Installed new enlarged front porch. Crew was very good & detailed. Enjoyed watching them work. Sales support with Ron was easy and clarification of specs was easily done. Would hire them again for additional work.
Response by Prater Concrete: Jim, so glad we could make your project an enjoyable one! The Prater Family

This is a family-owned business and at least one of the brothers was there for every step. They were most definitely knowledgeable, and had the crew and equipment to get this job done. They showed up when they said they would, and stayed until the concrete had set up to where they wanted before they left, even though it was after dark. My new driveway looks great, but I'm still going to give it a couple more days to cure before I use it. I absolutely recommend them.
Response by Prater Concrete: Paul & Carolyn, it was such a pleasure to work with your family. The Prater Family

If I could I would give this company no stars. Company was hired to stain existing sidewalk and stamp concrete and stain our porch. The sidewalk which was supposed to be a multi color brown and copper is a mud color, and the porch which was to be stamped in a wood pattern has visible swirls underneath the pattern, the color which was to be walnut is a cross between baby poo-brown and yellow. As if that was not enough, the stain was applied in such a way that nothing is uniform. There are gouges in the concrete where it appears to have dried before the stamp was used, there is stain and sealer all over the bottom of our home where the porch meets the wall. Ryan Praetor came out to initially address our concerns and just managed to make it worse and now won't answer calls. Unfortunately I saw all the bad reviews about this company after I hired them. I had done my homework but confused the company I wanted with this one. Please if you want even a decent job, don't use this company.

My concern was due to an erosion problem, so I needed them to redirect the water. Part of what they did was good, but the other half was not good. When I try to reach out to this company, they will not answer or respond to me.
Response by Prater Concrete: Gene, we appreciate your feedback. We redirected the water the only logical way possible away from your chicken coop in the manner both parties agreed to. Unfortunately, with the mass amount of rain, we had during the time period it was inevitable that water may get into the chicken coop. The height of the concrete was poured to match the opening. We suggest you look into having the area graded better to help with redirecting water.

Review by in Frisco, TX
One minor glitch one employee gave us one price but when it came time to do the actual work, we were charged an additional $250 because the concrete was deeper than had been estimated.
Response by Prater Concrete: Thanks for your feedback Tony. We strive to give the most comprehensive on site estimates we can. Unfortunately, the additional small charge was necessary afterwards because the discovery of the depth couldn't be seen until we started the excavation. Industry standards are that driveways are poured at a 4'' thickness not like your driveway was well over 4'', which was creates a greater tear out work and a deeper base material laid down and a larger amount of debris that we hauled away.

Seal of Approval

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)
