Review by Genaro B. in Montgomery, NY
Project: Repair Brick or Stone Flatwork
Horrible customer service: Gerard was very unprofessional on several levels. First, he seemed upset that I didn't select his proposal for a 2nd project (deck repair), even though we had opted to use him for the walkway/stairs project (most costly bid). On both projects his price was more than double what we had budgeted based on other contractor's free estimates. Second, when I contacted him about an issue with the walkway/steps project, I never received any calls, like when the project was being sold, just emails. In the course of a couple emails, Gerard devolved into name calling - twice, and was overall belligerent. We would not hire him again.
Response by Gerard McCluskey Landscape Design: 32- 5 STAR RATINGS, 4-STAR RATINGS OVER 4 YEARS. 4.74 OVERALL! QUALITY, VALUE, CUSTOMER SERVICE This is not the typical experience of most of our customers. I stand on the record here of all the other satisfied and enthusiastic experiences my customers have had. As a customer service professional, I go to great lengths to ensure a satisfactory experience for all of my customers. Unfortunately, in this case, no matter what we tried to do to appease the customer our efforts failed.

Gerard was a very professional business man and his knowledge of things is well known and response to getting back to customers is great . One thing I love about Gerard is the way he explains things to the customerhe is in the process of doing another job for me right now my deck and I'm sure it's going to come out wonderful.

Gerard is a very personal businessman. Took a while to line up the work, but it was clear he knew his business and once scheduled it was done on time in a very professional manner. I'd definitely use him again.

Gerard is a real professional. He was very helpful and communicative before the job while we were still deciding what to do. The work is beautiful and the prices are fair. We have already hired him for additional projects.

We had a bluestone walkway installed in August 2013. By the following spring there were a couple of areas where the mortar had eroded away. Since this job came with a two year warranty I called Mr. McCluskey so that he could remedy the situation. After leaving several messages on his answering machine which he didn't respond to I finally was able to get him on the phone. I explained calmly that I would like him to please honor his warranty. Instead of discussing the problem he got belligerent and hung up on me. I then contacted my local attorney general's office to see if they could get him to comply but as far as I know he never responded to them either. As a result I now have to hire someone else to correct this problem before it gets worse. As a result of this non-existent customer service I would not recommend him to anyone.
Response by Gerard McCluskey Landscape Design: Thank you Roberta! You have been wonderful to work for and it is our pleasure! Thank you for the updated review r I berta. It is completely false by the way which is why the AG isn't interested. We returned several of your calls. Answered your questions, handled your complaints AND made 2 return visits to your project to handle additional mortaring, which wasn't even failing. We do our utmost to satisfy our customer hence all of our other positive ratings. Incidentally, not following care instructions usually voids a warranty, but in your case I still took the time.

The Hudson Valley Contractors Unlimited contacted me immediately and came out to see and price the job. The workers were here about four hours repairing and repointing the brick risers of the front steps. They did a good job cleaning up. I would recommend this company!

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.
