Work Description: Removed 180 square feet of asphalt driveway and replaced with concrete. Including replacing a 14' trench drain in front of the garage and digging out a substantial footer to support the outer edge of the garage floor slab which had been undermined by the failing trench drail.Comments: They seemed pretty good at the biggest part of the job (pouring and shaping some 8 yards of concrete to form a well-draining driveway surface) but they really dropped the ball on some of the details of both the final product and preparing for that final pour. Their schedule was erratic; they didn't show up some times they said they would and then they would suddenly show up and really want to rush to get things done even when it was clear that trying to push things too fast would compromise the final product. Their erratic working style also basically meant that I had to be there whenever they were working to deal with small issues and even provide minor supplies (I loaned them my wheelbarrow when I found one of their guys using my rolling trash can to move gravel for example). My biggest complaint is that they didn't do a good job finishing around the trench drain so to actually open it for service some of the concrete had to be chipped away making for a very unprofessional appearance. They also used very minimal forms so the sides of the driveway are somewhat bowed and there was a lot of concrete flow under the bottom of the forms which I ended up having to remove myself (they weren't really great at cleaning up in general and left quite a bit of waste in the alley behind our neighbors' house).
They did get the job done quickly though, and the price seemed reasonable, but between the poor details and the difficulty in working with them we would not use them again.
