During the first day of work their crew removed the old walk, step, excavated the area, installed the forms for the pour and cleaned up.

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.

I called
Fletcher Concrete Contractors Provider Name Locked
originally around August 14, requesting that someone look at my existing patio and quote a new stamped concrete patio. I was told that the minimum cost is $2,500.00 and was I still interested. I said yes and we set up an appointment for August 18 at 3:30. The gentlemen arrived at 3:30, my wife and I showed him the area, and stated that we wanted it replaced and were open to any suggestions as it was not particularly large. We were told that he would give us a quote via email soon- I confirmed my email address with him. On August 26, I called
Fletcher Concrete Contractors Provider Name Locked
to say that I had not yet received the quote. The receptionist said she did not know why, would look into it, and that we should have something soon. It is now September 3, and we still have not received a quote and don't expect to. If a contractor is not interested in doing the work, fine, but we should be told that so we can start pursuing other options as soon as possible.

Like most projects of this type problems come up and how they get resolved is a critical part of the overall experience.

told us that he is most interested in ensuring that we were happy with the outcome, not an idle promise - this outfit is the best I've ever worked with when it comes to giving the customer what they want, a couple examples below.
1) We were not at all happy with the sliding doors (poor quality).
Fletcher Concrete Contractors Provider Name Locked
removed one of two that was installed and replaced them ones of much better quality.
2) Inside walls were to be finished with a vinyl wallboard. We were not at all happy with the result (seams and gaps visible). Subsequent attempts to correct the problem failed to make the result acceptable so

removed the material and replaced it with drywall. He did not charge us for the extra work or material.
Fletcher Concrete Contractors Provider Name Locked
team is also very good at creative solutions to tricky problems that gave other contractors who estimated the job problems. Attention to detail is another attribute worth mentioning as well as good communication concerning project status as it went along (frequent txt messages).
I will certainly give

a call for any future projects.

No complaints at all

Had a break in the weather so he could fit our job in. We were selling our house. It made house look wonderful.
He was fast and kept an eye on the job. Covered it with blankets before it snowed, kept us in the loop.
The best price for what we had done. Made our Realtor very happy with the improved

appeal.
He has added him to his list of people to call.
If you need concrete work done this is the company to pick.

We had recently moved into a previously owned house whereupon the previous owner left behind a grass carpet in the dining room, we thought this very gererous til we lifted it and found that the backing of the carpet had stuck to the wood floors and looked a mess. We tried to get it up with no sucess and began to call floor people..all who came out said that it would have to be sanded and because there were no thresholds to any other rooms it would require doing the whole downstairs.....A friend recommended

Flooring and we called him and he and his associate came out and working on their hands and knees removed all of the offending "glue" and made the floor match the rest of the house.

Week of 4/13/2015

Last winter was exceptionally harsh for our area. We had a concrete block basement wall start to bow inward due to water freezing under a large patio.
Fletcher Concrete Contractors Provider Name Locked
& his
Fletcher Concrete Contractors Provider Name Locked
team worked in concert with a licensed structural engineer to place a set of steel I beams against the wall to stabilize and ultimately completely straighten the wall. The engineering design required the I beams to be on footers under our basement slab. While the basement slab was excavated we also had a drainage system installed. The job went very well & smoothly.
Fletcher Concrete Contractors Provider Name Locked
's team took care to erect plastic dust barriers so the basement did not get dirty from the concrete work. The wall stabilizers used by
Fletcher Concrete Contractors Provider Name Locked
were of superior quality compared to those used other contractors. See Richtech Industries (http://www.richtechindustries.com). This was a very involved job that went very well. We should note that

stopped by 9/2/2015 to tighten the I beams and all appear completely straight.
