In the past, I've used Big Box stores for my home improvement needs until I had a few problems with the companies they sub-contract with. Since then, I have tried to use only local contractors with whom I can deal with personally.

This year I needed to have my pitted, chipped and flaked patio replaced. I checked local concrete contractors and looked up their ratings on the BBB website. One contractor, Catalano Concrete appeared to be just what I was looking for.

I called and within a day, the owner, who has been in the business for 35 years, came over to look at the job and give me an estimate. He spent a lot of time with me discussing options as well as taking numerous measurements to ensure my previous grading problems were addressed. His estimate was reasonable and we went to contract.

Two days after I obtained the appropriate permits, Sal Catalano and his team were at the house, meeting the inspector and ready for work. Within two days, the old patio was removed and the new patio installed. Two days later the crew came back to break down the forms and clean up. The new patio is great and just what we wanted. The back yard was cleaned up and so no one would know that a crew of 6 or 7 workmen did any work at all.

Sal and his team were not only competitive in price and professional, but very helpful in offering suggestions to improve the overall product. I would strongly recommend Catalano Concrete for anyone who may be contemplating concrete work.

Sal showed up on time to give us an estimate. Told us all we would have to do - very little. Called two weeks later to check on village permit. When I told him I had the permit in hand, he showed up within 30 minutes to dig out our old porch. The next day they poured the new porch - slightly bigger at Sal's suggestion, with the new walkway. It is absolutely beautiful. A great on-time job. I would definitely recommend Catalano Concrete Construction to anyone! Definitely 5 stars and then some!!!!

Catalano Concrete installed new brick steps for a front door entrance. The workers helped me choose the brick that pulled the whole look together: matching siding, the new door, and existing plants. I ended up with a beautiful entrance to my home. He kept all appointments on time and he and his crew did a great job. He aways answered my phone calls in a few minutes!

Our Front stoop was in really bad shape & Catalano concrete was able to salvage our rails to get them repaired while they broke out the front stoop & Walk which only took 2hrs the guy that did it was so fast & amazing! what a transformation the next day they removed all the boulders put rebar back in the stoop & framed it out. The 3rd day they poured! its amazing we could walk on the front stoop after 2 days! it looks great & I would def. recommend them to anyone! Fast & great to work with!

Dear Sal,

We would like to say thank you for fixing the sidewalk block in front of our house.  We were so disappointed when we found the words and drawings that had been written in the freshly poured concrete.  Thank you for coming  back and finding a way fo fix it up- at NO CHARGE.  We really appreciate it.  It is so rare to find a company or individual who will put forth the extra effort to make things right.  Thank you so much.  We will be sure to call you in the future with any
concrete work we need done.

Not only prompt but brought out a few ideas I had not thought of that really added to the project.

You did a terrific job of installing our
concrete garage floor and driveway.  Top notch service and exceptional craftsmanship.  We also appreciate you keeping us in touch with every aspect of the job.  All of our neighbors have commented on how nice our driveway looks.  We highly recommend your services! 

Thanks again,

The project was done within a week and the finished job is beautiful.  Brand new steps and walk which were much in need of reapair.  Mr. Catalano was very informative and explained what they would do and was very polite.

Catalano was excellent. Very professional and excellent communication during the project. I would also use them for a larger project (driveway or garage concrete).

I would definitely use Catalano Concrete again.  From the beginning they did what they said they would do. They returned calls promptly and answered my questions to my complete satisfaction.  They came out and gave me a quote within a day of contacting them.  They gave me a starting time for the work after the contract was signed and started on time!  The work they did was excellent!  It was a pleasure to do business with a company that takes pride in their work.

I cannot explain how happy I am about the job you guys did.  Everything was done perfect and left clean.  Thank you very much for doing such a good job!!  My grandmother can’t wait until the weather is nicer so she can have her tea on the new patio.

Catalano Concrete Construction responded to my request for someone to contact me within hours of sending my info. They came out that evening and were able to get me a quote on the spot which was good since we had a tight time line. We hired them to do the work and the day before our pour they gave us a visit since they were in the area to make sure all was good. The day of our pour their crew was professional and hard working and it was a pleasure working with them.

You could tell these guys care about their work. Sal the owner and his son Peter were very pleasant to work with. Not your typical contractor. These guys know what customer service is all about. Very happy with my experience with this company.
