Recent Review: Hired this contractor and he had them rebuilt in no time, very fair bid, showed up (that is in itself a big bonus) when they were scheduled. Love these guys. No issues with the rebuild and we made it thru a very wet season last year and rebuild looks better aesthetically than initial build.

Recent Review: The work was good.  They were little bit flakey in terms of how much time went between their coming back to the site to complete the work, so the work took way much longer than I would have expected because they would not come back to finish.  It was several weeks ago before they came to the site.  The waterproofing was very difficult and they did keep coming back eventually until the problem was fixed.

Recent Review: My rental property in Venice needed some unexpected repairs before the rainy season hit (a patio deck leaking into a downstairs bedroom and fallen rain gutter). After consulting many, many contractors and specialists I found Danny at Goodfellas. He was good at explaining the process his guys would take and gave a reasonable cost. My deck was waterproofed and re-tiled in two weeks. The workers were mindful of my tenants and cleaned up thoroughly when the work was complete. Overall it was a smooth experience. Danny is a pro.?

Recent Review: The work went beautifully!  Fred Ford, the owner of A2Z, came out, took a look at the work that needed to be done and gave me an estimate.  The estimate was not only lower than the previous two estimates I had gotten, but also included Fred's obtaining the necessary permits (of the other two, one had not even mentioned a permit, the other had told me a permit was "optional" and I could get one or not, as I chose).  I originally had planned only to have the dry rot repaired and part of the siding replaced with hardibacker.  Fred offered to replace one of the sliding glass doors for free if I wanted to purchase it.  Since the existing door was single pane, I decided to have it replaced.  Then I decided it would be foolish to have just the slider replaced without replacing the window as well.  One thing led to another and resulted in my having all the windows replaced with energy efficient double-pane windows.  (The existing windows had been "jury rigged" with double windows whose sole function seemed to be to provide homes for spiders and were impossible to clean.) I also had the existing sliding glass doors replaced.   Many of the outside lights did not function.  Fred removed the ones I didn't want and fixed the wiring on the ones I did want (many of which did not turn on).  On one of the walls he had to rebuild because of termite damage, Fred installed a larger window than had been there before.  This involved inside drywall work.  The wall the outside pipes had been on was also damaged by water.  Fred also replaced the drywall on that side of the house.  He textured the new drywall to match the existing drywall.  It looks beautiful! As the crew worked, they repaired the previous contractor's shoddy work.  At each stage, Fred made sure I was happy with the progress and what they were doing. Fred is a meticulous worker.  If one of his crew did some work that didn't quite meet his standards, Fred would have him tear it out and replace it to higher standards and explain why the new way of doing things was better than the way it had been.  When the county inspector came out to check his work, he was very impressed.  Many of the elements Fred had installed were new to the inspector, but the inspector admitted it was an improvement over the "old" way.   Although (or because) he is an exacting boss, Fred's crew enjoy working with and for him.  They know they can take pride in the work they do.  I had a roofer come out and give me an estimate for the roof who tried to hire Fred's foreman away from him.  Jesse told the person, "Nope.  It wouldn't be like working for Fred." There is not room enough to detail all the structural omissions and things that were "wrong" with the house:  Framing was "pieced" together or completely lacking in some areas; headers over doors and windows were missing or were sub-standard.  Fred fixed it all as he went along. Painting seems like a simple job, but it isn't.  There are many details that make or break a paint job.  Fred and crew took care with all the detail work, asking me how I wanted something finished and explaining why they were doing things a certain way, making sure I was happy with the results. I am thrilled with how my house looks!  It looks like a new house!

On his bid, he copiously wrote it out, which is not standard for the practice.  He was meticulous in writing everything out.  He really helped me! He spent a long time explaining the burrito-ing of the French drain.  By the end of the project, I was an expert at waterproofing, French drains, and retaining walls.  He really taught me a lot and helped me through the project.  He followed up with a really nice phone call.  He was wonderful!

Waterproofing the basement- The solutions offered by your employee, Danny, are listed below.  Bold print refers to later recommendations by plumber and City employee I called in to advise. Red print indicates problem areas. ·        Stucco the foundation outside ·        Concrete for waterproofing as needed (Pour concrete outside the house 24 inches at the base of the house (underground) to seal the brick foundation.  Pour concrete inside the basement also to seal the bricks and add two rows of rebar for reinforcement inside and outside.  Problem: the concrete was over- poured about 6 inches above the ground creating an undesirable ?curb? appearance on one corner of the house.  Should have been no more than 1-2 inches above ground maximum.   I spoke to Julio before the concrete was poured into the trench and advised that it was not 24 inches deep and needed to be dug deeper.  He said that he was not finished yet but that he would ensure that it was 24 inches deep.  This absolutely takes away from the integrity of the 1903 house design that I was working to maintain. ·        Fill in holes (in brick walls) inside (Agreed to enclose in concrete instead) ·        Add trench and fill ·        Replace bricks as needed and refill  mortar (Agreed to cover bricks in concrete instead) ·        Stucco complete [walls] and concrete with wire mesh, stucco and paint (Stucco with wire mesh and painted only the two walls facing outside. Problem: No stucco or concrete was placed on the remaining 2 side walls.  After tearing out the old walls, it was learned that the previous walls were made of ply wood.  So, before they could reinstall proper new walls, new posts and footings needed to be installed where none existed.      Poor paint job provided.  Julio said that he ran out of paint.  The gray color of the concrete bleeds through and can still be seen. ·        Drywall complete ceiling and paint ·        Build concrete step ·        Place 2/4 over front door to support existing beam ·        Fabricate rubber flaps to add to the bottom and top of the basement door to prevent water from pouring in through the door.  Sealed openings with silicone where possible. Problem: Open spaces still exist at the top of the basement door where water can penetrate. ·        Filled in missing stucco at corners of the house.  Problem: the filled areas are not straight but are mis-shaped and poke outward.   Work inside the house was as follows: ·        Frame in new beams support as needed ·        Drywall ceiling as needed and paint ceiling ·        Sidewalls, fix cracks Problem: all cracks were not ?fixed? they were painted over so the cracked ?veins? (bulges) still exist.  Also noted were paint drips, and uneven surfaces, other painted over items were curtain fixtures, drawer knobs etc. Note: Julio cleaned off the drawer knobs but he shouldn?t have had to spend time doing this.   A fireplace brick was lost.  No one advised that the brick was lost and when I discovered it, Julio went looking but was only able to find ½ of the missing brick in the trash outside.  To resolve the lost brick, ?Danny? assured me that they would find a brick to match and if unable to find a match, they would replace that section of the fireplace to my satisfaction matching the existing fireplace bricks.    I reported all of this to ?Danny? and was told that to fix the cracks in the walls they would have to do the same process that they had done on the ceiling.  They were not going to do that.  As a customer, when the contract said ?fix cracks? I understood it to mean that they would do whatever process was necessary to smooth out the cracks in the walls and as professionals, they would also smooth out all paint drips, and fill in any divots or holes prior to painting. ·        Entry way, living room, dining room and paint off white (satin) ·        Good fellas to provide all labor and materials Further concerns: 1)      The project was to begin first thing Monday morning, July 30 2012. It did not actually start until the next day (Tuesday).  We did not get input from your plumber until Wednesday, August 1, 2012 with recommendations as to how to waterproof the basement.  His solution was to create a drain, attach a drainage pipe and pump the water away from the basement entrance.  Good information however, it would cost at least $3,000 more.  We needed to hear from your plumber BEFORE the waterproofing project began.  So, we could totally fix the problem.  I would have chosen to do the complete water proofing project vs. some other non-essential work.  a.       I had to call in someone who regularly handled waterproofing on Tuesday.  He gave advice re: cement and rebar placement and drainage.  Your plumber should have been called in at the beginning of the project for advice.     b.      I spoke to Danny on several occasions during the project when problems arose.  After hearing from your plumber, I requested that we do a change to the contract to put in the drainage work and take out some other work that was not so critical.  Danny advised me that he was not able to ?swap? out or do a change order to the existing contract to incorporate the recommended drainage process?too complicated. I notice that the contract did make provisions for ?change orders?.   IDEAL SOLUTION FOR PROBLEM AREAS (defective installation) 1) Minimize the ?curb? to 2 inches above ground. 2) Install basement walls, stucco and paint as planned or replace the plywood walls. 3) Do a good paint job on the concrete.  Put on a second coat of paint. 4) Cover existing openings on basement door with rubber facing 5) Straighten out stucco on corners of the house 6) Repair cracks, paint drips in the walls and paint 7) Locate or fabricate a fireplace brick that matches the missing one.
