First of all Mr. Brown was very professional and was prompt in responding to my requests and great in keeping me abreast as to when his workers would be available to do the work repairs at my home. However, the work that I actually received by his employers was not worth the value I paid and had expected to get. The total job of repairs took under an hour and was not worth the $170 dollars I paid for- i.e. putting my sliding screen door back on its track, drilling a hole and putting a screw in the hinge of my kitchen cabinet. Poorly painting and caulking a 2 feet baseboard that I really wanted replaced entirely but was told by the worker that all it needed was sanding down, caulked and repainted. I am not satisfied at all with the finished job on this baseboard. Something I could have done myself. Also I had a replacement fill valve put in my toilet that the worker purchased from Lowes priced at $7.98 based on the copy of the receipt. Mr. Brown initially quoted a price of $225.00 for the job which I was surprised thinking that they charged by the hour- $44/hour according to their Thumbtack posting. He said that the quoted price included a $70 to $85 service fee they charge also as well as the price for materials. I mentioned that they should include the service fee charge on their thumbtack posting so people would know ahead of time. I further told him that I was providing the paint. So we renegotiate the price down to $175.00 but this was based on my expectation of the work quality that I would receive and the cost of the replacement fill vale being more costly than what it actually was. I deducted $5.00 from the $175 price but really thought about deducting $25.00 because the worker badly stained my toilet covering with black drippings from the toilet tank that I thought I would have to replace. The worker suggested allowing him to see if he could clean it up first which he did and most of the stain did come out except for two small spots that hopefully will come out when washed in the washing machine. Not a satisfied customer at all. I am submitting an update not because I feel that my initial assessment was unfair and therefore should be removed or updated, but because I agree that I should have contacted Mr. Brown with my concerns prior to posting a review. So I would like to apologize to him for not contacting him first and to also thank him for agreeing to personally come to my home and take a look at my concerns for himself. I am even more grateful hat on the day he came he worked on resolving my issues himself. He redid the baseboard and it looks 100% better. I am quite pleased with it. He also readjusted the cabinet hinge so that my kitchen cabinet door now closes satisfactorily. Although I was concern with the quality of the replacement fill valve his worker purchased for my commode and I had attributed it to why my commode now had a weak flush and water pressure, Mr. Brown assured me that it was comparable to what I had in my other two toilets. And, after he adjusted the water level in the tank, the flush and water pressure is now comparable to that of my other two toilets. ( I’m just hoping that it will stand the test of time.) All in all, I am very pleased and thankful to Mr. Brown for his genuine concern for my issues and his quick resolve in addressing them. I am updating my rating to a 4 as well. I believe that Mr. Brown is a man of integrity and will do whatever he can to make sure that his clients receive quality work.

I hired this team to help with a window reglaze and painting project, the estimate was competitive, team extremely responsive and professional. Unfortunately there was a miscommunication on the actual work so the job didn’t go forward. They realized the error and immediately let me know they couldn’t do the job and processed my deposit for refund within minutes. I was extremely appreciative of their honesty and for the fact that they didn’t “try “ to do a job that they weren’t prepared to complete! Although I can’t comment on the quality of their work directly, I would imagine that it would have been top notched based on my interactions with this team.

Details: Less than 2 hours (Simple tasks) • Repairs • Painting • Windows • Home
