Reviews in Pittsburgh to Building a Pergola

BGRUNDEN LANDSCAPING
After 4 bids, I chose Grunden. Paid deposit. Waited for nearly 2 months for work to start. When Rob did return phone calls, he cited weather as the problem. Once work started , it went rather quickly. Crew guys very nice. I was very specific with my design, and they copied it perfectly. However, landscaping another issue. I asked for blue spruce. They didn't plant blue spruce. When I returned home from work to see this, Rob told me the trees he planted were nicer. By fall, the dogwoods were dead. We repeatedly called with limited response. Waited til spring. Called again. He said rough winter, will replace. As of today, August 23rd, NOTHING. We pulled out dead trees. Planted in total clay. After researching this, nothing can grow in that. Those beds were supposed to be topsoil. I am happy with the patio, walkway, and pergola. But customer service is lacking. After paying 26,000, I do not feel it is too much to ask to have these trees replaced. And now that I realize the soil is bad, I want that taken care of too. I plan on filing a complaint with the BBB. Last call that I made to Grunden, the mailbox was full.

AS.C. Hilpert General Contractor
Steve was thorough in his discussions about the project. I'm usually pretty detailed about projects and think things through. Steve would bring things up that I hadn't thought of and my wife and I appreciated the time he took. He also considered that there were several options for our design to choose from and he walked us through the pros and cons. For example, the way that lights would be spaced on our wall between windows and doors was not technically even, but looked good given the spacing of those openings. Also, he showed us a couple of options for the size and spacing of slats for our roof vent so we could preview it before it was created. Steve does not run a big company, so you get really personalized service. He is part of the projects as they happen. This also means that his availability to do projects varies. But, he is proactive about his availability and once he starts a job he and his team are on-site until it's finished. This was our second or third project with him. At the beginning, he installed a sliding door and a pair of doors with sidelights that open onto our patio. These were installed about five years ago and we love them. In fact, he has done almost all the outside work on our house over the last five years, including unanticipated problem areas. Would highly recommend Steve for a job.

AIsbir Construction & Landscape Corp
Very responsive, professional and patient (we are clueless when it comes to this stuff). Mike came by and did a walkthrough of our property and asked a lot of questions on what we were interested in. We met with the landscape architect a few times, who created us a full blown landscape plan, this probably took a month. Once we approved it, Mike wrote up and walked us through an estimate (oh my gosh is this stuff expensive). Suffice to say, the inground hot tub ended up on the editing floor. Part of our design was a free standing structure called a pergola, which was part of the plan, but we decided to purchase that piece ourselves. That took at while for us to decide and the team needed the specs to make it work. So that took another month, but that was us, not ISBIR. Once we got things settled, they started right away; it took them 10 working days to complete. They came by about a month later to put up the pergola as well as periodically stopping by to checked out how the plants were doing. They also came back and replaced plants that didn't make (there wasn't many).

I searched the Better Business Bureau and found good comments about Rick there.  I contacted him through the BB website and he responded within a a day or two.  he came out and made some suggestions and then he quoted on the the 2 retaining walls.  we then increased the project size based based on good discussions with Rick and he also made adjustments to the quote. day 2 status report - good quality work so far, friendly and hard working workers.  these guys keep the site clean considering the inherent dirty work involved.  work starts promptly at 8am and ends by 3:30pm.  so far I am very pleased and would recommend Ricks service to my close friends.  i'll give more updates and a final assessment when the work is complete.

ASWEET SUCCESS CONTRACTORS
Chris originally told me they would start at the end of September or beginning of October but, when there was a delay with another job, they actually started August 23. They always started at either 7 or 8 AM. There were usually five or six trucks in my driveway. I had a big project and odds and ends that took two weeks to complete. I have two decks, 18’ x 24’ and 12’ x 8’, that are about 27 years old. They were showing their age - some boards were loose, steps were no longer attached, one board was rotted, railings were loose, etc. The top layer of the pergola was in bad shape - the person who had previously power washed and stained for me just refused to get up there to do anything with it, so it was pretty black and disgusting. Chris advised that it would be a lot cheaper to just remove that layer, rather than sand it down and paint it. I didn’t need it for the shade so that’s what they did. He advised that instead of staining, to use Dock and Deck paint that should last at least 5-6 years without needing anything. They replaced deck screws, added supports (they even framed in a couple of supports on the main deck floor to make them look better), sanded all the wood and painted everything. They covered my plants while they painted. I have a plastic shed that was pretty dirty. I had tried to power wash it in the past but with poor results. Chris also tried power washing but then used his house cleaning formula and now it looks like new. They power-washed my sidewalks - what a difference! Nothing had been done with my garage since it was built in 1956. They repaired the holes in the drywall, removed old shelving, framed in the glass block window, covered an old air duct that was stuffed with bricks, installed attic stairs to provide access to the storage above the garage (until now I had to put up a ladder to a little door on the outside of the garage), added some flooring to prevent anyone from falling through, cleaned the garage floor, stained the cement block and painted the drywall. They installed new lighting, new shelving, a tool organizer, and a bumper pad. They even installed a tennis ball on a rope as a guide for parking. I’m no longer embarrassed for anyone to see the garage. My mudroom needed an overhaul. They repaired a cement step, painted the walls, ceiling, door, trim and floor. Chris was very helpful with color choice and types of paint. They removed the existing coat hooks and installed new shelving, A previous bad paint job had left white paint on red brick in several places. Chris was able to camouflage it with red paint. The doors on my shed weren't closing properly and the double door was pulling apart from the frame. Houston had to try several different things but I now have doors that open and close easily. The shed had some rot at the bottom so they put a cedar frame around the bottom - it looks like new. They hung my house number, sanded and painted the wrought iron railing, sanded and painted the front door step, and repaired a large crack in the cement that went from column to column (and did it in the original pattern). They painted the Hurricane door and steps leading to the basement. They replaced some stained ceiling tiles in my basement. I had a closet under my basement steps that had never been finished - the left side was brick and there was a post from floor to ceiling. They completely finished off the closet and even added cove molding for a better appearance. There was some very bad plasterwork at the bottom of the walls above my basement stairs. They repaired that and painted the walls a lighter color which made a big difference in the amount of brightness in the stairwell. I have a dusk to dawn light on a 14 foot pole that has been leaning at about a 10 degree angle since my daughter backed into it years ago. Chris was able to tie a rope around it and pull it with his truck to a near perfect upright position. All of the workers (Chris, Houston, Greg, Keandre, Jake, Paul, Chester) were very pleasant, respectful, answered all of my questions, and addressed my concerns. There were a couple of things that they said if they tried to fix them, they would come out worse, so they didn’t. The leftover paint was all labeled. I had a lot of sawdust and some plaster dust to contend with, but I expected that. Total cost was $24,842. It was more than what I originally envisioned for everything, but I hadn’t foreseen the need to sand down all the wood. Now my decks are like new, solid, and I’m happy with the color. Chris gave me advice on what to use to maintain the decks, instead of power washing. About 2 weeks after completion we had a heavy rain and one of the main deck floor boards popped up. Also, some lattice work became loose when I was blowing leaves. I called Chris and he came that weekend to correct both issues. It feels good to finally get a bunch of things taken off my to-do list! I had planned to attach pictures but apparently I can't do that on this site. If you want someone who’s going to show up and do what they promise, call Sweet Success Contractors.
