"I had my A/C units in the back yard replaced last year. I replaced small 12 SEER units with 16 SEER Trane units. My back yard is rather small, so the larger units required removal of the 5' fence that hid the older units. Since the Tranes vent ...more to the side, I needed someone to design an A/C screen that could (1) hide the units, (2) be removed in order to service the units, and (3) allow air flow around the units.
came over and provided a very creative and awesome design. Not only does it achieve the three requirements listed above, but it is also very beautiful. It was custom designed and constructed.
also provided me with written instructions as to how to remove the panels (as well as the entire unit) so that I can give these instructions to the A/C company when they come to service the units. I am very pleased with the design and the finished product. In addition, it was a pleasure to deal with
. He was responsive and professional. If I decide to put in an outdoor kitchen in the future, I will surely contact him again. "

"After 18 months of looking for a contractor we finally went with
. Reason being, we were literally able to "put" our hands on some of his previous work. Instead of just giving recommendations, he provided places to go!
His ...more prices were competitive, not to low, not to high. His contract was an easy read, protecting both parties. His payment terms were more than acceptable, wanting 50% / 25% / 25%, with the last 25% help until AFTER the punch list was finished.
Did I mention he accepts credit cards as well?
On starting the project his guys put protective paper on my living room wood floors, plastic over the bedroom carpets and plastic drapes over the doors, all to help protect from the demo. When doing the demo, they took very special care of the other flooring and did not run wheel
through the house, potentially hitting furniture and door jambs.
We were so pleased with the bathroom that while here we had him do the woodwork and built ins in the master closet.
I would recommend him!"

to paint the interior of our home right after we closed. We had to start on a certain date and so we booked them a month in advance. Sure enough,
called the night before to reconfirm the start and they showed up on time the next morning. I explained to
that we really had ...more to be done by the weekend and he said it wouldn't be a problem. His crew worked until at least 7pm each night to make sure the painting was done so we could move in on time. As they were wrapping up the interior, I started to notice a lot of rotten wood on the exterior of the house. I really wanted to wait on painting the exterior, but it was apparent that we had a serious issue. I showed
and he said they could start on the exterior right away. I was concerned about the cost because we had just spent a lot on the house, painting, moving, etc.. but I gave
a budget and he stuck to it. He even gave me a 10% discount for being a return customer. They ended up replacing a lot of the siding and priming and painting the entire house with 2 coats of paint like I asked. He was very attentive and stayed in touch with me during the entire process. I even signed off on all the prep work before they started the painting. I like that!! This was one of the best experiences with a contractor I've had. "
to paint my entire interior a few weeks ago. I had a tight budget and got a few estimates and they had the best price for the amount of work I wanted done. They started when they said they would and had a great 3 man crew that worked fast and clean!! I had lots of holes in my walls and they fixed them so good that you ...more cant even tell where they were! They finished in the amount of time they estimated and never changed the price on me. I got constant calls letting me know what was going on with the job and what would happen in the future. I liked all the communication from the crew leader as well. "
delivered on every promise per the agreement. The crew showed up on time each day and cleaned up each night. The crew chief explained everything to me each day and was available to answer all my questions. The house looks better than ever and we already rented out the space for more than our previous years numbers. The bid ...more never changed and the work was completed in a timely manner. We will use them on all of our personal homes and any other future projects. "
"I had two appointments where the dates and times were set. The contractor did not show up. nor did they call. I had taken off work, but no response. When I called to re-schedule they did, but also did not show up. nor call. They still haven't called to re-scedule.
was prompt and responsive originally to the contract. There were several inadequately finished sections of the contract, particularly the tile work. Some of the painting was not smooth, it obviously had dirt in the paint and Mr.
acknowledged that. I did not ask for it to be redone because it would ...more be a nightmare to redo. The tile work was supposed to be in the master shower. However, he on his own decided to do something in the other bathroom shower, which I had not asked for. He came back to do the redo on the tiles, and he is not a tile person. Neither was the person that originally did it, in my opinion. He messed up the floor of the shower so bad that I spent two days scraping it and then redoing it myself. The wrong color grout was used and then when he came back to fix it he used a caulk that is now pealing away. The caulk he used was inappropriate, he should have used grout. This also occurred in the second bathroom that I did not even want him to touch. It was fine and now it is all messed up. A lot of the other things on the job were good. The bathroom situation was just very frustrating. I still do not have the situation resolved but I do not feel comfortable using him to fix it because I do not think he can."
"Initial meeting with contractor went well. He was punctual and professional. He explained the materials I needed to obtain to get the job done. The two handymen that showed up to do the job were also very professional and knowledgeable. Unfortunately, they were some things that we missed or mis-calculated so I had to make additional trips to the hardware ...more store to get the right items. The job went smooth. I was pleased with their work. "
"it went well. the workers were diligent and careful. they prepared the room before working and clean up after the working was completed.
have received numerous compliments about the new and elegant look.
"Our backyard is an outdoor Oasis! We live in a 3 story townhouse that has a small backyard and
helped us work through the best design for our needs. It was great working with
on the design.
and his crew did an awesome job. The not so pretty side of the fence that has the frame ...more boards was going to be behind the cold counter that would make it possible for things to fall behind the counter;
had the great idea of putting up fence pickets oh that part of the fence so the fence was solid behind the counter and nothing could fall behind it. The work was done on schedule and the crew was great about cleaning up at the end of each day.
went above and beyond; he and his son worked into the night to get our Oasis completed so that we could enjoy it on the 4th of
. We are extremely happy with our Backyard Oasis and recommend him to everyone we know. He actually is doing patio work for one of our friends. "
