"Work began in early summer. It started with the siding and progressed steadily. The workers were exceedingly prompt, neat, safety conscious and very courteous. Then the work on the cornice began with the same work ethic. The porch followed and again ...more the workers showed pride in their work, kept us informed of any concerns and/or delays and were very accommodating to our traffic patterns. The porch looks absolutely beautiful with mahogany decking and banister trim. The interior work coincided with the porch work and involved rolling carpets. Each evening the carpets would be unrolled after a thorough vacuuming was done. Constant attention was made to disrupt normal household routines as little as possible.
The general contractor,
, oversaw the job regularly, was available easily by phone, offered general and specific advice and made us feel the pride he took in this work. His suggestions were always helpful and right on target. It was a pleasure working with him. "

Cook answered calls very quickly, was professional, and came for an estimate within a week's time that was good for us both--which is great considering my difficult schedule. Their painting was impeccable, seriously some of ...more the best work I've seen in a while. The job took roughly 2 days and I was very impressed. He is out to make a name for himself, so take advantage!"

came over to gave an estimate, and we went over in detail what needed to be done. He handed me a written estimate and started work a few days later. His crew and he worked diligently for four days and left me a clean apartment that rented within four days of it being painted.
even went around doing ...more detailed touch-ups to make sure everything looked perfect."
"They showed up when they said they would; they reviewed the project and quoted a price for everything on the spot. When it was time to do the work, they showed up when they said they would; they did everything that had been discussed and agreed to; they cleaned up after the job was done. Considering some of the contractors we've met, this was a ...more very refreshing experience."
"Work took 5 months. It started in November and ended in April (mostly due to rainy/cold weather). Poor workmanship was not checked. Problems included unpainted molding installation, roof leak, poorly flashed chimney, poorly flashed misc areas, roof vent and soffit were wavy/not straight, hundreds of nails around house foundation, difficult communication, ...more general sloppy appearance.
To Cliff's credit, I provided photos to Cliff and the foreman on the job was fired. Cliff brought another crew in and repaired much of the problematic work for free. Despite his agreement to perform the work--the last of the work has never been completed (tenants stained ceiling, tenants unpainted trim.)
and his ever-revolving crews of migrant workers to complete my very
job, and it was done poorly. Among other things, they got white paint on a new dark carpet, installed a window sill that was an inch higher at one end than the other, and installed windows so poorly that they ...more had to be reset. He would repeatedly no-show when I had taken off work to be home, or call and cancel at the last minute. Eventually, after I badgered him enough, they did fix the windowsill and reset one of the windows. However, he received payment from my condo association for other work which he never actually completed, and then stopped returning their phone calls; they are now pursuing legal action against him. Run, don't walk, away from this one."
and his partner came for an estimate the day after I called them. Very friendly. They began work four days later and finished in a day. They came back when I got home from work to talk about the work and to see another job."
"I could not stress this any more: do not hire this man! A very nice guy but a complete inability to organize and manage a job. This was supposed to be done in three months. It started in February of 2006 and was supposed to be done in June of 2006. I fired him on April 30th of 2007 (14 months later). After receiving a stop work order from the
...more Building Department in March of 2006 I should have known that he was incompetent. Without going through the horrific details all I can say is save yourself the headache!"
"Generally we do all of our own remodeling, but in this case there were too many complexities involved with a kitchen remodel...and we didn't want to be without a kitchen for 4 months! Overall it went very well and we're thrilled with the work. We picked
because we liked his design sense and he seemed to be a good communicator ...more right from the start. His estimate was the highest of all those we got (5 in all), but we figured you get what you pay for. Mostly, we didn't want to get sucked in by a low-ball estimate so playing it this way seemed smart.
did a fine job, considering our house is 100 years old! His subcontractors were all professionals, and in particular his assistant, Dmitri Tsimikas, paid very careful attention to the details, his workmanship was excellent, and he gave us loads of good advice. We were totally new to contractor estimates, so the only thing we would do differently next time is ask a whole lot more questions up front! Highly recommended."
