"They said they could do it. They blew my driveway up and didn't move anything, not even half an inch. When the guy came out to look at it after I complained" he said he didn't know why the guy thought they could mudjack it, Then they wouldn't give me a refund. I had plenty of evidence I just didn't want to take it to small claims court. They offered me half and I settled for it. It was still a ripoff. The kid that came out to do the mudjacking was good, but the expert and owner were not.

"I called three companies for an estimate to pour a driveway on top of a patch gravel driveway. The first was thoroughly professional and gave a written estimate" for $8000. The second simply wrote on the back of his card "$4200". Den of JacTak prepared a written bid of $4000, with a 5% discount. I gave him the go-ahead. His crew worked very quickly and poured exactly the way I wanted. Den said he could pour a sidewalk along the side of the house, which would bring the total up to the original $4000. I approved. Pour was finished in one day. It now looks great and I'm very happy with it. No complaints whatsoever.

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. 

 

 

?

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.

When I contacted
Vienna Foundation Contractors Provider Name Locked
he was very friendly and professional. We scheduled for him to come out sometime during the week. It was not an emergency and time was not an issue. He came out to look at the needed repair in a timely manner even without the scheduled time frame. After he looked at our needs he met with and reported that what we needed was something that really didn't need his services. He told me that the concrete hadn't sunk but had moved away from the home due to the drought of 2013. He explained many homes had the same type of problems after the drought. He then said the concrete most likely stopped moving. He suggested that we simply

point where the bricks were coming away from the exterior of the house. He even mentioned a few companies that if needed could assist us further. He was honest, professional and friendly. If we need his services (raising concrete slabs such as sidewalks, driveways, steps and such) we will use him.. You can appreciate a person that gives it to you straight even if it means they don't get the business. Top Notch.

My house was struck by lightening, and caught on fire. He has been in charge of all the restoration process. He is wonderful, very confident and personable. He's very concerned about what I want done and how I want it done. He doesn't try to pressure me to do other things. He's very sensitive to the fact that I'm an older woman. He also is very knowledgable about historic renovation.

I called this provider twice asking to be contacted to arrange an estimate - once just after Thanksgiving and again in early February. The message on their phone indicates that they are done providing this service until the spring but to leave a voicemail. I have done so twice with no reply.

They did this work in freezing temperatures with high winds. They worked all day for 2 days straight and they left the place immaculately clean. I’ve never seen anybody work so hard in such terrible conditions and they were so pleasant the whole time! I will definitely have them back again to do more work because they were superb.

The men came and immediately raised the blocks that were in question plus another block that leveled my sidewalk. They cleaned up any mess and gave me directions for the next 24 hours to make sure it sets well.
My sidewalk is great, which I realized when I had to shovel - no spots that were raised and forced me to pick up the shovel or mess with the snow blower. Why did wait so long to do this project! It is worth the money and within a half an hour, maybe more, it was completed. I love the result.

Very responsive in coming out to look at the work and provide a cost estimate. The only issue that I had was the actual scheduling to do the work. It took a little while to get up on their schedule, and then, they had to reschedule twice which wasn't great for me as I had taken off work to be home. The first time was due to cold, wet weather which was understandable, but the second time, another more profitable project caused mine to be rescheduled. One piece of the equipment did breakdown so they had to finish up a couple of days later since we were going into the weekend. The crew was professional and hardworking, and I was pleased with the final results. They cleaned up after the work was completed.

was much more reasonably priced than other area companies that I had contacted for cost estimates. This was a relatively small job so other companies seemed to apply additional polyjack material costs to the pricing.
