Concrete Driveway Installation reviews in Homestead

    It was a horrific experience. Barry Holsman who was my initial contact this project he���s a fast talking lying individual. He told me the project would take 2 maybe 3 days max from start to finish so far the project isn���t completed after two weeks. I also finance the project and he wouldn���t start the project until I sign a document and call the bank and tell them the project was completed. All of this after I gave him a thousand dollars down. Once the excavation started and the started lining off the project he left a 2 to 3 feet border from my fence. When I told him that wasn���t satisfactory he tried telling it���s the area I live in I went online and found Miami-Dade policy and sent him he tried to convince me that my city was not in Miami-Dade. I demanded my money back and that���s when he decided to close the gap to 6 inches which was fine for me. During this time he told my wife that I told him to throw away the pavers I had down outside my back door, when she didn���t agree he texted me at work and asked me if why do I want pavers that was old and dirty, I told him I wanted them because I paid for them and the pavers weren���t dirty nor old, he didn���t like that answer but ultimately he did as I wish. This project started on the 13th of August 2018 and it���s still not completed. What ever you do, do not hire this man for any project. You���ll regret it based on my experience

    The salesman (Barry) at JDP Construction seems like a nice guy at first. He will show up to your house and claim that he's an expert in stamped concrete as evidenced by his age and education in how to lay concrete (sense my sarcasm). JDP Construction is only the middleman, or the contractor. They quote a ridiculous price ($7,800) and see if you'll bite. The dimensions of our patio were fairly large, but the material cost came out to be about $1,000 total. It was one truck of concrete (that's $350) and about 3 workers who came over to do the job. I was able to negotiate a price and get the job down to $6,000. I knew that I was still overpaying, but Barry continually assured me that the job will be "Just perfect, Matt. It will be perfect." So I justified spending the $6,000 and put blind faith in this old man. 

    The job was continually delayed and delayed. Finally, they came out on a Saturday to rip out all of the sod. In order to access my backyard, they had to remove my brand new fence door (just installed about 2 months ago). They ripped out the post, ripped the door down and broke it in the process. As they took the Bobcat in the back yard, the tires rubbed the side of the house and fence -- leaving black streaks for me to clean up afterwards. 

    The men worked rather quickly to get the concrete laid. They were sub-contractors. I believe it was American Stamp Concrete who actually did the work. The problem is that they didn't let the cement cure long enough before stamping it. Within 2 days after the concrete was laid, cracks started appearing everything!!!! This is called "crusting" and Barry explained that it's completely normal for this to occur, but after my own research and looking at other jobs -- it's not normal. It's negligence on behalf of the contractor doing the work. Needless to say, the "crusting' has resulted in numerous chips and degradiation of the patio in a very short time! I explained this to Barry and he shrugged it off. In fact, the man asked for final payment BEFORE the fence was even put back into place. He wanted to leave the doors to the fence on the ground and the new posts completely unstained.

    I told Barry that this was absolutely UNACCEPTABLE and with an attitude he agreed to put the fence door back up and stain. Barry claimed that he paid $50.00 for the gallon of stain and was nice enough to leave it with us after they finished the staining. The problem is that when they put the doors of the fence back up, they screwed up and there is a HUGE gap. I contacted him about it, but their has been no response from the company (go figure!). 

    Honestly, I would never do business with Barry or JDP again in my life. Barry even lied about the $50.00 gallon of stain. I went to Home Depot today and picked up another gallon of stain. Mind you, the same exact brand (Behr) and it was $32.00. My fiance and I are beside ourselves as to why someone would feel a need to tell us they just paid $50.00 for the gallon of stain, all the while giving us attitude and doing everything possible to rob us of the final payment before we approved the job.

    Overall quality is low for the price paid to JDP Construction. Look elsewhere people. And don't fall for Barry's salesman like attitude. He's rude, inconsiderate, and will do anything to make the sale. He's not an ethical business man in my opinion and I would never do business with JDP Construction again after this experience.

    The salesman collected 40% of the $5,900.00 estimate and obtained a permit from the county the next day. Work commenced a week later and was finished in two days. On the first day, laborers showed up with a milling machine, a front end loader, hand tools and a dump truck. One of the workers delivered the permit to the site. The name of the company on the permit is different than the name of the company I contracted with. THE NAME OF THE COMPANY ON THE PERMIT IS: NIEBLAS and SONS PAVING-NOT RODWIN'S PAVING. NONE of them spoke a word of English, or if they did, they did not let on that they did. The result of this issue is that communications regarding issues or questions about what they were doing were impossible.
    The following day, as asphalt was being applied and the elevation changes I had requested when contracting for the job were not being made, I called the salesman, who is the son-in-law of the owner Nieblas Y Sons, in an attempt to get the corrections made. The driveway was hot mopped and a new surface applied, rolled and compacted. The depth of asphalt varied considerably around the edges and at the rebuilt end of the driveway . It was thinner than should be. Additionally, the asphalt mix did not appear to be uniform or properly mixed. A substantial part of the driveway was grey to white where the aggregate was uneven in size and not properly covered with asphalt. When it was compacted, the aggregate showed above the tar. In other sections of the driveway, the workers applied shovel fulls of asphalt mix to uneven portions of the surface and used a torch and shovel to fill in the depressions. This gave the driveway a spotty appearance and rough where the aggregate appeared to be above the asphalt base and not smooth and even colored as a fresh rolled asphalt surface should look.
    The third day, the salesman called to schedule an appointment to come by and pick up the final check. I said I would like him to come by, but there were issues with the job. He arrived on the third day with the owner of Nieblas and Sons and looked over the job. They would not agree to the quality of the job, despite my protestations that the driveway entrances were still below grade in the right of way, which was a specific requirement- water pools in the drive way making it problematic to open gates at the entrance and egress. The discoloration was attributed to the roller/compactor and quot;picking up dirt from the street and rolling back on the fresh surfaceand quot; I pointed out that end of the drive was not reconstructed and the abbutting roadway is asphalt. There is also a sprinkler on the roller to clean it as the asphalt is being applied. The owner did not feel there was a problem with the shovel and asphalt work and both the salesman and owner said the asphalt would eventually age to turn an even gray with sufficient traffic. There are only 2 cars using the driveway and infrequently at that. The edges of the driveway are too thinly applied and not smooth.
    I was not happy with the overall job and very unhappy about the appearance of the driveway. The salesman and owner conferred privately and offered to apply a seal coat finish in about 2 months at no charge so it would look better. They did not seem to be interested in fixing the asphalt depth, edges or the entrance or exit elevations.
    I paid them for the job with the written agreement to provide the sealcoat finish in the future. As I handed over the check, I was able to point out that the asphalt at the gates was so thin that it cracked and pulled up while drilling a 1/2and quot; hole to install a piece of pipe in the surface to hold the gate peg in the center of the double gates. There was no rebuttal to the issue. I am waiting for the sealcoat to see what is next.

    He was very knowledgeable and had a portfolio of prior work that he had done. He knew what I wanted when I talked to him. He didn't require money upfront and he was here when he said that he was going to be here. It took 2 days to do the work. The price was 15-20 percent more than asphalt.

    Danilo came out and had his insurance and license information available for me. He was very professional and presented well. He was on time and very informative and answered all of my questions. It was a sincere pleasure meeting with him. His pricing was comparable with other companies, however I was able to find someone else that came in about a thousand less than his quote and with very good references.

    William Concrete were pretty good. We ended up not doing a portion of the driveway that was in the original plans but they didn't reduce our prices or anything. All in all, they weren't bad.
