These guys are great. Mal and his crew are awesome with Patios and driveways. If you're looking for a company that not only knows their trade, but is customer focused and good at designing ideas for your home, these are the folks to call. They always pick up their phone or call you back quick. They are priced fair and do really good work. Concrete driveway and patios have both been amazing looking.

Preferred 1 was awesome to work with. Mal and his crew did a great job on my driveway in Woodbury. The timeline and scheduling was thoroughly communicated with us during the process. Completely satisfied with our new driveway.

We had Preferred 1 Concrete come out to re-do our driveway skirt and extend a sitting area outside our house. We are very happy with the results! Mal and his crew were efficient with their prep work and completed the project seamlessly in an afternoon. We were referred by a family member who had work done last fall and are glad we went with them. Thanks guys!

Prefered One poured our patio and another slab for a small shed. We had a great experience. Quality work and very affordable compared to other estimates we received. We are looking forward to have more work done in the spring.

Update: This is what our driveway looks like 9 months after installation. Cracks began appearing in the winter 4 months after it was poured and have continued to develop since the frost left the ground. Most sections are now cracked. Some of these cracks are big enough to insert a coin in. The stamped border is beginning to pull away from the main section of driveway, as shown in the photo. Cost: $9,500We contacted Mal (Preferred 1) about the cracking in early January and he said he'd take care of it this spring, as well as finish the surfacing. We met with him on April 23, and one month later, as I write this, we've received a one-sentence response that tells us nothing. We had the new driveway installed to prepare our home for sale this spring. We've been in landscape limbo, unable to complete landscaping knowing that our yard will need to be ripped up again. Mal told us he'd get back to us with a "plan." We stressed to him repeatedly that this was urgent. We asked that he prioritize making this right so that we could ready our home for sale. Instead, no word from Preferred 1, despite the fact that prior to and during installation Mal assured us several times that he would repair or replace any issues with the driveway. Knowing what we know now, we would run the other direction. Below is my original review:Our driveway with stamping and colored border turned out beautifully.

Mal placed our concrete fountian. It's is perfectly balanced. He went above and beyond our expectations. Since he did such an amazing job, I had him come back and repair my cement sidewalk. Amazing work and the best respectable crew! Outstanding! I recommend Mal and crew.

We needed the front part of our driveway replaced due to cracking and sinking. Mal was very considerate and willing to work with my unusual schedule being a nurse. Mal and his crew came over ripped our old concrete, poured the new slabs and finished everything in 1 day. The finished product is absolutely amazing. It looks like the job should've taken 3 days. Beyond satisfied and will definitely recommend to others!

I’ve done a bunch of different project with Mal @ Perfered One Concrete. As a building contractor you need a quality concrete contractor that hits the mark every time. Perfered not only hits it they exceed it. Efferent, reliable and accurate what more can you ask for !A +

Mal and his crew are absolutely amazing!!! Excellent customer service, high quality work, fantastic!!! Part of our garage apron was cracked and sunken in, therefore, we were not able to drive in or out of the garage until it was fixed. I contacted Mal and he came out the same day to give me a quote, the price was very reasonable. I asked how soon he could come out to do the work and he said that he would make this a priority since we were not able to drive in or out of the garage. Mal and his crew came out the next day to repair the broken apron and they did an excellent job!!! I was already more than impressed with Mal and his crew, and just when I thought that their customer service couldn't get any better, it did!!! Mal actually offered to contact our association to try to help us get reimbursed, he said that this is something that should be covered by the association. I can't thank Mal enough for his amazing customer service and high quality work. If you want the best customer service by a team that does high quality work at an affordable price, look no further. Contact Mal today, he truly does take care of his customers!!!

Mal and his crew repaired my foundation and added two new windows. He also worked together to line up his plumber to do the plumbing work I needed. Highly recommend using Mal, he’s not just an average contractor, he puts passion behind the projects he takes on.
