Comments: They are a speed and efficient company. They can help with all sorts of problems. I am an elderly woman who had water problems with garage flooding. They showed up super fast and helped save me from a disaster. I can not thank them enough.

Comments: Louis was so incredibly helpful from the estimation process all the way through to project completion. He explained everything he planned to do to solve my landscape drainage issue and his design not only works great and has eliminated my problem entirely, but it looks fabulous too! It was such a pleasure to work with a contractor that had my best interests in mind and truly cared about my satisfaction. I would absolutely hire Louis and his crew again.

Comments: Louis provided a fair estimate for masonry work and impressed me with his knowledge of the subject and his approach to solving our problem. Our front porch brickwork was in bad need of repointing and his worker, Ricardo did an excellent, beautiful job. Louis and his brother, Frank, finished off the project by resurfacing the concrete portion of the porch. Very pleased with every aspect of this company?s work. Will use again when needed.

Comments: Attention to detail!!!

Review Date: 07/18/2020 | Author: Richard F.

Comments: It was good to see how the employees working on my project would discuss any questions I had. Their explanations to my questions were in great detail as to what was being done and why. A hard working team was what I saw. I would definitely recommend this company to anyone and would use them again. Cost quoted was fair even though they were asked to do a little extra by the owner with no extra charge! Have high confidence in this company for your next job.

Review Date: 05/07/2020 | Author: Gary B.

Comments: We hired Louis and his crew from Approved Construction to remove our old damaged retaining wall and install new block retaining walls along our driveway, paver walk to the front door, concrete walk to the back yard and pave the driveway. Louis quoted me the best price and he was courteous, professional and always available to discuss the project. All work was completed in a timely manner and we're very happy with how the project improved the look of our home. We received many compliments from neighbors and will use Louis and his crew again.

Comments: Louis and his crew were very courteous, worked very hard and accommodated all of my requests. Louis takes great pride in his work. Louis and his crew were here on the start date and completed the project in 2 days as promised. The project was complex, but Louis and his crew were able to handle every challenge. I plan on using Approved Construction again.

Comments: Sidewalk replacement was perfectly done and looked great. Repairs to the French drain were a success. Water now drains away from the house to the curb for the first time ever. This was a great job done by skilled people who take pride in their work and treat their customers well. Very trustworthy. I will hire them again.

Review Date: 11/06/2017 | Author: Stacey M.

Comments: Louis quoted me the best price to repair my paver driveway and blue stone porch. He installed belgian blocks in addition to the repair of the bricks. His team was very courteous and cleaned up the property at the end of each day they were here. The project was completed in a very timely manner and Louis was on time as promised each day. He called me before the project to see if I had any questions and followed up with me during the project. My driveway looks brand new even though the pavers are 20 years old. Very happy I found Louis and would recommend him and rehire him for additional projects at my home.

Review Date: 10/10/2017 | Author: Paul H.

Comments: Louis and his team repaired my basement slab that had sunk 6 inches in one corner. The floor in this corner was so uneven with the rest of the slab that I needed to place pieces of wood under furniture to level it out . Louis provided me repair options and what he would do if it was his house. I went with his recommendation and I couldn't be happier. My only regret is that I didn't hire Louis earlier. He and his team were professional, courteous and provided First Class "old school" craftsmanship. I would be more than happy to recommend Louis and his team to anyone requiring concrete work.

Review Date: 08/29/2017 | Author: Antoinette C.

Comments: Lou and his crew are very professional. They completed the job in under 2 days, and the result is excellent.

Review Date: 08/21/2017 | Author: Kathy B.

Comments: We had Louis install a new retaining wall, stairs, walkway and widen our driveway. We are extremely happy with the results. Louis offered the best price compared to other contracters we got quotes from. He understood what we wanted and even came up with suggestions to increase the curb appeal. There was communication throughout the renovation when there needed to be. Louis was knowledgeable and constructed everything properly to code and the crew was hard working and paid attention to detail. We had a great experience with the renovation and highly recommend Louis.

Comments: Very friendly and professional workmen. All our questions were answered and the work was completed in a timely manner. I liked that they took their time and didn't rush the job. The patio turned out beautifully. Louis worked hard to make sure we were satisfied with the job. Would use again.

Review Date: 11/13/2016 | Author: Sid S.

Comments: Louis and team installed a paver patio and walkway for us. Louis was very easy to reach during the bid process, and visited the house several times as we negotiated. The work was completed a few days later than anticipated, but that was because of the weather. Louis kept me informed every day. He called every morning to let me know what the crew was going to do, and then in the evening to let me know how the day went. Louis also fixed a loose railing on my porch, though it was not something that was in the contract. The team also fixed some minor items after the initial install was done. Louis was very clear that they would keep working until everything was to my satisfaction and they definitely delivered on that promise. I am very happy with the way everything went, and do not hesitate to reccomend them for any work.

Review Date: 11/11/2016 | Author: Gabriella N.

Comments: They dealt with getting the permits and constantly following up with the city and working with them to get everything done. I didn't have to do a thing. They were also the best price and did an amazing job, would absolutely hire them again.

Review Date: 11/10/2016 | Author: Les S.

Comments: Approved Construction is very easy to work with and customer satisfaction remains one of their highest priorities. My paver walkway project had to begin and be completed before I began a period of extended travel. Louis, along with his crew jumped through hoops and finished my job on time and with several weeks to spare. I was asked each day if I was satisfied with the work that was done and if I had any issues they were quickly addressed and resolved. I recommend Approved Construction very highly and will use them again for any masonry needs that arise.

Review Date: 09/23/2016 | Author: Jay A.

Comments: They did all they said they would, and more! Louis and the team at Approved Construction helped me with a new set of front steps quickly, expertly and neatly. They even touched up a couple other items around the house with me even asking. Louis, a man of his word, explained the whole job in simple terms and was very approachable and easy to speak with when I had questions along the way. I'm very pleased with the final result(s).

Review Date: 07/08/2016 | Author: Lincoln X.

Comments: Approved Construction LLC did excellent job building a beautiful patio for us. They are hard working people. They finished what they promised and went beyond what they promised. We are very satisfied the outcome resuls! The owner- Louis is a detail oriented person and put the custom's need at the first place. He is very responsible and pleasant person to deal with. All cleaned up nicely. Highly recommended.

Review Date: 06/13/2016 | Author: Thomas M.

Comments: The Guys at Approved Construction are hard working and conscientious. I challenged them with the full restoration of a four-story, one hundred year old masonry building that needed sophisticated concrete restoration, water-proofing and two color paint on the entire outside. Additionally, they helped me with concrete floor repair, block wall construction and Bilco door installation. I can't recommend any team higher than Louis and his group. I almost didn't hire them because they were the lowest of three bids, but I can definitely say I got an excellent job at a very reasonable price.

Review Date: 02/25/2016 | Author: Dan S.

Comments: I hired Approved Construction LLC to perform some foundation repair work. About me, I find myself to be a detailed oriented with a pretty good understanding of home related projects. I grew up in a 1920s colonial and my present home is from 1860. I worked on my childhood home with my parents and now have done many improvements personally. About Approved LLC, for my multi-week project Approved partnered with Hardcore Construction. Approved is run by a “gentle giant” Lou and Hardcore, Mike. In my opinion, which should be taken with grain of salt, as I am not in the business, Approved and Hardcore are best for masonry work. I believe this is how Lou got his start. Mike worked on sky scrapers. I will mention I believe Approved is capable of other home projects although I have no experience with this other work outside masonry. The project started working with Lou and I moved relatively quickly to solely working with Mike. Lou and Mike are a great balance. Lou very gentle and Mike a bit more direct. The work was done well, timely, and on budget. The team worked well together. The executors were very pleasant and well mannered. One worker offered many times to help my wife with groceries, etc. I ended up just leaving the workers to complete the job unattended under Mikes care. Some project notes: The team was able to quickly adapt my change in requirements. To give you an example, we had a signed contact and quickly adjusted the scope of work to something different. Approved took the change very well, even returning materials no longer required. The job has now been complete about 3 weeks. I have had some minor issue. Mike has been attentive returning to my home to correct minor issues quickly and tentatively. This is even after the final payment was made to Approved. Overall, I am satisfied with the work and would recommend Approved.

Comments: Did an exceptional job! Timely work and very friendly.

Review Date: 12/21/2015 | Author: Anthony N.

Comments: Louis was extremely accommodating and gave me the best price out of any contractor. My father in law (retired now) had 43 years in the contractor and building field, he said Louis and approved contruction did the best mason work he has ever seen. That is huge coming from my father in law. My wife and I are building a modular home within the next year (after closing on the house we are currently selling) and plan on using approved construction LLC to build our foundation. His price can't be beat!

Comments: I am very pleased with their services, I had my consultation yesterday and today my wall was fixed (24 hours after my consultation!). I am so happy to have my wall fixed in such a short amount of time, I thought it would take weeks and they got it done the next day. I would definitely recommend this company for anyone who needs work done in a timely manner. Also, the quality of their work is superior. Overall working with them was a great experience and I certainly will use their services in the future.

Comments: Repaired two plaster ceilings and replaced a third with drywall, then painted all three. Explained thoroughly before work was begun. Showed up on time and completed the job in two days. Good cleanup when work was done. Workers were all courteous and skilled. Have just hired them to do chimney repair and repair two more ceilings damaged by leaking chimneys

Review Date: 03/18/2015 | Author: Tony S.

Comments: I typically do my own work so going to a contractor was new for me. Louis was prompt in making initial contact. Came out the next morning to scope the job and provided a very reasonable estimate. His team showed up first thing in the morning on the scheduled day and worked very hard for two full days on the job. The work was particularly challenging due to the obstructions they needed to frame around but everything turned out very professional looking. His team were friendly, trustworthy and cleaned up the job site nicely at the end of each day. I couldn't have been happier and am evaluating them for additional work opportunities. Thanks for a very good experience!

Review Date: 03/18/2015 | Author: Gil L.

Comments: I needed a drywall repair done after I put in a french drain. Louis struck me right away as very knowledgable of what was required for this type of job. He worked with me on the pricing and had his team on time the next morning. They did a quality job. Would recommend them to my friends.

Comments: It is with pleasure that we, the Hermits of Bethlehem, write this letter of reference for Approved Construction L.L.C. They provided excellent solutions in repairing 3 chimneys of our central house and getting rid of squirrels that living in the roof. Lou Demary wisely assisted us in cost savings and how to use the chimney efficiently. Approved Construction organization consistently demonstrated their commitment to the success of this project by their attention to detail on all phases that includes schedules, quality control, and good communication.

Comments: Renovation of 3rd floor Victorian-- The guys arrived on time, with materials and jumped into the project. They were wonderful to deal with and did an excellent job. It was amazing to see how hard these guys worked and how well they worked together. I am very pleased with their work and can't wait for my next project (bathroom/kitchen? I cant decide). I definitely recommend these guys. (Plus they were great with my dogs).

Comments: I wanted to write this review after Lou Demary from Approved Construction had done work for us at our home about two weeks ago. Due to the holiday season this review is overdue. One morning my husband went down the basement to see water coming through cracks in our concrete basement steps. He starting mopping, using the wet vac and keeping towels around and on the stairs that had to be wrung out in my machine every 3-4 hours. We did not know what to do but I did remember that I had used Home Advisors before with success. I emailed HA and asked for someone who could help with my problem. HA recommend a few contractors who did basement waterproofing. We were impressed with Approved Construction and all the great reviews on line. I called him right away on Sunday morning and he responded quickly. Since he only lived 10 minutes away he said he would be at my home shortly. He assessed the situation and he said he would come the next day with someone since it was going to rain on Tuesday for a couple of days???????????????????????? We were very grateful. Lou repaired the damage and told us to monitor the water when it rained and to call him if we needed further assistance. There was a few small areas that required further assistance and Lou came back the very next day and took care of the problem as promised. Yea, the job was complete and I can????????????????????????t tell you how wonderful it is not to see water on the stairs! Lou????????????????????????s work was of the highest standards and his price was very fair for the work done. We are very grateful and would not hesitate to use him again for any further work we may need.

Comments: Louis completed setting my patio a few weeks ago. We initially discussed and negotiated a much bigger job but decided to scale back due to budget limitations- what I liked best was how he articulated the work. He was gracious and helpful throughout the process, timely and detailed. I certainly intend hiring him again.

Review Date: 11/17/2014 | Author: Frank M.

Comments: Highly recommended! Louis did a great job replacing my steps. The job exceeded my expectations. Great communication and the job was done on time, on budget, and for a very good price. Left no mess whatsoever. Already have another job for them. All home repair should be this easy.

Comments: I met with Louis the same day I called him. He gave a reasonable price for the replacement of my front retaining wall and was able to complete the job in the 1 day time frame that he promised. Louis is approachable, knowledgeable, and reliable. Anytime I called him, he either answered immediately or returned my phone call less than 10 minutes after I left a message. I went from having the worst retaining wall on the having the most beautiful/sturdy one! :) I plan on contacting Approved Construction for future projects.

Comments: The job was done with 2 days of the time frame I was given even after additional repairs and rain. I was kept in the loop as the work progressed. All trash was removed each day as promised and we were left with easy access to the house during construction. The crew showed up when promised and upon completion left the property in better shape then they found it.

Review Date: 08/28/2014 | Author: Robin R.

Comments: This company has good workers who do excellent work. However, they are usually late - sometimes by a day or more. This is really annoying, when you have rearranged your days, to accommodate the schedule they gave you.

Comments: Loius always made sure throughout the project that I was happy with his work. He listened to my concerns and with his vast knowledge, suggested designs that not only met my budget but greatly improved the value of my property. Our work included a new patio off basement slider, walkway from driveway to deck, step down platform from garage, decorative stones underneath deck and fixing an existing front entrance walkway and retaining wall. The job was completed within the estimated time and I would highly recommend his team for any project, we will be using his team for all our future projects!

Comments: Louis business ethic is exceptional. He showed interest in satisfying my construction needs. Louis and his team removed 71' of existing bluestone side walk and replaced it with a new concrete side walk. He also repaired and reconstructed the steps entering my home. The new steps were limestone and brick construction. The porch landing also was also repaired and reconstructed. New lumber with limestone and blue stone inlay were used. The project was a complete success. Louis and his team did a great job. My family and I are very pleased.

Comments: We had Louis, Tom and the crew come in to remove our front walk and replace it with a concrete paver one. They started on time and finished on time and on budget. The walkway looks great. Louis was very responsive and you can tell he wants the customer to be happy. I would absolutely recommend and use this company again for future projects.

Comments: Louis and his crew came in when he said they would. Tackled the job with a tight deadline, suggested a garden wall we had not thought about and now the patio area looks bigger and better than what we had in mind. The job came in above budget, but it was worth it. The only things left to be finished is the addition of the locking sand and stones have to be sealed. This job was done with blue stone and roman cobblestone. Will post a picture when fully completed.

Comments: My job was complex, difficult and labor intensive. I requested an estimate to repair loose mortar in my brick sidewalk and walls, Louis did an assessment and provided a professional recommendation that had a slight increase in cost but yielded an exponential improvment in the outcome!! He finished on time and for the estimated cost. Will definitely have him back when I have more work to do!!

Comments: Rebuilt a retaining wall. Easy to contact and communicate with. Did the work with minimal disturbance to surrounding area.

Review Date: 05/10/2013 | Author: Stephen V.

Comments: They showed up on time, worked until the job was done. Very talented people. Protected sensitive areas (plants). Asked if they could do something before doing (removing garden fence) no problem. Louis explained what and how they were going to do the job. This is very comforting. His workers are very talented, the evidence is in the finished product. By the way this was the only mason to respond through homeadvisor. I had other quotes and Louis had the best price and confirmed problem with his experience. Q--Yes I would recommend Approved Construction, LLC to anyone who asks.

Comments: Approved was excellent in the quickness of their response. Louis was very accommodating in his willingness to work to a short time-line. His scheduled appointment to do the jobe was made for the next day and after a short review of the project over the phone, he came prepared to do the work and finished in two hours. The great part of this is that since this was for my son's house, when he told me about the completed work he said it was execllent and that Approved was very professional in their preparation as well as when the job was done! They did an excellent job, the wall looks great and they totallly cleaned up after their work. Great!

Comments: Louis arrived when he said he would and did a quality job. He explained what he would be doing before he started the job and we were able to follow him every step of the way so we know he did the work he told he would do. The project was delayed by rain,but Louis called every day and as soon as the weather cleared he was back to finish the job. If the weather had cooperated, the job would have been done in 2 days just as Louis said it would be. Nice guy and good work. I would gladly recommend Louis and Approved Construction.

Comments: Louis and the pros at Approved Construction truly went above and beyond on this project. They completed it quickly and perfectly with absolutely no hassle to me the homeowner. This was a job for foundation repair/re-masonry, window installation and power washing, all of which came out great. On top of that, they replaced some pavers they had moved to do the job and put them back in far better shape than they had found them. We all know good contractors can be hard to find, finding great ones even more so. These guys were great - I highly reccomend Approved Construction.
