  • Clear Drainz Plumbing and Heating Inc
    Our sump pump broke in the night during a bad storm. The basement flooded and we had no idea what to do. I called Vartan first thing in the morning and he picked up - I didn't even have to leave a message and wait for a return call! To my relief, he had a plumber in my neighborhood and was able to get him to our house within the hour. I was thrilled at the speed and professionalism! The plumber, Eddie, was fantastic as well. He was very knowledgeable and friendly. He answered all our questions and installed a new sump pump quickly, soon draining the basement. I will definitely be calling Vartan again for our future plumbing issues

  • Applied Service Corp
    There were essentially four steps. First was the initial proposal after examination of the property. Excellent customer service. Questions were answered with professionalism, kindness, clarity and knowledge. Next step was signing the papers and the initial payment was made. Flawless... I was in the office and it was friendly and a nice environment. Third was the placement of the new, above-ground tank. The men were on site when they said to expect them, we did a walk about afterwards so the new tank/lines were familiarized and the shut off valve was noted. Lastly, the tank pull. Precision. It's amazing how the area was barely disturbed and a shrub was placed back in its original spot with such care. The kindness of that last step is appreciated (with an understanding that the evergreen might not stay healthy). A few other concerns were addressed right away with kindness, understanding and some humor

  • Proficient Plumbing & Heating
    I can't say enough good things about Proficient Plumbing. This was a big job. They couldn't reach the pipe to replace it from the basement due to a bathroom bump out and had to excavate outside to be able to remove an old, rusted & broken cast iron pipe and replace it with PVC. Paul, Kyle, Tim, and Jose were amazing to work with. Apparently this problem was years in the making, and I'm so relieved that it's finally been resolved. I've hired them before and would definitely hire them again. They're true professionals, honest, and communicate in a way that's easy to understand. And Kristen kept me informed every step of the way and was such a pleasure to deal with

    A bit about my project. 110 y/o home, poured concrete foundation, multiple cracks, crumbling walls, leaky windows and portions of the floor that were still dirt. I contacted 4 different contractors/waterproofers. One never responded after seeing the basement, 2 offered up French drains as the only solution which would do nothing for the cracks and crumbling walls that could over time compromise the house. Then Ed from General Brick Designs called. Ed was the only contractor to discuss stopping the water from entering the home which is exactly what I wanted. Ed showed up with an array of evaluation tools, thoroughly explained the issues and reviewed the necessary mitigation steps. Ed’s team came in moved all my “stuff” neatly to the side, they dug out one side of the house, reset window wells, ground down all crumbling concrete, reinforced weak areas with high psi concrete and steel underpinnings, triple sealed walls, repaired large portions of the basement floor. His team showed up on time every day, worked constantly and diligently in 17degree weather. After the first day of grinding walls when they left for the day the basement was cleaner than when they had started. To say I am pleased with the result is an understatement. Ed and his team are consummate professionals, the job they did in the basement and outer wall was no less than spectacular

    JCruz Excavating did an amazing job clearing land for me at my house. They were informative about the work they would be doing. Continuously kept me updated on the work they were doing and a time frame of when the job would be completed.

  • Ferrandino Enterprises LLC
    Jason Ferrandino was introduced to me by my pool contractor, Shoreline Pools. The project entailed gut renovating the entire 4 acre yard which involved site work, excavation, irrigation, masonry work and landscaping. We planted over 200 16-18 ft green giants, laid down 2 acres of sod and installed decorative plants around kitchen and pool hardscape. The outcome was amazing and I couldn't be happier. Jason is a consummate professional, extremely knowledgeable, responsive and great value for the money spent. He knows a lot about a lot and is a true savant. I look forward to working with Jason in the future to replace my roof and build a guest house on the property for my parents. An all around good guy who is trustworthy and who delivers on his promises and then some. Scott Brod

  • A.M. Shield Waterproofing Corp
    A Window well filled up with water then came through the window seal into the unfinished basement. We scheduled an appointment with Them for the following week. On the appointment date, Anthony conducted inspection of problem walked around the home & examined the problem window well and basement wall. We recently had the job done. We were amazed watching them work. They did a beautiful job in a very very tight space (see pics) They cleaned up the area when finished. We are very satisfied with the process. Starting Anthony’s expert advice to the gentleman who did the work..The new well looks great. Thanks Again Anthony & AM Shield!!
