"Took a couple of calls to get
on the phone. He sounded like a nice guy and he did mentioned that he had two big projects scheduled for the" next 2 months. We scheduled a Saturday morning time to get a quote. Unfortunately, he stood us up with out calling or answering his phone when I called to find out if he would make it. :(

" I was satisfied with the concrete work that
did for me and would have given a high grade on that. However, the patio was poured in the" Fall of 2013 and the seal began to peel over the Winter. In the Spring of 2014, I contacted Norm and he said he would check it out but never did. I called again in the Summer. I called again in the Fall and Norm actually stopped by the house and looked at the patio. To this date I have heard nothing from Norm. The original concrete patio did not peel, only the new concrete so I believe the seal was put on prematurely. In summary, the patio was put in in the late summer/early fall of 2013 and started peeling as soon as the weather got cold. It has looked a mess for all of 2014 and now we are in 2015. I think I have been very patient in trying to get this resolved. Whenever I have spoken with Norm he is polite but is slow to respond.

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.

Concrete - Pouring & Repair

Angie Hicks answers a member question about whether it's normal for cracks to form on a new concrete driveway and how to talk to your masonry contractor if so.

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.

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.

**All 3 jobs were performed at once.
Job #1 Installed Driveway - MOST SEVERE -
The driveway is not level in numerous areas. This has resulted in several major problems inside my house.
Instead of flowing down the driveway into the street, rain water pools around the foundation and eventually seeps into my house. The standing water has caused SEVERE DAMAGE to wood flooring and cabinets inside of my house. I've had to remove flooring in two rooms that are next to the driveway.
Job#2

(he actually has pictures of our FAULTY

on his website)
1) The roof on the
Clinton Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
began leaking immediately after being completed. Since then, I have had to have the roof replaced because the water continued to damage the pillars. I had 2 estimates. Both individuals stated that the roof was put on incorrectly (upside down).
2) The
Clinton Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
was holding water because it was not built at the correct angle. So when it rained, water did not drain down the roof. Instead, it pooled on top of the already faulty roof.
3) Damage to the cedar pillars and structure are evident due to the water damage.
The

will need replacement pillars/cedar planks due to the damage to the water damage.

JOB # 3 Concrete Stamped Patio
1) Several major cracks developed in the concrete within months of installation - significant cracks are visible
2) The "stain" came off within a few months after being installed
3) The stamped patio is not level-causing water to sit on the porch after it rains
Mr.
Clinton Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
was made aware of all these problems early on (months after installation) and continues put me off.
My ex husband has noted all the times, "he will come by", and he has not. Since then, and after two years of frustration I began calling Mr.
Clinton Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
to work on a solution. Mr.
Clinton Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
does not answer calls and his replies to my emails/texts are: “I will go by later”. "Later" has yet to happen.
I am slowly repairing the damage his faulty work has caused and will seek legal counsel.
Do not make the same mistake we made.

We were originally quoted a lower price, but it was raised because the owner realized it was a holiday (President's Day), and he said he was going to have to pay his worker more. Not sure I believe it, but I couldn't wait any longer. The fellow showed up more or less on time. We had borrow water from the building next door for the saw, which is water-cooled and lubricated, and the water in the hose froze while we were trying to get it working. Eventually we got the water working, and the
Clinton Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
began. He made quick work of it, but it made a mess! He didn't try to cover the walls to prevent the mess from getting on our walls, which I thought would have been a good idea. The wall ended up needing new paint. And near the end of his cut he hit a water pipe, so we had to turn off the water frantically and have a plumber repair that. Overall, quite an adventure, but they did what they said they would do, just not quite as cleanly and smoothly as I was hoping.

We were pleased with the attention given and the end result of this painting job. The workers were conscientious and detailed in the prep work, and did a fine job of painting. The job took four days and each day a foreman would stop by and call to make sure the project was going well. We did have a couple problems but these were quickly corrected. They tried to get a second coat on the same day as the first, but it started raining before they could finish. Even with covering up the work and tarping the ground there was paint runoff from the storm.

returned on the next dry day, gave it another coat and cleaned up the ground cement. We also had a problem with the front light going out on the day of power washing, and though it turned out to be a broken wire
