Recent Review: Luis and his team were friendly and knowledgeable. They did very excellent work and really took pride in their work. Each member of the team was very friendly and cooperative. The sidewalk was beveled properly and finished very meticulously. I would definitely use Designer's Concrete again.
Recent Review: When we decided to investigate the possibility of updating our front entrance, we identified 3 concrete contractors and 3 hard scape contractors for bids. We were on a fast time line to get the work completed to minimize the impact on the landscaping. A&H Construction was one of the contractors contacted for an estimate. He responded promptly and courteously with a competitive bid. Upon receiving all the bids, we selected A&H since their bid was less than another one we considered. In addition, we looked at some of their projects that involved washed/exposed pea gravel surface and liked what we saw. We would recommend A&H Construction to anyone based on their prompt and courteous bid response, for the project quality and for their excellent working relationship. They were very easy to work with. We also used A&H to replace our back patio 8 years ago and we were very happy with the quality of the work performed and with the excellent working relationship.

Recent Review: erez Concrete Service was very professional, punctual, and get me updated on the progress of the project. They did not have to break up any older concrete, there was no concrete as this was part of a whole backyard rebuild. Staged the concrete job and verified with me several times on the little details, such as any curves which was appreciated. Concrete looks very professional and looks much better than another concrete job that I had completed a year ago. My only complaint would be that I had to pay for what I believe was the companies permit to work in the village I live (on top of the normal permits that are required). I felt as though this should not have been my responsibility. However, despite this small issue, I am very satisfied with the quality of work that was performed and would recommend them to anyone. I would also look to them first for any other projects that may come up in the future
Recent Review: The work was performed in a timely manner. The problem was located and corrected. The workers were neat and cleaned up after themselves. All my questions were answered. A professional job well done.

uality of work appears good but advice regarding how to solve a drainage problem was not provided and work provided did not entirely solve the problem. The supervisor was very difficult to communicate with and had an attitude problem whenever I asked him a question or asked for advice regarding issues with the work. Workers did not speak English so I was not able to communicate with them. After working four hours the first day and indicating they would return the next morning, no one showed up. When I called the office late in the morning to inquire they told me the crew would be there in the afternoon but they never showed. The next day they arrived and indicated that at the end of the day they would be pouring cement. This never occurred so the area to be cemented was left framed over the Halloween weekend. I felt this was a safety risk as small children would be running by the house Halloween night. Workers left at the end of the day without communicating to me what would occur next. When I called the office they said it was too late to pour concrete despite telling me in the morning when they arrived it would be poured at the end of the day.

The project went very well. I called for an estimate. He was prompt, easy to talk with and accommodating about the demolition portion of the project. He was the contractor I felt most comfortable using and his estimate was surprisingly the lowest. I got several bids. The project involved demolishing an old wooden floor in basement above another wood floor that was above dirt and poured a concrete floor.

Everything went well. They weeded the area before pouring the concrete, and it has withstood multiple bouts of rainfall.

Very well. Tyrone was very professional and his price was competitive. Based on my experience, I believe Tyrone can be trusted to do what is right for the customer and would suggest using him over the competition. Tyrone was excellent at being prompt and communicating, where others I spoke with had very poor follow up. Not to mention, he did an outstanding job, sealing my stamped concrete driveway.

The job went very well overall. Selvin provided a quote very quickly and the work was scheduled and completed within the requested timeframe. The final product looks outstanding and Selvin's team did a very good job of cleaning up the site afterwards.

When they came out they were prompt with getting the work done. They had to get an approval of where the concrete was going to be poured and after that the work was completed quickly. They did a good job and finished the job in one day.

I solicited bids from 4 contractors for this project. Though Jose's bid wasn't the lowest, I felt that he was going to provide the best value for the dollar. The project started about 3 weeks ago. Jose and a member of his crew came out with an excavator and removed soil from a patch behind my house. That same day, they built forms for pouring footings for the 30" tall retaining wall. The following day they poured concrete. Several days later they returned to remove the footing forms and build forms for the retaining wall. (There were several days that passed between each step in the process--Jose was constantly interrupted by rain, high temps and/or personnel issues.) They next poured concrete for the retaining wall. After that set, they removed those forms, back-filled soil into the space bounded by the retaining wall, and topped it off with 8" of garden top soil. Finally, they returned to prepare, pour and finish the sidewalk repair and deck pad. I'm working on a gut rehab home and have had a dozen different professionals working on my home. Jose counts among the most attentive, detail-oriented and conscientious. Though several of the contractors I spoke with tried to talk me out of pouring the concrete wall, instead Jose showed me how he could do the job in a way that would be strong and attractive. I'm delighted with both the results and Jose's skills. If hiring Jose, be prepared to work a little harder to communicate with him--Spanish is his first language and details need to be repeated several times for thorough understanding. In addition, he has a tendency to state an arrival day and/or time and then not arrive until later. Neither of these issues were deal-breakers--I would without hesitation recommend him for any concrete work at your home.

Wonderful job. They took care of coordinating with a plumbing contractor that was working in our courtyard the week before and needed to return to finalize things once the concrete was poured Transformed our courtyard which had been a disaster of broken concrete.
