Our experience with
started with me leaving a voicemail with them one evening. I received a phone call back the very next morning. I put together a sketch of what we wanted for our patio and they scheduled a meeting to meet me at my house to review.
was 30 minutes late for our meeting. We discussed the project and received a quote for the work. After several changes to our sketch, we finalized the design and finalized the final quote. The work was scheduled for approximately one week later, however due to poor weather, the patio work was postponed several days. The work was completed in two days with excavation completed on the first day and concrete work on the second day.
The quality of the patio was great, it was exactly what we requested and the work was well done. There were a few concerns that I brought to their attention after the work was completed (loose gravel in grass, and concrete splashed on siding), however, they returned the next day to address. I was very impressed with their communication and eagerness to address the concerns I had. I highly recommend

It took
a week or two to initially respond to my phone call, but considering that no other company was any better at that, I didn't complain much there. At least he called back unlike many of the other places. He showed up for our estimate, which was also a plus since we had other companies make appointments and then not show up, but after that it was a pain to get in touch with him. He was supposed to come by with our contract on a Monday and never showed up. I had to call and leave him messages (because he doesn't answer his phone) to see when he was going to come by. He finally came over in mid-May with the contract and told me to call him when we got our
approval. He said he would tentatively
us down for the first week of June. I called him 2-3 times the first week of June and left him messages letting him know we had gotten our
approval and wanted to know when he would be out to do the patio. He didn't call me back for a week, and when he did call back he basically blamed me for this not getting done! He said that "he wished he would have known about the
approval" the previous week because his crew was out in our area and could have gotten the patio done. I told him I had left several messages, and he said he had just recently checked them. What business owner doesn't check voicemail messages for a week?! Needless to say I was fuming after that conversation. He said he would call me a day or two before they were going to come out to do the patio. I waited for about two weeks and then left him a couple of voicemail messages just inquiring about when he thought they might be coming out. As usual, no response. I was just about to leave a final message letting him know that we were about to start looking elsewhere when he finally called and said they would be coming out. The job finally got started on
7th and got finished on the 12th. The prep work was all done on Monday, the concrete poured and stamped on Wednesday, and the sealant applied on Saturday. I love the patio because I've been waiting for it for so long, but I have to force myself to overlook the obvious imperfections in the stamping. I watched a video on how the stamping process works before ours was stamped simply because I was curious, and the man in the video made sure to fix any imperfections that occurred in between the stamping plates, and
and his crew took no such time to do so. There are some seams that look horrendous. My husband says that it's concrete that's supposed to look like stones and he has no issues with it, but it bothers me because I know that there are guys out there that would have taken the time to make it look better. Either
has no issue with the imperfections or he doesn't take enough pride in his work, I'm not sure which. When the time came to pay
he asked me for a check. I guess anyone who has worked with a contractor knows that they don't take credit, but I have not worked with a contractor before and did not know, so I was assuming we could use credit.
never established this information ahead of time, so we had to hurry to move funds around to be able to pay him. Now this is mainly my problem and misunderstanding, but I would think that in order to avoid this type of understanding that a business owner would make this information clear BEFORE completing the work! Now that he has his money he probably doesn't care about any concerns we have, because I called
a couple of days ago to ask about some spots on the patio that don't look or feel like they are sealed, and while he said he would be out anytime between Thursday and Saturday, it is now Tuesday of the following week and he has not shown up or called. Overall it was extremely aggravating to work with
because of his lack of responsiveness. He's a very nice guy, but he really needs to work on his customer service. I understand that someone in this line of work is going to be very busy at this time of year, but that does not excuse his lack of professionalism. I don't know how he has been in business for over 30 years if he handles his business this way. I also don't understand how he has not gotten better at stamping concrete over the 20 plus years that he said he's been doing it. So if you want stamped concrete that looks like a professional did it and you want it done in a timely manner by someone who values your business, DO NOT go through

We have a small backyard addition being built about 10 feet wide by 20 feet long with a covered outdoor area.
Alexandria Stamped Concrete Companies Provider Name Locked
came in and designed a beautiful layout for a patio that completely surrounded the addition. The one continuous pour provides a walking area from our side gate out around the end of the addition back under our new covered area and stops at our new back door. It is grey colored concrete stamped to look like stone with a border of contrasting color.
Alexandria Stamped Concrete Companies Provider Name Locked
also incorporated two corners that sweep to a point so the patio is not just a square slab. Results are great looking and complement two other stamped patios that were put in a few years ago. The new patio butts up against one of the old patios so
Alexandria Stamped Concrete Companies Provider Name Locked
incorporated a step down from the new to the old. It is seamless and beautiful. A big part of the job was removing dirt and debris and leveling the area. All work was done quickly as possible and cleanup afterwards was above and beyond.
Alexandria Stamped Concrete Companies Provider Name Locked
did a small retaining wall years ago for us and it has withstood the shoving of dirt and heavy equipment used to make way for the removal of a huge stump and excavation for a slab foundation. He even carried the stones to an empty field across the street to be cut, so the dust stayed off the neighbors and my house. We would not hesitate to use
Alexandria Stamped Concrete Companies Provider Name Locked
in the future and even the men finishing our addition remarked how nice it looks. Payment was $1000 deposit, the remainder when job was done to customers satisfaction. Plenty fair in my opinion.
We highly recommend

and would like to remind members that they do all kinds of stonework, not just stamped concrete.

We hired
Alexandria Stamped Concrete Companies Provider Name Locked
from
Alexandria Stamped Concrete Companies Provider Name Locked
to resurface our pool deck and the outside of our spa, as well as install a French drain. We were impressed with
Alexandria Stamped Concrete Companies Provider Name Locked
's confidence in being able to do a great job and make our pool deck look terrific and be funcitional. We received five quotes from various contractors before choosing
Alexandria Stamped Concrete Companies Provider Name Locked
. His price was right in the middle and he could get started quickly. With his stellar Angie's list and BBB ratings, we signed a contract and were excited to see our new pool deck. We were away on Spring Break when they were able to finally get started, though my parents were there to oversee it. My mother called to express concern that the French drain was being installed at a distance of over 3 feet from the side of the house which is where the water gathers, rather than next to the house as we had agreed upon. I talked with
Alexandria Stamped Concrete Companies Provider Name Locked
and he assured me that he would build up the area where the water pooled against the house so that the water would run towards the drain. This sounded a little difficult to accomplish to me since we have accordion shutters there and it appeared to me that it would be tough to build it up enough with the shutters located where they are. But
Alexandria Stamped Concrete Companies Provider Name Locked
was very confident that it would all work out. After they were finished I loved the look of my deck and the back of the spa was gorgeous! However, at the first rain, we had the exact same standing water as before even though
Alexandria Stamped Concrete Companies Provider Name Locked
had installed an expensive French drain and "built it up" so the water would supposedly run appropriately. I called him to let him know about the problem. He came out to check out the problem and then sent someone to "fix" it. Due to weather, etc, they didn't come when they initially planned, and showed up on a day when I wasn't home. Imagine my surprise when I came out to my pool deck to find 2 inch diameter
Alexandria Stamped Concrete Companies Provider Name Locked
ALL over my pool deck, where our best guess is they drug the machine they had used to grate down the surface in order to build it back up. These
Alexandria Stamped Concrete Companies Provider Name Locked
are ALL over. Besides looking bad, the integrity of the surface is compromised and is no longer sealed. I called
Alexandria Stamped Concrete Companies Provider Name Locked
once more and he eventually came to check them out. He told me they were "heel
Alexandria Stamped Concrete Companies Provider Name Locked
" that sometimes show up. They are NOT heel
Alexandria Stamped Concrete Companies Provider Name Locked
. They were not there before the man came to "fix" the French drain issue. Heel
Alexandria Stamped Concrete Companies Provider Name Locked
don't just show up in the middle of the day one day and heel
Alexandria Stamped Concrete Companies Provider Name Locked
don't take off the paint and sealant. The surface has been scraped and it's like the person was dragging this thing around the pool deck and was completely unaware that it was marring the surface. Not only are there these
Alexandria Stamped Concrete Companies Provider Name Locked
, THE WATER STILL STANDS!!! And the parts that they "built up" to try to fix the drainage problem (which didn't fix anything at all) weren't ever fully painted or sealed.
Alexandria Stamped Concrete Companies Provider Name Locked
said they would come back and take care of it and we haven't seen or heard from him since. My husband has called at least 5 times and was convinced that "
Alexandria Stamped Concrete Companies Provider Name Locked
was a good guy and that he would call us back and take care of the problem" but the job was done in March and April and we still have had NO return calls (as of
Alexandria Stamped Concrete Companies Provider Name Locked
!). I also called and tried to talk to him, but
Alexandria Stamped Concrete Companies Provider Name Locked
doesn't answer our calls. We are not complainers and had been very flexible with them and had let them come when they could as they worked around other jobs. It ended up taking much longer than they had initially said it would and we never once complained. We are highly disappointed and didn't ask for anything except for the job to finished and done correctly.
Alexandria Stamped Concrete Companies Provider Name Locked
even told me that they put the drain where they did because it was easier so that they wouldn't have to "mess with the screen enclosure". And not to get nit-picky, but a stone on the spa has already detached as well. Every time I go out to the pool deck, I feel sick to my stomach at the mess that was made of it and the huge amount of money we threw out the window.
Alexandria Stamped Concrete Companies Provider Name Locked
seemed like a nice guy and I trusted him. Before the first rain (when we saw the water pooling everywhere) we were singing his praises and thought the deck looked great. After seeing the pools of water, we still trusted that he would fix the problem. Even after the massacre of the deck by their grinding machine, we still believed that he would somehow make it right. On all fronts we were mistaken. We would highly advise you not to use his services. We are still hoping that the phone will ring and that he will rectify the problem. If so, we will definitely let you know.

We are very pleased.
Alexandria Stamped Concrete Companies Provider Name Locked
responded promptly to our initial request and did everything he promised from that point on. He & his helper arrived on time everyday and worked non-stop. We knew going in that concrete is unpredictable in how it responds to stain. When the acid based stain revealed some flaws,
Alexandria Stamped Concrete Companies Provider Name Locked
was ready with a solution. He applied a water based stain - an extra step in work & time - no extra charge. He takes great pride in the finished product and will do whatever it takes to achieve a near perfect result. The front porch was stained & scored in a brick pattern - it looks just like a
Alexandria Stamped Concrete Companies Provider Name Locked
tile job. The patio is beautiful in a dark brown stain(a special
Alexandria Stamped Concrete Companies Provider Name Locked
blend) with a black border(another
Alexandria Stamped Concrete Companies Provider Name Locked
idea). They were very careful in the prep work, so the stain didn't get on any surroundings. Great result. We would definitely hire
Alexandria Stamped Concrete Companies Provider Name Locked
again. Thanks!!

GOOD at first until i had some concerns
Alexandria Stamped Concrete Companies Provider Name Locked
never returned my phone calls or my emails she just ignored me!!! i had some questions regarding the patio after it was installed she told me she would be out next week> she never called or showed up. I had sprinkler heads sticking out of the ground i had to say something to them. Now after the fact i have to get someone to reroute my down spout or the water will flood my flower bed. I would have thought these are the types of things they could suggest to the customer on what to do about. One day they were leaving and these guys spoke to my father about the plans of returning tomorrow and what needed to be done that night and my father was sitting in garage pretty much sleeping (whom was dying condition) had no clue what these people were saying to him. I come out after i noticed they were done and they leave without speaking to me!! I was trying to ask my dad what they said but my dad had no clue. I was the customer not my father!!! The original plan i got taken!
Alexandria Stamped Concrete Companies Provider Name Locked
measured to the end of house and gave me estimate on that!!! but then when
Alexandria Stamped Concrete Companies Provider Name Locked
came out and remeasured before starting work he says the original measure did not cover at end of house so i had to pay extra for them going to the end of house which i feel was not right!! I did understand paying the extra for the additional i added after the fact. I was happy at first which is why i chose them, i had 5 different companies come out but now i feel they do everything to get your business then once they have your money then you are nothing they don't have to respond to questions or deal with you in any way!!!

Our cool-deck is 11 years old and is a series of 12 irregularly shaped separate pods of varying sizes that take up most of an over-sized backyard. The surface had deteriorated in several places to expose large areas of the original concrete.
Alexandria Stamped Concrete Companies Provider Name Locked
arrived to provide an estimate and discussed the details of the job thoroughly. He also arranged for us to meet at a nearby location that he had recently completed so we could see an actual job rather than just viewing a photo gallery. The job took five days and was prepped well. It involved excavating rocks from between the pods so that they could get to the entire pod and removing the original surface (two days). Surprisingly, there was very little dust left behind from all of the grinding away. They covered the rim of the pool and you couldn't tell that anything entered the pool itself even though they hauled out approximately 7 large trash bags of the old surface and it all hugs the pool. They applied texturing (two days) to the renovated surface. On Day 5, they applied the stain and two coats of sealer and relocated the rocks back between the pods. We were presented with a board showing about 9 different colors to work with and, instead, I spoke with
Alexandria Stamped Concrete Companies Provider Name Locked
about trying to match the color to the flagstone surrounding the pool and fireplace. He said they could match it and to disregard the color board as they would create a custom color set. This was the only area of criticism in that there was miscommunication as we expected to have finished sample boards to choose from to approve and, instead, the sample was created on the spot so we only saw one. To their credit, they hit the
Alexandria Stamped Concrete Companies Provider Name Locked
on the color and not only does it match the flagstone but the texturing jumps out with a blend of colors --- this covers practically the entire yard so its a big deal for this to look good and it does. The crew arrived on time each day and kept the work area neat when they left.
Alexandria Stamped Concrete Companies Provider Name Locked
was very easy to work with and the overall experience was top notch and hassle-free.
