Stamped Concrete reviews in Alexandria

Real People ~ Real Reviews ~ Real Results

  • My new stamped concrete patio is beautiful and amazing every time I look at it. The job went extremely well, the price I paid was VERY competitive and I wouldn't hesitate for a moment to highly recommend Salzano Custom Concrete to anyone looking to have a patio, driveway or other hardscape installed. This company is absolutely fantastic to work with, as is the owner, CJ Salzano. They get my highest praise for great service, great price and a finished product that I am proud to display.

  • Mottern Masonry did a amazing job. I had my back patio and front walkway/porch replaced with stamped concrete. The team was very professional and always on time. Jeff provide the original estimate and even helped me think through the design. He also arrived on the first day to ensure the design was exactly how I wanted it. His crew worked fast and hard. Jeff kept me informed and was very responsive through out the project. I would def use them again and refer to friends!

  • I was amazed by her extensive knowledge of plants/trees. Deborah’s crew was on schedule from beginning to end – very professional and a pleasure to work with. We are so lucky to have found such a wonderful landscaper with stonemasons of outstanding ability. I would highly recommend Green Lady Landscape Design and Masonry for any project – large or small!

  • The House to Home Solutions team brings vast experience and hold the highest standards in their work quality.  I was thoroughly impressed with the responsiveness from Daniel and Tony and the crews as they met all the construction timelines.  Their knowledge of the industry and the willingness to share this information to ensure that I was aware of all aspects of the work was top notch.  It was a significant undertaking and they made the process easy and were always there when we encountered any issues and they resolved them quickly.  They were always available which speaks to the character of this company.  They were able to handle all facets of the remodeling process from demo to construction (framing, electrical, plumbing, drywall, roofing, windows) to installation of finishes, floors, appliances, painting, molding, siding, gutters, pavers for a backyard stone patio, and a new concrete driveway.  Their competitive in their pricing and their end product speaks for itself.  I very much look forward to working with the House to Home Solutions team on future projects.

  • I am absolutely pleased with my new stamped concrete patio! Victor was extremely patient and helpful with my endless questions. I was also surprised by how much the stamped concrete looks like actual stone - I am so happy I went with this option over a plain concrete slab. Also, the crew even let me stamp a piece myself! I chose Anthony's Construction Concrete & Masonry Inc over other contracting companies because of Victor’s knowledge and persona. He was great to work with – his contractors were speedy but without compromising the integrity of the work. They were in and out in three days and I was outside enjoying the patio that following weekend. I would definitely recommend Anthony's Construction Concrete & Masonry Inc!

  • Victor and crew did a great job.  Victor is very experienced and adds a lot of value in design and recommendations.   They reworked the concrete forms numerous times just to illustrate how things would look, adding curves to "soften" the look of the stone.   Very pleased with the results.   And, even though we widened the walks and the patio area Victor honored the original quote.   It was a big job, 2 full loads of concrete (18 yards), then the stone work on top, probably 8-10 inches of material, many tons.   Over 1100sf of stone work with two curved 13 foot sitting walls made of stone, all stone, not a veneer, looks awesome.  It's a lot of labor, tedious work, work you don't want to mess up, not easy to fix.  Needs to be done right the first time, they know this too, so it's not going to be fast.  As I tell my customers, cheap, fast, good.  Pick the 2 you want.  You want it cheap and good, it's not going to be fast, you want it fast and good, it's not going to be cheap.  I'm a good and cheap type guy.  So, I'm patient and want it done right.  I don't plan on having something like this done 2 weeks before a wedding or whatever.  PLAN AHEAD.  I waited 2 years to do this review.  I wanted to make sure the quality of the work stood up, not that I was concerned based on how I witnessed them working and we are talking stone here, you know something that's been around probably for thousands of years already, think about that.  There is not one crack or any missing mortar, etc.   They measured and leveled the forms to perfection, not one cup of water stays on the walks or patio, unbelievable to me for this amount of stone work.  I insisted on this to be verified by going over the entire form area prior to pouring any concrete.   I may have insulted them a bit, but I needed to make sure.  It was perfect, they didn't have to raise or lower one inch of the forms, they were dead on.  
    When you consider this will last a lifetime, literally, be patient.   Don't hurry the crew, don't try to get it done by xxxx date, etc.   Big mistake.   Take your time, plan for them to be coming and going for weeks, months if necessary.  They pour concrete when they can, weather permitting.   And, that needs to cure a bit before they do the stone work.  Again, don't panic, don't get impatient.  Yes, it's kind of a mess for a while, stuff piled up, etc.   But, they do a good job of cleaning up daily and cleaned up everything at the end.   This job took a couple months total.  Weather had a lot to do with it.  But, when it was done, WOW.  Don't mess around with repairing old concrete.  Rip it out and install new.   I see poor reviews on this type of work, but honestly, you can't "repair" 30 year old concrete that's cracking, scaling, etc.  As the saying goes, "buy cheap, buy twice".  So, save the repair money and put it towards replacement.  
    They are a small company.  They will move to another job to pour concrete when the time is right making you feel like you're being ignored.  I understand this.  They are trying to be as efficient as possible, so the company can stay profitable.   I'm ok with that as I'm in business too and completely understand why this is happening.   I see lots of reviews out there and many are complaints due to ignorance or intolerance.   Again, this type of work will last longer than your house will.  I can't stress enough to be patient, work with them.  Don't complain about the timing, the results will make all that "problem" go away.   We use this patio every day, it's value to us for outdoor use has already paid for itself, not to mention the equity it provides.  This type of work, stone patios, walkways, etc. will look just as good in 20, 30, 40 years and the value of it in 20+ years will be whatever it would cost then, multiples of what you'll pay today, probably more than your house will increase in value, simply due to labor and general construction business costs.   
    I considered stamped concrete, pavers and the PA blue stone.  Boy am I glad a paid the extra $ for the blue stone, and Victor used the full color blue stone, the "good stuff".   Much better value over time and, IMHO, a higher quality look and feel .  
    Thanks Victor and Merry Christmas.

  • Work completed 8/13/2012.



    Summary:  I was initially happy with the delivered product and would have graded it a solid ?B?.  Unfortunately, extensive fading after 3 years leaves me with a $13,400 job that now looks unprofessional.  My firm belief is that Todd got a bad batch of concrete and is unwilling or unable to correct the problem.  His efforts to remedy the situation left the finish looking worse- worn, blotchy, and very dark gray\brown.  Granted, my one year warranty has expired but there is no way I could have foreseen such a latent defect until I undertook resealing at year three.  See attached picture.  The color should be pewter.





    From the Schneider Contracting FAQ:

    http://www.schneidercontracting.com/faqs/index.html

    I?ve heard that the colors just fade out over time. Is this true?

    "Although you can lose some surface color in extreme wearing situations, all of the iron oxide pigments used in these processes are UV resistant and should not fade. Additionally, the color hardeners that are used to color the surface create a finished surface that is substantially harder than normal concrete and will not wear as quickly. Depending on the coloring techniques used, the concrete color may change slightly over the concrete curing period but, if maintained properly, those colors are there to stay. When the decorative project is complete, it has been treated with a sealer that protects the surface from staining and also brings out the richer colors of the surface. If you notice that the colors are fading, it?s just an indication that the sealer is wearing and the light is no longer reflecting the colors as it once did. A new seal coat, if desired, will bring back the original rich colors."


    Detail:

    Alerted Todd via email on 7/23/2015 of my failed resealing attempt.  I should have been able to easily reseal the stamped concrete and regain the original luster.  His reply- "Goodness, that's not a good look!  Maybe I should drive by and check it out.  Don't worry that you've done something terribly wrong, though.  It can be fixed.  Was the sealer clear (no rust or anything in the can)?"

    Todd came out the week of the 7/26 and reproduced my failure at resealing.  He stated that he had never seen this problem before and would have to refer back to his documentation.

    I emailed Todd on 8/7 asking- "What did you discover after review of your documentation?"  No reply.

    I emailed Todd on 8/19 with a high importance flag and asked that he call me.  He did.  His documentation revealed nothing he cared to reveal to me.

    Todd stopped by with his foreman and did additional tests with colorants and\or sealers in late August or early September.  I have no accurate record of these events as visits were unannounced and testing was not explained to me.

    I emailed Todd on 9/24 and alerted him that 60 days had passed.  His reply- "I didn't realize you were marking the days.  I've not been in the area since the last sample area we did was sealed (to see how it looked after drying).  I would hope to see how it looks within a few days.  Is there a big hurry here?"

    Called Todd on 10/15 after he had not stopped by "in a few days".  He was clearly upset that I was not sufficiently patient.  I explained that I expected a full resolution for what I considered product failure.  Todd advised me that my one year warranty had expired and suggested the driveway looked like I had "power washed it a couple of hundred times". For the record, I have never power washed the driveway nor have I applied ice melt or subjected it to fertilizer overspray. Todd said he was "willing to help" and we agreed that remediation would be completed before the holidays.

    10/20 Crew arrived unannounced.  Todd's crew pressure washed the step and driveway.  Unfortunately, after pressure washing, many areas of the stamped concrete took on a rough\pitted finish and the driveway "broom\brushed finish" was scoured away leaving the whole project looking like it had seen many years of wear and tear.

    10/21 Crew member said team would return on 11/21 but no show.

    10/22 Crew arrived unannounced.  Increte color hardener was applied and sealed. All of the stamped areas are now a much darker brown\gray and have lost much, if not all, of the multi-hued antique effect.  Brush strokes in the final product further distract from what little attractiveness remains in the stamped driveway border.

    10/24 I emailed Todd and expressed my dissatisfaction. 

    10/29 Todd emailed and said a crew would be out tomorrow to "try a different method".  I asked- "What is the plan for tomorrow so I know what to expect?" and received no answer.

    10/30 The crew showed up and planned on power washing the areas recolored last week and would recolor them again with a lighter gray.  I declined the offer.  The aggressive power washing on 10/20 resulted in a material degradation of the surface finish and doing it again would only make matters worse. 







    I encourage anyone considering using Schneider Contracting to inspect my disappointing project at 1910 Ingram Pl. in Alexandria.

  • I had installed stamped concrete on a couple of my previous homes, so when my new home builder suggested I pay $16k for a 250 square foot deck off the back of my new home, I decided to do stamped concrete again.  Lucky for me, CJ Salzano had previously installed a beautiful stamped concrete patio on my neighbor's home at our South Riding house, so I was already primed to use Salzano Concrete.  CJ promptly responded to my call and came out for a no obligation quote.  he explained the process and the scheduling.  He even gave me company references to build the steps from my main floor down to the ground where the patio was going in.  As soon as I got the steps done, CJ's team came in and started the prep work.  They were fast and courteous and within a few days, the patio was 90% done.  The cold weather precluded the finishing touches but CJ's team stayed in contact with me and came out as soon as the weather was OK to continue the work.  The patio looks great!  My neighbors and friends are so impressed and cannot believe it is concrete.  Salzano Concrete is top notch and it so nice to get a company to come in and perform as they claim they will and in a timely manner to boot!  I highly recommend them!

  • The owner, Todd, provided a very timely estimate for the patio.  We decided to use Schneider based off of their Angie's List rating and how professional Todd was.  The team showed up on time, if not early, every day.  One thing that impressed me was that there was a site foreman, and Todd came to the worksite to inspect what his workers were doing.  When they finished, they cleaned up the worksite well.  The result is a wonderful stamped concrete patio that has already gotten many compliments from our neighbors.  Throughout the entire process Todd was professional and very responsive to our questions/concerns.  Schneider was more expensive than most of the quotes that we received, however, the quality of the materials that they used, and the professionalism, made it worth the extra cost.

  •    Throughout the process Jeff was very responsive and
    helpful in easing our concerns and questions. His crew did a phenomenal
    job.The Foreman, Marlin, was very helpful with adjustments and suggested
    shorting the landing allowing for more space.
       Mottern Masonry's
     customer service, professionalism, and the quality of the finished
    product were remarkable. I enthusiastically recommend them if you are
    looking to put in a patio.
