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.
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.
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.
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.
This project is still in progress. The handyman will be doing the work on Saturday.
I am extremely satisfied with this contractor. Ken, the owner, convinced me to give them a shot after I was discouraged speaking with other contractors. He and Chris were willing to provide me a quote for exactly what I wanted for fair price. Other contractors tried to sell me on products that were either not to my taste or seemed inferior in quality. Homestead let me choose exactly what I wanted. Will did a great job from beginning to end. He answered all my questions and kept me in the loop step-by-step. The tile work on the floor and tub surround looks like a work of art. I would recommend Homestead to anyone who knows what they want and wants it done professionally at a fair price.
I hired Studio Rebus to replace two doors that were kicked in during a home invasion. Kel created a very detailed budget for the project that my insurance company accepted without question, even though they had originally estimated the project to be much less (not realizing our doors were custom sized). Like most home improvement projects, this one took longer than originally projected, but I would definitely hire Studio Rebus again, for several reasons. First, Kel is responsive. No phone call or email went unreturned. He communicated promptly and thoroughly at every step of the process. Second, Kel's very thorough estimate left no stone unturned, so while our project got delayed because of supplier issues, there were never any surprises in expense. Third, Kel loves this work, and it shows. Unlike handymen I've hired in the past, Kel is very knowledgeable about houses, and lovingly pays attention to form and function and even the most minor finishing detail (as we requested--we were not interested in doing any painting or finishing work ourselves). Fourth, Kel kept our home and garage very tidy during this process, cleaning up after himself each day.
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.
Great Sub-Contractor on my project. Looking forward to more projects in the future.
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!
I haven't had a lot of experience with contractors but this company was very professional from beginning to end. I had my bathroom remodeled and updated. They arrived to my home within the time frame that was given. They called to let me know when they were on their way. They cleaned up behind themselves and walked through with me and explained everything they did and options if I wished to change anything in the near future. I was so pleased with their work, I'm also getting a barn door installed and I'll be doing another review on how that installation goes as well. Overall, I am very pleased with their service and quality of work.
Chris is absolutely the best contractor that I've had the privilege to engage on any of my Projects (and there have been quite a few). The finish carpentry expertise that he provided for the floor trim, doors, windows (sashes and jambs) on my house was absolutely outstanding. It all looks brand new (or actually better than new). If you're looking for your project to be done right, on-time, and on-budget, then I can think of nobody better for you to contact than Chris. I give him my highest rating and endorsement and would definitely contact him again with any future carpentry needs.
Fantastic work, punctual and professional. As a professional I hire many contractors that said I would highly recommend this one.
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
We hired SBH for a roofing job on a 100+ year old home. Field contractor Ryan was communicative and thorough with all the steps needed. Work was done on schedule with a great crew. Looking forward to our next project with Ryan, Mike, and their crew -- next up is windows!
