  • John said on April 3, 2014
    all I have to say is good luck concrete labor prices have been the same for at least 10 years what was a lot of money is now border line welfare. Be aware any GC willing to hire you prob dosnt pay his bills or is on a slow pay schedule or paying less then what you are worth . It takes about 3 years to become established advertising usually dose not pay for itself .There was a stamped concrete boom when I started now every retard with a trowel is doing and doing it cheap. And customers do not care about quality until after the job is done then they usually call me back and ask if I will testify in court against another company , and of course I will for the price of doing the job.
