Recent Review: First and foremost, John is an expert in what he does, so we certainly followed his lead. He came up with a reasonable plan that didn't involve removing all the drywall and making a huge mess. His approach is innovative and seems really smart. Second, I've never met a contractor more concerned with customer satisfaction. John is dedicated to doing anything to make sure his customers are satisfied. We coordinated a time for him to come; they arrived around 11am and he and his assistant got right to work. They drill holes, so there is definitely a bit of a mess, but they try to be as neat as possible. John actually borrowed our vacuum to make sure he left the house clean. They finished the job by 6pm that evening, after leaving for a period of time to get more foam. The bathroom was obviously warmer--the draft from the attic was gone. The bedrooms were harder to assess. John followed up to see how things were going. I explained that I was going to get our HVAC system evaluated, because the bedroom was still a bit cold. We had an email exchange where we discussed the costs vs. labor--with the amount of time involved, I wasn't sure if he had overestimated the labor costs. So John offered to come back and do another room at his own cost! Like I said, he is 100% concerned about customer satisfaction. Now that we know more about what's involved, we definitely feel like we can have an educated conversation about our needs. We'll continue to use John as we get our house more energy efficient.

Recent Review: Dan was a great find! He was fast and honest with his work. He did what he said he would in the time frame he estimated. He is diligent, honest and takes pride in his work! You won’t go wrong when you choose Dan.
They worked hard to finish on time and did an excellent job. Pat was very accomodating to my request that he fit the job in ASAP - and they were both very nice folks. The only small c**** was that they left a little bit of a mess downstairs in the basement that I didn't notice till after they left. But it was not a big deal - overall they were great and I'd use them again.

Carl was great. He arrived on time and was very professional. He installed the drop ceiling and also gave me a suggestion for how to handle a crawl space access door. He appears to be very knowledgable about all aspects of home repair and maintenance.

The job was delayed by a week as the subcontractors were not available. Then there were a series of people (basically whoever he could find) who came in and out of our home. They showed very little concern for our house. They did not take routine precaution such as putting up plastic barriers at the door, as a result for weeks, every night our home was covered in dust which we had to clean. We had to repeatedly ask them lay down paper so they don't leave dusty foot prints all over the house. We did everything including providing them with shoe covering but like incorrigible children they would forget to take them off, as they walked out of the work area. The pre-prep was non existent and they are not in the habit of cleaning up after themselves. Ramon was hired to install dry wall followed by a drop ceiling and then paint the area. In his wisdom he did the dry wall and then painted. This was for his convenience. The subcontractor he hired for painting was a sour man who left large areas unpainted and had to be brought back to finish the job. The other issue was because he painted before the drop ceiling, the drop ceiling installers left several marks on newly painted walls which need touch up, one more thing for us to do. The most disappointing part of the interaction was that Ramon had come to see the home at least three times before we agreed to hire him. Dry wall in a basement can present with several difficult situation which demand a professional solution. For example, he drywalled the utility area in the basement but did not not account for ventilation. I had to hire someone else to come and open the wall so the area would have proper ventilation. As a professional he should have known this. The job progressed slowly because Ramon moved on to another job leaving a day laborer and a semi skilled individual who plodded through. The job was often shoddy. They would fix something which would fall off the next day. Or they would forget to make sure the entire room needs to be inspected to make sure there were no area where insulation was visible. I still have at least three area which need attention but at this point I can't do anything about it as they have collected the money and are not under any obligation to respond. The most frustrating aspect of interaction with this contractor is that he does not listen closely nor is he in the habit of taking notes. As a result despite going over the job ad nauseam he needed to be reoriented every day. This created confusion and resulted in a poor job.

Sherif and his team did an awesome job finishing up a basement that partially started on my own. They corrected everything that I made a mistake on and got everything ready for me to paint. High quality, highly recommended. He worked on framing, insulation, drop ceiling, drywall and primered the walls (to be paint ready). Refinished my stairs and boxed up some ugly support beams. Also had electrical redone through 3rd party (his electrician was awesome to work with also.)

They installed recessed lighting, drywalled and painted the ceiling. I am not an expert in repairs but extremely detailed oriented and trust me when I say they did a great job; my photos don’t give them justice. I’m leery about people I don’t know in my space. They where very personable, nice and funny. I felt comfortable and actually already recommended their services to my colleagues. Unfortunately, I don’t have any before photos but think of a drop ceiling. I live in my basement and to be honest, the change of ceiling has made me happier all around. Some people remodel to sell but might as well do things gradually and get use out of it. Ceiling is a decent start cause you’re not going to mess it up in the day to day use of your home.

The contractor responded quickly to an enquiry that I sent via Angie's List. Though he declined this repair due to his current schedule, I did appreciate a response. In my search for a contractor, three out of the five companies I contacted did not respond at all. A fourth one did not come to an appointment and the last one cancelled on the day the work was supposed to be executed. I am now going to try my luck on HomeAdvisor.
