If you read this short review you would think I got paid for it, but not! It is just a way to thank you to Olshan Foundation Solutions, Richard Solsberry (tech) and the actual company owner for being a company you can rely upon. I called them because I was so worried that a multi-year long pool leak may have started a big foundation issue and possible sink hole (I was freaking out about all the possibilities). They were very courteous from the first call. The owner actually called me to make sure I was taken good care off and provided me with a preliminary opinion. Then during the visit, which was free of charge!, Mr Solsberry made measurements to determine the current state of the foundation. We spend almost an hour discussing my concerns and examining the foundation, crown molding and bricks. Mr Solsberry had great experience in the Katy area and provided with more feedback I could ever imagine. We discussed the effect of trees over the lide-long health of the foundation as well. He only left when all my questions were completely answered to my satisfaction. I can only thank Olshan Foundation repair for their time and knowledge share. After a few months with Foundation nightmares I was able to sleep well at nite knowing my family was safe and I didnt have to move out. I was relief I could continue to make payments on that big mortgage debt knowing my investment was safe. Thanks Olshan!!!See more

At first I noticed that Zig Zag seemed new to Thumbtack, but they were insured and that gave me some peace of mind and I always like to meet with people before I hire them because you can tell a lot more from meeting someone before hiring them than just going off a number or reviews! Richard responded to my thumbtack job quickly and made time to contact me personally. We met as discussed to review work to be completed and expectations. Upon visual inspection prior to work, Richard pointed out a few things I had overlooked (buried drain lines, sprinkler heads and conduit) and was very helpful. I ordered materials and paid for them, then he met me at Home Depot to help with pick up since they weighed almost 3400 lbs! Richard was a huge help! Every time we have talked he has been honest, professional and punctual. Don’t let the lack of reviews discourage you from hiring this guy! Everyone has to start out somewhere on Thumbtack, but you can tell that this definitely is not Richard’s first rodeo and he has plenty of experience. I’ll hire him again in the future for sure.See more

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with a concrete contractor during the COVID-19 pandemic?

Setting up appointments and consultations with concrete contractors during the COVID-19 pandemic should be done digitally. The best place to start is with an online search. After comparing local services, contact contractors directly and ask if they can perform an assessment over phone or video. This may be enough for them to give you an estimate. You can then discuss whether it’s safe to perform the service given current restrictions and guidelines.

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. 

Are there ways to be safe if I hire a concrete contractor when social distancing?

If you’re hiring a concrete contractor, stay safe by following the guidelines issued by your local government, as well as those issued by the CDC.  Ensure that you, the contractor and the workers do not come within 6 feet of each other, wave instead of shaking hands, sanitize any involved surfaces and use virtual payment services instead of cash or check. Make sure to discuss a strategy in depth with your local concrete contractors before you start the project.

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. When hiring a paving contractor, check out our tips for smart hiring on Thumbtack.

Can I use digital payments to pay for concrete installation?

It is increasingly common for concrete installers to accept digital payments instead of cash or check. The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has only served to encourage this practice. Look for payment options like PayPal, Venmo, Square Cash, Zelle, Google Pay or others when you compare concrete contractors online. When you contact a concrete contractor, ask whether the contractor would be willing to accept.

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 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.

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.

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.
