Christian and his team did a great job on the replacement of bricks and iron railing along steps leading one story up to front door of our townhouse. Original railing was 30 years old, totally rusted, and disconnected from the steps, which made it a serious liability. The team found bricks that matched the shape of the current ones, constructed the railing so it was identical to the original design (required by the HOA) and painted it with three layers of primer/paint to fend off future rust. Project included sanding and repainting an iron gate as well. I am totally pleased with the finished product and will be soon using the 5th Gen Group for another brick project.
We wanted to start off saying that we love Thumbtack. We hired Tim because of the wonderful reviews that he had and he was so quick to get back to us on a proposal. He was very fixable with his schedule and ours. We were amazed that he offered to come out New Year's Day to patch up/fix our dry walling in our up stairs bathroom. Tim arrived in a timely manner and immediately started tackling the job. Another thing that was so touching about hiring him is he brought his wife along to watch him work because he had a busy schedule the next couple of days and wouldn't get to spend much time with her. We both enjoyed their company as he worked on the bathroom. He actually taught my husband how to patch dry walling, which was very nice because we are getting our house ready to sale. He finished the bathroom project in a few hours and we were very happy with the results. We will definitely hire Tim in the future and recommend him to anyone that needs an all around handyman.
We hired Jose and his team to cover our porch, steps and walkway with flagstone. The team did a great job and we absolutely love the outcome; our home now looks polished and inviting! I really appreciated how Jose explained all that he and his team would need to do during the project--including removing and re-installing bannisters/railings to allow for the increased height of the flagstone. That's a part of the project that I would never have thought of--and we appreciated how the different parts of the project were itemized in the quote. Jose was great at communicating with us and providing us project updates. We ran into weather delays (it rained for many days in a row), but his team was still able to do a little bit each day. Jose also was good at letting us know that some of our landscaping would get some wear and tear during the project. I appreciated the heads up and how his team tried to minimize the damage as much as possible. Unfortunately we did things backwards and had new landscaping before the hardscaping. Lesson learned for us, as we had to put more money into landscaping--so keep that in mind--none of that was their fault! I would definitely recommend J.Portillo Construction, LLC..
Mauricio was awesome! Super responsive and easy to work with. He started the job on Saturday before the rain hit, came back to finish the work yesterday. Our front stoop and stairs look amazing, the railings are on there rock solid now too! If we need more stone/concrete work done - we'll definitely be giving him a call.
Vintage Wood Floors and Stairs installed new railings in our house and I could not be happier with their professionalism and the finished product. Arnold was wonderful to work with throughout - he came to our house and gave an estimate and suggestions for the design, worked with us to do the project at a budget that we were comfortable with, and was responsive to questions in the planning process. They were able to do the installation just days after the initial consultation, and were great at communicating throughout the process to get my input (on the wood finish, etc.). The new railings beautifully complement the "style" of our home, and their craftsmanship and attention to detail is fantastic. Truly talented and courteous professionals.
Mr. Ford welded up some broken iron railings for me that was causing some safety concerns. He did a great job fabricating new posts and installing them on-site. He was very easy to work with and was very professional. All work was done in a timely manner. I highly recommend him and would use him again.
I've hired Jeff now to help with two projects--helping with our powder room (installed shiplap to the walls, installed the new toilet, put plumbing in the pedestal vanity and installed the new door along with the handle), as well as installing our new front door with sidelights. The powder room looks fantastic and I'm very pleased with the handiwork of both Jeff and his colleague, EJ. It was nice that he didn't pressure us to pay a lump sum and do the entire thing himself. We like to do DIY when we can, but time/skill level doesn't always allow. I painted, my husband installed the tile floor, and Jeff did the rest. I was pleasantly surprised to learn he does plumbing too, because we've been rooked by a few plumbers who wanted to charge roughly double what Jeff charged to install the new toilet and put plumbing in the sink. He obviously takes pride in his work and stays until the last detail is taken care of. He has a friendly and fun personality, too. He gives tips along the way without being condescending. He and a different colleague also spent a recent Saturday installing our new door/sidelights after the previous (ugly) door/frame had been damaged in a windstorm. He not only directed us on where to get the high-quality door (TW Perry), but he and his colleague did impeccable work to ensure it fit and closed properly so my husband can have his dream smart lock system (#suburbanlifegoals). I couldn't be happier with how the door turned out, and now we can lock our door--how novel! Our house was built in 1971 so we have no shortage of projects on our radar, and I wouldn't hesitate to hire Jeff again--and we will! His rates are always lower than other quotes I have gotten for the same work, without sacrificing on attention to detail.
I hired SmartHouseRemodeling for a deck job at my house in Alexandria, VA. The job included demolition and disposal of the old L-shaped deck which was approximately 400 sqft. The new deck consisted of a slightly bigger L-shaped deck a stairway leading to a walkway to a 28 x 16 deck platform in my back yard. I had a cheap plastic covering over my grill that was ugly but very functional as I could grill in any weather. I did not want to lose that but all the ones I found online were expensive and not that big so I needed . I also wanted a custom shelf for my flowers and herbs. Other companies quoted me way more than the quote I got from Smart House. Their price beat others prices without the customization. They managed to do both deck and connecting patio with the stairs and platform, custom railing, custom overhand in 3 weeks. I am very happy with the outcome and love my new outdoor living space. A deck is expensive and it was tough decision but I am so glad I did it as it gives me so much joy having a great outdoor space! The deck looks amazing and everyone that sees it compliments me on it. I would highly recommend these guys. Got the job done on budget too! Don’t hesitate, these guys do great work for a great price.
I am extremely pleased with all the work that JT Painting and Home Improvement did for me recently (June 2015). I hired JT to fix the structurally unsound stair rail and newel post for my single-family home and he did a terrific job with the repair - it is as good as new without going to the expense and hassle of replacing it entirely. He also repaired/replaced interior doors, installed a ceiling fan, repaired various drywall dings and holes, power washed my deck and siding, and other improvement projects. The work was excellent and for a very fair price. He is responsive, returns calls quickly, gives you a least-cost option for larger projects and delivers on schedule. I will not hesitate to contract with him again for my next home improvement projects. He and his crew take pride in their work and it shows. The dozen or so small and larger projects that he did for me all went without a hitch - one of the very best experiences I have had as a homeowner for 25 years! Thanks for a job very well done.
We used Naula's Hardwood Floors last September right before we put our house on the market to refinish the entire main floor (kitchen, dining room, living room, hallway and 2 flights of stairs which meant they treads were done by hand). I got 4 bids and they were the most reasonable (by a hair from the lowest big but lowest none the less!). Because we have big dogs scratching the floors from play they really needed attention. I liked how Luis paid attention to detail and was very careful to make sure nothing was damaged. We were very pleased with finished product, so much so that we had Luis finish our kitchen floor in our new house. This is a custom kitchen and I wanted to make sure there was no damage to the painted cabinets. The team was careful and did an amazing job and the floors look great. I highly recommend Naula's floors for a job well done at a good price.
Callie, Randy, and Andy were great to work with! Callie is super personable and easy to coordinate everything with. Randy and Andy were great craftsmen who spent extra time and effort to make sure our project was completed to perfection. Our project was to install two sets of handrails in our old, historic home. Along the way we ran into a few snags - steel studs, light switches in the way, the wrong size ballasters. The guys took care of each obstacle professionally and timely. Once the railings were all said and done, we noticed that one of the posts needed a finishing touch. Randy came all the way out again just to do a finishing touch that took 3 minutes. The railings look amazing - very classy. We will definitely use these guys again for our under stair storage project. Thanks Parz Designs!
