" From the first phone call to the last email
and
were the the nicest and most professional contractors I have delt" with. They were punctual with appointments and call backs. They even offered to come out on the
4th weekend if it was more convenient for us. Throughout the whole process they had great ideas and listened to whatever we had to say. Their crew was also wonderful, all very freindly and courteous. And then there is the work itself, absolutely perfect! We had alot of concrete poured and there is not a flaw to be found.
even pointed out a few things that he did not like that I didn't see and made sure they were fixed perfectly. We had a few estimates that were less but I sure didn't mind paying a little more for the quality, service and enthusiasm that we received. I would recommend
to anyone in a second. The service and quality we received for the money was worth every penny.

, owner and main operator contacted me right after I indicated I was interested in his company through Angie's. He came for an interview" on time, dressed appropriately, and exhibiting good manners and even better business practices of courtesy, punctuality and knowledge of the job at hand. Estimate was just and reasonable for the superb quality of the product delivered. Eagle has a crew of people who work hard and in coordination with one another. The subcontractors Eagle uses are licensed, insured, delivered quality and work fast. My driveway looks like a million dollars. I am very pleased with this company and would call them again with no hesitation.

Stamped Concrete Adds Affordable Appeal to Outdoor Patios

More homeowners opt for stamped concrete that mimics stone, brick or tile for patios and pool decks, or resurface old concrete for a new look at a lower cost.

On this episode of Chat with the Experts, we talk with Tony "The Concrete Man" Johnson about the benefits of a concrete driveway and how to install a patio.

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.

Hendersonville Stamped Concrete Contractors Provider Name Locked
comes personally to every job, and on that first day he and his crew removed the furniture from the porch, (including my wicker swing) and tore out the front steps and the slates on the porch. There is a small porch (5x8) level with the front entrance, and four steps going down to the larger patio/porch( 11x30). He leveled the area after removing the slates, laid out and framed the sidewalks, and then left a man here to frame the new steps. The evening prior to the scheduled pouring of the cement, I noticed the frame for the new steps was larger (and nicer) than those they tore out. They would've been much nicer than the originals, but, unfortunately, it looked like my swing would bump into them every time it moved! The swing was not there, and the framer didn't consider it when he was working. The swing can't be moved the other way due to a large chimney on the other side, and I certainly l wasn't about to give up that swing! I texted

(it was fairly late in the evening) and he called me immediately. He cancelled the pour, came out first thing in the morning, and had a worker stay and reframe the steps.....no problem at all. He apologized for the mistake and took care of it right a way.
This was a bigger job than it may sound. My small porch was resurfaved and finished to match the new steps. My large porch/patio was totally redone and the finish makes it look alot like stone! The sidewalk parallels the driveway and I may occassionally want to park on the patio in winter, so it's all 5-6" thick, so as to be drivable! He then added a cement apron to the

Ok....had to come back several times and redo cracks, surfacing and sealing. Original seal was water based and came off. Redid with acrylic seal. Some paint and seal spots missed first time. Very responsive to getting right.

Arrowhead is great to work with and they do wonderful work.
Hendersonville Stamped Concrete Contractors Provider Name Locked
, the owner responded promptly to my inquiry and priced the job fairly. They were a little on the high end of the scale, but worth it! The crew showed up exactly when promised, kept me apprised of how the job was progressing each step of the way, and they were very respectful of my property. They were very patient as we worked together to mix the stain colors to my satisfaction. Although the nature of the job it is a messy process, they did their best to keep things as neat as possible and their clean up after the job was phenomenal. The best I have ever experienced with any contractor. I would highly recommend them wholeheartedly to anyone.

It looked great for the first couple of months, before the texture started separating from the base in numerous places. It took several months of calls and emails, to get them back out here to repair the separations. All they did was slap some stain on top of the base coat, leaving the project looking far less than satisfactory. The layers continue to separate and expose the base.

did a fantastic job designing and installing our stamped concrete patio and sitting wall. The crew was professional and they made every effort to minimize the impact to the rest of my front yard. My wife and I were extremely happy with the service and quality of the patio. Highly recommend them for any concrete work you may have. There price was very reasonable and the quality can't be beat.

My neighbor hired

to pour a stamped concrete patio + sidewalk and I went over and talked to

(the owner) about doing my driveway extension since he and his crew was already next door. He came over, measured and gave me a great price (because his crew was already on-site) and because his company offers very competitive pricing in general. After I accepted the estimate his crew went to work - FAST and HARD working crew. They did the prep work on 3/28/2015 and the pour on Monday 3/30/2015. My existing driveway was exposed aggregate, and the new driveway extension
