    Cris assembled 7 pieces of ikea furniture for me. Cris was punctual, professional, efficient, and his price was fair. I'd definitely use him again.

    We couldn't be happier with the job! Very fast, professional, and worth EVERY SINGLE PENNY!

    Chris was great and I would highly recommend his services. I had ordered a Gorilla swing set online and he was very responsive setting up a time to complete the install after a lot of back and forth due to inaccurate shipping information from UPS. He and his son arrived when they said they would and had the entire set up in about half a day. He was very nice, great to work with and did a wonderful job on the install. My daughters could not be happier. Thank you again.

    Chris did a great job getting the set together. He was quick and efficient. However, he did reschedule a number of times and arrive very late on the day we planned. But, he got it all done on the same day and we are very happy with his work.

    I just want to say that if you have a Skyfort ll Cedar swing set to put together Chris is the guy to call. He came with 2 other people and had it up in 6 1/2 hours. He and his crew were absolutely fantastic , friendly and full of tips on how to treat the cedar and any questions I had. I will be sure to recommend him . My grandkids were thrilled with it.

    Cris did a wonderful job setting up our swing set! He picked up our swing set from vendor at no extra cost which was much appreciated. Highly recommend!

  • 5/5 stars Play Equipment Construction Verified Review

    Excellent experience!! It was great having Chris and his son come and build our Skyfort II. The entire process including: contacting him, setting up our date, and having them come out and build it was easy and quick! I am so glad we went this route and even happier we chose the Swing Set Guy :-)

    I was very impressed with the quick response on the bid from Chris. He showed up on the day of the project with one additional worker and had our fairly large swingset built in 3 hours. i was very impressed and thankful that i spent the money to have a pro build it. Saved my husband and i a lot of time and stress and the kids have been thrilled!

    Very pleased with "The Swing Set Guy" and his son. Quite a team.
    They came to install our new Skyfort II right out of the 4 giant delivery boxes.
    Extremely courteous, showed up, did a great job in the exact amount of time quoted. Cleaned up when they were done and the set looks amazing, and my favorite part....SAFE!
    Thank you Chris and Chris. I highly recommend your work.

    While searching the Internet for someone to install a playset in my back yard, I came across the Thumbtack site. I received an almost instant response from "The Swingset Guy". (such a quick response, I'm impressed already.) I contracted Chris for the installation. Chris and his crew are the ultimate professionals. The cost of installation was very reseasonable, the installation was completed in just a few hours, 19 missing bolts?, no problem, Chris sent one of his crew to Home Depot to buy the bolts and paid for them out of his own pocket! He has gone above and beyond. This has been THE most pleasant experience we have
    had EVER with a serviceman/craftsman. Chris receives the highest recommendation we can give. Linda and Gary Kingan

    Cris M. from The Installation guy replied to this review on July 13, 2014:

    Why thank you Miss Linda, you was a great customer as well. It was in the high 80s and she kept offering cold drinks which was great because we do bring are own but run out and not all my customers offer us anything. Like she said, there was 19bolts missing and was not her fault what so ever it was gorillas responsibility to reimburse for that. The trucking company also lost her spiral slide and she had to wait a couple weeks to get it to her. Again, not her fault but I did have to charge more to come back out to put it on for her. When she paid me for it I didn't count the money till almost home and I noticed there was $40 extra then should of been, she paid me for the bolts I had to buy. I wish she didn't do that but I very much appritate what she did and I thank you linda. Linda and her husband was great and thank you guys.

    Chris and his team came out while I was on vacation and put up a Skyfort Cedar Playset. When we came back, the set completed and looked great. He left the yard clean and had the job done within a day. He kept in constant communication with me before and after the job. I would highly recommend Chris for building swingsets

    Cris M. from The Installation guy replied to this review on July 13, 2014:

    Joe was also a great customer, he worked with me as I had to changed his date of installation twice which I don't like having to do but he was understanding and very patient with me. He also without knowing me from nothing he went on his vacation and left e my payment hidden outside for me and I told him I don't want to know where its at until I call you and tell you the job is completed, well he told me first thing in the morning when I called to talk about where he was wanting it located in his yard. He had trust in us without even meeting us just by reading my reviews. I thank you Joe for everything as well.

    I found Chris after searching on the internet. I needed my swingset/playhouse moved to another part of the yard. He contacted me the very same day and was very busy, but he was able to work w/ me and took care of the job right away. Great communication (which is hard these days), a reasonable price, and great work! Would highly recommend Chris for any swing set needs!

  • 5/5 stars

    Can't say enough good things about Chris! Not only did they install our swing set in a short time but they were truly professional. Chris really takes pride in what he does and he is GREAT at it. Just an all around nice guy!!! I highly recommend him!

    Chris & his son built our Monterey play set in about 6 1/2 hours. They did a great job and even suggested a different placement in our yard, which worked out great. They were good workers, never took a break. The play set looks wonderful and our daugther can't wait to use it every day.

  • 4/5 stars Play Equipment Verified Review

    Chris and his son did an excellent job building the playset for our family. The instructions said it would take 2 people working 20 hours to set it up. Chris was done in under 7 hours. He also was able meet me at Sam's club to pick-up and deliver the playset to our house the day he built it.

    This was definitely one of the best investments I made. I would recommend Chris to others.

  • 5/5 stars Play Equipment Verified Review

    Great to work with and the playset looks great! Thanks for a flawless experience!!

  • 5/5 stars Play Equipment Verified Review

    Chris was extremely professional as well as knowledgeable! I would use his serices again if needed!

  • 5/5 stars Play Equipment Verified Review

    Chis was awesome. He and his team built our Skyfort purchased through Sams Club super fast - it looks great, and is solid as a rock. There were some missing and broken parts in the boxes that were shipped from Sams Club - and Chris called the maufacturer directly and took care of it all - I never had to do a thing. The replacement parts arrived within 2 days, and Chris came right back over and finished up the day they arrived. Chris also took apart my old swingset and hauled it away. If the manufacturer hadn't mesed up the shipping - Chris probably would have done ALL of this in one day - amazing! He did great work, very quickly, for a fair price. Thumbs up!!

    Chris is professional, and he knows what he is doing! He put up our Gorilla Highpoint in a few hours and did a wonderful job! I would highly recommend him. Colleen E. - Pittsburgh, PA

    I am more than happy with the job Chris did for me. He installed my sons new Gorilla Sundance playset in about 4hrs. I couldnt believe how fast it went up and my son loves it. I would recommend Chris to anyone that doesnt have the time or know-how to do the job.

Question and answer

Q. What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

A. I have worked for Lilliput play homes for 12 years been doing this on my own for 6 year. I have installed all sets from all companies and alot of the times I dont even need the directions.

Q. Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.

A. I price my jobs at a flat rate by how long it takes me to install each set or furniture it`s not by the hour.

Q. How did you get started doing this type of work?

A. It`s kinda a long story but to make it short, I found a job Installing swing sets and I loved it for a long time till my boss started getting greedy and my pay was going down instead of up. I started to hate getting up in the morning and going to work just to get less money. I quit my job and got started on my own and now I love it again and all my customers are happy and when they are happy I'm happy.

Q. What types of customers have you worked with?

A. Most of my customers are great with me but you always get that one from time to time that nothing makes them them happy but I do my best to give them what they want but that dont happen to much at all. All my customers love me and no im not bragging its just the truth im a loving kinda guy is all.

Q. Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?

A. I am proud of all my jobs, the best part of the job is when it`s completed and we get to see the kids play on some thing that we built and was not there when they got out of bed that morning.

Q. What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?

A. I think if your mechanically inclined you anyone can install a swing set but you will run into problems here and there and it is frustrating at times and you`ll probably curse as well and it will take you the time that is estimated in the directions. That`s where I come in, I been doing this work for 18 years and if it says it takes two men 20 hours to install if going to take us 4 to 6 hour s. That save you all that extra time to spend on other things you need to take care of. Also please spend that extra money on the better swing set for your children so that it last them all there childhood and be much safer then a cheap set that will fall apart in two years. I also have never had any complaints on my work in all my years. An please watch out for other professionals if there price seems to low then trust me only getting what you pay for so dont go by the cheapest go by experience.

Q. What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?

A. How many years experience do you have. Have you ever installed this model before. Have you ever made any mistakes with a job and if so how did you take care of the problem. What do you think of this product I picked.
