If you are wondering if we gave you an accurate assessment of your repair needs, it is always wise to ask for a second opinion. Home renovations and repairs are quite costly and can take a toll on the wallet! It makes sense that you’d want to make sure you are getting the work done that you truly need.

While you can, of course, contact another concrete contractor, there are other expert opinions you can also seek.


Real estate is a highly competitive industry. Realtors are competing with numerous other professionals — all trying to snag the best piece of property for their clients. Due to the intense competition, it is necessary for a realtor to have a wide range of knowledge about potential problems a property may have.

If you have questions about your concrete problems, a realtor may be able to offer an expert opinion. Through the course of their careers, realtors inspect thousands of houses, advising their clients on whether a property is a good investment or a potential money pit! Call around to your local real estate offices and ask a realtor their expert opinion on the state of your concrete.

Home Renovation Contractor

A licensed home renovation contractor has the knowledge and experience to take on big and small projects. Unlike a general contractor that focuses on new construction, a home renovation contractor focuses on remodeling and repairing existing houses. They supervise projects to make sure they are safely completed within budget.

A home renovation contractor should be able to give you a good estimate for the scope of the concrete repair work your property needs. You can ask the same questions that you asked your concrete contractor, and you should get similar answers.

Home Inspector

Home inspectors are highly trained to spot faults and notify the buyer prior to closing so they may make an educated choice on the viability of the property. An inspector can’t be an “expert” in just one or a couple of construction-related topics. They must possess the same level of expertise in all systems and components found in a house.

A skilled home inspector will never downplay a concern because doing so could result in the buyer incurring significant costs after closing. You can use this expertise to determine whether your concrete repair estimate was accurate and necessary.


Don’t underestimate the expertise your neighbors may possess. It is possible that your neighbors, friends, and family members have all had some sort of concrete repair done in their property-owning years. You can ask around to find out if their repairs were completed at a similar rate. They can also share their experiences with different concrete contractors to help you make the best decision.
