  • Adam Doppelt - I just completed my first project with John. He was responsive, competent, and reasonably priced. He even rented a large ladder so he could caulk the upper floor on my house. That's going above and beyond, I think. Also did a great job texting me updated and keeping me informed. Showed up on time. Recommended!
  • Piragash - Matt is the nicest, coolest, fastest, cleverest, strongest handyman. In all seriousness, Matt is super generous and thoughtful and very efficient in fixing a problem simply and elegantly. He’s solved so many problems efficiently. He’s gone on wild goose chases on my bequest and never charged me. He’s right a lot. Our kids love him and he’s super kind. He came by last Christmas bearing gifts with his dog. The kids loved it. We love Matt.

Adam Doppelt Hey Amy. That sounds like a perfect job for a handyman! Do you need one? I'm very happy with my current person, who we've used a handful of times. I'm almost afraid to share him...
Amy Bates Would love an intro to your handyman if you are wiling to share!
Adam Doppelt Sure! I've used John Gasser several times now, including another couple of jobs coming up shortly. He's friendly, reliable, reasonably priced, and quite knowledgable. I think that guy can do just about anything. Two thumbs up!

Robert Crimmins Thanks, Meredith! I will give Gonzalo a call tomorrow.
Tom Laramee This is a tough one. In my experience these guys don't like to ride shotgun (assist), they want to run the show.

I used to check in with Industrial Coatings & Sealants in Mukilteo prior to doing this kind of work .. they were wickedly helpful in advising on which type of concrete to use (apparently, there are some that lose very little volume when they dry), how to apply acid-reactive stain, also hot-tar-rated epoxy-based sealants, and clear epoxy top coats. They also recommended contractors to advise and sold the requisite tools.

They were purchased by a huge chain a few years ago .. I don't recall the name, so they may not be around anymore. You could try to look them up and see who bought them:

Industrial Coatings & Sealants - Mukilteo, Washington
12521 Evergreen Dr, Mukilteo, WA 98275

That said, if you look for Kemiko dealers in WA State, there's a place call Westside Concrete Associates in Lynwood. I'd call them. Kemiko makes some really great products to treat concrete (like a set of acid-reactive stains), and they require expertise above and beyond "mix concrete and pour", and they're likely to have contractors who are skilled in this area (they definitely have a massive set of concrete products).

Westside Concrete Associates – Lynnwood
412 164th St SW, Lynnwood, WA 98087
425-582-9977

I've also walked into Salmon Bay Sand And Gravel in Ballard and they were pretty helpful. Their product selection is fairly limited. They were annoyed with me because I didn't really know what I was doing, so be prepared to be mocked if you go in and ask questions .. but you'll eventually get what you need.

FWIW here's the Kemiko site:

Robert Crimmins Thanks Tom. Very helpful. It's clear you know your way around a bucket of cement!

I know what you mean about pros not wanting to work with amateurs. I'm prepared to be mocked (that happens all the time) and to get the cold shoulder... and be relegated to full DIY. Seems that once you figure out the correct materials and do the prep, it's a pretty straight forward project. Here's to hoping I don't have to eat those words someday.
