"Awesome!! I found them in Angies List.
came out after a bit of time and gave the estimate. I called to have the work done. The communication" was excellent. The guys showed up a little early, which was nice because I still had to work that day.
and his helper were very friendly and courteous. They gave me some recommendations as well , to help keep water away from my house. They completed the work and actually asked me how I liked it! Very professional, like there name they were "A1". Definitely would call the guys and I highly recommend them.

-David B.

"I have given them an F overall not because their work was bad, but because they are unethical and refuse to refund my good faith overpayment of $699. I was happy" with the work overall, even though the crew did not show uip as promised every time. Throughout the project relations were fine, and we seemed to communicate well. I signed his project proposal and paid $2000 of the $4400 project when the old driveway was torn up, and the other $2000 when it was finished. That's when I realized that Den the owner had not deducted the $699 Big Deal amount I paid to Angie's List up front. At first he refused to pay it, then later said he would, and actually told me a check was on the way from his accountant. The money has not arrived and he does not respond to my requests for payment. So now I am testing Angie's List and the contractor's refund policies. Let's see if the refund policies are more than nice words. By rights I should be paid at least the money that I overpaid. My advice is to anyone considering using these guys: BEWARE. You may be cheated.

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.




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.

for a future proyect, very profesional .
- Carmen R.

Went beyond the original quote. I was not at home. When I arrived, he was done and it looked great. It has been over a year and the segments have settled less than 1/4 of an inch. They started about 3-4 inches below where they should have been. He sealed all the segments and replaced the drilled out portions so it is almost impossible to tell the difference from the original driveway segments. He was on time, courteous and seemed interested in doing a quality job.
- James A.

We had problems with him. The house is sitting crooked. The foundation is square but the house was never levered. The two beams that should be under the house are still at the old location. The house is twisted and it is not settting correctly on the piers. We called him and he said he was going to correct it and later he said he would not. He said it is not his fault because the form work through a carpentry company was not correct. He never let us know this before he set the house down though. From our observation, if he just turned the house, it would sit correctly on the piers. I even had an architect to look at the house and he also told me it seems the piers are not right but the house is not right as well. So both are at fault.The architecht advised if he would pick up the house and reposition it, the problem would be remedied.

is now not returning our calls. We need to get this resolved.

They were the high of my three bids. I believe they are the only company in town that
Mentor Concrete Levelers Provider Name Locked
as well as raises. Not sure.
The called as promised. The crew showed up and did their work. Other reveiwers said they really respected their landscaping. I can't say the same. Sidewalk is level. For now. Not sure if the water pooling problem has been solved. Time will tell; i will update. I think the crew was a bit grumpy because it was a hot, humid day. They did a decent job but I can't say they were great like some other reviewers.

were awesome to work with. They were quick to respond and come out to give me an estimate. I got on their schedule the same day as they were booked for several weeks. They were great to communicate and let me know when they could come and do the work. They arrived on schedule and were quick to set up and get started. Watching the process was really amazing and I learned a lot from talking to them during the job. They've been doing this a long time and their confidence put me at ease. I was 100% satisfied with the work they did and my wife and I both really enjoyed talking with them and getting to know them. They are wonderful folks. I've already called about another job and I have recommended them to several friends.

My previous contact with
Mentor Concrete Levelers Provider Name Locked
was with the previous owner several years ago. When I needed work done again, I went back to
Mentor Concrete Levelers Provider Name Locked
, only to discover that the previous owner had died, and that
Mentor Concrete Levelers Provider Name Locked
was now the new owner. I was initially concerned regarding the quality of the work under new ownership. I am now completely satisfied with the fact that Mr.
Mentor Concrete Levelers Provider Name Locked
has not only continued with the same level of quality, but has gone beyond it. Evidence of this was the fact that, when it was discovered that the sliding glass door above the concrete steps which had been lifted was not out of alignment, he arranged to have a door specialist come and reset the door at this own cost. This was evidence of his integrity and concern for the quality of the work that he and his team provides.

did not properly assess the preparation needed to lift my front porch. On 7/28/15 one of the owners of

Mentor Concrete Levelers Provider Name Locked
and his crew arrived at my house to mud
Mentor Concrete Levelers Provider Name Locked
my front porch. They drilled two holes to inject the concrete. When injecting the concrete in the second hole the concrete porch split across the entire width. I asked the owner,
Mentor Concrete Levelers Provider Name Locked
, what he is going to do about the damage to my porch. My porch had a smooth surface without any cracks before they started. The split is right where they drilled one of the holes.
Mentor Concrete Levelers Provider Name Locked
said he didn't know what he was going to do. He went and sat in his truck in front of my house. I waited to see if he was going to come back and discuss this further with me, but after about 10 minutes he just left. Couldn't believe it. I went back in the house and called their office. The receptionist said she would talk to the owners and someone will get back with me. Their sales rep. called later and said he come by the next day on 7/29/15. When the sale rep. came to my house to assess the damage, he said it looks like the front

of my porch held the concrete slab in place when they started to lift the porch. He said
Mentor Concrete Levelers Provider Name Locked
should have cut that

to free up the porch. He wanted to fill the split & complete the injection process. I told him they devalued my property and the porch needs to be replaced. I asked him for their insurance information and he said I wouldn't need it and that

will not replace my porch because they aren't responsible for cracks. I said this isn't a crack, this is structural damage. My porch is split in half. I have before and after photos showing where the concrete is unlevel at the split. The other owner

did not call me until Aug. 26th and he told me they still will not replace my front porch.
