Martin did a great job installing the new toliet in my master bath. He made sure I was happy with the work before leaving. He was prompt and his rate was very competitive. I would recommend him to anyone.
I needed 3 bedrooms, a bathroom, my banister and all the baseboards painted. These guys are punctual, efficient, enjoyable and clean. They protected all of my belongings...even my front porch. :-) They even helped me move furniture to new positions after they were finished that they had already put back where I had it, because I changed my mind on the placement. Great bunch of guys and really great work.
Wow... great contractor! Ilie runs the company and does the majority of work himself with a few dedicated specialists (plumber, painter, etc.). He does the tile work himself. We hired him for a master bath remodel. On time, honest and on time. His prices were reasonable compared with some other quotes we received. But he's also a real old-world style craftsman dedicated to quality and pride in his work. We already are considering hiring him for another project. I was concerned initially because his regular website appeared offline, but it turns out he's so busy with referrals from Thumbtack and another site he doesn't even need to keep a separate site running since he can only do one job at a time. So glad we hired him!
Photo updates to follow First, I should say that for a big project like this, I would hire John again, bottom line. That is probably the most straightforward way to assess the renovation as a whole. We hear nightmare stories all the time about significant (and even minor) home renovations and, while we had our frustrations, we went through a big job with few significant complaints. Planning/cost: Initially discussing the project, John was extremely receptive to our budget needs: we had saved up a very specific amount of money, and needed to complete two big projects in order to make the house more appealing to future renters (as we plan to move to a home with my wife's parents for the foreseeable future). The house had only one bathroom, even though it was approximately 1600 square feet. We needed to fix that if any families were going to rent. John understood and very clearly explained where we would be able to save money, what he would charge us for his work, for materials he bought vs. materials we provided, the realistic areas we could go cheap and the areas we couldn't scrimp on. John's price was not just competitive, but frankly made the difference between us being able to have these two complete and dramatic projects vs. one that would have left us feeling wanting. However, it was the price along with the fact that his clients indicated he was flexible and budget sensitive through the whole project that made the decision for us. (We've certainly dealt with people who claim to be able to work with "x" budget, and then everything somehow inflates dramatically over time.) We had a laundry/utility room that was separated from the main house by a breezeway. John connected it to the main house with brick in the same style as the house. He converted the room to a full bath and laundry room with a large shower. Simultaneously, he opened up the bare backyard wall of the main house, installing larger windows and glass french doors. Quality of work/cleanliness: John completed a great deal of the work himself, using a subcontractor to perform most of the brick work and the drywall. The quality, functionality, and look of the work overall was simply fantastic. Day after day they meticulously cleaned up their work, leaving as little footprint as possible on our day to day lives throughout the process, which, frankly reduced the stress that I believe tends to naturally accumulate during such projects. Once we paint it I believe the new brick will be entirely indistinguishable from the old. The brick has extremely clean lines in the same pattern as the existing work, and the finishing work around the windows and doors is excellent. We did have a brief ordeal flushing out a clog that seemed to result from construction debris, but ultimately the plumbing is excellent. Similarly, the shower tile work ultimately is terrific, but we did have a problem with the layout due to an error that John corrected, and it looks wonderful. In the bathroom, he took what was basically a junk/laundry room and installed an elegantly laid out vanity, toilet, laundry hookups on one side, and a massive shower, and utility/cleanup sink on the other, with room to spare. He added a simple half-wall to divide the toilet from the washer/dryer that works perfectly to separate the space. The shower he created for us is enormous and beautiful. Every time we go in the room, we are impressed all over again. The whole room could have appeared like a necessary appendage stuck on to the rest of the house, but that large, bright tile shower makes the room look elegant. Flexibility: I hated to lose my very functional utility sink from that room and hadn't planned for a replacement; however, John helped by coming up with a clever solution to put a sealed brick sink in with the water heater closet. which works perfectly. It's a clean, and very functional solution that I constantly appreciate having, though it was certainly a significant adjustment for him. When we requested adjustments, it felt as though John quoted a bit high to accommodate time and materials (and his added stress). But all in all he was fair and up front about the work, his time, and our options. That being said, there were some frustrations: Our frustrations all come down to communication and documentation. I don't fault John for all of this - his talent lies in the work he does; had we been more on the ball, we would have been more clear and organized ourselves. We had any number of preliminary discussions with John, and agreed to three or four major things up front, that satisfied us the work could be done in a way that would meet all of our needs. But as the project began and progressed, numerous details were forgotten. Specifically, the layout of the utility room and the physical requirements for the french doors to be installed. John repeatedly asked how we wanted to accommodate something as if we had not already come to a conclusion on the matter and we would essentially have to re-figure it out. Specifically, he forgot the layout that best accommodated all of the elements I mentioned above, and he forgot that he would have to "float" the bathroom wall, requiring a different (pricier) toilet than originally planned. Additionally, when he went to start work on the french doors, he had to take extra time to order a lintel that would span the entire length rather than two separate lintels - but, of course these were dimensions he'd known since originally planning the project. Things like this ultimately got worked out to our satisfaction, with one frustrating exception, but if either of us had documented what we'd agreed upon, it would have saved a great deal of hassle and debate, as my wife and I had to re-discuss everything ourselves as well, which reinforced John's feeling that we'd never come to a final agreement to begin with. Time/documentation: While we believe John was more than fair in his billing, the lack of clear, consistent documented days/hours prevented us from having a clear, concrete idea where we stood financially during the project. This impacted us when, in a couple of instances, we did ask for changes (such as installing the utility sink) and he quoted us for the change, though we had no idea whether we were in the high or low end of the overall planned project. All of this is to say: John worked it all out, and he did so in a way that was affordable, excellent, excellent, quality, beautiful work. But, in order to avoid frustration, agreements as to planning should be documented and ongoing days/hours worked should be documented. This would help avoid revisiting complicated plans and would allow for adjustments without having to be in the dark about the bottom line. Day in, day out, we are grateful for the work John did, and that it didn't eat us alive financially, because he did come in right in line with the budget. We love looking through our fantastic glass doors every morning. We have guests stay with us for a day or two, and love having a beautiful distinct bathroom they can use when they stay with us. We love knowing they won't feel they're entering into some dark corner of the house tacked on because it had to be, but that there's a beautiful bath with plenty of space that they can make themselves feel at home in.
Herbert and Karen helped me get through the last few days work on a house I have spent many months and years doing up. They did everything from replacing a cracked tile in my kitchen, to taking off a branch of a tree, to putting up plaster board, painting trim and venetian shutters , electrical work and advice on plumbing issues. I was delighted to find a team that could do all of this and who were also so nice to be around. You won't be disappointed, they are professional and detailed with their work as well.
Joe was our handyman for a renovation of our home in preparation for turning it into an AirBnB rental. The home had recently had full time renters and was in pretty bad shape. He was asked to be an all-around handyman for all kinds of jobs. The first thing he did was to "muck out" the house and the property for us, which he did very well. Then there was general repairs of all kinds: drywall, trim, door knobs, door jams, ceiling fan replacement, blinds measuring and installation for entire house, flooring removal (carpeting in bedrooms), stain and odor removal (bedrooms), new flooring install, toilet repacement, electrical consulting, plumbing consulting, window consulting, and exterior consulting. He was extremely well versed in all aspects of the project. He also showed us ways to save money and do things on a tight budget. He was punctual, worked hard all day, and had a good attitude about changes to the project and was flexible with schedule changes. Then, after the home was ready, he helped us find local deals on furnishings and yard care. He is definitely the best hamn dandyman we have ever had! We highly recommend him and his work, but be forewarned - he tells it like it is and will be honest and straight forward - we especially appreciated this about him. And we will definitely use his services again!
2013 Global Prevention Services in Phoenix, Arizona, had the instruction to restore our home which was partly damaged by water and mold. Parts of walls, floors, kitchen-and bath furniture plus various installations needed to be replaced. We, the owners, live overseas and had neither influence nor ways of control to overlook the forthcoming progress concerning the project, but GPS has proven to be reliable. GPS's estimates were more reasonable in comparison to other companies. All issues like; perfect timing, well trained friendly leading personnel and correct accounts are agenda. Global Prevention Services passed professional inspection and brought full satisfaction to us. Without doubts we can recommend this trustworthy company.
Needed a toilet replaced. Quick response and did good job. Thanks
David did an amazing job on my kitchen backsplash. Highly recommend!!!
We added a master closet/dressing room and updated a full and half-bath plus updated the look throughout the house. Joi managed the project and trades. She designed the new space beautifully and decorated to our taste with fabulous materials and colors. We are going to do another project with her and I would not hesitate to recommend her.
Moe did a phenomenal job on my long list of to do items for my home. Everything from fixing a dryer to fixing a leaky bath faucet to ripping out a pool fence he did. He kept me up to date with his arrival time, and I couldn’t ask for a better value. We will be calling Moe when it’s time for renovations!
We have worked with Carson Rodgers on four projects. A complete master bath remodel, a complete kitchen remodel, a complete secondary bath remodel, and an exterior maintenance rebuild of the patio cover area. The two baths were each about 60 days, with the kitchen remodel taking 90+ days. We enjoyed working with Carson on these projects because of his communication skills of keeping us in the loop as to what was going on and when various phases were going to be completed. While remodeling will always produce some surprises, Carson was always on top of them and walked us through how they were going to be resolved. The quality of work both in the design phase and construction was outstanding. The most significant delay that we experienced with all three remodels was with the plumbing fixtures - whatever availability times we were given when the orders were placed could be tripled. We will use Carson Rodgers on any future projects and have recommended him to friends and neighbors.
Alin converted a computer room to a half-bath and storage area. Their work was good but the timing of the project was poor. Work was not done in the time promised Workers appeared only after finished with their othe jobs. A promised 4 day job took 2 weeks. Communication was always initiated by myself. Phone calls not always returned. Alin and his workers were polite and cooperative when they were there. I would recommend them with a caution about completion of the project when promised.
We hired S&R builders to do a kitchen and master bathroom/closet renovation that we had a strict budget for. They did such a great job with our initial request that we kept adding to our project list, and they were eager to help and offered stellar pricing!! They did our entire remodel from demoing walls, reframing and texturizing, moving and adding of plumbing, moving and adding of electrical, shower tiling, kitchen backsplash, and facilitated the installation of our countertops. We are very pleased with the outcome. It turned out better than we imagined and we will definitely be recommending them to our friends!!
Redo of the master bath: Leonel, the owner, came and explained all the options clearly. His price was $4,000 less than any other so I was suspicious. I shouldn't have been.XLT gave me exactly what I wanted. He was always available for a call at anytime before and during the work.Everything he said would be done was done as promised. His crew was just super nice and listened to me when I wanted small changes. They also did a few extra things. They were very neat and fast! I would always use XLT for any inside work that I had!! I'm very happy that I used them.
Working with Ali has been a pleasure. Ali and his crew remodeled a two bedroom/ two bathroom casita for us The job took about three months. Many small things add up, but first I would like to say he always calls back and he comes when he says he will. His prices were very reasonable. Whenever little problems (and these were few and little) came up, he worked with us to come up with speedy and if needed, lovely and creative solutions. For example, we rearranged rooms beneath a skylight that we did not want to remove and Ali came up with a nice way to frame it for one room and then added lovely tiles around that frame. If we did not like something, he was willing to redo it, and if he thought the problem was his, he did not charge us extra. He often noticed things that needed attention and took care of them. If they were big jobs, he gave me a cost estimate. If they were small he just did them and did not add to our contracted agreement. I think the most amazing thing he did was to build a small retaining wall for us where there was some erosion, so that access to the casita was safer. This was an add-on at the very end of the project. It was lovely. Unfortunately, the next week, the pool man washed away all the dirt behind the wall. Ali came and looked at it and re-back-filled within two days. He could even smile about the idiocy. Something I have not yet achieved. I really enjoyed working with Ali and his crew and I hope they will continue to work on other projects that we will inevitably have here in and out of the house.
We were indecisive about moving from our long time family home where we raised our family UNTIL we saw this home DK Builders was building. Danial Keenan ALWAYS took my call even when he was busy. Our home closed when it was scheduled to close as well. We have enjoyed working with Danial Keenan and would highly recommend him as a builder! We all ready have! Not only do we have a home we love but we also have forever friends with DK Builders and his family!! Thank you DK Builders!!
It was an all the way around great experience.
Urban gave us a fair quote and showed up right on time. He installed four ceiling fans and two kitchen pendant lights under the time estimated. His work was professional and impeccable. Urban took the time to answer all our questions and couldn't have been nicer or more knowledgeable. I would hire him again in a minute! Very pleased with the whole experience.
