    Upright Building Services
    A year ago, my wife and I relocated from Chicagoland to the Midcoast of Maine where we purchased a lovely garrison colonial home on 2 acres of land on the top of granite and pine covered hill top.
    As we moved into our first winter we discovered 2 shortcomings to our house.  The first was that the building did not have rain gutters and rainwater and snow melt shed all along the foundation.  As a result the floor of our cellar would occasionally get wet enough to require the use of a shop vac.  Second, the house is oriented on the property so that the back of the house where our deck was located faced north and the roof line ran from east to west such that the sun did not shine directly through any window on either the north or south side of the house.  This resulted in the interior being very dark in the autumn and winter months and not coincidentally difficult and expensive to heat.  We determined that a room addition added to the living room on the north side of the house had the possibility of providing sunlight to enter on 3 sides of the room and with ample windows and screening could provide a light, airy room in the warm months and a snug, bright room in the cold months.  Further we decided to add a Vermont Castings wood burning stove in the center of the north wall. 
    We had some rudimentary ideas about how this addition properly designed could remedy the 2 issues listed above.  At this point we realized we needed to acquire some real talent for consultation and execution. 
    We knew no one in the area so we referred to Angie?s List where we had found success in the past.  And through it we identified Fred Hilchey the owner of Upright Building Services.  The interview process was critical for 2 reasons.  First we needed to discover a great deal about the character of Fred Hilchey, i.e., integrity, work ethic, creativity and problem solving. 
    And second we knew we needed a builder with a very broad and complete skill set.  We were fortunate since Fred
    and his small crew met all of our needs. 
    His consultation and advice at the beginning of the project turned out to be spot on.  He recommended a metal shed roof that attached to the existing roof of the house and continued the same pitch 15? further into the back yard.  Powerful rain storms during the latter part of summer and early fall have shown that he was right and the water is sluiced far enough into the back yard so as to drain down the granite hillside and not into the cellar which has remained bone dry.  We expect the same result as snow slides off the metal roof this winter.   
     The second issue regarding heat was that the interior of the addition has a cathedral ceiling that slopes up and attaches above a window to a den.  Fred advised that when the stove was heating the addition it would not only provide heat to that room but with the aid of a ceiling fan heat would vector up the ceiling and through the sliding window he installed and provide some heat to the upstairs rooms.  As it turns out he was once again quite correct as that little wood burning stove now supplements the heat for the 4 upstairs rooms and bath and we can nicely regulate the degree of heat by opening and closing the sliding window and the doors to the various rooms.  Thus 2 mechanical issues regarding the house with Fred?s experience were ameliorated in a very satisfactory way.  Additionally as can be seen from the list above Fred?s aesthetic and architectural sense have made this addition both functional and beautiful.  The exterior is consonant with the overall design of the house and the 5? casement windows and functional transom windows and the sliders at the east and west ends of the addition allow us to capture a breeze no matter the direction of the wind.  The interior is also beautiful due to the size of the windows and the proximity to the pines and wild life.  But also the finish work and detail once again exceeded our expectation.  The ceiling is
    tongue and groove pine which will color and develop a fine patina with time.  The window sills are all over sized to accommodate tea or coffee cups and small plants. 
    The project as Fred warned was not without its difficulties.  Immediately in trenching out the foundation Fred ran into ledge which required pinning the foundation and where the addition attached to the house was also where the attached garage
    joined the building.  This made for a very difficult roof transition.  At each step as problems were encountered Fred and his team analyzed and solved them elegantly.  There were no surprises.  Fred consulted with us each time the unexpected occurred or he had an idea to enhance the finished project.  No corners were cut.  The work was meticulous inside and out.  The result is beautiful and exceeded our expectations.  Would we hire Fred Hilchey again?  You bet.  We have already scheduled him for our kitchen remodel right after the Thanksgiving holiday.  As a side note Fred?s team reflects what Upright Builders stands for notably his right hand man, Jason, has the same dedication and work ethic that Fred Hilchey personifies.

    I got a basic household garage door opener, and I believe installation was free (this was written 4+ months after the fact). The installer showed up right on time, went right to work, and was pleasant to boot. Good experience from beginning to end.

    When we first called Keith, we didn't really know the extent of our problems, but he tackled them with a gusto, clearing out vast quantites of wild roses, honeysuckle vines and the like to reveal attractive plantings underneath, which he then pruned, thinned out and transplanted. Now that we are nearly done, he is undertaking to maintain the property and plow while we are away. Keith is a hard worker, very dependable,  and a pleasure to work with. We enjoy having him around and especially enjoy the wonderful gardens he has recreated.

    They are a punctual, professional company, great project manager and fantastic crew. They worked on some pretty hot summer days, and didn't let it slow them down. There were no surprised or letdowns... Our lawn is coming in nicely, they came back after three weeks with some heavy rain and re-seeded a few areas. They also did an amazing job of cleaning up and even removed pallets for us when our pavers came in. Can't recommend them highly enough.

    They did a wonderful job. They were on time, courteous, they did exactly what they said they were going to do and they did it well. I would use them again if I had to do it, if I had any other concrete work and I would recommend them to other people.

    Ron is a very nice man, great to work with and the price was great. He showed up on time to do the estimate and the garage door was installed on the day and time as promised. I was pleased to see that they do replacement windows. I think that I will have them replace the windows in my house.

    I first received an estimate, and I was impressed by the detail of information given to me as to what would need to be done. I called to order the door a couple days later, and he was able to install that week. When he arrived he let me know that one of the panels he was given was the wrong style, but that he would install with it, and return the next week and replace that panel. After installation was complete, he gave thorough instructions on door operation, including door operation without power. When he returned to replace the non-matched panel, I told him I had changed my mind about having decorative hinges and would like them if he had them with him. I fully expected to pay the extra fee for the hinges, but he told me he was not going to charge for them because I had to waited for replacement panel. He did a great job and I was very happy to be able to support a local independent business.

    Harry did a beautiful job installing it and it now works great. Even without the remote, you can literally open the door with your pinkie finger. It's as light as a feather and it was explained to us that it should be so if the door is installed correctly. We will definitely call Harry again if we ever have any future garage door questions or problems.

    On Thursday, May 14, 2009 we discovered that one of our two garage doors would not operate due to some broken equipment that required repair or replacement. We telephoned Harry at Garage Door Co. in the morning; within an hour he called back and we set up at time the following morning to review the situation. Harry arrived on-time and was very professional in laying out our options for either repair or replacement of the door. We opted for replacement because of the very reasonable cost and because of the bad condition of the other door, we asked if that could be replaced as well. Harry obtained the doors that morning and returned to install both of them that day. The doors were of excellent quality as was his skill in replacing them. They function perfectly and we are very pleased with the outcome.
