    5 stars all the way around. Great quality, on time, very clean. In fact I've already asked Tim for a bid on another project.

    Not great.
    Not happy with the result.
    Tim O. Mar 19, 2017

    This repair was previously attempted by the home owner which used a substance that could not be removed from the joint without damaging the drywall further. I removed what would come off without damaging the drywall, but some of the substance still remains which made it impossible to get the seam back down to flush with the drywall. With any knockdown texture repair you will always notice a line between the existing and the repair edges since you are placing texture on top of texture. The only way to avoid this is to completely skim coat the whole ceiling and retexture which is a very expensive project. As always, I would like the customer to contact me if they feel they have an issue with my work. I may be able to address the issue or make changes to the repair. Thanks.

    Great Quality
    Tim was one of the first to respond to my post, sent me an immediate quote, and followed up on scheduling the project very timely. He did GREAT quality work, and kept the work within the budget we had discussed, even after there was more to the project upon his arrival. Thanks for great work, Tim!

    Lesson learned!
    Stated he was busy and would call on Saturday or first part of coming week. Never called and never followed up.

    The phone number you provided me does not work. I have tried it many times. I assumed you would try and contact me since I wasn't able to contact you.

    Tim finished the inside of the garage in the house I just bought. He responded to my request quickly and the price he charged was very reasonable. He finished the job over the course of a few days and I couldn't be happier! I will definitely use O'Leary Enterprises again!

    Came out for estimate. Said he would email us with estimate. Never came, asked him for estimate. Said he was working on it. Emailed him about a couple additonal questions-Never really got back to us about suggestions and how to proceed. Never got the estimate that he stated he was working on. So, we moved on to other profiles. Job is scheduled with a different company.

    I met with this customer to discuss the replacement of vanity tops in three of their bathrooms, along with a few other miscellaneous repairs. The vanity tops appear to be a custom size that would have to be replaced by an actual countertop company. I gave the customer the number of a counter top company that I trust. The customer was instructed to get a quote on replacing the tops. Once they had the quote and confirmed they were able to make the new tops, I would be able to continue with my estimate on the remainder of the work. This was explained several times. I've had no call from this customer in the last two weeks regarding this project. My phone is always on, I strive to communicate with customers on any issue. Thanks.

    Tim was polite and aware of the fact that he was working in our salon space while we were providing services to our guests. We hardly noticed he was there.

    Tim was timely, professional and completed the job to my satisfaction. I was nervous about mounting my TVs to the wall and he put my mind at ease. Now I'm enjoying my shows the way they should be. A+ to O'Leary Enterprises!

    I have used O’Leary Enterprises L.L.C. on numerous occasions for various types of home repairs, including drywall and electrical projects. The quality of the work was excellent and the projects were finished in a timely fashion. They are very courteous and detail oriented. D.K., Johnston, IA.
  • Kirstin K. Dec 17, 2015
    My husband and I found O’Leary Enterprises L.L.C. online and are so happy with the work Tim did for us. We had a variety of ceiling fans that we needed to install, each one a little different from the others, and he had absolutely no problems getting everything done in a reasonable amount of time. He was on time, very professional, quick, clean, and quiet. We plan to use him again for additional projects and services around our home and will recommend that our family and friends do the same.

Q&A

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I have many regular customers, but I can also be found through thumbtack and through my website. Customers are always welcome to call, text or email me with their requests.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I grew up in the construction industry and have had my own business since 2007.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.
The normal process is to check out the job and give a verbal estimate. For most jobs this seems to satisfy the customer and myself. They know what the cost is going to be and I know how much time and what materials the job will require.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
My family owned a construction business.
What types of customers have you worked with?
I am very fortunate to have a very good customer base from the Des Moines and surrounding area.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
I just recently finished my own kitchen. I changed the color of our cabinets and added new hardware which saved us a ton of money and they look like new. I also added a tile back splash and new counter tops to complete the remodel .
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Make sure the provider is adequately insured and have completed a background check. Most people run a competent business, but you can easily avoid a problem contractor by doing some quick research.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
It's great if the customer can do a little research before they actually pursue a handyman for their project. One good example is garbage disposal replacement. All though a garbage disposal is a straight forward and easy job, there are many different brands, options and price ranges to choose from. If you can pick out which disposal you are wanting beforehand, it can simplify the process once you have found the handyman you want to use.
