist" on Angies List when I typed in concrete repair so I googled it and found on another website. Another "concrete expert" returned my call first so when called I told him I had already made an appointment with the other man. was very nice about it and wished me well. Well, then the other man didn't show the next morning, so I humbly called and asked if he would consider coming to inspect the slab. Not only was he very gracious, he agreed to come within the next two hours and was right on time. He reassured me that the cracks were indeed the typical cracks resulting from the home settling and agreed with the other repairmen that it had done all the settling it was going to do. There was no charge for the service which really surprised me. However, I did ask if he would write a letter stating he had inspected the floor and that it was normal cracking (my terminology) so I could keep it in my file in case I ever want to sell the house. That was the $50 charge which I felt was more than reasonable. I encouraged him to add to the bill for his time and travel, but he refused to do so. Mr. is the epitome of the kind of repairman I want working on my home. I'm glad I don't have major structural issues, but I believe in asking an expert, not relying on the word of people who think they know the answer. Mr. gave a detailed "lesson" to me on what to look for when you have serious foundation problems. All in all, I don't think you go ever go wrong hiring Mr. .

and his team installed a 16x22 stamped concrete patio with a 14' diameter fire stone fire pit with sitting wall. provided a written bid with drawings and material samples and let us choose from dozens of concrete patterns textures and colors. CI leveled the ground, extended drain lines from the ...More house. Installed rebar and rebar dowels to the existing foundation. They filled with compressed base material. On the second day they poured and stamped the concrete. The came back the next day to build the fire pit and sitting wall. On the final day they pressure washed and stained the patio. They were clean, organized, and professional. They made every effort to protect the sod and the irrigation system.

I had him resurface at my mom's home 1st ( City). The porches came out really well. The front walk seems a little washed out (color wise) and one area that now appears to need a touch up (just reached out - kind of uneven).
The porches at my home look nice as well.
We resurfaced the garage which was pricey and ...More seems a little thin (epoxy), maybe another coat would help.

I contacted him about work on my pool deck, resealing, etc.. He said he couldn't give me an estimate until the following week. When I talked with him early the following week he said he would be working near Kissimmee on Friday and could do the estimate then. I promised him someone would be hear throughout the day. We were here but he never showed ...More and what ticked me off he didn't call to say he wasn't coming. I called at the end of the work day Fri and got the answering machine. I left a message to let him know I was upset he didn't even call to let me know he wasn't coming. I thought he might call to apologize because he knew from the phone message I wasn't happy. but it is now past 3 PM Monday and I have heard nothing. Maybe he has bitten off more than he can handle or mayhe he is just not a responsible businessman.

responded to call and quote request quickly. He met me at the job site to discuss particulars. He provided a few options and provided expertise. He was friendly and professional. He completed the job as schedule on time. He also contracted out having the railings to be refinished and reinstalled. Done well and on time also. ...More Would recommend this company to anyone. They were not the cheapest quote, but expected them to be the best price for the quality to be done. Thank you.

and Arrowhead did an excellent job. The front porch of our condo had two trip hazards and the overall look was tired and ugly with concrete and tiles. completely redid the surface, eliminated the trip hazards, created a beautiful, smooth surface, and finished it all with wonderful color and texture and ...More a superb quality finish. It is beautiful and gives a whole new look as one approaches the condo. Wow, what a difference and now much safer. I highly recommend and Arrowhead. If I have any other resurfacing I definitely would use again. Great work and craftsmanship!
