"Their work impressed all the subs that followed. In the words of our framing lead, "no one has concrete this nice." They've been a pleasure to work" with, have delivered everything in their bid on time, on budget, and they'll be the first ones we recommend when our friends/neighbors have work that involves concrete or steel.

"We had a sewer pipe break under our driveway and believed that the fact that the concrete had sunk five inches had been the cause. Compounding matters was the fact" that my wife had just had surgery and was non-weight bearing on her legs, so being without plumbing was not good. We contacted
to demolish and pour the bottom of our driveway. His crew demoed the concrete and hauled it away and he sent a crew out to attempt to dig the pipe out. After several hours they hadn't found it and so he suggested to call the plumber back out to locate it as not to waste money digging blindly. That was done, and after several more days the city came out and repaired the pipe and filled the dirt back in.
' crew came out and laid the concrete and did a fantastic job. He was fantastic with his flexibility taking the scheduling of other contractors and weather into account while still getting the job done quickly, on budget and with superior quality. He was in constant communication with me to make sure that he got out here as soon as the other people took care of their end. His crew cleaned up after the job was done and didn't leave materials lying about which is a rarity with people I've had work at my house and is greatly appreciated. This was a nightmare because of the circumstances, but it could have been exponentially worse had it not been for
. Overall I would recommend them to anyone needing concrete work done. My wife and I are extremely pleased.

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 rate the work very good. I thought the price was reasonable. And, yes, I would hire him again. The only issues I had were knowing what day and what time the worker would show up. Wasn't always when I was told. My impression is that the person who does this work stays very busy and may have challenges juggling his schedule.

communicated very well throughout the process and was very clear with us what he would and would not do (he focuses on concrete). He guiding us through color selection and was great telling us what would last (it turns out that some colors are applied, not mixed into the concrete) and was patient as we decided on colors. He was also helpful making sure that we coordinated with other workers (such as the masons doing brick work).
We originally hoped to get the concrete work done in November but the weather didn't cooperate. When the weather was right in March,

brought a large crew of workers, all of whom were courteous and professional, and got the job done very quickly (less than 2 days).

and his team worked diligently and got the project completed in three days. I was impressed with how responsible they were about cleaning up, protecting the neighbor's lawn by covering it with plastic when they power washed the new driveway and placing a "catch cloth" in the street drain to prevent rocks and other debris from going into the local sewer system. They removed the cloth and debris before leaving the work site. They were very professional throughout the entire process. They even installed a drain system in the new walkway to prevent water damage to the house or fence. Pricing was very reasonable.

he owner came to our house and gave us an oral estimate for repointing our brick chimney and brick steps. We should have asked for a written estimate, because we weren't on the same page regarding what was covered for repointing our front steps. We thought repointing meant replacing all of the mortar/point in the steps, but only a small part of the point was replaced. The original service took place in October. We called to address the problems with the steps and asked them complete the work. We had to wait over a month for them to come back. When they finally did come back, it was too late in the season for the point to cure correctly on our brick steps and now the point has cracked over the winter. Both of the service people who completed the work in October and November were professional and arrived promptly, but even the person who came the second time commented on the many places where the point was still cracked and that the job done by his colleague was incomplete. We gave a grade of C on responsiveness because although phone calls were answered promptly, we had to go to the bottom of the waiting list to have the job completed correctly.
