"We were hoping we were going to be able to use the coupon for 999.00 but I guess our work wasn't more than 100 square feet so we couldn't but we still" ended up going with the company and we are satisfied with the work that was done. The first day they were late to start the job because their truck broke down but the second day they were there on time and everything was complete. I would have liked to have had the trash items picked up, a plastic bottle and a food wrapper, but that would be the only complaint.

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.

was fantastic to work with. Very easy to get a hold of, and very responsive if/when we needed to get in touch with him. We are extremely pleased with the finished product and would recommend using Company to anyone looking to get a new patio for their home.

The ramp went up pretty fast. And when they went to fix the electric to my shed, they found it was extremely dangerous! And disconnected the power to the shed as it was very unsafe. And animal had chewed through the wire and left it completely exposed to any person or animal. And accident waiting to happen for sure. And they didn't feel comfortable ...More fixing it without redoing it all. So we have to wait on that project. But we will call 's Service again to help fix it. Back to the ramp. The dogs didn't know how to walk on the new ramp that was for their benefit also. And 2 days after it was installed, the rain came and it was so nice to go down & up on it and not worry about falling through....

The work was done professionally, fast and as discussed. kept me informed of the progress of the work (as I was not on-site when the work was performed) and responded quickly and pleasantly to my calls ...More and questions. His work has been inspected by the City and passed without problems. I would highly recommend his services.

This company is a pleasure to work with.
Ash, owner, has a really good combination of expertise, professionalism, and care for the customer.
Our project was a concrete patio replacement at the back of the home. It looked easy -- quick demo and quick replace. But along the way, there were many obstacles to overcome ...More -- extra deep inches of concrete to excavate, rock walls and glass doors to protect, limited slope for drainage, and another concrete slab to tie into.
's expertise and professionalism allowed him to stay cool at every point. We were able to work together smoothly throughout the process -- even when the team had to change tactics in demolition and again when they had to pour the concrete deeper than expected to ensure a good final product. His entire team is kind, respectful, and a joy to have at the house. I am a hands-on, motivated homeowner who likes to understand and be involved in the process and allowed for that motivation, ensuring a good feeling all-around.
I have considerable experience with house projects and remodeling and have never written a review for someone who worked on our house. After working with Ash, I was inspired to do so. He is able to work constructively, determine a successful course of action, and ensure that the final product is great -- a combination of talent that is not easy to find in Utah.

The guy came and said the cost for the work I needed would be more than the price. He also said it was 2 men for 4 hours for the price, I could not get an firm estimate out of him and was not comfortable doing business with them so I cancelled the job.
