Work Description: driveway and patio concreteComments: Please save yourself a headache, this guy is unreliable, unprofessional and has an utterly entitled attitude. His license is under delinquent status. You can look that up for yourself. He's the worst person I've ever work with. He asked for all the money upfront. We ended up giving him 50% upfront. He came in completed half the job and left, promising to come back the next day. He never came back, day after day he had one and a million excuses why he couldn't show up. We had to have many difficult phone calls with him, asking, demanding and even begging for him to come back and complete the job. He finally came back about 3 weeks later and even then didn't fully complete the job. He left a lot of garbage behind, he splashed all my windows and made a mess all the way around my house and did a terrible job. I would never recommend him and never want to see him again. He doesn't even deserve the one star.
Work Description: DrivewayComments: This company is a fraud, i will never recommend this company. They didn't finish their job, and his work is trash besides all the trash they left around the house including concrete splashed on my walls, windows and fence...
Work Description: Landscape & ConcreteComments: This company will scam your money and threaten you before running away for good. Extremely rude right after they collect your money. Karma will get them eventually, but before it does, do not become another victim. I have reported them. I also found a few people who got their money stolen from this business. No surprise. It’s the same scam over and over again.
Work Description: DrivewayComments: This is a ripoff and fraud. They only have a few amateurs taking on more than they could chew. You will end up having to pay for much more to finish up the job. Run away and do not listen to all the sweet talks before they take money. No bond, no insurance, license got suspended. Technically, you can report this business.

Work Description: Basement remodel 35kComments: Buyer beware!! Money stolen. I was accepting bids for a basement remodel. The company gave us a competitive bid and we accepted. The Taka crew began working on the project. We started communicating with Den (Owner of Taka Concrete). Work started immediately and we were initially pleased with the progress.
During this time Den requested money multiple times for the work. At one point he required a bigger amount that was required for the Kitchen. He said that this would be installed the following week. Around the beginning of January of 2020, all worked stopped. Workers came by the house in mid February, we were told there was a delay and they proceeded to collect their tools and left.
Over the remaining year I had been in constant correspondence with Den to complete the job. The biggest and most glaring issue we have experienced, is that multiple promises were made to work on the project, which were not kept, and our money was stolen. This has caused a great deal of Anxiety for my family and I, as we were looking forward to having the additional finished space to use. Also I have paid Den a great deal of money which took me several years to save for this project. I will be taking him to court!!
Work Description: ConcreteComments: Do not fall for his trap and all the “big talk”. I repeat do not fall for all the sweet talk. As soon as he gets the money, your life is miserable. Believe every single negative review, they have the same pattern. If you still don’t believe, check this company on L&I website. Their license has been suspended. No insurance, no bond, an on-going lawsuit, and a few unpaid fines. Do your due diligence before signing the contract. And remember, you can get out of the contract because he is running this business illegally without license.
Work Description: They concreted a wheelchair ramp for meComments: I told them I wanted it finished ASAP. He came over the next day to give me a bid that was very reasonable. Then he had it finished in a week, just at like I wanted. The work only took one day, because it was a family team of three that did the work, they were all very nice. I have already contracted with them to do more work for me 😁
Work Description: Concrete Patios, Walks & Steps - InstallComments: it was just as I wanted . Den communicated with me as what I needed and he and his team made it happen
Work Description: Backyard RemodelComments: I will give my honest review on working with Taka Concrete. In the end, they made it right and finished the job which we are happy with but the road to get there was longer than agreed and hard. I think the scale of the project was too much and the logistics, organization and professionalism was lacking. Our project included electrical wiring, turf installation, irrigation, fire pit installation, raised flower bed installation, stone work and a large area of stamped, stained and sealed concrete with stairs coming down the on side of our sloped home connecting to our driveway- it was a huge project. Maybe we went into it with unrealistic expectations of a time frame and a budget and that created many confrontations but in the end the job is done and it looks beautiful.
Work Description: Concrete Stamp, retaining wall, turf, Lighting, Irrigation, fire pitComments: Den talk big game and agreed to budget we can afford. Then all hell broke lose. He took him 4 months to finish the job. He spoke extreme rude and threaten us multiple times. I would never wish this on anyone. I WOULD NEVER RECOMMEND Taka Concrete LLC
Work Description: WalkwayComments: 5 yards of exposed aggregate walkway around the back and side of garage looks good. Work was delayed a few days by rain and ready mix being available. Area was cleaned up before leaving. We're happy.
Port Orchard WA
Work Description: Concrete front porch stamped, stamped driveway brush cement padComments: I would not deal with this company again, poor workmanship, damage to garage door when old driveway dug up , 3 dents in door (damage denied by Den) 2x2 door trim broke in half we fixed it ourseves. Front door and door threshold damaged and scratched. Our contract was signed May 8 th worked started Mary 9 th and was to take 8 Days. We paid Den 3/4 of the money up front , he then asked for 3,000 more when he poured the cement on May 22 since things were going well at this point and we only owed 2,000 more we gave him full payment, from there it went down hill, at least 25 no call no show appointments with Den and crew.( I may have missed a few and this is no Exageration). Nor do I lie. I started small claims court action at the middle of August, again Den asking us to ne patient he promised he would be there sat the end of the week oh surprise surprise no call no show after multiple chances to finish the project started finally I fired him om October 8 th as again no call no show , responded they would be there the next day oh surprise surprise no call no show againI also communicated on Oct 9th that he could either refund the last 5,000 we paid him back in May or I would be calling no for bids on Monday and asking for the full amount allowed in small claims court .Finally six months later the project is complete however the shoddy work lack of communication, ethics and morals is appalling 6 months for an 8 day job and Blane it on the weather and lack of staff is not acceptable. I would be happy to share all my attempts at communication with this company and their response of no call no show. We got no deal we paid for everything we contracted for. Den says he will be back over the next two years to guarantee his work, I doubt we will ever see him again, I will never pay a contractor ahead again live and learn. I will also be reporting him to the BBB.
Den came a few weeks ago spoke to my husband a out iddues we had
He denied da.age to garage coor failed to recognize the poor quite of work
Did not sY anything abput raw concreye all over paved dri eway z( looks like amateurs did tve job there is plain cement pT he's allover or driveway) nor did he say anything s out it misding. Plus on bottom railong of front porch . Now refusing yo co.e put a d discuss i have contractors vp
Ing out to fix what he is refusing to do our project t lookalike amateurs did the job. A FIzy project hone bad
Once I have the bid I will be filong in small claima vort for the money we had yo pay to fix the issues. Again read all of his te iews there are more. Ehatone than positive, I would not recommend this vo tractor again
His eotkmanshop attention to detail la k of eork ethics and communication is extremely poor
Work Description: Concrite driveway and around the houseComments: I hired Den in December of 2019, told me he will do a great job. I asked if the weather is ok to pour concrete now, he said we work all seasons with no problem, I trusted him and started the job. His crew did a lot of short cuts that I have to direct them and even I have to call Den many times to direct his people. They broke my drain at the drop spot while taking old concrete out - which he never fixed instead they covered it with concrete. I told Den to fix it, he said he will and he said he is going to show me a picture , which he never did. I signed the contract to include exposed aggregated finish, but he gave me a broom finished. When they finished they left me with numerous issues: they left me with uneven concrete to my front door, uneven concrete in front of my garage door which collects water and gets into my garage when it rains, they blocked my drain drop spot from my gutter without directing it away from the house which causes water to go into my garage as well, uneven concrete on the patio that collects water When it rains, unfinished curve that needs to be done in between my neighbors that needs to be done immediately because it causes extreme flooding into their driveway, i have to rush to get a lots of sands from Lowe’s to hold the flooding water.
I told Den please come and do something about it, he sent his guy to place a temporary drain and told me he will come and will fish everything. He asked me to give him $500.00 to buy the materials to finish and that was the day before Christmas , I gave him the money, the next day he text me and said he is waiting for his guys at Home Depot, he stated I have the materials but they aren’t here yet I can’t do the job without them. Finally he told me his crew is on vacation, that They are with their family and we will do it after new year, I said ok - since then he never come back. We exchanged many text , he makes an excuse about the weather, I have been patient for the last 5 months he said he will come In April, never did, then May, then, the second week of June.I texted him that this is the second week of June and what his plans are ? he extended to July, Then to August, September now it is October never showed up. I am unhappy that he left me with lots of messes. The Concret looks old with stains and multiple cracks, it is only 10 months old. I just can’t imagine how it will look like in the next months . Will never recommend him to do the job. I have all his text. I can copy and paste if he wants too. From now on I will have my lawyer to deal with him.
Work Description: Driveway ReplacementComments: I posted an earlier review of Taka Concrete and was very flattering to them. That was done not long after they completed the job. Within the first two weeks, we began to notice cracks running the entire width of the driveway. At first it was only a couple of cracks and then many, many more. We reached out to Den on 4 occasions and each time he said that they would be out the following week to fix. Today is the 4th time he was supposed to show up and today was the 4th time he did not show. No phone call, no text, nothing. Each time he was supposed to be here, I spent the morning moving vehicles and cleaning the driveway to give him an opportunity to do his fix. Today was the last straw. I can no longer recommend this company.
Federal Way WA
Work Description: remove existing cdriveway, replace while exspanding size, producing a "sand" finishComments: The crew was very professional, courteous, constantly busy and willing to explain what they were doing when asked. I had drawn up what we wanted the project to look like and due to working with Den, the project looked better as it progressed than our original.
We had a contract and Taka Concrete did every thing in the contract with no issues. I recommend this Company to anyone due the the great work on our driveway. Way to go TaKa Concrete LLC.
Work Description: Concrete Driveways/Floors - InstallComments: Den and his crew did an excellent job on my new driveway. Very pleased! Everyone was professional I would highly Recommend Taka Concrete.
Work Description: driveway, wall, drainageComments: There are multiple issues with the work that was done. Some was okay, others not so okay. The biggest issue was/is the driveway.It broke into 2 pieces on the 4th day after pouring. It broke again into a total of 3 pieces at the end of the first week. Keep in mind that the concrete had no traffic of any kind at that point. I noticed it was now broken in 2 more places. These breaks go completely through the concrete are not hair-line cracks. Naturally Taka has not returned any calls. So buyer beware. I'm already having to look for another contractor to see if the driveway can be saved. Terrible workmanship. Poor customer service.
Work Description: front walk way, steps, driveway and parking areaComments: I'd like to be writing a nice review of Taka Concrete, but, unfortunately, Den and crew are way below average in workmanship and follow through. Our project began in early June. Numerous delays, many excuses, inferior work, poor planning and poor execution. To this day, mid-September, the project is not finished, abandoned by Taka Concrete. We have now hired another company to finish the project and correct Taka Concrete's inferior product.
Den talks a nice story, but his follow through is poor. His crew is less than enthusiastic and their work shows it. Much of the first pour had to be ripped out and re-poured. A large planter box/wall was finished in the wrong color, so "finished" isn't the correct term here. Den will set dates and times, but frequently those come and go with no action or communication.
Taka Concrete has proven itself to be a one star company. In hind sight, I regret hiring them!
Federal Way WA
Work Description: Concrete Driveways/Floors - InstallComments: We're looking forward to starting work with Den and his team next week! He has been so pleasant to work with so far and we're confident we've chosen the right team.
Work Description: Concrete Flatwork -Replaced Driveway and walkwayComments: Excellent workers and they did a complete job as contracted. However, everyone showed up late on the date of concrete delivery. This made a very rushed completion and a long day. Overall the job was very good.
Federal Way WA
Work Description: Tear out old driveway and pour new drivewayComments: I'm so happy with my new driveway. Looks awesome!!! The job was finished earlier than planned which was even more awesome. I work from home and my clients have nothing but great comments on how beautiful the driveway is! I will definitely be calling Taka for my next concrete project!
Federal Way WA
Work Description: Replaced cracked, uneven drivewayComments: I hired Taka Concrete on Aug 20, and the work was completed in one day on Sept 1. The big equipment was delivered on August 31 and the crew arrived at my house at 8 AM and got started. Den kept me informed of the timeline, and was always here when he said they would be. When I was told they would be here at 8:00, I really didn’t think they would, but they did. They cleaned up the area and left no trash or concrete debris in my yard or on the sidewalk. They were very careful to prevent concrete that was washed off to expose the aggregate from being washed down the storm drain.
Thank you Taka Concete for a job well done.
Work Description: Concrete Patios, Walks & Steps - InstallComments: This company came into a muddy small green not so green grassed area and turned it into an oasis. I now have concrete all the way around, a dog run area, trash can area (3) full patio with a stone firepit, they extended my front patio and moved the existing plant to another area, they pressure washed the new and the old for a perfect match and were very pleasant to deal with! I’m so pleased with the work they did!
Work Description: Concrete Patios, Walks & Steps - InstallComments: Unfinished job. Den and David won't return my calls or respond to my email messages. I just read some of their reviews and there are a couple of bad ones and those reviews are exactly what they are doing to me. This company shouldn't be on this Network website or Home Advisor.
Work Description: PatioComments: We are very pleased with our new patio. High quality work, creative ideas, and strong work ethic. We love the product, and found the crew members to be interesting and friendly, open to design ideas. I highly recommend TaKa! We would contract with them again On future projects.
Work Description: patio with stamped and stained concreteComments: We are extremely disappointed in the entire process and end results. It started off great, we got along and we thought the crew was friendly. But right after the initial pour it really dropped off. Den stopped communicating with us and stopped showing up for the job. He would tell us the crew would be there on a certain day at a certain time but then not show up, and would not even give us a courtesy call to tell us they wouldn’t be here. We took off several days from work to be here and they never showed. We would have to text him and ask when they were coming back. Sometimes it would take days to hear back from him, and when we did it would be a variety of excuses why they didn’t show. He gave us excuses that COVID shut him down, but this job should have been finished in February before COVID and I have the text messages from back in Feb that says it will be done. There are so many flaws and mistakes, it really is a shame. Half of the patio looks great, but the other half and the steps are terrible. We tried to communicate with Den about fixing it, but we got more excuses. He told us he would come back and fix it but never did. He told us that work was just too busy and he had other jobs. When asked why he accepted new jobs before finishing our job he then replied that he would come fix it in June. We waited and waited, and halfway through July he is still too busy to come fix it.
I wish we could post pictures of the work here, but it won’t let me. Here is a summary of the errors.
He concreted over the drains and now we cannot remove or replace it like we wanted. If we need to access it we will have to chip away at the concrete...and the border is cracking. One day, the last day we saw anyone, the crew tried to remove it and couldn’t. He ended up cracking a chip out of the drain AND a quarter sized chunk from the concrete.
￼The concrete around one downspout...really bad. It’s not the right color, its a dark gray when the rest of our patio is a lighter tan. It’s not sealed, and it’s already chipping away. And there’s a long crack that goes from the down spout all the way to the paver wall.
￼These steps are terrible. The color is uneven and too dark, and doesn’t match the rest of the patio. Den patched in dark gray concrete up against the house and it doesn’t match. He got stain and sealant on the house siding, drilled holes in the siding, and there are sealant drip marks. The sealant was brushed on super thick and you can see the brush marks. They look awful.
There is a whole long strip of patio where Den dropped red stain when he was staining the border. He tried to cover it with dark brown stain, but it made it worse. One of the crew came and sanded the red away, but now it’s just gray spots surrounded by dark red and brown.
On the other downspout he concreted over it. If we need to access or remove this for any reason we will have to break up the concrete. It also has a long crack in it.
There are also several significant cracks already.
I’m not sure we can do anything to fix these mistakes. We trusted him when he said it would look great when it was done. If this is the quality of work he is proud to put his name on, then there is no way we can recommend him to others. We had several coworkers and one neighbor that wanted his info. But we can’t recommend him at this point. We’re really sorry it ended this way.
Lesson...never pay in full before you are happy with the end result.

Work Description: stamped concrete patioComments: Den and crew did a professional job with our patio. The stamp and staining came out amazing and they were flexible on some last minute changes we asked for. Would highly recommend them!
Work Description: Driveway ReplacementComments: Den and his crew replaced an extremely long (over 125 ft) driveway and did a fantastic job for us. The quality of the work was second to none. We now have a driveway that causes our neighbors to stop and look. I highly, highly, highly recommend Taka Concrete.
Work Description: Install a French Drain and PatioComments: Great Job on both! Nice working with them! Good People!
Work Description: PatioComments: We could not be any happier. Our backyard has been an overgrown jungle for years while out kept getting put art the back of the line for other priorities. When Den arrived it was thigh high grass weeds and other debris. His crew cleared the vegetation, hauled away the junk and leveled the ground. They removed the Windser block retaining wall. Then they installed drainage which tied into the houses down spout. Then they replaced the retaining wall for a beautiful raised flower bed. Next the prepared the patio. My step out the sliding glass door is larger and much nicer. I love the natural look of the stamped concrete. The yard looks so fresh and clean and will be a breeze to maintain now. We're so pleased.
Work Description: Concrete Driveways/Floors - InstallComments: Den was really nice and did a great job explaining what would need to be done in order to have a nice patio. His team did great work. They did leave a bit of a mess. I found coffee cups strewn through my yard, cigarette butts in the extra sod and some sort of residue on my house that I had to wash off. Minor things but still required me to clean up after someone I am paying to do work. Overall, my experience with Den and his team were good and I would hire him again (maybe put out a garbage can for his crew)
Work Description: Concrete Driveways/Floors - InstallComments: Trustworthy,, punctual, professional.
Den came to my home for an estimate, price was within my budget so I agreed on the spot. I did have 3 other quotes.
Within 40 minutes his crew arrived to prep the site. They had just finished with a previous order. That you don't see
everyday! 4 days later
Poured concrete sidewalk from patio to driveway. 2.5 hrs later my sidewalk was complete. Looks great! Very happy! And you will be too when you hire takaconcrete!
Work Description: Stamped concrete patio and walkwayComments: We are still in awe of the beautiful stamped concrete driveway and walkway you installed. It even enhanced the look of our landscaping as we hoped it would. Your professionalism will take you far. We wish you continued success. Thank you.
Work Description: -concrete circular vcv drivewayComments: My front driveway looks beautiful.
Den and his crew did a wonderful job. They worked so hard. They are true professionals.
I have already referred them and I will have them come back again to do the rest of my driveway
if you want a job well done do not pass up this
company. They were also the nicest people.
I am usually skeptical when hiring but not this time from start to finish this job is done correctly without any flaws thank you for a great driveway
