Working with Howard and the entire ABL team was terrific. It is rare to find a company where the team has been together for as long as they have been at ABL. They are truly a family and that shows in the quality of workmanship, professionalism and customer service. We could not be happier with the results of the work. It is high quality and the project price was fair given the terrific workmanship...

The ABL team was efficient, clean, and paid close attention to detail. The entire process from quoting through the final inspection was excellent. The associates are well-trained, hard-working, professional, and friendly. I've paid less to have this house painted but the quality of workmanship and warranty is less than The ABL Group has provided. This company does quality work!

Howard and his team are the best! We needed to update our entry area and dining room, and convert an old iron staircase railing into a modern wooden one. The whole team was easy to work with, started and finished exactly when they said they would, and the result is just beautiful. We are completely satisfied and will hire them again. Many thanks!

Outstanding, meticulous, and top professional job by the paint crew lead by Valentin. The work took just four days and they were always on time, hard working, and left everyday with my condo clean and furniture carefully back in place. Valentin also went above and beyond by proactively unfreezing the hot and cold water valves servicing my washing machine and installing new hoses for me. Howard Lip...
