, representing
from
, was on time ... no problem there. He was open and shared his secrets" about the concrete business. He gave me tips on how to recognize concrete contractor con games. No problem with that. HOWEVER
did not have the prices on
reviews in mind, when he pitched MY quote. Explained: a. One job on the review listed a drive at 8' x 80', 6 inches of 4000 lb. concrete, fiber mesh all for $4000... ( 8'x80' ! ) MY JOB?: 10' x 36' was priced at over $4900 ! and he insisted it was a rock bottom deal... that if I wanted cheaper, he could adjust the job. He spoke to ME about 4" of concrete.... PLUS Mine you, his price was higher than anyone I had ever interviewed for the same job. b. Another customer details how
was good enough to do some landscaping in addition to the concrete drive way installation of 30' x 9'. They went the extra mile, favoring the customer's request to save certain grass areas for him. The price was $3680. MY JOB?: not only next to $5000 + but no way to honor MY request to save some of the Xoysia grass for ME while digging for the drive. I wanted would relocate it to the back yard.
self. No can do..."The machine will tear it up", he said. (or words to that effect) I guess SOME customers rate and others, NOT. PS: I stand by everything stated in this report as true, without embellishment

"The crew was prompt and courteous. The job took two days and they kept the jobsite tidy and clean. Job was completed on time. I can't say enough about the end" result. We love the work and will be hiring Mr.

Concrete Repair: How to Avoid Common Scams

Hiring the right concrete driveway contractor will help you avoid being taken advantage of.

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.

I loved working with

The work looked good in mid-October when done and we were satisfied. By spring, the biggest chip that was repaired was falling apart and needed to be repatched. I contacted them, and was advised that he didn't think I wanted to pay him to come out to repatch, and to buy some patching cement and do it myself. This company does not stand behind their work.

Job went as planned. T&L showed up on the day he said he would. Placed forms in the areas where they would pour concrete and removed all excess dirt/rock from area. They set up the rebar and suggest adding small section of concrete for our Recycle Bins. Which we did. They pour went well, even with a late start due to Miles Sand & Gravel. He understood what i wanted and what was required of the

Our sidewalk was pitched toward the house and we started to see some seepage in the basement during heavy rainfall.

and his team did an excellent job pitching the concrete away from the house and also patched up a 4ft crack on the side of the house. My neighbor informed me that they took their time and made sure the work was done right. They asked for his contact and will call him when they are ready to replace their front steps.

also leveled a portion of the garage floor and filled up a large crack with epoxy.

answered all questions I had and made some recommendations. After a couple of months I started to see a gap between the house and the newly poured concrete.
Harvey Concrete Contractors Provider Name Locked
reassured me that this is normal due to shrinkage and came back to caulk it. I cannot say enough how wonderful
Harvey Concrete Contractors Provider Name Locked
is. I recommended him to my mother-in-law to replace the walkway in front of the front steps which sunk in and caused the first step to be higher than normal. Again he did a great job. I wish there were more contractors like him.

It's hard to find a reliable concrete contractor these days, especially for a small job with so much construction going on now.

(

and his crew poured and finished a concrete pad for a

I called
Harvey Concrete Contractors Provider Name Locked
on a Sunday afternoon and he picked up immediately. After emailing a few photos and the city form to him, he replied with a quote within the hour. It was within my expectations so I just gave him the go ahead. He just proceeded to get it done from there. Got the city permits (which were another $180 on top of the fees to
Harvey Concrete Contractors Provider Name Locked
) for the sidewalk and parking. I guess the city imposes a 2 week wait after that for some reason but several days before the work, he had the no parking signs up. Job was done in half a day. He came back the next day when dry and checked on it. There was 1 corner of a tile which he did separately and patched another area not in the original remit at my request. Very seamless, painless process for me.Was always very responsive on email (within an hour).

I was exceptionally pleased with the work done by
Harvey Concrete Contractors Provider Name Locked
and his staff. Pat kept me informed of the progress and followed up to make sure I was pleased with the work performed. Everything was picked up and the area cleaned. My concern was the metal/glass enclosure would not fit back property, but it looks seamless as if never removed.

. responded quickly to our phone calls and texts. He came out immediately to give us a quote and began work quickly. He and his crew were courteous and efficient and they did EXCELLENT work!! We would definitely recommend them and use them again when we are ready to have the sidewalk at the side of the house (we live on a corner so we have A LOT of sidewalk) and driveway redone. Two of our neighbors had their sidewalks redone by
Harvey Concrete Contractors Provider Name Locked
. and one also had him back to do their driveway a year later. The work was done so well and looks so nice that we decided to have him do ours as well. They did not mess up our lawn or anything else in the process of the work and what little grass and dirt had to be reomoved and put back was done so neatly that we are VERY pleased!!
