    Mike was very prompt in returning my initial call. After returning my call Mike was quick to come to view job. After receiving the written estimate Mike started work within 3 days. He brought one of his crew, Chris, to work with him. Both men were very professional, meticulous and took pride in their work. They cleaned up after they were done. I was very satisfied with the job done and the price. I asked Mike if he would be interested in any future smaller projects that I may decide to have done and he said yes. I will definitely hire him for all future electrical jobs.

    This is the third time I have used JDM Electric and I am very pleased with the work they do.  Jason who runs the business and Mark who helps him are both very pleasant people and they are quite helpful and professional.  They are very prompt, showing up precisely when promised.

    On his last visit (taking care of some electrical outlets that were not functioning), Jason checked out my system and noticed that the service entrance cable was in very bad shape.  Upon further investigation, he discovered that there was no grounding for the house or the water pipes either.  I was appalled that this was the case and am very glad Jason discovered these problems and took care of them before anything bad happened.

    The light that Mark installed outside my house (after drilling through the basement wall and siding) looks great. He did a beautiful job.

    I intend to use JDM Electric for all my electrical work and recommend it very highly to others.

    We actually had a fire. Flames were shooting from one of the outlets. We got lucky- caught it early. No major damage. But we called Bob and he rearranged his schedule so he could come over the next morning. How bout that! 
    Checked everything over to make sure it was ok. He found the cause and fixed it. Also found a few other problem areas and fixed them.
    Then he added a surge protector to the main and added the backyard lighting- some things we'd talked about doing for a while.
    It all cost about $800. Seems pretty reasonable for the peace of mind we have now. 

    Here's an update.
    UGI came to replace a broken glass meter cover and noticed that work had been done. They sent over an electrical inspector to check all the new stuff and to see that it all had been done to code. Guess what- there were issues that needed to be corrected. Nothing major, just a few things not done to code. I called Bob to come and do whatever needed to be done. He never came. I called repeatedly. Even saw him face to face- he said he'd take care of it. Yeh, he took care of it alright. I'm facing fines from the city for problem not being corrected timely as well as fines cause Bob didn't take out a city work permit like he was supposed to, and I still need to call someone to come correct the original issues. That will cost me another few hundred I'm sure. The last time I called Bob, about two weeks ago I left him the message, "Bob, we need to get this done. You can charge me for a service call, let's just get this done". No response. Know why? Cause he's a j******. Thanks Bob.

    A total disater from start to what ended up being NOT FINISHED.  When workers did show they were not supervised.    Caught one of them smoking in our house and using one of our knick knacks as an ashtray.  Our drawers were rifled through and later we discovered items missing.  Permit was never produced at the job site- was part of contract and was told repeatedly that he had applied for and obtained permit.  We ended up demanding a completion agreement which was provided,  Signed contract on June 29, 2012 and exercised right to declare it null and void as provided in the completion  agreement  on February 14, 2013.  PROJECT WAS NEVER COMPLETED.    Gino Nalaschi and Eco Builder Services are the living example of why contractors are given bad names.  We now have the task of finding another contractor who is willing to complete the job.   I would advise you to search any contractor you may be considering not only under the business name but under his/her individual name as well.   
    Signed contract at end of June 2012 and supplied deposit as required.  We requested that work not begin until August.  We were advised that jobs were lined up and they would not even be able to start until August.  Finally got him to commit to starting on 10/1/2012.  I waited for them to show up.  Got a text from Gino that he would be there soon.  Replied to  him that I was already two hours late for work.  He replied that he was stuck at anoither job and that I should go to work. I asked him to call me when he was leaving the job he was at and I would meet him at my house.  This was at 9:46am.  At 5:32 pm I was stil waiting for his call.  Finally, on 10/3 someone showed up to begin demo.  Workers showed up unprepared.  Tracked mud and what I can only guess is some sort of grease on living room carpet which will now have to be replaced.  On 10/3  Gino notified me of hidden water damage and provided an estimate to repair it.  We signed the additional contract for this work and paid for it.  Gino hired a sub to complete the repairs which were completed by 10/9/2012 at which point I received a text from Gino with a smiley face and all that "roof is all fixed the rest of the demo tomorrow will be done your [sic] leak free."
    Now the fun begins in earnest.  On 10/10 some workers were there but left- leaving lumber and Trufloor on our front lawn, uncovered and exposed to the elements and any potential thieves.  Gino said someone would be back to cover up and that they would return in the am.  Here we go, 10/15 one guy sick, another called off and Gino out of town.  10/17- asked Gino where permit was since it was not displayed. Per Gino, he would have to pick it up "tomorrow morning he's only there Tuesday and Thursdays I missed it yesterday".  10/18 Gino notified us there would be a delay of two days on our job because he had tools stolen from one of his jobs.  10/23 texted Gino to see if anyone would be working on our project that day.  Gino replied "I'm sorry I can't send anyone there today . . . . "    Everyday I had to text him to see if there would be workers coming.  We had cats we had to lock in an unheated room and did not want to put them out there unnecessarily.
    11/29/2012 texted Gino for update and got excuse of no workers available-- holiday, hunting season. 
    And on and on and on.  Our joke of the day was guessing what the day's excuse would be.  It was the only way we could deal with the stress of this whole situation
    Got the "Truck Broke"  excuse twice as well as a "worker wrecked his car".
    Still no permit.
    Then on 1/2 we had a disagreement on when next payment of $1,000 was due- contract stated when windows were in.  He argued that it was was seven of the eight windows were in because window in bathroom was separate.  He then proceeds to say, and I quote, "Well it don't matter to me then I'm trying to resolve this and if you can't work with me then I can't send guys there until next week sorry total charge for price on contract is 7 windows to be exact I'm paying got 8th out of pocket but I can only finish it in the next few days."   "Listen I don't want to argue I just want to complete job but I can't send guys there without money sorry" 
    Now, let me point out that contract clearly states eight windows,  he simply forgot to add in the cost of one of them to his estimate.  In addition, all windows were lumped in as one phase of the project.  There was no distinction made between the bathroom window and the other seven windows as he tried to argue when he demanded the $1,000 for installation of the windows.  I had, earlier given him payment for installation of drywal before it was totally completed and ended up not seeing a worker for weeks afterwards. I, at this point, wanted this guy out of my house and my life.   Got him to agree to provide a completion agreement stating all work would be done by January 7, 2013 or no additional payments would be due  and contract could be declared null and void.
    On January 5, 2013, we asked what time workers would be arriving and were told "well not sure now I'm having banking problems and  can't get the materials there yet.  Jody is sick so I am trying to get there." 
    The last time we saw him, he was working on the plumbing and told us that it was going to cost us an additional $100 to which we agreed to pay.  That was the first week in January.  We have not seen him since.  
    During this whole production there were days when we specifcally asked that no work be done because we would be out of town.  These days did not total more than seven and could no way have cause this project WHICH WAS SUPPOSED TO BE DONE IN 10-14 DAYS or in anyway have caused the PROJECT TO NEVER BE COMPLETED.

    I contacted Consolidated builders based on the evaluations I read on Angie's list. The initial contacts went very well and I was excited about the work that would be performed. He seemed to have a clear understanding of what need to be accomplished and I felt confident that the work would be completed according to my wishes. After some delay in his being able to start the job (not his fault) I contacted him again and went over again the work that was needed. We had some meeting scheduled and he had to cancel them and in the mean time he had lost his cell phone and the only way to make contact was via e-mail. We scheduled a time to meet so that I could give him a down payment on the work and he did not show up. After not receiving responses to my e-mails I decided to look for someone else to do the work.

    Angie's List will tell you that my review would be more relevant if the contractor actually DID the work. But what is really important is communication between the contractor and the homeowner, and if the contractor ignores 2 phone messages at his office (it's just an answering machine), and 4 voice mail messages on his cell phone, and stops replying to emails, that is very relevant to the service this contractor provides. Of course, the problem may lie in the fact that he quoted a price of $800 for all this work in his email to me and may have realized subsequently that he dropped the 4th digit from the price. In any case, an explanation and adjustment would have been all that was needed. It sounds like he does good work from his reviews here, but be prepared for the hassle of trying to get a hold of this fellow. You just might want to go straight to his "office" on Hancock street. That's something I didn't try. Good luck.

    He is very reliable and he is very good at what he does. He was here right on time and he did the work in the time he would told me. He was very courteous and he cleaned up after himself. I would recommend him and use him again.
