    James did a great job on the window installation. They came out better than we expected and appear to make a difference in the basement temperature. James, and Josh, had to work under difficult conditions: weather, measurements, and the problems of an old house. James was a true problem solver and made the installation work. Very pleased with this team.

              I'd just like to say I appreciated the integrity displayed by Halco throughout this process. I initially had my worries that we were going to be sold on a lot of things we didn't need, but the first visit from George helped allay those fears. He pointed out aspects of the house we were not aware of as problems. Such as the bathroom fans venting into the attic, air circulation in the basement, issues with the dryer, and of course the leaking gas pipes. We were glad when the crew came out to fix these issues and more and also bring our insulation up to code. When George came out for the follow-up visit, he found that the gas pipes still had a minor leak, and I was impressed that Halco would double-check their work. Then the crew returned and they showed me how gas leaks are confirmed with that special fluid. Then I could actually see the bubble form and understand the process. That was useful for me to see. The crew then immediately redid the joint and we confirmed the seal was good. Then the guy gave me tips as he reignited the pilot on the water heater before they left. The ability to recognize, acknowledge and fix mistakes has become rare, and I am glad to see it exists at Halco.

              Good Morning Mr. Smith: Monday, May 24 thru Thursday, May 27 two of your employees, James S. and Josh B., installed a sump pump and dehumidifier in our crawl space and addressed mold issues. We want to let you know how pleased we were with the quality of work performed. James and Josh were very respectful of our home and the concerns we had all along the way. The decision to have this work done was costly and was not reached lightly; so to have two professional young men with their skills and courtesy put our minds at ease. Sean Hillson, the building analyst, was also very helpful and responsive to our calls and communication in a very timely manner.We feel comfortable that as time passes. if any concerns come up with the work performed, the team will follow through and make things right.

    Customer Testimonial

              Thank you for the work Halco did installing our geothermal furnace, basement waterproofing, and windows. The house is comfortable and it is wonderful not having to worry about mold or flooding in the basement. The duct work and furnace look like they have always been here rather than a retrofit. The Halco teams worked well together, from what I could tell, even when there was a scheduling overlap between the basement and furnace teams. I very much appreciate you coming to correct the water leakage around the geothermal line where it enters the basement. We have not noticed any problems since you were here. Please extend my thanks to everyone who worked on this project.
