I called
Calera Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
for an estimate in late April. He came out and gave me an estimate of $2500. After getting it I told him I was using Angie's list and am requesting his advertised 10% discount on any work. He said the $2500 estimate already included the Angie List discount. I should have backed off then, but didn't do so since his estimate was in the middle between two others I had obtained.
Due to rain on and off, the work was not done when we had hoped (May15) , but the weather in late spring was the problem. All parties wanted to do the work in good, prime conditions. The weather was great and he and a crew did the work on the morning of May 21, 2014.
I watched most of the work. The crew,

by
Calera Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
, did the work and certainly looked experienced and knew what they were doing. At this point I had no complaints. When the job was done that day, he was paid in full. That was noon, on May 21. He had pounded in wooden stakes and 'nailed' boards to 'contain' the new concrete while it settled. In a day or so, someone from his business came back and removed the stakes and boards. OK, that was fine; unfortunately I had to pick up over a dozen large nails that were in the grass on either side of the driveway. As instructed, I kept all vehicles off the driveway for a set period of time (he said 10 days), but I kept them off 2 weeks for good measure. During that time I checked for additional nails each day, finding only a couple more. The 'nail' issue was annoying, but not overly upsetting.
It was around June 13 that I noticed a crack down the middle of the flat section of new concrete. While only 1/16" at its widest, it ran for several feet down the middle of the new section. I called
Calera Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
. Answering machine. "Please call me back" was my message. After a few days of phone tag, I got through and talked to
Calera Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
directly. He said someone would come out and look at it; I would not have to be home during this time. After inspecting it, he would call me back in a few days; I recall it was a Thursday and he said he would get back to me by the following Tuesday.
Nothing. I waited extra days. I started calling--both his cell phone and his business number. All I got was voice mail and the recording to leave a message. After a dozen or so calls, I hit and got
Calera Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
'live' upon a call. He stated his worker had forgotten to come down and he would take care of it right away. At least 2 more weeks of calls and messages left, regardless of time I called. And I emphasize my messages were polite, understanding, looking for closure prior to my final call.
I called so many times I knew his phone numbers by heart. One day an employee there answered the phone. He sounded a bit nervous when listening to my plight. He suggested I call when the shop opens (7:30 or 8 am as I recall), since
Calera Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
is usually there. I called early the next day; again I got a machine. That was it! I stated in no uncertain terms that I was extremely disappointed with his handling of the crack and not getting back to me. I would be contacting Angie's List with a negative review, as well as the Milwaukee Better Business Bureau. And I would spread the word via my Internet contacts about this experience.
MINUTES LATER, my phone rings and it is
Calera Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
De Angelis. I have no proof but I am convinced he has caller ID and was screening my calls for the past weeks, hoping I would go away. Here is what
Calera Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
told me. This is my last dealing with this man. I have not called him again and do not plan to do so again.
Calera Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
: "Say
Calera Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
this type of crack happens frequently in our line of work. Settling and ground movements. Here's what you need to do. There is a special caulk called Sikaflex, a self-leveling fix-it -once crack elastic sealant. Cut off an 1/8" spout and fill the crack. Do not level off, as the caulk will level itself. This should take care of it. It's available at Home Depot." That was it!! The sealant costs $12. I have not yet fixed the crack. What I had expected was
Calera Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
or his crew would do so.
But buyer beware in
Calera Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
Contracts. When
Calera Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
filled out his estimate, he listed job specifications. He stated NOTHING about a 'common crack'. In fact, his contract has a section which states: "Any alteration or deviation from above specs involving extra costs will be executed ony upon written order, and will become an extra charge over and above the estimate. "
In conclusion, I would not recommend this man or his company. I feel taken. But I have learned a lesson regarding contracts--put in added details regarding problems after the job completion or do not hire that firm. At first I was not going to file a written complaint. At first, I thought I would just take the hit myself. Then a neighbor came over and wanted the name of the contractor I used. Then it hit me that others may have the same negative experience as I did if I don't speak up.
All I wanted was for my call to be returned promptly and a solution provided by his firm. If his solution was to buy a tube of caulk and fix it myself, why did he avoid my calls for a solution?

Work looked very good once it was finished however during the winter the concrete began to show stones leave sizeable
Calera Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
in the new concrete also the seams began to break up at the joints. Salt was not used over the winter since the driveway is flat. Other contractors have advised that the contractor concrete may have been faulty and in addition when installed that the fresh concrete was not properly raked thru therefore the stones aggregate did not reach the bottom but stayed on the surface . Other contractors also advised that a surface coating at this point will not resolve the issue... The seams between the expansion joints were not properly installed. I have tried repeatedly to reach

Calera Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
is wonderful. He found a great solution that was within our budget and executed the work perfectly. We liked him and his work so much that we're going to hire him to build us a block garage! He's honest, reliable and hard working.
We now have a beautiful colored concrete patio outside of our screen porch that is stable and strong and we can do anything we want with it in the future--it's strong enough for a room or just to use as a patio.

The owner came to do an estimate. I thought it was an approximation and expected the cost may be slightly higher. The crew came as promised a week or so later. The local inspector came, asked who was doing the work, and when he found out, he told us these guys know exactly what they are doing and gave the job his OK.
And indeed they did. They finished the work, cleaned the mud up off the street in front of the house and charged us exactly the amount estimated.
We were impressed - the actual work was all completed in a single day.

My wife and I conducted business with
Calera Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
.
He promptly returned our inquiry, scheduled a free estimate appointment, and arrived on time. He answered all of our questions and advised us appropriately. His quote was provided in short fashion. We were most impressed with his friendly nature and knowledge of what we needed to have completed. He explained everything. We had other estimates by competitors but
Calera Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
quote was virtually a fixed price to complete our work. Competitor quotes had a lot of 'if this, then this price' clauses. We understood that if beneath what we were having replaced had of had problems,
Calera Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
would have had to have had to charged more. But, we had confidence from the get-go that
Calera Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
knew our situation and priced accordingly.
We were originally scheduled 3-weeks out even though we were anxious to start our home rehabilitation projects. As luck would have it,
Calera Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
started their work almost immediately after we agreed to terms due to some of their other customers having scheduling conflicts. As an aside, we thought that our project would take a week.
Well...these guys are pros!
They arrived August 25 at 7:15 a.m. and finished around noon the next day. Their skill and work ethic is, in my opinion, unsurpassed. Their attention to detail was spot on.
Calera Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
did a fine job!
Our highest recommendations go to
Calera Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
. For those in their servicing area looking for an honest and exceptional concrete contractor...do not hold back.

I called
Calera Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
in
Calera Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
to schedule an estimate,and he arrived on schedule and on time. He was patient and explained everything and answered my questions He was honest when explaining what a sealer would do and wouldn't do to preserve my concrete. I told him I would call him in a month to schedule. Later it took awhile to find a time that worked for the both of us but when we did his worker
Calera Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
was on time. He was friendly and helpful and even moved a couple of heavy items out of the way for me. He did an excellent job of cleaning my concrete. He returned the next day and applied the sealer. I was very pleased with his work and appreciated his kindness.
Calera Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
came later to pick up his check and he asked for feedback about everything that had happened and said he is always interested in ways to improve his business. I think that is very rare with other contractors.

Went very well, My wife and I ask them to create round steps coming off the porch framed the steps in for a round shape. At the last moment we decided that the steps should remain square shaped to match the porch. They modified the frame and created square steps with out any issue. They also finished the transition to the driveway better than I thought it was going to be. We plan to have him come back and help put lights in the steps and a single line of railing down the middle.
Couple of pictures below : I take that back, don't know how to attach pictures because your form doesn't support attachments that i can see.
