Yuri and company are the best that you’ll find in the Pittsburgh area. I posted a job request (to hang several paintings, mount a TV, and put together a bath cabinet) and received a response within an hour. I got a very reasonable quote and the team came the next day. Three people arrived on time and were very communicative about their exact arrival time. (They even offered to take their shoes off, which was greatly appreciated) We went item by item and the team confirmed with me if that was the desired height of hanging for each object. After confirmation, they then got to work and were very efficient. Not to mention they cleaned up all the drilling residue of mounting and removed the packaging of the items I had. 
I will definitely be calling them back if I have anymore jobs that need to be done in the house. The team is super friendly, respectful, and they have affordable pricing. They stayed true to their original quote price too!!

Yuri (and his team) were excellent! We hired them for 2 jobs. 1 was the installation of a sail canopy in our backyard, the other, staining of a shadow box fence. Both jobs were completed extremely timely, and with high quality. Even when unexpected things came up, Yuri handled with the utmost professionalism, and handled swiftly with resolution. I truly appreciated his ability to react to the unexpected. I would highly recommend Brookings Best. They absolutely delivered on what was committed at an affordable / reasonable price.

Yuri was very responsive to all questions and did his best to complete the job in a timely manner. Mother Nature is a formidable adversary but Yuri persevered. The job was well done by his staff and I am very happy.

Brookings best was a great choice for some work we needed done around our house (light fixtures and faucet/drain replacements). They were very responsive and professional. My husband and I thought the quality of work was great and they were very cost efficient. Will definitely be reaching out to Yuri and Rashaud in the near future for more projects.

Rashard did excellent job on my shower railings, attention to detail, and Yuri for positive attitude towards my need in a emergency situation. Came to my house very next day. I will spread the word for local jobs.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    We believe in full transparency and know the importance of trust in any relationship. This means no hidden fees with Brookings BEST! We charge a $75 trip fee for gas and drive-time labor and have a minimum service charge for each service so be sure to ask what else we can do for you to get the best bang for your buck!

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    At Brookings BEST we aim to please! We follow biblical wisdom from Matthew 7:12 and Col. 3:23 to bring glory to God, an enjoyable workplace of growth and opportunity for our team, and a superior customer experience! It starts with proper prior planning and communication to set a work date and price/crew/project expectations through a brief couple minute discovery conversation. The day before and morning of we reach out with reminders of the upcoming appointment and details of who they will be working with. Once finished, your technician will call management to confirm your satisfaction. We strive for 5 and are willing to do anything necessary to achieve this standard of service - feedback and reviews are appreciated! If we are able to hit (50) 5 star reviews by summer's end, we're going on a company cruise! Finally, always remember we are always just a phone call away!
