John did most of our kitchen remodeling work for us. This was the first time we have done a project like this so we were sort of feeling our way. I would hire John again, though his helper, Jamie, was not as good. I think the qulity of work was generally good, but I wasn't there to watch most of it. Some smaller details looked like they could have been handled better, such as flatness/evenness of the floor, placement of electrical boxes, some of the edges where the new floor met the old floor or HVAC vents. John was always happy to change something for us, but of course it would cost more to make the change. When they initially installed the cabinets one section was about 3/4 of an inch misalligned with the existing wall. Apparently they didn't see anything wrong with that and went ahead and installed the cabinets. When I saw the result I thought we needed to fix it, which John did, but he charged us another $225 to do it. There are probably always unforeseen circumstances that arrise during construction, especially in remodeling, and sometimes John would figure out a good solution (one that we liked), but other times it would be not such a good solution and we might have wanted it done differently. So more communication at those times would have been nice. Overall we are pleased with the results. The new kitchen looks pretty good, though we're still only about 95% completed. We are still waiting for a few ordered items to arrive and John will be back to finish things off. John was good at telling us when he would be there and when he wouldn't. The project has gone on a little longer than we had hoped, about 8 weeks, but things kept on schedule pretty well and there were a few unexpected extras like replacing part of the ceiling and removing multiple old floors. It was pretty easy to work with John and he seems trustworthy. I think we are a bit overbudget, but we did add in some extra painting to the job. Knowing what I now know, I think the project would go more smoothly if we had to do it again. I think John also learned some things during this project. For example, I don't hink he had installed hardwood flooring before. I bet he would also be better at that if he had to do it again. John gets things done, but sometimes he should think ahead a few more steps and try to figure out if he's doing things the best way.
The job was to install a dog door in an exterior wall and to hang a bicycle rack in my garage. It went PERFECT! Kevin was not only very responsive to my requests, but also professional, timely and did excellent work for a fair price. I would highly recommend him!
We hired J&A Painting Inc. for a major paint-job in our new home, they caulked and repainted all interior ceilings, trims, doors, closets, and walls as well as the garage. They also power washed all the windows and stained the deck. We were on a very tight schedule but they made it all happen! They were very professional and accommodating specially since we had lots of contractors coming in and out at different times. We couldn't have found better service, father and son were extremely easy to work with, we had a great time with them around. Their services were very reasonably priced, and they supplied paint/materials. We would recommend J&A in a blink! Thank you for making it feel like home!
Gary and his team did a great job on my condo in Charlottesville. He was very responsive and prompt. They did the ceilings, trim and walls. The price was good and he also left the remaining paint for touch-ups. He advised on paint selection taking into consideration my budget. Would recommend and would also hire again.
Ken was fantastic!! He did an amazing job. Great attention to detail, all of the walls, ceiling, and trim look fantastic! He also was very careful not to paint things like removable shelves together with the track, which is always appreciated :) Couldn't recommend Ken more!!
Justin did a great job fixing a hole in my basement wall! He offered a fair price for the work, showed up on time and made excellent repairs to the wall! Then he painted with the paint I provided to finish everything up! I would definitely hire Justin again for other handyman work! Thanks Justin!
Solid work considering the diversity of handyman projects (install range hood on old plaster/brick wall, Remove a 100 yr. old interior plaster wall, etc...).
I am a 80 year old and Justin lives down the street from me. Him and his dad always help me out with chores around the house that I cannot do. I was scammed by a tree service and didn't have the money to pay somebody to paint the exterior of my house. Justin sent one of his crews over to my house and worked around my financial situation. They power washed my house, painted all of the trim and windows, and even replaced some of the rotten boards. Not only did he exceed my expectations with customer service but the quality of job was excellent. I would highly recommend him to anybody. I will never hire another company again.
This is the epitome of a good small/local company. Curtis Home Improvements played a difficult role in our multi-faceted home renovation. We hired them to convert a large window to a set of french doors, build a large custom deck, abandon several electric base plate heaters, have granite counter tops installed in our kitchen, install a tile back splash in our kitchen, custom cut our cabinets and installed a wall mounted microwave, installed a dishwasher, and a sink disposal. They did all this while seamlessly allowing other contractors to come in install a new heat pump, pull up carpets and put hardwoods in one room, refinish hardwoods everywhere else, and my family to remove wall paper and paint throughout the house while I built a fence. In the process, we added on a few change orders: removing, repairing and placing new tile for a bathroom floor where we found some wet rot, skim coating areas on the drywall that were messed up from previous renovations or from removing wall paper. They performed this additional work without missing a beat, and at a fair cost. Everything looks great.
We were put in touch through Thumtack with Abracadabra Services to do a small masonry repair on our interior fireplace hearth. I was contacted immediately and they came out to do the estimate. The work was completed a couple of days later and the workman did a great job. He was very professional. I was impressed at how fast the work was completed. Thank you!
