Huge problem with the construction/renovation industry are contractors that over promise, don't return calls and consider only their own time. This was not the case with Abu of Alpha Engineering and I was very pleased with the outcome. Abu was very professional, timely, always returned calls and product as promised. He didn't go missing for 1-2 mths at a time and then have to revisit everything again...as has been the case with other engineers I've worked with that made me late/deficient on my projects. Others I've dealt with are either overpriced, misinformed or too self-important to consider other solutions, making working with them practically impossible. Abu understood the requirements right away and worked with me to get to a successful solution on the first try, no miscommunication or lost time. Fee schedules were transparent and most importantly fair, provided upfront with no later mystery tack ons. I will definitely be working with him again on my next project.
