Work Description: 20 x 36 free-form rolled edge stamped and colored slab to look like ledgeComments: When we requested a quote, Gary's initial contact was very professional and very enlightening. We were immediately educated on The right way in the wrong ways to approach our project. Gary explained exactly what he was going to provide for services to insure the slabs longevity and they were far greater than any of the other contractors we had quoted. Immediately we knew we found the right company for our project. When Gary and Rob came out to quote the job, they provided pictures of there actual work, not just sample photos from a brochure. We thought we knew what we initially wanted until we identified one of there slabs, which was a custom free form rolled edge slab that looked like ledge coming out of the grown. Rob is the artist of this design and we were all excited to get this look. As we were trying to match our local granite walls, we came up with the right color combo of stains, Gary and Rob have extensive knowledge in this area and educated us enough in this selecting process so we could make the correct final decision on colors
In addition to our agreed upon schedule, Gary was considerate enough to call on the morning he was going to start an provide an exact time when he would show up and what his goals were for the day.
Day one Gary and His team came in and prepped the area to accept the concrete. As this slab design was free-form the layout was a little more challenging, but they completed there goal.
Day two was the concrete pour. This started out a little crazy in preparations for the concrete truck, but once the pour started everything ran like clockwork. Rob worked the design and formed the slab, Gary worked the crew and everything else. Rob worked his color magic and we got to see the results on day three.
Day three was removal of the excess stain, cutting in rock line and sealing the slab. These guy took there time to get the look just as we discussed and there cut lines are free form and look excellent!
In summary this was a big job the came in on time and on budget. Gary does not skimp, he does his work with a caring and professionalism is refreshing. The job will be done right the first time. We could not be happier.
Work Description: Remove 23x24 concrete garage slab, prep work, and replacement of slab.Comments: Gary and his crew were top notch from start to finish. My wife and I were in need of replacing our garage slab in the home we bought a couple years ago because of there being various spots that had sunk prior to us purchasing the home, with one garage door that had a two inch gap on one side because of the sinking issue. The prep work for the floor took longer than expected due to the way the original home builder prepped the ground underneath the original slab (I guess burying boulders under the garage slab was as good a place as any for the homebuilder to dispose of debris from the house foundation), but Gary and his crew were great and worked late to stay on schedule. I knew nothing about concrete work going into this, and decided to seek out a neutral opinion beforehand from our home inspector on the quotes I obtained for the slab replacement work, and he advised me that Gary's quote was the best at addressing the long-term needs of the slab.
Throughout this process, I have learned an awful lot about concrete - I'm one of those idiots that analyzes everything to death before spending money on something. Anyway, for those that live in a cold climate, I have learned that a frost wall is vital to a garage entrance wall. Being in NH, Gary was the only one of these quotes to insist on there being a frost wall installed if there wasn't one (which there wasn't - thank you again, Mr. Homebuilder), as well as a properly prepared and compacted sub-surface (based on my online search, most professionals considered this step to be the most important step, even over reinforced concrete), and a reinforcement bar grid that the concrete is poured into.
Gary also went into great detail to explain the type of concrete to be installed, the quantity, and the make up of the concrete mix, and why all were important, and even gave us updates on the cause of the sinking (the boulders had moved over time and created air pockets under the floor). I had two other quotes for slab replacement, and to be fair, Gary was the highest price by a decent amount, but I assure you it was worth the extra money. My wife and I are planning on staying in our home for many years to come, so it was important to us that we only spend money on this issue once. Yes, the other guys would have been cheaper, but after hearing the feedback from my home inspector, my wife and I were confident that we would only need to address the garage slab once with the work that Gary and his crew quoted. There are some things where spending less is a good thing, but after seeing how meticulous and hard working Gary and his crew were (the 3'x1' frost wall needed to be dug by hand, and they leveled and troweled the poured concrete by hand for hours after the pour), we have no doubts whatsoever that we spent our money in the right place. You will not go wrong with hiring Gary, and I highly recommend him for any concrete.
