executed this project with great smoothness, professionalism, and respect for aesthetics. Specification, tax and insurance documents were all in good order. Workers were on site at the agreed-upon times and performed diligently. There was a delay during part of the work because I didn't allow enough time for Landmark's approval to come through. The scope of the work had to be increased after commencement because unexpected rot was discovered in the rear cornice. In the end, every detail was completed to our satisfaction.

should be on every shortlist for construction work hereabouts.

was very prompt, neat and professions. They set up the scaffolding as soon as I got the Landmarks ok to do the work. It took a while to get that so they had to start as the weather was starting to be difficult for outdoor work. Nonetheless, even with the additional work of repointing which was a field decision, they finished the scaffolding part just before Thanksgiving so the tenants did not have to have that up for the holidays. The firm also sent all the needed paperwork and photos to submit to Landmarks for final sign off, which was easily received in January 2014. The 1872 building looks fabulous now.

is friendly, reliable, straight forward and easily reached by phone whenever necessary. He did work on a time and materials basis with an approximate estimate for the total cost of the job and came in at that estimate. His lead painter,
Brooklyn Home Builders Provider Name Locked
, is a master craftsman -- a very skilled, efficient, reliable and trustworthy worker. He works very clean, is able to skim coat to a smooth finish without sanding which avoids a lot of mess! He keeps cleaning work area throughout day keeping any dust to a minimum. He is a very neat and careful painter. I could not have been happier with the job! It was performed to a very high standard of quality, on time, at a very reasonable price by a skilled craftsman who takes pride in his work and who it is a pleasure to have in your home.

"After realizing that

Heavey and
Brooklyn Home Builders Provider Name Locked
were not an appropriately licensed contractor to complete our home renovations (although they contractually represented that they were), we requested that our $15,000 deposit be returned. Heavey and
Brooklyn Home Builders Provider Name Locked
did no work, but never returned the deposit. Numerous phones calls, emails, and letters went unanswered and we were forced to hire an attorney to help us try to get back our funds. Three years and a lawsuit have now passed, and while the court issued a judgment against
Brooklyn Home Builders Provider Name Locked
and Heavey, we still aren't even close to being whole. Last year, we finally came to a settlement agreement where
Brooklyn Home Builders Provider Name Locked
would pay us a small monthly installment over several years to pay back our deposit, which we thought was generous and flexible of us. We received two small installments, but once again, although promised, the payments stopped. We will continue to pursue our case in court and fight to get back the thousands that were never returned to us. Unfortunately, however, along the way we have also discovered that Heavey and
Brooklyn Home Builders Provider Name Locked
have a history of other large, unpaid claims against them. We recommend to never deal with
Brooklyn Home Builders Provider Name Locked
or Heavey - they cannot be trusted.

"Overall it went very well, but HOW it went well is worth reading, since it started off poorly.
Due to a mix-up at his office, Pat showed up at the address on the Angie's List account, and not at my house, where the work was to be done. I had set aside an afternoon and arranged my schedule to meet him and show him the job, but of course he ended up calling me and telling me that he was on the other side of the city.
Before he called, my blood pressure started to rise, and smoke began to come out of my ears, since I have had too much experience with contractors who don't come, don't communicate, etc. HOWEVER! When he made contact and understood his mistake, he immediately apologized. My blood pressure began to normalize. We decided to reschedule for another day. He called back and offered to come in on a weekend to do the work, so that I would not have to adjust my work schedule again. I opted for a week day, for personal reasons. Then he emailed me and told me that he would refund half of my coupon (I had bought six work hours for $200) due to the inconvenience he caused me. Well, that was a very welcome gesture, and I was happy to get it.
He came on time to the 2nd appointment, he had his equipment and his helper, and they worked diligently and without pause for the whole time. Their work was good. I was happy. I ended up having them stay an extra hour each to do more work (for a fee) since the job was bigger than I expected.

I would hire them again. I liked how he handled his original error, and I liked his work. His product was good, and his work ethic was good.

In fact, I invited him to come to my place of work to give a job quote for painting services.

"We signed a contract with the company in January and gave them a deposit. Work started in earnest by the end of February, and we were told we'd be in by March 15th. I knew this wasn't going to happen, but kept being reassured by the GC that that date was firm. Needless to say, we were not moved in until May 1. The lateness wasn't the problem: it was the complete lack of communication from the GC.

We had a plan, and the GC seemed unable to stick to it. As a result small mistakes kept being made that added up: wrong paint on kitchen cabinets (had to be redone), wrong toilets being installed (toilets are 4" away from the wall as a result). The range vent hole was closed up, even though I said over and over that I wanted to keep it (they had to reopen it and install my range hood).

The only time I got updates/got my phone calls or emails answered was when the GC needed money--which we paid on time, with every invoice. In the beginning we were making out the checks to the subcontractors individually. We were able to see where our money was going on every statement. Then the requests were to make the checks out to the principals and to the company. Seeing the statements, everything seemed to be ok.

Then we moved in and it became clear: the workers cleared out, even though there was tons of work unfinished (the basement, the laundry room, the island in the kitchen, some electrical work outside, the front roof and railings, the air conditioning). We were told they'd be back, don't worry!

We had to beg and plead to get the airconditioning subcontractor in to finish the air. Dates came and went, and I finally called the sub directly. Turns out the GC had stopped paying him, and he was owed over $3000, and wouldn't come back to finish the work. I blew my stack and ended up paying $2000 of the $5000 we still owed the GC to have the airconditioning sub come back to finish the job. When he did, he pointed out that the breaker boxes were still not updated, and so we would only be able to run one or two AC units at once without blowing breakers. He also pointed out that some plumbing things were not finished--that the condensation for the AC would pour out onto the basement floor. Calls to those subs revealed that they, too, had not been paid and refused to come back. After much begging and pleading, they finished the work.

At this point we started threatening the GC in order to get things done. He sent our former lead carpenter back to assess the situation, and we got our island in the kitchen. But still to be done? The basement, the laundry room, the roof, the stairs.

We finally gave up and severed ties, and hired another contractor to finish the work. He pointed out several things that had been done wrong and/or dangerously and had to be fixed.. So we basically paid twice for some of the work.

we've been in the house 6 months and are still finding things that are wrong. Our new gas furnace was piped completely incorrectly, and will need to be fixed, at a cost of several thousand dollars. The plumber who came to evaluate the system actually laughed and took pictures to text to his plumber friends--apparently our furnace is now a source of much merriment in the plumbing world. I have NO IDEA how it passed inspection.

Bottom line: DO NOT HIRE THESE GUYS FOR A BIG JOB. Maybe to renovate your kitchen, but not your whole house. There was NO SUPERVISION of the workers, no accountability, and terrible communication.

What did they do well? Their paint/plaster/carpentry subs were AMAZING and our walls and floors look beautiful. But even so, things had to be redone. And those subs don't work for them anymore because guess what? They didn't get paid EITHER.

"From start to finish,
Brooklyn Home Builders Provider Name Locked
was present on the job to oversee every single aspect of design and construction. He was available all hours of the day to discuss ay concerns I had and to adjust aspects of the building design as we progressed through construction. He is not only the most talented builder I have ever worked with, but he is also one of the most honest, kindest, and sincere people I have ever met. He is one of a kind and so are his houses."
