"It took us a while to hook up,but that was my fault because I travel a lot. Mr. Battalglia was very good about returning phone calls and when we were able to secure" a date,his crew was there at my front door at 7:30 A.M. and stayed until 6:30 P.M. and actually finished the job..They took care not to get dust and debris on my neighbor's car and clean up was very thorough. I would definitely recommend
to anyone.

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.

We're extremely happy with the concrete work by
Longview Concrete Contractors Provider Name Locked
, it's just as we had envisioned. It was definitely not an easy job for several reasons. There is limited access to the back yard, so no large equipment could be used, requiring all excavation to be done by hand. Making it even more labor intensive were huge tree roots from a 30-year-old tree we had removed recently. Also, we've had drainage problems for some time due to clogged drains, most likely from tree roots.

addressed the problem by grading the area and installing a new system of drains.

is very honest, personable, and a true professional. We had scheduled the job well in advance and were delighted when he was able to start a few days ahead of schedule.

Outstanding, explained everything, defined exactly what we were to receive: 4000PSI, 4inches thick, apron was 6 inches thick, with fiber mesh for reinforcement on limestone chips that were compacted. Took care of all permits and inspections. They also installed new drain that I provided. Driveway looks great.

Late in 2014,

. poured a concrete foundation and built a 30' X 30' detached garage behind our house. We paid the owner $33,000 in 3 payments of $11,000 each. The invoice has been paid in full. The main issue now is that the concrete immediately cracked all across the floor and continues to have more "spiderweb" cracks each day. The owner of

, came back out in May 2015 and offered to pay for Epoxy to be applied, in order to prevent further cracking. We have been ignored since that time. His mantra has become, "I am short on funds." We have gotten estimates from other contractors for repairing our foundation, and they have each pointed out the reasons why the floor is cracking - all due to poor workmanship by

The owner (

) was great to deal with--he gave us an estimate quickly, then was flexible with his installation dates to coordinate with another crew that we had working installing stonework. He communicated with us to let us know exactly when the driveway would be installed. The crew showed up when they said they would, did a great job, and the owner's son worked on the crew and directed them.

and his crew were terrific! They arrived on time and worked non-stop. This was a 2-day job and they were not only extremely professional, but friendly and such perfectionists! They worked long and hard to get the final product looking perfect. They made sure everything was level and the new concrete meshed well with the remaining old concrete. They were careful around my plantings and cleaned up after themselves. Would highly recommend this company and this crew.

subcontracted the work to another company who arrived and very poorly addressed my driveway issues. They failed to fill the cracks, filled the potholes with a loose material that immediately began to wash away from the potholes and did not slope the drive away from the house as promised, resulting in standing water at the foundation of the house.
I spoke to

and sent him pictures of the work. He agreed to do the repairs himself and apologized for the poor quality of the work. He then schedule an appointment for follow up, but failed to show up. At this time he is not returning my calls or texts or my requests for a refund.
I had to hire another company to redo the entire driveway.

showed up the evening before they were to start to drop off supplies and some tools for the guys to have when they arrived in the morning. They showed up promptly at 8am and just behind them was a dumpster full of the gravel they needed for back filling where the patio was to go. We wanted it poured up to door height (about 18" from the ground) so they had to back fill that area with gravel. Within 3 hours all 14 tons of gravel were moved by wheelbarrow. Meanwhile someone had entirely broken up the old parking pads with a
Longview Concrete Contractors Provider Name Locked
hammer. The old concrete was loaded into the dumpster and the area was graded for the pour two days later. While the dumpster was being loaded the sod was removed for the walkway and it was laid out and formed up.
The next morning the dumpster was picked up and the rest of the forming completed. On pour day the concrete arrived on schedule and they had the entire driveway and walkway poured and finished in a few hours. After the pour they completed the forming and grading for the patio. A day or two later the patio was poured and stamped with the color/pattern we chose.
They returned after the 72 hour curing window to acid wash and seal the patio. The guys left a pile for
Longview Concrete Contractors Provider Name Locked
to pick up and within a day or two the equipment was picked up and no mess was left. We are extremely happy with the work they did. The guys are hard working and were flexible to a couple of small changes we requested along the way. I recommend them to anyone asking about concrete!
