Recent Review: Very impressed with Lorenzo Enterprises.  Left a voicemail to schedule an appointment in the late afternoon.  My call was returned first thing the next morning.  A repair technician called me back approximately two hours later to schedule a specific day/time.  Lucky for me, Anthony was able to assist me the same day.  Anthony was very friendly and professional.  He arrived early and went right to work.  He finished the job quickly.  He also explained the problem to me and helped me understand how I could avoid the creating the problem again in the future.  I highly recommend Lorenzo Enterprises and would do business with them again without hesitation!

Recent Review: Patrick was dispatched to my house by my home warranty company to fix a leak that was flooding into my garage and bathroom. He arrived early in the afternoon and quickly found the problem. He was able to fix it quickly and suggested that I contact my homeowner's insurance to file a claim. He also tested my water and explained how the leak started in the first place. He was very patient and explained everything to me in great detail. He was very professional and even called me three days later to make sure that there were no more problems with the leak! He suggested a water softener to me. It wasn't a hard sell, just an honest assessment of what I may want to avoid the same problem in the future. I was very please with this company's service and will be giving them business in the future.

Recent Review: He tightened the nut. This did not stop the leak, but he said, "Well, I slowed it down." He didn't. I had another plumber come and look at it. He told me that, if anything, the gasket was crushed, and the part would have to be replaced. The second plumber agreed with the original plumber that the pumps on the barely 3 year old furnace needed to be replaced. However, in order to get to the pumps, either the furnace would have to be cut open, or all the pipes above it replaced since, when the furnace was installed, the Sheppard plumber slid it in under the existing pipes without leaving enough clearance to take the top off. So, a job that should have cost just the amount of the pumps has become a fairly large undertaking.

Recent Review: His prices are more than fair and the quality of his work is excellent. I have owned a home(s) for almost 40 years and Mark Fiori is the BEST PLUMBER I have ever had the pleasure of working with. He is punctual, his prices are fair, he cleans up after himself and he is a genuinely nice guy. He will tell you up front what can be accomplished and what it will cost. He has talked me out of some major stupidity by simply telling me it was impossible. That turned out to be excellent advice.

FAlaska Foundation Technology
DELAYS, THEFT FROM HOMEOWNERS, UNDER QUALIFIED!! This company was on it from the get-go but went downhill fast. It was winter and they were eager for work. We had an insurance claim to repair a broken floor joist that was causing our weight bearing wall to sag. The work began January 2014. The initial foundation repair went ok. The contractors were NOT timely. They did the underneath work fairly rapidly but were not qualified to do all the work that was part of the job. First, our heat kept going out because they kept turning the furnace down/off and wouldn't make sure it was working when they left at the end of the day. They had taken the intake piping for the furnace off to build the new wall. The only air for the furnace  to draw from was the exhaust, creating a potential CARBON MONOXIDE poisoning issue. Second, our water heater went out a couple of times. Why? Two reasons, the air from the furnace circulating in the crawl space blew out the pilot light. Second, they had unplugged the sump pump  and the entire crawlspace filled with water from ground seepage. Third, when they finally came up into the house to do the interior work, it was obvious that they were not qualified to frame and build a wall. The employee running the job told me that a bid for interior sheet rock and wall work was too expensive and his  boss wouldn't allow for that. The owner, Scott, told us that was not true after seeing the horrible wall they built. It was so bad it had to be redone multiple times.  It was so out of square that the trim they cut looked like a wedge of cheese! They were inside the house 3 weeks, before I kicked them out, to build out a wall, replace a French door, sheetrock and paint. The crew was not experienced in hanging doors and almost broke the new door. It disrupted our whole schedule for much longer than was necessary or reasonable. Perhaps the worst offense is that one of the crew stole from us! He took our Iphone 4, which our son used as an Ipod. He waited 2 months before he hooked it up but we were able to track it. The best thing Scott did for us was to get it back from him, however, he wasn't fired and is still being sent on jobs. The repair was engineered. The bank held the money in escrow and released the funds upon completion inspection by their agent. This company has been paid in full, the engineer says all work is NOT complete and some corrections need to be made.  In the almost a year since completion, we have had several appointments for the repair to be finished which have never come about. Our house is not complete and now they are not answering the phone or returning any calls. If we want our engineering report to be finalized and signed off on, it looks like we will have to spend more of 1)our own time and money personally finishing the repairs or 2) hire another contractor out of our own pocket to finish the repairs. BOTTOM LINE? I would say this company is under qualified for the work they did apart from the foundation and are thieves. If you hire them, be home at all times, lock up your valuables, insist on qualified heating and interior sub contractors, and DO NOT PAY THEM IN FULL UNTIL ALL THE WORK IS COMPLETED.
