Painted exterior of house & one bedroom. They did a great job. Showed up as scheduled & we're very professional.
Adrian did an amazing job painting and glazing/antiquing our oak cabinets! He also put new hinges and hardware on. We will be using him next for our fireplace remodel.
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.
Herb and his crew just finished building and installing two huge cornices for our new home. They are very nice, and we especially appreciate the time and consideration Herb afforded us to hear exactly what we wanted and the obstacles he needed to,work around. Their eye for detail is also evident. We are very pleased and recommend him highly. Very, very nice!
He build us a backyard pergola. He was fast and good. His employees were also very nice guys. He took permits to get approved by city for us. I loved that he didn't waste anytime. The quality of the work was great. Things he didn't do, he gave us great referrals! I would use him again!
Fantastic work on our custom, built in, bookshelf (19ft x 11ft). Great communication during the planning phase ensuring he was building exactly what we pictured. Very punctual, professional, and the finished product was better than what I imagined. Highly recommend.
These guys tackled a tough job and left the house exceptionally clean. We bought a home intending to remodel. We wanted to remove two columns and discovered the house was not build to the plans. We had an engineer provide a fix with details and load calcs, but that required removing a glulam and replacing with a larger one -- and my family has already moved in. I put up plastic everywhere, but it turns out I probably didn't need it. As one cut drywall, another held a vacuum to catch all the dust. Every time they created sawdust with the planer or a saw, and every time insulation fell through the ceiling crack, they cleaned it up right away, so it never got airborne and spread thorough the house. They installed it exactly to specifications and even addressed a couple unrelated issues without being asked. We expected it to take 6 hours, they were done in 4. I think the bid was high, but they were ready to go and I needed it done right away. After seeing the care they took, I think it was worth the price. Btw, I messed up ordering the beam, so Alfredo had to arrange to have a team come at a later date without him. They came in the afternoon when they had finished their day-jobs. Alfredo arrived as they finished to walk through and get paid.
Luis & his company are GREAT! Not only did they do an amazing job, but they also were able to schedule our project fast so we could continue with our house remodel! He is now our go to "handyman" for all our house remodel needs!!
Nicolas built us our island and wine rack. He is very meticulous in building and listens to what you want and then builds it. Our island was just a brief sketch along with our wine rack and we love the end results. I highly recommend Nicolas for your building needs. You will be very satisfied with his work and get your expectations met and some!
Michael did a fantastic job with our whole kitchen remodel - his prices were great and his final product is something we see everyday and are just so happy we chose him. We were so impressed with his knowledge and vast resources - we were pleasantly surprised - it was our first time using thumbtack and his services. We kept wishing we had more projects for him to tackle. He was a huge part of our success.
Ryan has worked on several projects in our new home ranging from electrical work, installation of lighting fixtures to building book cases and a fireplace. We are am very pleased with how everything turned out and Ryan is easy to talk to and work with.
This was our first foray into custom furniture building, and because of Paul, it won't be our last. I'm incredibly picky and know what I like, but can't always articulate it. We met with Paul, give him a short description of what we like, and lo and behold, a week later, he comes back with a design that absolutely encapsulates what I wanted. The install went perfectly, and the end result is even better than I could've imagined. The design is sleek, smart, and stunning. So much artistry and technicality combined, with excellent attention to detail. We absolutely love it, and loved working with Paul. He is one cool dude, with an interesting background, and immense talent, and someone we want to be friends with, after this project completion. He has such good energy. Highest recommendation! and hopefully, we will find another project to collaborate on soon!
After talking to 5 different sources to build an In-law suite on our home, I chose Duke Dumont. Stuart Price was the GC. He was informative, honest, caring and my choice from the very beginning even though the quote was more than we could afford. He was the only one who gave us a start to finish option. He worked with us to get as much as we could with our funding and advised us on the contractors WE brought in. Even advising against one that was way over priced! He took care of MORE than was expected and stuck with us to the end, even though he was only responsible to the dry wall. I can't say enough about the quality of the people who built our room, they were honest and cared about the job they did for us!! I would and HAVE told people about Stuart and Duke Dumont.
Very very very fast quality work! Within 2 days of our request to Thumbtack for crown molding and additional finnishing work for our home the job was done! Alfredo works with a great network of building professionals who offered my husband and I great DIY tips. Very professional and we WILL hire him again for future projects.
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!!
I have known Justin since our art school days in Kansas City. I'll never forget waiting in line to use the table saw and he asked me if I enjoyed woodwork. His knowing grin certainly confirmed that he sure loved it! Countless hours spent around the tools and many collaborations later I have learned what truly makes him tick : good design, proper technique, and a job well done. Take our recent culmination of building out his sister's business Eleanor's Coffee Bar and Market for example. Under Justin's thoughtful direction, the space was transformed into a thriving business with a sophisticated and contemporary look. From the placement of the walls to the quarter sawn oak counters and custom shelving systems, his attention to detail and timely execution is impeccable! From what I have seen of Justin's artistic fabricating talents, cultivated intuitions and overall integrity, I can honestly say he is an extreme asset on any job! I look forward to working with him for years to come.
The skill and attention to detail that Charley took in the construction of a 2.5 car garage attached to our newly built home is very impressive. He takes pride in a job well done---from concrete to siding, to roofing. Afterwards, we wish he had been available to take part in a greater portion of our home build. He left the area spotless, unlike the other contractors who left nails, staples, trash, and boards strewn all over, It may be their work space today, but later, our grandchildren's safety was a concern. In addition, to create a quality project, Charley often fixed the poor install of others, especially if it affected the integrity of his project. He always kept us apprised of any issues and stayed on schedule. We are very pleased with his work and would recommend him as someone who still believes in quality and exceptional customer service.
Joe has done many projects for me including putting in doors, garbage disposal, sink faucets, ceiling fans, building custom shelving, and laying laminate flooring. There isn't much he can't do. His jobs are always done perfectly. He is a superior craftsman who takes a lot of pride in his work. JOE HAS MY HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION!
