    Magnolia Home Remodeling Group
    The kitchen was a really good experience which is why we used Magnolia again when we needed to redo our bathroom.

    Major Homes Corp
    Budd and the teams he had working on our house project were very professional and genuinely nice people. Because of Budds project management skills, the house project was completed in 3 months when other contractors told us it would take 6- 8 months! Budd was very responsive and quickly addressed issues and any problems that arose. We spent a little more than we wanted as there were extras that ended up costing us more but we would hire this company back in a heart beat!

    Acorn Home Improvements Inc
    Acorn offered a professional and friendly survey, answering all of my questions and giving me their clear strategy to solve my problem. They came and left in one day, as planned. My AC turns off more often now, rather than having to stay on all day. I suspect this is due to my attic now being better insulated.

    Affordable Home Services
    In December of 2019 we had just finished up the architectural plans for a new addition on our home. In the plans, there were several major updates: a 2-story addition with a family room on the first floor (including a wood-burning fireplace), massive his and hers walk-in closets on the second floor (connected to the master bedroom), a completely renovated and reimagined master bathroom, a two-level deck with the upper level being covered and the roof line of the new addition flowing into the roof over the deck, and a built-in gasline grill. It was a beautiful set of plans, but not without its challenges, especially around orchestrating the various heights for the two-level deck and family room (as it has French doors that exit out onto the deck). Our architect gave us recommendations for a couple of general contractors including Jim Federle of Affordable Home Services (AHS). Upon speaking with Jim, I was immediately impressed with his prompt response and how quickly he was able to come out and walk through our plans. Although it was during the holidays, he promised a quick turnaround on an estimate and had it to us within a few days, clearly taking time over a weekend to put the numbers together. He proved to have a very thorough understanding of the work we needed to do and was already giving recommendations and opinions on various options. I will admit that the estimate was a bit higher than we were initially expecting. But Jim worked with us to bring it down with a combination of simplifying our chimney/fireplace plans as well as giving a little on the price. With that said, once he came back with the slightly modified price, he stuck with it, which I greatly respect, because it proves that he and his son, John, had given it a lot of thought and were confident in their understanding of the work. One of the key differentiators that led us to ultimately select Jim and AHS was that as we went through the contract negotiations, everything we asked about was included in that price. As Jim explained: it would be "turnkey". Whereas the other organization we were considering had exceptions and exclusions, including some big pieces that would definitely have made it more costly than Jim's quote by the time everything was said and done. Another related differentiator was Jim's total confidence in the work, what it entailed, how long it would take (12 weeks), and his group's ability to do it. Although the first iteration of the contract may not have had as many line items around scope, the reason wasn't because they didn't think of it, but because everything truly was included. No matter what I asked, the answer was: "of course". And then to allay any concerns, AHS was more than happy to add all of those details into the contract. The third differentiator was that it seemed AHS was ready to roll with the project as soon as we were ready to make a decision. That combined with how responsive they were already within the estimate/contract process is super important, because it was a clear indicator of how the project would likely go during the actual work. This fast response time was the case throughout our project. The final differentiator, and probably the most important, is my husband and I really liked Jim. He struck us as genuine, personable, friendly, confident, and super knowledgeable/experienced. We wanted to work with him. When we spoke with one of his references who said her project was finished exactly on time and budget, and had glowing remarks about AHS, that sealed the deal for us. True to their word, the moment the contract was signed in mid January, they got to work, starting with our town's building department. Things got a bit hung up there for a few weeks (to no fault of Jim's, that's just how small town government goes, in fact, his dogged attention likely got things going faster than they ordinarily would have). On Feb 24th, our permits came through and literally the next day the crew was here breaking ground (an unseasonably warm winter has its benefits). This project ran like a well-oiled machine. All of the moving parts were perfectly orchestrated and that is a feat in and of itself as there were so many different specialists that had to be involved. Jose and the foundation crew moved fast, and Vargas and the framing crew moved even faster. The roofing/siding team was in and out so quickly that if you blinked you would have missed them. Pedro and the indoor/finishing team are versatile artists: from the drywall, to the painting, to the trim, to the hardwood, to the tile work, to placing the beautiful stone veneer on our fireplace and grill. John, Jim's son, built out the custom closets to match my grand vision exactly (without having to buy an expensive closet system!). Andy the electrician and Richie and George the plumbers rounded out the cast and were super efficient in their work. These different groups moved in and out seamlessly with rarely a day when work wasn't being executed. The commitment to excellence was clear and Jim exemplified that himself, showing up himself almost every morning to check in. He made recommendations that likely cost him more (like herringbone designs for our Trex decking and angled wood floors), because he knew it would look awesome. He noticed when something perhaps wasn't exactly right (things I didn't even notice) and made sure his team tweaked them. He never said no to any of our selections and the options we felt strongly about, even though some of those again were probably more costly than initially estimated, from the premium Trex decking, to the granite on the grill top and bathroom counter, to the exquisite authentic restored barnwood fireplace mantel. On top of that, he went clearly above and beyond when he brought the excavator back just to move a boulder in our yard further from the deck so it would look better, and agreed to have his team paint our hallway and stairwell (which was not at all part of the initial plans). They also brought in a truckload of top soil and seed for the yard around the deck, which wasn't something I had thought to ask about including. All proving a true commitment to making our home perfect. In return, I tried to be as easy as possible and not picky with everything else and trusting him on tile, cabinets, fixtures, etc, hopefully allowing him to balance out costs. The work officially finished on May 18, 2020 which was exactly 12 weeks and it was 100% turnkey, just as Jim promised, without costing a dime extra. No job is without its challenges, and this one had a whopper thrown in, when the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic erupted right smack in the middle of this project. We were about 4 weeks in, with gaping holes in our bedroom, bathroom and kitchen, when the world essentially shut down. By sheer willpower, Jim and AHS did not skip a beat. There were some dicey weeks when we weren't sure if work might be forced to stop and obviously we all (workers, Jim, my husband and I and our 4 year old daughter), and our families, were nervous, worried about health and what would happen. When the town building inspectors stopped being able to come into homes, Jim had already built up enough good will with them and convinced them to approve work via video and pictures! We hadn't intended to live through the construction in our home, but going to live with family was no longer an option. It was difficult for us to be learning/working from home in the renovation chaos, and rarely being able to leave the house (with nowhere to go!). But we sort of all got through it together, and figured out how to socially distance while keeping the project going. Jim basically became our closest friend during that time, as he and the crews were the only people we saw in-person for weeks. I'd hear him roll up some days on his motorcycle and knew that I could look forward to a good conversation. Ironically, my parents had been doing their own renovation in March (just a bathroom) with a different contractor. Their bathroom work stopped and is still yet to be completed. The fact that Jim and AHS were able to finish this work on time and budget during a worldwide crisis speaks volumes. Needless to say, I highly recommend Jim and Affordable Home Services! We are thrilled with the outcome of our project, and it was worth every penny. We will definitely be using them again and look forward to having Jim and his family over for a BBQ once we are all allowed to congregate again.

    atticrawl
    They were prompt. Quiet and professional. Covered all of my flooring with drop cloths & plastic. Covered my furniture in plastic. Job was completed in less than 5 hours with three men. Initially the wrong insulation was brought to the job at no ones fault. The updated contract was not forwarded to the Crew Leader Julian. After I pointed out that it was the wrong insulation (R30) immediately drove to Woodbridge to obtain the correct insulation. They cleaned up beautifully! After they were gone, I feared that some mold may have been missed. When I called Mark Goldberg he made an appointment to come himself the very next day. Personally he wiped down all of the attic walls again with the bleach germicidal. Thank you Mark and Crew! Definitely recommend this company.

    atticrawl
    Discovered that my 680 sq ft attic had a nasty bat/mice infestation. After rodent removal/entry sealing was completed by my pest control company, I contracted Atticrawl (utilizing coupon offer discount) to remove the feces-contaminated (blown) insulation, seal up air gap holes with expanding foam, install eave baffles, spray disinfectant on the cleared surface, and install R30 faced batts insulation. Ryan was very thorough in his estimate analysis, not hesitating to navigate my floorless attic and identifying two additional potential entry points/weaknesses requiring sealing with galvanized mesh (attic fan opening and vent windows). Marlon and his crew were very punctual, friendly, and got right down to business, encouraging me to take a look at their progress at each step of the way. Covered all access paths/areas with plastic and left my house spotless. What a difference peace of mind can make. Happy to recommend!

    Basic Basement Co
    We have just completed our basement finishing project and from the first phone-call I have been delighted with Basic Basements. The short review is , just hire them right now - best contractors I have ever worked with for professionalism, and quality: They recognize that time is valuable, so when they said the time they would arrive, they kept to it at the first meeting, and for every single stage of the project. They were very clear on what the job would entail, and a transparent quote that was provided the same day as a consultant visited. So already they are streets ahead of almost any other contractors (I had a couple just not turn up, and others turn up and then spend 2 weeks or more to provide a quote for the work). Upon giving a deposit, I was assigned a project manager, and a scheduler, and the company filled out all of the necessary permit paperwork to make that stage easy with my local town. Once the permits were approved, a date was set, and again, the full timeline, and stages were gone through. They even managed to start the job 2 days earlier than planned (unheard of) and in a single day had the entire basement framed, and insulated. They have their own professionals on staff, so are not reliant on sub-contractors, meaning that what they said would happen happened, on time, to budget. They also were extremely friendly, and observed all possible safety precautions whilst being in my home. Our town inspections (which they scheduled) were over in minutes with the town's inspector saying "these guys always do great work" meaning again that the job sailed along. So, a month after the job began, In the middle of a global pandemic, I have a fully finished basement, meaning virtual schooling is 100% easier, home working 100% easier, and the best part is, they stuck exactly to the agreed budget which, unlike other quotes was not padded because of my zipcode. I would (and have already) recommended them in a heartbeat - they made a major project easy, and seamless, as it should be.

    Very professional. The consultation was knowledgeable with good options. They took every precaution for themselves and me related to Covid. Worked with me on pricing. Scheduled almost immediately and were in and out with practically no disruption to our home. It was amazing. They are not a rinky d*** operation. These guys are pros!

    Excellent job in all aspects. Estimate was timely with great communication and easy to work with. All work was scheduled and completed in a timely manner with great quality. Gail did a great job setting everything up and working with us, which was a big help with us being a working family. Project manager Kevin was very helpful thru the entire project. Highly recommended
