"I must say
and his crew exceeded my expectations. They were at the job site on-time and finished it fast. He is easy to communicate with" and available. He was flexible. Also, his guys were nice and professional. One thing I was impressed with was how clean they left the job site. The concrete looks beautiful and is very well done. Minimal damage to my yard.
is a guy who does what he says he will do when he says he will do it. Thanks

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.

The appraiser was very cordial and answered all our questions. He sent us the appraisal by email within a few hours. The price was very reasonable in comparison to other estimates. Addresses of previous similar jobs were readily given and we checked them out. The Date for starting the project was mutually arranged and accommodated our needs. The project took 4 days. The workers were very polite and cleaned up the work area quite thoroughly. The new cement area was blocked off with net material to discourage anyone from stepping on the wet cement. We were very impressed by the professionalism of these workers.

Mr.
Piqua Concrete Contractors Provider Name Locked
was a complete professional. First, he owns large excavation equipment and was able to do a thorough job of re-contouring our land so that we had proper water drainage near the end of our driveway. We have had contractors come who took on jobs that were too big and really struggled with the final product because they didn't have the right equipment- this wasn't the case with Mr.
Piqua Concrete Contractors Provider Name Locked
.
Our property has a slope down to the road and requires a drainage pipe under the end of the driveway to channel water down the rest of the hill. It had been 30 years since the channel was originally dug, so the pipe was higher than the current flow of water in the ditch- which ended up just pooling (the mosquitoes loved it) after every storm. Mr.
Piqua Concrete Contractors Provider Name Locked
removed the top
Piqua Concrete Contractors Provider Name Locked
of gravel from that portion of the driveway, removed the old (and partially crushed) metal pipe, dug and graded the trench to accept a new pvc pipe, and re-graveled the top. We have since had a heavy thunderstorm and the water moved like a swift stream, straight down to the neighborhood collection system. He then added a beautiful stone veneer to the
Piqua Concrete Contractors Provider Name Locked
of the pipe so that it looks high-end and finished, which is nice since it's the first thing you see. It used to be just the razor-sharp end of the crushed corrugated pipe- so this treatment is a lot safer around children.
We also needed to replace the original yard light, which had collapsed, and the mailbox post that was heavily leaning. Neither had proper concrete footings, so Mr.
Piqua Concrete Contractors Provider Name Locked
dug new holes and poured concrete footings and removed the old pieces. He assembled and attached the new light from start to finish. Now, the new lamp and mailbox posts are solid and properly anchored (and will hopefully stand up to our snowblower for many winters).
All of this was done while we were on vacation. He said that we would be pleased, and we were (unlike 8/10 of the contractors we have used in the last 4 years). I think he has an artistic vision and works diligently to see that vision come to fruition. Most of the folks we have hired have used the "it's good enough" metric- which ends up looking amateurish but at a premium price. This cost of this job wasn't cheap, but it was fair. We were truly delighted with the end result.

The job was done very well, and quickly! After an initial meeting to define the job needed, the job was scheduled. The work crew was on time, and did a great job of preparing the site, pouring and finishing the concrete. We are very happy with the results!

It went well. The crew who did the prep. work did a great job. They were punctual and highly professional. It has been record-breaking hot so it was hard work, indeed. The only break they took was waiting for the concrete truck to arrive and that was a shot time, less than 1/2 hour. On the initial job preparation, the crew recommended several things that could be done to improve the space, the use of the space and to help us in the future should we need an easy way to access our house. The day the concrete was poured went equally smoothly. The men were helpful throughout the job. They provided ideas that we had not considered and made the entire job better if we were to incorporate into the scope of the job. Thankfully, we did and are exceedingly pleased with the results.

.The crew arrived early in the morning and began cuttin the old cement driveway with a heavy saw. They also broke up the apron in front of th garage doors. It took several hours of prep work. The new apron was poured. It was angled for proper runoff to the drywell. The driveway opening was filled with soil and the cement dust was swept up and hosed off the surrounding areas. The

First of all when I received the contract the fine print stated no warranty... I stated to

Piqua Concrete Contractors Provider Name Locked
that this was a game changer and the deal is dead thus at that time he changed it to a 1 year warranty.
BEWARE.....
in late June and early
Piqua Concrete Contractors Provider Name Locked
of this year it rained and rained and one day I walk down in the basement when it was raining and I saw a small water fall coming from the area where the poach was attached. which should have been sealed...
I tried to call his office at 712-443-6662 and the voice mail said that if this was a bid call 724-272-6695... i called this number and left voice mail at both numbers... Needless to say no one returned my call..
I then logged a complaint with the BBB of Pittsburgh and then I received a call asking what was wrong...
I stated what happened and how it could be reproduce and
Piqua Concrete Contractors Provider Name Locked
came and caulked and caulked and even took off the clap boards and said to test it in the AM and I did and it still leaked. He returned and scratched his head and did more caulking and the next day it leaked again.. the third time he came he stated that the area wasn't seal was under the threshold of the door.. he wanted to cut out the threshold and when asked who is going to resolve the threshold he said that the leak would be repaired and that is all he was concerned about
bottom line is that He contracted to replace 2 concrete slabs and that they would be water tight so that they will not leak. one does and no resolve.
the leak is still present
the clapboard is attached to the house with silicone
forgot when he was trying to seal the areas underneath the threshold he left silicone on the cement and now there is a stain he tried to removed it but when the slab gets wet it look like baby %$##..
now his comment was not to spray water under the threshold and he also stated that no one else ever complained of this problem or maybe they have this problem but just don't know it
Question how to you tell mother nature not to rain on the porch because this was when I first saw it??
Do people wash off their porches????
furthermore he reattached the the clap board and instead of nailing it he stuck it on with
silicone and now its appears to be falling off
BEWARE of this contractor what he states he can do and what he does is two different stories. Poor workmanship
