Recent Review: We got a citation from the city for the porch on the back of our two-flat. I got several quotes, but there's was the best. And the inspector said that Frackiel Construction is one of only two or three companies in the city that they can trust to not cut corners. They used larger bolts and better reinforcement than they had to. And they pounded the nails by hand (instead of using nail guns), which he said gives better results.
Recent Review: Their estimator Damien came by very shortly (next day!) after we emailed request for a proposal. He was extremely knowledgable and able to thoroughly explain to me (somewhat over my head, actually; but the terminology he used was impressive) all of the issues with the existing stairs and the improved features of the new (proposed) stairs. We had a couple of other contractors come and give estimates, but Solid's was considerably cheaper, and every bit as comprehensive and professional, if not more. We called and asked them to start. The standard delay ensued, waiting for city permit approval. Once that passed they got right on the job. They tore down the old staircase in one day. Then, work was delayed by RAIN, mostly--no fault of the company-- but all the new lumber waited on our back patio for about a week. In their defense, they were probably scheduled for another job, and had to work us in around it, after the rain set them back. All told, they got the new porch up in about three days of actual working on it. The work looks very clean; the crew was polite and courteous, though none seemed to speak much English. We would certainly recommend them, and use them in the future. Thanks, guys!
Recent Review: After one unreturned message, I reached dominik on the second try and he was extremely responsive thereafter. The painter that actually performed the work was very courteous and professional. Dominik came by a couple of times to oversee the work. Overall, we were very happy with the job: quickly resolved and well done.
Recent Review: The owner discussed with me the project in detail, the process, staffing, work hours, and time schedule. On the start date the contractor arrived at 9:00 and became the job. Day one, they removed the old porch and framed the new porch. Day two completed framing of porch and began construction of new porch. Day three, finish construction and of porch and instructed sliding. I inspected the job the following week and approved job. J. Sitko Construction did an outstanding job.
they have done several jobs, big and small on my home and on some income property. they have done windows, tuckpointing, a sidewalk and a porch for an apartment building. Their proposals are precise and detailed. Questions regarding proposals are answered quickly. The work is done on schedule ,providing weather does not interfere. They never leave a mess One of my tenants did not even know they had replaced 11 windows in her apartment when she came home from work, there was no mess left, They have done windows in my house and I can say the same thing, They do a clean job and clean up any debris, every speck of it. They may be about 5 to 8% higher than other bids I have received in some instances. but I chose them for all the reasons stated before. I can count on them to do a good job and timely job I have had a few other jobs done by others and there has usually been a problem of one kind or the other I made the mistake of choosing another contractor because they were cheaper I have .have always regretting not having chosen Premier because in the long run, it really was not cheaper after all the frustrations, and clean up and correctio0ns needed.

Because I was in dire need of a new porch, due to the fact the old one was crumbling and wouldn't last the harsh winter that was ahead and I needed to get a new porch quickly and for that reason I feel as though I was taken advantage of.

Two man crew showed up on time and demo'd existing porch in about 90 minutes. Demo'd porch placed in dumpster and immediately removed from property. New porch constructed in 1.5 days. Paraffin oil sealant applied to new porch. Site was left perfectly clean. Crew supervisor came by twice to evaluate progress/quality. Our condo association couldn't be happier with the quality, craftsmanship, and professionalism of Mr. Porch. Very impressed with the speed with which the job was completed. We requested a change in the specs after the crew was on-site and the change exceeded our expectations. Happy to recommend Mr. Porch to anyone looking for porch rebuilding or repair.

Our condo building's porch was 12 yrs old and wasn't up to code nor in very good shape. We needed a complete tear-down and rebuild in order to address all problems. The guys from R&W were comprehensively the best bid out of the 8 companies we contacted. Once they started the work they were very prompt and clean. The teardown was quick and they kept all of the debris contained as well as protected our sliding glass doors from damage. Their rebuild is so much more solid than our original porch. And, it's built exactly to the dimensions and specifications they committed to originally. It was fast, looks great, and was priced great. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to do porch work.

They removed the old porch. I designed the new porch myself and they built it. The carpenter made a mistake but they were very responsive and fixed it the next day. We are very happy with all of the updates.

We are over the moon with our new front porch! Dino and Lizz were so easy to work with and came up with great ideas for the design. The work was done in a timely manner and the quality was top-notch. We couldn't be more pleased and we look forward to working with them on future projects.

From day 1 this company has provided excellent customer service. For us it was one stop shopping: They provided the architectural porch drawings, applied for and picked up the permits and built a wonderful porch in the time period they promised. Their price was good compared to the other quotes we received. They also provide tuck pointing for us. The workers were very clean and the tuck pointing was done in 1 day. I would highly recommend them to anyone in need of a new porch or porch repairs. J Sitko Construction has been the easiest and most flexible company for us to work with. Thank you J Sitko !

DThe Smart Houses Solutions
Smart House Solutions was recommended to me by Mike Friedman who is also a salesman for another Angie's List member who was not liscenced in my community. He arranged for Greg to come out on a Monday for an estimate. Greg seemed knowledgeable and said he would have me a quote on Wednesday which never came. I never received a courtesy call or email to update me? I waited till Friday and emailed Mike and Greg about when I could expect the Qoute. Greg said he would email me the qoute that day. I received an undetailed estimate the next day which did not break the cost per item being done. I emailed back questions to Greg and Mike and asked for a new estimate that itemized details and cost. On the following Tuesday, after not hearing anything, I again emailed back asking when I could expect a new estimate? I got an email from Mike that Greg is a busy man and I would have to wait till he gets around to it. I waited over another week and no correspondence. Is this poor customer service what I could expect if I hired them?
