Best Stamped Concrete Inc
How do I begin to tell you what a FABULOUS job the crew did at my house. I first want to speak of the Owner: Allen Roeber and the Employees on the crew. Allen was a super nice guy, he was friendly, knowledgeable and understood exactly what I wanted done. He gave a very fair estimate and based on the estimate and my vibe from him, I chose Best Stamped Concrete. Professionalism to me is super important. Allen actually was able to come out and quote my job sooner than anticipated and I really appreciated him coming sooner. The job was able to start a few days sooner because he had a schedule change from a very large job and could fit me in sooner. BIG PLUS for me I was thrilled. The crew started on Monday morning. They were PROMPT and they were so very nice. I will call them all GENTLEMEN not workers, because they were ALL respectful, kind, nice and very concerned with making me happy and doing a good job. I have been in customer service my entire working life and I must say the crew was customer service 100%. They were kind and answered my questions without hesitation. They didn't mind me watching and learning what they were doing. They were so very careful on my property making sure everything was done without any damage. They ALL showed great pride in their work. I noticed how very well they all got along and their work flowed like a well oiled machine. Day One: Three man crew arrived. They removed the old concrete which was to me a hard job, but they did it with care and ease. They framed up the area where the concrete pour would go. They ran laser level on the project to be sure the concrete would drain to the proper places. Day Two: Seven man crew arrived today. They arrived promptly, dumped gravel into the areas to be built up, placed the rebar all across the areas and began the concrete pour. They worked very efficiently with their 7 man team on pour day. They held up a plastic sheet each time the motorized concrete bucket dumped the load and there were no splatters on anything. I was very impressed again with their care and efficiency. They worked on setting the concrete into place and at the end of Day Two it was more beautiful than I had imagined. I had a gorgeous patio that flawlessly transitioned into the driveway right up to the carport. The job was more beautiful than I had imagined. Day Three: Two men returned to complete the job. They cut the control joints into the concrete in a nice even pattern which will allow for any future inevitable cracks to be guided into the correct places. They cleaned up 100% of everything from my yard. They cleaned off the concrete dust from where they had cut the control joints. They pressure washed the existing section of driveway where their machinery had tracked dirt and debris. When they left there was no evidence they had been at my home except for the following: 1. A Beautiful, extraordinary patio and driveway 2. A lasting impression of the gentlemen who worked on my project. 3. My desire to tell my friends that I highly recommend Best Stamped Concrete I realize that they poured plain concrete at my house; but I can imagine how gorgeous and well done their work would have been if I had the high quality stained, stamped concrete. If a company takes pride in the small things they do that means they do even better on their greater projects. MEN JOB WELL DONE!!!!! I AM GRATEFUL- HAPPY-THRILLED!! The job is more beautiful than we ever imagined!!!! My husband and family are just blown away!!!!!
Tips & Advices
Resurfacing, where a contractor removes and replaces the top layer of concrete, is a middle ground between multiple patch jobs and a complete replacement.

Wet concrete can irritate the skin or cause first-, second-, or third-degree chemical burns. Cement dust contains silica, which damages the lungs and can lead to cancer or silicosis. Many concrete mixtures contain cement, so homeowners should be careful if contractors create the concrete on site. Anyone who touches wet concrete or dust should wash their skin with soap and cold water.
Colored concrete is created by blending liquid, granular or powdered iron oxide pigments with natural concrete. These pigments are either mined directly from the earth or manufactured in a chemical plant.
