OK, so here's the deal... if you live in the Sacramento area and are looking to get some concrete work done, check out Lilo and 5 Star Concrete. (916)498-4499. He's a genuinely good guy, works with his two nephews, they work hard and do quality work for a good price. Give him a call and tell him I referred you. If I EVER need concrete work again, I won't even bother with putting out for a bid... PERIOD!
I wasn't looking for anything fancy, just a brush finish slab at 4" with rebar, and he delivered beyond expectations. Professional, courteous and respectful. An absolute pleasure to do business with. And, if you're like me, and believe in supporting small business and the little guy, than this is the guy to go with.
I was so impressed with him, his work, his attitude and everything, I tipped him a couple hundred extra for the job. Also, his work truck blew a head gasket while doing my job, so if you can, show the guy a little love for me. My tip won't go far to fix his truck, but maybe if he gets a job or two out of this it will. Even in the adversity of his truck breaking down, he kept his professionalism about himself so hire this guy and keep him and his family in business. America needs more guys like this!
And, if you would be so kind, share this post... you never know who it'll reach to help him out.
Doing so will make you a good human and bring you good karma!
