John worked with me on renovating my rental house. Fantastic work that was done quickly and within our budget. It was nearly a whole house renovation - painting, refinishing the wood floors, complete bathroom renovation, replacing some doors and some other smaller things. I was losing faith in contractors who stood me up or never showed... John's work is top notch, end to end. And he was in touch constantly, even sending progress pictures, which I absolutely appreciated! We will definitely be coming to him again for work on our other homes.

John installed two doors at my house this week. He did a great professional job. These were not standard door sizes and the originals had not been put in very well so he had to make any number of adjustments. He explained what we could do whenever he needed to and was just an easy person to deal with in general.

John and his assistant did a fantastic job in my basement. He even fixed a few things that were not part of our initial agreement. If you want a fast and clean job in a fraction of what other contractors charge, he is your guy. Highly recommended.

I didnt have Mark handle my issue BUT his professionalism in inquiring about my needs was beyond expectations. I was learly utilizing thumbtack for handyman services but Marks knowledge, pricing and professionalism on the phone was definitely leading me to book him for my plumbing issue. If i have an issue in the future, I'd definitely look for his expertise.

“Finding an honest hard-working contractor who really has pride in his work is sadly the exception, rather than the rule. Mr. Falcone and his company exceeded our expectations as to both the quality of the workmanship and cost of the project. The cost and scope of the work were explained up front, and we were kept advised, each step of the way, as to what to expect next. We were always kept “in the loop” and are exceedingly satisfied with the quality of the renovations performed. We now have an office environment that we are very proud of and which is both warm and professional; the two goals which we had from the very beginning of the project. I would highly recommend Mr. Falcone and his company to any business looking to renovate their office in a cost-effective, timely and professional manner.” – Howard S.

Stucco repair & paint on exterior of home was completed. Work was professional and nicely done in estimated time. Some anticipated repairs could not be completed due to condition of original patch work. Workers arrived each day at 8AM. Landscaping suffered.

Mark (owner) has done several roof and siding jobs for me, but he has a genius for finding simple solutions to those one-of-a-kind problems and projects that you just can't figure out. I've explained problems to 4 or 5 contractors or handymen, who have to think about it so long it never happens. Mark always has an instantaneous and inexpensive idea that works. One trip to Home Depot and done. Examples of solutions: directing ambient heat from the furnace room into other spaces (about $45 in materials); diverting water with odd drainage routes around the house (under $20 materials); building a quick vine support in the garden (about $35); and so on. He works until the work is done -- sometimes finishing in the dark wearing a headlamp -- and he cleans up after himself. I first hired him for roof and siding, but now rely on him for all kinds of jobs, large and small.

My wife and I reached out to over a dozen companies trying to find someone to come out and make a small repair to the front of our home. We were usually ignored completely or told the job was too small for them to be bothered with. So we were incredibly happy when we finally found Mark of Ace & Sons Construction, who not only quickly responded to our inquiry but immediately fit us onto his schedule, came out and did a great job. We were very happy with his work and would absolutely recommend him to anyone looking to have work done on their home.

arrived and provided an estimate, started punctually, completed a difficult project (removing aluminum siding) that others would not tackle, and replaced original siding w/o damage, made repairs and improvements and stuck to the estimate; cleaned up and removed debris, Mark Lis restored my faith in dealing with contractors- I would recommend Lis Improvements- with more stars if available. A long delayed project completed to satisfaction

I was greatly in need of landscaping work. My backyard was overcrowded with weeds and trees, very overwhelming to me. Signature Contractors came in right away to cut down two cedar trees, removed at least five tree stumps, pulled weeds by their root and removed overgrown ivy. They tilled a large area with ivy,removed the roots and spread new topsoil for a future flower garden. Each day they hauled away all the trash and raked the area. I was overly pleased will their goal to satisfy which was exceeded. Annette worked steadily with the men pulling the roots and stacking limbs! I would readily recommend them for service. Thank you Signature. I can see out of my back fence and my yard is now peaceful!

Signature Builders came to install a new sliding glass door for me. I was extremely satisfied with the service, knowledge and workmanship of my contractors. I purchased the wrong door, in error; they went above and beyond to ensure I was pleased with my door. They even came out on Christmas eve because I needed my door replaced asap. I have found "my" contractor from here on out. I highly recommend using this company. My contractor was accessible, affordable and professional.

DRA is a Class Act. We had them inspect several windows to determine what needed to be done. They replaced a few windows in a very timely manner, Not to mention they showed up on time and kept their work area very clean. I've had a lot of experience with Contractors as I am a Contractor myself and I can honestly say DRA did a fantastic job from start to finish. I'll only be using them for any window needs from this point on. Thanks guys.

French Doors were installed perfectly, even though the doors were bigger than the doors the original contractor installed. Dave is extremely professional, arrives on time & is very upfront about the cost. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a very reliable contractor who gets the job done in a very timely and professional manner. Can't wait for him to help me with my next project! Great job Dave:-)))

I recently purchased my first home, a fixer upper that needed significant renovations. I didn't want to go through the daunting task of looking for a contractor and asked a friend for a referral. Joel came highly recommended and when we met for our consultation, I was certain I had found the person and company to allay my fears and meet my expectations. The work was completed on time, and surprisingly, within budget. The finished product is outstanding and every time I walk into my new home I am thrilled.

Absolutely fantastic!! Was able to come and do an estimate on a Sunday, start the work Monday and put up a beautiful wall, fully finished, painted in a short time! He even fixed a couple of other things for us while he was there. He allowed us to used his lockbox so our other contractors could be self sufficient too. Felt like we had a true partner in this effort. Will surely be using advanced construction design again! In fact, were already brainstorming on what's next!

We discovered mold in the basement wall and underneath laminate floor few weeks after we moved into our new house. Unfortunately this was missed by the home inspector. We had redo the full basement (1350 sq ft). This included dry wall, new ceramic tile, fireplace, theatre room, electrical work etc. Tim helped us during this painful times. He was able to find the source of the problem (water leak) which I think needed a lot patience and detective work. He always gave us a honest opinion and has a vast wealth of knowledge that you can not get on the internet. Not only is he pleasant and personable, but a stickler for perfection. He followed up on every last detail until the job was completed. The result was outstanding as we now have a basement with a very modern look. Since then we used his services numerous times and also refered him to my friends who shared a similar opinion.

I needed my range hood replaced & I wanted it vented outside the home. Tim & co-worker Rich were meticulous from start to finish. Two cabinets had to come out so the hood would fit properly. They were removed, the crown molding was cut & replaced. Everything looks great! Two of the nicest contractors I've ever met. If you want quality workmanship, a job done right, you need to make a call...but hurry. I've got a feeling their going to be very busy:-)

Wood working, painting, replacing doors, laying tile, building custom doors and replacing a deck and a custom built gate.I highly recommend him and he was left working in the house alone or with a helper and is trustworthy.

Not one thing he did gave us a bit of concern, question or aggravation.He is very skilled and does beautiful work at reasonable prices.You will love him!

Yuksel, took on my project which was a difficult one to begin with. It was a water damaged rental. He had to repair and replace drywall, cabinets and flooring. Yuksel, while repairing the flooring discovered the back half of my home was rotted out with termites. Yuksel contacted me immediately, gave me an immediate estimate on the extra work and put his plan into action. He completed my job in a reasonable amount of time (even witht the extra work) at a region able price and the job is beautiful. Yuk sell went above and beyond and did not gauge me. Thank you Yuksel, I would hire you again for any project.

Yuksi charged me a fair price and completed the work in a professional manner. Additionally, Yuksi became a general contractor for me - helping to complete projects both in and outside the house. I would hire him again without reservation. Yuksi is dependable and extremely talented!

Rich helped us with our kitchen remodel project in our town home in West Chester, Pennsylvania. The project included removal of half of a wall, and installation of ceramic tile flooring, hardwood cabinets, and appliances, including all accompanying electrical and plumbing work. The job is still in progress, as we are waiting on additional parts to be delivered from the cabinet company. Rich is very flexible and easy to work with. He was able to answer any questions we had about the project and provide advice from his professional experience. Overall, Rich was a polite and trustworthy guy who has been a pleasure to work with. His prices are fair and from what we have seen so far, the quality of his work is excellent.

Rich Higgins of The House Mechanix did two projects for us. The first was to install a sliding shower door that we purchased. He did a very professional job. We hired him again for a second project that included a long list of interior repairs. They included patching ceiling and wall drywall, priming and painting, and a large number of miscellaneous handyman items. We are very satisfied with his pricing and quality of work. We also found him very ethical and easy to deal with. Steve McEvoy West Chester, PA

Dear Rebolledo's Construction Company, Jeovonie,Martin and Martin Jr. I Am writing to convey my appreciation and thanks for the wonderful performance by Your Family company. Your Family owned business was everything I had hoped for when I selected a general contractor. The attention to detail, professionalism and quality of workmanship is evident throughout. You covered up everything upon doing all work, and you cleaned up every day also placing everything to its proper place. You were on time every day and let me know how close you were to my home, so I and my dogs could go upstairs while you newly renovated my downstairs. A special thanks for picking up all the materials to complete my project. Especially the flooring, which you had to drive at least an hour out of your way to get. My Bellawood Flooring you put in is absolutely gorgeous, And my ceramic tile in my kitchen is flawless, as well as the painting and all the drywall/wallboard you replaced in my house. The plumbing in the kitchen is impeccable, as well as the repair you did in the bathroom. A special thanks in getting to know my 4 Boxer Dogs that were full of high energy, and being so patient with them and me as they would run down the steps like a herd of elephants out the door in the yard to go to the bathroom. It was a pleasure to work with you and your family and I look forward to working with your company again on future projects. Thank you again and please know that I would be happy in referring your Company to everyone. As I look around at everything you have done, I see a dedicated family owned Business, that treats everything as if it were their own. Also it is great to have my contractors as my Facebook friends !!! KUDOS FOR A JOB WELL DONE👍👍👍👍👍👍👍

We had a roof leak that caused drywall and hardwood floor damage. Excellent painters and did a good job with vinyl flooring. The family contractors did a great job at a reasonable price. Everything was restored to good as new. They are very hard and efficient workers. Very polite, start early and finish late. Maintain a very clean work area. They removed all trash and left a very orderly work area each day. We definitely would hire them again and recommend them to others.

The father and sons are polite, conscientious, and honest. They are punctual and hard working. They keep the work area clean and they do quality work. They do not skimp on material or labor. They are totally opposite of the contractor we dismissed (not one advertised on thumbtack). The Rebolledos completed a bathroom renovation and are in the midst of converting a screened porch into a living space for us. We recommend them without reservation.

We needed stonework done on the monument that holds our community sign. Found David Chambers on, all of places, on an internet search. (Had a mason lined up, but found he didn't have a Delaware license). Mr. Chambers contacted me, we met, discussed the job, he provided us a fair price, made some suggestions, so we hired him. What I really liked about this gentleman was that whenever I'd "message" him on my phone, he got back to me in a reasonable period of time, sometimes right away. We had product to order, so the job took about 3 to 4 weeks I believe from beginning to end. He notified me when he would be here to actually do the job and was on time. Met him at the site, we chatted while he worked. When he was done, I personally was very pleased with his work, our monument looks a thousand times better and he left the area around it spotless! Cleaned up all the masonry debris and even racked the mulch back into place. I would highly recommend David Chambers to anyone in need of any sort of maintenance work done. The man is a true professional. Patricia Reinbold President, HOA Garrison Lake Green Smyrna, DE

Donald was quick to respond with a very reasonable quote. When he came out to take measurements and get a material list, I had him take a look at a few more things, which he gave me a fair price for as well. He was very professional and honest, he did everything he said he was going to do, for the price he initially quoted. No nonsense after the work began, and he warrantied his work for 2 years. I'm happy with the job he did, and I'm going to be using him for future projects at the house.

I had a great experience with Solid construction! We reached out to multiple firms for quotes on Monday, and we needed the work done within the week. Anatoly responded right away, met up with us on Tuesday, gave us a quote immediately, and started working on Wednesday at 8am. Wednesday evening we went to look at his work, and the quality was superb. It was flawless and beautiful, and he took care to protect our place so there were no random drops of paint (found from previous painters we've worked with). We even decided that we wanted to change the color on the accent walls, which I know throws a wrench in the project and schedule. We emailed Anatoly at 11pm, and he promptly made the change and started with new colors the next morning. We are waiting for the project to be completed (by tomorrow), but we are so impressed with his responsiveness, quality of work, and customer service in general, that I couldn't wait to write him a review. I would hire Tom again in a heartbeat, and I would recommend him to everyone I know. He is such a professional who does great work and is a pleasure to work with. Thanks, Anatoly!! If I could give Tom 10 stars, I would.
