    Pete's Absolute Asphalt
    Our driveway is about 300 feet long with curves, on a slope with a fair amount of water seepage, and after only 10 years the edges were starting to crumble. Another company wanted to completely rip up the existing asphalt and lay down a new base and asphalt, at great expense. Pete felt most of the driveway was fine but needed to have the cracks filled in, the surface sealed, and he had the brilliant idea of packing crushed stone gravel along the edges to shore up the sides of the driveway. This gravel contains large and fine stones and lyme, which hardens like cement after exposure to rain. The project was delayed multiple times by terrible weather conditions, but Pete guaranteed he would finish the job, and he did. His prices were reasonable and he saved us a lot of money while rescuing our driveway for another 10 years. He and his crew were very pleasant to work with, stayed in contact and kept us updated on when they would do each of the steps. We will have him check the driveway each year in the future and keep us on top of crack and surface sealing.

    Excellent! The office manager was very easy to work with and schedule the job. The crew came while we were at work and had everything finished and looking great. Job site left very neat. Very reasonable charge for sealing the driveway.

    Lambert & Sons Paving
    They were responsive to my request for reshaping the driveway and repeated back the plan to be sure we were on the same page. They did a great job of making the driveway very level and working around the drainage pipe that crossed underneath the driveway. Cons included the many cigarette butts left behind at the site, and some of the lines could have been cleaner, notably at the very end of the driveway where it meets the road. One side was masterfully worked to accommodate the pipe under the driveway but the other side looks more hastily done. Had I been home at the time they finished they may have been happy to reworked these aspects but I had to leave and they were done by the time I returned. Overall extremely fast work and the crew was friendly and polite.

    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.

    Tierney Sealcoating Service
    The sealing was merely cosmetic. The thin spray might work well on a newer driveway but started to come off within a year. Why spray an older driveway with pits if you know this will happen. Surely they must be able to offer something different for this instead of wham bam done.

    Genson Overhead Door Inc
    We had a new overhead garage door  and garage door opener installed. After ordering the new door a spring on the old garage door broke down. They came promptly and replaced the broken spring, but with a wrong size of spring. The door and the garage door opener broke down completely shortly after the wrong spring was installed. The new garage door and opener work fine now and we are very happy with it.

    Pete's Absolute Asphalt
    Pete and several workers came 2 days prior to the repaving to prepare the expanded turn around site (remove roots from old tree stump, excavate area, fill with gravel) and do the cut-outs at the garage and road. Today, 10 workers, several trucks, a roller, and a paving machine arrived as scheduled. They completed the job in several hours.
    They did an excellent job. It looks great and I believe it will hold up well. The agreement was for "2+/- inches" of asphalt. As Pete had implied in earlier discussions, he likes to deliver more than expected. The asphalt is more like 3" in most places and the expanded turn around is larger than specified. His price for this work was several thousand less than the other proposal I had received.
    Nice job!

    Pete's Absolute Asphalt
    Pete came out to my house within a day after I contacted him through Angie's List  for a quote.  He explained to me everything that they would be doing before he could put in my new driveway from killing the grass on the area to be paved, to grading the area to everything that would happen the day the paving was put in.  I felt very informed about a process I knew nothing about.  He even explained the different grades of paving asphalt, and what would be best for my sloping driveway.  On the day the asphalt was put down, everyone involved was helpful and able to answer all of my questions.  Pete was also there to make sure the job was finished correctly, make sure that everything was sloped exactly right for heavy rainfall, and answer my questions.  It was nice to deal with someone who I felt was very honest.

    They were upfront with their scheduling and that it would likely be a few months before they would be able to perform the work on the driveway. The gentleman who came to give us the quote (no estimates, what they tell you is the price you will pay - which I liked). I had another company give me a quote of about the same amount, and that person told me that Mancini-Ferrara is the best around. All quotes/estimates I got for doing the driveway were about the same.
    We were put on the list for this year (2015) and I was told that the asphalt jobs began in April/May (when the weather shifts to consistently spring). They called and set up the job the last week of July. We weren't in any hurry so chose to wait for the best crew to do our job.
    The work itself began around 9am and they were able to complete our job in one day, finishing around 6pm. I assume larger jobs may require more time.  The finished product was fantastic. I was extremely impressed with the quality of work performed.
    Also, every time I called their office, the customer service was excellent and very friendly. Highly recommend this company.

    William Lowe General Contracting
    His work itself was excellent. The problem was that we agreed upon a price, and he kept raising it (I only knew about the raises from the bills he sent; he never informed or consulted me about it), and didn't respond to my inquiries regarding why the price was going up without discussion or agreement. Apparently he changed his contact information while keeping his old contact information on the bills he sent out. I finally paid him for the plows he had done at the price we had agreed upon and terminated the relationship.
