Description of Work
They removed old sheet vinyl flooring, which contained asbestos, from three rooms. The estimator showed up for the appointment on time and provided the price and contract in less than a week. We scheduled the work to fit in with another contractor working at our home. They curtained off the work area to protect the rest of the house from asbestos exposure. The Waco crew showed up on time, was courteous and conscientious, and completed the work on schedule.

Called and obtained quote on 6/16/2014. Project Manager (Louis Walker) called and said he had an opening on 6/20/2014 and said he could do the work sooner than expected. Kevin (Foreman?) and 3 others showed up on time and went to work on the floor. Job involved moving some heavy furniture around. They finished in less than 6 hours. Since other reviews indicated that air quality tests had been performed, I requested a copy of the report from the General Superintendent (Marshall Taylor) and was told he'd mail it to me, but it's been more than two weeks and I still haven't received it. I called and left email messages but never received a response. While the work was performed satisfactorily and quickly, there was no follow-up and the Project Manager never contacted me to verify the project was completed correctly and provide me with a certified copy of the air quality test results.

Description of Work
Removed asbestos/tile floor from family room (approximately 250 sq ft) and took away all debris.

Service Provider Response

Hi [member name removed], Thanks for taking time to provide your review of our project. After getting notice from Angie's List that Waco had a new review I signed in and read your comments. Lewis Walker was contacted and made aware that you had not received your copy of the final air samples. Lewis tells me that you now have them in hand. Reviews and comments such as yours help us find the areas where we need to work harder. We appreciate the opportunity to have performed this project for you and we hope that we will get an opportunity for other projects that you may have as well. (Larry Battaile, Waco's Angie's List coordinator).

A local competitor quoted me at $2,400 for the 10' x 14' vinyl floor removal. I called Waco and their rep came out quickly. I told him I was going to remove all cabinets, trim, and vents before the floor removal. With me doing some of the leg work, they quoted me at $1,400. How could I pass that price up? We agreed on an appointment a few weeks later (the delay was my request). They showed up on time and ready to work. The man who came to my house to give me the quote (Keith M.) also came out that morning to supervise the set up and double check the foreman's plan of action. He left after he felt they were headed in the right direction. I was glad that he took the time to come by and double check his workers. The removal went fairly quickly. They got the two layers of vinyl flooring out down to the subfloor in about 3 hours. They contract a laboratory to run an air quality test after the removal but before they tear down the protective sheeting. Unfortunately, this air quality test takes over an hour. So they are left sitting in their truck outside with no other work to do until the lab gives them the thumbs up to tear everything else down. Not their fault I suppose. Payment was made after their work was done and they emailed me the air quality report from the lab. Should I ever need their services again, I will definitely hire this company.

Description of Work
I was remodeling my kitchen and needed a pro to take out the old asbestos vinyl flooring.

They were very competitive. The other quote we had was for $900 more. We liked that they are local. They follow all the guidelines for proper asbestos removal. They very thoroughly explained the process and the safety measures they put in place to take care of quality samples afterwards. The one negative thing is that they don't work with my schedule very well. He comes in very early, like 5:30 or 6 in the morning. I work evening shift so I don't get home until midnight so the time is difficult for us to coordinate. We've been communicating a lot by email and he is very quick to get back to me.

It went fine. I liked the work. They scheduled me in a timely matter and did the job in less than a day. They were rather thorough about it as well. I would highly recommend them to others.

Months after the original quote, I phoned them and requested the work. They honored the original quote and did the work on short notice. They were prompt and the rest of the project moved on as planned.

Description of Work
They removed the asbestos from my old boiler so that an HVAC company could remove/replace the boiler.
