They're very fast, efficient, and very friendly. If I ever needed anything, I got through to somebody right away. They replaced all of our carpet downstairs, and they also replaced one of the side panels and the interior bottom panel of our kitchen cabinet. They're an A+.
They're doing work for me now. Their follow-up is really good. The project managers are on top of everything. They keep you involved every step of the way, and that's why I went back to them. They did some remodeling for me a year ago, but not as much as they are doing now. It's a shell, and we are rebuilding basically inside the shell. They're very good. They're always calling and saying they're doing this or that on this stage, and they follow up. They're always in your ear giving you updates and stuff like that. The service while they're doing the job is what I like. I heard about DFW Improved from a designer that I am using for this complete remodel. He had used them before on a job and said that they were very good, their communication was fabulous, and that he really liked dealing with them, so that is how I got involved with them. I want to give them an A.
They did a redo of my master bath. They did the floors, countertops, tiles, glass, and paint—pretty much a whole redo. What I liked about them the most is that they made it convenient for scheduling, and I really liked the contact that they used. They were very professional. They took care of my home—they covered everything they could, and they cleaned up after themselves. They were highly, highly professional, and that's probably what would always make me use them again. I'd give them an A.
DFW Improved put in a new shower. They did the plumbing stuff, and they also retiled. They kept me informed of what was going on and what they would be doing each day. They get an A grade from me.
They showed up on time, did a great job with the product, and listened to all my concerns. They were very engaged in getting the work done and completing it. We had a loft, and they filled it in and added a pocket door to essentially enclose it. I'd give them an A+.
They screened in a back patio for me. They were there when they said they were going to be there, and they did what they said they were going to do in a timely manner. They're A+. We had some issues, but they took care of it.
They did the job that they said they were going to do and charged me the price that they said they were going to charge me, so everything was good. They fixed some drywall and changed out an exterior door. I'd say they get an A+.
They were great. They were on time and very responsive, and they gave me exactly what I was looking for. They were remodeling a balcony area on the outside of the house. I talked to a couple of other companies, but there wasn't the kind of rapport that I had with Gary Simms. That made DFW Improved stand out a little bit more. I'd rate them as an A+.
We had some remodeling done on our house and some work done in our kitchen. They're very straightforward and very easy, and they followed up really well. They had a lot of great ideas for what they wanted to do. They did what they said they were going to do, and it cost what they said it was going to cost. It was, all around, a very good experience. The workmanship was great, and they were clean and tidy. They get an A+.
DFW Improved did a master bathroom remodel. They were responsive. They did the work they said they were going to do, and they did it well. I'd give them an A+.
