We recently purchased a mobile home for my daughter to live in while she attends The Vet program at ISU. I had scheduled two weeks to help her get it cleaned up and painted before she moved in. While cleaning and painting we uncovered water and insect damage around virtually all of the windows that was missed when considering the purchase. Jumped on Thumbtack and within an hour the folks at Top-Flight called and arranged to come by and look at our project. They gave us a quote and agreed to be on site the next day. Well this turned into a much more involved project as we started demolition and they just rolled up their sleves and tackled each issue as they arose. They also honored their original estimate for the work. Their manager, Terry, and his wife worked tirelessly to get this project done and also started work on additional windows. They were very flexible, tolerant of my incursions into what and how things were being done and were able to complete the original project plus start and complete additional windows while I was there. They are good people who work very hard and for us they demonstrated great flexibility with there schedules. I’d recommend them unconditionally for any work like we had done and from spending so much time together I learned they are accomplished in all aspects of building to include demolition, framing, siding, interior walls, electrical, plumbing and many other handyman services. I have done a lot of this type of work in my 60 plus years I can say that you can do much worse, but you won’t find many better than these folks. We are really happy with our choice of Top-Flight for our mobile home repair project.
Dennis is very dependable and skilled contractor. He works quickly and efficiently himself with a smaller jobs maintaining good quality, and his subcontractors are quite well organized by him.
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.
The Grandview Construction crew and Jeremy were an AWESOME group! They repaired my roof, tore down and repaired my fallen in ceiling, treated for mold, put in new insulation, new drywall, textured the walls, new light fixtures, repaired my front deck railing, put in new carpet and so many other little things as well. They were all so pleasant, hard working, and really knew their craft. They were always on time and cleaned up after themselves. I am having them come back in the spring for a few more jobs. They are very reasonably priced and went out of their way to make sure to keep my costs down. I couldnt have picked a better company! These guys have real SKILLS!~ FAdams-Des Moines, Ia.
Danny did a great job on a very involved electrical project. Very competitive in his pricing.
Byron did a great job getting my house ready to sell. Everything from lights to floors. House sd 1st day on the market! He was mindful of budget and deadlines and was always professional and knowledgeable. It was also refreshing to see a contractor care about keeping in contact and being able to be contacted by the customer. I highly recommended Byron!
Installed flat screen. Low tech project and installed as requested.
Jay and his guys provided refinishing of our hardwood floors and trim work for our house we recently purchased. The floor is red oak and they sanded it down to its natural state and finished it with 3 coats of poly. The results were beautiful and we received many awesome comments regarding the floors thus far. I would recommend J&S to anyone. I would also encourage anyone who uses J&S to talk with them thoroughly regarding your project before you start. There were some points during the project where both contractor and client were on a different page however these issues were rectified. Bottomline: great work, customer service-oriented, friendly and fairly priced.
I called in David to replace the sprayer in my kitchen sink. He showed up on time and got to work right away. After working on it for a few minutes he informed me that the faucet was not in the greatest of conditions. he offered to go to Lowe's with me to find the correct replacement. We got one and he stayed late to finish the job. The job was supposed to take 15 - 20 minutes, but David, being a true professional, stayed back for as long as it took to get the job done. I am very happy with his work and look forward to having him do more in the future.
I have a great experience with Side Jobs. They tiled a bathroom shower for me. Andrew did a great job of working with the contractor, ensuring that I was satisfied with the work and that everything was cleaned up afterward. I will use them again for future projects.
I had what seemed to be a mysterious leak causing two large wet spots in front of the vanity on the wall to wall carpet in my small hall bathroom. I called a local plumbing company whose yellow trucks are seen all over town, to assess the problem and fix it. It took.two days before they were able to come out. The two "plumbers" examined the wet carpet for 45 minutes but couldn't find the source of the wetness. Oddly, they refused to pull the carpet back because they said it was not their company's policy to pick up carpet. They left charging me their fee for coming out with no suggestions or solutions to the mysterious spots. Through Thumtack, as a first time user, Dean replied immediately to my request and was able to come out the next day. With the assistance of his very competent helper, Dean immediately identified the source of the leak at the base of the toilet, saying it needed a new seal. He went over to Lowe's and purchased the parts and the job was completed in a very short time. I asked him to pick up the carpet and with an easy straight cut across the carpet at the doorway, I was able to dispose of the wet carpet so the pad can air out to avoid any further mold build up. I'll call upon Dean again to help me have tile laid down to replace the carpet. It is incredible to me that a large plumbing company in the Des Moines Area with their name suggesting high morals could not identify this very common and simple plumbing problem, leaving me, their customer, perplexed and stressed about who to turn to if a plumbing company couldn't figure solve the problem. Thanks Dean for solving what was really not such a big mystery after all-for you!
