"The kitchen was gutted and remodeled in a 1925 house. The kitchen was previously remodeled in the 1960's. The salesman visited and discussed the job with us in the late spring. He gave us an estimate of the cost and the options. He suggested suppliers we could use for the cabinets, flooring, and tile but we were not required to use the ones he suggested. We ordered the cabinets and countertop on our own and they installed the cabinets. The countertop was installed by the manufacturer. We selected the flooring and tile and they installed it. We wanted the job to start in August or September and they began the job in late August. They gutted the old kitchen and then re-wired, plumbed, sub-floor, insulated, sheet rock, cabinet installation, flooring, trim, painting and tile installation. The carpenter was a true craftsman. Here was here on time every day and was very easy to work with. There was a delay in finishing the job as the tile we selected was back ordered. Once it arrived they arranged for the carpenter to come and finish the job.

Everything was done very quickly, but thoroughly. The roof was the most important repair and they gave an estimate the day after I contacted them. They squeezed me in and were able to start the roof right away. I needed that, obviously. They then scheduled the rest of the work which was not an emergency and started a few days later. Everything was done in 2 weeks time.
The crew is pleasant, well-mannered and VERY knowledgeable in every aspect. They have generations of the same families working in the crew for over 30 years. They function like a well-oiled machine. They take great pride in their work and left the place cleaner than it was when they arrived. They were always on-time (they were there a few minutes early to set-up and started the work on time). I have a few other properties that I am definitely going to have them repair. The price was exactly right. I got some quotes from other companies that were almost double. I had one company that barely beat their pricing, but when looking further into it, it was only 2 guys that would have been doing the work and they had limited experience. This job needed a CREW like HRS or it never would have been finished. Also, they have a showroom in East

which has been there for years (I never noticed it before) so, you know you can always get in touch with them and they aren't going anywhere. Great company, job well-done.

won't push anything that you don't need, but since he's the expert, he could probably be a little more assertive as to what works and what doesn't. Like I said before, he's meticulous, so the whole project takes a bit longer with him than it would for many other contractors, but in the end, you won't be sorry."

"The staff that was punctual and were very professional. They always maintained and cleaned the site when finished at the end of the day.

"Bottom line:

I would never use them for anything that involved actual plumbing, venting or electrical work. They made so many building code violations that were dangerous I feel compelled to warn others from using them. There is a reason they don't like to follow the law and pull building permits. Their work would fail. If you are going to just replace a sink/tub/counter top or re-tile a bathroom the probably can handle that fine. Any job that is more involved you put your house or family at risk. If you do use them for anything more involved make sure they pull a permit and have a building inspector check their work. They talk a good game up front when you're signing them up. Once into the job they take dangerous shortcuts.

Because I liked them so much at the start it took me a while before I could accept how bad a job they did. But looking through the facts I now have a lot of fixes that are needed to make the house safe and up to code. I tried to get by w/o a permit. I know that is my mistake, but that is no excuse for the poor work they did.

From the start:

We were excited when starting the project with them. The price was in line with other estimates we had received and the design was better than some of the other companies had given us. May of the fixtures they suggested were things we wouldn't have found ourselves but turned out to be excellent choices. The items they sell looked good and we like the fact that it was a one-stop shop. We chose them because they have their own work crews so we thought that would ensure higher quality and fewer issues like we've had with contractors we've hired ourselves.

The workers do show up everyday once they start and work every day until the job is complete. They were also nice and easy to have around. So I rate them high on punctuality and being personable. The job started in a reasonable time. They did a good effort of controlling the debris during demo.

The rough-in work was okay until part way through. Then the problems started. I started finding serious code violations. I'm not talking about a picky local code that someone may not know about, but basic NYS code that is available on the NYS web site. Venting bathrooms into the attic. Removing insulation when doing work and then not replacing it nor informing me so that I just happen to find it by accident. I went from R55 down to zero thanks to them. Wiring in electrical Fire hazards. No vapor
Albany Kitchen And Bath Remodelers Provider Name Locked
above a bathroom to prevent moister from going into the attic. Gaps in the bathroom ceiling right into the attic so that cold air was blowing down while allow damp air into the attic. Electric outlets one inch away from a bathtub. I started reading through the documents that came with many of the items they installed and I'd find that they did it incorrectly and voided the manufacturers warranty. The worst part was when I would point these things out they acted like I was being picky and requesting a personal preference change, like a paint color. It seems like once they got to a point in the job where they expected to be done the quality went down because it was eating into their profit. I'm a little sad because I had high hopes.

Update after Provider Response:

Mr
Albany Kitchen And Bath Remodelers Provider Name Locked
is less than credible. He has chosen to call this a diatribe instead of contacting me or working through the issues. He has never contacted me about the problems, nor did I ever see or hear from him during the entire process. Here are the building code violations listed again below. If someone really thinks these are not violations I'd like to hear that. Several of these I found during the construction and forced them to fix with much complaining. Some I found later but really do not trust them to fix them w/o me or someone else watching them due to my experiences. I would be happy to provide anyone who really . I stand my by assessment. They may be good at superficial replacement of cabinets / tiles, but any serious construction is a risk.

- The bathroom vent was not vented through the roof. Originally the builders left the flex pipe in the attic without any venting outside the house. After debating this with the workers they agreed to fix this and use a hard pipe through the roof. However they still have two separate bathrooms venting through the same pipe, thus causing drafting from one room to another. So there was a code violation,which would NOT have be address had I not found it and forced them to fix it.

- Insulation was not put back. I have photo to prove. They also did not seal the gaps around the bathroom vents. I pointed these gaps out to the foreman and he said quote "you can close those with caulk" So I paid roughly $33K and they want me to fix their issues.

- Dangerous electrical fire hazard. They installed non-IC rated electrical light under insulation. It was not fixed correctly until the third try. At first they argued that it wasn't a problem. If anyone thinks putting a non-IC rating light under insulation is okay, they should not be working in construction.

- There was an electrical outlet 2 inches from the tub. This was not in the original construction. The workmen had to move it due to the new location of the bathtub. I pointed out the problem and they refused to move to a safe distance because that is all that the existing wires would reach. They did not offer to relocate to the adjacent wall. The only option they offered was either to leave the dangerous issue or close it up. I chose to have them clover it.

- Since the original review, I have also found that the tail joists were not nailed or attached to the header joists. They did put down a 3/4 plywood and screwed that well, so that is carrying the load, but building code requires that the tail joists are attached with either joist hangers (preferred way) or to toe nail them. This was from where they cut out a joist to install the new toilet drain. I have photos with the joists with zero nail holes. I am going to fix this myself.

Mr
Albany Kitchen And Bath Remodelers Provider Name Locked
may try to claim he thoroughly investigated, but I never received one call or email from him. One problem with his organization is that it is not clear during construction who is in charge. The Foreman passes the buck to the office. The office says the people on site are in charge. Had I know I needed to take him around personally to show him the issues I would have at that time. Many of the smaller problems I ignored at the time to keep good relations with the workers. But when I found the electrical fire hazard I then started checking more closely and found more issues, and the experience went downhill. Had I not found the electrical violation I fear the worst that my family could have been injured or killed.
