I had a really bad back up in by basement bathroom and of course began panicking. Jason contacted me and was at my house just a few hours later and got to work right away. From the second I met him outside, I felt like everything would be ok. From his calm demeanor, and knowledgeable questions I knew I was in the right hands. Jason worked for HOURS trying to unclog the persistent and stubborn clog but was only able to clear it up slightly all due to an idiot contractor I hired in the past. After more hours of working his butt off he kindly suggested I call a sewer specialist as this was too much for a plumber. I asked him how much I owed him and although I don't recall if he said "nothing" or half of the quoted, I gave him the full amount of his original quote because I KNOW he did his best. I will not be calling ANYONE else for future plumbing projects in my house

I didn't have an opportunity to use Jason's services, as the situation was resolved. However, we communicated on several occasions. He was attentive, responsive and more than fair with his pricing. I have included him in my arsenal of contractors and whenever the need arises, I plan to call Berry's Home Improvement.

The Tech from Service Guys arrived at our home early on a Saturday morning, just as we had requested. He explained how he would make the repairs and got to work right away. We were disappointed with the resealing of a sink drain. The finished project looked sloppy and messy. We could have done that ourselves, but we hired a professional thinking he would do a better job than us. The other projects (fixing a broken kitchen drawer, installing a drawer pull, and hanging two kitchen shelves) were done quickly and to our satisfaction. We only wish the resealed drain was cleaner, but otherwise we are glad we hired the Service Guys.

I highly recommend Celtic Piping and Heating. Edward got back to me quickly with an online quote while many other plumbers or contractors refuse to provide even a ballpark estimate without seeing the project. (Translation: it's harder to refuse when someone is standing in your apartment ready to work even if the price is outrageous!) Edward called me back within 30 minutes to arrange for a time and arrived promptly... on a Saturday, no less! I had failed to mention that I needed a drain installed in addition to two faucets and that wasn't a problem for him. He clearly knows what he is doing and my kitchen and bathroom now have a much more updated look thanks to his efforts. Edward is a true professional and he clearly takes pride in what he does. He left me with his card in case there were any problems as he guarantees his work. I don't think that I'll be needing it... until I have another project, that is! Terrific!

We had a perpetual flooding problem of our basement during the flash floods of the rainy season, which now runs from April to November with climate change. Ed was the one contractor who truly understood the flooding situation of our basement and provided a viable solution. For a contractor, he was courteous, professional, neat, cleaned up well after the job and was done ahead of schedule. Very good, solid work. We highly recommend!

I am an absentee landlord and needed a new water heater for a house in Sunnyside. Clear and timely communication is very important for me when hiring contractors. Edward responded to my calls very quickly, gave me complete information and arranged appointments with my tenant to bid and then perform the job. He used top quality materials and did a great job at a fair price. I will use him again for my plumbing needs.

I contacted Manuel after reading the positive comments by many satisfied consumers. I must admit I was hesitant at first , since the re-grouting kitchen floor project was attempted twice by two different contractors and both were a complete disaster . The first contractors used a white epoxy filler which looked as if someone smeared toothpaste all over the floor which later hardened to a cement like finish. The second contractor tried to cut out the epoxy and regroute with sanded grout which made the floors look worse since both gouts were visible and the sanded grout was overfilled between the tiles. He also informed me the floors were beyond repairs and I should cut my losses and buy new flooring. Since so much money was invested in these beautiful tiles , I decided to give it once last shot. I came across several contractors who responded to my initial inquiry but MANUEL WAS THE ONLY PERSON TO RESPOND TO MY IMMEADIATE CONCERNS WITHOUT MENTIONING HIS PRICES FIRST. I was very honest with him in terms of the likelihood the tiles could be salvaged. He requested photos of the floor so he could get a better idea of the scope of work and responded adamantly " I CAN FIX IT AND YOU WILL SEE THE DIFFERENCE !! He came out to assess the job 1 week prior to confirmed scheduled appt. He told me the job would take two days - one day to remove old grout and one day to refill grout snd seal. I was skeptical but decided to take a chance out of sheer desperation and frustration. Now for the outcome. MY FLOORS ARE STUNNINGLY BEAUTIFUL. I can not believe it! They look almost as new as the day they were installed - AMAZING!! I don't know how he did it but this man is talented and skilled and you can not beat his price!! He said he was going to leave at 5 pm but stayed later to ensure the floor was perfect and to my satisfaction. This is my Contractor for " LIFE". I have several projects that need to be completed after this and will ONLY use Manuel .

I had two tubs in adjacent bathrooms with faulty faucets, which leaked and were very hard to open and close. Two prior plumbers had tried to fix this, neither had done it well. The second had said I needed to replace the entire assemblies. Also I had noticed a leak from the upstairs neighbor which seemed to be from his tub drain. The same plumber had said he would have to replace the entire tub drain assembly. Also they would have had to break the tile and I would have had to find someone else to do the new tile work. Manuel gave me a good quote, he had good reviews, and he could do both the plumbing and the tile, so I decided to try him out. I could not be happier! First, he told me he had to come out for a quote, and he came at the exact time he said he would (that's a first for any contractor in my experience). He gave me a reasonable quote, and was able to start the two-day project only a few days later. He came as promised on a Friday and Saturday. After carefully cutting the tile out of the wall in the first bathroom, he started to explore the situation and soon realized that there was no real need to replace the entire assembly, but instead suggested replacing all the gaskets, and in some cases replace the bodies of individual faucets when they were in bad shape. He said there really had been no reason to cut a hole in the wall, but at least we got to check inside to make sure there were no other problems. He also cut into the ceiling and found where my neighbor's tub was leaking. In the end because he did not need to do as much work he ended up fixing both sets of tub faucets AND the upstairs leak for slightly less than he had quoted me for the tubs alone. And he was able to put the original tile back - you'd never know it had been taken out. The next time I need anything done, I will be calling Manuel for sure!

First and foremost, Manuel offers the best bang for your buck. I received bids from 4-5 other contractors - you can't beat his price. I've been living in my apartment for over 5 years and the shower tile was getting moldy. It now looks brand new! Manuel was very quick to respond and was able to do the job with only a few days notice. Talk about quality service! If I ever need more work down in my apartment, Manuel will be at the top of the list.

Ozeas did an incredible job! The job involved creating an opening in a wall for a fridge, building a platform to level the fridge and moving an outlet. He also retrofitted two cabinets to hold a dishwasher, fixed the plumbing, installing hot and cold shut-off valves, and wired the dishwasher directly to the basement. In each job he went above and beyond! Doing beautiful framing on the fridge opening, for example. He also built a lip on the platform so we couldn't accidentally push the fridge off, something I didn't even consider. For the dishwasher, he went above and beyond to build us shelves with the existing dead space, which was extra work he volunteered to do. Another thing we've become used to is contractors leaving our home an absolute mess. Ozeas made a point of cleaning each day, even after a 12-hour day when he was coming back the very next day. Ozeas also kept all the receipts for materials and made a point of returning $50 worth of stuff he didn't use, passing those savings onto us. Everything he opened but didn't finish he left with us for future jobs. I could not be happier. We just purchased an old home and it has been difficult and stressful finding someone we could trust. (One "carpenter" even refused to do these jobs, telling us they were stupid. He told me if I wanted a dishwasher, here was a dishwasher- and put his hands in my face.) Now I don't have to deal with rushing home from work to meet people like this for "estimates." We will look no further than Ozeas!

Ozeas helped out with a number of jobs in my apartment, including installing a microwave above the stove and shaving down doors. Ozeas was always on time. His prices were fair, and he does great work. He's also very personable. What impressed me most was his a work ethic: He's very eager and want to exceed expectations. He also cleans up the space he works in, something that many contractors neglect to do. I will definitely be using his services again in the future, and I suggest you do too!

I want to thank Darin Sliker for all of the help he provided for me and my mother. I live in the state of Va. and my mother lived in N.J. I had been trying to secure a contractor for repairs that were needed in her tenants bathroom. My mother is 85 yrs. young and needless to say she did not know who to contact for this job. So after trying several contractors, a cousin of mine suggested I go online to "Thumbtacks.com and the rest is history! Darin was very friendly, helpful and very informative. He didn't mind me calling, texting or emailing him at any time. That meant so much considering I live out of state. The work that was done to the bathroom was great and I will always be grateful to Darin and those who worked with him on this project!

We used Smith Plumbing twice already. Once they did a full bathroom renovation. What made them different from the other contractors we hired before, is that they payed full attention to all details, giving us options of how else we could do other then our original plan. Second time we had a licking problem in the kitchen. They were prompt, quick and fixed the issue within an hour. I would highly recommend. Thank you!

We hires Leo to seal our roof which was leaking. I believe the quote was a little higher than we expected, but we accepted and signed the contract since he could get the work done quickly (next day). His card said something about price match guarantee, so I guess if we had taken our time to get more quotes we might have been able to get a better deal. His quote was only to seal around a leaky vent pipe. Once he got on the roof to do the job he believed the leak was actually coming the seal around the edges of the roof. He sealed the all the edges of our roof in addition to the vent pipe for the same price. So in the end I believe it was a good value since he did a lot more work for the same price. He showed me before and after picture of all his work to ensure we were satisfied. He also guaranteed his work for 6 months. He never really showed up on time. However, he did keep in contact via text messages to let us know he was running late and provided up with updated times to expect him. I have never hired a contractor before, so I don't know how normal this is or not.

Leo and his team helped me out with a new roof due after the snow storm last week. They assessed the situation immediately and understood the urgency of a damaged roof with elderly people living in my home. He replied to my numerous text immediately and made sure I understood point by point what he was doing and why it needed to be done. I fell 100% satisfied with his work and professionalism.

Fabian did a great job. He responded very quickly to my questions and was readily available to answer questions. I needed to replace old outlets as well as install new outlets, dimmers and switches for the kitchen and bathroom before rhe Some of the boxes were old and needed to be moved or replaced for the install of new cabinets. He seamlessly made the changes and advised on how the outlets would appear once the backsplash was in. He had cost effective fixes to problems with the old boxes which i had chosen not to replace completely. He was also able to fix some recessed lights that had been sloppily installed by a previous contractor. He was knowledgeable and understood his trade as well as being honest about what i needed to do to have my outlets upgraded. I will be asking him back to complete the electric install of the appliances once the cabinets are in as well.

My experience with contractors, including this company, is that you have to have patience. When a job has multiple areas of concentration (electrical, plumbing, carpentry, etc.), there may be different people doing each service; which means that everything is dependent upon each person doing their service in a timely manner, otherwise possible delays. Also, most contractors have multiple job sites where their people are rotated where needed. Since no one can predict a problem will occur, this also causes delays in getting a project completed. All of this is the nature of the job. As I mentioned before, try to have patience. Renovation projects can be frustrating and sometimes upsetting; but if everything is done correctly with minimal errors, the most important thing is that you are happy with the skills provided and the quality of the work completed.

I was very happy and pleased about my new kitchen. This was a job well done. Global Housing is a great company and I highly recommend them. James and his team were on point with measurements & everything required for my kitchen. I interviewed 5 contractors and what was most impressive was the time he took with me, to listen with patience and understand everything I wanted to make my kitchen look great. He even stayed within my budget. His professionalism was great, even from the minute he put on his booties to step in the house. During the process, James makes sure the customer is happy and aims to please. So if you want a good and professional contractor, Global Housing is the way to go.

My floors presented a challenge as they were badly damaged with staining and paint the full home In only 4 days shoodi transformed my flooring to looking brand new once again and pants results was very good. His technique provided me with many pros: reasonably priced, no need to move out of my home as his products are non-toxic ( a plus if you have pets or children ), the convenience of no sand or dust clean-up. Shoodi and his co-worker naveed were at all times polite, professional, and always on time as scheduled. They also meticulously moved all of my furniture back in place once the job was completed. An added bonus is their office manager ahmad who was a pleasure to deal with.

As homeowners, one of the most difficult decisions we make is selecting a contractor to perform work at our home. We meet many contractors in our search. We do our best to evaluate each contractor that we meet for quality, knowledge, reputation, price, etc. but we recognize that we are not experts in any of these areas. Over the past 20 years of owning a home in Paramus, NJ, we have selected many contractors for a variety of large projects; Fencing (2), Deck; Landscaping, Irrigation, Swimming Pool, Shed, Patio, Additions (2), Roofing, Siding, Gutters, Pavers, Hardscape, Water Feature, Cabana/Shed. Looking back, some of or contractor selections have been poor at best. They have left us dreading to start the process for another project. Many, on the other hand, have been satisfactory therefore restoring our confidence in my ability to get through the selection process. Then, there are a select few that have exceed our expectations. The funny part is we knew, as soon as we met them, that they would. When you were outlining your project to them, they were professional, attentive to your needs and truly showed interest. They offered ideas for enhancements, not alternatives, to what you were looking for. They offered a fair price for the work to be performed as compared to the others you received. Building Paradise is one of these select few. Olman and his crew, exceeded our expectations at every level from design, to workmanship, to clean-up. Our project was to replace a 15 year old shed with a Cabana/Shed combination. While still needing a small portion for shed storage, we were looking for a private Cabana for our poolside guests to be able to change to/from their swimming attire that incorporates seating, towel storage, with separate cubbies to for multiple guests to store shoes, clothing and personal belongings. We wanted it to have complete privacy and also be elegant enough that our guests would want to use it. From the sliding glass door entry, to the tile floor, to the contrast painting, to the rustic pine ceiling with a lighted ceiling fan as an enhancements that Olman offered, the finished project well exceeded our expectations. Each and every one of our guests compliments the Cabana and I am proud to personally recommend Building Paradise Home Remodeling LLC. I might also add that we have used Olman and his crew on additional projects in 2016 and expect to call upon their services again in 2017.

We hired Building Paradise to install all of the black oak cabinets in our kitchen. What a beautiful and meticulous job. We have an old house and being handy homeowners who have ourselves installed a bathroom, tiled, etc., know all too well how difficult it is to work with a room and walls that are not square and a floor that is not level. Building Paradise's workmanship and attention to detail was incredible, making up for our house's quirks to ensure a perfectly level and completely secured kitchen. We highly, highly recommend this company. Not only is the work top-notch, the owner as well as his workers are professional, sincere, and extremely nice to deal with, the prices are fair, and, last but not least, the work is done when promised. As this is a full-service contracting company, we will definitely be utilizing its services again and again for many years to come.

This contractor is excellent and pays attention to every detail. They installed a custom railing on the stairs in my backyard. It was not an easy job, given the layout of the stairs and associated area. The contractor has all the tools necessary to customize the job for your particular needs and does it at a reasonable price. They do the job as if it were their house they were working on. Also, they were punctual (on time) and cleaned up after they completed the job. Hard to find good contractors these days. This contractor knows his job and knows how to treat a customer.

I cannot say enough great things about the craftsmanship and professionalism of the work performed by ER. The team was responsible for creating my new kitchen, bathroom, and restructuring several damage rooms in my home due to a water pipe break from the 2nd flood. From the initial consultation to the completed project, the team worked quickly, cleaned up after every visit, was courteous and professional, and addressed my concerns immediately. My particular project required a general contractor to coordinate the installation, as well as a plumber, an electrician, a tile installer, and a cabinet installation crew. Erick managed the whole project and I needed a person who I could count on since the damage home was out of stated for me. The finished project exceeded my expectations as well as my new tenants.

I had a terrible experience with my first contractor, so dealing with Erik was like a breath of fresh air. He showed up on TIME every day. He was reasonable in terms of prices, and he is a straight shooter. He does quality work, and if a mistake is made he takes responsibility and fixes it. If you call him, he almost always gets back to you right away. The other things that I really like about him that differentiates him from other contractors is that he does most of the work himself and he is HONEST. So if you're looking for a great contractor and great person to deal with, pick up the phone and call him NOW

I came to Thumbtack in hopes of finding a contractor who could finish my bathroom renovations since my previous contractor never finished. ER homes responded to my project and was able to start and finish the job the same exact week as promised. Erik even came the day of a blizzard and worked throughout the day to make sure my bathroom was be completed on time. I was so satisfied with his service that I am already discussing my next project with him.

John assisted me with a clients apartment. I am a real estate agent and her apartment had a lot of open spaces were unfortunately roaches were able to enter it. I contacted John in the morning and within a few minutes he responded to my inquiry. I explained the situation and he is assured me that the job would be addressed appropriately. The vast majority of the other contractors/handyman that I contacted through Thumbtack/handy/etc took hours and some even a full day to respond to my request. John was very thorough and made me feel confident with my decision to hire him. The client is pleased with his work and I will be using him in the future. Thanks Daniel

What our customers say... Let me start off by saying S&A Contracting is officially apart of my family. There will be no other contractor I prefer over them. I have been very satisfied with my contractor and their attention and cooperation from the very start. They have been employed by my family and myself for over three years now and we cannot wait to get more work done around the house.they have been great in understanding what i needed and were proactive in recommending resolutions. For example, from picking out paint colors to installing modern sinks, S&A Contracting is proactive in researching designs to fit the needs of the customers likes and wants. They have been very good at follow-ups and supporting me when i was in need of fast fixes around the house. Simply put, they are just a phone call away. From gutting my basement and turning it into a two bedroom luxury apartment to adding a garage door and installing a new back-splash to my kitchen, they are nothing short of amazing work and can do anything. My family and friends were so impressed with the work they have done that many contracts are scheduled next, and I do not expect anything but the best results. It has been very positive experience.  ​ YOU WILL BE PLEASED!!!!!! Book Now ​ Bronwen C. and family  09/01/16

We highly recommend S&A Contracting for house renovations. From our first phone call Stephon arranged a time to visit us for an estimate. We were updating our bathroom fixtures and needed wallpaper removed from a bedroom with plaster walls and then painted. His estimate was the exact price we paid. Stephon treats your home as if it is his home. His work area was cleaned up each evening and Stephon’s work was professional in every way. Our home is over 100 years old, Stephon was able to smooth the plaster walls and adjust the new bathroom vanity to a level position. Stephon has all the characteristics we look for in a contractor; professionalism, quality of workmanship and great communication skills! We will continue to welcome S&A Contracting to continue updating our home! ​ Anne & Perry Polhemus 06/27/16 Midland Park, NJ
