Painters please homeowner with their efficiency
Watertown, Mass., painting
Joseph Balsama's wooden shingle house is a new hue thanks to Abe Schickel & Co. Inc.
"They pressure washed my house, hand-scraped loose paint, primed the shingles and trim, and applied exterior paint," Balsama says.
"I changed my mind about the color after one coat, and Mr. Schickel sent a painter on a Sunday to apply a small patch of a replacement color for my approval. His entire crew was courteous, responsible and fast."
Roslindale, Mass., contractor
Sevi Construction stepped up to take on Laura Mayer's masonry job.
"They removed the long walkway and old brick steps and replaced them," Mayer says. "They always addressed my questions, and their last words were always, 'no problem,' with a smile.
"Sevi Construction even communicated with a town engineer to calculate the best location for an entry step to my front walk so it would align with the future street repaving."
Norwood, Mass., roofing
Because of Neponset Valley Roofing's professionalism, Kathy Cardoso says she chose them to replace her roof and 13 windows, install a door, and add new vinyl siding and gutters to her home.
"The roofers came in the morning and finished by midafternoon," Cardoso says. "My new roof looks amazing, and the cleanup went well. They did the other jobs the following week, and it was amazing how quickly they completed everything. I'm extremely satisfied."
Waltham, Mass., gutter repair
Roger Goguen Gutter Repair helped get Tim Wilson's gutters flowing freely again.
"Roger was excellent," Wilson says. "He flushed both of the gutters once he removed the debris, and he cleaned up after the project was over. It was quite a feat as the previous owners hadn't cleaned out the gutters in about 10 years. I'll use him again."
