"They even helped with suggestions They showed up on time and worked every day until the job was complete. Easy people to work with and very accommodating to making" changes. They even helped with suggestions on how to design the project. I would use them again if I need more cement work. I have received many complements on how nice the drive and stamped concrete look.

"This is a follow-up to my initial review posted on 6/16/14. DO NOT LET THIS COMPANY INSTALL YOUR CONCRETE.
does not back his work, so find" someone who does!! De
Concrete installed my new driveway at a cost of $7,414 and the surface began deteriorating within just a few months. He will claim that it is from winter and salt but rest assured there is no way a single winter can cause the surface deterioration that I have experienced across this expensive driveway. He did come out (after months of tracking him down) and patched the major areas but the driveway keeps deteriorating each month so it must be replaced. Apparently his "contract" will release him of any liability or responsiblity, since I just took him to court and he won (After 2 years of trying to get resolution he has himself covered with his Terms & Conditions so BEWARE OF THIS CONTRACTOR). WORST JOB EVER, AND NO SUPPORT FOR SHODDY WORK!!! STAY AWAY OR YOU WILL BE SORRY TOO!!

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.

Everything went fine initially--the job was done professionally and was the high-quality work that I had been expecting. The concrete was laid well, graded nicely; cuts were good & well placed, garage work was excellent and just what I was hoping. I even paid him about 7% extra. One fine point about the garage saw cut, however. I was glad to be advised to move my car out of the garage because of concrete dust. I never expected a fine

of this dust to get on hundreds of tools, small items & the usual garage clutter. It would have been very helpful to have C. Brown spend 10-15 minutes putting a dust sheet /
New Albany Concrete Contractors Provider Name Locked
to save me hours & hours of rinsing, dusting and generally cleaning off the concrete dust from everything in the garage, It's very fine & gets into all cracks and crevices even 20 feet from the saw cut. The major problem with my experience was that about 2 weeks after the job was finished and paid in full for, I noticed that several cubic feet of extra/waste concrete had been dumped in my backyard flower bed. By the time I discovered it, there had been a couple of rains and a grayish-white wash from the cement had run onto the grass area extending 5-6 ft. from the dumped cement. I called the co. twice--about 8/12 or 13 and was told they'd get it taken care of by the weekend of 8/22-23. The second call was made 8/26 and was met by a loud criticism of him accusing me of "threatening him" by mentioning that I had yet to make my Angie's List report. In addition, I reminded him of the $150 extra that I had paid him. Again, he used the term "threatening" and said he would get to it. I waited 4 full days for a response-- no call, no removal of cement debris, no time frame of when the job would be finished. Finally, I decided to remove the 80-100 pounds of debris with a pick ax, wheelbarrow, & shovel-about an hour's worth of hard labor. I also had to hoe-scrape the grass/dirt area where the cement wash had rained out. I don't mind doing this type of work once in a while but absolutely NOT when it is part of the job I contracted with C. Brown to complete in good faith. And especially when I paid him substantially extra for the actual concrete work. It felt like since he had received payment, he no longer had any interest whatsoever in me as a customer except to attack with the word "threatening". Of course, I inspected the concrete job when it was done, but would never have guessed I needed to check around my property for dumped cement.

(the owner) called and provided an estimate same day. His team arrived the following day for demolition and framing. Two days later, the entire project was complete. We were impressed with the prompt service and completely satisfied (so far) with the quality of the workmanship.

There were many delays, many due to weather.
When they were here they did an excellent job. It was clear that they were working multiple jobs, and we rarely had the team more than 3 days a week until they were finished.

The work went great.
New Albany Concrete Contractors Provider Name Locked
was very quick to come out and conduct a site inspection, create an estimate and provide it. When we wanted updates to the proposal, they were again very quick to come out, update it and deliver it. When we wanted to start work, we paid a deposit and they were very prompt, scheduling within a week or so, did great work on schedule and had no issue.
They weren't professional about collecting payment, but I would use them again.
They gave us a bill and then they started contacting us repeatedly for payment- not waiting 15 days or 30 days for us to pay. They contacted us repeatedly for the balance payment. We asked if he wanted paypal or quickpay since he was in a rush, but he said no. We put the check in the mail, and he continued to call us multiple times per week. I asked him to stop bothering us until the following Friday, and if the check was lost in the mail, we would reissue. He left me a voicemail on Friday that the check wasn't received. I called him on Tuesday to arrange a new check- he explained he got the check the day before, and his brother may have mixed up the mail and thats why he may not have received it.
I would use them again, but I would hand them a check upon completion, since they are antsy for payment.

We were having water leaking into the crawlspace under the old wooded deck.

poured a footing along the wall and perimeter and put in a slight pitch to help solve the problem. The patio is beautiful! The sidewalk came out better than we could ever expect.

was concerned about the elevation of the sidewalk leading away from our 4 season room and added an extra step. So glad he did as my mother is elderly and this will help. How he tied in the sidewalk to the shed which faired out to a nice little area to put our garbage cans exceeded our expectations.

is an in demand company based on the their top reviews with Angie's List so schedule out in advance. We signed up late last year and got on the waiting list. We actually pushed the job out since we were replacing our 4 season room or could of had the job completed in May. We got back in his schedule but with all the rain this year and the fact that they didn't want to wreck our yard with the heavy equipment, we got it done in August. It was certainly worth the wait to go with such a professional courteous company. Very friendly and they will help you with ideas to keep costs down. Our yard looks totally different now and we couldn't be happier. Great experience from start to finish!

is a very personable man who does things right. He was very prompt in returning my call requesting a bid, arrived on time for the meeting, and arrived to do the work right when he said he would. He and his helper did an excellent job, kept the area clean, and at a reasonable price. If I ever need concrete work again in the future, I would not hesitate to call him again. Thanks
