Concrete Repair reviews in Hamel

    We had an old patio slab removed and replaced. The patio itself looks good and we have no reason to question the quality of the work at this point. However, there were some issues with the process that we think could be helpful to others. They came to our house before the project to give us an estimate, so they saw the distance from our back driveway to the patio, and we also told them before the project began that we had an underground sprinkler system and that other vendors had driven on our lawn over boards that they provided to protect the sprinkler heads. However, when The Original Driveway Design workers did the work on our patio they used sledgehammers and saws to take out our old patio by hand. We later leaned from their supervisor that they did this because they did not have enough boards with them to get their heavy equipment to the patio site. It was a lot of extra work for the crew, they worked extremely award, and we do appreciate their hard work. But, we just had our house painted (the painters were actually still on-site when the patio work was performed), and the saws threw a tremendous amount of fine concrete dust all over the back of our house and our second story deck and deck furniture which was 20 or more feet from the patio. We found out later when having our windows cleaned that they also got actual concrete, not just dust, on the sliding glass doors by the patio, which had to be scraped off to clean the windows. The contract specifies that the homeowner is responsible for restoration (which for us meant buying dirt to fill in the 4-8 inch gap between the new slab and the lawn when the forms were removed), but they are responsible for cleaning the site, which should include cleaning up the concrete dust they created. When we asked about the concrete dust, we were told that we had to spray down all the dusty areas ourselves after the concrete cured. Although we did not like that answer, we are getting our house ready to sell so we followed their instructions, but the concrete dust is still visible. In our view, they are the experts and should have planned better for the job--either bring the boards you need to get to the site with your equipment, or if you choose to go the manual route, have a much better plan to minimize and clean up the dust. At a minimum, they should have warned us about the dust issue and let us decide how we wanted to handle it. We would also recommend asking about the timeline. We wish they would have communicated better about the timing of the job. They started our job on a Thursday, but did not finish. No one showed up the next day. We had not been told what was going on, so we called and eventually were told that the job would be finished on Saturday. It would have been nice to have had better communication on that. In fairness, they did stick to their original quote even though they found the job was more difficult than they initially anticipated.

    Shelly from Earth Wizards came out to give an estimate on replacing a sidewalk and patio for us, and replacing an asphalt driveway. 
    We had 3 companies give estimates on each of the jobs...........I would say Shelly by far was the most thorough in explaining what was needed, and in doing things the right way without cutting corners.  Unfortunately, the pricing was not as close to the other estimates as I would have liked, and we ended up going with another company.  Because we may possibly move in the next few years, we were trying to get a decent job done, but at the best price possible.  However - if this were our "forever home", I think we would have paid the extra and had her do the work, she really knows her stuff.

    John at Concrete Builders was great to work with, I'd recommend him without hesitation!
    We had 3 companies give estimates on the replacement work we needed done, all by companies rated highly on Angies list.  John's estimate was not the lowest of the three, but he offered to match it since they were close.  My reason for going with him was that the guy is just so darned nice and personable, he could do the work right away, and he has worked with the company we had doing driveway paving work right after him, so felt comfortable having him oversee the timing of things. He was really thorough in explaining any possible extra costs that might arise, just so we knew about them ahead of time, but none were needed. 
    Quite a crew of guys showed up for the cement removal and replacement.  They were really careful not to damage the lawn or adjoining flower beds, and the entire crew was very polite and friendly.
    The completed sidewalk and patio look FANTASTIC!!!!!!!  I watched as they were doing the finishing work on it, they made several passes over it to make sure the surface was completely smooth, with no lines from the trowel thing they used.  He also flared out the last section of the sidewalk, and made it a little wider as it went around the corner of the house, to make for a more comfortable transition.  This was something that I wouldn't have thought of, but it is really nice to have it.
    Great guy, great workers, I'd hire him again in a hearbeat!

    Even though we ended up going with another company, I wanted to put a review on here, because I think Paul and his company are a quality operation, his prices are great, and he was really nice to deal with on the phone.  He had come out a couple years prior and wrote an estimate for the work, but we were not able to afford it at that time.
    I called him for an updated estimate, he pulled the old one, updated it and dropped it in the mail.
    I ended up going with another company, mainly because I felt more comfortable that they had worked quite a bit with the company doing the asphalt portion of our project, and they could start right away.
    But - Paul's pricing is VERY competitive, and he's a nice guy to deal with, it made the decision of who to go with really hard for us!

    Almost everything was positive about the experience. He was timely and the quoted job had a couple of different variations that happened during the job but he didn’t charge us. He did very good work. I would absolutely use AJ's Construction again in the future.

    The process of working with fine-line from start to finish was painful.  We purchased the house and in the purchase agreement was the replacement of the patio, the previous owner was to pay a %  and we paid a %, in the purchase agreement it was written that we had the option to use fine-line becuase there bid for the project was about the same as several other companies we recieved estimates from, but the previous owner had used Fine-line in the past and wanted them to have the work.  After signing the purchase agreement for the house, we had 30 days to agree to the Fine-line estimate, give 5k down or the estimate would be null and void if we didn't get the deposit and the signed agreement to fineline in 30 days.  We called and emailed several times wanting to make sure they had the correct stamping pattern and colored concrete for us to use them, they never returned our call or emails.  We ended up sending a certified letter with the check and the signed agreement.  After sending the certified letter we continued to call and email with no response, 2 months went by with no contact from Fine-line.  On the contract it stated that they had to perform the work before 10/31/2011.  A week before the deadline, Tim calls and wants to go over the color and stamping pattern, we agreed to meet him late in the evening, he never showed.  Tim then called the next day to apologize and wanted to meet in the early afternoon, my wife and I both work and were not able to meet him on such short notice in the middle of the day.  We agreed to meet the next day in the evening, Tim had to call and reschedule because he was running late.  Finally we met on the weekend he made it out and started the project the next week.  After the project was over we assumed fine-line would send on invoice to pay the remaining bill, we did not receive a bill till the end of November and it was sent by email, and asked to pay immediately because it was due within 30 days from when the project was completed.  I was unwilling to pay fine-line directly as a lien from Cemstone Concrete Company was placed on our home due to Tim not paying Cemstone.  We ended up paying Cemstone directly, waiting for the lien waiver to show removal of the lien and then paid fine-line, but between the lien from Cemstone and recieving the lien waiver, Tim emailed and called 4-5 times to get his money, I instructed him that I was going to pay Cemstone directly and then pay him, once I had the lien waiver.

    Jon, the owner, ended up power washing the driveway on a rainy day. It was hard to tell the quality of the cleaning due to the driveway staying so wet from the rain. The next day, they resealed the driveway while we were out of town. He must have done part of it in the rain because there are small round marks on the driveway that aren't sealed. The overall sealing job is very poor. There are some grooved parts that don't look like enough sealer was put on compared to other sections. Also, he did not fix the cracks in the driveway. When we called about this, he said when he went to mix the cement to fix the cracks it was the wrong color and he needed to come back with the right colored cement. It has been 3 1/2 weeks and he still hasn't come back to do it. When we have called, he says he is stuck on the other side of town doing another job and will get to it but he should have had time to do it in almost a month.

    Since my wife and I were the contractors it was great having Scott and his crew coordinate a large portion of getting the addition dug, poured and framed in. He also coordinated residing our whole home and putting the roof on the addition. They worked very hard and were always on time. All of his people were great to deal with. Scott always called back promptly and his communication was top notch. Any problems we had with subs or any other issues were handled quickly and in a fair manner. He had lots of contacts that were also helpful in the process. Whenever he was there and I wasn't, which was most of the time, I felt comfortable that he was watching what was going on. I was very impressed with his team getting there everyday at 7:00 am and getting right to work. Quality seems to be excellence and Scott has a no nonsense approach.
