Concrete Repair reviews in Edwardsville

    Yates Complete Concrete
    There was some miscommunication and he didn't show up when I expected. However, he was very apologetic, rescheduled, and everything went smoothly from there. The quality of the work was good. In fact, later on I hired someone to make some railings for the stairs, and that person specifically commented on how well made the stairs were.

    Due to a wet spring, we were working against time restraint to have yard if our new construction home backfilled, graded, sod and seeded within allowable community timeframe.    Prior to landscaping, he also agreed to have a concrete patio poured for our walkout basement.  Wade said he could get it done and would start right away.
     His first estimate was more than we had budgeted and so he agreed to scale back volume of work but not quality.
    The concrete work went relatively well. Soil was to be compacted but didn't see or hear a compactor.  Wade said they hand compacted it though. Only enough rebar was used that one could barely say rebar was used.  During pouring of concrete, I had to request that rebar be lifted off the soil bottom when I noticed rebar of earlier pours not being lifted.  Didn't see the fiber reinforcement mesh as written in contract.  The surface of the concrete landing from deck stairs is cup shaped and holds water rather than draining.  Not a good place for a bird bath.  Also, some of the sidewalk portion they poured drains toward the house rather than out the back as expected. 
    Wade elected to hire a subcontractor for BackFill and grading.  Wade had no one there to dig the trench for laying drain tile as per agreement.  I did it by hand in order to stay ahead of the excavator.  Wade did give small allowence for my labor on that.    I explained that there were previously several driveways of gravel buried under the soil surface.  The excavator said his machine would "work" stones and gravel to the side Where they could be removed from the yard. In order to allow the soil to crust over,the excavator said he would be back next day to do final grading .  He didn't return for another week.  At that point the clay soil was brick hard.
    The contract agreed to  "Prep soil with soil conditioner (not capitalized) in preparation for seed and straw".  I assumed that soil conditioner meant applying some amendment such as mulch to be worked into soil.  This, I assumed, in addition to the rock removal.  I assumed incorrectly.  I later discovered that, when Capitalized, "Soil Conditioner" is a Bobcat brand name of machine that roughs up the soil and is cabable of windrowing rocks to the side where they can be removed from the property.  This windrowing never happened on my job and there was no other soil amendment other than fertilizer. This may be a result of letting soil get brick hard before returning. Don't know.
    I sensed that Wade's laborers had never laid sod before.  Sod squares had many gaps between them as well as many overlapping squares.   The gaps would allowed weed seed to germinate and overlapping of squares, besides leaving humps, would prevent full root contact with soil.  Also, they did not "cut in" the sod where it met the neighbor's lawn.  Rather, there were staggard pieces of sod laid on top of existing soil.  Also, my back and side yards are steep which required sod for erosion prevention rather than seeding. These squares should have been pinned unil roots take hold to prevent them from sliding down hill, especially when watering and possible creatures walking on them. They were not pinned.   Grass in a number of sod squares just died. Surrounding squares survived. Can't explain that.  Due to these issues, CrabGrass has taken over much of my new sod.
    Seeding of front yard and front sides didn't go much better.  I did my part in keeping it watered. Gravel not removed from soil.  Some grass so thick that chocked on itself.  Other parts of yard no grass germinated.  Fertilizer apparently not broadcast evenly. Some dark green, some yellow and a lot of it ended being full of crabgrass everywhere that fescue did not germinate.
    Before Wade left the site, I told him I was not happy.  Wade made no offer to fix it.  It was dark by that time so I didn't know how unhappy until next day and actually following weeks. 

                                  Update !!!!!!!:
    Today, 9/3/2015,  Wade stopped by to discuss above issues.  It was agreed that he would return this coming fall to resolve what can be resolved within reason.  I'm having some seawall work done as well this fall and perhaps the two contractors can coordinate or cooperate on some common ground parts.

    We were presented with a detailed proposal on what work would be done and the cost.  Once we accepted the proposal is was a little while before the work was started, but that had been discussed and expected.  Wade and his crew did a wonderful job.  The new retaining wall and stamped concrete patio are beautiful.  They also built a small deck which turned out great.  The only problem was that the work was started late fall of 2014 and due to the unpredictable weather the patio needed to be re-cleaned and resealed again early this spring. 
    Although it was not in the plans, Wade told us that if we needed help with planting he would take care of it.  As promised, they came out and planted a few bushes for us around the patio, which didn't take his crew long, but was very helpful to us.  We really didn't know what we wanted to do with the space, so had not initially contracted for any landscaping to be done.  Wade worked with us closely on every aspect of the job from moving a small fountain for me to installing the lighting around the patio.  The new fire pit is perfectly placed, exactly what we wanted.
    Wade was always available, we didn't play phone tag as he answered his phone whenever I called.  If he wasn't on site every day he would come by to make sure the work had been done.  He and his crew cleaned up each day and he continually kept us informed about what was going on.  The only problems we encountered were caused by the weather. not cooperating. 
    I would definitely contract with RCD Rives Cotracting Design again and highly recommend them.

    It took some time for us to actually schedule the project start date.  In some cases I would negatively rate this type of delay, however, in this case it is demonstrative of Dale's (Owner of Cochran's Concrete) attention to detail and "do it right the first time" approach to projects.  
    Dale and his crew arrived timely each day - the project took about 3 days, and left the site relatively clean and picked up at the close of each work day.  
    Dale selected quality materials and I was very happy with the workmanship of his crew.  Dale was onsite most of the time ensuring that the work and project was meeting expectations.  As with most construction projects we ran into a couple unexpected hurdles but Dale was fair and timely in getting those items fixed/corrected.  
    I will update this post after a few months to advise water-tightness and to comment on how quality of work has held up.

    Mark's Commercial and Residential Work Services
    Great experience in the store. No up-selling. Listened to our needs, and helped us find the right product in our price range. Set up delivery and called before coming. They worked with husband's work schedule to arrive at the right time and not make him wait. Very careful bringing appliance into home - careful to not hit walls/furniture. Setup everything, gave an overview of the product and thanked us for buying from them.

    RCD Rives Contracting Design
    They did a good job, and worked with us at the level of design and budget we wanted.  HOWEVER, RCD started work months after we expected them to. I realize that landscaping is weather dependent and they had other contracts ahead of ours. But they started much later than expected. We contracted with them in August, and it was November (well after the first frost) before they began. The project took much longer than expected, due to having to wait for weather to warm up in order to do concrete work, etc. The property was out of order for weeks as a result.
    SUMMARY: good work, as asked, very flexible, nice, but not reliable on scheduling. Would use again with the awareness that scheduling is utterly undependable. It may be that people who are reliable on scheduling don't accommodate weather-related issues and so do shoddy work. If so, would rather have good work off schedule than weaker work on schedule. That said, I'd rather have good work on schedule.

    The crew showed up on time and work was done in a timely matter.  Verbal bid included flashing chimney but they only put more tar on it. He took off $200 after several calls in which he was more than IRATE but cost me $300 to have it done by roofer.  Be sure to get bid in writing.  Have referred business to him I just hope no confrontation takes place.

    We had a lot of weather delays but we had good communication during that time. The job was done in a good time frame when the weather broke. It was done in a timely matter and very professional way. I would hire them again to do anymore of my concert work .

    C & H Grading & Excavating Inc
    They are located in Collinsville. They did a great job. The owner's name is Brad. I don't even know his last name. He is a friend of my son. He does excellent work. He did the back part and he graded it and leveled it all out. We live in an older home. There is a little stoop and a stairway when we come out the back door and he put a little porch on it, so that there is a little bit more space to get in and out the door. He threw out all the old and planted all new bushes and shrubs, put new rock in, and did the little stairs and the little porch. He was great. They were good. I would use them again if I had the money.

    Reed concrete consulted with me on how the job should be done and he pointed out some mistakes made by the builder. Their attention to detail is great.
