Do not hire Jeff or any company he is associated with – Tristar Contracting, Briant Construction or whatever company name he is currently using. He does shoddy work, and when you need repairs, he will abscond. We hired him for a major backyard stamped concrete patio project in the summer of 2013. He insisted on pouring the concrete on a weekend we were not home. After just one winter, the concrete began to crack and break up, and in one section it heaved and sank. At the job completion Jeff told us to contact him if we have any problems. We phoned and emailed him repeatedly, but he did not return any of our messages. Upon inspection, and verified by other stamped concrete contractors, we discovered there is no wire mesh in the concrete. This is standard practise and is what holds the concrete together. The concrete is also thin, and where it heaved, is hollow underneath. Jeff does not stand behind his work. He is a smooth talking salesman. Do not fall for his pitch or you will be sorry.
