JO Grande or John Paul represent himself as Custom Concrete Design. I don’t recommend this contractor to anyone. He doesn’t have a competent crew and they did a very poor job. The crew failed to follow what he had agreed to in the contract, laying down a bad base and using a cheaper wire mesh than the one I was promised. Despite the fact that we had agreed to a design together, I had to change the design due his incorrect estimation at the beginning. Midway through the construction the contractors ruined a flower box that was part of the design and never fixed it.
Our contract also stated that the job would be finished in 1.5 weeks. We were required to remove our AC unit to make room for the crew’s equipment. But the contractor failed to meet the start date of the project. The half-finished project took over 4 weeks, leaving us without AC in the summer heat.
Their crew is careless and messy - they did not leave a guard to protect our front door when power washing the concrete (even after they were asked to use some kind of cover), leaving permanent water damage and scratches on our door. Our lawn was littered with waste and concrete remnants because they did not use a plywood cover before putting down the concrete and power washing it.
This contractor only finished part of the project and did it so poorly we ended the contract and paid for the work that had already been done. Because of their incompetence we had to hire a different contractor and pay more to fix the mistakes and messy work done by this team.
