Concrete repair: How to avoid common scams

If you have a concrete driveway or patio, repair is inevitable. Understanding the quote and repair process can help save money on a needed concrete repair.

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.

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.

Everything went really well. They were punctual, reliable, and did a beautiful job in all respects. In fact, they did such a remarkable job that they're coming back to do some additional work in the near future.

We had a mechanical room with the furnace and water heaters that had a partial slab. The rest of the space was dirt and completely useless to us. We decided to have the slab finished out so we could use the room as a shop or storage. We called
Greensburg Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
and he came out the next day and gave us a very reasonable estimate. We contracted with him to do the work. He brought in 2 loads of fill and leveled out the dirt floor. The access to the space was on the end of the house farthest from the driveway. We were concerned that the lawn would be damaged by all the wheelbarrow traffic up and down the hill (there had been considerable rain). But

did his best to minimize the impact to the lawn by hugging the perimeter. We were very pleased with that and appreciated the respect he gave our yard. The fill was done in on Friday and

Price is high-end normal but work is exquisite. We threw him a curve by changing site on about 24 hrs notice. He made it work, though, despite having to add on tree removal, stump-grinding, and extra excavation. Suggest if you have time, get professional excavators and tree removers do that part. Can't beat the care and outcome of his concrete work though.

After calling for an appointment to receive an estimate, the owner Mr.
Greensburg Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
arrived on schedule and discussed how he would accomplish the job. His estimate was very reasonable and he answered all my questions. After receiving several other estimates and considering the options, I chose his company because I was impressed the owner himself took the pains to visit the job site and provide an estimate. The other companies I called were not so prompt and several had to reschedule times for the estimates. They were not nearly as willing to answer questions or consider alternatives.
My home is in the historic preservation district of the city of Atlanta and it took me a little over 2 months to get the necessary permits to allow the project to commence. During this process his office referred me to a surveyor who prepared a site plan for the job as the city requested. I appreciated this courtesy and his fee for his services was quite reasonable. Mr.
Greensburg Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
's office manager was a big help in the process.
After finally getting the city's approval, Mr.
Greensburg Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
's team arrived within a week and started the project. The driveway was broken up on day one, the concrete was poured on the second day and the work was basically finished in that time. The foreman stayed on the job after the others had left to be sure the concrete had set long enough to assure nothing disturbed the finish. The team which came on both days was prompt, professional and experienced.
After allowing the concrete to set for several days, the team returned to clean up the site and remove the forms. They also worked to blend the concrete driveway into the landscape. The finished product looks great and I am very happy with the work.

came out to examine my crawlspace floor and walls regarding a moisture issue I had. He recommended sealing the approximately 350 linear feet with injecting epoxy and silica sand into the cracks, as well as sealing along the perimeter wall and foundation supports. He started out with a light epoxy, but when he came back the next day, the cracks had absorbed that and were exposed. He switched to a heavier epoxy which worked better, retreated the original area and proceeded to finish the rest of the space.The crawlspace has a three foot clearance, it took about three days. He came back the following week, and sealed any areas that needed to be touched up.
