Wendel Klein Builders did a fantastic job. We had damage on two walls from ice dams last winter. They came in, assessed the damage, and provided a reasonable estimate for repair. The work got delayed a little longer than we were expecting due to competing projects, however once we decided to put our house up for sale in a hurry, we asked if he could squeeze us in and he was able to start the very next day due to a cancellation. Once they came in and opened up the wall, it was revealed that the damage was much less extensive than originally expected. Once all the work was done, the final bill was only 25-30% of what we expected, which was a very pleasant surprise! The guys were very courteous, professional and took great care within our house. The finished product looked excellent and we were very pleased!

AJEO MASONRY & TILE
JEO Masonry was fantastic -- Getting access to the wall in need of repair wall required moving a water heater. JEO preferred that I coordinate directly with the Plumber but gave me a great recommendation (W Leblanc plumbing). Due to the plumber's schedule we had to move the work date several times. During the entire process John was exceptionally responsive (we communicated mostly by text message) and flexible. He showed up when he said he would, and did the job very professionally, and was true to his original estimate. I would recommend John in a heartbeat.

ACrystal Painting Services
The cleaning service- I have used Crystal Cleaning for over 10 years and love them. They are so wonderful and accommodating. The women were so good to my golden retriever. The house is cleaned top to bottom. The house is immaculate after they are done! I wish I could do every week instead of every 2 weeks! The painting service- Such a great crew. They were so professional and respectful. Placed barriers on my wood floors to protect them as they came in and out. They repaired a huge hole in the wall and you would never know it was there. Their plastering is immaculate. The baseboard was perfectly done. They were so clean and the painting is perfect. I was very impressed. Both of these services are run professionally, punctual, and do a great job. I highly recommend them. Leonard is so easy to deal with and easy to get in touch with which is huge.

They are true professionals in every sense of the word. Thank You Bob & Crew

AEDDIE MAC'S HOME IMPROVEMENT LLC
I had a very bad experience with a previous contractor. Ed came recommended, as did the previous contractor. However, Ed was a saving grace. He restored my faith that there are honest, reliable contractors out there. He was just great. He was always on time, called to update me, let me know immediately of any issues or concerns, finished the job on time as estimated, had no hidden costs (his price was reasonable), was right on budget, ensured proper permits were in place, had excellent workmanship, and had good attention to detail and quality of work. He took extra care to ensure I was ''completely'' satisfied.

The whole experience was great. I was very nervous in the beginning, as this was my first time doing a renovation, but Alessandro and his team were fantastic. The house is very old, built in 1849 with a lot of detail, but nothing phased them, and they knew how to handle everything. Everyone was very professional and friendly, and VERY responsive. Everything they were doing was explained each step of the way. when there was a question or a decision needed, they never failed to call, and Alessandro was always reachable when I had a question. The quality of work exceeded my expectations, and it was done earlier than anticipated. as an example of the quality, the new dry wall made the old floor moldings in the lounge flush with the wall, which I had assumed - they were obviously a later replacement and not very nice. to my surprise, when I got home from work the next day, not only were there new moldings, but they were nicer and a better quality than what was there previously. when I asked about it, the gentleman said "they should match the other moldings in the room". I soon learned to expect a very high level of quality. thanks to them, I'm already planning my next renovation and looking forward to it, instead of dreading it. and of course I'll be using Alessandro and his team. I have already recommended them to anyone who I hear is looking to get any kind of work done. Oh, and their prices are very reasonable, particularly given the quality of both the work and communication. I can't say there were NO surprises, but I can say that every surprise was a good one! If Angie let me give an A+, I would!

Matt did an excellent job. He was punctual, worked 9-10 hour days, and paid attention to the details of the job. He also cleaned up after each day so as not to fulling interfere with the usual use of the rooms. Matt was also friendly and engaging. His costs were reasonable. I would definitely, without reservation, rehire him and recommend him for future jobs.

This fall, we chose Greg and his team to rebuild our front stairs and repair our retaining walls. The cost of the job was higher than we expected, but we really had no idea what to expect for price in the area of masonry. In any case, after meeting with Greg, there was no doubt that we would choose M-Fal Masonry to do the job. Greg was personable, made great suggestions, and was considerate of our wants and needs when discussing the project. His proposal was well-written and thorough. He was available for communication and responded to our emails promptly. Throughout the project, Greg made recommendations and adjustments as needed so that he could do the best job possible and stay within our budget. He went out of his way to make sure the stone he planned on using was a good match to what we already had and that it was to our liking. It was clear that Greg and his masons cared about the job they were doing. The guys were here bright and early, six days a week until the job was completed. When they were not 100% satisfied with proposed repair of cracks in the cap of our retaining wall, they replaced the whole cap instead at no extra charge. They worked with care and were clearly invested in getting things done right. When the masonry was finished, they cleaned up well, laying down sod and providing grass seed to fix any lawn areas that were affected. The rebuilt stairs and repaired walls turned out beautifully, and I think Greg would have accepted no less! He stands behind his work and his reputation and cares that the customer is satisfied. I highly recommend Greg and his team at M-Fal Masonry. You will get your money's worth and won't be disappointed. Marianne and Wayne H.
Recent Review: It went very well. The wall was rebuilt with the proper drainage (which our wall did not originally have). Since the same stones were used, the repair work blends in perfectly with the existing portions of the wall. The workers cleaned up at the end of every day.

Recent Review: Leo and his team were great to work with. They did a big project efficiently while not impacting the quality. We were very happy with the work, Leo and his team provided. Leo was able to quote multiple options for the project to help with our budget. We never felt pressure to do more than we wanted or could take on. We highly recommend him and his team.
Recent Review: The painters from Color Matters Painting put the finishing touches on a recently renovated full bath. The painted the walls, replaced and painted trim, and paid attention to every little detail. Upon completion, the new paint was what made the bathroom come together. These guys were quick but paid close attention to every detail. I ill work with Color Matters for other projects in my home in the future. No doubt.
Recent Review: We initially hired Jorge and his team to do a patio and walkway in our back yard. The quality of the work was just great. Jorge recommended nice materials, and the installation was done with care and considerable artistry. They also graded some of the yard after a construction project, spread some loam and seeded a new lawn. The outcome was excellent. We were going to wait until spring to replace our front yard stairs, retaining wall and walkways, but when Jorge said they would be able to get to it this fall we decided to ask him to do that work too. It was a bigger job than the first, but the results are also very, very nice. What I especially like about Jorge is how willing he is to listen to concerns and quickly address them.
Recent Review: We hired Carlos to help us update an expanded 50?s ranch house. His company did an excellent job on interior projects (see our ?interior? review) so we took his bid on painting our house and repairing outside wood working. He gave us a detailed listing of work to be down and continued to update the list as we added more work to the project. His invoices included copies of material costs receipts. His crew brought a new meaning to ?power washing.? They did a very thorough job with great attention to detail. His carpenters rebuilt many rotted window frames and a difficult 8-sided portal window over the attic. The work was exacting and everything was sealed properly. I had asked Carlos to demolish a 60-year-old shed in the back yard and remove the materials. After inspection he recommended repairing the shed as it was solidly constructed, and would cost more to tear down and remove than to rebuild. I was skeptical but agreed. The final painted result is now an actual property asset, we were very impressed. The fact that Carlos is always available made a huge difference as work progressed. My wife and I had picked a color for the house from a catalog and foolishly requested it without painting test samples on the house. In bright daylight it was horrible. When I came home and saw it I immediately called Carlos who stopped work and let us pick a new color. It was our fault, but he gave us a very reasonable price for redoing 2 coats with a new color that we now love. The crew was polite, always on time, and cleaned up everything as they worked. Their work was excellent and Carlos always kept on schedule and kept me informed on all work. I can?t think of anything that Carlos and his crew didn?t execute better than I had expected.
Recent Review: Everyone at Macauley Brothers landscaping is the best! From the owner, to the people that work in the office, and especially to the crew that did work at my house. Bernie came right out and gave me a estimate and said he was going to be there at that specific time. Not like other contractors who cancel 2 or 3 times or never even show up! The work I did at my house was about a 2ft high retaining wall by about 35ft long. Also had a pretty big stump removed as well. Gus and his crew are amazing! They went way above and beyond my expectations. I am soooo happy I went with Macauley brothers landscaping. And if you hire them for future projects you will be as well! I could go on and on about their workmanship all day. They are professional, courteous and most of all they know what they are doing when it comes to everything especially hardscape. Thank you Bernie and Gus and everyone at Macauley brothers! I love my retaining wall and can't wait till the spring for you guys to do my front wall. 10 out of 10 stars in my book. Call them you won't be disappointed. Thanks Again!
