Review by in Danbury, CT
So I hired these guys several years ago to do a major storm repair. I'm selling my house and come to find out not ONE SINGLE PERMIT was pulled for the job and on top of that, someone at Solimine had the nerve to tell my realtor that we asked them NOT TO! DO NOT USE THESE PEOPLE UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES!
Response by Solimine Contracting, LLC: With all due respect to this gentleman's review and comment, we do not even have records of this job because it was at least 7 years ago. If permits were not pulled, we would have to assume it was because it was not needed. The gentleman is mistaken to what was said to his realtor. Unfortunately the Homeowner never called us himself, as we would have been more than happy to discuss it with him in more detail. We informed his realtor of how long ago work was done (she was under the impression it was a a couple years), and that if permits were not pulled the homeowner would have been aware of that.. We do not hide any information from homeowners when doing work for them at all. If our memory serves us correctly, this was also a project that went through the homeowners insurance; which when that happens, they require the proper guidelines to ensure work was done properly.

Review by in Newtown, CT
Our "two week" bathroom remodel was finally completed after eight weeks. As other reviews have stated, communications is one of the weaknesses of Solimine. Numerous time we were told that someone would be at the house to do work. We left the house unlocked, and no one showed up and without explanation. We did later found out why, Our sales rep told us, "Sorry this is taking longer than we expected. We have a major kitchen project that we have to get completed by Thanksgiving because they are having a large family get together". There were times when management did talk to us about what was going to be done, and then the workers showed up knowing nothing about it. Example, one morning the sales rep called to have a worker stop by to install bathroom accessories that afternoon. We told him not to worry about it, we didn't know if we wanted them or not. That afternoon, the worker showed up anyway while someone was taking a nap in the bedroom. We also had instances where we pointed out potential problems with what they were constructing and were told "we do this all the time, we know what we are doing." One of the issues was the size of the bench they built in the shower. It hung over the curb for the shower door so there was no way for the sliding barn door to slide. We told them there was going to be problem, but they said it was correct. When they discovered it wasn't, their initial solution was a $4,000 custom shower door! We suggested a fix and they did do the work at no charge. Final price installed was $1,000. One other example was, while painting, we asked them why they weren't taking down the old light fixture since the new one was a smaller size and was going higher on the wall. Again, the response was "we know what we are doing". The new light was installed. During "final walk" through, we found a minor problem with the mirror they built for us. When the mirror was removed, there was the unpainted section where the old light was, with a hole in the wall. We would have been stuck with an unpainted , hole in the wall section of the bathroom if the problem with mirror hadn't occurred. This is one last example of communications and priorities. Several times, when no one showed up as scheduled throughout the project, we were told the delay was caused by "the painters can't paint because we have to wait two or three days for the drywall compound to dry." Magically, when the sales rep. started pushing to get their final check, and found the "hole in the wall" when they thought they were done, time requirements changed. The painter showed up (three days after promised), patched the large hole with drywall compound, painted the hole and old light section, and was gone in an hour. One suggestion is have firm prices, either purchasing yourself or going through Solimine for everything you need before signing the contract. We found their allowances in the contract were way too low, especially when you add the 20% mark up on anything you purchase through them. Bottom line, Solimine is a company with very good workers, who at the end, got the job done. They never charged us for their mistakes, which we appreciated and respected. It's a shame management didn't communicate better and didn't give us the high priority they promised. We are planning on an add-on screened in porch and deck in the spring. We were hoping to use Solimine for that project as well. After our overall experience, on what the sales rep. called a "small bathroom project, the aggravation we went through is not worth repeating. Sadly, we will be looking for a new contractor.
Response by Solimine Contracting, LLC: First and foremost, we are sorry the homeowner has such ill feelings towards our company. We know this project did not turn out as we both planned, but we believe we did everything in our power to make the homeowner happy. We agree that the 2 week project turned into 8. We were on track to be completed in 3 weeks when there became a price issue with the cost of the shower door; which was an allowance item, and not associated with a problem we caused. Solimine Contracting set aside a $2,000 allowance for the shower door in our contract. The homeowner is also correct, that we do add a 20% charge to all allowance items. This charge is to cover the shopping times spent with the homeowner to pick out materials, as well as ordering and delivery, and the responsibility and functionality of the item. We do give homeowners an option to buy materials direct if they choose to agree to all of the above. Once work began, it was decided that the shower was going to be slightly larger than originally discussed. We'd like to include that the homeowner wanted a custom barn style door. We received the quote form the first company, which came over budget and the homeowner was not happy , nor accepting of that option. From 10/13 to 10/25, there was constant communication including a 2nd quote we provided by another company for the shower door, which put a halt to the project. The 2nd quote was not accepted either. There was also a 3 day period where we were trying to contact them to resolve the issue, to which we did not hear back from them. We finally came up with a solution, and the homeowner ordered a shower door on their own around 10/25 which took about a week to come in, and we provided additional work to the bench seat at no charge to properly install the decided shower door. We apologize that we did not realize that the original door was going to be far over the allowance amount, and that the homeowner thought we were originally installing the system ourselves. We did explain to them immediately that we normally refer to a glass company to fabricate and install the shower door portion of the project, but if that was not communicated properly, we do apologize. In the end, Solimine Contracting did install it. So as you can see, between the time period of coming up with a solution to the problem, and installing the shower door, it was almost a 5 week period. When we installed the shower door, we also completed all of our punch list items so the project would be complete. We reiterated to them several times that we were doing everything in our power to make the homeowner happy, and give them their bathroom back. Once we were complete, it took almost a week for the homeowner to meet with us (which is added into his calculation in his timeline review). We met with the homeowner on November 11th, thinking the project was complete, to which the homeowner provided us with an additional punch list they wanted complete. This took us by surprise, because if they had communicated that to us prior, we certainly would have had it done prior to this meeting. To address the hole in the wall, this is something Solimine Contracting found in the meeting, and was truthfully surprised to see. If this was something we were hiding, we would never have taken off the mirror in the first place and of course we addressed it immediately. To address the other kitchen job that was being done at the same time; at no point was another job taking priority over their bathroom. In fact, the kitchen work was done at night, because those homeowners were not living in the home at the time. There was a conversation about how in general everyone wants things done by the holidays including them, and if that conversation was taken out of context, we apologize. In the end, we are happy that the homeowners are happy with their bathroom, and we wish them luck on their future Home Renovation Projects.

I hired this company to do a whole house window cleaning. The work done was excellent and my windows shine. Trevor was wonderful and very professional. I would highly recommend this company for your small and big household needs. They have also replaced my roof and done interior painting for me in the past. Excellent company.

Solomine replaced our roof. They did a wonderful job. They are very customer responsive and very clean and professional. I have also had them do my windows and the service is reasonable priced but the results are shining and worth the money. I recommend them highly.

Review by in Peekskill, NY
Make sure to read addendum.....these issues were resolved........Do not make last payment until all work don !!!!! $1300.00 worth of damage to my Brazilian cherry floors, during full kitchen reno and some tiling in living room. Contractor said he would fix.I have two piles of wood in my office that are the wrong size. Damaged wood held together by blue tape for over 2 months now during the holidays. Contractor no longer returns calls nor texts. I also came home to a kitchen blind that was ruined and would no longer open and they never even mentioned it, probably hoping I would not notice it. Meanwhile I spent over $30,000 on kitchen reno and have another $40,000 to $60,000 I wanted to do with them. I was also left with an unfinished wood ceiling border that separates kitchen space from living room. Looks awful. I have been waiting months for the repair. I will admit, i gave contractor too much time to fix due to the relationship i thought existed but that left me with damaged floors and an unfinished ceiling border and just like my friends and relatives, a bad story to tell. Addendum 2/21/17 Company made themselves available to me and corrected the wrongs this weekend. The repaired floor looks amazing. A combination of lighter colored wood with the original darker color wood looks wonderful. The workers are top notch and you do get a nice value for your buck. I have changed my ratings based on the work that was done overall. My original rating was due to my anger but the Solomines quickly resolved the issues once contact was made. I would recommend to friends and neighbors .
Response by Solimine Contracting, LLC: Thank you for your concerns, and although no company likes a bad review, it is certainly something we can learn from and perhaps take a better avenue to approach the next time something happens. We have fully acknowledged that there was damage to their floors, and have ordered wood to properly fix the problem. We had trouble ordering the flooring , and should have better communicated that to them; however it is on order and we are waiting for it to come in. The office has received no calls or emails from the Homeowner, however is they contacted a person directly, we are certainly looking into that and assuring that possibly ignoring a customer will not happen again. We were not aware, however of any other issues, although when in contact with the Homeowner we will discuss any other concerns with them as well. As far as the original flooring contractors accusations of us yelling at him; that is a completely false statement,; and again, something we are just hearing about. We did, in fact ask him for a quote, to which we questioned him why it was as high as it was. We too, felt that we had a good relationship with the Homeowners, and our lack of communication by no means, has any indication of our company not fixing their current problem.

Review by in Norwalk, CT
Terrible experience for what was noted as a simple bath remodel - lots of delays, incorrect measurements, cheap materials, drop cloths not used past day one, and just too many incidents to list them all here really. Make sure you have every basic item promised written in the contract or you will be purchasing them on your own. In summary, disappointing on all levels which is a shame since I had hoped to use them for future remodeling projects.
Response by Solimine Contracting, LLC: Thank you for your concerns. We always welcome feedback, whether it be good or bad. We would like to take a moment to clarify a few of the homeowner's concerns. The delays in the project were only due to certain materials that were ordered, that did not arrive on time. There was, in fact, something that was ordered that came in damaged, that we had to reorder as well. This was something beyond our control. As far as quality of materials were concerned, Solimine Contracting did not select any materials for the bathroom remodel. The homeowner chose all the materials based upon the homeowners budget. With that being said, we do understand that every project is not going to go as smooth as we'd like it to be. We do, with every renovation though, make sure that we go through any touch ups and/ or concerns with every homeowner, before receiving a final payment upon completion of the job. This project was no different than any other. We understand that in the homeowner's eyes, we failed them as their contractor, however, being a construction company, serving clients for over 20 years, we do everything in our power to make every client happy in the end. Our goal is build relationships with every client we service. This homeowner is exactly the same. If there is anything we can do to win your trust back in your future renovation projects, we would be more than happy to speak to you. However, we do understand that you have many options when choosing a contractor, and we wish you luck on any future home improvement projects you may have.
