I hired a construction company from home advisor.com that claimed to have over twenty years exp. with concrete work. We hired them, after checking that they have had no complaints, been in bus. since 2009. Sounded good... The repair of the cracks seemed to be done very well, the problem was in the resurfacing work. The thin layer of concrete topping is so thin you can see the old surface through it in spots. It has just been a week since the "final coat" was applied and there are already small cracks showing up. The salesman is a fast-talker and denys he can see the old finish showing through, he said he "guarantees" that it is 1/4 inch thick, because "you cannot trowel it if is it thinner". We have had a few hard rains since the concrete was laid, during its first week, it almost seemed to wash some of it away. The salesman wants to call it finished and said we need to seal it right away.... he claims that is not part of his job, but admits it is the final step for newly poured concrete. But a paint and construction expert from Lowes that we spoke to said new concrete has to cure for thirty days before we seal it.... Now we are so confused. The man who applied the final concrete layer did such a sloppy job, he smeared concrete all over the edges of the white stone that frames our pool. We are so unhappy with the job they did I feel the only thing I can do now is try to go around the fast-talking salesman and get to his boss. Any and all advice would be appreciated.
