Project #1 My anticipated project was to completely transform a wall space, In my garage, for a storage closet that could be Inclosed with doors. Mr. Lewis meticulously sketched a plan on paper with all dimensions necessary to fit the space given, calculating cost of materials,labor, and a projected length of time to complete the job., while devoting much attention to structural detail, making sure that the finished product complemented the already existing structural design of the garage itself. Good communication was key throughout the project, and I was pleased that Mr. Lewis would update me on a daily basis as the project progressed. I was greatly pleased with his well thought out plan, attention to detail, and his level of professionalism. Project #2 Maximizing more space in an existing master bedroom closet was project #2. Mr. Lewis drew a design to completely transform a large closet space with wire shelving into a closet with customized wood shelving with expanded hanging space as well. Track lighting was installed to replace single light fixtures to allow for better lighting throughout. In order to complete this project, Mr. Lewis did all of the electrical, sheetrock, carpentry, and painting himself. I am completely satisfied with the workmanship and completed project.Jan 31, 2017
James and his wife, Susan are wonderful people. James is not finished with the renovation of my master bath but, thus far, his work is professional and he has done a good job. He is thoughtful about what should and should not be done and has shown good judgment and consideration about the finished product. I'm sure when the job is complete I will be able to write about how beautiful my bathroom is. UPDATE June 13, 2017: I'm late sending this update but hope people see it and send James work. My beautiful master bath is finished and let me say it is exactly how I envisioned it to turn out! Honestly, it exceeds my expectations. The work James did is truly a work of art. He saw my vision and made it come true. I am very particular and I know James saw this in me. His work is meticulous and he worked tirelessly to make sure everything turned out like I imagined. Unfortunately, I can't get pictures uploaded to this review but please take my word for it -- the bath is gorgeous. I now count James and his wife, Susan, as friends and will absolutely call on James for any other work I need done to my home. Thank you, James, and God bless you!Jun 13, 2017Verified

We had a new construction home and James Lewis was an authorized dealer/installer of Onyx products for our 2.5 bathrooms. He installed a custom walk in shower and a double vanity top in our master bathroom. He installed Onyx vanity tops in the other two bathrooms. The fit and finish work in the walk in shower met all our expectations. His attention to detail was exceptional. James Lewis was courteous and willing to work with our ideas. We were pleased with his workmanship and skill. We gladly recommend James Lewis if you want to hire a professional you can trust.Feb 9, 2017
James did a fantastic job on my bathroom remodel. He made sure we discussed every detail so I got what I wanted in the project. Everything turned out great, and I plan to use him again.Oct 13, 2017Verified
James did an excellent job, I love my new shower! He also hand-made two medicine cabinets which I designed, they turned out better than I could have imagined. His design suggestions were right on, and he was very concerned that I be satisfied with his work, willing to re-do, if necessary. I will be hiring him for additional work.Jan 18, 2017Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I generally look at a project and estimate according to experience and research if necessary. I do sometimes work strictly by the hour, which in some cases better suits the situation for all involved. My hourly rate for skilled labor with necessary tools is a minimum of $40.00. I charge a lesser rate for material selection and pickup, etc in such a situation. I keep a fair tally of such costs, but in a bid I would have it figured in as best possible. I do not mark up material costs..we are already paying for enough "fingers in the pie" so to speak...(My humble opinion...)
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?(A) Listen to what they want (B) Look at where they want it. (C) Decide if it's possible and how to accomplish it. (D) Put $ amounts with the plan (E) Present those conclusions and listen to their response (F) Rethink/figure if necessary (G) Come to a financial agreement and terms (H) Commence with project...
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Just to avoid a blank space, I suppose I could truthfully say I've been enrolled in ongoing studies with the American University of Blue Collar Survival...majoring in Residential Remodeling.
