Concrete Driveways reviews in Oak Park

    Above & Beyond Construction
    Chester and his crew built an addition to our home which included a bedroom and an ada spec bathroom and they were great. I am disabled and he constantly went the extra mile to make sure what they were doing at each step of the project would work for me. Quality work, first class all the way. The best experience I have ever had with a contractor.

    Regency Garages
    I wish Regency built more than just garages - they're such a pleasure to work with - honest, good pricing, good communication. The tore down our original, dilapidated two-car and built us a new three-car garage. Terry took the time to sit down and go through all of our needs for the initial quote, and because of her knowledge and long experience in Oak Park (and with it's codes), was able to save us thousands on the garage foundation. Communication was a little light during permitting, but once they began construction, the pace really sped up - construction was timely and quick, they kept me apprised of upcoming work, showed up when they said they would, and worked fast. The quality of the finished garage is fantastic. A few change orders (some due to my late requests - different gutter configuration, sub-panel) were reasonably scoped and priced; for a few smaller items (e.g., saw-cutting for a door-sill to seat down in the top of the foundation wall) they didn't even charge us. When it came time for the building inspection, everything passed easily, and as he was leaving, the building inspector said something to the effect of, "This is a nice garage - we see a lot of these guys - Regency does really good work." I suppose he'd know! There are only 2-3 other garage companies in the Chicagoland area that could handle a custom garage like ours - we had initially met with them all, but so glad that we wound up going with Regency.

    Bald Eagle Construction
    Started poorly...I took off work and they had the wrong day in their calendar. It happens. They came right over. From there it went downhill. Felt Kevin was adversarial from the start. We currently have brick on a portion of driveway..."we don't do brick" he said...no sweat, we're taking out the brick for concrete. Next he walked my driveway telling me what terrible condition its in. He tells me I need to figure out how to handle water drainage...again, he's the contractor and he wants ME to figure out how to get water off my driveway. Offered essentially no assistance and told me to call him back once I had the water problem figured out....Kevin, don't hold your breath. For someone with such great reviews I was astounded.

    De Hoyos Concrete
    Poor communication and poor job done. They also are very demanding on receiving payment (even before a proper inspection is completed) and they do not return phone calls if there is an issue that needs to be attended to. DO NOT USE THEM.

    Bald Eagle Construction
    Bald Eagle came right out for an estimate and explained what they would do in great detail and answered all my questions. I received an estimate a day or two later and after getting other estimates, I  knew I would be hiring Bald Eagle Construction. Communication via phone and email was great and I always knew the next step and what I needed to provide. The work began promptly and I am very happy with the result. I will use Bald Eagle again in the future for construction projects.

    Bald Eagle Construction
    While I grade this as a "C", I would hope that the average contractor would do better. I did not hire by price, since Bald Eagle was one of the more expensive bids, so this should not be interpreted as you get what you pay for. Pros: 1. Punctual. 2. Polite. Cons: 1. I live in Oak park and the concrete arrived from Joliet. Thus, it was not "fresh" by the time it arrived and water had to be added, which is the last thing you want to do. With so many concrete yards near Oak Park, I cannot understand why Joliet was the source. I hope the concrete stands up over time but it was not poured under optimal conditions. 2. I wanted and they said they would provide a smooth finish on the garage floor. The finish is anything but smooth. 3. They left a mess. They dumped waste water on our roses, deposited a thick slurry in the street gutter which I had to shovel out, left concrete spatters and even a concrete handprint on our garage walls, and concrete "droppings" all over the driveway.

    DeVega Concrete LLC
    The concrete poured by De Vega did not last 1 year before it began to deteriorate and spall.  Based on my professional opinion  I don't think this company knows how to pour and finish exterior concrete.   When the poor condition of the concrete was brought to the owner (Fidel's) attention he basically blamed me for parking on the concrete over the winter.  Please keep in mind that the concrete was poured in early spring, and had all summer to set before seeing any winter conditions.  Fidel also pointed to the fact that we did not install an optional  special concrete sealer.   

    Here's the thing I am a licensed civil engineer who works on roadway construction.  I oversee construction of  concrete pavement on a daily basis, and if concrete is poured correctly and finished correctly within the correct temperatures it does not spall when exposed to deicing chemicals.  There is no need for  special sealer unless the concrete is poured in October or later.  When I brought this to Fidel's attention, he had the concrete plant write me letter again blaming salt from my vehicle.  I received copies of the mix tickets and was able to confirm the concrete used was a DOT approved mix, so that means the problem was in the workmanship.  Fidel also admitted that due to previous problems he had, the concrete plant had to explain to him that he was using the wrong concrete finishing tools, so he changed his float and now had the right tool.  Too bad I found this out after the fact because it is a huge red flag.  Fidel attempted to fix the problem with some surface patching so now I have concrete that looks like the side of a dairy cow.  Even worse the concrete continues to spall, so its a dairy cow with leprosy.  Fidel freely admitted that he had many problem (at least 12 complaints) with his concrete pours from the past season and now would require owners to sign a waiver if they did not select the sealer in the future.  My recommendation is skip the sealer and find a contractor who knows what he is doing. Unfortunately if you look closely at DeVega's proposal he waives responsibility for defects in the mix delivered.  He will hide behind this clause not to correct his poor workmanship.   It speaks volumes that HE IS LOOKING FOR OTHER TO BLAME FOR POOR WORK even on the contract you sign.

    A tidbit of my correspondence with him including references from the Portland Cement Association:
     
    My opinion is that I received a deficient final product.  This deficiency was result of improper finishing, curing, or job site modification of the mix.  The deficiency was not a result of the supplied mix.  I will grant you that salt exacerbated the problem, but it is not the root cause it was only the trigger.  Concrete should have excellent resistance to deicing chemicals when installed properly (PCA ISI177).   The insinuation that I as the customer am at fault for not providing an optional sealant or for parking my car on the parking pad is really a poor business practice on your part.  Pardon the pun but it is like rubbing salt in the wound.
    Among the Portland Cement Association references that I base my professional opinion on:
    PCA ISI177 Concrete Slab surface Defects: Causes , Prevention, and repair
    "Upon freezing in a saturated condition, weakened mortar layers break away from the aggregate" - Note freezing is the catalyst for the damage, not the cause
    "Poor finishing can aggravate mortar flaking""Experience and extensive labratory testing have shown........ concrete will have excellent resistance to surface scaling and mortar flaking due to freezing and thawing and the application of deicer chemicals provided the concrete is properly proportioned, placed, finished and cured"  - We know the state approved mix portioned correctly, that only leaves the De Vega's works as the possible cause.
    "Popouts Causes - do not finish concrete with bleed water on the surface" - also spoke to a materials engineer for an outside opinion and he confirmed adding water to the mix will create excessive bleed water.

    PCA Design and Control of Concrete Mixtures
    "Principal causes of surface defects is finishing while bleed water is on the surface""Sealing exterior concrete is an optional procedure""Satisfactory performance of exterior concrete still primarily depends on...proper placing, finishing, and curing techniques"

    This is a follow-up to my initial review posted on 6/16/14.  DO NOT LET THIS COMPANY INSTALL YOUR CONCRETE.
    Fidel Vega does not back his work, so find someone who does!! De Vega Concrete installed my new driveway at a cost of $7,414 and the surface began deteriorating within just a few months.  He will claim that it is from winter and salt but rest assured there is no way a single winter can cause the surface deterioration that I have experienced across this expensive driveway.
    He did come out (after months of tracking him down) and patched the major areas but the driveway keeps deteriorating each month so it must be replaced. 
    Apparently his "contract" will release him of any liability or responsiblity, since I just took him to court and he won (After 2 years of trying to get resolution he has himself covered with his Terms & Conditions so BEWARE OF THIS CONTRACTOR).
    WORST JOB EVER, AND NO SUPPORT FOR SHODDY WORK!!!  STAY AWAY OR YOU WILL BE SORRY TOO!!

    I thought the project went very well. Fidel made several revisions to has proposal as I modified the scope. I got the permits which I believe saved me both time and money and I really appreciated his recommendation to put in the 3 down spout extensions. The work was done professionally al the way through and the only inspection I needed to be present for was the apron because it is in the public way. The concrete pours on both days went well and the concrete looked great.
    A couple days later I noticed that the garage door would not open. I checked and there was power going out from the house to the garage but there was no power in the garage. Fidel agreed to send someone out the repair  the line if they could find the break. I suggested that he could consider simply trenching to the garage instead of locating the break if that was simper and I would run new conduit. SInce there did not appear to be any uncertainty in simply trenching to the garage Fidel had his guys do that even though it ended up being much more work than expected due to the vast number of roots from an old elm that had been cut down the year before. 
    More than a year latter it looks great and there are no cracks. I am very happy with the way this project went.

    CARRERA CONCRETE CONSTRUCTION
    Due to the worker's union strike the start day of my driveway was up in the air.  Eventually Carrera Concrete came out to remove the existing driveway, prep the driveway and pour the new driveway.  To my suprise they said this could be done all in one day.  Approximately 5 months after the install I noticed a crack that ran down the majority of my driveway.  The cracks went across the control joints and went through the entire 5" of concrete for 85 feet.  I contacted Carrera immediately (in December) to resolve the issue and was informed they would come out when the weather was warmer.  I contacted them in the Spring time and Jose (the owner and installer) came out and inspected the crack.  He told me that it was just a "surface crack" and that he'd cut and seal the crack with an epoxy and did a test area of about 8" to show me what it would look like.  The job was unsightly and obviously didn't address the root problem that is causing the crack.   I have tried multiple times to contact Jose to resolve the issue but he is not answering my calls or returning my messages.  Jose Carrera is not to be trusted and is not a man of his word.  He guaranteed the driveway for 1 year and I have cracks running down 85 feet of my driveway.  I have external industry professionals come out and review the driveway and all of them have said this is not what should happen and there is definitely something wrong with the job.  They all mentioned that the "cut and seal" solution that Jose suggested would not be the action that they'd pursue since the job was obviously flawed.
