Washington DC Concrete Contractors from people just like you.

worked with me and was very patient as I made up my mind on what I wanted done. He worked me into what I'm sure is a busy schedule as" soon as he could. I'm very please with the new driveway and the paver walkways and steps. One of my main concerns was proper runoff and I was pleased that
seemed as concerned about it as I was.

-Scott H.

"I found
to be a highly capable and experienced company. They do very good work. I especially appreciated the base underlayment they installed" under the concrete slabs.
is very knowledgeable and pleasant to work with. He had several good suggestions for the project. I would recommend their services.

Watch your step! A busted sidewalk not only looks bad, but it creates a tripping hazard.

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.



Concrete Repair reviews in Washington DC


Rich the owner is terrific. Been doing this for 35 years and he knows his stuff. From the get go the communications were excellent. He came out and gave us an estimate which was close to what we ended up with.
Answered all our questions - and there were many - very patiently. Gave us examples of streets to look on to see similar driveway finishes...that way we had a good idea of what we'd get.
Driveway looks fantastic.
Rich was a pleasure to work with and I recommend him to anyone looking for a new driveway.

After contacting

through Angie's list, we set up a time for an estimate.
Washington DC Concrete Contractors Provider Name Locked
showed up on time and prepaired for my MANY questions. The initial meeting was a great experience. We went over what was my initial plan,
Washington DC Concrete Contractors Provider Name Locked
told me exactly how the job would go and what to expect. As I said I ask a lot of questions and
Washington DC Concrete Contractors Provider Name Locked
was patient and also gave me some great ideas. (money saving ideas!) I received other estimates, consulted with my dad on a couple of things and ended up changing my initial plan.
Washington DC Concrete Contractors Provider Name Locked
gladly came out AGAIN to talk about the changes and gave me a new estimate. We scheduled the project while he was here the second time. We ended up having to delay by a couple of days due to the Labor Day holiday which was no big deal. When it came time to get started
Washington DC Concrete Contractors Provider Name Locked
and his guys were here on time or EARLY...(that never happens!) and everything went as planned. They left everything neat and clean and pretty much ready to enjoy. I am looking forward to working with

again on a couple of more projects. I would reccomed

to anyone who is looking for this type of work. Expect professionalism, punctuality and a super laid back experience.

Washington DC Concrete Contractors Provider Name Locked
and JR were courteous and quoted me several estimates as the complexity of the job changed and the work proceeded. I asked for a breakdown of the final estimate of $5,150.00 and they said they didn't do that. I had my doubts then, but the work was already in progress so I let them proceed. The new patio they poured was satisfactory except hose

incorrectly reconstructed the wooden fence. A piece of the fence was left over so he cut other parts of the fence to "make it fit". The boards were not put back in the correct order, as some boards were higher than others, and one unpainted side of a board that had been facing the other way was now showing, as well as other unpainted parts. When I talked with
Washington DC Concrete Contractors Provider Name Locked
about this, he said that's the way it had been. I was upset and talked to JR about it. In response, JR asked me if I believed in God and in
Washington DC Concrete Contractors Provider Name Locked
, our Savior. He further declared that I should be thankful for the things God has given me, and this little fence episode was nothing to get upset about. He said
Washington DC Concrete Contractors Provider Name Locked
was in the car crying about it. I responded, rather sarcastically, that God and the fence had nothing to do with each other.
Washington DC Concrete Contractors Provider Name Locked
said they did and walked back, crying, to his vehicle.
I took pictures of the fence. If I had made two grown men cry, I was very sorry, but was still upset about the fence.
JR and
Washington DC Concrete Contractors Provider Name Locked
came back with
Washington DC Concrete Contractors Provider Name Locked
, a "fence guy" who worked for a fence company in town.
Washington DC Concrete Contractors Provider Name Locked
still denied putting the fence back in the wrong way. JR asked
Washington DC Concrete Contractors Provider Name Locked
to wait in the car. As
Washington DC Concrete Contractors Provider Name Locked
reconstructed the fence once more, he and JR were laughing at the job
Washington DC Concrete Contractors Provider Name Locked
had done.
Washington DC Concrete Contractors Provider Name Locked
aligned the fence and all but the corner where the missing piece had been looked pretty much like it had originally. The missing piece couldn't be used because
Washington DC Concrete Contractors Provider Name Locked
had cut parts of it to fit in a place it didn't belong.
Washington DC Concrete Contractors Provider Name Locked
had an extra board he was going to use to replace the one ruined by the cutting.
Washington DC Concrete Contractors Provider Name Locked
wasn't certain on how to make the corner look like it had before
Washington DC Concrete Contractors Provider Name Locked
had put the fence back together, so he said he needed a day or two to think about it, gave me his phone number, and left with JR.
To date,
Washington DC Concrete Contractors Provider Name Locked
has not returned my calls.

Washington DC Concrete Contractors Provider Name Locked
came in early June to give us a quote, that we were happy with. He told us at the time that he was unavailable until after August 15th. He were fine with that as long as it was completed by the end of August. He called just before that to set up a date for the following week. He came with a crew of about 4 guys (all very professional, unlike crew a neighbor used who were swearing all day..). They tore out on a Monday and due to his concern about weather and inspection, secured the pouring for 2 days later.

- Dawn R.

Very smoothly. From estimate to installation, they were very professional, prompt, and answered all questions with reasonable and easy to understand answers. Time for project was exact and total cleanup was done.
- Linda R.

Huge waste of time calling these guys for a
Washington DC Concrete Contractors Provider Name Locked
quote. Very
misleading description of services. Needed a quote to install a backyard
drain & run a pipe to get drainage away from patio & house -
Described project on phone. Estimator was over an hour late for
appointment & took all of 2 minutes to tell us he doesn't do that
kind of work. Very disappointed.

It went great and the work was done in 2 and a half days. It was a big messy job too, our house(built in 1929 it was) was full of odd ball surprises and they made everything most awesome!
