Worst experience I ever had!!! – My experience with this company was the worst experience I have ever had. A promised "three day" job to tear out a crumbling aggregate driveway and front sidewalk, turned into a 5+ week NIGHTMARE! I have never seen such incompetence in a business. The owner, Kermit Whitlow, made excuse after excuse for his men not showing up. When they did show up they did not have the right equipment or what they did have broke or was inadequate for the job. It took over two weeks to break up the existing driveway and then they quit showing up. They left huge
upended pieces of concrete sitting every which way in my
driveway for days. My husband actually fell trying to navigate his way into the house and broke a rib. When
they finally poured the new driveway it was disastrous; a
terrible finish, mismatched aggregate, cold joints and a
brush finished concrete sidewalk that was supposed to be
aggregate to match the driveway. Like the other reviewer
said, they pay no attention to detail and were very
careless. They broke sprinkler heads and irrigation pipes
and chipped the edges of my garage floor. Kermit took
the blame for doing the front sidewalk wrong but tried to shift the blame for the driveway on the
Needless to say, the whole driveway and sidewalk had to be ripped out again and the whole no show, inadequate equipment experience began again. Days dragged into weeks and very little was accomplished. My husband would call several times a day to find out where they were and all he got was lip service from Kermit. We finally had to dismiss him from the job and hire a new company to finish tearing out the driveway and complete our job.
Thankfully we found someone who knew what they were
doing and had the right equipment, tools and highly
competent workers and a supervisor who stayed on the
job to make sure everything went as planned. I had to put one star on this review but that is saying too much for this
company. If you need concrete work, stay clear of this
company. I know this review is long but it would be even
longer if I had to list all of the other problems this company
caused and the extra expenses incurred in order to get
the job redone.
driveway for days and we had to cut through bushes and our lawn to get to the front door. The driveway they finally poured was disastrous; it set up too quickly, cold joints and mismatched aggregate from two loads. The front sidewalk which was supposed to match the driveway aggregate was finished with a plain concrete in a brush finish by mistake.
Beware! – I just recently had a driveway torn up and a new one put in by Kermit (the owner) and his crew. His price to do the job was reasonable but now that it's finished I would not recommend him to anyone. The driveway is only a few weeks old and it's already cracking and there are ruts starting wherever the vehicles are parked and the top of the asphalt is chalky in areas. We believe its because the asphalt was poured to thin and the base layer was not done properly and they pay NO ATTENTION to detail! And if they have to come back to either finish the job or fix what they did wrong expect some delays.
If you're just resurfacing a driveway they may be the people for the job.
We would like to call him back to fix this but the whole experience with them so far was unpleasant and very frustrating for us. We sank $4800 into this and feel we were ripped off.
Very quick and great work.... – I just had a drive way completed. They did a 12x70 foot section in one day for approx. $1900. They were also able to come out for a free quote the day I called and complete the whole job the next day. I would recommend this company to my friends.
