Contractor for sidewalk replacement

We need to replace our sidewalks and are looking for contractors to give us estimates and then replace our sidewalks. Any favorites in term of good work and cost? TIA



Avellino did a great job for me


Replaced sidewalk years ago. They did a nice job but sorry don’t remember the name of company. But what I do remember is that I was required to pay the cement truck driver in cash.  No other form of payment was accepted.

 Wow. Nice to be forewarned.

 That isn't always the case.  I've never done that 


Avellino offered us the option of paying in cash and getting a discount, but didn't require it.

 That's tax avoidance.  Very shady, and different than a cement company wanting cash.  Once concrete comes out of the truck it can't be reclaimed or returned, so some services won't take a check that can bounce or a card that can be reversed.

Not necessarily.  There are costs associated with credit cards as well as cash flow issues due to holdbacks. 


The sidewalk that Carmine's replaced for us about three years ago has remained solid, no cracks.  They did a good job and were a pleasure to work with.  They advertise on this site.
