I had my interior trim and doors installed and painted. I had started the process a couple years ago, but was having difficulty finishing the project with 3 young boys and all there activities. I hired Adventure 25 to come out and give a bid and they could start the project in about a week. The first part of the process was to finish the trim work and rip all the basement trim out and a couple of doors that had not been replaced yet. The trim work was done in a couple of days. The painting was delayed because of rainy weather. This is where the stress begins. The prep work that comes before painting can be a lot of work and time consuming. There was little to no prep of the trim. Lots of missed nail holes, lots of missed caulking and the stuff that was done was very poor. I was told that this is high quality paint and it will cover in one coat. I know better. It can take several coats to make the white trim look good. There was paint all over the wood floors, tile in kitchen, paint on the cabinets, paint on my trees outside, paint on the concrete driveway, paint on my fire pit. There seemed to be no care in the world. Jaimie kept telling me that we are not painters. I understand that but my 5 year could of done better. It was supposed to be rolled and instead there was pain brush marks all the trim. The one painter said he thought it would look cute to but swirls with his brush on the top of all the door trims. I met with Jaimie 4 different times to which he said how do I make this right? I would go through things with him and come home at the end of the day to find more of a mess and continued poor quality work. I have never seen anything like this. He would say it would be fixed but I don't think he would watch over his workers and forget to tell them things. I am stressed out beyond believe as my hope was to have this finished to spend more time with my kids. Instead I have to redo most of it. I had another contractor come out and told me it would be about 10 thousand to fix. He never had seen such poor quality work. I would not recommend him to my worst enemy. Very nice person but I think he was over his head and always in a rush, hence the poor quality work. Since I cant pay 10 thousand to someone to fix it, I am now looking at a year or so to fix my trim. Very frustrated and angry customer.
I was incredibly impressed with this plumber. He was able to come out the same day and complete two toilet installs. He was respectful of our home and was very kind to our multiple (and very curious) pets. He completed the work in a timely manner and cleaned up after himself. Quite frankly, his services are a steal! Allen is easy to work with and very knowledgable. In the future, I plan to have some upgrades to my house and he kindly provided some recommendations on contractors and electricians. This spring I will be having a utility tub moved and I plan on contacting Spitfire Plumbing to complete the job.
I can't say enough good things about Don. It's really rare to find a craftsman these days that takes as much care and pride in his work. Besides coming in right on-budget and on-time, any obstacles encountered were met with a can and will-do attitude. He was completely upfront with his bid and explained in detail what we could expect from him before, during and after the job was complete. Don even taught us a few things. He called if he was running late and worked continuous days until the job was done, right throughout the weekend. He made multiple trips to pick up materials for us and worked really hard to minimize overhead and waste. He kept the work areas clean and when he was done, we couldn't even tell he was there. (Other than having a beautify transformed main floor!) Halfway through the job we were so impressed by Don that we already started referring him to friends and through social media. Some other contractors need to take notes. This is how you do it. This is how you satisfy a customer. Thanks Don! We have you on speed-dial.
Greg Carlson at Gigantous Inc. did a really nice job refinishing a floor for us. He stayed extra late through unanticipated difficulties with the floor and completed the job in very short order to meet a furniture delivery deadline. He is great about keeping up with communications and leaving the work area clean, too. Greg also has both a good sense of fairness and a strong commitment to doing a quality job and shows a desire to meet his customer's expectations. He was knowledgeable in discussing options and flexible in carrying these out. When he is on-site he really works hard. We have had two other services refinish floors for us previously and Greg's work is by far the nicest of the 3 we have had done. I would invite him back for future jobs anytime. By the way, he seems to be pretty knowledgeable about other general home work, too.
Needed new soffit board to replace rotting boards above bay window, that also contained a wasp nest or two. He also cleaned rain gutters. Things he did that were great: 1) showed up for initial meeting and to give estimate ON TIME! 2) performed beautiful work over bay window with new soffit boards complete with paint job; and removed wasps nest, 3) reasonably priced for this single-income household, 4) felt totally comfortable with him and appreciated his gracious attitude towards me as a female client. Was not condescending (which is my experience with a few contractors in the past). Will definitely ask him to return to help with more "fixer-upper" jobs as well as some more complex renovations.
We hired Preston to build a pergola over our deck and an overhang over our back door entry. He did a GREAT JOB -- high quality work, consultative on design, very courteous and professional, and finished the project on time. We are thrilled with the results, would absolutely use this contractor again and recommend him to others!
Ryan is one of the exceptional contractors that is proactive and keeps to his schedule and definitely communicates to keep the customer in the loop
Julio was great to work with. I was in need of a subcontractor for a big drywall job and he was there to size up the job the next day and got it started immediately. The job was completed way before I thought it would be and the work quality was great. Very enjoyable guy to work with.
Nick and Top Notch Construction had the flexibility to tailor the roofing contract to the property owner's needs and requests. The work was performed in a timely manner. The estimate was very much within market reason, and his crews could communicate in English with other contractors on site and with the tenants of the property. There was not damage to flower gardens and other vegetation. Well done.
This project is still in progress. The handyman will be doing the work on Saturday.
Great Sub-Contractor on my project. Looking forward to more projects in the future.
We worked with Deborah Hannon with The Cozy Cottage for a complete remodel of our home. We chose Deb because she promised us that the whole process would be easy because she had a team of contractors that she works with. We are a busy family and didnât want to be managing our project by ourselves, so this sounded wonderful. It turned out that it was! The contractors that Deb connected us with were a top notch team that communicated with us well, had a commitment of quality, were competitive on cost, and provided an excellent service. As our project grew, each one of them were available to continue and provide great insight to our project and became more than just contractors, but friends that we enjoyed being around and had a great camaraderie with. In addition, Deb really took the time to understand what we wanted in our remodel. She understood that both my husband and my tastes vary, but was able to bring us design options that fit both of our tastes and fit exactly what we were looking for. This process allowed us to continue on our busy lives and make decisions about the project quickly with Debâs excellent design choices and options. Deb has done so well that we have adopted her into our family as an honorary member. We really truly enjoyed working with her and her ability to take everything we ask and make it happen. I am happy to speak with anybody further if you have any questions.
I was very happy with the service provided. They recommended a solution for the specific job I requested and met estimate. I pointed out a separate concern i had and they advised on some things that should have been done differently by prior home owner/contractor as well as identified and addressed some issues with existing wiring, boxes and outlets providing updated reasonable estimate for the additional work on the spot. They also addressed smoke detectors that were out of code. I would highly recommend Hannah Electric for your electrical contracting needs. Super nice guys too.
First Thumbtack project, ever; so I was not sure what to expect. Was a little skeptical of GSD Handyman after reading their last review. But, his price and previous project photos were too compelling to not take the risk. Plus, I am hiring a “handyman” not a “babysitter”. Best decision I have ever made! GSD Handyman does amazing work, hands down the best contractor I have ever used. The quality and craftsmanship of his work was truly amazing. He treated me like a person, instead of a job. He took the time to answer all my questions and concerns. Upon completion of this project, I asked him about a few other projects. Like a kid in candy store, cannot wait until he completes those projects. I would recommend him to anybody for any project. Gerry is an extremely skilled carpenter. He should be the next person you hire!
True Professionals, they worked with me every step of the way on my basement finishing project. I had some bad past experiences with other contractors so it was refreshing to work with these guys. Everything looks excellent. Exceeded all my expectations.
