I definitely recommend this company! Locally owned and Chris was Fantastic! I really enjoyed his eagerness and willingness to work WITH us every step of the way. He really wanted to make sure we got the product WE wanted, not just another job to get done. I appreciate his communication and understanding of the job. His crew came and labored the first day and poured the next and we LOVED the product and felt the pricing was extremely fair and reasonable. However, do make sure you have your plans in order for your irrigation and drainage, as we did not. Totally our bad though. We definitely plan on having him do our future products!

Well done. Clean up was unacceptable to my wife and a option within the job that was recommended and I accepted was not completed.

Homeowners Beware! I have completed multiple remodels/upgrades to my home over the past 5 years, and have always had something positive to say about the experience/work completed by these contractors. However, I recently hired an Exceptional Concrete Company, owned by Chris Arellano (Not BBB Accredited), and cannot find one positive thing to say about the interactions with the owner or the work they performed. It has been 3 months since the concrete was poured, and here are some of the issues the owner refused to fix/complete. Note: All quotes below taken directly from text messages; apparently he would not say them during face to face interaction.1- Concreted two 2x4s into the concrete slab. Refused to fix. 2- Multiple gaps in sidewalk and slab. Said it was not a structural issue, and he would have to unnecessarily fix. Commented that the gaps will be covered by dirt anyways. Refused to fix all. 3- The retaining wall is crooked and offset. Stacked two 2x4s (vs. single 2x8) for an 8 inch high wall. Refused to fix. 4- Tossed concrete/water mix waste and sludge across my lawn. Refused to clean up. 5- Left dozens of metal stakes and multiple 2x4s with exposed nails on the property for 2 weeks; endangering children, pets, and personal property. Had to have hauled away. 6- It did not match the existing concrete color/type as promised. Cannot fix without complete tear-out. After asking multiple times if he was going to fix these issues, the owner stated *I hate dealing with homeowners* and walked off my property; reinforcing that he is not a man of his word. Based on all these issues, it is my opinion this company and owner seriously lack competency, skill, work ethic, professionalism, and respect for myself and my property. When I mentioned that he will be reviewed accordingly, he threatened. I will take legal action if that occurs share this in the hope this experience does not happen to you, helps your research, and allows you to please choose wisely.

Response from Company:

David, We do apologize for the inconvenience and unfortunately there is much left out of this story. We take pride in our work and creating beautiful projects homeowners are thrilled with (as you can see in our multitude of stellar reviews). I actually love working with homeowners, as that as a huge part of what we do. Every once in a while, we run across homeowners that are difficult to work with... unfortunately that was you. We poured the wall (which was supervised by you all day). Prior to our departure I asked if everything looked good and you responded that you were happy. I'm not sure how you watched us work all day and later decided to change your mind. I came back with one of my guys to your evaluate your concerns and finish cleanup and your behavior was very aggressive. Over $500.00 worth of my materials on your property/tools had been removed. You stated you would not return my property to me until all of your concerns had been addressed. Refusing to be threatened and realizing I, and my employee, were in an increasingly volatile situation, chose to leave. This is not behavior we typically come across. I apologize if you feel the situation was not handled correctly. But I think it is fair to say, you did not help the situation with your behavior.

Chris was attentive to our requests . He kept in touch with us during the project since we were out of town. The workers were professional. Our new driveway came out very well.

This company is very reliable and on time. Very nice to work with, great people and hard working professionals.

Chris was quick to respond to my inquiry. Emailed me a detailed estimate that matched what we talked about. His crew constructed the forms, poured the cement, and cleaned up after themselves all in one day. The end result is beautiful and I couldn't be happier!!!

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
