I purchased a home that had 30 year fiberglass dimensional shingles put on the roof in the months just before. 4 years later there are leaks everywhere and the shingles are disintegrating. The seller provided me with pertinent documents and warranties of various appliances and upgrades, which included the roofing work. Over the past 13 months I have called about once a month to follow up on my initial call in early 2013. The old man that answers the phone says he will have "him (owner?)" call me back. Never happened. I have a copy of the contract that was signed by
and included a 30 year warranty that covers leaks from "faulty materials or workmanship." I have been cordial and professional in each call, even pleading for someone to call me back. Nope.

To sum it up in one word, EXCELLENT!!! From design to completion, it wasn't always easy, but it was always pleasant. The hardest part for me was deciding on a design that I liked and that fit into my limited budget. I gave them a rough idea of what I wanted and they gave me a few options of things I could do with the money and space available. All of the design choices were wonderful and I had a difficult time choosing one. I ended up mixing different aspects from each design until we finally hit on one that jumped out at me and said THIS IS IT !!! Once the layout was decided they sent a kitchen cabinet design consultant to help me finalize my vision of the kitchen. They were so patient and kind with me during this process. Once the design phase was complete, work began immediately.
I was given a tentative schedule showing how work would progress, and it was fairly accurate. It was nice to have an idea of what was going to happen each week.
I expected lots of unforeseen problems with such an extensive renovation, but things progressed smoothly with no problems worth mentioning. Coordinating so many trades to work in such a limited area is difficult, and the very few times it got a little crowded, plans were changed efficiently and effortlessly. If anyone was irritated by the change in plans they never let it show. Everyone maintained a professional and courteous demeanor at all times.
The entire crew was trustworthy and respectful. I felt very comfortable leaving a key for them to let themselves in on the few mornings I wasn't home. They were all decent, polite young men who never hesitated to help me when I was either loading or emptying the car when I had to do laundry or shopping.
The work was completed within 8 weeks. I feel the price and timeframe were totally acceptable considering the amount of work done.
I think the only thing I didn't like about the job was that I missed everyone when the job was completed. If they hadn't been so likeable I wouldn't have missed them as much. But I seem to be filling this void with my new, BEAUTIFUL kitchen. I can't seem to stay out of it. I'm always in there cooking and to date I've gained 12 lbs!!!! I'm glad they widened the entry door into the kitchen, because at this rate I'm going to need the extra wide opening.
Some of my family members in Louisiana were so impressed with my kitchen, they've been inspired to repaint and remodel their kitchens. Too bad
isn't in Louisiana.
I'd hired them before and would not hesitate to hire them again.

It was a wonderful experience,and I had been putting it off dreading it, but the project manager
Birmingham Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
Peek was always friendly helpful and on top of things, making sure at each step that I was satisfied. It came out exactly what I wanted. I was running under the estimate of 9500 , and they were doing such a great job, they traded me other work for a lot of other projects that did run the overage of 500, but what was extra , was agreed as extra. But I also had them rehang and repair another door, fix an outside sunroom door, and removed and replaced 2 non-functioning locks on the from door with higher grade locked with better mechanisms. They always draped everything and minimized dust on everything. Then cleaned up the bath and bedroom --a service not included in the estimate, but which they threw in. There motto was to keep the customer happy, even if they came up a little short here and there. I will have to save up some funds, but plan to use them again for any project they can do.

Overall things went well, the rain caused a delay but Mr.Banks was always accessible to us with updates on when work was expected to be done.
Our phone calls were always returned in a short amount of time. If there was a question Mr.Banks always got back to us with the answer or came to the house to see for himself.

I feel that quality materials and workman are used by

and I would not hesitate to use them again and recommend them to friends.

We are very happy with Mr.
Birmingham Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
's work and service and recommend him highly. He does superb work, communicated well, seemed sincerely concerned about our satisfaction, and his character is above reproach. He and every member of his crew conducted themselves professionally and as complete gentlemen over the combined total of at least a couple of weeks working at our home. We contacted him, and a handful of other contractors, after reading some of the reviews on Angie's list. We had just purchased a foreclosure which contained a lot of wall paper and a paneled 18' high great room that my wife could not stand. We had no idea what to do with it or how, we just knew we wanted it gone. We also were considering replacing an ugly dilapidated double front door with a more attractive and secure option.
To make comparison easy, we scheduled all of our estimate appointments with the various contractors we were considering for the same week. Mr.
Birmingham Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
showed up on time and spent quite a bit of time discussing the upcoming renovations with us. He gave EXCELLENT input on various ways to approach the work we wanted done, and even gave us some helpful suggestions on some work we planned on completing ourselves. An odd construction feature of our home (a small protruding 1" overhang 6 feet up the great room wall) left other contractors scratching their heads, but Mr.
Birmingham Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
assured us that finishing it out in a way that looked attractive would not be an issue. He provided us with multiple options regarding how to complete the work as well as the level of completion in order to provide us with some flexibility on price and keep within our budget. He prepared a written proposal and delivered it promptly. His quotes were reasonable and we felt confident about his abilities to complete the work. He also pointed out potential issues and solutions that others had missed, or may have waited until work started to point out and add on. Mr.
Birmingham Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
was very straightforward, and it was nice to not have any surprises.
When work started, his crew showed up on time and ready to work. They were professional, cheerfully answered any questions I had, and went the extra mile by doing things like replacing insulation in areas of the exterior wall where there was none and patching a hole downstairs that our eletrician cut out and that was not part of the agreed work. Our greatroom has been completely transformed by the work they did and the other rooms of the house have been finished off such that you can't tell wallpaper was ever even there. As with any drywall work, you notice some imperfections when you get up close come painting time. On the day that Mr.
Birmingham Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
was finishing up our door installation I mentioned to him that there were a few spots that could use some touch-up. He had a man come over and finish up that same day. He also addressed the issue of the drywall being much thicker than the original paneling with some inventive trim work that resulted in a much better appearance than we expected.
Although we initially were not sure if we would replace the front door or not, after seeing how well the other work was turning out, we decided to go ahead and have it done. Mr.
Birmingham Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
brought over literature and brochures from various manufacturers and helped us pick out a door, spending quite a bit of time going over options with us and offereing suggestings. We appreciated his level of involvement in our projects because we often were clueless and in need of guidance. We went with a 36" door with two full length sidelights, being installed in the place of double 36" doors with no windows. The new door is now in, looks amazing, is level, plumb and all the holes line up. They trimmed it out and sealed so well that it looks like it's part of the original construction, although I would argue that the new work is of higher quality than the original construction.
We have more projects in the future that weren't in the budget now, and Mr.
Birmingham Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
will be the first person we call when we get around to them. We are completely satisfied with his work, and he even managed to teach us remodeling newbies a few things along the way. He even let me borrow his step ladder for a few weeks!

Our project began in Sept. of 2004 and finished Feb. 2005. They removed an existing enclosed deck, added 25 feet to the back of the house. We appreciated the cleanliness of the crew, the promptness, the creativity in the extra touches. we were only without a kitchen for 1 week. We did have a baking set-up in the existing dining room and the fridge in the 'new room' but really felt that we were minimally inconvenienced over all. There was a snag in the finish to the flooring, all hardwoods, but that was resolved quickly.

was very responsive when I called and he provided examples of other jobs he had completed. He answered the phone each time I called (or called back soon thereafter) and even provided aesthetic suggestions when I had to decide among various rail/spindle types, providing visual aids in the form of binders with photo pages. He arrived in a company van with his name on the side, and I must say I was very impressed with the cleanliness/organization within the work van.

worked with one other guy, both were extremely conscientious and cleaned up every speck of sawdust after their day's work. I was so comfortable with his presence I left the house to run errands while he and his partner worked. They even put up a work tent outside my door when it rained so as not to damage their equipment, track mud through the house, and continue work in horrible weather conditions. After the job was completed, he took an 'after' shot of his work and then showed me various other projects he's completed. He obviously enjoys his work and it shows. I will definitely use

again in the future for any carpentry work we hire out. Overall, very professional and beautiful work - a true artisan in his trade!

Trettle gave me an estimate for the work before starting. He bought the materials and installed the landing and steps while we were away. The job was finished on time and amazingly close to the estimate. The job was well done.

Asked for a quote for several small renovations around our condo. They were prompt in replying and easy to schedule with. They came out to do the free estimate within days of initial contact. Appreciated the assessment and honesty regarding cost-effective options. It took one week to receive the estimate. Pricing was above our budget so we did not proceed with the work but appreciate their help!
