From start to end I rate the quality of work performed by the Handyman was exceptional. However, after calculating the cost of the total job, $2305.00 minus materials and permit and cleaning, the total labor cost was $1720.00. The Handyman performing the work was on the job roughly twenty hours. That puts the labor rate at roughly $85 per hour. I don't think the person doing the work got anywhere near that amount per hour. If he did. great. But I doubt it. That means that the owner has built in a per hour rate for himself and added it to the rate of the Handyman doing the work. I rate this company very high in quality and very high in price. I don't think the labor rate was fair but paid it anyway. In the future I will hire a single professional and get his hourly rate before starting the job.

The only other company we used was Service Master at Scituate Harbor we which used we had a basement flood. The service they provided was remediation of water damage it was a flood so water damage restoration. The last time we contact them was July of 2013. The approximate cost of the service was $3,000. They came in and removed the water. Remove water from basement. They place drying equipment around. They removed the carpet and the padding and prevented the mold – that’s the big one. They were very good. They were also very responsive. They were timely. They were thorough. I think we ended up having no problems as a result of that so no molds. I would say that a quick call and they were right out and took care of the emergent situation as quickly as they could.

AHamel Painters Inc
We had water damage on all 3 floors or our triple decker in Boston due to a clogged drain on the roof. ServPro came to remove the damaged plaster and recommended Hamel Painting to do the repairs. Hamel did excellent job of providing a detailed quote and working with our insurance company. They were very punctual and always showed up when they said they would and did a good job of keeping us informed of what was going on. They did a great job of plastering and painting as well as sanding and refinishing our floors.

ASERVPRO NEWTON/WELLESLEY (Under New Ownership)
Both the person who came to give us an estimate (the owner of the company, if I'm not mistaken), and the foreman of the job were extremely punctual, courteous, and willing to educate me on the water/mold situation in our basement. They scheduled us quickly, worked neatly, and were even considerate of preserving our flower beds when they brought large equipment into the house. They sealed the basement so that no fumes or particles entered the rest of the house, and left their equipment here for a few days to finish the job. I was extremely pleased with the whole experience.

Fast, Reliable and Courteous. I would recommend this company and plan to use them for future projects. I love that I found a expert roofing company that was also a general contractor so they could handle the water damage repair as well as replacing the roof. Very competitive in pricing as well. He also had a great hardworking crew that cleaned up and stayed on schedule

Tom is a seasoned professional in his trade. From quoting the work, being at the job at the time he said, laying out tarps and mats to catch all the debris, executing the work, and cleaning up mess afterwards was flawless. Tom is a very likable person and easy to talk with. He will answer any questions you have. I highly recommend him and will definitely use him for any future work I have.

A pipe in my second floor bathroom burst causing damage to everything below. Scott and his crew were there within an hour and he took care of everything! He dealt with everything from the clean up to even dealing with the insurance company. Efficient Buildings made a stressful situation that much easier.

ANewton Fire and Flood Inc.
Our street flooded in a heavy rain and the water flowed into our underground garage and into the finished basement. I called Newton Fire and Flood and Phillip called me back within 10 min. He and his workers came to the house within a half hour. Phillip is extremely knowledgeable about removing flood water and avoiding mold. He was very professional and acted quickly. After I realized that our insurance policy does not cover flood damage, I was able to negotiate a price with Phillip. He had all the equipment and workers here within minutes and they worked for most of the day. They removed water from the finished part of the basement. Fortunately, there was no mud in this area, just water. The garage had a lot stuff that they moved outside, sorted the damaged/wet items from the non-damaged items, removed water and a layer of mud. The garage floor looked like new again. Phillip recommended taking off the baseboard in some areas and making holes in the walls, which was done by our contractors, who are finishing construction in the house. Newton Fire and Flood left big fans and heavy-duty dehumidifiers all over the garage and basement for several days to dry out the area. Phillip came in a couple of times to check how it was drying. We purchased our own moisture meter on Amazon, which I would recommend doing. It wasn't expensive, and helped us assess the moisture level in the walls. By the time, Phillip picked up the fans and dehumidifiers everything had dried sufficiently.

When I had some water damage in my basement I called Bedford Builders right away not even sure if they could help. Bob went right to work to identify the problem and assist in resolving it. Bob was prompt, courteous and meticulous. I would consider Bedford Builders for any project or disastrous situation that’s comes next!

Tom was very responsive. He came out the same day I initially contacted him and assessed the ceilings. He was informative and friendly. He worked quickly and the repairs look fantastic. I would totally hire him again.
Recent Review: The install went as smoothly as possible in a single day, by the time I go home from work the old floor had been removed, the new floor was down, and they even replaced all the furniture(which is pretty heavy) back into them room. It was like they were never there! Joe and his crew continue to impress, I have recommended him highly in the past to friends, and the fact that he took it upon himself to fix the floor for a problem which had nothing to do with his work just shows how dedicated Joe is to having flawless work and happy customers. If you need a contractor for large or small jobs I would highly suggest you give Joe Bertola a call!
Recent Review: Guy came on time and was very nice. He was very helpful as I had an investigator there to write up a report of water damage to my apt. He found some helpful evidence to support the cause of leakage. Because I'm working with several parties before I can actually do work on apt, I have not used his services yet. Hugely appreciate his openness for advice on matters about water damage and molds, and when he says he'll return your messages or calls, he does follow through in a very timely manner - like that same day or next day!
Recent Review: It was wonderful. They're coming on June 22nd to do the work. They gave me a quote of around $5000. The man was very nice and very kind. He was very soft spoken. I understood everything he said. He didn't run right to the process. My family kind of liked them too.
