This is an update to my initial review below. The patio is now done and it is SPECTACULAR! Every aspect of the work was done to the highest standards. I was impressed with the materials and methods used as well as the calibre of each team of workers. A friend was by this week who had had Pro Concrete and another company out to quote his concrete patio and he went with the other company because they were cheaper. He is regretting it now given the poor quality of work that was done and the poor solutions offered. So Pro Concrete's quote may seem higher, but knowing the excellence in workmanship and customer service, it is worth every penny. I recommend Pro Concrete unreservedly.
I'll write in later once the job is done, but I wanted to comment now on the initial aspects of service. I left messages for 7 concrete patio companies 2 weeks ago and only 2 have returned my call (I get that people are busy, but a quick call to say "we'll be in touch later in the month" would have been appreciated). Raquel from Pro Concrete called back within 24 hours and had George out to quote in less than a week. George was amazing. Very thorough and knowledgeable, didn't try to upsell unnecessary items (even told me that a couple things I thought would be good to add weren't worth doing, he would do them if I wanted, but he didn't think visually it would make much difference). Also very friendly and personable. The other company that came to quote took a few days to call back and when they did, they called at 7am and asked if they could come out right then. Although that company did a number of our neighbours' patios, we decided to go with Pro Concrete. They were more expensive but George's attention to detail was exemplary. Between Raquel's and George's service levels, I am anticipating that all aspects of Pro Concrete's installation and subsequent follow up will be similarly excellent. I will post another review once the work is done in the next 6 weeks!
