Dear Mr. Kyger:
I went to Ocean City yesterday to “walk the building”
with your project supervisor Larry Wharton.
It just sparkles!
For the last four years, All States has completed
projects at Ocean Tower. For the last
two, on my watch, we have worked closely with Larry and have found him to be an
excellent supervisor and craftsman. He
and his crew have done excellent work.
They pay attention to details and don’t cut corners. This year, in preparation for coating the
stairways for the first time, Larry called to recommend further patching of
cracks on stair treads. It added to the
cost of the work, but it was clearly necessary and greatly improved the look of
the final product.
I, and I believe all Ocean Tower owners, have come to
recognize that maintaining the value and appearance of an oceanfront property
requires a continuing program of maintenance and repair. It has been a pleasure to work on this with
All States Construction and, I hope, that will continue in the future.
Please convey our thanks and best wishes to all of the
All States Construction staff.

"Thank You" doesn't even begin to touch it! You have all been great to work with through all the land mines! If ever you need or want an endorsement from a "satisfied customer" please give me a call. I will be honored and delighted to give you and All States my full support!
Gratefully, MJ — Mary Jo H. Timmons, Prudential Gallo Realtors,

On behalf of the Viking II Condo Association, I would like to commend you for the excellent work you did on our building. At our building owners meeting, we heard nothing but good comments about the work you did on our building. This included the entire project, from the windows and doors to the masonry work and the painting and siding. Everyone was amazed at the transformation of the building. The owners were so pleased with the work we voted to bring your company back for future maintenance projects. — Hellen Ellerman, President, Viking II Condo Association
Not often do I deal with a business whose personnel are as great to work with as yours. Larry and crew were very professional and helpful. Larry called me and kept me up to date on their working schedule. They did a great job and I was so glad that I was able to have you back to give the building a “fresh” look. Pass on my “Great Job Compliments” to the men and crew. — Irene Davis, Chesapeake Outdoor Advertisements, Inc.
My husband is the President of the Breakwater I Condo Association. To say the least everyone in our building is very impressed with your work and employees at the Breakwater II building. Because of the quality of work you did on that building we would like to get a quote on our building. Thank you for your assistance. — Darleen Townsley
After inspection of the south cantilevers, it is now the excellent work that I've always come to expect from All States. I hope the All States' employees will continue to take the extra time to do the job like they just completed on the south cantilevers/balconies. I have notified the owners of all the units involved to let them know that your company did a quality job and will continue in the future. — Ron Vida
I want to write to you to thank you directly for the actions of your company employees in correcting a situation at Salty Sands. Several people that I spoke to at All States during my calls told me that they stood behind their work and would do whatever was necessary to make it right. I am now aware that this was not an idle promise. The stairs look fantastic. — Bob O'Donoghue, Salty Sands Condominium Association
Thank you very much for doing such a wonderful job on our building. It looks great. Please let Jim know that everyone on the job was extremely helpful and courteous. We look forward to doing business with your company in the future. — Diane Burke, Oceanside 136
I would like to thank you and your employees for all your teamwork on the Best Western renovation project. I recognize that this project may have given us all some challenging times, however, with your professional skills and teamwork, the project was a great success. The owners are extremely pleased and appreciate all the assistance and efforts each person gave. The Best Western's corporate office gave the hotel the highest rating that they have ever received. I know that we could not have done it without your assistance and I really appreciate everyone's efforts. I'm looking forward to working with you again on any future projects. — Brendon T. Warfel, Warfel Construction
I would like to take this opportunity to comment and compliment your firm on the recently completed re-roofing of our condominium. Both the professionalism and courtesy shown by your workforce during the entire project has been commented on by a number of our owners. Not only was the job done on time and on budget, it was done with a minimum disruption to our owners and guests, not to mention the fact that the finished product looks great. I look forward to using your firm on future projects at the building. — Dave Romagnoli, Ocean Tower Condominium
After all the hard work your crew put in, I'm betting that the problem with my leaking windows has been solved - to my great relief. We'd like to forward our compliments to your excellent and very hard-working team. They showed as expected, kept us informed of progress and showed us aspects of our home EIF we needed to understand regarding our repairs. Their professionalism impressed us greatly. — Ursula and Gerd Lohmann
I want to express my appreciation for the professionalism and dedication of the workers involved for this private residence project. All workers performed their work assignments with professionalism and courtesy during the project; working through one of the hottest summers we have experienced in many years and completed the project with my complete satisfaction. The painting and attention to detail has brought the home back to life in the same "as built" condition as when first completed. All involved should be proud of their efforts. Jim, please thank everyone at All States for a job well done and I would recommend your services to everyone. — John R. Grim, III
I do want to thank Jimmy and Roger for their exceptional attention to detail and their dogged and patient work on what I used to call the “window from hell”. The window looks as if it’s never been touched AND it doesn’t appear to want to leak anymore. We’ve had a fairly sustained and heavy rainstorm and, knock on wood, I think between Jimmy and Roger we’ve finally fixed the source of that unmentionable leak. Everyone in your company has been wonderful in getting the root of the problem exposed and repaired. I thank you, my dad thanks you, and everyone who’s had to listen to me talk about that window thanks you, too. — Dr. Ursula G. Lohmann
I wanted to take the time to let you know just how pleased we are with the work that you guys did for us! It truly looks fabulous and we couldn't be happier!
It's great to see that there are still companies out there that understand what customer services is all about. From the time we contacted you for a quote to the time that the work was finished, everyone we dealt with was awesome!
Thanks so much for a job well done. — Michelle Burke
All States Construction Company has performed work at the Capri Condominium for the last 12 years in various capacities. In the 1990s a Dryvit exterior system was installed to our building that still exists without issues today. Jim Kyger's staff and technicians have done an admirable job of concrete repair, pool deck coatings, balcony railing and deck finishes, beam replacement and even our tennis court repairs.
The company stands behind their work and have returned to our building on numerous occasions to address reoccurring leaks or problems with coatings; often without a charge. It is rare these days to find a company and group of individuals that give you quality work at a competitive price that you can depend on as does All States Construction.
As a property manager with 25+ years experience in the Ocean City area, the last 13 with Legum & Norman Management Company, I will continue to use and recommend All States Construction Co. at my buildings. — Michael L. Barton, AMS, CMCA, PCAM Capri Condominium Property Manager
I would just like to inform you of the very positive experience I had at Tiffanie By The Sea during the last few months. I, as property manager, would check daily on the construction progress every morning. I would speak with your foreman Russell Adkins, who was always pleasant and very helpful at all times. Mr. Adkins is a credit to your organization. Too often we only point out the bad things during a project of this magnitude, I wanted to share my experience with you and hope that Mr. Adkins will be told about my comments. — Katherine J. Jones, Managing Agent, Tiffanie By The Sea Condominium Association
As of this writing, with the exception of a few very minor "punch list" items that are in the process of being corrected, All States Construction has completed the extensive exterior renovations of the Marylander Hotel Condominium Association (MHCA)building on 127h street ocean side in Ocean City.
I would like to take this opportunity to extend the MHCA's sincere appreciation to you and the highly skilled staff assigned to this project. The level of dedication, professionalism, and competence demonstrated by your on-site staff led by the very capable superintendent, Brian Layton, was a key factor in completing the renovation not only ahead of schedule, but under the projected budget. The age and condition of our building required an on-site project teams possessing superior skill sets, and your team not only demonstrated those capabilities, but exceeded our expectations.
From the inception of the project, the involvement by both you and your Senior Vice President, Mike Coolidge, in the design and specifications development phase with our architectural firm resulted in a superior and more aesthetically pleasing finished design enabling the construction at considerably reduced costs. This plus the frequent inputs by the on-site staff enabled the MHCA to bring the total project under the budgeted funds. The senior management involvement by Mike Coolidge from the project inception through completion ensured that any potential issues were immediately elevated and were resolved before becoming problems and/or a barrier to schedule completion.
Again, Jim, please accept our sincere appreciation and congratulations to you and your whole organization for a job extremely well done. Be assured that we will look again to All States Construction to support any future requirements. — Larry A. Olmo, President Maryland Hotel Condo Association
Thank you for your service repairing the pillar. As always, All States did great work. — Joseph C Raskauskas
Thank you for everything you and your employees did to make the coatings and windows replacement projects successful. Owners and neighbors alike, have commented about how well the building looks, now. Later this year, we expect to solicit bids for cleaning and staining the wooden back porches and painting / replacing the metal front porch railing and step risers. I will contact you when I have the project specifics. Best wishes for a safe and prosperous construction season. — Scott Stone
All States is to be commended for their work and for the items that were accomplished after the first punchout. This did not go unnoticed. The south garage wall was finished, the 5 shallow stairs were filled in & re-deck coated, many decks were re-coated, glue was removed from garage level, old smoking signs were removed, two cinder blocks were removed. The building looks good. We appreciate the attention that Larry has given to this job & we hope to continue to work with him on the East side. Now if the weather will just cooperate. — Bob Reynolds, President, Breakwater II
