"There were a total of four fans that he installed . he kept me informed of the progress, he also left no mess behind and even vacuumed the rooms when he was done. I will be calling him again .

"One crew member came back a couple of times more to work on the drywall. I asked him to replace the carpet on the stairs, as I did not have the equipment to do this properly, and the crew had removed the carpet to prep for the waterproofing job. On the last visit, this crew member put the carpet back in place without using the carpet pad that had been sitting next to it. Also, he did it so that instead of aligning cuts in the carpet that should be
Indianapolis Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
where the stair risers and treads meet, the cuts were tacked down so they were across the tops of several stair treads. This was clearly not done properly. Removing the carpet to put down pad and align everything properly is likely to damage the carpet. I expect that I'm going to need to purchase new carpet and hire someone else to install it. I contacted
Indianapolis Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
to let him know what had happened. He said he would take care of it and would call me back. I have not received a return call.

"First of all,
Indianapolis Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
Cuppy is a fantastic communicator. We always knew what was going on and when. She is big on texting which suited us great. At first, the quote was for a two day job, but they revised it as we talked more about what we wanted in the room. So, we knew up front that it was going to cost more than we orginially thought. As with all projects of this nature, there are logical considerations, so when a contractor says "3 day job", it will take longer than that. And it did. But we knew that because
Indianapolis Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
was always letting us know the night before what was coming the next day. There were a couple misfires, but nothing catastrophic. As an example,
Indianapolis Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
(who is lead) showed us a pamphlet of door options. We talked a bit about which one we wanted. The next day, we had changed our minds, but the door had already been built overnight by them. We thought that we were getting a prefab door that could be easily switched, but that wasn't the case. NOT a big deal, but it was a hiccup. Job came in a couple hundred under the bid and we have a great room to store our wine collection. I would absolutely use

again.

"Overall, it went well. We had a small issue with scheduling. On the appointed time, Toom was a "no-show." However, he called me and apologized profusely. We set another time and he was then prompt.
Once
Indianapolis Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
arrived, he listened to me tell him what we needed as far as home renovation is concerned. He took some measurements, walked around our property, and gave me a high-level "guesstimate" as to what our addition would cost. He was thorough in explaining the issues he would face regarding our property lines and the current layout of the house on our land. Although he said he would be happy to go back to his office and prepare a formal estimate, he kindly warned me of extra expenses due to our land limitations. We decided not to go forward on the project.
Overall, I thought
Indianapolis Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
was polite, friendly, and helpful. Although he was a "no-show" for the first appointment, the way he handled the mistake was professional. It would not have kept me from working with him.

who installed the drywall were framers (as was stated by owner,
Indianapolis Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
), who came to make repairs after I informed
Indianapolis Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
the workmanship was not acceptable! However,
Indianapolis Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
stated he was requested to get this job done in a hurry & they were who he had available. They admitted to not having the materials they preferred to use & the seam tape was visible on completion and I had to request they clean up after themselves of dust, globs of drywall mud & trash. A kindergarten class could have done a better job & wouldn't have asked for a beer for the ride home!

did not come onsite (website claims he's always on-site) to witness the complaints.

, carpenter of 16 yrs who I came to realize was a one man show began to gut the bathrooms. One 60+ arthritic person to perform a HOME RENOVATION!!!! Although
Indianapolis Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
"talked the talk" & did seem to have some knowledge of his craft, he had no pride in his work & many of his projects exhibited problems or failed altogether within 2-4 weeks. Even as
Indianapolis Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
as hanging a medicine cabinet, didn't even last a week before coming loose from the wall!
By the way, I need to mention that the house was completely occupied throughout this helter/skelter FIASCO!!! TOTAL lack of regard for us in any capacity.
Indianapolis Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
, on
the rare occasion he would be onsite, would walk into the house & not even acknowledge my 87 yr. old mother sitting on the couch .The living room & one bedroom were our living quarters for the 8 months, yes EIGHT MONTHS of this NIGHTMARE!
Indianapolis Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
remodeled the full bath which was a 6 week ordeal just for the shower install. We had to go to my
Indianapolis Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
to shower. On completion the shower floor was not constructed properly, the drain sat at an upward incline & the water could not completely drain. Once again,
Indianapolis Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
could not bother to come on-site to observe the problem. He stated the problem was the 1" tiles I chose for the shower floor. (Didn't believed that line of crap!)
Indianapolis Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
stated he used the wrong type of grout (something he hadn't used before) and it did not set up properly.
Indianapolis Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
tried to claim we used the shower too soon, but how do you know anything when you do not supervise the job & know what type of work your employee is performing? I finally requested
Indianapolis Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
to come to the job site as there were too many issues that needed attention & now the ceilings in both bedrooms were cracking. It took 2 weeks for
Indianapolis Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
to show!
Indianapolis Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
& his sidekick
Indianapolis Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
came to fix the ceilings and were highly upset to have been blamed for the problem when discovering the problem was with the poor, crumbling construction of the half a** job
Indianapolis Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
had performed on the foundation. By this time it is now November and I have had to hire a structural engineer to check the house. Okay, PAY ATTENTION here people....NO PERMIT by the Super Service Award Angie's List member!! So, very good lesson to learn......Code Enforcement checks the work when a permit is pulled to make sure the job is properly executed, IT IS FOR YOUR PROTECTION! Not just a way for the county to make money off of contractor's as these guys will tell you when they do not pull permits. I found out the hard way! The structural engineer was so appalled by the work and the materials paid for and NOT used & was the one who explained the reason & importance of permits. Not pulling permits CHEATS the county and YOU! & allows these crooks to skimp on supplies/materials!!!. And not properly performing the repairs in order of standard procedures has resulted in several recurring problems. The structural repair should have been completed BEFORE proceding to replacing ceilings, walls, floors, or any of the remodeling projects! 10 months later I'm once again hiring a contractor to make the necessary repairs to the foundation. But believe me I've learned alot about the hiring process & ensuring the CAPABILITIES & INTEGRITY of the people I will hire in the future. Check your references & the license/bond/ins of Angie's List (or ANY contractor/handyman) as they state these contractors have the proper credentials @ signing, but you, the consumer, are responsible to make sure they are still valid when you hire!! DO NOT hesitate to ask for PROOF! And check with your county's list of licensed contractor's to ensure they pull permits and make sure they post on the premises where the work is being performed. Do your homework to prevent any contractor/handyman the "scamability" to rip you off. No permits for
Indianapolis Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
since 2007 when researched!
Indianapolis Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
tried to tell me, when questioned, why (when discovered) the foundation work was started in
Indianapolis Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
and it is now Oct/Nov & there are no concrete footers or permanent foundation support that he was waiting for the house to settle!!!! Really? Common sense/logic will laugh all over that remark as well as
Indianapolis Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
's " I supervise this job by phone everyday!" Really, again, REALLY??? A home renovation you supervise by phone? Also explains the alleged story about how his roofing crew during this time started removing the roof from the wrong house before he, the supervisor, showed up. And just quite possibly might explain why there was no knowledge of the problems/delays your employee was not telling you.
Indianapolis Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
stated he had seen
Indianapolis Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
do some awesome work, but he tends to tire after a few days & he guessed he should have been talking to me. Gets tired after a few days & you employed him to do a 1 man show home renovation???
At this point I did consult the Indiana Law Association. The attorneys I consulted with told me I had to give
Indianapolis Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
the opportunity to fix the problems, but no more exchange of money until the job was completed & to satisfaction. While trying to get the rest of the house finished and the foundation/crawl space completed
Indianapolis Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
hurt his back & could not complete. CE Enterprises was brought in to finish. Once again,
Indianapolis Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
DID NOT come on-site to supervise/observe the work & CE Enterprises had NOT been previously employed by
Indianapolis Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
. When they got to the shower to redo the floor & drain.....HUGE problems discovered with the plumbing repairs still leaking, the flooring of the shower was about to collapse, walls leaking posing a huge hazard as dangerously close to electrical wires! The shower was ripped out from ceiling to floor & reconstructed! This time using the proper materials to protect & waterproof! Another 6 weeks to have to go to my
Indianapolis Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
house for us to shower! CE Enterprises did, I believe, the best they could with the
Indianapolis Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
-rigged mess they were handed.
When they stated they were finished (Feb 2013) and left, there was no word from
Indianapolis Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
for nine days.
I'm quite sure you have determined before now that the renovation would Not be completed by
Indianapolis Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
!. The rest of the house will have to be completed by someone else! Had I not, in good faith, (& learn from this) paid most of the bill, I would not have allowed as much work done. I was literally sick to my stomach dealing with
Indianapolis Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
of
Indianapolis Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
and his band of ridiculous cohorts & their crap excuses/reasons. When
Indianapolis Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
finally called it was not for a final inspection/walk-thru. He simply asked to collect money!!!! Yeah, did not happen!! He was told not to trespass on my property! So, he asked CE Enterprises to "scare" me into paying as he would not finish paying them unless I paid him. Unfortunately I just didn't "scare" and CE Enterprises hired by
Indianapolis Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
, to my knowledge have not been fully paid. And as witnessed all the time by media reports, you CANNOT rely on our judicial system to be honorable & "JUSTICE"
Yes, I know there are many good reviews for this "Super Service" contractor.....BUT, be afraid, be very afraid of what
Indianapolis Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
beneath your shingles! Platnium Painting Group did not complete their repairs and
Indianapolis Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
proved his "scumability"! And
there was never any clean-up in 8 months by
Indianapolis Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
. We constantly cleaned up dust, buckets of grout, trays of drywall mud, picked up tools, moved supplies to walk in rooms. CE Enterprises cleaned up & hauled all the trash outside for us!!!
Well folks, there are eight months of countless specific details about this horror story I do not have the space here to relate. However I believe
you can understand and I do hope learn from this that even with a reference & an Angie's List membership YOU must do your "homework" checking the HONESTY & INTEGRITY of the license/bond/ins claims of these contractors. Again, ASK for PROOF!! Check with your county about permits(the building dept & code enforcement) to ensure your protection against these con artists. The contractors that are now coming in to give estimates to repair
Indianapolis Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
Generals' work have stated "it's CRIMINAL what he's done!" and "the top 5 WORST HACK JOBS I've seen in 22 years!!" So here I go....several thousand $ to fix!
Indianapolis Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
with his q**** smirk, eye-rolling conversations telling me I'm crazy to expect quality is the most ill-mannered, dis-honest, despicable person ever!
Remember (as I'm told)

on Homes #1

.....NEVER pay up-front!!
Good Luck to Everyone!

and crew were very responsive and professional. Everything that I asked to be done was done well and the people that were filtering in and out of my house through a key code on my back door were very professional and extremely friendly. I have a dog that is a bit aggressive and annoying and I never got any bad feedback from her or the team. I'm very happy with all of my house improvements!

"We have used RJ & E for various work in our home since 2008. The most recent was a full kitchen, bath and laundry room remodel. This project included new floors, ceilings, drywall..you name it. We ripped everything down to the studs and started new. We cannot say enough about the level of professionalism and courtesy when it comes to the owner and staff. They showed up every day they were scheduled, and always on time-often times even early. Their workers were friendly and professional. The owner,
Indianapolis Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
, is on site every day, not only only to oversee the project, but to work on it as well. Every night before leaving, they made sure to clean up their job site. Due to my work schedule, and the large nature of the project, I was not able to home during most of the construction. RJ & E was the only contractor I felt comfortable allowing in my home when I was not there. This is very important to us, as our home was broken into shortly after we moved in the neighborhood. They answered all of my questions, and went above and beyond to make sure our home was exactly how we envisioned it. The scheduling process was very easy, and
Indianapolis Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
, who does all the scheduling did a great job of communicating with us. The project was finished on time, and the work was excellent. Our floors turned out beautifully, and were better than I expected. The kitchen and laundry room as well are exceptional. They really take pride in their work, and their business, and it shows. We have several more projects we would like to have done in our home, including a full basement remodel, a fire place remodel, and an addition to our house which would include a new master bed and bath, sunroom, and basement storage. We look forward to having RJ& E back to our home for these projects. They are the only company we will use. We highly recommend them for any work needed in your home.
