Matching on Angi
The entire job took less than three weeks once we were issued a permit. Sal did everything necessary to obtain the demo and building permits. Several major items had to be taken care of in order to build the garage which included tree removal, land survey and asbestos survey for demo of the old garage. Sal provided me with several contacts and suggestions to get the trees and surveys done quickly and at a reasonable cost. We had an existing garage that Sal had removed in a day. Sal spent a lot of time answering all my questions and kept in touch the entire time on a day to day basis. He helped us design the garage layout and was able to work within our budget. Sal was very patient with my needs and fully explained why and how they would build my garage. Sal is very knowledgable and not only explained why something should be done a certain way but why not some other way. Sal and his crew not only meet code but also exceed code where it really counts. The Alaskan slab had a rebar grid and double rebar around the perimeter in addition to steel mesh. Code only requires the mesh. Sals design creates a very strong slab that doesn't add a lot of cost for what you get in the end. He also used rebar in the concrete apron in front of my garage. The masons did an amazing job on the concrete. I could see my reflection in the power trowel finish and the sidewalks are perfection. All the lumber used to build the garage was hand selected and only straight lumber that was free of mold and major defects was used. The fit and finish of the garage is flawless. I have walked around it many times and still get impressed. I work in construction and I understand what good work is. The flashing and gutters are also very nicely done. The garage doors are very high quality and when I did a heat load calculation I was pleased to find how well the doors were insulated compared to other designs. They have a polyurethane foam. The garage door openers work great and have a lot of nice features. While building the garage Sal was able to have his crew make repairs to my house that included fixing my roof that lifted at one edge, repair siding damaged by my weed wacker and replace soffit flashing that was improperly installed by another contractor. It was nice to have this work done at the same time and put my mind at ease. It saved me money too because they were already on site with all there tools. Overall I am very happy with my garage and walkways. Sal educated me along the way and was always on time, has a great attitude and works hard to please. I called him all hours of the day and if he didn't answer he responded very quickly. People driving down my street stop and compliment my garage almost every time I'm outside. It's really a work of art. The work site was always kept tidy. Sal kept the area swept and used a magnet to pick up any nails and staples. I could go on forever about how great everything went but you will have to experience it for yourself. If your looking to have work done on your home and you really care about getting it done right then call 518 remodel and see what Sal can do for you. You won't be let down.
