Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How do I find a good concrete contractor in D.C.?

You can find concrete contractors in Washington, D.C. by searching online. Narrow your results based on the type of services you need. Do you need a concrete floor or driveway? Look for concrete pavers. For stamped concrete, look for stamped concrete contractors.

Review several business profiles, then contact a few contractors to request price quotes. Keep in mind that contractors should have current insurance and a license.

What is the best sealer to use on concrete?

Because unsealed concrete is porous, it readily absorbs liquids, leading to unsightly stains and freeze-and-thaw cycle damage. For this reason, it’s important to seal concrete that will see spills or outdoor weather.

The best option for garage floors and other high-traffic areas is epoxy, which forms a hard and extremely durable surface on top of concrete. Epoxy, acrylic, and polishes are often used on indoor floors, while acrylic-resin sealers and reactive penetrating sealers are used on outdoor surfaces to repel water and salt. Locate a concrete contractor in your area to help find the best solution.

What do paving contractors do?

Paving contractors can be hired to install a concrete or asphalt driveway at your home, office or property. They can also repave an asphalt or concrete driveway that has been damaged by time, weather or heavy loads. When you are looking for a driveway contractor, request quotes from at least three professionals who are in good standing and have great customer reviews. They should do a site visit and write you a bid, detailing the work involved, materials needed, approximate length of the project and estimated cost.

The site for your new driveway will determine costs and the work required for your contractor. First, the ground must be excavated to lay a clear path. This means removing any trees, bushes and stumps. Next, the driveway contractor will grade the area, making a level surface for the concrete or asphalt. To ensure proper drainage, driveway contractors should install a sub-base of compacted gravel (or similar) 4 inches-8 inches deep, depending on your soil type. Then the concrete or asphalt may be poured and smoothed over the top. Your driveway contractor should recommend an appropriate sealant for your climate and advise you on curing time.

How much does it cost to redo a concrete driveway?

 Here are some examples of average costs:

  • The national average cost to hire a concrete specialist is $2,750, but that price can vary greatly depending on the work needed to repair and resurface your concrete driveway, the square footage of the project, current costs of concrete, and regional labor rates.
  • Driveway contractors average $2-$3 per square foot to smooth and resurface your asphalt driveway.
  • Resurfacing concrete driveways averages $3-$10 per square foot. Pricing can depend on repairs needed, project size and geographic location.
  • Nationally, the average cost for resurfacing a 500-square-foot driveway ranges from $2,000 to $5,000.
  • Sealant for a concrete drive can cost $20-$80 per gallon.
  • Sealant for an asphalt drive averages 25 cents per square foot.

Is it better to stain or paint concrete?

A concrete paint cover is typically opaque and covers up the color of the concrete. This means it provides significant protection to the concrete below. However, if it is improperly applied or subjected to heavy traffic, a painted concrete floor is likely to chip and peel. 

Epoxy and staining are two types of concrete floor sealer. Epoxy is a more durable but often more expensive option than a concrete stain. Epoxy forms a protective layer, while concrete stain is more decorative and requires more maintenance. Because epoxy can be more expensive than concrete stain, it is best used in high-traffic areas or in applications where low maintenance is desired.

A concrete stain, on the other hand, is quick to apply and can show off the textures of the concrete, but it does not provide a high degree of protection for the concrete against spills, salt, water and other contaminants. Staining concrete generally requires a dust mop, a pH-neutral cleaner and water to clean, while epoxy can cause resin buildup that necessitates the use of special detergents.

Find a concrete contractor near you for help selecting the right floor concrete sealer.

What can concrete contractors do?

Concrete contractors can build foundations, structures, driveways, concrete storm drains, raise or level concrete patios and much more. They can handle every step of the process, starting with framing the mold that the concrete is poured into. They then cut, assemble and tie together the rebar, giving the concrete its tensile strength. Finally, they pour the concrete in, mixing and conditioning it to ensure it cures properly. They will also take steps to ensure that no air pockets are trapped within it.

What is the best finish for concrete floors?

The best finish for concrete floors depends on your personal taste. An acid stain is a bold, varied look with lots of texture and the potential for earthy tones and a natural stone appearance. A water-based stain might not last as long as an acid stain, but it gives you the choice of many different colors. Epoxy is great for high-traffic areas, kitchens, bathrooms, basements and garages. It provides a glossy, damage-resistant, non-slip coating on your concrete floors. To find out which finish is the best for your concrete floors, contact a concrete contractor near you.

Does a concrete contractor need to enter my home?

If the concrete job is 100% outdoors, a concrete contractor will not need to enter your home. However, certain jobs may require a professional to enter your home, including pouring a slab floor or laying a foundation for a fireplace or other heavy object. 

If a contractor needs to see the inside of your home during the consultation, you can ask to video chat and share photos through email and text messages to reduce exposure. Put a plan in place as you talk to local concrete contractors.

Do concrete contractors offer remote or virtual services?

Concrete contractors must be present to pour concrete. If you come across a profile that states the concrete contractor is offering remote services, message the contractor to see what those services include. 

In any case, contact local concrete contractors to ask whether they can perform the job under current guidelines. You can also discuss other strategies to stay safe, like virtual payments and video consultations.

How can I find out if a concrete contractor is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider?

In order to know if a concrete contractor is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider in your city or state, you’ll need to visit your city or state’s official government website.

Another helpful resource is CISA’s website, which includes a guide to Identifying Critical Infrastructure During COVID-19 that provides information on a national level. This guideline presents 16 categories of critical infrastructure sectors, which can help in determining whether concrete contractors are currently considered essential service providers. Some, but not all, jurisdictions follow CISA’s definitions of critical infrastructure.

Initial consultation was great, considering I hired someone previous that did subpar work replacing 2 brick steps and 10x10 concrete slab. I was so disappointed. But Jamal gave me hope and reinsurance he could fix the many mistakes the other contractor made, which brought me so much comfort. The best part, he took the time to go over the work needed and also gave many options. After only a few days I received a great estimate. First day Jamal and his crew arrived in a timely manner with great consideration of my neighbors and quickly dismantled the mess that was there, leveled and marked off the area for new concrete. Next day poured concrete for patio step and 12x12 concrete slab. Because of the temperature this was a time consuming process. But they got it done, also leaving my back yard clean from debris and trash. I have no complaints. I’m so happy with the work. I have already recommended Concrete Pros to friends, family and coworkers. I look forward to doing business with them again, thank you Concrete Pros for a excellent job! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I have been looking to add more quality sub contractors with an eye for detail to have in my back pocket for projects like this. I wouldn't recommend him to put materials in your space. Wilmer gave me an estimate to do concrete leveling in a basement, so I could install laminate. With the potential of giving him the laminate flooring portion of the job as well. I asked if he had done it before, He said he had done it and knew how to do it. I'm a contractor and have done it before. However, I had other projects I needed to get taken care of and didn't have the time to do the additional leveling. He didn't prep the concrete, there was still paint, mud and glue on the floor. He didn't read the instructions on the bag, and didn't use bonding adhesive prior to pouring. When he returned the following day I noticed that the bonding adhesive was not used and then after a 4 days of trying to get the floor to dry I walked on it, it cracked. This was a big dissapointment... I had to pull up most of his work and redo it myself. Along with properly preping the floor removed the concrete/glue/paint & mud. He also offered to lay the flooring on top of the wet concrete before it was dry and ready... Serious RED FLAG this can create mold underneath the flooring requiring future issues. It's not about getting in and out of a job as quickly as possible. It's about doing it correctly and have referrals and taking on the next project for the same client. Unfortunately, I can't use him for future work.

I am terribly disappointed, dissatisfied and disgusted with this service. I paid a good amount of money to repair my walk way that essentially went down the drain. After initial consultation with Max he assured me that he could repair it. After a couple of weeks it started to re-crack and he was called again to come out to check it and repair it again and told me that I would have to pay an extra fee to place sealant on the concrete. I do seriously question the integrity of this contractor and feel that he will mislead customers for monetary gain. From the pictures shown my walkway is left looking worse than what it had been before.
