I've done endless amounts of work over the last dozen years remodeling two old homes. Kalex is easily in the top three of all the companies I have hired over the years. I couldn't be more satisfied with their work. Not only has it saved me money, but the workers were thorough, clean, friendly, and professional. First of all, everyone should get an energy audit done; not just to save money in energy costs, but also because the State currently subsidizes it. (Thank you, Taxpayers!) Kalex performed this audit for me, and then recommended changes and upgrades. As a person very knowledgeable about home improvement, I knew that Kalex made only the most cost efficient recommendations. They did not try to sell me on unnecesary upgrades with little-to-no short-term cost benefit. So, I could tell from the start that this company was more honest than most. This is probably the biggest job I've ever hired out, and therefore I was initially shocked at the proposed price. However, the low-interest, 15-year financing in relation to the proposed savings in annual energy costs made it a no-brainer to sign on the dotted line. Specifically, I am scheduled to save twice as much in annual energy costs as I have to pay each year on my financing plan through NYSERDA . In other words, their work immediately saved me money, as opposed to paying now, in the hopes of saving in the future. I'm saving significant amounts of money each month (on average), even after paying my monthly financing bill! So, it didn't cost me money...it only saved me money. Hence, a "no brainer." Jumping ahead to the work completion, I am currently running my air-conditioner only about 1/4 of the time I ran it last summer. I often can't believe how cool my upstairs remains, without air conditioning, with the midday summer sun beaming down on the roof just above it. (In a Cape Cod, I have no attic to absorb that heat.) I can easily see this winter being cheaper with less heat loss, and by switching from high cost heating oil to cheaper natural gas. Basically, Kalex's work is living up to its promises. As for the quality of the work and the workers...FANTASTIC. Let me explain: 1) My wife is a stay-at-home-mom, and is always very nervous about having men work in the house while I'm at work. As is typical, I had to take a day off from work, and my mother-in-law had to come down a couple of times, too. However, after my wife finally met and spoke to each worker (there were 7-8 of them), she no longer felt the need for us to be around. The men were professional, and true gentlemen. This put all of us at ease, most notably the wife (which is no small achievement, I assure you). 2) The workers were very neat. Our home is also my wife's workplace. When it gets in disarray by others, this adds work and stress for her (and we ALL suffer!). Kalex workers covered floors, contained dust/debris, and removed their shoes when crossing through the house. They left no sign or trace of their work at the end of each day. I loved coming home to see only progress, and not headaches. 3) A lot of this work is outside the view of the typical homeowner. Knowing this, and being a hands-on guy, I checked all of their work, even in the tightest and hardest-to-reach areas. To my surprise, these guys NEVER took a short-cut. Most notably, the job on my house took about three days longer than they expected (for a total of 8 days), so the company was quickly losing money on this unexpected labor. This is usually when crews take shortcuts, in an effort to save money. Not Kalex. Not only did they continue to cover every spot, but they went above and beyond (like repair-patching a few small tears on my old porch roof, which was no fault of theirs. These guys worked like bulls, often working in the most miserable conditions! While I couldn't be happier, I just hope Kalex-corporate pays their workers handsomely, BECAUSE THEY DESERVE IT! Well, that's all. We couldn't be happier. If you've read this far, and this seems too-good-to-be-true....it should! My wife and I are so pleased, that we told Kalex we were going to write the best review ever. They really deserve all of the praise. As final proof of our satisfaction, my wife and I actually started buying the guys lunch every day, out of our own pockets! We were so happy, we were willing to spend MORE on these guys, to show our appreciation. Well done, Kalex. And THANK YOU!!
