Contractor List

Getting the right contractor is all about getting advice from those who have already done the same project.  Although the Tannerie Wood Homeowners Association cannot itself recommend specific contractors, this page is the next best thing: a forum for homeowners to exchange information about contractors and projects.

Driveways

Driveway Super Seal Coating

Contact: Elvis

We recently used Driveway Super Seal Coating to have our driveway cracks filled and driveway sealed.  We were pleased with the results and felt the price was reasonable.

I have an electrician I would like to add to the contractors page:

Keith McCall

Ambler, Pa 19002
215-237-7390

He returns calls quickly and is very reliable.

–Lois Girard, August 29, 2007

I agree with Lois’s comments regarding Keith McCall. In my house, he installed a new electrical circuit and outlet, and also ran computer network cable to several rooms. His rates are reasonable, he specs out the job carefully, he is conscientious, and he does good work.

Fireplaces

Jay Chuchman, J.C. Fireplaces, LLC

1329 Richlandtown Pike
Quakertown, PA 18951

I have a wonderful guy who cleans & repairs gas fireplaces & grills.  He charges $130.00 to come out to clean & then $60.00 for additional fireplace.  For 3 plus homes, he would charge $110.00 each.  He was so neat & efficient!!  He cleans every piece & the glass too.  He is awesome!!!

Garage Door Service

Ellis Co., LLC

Recently, on a Sunday, one of the springs that supports my garage door broke, and I could not move the garage door up or down.....it was stuck in the down position.  My car was stuck inside.  I called Ellis Co, LLC and left a message asking them to call me on Monday morning.  They called me back within several hours that same day (Sunday) and told me they'd be out first thing Monday morning, because they were closed on Sunday.  They also "talked me through" how to get the door open, so my car wouldn't be trapped inside.  They go above-and-beyond and are quite prompt and reasonable.

Jack Farrell

Garage doors and electric openers
215-542-9356

Jack gave a good price for quality materials and very professional installation.  He was prompt and thorough - took away all old materials.  I recommend him to anyone needing a new garage door.

Bernice Marinucci, March 31, 2012

Jack Farrell replaced my garage door with a much better model than original.  Reasonable and his crew was really professional and knowledgeable and quick.  I think our residents should keep him in mind if they need garage door replacement.

General Contractor, Stucco Repair, Masonry and Painting

B&H Interior and Exterior

Andrew Parsons
267-981-6571

Andrew Parsons handled our recent insulation and house painting project.  He was the only one willing to put insulation in our walls.  He did that plus power washed the all the stucco prior to painting it.  He did a great job, using a primer first, then Sherwin Williams special paint for stucco.  He did a few extra things that were not part of the original contracted work, at no extra charge.  His card says, "No job too big or too small."

–Maria Rosen, September 3, 2013

Phil Aiello

Todd Price

215-591-9274

Performed "Under Pressure" power washing.  He was very reasonable, prompt, and knew what to do and how to do it. Extremely satisfied with his work!  I think our residents should keep him in mind if they need power washing done.

Handyman

Fred Rosen

I recommend Fred Rosen for general home repairs and home improvements.  He lives in Tannerie Wood and can be reached at 215-628-4717.  Over the years, Fred has completed a myriad of home repairs and upgrades on both the inside and the outside of my house, including:

• Pressure washing the stucco,
• Tiling the floor on the stair landing,
• Fixing exhaust fans in the bathrooms,
• Fixing toilets and leaky faucets,
• Replacing the garbage disposal,
• Replacing the hot water heater,
• Monitoring the roofers who replaced my roof, and
• Many more.

Fred does a great job, does not charge an arm and a leg, and is both honest and upfront. Additionally, he has a master’s degree in toilets.

William Henry Ornamental Iron Works

Plumbing

King Plumbing

Call 800-893-1011

I would like to add King Plumbing to the list of recommended contractors (for plumbing, heating and air conditioning).  We have had a nagging problem with our laundry room drain.  Unfortunately, our favorite contractor, Fred Rosen, did not have the equipment to handle the problem.  King Plumbing did an excellent job of taking apart and snaking the trap.  They were prompt, efficient and competitively priced!!  Highly recommend!!

Andi Lavin, August 27, 2008

Plumbarama

Plumbarama Co., Inc
215-638-1599

I needed emergency service to replace a water heater that began leaking profusely. Called Plumbarama, got immediate excellent service at a competitive price and was highly gratified and satisfied. I'd like to add them to the list of contractors yielding satisfying service.

Replacement Windows

Matus Windows

I recommend Matus Windows for window replacements.  They are at 367 North Easton Road, Glenside, PA 19038.  They have several manufacturers’ windows to choose from and their prices were competitive with other estimates we got.  They have DARK brown – it is NOT an issue.  Tell Alex Matus we recommended them!  Several other homeowners have used Matus as well.

–Maria Rosen, September 29, 2006

Spring House Window and Door

I would like to add Spring House Window and Door to our list of contractors recommended by a homeowner.  I have been dealing with them for 7 years and have found them knowledgeable about what is expected here in Tannerie Wood.  They are reliable and do a good job of cleaning up.  They follow up since they are in the neighborhood and are interested in pleasing their customers. Their address is:  908 Bethlehem Pike,  Spring House, Pa. 19477  (215)653-049.

–Joan Berschler, May 10, 2007

Roofing

Speese Construction

Les Speese
215-262-8688

I'd like to recommend Les Speese of Speese Construction for putting on a new roof.  His price was substantially below other bidders and they did an excellent job.  Fred is familiar with how to install a roof (he did ours on Harrison Place) and so he could evaluate what they were doing.  We are very happy.
