was so easy to work with, which made a huge difference in a stressful situation. We had damage from ice dams, definitely not a planned renovation." It took a few tries initially to get in touch with them as it was so so busy this winter, but once I did they were really very helpful, did a good job, would definitely recommend

"A neighbors pipe broke flooding my kitchen, requiring me to make a claim on my homeowners insurance.
was very professional and helped guide" me through the process of preventing more damage, getting things cleaned up and working with my homeowners insurance to get everything I was entitled to under my homeowners policy. Having never made a homeowners claim before and finding the insurance company extremely unhelpful in providing any guidance (it makes some degree of sense, the less they help the less they potentially have to pay out),
's assistance was invaluable. I would not hesitate to use him again or recommend him to anyone in need of a public adjuster.

Try SCOE 10x (Super Concentrated Odor Eliminator). Cost $25.00 ( includes shipping) for concentrate to make 32 oz. and 32 oz. spray bottle included.  This stuff is great!  I have cats and every now and then one of them pees on the rugs ( cat pee smell is awful as is cigarette smoke). You may need more than 32 oz. to get all the stink out but go to the website and read testimonials ( they will even send a concentrate of skunk smell for you to pour on something and then use the SCOE 10x on it to prove how good it works, for a few dollars more).  Anyway, this stuff worked like magic for me.  They also sell gallon and larger sizes.  Worth every penny!

You have every right to fire the GC, but it may cost you money in legal fees to fight any leins he has on the property. If you do insurance work you should know that you have to do part of the work out of your own cash reserves and wait for disbursement from the insurance company. His crews errors are not your problem, they are his. If you have problems you should include your insurance company in the problems you are having. If he is running into problems with extras they should only be related to things the adjuster missed and not his or his crews incompetence. If upon rip out he finds hidden water damage that would be an example. An example was a flood job I did not too long ago where we found termite damage that could not be seen untill after demo. Since it was not related to the flood it was not covered. Unless this is his first insurance job he should know the procedures and not be expecting money before it is due, stick to your guns and make sure he is doing the right job. If not include your insurance company and possibly even your mortgage company in any problems. A lein is not that big a deal though in the long run as long as you pay off the agreed amount as per contract. Just make sure if you stay with this guy he has a lien release with him when you give him the finnal check!

never, never, never shows up on the day he says he will be there. The day he took my deposit, he said he would start the next day. It was seven days later when he showed up. And throughout the course of the job, it is always unpredictable when he will and will not be working. He likes to work in cash, and I went three weeks trying to get a receipt from him. He had followed me to the bank to get the cash deposit, and flew out of that parking lot like lightning when it was in his hand. When contacting him about that or about the work itself, I discovered he ignores lots of messages, phone, email, text.
Before the job started, I talked with him about glazing the windows, replacing rotten wood around windows, Oh, yeah, yeah, he was gonna do all that. He did none of it. Just slapped the paint on. I had oil-based primer I wanted on there. After he walked off the job, I found half of it unused (and they should have consumed both gallons if they REALLY put on the four coats he claims).
He rebuilt the concrete stairs with a dip at the bottom where the lowest step meets the city sidewalk. Needless to say, the rain puddles there. And they left little knobs of concrete on the walk to the door.
On the fence, he was to replace damaged boards. There are probably 10-12. He replaced ONE! The fence still bows and the posts are still unstable. He tells me he is "not re--building your whole fence for $250.00!" so I paid $250.00 to have one board replaced.
He also had taken a deposit to replace the deck of the porch. He cut out the floor boards, discovered much more work needing to be done, and naturally wanting LOTS more money. Unfortunately, I didn't have it. He agreed to wait 6-8 weeks to do the job so that I had time to gather some funds by getting a job -- I'm retired -- among other possiblities. He left the porch with loose and cut floor boards, left a gaping hole where he had completely removed boards, and obviously didn't care a bit about the safety of the tenants there. I then learned I needed a city permit to do the porch re-build, so I asked him for the number of his contractor's license so that i could get the permit. He emailed back that he would return my deposit and we would "part ways." Guess who probably doesn't have a license, though he told me did when I first called him?
Of course, by now I know that I can't believe half of what he says, so I went to get the papers to file in small claims court.
He has left all sorts of trash on the site for me to clean up.
Please avoid major headaches by avoiding this contractor for jobs big or small.

The project was lengthy because of the scope of the work. Someone was working at my house nearly every day for about 4 months.

handled the tear out, drying of surfaces, mold eradication, and reinstall of cabinets themselves. They used excellent subcontractors for some of the other work: electrical, plumbing, hardwood floors, and granite countertops.
Communication was excellent! When scheduling workers my needs were always considered. All work was explained in detail and in terms I understood. Workers were very knowledgeable and were always willing and able to answer all my questions. They appeared to understand the horror and frustration a homeowner experiences when watching their much loved home being torn apart. Conversation was always positive, calm and reassuring.
All workers were a pleasure to work with. Their workmanship was excellent. In addition, they were efficient, punctual, and respectful of both me and my home. When taking materials in and out of the house much care was take to protect flooring with mats and covers on worker's shoes. Plastic barriers and exhaust fans were used to prevent dust from contaminating cabinets, appliances, and other rooms of the home. The work was well planned and executed.
All repair work was done within the financial parameters of the insurance policy. I personally paid for some additional work (upgrades) outside of the original repair project. Their prices for the additional work were competitive and fair, in my opinion.
I couldn't be more pleased with this company! I would definitely use them again and have referred them to others several times.


FANTASTIC. Talk about getting into every nook and cranny...they were amazing. Not only did they clean all the stuff you'd expect they opened every closet, every drawer and cleaned everything in there. Each individual

jar on the top shelf of my pantry was cleaned for crying out loud!
Insurance paid for it so that was nice. Therefore I do not know offhand how much it cost but the work itself was top notch.

I bought the three room deal for $ 135.00 had two bedrooms and 100 square ft in basement. I expected to pay a little bit more for the basement rather than a normal square room. I was told after they arrived that the $135.00 was for very basic cleaning only and they would do just the basement at that price so I ended up paying an additional $160.00 to have the two bedrooms done I would use their service again but would definetly ask up front for additional fees as well as clearidy what the expectations are. I felt the deal was really not authentic.

I highly recommend this company and will definitely use them in the future.

The wooden floor was unprofessionally installed,
it's uneven
the finishing start coming of shortly after it was done,
the wood is cracking
When I'm trying to call they come up with the most incredible stories and lyes to avoid redoing what was poorly done.

We had a very disappointing experience with the first water mitigation company that our insurance company sent out. I found

came out to our home to assess the flooding situation first. He explained exactly what would need to be done. We appreciated that the crew worked to cut out as little drywall as possible in the drying process. Everything was done very professionally. The only slight gripe we had was with how the damaged hardwood flooring was removed. We felt the process could have been a little more "gentle" so that less wood was damaged in the removal process.
