  • It's unfortunate that I have to write this, especially since we started out so well with the first of a two phase project, but I have to write the good and the bad, which is why Angie's Lists exists. Jay Construction completed the second phase of a major project with some skepticism on my part about a top soil purchase they made on my landscapers behalf that ultimately ended with me purchasing a lot more top soil (almost $1K worth) so my landscapers could complete their portion of the project. I requested on numerous occasions for a copy of the receipt so I could see exactly how much soil they purchased and was delayed by excuse after excuse, which only made me wonder if they cheated me in some way. I mean, if you tell me you have nothing to hide, but yet it's been 3 weeks and I still have not received a copy of the receipt after multiple attempts what am I supposed to think. I can say that I think they are good at what they do and have a good work ethic, but after paying $50K to them on these two projects, money I didn't have readily available and had to pull from my 401(k) because of an emergency situation, I had hoped to be treated a lot better! I'm a single mom, I don't have extra money laying around...

  • Sione was great to work with.  He communicated with me everyday via telephone since this is my rental and I'm out of state.  He also sent me pictures of before and after.  His crew worked hard everyday for 4 days straight before taking a day off to resume for another day or so.  This was a great experience given the circumstances.

  • Pat and his crew showed up on time and ready to get down to business.  They were in and out in one day and cleaned up thoroughly after doing a good job.  Their work comes with a lifetime guarantee.  Looking forward to a dry basement.

  • I called Joe on Saturday and he showed up at the end of the day after his last job as promised.
    He provided me with a quote that I felt was reasonable and I was really relying on the recommendations that I saw on Angie's List. I was more concerned with the quality then with the price.
    I signed with him on the spot and he told me that it would take a week to ten days to get the permit.  
    He called me the same Monday to say he already got the permits and could start work the next day.
    He told me the job would take 3 days and he called me at the end of each day to update me on the progress.  I was not present for the installation.
    The job was finished on Thursday and the sidewalk looks great.  They left everything pretty clean and I just had to fix the grass area where a fallen tree had lifted up the sidewalk and pulled up the sprinklers.
    I am extremely satisfied with the professionalism and quality of the work done and would recommend them to others.
    I guess time will tell how the sidewalks hold up but I remain optimistic.

  • Overall B+, I would recommend JB and their crew. They mobilized and executed quickly with all of their own equipment (excavation, demo, containers, finishing tools) and the 7-8 man crew were well coordinated and experienced. Each guy knew exactly what they needed to do on the job and addressed our concerns and every item that was pointed out to them. They had a good foreman, 3 skilled guys to do the detailed work, and plenty of helpers who didn't require much direction. They arrived early before 8am and worked till 6pm. Pros: Reasonable rates; in line with other quotes, scheduled the job very quickly (only a couple of days after signing contract) & finished the job in 2 days, others estimated a weeks time. Since JB has the man power, equipment and hauling, they were very efficient. Cons: it took a couple of calls to get a quote, some back-forth coordinating follow up meeting & damage to the street from the container but Joe assured me that it would be remedied.

  • It has been almost two months that the work was done and so far I had not have a drop of water on the basement after all the

    snow and the rain that we have had.

    I am waiting that the weather gets warmer to call John to finish the work by doing the sidewalk in the  backyard by the basement

    because could not be done due to low temperature. He promised  that as soon as the weather allows it  and I call him to see when is convenient for me he will come .

  • I have been using the services of ICON Contracting since 2011.  Service is professional, reliable and very friendly.  I can count on Gerry at ICON to respond promptly and go out of his way to get me what I want.  Since 2011 he has redone everything to the outside of my 1940's house.  We collaborated on ideas about the garden, lawn, sidewalk and driveway.  I can say that Gerry has a good eye for design.  Everyone has complimented me on the front of my house. 

    Gerry also has a talent and education for building gardens.   In my backyard, he has built raised beds, rock paths and installed a fountain in my garden.  On an ongoing basis, he continues to help me with my native garden, going out of his way to find native plants which are hard to find.

    ICON also did indoor waterproofing in 2011 and everything has been dry in my basement since then.

     I highly recommend ICON Contracting.

  • Excellent work. Done in a timely fashon. A narrow trench was dug along the side of the house. Neatly done, did not disrupt my neighbors. Double waterproofed the outside foundation wall, also cleaned and coated the interior wall wit a type of material i can't recall right now.
          Basement wall would leak in light to moderate rain. Now, 3years later, through numerous thunderstorms and snow, not a drop.
    I couldnt be more pleased. My peace of mind when i see the weather report is priceless!

  • NEA Construction is the construction company you want to use if you are looking to do the job right. The owner of the company is an extremely talented architect and contractor, who brings the technical knowledge and expertise that other contractors lack. It has been a pleasure building our home with him and he has elevated the project to a level that was beyond our imagination. NEA Construction furnishes their client with an extremely detailed and comprehensive contract that goes above and beyond any other contractor making a bid. The contract that NEA Construction provides a detailed account of what is included so that the homeowner knows exactly what they are paying for. Their prices are Accurate. Because of his architectural background, Manny does an excellent job of streamlining designs, evaluating what will work and bringing the project up to another level. He does an excellent job of explaining the details of construction so that his clients have a good understanding of the task at hand and knows how to incorporate style with the functionality of the space. NEA Construction is well reputed for working within the confines of the proposed budget. One of NEA Contructions strengths in this arena is foresight. Manny not only addresses issues that arise behind the scenes so that the client has a completely stress free experience, he rises to the occasion if posed with a challenging task. Because of his ability to foresee problems , the need to problem solve is minimized. Manny is constantly updating his knowledge of new products & does an excellent job of familiarizing his clients with the products available to them and recommends options. We have been very impressed with the professionalism that Manny and the rest of his team at NEA Construction has displayed. Apart from having the highest standards himself, he has selected a team of employees that are well experienced and dedicated to their craft as well. It is worthwhile to comment that Manny has set the standard for having extremely developed communication skills. He is always just a phone call or email away and is always fully aware of what is happening on his job sites. He is not the type of contractor that you will have to hunt down or call again and again to get a simple answer - he always follows up . We spent over a year looking for the right contractor and met Manny through a friend who had just used him for their home. After a long and thorough search, we felt that we have finally found what we were looking for in NEA Construction. We did a very extensive reference check on him and all his former clients had nothing but excellent things to say about his workmanship. Manny and his team at NEA Contruction has made building our home an extremely pleasant experience. If you are looking for a contractor that offers one stop shopping, reliability and high standards, then NEA is most certainly the right contractor for you. We recommend him wholeheartedly and we fully intend to use him for all our future endeavors without any hesitation.

  • Carl Russo of Carl's General Contracting was absolutely excellent. I can't recommend him highly enough. He is a general contract in the Flushing area. He was great and his price was very, very good. Wonderful price. He was excellent. He was very trustworthy, I left him the key and let him into the house, because I needed to go back to work. He was here the first week and I had to go back to work the second week, so I just left him the key. He was very trustworthy. I would absolutely use him in the future.
