Pittsburgh General Contractors Reviews

"I signed up for a special deal where I would receive four hours of professional carpentry for $149.
A previous contractor who I did not have a good experience with inexplicably removed a metal plate and disconnected a downspout that was not even involved with the job he was doing and left a gaping hole around the downspout when he re-installed it. I really wanted it fixed and I really didn't want to attempt it myself.
So - when I saw the deal for four hours of carpentry I immediately thought of that soffit and drain being a perfect project to get knocked off my "to do" list. I was contacted within 24 hours by
Pittsburgh General Contractors Provider Name Locked
to find out what I wanted done and to arrange a service date. The date had to be postponed once because of weather which was perfectly reasonable. On the next arranged date two carpenters arrived early in the morning, sized up what needed to be done and got right to work. They (Bill and Bill) were obviously experienced and worked well together. They gave me useful information about the condition of the porch rafters and roof condition without using annoying "scare tactics" in order to upsell me. I have an old house and am aware that there is always going to be more to do so I appreciate when someone is respectful of my time and budget. we've had enough work done around here to become skeptical when we get one of those "the sky is going to fall if ..." . There was none of that. Just factual, reality based information. Priceless!
Bill and Bill were near finishing up the carpentry portion when it started to rain. And then pour. They didn't flinch, but finished what they were doing. They were kind, professional and maintained good humor throughout. They even offered to come back on a dry day to prime and paint as the rain had come earlier than expected. While I appreciate that it was an included part of the service it's not necessary as I can finish that myself. However, if I wasn't capable or didn't have the materials it's nice to know that they would have. The carpentry was well done and just what we hoped for.
As I mentioned earlier, it's an old house and there's a lot more to be done. I thought of this special deal as sort of an "audition" for this company's services. They are definitely getting a future call back!

"This was a highly constrained project in terms of time (absolute deadline, before our baby was due), space (it is a small house with little space inside or out to layout work), and existing conditions. It was completed as time and materials, which normally I would be reluctant to do, but I had worked with
Pittsburgh General Contractors Provider Name Locked
before and was confident that they would be fair. We purchased the main materials (doors, trim, flooring, plumbing fixtures, light fixtures and closet and toilet accessories, $4700) and had them at the house. His company provided drywall, and other materials, about $1000 worth. Their labor was about $7000.
One thing I appreciated is when I met with
Pittsburgh General Contractors Provider Name Locked
to review the scope of work (for a rough price and then right before starting after we had the materials ordered and on site), he made a few suggestions to improve it based on his experience but basically honored the scope we had intended. (We had talked to several other contractors to work on a T&M basis and they had really pushed us to completely change the layout, walls, and fixture locations, which was much more costly and time consuming.) We did elect to demo the hallway light and relocate a new one, at his suggestion, which added a small amount of time and money but was worth it. We also added regrouting all the existing wall tle, which was also more additional time and money but made the space seen more completely renovated, not piecemeal.
New lights, vanity, GFCIs, and recessed medicine cabinet had to be coordinated with the existing wall opening and the existing wall tile to remain, existing plumbing,and existing wiring. We had plans and elevations, but the on site supervisor,
Pittsburgh General Contractors Provider Name Locked
, worked with us to finesse some details and limit the broken tile (we were unable to find extra that would match the 50 year old tile so they were working with a finite amount.) He was good about calling, texting, or meeting with us whenever there was an odd existing condition or wanted to present a choice (sconce rough-in height? plaster exterior wall or fur it out and insulate? remove existing flooring or build over it? etc.) Also
Pittsburgh General Contractors Provider Name Locked
came by every week to review work with us, answer questions, and receive payment.
We purchased the main items, and they were accommodating when items arrived broken (light shades), require clarification (underfloor heating system) or not at all (despite the fact we ordered it in
Pittsburgh General Contractors Provider Name Locked
, the vanity arrived one month after they had finished, in September). They shared the schedule throughout and even came back a month later to install the vanity sink, mount shelves, and fix floor tile after the baby came!

"I cannot say enough good things about
Pittsburgh General Contractors Provider Name Locked
and his crew. They arrived on time, covered the entire patio below the deck with plastic to minimize the dirt from sanding, worked diligently to complete the job in one day, and cleaned up before they left. The deck, which is 30 years old and was in poor condition, now looks new.

exhibits the utmost professionalism and his pricing is fair. This is the second home project I hired

"I can't tell you what a relief it is to have found a contractor I trust, whose work is of the upmost quality, and whose prices are fair. My wife and I recently bought a 100 year-old Dutch Colonial that was in need of a facelift - And
Pittsburgh General Contractors Provider Name Locked
's team completely restored the exterior to our satisfaction. Initially, I found
Pittsburgh General Contractors Provider Name Locked
while searching for someone - anyone - that could restore rotted wooden soffit and fasica. I had gone through through several contractors' estimates, all of which recommended replacing the historic wood with vinyl (something that did not sit well with my wife and me) before I found
Pittsburgh General Contractors Provider Name Locked
. He came out and gave me a
Pittsburgh General Contractors Provider Name Locked
and detailed explanation of what his team could do to restore the wood and salvage the character of the house. We probably talked for about 45 minutes about the job and I was amazed at
Pittsburgh General Contractors Provider Name Locked
's analysis of the work needed and his detailed plan-of-attack. When he offered a very reasonable price for the work, I agreed to have his team start as soon as possible. The team did a fantastic job repairing the soffit and fascia, lining up the beads in the new soffit with the old, and prepping the surfaces for painting. They even lined my box gutters with a new coat of tinners red and painted the metal roof over one of the house's extensions. Moreover, the team was professional, competent, and friendly. But the cherry on top was that
Pittsburgh General Contractors Provider Name Locked
's team came in even lower on the price than the original estimate when it was all said and done.
I was so impressed with the quality of craftsmanship, price, and timeliness (
Pittsburgh General Contractors Provider Name Locked
's team met the initial schedule perfectly) that I asked
Pittsburgh General Contractors Provider Name Locked
if they might be interested in taking on the painting of the house. Again
Pittsburgh General Contractors Provider Name Locked
gave me his direct and meticulous assessment of the work needed (the job would include 4 colors, and more tinners red, as well as a lot of cut-in work and ladder work). I followed his advice and received estimates from other painters as well, but, given our trust in the team and that his estimate was one of the most competitive, I had no hesitation in hiring them for this larger job. Once again, the team delivered. The job took about 8 days (which fit their estimate).
Pittsburgh General Contractors Provider Name Locked
's team did an excellent job of prepping the surfaces and identifying the unique aspects of the job (e.g., what accent color should be used where). They consulted with my wife and me on every decision and, almost on a daily basis, gave me a rundown of what they had accomplished and what they were going to tackle next. While it was no surprise to me that the work turned out great, I want to note that they went above-and beyond - The team went out of their way to improve the exterior by identifying and replacing a rotted wooden garage-door frame, patching parts of the roof and gutters, and removing an old satellite dish from the top of the house. And, once, again,
Pittsburgh General Contractors Provider Name Locked
's team came in under the estimate.
My wife and I are very pleased with the work performed and can't say enough good things about the experience. I guess the best thing I can say is they we'll be using
Pittsburgh General Contractors Provider Name Locked
in future.

"Soon after I moved into the house I discovered that there were many problems with it that I hadn't been aware of before the closing. Chief among those problems was the patio-kit-room: its ceiling leaked badly, and showed signs of many years of attempted repairs, much of it with incorrect materials.

The work began as soon as weather permitted. The carpentry work was done by Amish carpenters, true artists. Other elements of the overall job (e.g., electrical) were performed by non-Amish full-time employees of

I couldn't be more pleased with the quality of the work, the reliability and ethics of all the workmen (&

came out to survey the work required on Thursday, May 17th. He was on time and seems very thorough and knowledgable. He said he would send the estimate on Saturday (May 19th). No estimate arrived so I called him and he said he had run into problems on a job and promised it would be sent soon. Again, no esitmate so I called him again and he promised the estimate would be in my inbox the next morning. That was almost 2 weeks ago and I still have no estimate. Based on his level of customer service when he should be trying to

"We have had periodic leaks in our dining room for 45 years. It was time to replace the distressed ceiling.
Pittsburgh General Contractors Provider Name Locked
discovered a definite cause for some (hopefully all) of the leaks: improperly installed flashing. We decided to have all the flashing around the house replaced properly. And then we decided to have all the windows recaulked. The redundant convection vents at the peak of the roof were to be removed also. The dining room ceiling was a mess... this was our original goal and the job grew. But these guys were able to handle many different tasks.

Pittsburgh General Contractors Provider Name Locked
promptly supplied a reasonable bid to do all of these things and we were off.

Pittsburgh General Contractors Provider Name Locked
and two very nice and very capable workers handled the flashing and caulking first and then worked in our dining room. The dining room was very nicely shut off from the rest of the house with heavy duty plastic with zippers allowing them to pass in and out. It was quite messy and dirty where they were working and we barely knew it. They covered our wood floors with plastic and corrugated cardboard to protect it from falling ceiling pieces. They worked hard and steadily, always cleaning up after themselves at the end of every day.

They made the job as pleasant as it could have been for us. The results look great. I didn't realize when we signed the contract that they would be painting the entire room after the ceiling was completed. They even cleaned the floor with a wet rag.

showed up when expected and performed the work as rapidly as materials delivery and weather allowed. When we made changes, he accommodated them and he dealt well with complications. He did virtually all of the work on the sunroom and the deck except the new floor in the sunroom which I installed. We had an understanding from the beginning that I was going to do part of the work in the basement, including all of the painting. (He handled all of the painting for the sunroom and it was well done.) Near the end of the basement job, we provided the materials, and
Pittsburgh General Contractors Provider Name Locked
installed a wonderful heated tile floor in the remodeled bathroom. We worked together on several projects related to the basement during the course of the work. I am very pleased with the work and I have tried to hire him again.
