Review by Marlon T. in Hyde Park, MA
Project: Remodel a Basement
We met and eventually hired them to create a bathroom in our basement. He provided a quote which we were comfortable with based on items we discussed over emails (sent pictures, talked about details, the whole 9). We signed the contract, paid the first 40% and work began shortly after. At the beginning I asked for transparency into all costs so to mange expectations and cost and he was uncomfortable sharing that. I should have took that as a red flag but we push forward with the project. We paid the second installment on time and without question even though the work was moving slowly. The items identified for us to purchase were bought and delivered on time. We asked multiple times with regards to the bathroom build if anything else was needed from us to purchase beside tiles, vanity, toilet and fan and consistently heard no. When it was all said and done, the project went over schedule and incomplete - didnâ t install shower door, baseboards missing and not prepped for painting (which we agreed to do), construction trash left in our back yard for us to dispose of because he had to send the dumpster back. He had to rent a tool and per the contract, we are to be notified ahead of incurring the expense. He called after he had already rented it but we agreed to pay for it anyways. The night before the last install was due, we noticed that the ejector pump for all the poop was leaking into our basement â a big no-no. I immediately sent him a text and he showed up late with tape and tighten a pipe. At that point he also presented us with a list of other expenses that increased our last balance by 63%. Due to the fact that the ejector was leaking into our basement and other costs, that we were supposed to be notified of ahead of time per the contract w/ receipts, we were not comfortable paying him and mutually agreed to wait one week to ensure the ejector was no longer leaking and review the additionally expenses to send back comments. We sent comments back on all the additionally expenses, asked for receipts as the contract stated he would provide and the guy got nasty and started adding all kinds of other things to the final tab â there were four iterations of the final bill, all increasing. He called, left messages about he needed his money and threaten legal, so we hired a lawyer based on the choices he provided to review our situation as we were no longer comfortable talking to him. Our lawyer reached out and it took several days for him to respond. In his response, receipt were still missing and others seemed fabricated. We wanted to be done with this as his response didnâ t provide anything new so my wife and I sent him a check containing his final 20% and other cost we agreed upon/what was proven. The guy cashed our check and is now taking us to small claims court for things that have no backing â I ll let you know how this ends when we head to court.

Felipe from Silva is a knowledgeable and highly skilled carpenter and contractor. The quality of work he is providing is far superior to any of the contractors I have hired in the past on similar projects. The deck we requested was 22” by 22” raising over 12” from the ground. Felipe guided us during design, material selection and project cost optimization. He build a deck according to all best practices with perfectly sized beams, attached with proper brackets and screws to cement footings. He managed the whole including obtaining all necessary permits. His attention to detail and esthetic designs was very impressive. He not only works during the sales process, but he also does the work.

I’m very pleased with the building/repair of my deck done by Silva Carpentry Services. The workmanship is excellent, the crew is very knowledgeable, providing me with invaluable suggestions for improvements during the construction. I have admired the company’s fairness in pricing where all the expenses were itemized and justified. I recommend Silva Carpentry Services for deck building/repair with Azek without hesitation.

This is my first time using homeadviosr and I am very satisfied with the service that I received from Felipe/ Silva Carpentry. Felipe is personable, knowledgeable, dependable and easy to work with. He quickly and accurately sized up the scope of my job which included various deck repairs, trim work, and the installation of an interior rail. Half way through the job, we realized that additional repairs were needed and he was very fair with the up charge. Felipe completed the job on time and on budget. He is exceptionally neat which is a rare trait in this field. I will certainly use Silva Carpentry in the future.

I would highly recommend Silva Construction. Felipe was punctual, neat, always cleaned up after working. I thought he did high-quality work for a reasonable price. When he started a job he completed it on time. He is personable and easy to talk to and was always available to discuss the work he was performing. He rebuilt my deck, sanded and repainted my Garden railing. He also did work in my garage. very handy and dependable.

Excellent job!! Could not have been more pleased with how the project went. Job was to replace decking boards and stairs (needed to be rebuild) with Azek and install cable railings . Finished product "Amazing" Felipe is very professional and in spite of being very meticulous the project came in on time and on budget. Will have him back for a couple future projects in the spring. Would highly recommend Felipe for any work you may need done.

I wanted to add to my previous review of 9/18 that the project is now completed after 2 weeks delay due to weather. The deck has been completely replaced, power washed and painted. The tool shed was power washed and painted. Everything looks great. The work was done very well and Filipe was wonderful to work with. I would have him again for more projects and have recommended him to other friends and neighbors.

I had new outdoor stairs and landing replaced and the back deck painted. Felipe arrived on time for the estimate and is very professional and thorough. He took the time to sand and prep the areas and left everything clean when he left. I will definitely hire Silva Carpentry services again.
