    What a lifesaver! Came out on Easter weekend to fix a hose bin that started leaking in the wall. The job was neat and the leak is fixed! I'd recommend Alternative Maintenance Service to anyone!

    Personable guy however, he didn't have the right tools to do the job. He used laundry detergent to try and remove an oil stain on my driveway. It didn't work at all and the pressure washing made no difference.
    Lane A. Feb 22, 2017

    I did this job over a year ago. I have no idea why he is leaving a review now. I am sorry he was dissatisfied. My machine is 3000 PSI AND 210 degrees. I have done over a thousand pressure wash jobs and wound have gladly went back is he called.

    Find someone else
    He didn't have the right tools to do the job and didn't seem to know how to address the problem. He cost me a new kitehen faucet ($190.00) as he unnecessarily cut a line.
    Lane A. Oct 21, 2016

    I treat all of my customer with the up most respect. I told him ahead of time I could not get off the hose and that I would have to cut it off. At that point he could of stopped me and got someone else,but he told me do that I had to do. I am truly sorry he was not satisfied. I did not do anything without is consent. I did what I had to do to get the problem fixed.

    Lane was great! He is very friendly and his prices are extremely reasonable. There was a leak in our sprinkler system. All I knew is that a large amount of water was coming out from a giant bush. Lane came out and (after consulting me) immediately attacked the giant bush. He had to dig and chop for a while before he finally got to the origin of the leak. It turns out one of the pipes were broken and was just pouring out water every time the sprinklers came on. The giant bush was growing into/around the pipes, which ultimately cause the break. Lane put a cap on the pipe so it will no longer leak. We plan on digging up most of the bush so it doesn’t cause future damage. I will definitely have Lane come back out and add a new sprinkler line or dripper system once we figure out what we want to put there in lieu of the bush.

    We had a leaking older sprinkler system that was pretty involved. We've had others look at it that were unable to repair it. Lane came out quickly and on time and repaired the problem for the price quoted. He even returned the next day when the problem we thought it was turned out to be something different. He had a great attitude, was very friendly, and we will definitely be calling him with any other maitenence needs. We were very pleased.

    I was so pleased with Lane. The job I hired him to do was not as big as I was told by two previous contractors. He was thorough and took the time to make sure the job was done right the first time. The quality of his work was excellent. He explained what needed to be replaced and why and answered all of my questions. I would definately hire him again if the opportunity presented itself.

    Verified Review
    I did a search online and found Lane. I decided to go with him because of all the great reviews. He showed up to complete the take down, move and remount of my flat screen TV. I wish I would have had him come take a look at first. I was entirely not thrilled that I needed to assist with taking it off of the wall, bringing it downstairs and attempting to rehang it. Lane ended up having to go knock on my neighbor's door to find someone to help him lift the TV. Certain jobs should be left to slightly younger individuals or you should at least have someone come with you when it involves mounting a TV. Definitely not worth the $75.

He had some suggestions for me to improve the area where I would be using the fitness equipment he was assembling and didn't hesitate to add some extra duties to his tasks. Great job, I'd welcome Lane back any time.
