Glenwood Construction
I googled for roofing companies near Forest hills , Queens. I saw reviews for Glenwood and called Glenwood Construction on 12/07/2013 around 9:30, A gentlemen by the name of Tahir answered the phone. Made a commitment to showing up between 2-3 PM same day. His crew was right on time, they went straight to work , identified the problem on the roof, located the leak and resolved the issue by putting flashing. After payment the lead person fixing the problem, I called Tahir to follow up to ensure that they stand by their work. I was very impressed . I was assured by Tahir that he stand by his work and he told me to call back if there was any problems. I would recommend this company,update : 12/09---- I still found water coming into my bedroom. Called Tahir after hours ( around 8:00 PM) he was very professional, pick up the phone after hours, told me he will talk to his staff and have somebody at my house on Wednesday 11/11 as tomorrow is a snow day.... After looking into the problem on my end , i found out that it was not the roof but the pipe inside my bedroom had a bad connection....Glenwood did the right thing by sealing the nails on my roof .... I must say that Glenwood stands behind their work and i will definitely do business with them again. God bless people like Tahir who inspite of running a business in an industry that is not reliable for the most part, address the customers needs and stand behind their work.

Dear Boris, First of all, let me wish you Shana Tovah. Second, I must thank you for the amazing job you did on our stairs! I hadn't imagined it being as beautiful as it is! It is hard for me to imagine that one person can look at the stairs, design something so beautiful, make it so perfectly, and install it without any problems! You did it all! And, George and I are absolutely thrilled with it! We had family here today, and everyone is amazed. We just cannot thank you enough. I also love what you did with the approach to the dock, and it will make all the difference. I am sure that George told you about one and only dunk in the lake (!) and you suggested that the other railing be used on the dock, itself. I think that will be great! And, it is a way to get you back here:) Why not come on a weekend with your girlfriend? We will all install the railing and then, have drinks and a nice dinner? Again, many, many thanks for an incredible job incredibly well done. laurie gilkes (and george maniscalco)

Amazing amazing and amazing!!! My husband and I came home from a weekend to find that our master bathroom and all the hardwood floors in our bedroom had been completely destroyed from water damage. Rafi and his Team from Kings Roofing & Construction came to our rescue! From the start they were extremely professional efficient honest and punctual. They showed us and our home a lot of respect. Our biggest concern was timing and quality as we needed our bathroom and bedroom completed asap. Although they worked long hours, my bathroom and flooring was complete within the promised 6 days. The final product speaks for itself!!! I could not have asked for anything more :)They were very polite, courteous, and professional. Their price was very fair so I paid them a little extra because they did more than I could have expected. I was so impressed with these quality young men that I will probably use them again to build a new block wall and pour a cement walkway.

Deluxe Improvement has done extensive work for our coop in clinton hill and took care of some old serious issues in our building, such as work on our cornice and roof, staircase repair, repointing, fixing the poor electrical wiring all over, painted the hallway, changed windows. They did it the right way, gave us all the insurances, required that we file for a permit, and took care of all the necessary filing and got all the approvals fast. Very easy to stay in touch with, always received quick email updates and responses. Shawn, our estimator gave us a  full walk-through to ensure satisfaction after job completion. We requested some minor touch ups in the hallway, which they fixed the following week. Everyone in the building was very happy with the work. If your looking for a hard working, reliable contracting company Deluxe Improvement is my number one choice.

Our sidewalk had a serious situation. We reviewed several companies and chose Glenwood Construction. We contacted Tahir and he came that afternoon. He spent time explaining to us what had to be done and spent time answering any questions we had. The workers came on time, knew what had to be done and began working immediately. Before they left the job site they made sure the site was clean, they even cleaned the wrought iron fence of cement splatter that appeared during the pouring of the cement. Tahir called us while the men were working to see if we were satisfied with how the work was proceeding. After the work was completed he called again asking if we were satisfied with the work and told us how to care for the new sidewalk.We are more than satisfied with Tahir, the workers and Glenwood Construction Company.

Rashida from Ideal is amazing. She helped us get a dream apartment in a beautiful well-maintained building exactly in the neighborhood we wanted to live in, and the entire process of working with her was simply wonderful. When we walked around Brooklyn with Rashida looking for an apartment, a number of people stopped her to say hello and to thank her for her work, and right then and there we knew that we had somehow managed to find the right realtor.Rashida went through great pains to understand EXACTLY what we were looking for in, and only showed us places that were an EXACT fit. AND they were all within our budget. She is honest, helpful, and all around a pleasure to work with. Hiring her to help you find your home in Brooklyn will be one of those decisions you pat yourself on the back for, for years to come.

My husband and I feel spoiled after working with Maria Vitagliano on our first home purchase. We had a difficult time finding an agent who would make our interests their number one priority. Maria was honest, incredibly knowledgable, friendly, efficient and completely understood where we were coming from and what we were trying to find. Maria was always on point and she never once showed disinterest in our schedules or desires. What really stood out is that Maria went the extra mile over and over again throughout us buying our home in Brooklyn. Maria referred us to an excellent home inspector, termite inspector, and a fantastic mortgage broker, and she expertly handled all of the logistics. Maria really helped minimize our stress, and we are extremely grateful.

I can't express how awesome my experience with Ari has been. As a student from outside of New York, I was pretty nervous getting into searching for an apartment, however, right from the beginning Ari was enthusiastic, and reassuring. He made sure I had all of my paperwork in line before viewing any apartments so no one's time would be wasted. The apartments he had lined up were all within my price range and exactly what I had in mind, he was also a pleasure to spend the day with! With the horror stories I heard from friends dealing with brokers, I am beyond thankful that I found Ari. We live in the apt already for several weeks and we love the place. Highly recommend Brookliv!

Bobby's Twins Contracting Inc
Bobby did an extensive remodeling job on my father in laws house in Gravesend. The house had not been touched since the 1950s and needed a lot of work. He gave a fair estimate and the finished job was beautiful.Another thing my husband and I appreciated is that Bobby treated my father in law with great respect and my FIL was old, ill and difficult to deal with. He had an opinion on everything and told Bobby's work men what her thought. The entire crew treated my FIL well and we were very pleased with them.The estimate was fair and the job well done. Bobby even did a few customr touches here and there which made the house look like something from a magazine.

Tips & Advices
In most states, contractors are required to have a license before taking a job. Some states also require registration. To be licensed, contractors must pass an exam and meet certain qualifications that prove he or she is a competent flooring contractor. Registration is simply a list of who will be performing a job.
The time it takes to install flooring depends on the type of flooring and the size of the room or rooms involved in the project. In one day, a typical contractor can usually install up to 2,000 square feet of carpet, 600 square feet of hardwood or laminate, or 400 square feet of tile or stone.
  • Do you have a professional license, insurance, and a business liability policy?
  • Who will work on the project?
  • Do you subcontract, and do you screen workers and have insurance policies to cover them?
  • Do you have references or examples of your work I can see?
  • Do you charge for an in-home estimate?
  • What type of flooring is best for my home in terms of architectural consistency, environmental influences (such as whether a certain type of flooring will be affected by humidity in my area), and durability?
Legally, insurance is not necessary, but it's a good idea for flooring contractors to have it. When hiring a flooring contractor, ask whether the business is insured. If it's not, consider that a red flag.
A flooring contractor should know the pros and cons of each flooring option. These might include pricing, time of installation, durability, and average lifespan of the material.
