    DiPaolo & Sons
    We hired Dipaolo and Sons, Inc. and its owner, Frank Primerano, to build a 16��� X 12��� addition to our home in Williamsville, NY. Mr. Primerano walked off the job after receiving 90% payment on the contract. Still to be completed was removal of topsoil and construction debris in the back yard and a solution to the significant water pooling which was creating a 6��� deep by 8��� wide pool against the foundation. Mr. Primerano���s only answer to the water problem was to provide an eight-foot 2 X 10 plank over the water to the rear door, 2 feet above the water. It cost us twice what we withheld to repair his unfinished work. Additionally, upon inspection by the Town of Amherst building inspectors, several more problems were found due to Mr. Primerano���s unacceptable construction. Among their findings were: The necessity to provide stairs to the rear door, R-8 air supply ducts required were only R-6, there was no return air duct in the addition and a concrete PSI report on footers was never submitted. Most significantly, insulation in the crawl space floor of the addition was installed upside-down. This necessitated the removal and replacement of more than 200 sq. ft. of insulation. We incurred an additional 45% in costs to complete and/or correct his mistakes and get a Certificate of Occupancy. We are dissatisfied with the debris he left behind, backfill he left untouched, the lack of a proper drainage system, his apparent inability to render basic construction skills, his lack of communication with the Town of Amherst Building inspectors and his failure to comply with the Town of Amherst Building Code. We would never use Mr. Primerano or his company, Dipaolo & Sons again, nor would we recommend him to anyone.

    Do not use Fruehauf Associates if you want to get your project done. He doesn't get back to you and doesn't show up to do the job and his estimate was high. I contacted Scott about installing the door June 6, he said he was 6-8 weeks out and would put me on the schedule. July 2 he looked at the job, July 11 he sent an estimate, we approved the estimate and asked him to start the project. August 22, he said, "I'll be there mid next week." October 20, still haven't heard from him. Since then we have gotten other quotes for much less.

    Aslan Plumbing & Mechanical Services
    Greg and his team did good work from start to finish. They always showed up on time, which I always appreciate and rarely get with subcontractors. They were courteous and respectful. Greg���s office assistant was a joy to work with. Brian was fabulous when he worked on the bathroom! So would I hire Aslan Plumbing again? It���s hard to say. They did good work, the employees were wonderful, and Greg was honest. I trust Greg���s work. However, Greg is so busy that there were times that I had to call him repeatedly (from three to ten times) just to get him to take care of an issue. We particularly had a problem getting him to do one final test on the ductwork that was required for our final building inspection. If they could hire one or two more workers, then I would probably hire them again.

    John and his team took down a very old basketball hoop imbedded in the ground.
    They also removed a heating system that was imbedded in the side of our
    house. It looks like nothing was there because they did a great job matching the shingles on our house.
    He was professional and communicated everything in a timely fashion.
    We are hoping to use him to put in french doors between our living room and study.
    John is professional, friendly, and knowledgeable!

    The addition included a great room, new roof, bath and other things.  At only five years old the roof is leaking.  The contractor will not return my calls and I can't even get anyone on the phone.  The roof should be warrantied.  The bathtub in the new bathroom freezes (literally) in winter.  The tub ices over and then the water won't drain because the drain is frozen.  Also, there's inadequate insulation which caused massive ice dams resulting in water backing into the great room.

    The experience was great.  Everyone we worked with from the owner to the carpenters, plumbers, drywall, insulation, and painters were professional and timely.  I hope to be able to have Alliance do more work for me in the future.

    We rented out the duplex on Sheridan Drive from Patrick Homes.  First of all they don't tell you about the extra bills they charge you such as for the garage lights.  We even took out the light bulbs for a month and they charged us the same amount!  In addition, we moved out over a month ago and are still trying to get out rent deposit returned to us.  I stopped by the Patrick Homes office the other day and the receptionist said I am not the first one to have to continually request the money and I still haven't gotten it back yet.  This company is not professional and tries to get your money any way they can.  Stay away!
