took time giving me an estimate and telling me how he would go about it, as well as making a few recommendations. They were punctual, did great work, were" meticulous, and completely cleaned up the area afterwards. They were professional but also very pleasant and friendly.

"It went well. They did the work on time and professionally. It took approximately one week to complete all the work. The house was torn up, that made things a little difficult," but needed to be done. We also had new steps put in and they look great.

"We had our kitchen flooded after a botched dishwasher installation. The wet floor included all the kitchen, the dining area and into the carpeted living area (about 500 square feet)." We turned the water off and started to clean up. However, we noted the baseboards were wet and moisture had leaked under the walls and was running down the outside of the foundation. I knew we would have major moisture damage unless this was addressed quickly. I called
&
(The house was in
, TX) They were there in LESS THAN AN HOUR! The emergency service call by Mr.
was very extensive. He has very polite and professional. WITHIN AN HOUR the emergency setup team was there. All the baseboards were removed, holes drilled in the drywall behind the baseboards and the drying equipment was started. He said it might take 3 days, but it only took 2 days. The baseboards were easily reinstalled by our handyman. It looks great and you can not tell there was any water leak. Since there would be a third party paying for the repair Servepro graciously allowed the payment to be put on hold. It took over 7 weeks for the third party
to pay us.
at the main office stayed in touch with me discussing the process of approving the payment. She is very pleasant and professional. Sometimes it is hard to remain pleasant when discussing payment issues with a client. I hope I will never be placed in a situation like this again, but if I am
will be called..

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!

was great right from the start. I contacted several
North Tonawanda Water And Smoke Damage Specialists Provider Name Locked
companies and he responded back right away. For this project, we needed to work around our tenants schedule and have
North Tonawanda Water And Smoke Damage Specialists Provider Name Locked
give us an estimate for some water damage that had happened to their ceiling. We planned a day and time for him to come but unfortunately due to some unforeseen circumstances on our tenants side, we were unable to get access to the apartment where the work needed to be done.
North Tonawanda Water And Smoke Damage Specialists Provider Name Locked
was very accommodating and followed up with us to find another date that would work for the estimate. Once
North Tonawanda Water And Smoke Damage Specialists Provider Name Locked
viewed the damage, we got the estimate within the next day or two. Once we gave him the green light,

once again was accommodating to our tenants schedule and preferences regarding scheduling of work. He came with his crew and the work was completed on time and beautifully. My husband and I were very impressed and would definitely use

, is a very professional Roofing Company. My insurance company’s damage estimate was $40,000. The
North Tonawanda Water And Smoke Damage Specialists Provider Name Locked
representative came out talked with us and conducted their own assessment. The
North Tonawanda Water And Smoke Damage Specialists Provider Name Locked
representative was not convinced the insurance company covered all the extensive damage. He found additional repairs that weren’t originally assessed. The insurance company reinspected the damage, and the
North Tonawanda Water And Smoke Damage Specialists Provider Name Locked
owner came out for this reinspection. The insurance company agreed to
an additional $30,000 in costs that
North Tonawanda Water And Smoke Damage Specialists Provider Name Locked
identified. The roof and the inside water damage repairs were done professionally and on time. This is an A+ company. It was especially assuring to have the owner came out for the second inspection of the roof by the insurance agent to ensure everything was identified and relooked. If you need to recover from storm, water or roofing damage this is the company to call

I bought Angie's Big Deal for 40 hours worth of labor and was very pleased with the work
North Tonawanda Water And Smoke Damage Specialists Provider Name Locked
employees did. The workers were prompt, courteous, and thorough. They worked hard and steadily, yet were attentive to the quality of their work. The drywall blends in with the pre-existing drywall so it doesn't appear to have been replaced, and the repaired stucco on my ceiling blends in with the rest of the ceiling. They also did a good job of cleaning up. I would recommend

has done several projects for us, is always quick to respond and is honest and forthcoming. He spends as much time as he needs and answers any questions I have. He makes it seem that I am his top priority. He videoed the sewage line and cleaned it out in both directions. Investigated all other causes and ordered parts to fix a pipe clean out. Let me know the cause (improper maintenance of the garbage disposal) and how to prevent this from happening again. I love that he is concerned with doing a job right, and preventing issues from occurring in the future. We originally brought him in to redo our basement after a flood, but have come across several issues that he has had to fix first. Looks like we will be keeping him in business for a while :)

In late December 2013, our house sustained water damage due to ice damming. Water got into the exterior walls of every room in the house except for one. We hired
North Tonawanda Water And Smoke Damage Specialists Provider Name Locked
to address the water damage and oversee the remodel process for our home. Because the damage was so extensive we did not live in our house during this project. The work
North Tonawanda Water And Smoke Damage Specialists Provider Name Locked
performed was in two stages: the water damage mitigation and the rebuild. When we hired them, they told us the timeframe for the entire project was 2 -3 months. The project ended up taking 7 months to complete. During this time, there were 5 weeks of delays due to weather, asbestos abatement, etc. that were beyond
North Tonawanda Water And Smoke Damage Specialists Provider Name Locked
's control.
North Tonawanda Water And Smoke Damage Specialists Provider Name Locked
, however, was fully responsible for the remainder of the delays. The water damage mitigation took place from mid February though the end of March and the rebuild took place from April through August.
Here are the major reasons my wife and I are leaving a negative review:
-During the water damage mitigation, the demolition crew did not take any measurements so that the rebuild crew would know how to rebuild areas the same as they were before. This caused the rebuild crew to have to redo items like framing in the shower niche.
-During the water mitigation, items such as switch plates, heat registers, curtain rod ends, shelving and other items were stored in the house and misplaced. When it came time to put them back,
North Tonawanda Water And Smoke Damage Specialists Provider Name Locked
had no idea where they were and asked my wife and I to look for them. Finally they ended up giving us credit for items that were not found. We did not enjoy having to spend our time looking for items that they should never have misplaced. It's not that difficult to put items in a plastic bag or box and label it.
-When I was told all of the damaged areas were removed, I walked through to inspect and found two areas with dry wall that had very noticeable water damage that were not removed. They ended up removing the damaged material, but they should have inspected their work before telling me they were finished.
-The rebuild project manager sent us the first scope of work with out reviewing it. There were several errors that took a week for
North Tonawanda Water And Smoke Damage Specialists Provider Name Locked
to correct before we would sign.
-Because the original tile that we chose was discontinued, we had to choose different tile. Due to this, revisions had to be made to the original scope of work. Again, the project manager sent the scope of work before reviewing it. The changes in scope should have only been for the tile, but we found that there were changes in scope for rooms not affected by the tile. I'm still not sure how there were changes to the scope of work to rooms not affected by the tile change but there were several. It took nearly two weeks for
North Tonawanda Water And Smoke Damage Specialists Provider Name Locked
to correct these errors. The worst part was that they cancelled all work, until the scope of work was corrected and approved by us. We were then told it would take a month to reschedule the work.
-When I told the project manager the type of texture I wanted on the walls, he told me they did not do things that way and they used a different type that was noticeably different. I was not satisfied with the texture they used, but at this point in the project, we had already been out of our house for 4 months. We did not want to delay the project further, so we settled on their texture. We will give
North Tonawanda Water And Smoke Damage Specialists Provider Name Locked
partial credit on this, as they ended up giving us an appearance credit in the final scope of work.
-The rebuild consisted of drywall, tile work in the bathroom, and reinstalling the kitchen cabinets, counter tops and kitchen sink.
The rebuild started in early April and the kitchen cabinets were not installed until the first week of June. The kitchen sink was not hooked up until the last week of
North Tonawanda Water And Smoke Damage Specialists Provider Name Locked
.
-The first contractor they hired to do the bathroom tile ordered 20 square feet of tile more than we needed (we only needed about 55 square feet. Because we ordered tile that was more expensive than what we originally had, we had to pay for the difference. When I asked
North Tonawanda Water And Smoke Damage Specialists Provider Name Locked
if I had to pay for the excess tile, their response was that I signed the scope of work. In my opinion, it was pathetic for
North Tonawanda Water And Smoke Damage Specialists Provider Name Locked
not to take responsibility for their contractors mistake. It should not be their policy to have their customers pay for their contractors' mistakes.
-Right before their first tile subcontractor was to start work, he took other jobs and told us it would take a couple weeks before he could get to us.
-The lone bright spot of the project was their second tile subcontractor. He was very nice and professional and did an amazing job. I will leave a separate positive review for him.
-My wife and I each work 40+ hours a week. Because of this, if we have quick comments or questions it is easier for us to email rather than take breaks at work for phone calls. The project manager ignored all of our emails for about 5 weeks. We finally had to contract his manager so that he would become more responsive.
In summary,
North Tonawanda Water And Smoke Damage Specialists Provider Name Locked
does not pay any attention to details or take proper measurements. Because of this, accessories get lost and work needs to be redone. They also don't adequately review their work. This causes them to present poor unfinished, work to their customers.
North Tonawanda Water And Smoke Damage Specialists Provider Name Locked
does not stand behind their work and if they make measurement mistakes they will tell the customer they are out of luck because they signed the scope of work. Many of
North Tonawanda Water And Smoke Damage Specialists Provider Name Locked
's contractors don't respect the homeowner and leave the lights on at the end of the day, do not clean up at the end of the day, or schedule other work so that work for
North Tonawanda Water And Smoke Damage Specialists Provider Name Locked
is delayed. I would not wish
North Tonawanda Water And Smoke Damage Specialists Provider Name Locked
on anyone, they are pathetic.

was great to work with. They were never pushy and were always quick to to address any issues/concerns we may have had. In the middle of our remodeling project, we had an unexpected flood in our basement and they were able to step up and take care of the restoration part of that project. You would never know we had any type of flooding as our basement looks better than ever! We are very happy with our new roof, siding, windows and deck. We had other bids for this project and theirs was the most reasonable. We are very happy with the products they recommended and the work they did. They always kept us informed as to when work would start and what to expect. We really enjoyed working with them and would happily recommend them to others.
