"They were not able to level the driveway as what they quoted. In the process of trying to do so they cracked the driveway in a few places. They also leaked hydraulic" fluid all over my driveway. When I brought up my concern, the owner was supposed to call me back and never did so.

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.

Is the wall that the garage is sloped toward and adjacent wall of the home?

 

If not, it should not be of real concern. 

 

Try to keep the water out of the garage with a gasket on the door.

This was an amazing experience all around! was responsive in all areas. They arrived promptly and within 2 hours the job was complete. My driveway had four slabs at the bottom that had heaved drastically over the years. For the first time in the 14 years that I have owned my home, the driveway is completely level!! They also ...More leveled other slabs that had minor heaving. I had an approximately 3" dip between driveway and garage approach. It is now down to an 1"!! This company and its employees were professional, courteous, and experienced. This is the best my driveway has ever looked. Sure glad that the "other" concrete leveling company never got back with me. There loss was my gain with this company. Highly recommend . Thanks and crew!

From the initial estimate to the finished job, everyone was great. Randazo (installation) did a fabulous job. He was very efficient, explained all of the possible outcomes well, and worked really hard to get everything back to the original level it was before. My drive way had about a 3"-4" drop below the garage and ...More he got it level. He also did extra work to make sure the everything was level on my back patio. There was a little gap still left on the back that explained why the concrete wasn't lifting any more and how we could fill it in. He was extremely personable and friendly.

I'm not sure where these contractor get these prices from, clearly they pay themselves as much as they wish, judging from the verbal quote for one concrete step for over $800. I can't imagine how much they may overcharge on other projects.

very prompt with coming out for bid. Bid was very reasonable and a pleasant surprise vs. other option of having concrete redone to level it out. and came and did job when scheduled. Results were awesome and I was very surprised how great the results were. There were some very ...More severe areas where slabs had sunk and they were leveled as if they were just poured. Good communication before and after by phone and email. Also received a bid to seal some of the big seams but the sealing is temperature dependent to cure and may or may not be able to be done now. If I have to wait till spring I will use Precision for that and any future needs

, the owner, was extremely thorough, clean, on time, on point, and a pleasure to work with. I have dealt with many contractors that never show up or call. was on time, only took 1 day, and didn't have any charges. I honestly wish he was more of a general contractor because ...More I would give him all the work I need done.
If you need anything done to your foundation, call . I couldn't be more pleased.

They were on time and had great communication. The work was performed correctly and was less expensive than having the concrete work completely redone.

THe sections of our driveway were very much out of alignment. A large tree apparently contributed quite a bit to lifting one section, and others may have just shifted/dropped due to settling.
The folks from Crackerjack did a great job and even cleaned up nicely after. While the driveway certainly doesn't look new (lots of cracks where ...More sections had broken over the years) at least we can now drive on it and not feel like we're driving over curbs etc.
I also appreciate the two year warranty that they have extended in case it somehow manages to settle again. Seems unlikely but good to know we can call them back if needed.

The crew arrived and worked hard for about 3 hours. The finished result was stunning. The sidewalk was completely leveled and the surrounding lawn was put back together.
I would highly recommend their services.
