I highly recommend Steve Nradozzy. Please see the details below. You might find them interesting. I was looking for contractor to correct water damage in the basement. It was a minor flood in the basement due to rain that day. Sump stopped working that day. It was possible to make the sump pump to work again and in a few hours it removed all standing water in the basement. The large carpets in the basement remained soaked with water. I got in touch with about 8 contractors before I found Steven Nardozzi’s Rochester Environmental Company via Thumbtack service. Steven was the only contractor who replied to my request for water damage restoration publicized through Thumbtack. I could not choose any contractor from the eight which I was communicating with before Steve. One contractor offered partial help, not being able to deal with bacteria and mold aspects of the water damage. Another contractor promised an estimate for the damage and provided useful info during his estimate visit, but has not provided me with an estimate. The 3rd contractor was not able to answer my questions during his estimate visit. His company sent me the estimate, but was not willing to answer my questions about the estimate. The 4th contractor has answered my questions during estimate visit. He provided his estimate the next day. He was not willing to answer my questions about his estimate, and has informed that he has signed five contracts since he visited me. He informed me that he would not be able to serve me in a timely manner. The 5th contractor has answered my questions during his visit. He sent me his estimate the next day. He answered to many of my questions. However most of his answers are elusive and do not seem to me reasonable. The 6th contractor had no time to do the job. The 7th contractor was also very busy. The 8th contactor has promised me an estimate without seeing the basement. He has not sent one to me. I was pretty disappointed with the lack of adequate response to my request for water damage restoration in the basement. This is why I have telephoned Steve Nardozzi as soon as Thumbtack service has sent me Steven’s reply. We had a conversation where Steve provided concise and constructive answers to everything I asked him about. My first question to him was Does he actually do water damage restoration. I asked him this question as the name of his company sounded to general to me, Rochester Environmental Company. Steve said water damage restoration is exactly what he does for 15 years. He then rolled out his credentials in response. His credentials include graduating courses with IICRC and BPI. This has surprised me, since I have heard IICRC many times from other contractors, but NOT BPI. Our conversation may have lasted for at least 20 min, and I do not fully remember it. But in the course of it I asked Steve if he knows of a good way to protect my new sump pump. He replied to this by sending me an e-mail with the description pf the method the same day. However, the conversation went in such a constructive manner that I asked Steve, if he could the estimate the next day, Friday. He said he has an open slot at 10am. That is when we met. Steve gave me the estimate in about 30 min after he took the measurements and observed all of the basement. While observing the basement Steve was answering my questions and informing me about his restoration process. I have asked a few questions about some of the items in the estimate including if he would be able to start tomorrow, Saturday. He has checked something with his cell and said, yes he can start tomorrow. I gave him the job, because his figure was just $10 higher than one of the contractors which was no good in my opinion. We are in this project now 2 days. Demolition is and garbage removal is nearly done except cleaning the basement space. The drying and disinfecting processes are on automatic mostly by the machinery that Steve has set up in the basement. I am pretty the process will be fully complete in the next 3 days as everything Steve told has come to materialize. Steve has a steel trap focused mind and great sensitivity to all concerns of his customers. I do not see a competition for him as no Company I contacted has a business process as sound as that of Steve. Particularly, Steve’s communication with his potential customers and customers is top notch. I was in touch with 3 more contractors after I asked Steve to do the estimate. My opinion of Steve remains the same.

This was our first experience using a contractor that wasn't personally recommended or that we had worked with before. Brian was AWESOME from start to finish. Communication is key and he answered every email, call and text message immediately. The consultation was easy and painless - he explained everything he would be doing in detail, the time frame needed and approximate cost before he left the house. We had a ceiling repair, a few wall repairs, most of the interior and trim of the house painted, lights replaced, fans removed, and other small misc. items - I can't say enough about the professional meticulous job that was done! Extremely clean and organized. Absolutely stress free and completed in the time they estimated. It was so nice not to be put on the back burner or have someone "fit us in" during another job. AND my house is beautiful. We will be having Brian and his team back again - they're replacing all our doors and hardware - and who knows what else the future may bring.

Jesse is a true professional. He knows his trade very well and he provided great value in the design and construction of our HVAC system. He also did small repairs on other projects in a timely manner and was extremely efficient with his hours. His work is of the highest quality, he is a genuine person, and he is a strong moral character individual. I will recommend him to everyone.

I would like to say personally that I highly recommend MGM for HVAC solutions and installations. I have been using MGM services for a few years and have never encountered a problem. The quality of work is superior and the pricing is reasonable. A dedicated professional that will not create extra change orders that will cost the client unwanted expenses. Along with having a timely installation service, it is also efficient. I will continue to do business with MGM and have no hesitation to provide a recommendation for his services. thank you - Fortune Ventures LLC

I have never been happier with a professional heating and cooling expert. He was the utmost kind and caring gentlemen I have meet in the business. He did not recommend anything that did not need to be done. I would hire him 1000'S times again. Thank you for cleaning my furnace which since 1997 was maybe done a couple of times. I will see you in the spring for the central air.

The work Robb has done for us has been outstanding and better than expected. His use of creativity solving the problems of updating an older home, while preserving its vintage essence has been greatly appreciated. You just don't find craftsmanship like his very often these days. Robb is a trouble-shooter; if you would like something done, but don't know how it could be done, ask Robb. An example: after several HVAC companies told us the 100 year old "octopus" boiler couldn't be fixed and the removal & replacement costs would be $16,000 (and not in the budget!), Robb repaired the crack in the giant boiler quickly and affordably, at nominal cost. It continues to work dependably and efficiently, six years later. Thank you, Robb.

    I had done a total rehab to my home, and my hvac system was completly refine the RIGHT way by 585. The existing system was not pulling return air from the home but rather a hole the the floor. All my supply duct was uninsulated in a non conditioned part the the house, and ducts were all filled with and blowing dirt throughout my home. Eric from 585 diagnosed the problem and completely installed a whole new designed setup he did himself. My furnace now has plenty of return air, the supply is now blowing out stronger and warmer than ever and have been relocated to the correct areas of the home. My floors are now clean of dirt when the unit runs, my home is now comfortable and my heating bills have seen a significant drop in price. I couldn't be happier

    Kevin is a master at carpentry. Upon receiving my request, Kevin came to give me a walk through of the process that would be needed to be done and gave me an accurate price to get the job done. He is extremely down to earth and will get you the best price possible. On top of this, he will try to put measures in place so that if the problem arises again, you will know how to fix it on the cheap. Will be consulting with Kevin for other carpentry jobs in the future.

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    Who fixes furnaces?

    If your furnace needs to be repaired, you’ll want to find a qualified heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) repair technician. Each state has its own licensing requirements; some require all HVAC technicians to have an HVAC license, while others only require someone operating an HVAC service and installation company with employees to hold a contractor’s license. For example, in Alabama, the Alabama Board of Heating Air Conditioning, and Refrigeration Contractors regulates licensing, while in Kansas there is no state regulatory body and HVAC licensing can vary by region. For simple furnace repairs like changing out a filter, a trusted handyman can probably handle the job, but a trained professional should be hired for tasks like replacing a gas valve, installing a new inducer fan motor or other critical furnace repair jobs that involve dealing with gas leaks or other dangerous conditions. For more, check out our tips for smart hiring on Thumbtack.

    How often should you get your air ducts cleaned?

    How often you should clean your air ducts depends on your situation. If you or someone in the home has asthma or is acutely allergic to certain airborne materials or pollen, regular duct cleaning may be helpful. The Environmental Protection Agency doesn’t have an official position on the necessity of air duct cleaning unless the ducts have been contaminated by rodents, insects or mold, or you are aware of particles blowing out through the vents. The EPA recommends you have your air ducts cleaned on an as-needed basis. The National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA) suggests having air ducts cleaned every three to five years.

    Be cautious with companies that offer “whole house air duct cleaning,” urges the NADCA. The company may be using unscrupulous tactics to upsell you once they get started. Before any work begins, always clarify in writing what the job entails and what the cost will be. To protect yourself against fraud, read customer reviews and verify that your HVAC cleaning service has applicable licenses and certifications.

    What is an HVAC system?

    The letters in HVAC stand for heating, ventilation and air conditioning. An HVAC system enables you to regulate your home or building’s internal temperature (thermal control) for comfortable living and working. You can bring heat levels down in the summer and up in the winter, keeping your home or office livable year-round. HVAC systems can also help with humidity levels and regulate indoor air quality in a home or office. There are many types of HVAC systems and technologies available.

    Many homes have a forced-air HVAC system. Both the heating and the central air conditioning units share a ductwork system where they either push in or pull out warm or cooled air. There are also heating and cooling systems that don’t require ductwork — such as ductless mini-splits — but work on the same principles of heat exchange. The national average to hire an HVAC specialist is $2,920-$3,670, with costs varying depending on the work you need done and the equipment you are installing.

    Do you need to clean your air ducts?

    Air duct cleaning is done by heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) professionals. The pros use industrial-strength, truck-mounted vacuums and powerful brushes and hoses to clean inside the metal ducts that make up your forced air heating and cooling system. The Environmental Protection Agency recommends duct cleaning if there is “substantial visible mold growth inside hard surface ducts, ducts that are infested with vermin such as rodents or insects, or ducts that are clogged with excessive amounts of dust and debris and/or particles are actually released into the home from your supply registers.”

    You should also have air ducts cleaned after recent water contamination or water damage to prevent mold; after renovations or remodeling to ensure debris and dust didn’t settle in the vents and ducts; if you are having problems with allergies or asthma; or when you are moving into a newly purchased home, especially if the previous owners smoked or had pets. The National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA) recommends getting your air ducts cleaned every three to five years, or every two to three years in regions where homeowners use their air conditioning and heater for many months of the year, while the EPA suggests homeowners have duct cleaning done as needed.

    How much does it cost to get central air?

    Prices for central-air HVAC systems will vary. The national average to hire an HVAC specialist is $2,920-$3,670 but can run as high as $5,000 or even $12,000 depending on the capacity you need and other factors. Installing central air conditioning requires an entire system that works together to draw hot air out of your home. The system includes an outdoor unit, which houses the condenser and compressor, and the evaporator coils. If you don’t have an existing duct system, ductwork will need to be installed, which will affect labor and material costs. Leaking or damaged ducts will also need to be replaced.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
