    I greatly appreciate that each of the team introduced themselves when they arrived and asked if I needed to go out, just to make sure that their trucks wouldn't be in my way. First impressions count and the fact that they were polite and considerate put me right at ease-any mom would be proud of them!

    Joe V was an excellent project manager directing and advising a team of 3 while he completed his own tasks. I especially appreciated that throughout the 2 1/2 days of work the team would check in with me to tell me the status of the work and answer any questions I had.

    Customer Testimonial

              Hal, I know that Joe had left a satisfaction survey with me at the end of the job, but I wanted to reach out to you more personally to let you know what a great representative you have in Joe Velte. He and his crew were both knowledgeable an professional in their approach to the work performed on our home. Joe "set the tone" as far as how his crew approached the job and they were both thorough and careful as they made their way around the house sealing areas that were "leaking". Joe was understanding and had an appreciation for the cosmetics of the job he was doing and assured me of that by his words and actions. I am anxious to see what the followup test shows in the way of mitigation, but Joe had let me know that there was a significant reduction in the volume of outside air infiltration in our home. Thank you for your efforts and Thanks to Joe and his crew for a job well done. Rodger Lewis

    Customer Testimonial

              We are extremely pleased with all phases of the project. Bill Szabo did a superb job in planning and organizing the project. Bill's and Vince Graham's assessment was very thorough and high professional. The work was completed in a timely and thorough manner by highly skilled and well-supervised crews. All members of the work crews were very courteous and available for answering questions throughout the project. To be honest, we are not accustomed to such a high level of professionalism from many of the contractors we have dealt with over the years. We are indeed impressed.The follow-up by Bill after completion of the work was excellent. Please pass onto Bill, Mike, Dave, and everyone else who worked the project our sincere thanks for a job well done. We couldn't be more pleased.

  • Steam Boiler Replacement in Genoa, NY
    Before
    Steam Boiler Replacement in Genoa, NY
    After

    This 1930's, cast-iron steam boiler had been running so inefficiently that these Genoa, NY homeowners were forced to use 4 additional space heaters just to maintain an adequate level of comfort throughout their 1900 sq. ft. house during the winter. We took out the boiler and the existing fuel oil tank and replaced it with this new Williamson high-efficiency, LP gas-fired steam boiler.  By combining this with several insulation and air-sealing measures that we performed throughout the home, they no longer have to worry about relying on multiple space heaters to be comfortable in the winter time.  But more importantly, they are expected to see a savings of around 30% on their energy bills!

  • Attic Spray Foam Insulation for Weedsport, NY Home
    Before
    Attic Spray Foam Insulation for Weedsport, NY Home
    After

    This customer had just moved into their home about a year ago and immediately began to feel the discomfort of extreme draftiness... and the subsequent high energy bills.  Our Energy Adviser performed an audit on the home and found that the primary issue was a lack of attic insulation in this Weedsport, NY home.  To solve this, we applied 6" of open-cell spray foam insulation all along the attic slopes.  The results were staggering!  Our initial blower door reading, prior to the work, with the attic door open was 6200 CFM50.  Afterwards, it tested out at 3000 CFM50 with the attic door AND the basement door open--that's an efficiency increase of over 50%!
