    I have used a lot of contractors ove the years, almost all from the recommendations of Angie's List. I have never had anything but positive experiences. This was the third time I have called Pierce Shallis, having found him on Angie's List this past summer. This company is on a level all their own when it comes to professionalism, from Pierce and Heather and Cody to everyone else on their team. I called them for a large job invoving the tearing out of a lot of large very overgrown gardens, planting of deer resistant shrubs and trees, restacking stone walls, landscape fabric, pine straw mulching as well as resolving a multitude of drainage issues. Pierce and Cody are the utmost professionals. If you have a vision they will make it a reality. If you don't have a vision they are amazing at designing a beautiful landscape that is right for you. They gave me so many good ideas, and answered my many questions in an incredibly timely manner! Their entire team is dedicated to the job being done just right and on time. Pierce and Cody were here through the whole process. They are meticulous, right down to the smallest of details. The end result was even more beautiful than I had imagined! I am already looking forward to the next job I have scheduled with them.

    We moved into our house after a lot of renovation and many dumpsters, Our yard was an uneven and muddy mess. Mark and his team provided a full-service design and layout for our very neglected yard. We were only able to move forward with the first step: the hardscaping and regrading. The design was spot on. The team was amazing. We now have a usable yard with a path and stairs from the driveway/deck area to the walk-out basement door. We also have a retaining wall that replaced a very dubious DYI wall of rigid plastic sheets and rebar. Now we can use our entire yard without fear of the back tumbling down.

    It was great. The owner of the company came to Pennsylvania to give me a proposal. It took a little bit to be abler to get on the schedule but on that day 3 workers showed up with lots of equipment and material. They worked non stop and were done in one day. SJ did an excellent job. I have not seen 1 drop of water come through the walls since they put the system in. I am very happy and wished i would have done it earlier as it would have saved me a lot of anxiety.

    We have used JC Remodeling for several large projects since 2012. This was by far the largest project we have had them do - finishing a 1,300-1,400 sq. ft. basement. The project included obtaining all required permits and framing and finishing a large open area, a bedroom, a bathroom, and three unfinished areas for storage. Joe and Janice spent hours with me discussing the different options for the basement, from the overall concept of the project down to the small details like the location of the light fixtures and the placement of bath hooks. Joe and his team executed the plan from beginning to end and the project was finished in the time promised and at the price quoted. They worked every weekday (and occasionally on the weekends - after asking our permission first) from the day the project started to the day it was completed. Specifically, they: framed the walls of the finished areas with openings for entrance doors; opened the foundation wall to install a window in the bedroom area; removed one finished side of the existing basement stairway wall so you can look out over the basement when you are walking down the stairs - and built and angled knee wall at the bottom; installed supply and returns for HVAC with registers in the finished areas; installed a sewage ejector pump and ran water pipes from the water supply and sewage pipes from the fixtures to the ejector pump; ran electrical lines for light fixtures, power outlets, bath exhaust fans, and the ejector pump; installed dimmer switches in multiple locations; ran category 6 ethernet cable, coaxial cable, and alarm wires; installed smoke/CO2 detector in the new bedroom; installed insulation and drywall on the walls and ceiling; installed 6 doors to the finished areas as well as closet doors for the bedroom; built a shower tile base/pan and tiled shower floor and walls and installed frameless shower doors; installed tiles on floor of the bathroom; installed bathroom fixtures (showerhead, diverter, toilet, vanity with sink) and bathroom accessories; installed baseboards and door and window moldings; installed laminate flooring throughout the finished area; stained, polyurethaned, and installed oak treads and risers on stairway; and primed and painted ceilings, walls, doors, trims, and moldings. That description of the work completed does not explain the level of detail with which Joe and his team viewed this project. Every step along the way was meticulously thought through to ensure that the finished project would be perfect. We cannot say enough good things about JC Remodeling and the basement that we will enjoy for years to come! I highly recommend them for any similar projects!

    Mark Howarth was able to schedule the work almost immediately to my surprise. I gave specific instructions on what I needed done which were followed 100%. The pool deck needed to be extended so that new pool equipment could be installed before the pool season began. This also required replacing an existing homemade retaining wall and fence that would blend in with the existing pool deck hardscaping. The work crew was easy to work with and were able to complete the entire project in one week. I look forward to hiring Greenstone Gardens this year for my next outdoor project.

    The water issue was in a small unfinished corner of the basement after a very heavy rain and only once since we moved in without mold issues- but I decided to get French drains and mold treatment done anyways for the entire basement. Bob gave me a good estimate and then tried matching the lowest estimate I had gotten (his was the second lowest but I decided to go with him). The installation work went smoothly (planning to get the basement refinished soon from one of his contractors who was there for the job so he knows where everything goes back) . Bob Steck was very responsive, funny and thorough. Their team was very professional. Did the work just as promised - no issues with dust and dirt during and after the job). They started and finished on time ( took 2-days). The concrete is almost completely dry and have had one heavy rain so far- we are Very impressed by their work. Highly recommended.

    I did not feel that the inspection was very comprehensive. I wanted the evaluation in writing and he did not give it to me. He never sent me anything in writing. I think he came fairly quickly. I paid for a service that I did not really receive. He just gave me a verbal, quick reading.

    It went very well. They responded in a timely fashion, were very professional and saved my Japanese maple from being ruined due to the flooding. My house smells much better and they made sure the mold was gone. Their pricing was fair and they completed the job in 2 days as planned. I would use them again but hopefully will not have any more water issues as they solved the my biggest problem effectively.

    I had a long-standing problem with water in my basement. A couple of times a year when it would rain very hard I would get water in one corner of my basement. AJ provided me with a thorough and very professional assessment of the potential problems and I chose him over several other contractors based on his knowledge, straight-forward approach, and strong online reviews.


     AJ and his team did an outstanding job installing/repairing our French drain, installing new sump pumps, and repairing holes in the exterior wall. They arrived when they said they would and completed the job in one day as promised. The quality of the work was excellent. And what really impressed me was that they went to great lengths to isolate and protect both the other parts of the basement and all of the items in the basement from the areas where they were working. As another reviewer mentioned, they cleaned up so well that it was if they were never there. AJ also followed-up to make sure everything was OK. He was a pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend him. Thank you AJ and Caroline!

    I have really never had such a good experience with a contractor. Tom and his guys showed up when he said they would, cleaned up after themselves, and were great to work with. Originally I planned to have them take the basement down to studs, but as we got into it we found out there was more to be done (the house is almost 100 years old). They ended up replacing old framing and poured new concrete in some areas where the foundation needed work. We even worked though a tough issue on the header of a door that Tom offered a suggestion that was beyond my expectations in terms of making the space usable. The great thing was that no matter what came up, I never felt like Tom was trying to get every last dollar out of me. He told me what was going on and gave me options, and the options were all reasonably priced. I've run into others that don't have the kind of ethics. 
    I ended up having him do some work on a bathroom and a bedroom while he was here because I was so satisfied with the basement work and the guys he brought in.
    The bottom line is that Tom cares about his work and his customers. He has a team around him that feels the same way. I would use them again without hesitation (and plan to).
