Siding, Roofing, and Basement Project on 149th Avenue in Howard Beach, Queens, NY
Patti B’s home sustained major damage by Super Storm Sandy. Gotham Builders came in and replaced all the roofing and siding. A year later the downstairs of her home, a walk in basement apt, was destroyed by a sewer back up in Howard beach Queens (NYC). After helping her get a good settlement from the city of NY, we rebuilt her basement apt.
“In October of 2012 my home was devastated by Super Storm Sandy. Gotham Builders were awesome and they put everything back together again! My roof, siding and my basement were all repaired by Gotham. They had not only given me the best price but made me feel so comfortable and confident that they would take care of everything. And they did. In April of 2013 my home was once again under water. This time from a flood caused by the DEP. There was some computer glitch and the flood gates that would normally direct the overflow of water back out to the Atlantic Ocean did not do what they were supposed to and the water came flooding back into my area of Howard Beach. It was an 8 block square – a couple of hundred homes that were affected and mine was one of them. Immediately I contacted Gotham who was able to come in and get me my bills from what they had done for me the previous year after Sandy. It was like starting over again and I can’t describe how devastating this wa s. Once again Greg from Gotham came through for me. Once my suit was settled with the city of NY, they came in and re-built everything that was ruined and even waterproofed the entire exterior down to the foundation. They recommended sump pumps and put them where they needed to be. They also recommended ceramic tile on the floor which was 1100 square feet. I didn’t think I’d be able to do that but they worked with me and I am so happy that I did that. Not only does it look beautiful, its so easy to keep and I don’t ever have to worry again about tiles floating! The kitchen that they put in makes me want to cook in the basement. It’s gorgeous! They Renovated my basement after another devastating flood!”
