Recent Earthquake Retrofitting Reviews in Boston
- Alpha Structural, Inc.The Owner came to my house and did a thorough check all around the foundation of the house. It was a great experience - he subdued all of my worries about the foundation of my 80 year old house, was very clear about what type of work I would get the most value for, and didn't make any effort to scare me or push me into anything. I really appreciated his honesty and sincerity. He was really good at seeing details in the concrete and stucco and framing that I never noticed (Foundation Forensics) and then explaining them clearly
- BOSTON DRAIN COMPANYFor a long time we have had an odor in our entire, historical building. We thought it could be a dead rodent in the heating system, because it was coming through the vent. We had several different companies come out, including a pest control and environmental company. It ended up being a broken sewer pipe in the building. It is an old building and pipes were breaking. I discovered later it has happened throughout the neighborhood. It was quite a major project and it was difficult to find someone to come in and go under the building to replace the pipe. We had to move out as well. We found Boston Drain and they came and did the work. It was a big job, as they had to open up a floor in the unit and go down and clean up. There were several people I would like to bring attention to: Ken May was such a devoted employee. Given the nature of the job I was amazed that his spirits were so upbeat. Mike and Bill the supervisor and one other person were also great. The crew, overall, had the spirit one would need to do such a job. It had to be quite unnerving. They came in and saved us. To my knowledge I am not sure there are many companies that do this kind of work in Boston. It was difficult to find them. But when we did find them, they had quite a bit of experience in below building work. They also used cameras to aid them. I feel with the equipment and the way they had to proceed to figure out where the issue was, to me it seemed they used methods that were cost saving. This job should have been costly and destructive. They were able to contain it to keep the cost down. It could have been much more expensive. I would use them again. You can't get plumbers to do this kind of job. I did call a company and they weren't even able to locate what the problem was because it was below ground. Boston Drain has had experience in this area. It was so stressful. They came in and knew how to go about locating the pipe, it was not as costly as it could have been and they brought a lot of relief to us. The quality is unknown because it is under the building

"On the same day as my call, the plumber came in the middle of an at-home appointment, so I gave a very fast explanation and walked away. He quickly and professionally solved the problem by snaking out hair and rust, plus did the same for the sink that I hadn't noticed was draining slowly. Now that it's fixed, it should have been obvious so I'm really glad he checked it. Would definitely hire again! Thank you!

"Any renovation of this size will involve some pain but what distinguished Out of the Woods was the way they managed it. When we went in for the initial discussion, they clearly explained their policies, contracts, working methods and pricing. Over a total of a 7 month project, they have stuck to just about everything. When we had a complaint or question they were very responsive. The very few issues we had were resolved to our satisfaction. They are not the least expensive company but "you get what you pay for". They did what they promised, on time and on budget. With really excellent quality. And we can now enjoy our new space.

"They absolutely Rock! My asphalt driveway and cobble stone entrance and border looks amazing. John the owner was helpful throughout the process and kept me informed to the very end. His crew definitely know their stuff. They even performed additional scope for the same agreed price. Piped my gutter drain line under the new pavement and made a creek with the excess stone/boulders they dug up to help guide the rain water away from my new driveway. This company is truly a customers dream contractor.

"To Expert House Movers <br /> We wanted to let you know just how pleased we are with the work you did on our house. Before we contacted you, we had several other contractors look at our home. We actually had hired another contractor, who took such a long time, never returned our calls, missed meetings, and took months to even get us our bid. And when that contractor did get us our bid, it was more than doubled our previously discussed budget! <br /> That is when we called you, you came out immediately, was extremely professional, but more importantly, you had a personal interaction with both me and my wife throughout the entire process. You answered all our phone calls, all of our questions, and talked with us throughout the entire process. We felt extremely confident and assured through the entire lift. This house is our dream house and we are going to live in it until we die, and you knew how much it meant to us, and you took care of it as if it were your own. <br /> As you know, my wife ended up in the hospital with some complications with her surgery while you were working on our home, and you took such great care of our house. You knew she was very disappointed that she could not be there, as she designed the foundation window placements and had a big part in the doors and steps. Your crew was so kind and so professional and meticulous, that they knew that two particular windows were very important to my wife. Your crew wanted to get them perfect and asked me some questions about them, that I could not answer. My wife was feeling better, but still in the hospital, and I called her on the phone, while your crew waited for me, as she and I discussed for several minutes the exact placement of the windows. Some minor changes had to be made and your crew could have easily just slapped the two windows in the new location, which was only slightly off of the original plan, and be done with it, but they stopped and pointed out where my wife originally wanted them and the new location difference and wanted to be sure that my wife understood the change, and wanted me to talk to my wife first. I was so very impressed that they made the adjustments on the spot that my wife suggested over the phone. I don’t think any other company would have gone through this much trouble to please their customers! <br /> You also were very respectful of our property, neighbors, and your crew were always very willing to stop and explain the process of what was going to happen next. Not one time did we ever feel like we were in your way. Actually, it was the opposite, we felt like you and your crew were very excited to show us your equipment and how it worked and actually wanted us around so we could see how it all worked and so we could see for ourselves how everything was perfect - and it was! <br /> We will always remember you and think of you so highly. Thank you for making the beginning our home building so easy and off to such a perfect start. There are so many things that can go wrong when redoing a home, and having it go off with such a perfect start gives us such great hope. You have certainly set bar very high for the other contractors that will be coming in for the other parts of the home! Your company and its crew should be very proud of its work. You do a job that is very difficult, complex and tedious, but you do it with care, expertise, and perfection. We actually miss you guys and wish you were around. You are like family to us. We only wish we could rate your service and staff A++ , if there were such a rating. <br /> All our best and blessings, <br /> Randy and Elizabeth <br />

"<p>We had changed home insurance companies not long ago because they had refused a claim of hail damage that had been pointed out to us by two different, independent home repair professionals with nothing to gain. After a strong wind storm did further damage to our roof, we hired Mr. Katz. He stepped into our shoes and did all the interacting with our home insurance company, including filing the claim, meeting with their adjusters, then helping select a roofing company. The results were beyond our highest expectations. Mr. Katz put together our claim for a new roof, and it went without a hitch. Mr. Katz then helped find a highly professional roofer who personally supervised every step of the process and the work of a highly capable crew. In short, Mr. Katz handled everything from start to finish. </p> <p>One of the highest compliments we give those providing services for pay is that they are a "true professional." Without qualification, we can recommend Mr. Katz as a true professional and highly recommend him for any roofing or home repair needs. </p> <p>Should you have any questions or want to discuss anything, please feel free to call us at (502) 228-8820--and you are welcome to come by and see our new roof.</p> <p>Sincerely,</p> <p>Lee and Sherleen Sisney</p> <br />
