I had hoped to post this morning to announce that the concrete had been removed from my back yard. Unfortunately, it looks like a I made a bad choice in the person I was hiring off of craigslist. On Tuesday afternoon, he called to let me know that he had extra concrete and would be happy to repour the driveway approach for free. What!?!
Apparently we had two completely different conversations on the phone and he had forgotten every detail and decided we were replacing the driveway approach instead. When he came by to see what I actually wanted him to do, he quoted a price that was almost double the original estimate. Needless to say, I canceled the job and am calling around for other estimates. This time I'll also make sure to get an email confirmation so I have something in print.
I may have to get a jackhammer yet!
