    Halco
    All projects were completed in a timely fashion with great skill. I have found the sales staff to be very helpful in coordinating projects. Weaving solar production into emergency power generation and successfully connecting all to the grid so that everything worked well was a particular demonstration of HALCO employee expertise. The results of plumbing and associated handyman projects exceeded my expectations.

    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!

    Zappala Electric
    Mr. Zappala arrived on time, every time, both for the quotes and the work. He was professional and thorough, even when dealing with the electric company and getting a bit of a run around from them. We wanted our system upgraded to 200 amps prior to having solar panels installed and Mr Zappala accommodated our time requirements and dealt with the electric company's inspectors. He never left a mess, and always let me know what work he had planned for that day (installation was a couple days and dealing with the inspectors took a couple more visits). All went well and the work is completely satisfactory. (The "cost of service" in listing is for this job.) The second job was installing 2 receptacles in the garage for new door openers we were having installed and another receptacle in the basement. Half our basement is only a creepy crawlspace but he dove in and had everything installed as required. Again all work is satisfactory. Additional Info: June 2017, just short of a year of installing the receptacles, I had problems with the garage doors (see Genson Overhead Doors, Inc. review) and one of the causes was thought to be the socket. Mr Zappala came out right away and looked everything over but could not find anything wrong. He called back the next day and stopped by (fortunately at the same time the garage door guys were here) and together they were able to resolve the issue to everyone's satisfaction. Mr Zappala is conscientious about his work, and stands behind everything he installs. We'd definitely hire him again for our electrical needs.

    Colgan Construction
    We agreed to a time and materials contract with Colgan Construction which was our first mistake. Brien's original estimate of the work was almost $75,000 which we wanted to work to reduce. He assured us that this was possible and we worked to remove some of the original scope to keep costs lower. However, the work dragged on with no end in sight and with us footing the bill. Whenever we asked Brien for an update on costs and an estimate of when it would be complete, he first promised a completion date Thanksgiving, which slipped to Christmas, then to the end of January and into February. At that time we finally had to fire him as we were out of money. There was scope creep on the job and when we asked him for estimates he consistently underpriced it, assuring us that he was familiar with old houses such as ours. Only after we were well into each change did we find out the true cost. Brien would get frustrated when we'd ask him for updated costs, which he heavily relied on his accounting software to provide. He didn't have an office manager to handle the paperwork so he was acting as general contractor, laborer, accountant and office manager. Further issues arose when we would receive Invoice summaries that included invoices which we never received. This only exacerbated the issue of us not ever understanding what the true costs of the renovations were to that point. Brien also took vacations/side jobs during the work on our house, which we were understanding of to a point. Vacation is understandable but it was sometimes weeks where we hadn't seen them working on our project numerous times. After months of the costs escalating we tried to renegotiate a flat fee for the remainder of the work which he refused saying that, given all the surprises the house raised, he didn't have the confidence to quote a flat fee. Additionally, cleaning labor was charged at the same rates as the contracting work which was expensive and unfair in our eyes. We asked him at the end of the job to stop cleaning so we wouldn't incur further costs and ended up cleaning the job site ourselves. At the end of the day, the job cost us 1.5 times the original estimate that we wanted to reduce in the first place! Overall, Brien did a good job with small projects but is woefully unequipped to manage a larger renovation such as ours.

    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.

    Zappala Electric
    Jaime Zappala was terrific from start to finish. He responded quickly to my call, did an estimate within days and the job was completed within less than a week for a very reasonable price. Not only fixed the problems I had with my lights but came up with solutions that will save me money in the future. He is a really decent guy and a pleasure to have working in my home. I will definitely use him again and recommend him highly to everyone else.

    Zappala Electric
    The work went extremely well. Initially contacted Zappala Electric for an estimate in Fall 2015 to get an idea of what to budget and finally had the work done early Summer 2016. Both times Jaime was contacted, I received a call back the same day, and both times, I was told he could do the work starting the next day or two. Extremely fast response time, professional communication, easy-going. The work was done as requested (requested higher-end Square-D QO equipment specifically) and was done very neatly and professionally. Would call Zapppala Electric again in the future when needed in a heart beat.

    PLEASANT VALLEY ELECTRIC INC
    To my surprise because I know their reputation is good and we have always had a good experience with them when he contacted me sometime in March he said he had an hour to come by and work on my job. When I reminded him that it would take more than that because I had several major problems. He said were too busy for that kind of work right now and hung up and I never heard from them again despite calling them back to ask when they were going to come.

    Zappala Electric
    This is the second time I hired Jaime to perform work in my home. On both occasions, his work was professional and of high quality, he was very helpful in providing advice about how best to handle certain electrical issues, and his charges were entirely reasonable. Certainly, I will hire him for any future electrical work in my home.

    Norb Miller General Contractor
    Norb solved big problems for me with no fuss or BS. He worked quickly and arrived early every day. He offered helpful suggestions to do the renovation smarter and?followed up with regular consultations during the process, which went on for weeks due to arrival of new cabinets. After the?countertops and backsplash were installed by others, he came back to hook up the plumbing.
