How $6500.00 to $26000.00. He took too much advantage of a woman like me. Also, he messed up my next door garage door cement spots. This problem is still going on.

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
Alex Gregg gave me first estimate of $6500.00 on 02/17/2013. Next day he came, there is a problem with the chimney seal around the chimney $2500.00. 26ft x 30ft foundation $20000.00 more.

My complaint about this firm is that Gregg, as he does the work you hired him for, is constantly finding new things which absolutely have to be done now--then he offers a "deal" if you get it all done at once. It still costs a bundle and you can't get the job broken down with prices for each component. And if things go wrong, you have to pay a second time to get them fixed. No taking responsibilit...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
Patched a roof repair done by others. Seems OK today.  Injected foam to stabilize the rotted wooden supports of a metal cornice. Have no idea if that was done properly or not. No idea if it was needed or not. Poured concrete for new patio, sealed back of building. Patio job went wrong--hard rain flooded kitchen and damaged newly laid wood floor and interior wall. Patio had to be dug up and done properly with waterproofing against house wall, which was what I thought I had specified at first. Second job very costly--on top of original charge. Stone edging for patio initially put in crookedly until I howled, insisted stones be set right. Workman confessed he had been a teacher in his country of origin. Waterproofed basement. Very expensive. Process, involving injecting chemicals into basement wall, described as "very new" and needing special technician's license. Produced awful fumes which bothered neighbors. A month or so later Gregg came back and said some spots had been missed and were leaking. Proposed to finish job properly FOR ANOTHER $9000. I refused. That said, basement is now quite dry, and walls, which were crumbling with damp, seem somewhat  stabilized.

I would like to know what happen that you would go from a A rating on your review to this nasty review. Number 1 you did not have a new roof put on you paid to have it repaired and coated I told you then it would need to be coated again in a couple years. When I came in Nov 11 it was a courtisey call to remind you that's all YOU DID NOT HAVE A NEW ROOF YOU WERE NEVER TOLD IT WAS A NEW ROOF IF YOU ...

I used Angie's List to find someone to repair my elderly uncle's roof.  I managed this from over 1,000 miles away so this was somewhat tricky.  Only 2 firms on Angie's list responded to my requests.  Both quotes were similar in value but I liked Alex's approach to repairing the roof better.  Alex responds quickly to phone and text messages but he is not the quickest at getting to the job site.  He...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
Alex repaired some damaged flashing caused by Hurricane Irene.  He then sealed the roof to prevent future leaks.

It didn't go at all.  They never returned my call for an estimate.  If Mr Gregg is so busy he should at least change his voice mail response to say that if he does not return calls after two days the caller should then move on to another provider.  I wasted two weeks waiting for a call back.

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
I called Alex Gregg Home Improvement around the middle of Oct to get an estimate for cement repair.  I left three messages on the answering service/ voicemail.  Today it is Oct 26 approximate two weeks later and Mr Gregg has never returned my call, even though his voice mail response says someone will get back to you within 24 hours.

There was evidence of water seepage around the fireplaces on several floors of the house.  We called 6 different roofers, 5 from Angie's List and 1 from a private recommendation. Two never returned the phone call.  One called  several times when I wasn't home to say he was in the neighborhood and could stop by, but never made an appointment. Two came and examined the job and gave  verbal estimates...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
