The guys did a great job with my baseboards. They were punctual and detail oriented once beginning the task. I am a stickler for "doing the job right", they met my expectations! Upon seeing the quality of their work, I added the job of replacing all my door casings and wall trim to their list. They went and got those materials and came back to add to my modernized house. I will be using them again in the future. Thanks!Jun 25, 2020Verified
We sketched a design for vertical shelving for our art studio. I sent a Thumbtack post for carpentry. Miles Perotte was the only contractor to respond to my ad. He not only gave us a reasonable price, he and his partner were at the job at the exact time he promised, and we (two artists) were thrilled with the final product. I highly recommend this company. By the way, they came from St. Pete all the way to our studio in Sarasota. They were very nice to work with and very professional.Jan 29, 2020Verified

Poor service. Do not hire them! They are the worst! They didn’t finish the project in the time promised. Actually they didn’t even finish my job. They constantly try to blame me for things that they were supposed to do. For example, when I got them hired and they were working on the first permit they claimed that they did the permit (and that we were waiting on the city’s permit approval). Turns out a week later, they said didn’t have the architectural drawings even though I handed them to them myself. I guess they needed bigger copies (how would I know—I hired them to handle all of this) and I had told them the architect’s information that he had them upfront (after consulting my architect) at his office a few miles away. Instead of them going to get them I had to go get them, and then I also had to take them to the city and drive to the county to get additional permits filed and approved. Also this was at my expense when they were supposed to pay for that. It was included in their bid. I’ve never seen that money returned to me either. Then they start the job by tearing out part of my parking lot by my entrance to make a ramp there. They did promising me that they would have an inspector there the same day so that it could get finished before business a couple days later (they pulled it out before the weekend). And guess what happened? They didn’t get approval for over a week so my customers were tracking in all this dirt and walking through a construction zone to enter my business which was not safe! So then they have an electrician put in an electronic door opener for handicap access and my buttons don’t even work to open the door. The project manager had to come a few days later to fix it which only worked temporarily. We called again and eventually the owner’s son came and tried to fix it again which only lasted a day or two. He was completely unprofessional walking in and keeping his earbuds in when he’s trying to talk to us and taking off his flip-flops in my waiting room walking around in his socks. Regardless now it’s months later and we’ve left multiple messages with them and had many empty promises for them to come fix this button issue not working. There’s been at least five times they have promised to do it and did not show up. Yesterday we called and talked to the owner’s son again named Miles and he promised that he would be out today at 10 AM to show us how to reprogram it if it lost a signal so that the buttons could work. It is now 10:30 and we’ve been waiting for him all morning and he doesn’t even have the courtesy to call us and tell us he’s not coming. To top it off, yesterday during the phone conversation where we were asking why they won’t fix this or keep their appointments, in the middle of the conversation he said he’s recording it—which he didn’t tell us prior, or get our consent, which is a felony. Also backing up, when they put our railings up they blocked our mailbox slot and never came to fix that. They never consulted us about this and we had to hire somebody to cut the railing shorter so we could get our mail. He’s people are scam artists and should not have their license. I will report them now to the county and city so that this doesn’t happen to other people.Feb 8, 2020VerifiedPerotte’s Enterprises's reply
Our original quote for this project request came in at about 14,000 dollars to provide and install a brand new automatic handicap front door and 3 buttons along with a remote, yes a Bluetooth remote that opens the automatic door along with removal of old concrete and adding a handicap ramp for customer access. Mrs Hayes expressed how the price was a bit to high for their budget, I then advised them I’ll come down on the price but I would have to go with a more cost efficient Door opener and buttons to accommodate their budget. I was able to bring the price down to 10,500 by switching the hard wiring handicap access buttons to Bluetooth wireless receivers that didn’t require addition electrical lines ran to each button which saved customer lots of money. Unfortunately Bluetooth receivers require batteries to be change and also they may loose signal. My field supervisor showed client how to reconnect buttons if in an event it failed also how to replace batteries after we received a call back regarding one of the buttons. Months later another button went out, that’s when I myself made another field visit free of charge to program and explain the pairing process to client yet again. We are overloaded with work at this time and client is expecting us to show up every time to pair buttons or change batteries which was made clear would have to be done time to time unless they will like to pay for everything to be hard wired.. Please advise we are contractors our main goal is to make sure you pass your Inspection! Which they did. I would love to have extra time to pop up when client says jump and fix things but we do have new and other clients to keep happy as well. If you provide your OWN architecture, it’s your job to conduct business with them to obtain proper drawings to pass along to the Contractor. Client was advised twice that the drawing provided would not work for city approval. I made a special visit to return drawing to client and request an updated stamped drawing from architect which they couldn’t provide and they asked me to make contact with architect(not a contractors job). After a few failed attempts at contacting the architect we finally made contact and were told, they were unaware of the project at hand. Customer was also upset at the city for taking a long time to inspect and approve work and took their anger out on us the Contractor, it was really beyond our control. We tried our best to keep this client happy, they also have a pending balance of $200 due til this date when I tried to schedule a date to come out to clear up the loose ends she emailed and stated everything was taking care of now their calling again real loud, rude, and bad attitude to life in general demanding services . Moral of the story stick to yours guns/prices don’t come down to accommodate clients budget charge right get the job done no matter cost so minor mishaps like a dead battery won’t cause a whole nightmare. Client stated she received many compliments for the work done from her customers I will post before and after pictures of this job because I believe everything turned out great!
