Work Completed Date:
April 16, 2015
My wife and I knew we wanted to install a concrete patio and replace a badly damaged section of driveway. We contacted 3 companies to provide estimates. Fred from Concrete Color & Stamps LLC. was the first
contractor to return our call or email. In fact, he replied within a few minutes of our request. He was extremely accommodating, insisting that we schedule a time that was convenient for us.
Fred showed up at the agreed time and we discussed what we were looking for. We knew that we couldn't get the square footage and finish we were looking for within our budget,
but Fred was quick to offer not just an estimate, but REAL discussed several options/solutions that fit our budget. After taking his measurements, Fred sent us a formal, detailed estimate within 1 day.
Over the next week and a half we received estimates from two other companies- one was lower in cost, but didn't offer color and stamped finishes. The other was about within $200 of the Concrete Color & Stamps LLC. estimate.
When we contacted the companies to discuss timing/scheduling, Fred was extremely transparent providing a specific week when the job could be completed (pending good weather).
The others basically gave a window of about a two week time frame for when they could begin work. We ultimately decided on Colorstamp, to pour a standard concrete patio with a stamped and colored border.
This allowed us the option of pouring a larger sized patio that also looks great. Over the next few weeks, Fred was very proactive with communication, letting us know that he was actually running ahead of
schedule with other jobs and his crew could begin our job earlier than scheduled if it worked for us. I had some concerns as I was going to be travelling on business, but Fred offered to come out on a Sunday
afternoon to mark out the area with spray paint, show us samples of the finishes he would use and answer and last minute questions. | |Later that week, his crew arrived as promised and completed the job within
the agreed time frame (2 days). My wife sent me photos of the job as it progressed, including pics of the final product. It looked fantastic. Fred and his crew also did a thorough job of cleaning up the yard upon completion.
If you are considering any concrete work, I HIGHLY recommend Concrete Color & Stamps LLC. They exceeded our expectations. Thanks, Fred!
