"It was a no show, even tried calling him & left several messages but to no avail. I had a serious leaking foundation that needed immediate repair, he agreed" to meet with me but did not care to show up. don't think this man cares, absolutely has no business courtesy.

-Mary W.

"This company was provided as a sub-contractor by Home Depot. They initially installed the window in August of 2014 but shortly after the installation and inspection" I realized the window had several chips in the glass. I don't know if this occured during the installation or if the window arrived that way from the manufacturer but either way, I blame
for either causing the damage or failing to notice it prior to installation.
reinstalled a new window (for Home Depot) in December. During this installation they fashioned a scaffold under the window using a ladder on one side and a board on the other which they drilled into my fence without my permission. The owner of the company also opened my trash cans and took out an old cardboard chainsaw box that had been in my garage for the past year. He then proceeded to submerge the dirty cardboard in my swimming pool. I immediately confronted him and he told me he did it because the hose wasn't getting the cardboard wet enough. I asked why he needed it to be wet and he basically said they were going to use it as a tool during the installation. On multiple visits to my property for 2 window installations and 1 visit to install window clip covers, they always needed to borrow my tools. My ladder was always used and at one point I lent them a pair of rubber handled cutters which they used to hammer in the window clip covers, damaging the rubber grip and leaving red
and scratches on the covers. I would have given an F rating overall but the window was ultimately installed so I have given them a D.

Mudjacking or concrete leveling may be the answer if your front porch is stooping or your sidewalk is slouching. Consider these tips to level sunken concrete.

Concrete pros say perfectly uniform concrete is not always possible, but excessive discoloration can occur for several reasons. Here are some possible fixes.

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.

Concrete Repair reviews in Claremont


Very well. Crews always showed up on time, Cleaned up very nice after everyday or work. Very professional company would highly recommend him to everyone.
- Jill E.

We are thrilled with the results and very happy with the process. The crew was here when they said, did the job over a few days to allow drying time, and left our yard nice and clean when finished. The

deck we had was unsightly faded orange with chips, patches and had surrounding cement that didn't match at all - now it has a beautiful and contemporary color combination and all areas match, they did a great job on the texture and the improvement to our pool area is incredible. We will not hesitate to recommend this company.

The work consisted of a couple of phases and took a couple of weeks. Cleanup was very good. He was on time, within budget and the end product looked good. Overall, everything went well.
- Warren B.

Everything went great! The job was completed in about three days. It was only delayed a bit due to the constant rain. They did a pretty good job with clean up. For the estimate, he came out and went over everything with me. He was great with communication and and follow up. They were very customer friendly. Overall, they did a great job!
- Jessica O.

The top landing of my concrete and brick stairs cracked and was receding.

was very responsive in providing an estimate. He was upfront with all of the required work, showed up on time and completed the job within two days. I've received a lot of compliments on how nice it looks. Most of all, I feel safe using those stairs again.
- Michael D.

Most of the work was good with the exception of the wainscoting, he said that we gave him the paint and that is what he used. It looks unfinished. If that was not the right paint he should have said so and we could have giving him the correct paint. As it is it looks dull and unfinished. Also the seems do not look good. I asked him to re-paint and he said It would be extra. Did not like his attitude

, owner, came over for our estimate. Very nice man, professional and honest.
He looked at our patio and porch and said he could not help us. The rebar in the cement was bending and causing the patio and porch to crack. Also he could see where ground was settling and we needed to remove the cement before any damage could be done to our foundation on the house.
We really appreciated an honest answer. We definitely recommend

There was a three month gap in purchasing the deal and actually getting the work done with very little contact in between. Once they were finally able to book me, everything went smooth. The two gentlemen that came to do the job were cautious of closing the gates so that the dogs did not get out. The job was complete in two days and the pad looks great.
