"I am a new owner building a restaurant and needed some help with a concrete cutting contractor and I was very frustrated, because I had to find a good contractor" and with a good price due to my strict budget. After finding one company that damaged the main wire in the property I got left desperate and in despair. And that's when I found Marthy and his crew. They responded immediately to my request, came over, finished the job and they were extremely fast and proffesional . They knew what they are doing, the job was done safe and per our agreement. There were a few details that came up during the cut ( like beams, deeper concrete), but did not hesitate. He finished the job and did not overcharged me for the unexpected extra job. I would definitely recommend his services to anyone that needs a proffesional, experienced, licensed, insured and reasonably priced contractor. Thank you, and team, for all you have done!

"From the beginning every aspect of this service was professional and prompt. came out to take measurements and gave verbal estimate immediately" and written estimate within a day. When I decided to use his services, he immediately applied for permit with the city of Tamarac and called to tell me how long the permit application would take. reviewed the permit application on line to determine if it was approved. The day of the approval he contacted me to let me know. Within a couple days he was out to start the process. First day the excavation commenced with installation of rebar, two days later the city came out to inspect and following approval the same day, the concrete was poured and completed. Everything looks good and was completed professionally and timely. This is the first time I've used a contractor to install a concrete slab so I have no basis of comparison, however everything was completed as scheduled with no problems and I would definitely use them again.

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 Fort Lauderdale


called, scheduled an appointment for an estimate, arrived punctually, discussed the product, measured the job, and acted like a man who knew his product.
He pointed out the problems with my conception of the job, and pulled out an album with photographs of his work. My wife, ultimately chose the product and closed the ...More deal. We gave him a deposit and I expected little (after experiences with other contractors).
THE NEXT DAY he called (Friday) and said they were delivering the pavers and his crew would be there Monday to do the job. Unbelievable, but true.
Yesterday, with an early start and an 8:00 finish, they finished the deck, a pathway to the front of the house, and the front porch. It is stunning. I have never, after living a lifetime in S. Florida, met a contractor with 's enthusiasm for a contract. I can only hope that my men (elevator world) represent our company with the attitude and ability shown by Mr .
- Don W.

was great. This was the one job I was dreading. and his helper cut through my solid concrete walls to provide precise cuts for m Air conditioning system. He arrived on time, was extremely pleasant to work with most of all did a great job. It was a pleasure to work with someone who was honest, pleasant ...More and most importantly, could communicate through email and text. Full copy of his insurance was provided.
This is a very,very messy job, so a word of the wise to the homeowner - adjust your expectations. You are going to have a mess, despite all precautions to keep the work area clean. Plan on a deep cleaning the day after the job. Also, a wet saw is used for this process, so there is dust and water. It was stilll worth it!
- Abby L.

On time work, excellent quality of work - all to requested contract terms and cleaned up afterwards.
Single proprietor/worker company - small and specialized but more than just adequate.
Very knowledgeable and fine results.
Can recommend this firm with good .

I received excellent service. The time frame for my project required an almost immediate turn-around. I wanted to suprise my husband so I needed the work done prior to his return from a trip. I got exactly that. The project was completed the very next day! The quality of the work was excellent, as well as the price. The wall looks great and the ...More height is perfect. In addition, the small cement solved the additional problem of sand washing onto the walkway. Great job!
- Terry L.

They did an outstanding job. They showed up on time and got right to work. They gave me a free price quote. They were nice and polite. They were very skilled at their job. I have had no problems with this company.
- JEB S.

This company was good for the average price that they charged. They completed the job in one day. They were fast and efficient. I have no complaints with this company.

We were very pleased with the work done. They were very respective and very attentive to every problem. They were careful to explain what they were doing and why. They were conscientious about cleaning up. They went beyond what was expected.

They pressure washed my driveway so they could fill all the cracks in my drive and stairs. I think that they did a great job and I thought the price was reasonable.
