"Results were mixed. On the positive side, the cracks were sealed and Midland was the only one of 3 companies that proposed the correct solution to the problem (based on further research" of the problem). The workers were pleasant and worked very hard. On the negative side: the finish on the caulk was not as smooth as we would have liked, the
pointing work left residue on the brick and was not consistent in depth and appearance with the rest of the house. We had asked to be home for the original estimate and for a return visit to "wash" the area. We had agreed that I would give them a check for the work when they returned. Both of these visits were done when we were not home. When we withheld payment waiting for them to come back to resolve concerns (we did not even know that they had come back to do the wash), we were subjected pressure over the phone and in emails to pay including a threat to take us to court if we did not. They did come back and improve upon what they did originally and we did pay them the full amount. I do not think they would have come back if I had not withheld payment. It was not a pleasant experience and I would not use them again.

"From the very start
was above par in all areas. They promptly replied, described the service and procedures in detail after seeing my balcony, kept me informed" of their progress and called if they would be delayed. When they poured it I noticed a few flaws and they immediately came back out , said it was not up to their standards and redid it. I was amazed. They used high quality materials and were very professional throughout the process. If other contractors followed suit we would have a perfect world. Not only awesome work but the same quality and professionalism

"All of my interactions with
were fantastic: They came out to quote the job within hours of my calling them, they reviewed the quote completely and explained" why we had to do the appropriate preparation work to make the floor last a lifetime. The started on time, finished on schedule, they cleaned up - you would never know they were there. In addition they are a trustworthy vendor - I went to work and gave them the access to the house - and they made sure my pets did not get out.

Angie's Answers

?

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.

?

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. 

 

 

?

If the state requires a contractor's license, then he needs to have a license in each state he intends to work in - plus state/local business licenses as applicable.

 

This does not mean there are not a lot of contractors who cross state lines without proper licensing - the penalties in may cases are not real severe and are just a fine, not criminal, so many take the chance.

 

As you say - argh  - many contractors are not really businessmen and have zero legal education, so many people get burned.

I have used them in the past for others small jobs and they were excellent. This was a much bigger job. Removal of the kitchen cabinets, installation of new cabinets, tile floor in the kitchen and new vanities in the bathrooms. They were prompt and professional. They recommended a tear out but I only wanted a remodel so that I could keep the cost lower, in retrospect they were right. A complete tear out would have allowed to to customize the rooms more to my personal preference.
I would use them again in the future and listen to their recommendations more up front.

Exceeded our expectations. Told us they would come in 6 weeks and they showed up in six weeks. Told us the work would take 5 days and it took 5 days. Took no money up front; only took money when job was satisfactorily completed. Even made suggestions to the design that improved the look of the finished product.

His quote was very reasonable among the 5 or so I contacted. As he is the person who gave the quote and who actually worked alone by himself, he took great care about the quality of work. The overall work is very well done. It looks great. I certainly would use him again and recommend him to any one else. He is trustworthy,

I wasn’t pleased. When they lifted my house up, but what they did on the outside, they didn’t fill in the cracks. I’m afraid that water will fill the cracks. My doors aren’t closing properly. I still have high/low places. It’s low towards the front. I had to call them back 2-3 times to level my floors, which they were supposed to do in the beginning. I felt like I had to watch them constantly in order for them to do.
