Rob arrived on time, with all the right equipment, and was extremely professional. His attention to detail and desire to get the job done right is exactly what you're looking for when you hire a contractor but often rarely get it. I highly recommend TTS for your home theater installation!

Kevin installed two recessed cans in my basement theater. The work was done as expected and in a timely manner. He also made sure to clean up the debris from the install. What I appreciated most about Kevin is that he patiently answered all of my questions about this job and electrical work in general. I am very happy with the job and the education that I received!

I have been witness to the level of knowledge and experience of V-TecProStop on several occasions. V-TecProStop built a computer for me when my old PC was proving to be insufficient for my needs, saving me hundreds of dollars in the process. Also, when I had problems with my laptop, while out of town, V-TecProStop remotely diagnosed and corrected those issues. When I found out V-TecProStop's services extend beyond just computers, I had them install a home audio system. The work was done efficiently and professionally, and has resulted in a theater-like experience whenever we watch movies at home. I have been so satisfied with the jobs V-TecProStop has done with my computers and audio system, next I will be using their services to install a security system.

Clement was amazing! I recently purchased a home and have had a lot (7!) of contractors coming and going over the past couple of weeks. Clement was one of the couple who truly cared about delivering high quality craftsmanship at an extremely fair price. I initially hired him to install a new dryer plug, but because great job he did, I asked him to correct electrical mistakes that a previous contractor did with my ceiling fan. I was extremely impressed with his knowledge of the networking and home theater set up. He took time to make sure that everything was perfect (even coming back another day to make sure that he had the wall plate in place after patching a hole). Because of his attention to detail, trustworthiness, and his willingness to answer my questions, he is now my electrician of choice. I HIGHLY recommend that you hire Clement for all of your electrical needs.

Contacted SJS to install laminate floors in my main living room. He did a really good job. I also added other projects along the way such as a ceiling fan, light fixture, small furniture assembly, and I even called last minute for a electric dryer install & he was able to accommodate me short notice.. I will more than likely hire SJS again for some future projects

Our experience with Mr. James and his team was very pleasant. All of the guys were very knowledgeable and professional. They handled all permits and inspections necessary to complete the project. We noticed an infestation of mold growth in one of our properties. We were already contemplating remodeling this area of the basement anyway. We decided to not only remediate the mold but also to hang new drywall throughout the entire basement, install about 13 recessed lights with smart motion switches, slate tile flooring, and rough in and install a full bath in the space. James came in and offered my husband and I a lot of different options to reach our desired goal beyond the mold remediation. He also did the bathroom design, and suggested some beautiful tile combinations and we loved them all. In short we decided to go with James to do the work and the project went flawless. Very professional, clean within reason during a renovation, and very organized and personable. He kept us informed at every stage and there were no surprises. They completed the project in about10 days including county inspections. James followed up with us a month after the job was completed to make sure that everything ok. Great customer service!! We will definitely be using Unlimited Resources in the near future and have recommended James and his team to several people already.

The team is great! They did such an amazing job fixing our small odd ball jobs (cutting/ capping water pipes in our MB; adding recessed lighting;oving electrical outlets and repairing holes in our drywall.) They did such an amazing job fixing the eyesores, you are not able to tell there used to be a sink in the bedroom or entertainment center in the family room. We definitely recommend JJ Contracting Services LLC. We will use them for all of our remodeling projects.

Back in January (2017), my husband and I hired Andre at Traylor Design and Construction to renovate our kitchen. We had already sourced the materials that we wanted to use—new appliances, new cabinets, new flooring, new backsplash and countertops—but we had decided we wanted to hire an experienced contractor rather than to try to do it ourselves. I couldn’t be happier with the results. Andre was professional and personable in every interaction, and his crew was polite, clean, and skilled. We had several little hiccups (we have an old house—some pipes were not where we were expecting them to be when we tore out the cabinets) but they addressed and overcame them quickly and with quality work. Andre was happy to work with any materials or designs I provided but offered another recommendation for sourcing our granite countertops. His recommendation saved my husband and I $200, improved the quality of the countertop we were going to receive, and shortened the order-to-installation time by over a week (at least). Andre and his crew even recommended small design tweaks that would make the kitchen look better. Considering I am not an interior designer by any means, these recommendations were welcomed. I’ve heard horror stories of kitchen renovations dragging on for weeks (or months!) and constantly creeping higher and higher in cost—that was a huge concern of mine when selecting a contractor. Andre and his crew stuck to the budget and completed everything within 2 weeks! We will definitely hire them again for future projects.

5th Gen Group was incredible. Christian quickly replied to my request, set an appointment to come over, was on time, could completely understand what I was looking for. He is different, thinks out of the box, creative and artistic. He leaves room to make adjustments as you go so that the project progresses from nice to spectacular. He enjoys making the project just a little bit different, he is an artist. While he was here I pointed out other items that needed attention and he was open to look at them and work them into this visit. How grateful I am for that. He was interested in re-purposing parts of the job such as installing a door we took down and putting it elsewhere in the house. He installed new windows, broke down walls, re-built walls, installed new pocket doors, replaced tile He helped with suggestions and installing fantastic new gym flooring and hung the mirrors. He and Jess, his partner, make the process easy. His crew with Hector at the helm (he became known to me as "Super Boy" and that says it all) is prompt, polite, clean, professional and very impressive. I am so thrilled that I found 5th Gen Group. I will use no other.

Dmitry was fabulous. He was able to come to my home within a few hours of sending out the Thumbtack inquiry. He was very courteous and explained everything, managing to make a complete IT neophyte like me not feel out of my depth. He connected some of my devices, ran diagnostics on my hard drive-- getting rid some 'nasties', suggested some (free) virus protection, and gave some suggestions on how to speed up my computer' processing speed. His quote was really reasonable and I would absolutely hire him again. ⭐️⭐️

We hired Shane to add a bedroom in our already finished basement. He won the bid on price, but also because he had really good ideas about how to reconfigure the space, which made it much more useful, and also attractive. He added a built-in shelf to one area, which is really beautiful and enhances the space tremendously. Based on Shane's work in the basement, we hired him to tear a wall out in our dining room, and add a door to another room in order to create a home office. We are planning to continue with more renovations, and intend to hire J&S for everything. They are easy to work with, and communicate clearly about changes of scope, and any issues that come up. We are very happy with the quality of the work as well.

If you're in need of professional electrical work, run (don't walk) to Herman with A+ Integration. We hired him to install a designer ceiling fan in our master bedroom this weekend. He was straightforward, providing us with both a fair quote and his availability within minutes of my project request. On the installation day, he arrived on time and with the necessary materials to complete the installation in a clean manner (i.e. ladder, blanket for floor, tools, etc.) Not only did he do a great job installing the fan, but he went above and beyond, making sure to add in extra insulation to the wiring and testing the fan to make sure it was balanced. These were extra steps he went through to ensure the installation was done properly and safely. He also walked us through the process the entire time and gave us instructions on how to use our dimmer and remote. My experience with him was so great that I plan on hiring him to help me with some additional lighting and smart home installation (i.e. Nest thermostat and doorbell) needs in the next few weeks.

The team at Winthorpe Design & Build has helped me renovate my entire house over a period of three and a half years. With their help and Krag’s excellent design ideas, we came up with a creative plan for my home and broke it down into three phases. They worked with me through the entire project to help tweek and improve the overall project. I realize that the construction process isn’t always smooth, but when issues or questions would come up, they would discuss my options with me and resolve them quickly. I could not be happier with the final project, it turned out exactly as I dreamed. The Winthorpe team is made up of true professionals and I would not hesitate to recommend them.

We want you to know how happy we are with the two projects you completed for us. The built-ins and the TV cabinet are absolutely perfect in both design and construction. We take great pride especially in showing off the TV cabinet which exudes a powerful WOW-factor. ..a very creative design that is more like a work of art than a storage cabinet. You are a true craftsman and a pleasure to work with.
