We used Go Concrete Design for a large project in our back yard. I absolutely mirror exactly what the OP said! I was amazed how smoothly the project went. David, the owner couldn't have been better. His employees are prompt, polite and know what they are doing. So far, so good on the product holding up. It's been about 7 months.

I don't know Concrete Designs, but Custom Ram Designs are great! See their Internet Site.

BTW, if you're looking for a general contractor (GC), AND you have plenty of time and don't care about if the GC completes on time, is detail oriented, & makes sure the products you want arrive on time, & are correctly ordered & inspected, then hire Corban Construction. Corban missed it's deadline on the addition, had to be constantly reminded of contractual requirements/specifications, and delivered and installed defective or damaged products that had to be re-ordered and installed--16 wks on a 10-12 wk job.

Default Corban Construction--Word to Wise--Be Aware & Alert

Corban Construction doesn't do good work, keep its word, and is just as bad. They didn't follow the architectural drawing plans that the ARC and Bldg Dept approved. They were inattentive to details of the plans, the written contract, and the work. The work was unsupervised, not checked for quality or completeness after steps in the projects were "finished," failed to meet timeframes for ordering the contracted upgraded items which caused construction delays and errors in construction, and damaged and poor quality products were installed and then, after I argued, they were removed and replaced. The job took five months, but was supposed to be done in two. In the end, to complete the project, I had to hire separate contractors to fix issues Corban couldn't or wouldn't fix to finish the project.
Bad, bad, bad job. Beware this company.
The owner, Paul Caruso, seems like a good man, but the work he does/has done doesn't measure up at all.

Go Concrete did our lanai and front potch in july or august. Most beautiful in ALL of TV, IMHO!!! We have not noticed any change or deterioration, but ours is under cover. If i win the lottery, i will pull out all flooring in the house and have Go Concrete finish all floors. That is how happy i am.

Thumbs up Go Concrete Designs - A Quality Company

Go Concrete recently did our driveway and lanai. Unlike some other highly advertised cement design companies, this company is A+ rated with the better business bureau of Central Florida. Since our work is new I can't answer to how it holds up over time, but I can tell you about the process and dealing with the owner and workers. Alan is the person who comes out and quotes your job. He's personable, knowledgeable and takes plenty of time to answer your questions. He came out to our home twice. Just before work was to start we had some concerns and the owner of the company actually came out and spent about a half hour with my husband and resolved our concerns. The actual installers are wonderful. They will work with you until your satisfied, no matter how long it takes. Unlike some other companies who try the color sample on your actual designed driveway or lanai, Go Concrete makes up sample boards and uses them to work with you for colors. This makes sense, because if you're doing the color sample on the actual project and you go too dark, now its harder to adjust. The crew is extremely neat and has a great attention to detail. They put up plastic to protect your wall and doors. Your rocks or mulch is pushed back so no product gets on them. Before pushing the rock or mulch back they actually paint the sides of the driveway so that if the rock/mulch moves you still have the color everywhere you can see. They mixed up some extra grout paint and left it with us in case they needed to come back to touch up. They did that so they would be assured of an exact color match. I can't say enough positive things about this company. I'm an extremely exacting person and they worked with me until everything was exactly as I wanted it. They did it with professionalism, personality, exactness and neatness.

Five workers arrived Monday and spent the day grinding off the painted surface down to bare concrete. The next day a masonry slurry was spread and then their artist Angel and Nacho went to work free handing a flag stone pattern in the partially set re-surfaced material. After two and one half days, we had a new driveway and side walk and through it all, the contractor exceeded our expectations. Their laborers were on time every day, worked very hard with no time wasted, they continually keep the work area clean, all edges of the treated areas were trimmed and neat. Test panels were made so we could actually test and see the color schemes of what was chosen. We can't say enough about the good job this contractor did. Life is good!
TV is so large - you could be anywhere... But I'd bet you are on Dafoe off Pinellas in Gilchrist. We pass by a home that just had a flagstone pattern completed on the drive.
We had a paver drive and walkway done by Paradise Pavers last year - SO pleased and 3 other neighbors had theirs done by Paradise with our recommendation. We had pavers done as concrete designs/paint were not our choice = $for$ we felt pavers a better investment.
BUT - if you are on Dafoe - WOW, what a great design and job. It looks great!

And yes - it's beneficial to see a strong contractor recommendation. Not sure if we have anything like "Angie's List" on ToTV here - but would benice to have a lookup for services that TVrs recommend - or not.

Go Concrete just did my Lanai last week. We wanted a different design than they had done in the past. No Problem. They showed up on time every morning, with a phone call from Alan about a half hour before to let us know to expect them. They had to deal with a few rain delays and did a tremendous job at a very reasonable cost. Will use them again to do my driveway and should have had them do my garage!
Go Concrete....Great Work!

Default Go Concrete....Great Work!

We purchased a home in 2013 & Go Concrete had done the driveway & sidewalk. It still looks great, & we were told that it should be sealed again in 3 years after installation which is this year for us.
