Review by Mike H. in Chanhassen, MN
We are writing this review based on the quality of work received from Mike Hage Distinctive Concrete and Masonry. As a result of the safety concerns and poor quality of the finished product we eventually had to take Mike to Minnesota Conciliation and District Court and won at every level. He now owes us over $9,500 but refuses to pay. We are sharing our story so you can decide for yourself if he is the type of individual you want to work with. In August of 2015 we had Mike install a new stamped concrete patio and apply an overlay to our existing front walkway. We chose Mike based on a competitive bid and his 30+ years of experience. We would guess that after that many years in business he has many satisfied customers but also assume that sometimes his projects do not go according to plan. If that happens to you do not expect to have any resolution provided by Mike or his company. Mike will say that we were difficult to work with, that he attempted to fix the problems, that he has many satisfied clients, etc. This is his standard response to the complaints previously filed by others. The last time we talked we offered to never contact him again if he was willing to put our project on his website as an example of his workmanship. He immediately declined due to the many structural and safety concerns involved. We posted pictures on another well know review site if you want to see an example of the work Mike provided to us. The project started out fine and we even complimented him on the professional nature of his crew. The many problems started almost immediately after the project was completed as outlined below. 1. From the beginning, the surface was extremely slippery when wet and once the snow started to fall we were unable to use our front walk or new patio (the two are connected so that is why I am indicating the slippery patio). If it rained you had to use another door and the homeowner had many falls with even a light dusting of snow. We contacted Mike and he said that these types of surfaces can be slippery and suggested that we use sand. This is the main entrance to our house and we were unable to use it for most of the winter even though it was kept clear. Other contractors refused to use the walk and we ended up having to post a warning to visitors. Mike did try to put on a new top coat for the walkway the next year but it started to peel within a month and is now flaking off in many places. The largest flaking section is almost 2 feet across. This is not the quality work he claims to provide. 2. The overall finished product was of poor quality. He did not properly finish the edge of the patio and attempted a quick patch. He used a warped blade to cut the joints (only admitted this after it was brought to his attention) so the lines are crooked and we have an edge to edge crack in the patio that occurred within the first year. The patio is also so sloped that our lawn chairs slide off in a wind. These are the heavy "by the yard" chairs that normally take a lot to move.  We attempted to work with Mike and his final suggestion was that we pay him more money to replace the original work. All comments above can be proven by case numbers, copies of court orders, and letters from both the Sheriff's office and the Minnesota Secretary of State office. This legal process started in December of 2016 and as of July 10, 2017 neither Mike nor a representative of his company have responded to any official documents.

Beware. If you want to be kept in the loop about the job you hired them for it wont happen. I sent them a deposit to have my steps replaced. The deposit was sent express mail 3 times so they would have to sign for. But know one is there at there office to receive it so it was returned. The secretary came by to get it. Weeks and weeks go by we hear nothing about a start date. So my husband call a few times I gets no call back c mon at least call back. So we sent a email. Wow we get a response. Finally demo gets done framing didn't get started for about a week even though the guy who did the demo said someone will be there right after he was done. When the framing finally got done it felt like forever again to get the concrete poured. Every time it seems like they forgot about the job at our house I d email them then they would do some work. Another thing they did was they left the wood in our basement when they did the framing. And the sign they put up to say who they are they left it standing.. They didn't even take there sign. When I emailed them about there sign a few weeks later Mike Hage said I can just throw it away. Wow what professionalism.

Review by in Plymouth, MN
They arrived when I expected them. They sawed out the bad part of an existing patio section (5'x7'); busted out an adjacent defective concrete section (5'x7') and formed up the new section to be poured. They poured the large section, made up of the part sawed out and the busted out section; so, the new poured section is about 7'x7'. They protected the newly poured area with a barricade to protect the new concrete as it set up. After it was hard, they removed the barricade, removed the forming material and cleaned up the area. A job well done!

Just a couple of things~~~related to clean up. I found several nails around the front of the house where the steps were put it, also in order to get to the faucet in the front of my house they cut down the shrubs, and then just left them. No big deal but just an fyi.

Communication and pre-planning could have been better. Had to review some previous decisions with the work crew when they arrived that probably should have already been recorded. There was some confusion about the pattern. But in the end, it looked very nice, the crew was professional and qualified and Mike was responsive to questions and concerns.

Mike and his team were very patient with us as we debated colors and finishes. They were excellent to work with and fine craftsmen. We actually asked them to complete another unrelated project for us.

Tinted/stamped concrete was an excellent option to enhance the front entry of our home. Attention to detail was great.

Fair estimate. Showed up on time. Completed work on time. We had a problem with a heavy cement truck that left ruts in our drive. Mike negotiated a deal to get that fixed. Highly recommended.
