.

On July 1, we had an existing driveway removed and redone. A bobcat was used. Since we were not home at the time, we were not able to stop this. When we brought the devastation of our lawn to the owner's attention he said that all we had to do was "roll the sod back". Well, there is no way the average person could do this. We have had to contact businesses to do this for us. The quotes we received were $970 and $1200. The quote we received from the person KAR construction suggested was the highest at over $1300. This is going to involve replacing five feet of our lawn on both sides of the driveway. We knew there would be some repair to do on our lawn, based on what we have seen with the same work in our neighborhood. All of those owners did it by themselves with a few rolls of sod. This damage is over and above a normal removal and installation. Also, we were told that it was necessary for us to open our garage door. This resulted in some wet cement being sprayed on the hood of one of the cars inside. One of the employees took it upon himself to go in the garage and wipe it off with a rag which caused scratches. We would have never done this. We would have sprayed it off with water. A person should know that when you rub gritty material into paint, it scratches. We saw the employee come out of the access door of the garage with a rag in his hands because we were out on the patio. I think we surprised him and he told us that he was cleaning off our lawnmower. There was nothing on the lawnmower, just the car. Within the first week there was a crack in the walkway from the house to the drive. When brought to the attention of the owner, his resolution to the problem was to spread a handful of some dust into the crack which did nothing. Only after we made a complaint to the Better Business Bureau was the owner willing to come and ''repair'' the crack. The only thing he did was to put some calk in it which only made the area more noticeable.

Would never recommend this business!!

GREAT COMPANY. They actually took the time to answer all my questions. They finished the job on time and after 3 years, my concrete driveway looks fabulous. I live in Wisconsin, where the weather is horrible for concrete and so far no cracks. I DEFINITELY recommend this company.

I would not even click 1 star for this company.
BUYER BEWARE! This company says they are there after the sale to fix any issues but they want you to pay them again for the fix.
This company is beyond horrible.
They say Concrete Cracks- Must be the unskilled job they do that causes that.
We installed a fire pit. This was not cut properly, half the amount of rebar installed, after a day of getting the stain color perfect he came back two days later and sealed the patio and it ended up 4 times darker than original color. Its almost black.
We let our fire pit cure for 3 weeks and the first use it cracks ini many places....Now we have huge cracks..not hairline cracks ...I can put a pencil in these cracks.
I would suggest looking at ANYONE but KAR Construction. I would run the other direction. And beware- They are a subcontractor for Home Depot so make sure they are not installing your work. He is satisfied with cracks.
This install Sept 2009. Cracked Oct 2009. Still trying to get him to fix this and BBB isnt working either- June 2010.

We had a driveway and patio installed and in less than 9 months the driveway and patio had a crack. not to mention concrete on my siding and then sealing on the siding. Lines on our driveway that won't come out from when they marked it with red and then sawed the stressed lines, never cleaned the driveway, then sealed it. We are totally disapointed.
