My foundation wall was buckling into my house. Dan and Nick dug out to expose the exterior foundation and leveled and straightened the foundation back. Tuck-pointed interior and exterior joints and back filled the hole leaving the foundation back in the original condition. They were prompt, efficient, friendly and got the job done to my expectations. I would recommend them without reservation.
I hired Jeff to due repair on fascia and soffet of my home. His quality of work is excellent and completed work in a timely fashion. He was also very neat and made sure the area was clean before he left. I received great value for the fee he charged.
The problem was with my side garage door causing locking problems. Though everything looked level and plumb there were some very slight tolerance differences. We took the strike plates off and cut the the nails holding the door frame to the rough opening. There were also two screws, one top and one bottom that were also removed from the strike side. The brick molding from the strike side and top were then removed allowing us to tap the top of the strike side in toward the garage and then tested the locking mechanisms for alignment and ease. Once in proper place, we secured the strike side top and bottom to hold it in place. When we had removed the brick molding we discovered that once the door was properly aligned, the sheathing on the strike side stuck out approximately a 1/4 inch. It became clear that the original contractor failed to square up the hinge side of the door opening with the strike side of the door opening thus there existed a slight torqueing of the door in the opening. With that, and the addition of cold and heat expansion and contraction, locking the door was problematic. We managed to trim down a 3/4 by 1/4 area of the sheathing so the brick mold would sit flat on the sheathing and door frame keeping the appropriate setback from the edge. We were also able to accomplish the work without affecting the siding at all. I had a piece of brick molding consistent with what was there so we were able to replace the strike side molding which I cut on my compound miter saw. Everything fit in perfectly and the door is easily closed and locked. What remains is some slight shimming, recaulking the top and strike side, and another coat of paint on the trim.
I cannot convey just how amazing Terry is! Not only did he know what he's doing but he is one of the hardest working contractors we've hired. My fiance and I couldn't be happier with our decision to go with him... Especially since he saved us hours of work without causing us to go over our budget. I am convinced that Terry is not human but rather a wallpaper removal and trim painting machine! Thanks Terry for all you've done helping to make our new house a home :-)
Lyndell did an outstanding job on our powder room. He came to our home to give us an estimate. He told what exactly needed to be done. He showed me the area needing repairs. Other companies expanded the area of repair in their estimates. He worked tirelessly on the project. The powder room looks like no work was ever done. Excellent. I highly recommend Lyndell's Home Remodel and Repair.
Josh did a great job remodeling my entire bathroom, tile, shower, floor, trim, paint, vanity, lighting. Bathroom looks great, affordable quote with excellent communication/project management and a very fair price. I would recommend for bathroom tiling and paint, etc. I actually did all the demo, and it got too difficult for me to continue, Josh came in and knocked the project out the park.
Home improvement jobs performed included replacing old trim around garage service door, cleaning/re-staining deck, patch up work on interior wall, and finishing trim around interior of front door. Tim was very meticulous with his work, his pride in his work was very evident. I would highly recommend Friends Network for any projects. Affordable and very honest about completing work. I would use service again in future.
Joe and Walter did a great job repairing long sections of rotting wood trim on the exterior of our house. They worked efficiently. Joe completed the work for the price we agreed upon in advance even though it was a bit more involved than he expected (and I was happy to pay a bit more than agreed upon to compensate him). The work took three days to complete and each day they left the worksite clean and orderly. Communication was excellent and Joe was punctual. If this sounds different than many contractors, you're right. Joe is much better than most and will use him on other projects in the future. Later this year he will drywall, mud, and paint the inside of my garage.
It was an all around pleasure working with Luke! He always responded quick, showed up on time, and really knew what he was doing. I had him instal new baseboards and trim in my mother-in-law’s house. We are both very happy with the quality of work and would recommend him to anyone needing a detail oriented carpenter. Thanks again, Luke!
Painting Highly recommend Steamatic for painting and repair services. Own a wood shingle and stone two story house in need of routine painting. Steamatic offered me the lowest price. They started the job in about two weeks which was great because it gave me time to decide on what color paint for the siding and trim and buy it myself. Took them about a week to finish the house and by the time the weekend came around, had the house looking like new! Called Bo that Sunday to see if his crew could fix some roof shingles an re-attach a gutter with new clips. They came out later that week, finished the repairs in about two hours and actually painted my mailbox at no additional cost to match the house. Really suggest you give these guys a call. Nice people , hard working and know their stuff. Jerome W
I absolutely loved the job that Nic and Ben did on my floors, trim, and doors. They were attentive to my needs, flexible with their schedule, and thorough with their work. I would highly recommend them for any job.
I hired Rick and his team to rehab a house that I was flipping in Waukegan, IL. When he came in to give me an estimate, I knew I was going to hire him. He knows what he's doing, he is full of ideas, he has the experience and it shows. We put together a list of things that had to be done and Rick added in items as the project went along. He always communicated with me and sent me pictures of the progress, which was great for me because I worked during the day and couldn't be around much to monitor the work. This was a big project, from re-doing an entire kitchen and bathroom, flooring, interior and exterior paint, demo'ing, pouring concrete, changing windows, to all the little things, like putting in new doors, installing railings, outlets, and so much more. The entire project took a little longer than I had hoped, but a lot of it was due to Rick being very detail oriented, thorough, and overall doing an excellent job. I would hire Rick Grosskopf again and highly recommend him to anyone looking for a professional, dependable, and hard worker who will get the job done. Thanks again to you, your wife Lori and your entire team.
Tim was great! I initially hired him to fix the glass of a broken window and then learned that he has many skills then asked him assist in a few other tasks: repair siding, repair garage door & fill a whole on my siding. His prices are fair and he was flexible with my availability! Would definitely recommend and use in the future! Thank you
Andrew bailed me out in a pinch when another provider was unable to show 2 days in a row and I had pending guests expected at my home the next day. His estimate was thorough and professional. He is courteous, respectful, and personable. His attention to detail and quality of his work is remarkable! He has power-washed my house, shed, garage, their roofing, and decks; they have never been cleaner. He is starting on staining/painting decks and structure trim. I have every confidence this will also be done to exceed my expectations. I have him in my speed dial and know I will turn to him again.
Ryan was a great GC to work with when I renovated a 700 sq ft basement rec room. The demo was done cleanly in one day and in under a week the entire basement was rewired, can lights hung, drywall hung, taped and sanded, new trim installed, caulked and prep. Fast, clean and good quality work!
Mike did an excellent job. Initially gave me a sight unseen quote, then provided an in-person estimate. We agreed on a price, Mike showed up next day when he said he would & completed project in a timely fashion. Mike removed old & applied new caulk to exterior windows on our 2 story home. Windows are now sealed again & look great! I had called other handymen (not via Thumbtack) that gave me estimates, agreed to do the work, then never showed up. Now, I'm one satisfied customer, would use Mike again, would highly recommend to others!
Kevin has done an extensive amount of work in my house. He has been indispensable during the remodeling of my home, and is one of the few contractors that I trust. Some of the more noteworthy projects he has done for me were to rebuild the structural walls on my first floor to create an open concept. He has reframed walls to accept wider exterior doors, including a double French style patio door. He has installed all of my new kitchen cabinets and countertops. He has also done much of the wide board trim on my first floor. I can say that after observing his work over the years first hand, he does an excellent job. I would recommend him to anyone, not only for his framing and structural skill, but for his trim and finishing work too. I have also seen his exterior work (siding, roofing, aluminum wrapping), and it is of the same quality as everything else he does. He has a lot of experience, and it shows in his work.
I have been working with Character Improvements for over 5 years now and could not be happier with their services, response to maintenance requests and timeliness of addressing urgent matters. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to have exterior work done around their home or building. Rob Arent Hunt Management
Dan put steel support posts along one whole wall of our basement. He provided a detailed quote, did excellent, high-quality work and did it very quickly for me. I liked the quality of the posts and the fact that they were made to fit my house. He designs it to fit your situation. My supports needed extra brackets per code, he made them. Dan comes through and I would highly recommend him to anyone.
