    Rueter Foundation Repair
    From the moment I called Rueters, Bob was tremendous! We were in the process of putting our home up for sale so were in a bit of a hurry. Bob estimated the job and completed the work quickly. It was very affordable and best of all, the work is 100% guaranteed! I highly recommend Rueters!

    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.

    He explained what he was doing, showed us clearly when it was finished, and refrained from pointing out all the other structural work that we know needs to be done. We are pleased with the work of Fred and his crew. He is obviously capable of doing much more complicated jobs and we would not hesitate to hire him again. His prices are not the lowest, but he will do the job right.

    Jewett Builders Inc
    The floors were slanted in a house I purchased.  The inspector thought the foundation was stable.  A contractor thought that a lot of work was needed.  I called Jewett to look over the foundation and tell me what he thought was needed.  Curt came and inspected all the foundations and underpinnings.  He could have recommended work.  Instead he thought the foundation and underpinnings were fine.  He recommended a few small support additions and insulation upgrades that I can perform.  I am impressed!  This guy knows foundations!

    Concrete Prescriptions
    I called Concrete Prescriptions after seeing their reviews on Angie's List.  David Dalessandri returned my call, and was able to stop by to provide an estimate on the same day.  He provided an estimate on the spot, and I scheduled the work for the following week. The crew from Concrete Prescriptions arrived on time and went right to work.  They had to cut out a small portion of the garage floor, put down a new base, and pour cement.  The original plan was to also reconstruct the front lip of the garage floor, but once they got to work, the crew determined that that step was not necessary.  I discussed this change with Mr. Dalessandri, and he agreed to reduce the price, since his crew was not doing as much work as originally planned. After the cement finished setting, Mr.  Dalessandri came by and smoothed out the surface. Overall, I was very happy with the process and the results.

    Concrete Prescriptions
    I had scheduled to meet David at our house to look at the repairs for an estimate. I was held up at work and called to leave a message I couldn't make it. My wife got home 45 minutes after our appointment and David had waited, very nice, it saved me having to reschedule. The estimate was more than we thought, but we wanted the work done so we went ahead. The work was completed as described, very professional.  We would recommend his services to anyone.

    I was very happy with Metro Masonry. They were professional and came for the estimate in a timely manner. The proposal was clear and the price they quoted me was very good. Metro Masonry suggested that in order to do a good job all the mortar above ground should be ground out and repointed. He explained what kind of mortar he would use and that he would match any replaced bricks with others from the same time period. Other companies wanted to repoint only parts of the foundation and their estimates were quite a bit higher. After signing the proposal they were able to schedule the job quite quickly. It took only two days to cut and repoint all of the bricks. They cleaned up the area after it was done. I was very pleased with their work and would hire them again.
