Recent Review: Fidurko Brothers’ Construction was contracted in July 2017. I worked with Brian Fidurko. There were several issues with quality/workmanship, but the major items were: - Failed to put down an adequate subbase, which resulted in poor drainage under the concrete (leading to excessive heaving) and very inconsistent concrete thicknesses. I found 2-1/2” thick sidewalk concrete where it should have been 4”, and areas of the driveway with 3” thick concrete where we had agreed upon 6”. - Did not pin his concrete pads together, so pads could float/heave independently which created a 2" step height difference during winter. (see photo w/yellow level and measuring tape) In addition to a trip hazard, I could not plow the driveway without risking damage to concrete. - Trip hazards due to mismatched heights of concrete pads at multiple locations. (as poured, prior to winter heaving- see pic and note expansion joint caulk for confirmation) - Refused to use rebar. (He referred to it as ‘foreign material’) - Poured concrete directly against my garage floor concrete (no expansion joint) which cracked/chipped the entire garage foundation after winter heaving. (see pic) - Concrete pads were pillow-shaped instead of being flat, creating valleys where they met and pitching/directing water towards my neighbor’s garage. Not only did this create friction between me and my neighbor, it also was a code violation. The finish quality was extremely poor with (3) different shades of gray concrete, dips/bumps and very poor edging. I've attached as many pics as this site would allow, but would be glad to share more if possible. After 11 months of asking contractor to put his plans in writing on how he planned to correct the issues, I gave them an ultimatum. Contractor failed to provide a corrective action plan, so I hired another contractor to make the repairs. (which resulted in complete removal/reinstallation, and cost me over $10K) Contractor and I then went to small claims court, and I was awarded $5,005, the maximum amount allowed in small claims. (Note that Fidurko tried to counter-sue me for the remaining balance, but the claim was dismissed) Since the court ruling, contractor has not made any contact or payment for what is owed to me.
