I got my TV mounted, shelves installed, and replaced a bathroom mirror. He did everything and did everything really fast and showed great detail to his work. He's very nice and very accommodating. I'm definitely calling him for my next home improvement project.
Troy responded within a couple of hours to my request to build a 40' fence. He provided a very attractive quote, picked up all the materials and completed the project all in one morning. I would recommend Troy to anyone with a home improvement project based on my very favorable experience.
Easley Done, Darin, arrived 10 minutes ahead of our 10:00 am appointment at my home. I was just returning home and had not as I'd intended prepared work site for GE cooktop install project. But Erin and assistant Robbie, his son, lost not a beat getting down to opening the boxed new GE and and prepping for removal of old, even applying Mr. Clean to opening that was NOT clean that I should have help clean before inserting my new GE. Both were patient, good-tempered, and congenial; Darin responded to my anxious questions, as he dealt with installation. Perfection! My new ebony GE cooktop installed. I chose the right Pro; Darin Easley is a Handyman among the very best. My kitchen flooring is next.
On time, thorough, nice. Cost more than original quote but I guess that's how most home repair projects go
Nathan was a huge help tackling our annoying toilet. Looking forward to working with him on future home improvement and repair jobs. Thanks Nathan!
They did a great job at a reasonable price! Overall, I have nothing to complain about their service except that the communication with the office manager/ scheduler is a bit spotty at times.
I hired John to work on a number of home improvement projects at first because his rates were very good given the many different types of work he could do and the amount of experience he had. Over time, I found him to be very competent, able to handle anything I threw at him. He built fences, pressure washed the house and decks, repaired and covered our gutters, built walkways through the garden, did careful garden maintenance, did some concrete work, patched our driveway asphalt, and is currently staining our decks now that summer has arrived. He works very hard, has his own tools, needs no supervision and knows how to do just about everything around the house based on his own experience. Which is perfect for me, I want to be able to just say - do this, do that, and have the job get done. John makes that happen. I recommend him highly (AFTER he's finished my decks ;-)
We hired Evolve Construction for the second time, this time for an extensive home remodel (the first job we hired them to do was a single bathroom remodel and it is beautiful!) Evolve was able to offer a competitive price with options that fit our budget. Everyone on the team were very knowledgable about local codes/requirements so inspections were never an issue. The project was completed ahead of schedule (9 weeks) and the project manager was always readily available to keep us posted on progress and answer any questions or concerns we had. Evolve team was professional and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this company for any home improvement project!
Great job installing and programming our security cameras, as well as installing a few outdoor and indoor outlets. I'll be calling for any future electrical work.
Extremely responsive - submitted request late Fri night and he arrived before noon on Saturday. Fixed the problem and some additional issues. Pricing was unclear - I asked for a quote, he said he would provide a free estimate. Then he did the work and told me the amount afterwards, but the amount seemed reasonable for the work.
I had a laundry list of electrical issues from an inspection report that needed to be taken care of. Luie was very professional and friendly. He asked for a copy of the report before he arrived, so that he could be prepared for the job. He brought along his assistant, Joe, who was also professional and friendly. I will say that my house was built in 1965 and has some "creative" handyman-level wiring in it. They did an excellent job of troubleshooting the issues and figuring out the wiring, and even discovering that a mystery switch on the top floor somehow controlled an exterior light on the bottom floor. There was one issue with a set of lights, that I discovered later, that no longer worked after they had fixed everything else. However, Luie sent his assistant out the following week (since he was out of town) and got it fixed. I give huge kudos for this, since I've had issues with other contractors in the past who drag their feet when it comes to remediation work. I highly recommend CGL Electric! It was a professional experience and I'm very happy with the work!
Highly impressed by the timeliness of their response and their seemingly professional diagnostics. Getting an electrician to come to your house in 2016 seems to be as hard as getting a cardiovascular surgeon to make a house call. I take considerable comfort in the 5-year warranty of their work they mentioned.
