I happened to see Jack and his company finishing up a job at my neighbor's (new interlocking for their driveway). The neighbor was really impressed with their work, so I asked for a quote. I wanted to have the side of our house redone with interlocking and a concrete pad built in the back for a shed. Jack gave a very reasonable quote, and came by a few weeks later. He and his partner worked tirelessly for two days to get the job done, and did a terrific job. I was really impressed with their work, and would highly recommend them to anyone.

We needed some leaky windows replaced, were recommended to Encore by our neighbors. They were not the cheapest of the quotes we got, but went with them because of their reputation and our neighbor's opinion. They were confident they could finish the job on the short timeline we had to get the job done, as we needed them finished before we were going on vacation. Dave was very personable, knowledgable, and willing to answer all of our questions. The installer was excellent as well, finishing the job in one day. Would definitely recommend them.

These guys were great! They came by to clean our ducts shortly after we purchased the house, and they were very knowledgeable and respectful of our house. They even found asbestos wrapping around our ducts, something our home inspector didn't even find the first time around. They cleaned everything very efficiently, and would recommend them to anyone.

Larry and his team were great. I called several electricians for quotes on the job, and although his quote wasn't the cheapest, I felt the most comfortable with him. He was very respectful, knowledgeable, and answered all my questions and requests with patience and understanding. He and his team worked hard to finish the job on time, cleaned and patched all of the holes they made (and there wasn't that many either). The ESA inspector was even impressed with their work! Highly recommended.

We had found some mold in our basement when we purchased our house, and some water was leaking into the basement. After remediating the mold, I called 6 different waterproofing companies, and not only was Mario's quote the best quote between them, it was 3 times less than the highest quote. Mario patiently answered all of my questions (and I had a lot of them), and explained everything clearly to my satisfaction. When it was time for the job to start, the team dug everything out by hand, and worked 9.5 hour days, even on Saturday, to get the job done. There were a few things that I asked them to do that were not in scope for the job, and Mario and his team did them for me without charging extra. They cleaned up everything afterwards, and even came back to regrade the dirt around our house after it had settled. Since then our basement has been leak-free. I would highly recommended them to anyone looking to get their basement waterproofed.

We purchased an older home and had some environmental tests done. One of the tests was an asbestos air test, which came back as positive, with high levels of asbestos found in every floor of the house. Naturally we were really upset and freaked out. The environmental tester was going to come back the following week to look for bulk samples to take to find the source of asbestos, but we wanted for someone to look right away. I started to call other environmental testers, and to my surprise, found out that what the original tester failed to tell us was that the test he took did not actually find asbestos, but fibers in the air, which may or may not be asbestos, and that there is another test (a TEM test), that will specifically look for asbestos fibers. One of the several companies that told me this was Alan from AllMax Home Inspection - I went with him because he seemed pragmatic and knowledgeable, and offered a fair price for the test. He was able to come relatively quickly, and ran the tests for us, which came back negative to our relief. One thing we did find was asbestos wrapped around some of our ducts running up the walls, which he bulk tested (for a reasonable price as well). Based on the location of the asbestos, Alan recommended we seal it off since it would have been more costly and dangerous to remove. We had a remediator come in to get another opinion, and he recommended the same thing. Overall, Alan was very knowledgable, helpful, and was cost conscious in his recommendations for remediation. He even did a brief walk around of our house, pointing out things the home inspector missed at no additional charge. I would recommend him again.

Nev and his team went above and beyond their contractual obligations to ensure our job was done. We purchased an older home, and ran some environmental tests before moving in. The tests showed various molds in the basement including black mold, and we needed to get it remediated. Not only did Nev give us a fair price, but was also able to start quickly, and even threw in some extras for us at no charge, such as letting us use the fibelock paint to cover part of the subfloor of our second floor which we were renovating. After the remediation, the air tester retested, but did not like the levels of mold that were still in the basement. Nev came back at no additional charge as per his contract, and re-cleaned the basement, and promised to keep coming back until the tester was happy with the levels, no questions asked. Furthermore, we had discovered asbestos in our house, and Nev let us borrow his air scrubber at no additional charge until we could get further tests and remediation done. I would have given him a 10, but I took off one point only because he had to come back a few times until the environmental tester was happy with the post-remediation mold numbers. But the extra care, reponsiveness, and services he provided made up for this, and would definitely recommend and use him again.
