The work that was done (so far) seems to have been done very well. While it did take a long time for SmcExteriors to come out to our place, the perceived quality of the craftsmanship and the price was well worth the wait, and the only reason (I believe) it took as long as it did to do the repair is because it was a relatively small job outside of their usual area of business, so if it were a bigger job it may have had some more urgency. But the most important thing to take away from this review is quality with price: SmcExteriors did this repair between five to ten times less than other contractors with the same care. Most contractors wanted to charge close to $500 to replace one 10ft panel of fascia. Steve was down to earth, charged a more-than-reasonable amount, and really wanted our business. If we ever need another job done, I won't hesitate to get in touch with Steve.

Grandview Construction put in a new microwave and vented it to the outside. They did an excellent job. The vent goes through the existing cabinet and out the top. They built a box to hide the pipe that matches the cabinets very well. They also replaced two lights for us. We would hire them again and recommend them to others.

I had 2 toilets replaced and 3 faucets installed. Greg did an excellent job and his prices were reasonable. He even uses a new tarp for each home he works on and cleaned up everything. He is very knowledgeable and shared information regarding my existing plumbing. I am keeping his card and will recommend him to anyone I know who needs a plumber. Best experience I have ever had with a plumber.

My experience with Bob and Rusty was very good. I gave them the contract to repair siding and paint my house, rebuild the deck, and install Vinyl flooring in my laundry room and basement stairs. Bob and Rusty told me that instead of rebuilding the deck, they could use the existing frame, and extend it like I had wanted and they only had to rebuild the railing, steps and put the new deck floor. I saved at least $1500 doing it this way. Rusty even built me planters out of a $10 gutter, painted it and fixed it to the railing on the new deck...for free. The Handymen are very ethical in how they conduct their business. The project took longer than expected on account of a few rain days. While I felt that they could have worked a few extra hours to compensate for the rain outs, the end result is a completely "refreshed" house with upgrades. My neighbors kept telling me how much they liked the new paint job, the deck and the extra "features" (Planters). I will be hiring the Handymen back for other jobs in the future. They are quite personable and care about the quality of their work. Repeat business is very important to them, and I intend to give them just that. All in all a solid 5/5 rating!

Jeff did an excellent job refurbishing the bathroom walls and installing a new faucet. He tore out the old sheetrock, cleaned up all the mess, put on new ceramic tile on all three sides of the bathtub wall and it was all done at a fair price. It looks amazing! Jeff communicated openly with his recommendations, was very professional, trustworthy in completing what he quoted and I highly commend him on his attention to detail. Though he discovered throughout the job that the house is not square, straight nor level; he had no problem making the necessary adjustments needed so it now looks like it is. He finished the job in a timely manner with no delays, and we would highly recommend him for any full remodeling or home improvement jobs. I will definitely be using Jeff in the near future for other upgrades that I plan to do.

Michael has worked on multiple projects for us over the past 4 years ,ranging from building new decks, framing additions and he just completed a major home remodel. Michael is a very skilled carpenter, especially when it comes to finish work. He has a great work ethic and takes great pride in his work. Michael was very easy to work with, always respectful and always completed the work on time. If any issues came up, he would take care of them. For any future projects, we will continue to use MC Construction Company.

I've been a home builder/general contractor in the Des Moines area for 27 years,and started working with Jason over 3 years ago. He's one of the best carpenters I've been associated with,and his trim and cabinet work are amazing! We've worked together on several projects and have consistently turned out excellent work and satisfied customers. Give Jason and his guys a try-you won't be disappointed.
