I was very impressed with Waldecir and his team's professionalism. They were on time for each of the work days and did a nice job with wall repairs and painting. I believe my downstairs neighbor had them do some additional interior work as well. Waldecir responded promptly when I called him for a quote for my new house and came the same day to take a look. He sent over a quote promptly.
I would definitely recommend calling Waldecir for a quote. He's very professional and just generally a nice guy.

was a good communicator. He was on time and on budget with the work. He called when he was going to be late, which we appreciated, but generally was on time. He listened well to our needs, and more than met them. His work was excellent, and we are very pleased. We have received very positive comments from our neighbors, our family, and even our letter carrier!

Recently purchased the top floor unit on a condoized 3 family in Southie. The builder wanted to build a roof deck but did not get permits in time for sale. Originally wanted

spiral staircase on back deck going up to roof, but was denied at ISD. Resubmitted with stairs going up back staircase to roof with a roof hatch, was approved.
Had about 10 contractors come out, most not interested in the job. Ended up with 3 usable bids and chose Abacus.

Little is very friendly and will explain everything in detail, if you ask.
Built the roof-deck such that its not sitting on the roof, but floating off the roof and resting on metal railings that attach at 4 distinct points. Pointed out roof work that needed to be done due to sloppy installation of siding on house. Negotiated a price directly with his roofer and paid him separately.
Now that deck is done, inspected and

's been paid, he is continuing to help me with minor items relating to the deck.

We really liked working with
Boston Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
and his crew, and would definitely use them again for future projects. The craftsmanship was excellent, and they made improvements to the porch/deck that I didn't anticipate.
Boston Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
took time to explain what he was doing and why, and pointed out several instances where he went the extra mile to make the project perfect. For example, I had requested that he install two doors under the deck so that we could store stuff in that space. Rather than just attaching two doors as many contractors would, he knew that those types of doors often sag over time, so he used a special hinge designed to prevent sagging. Although we had originally anticipated that those doors would simply be good access to some extra storage space, they ended up looking very professional and added significantly to our
Boston Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
appeal. An unexpected surprise.
His crew was very hardworking--arrived early in the morning and stayed late, and came to the house on Saturdays. They went beyond expectations in this regard.
Superior craftsmanship and professionalism aside,
Boston Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
was excellent at communicating status (which I find rare among contractors), explaining delays (there were many delays in my project due to rain), and any unanticipated challenges that came up during the project. He was in constant contact on email and text message, which I found very reassuring.
We started this project simply wanting to replace an old, rotted porch and ended up with a fabulous new front entry, which has really improved our
Boston Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
appeal.

It went terribly. After blowing the original requested schedule because he didn't reply to requests for additional specificity in a timely fashion, we signed a contract for a later date and gave him a $10,000 deposit. We subsequently learned that despite his having assured us that he was experienced with working in high-rise buildings in Boston, he was woefully unprepared to provide the standard documentation required by the condo association covenants. He provided some of the documents, but kept giving us excuses for failing to deliver one that required a state permit (I don't know which). He kept complaining about the slowness of the state...this dragged on for a couple of months.
During this period, he became increasingly unresponsive. When we were able to finally get a response, he was always very courteous and portrayed himself as beleaguered. After much frustration in attempting to communicate with him and several "check-in" deadlines which he ignored (I had asked for status reports on a regular basis so that we could get a sense of the timing. This was particularly important as the work required that we spend several nights elsewhere, and we were trying to manage that process), we decided that we had had enough and told him that since he hadn't honored the contract (which called for a specific start date, long since past) we wanted our deposit back.

played the victim, claiming that he had bought "custom materials" for our job. I never believed this - the materials weren't especially special - but acceded to his request that we give him several weeks to come up with the money. This time came and went, and after another bout of difficulty in getting in touch with him, he offered to pay $5,000 (1/2 of the sum) immediately and the rest "when he could." He sent the first check some time late (It was at least 3 weeks, as the payment was due on the first of April and I left the country in the middle of the month...the check arrived while I was gone). That check was good, but then...more silence.
He eventually promised to drop a check for the remaining amount off at our house by June 1. He did make a dropoff, but it was two checks - one dated June 9 and the other dated June 16. We deposited the first check on June 9, but today (June 12) my wife received a call from him in which he said that that check had bounced. Obviously, we have no reason to believe that the 2nd one will be negotiable. I am today filing a claim in Small Claims court to chase him for the money. I am also going to look into criminal charges...to the best of my knowledge passing bad checks is still a crime in Massachusetts.
I would NEVER recommend this guy...he comes across as well-meaning in conversation, and talks a good game with regard to materials, etc. But none of his assurances come to path. He's irresponsible at best, but he also seems to be somewhat sociopathic...he has demonstrated absolutely no ability to keep his word, and has consistently ducked the situation and left us feeling anxious and disregarded.

As I said above excellent job! They were highly recommended and we highly refer them too! Everything they say there going to do, they do it and then some. No one compared to them with there presentation, uniforms, trucks and professionalism. ~

I contacted
Boston Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
in October and they responded within a few hours.
Boston Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
came out and met with my husband to look at the work we wanted done. He was very polite and knowledgeable. My husband called me to let me know how much he liked him. I was working witha city program so there was a waiting period to start the work. He was familiar with the program and very patient during the process. Once the all clear was given we set a date to start the work. When
Boston Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
told us he could start in March I was suprised because I thought it would be too cold, but the weather didn't delay anything. They got started on a Monday and was finished by Thursday. The project was supposed to take a week. I was so pleased with the progress I shared pictures on Facebook. They worked fast and the men were so quiet I didn't realize they were on the property until I heard the saw. I will be using them again for some other work I have planned for my house.

An appointment was set to review work on a kitchen and an enclosed porch. The job was to include a new ceiling, new tile floor, and tile backsplash in the kitchen and a new floor and windows on the porch. Mr.
Boston Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
called the day before the appointment to reschedule and a new appointment was set. Good, things happen and he called to reschedule. He showed up on time for the new appointment on February 23rd. Also good.

Although Mr.
Boston Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
asked a lot of questions about the job and took meticulous measurements, things could have gone better. We were reviewing the job when Mr.
Boston Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
received a cell phone call. He then proceeded to speak with one of his sub contractors about another job for at least ten minutes.

Once the call was over we reviewed my job some more and things seemed to be back on track. Then normal small talk evolved into a
Boston Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
about Mr.
Boston Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
's philosophy about the American diet, health, and aging. He bragged about how successful he was as he owned several planes and boats. (I couldn't help thinking about an Angie's List review that mentioned unrelated conversation) My cues to end this talk were unsuccessful (guess I was too subtle) so this went on for some time.

Still it was an amusing story until the next time I heard from Mr.
Boston Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
. On March 14th he left messages on my home and work phones. While he did apologize for not getting in touch sooner I was not pleased with his messages. The reason - Mr.
Boston Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
stated he didn't want to be a fact checker against other contractors. He also stated that it took a lot of time and effort to put together a proposal so if I wasn't serious about hiring him he'd rather not draw one up. What?????? Maybe if I had signed up for Mr.
Boston Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
's philosophy of life he wouldn't feel this way. Oh well that's not going to happen and it shouldn't be part of a business deal.

Mr.
Boston Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
wanted to know if I still want him to put something together. That would be a no.

I've been a real estate developer since 1996 and also a nurse. I am very used to hiring contractors, doing the dance , getting the job done, and knowing that most are already on another job before mine is finished. Everybody has to make money and that's always been my experience and as much as I may have liked who I hired, in the end they were halfway out the door before finishing. Then a friend introduced me to

the roofing job. As I watched him work with his crew I realized this was not just a job to him, it was a person's home they were dealing with. Contractors I always said can own you and hold you hostage in so many ways, financially, mentally, emotionally and physically.

's goal from day 1 was to alleviate my stress, come up with possible options and mutual solutions that made sense. A lot of the work I wanted to do he surprisingly talked me out of as it was too expensive and I am so glad he did.I was in the habit of just doing whatever I wanted to do. He took me and my situations into consideration before writing up another contract, knowing the economy was changing much to my denial. As a developer and nurse, I've learned to deal with people in extremely difficult situations. With
