Toner, owner of
through Angie’s List. We were impressed by his reviews and interviewed him to repair our Hurricane Sandy damaged house.
replied to our query promptly and met with us to review our damages and discuss the project. We received a written, detailed proposal within days of our meeting. We were impressed with his professionalism and empathy at our situation. Unlike some other contractors we have talked to and heard about,
didn’t seem to be looking to profit from the problems of others. After having several discussions with
about the project, we made the decision to hire Triumph to perform the work. In addition to hiring him ourselves, we recommended him to neighbors who were also flood damaged.
has performed work for our neighbors and they also were very pleased.
The scope of work on our house was rather large and included multiple building trades. Due to water intrusion, we had to gut the floors and bottom 2 feet of drywall on the entire first floor and garage. In addition to the flood damage remediation/renovation that was necessary, we elected to perform some upgrades that we had been contemplating before the storm. The areas that were worked on included two bedrooms, a craft room, a full bathroom, entry foyer, utility room and garage.
The tasks performed by
and his crew included replacing drywall, removing and replacing all interior doors, and removing and replacing all interior trim.
also performed the demo of bathroom down to the studs and arranged to have an old plumbing leak uncovered during bathroom demo repaired. He also repaired a rotted framing member from old plumbing leak. After this, he renovated the bathroom, which included an upgrade from a standard bathtub to a Jacuzzi tub with a heater. We also added a window inside the tub/shower area (the original bathroom had no window). The exterior of our house is sided with a plastic siding that mirrors the look of cedar shakes. I was worried how the finished window would look but
trimmed it out perfectly and it matches the trim of the original windows and looks like it has always been there.
was very open to our changes/additions to the scope of work for the project, and was always able to develop a plan and solution to all of the additional work we decided to have done. While the house was ripped apart, we asked
to make a couple of changes in storage areas to fix issues that had always been an annoyance. We had the swing of one closet door reversed and moved a wall in between two closets to make better use of storage in a walk-in-closet.
built something in my laundry room that helps with storage of cleaning supplies. In a magazine, I had seen a built-in shelving unit that made use of the hollow space inside a wall and wanted something similar for my laundry room. Since half the drywall had been pulled out anyway, it seemed a good time to try to get this done. I spoke to another builder who couldn’t understand what I was trying to accomplish and wasn’t willing to try to build this.
understood what I was trying to explain and got it done. In fact, the work was so perfect its magazine worthy. I was looking for some functional shelves and he gave me beautiful finished carpentry.
also pulled out some impractical old cabinetry in the laundry room and repaired the drywall, spackled wall and painted the entire room.
We had discovered during the renovation that a prior addition to our house (a small room that I use as a craft room) had been built over a crawlspace with no access. We had to cut a hole in the craft room subfloor to gain access to the crawlspace so the wet insulation could be pulled out and the space dried. We weren’t sure how to proceed with the repair since we didn’t want to close it back up in case we ever had to get in there again.
came up with a solution. When he installed the new porcelain floor tile, he fashioned a trapdoor with a clever pull up handle. Hopefully we’ll never have to use it, but it’s good to know that it is there.
finished up by painting our entire first floor (walls, ceilings, doors and trim). The painting was excellent.
also made recommendations as we recovered from the storm to help us mitigate damage and prevent problems from the storm damage in the future. This was information he knew from the work contractors had done after Hurricane
. For example, he shared with us information about how to avoid mold damage and electrical fires caused by flood waters. And he recommended that we have all the subfloors and wall framing members screwed down as the original nails and screws holding them were submerged in flood water and were rusting. He learned that many homes damaged by Hurricane
ended up with squeaky floors and unsound walls years after the storm as the rusting screws gave way. And to confirm that he wasn’t making this up to inflate the job, he only charged a minimum amount to secure all our subfloors and walls on the entire first floor.
kept in regular contact during the project, keeping us informed of any progress and issues. He also spent quite a bit of time during non-normal business hours at the house. He was aware how anxious we were to get back to normal and was always willing to work late or on the weekends to accomplish this. At the same time he was very respectful of our weekend hours and always made sure to check if it was OK if he or his crew would be there until late on a Friday evening or early Saturday morning.
made some important suggestions along the way and took advantage of any deals available to him to make our job better and cost the same or less. For instance, he came upon an opportunity to purchase solid doors and was able replace our original hallow doors at no additional cost.
and his crew were always willing to help us recover from Hurricane Sandy in any way they could. When our town posted the deadline for putting out Hurricane debris we had not had the time to dismantle and cut up our above ground pool and large, heavy garden planter box that the hurricane had destroyed. It was New Years Eve weekend and we had no idea how we were going to get this done. On very short notice, the guys from Triumph dismantled the collapsed pool and planter and got them to the
before the deadline and for no additional charge.
He and his crew are perfectionists and took great care to make sure the finished product was beautiful and that we were happy along the way. We could not be more pleased with
and the work done by

Was very helpful in making decisions on which roof/which color, etc. Repaired water damage inside home, including sheetrock repairs. Was very professional from start to finish. Roof was installed the week before Hurricane Sandy hit our area, and there was not a single shingle missing from the storm.

He did everything he said he was going to. Arrived promply and all work was completed on time. I wish he would have taken better care of the area he was working in (placed more material to protect the floor). Also some of the materials he used should have just been returned and not used, however, he choose to use them and they were damaged. Very professional and stuck to his quote price.

off schedule where he had to move on to another job. He did his best to try & get back to finish, so that we could all move on. This was the frustrating part.
When we were ready to move forward, he couldn't get back to finish earlier. All & all we got through it.
