He installed a complicated flagstone walkway, on-time and on-budget. Always let me know when he was showing up. I appreciated the work and professionalism enough to ask him back out to do a different job.

The company did such an excellent job we have hired them to do other concrete related repairs around our home.

i previously reviewed this company and the work performed . it was not a good review since "Bill" tried to increase the repairs cost more than double the first estimate and was not successful even though he accepted my offer. when it was determined that existing brick was no longer available , i even offered to recover exiting brick and removing old mortar to make this repair esthetically feasable and more cost affective . .A formitable task on my part i might add. Since he was not interested in doing the repairs that he originally estimated , he presented me with an estimate well over 4 tiimes the first one. Following his demands for $12000 . We settled on $8000. I requested the mortar and concrete be similar to the remainder of the house. Results, , a stark contrast that is beyond duscussion. Afterward, he said he expected to be paid when he said he was finished. I was working on the other side of the city when he demanded to be paid though he was not finished . His definition of paid when finished is when he quits. he says he will come back later to finish the job and he threatens to put a lien on my residence.....a threat he must use often. i have never heard from him since. i did not refuse payment . i was nowhere near my residence and did not anticipate his demands since his assistant was still at my house working, A trip the following day to get paid was out of the question! I write this "review" based on his pathetic response to my first one. A BBB complaint will follow. Readers, look at review trends then draw your own conclusions,

Bill was very easy to work with. I appreciated his open communication. He did a great job and made sure everything was cleaned up when the job was done.

My review is similar to a previous one. Replace/repair brick retaining wall and front residential steps. i wanted the same materials or very similar to the brick and mortar originally used over 30 years ago. Bill was in favior of using flat stone instead. since the original brick was no longer available. . i volunteered a deposit Bill held for approx 5 months. The option of stone was not acceptable to me. i told him i would dismantle the landscaping wall and steps, remove old mortar and he could use the old brick. He acknoledged that option but raised the estimate to $12000, a serious upcharge from the less than $5000 estimate . Regretably we agreed to $8000. After working with an assistant for approx 3 weeks he said he wouid be finished within the following week . i agreed to the payment and asked him to let me know. i was at work some distance from my residence when he texted he wanted to be paid that afternoon. i could not get home quickly due to the distance away. Meanwhile, there was considerable mortar and brick trash still in my yard, equipment still there and flower bed edging completely ripped up. Agreed repairs to remaining walls in the front and rear of the house was not done. . He still insisted on being paid and he would return to complete repairs. He approached my wife who was not privy of the agreement and stated he wouid file a lien on my house for faiure to pay. There was no refusal to pay in spite of unfinished repairs . He stated he did not want to drive back the next day to pick up a check though he still had not finished agreed repairs. He became very agitated and threatened failure to pay actions. i stated there was no issue and a check wouid be ready later that day or the first of the next morning. i provided payment for the entire job the following morning but he did not pick it up until much later in spite of his demands . i have attemted contact to no avail. he does not return calls, emails or texts and has made no effort to finish his job as he stated. The quality of his work was good but his attitude was unjustified.

Response from Company:

Ok so you don't pay on time?. You disappeared when payments per contract were due? my work is stellar and you tried to play me for a fool. This is what happened

Bill did most of the work, before he finished he told me to pay him, he even threatened to put a lien on my property, I paid him and I never saw him again, he told me he would return on Monday and he always has excuses. I have called him several times and he does not answer the phone, he is not done with the work yet

Response from Company:

That is absolutely not true what you are saying. The work we did was finished per contract? and the only problem was getting paid anything from you. Next time don't hire a contractor if you plan on giving him a hard time receiving payments owed per contract.

A-1 American Construction rebuilt brick steps and rebuilt stonework on the front of my home. They were quick, the work was great, and price very reasonable. Would definitely use them again!

The owner raised the price at the middle of the job. Doubled it. Used the wrong grout color and lied about it getting a lighter color in a month. He was very dishonest!!!

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
