The parging alongside the driveway of my hundred-year-old house wasn’t too bad; needed some patching. However, when I went to look all around the house, I discovered a major crack, including in the cement block underlay, at a usually out-of-sight corner. I emailed Conterra for a quote. They were quick to respond with a phone call to set up an appointment. Sean, the estimator, had a very good look and gave me a price. I agreed. Later Conterra called with a date for the work to be done. The workmen arrived on time. We went over what was to be done, including the fact that I wanted the driveway side to look uniform, which meant patching where necessary and then skimming all of it to match. Once they went to work, chipping off the old parging at the back corner, it was discovered that the crack was far deeper and wider than anyone had suspected — enormous! I was appalled. No problem. Another employee arrived with some wood for making a form for the large amount of cement that would be needed. When everything was finished, it all looked spectacular (except for the guys who did the work in 7 degree temperatures, who looked tired and cold!). What surprised me was that the final bill, despite the extent of the work being more than envisioned, was the same as the estimate I had been given. I highly recommend Conterra.
