CUSTOMER TESTIMONIALS

As a professional architect for over 30 years I’ve had the opportunity to work with a broad range of concrete contractors and I can confidently say that KB Concrete is one of the best. The owner Kathleen Bernokeits is an excellent person to deal with; she has an eye for details, has a rare respect for quality, is honest and forthright and is pleasant to work with. I would recommend her for your concrete project anytime.

When an ornamental Black Pine (bad little tree) lifted and broke up the cement in our driveway, we were forced to redo our driveway. We inquired of cement contractors in Santa Cruz. Their estimates were either many thousands of dollars more than KB Concrete or they were not available to do the work when we needed it done. Discussing what we wanted with Kathleen Bernokeits, we found her attentive and helpful. We took her advice and bordered the cement with new-old brick. KB Concrete did an outstanding job, paying attention to every detail. Gene Sakai, who places great importance on the even spacing of the grout, applauded KB Concrete’s work. Our job was completed timely. We would recommend KB Concrete to anyone who needs a fair price and excellent workmanship.

  1. Ken and Marilyn Files says:

    KB Concrete did a 3500 sq. ft. driveway turnaround of stamped concrete with planters and stairs. Kathy helped with design ideas we had not considered that add to the beauty of the project. She was open to changes we wanted as the project was in the construction process. The employees were also personable and wanted us to be happy with the results. The job moved along at a pace that enabled us to make design changes. The job bid was comprehensive enough to protect us, and the final price was as agreed to. We are thrilled with the outcome, the driveway is beautiful as well as functional.

  2. Steve Davenport says:

    Kathy and her crew did a driveway, several pads, and a City-required driveway apron and sidewalk for us. She was a delight to work with, and her bid pricing was very reasonable. She helped us a lot with the driveway design–she had really good ideas, and was sensitive about we wanted vs. pushing her own ideas. She and crew inlaid brick seams into the concrete driveway, which came out great. Her crew was pleasant, and they did a good job of clean up. I recommend her.

  3. Kathy R says:

    I am very happy with the quality of work that Kathy and her team did. I had my whole back concrete patio replaced, stamped concrete and stained. Also the front driveway was replaced. I loved Kathys ideas, we did some inlay brick work. I couldnt be more pleased
    I also really appreciated the great clean up afterwards. Her bid was very reasonable and she came in at that cost. There was no surprises. I highly recommend Kathy and her crew. I would use KB Concrete again in a heartbeat.

  4. Guy Schilling says:

    My wife and I are absolutely happy with the work by KB Concrete. The professionalism of Kathy and the KB crew was amazing, the speed of completion was outstanding, and the work was first-rate in every way. Their pricing was great, their work was even better!

    I would recommend this company to all and rate them 10 STARS!

  5. Paula and Gordon Reidt says:

    Our project was small compared to Kathy’s other projects. But she took great interest as if it were a big project.New walkway from the street to the existing sidewalk that leads to our front door. She took my ideas and made some suggetions. It turned out just the way we wanted and now we can finish our front yard area. One thing that was greatly appreciated was the fate that she worked on the project herself and clean up was spotless. All we had to do was water the cement for a few days and then use the wonderful new walkway. I wish we could replace our driveway! Thank you Kathy and crew.

  6. Mike says:

    KB Concrete just completed a foundation for me. Kathy and her crew did a great job. Everything was accurate, neat and clean. The anchor bolts and hold-downs were upright and all the threads were clean. Nice job.

  8. Ted Holman says:

    Kathy was excellent. We did a major remodel that included a foundation, patio, walkway, driveway and sidewalk. In all aspects, Kathy did a wonderful job. She listened to our needs, gave excellent advice, was timely in her work, and more importantly did a fantastic job. There was no aspect of her job that i could have asked for more, especially her professional interaction with my other sub-contractors. I highly recommend her. Cheers and Happy Building.

  9. Peter Putt says:

    Kathy’s been around forever… Large or small, Kathy and her crew will provide you with professional work at a reasonable price. You can’t go wrong with KB!

  10. Linda Murphy says:

    I agree with all of the positive comments above. Kathy knows what she is doing, is a good communicator, does excellent work, and creates a climate of competent calm. After we took out an old lawn, Kathy came in and created two patios (including some curved steps), replaced parts of three sidewalks, and made everything match-up with the concrete that was already there. She also gave me permission–much needed and appreciated–to have some preliminary rock walls redone so that the patios and finished product would be acceptable and what I really wanted.

    Thank you, Kathy.

  11. Sam and Mary Ann says:

    We are totally satisfied with the work that Kathy did. We love our new driveway and patio.
    She listened to our ideas, offered great advice and consulting, and executed our plans to perfection. We appreciated that she took so much personal interest in the project and was always on site when the work was being done. We highly recommend KB Concrete.

  12. Carol and Matt Lezin says:

    Kathy did a wonderful job installing a sidewalk for us. She was professional, on time and handled all interactions with the city and permitting process with ease and grace. We would highly recommend her to anyone.

  13. Clare Choate says:

    KB Concrete did a beautiful, professional job on my driveway, patio and fire pit. They worked fast, were very tidy. Kathy had great ideas for color and shape that really made my patio look great. Everyone who comes by loves it. And so do I. Kathy returns calls promptly and she is honest and down-to-earth as you can get! She makes sure the job is done right!
    Thanks Kathy and Crew for a my new outdoor space!
    Sincerely,
    Clare Choate

  14. Susan M. says:

    Kathy created a wonderful patio for my husband’s wheelchair accessible needs. She was generous with her ideas and time and always warm and professional. Her crew was careful and took care to leave our property very clean.

    We have already made lovely memories in our new outdoor space. We are looking forward to working with Kathy on future projects and recommend her very highly.

  15. John & Diane Hofman says:

    Kathy was recommended to us by neighbors and friends. We couldn’t be happier with the results. Our job was quite large. We removed an old patio and had Kathy and her crew put in a new patio and swimming pool deck. There were issues with drainage and elevations due to the slope of our yard. Kathy was able to deal with everything and the end result is beautiful! She added a concrete step and landing to one side of our deck. She poured a concrete wall and her masonry crew created a beautiful stone veneer that matched our raised spa. Her guys did a magnificent job! They also created a wonderful BBQ Island with the same ledger rock as the wall and spa. We selected a stamped concrete finish for the patio and were quite concerned about the color since it was a large space. Kathy mixed colors perfectly and the end result was just as we had envisioned. Kathy’s crew arrived on time and always cleaned up nicely. Kathy is great to work with! She listened to what we wanted and made it happen! We highly recommend KB Concrete!

  17. Cheryl Nuss says:

    I would highly recommend Kathy. In addition to her very reasonable price, the work is excellent. I had a very large asphalt parking area in my backyard which she and her crew replaced with concrete, complete with saw-cut NBA regulation lines for free-throw, 3-pt shots, etc… It came out perfect – even better than I had imagined, thanks to Kathy’s attention to detail on the measurements and her very experienced cutter, who did an amazing job on the circle and arching lines. My backyard was also tricky because of slope and draining issues, but she took care of that and all drains well. Kathy also had excellent aesthetic ideas and helped me figure where to put the planting beds and a small sidewalk. She helped me design a slightly sloped pad of concrete for a dog run. She and her crew were always here when they said they would be and were a pleasure to work with. I would not hesitate to hire her again.

  19. Mari and Klaus Kloeppel says:

    I am writing this review to recommend the fine workmanship of KB Concrete. Kathy Bernokeits was delightful to work with on every stage of our concrete job as were her team of dedicated employees who were also friendly and professional and helped to create a magnificent concrete project for us. The job was a complex one that demanded top-knotch knowledge of how concrete functions and looks aesthetically-the result is a beautiful and structurally superior product that we will enjoy for the rest of our lives.
    It was a real pleasure to work with Kathy and her team and I would highly recommend her company to anyone considering a concrete project of any kind. You won’t be disappointed!

  20. Jake and Joy Ainsworth says:

    KB concrete did an amazing job on our backyard patio and hot tub slab. We needed a larger patio stamped and colored and it looks amazing! We couldn’t be happier with both the service or our final outcome. We had several bids and clearly made the right choice for a fair price with KB concrete. We will be using KB for all our future projects!

  21. June White says:

    Kathy (KB Concrete) was referred to us by trusted friends. So glad we have had the opportunity to work with her and her crew. They are very skilled and meticulous in their profession and have done an excellent job in the construction of a large patio, walk ways and driveway ~ all stamped and colored beautifully, with contrasting bands. In addition, they completely re-worked our failing drain systems, correcting flooding and water pooling in areas surrounding our home. All the employees were pleasant and showed true pride in their workmanship. We highly recommend KB Concrete to anyone needing this type of work.
