    Cutting-edge Tile Installations, LLC
    This last year, several big holes were made in my 110 year old home���s stone foundation by rodents displaced by the Cornell Maplewood. I spent months trying to find a stone mason to fix it with a success until finally in December I found Cutting Edge Tile. They do Stone and concrete work in addition to brick and tile and their work is excellent and professional work from first contact to billing. It was a pleasure to deal with everyone who worked for the company, including Bill, the contractor, Angela in the office and Jake, the stone mason. Jake listen to all my concerns and a very skilled job in place with difficult access. He also cleaned up All the broken stone and concrete that the rodents had broken up. I couldn���t have asked for the job to be done better. I wholeheartedly recommend them to everyone.

    DP Roofing & Construction
    DP Roofing is outstanding. Dustin and his team are knowledgeable, competent and reliable. They show up on time and do excellent work. They communicate costs and estimates clearly and in plain language, and they quickly communicate any changes in estimates as soon as they happen. With DP, my projects have stayed on budget, on time and the results speak for themselves. I have relied on DP for projects large and small--from painting and odd job carpentry work, to major structural work on the exterior of my house to roof repairs--and I've been extremely satisfied with everything they have done. These guys are truly professional. I can't recommend them enough!

    Halco
    In the summer of 2016, I bought a home (100+ yrs old) with gaping holes in the stone foundation, barn heaters on 2nd floor & mudroom and a furnace sitting in dirt that I was sure didn���t really work. Halco assessed the condition of my house, made recommendations and provided an estimate (including rebates). The cost was a real eye-opener, but everything was guaranteed. I was confident that they knew what they were doing, so I immediately went ahead with the entire proposal. Today, I can say I made the right decision. I now have a home that is energy (and financially) efficient, comfortable year-round and safe. All the proper permits were issued. Many thanks again to all the staff at Halco!

    Midstate Basement Authorities, Inc
    Eric and crew were great to work with on a big job they just finished for us replacing the entire foundation of an old house in Ithaca. The original foundation was in danger of collapse. Working with Taitem Engineering the crew at Midstate assessed the scope of the job and designed a fixed bid job to shore up the house, replace several joists and remove the old foundation walls. Along the way the entire HVAC system had to be removed and put back and plumbing and electrical had to be changed across the basement. The house looked like it was being raised up mid job with the old foundation removed and the house safely shored up. After removing part of the old foundation walls the crew found further structural issues with the house framing. They consulted with the engineer and came up with a plan to fix the problem. It was a change in scope and design, but Eric didn't change the price of the job. They changed the footer and wall design and worked with me to get the approval to change the job. The additional shoring that was needed on the job because of the change didn't cost us anything extra and now the house is level, secure and stronger than it was before by a longshot. Plumbing, HVAC and electrical are all back in place and passed inspection. Erik even personally made sure the hot water was on and working throughout the house. The crew worked **** ** the job on time and professionally each step of the way. Eric also managed multiple subcontractors on the job and dealt with the permitting process and the City of Ithaca directly. Last day on the job they were cleaning up small specks of material that I would have missed or not really cared about. They also communicated well with the church next door to use their parking lot for access. After the job they returned the church parking lot to better than it was before by grading out some gravel others had snowplowed into a corner before Midstate's job even started. I've already recommended Midstate to friends and wouldn't hesitate to work with them again.

    Halco
    These guys were wonderful. They were extremely professional, and responsive. They were a pleasure to work with. I was especially impressed when a QC guy came out to inspect the work done about 3 weeks after they finished. Halco is a total pleasure to work with.

    Midstate Basement Authorities, Inc
    I can't say enough about how prompt, efficient and professional Eric, Adam and all of the team from Midstate Basement Authorities have been. When our basement flooded, I called Midstate and Eric and Adam were here the next day. I had a proposal in 2 days and they were here to do the work within a week of my signing the proposal. Following the installation of the basement system and sump, I discovered that the drainage line I had them hook the sump,outflow to was not adequate and called Eric. He was there the next day and worked out a solution that also solved my long standing problem with the water flow from our gutter downspouts. Other contractors have attempted to resolve the gutter downspout problem without success. Eric quickly designed a drainage system that will finally solve all of the drainage problems on our property.

    The workers from Midstate were courteous and respectful while working in our house. They kept us informed of their progress and took care to make sure that their work caused as little disruption As possible. The quality of the work that they performed is excellent. We would not hesitate at all to use them again and recommend them highly. They are not only very professional, they also provide exceptional customer service.

    Greenscene Lawn & Garden
    While the landing was fine, the work crew did the minimum amount of work on the landscaping portion. We had more weeds come up than grass and they skipped areas. We had to call them back several times and each time they did not fully correct the problems. We finally complained to the owner, Rick Bayo, and his response was to blame us for not watering our lawn, not taking the most expensive options, and to threaten my wife. We have never met him and he has never been to the house to view the job. His level of unprofessionalism and ignorance of the issues was astonishing. I'm not sure if his problem is with being criticized for his company doing a poor job or because a woman complained. We properly cared for the newly seeded areas and plantings, I even went out and bought straw to cover up the areas and made sure everything was watered. We have paid for a job that is inadequate and will have to hire someone else to do a proper job on the lawn. I deeply regret ever hiring GreenScene and I most definitely will not hire them again nor recommend them.
    Here is the email we received from the owner of GreenScene regarding our complaints:
     "I am sorry that you have chosen to proceed with your angry attitude. I will inform you that the only reason grass seed does not establish is lack of water. you obviously were not doing your due diligence. We have upheld everything we said we would do and have received final approval from your husband on our work when Lars returned and did the work himself (July 29th).  Lars is the best you will find in his field and has managed to keep hundreds of customers thrilled with their projects this year. I am familiar with your project in knowing that we gave you options that would be more effective in dealing with the invasive weeds (landscape fabric/cobblestone) you were battling, but you opted for a cheaper alternative. Until this time, we have responded to all of your requests and emails. You have now decided to proceed with another company and poor attitude. I wish you luck moving forward, but please do not contact me again with your anger driven emails. We have continued to follow up on your complaints and address the situation. I will recover the money that is owed however necessary. Your FURIOUS attitude will get nothing accomplished when working with an honorable, level headed company. "

    Midstate Basement Authorities did a great job on this project.
    1) All workers were very professional, and responsive to any questions or requests I had.
    2) The complexity of this job increased once we discovered that a significant amount of water was leaking from an underground pipe just outside our basement wall.
    3) They were able to simultaneously finish the drainage system and sump pump project as well as excavating outside to find and cap off the leaking pipe.

    I was very happy with the quality of their work.  Every interaction I had with Eric, Nicki, Cynthia, and the rest of the crew was positive and professional.  Any questions I had were answered in a timely manner.  After exploring several options I was confident in my decision to work with Midstate Basement Authorities, Inc.  I am pleased with the work they did.  I would recommend them without hesitation.

    We're renovating a 1910 house in downtown Ithaca and our structural engineer found some weak spots in the old stone foundation.  Also, the dirt crawlspace was horribly musty and mice-infested.  The whole house smelled like dirt.  Midstate was prompt to reply and come out to the property and then emailed a quote.  We got one other quote for the crawlspace encapsulation from the outfit most known for that service in Ithaca, but Midstate was quite a bit less.  Foundation repair estimate wasn't cheap, but the stone foundation was really bad and involved pouring concrete, etc, so the price seems fair.
    Got on the schedule very quickly and had new concrete footers poured in front and back of house, several rotted support posts were replaced with pressure-treated 6x6's, and crawlspace was completely encapsulated.  We're just waiting on our spray-foam contractor to seal around the edges of the crawlspace when he sprays the rest of the house in a couple weeks.
    CRAWLSPACE ENCAPSULATION note... this is the best money we will probably have spent on this entire renovation.  The entire house smelled like dust and dirt and dead mice.  Even sticking my head in the crawlspace made me cough.  Now, it's completely lined with a thick bright white sheet of plastic with not an inch of dirt in sight, and the support posts are all solid.  The air quality difference is already astounding.  The entire house used to smell like crawlspace but now the crawlspace itself doesn't even smell.  Very happy with this decision!
