Insulation reviews in Edgemoor

    PHILLIPS INSULATION
    The crew that came out was very professional and knew what they were doing. The job took two days to complete. They came on time each day and put drop cloths down. Each day they cleaned up and had me inspect the attic before they left.  I have an area in the attic that I wanted some flooring and they worked with me to put a different kind of insulation under the flooring. The only thing I was disappointed in was the Styrofoam box they gave me to cover the attic stairs.  I feel this has a very low R value, so I went out to Home Depot and bought a better one.  Overall I was happy with their work and I would recommend them to family and friends.

    John Elliott General Contractor
    1929 home's 2nd floor bathroom waste pipe developed a pin-hole leak. Pipe was 3" Copper waste line. When the attic was converted to living space, apparently, the contractor decided to cut INTO the house from the OUTSIDE to run the drain line. They had added pink fiberglass insulation around the pipe and then covered the pipe+insulation with aluminum siding. The pipe developed a leak and had probably been leaking the 13 years I've lived here, creating an awful moldy mess of the insulation, in the wall cavity, and down into the basement. Awesome.
    I had opened the wall to locate the cause of the leak (which, due to a continually leaky toilet, I finally noticed puddling water, otherwise, I'd have never known about the mold..just would have chalked it up to "that's how basement's smell"). I had removed the insulation and cleaned the mold.
    John's crew was great. 4 guys working on this over 3 days. Always punctual. Always professional. John was very open to my suggestions about how I wanted the exterior hole patched with rigid foam insulation (since XPS is mold/waterproof..and if water ever got behind the siding, I didn't want it getting back into the same pink fiberglass baffles I planned to put back up.
    They laid drop-cloths on the path through the house so as to protect the carpeting not only in the work area, but also on the path leading in/out of the house with the waste materials.
    Original job quote was for 1700, but once he opened the ceiling to connect the new PVC waste line to the upstairs toilet, we discovered that 2 of the floor joists (2x6's) had be notched and cut so badly by the former plumber/gc, that they had cracked completely through. Totally non-supportive anymore. John's son recommended I simply sister the joists and run the drain line below the joists, creating a soffit. I would have went with that approach, however the bedroom they were working in only has 8' ceilings and it's a 10x10 room. Losing any more headroom would make the room feel even more cramped/cave-like. John suggested running two new beams and jacking the sagging joists back up into their proper location and then bolting the broken joists to the new ones. I voted for this approach, even though he had to cut a 2" hole in the center of a 2x6 support beam.  Fingers crossed these two beams are strong enough. Since the bathroom is small upstairs and won't have tile, I'm hopeful that these will be sufficient to hold a 300 pound man in the bathroom (the current american male standard it seems).
    John did a great job soldering the new copper lines. He decided to use PEX tubing to connect the plumbing fixtures (some copper, some CPVC)  to the existing copper feed lines. He even went 1 size larger with the PEX since PEX tubing's connections are narrower than the 1/2" copper pipe. He did this so as to avoid low water flow in the shower/sink upstairs and make it easier for him to thread the connecting pipe through the new floor joist holes. Sadly, despite his best intentions, I do have lower shower head flow. And, I think he could have gotten a 1/2" copper pipe threaded through the holes he made in the joists (and thus, made them a little narrower too). I can't fault him for it, and I've debated calling him up and asking him to switch out the PEX for copper, but then he'd have to change out the 1/2" to 3/4" copper connector he put in specifically for the PEX. Is it really worth it? i dunno. The shower still works fine...but I know that the flow is lower than it was before. We have 1/2" copper throughout the house, so if I was really gung-ho, I'd change the 1/2" right from the source to 3/4" and only reduce it at the fixtures (as is supposed to happen in a modern home). Bah! Next home.
    John built us a frame so we can put drywall up, covering the pipe's new location which is now inside the house (as required by code). I could have had John do the drywall, but this was the first job I've worked with him on and wasn't sure how his drywall skills were. Besides, it would have cost me an extra $800 for that, and I had already paid an extra $800 for the unforseen replacement of 2 floor joists. he did the right thing there too.. Most contractors would have tacked up a new joist and called it day and never bothered to jack up the sagging floor to it's proper location first. He got the temp lolly column and had a h*** of a time boosting the floor to its proper location. He asked before doing this what the floor material was (so he is also aware of what happens when you jack up a floor...rigid stuff, like tile breaks. Luckily for us, we have linoleum up there.
    The toilet hole was also cut so that the toilet flange wasn't even resting on the plywood up there. He attached 2 2x2s to the sides of the hole so that the flange could rest on something and then re-sat the toilet upstairs, complete with a new wax ring, etc.
    NO LEAKS. No leaks in the feed lines to the sink, toilet, tub. And no leaks on the PVC drains from all those fixtures.
    Forgot to mention, when he moved the pipe inside the room, the baseboard radiator had to be cut back. That meant draining the lines and then refilling them.
    It's summer time, so I haven't tested that he properly bled the air from the radiator lines. I've had a plumbing service do this on two separate occasions. Once, they properly bled the air out. The second time, they did not. I'll test when some cool night temperatures come along whether the lines are bled, and if not, John will get a call.
    Overall. I really liked working with John. When the joists needed replacement, I had hoped to use engineered wood i-beams as the holes he had to make could be very large. However, they don't make i-beams in 2x6. Only 2x9 and above sizes. John entertained my request and looked around for 2x6 i-beams. As did I. Most contractors would have told me to p*** off and they know what they are doing, and I'm just a dumb homeowner, etc. I didn't get any blow-back from John at all, even if he thought the request was strange or silly.
    He is trustworthy, honest, fair priced, knowledgeable, thorough, and does the job right the first time because he knows what he's doing. I would use his services again in a heartbeat as he is easy to get along with, great personality, and attentive to details.

    Work was done on time and in an efficient manner. Workers were very professional and conscientious. You have to negotiate h****** pricing because the company appears to be one of the higher priced contractors in the area.

    The job was estimated to take 2 to 3 days but was done in 2 days. The crew arrived promptly and immediately set to work. They laid dropped cloths to protect the floors and hauled away all construction waste. On the second day, the crew stayed late (about an hour)to complete the work. Once finished, the area was cleaned and again all waste hauled away. We had one concern the following day that we contacted Christopher about. He responded immediately and was able to come that day to address the issue. Everything now is working as expected.

    The job went very well. The company responded to my request for a quote rapidly (within 24 hours of the request). The salesman was professional and laid out our choices of insulation, without a lot of pressure. Obviously they wanted to sell the highest margin product and service, but when I said I wanted just basic insulation they accepted my request without argument. The crew that performed the service were also very professional. They showed up when they said they would, they made sure that they were wearing shoes covers so as not to drag dirt into the house. They completed the job in the time frame estimated and left everything clean and back in place. The one thing I would suggest is that you negotiate the pricing of any work quoted. The company does seem to come in high on their initial quote (we experienced this on another job the company did for us).

    ONeill Electric
    Steve (Max) O'Neill and his team sat down with us to plan every detail of the project , all the while respecting our limited budget.
    They worked with us on every aspect and continued to check with us before, during, and after the work to make sure we were getting what we wanted.  The electrical and lighting work in particular was extensive and complicated, but as a Master Electrician he was able to explain, plan, and perform the work flawlessly. 
    He and his team are old school, take pride in their work, and doing it right.   The entire project was planned thoroughly and executed quickly and professionally, including all necessary permits and paperwork. They respected our home and kept a neat and clean work site. The price, quality, professionalism and responsiveness are top-notch.
    I've used O'Neill Electric for jobs as small as adding an GFCI outlet.  He treats the small and big jobs with the same level of professionalism and courtesy.

    Apsley Builders Inc
    During Hurricane irene a large tree uprooted and fell directly on our home making it uninhabitable.  Though we were extremely stressed and motivated to rebuild quickly we took the time to bid out the project to "several" contractors to ensure our home was properly rebuilt for the right price.  It was clear to us early in the bid process Apsley showed the most responsiveness and capability compared to their competition.  After months of rebuilding we are back in our home and couldn't be happier.  There were a few minor details that needed to be touched up but when our expectations were clearly explained to the staff they made things right without any issue.  Thank you Apsley team!

    Quality Home Insulators
    I was very pleased with this contractor. His work is excellent. I needed attic insulation and other insulation remedies for a first floor bedroom and a whole house fan. He very clearly explained what he could do for me and had good ideas for my particular insulation needs. He works fast and was so neat that you would not even know he was there. The price was very fair and I am very pleased with the work that was performed
