Orazio is a true craftsman who did a beautiful job rebuilding my driveway and adding a new front stairway. There were some delays but few people understand how complex even a relatively small project can be for a concrete contractor. Weather can have a significant impact on scheduling as you cannot pour concrete in the rain. As well the cement industry in Alberta is basically controlled by 3 huge companies so everyone must buy from them. Right now the cement companies are extremely busy due to all the road construction so can also cause scheduling problems as small jobs are normally lower priority for any ready-mix delivery, leading to further delays for the crew on site. In any event Orazio’s Company Tora Concrete showed up to do the job when two others didn’t even call me back and completed the entire job in 3 days.

Thank you for your highly insightful review, Cliff. I appreciate you sharing the conditions facing contractors, which coupled with the extreme difficulty in finding reliable, skilled workers and the short work season, makes it challenging to always meet clients' timeline expectations. However, clients like you make it all worthwhile.
