"They were more expensive than the other
that we contacted, but we chose the company because it was the only one that would guarantee its work. Furthermore," the crew arrived on time, acted professionally, and did a good job.

"I had 3 walk slabs leading up the house that were sloping towards the foundation and created a trip hazard. I also discovered large voids underneath the front stoop and wanted to fill" to help some water drainage issues along the foundation. Went with
based on reviews and quotes I received. They weren't the cheapest, but seemed the most responsive to the issues I was facing. Was able to negotiate a little better price than originally quoted. They were pretty backed up and said it would take about a month to get scheduled, which was fine with me. I received a phone call the day before they were coming out to do the work, again, fine with me, just wasn't going to be home at the time. The work itself, by nature, is relatively messy with the mud they use. They drill small holes in the slabs and pump material underneath to level them. I was happy with the end product and looked ok, a bit of mud residue was on the stoop and in the lawn (which I was expecting). My neighbors were home at the time and told me a little more about the work. They used my outside faucet and didn't hook it up very well, which was leaking/draining around my foundation (as noted above, I've been having drainage issues around my foundation). My neighbor was nice enough to tighten the hose connection to stop the leak. Apparently their pump had broke in the service truck that took them some time to fix. The truck was parked in the street and created a bit of a traffic hazard during the repair. There was a lot more mud residue on the driveway which my neighbors had asked them to clean. Overall, end result was good, would have liked a little more attention and care to the details during the actual work.

"WOW! They were fast, professional and priced right. It was difficult to get some
companies to even come out and give us an estimate for what they described" was such "a small job". Not
. They came right out, gave us an estimate and explained the whole
process. We signed the contract, scheduled a work time and the job was done in one day. We love our sidewalk and can't imagine we waited so long to have it fixed. We are so glad we found
and will definitely use them again in the future for any concrete leveling work we may need.

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.

?
?

Unless it was a monolithic pour (poured as part of the foundation wall) you should have nothing to worry about with a jack hammer in the hands of a skilled worker and it is highly unlikely it was. I have never seen this done in my 40 plus years in the business. There probably is a piece of expansion joint material between the wall and the slab and even if not the joint between the wall and the slab should creat a weak point that will break.

They did a great job! Very professional, responsive and competent. We wanted to make sure our front steps, which had sunk about 4 inches, were not a trip hazard anymore.

was quick to get us a quote, and after obtaining a few others, we called to schedule the work. They were able to work us in quickly, arrived when promised and completed the job in no time! Happy to have nice front porch stairs again. We would certainly recommend them to others.

The sidewalk at my home's back door was pitching in toward the steps and foundation, which allowed water to pool there. The basement wall would get wet during heavy rain.

was very straightforward and informative and urged me "not to waste my money" on leveling but to have the whole garage floor replaced. He referred me to a company who does that kind of work and got I very reasonable estimate to replace both the garage floor and complete driveway. It is refreshing to meet an honest sales rep who does the right thing. I highly recommend

.
P.S. It pays to educate yourself, do your homework and get more than one estimate. I previously had two other companies look at the garage floor, Company A said "yes, they could do the leveling for $2,000". Company B said " don't waste your money and get it replaced". Unfortunately, Company B referred me to Company C, who gave me an estimate of $9 K just to replace the garage floor.

After reading the reviews I should not have been so surprised at how professional this family owned business was. Unfortunately in the past I have experienced other contractors show up late, leave early, and spend most of their time with a cell phone in one hand and a cigarette in the other and use profanity. This did not happen with this company. From the beginning with the bid, Mr.

and son showed up on time and worked tirelessly throughout the day to complete both jobs. They were friendly and willing to answer any questions I had. You could tell that they did not try to "hurry the job" but took the time to distribute the mud-

material evenly in the holes. They obviously have the experience to do the job correctly. They cleaned up the work-site completely.

The owner himself does the work. He had to raise our 20 year old sidewalk over 7 inches! He did a fantastic job. He is professional and takes his time to make sure the work is done right. This was a difficult job due to the slabs being sunk so far below what is code. From our front stoop all the way to our driveway, he lifted the slabs and leveled the entire walkway without any cracking. His prices are very reasonable. I shopped around and received quotes from 5 other companies. I would highly recommend

to anyone looking for these services and I would certainly use them again if the need arises.

Came out in a couple of days for a quote. Started work within a time frame they quoted me when here. I didn't even know they were here until the sounds of the
Haymarket Foundation Contractors Provider Name Locked
hammer started making the filler holes. Three man crew were efficient and professional. I feel they went beyond expectations by filling in an area that's always been open and been a problem with debris collecting between a step and the front porch. They cemented over the plugs and filled cracks so the walk looks almost like new. A low spot that always collects water and then ices during the winter will do so no more, Some of the 'lifts' to the slabs were 3-4 inches! It even feels different to walk on the walk now. Great job and I highly recommend
