He believes in making sure customers are always completely satisfied with every job and will always make sure the work done is up to A-1's standards.
A-1 Concrete has done two jobs for me recently. The most difficult was replacement of the 36'x5.5' aggregate concrete surface of the porch of my home. They removed the 30 year old cracked and sunken concrete surface, tamped down the sand and gravel fill below the surface, installed all new flashing and plastic and poured a new aggregate surface. It looks beautiful and blends nicely with the aggregate concrete sidewalk in front of the porch. They also installed three tie rods and decorative cast iron anchor plates in the shape of stars to stabilize the exterior brick wall of the porch. The rods tie back through the main foundation wall at the back of the porch. This was a difficult bit of work and they completely met my expectations. They returned several times to get the cast iron anchor plates installed perfectly. A wonderful job which repaired the porch and added a beautiful architectural detail to the house!! The next was a sidewalk leveling and repair at my local church where I serve as a deacon. They leveled 10 sidewalk slabs in our 27 year old concrete sidewalk. They did a great job on the badly cracked and uneven sidewalk and their pricing was very reasonable. They were on time and did great work. A very good value!
