"It went HORRIBLY,and always does. I have no choice in the matter, as I live in a Condominium Condo Complex, and have no control over snow removal.The Condo Board" hired them. The snow removal they do is so inadequate,that our
carrier said to me spontaneously’How can you people stand to live here. ?” He told me that he is not require to deliver the mail under such hazardous conditions,and may stop delivering the mail due to the icy conditions. They
’t always show up, and when they do ,they NEVER remove the snow adequately. Even when the managing agent calls them and asks them to return to finish the job, and they promise they will return, they often do not return. He has called them more than once on more than one occasion. I have gotten stuck with my wheels spinning when trying to pull into or out of my garage.They have actually left PILES of snow in front of my garage exit. They leave piles of snow between our garages,making it difficult to pull in and out. They have left us completely blocked in.On more than one occasion,they have left without shoveling our stairs altogether. or without clearing the paths to our garage entrances. I
’t know how it is possible to shovel snow and miss 6 staircases. with large landings. My staircase has 11 steps and a landing. The snow they ALWAYS fail to shovel completely, freezes over and turns to dangerous ice.It would be safer if they didn’t shovel at all. I have fallen multiple times,I have a friends who have warned as they were headed towards my apartment,that our common walkway or my stairs are dangerously slippery. I walk in the street rather than walking on our sidewalk,It is safer to walk in the street than on our sidewalk, There hadn’t been ONE occasion when they have shoveled the snow cleanly. My friend has shoveled my staircase ,landing and entrance to my garage after they have “shoveled” many times. I had to stop him from shoveling the whole path to the street.They are being PAID to shovel the snow. I just opened the door to ask them to please remove the snow they had left behind on my landing and staircase. The man reluctantly return to my landing,which still had plenty of snow on it and said “Lady,it’s not going to be perfect.” I pointed at the sidewalk across the street from us,which was shoveled cleanly. I’ve shoveled plenty of snow in my life. The point of shoveling snow is so that one can SAFELY exit and enter one’s home, walk on the paths and sidewalks. They
’t care that the snow they leave behind is going to turn to a sheet of ice. The only reason they get away with this is because they are under contract and are paid regardless of whether they shovel or how bad a job they do. NO HOMEOWNER would EVER PAY them after they removed the snow,if they left it like this.Private homeowners who pay people to shovel their snow ,and pay them after the job is done would NEVER pay them for an incomplete job like this. My brother used to get paid to shovel snow.He would never have gotten paid.No individual homeowner who is shoveling snow would ever do a partial snow removal job like this,or pay someone to do it.They wouldn’t risk their personal safety, that of family members,or that of guests. The owner just ignored me,and instructed his worker to do so and said “Ignore her.SHe is CRAZY. If the definition of “CRAZY’Is not wanting to slip and fall and break an arm or leg,then I am crazy.The woman who shares the adjoining landing and staircase.once called me from her cell phone from the bottom of the staircase and warned me not to leave my apartment.She told met hat she had just FALLEN DOWN THE ENTIRE FLIGHT OF STAIRS . If you contact them,they will undoubtedly tell you that I am crazy,just as the owner just said to me. I have taken photographs of the dangerously snowy,icy stairs,walkways,and sidewalk on multiple occasions and would be happy to forward these photographs to Angie’s list to back up what I am saying. They simply
’t care.They are doing as little as they can get away with. Do not hire them if you value your personal safety,that of your family,or of any visitors.

"Ice dam near
of roof was removed - about a 3ft. deep
along 2nd story roof line. The experience was just so-so. Some" of
slid off and damaged a gazebo frame below. The amount of the bill exceeded my expectations. The service provider seemed to lack customer skills and maturity. However, enough ice was removed from the roof to prevent leaking in the house.

He contacted me a half an hour before our appointment time to cancel with a "family emergency", but upon review of his recent review history, he has canceled on many other members with a wide range of excuses. Since then, he has been heckling me about my "understanding" of his "family emergency".

was very helpful on the phone, she set up the appointment with her son. They accommodated my request for a later appointment. I work until 5:30 p.m. The sales presentation showed the GAF products and he answered all my questions. The proposal arrived w/in 4 business days. Once we decided to use their services, we were scheduled the next week! They arrived early, got right to work, and finished quickly. The yard was immaculate! They were great!

After having a leaking problem coming from our chimney, we noticed some damage to our roof that was probably from a storm the year before and we wanted to get an evaluation of what sort of things would need to be done to improve it. We had used
Albany Ice Dam Removal Services Provider Name Locked
6 months before for an ice dam removal and I was so impressed with
Albany Ice Dam Removal Services Provider Name Locked
and his service, I decided to contact him again to assess my roof. We also started the process of seeing if our insurance company would help us with replacement costs. After my initial meeting with
Albany Ice Dam Removal Services Provider Name Locked
and my phone call to the insurance company, I didn't even need to do that much other that pick out the shingles.
Albany Ice Dam Removal Services Provider Name Locked
took care of most of the insurance stuff for us, including being there when the assessor came to view the roof and submitting the invoices and photos of the work done directly to the insurance company. He and his team (one to four other guys depending on the day) work for several days to re-deck the whole house and garage (they were replacing what was probably 94 year old wood), put on new shingles, new vents on the garage, fresh flashing on the chimney, and even adjusted some of the siding that was impacted by the changes on the roof (and one that was just falling off the side of my house). All of them were very nice. The were delayed several time due to rain so that made it take a bit longer, but they still got done before my requested deadline. The whole thing, from the time I first contacted
Albany Ice Dam Removal Services Provider Name Locked
to when the final insurance payment came, was probably about two months. I am so pleased with the results!

Medium quality work. Horrible responsiveness. They wouldn't call back when there was a problem. I recommend holding back most of their money until 100 percent completion or you will never see them again if there is a problem. We had a big problem with the sealer they recommended and installed.

Pitters was very nasty when I told them about the problem. They ignored the problem. After three projects and $19000 spent with them, we will never use them again and I recommend customers avoid them.

My husband and I were very, very happy with the quick and professional service we received from
Albany Ice Dam Removal Services Provider Name Locked
. The ice dam on our home caused water to leak into our kitchen and we needed emergency service. True to their word, they got to our home fast, took care of the ice dam using steam so it didn't hurt our roof and their cost came in less than a competitor's estimate. Thank you,

Albany Ice Dam Removal Services Provider Name Locked
is wonderful to work with and always does a careful, thorough and professional job. We have not done any major renovations but he has done some significant work, such as an emergency job to basically rebuild a porch that was about to collapse. He has done a great deal of painting and his painting is flawless. He got our current home ready to move into by putting a floor down in a floorless attic, powerwashing and staining the outside deck and more interior painting. I highly recommend

My overall experience with
Albany Ice Dam Removal Services Provider Name Locked
was excellent. When I placed a phone call to them they answered my call (this seems to be difficult these days to even get a hold of someone) and were very professional and receptive to my issues I was having with my home.
The crew that came out to my home was on time, courteous, and respectful of my home. They were polite and took the time to tell me what the steps were that they would be taking to help remedy the problem. They showed me the areas that they said needed some additional insulation and also recommended some additional air flow with my soffit ventilation on the front corner of my home to help prevent future ice dam issues.

The roofing jobs were well done at a very good price. The old roofing was removed, new quality shingles were put on, all the debris put in the dumpster, yard cleaned up upon completion & debris hauled away.
Snow removal: An employee came out, gave us a quote. The price quote was reasonable, what was expected. We accepted the quote, the crew members were contacted to come out, the man that quoted the job got started immediately. The job was completed the same day, with all walkways shoveled upon completion of the job.
For both jobs, the workers were appreciative of the job, thanked us for the opportunity, were very polite.
