They've done work for us before, and right now, they're doing work for the church that we belong to. The biggest thing for me is that any time I wasn't completely happy with something they were doing or I wanted something changed, they were very happy to accommodate us. Since we'd used them before, we were just very happy with their work. They've done hardwood floors, built on an addition, remodeled the bathrooms, and removed a wall for us. We just had a total remodeling when they came in. What was really good was they came in and said that we had a weight-bearing wall that we needed to reinforce. Then, they went up in the attic to make sure that we wouldn't get a crack in the ceiling. We wouldn't have known about that. They could have bypassed that, and within a couple of years, we would have had a nice crack in the ceiling. Their suggestions and their input with what we wanted were very, very good. We never had to call them back for anything after they were done. I'd give them an A+.
They tried not to make a mess of the house, so they were thoughtful. We had a kitchen remodeled along with a front hall and powder room. They did a bathroom upstairs for us about 15 years ago, and they caught on—in my little corner here in the neighborhood, there must be three or four other people who have used them since. They're A+.
From top to bottom, from the estimate to the finish, it was just great work, and I've used them several times. They completely redid the bathroom because I had some water damage, and everything was great. I would give them an A+.
I liked the quality of their work and the timeliness.
They were always on time, they did a good job, the workmanship was great, and they always cleaned up after themselves. We did a kitchen renovation, and then we put hardwood flooring in another room. It still looks great today. If a friend or neighbor asked me about them, I would recommend them, and I'd definitely give them an A.
They were on time, pretty close to their quote, and pretty meticulous in the work. They did a nice job basically doing a little bit of renovation in the living room and then some painting in a couple of rooms. I chose them because a friend that had work done by them recommended them to me. They get an A.
They've done work for my company before. They built the whole addition to one of my daycare centers, and they did fine. They're very good. I've had my share of contractors throughout the years, and they were probably one of the easiest to work with. If you don't like anything, you just go to the owner, and he'll take care of it. I'd use them again. They're an A company.
They were good at what they did, and they were very nice. They were always on target, on time, and everything. They did kitchen remodeling for me—removed a wall, painted, and rebuilt trim—and their workmanship was good. I chose them because they came recommended to me by a neighbor. I'd give them an A.
The professionalism of the technicians who did the work, the project leader, the communication, and the quality workmanship were very satisfactory from start to finish. They did a bathroom remodel. They do a lot of work in this area, which is how I found them. Their work is prevalent, and it speaks for itself. I'd rate them as an A.
The people, the quality of work, and the quality of materials made it so I would use them again. They remodeled the bathroom—the walls and the floors; everything but the shower. I chose them because I found them in the Best Pick Reports. I haven't had to call them back because everything is good. I'd give them an A.
