We contracted for a stamped patio and removal and replacement of our driveway and front walk for $10,000. Work was paid for and completed on 16 Aug 2013.We also asked that the concrete was sealed. On the phone I was told it might cost $350, but when the contract was signed he said $180 should do the whole project because he was only asking for materials- I made sure he said everything was covered by $180.On 17 Aug, a young man came and basically poured sealer on the stamped patio, but did nothing to the drive or front walk. It took days for it to dry. My husband who was here for the beginning of the sealing said he had two 5 gallon pails. He asked for payment of $180 after my husband left when I was busy so I didn't realize what had NOT been done. I called several times last summer to find out when the job would be finished and was told it would cost another $500+ for the remainder. One day the same person who poured the sealant showed up to say I had to pay first for the driveway. I was told the boss (on vacation) could show me the numbers, but he never did. I was later told by the younger person and the older boss on the phone that the $180 check would not be cashed. It was earlier this year - 2013.I called the business and was told by the owner someone would get hold of me. No one called; so I recalled him and put the request on their web site.The several phone calls I have had since have not been with the older owner, but a younger person who insists the 2 $99 pails of sealer were only for the patio. He eventually agreed to send me the $180 - it has been more than 2 weeks and I have no check.The area paved was 2032 sq ft. I have gone to Lowes and priced Quikrete Acrylic Cure and Sealer at $18.56 per gallon. Minimum coverage is 150 sq ft; maximum coverage is 200 sq ft. At these rates the amount needed for the entire project is 13.55 to 10.16 gallons. Even at these prices, there is no way $500+ was required to finish the project if the first 10 gallons were not wasted.
