This past month my wife and I hired Alex (Alex Concrete) to excavate and grade a 29' x 18' portion of our backyard, build a 32' x 30" reinforced retaining wall, pour a 18' x 12' patio slab with thickened edges, and place post brackets for a deck and patio cover for our home in Ballard. From estimate to finish the project took two and half weeks and we are very satisfied with the results. Alex was able to provide us with an estimate and detailed proposal of work within 48 hrs over a holiday weekend. The price was very reasonable compared against 4 other estimates. He completed every action item on the proposal. He was very patient and helped us work through and trouble shoot some structural and design issues as well as reinforced and poured some extra concrete pieces to improve the quality and function of our design at no extra cost. Alex and his team were friendly, professional, and hardworking throughout the duration of the project. We will gladly recommend Alex Concrete to any friends and neighbors in need of a concrete contractor in the future.
