"It did take some time for him to schedule my house which I fully understood since he gets busy. He does nice work and when we finally got a date, he stuck to" it. When it was done, I called asking him to look at an area since it looked like it needed more top coat. He came right out and looked and put another coat on it. I recommend him for not only resurfacing but to install your patio.

Concrete repair: How to avoid common scams

If you have a concrete driveway or patio, repair is inevitable. Understanding the quote and repair process can help save money on a needed concrete repair.

Foundation Repair, Concrete - Pouring & Repair

Pouring a foundation is the first critical step in building your home, so make sure you know what to look for if you're hiring a custom builder or doing a portion of the work yourself. Here are some foundation basics.

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.

 

Don

?

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.

Highly unethical with use of illegal workers who were complaining about being minimally paid and not being paid for transportation time and overtime. Foreman left worksite during work hours frequently. At times he was intoxicated. Another foreman was not even able to speak English fluently. Disorganization in following plans and purchase of materials. Business Owner asked for side payment, fishy use of ghost suppliers and cash payment to avoid reporting tax revenue. Unreliability of how many workers would show up. Some workers showed up

. Very unprofessional, unreliable and unethical. End job had to be repeated because of errors in reading plans and poor execution of concrete finishing.

The finished product was as expected. A change order was handled easily and at a fair price. The job was executed with intensity, which is to say they started and kept working until they were done. Clean up was good.
Five years later we have had some movement at the stairs and some hairline cracks by the house - which we expect because of our expansive clay soils. However, the walkways /stairs are holding together and look great.

arrived promptly and got right to work. Repairs to the water damage on the shower ceiling are almost unnoticeable. Hole in the closet wall was fixed. Cleaned up so that I couldn't even tell he'd been here. This company does many other kinds of repairs and renovations. Will definitely be calling them back!

So far, they moved the old concrete out and put in some gravel. They came about 2 or 3 weeks later with the concrete truck to get new concrete poured. They took out the old retaining wall and put in a new wall which turned out not to be long enough to cover the entire driveway length (30 feet on a 75-foot driveway). We have paid $14,000.00 so far but they have yet to finish the job and tell us we still owe around $2,824.00, and we have not heard from them in two or three weeks since we last saw them. They hauled dirt and left it piled all over the place around the driveway. They have been inconsistent and change their story every time we speak with them. We just want the job finished and approved. We want to move into the house as soon as possible and as of now we have nowhere to park.

was very quick to call me back and provided a quote within a day. The quote was printed on the spot so I knew everything involved.
It has been a rainy month so there was a bit of time between the quote and getting the work completed, but

Justice came when he was schedule to and gave me an estimate of $150 to clean the grease spot off my concrete patio. I didn't want to pay that much, so he helped me out and told me the name of the product he'd use and where to get it. He didn't have to do that and it was very much appreciated!! He is a very nice man and I would recommend him. Based on his honesty and integrity, I'm sure takes pride in his work!

, one of the partners, is a lovely man, and a real pleasure to deal with - he made a stressful undertaking much less so. His recommendation of an iron works vendor for the railings was also "spot on" - reliable and timely and professional service from them too. All in all, my experience with

They don't have an actual business office, so use relatives to answer the phone when they are busy. It was hard to reach them several times, but they did always call us back. The actual work...breaking up and hauling away the old concrete, laying forms and pouring the concrete went well. Because of rain, we were without a driveway for a week, but that wasn't their fault. The new driveway looks great! They did such a nice job, we are having them do a patio in the spring.
