I was greatly impressed with Nate Schumm and his company. I got two additional quotes and decided to go with Nate. The reason for going with Nate’s company was the attention to details they would provide and additional steps they use as standard practice with their concrete work. I had a water run-off problem and he provided suggestions that would solve that problem. His work was completed in two days with the forms removed on a third, just as promised since this was a Holiday weekend. This time frame for completion was three days on the other two quotes.. Nate installed 4000# mix with fiber mesh and used expansion joints where needed. He used #4 rebar as well. He prepared and compacted the subgrade and applied his concrete at a semi-slope for water run off. He applied a concrete seal which allowed the concrete to cure at a slower rate. The steps and walkway turned out perfect and the clean up was perfect as well. He completed my landscaping and I now have a front lawn of green grass. Also in the back, the water will run off towards my back yard rather than towards my house. The drain tile on the side of the house which he installed per his suggestions will quadruple the ability for water channeling away from my house. It looks great with the river rock he added on top and in other areas around the house. The job was finished on time and on price (I also was given the Angie’s discount per his advertisement in the Angie’s Magazine which was on top of the competitive price he offered). I want to say one more thing here: My neighbor did cement work while in college. He watched Nate and his crew do the project. My neighbor said this group did it “RIGHT”. No short cuts were taken like some fly by night contractors do and Nate’s crew did work quality additional to what most companies provide. That neighbor then hired Nate and his crew to replace is current driveway which was completed in the same manner Nate did mine. I have a happy neighbor now too. I think that says a lot. I absolutely will use Nate and his crew again. I will recommend his work to my family and personal friends.
Schumm broke up and removed the old sidewalk, rebuilt the base and poured the new sidewalk. Everything went very well…it took less than half a day.
They were on time, polite, explained how things were going to progress, attentive to details, cleaned up afterwards, and were patient with my kids. I couldn’t be happier.
“Schumm was professional and easy to communicate with. Schumm wasn’t the least expensive contractor but provided superior service The replaced areas look great, everything was cleaned up and sealed as promised. We will contact Schumm again when we need additional work performed.”
