arrived on time to provide an estimate for the work. He carefully reviewed the current situation, listened to our needs, explained what could and could not be done, the warranties he would provide. The quote also arrived within the agreed time. We had another quote from a company found on our community listserv. It was shockingly three times higher for the same work.

and his crew arrived on schedule.

stayed much of the first day to supervise the crew, then left the foreman in charge, who was quite capable. The job was a 3-day job. The first day was prep day. They were careful not to damage anything, and even agreed to remove a large bush and add a square pad for our AC unit, which we were repositioning from the patio to the side of the house. No extra cost.
A major rainstorm was predicted the second day, so the crew covered exposed areas with plastic and work restarted the next day. They worked until 8:30 pm to get the concrete poured.

was also on-site the third day to supervise finishing touches and clean up. We were not fully satisfied with some of the joints (just cosmetic issues) and the crew was quick to make adjustments to our satisfaction.
They also went above and beyond by installing an underground plastic drainage pipe to the side of the patio that had nothing to do with the concrete work. When providing the estimate, we asked them if they could "do something", which we assumed would be a small cement pad to direct the water flow from the drainpipe. We were quite happy to see a much better solution. Again, no extra cost.
We would hire them again in an instant. In fact, we already are getting a quote for repointing some bricks on our 100 year old home.

A lot of the work was really quite good and we are happy.

and his team removed the old concrete to the back door and put down new brick pavers which look great. Unfortunately, when it rained, the water ran against the back wall of the house and into the basement (our home is over 100 years old), his team came back and put some concrete against the house to alter that flow. For this work, we'd give him an A.
He also dug out and removed an concrete slab in the back yard and put in a parking pad, nicely graded and built. The entrance is about 6-8" narrower than the top of the space, which is a little odd, but otherwise we're happy. For this work, we'd give him a B.
The problem is with the fence. The fence is in two parts, the part for the car to exit, and a part from the walkway for us to use. Neither part is really what we expected. The part for the car is wood on a steel frame. The wood is attached by nuts and bolts. A number of the bolts have already fallen off and disappeared. The holes made in the steel for the bolts to go through were not measured properly, so that means that the wood planks have holes in random places rather than nicely aligned. Some wood pieces weren't even secured.

came back and added a new piece of wood to the top as a "fix" but it's really not proper. The car gate doesn't open or close as easily as we expected it would, and the hole in the ground to secure it shut isn't really an idea that works since it is always filling with debris. The gate for the walkway is a problem as well. The team has returned maybe three times to fix this. First,

didn't change out the old wooden post, so the door sagged, meaning it no longer open properly, and couldn't be locked. Then they replaced the post, but the door sagged again, meaning the door couldn't be locked properly. This unfortunately

to our backyard getting broken into and our bike stolen. The team came out again to adjust the door up so it would lock, but it again has moved, and once again, the door locks only with difficultly.

should have made all three posts of steel, I don't know. But I do know that the fence as it now is, is not acceptable.

left me a voice mail after the last call to complain saying that fences move and that he would not be fixing it every time in the future. That goes against the 20 year warranty on our contract. Plus, I'm not even talking about a slight movement ten years down the road, I'm talking about having it work properly and consistently within the first months following construction.
I am hoping Angie's List can help resolve this. For the fence, we would give

The company gave a fair price, they were timely and professional. They cleared the existing crumbled parking pad and prepared and replaced it with a 20 X 40 parking pad.

The front stairs were completed quickly and they did a great job. In back, cracks appeared almost immediately and our drain was badly clogged, causing flooding off and on for several months.

kept in touch with me about the need to address the problems, and while most of the delay was due to the terrible weather this winter, it did take longer than I'd hoped to fix the problem. I'm giving them a good report anyway, though, and I'd definitely use the company for work again, because ultimately they did a wonderful job fixing up the problems with the back staircase. The stairs and landing look even better than I'd hoped.

They were prompt to answer and take my information, and the estimator was prompt to call and attempt to set up an estimate appointment, but I had left my phone at home for a long weekend away. After calling the estimator back several times (which I should have taken as a bad sign), he answered and we set up an appointment for between 9am-10am Saturday morning. I called him at 10 after 10am, no answer. No call no show. I so badly want to find someone reliable to do this job, but I guess it won't be

Initially, we established a written agreement that established the scope of work. The homeowner added an addendum that the contractor agreed added specifics to the original agreement. The contractor and homeowner established a work start date and work completion date. The contractor's crew started work as agreed to and did an outstanding job. The work was done in a very professional manner. This contractor is very detail oriented and has extremely standards for his work. At the end of the job the homeowner established a punch list of items that needed attention prior to finishing the job. The contractor's crew promptly addressed the items on the punch list and the homeowner happily paid the final bill. The work that the contractor did adds value to my house. It doesn't get better than that.

Called provider and discussed the project of rebuilding a concrete retaining wall. Sent provider pictures and sent drawings. Left messages and provider never came out.
Provider made promises but never kept them. This provider was totally non-responsive and unprofessional.

Wwork was performed in a professional manner. The service was above expectation. The work was completed in a timely manner and the work completed was better than what was the original work they were repairing.

I have a townhouse in DC originally built in 1880 that I recently discovered had a badly cracked beam supporting the roof and spanning the entire width of the house. I had a structural engineer come in to take a look at it and it was his opinion that the beam needed to be replaced as soon as possiblebecause "these main support beams in these older townhouses are chronically undersized for the load and they are known to break"...considering the beam was directly above my bed, I was needless to say in a hurry to get it done! The engineer ballparked the work to be in the $5-$15K range and recommended

for the work because he knew that they had done this exact repair job on several other townhouses of the same era in the area. I left a voicemail for

and he got right back to me within an hour to select a time to give an estimate; I explained the situation and the urgency and he was in my house with one of his guys to check it out within 24hrs. Let me try to explain just how HUGE a pain in the neck it is to access the beam in question; there is a very tight 2.5' crawlspace between the 2nd floor ceiling and the roof and is only accessible through a 2'x2' hatch in the MBR closet, I figured they were going to have to rip out half the ceiling as there's no other way to get materials up there.

said it wouldn't be a problem and they could get the entire job done in one day (I had mentally prepared for at LEAST 3-5 days), said he'd check on the cost of the necessary materials and get back to me with a quote. Got back to me that evening with a quote of $3,500...fantastic!
2-days later

and his guys showed up at exactly the planned time (8:30a); they put down drop cloth's from the moment they walked in the door, from the door, up the steps, through the hallway, and into the MBR which they covered in plastic so it wouldn't get dust etc all over the room...I don't think a single boot TOUCHED any of the rugs in the house! These guys had to get the huge replacement beams up into the crawlspace through a 2' hole in the ceilling, chipped away the brick on either side of the damaged beam so the new beams would be mortared into the brick wall, sandwiched them all together with bolts, repaired the hole in the ceiling, primed and painted the newly sheetrocked ceiling...and were out of there by 4pm!
I absolutely couldn't believe how quickly and professionally they got the job done and left the work area IMMACULATE. I will absolutely use them again, A++.
