Review by in Pittsburgh, PA
John is responsive and very easy to work with. His crew, led by Markus, were diligent, quick, polite, thorough, adept at their trade, took all proper safety precautions, and cleaned up well. Additionally, Markus took the time to show me and explain everything they found and repaired very well. The only reason I donâ t rate even higher, and may be my own doing, is Iâ m not sure the repaired damage was as significant as what was assumed in the estimate and I still paid the full contract amount. I should have asked.

John is a great contractor. He's quick to respond, and easy to work with. His team did a good job replacing my roof, and got it scheduled soon after first contacting them, even during a busy time. John stands by his work and made sure I was happy with the work, even after his team had left the house.

Family owned business which I like. John is always accessible and accommodating. We have had several projects done in the past by them. Each time, they are very professional, clean and always finish on or ahead of schedule. This last project, our driveway and walkway. Turned out awesome!!! It changed the whole look of our home.

They replaced four skylights in the living room. The installers were thoroughly professional and cleaned up well afterwards. The job was complete about a month ago, and no sign of leaks anywhere.

Review by in Pittsburgh, PA
At our first meeting, John prided himself on telling me about their family owned business and that they provide quality work and excellent customer service. The job I needed done involved replacing all of the gutters and downspouts at my home. The job was done in February 2018. Since the time of the installment, the gutter on the back of my home constantly drips on to my back patio. I informed John of this immediately. Here it is, October 2018, the problem still exists. I received a text on 10/27/18 stating the problem had been corrected only to come home to find a large piece of metal flashing shoved under my shingles supposedly to guide the water toward the gutter. Water going into the gutter was never the problem. The problem is that there is no downward pitch to the down spout. There was never a problem with water flowing to the gutter. However, it just lays there because there is no downward pitch to the gutter toward the down spout. When it rains now, the flashing shoots the water directly over the gutter on to my porch. I called John to speak with him about this and he had a terrible attitude and blamed it on my shingles. My shingles are not the problem, but rather a gutter that was installed with zero pitch therefore causing the water to lay in the gutter at the end cap and constantly drip on my porch. I sent pictures to John with a level showing that there is no pitch and he didn't even have the courtesy to respond. I completely understand that mistakes happen, but come back and fix the problem you created properly. There is no hope that John will come back to correct the installation error. John's response is to blame the roofer who installed my shingles. Mind you, I never had a drip prior to the installation of the new gutters. Blaming others for your error is very unflattering. You'd be much more respectable if you owned your installation error and came back to fix it properly. I am so disappointed. John himself never came to look at the problem but was quick to blame the roofer who installed the shingles 4 years ago. Again...never had a problem with water entering the gutter or dripping before the installation of the new gutters. Because of this, I would not recommend John Gentilcore for any project at your home. He is quick to collect your check, but will not return to fix his mistake.

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.

    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.
