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 purchased the $49 3D Image Sketch for a Kitchen renovation. I gave

many dates to choose from, but it took about 2 weeks for a contractor to come to my home because they kept telling me they were swamped with other work. When the contractor finally came to my house on 7/14, he seemed nice and knowledgeable. Said he would send me a few different sketches with kitchen renovation designs, and that I should have them in a week. Today

2 weeks since his home visit, and I still hadn't heard anything so I reached out to him today. He told me his computer hard drive crashed and he's not sure when he can get it up and running. He also said "You can go with another contractor if you want." I prepaid for these 3D sketches, and he is basically implying that he can't get the job done. Also, he offered no opportunity for a refund today, and instead steered me away. This has been a very frustrating experience -- I suggest

Atlas began the resurfacing job on the day he said he would; however, problems with the cement adhering to the painted surface caused him not to be able to finish and he said he would return the next day. For the next two weeks he failed to return at the times he said he would and he did not return phone calls. I called the office and talked to
Marion Concrete Contractors Provider Name Locked
Atlas and explained the situation. I said I wanted the job finished before I went on vacation on June 2 or I wanted my $700 back. She asked if he could finish the job while I was away and I said "No" because the water would be turned off. On June 7 I received an email from my sister-in-law stating that

Atlas came to finish the porch while she was there watering the plants, and since the water was on he went ahead, even though I had told
Marion Concrete Contractors Provider Name Locked
Atlas that I didn't want the work done while I was away. The email also stated that he ran out of material before he finished. My concern was that there would be a noticeable seam between the part he finished and the part that was still to be finished. On June 10 I received another email stating that

Atlas had come back and finished the job. When I returned from vacation on June 23 and looked at the porch I was appalled at the terrible way that it looked. The surface was not smooth; there were lumps of cement, pits and ridges covering the entire surface. Some areas were darker than others. In the area where he had run out of cement and returned to finish, he missed a two-square-foot area entirely and he left an overlap ridge where he continued. He also got cement on the bricks that border the porch. I called the office and complained about the poor, unfinished quality of the work to

an overall "A" because I do like it. A "B" for price because he made more work and cost of a landscaper for me which I was not expecting. A "B" for quality because of the different colors on the walkway.

came out that Saturday, per my request, to meet me and take a look at everything. They provided a quote later that day that was acceptable. I asked for a quick turn-around because it was holding up other projects I needed to do. They were out the following Wednesday to do the concrete. Came home from work and the project was complete. Other concrete companies were 10+ weeks out.
The quality of work was excellent. Communication was great, Aviance always kept me in the loop on what was going on. They were easy to deal with and did everything I wanted. I would definitely use them again on another project.
