"In all fairness
's work may be the best on the planet. Furthermore, I called
late in the year, and most concrete guys are trying" to get as much done as possible on existing jobs before the weather turns bad. Consequently, I had several guys tell me that they just could not get the work done this season. That being said, I was very disappointed that
made 3 different appointments with us and failed to make any of them. He could have called me to say he wasn't coming and didn't. When I called him the first time it seemed pretty evident he forgot and said he would stop by the next evening. Again, He didn't stop, and didn't call. I called him a 3rd time and he said he would "do his best to come by on the weekend" again no show and no call. I picked
because they were just 1 town away from where the work was to be done. Perhaps
was trying to be a nice guy, and felt because he was so close he could swing by on the way home. In this case, I wish
would have just said he was too busy, and allowed me to look for another quality contractor who wasn't as booked. If you call
, I would just make it apparent that your quote times are firm, and you expect him to call you if he can't make the appointment. Again, all the work reviews that I read about
were very positive.

"We had four different quotes and they came in the highest. What we liked about this company is that they developed the best plan to repair our front walkways and front steps to make" them appear as if they were meant to be that way. We decided to pay the extra money because their plan seemed the best. They did a beautiful job. They helped us by coming out quickly to do the job so they turned it around fast. They also were recommended by two or our neighbors so choosing them was an easy decision. The salesperson we spoke with was fabulous and was the one who came up with the great idea on how to fix the steps.

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.

?

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.

I had contacted this contractor because I had tile on my existing front porch that was causing problem in the winter and I wanted to see what my options were.
Nolanville Stamped Concrete Companies Provider Name Locked
came out within a couple days of initial communication. They were going to remove the existing tile and replace with fresh concrete and after talking with him I opted to have them do stamped concrete to give it some additional design, texture and color. I also decided to have them do my front walkway as well even though it was in good shape. The price was higher than other quotes I had received but I decided to do the stamped concrete instead of plain so I think this was part of the reasoning for the higher pricing.They contacted me to do the work a couple weeks later and were here over three days doing the work. The walkway & porch came out great. It's a nice color that goes well with my house and looks terrific. I also love the combined pattern I chose.

and his team were extremely responsive. I called him on a Saturday and he came over right away to provide an estimate. We needed an extremely quick turn around and he was able to oblige. The estimate was very acceptable and we were scheduled for a week later. The team needed to work around existing furniture and kept the room very clean while they sanded and prepped the walls and built-ins. The team painted the crown molding, base boards, and built-ins and it all came out better than we had hoped.
