Reuben Simpson, owner of All Star Concrete broke his contract to remove and replace the driveway and walkway at the my home in Columbia, SC. Also, his workmanship has proven to be clearly substandard.

He failed to: install control or expansion joints, seal the stamped brick portions of the driveway and walkway and remove all debris, which included a large stump.

Sections of the walkway where the stamping is dramatically misaligned and a second section where the coloring agent did not take, leaving the brick stamp streaked and with minimum red pigment. Red pigment from the brick stamping was also inappropriately spread over several sections of the driveway. Five weeks after the driveway was completed, five 12 inch cracks developed in the stamped brick sections that may not have occurred if this area had been sealed as promised. In addition, a 15 foot crack developed in the lower section of the driveway, exactly where an expansion joint should have been.

When called, Mr. Simpson acknowledged the problems and agreed to fix them as soon as possible. Subsequently, our attempts to reach Mr. Simpson by phone were unsuccessful, although we have left detailed messages each time. Certified Letters requiring a return signature was sent. Both Certified Letters were returned after several weeks due to a failure to pick them up. The Fairfield County Magistrate's Court has found him in default (he basically plead no contest) and I am awaiting a financial judgement that I am sure I will never collect. Please DO NOT USE Reuben Simpson of All Star Concrete of Ridgeway, SC for any contract work.
