Hardwood floors, Crawl space cleaning and insulation, wall and ceiling paintingExperience and Good Comments
Victor Wu bid the project with appearance of professionalism and confidence at the beginning. He did very good well showing his confidence and that he had 34 years of experience in the industry. And I looked at the rating here and the rating seemed ok. So I chose him.
At the end, the painting his workers did was subpar, the wood flooring has a section uneven, and the crawlspace work is way too expensive than others. I have asked him for a written contract so that I can have warranty and he never wanted to give it. When you talk to him about the issues he would become defensive.
He does not want to have a contract written even though I requested it a few times during and after the work. I am not sure whether I would get warranty for the project.
Clean up crawlspace. Seal leaking concrete wall. French drain. Install 1/3 HP sump pump.Experience and Good Comments
Got four quotes. one no show. one for $4400 + tax. one never reply back. Wu Construction give me super fair price for such project.
Three 劳模 arrived on time in the early morning. It took them whole day to finish the job so I thought the price is definitely worthy.
my crawlspace is huge and have multiple leaking point. They cleanup thoroughly and seal all leaking spot. Dig a long french drain and put a 1/3 HP sump pump in the lowest place. Cover ground with black sheets(?) to keep everything clean and dry.

Clean crawl Space, install new vapor and floor insulation, repalce broken insulation on pipelineExperience and Good Comments
工程： crawlspace整个清理（这里不算是完全清理，因为前房主找个不靠谱的公司清理过，虽然不干净，但是大部分还都清理了，所以清理的活只有实际的一小部分），铺上全新的floor insulation 和vapor, 更换掉管道上损坏的insulation（本来应该是全部换掉管道的，可能在estimate的时候，正好我不在，我的agent帮我联系的，可能没沟通清楚，写在estimate doc里面的只写损坏的给替换，所以最后只能这样做了）
Translation by HHY: Project details:cleanup crawlspace (not complete cleanup because the previous homeowner hired a so-so contractor who already did some cleanup). put up new floor insulation and vapor barrier. Replace torn insulation (I should have asked them to replace all air ducts but during estimation I was not there. so the quote only included replacing broken air ducts).
1. the most competitive company in terms of price. Fast work. one day
2. didn't do much research on materials. insulation looks good. vapor barrier looks ok. ;
做工一般， 我当时没全程监督，只是每1.2个小时下去看一趟，最后验收的时候才发现很多边角都处理的不好，insulation固定的地方有挺多地方都很稀疏， 最后看到处理不好的地方挺多，只让工人修补的一小部分比较明显的地方
Translation by HHY: OK quality. I didn't supervise closely enough (I only checked every 1.2 hrs). When it was close to completion I found that there were many small issues. I asked them to fix some obvious places.
Overall good price but ok quality. If I could keep closer eye on it it might get better result. So it is better to keep a close eye and fix it as it goes.

Replacement of the sewage pipe outside the houseExperience and Good Comments
After the experience with the owner of WU construction, I feel I have the obligation to write the review to share the experience.
When I was searching the contractor for the plumbing service in this web site, WU has three reviews and all gave 5 stars. It is no brainer to choose this, considering most of the contractors in this web site don't even have three reviews.
He came to my site after receiving my call. He gave me the quote with the picture showing "L" pipe his team would replace under the dirt. But he did not measure the length. We did negotiate the price with him. He said it is project based charge, and not based on the time and resources he would use. After some rounds of text message, he agreed to reduce the charge about 30%.
He sent three workers the next day and left them in my house. These people finished the work. In the middle of the day, he called me and asked for the price increase. I asked for the reason. He replied that "I" part of "L" has been extended to replace more pipe. He marked on the picture the extension is 35 ft. It sounds reasonable and I said "Yes".
Later, I found that his team did not even dig the dirt of "I" and the only thing they did is "_" part of "L". The 35 ft extension did not exist at all.
Victor Wu claimed that he had 33 year experience in this area, but he could not even draw a picture correctly. All he wants to get more money by providing the false information. If you want to use his service, be cautious.
Water Main Line Replacement (Outdoor Meter to House)Experience and Good Comments
Professional service and keep customer in mind.
Problem started with leak so I had to shut off the valve (No water to use).
They sent professional plumber who fixed the leak quickly before replacement permit arrived so I could use water (Arrived at 8 AM, really appreciated that)
Then they dug out the whole thing and replaced the water line within one day (right after permit approval) and also finished refill right after the inspection.
