We got A LOT of quotes, and most came in around the same price. The difference is in what JJR provided. Most companies just offered to rip out the existing steps, then put in new ones overtop. Having just purchased the home and seeing a sag, I knew it was the stairs foundation, and JJR was the 1 of two companies to see that as well.
The poured Sona tubes, added a rebar base, regraded, and then finished it off with flagstone. They worked with us on design ideas to ensure the finished product was perfect and to be honest their workmanship is second to none. They REALLY REALLY take pride in their work.
The side of the house was changed from interlocking stone with drainage issues to a elevated regraded cement walkway with a curb. Concrete steps were added to replace builder block steps, and they were done with a proper foundation as well.
What impressed me the most was the constant feedback, and professionalism. Constant communication, constant desire for feedback and on schedule. The solutions we had offered to us from others we all less work, and similar cost, but would NOT have solved the problems...
Our main contact Julian is aware of what it takes to have repeat business and we 100% will be using them again.
Joe the main contractor knows all the tricks in the trade and is SUPER friendly to boot.
Get 3-5 quotes and see the difference yourself, but I highly recommend choosing JJR. Professional, honest, hard working, and get it done right... Not the cheapest but the difference is insignificant given the quality of workmanship/solution they will provide.
