Eric is an excellent electrician and an enthusiastic learner in the field, which makes him a great choice, despite the fact that he only has four years in the field. I first hired him to wire and install an outlet for our dryer. For this job, he gave me a list of materials to buy, giving me control of the materials cost. He finished in a timely manner and his work was clean and tidy. When he was done, we went down to inspect the work, and he fixed a stubborn nail that wouldn’t stay attached to the ceiling support. I also asked Eric for a quote on a lighting project that I wanted done in our entryway, foyer and dining room. Eric gave me a few quotes and left the decision as to how to proceed with my husband and me. Eric returned within a week to begin the project and was dedicated to doing the work well, despite several unexpected turns in the project. Each time he found a new problem, he accepted the challenge of finding a solution, consulting with my husband and me each time to make sure we were okay with any additional time or money needed to complete the project. For example, when he found that the space between our first story ceiling and second story floor was not up to code (there’s only six inches between the floors, instead of the typical 10-12 inches), Eric researched and found a recessed light fixture that would fit the space and didn’t cost much extra. Also, while he was adding a light switch to an existing switch box, he realized that the existing wiring was too old and too short to connect to the new switch without being a fire hazard. He was willing to rewire the old fixture at a fraction of his normal labor cost to make sure our house would be safe and the whole switch up to code. Again, when the job was complete, Eric explained his work and how it connected to the existing electrical wiring and panel. He gave me recommendations for future work to increase the safety of our home. All the information was very helpful and made me feel much more knowledgeable and secure about our new home and its electrical system. When we found a problem during our inspection of the completed job, he was willing to fix it and didn’t charge me extra for the labor. The only nit picky complaint I have is that a few things were patched up without as much care as I would have liked, leaving us with a bit of clean-up work. There were also a few times when he left certain things out that made our living spaces unsafe. Eric is very approachable, however, and willing to address and fix any of his clients’ concerns as he continues to improve his trade as an electrician. I would strongly recommend him for small electrical fixes as well as more involved projects.
Mr. Boc did an excellent job. He was timely, was prepared and focused on the task at hand. I will use him again. He also prepared an invoice which outlining the work completed and cost of parts and labor fee. He was very reasonable in his price.
Chuck & Chris and the entire Barnes Sklare team did a great job on our basement finishing. Here are some details about why: 1. Chuck & Chris added value to our design process by taking our suggestions and offering additional considerations/tweaks while we finalized planning for the project. We also got a realistic (nailed it) all in itemized budget so we understood where our money was being spent. Here is a hint for you - If your potential contractor can only give you a 1 or 3 line item budget you need to ask for more clarification/details into how the project is being estimated otherwise you may be setup for a whopper of a final bill (because if they can't show you they don't know themselves!). 2. Changes happen and that was ok. During the project we did make some minor tweaks to some of the electrical (lots of home run AV cables to support a centralized distribution/switching point) and decided in the home theater area to spray / insulate the floor for sound (great choice!). Changes were clearly communicated and understood with regards to how the budget was being affected. 3. Consistent workforce! The Barnes Sklare project team did a great job of treating our property with respect and cleaning up daily. We really liked seeing the same faces day after day and exploring the basement with the kids to note the progress they made. The same crew handled the project from start to finish and we were notified when a 3rd party contractor was used for special services (spray insulation). 4. Quality of work was very good / excellent overall. Minor details were easily and promptly corrected. These guys take pride in their work and it shows through the finish details. We interviewed 5 other contractors before selecting Barnes Sklare for our basement finishing project. We are very pleased with all aspects of our project and the results. Would we use these guys again - YES! In fact we have a little bathroom remodel coming up in a few months.
Rodney came out to do a quick roof repair. He was very knowledgeable and gave us advice on what we needed to do in order to fix the problem. I would definitely return to Rodney for future repairs.
We recently had our kitchen cabinets painted by D3 Services and had a great experience! The guys were very professional and responsive throughout the entire process -- from getting an estimate and following through on the job. The entire project took 5 days (as planned) and we couldn't be happier with the results! They handled everything from purchasing the paint and products, to masking, removing the doors and hardware/hinges, spraying all paint (no brushing or rolling which was a huge plus for us!), and the reinstallation and clean-up. They were incredibly thorough, very polite, quiet, hard workers, on time and easy to deal with. We'd definitely recommend them to friends and family and consider them for future projects. The coolest part was that the same night they finished the job, they sent us a before/after video of the entire process to share! Keep up the good work guys!
Robert does excellent work. He is neat and efficient. He has done work in my office and when the day is finished he cleans up after himself so that one could not tell that he had even been there. He is honest, prompt, and skilled. The firsdt job that Robert did for me was to repair the windows in my office building. The building is well over 100 years old and the windows are double hung with sashes of slightly varying sizes. When finished the buildiung inspector checked his work and complimented him on a job excellently done. Robert is a skilled craftsman and I would reccomend him to anyone who wants a first class top drawer job done. He has done other work for me with the same kind of skill and efficiency as the first. I got my money's worth and then some.
Brian was very easy to work with, from estimate to completion. I had him power wash a 2 year new deck and stain it. He took great care in protecting my property, (and my neighbors) when spraying the shadow box fencing. He really impressed the neighbor too! I would recommend Multi-Craft to friends.
Pruitt remodel and repair did an excellent job. They repainted my entryway, diningroom and livingroom in one day. They were very prompt(arrived when they said they would) courteous and cleaned up everything when they left. The total cost for the job was more than fair, including the cost of the paint(which Mr Pruitt picked up for us). We were very pleased withthe results and will have them do more for us in the future. Mr and Mrs Mark Patterson
Mud and tape done fast and cost effective.
I had a great experience with Anthony and his team. They sanded and finished my hardwood floors, tiled a porch, made screens for the porch and did just about anything else we could find for them to do. The job took about a week. He always explained what they were going to do and what it would cost. The job was in Akron and he came done and gave me an estimate within a day of my contacting him. I have had a great deal of work done on my home lately and he was by far the most reliable.
Replaced chimney flashing and window trim. Travis was prompt in returning calls and appointments, completed the work on time and within his estimated cost. I have hired him to do additional work on the house. I highly recommend him.
We have used Thompson Renovation on multiple occasions over the last 10 years. He did our kitchen and bathroom in our previous home in Akron, he did all the design work and it turned out beautiful. He gave me his cost on cabinets which saved me over $6000 from the other estimate we received. When we moved in 2009, we had him back to do the deck, told him our budget, and let him do his thing. We ended up with a 600 sq. ft. 3 tier deck with 12' gazebo on the lower landing. It is unbelievable what he can do within a budget. I would trust him to do any remodeling project. He will continue to be my 1 and only contractor.
I had a privacy fence installed in my yard. I also had the railings on my deck replaced. Mike and his team did a fantastic job. They where not a bother and easy to work wih. The cost was fair. The workmanship was outstanding. The fence was built entirely by hand instead of panels. This helped accommodate my hilly yard. The railings on the deck where custom built. We have recieved so many compliments from our neighbors since we had the work done. I would absolutely recommend this company to any one. Truly a 5 star experience.
Dave gave us the job we wanted, a new cabinet for our kitchen. Great value, on tine each day. Cleaned up any dirt or etc. that needed picked up. Explained the job and cost clearly and answered all questions. We will have him back for some other work. Knows his work.
Excellent work, low costs, and commitment to detail.
Chuck came out on 3/29/16 to give a estimate to repair my roof that was not done right by my original roofer. he was very professional gave me a quote. He came out the following day and repaired the roof.
I initially was looking for an estimate for cabinets to be painted. Rylie Renovations responded quickly, scheduled a time to review the effort and submitted a proposal. The work evolved into a kitchen design which included repairing some work the builder didn’t do well and some damage from a prior contractor. Through the entire process he was extremely professional, transparent about the specific work being done, costs were in line with estimates and the impeccable quality was beyond amazing. I noticed He even fixed some little things that he saw along the way, and didn’t increase the price! I’m very pleased with the work, the quality and the manner in which it was done. The price was reasonable too. I will definitely hire him for all my other projects. Kudos for a job well done.
I cannot tell you how impressed we were with Steve's work. He not only gave a reasonable estimate (much lower than we expected) but he did a quality job! Steve provided a list of the materials required to do the job if we wanted to buy them and just pay for labor or he would provide materials - so no hidden costs. I really would encourage others to use his services. We would definitely use him again. Thanks so much, Steve!
It is a joy to work with this contractor. He listened to our wish list & made some cost effective suggestions plus, plus, plus knew how to be respectful of our existing house while doing the addition! So often i hear remodeling & additions are alot if work for the homeowner but i would do it again with this company. Thank you Dan! We will send you pictures once we decorate.
Contractor responded quickly and professionally. Initial demo work was estimated fairly and then performed very quickly and thoroughly. Their professional manner and work ethic guaranteed them the build-out phase of the project. Will continue working with them.
Our basement flooded and we had Bell Construction come in to do the repair work after getting their name from our State Farm agent. Joshua, the owner, was very professional, personable and flexible as we had to change the original start date due to a death in the family. Prior to the work beginning we were give a thorough estimate of what the cost would be along w/ an explanation. The work included replacing dry wall and paneling, laying a CVT floor, replacing old switches and sockets as well as painting. We were pleased w/ his work and found him very easy to work with.
