About this pro
BEWARE: We had the same experience as the other one-star reviewer on here, but times 100. A little background: We needed to have a bathroom floor leveled, tile laid, the old vanity ripped out and a new one installed. Dean came in, inspected the bathroom, and gave us a bid, saying he "Gets it done right every time." He scheduled the tile guy. The tile guy didn't show up, so Dean and an employee came the day after to do the tile themselves, yelling the whole time about the difficulty of the angles in the bathroom. It ended up Dean was moving to a new town in just a few days, so they had to rush the job. By the end of the project he was so crazed that we were glad to just pay him and have him gone...until we looked more closely at the work. My husband's text to Dean the day after the job was "done," and my follow-up message to him through Thumbtack, tells the rest: ** Dean, after you left we had a chance to look at the work in the bathroom, and we sincerely hope you are not planning to cash that second check. Almost everything we paid to have done was done incorrectly. The grout is mottled in color, the grout lines are uneven, some of the trim was not caulked, and what was caulked is already coming apart. There is ripped up wallboard behind the vanity that is clearly visible. It also looks like the vanity was installed before the caulking was done, so on that wall the caulk stops at the edge of the vanity. If water gets down there, it can easily get into the crack between the trim and quarter round. We now have to paint the grout, rip the vanity back out, fix and repaint the wall, redo all of the caulking, and re-install the vanity. I’m not sure in what world ripping out an old vanity and re-installing a new one does not include hauling away the trash and hooking up the sink and taps, but that was not technically spelled out in the contract so OK. On top of it, we have spent the last few days cleaning up the mess left behind. I spent a good part of the day on my hands and knees scrubbing the front porch…twice. That includes the shutters, which were covered with dust and debris. We also had to scrub grout off the wood stairs inside the house, and scrub down all the doors and trim upstairs. Looking at the results, and the mess left behind, it’s extremely clear that speed was more important than care in this project. For you this was a job that had to get done fast before your move, but we have to live with the results. We spent what is a lot of money for us to get this done, and now it will be weeks before it will be ready for use because we have to redo much of it and finish it all ourselves. We are very disappointed. I would be happy to send you photos of all of this, including the state of the front porch, the caulking that has already separated, and more. We don’t want to fight over $600, but we hope you agree that this was not $1400 worth of results. ** My message to Dean the day the check was cashed: Wow. Very, very disappointed. My husband's text described all the issues we've found with your work. He's spent the last few days cleaning up the dirt, dust, and grout stuck everywhere, and I've spent the last few days freaking out because we have an exchange student coming to live with us later this month—and we don't have the money to have the bathroom redone right now, so we'll be redoing what we can when we can. When you came in to give your bid you said you "Get it right every time." It's clear now that you were trying to fit in one final job before your move, and when the tile guy didn't show up it threw off your schedule. But to rush through, doing things poorly and leaving other things undone altogether...ugh. We're left a bunch of problems to fix, and $1400 poorer for it. We paid for a promise, and for work, that we simply didn't get. ** Based on the other one-star review here—the one I should have listened to, I guess—if you hire this company, when time is running short YOU'RE left fixing/finishing the work.Aug 3, 2018VerifiedDean O.'s reply
Never complained while I was doing work..did not let
I hired Dean & Gio to install some kitchen cabinets, frame in a refrigerator closet and build some decks. I was so happy with their work that I hired them to do more things around the house (hang doors, finishing touches, change door hardware, replace rotted trim, etc...). I'm a realtor and based on my positive experience I can confidently recommend them to my clients.Jul 16, 2017Verified
Dean was professional in his work as well as with his communication. Dean is a perfectionist and it shows in his install of the Screen Eeze and screen on our porch. I highly recommend him for your next project. He will be the first one that we call next time we are in need of a skilled carpenter. Could not be happier with our experience.Feb 28, 2017Verified

They did an awesome job re-screening our screened in porch! They knocked out the work in a matter of hours and even had the patience to work with us on materials. (We bought the wrong spline and they were nice enough to go to the store to purchase the right spline and materials). I would definitely recommend Men at Work!Jun 26, 2018Verified
