The Drain Screed is a key component of the AMICO HYDRODRY® system. This revolutionary system expels moisture from behind the cladding in two ways to prevent damaging mold and mildew buildup. A vent at the top of the system allows for evaporated water to escape, while the Drain Screed at the bottom flushes out excess liquid. AMICO also utilized Denis’ knowledge and drive to deliver high-quality products by asking him to stay on as a consultant throughout the project.

We had difficulty finding a reputable company to take on our stucco job for our first home... purchase. Friel quickly identified the issue, took on the work, completed on time and professionally as promised. I am a Real Estate agent and look forward to referring them work in the more

We had Friel replace the stucco on the rear facade of our house with Hardie Board. They are one of... the few companies who do work in town. Mike was responsive and informative as we selected the material and color we wanted to use. Their pricing was reasonable compared with the other estimates we received- and the final invoice was in line with the estimate. The team started work the day after we gave the go-ahead. All of the crews were courteous, respectful, and timely. They kept us apprised of the status of the work and the entire job was complete in 2 weeks. They left the surrounding area cleaner than they found it. I would heartily recommend Friel!read more

They had done the facade on my neighbor’s house. They’d done a really good job, so we decided to... contact them and ask them to finish a job for us on our house. Mike was the guy I emailed and he was friendly, professional and very knowledgeable. The other gentleman who was with him whose name escapes me was equally courteous and very knowledgeable. The work they did for us was of high quality. They even suggested other repairs we may want to consider in the future. Overall, we are extremely happy with the work as well as the service. We highly recommend these more

At the time we hired Friel we were on our fourth contractor with a completely exposed house in the... middle of winter. They met with us on a Saturday morning and by that Monday had a plan in place and had moved around their schedule to willingly take on correcting another contractor’s faulty and negligent work. Their expertise and comfort level with the complexity of a job like ours was initially made evident in comparison to the 20 other contractors we called for estimates, and most importantly in the output of the final product. The siding is (and looks) perfect. Admirably, their team had a strong, informed opinion on the process and steps that need to be done to make the house water tight which gave us additional confidence in the quality of their work and that we would avoid future issues. Mike was very communicative throughout the process and was easy to get in touch more

Finding the right company to fix the stucco is not easy, especially after your previous contractor... just “disappeared” and left the work unfinished. So I took my time to research and compared a few companies, I decided to go with Friel Plastering & Stucco. It's not only for the convenience of using the same company as my neighbors but the professionalism they provided throughout the interactions. The thing I like the most is it's very easy to communicate with them - they are responsive and easy to work with. If you have a project that is going to last for multiple months, it's really important to get a responsive and responsible company.Now my house looks like new. There are still a few minor things left but I am confident they will follow up and finish them well. Stay more
