We came home from work in the evening to discover a door to our home had been broken into and kicked off its hinges, and we needed an emergency fix for the night. They sent someone to our house within an hour to put the door back in and secure it for the night until we had time to make other arrangements. The person who did the work was polite and helpful. We had a very positive experience and would use this provider again for other projects.

The bathroom in our 1911-built home was falling apart. The tub's hot water faucet was totally broken, spun completely around and didn't do a thing. We had to turn the faucet on and off by lifting a countertop and using the shut-off valve. 1950's plastic tile was falling off the walls. Original 100-plus year-old linoleum was disintegrating....More /> Before contacting Platinum, we talked to a good friend, who works for a different remodeling company here in town. He did an estimate for us, which came out at $15,800. Even with this high amount, it was assuming we would provide the cabinets and fixtures, do the painting, etc. We were blown away, and not in a good way. This friend's approach to giving an estimate was basically to bad-mouth our current bathroom in order to explain how much more fabulous it would be after it's done. ("This room has an awful layout." "That tub's so shallow it's not even worth it." etc) He was very interested in relocating the tub plumbing controls to an adjacent closet wall so the tub could be moved 2 or 3 inches closer to the exterior wall. I told him I wasn't interested in moving the tub, but the idea stuck with him. His estimate also didn't include installing a heated floor, which we opted to do in the end. Instead of feeling inspired to renovate and empowered to make decisions, I was left feeling bummed out about my house, and frustrated that I didn't feel I was being heard. We decided our friend is a good friend, but that we didn't want to mix friendship and business, and that we needed a different contractor.
We contacted Platinum, and the experience was a night-and-day difference. At first we thought we could get by with a minor cosmetic spruce-up, and wanted Platinum to do some demo work for us, and then install new toilet, cabinets and accessories for us once we were done refinishing the floors and painting the walls. As soon as we started the demo, we realized there was no way to salvage the 1950's plastic tiles on the walls, and there was no pine-plank subfloor for me to refinish. So a bigger renovation it would have to be. Tile walls, wainscoting, chair rail, new toilet, cabinets and heated marble floor were called for.
The genius of this company is that it's a hybrid company -- both

service and remodeler. I think their job minimum is approximately $150. When you're looking to renovate, usually companies have a much higher minimum job amount, in the thousands of dollars, because they don't take on small jobs.
I found
Minneapolis Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
to be very cordial and responsive in my initial contact. He handed our job off to his sister
Minneapolis Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
, who manages the Small Projects.

is wonderful. Super responsive, very helpful, and great at providing suggestions. My 7 year-old son loved her off the bat and invited her to join our family within 5 minutes of meeting her. She did a super job scheduling the workers and subcontractors. It worked like clockwork, and I always knew who would be coming to my house and when. We did most of our communicationns via email, sending links to products back and forth, etc. Really convenient. Dick (

and
Minneapolis Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
's father) is a great craftstman. He installed the cabinets and most of the woodwork in the bathroom. He's also just a nice person to be around. I was a little sad when Dick packed up his stuff and left.

did the tile work and much of the finishing work. He pays great attention to detail, makes sure everything lines up perfectly.
You know the best part about my experience? Not one person involved in the project made me stupid, ever! They patiently presented options when my house threw them curve balls, they didn't question my desire to keep our vintage 1950's medicine cabinet and sink, and
Minneapolis Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
never laughed at my initial idea of refinishing pine subfloors in a bathroom.
Another nice thing is that they were willing to let me do some of the work to keep costs down. I assembled cabinets, demo'd the wall tile and linoleum floor, and did all the painting. I think some contractors have an all-or-nothing approach, where they won't install cabinets if the client assembles them, etc. We also took care of measuring, ordering and installing the granite countertops ourselves.
Also, I was not limited to a particular brand, dealer or showroom when it came to selecting fixtures and materials. I found tile and a bath faucet I wanted from California, got the cabinets at IKEA.

and I just sat down in my living room with a list of what materials we needed, and agreed to who would be supplying what. It worked out just fine. I provided many of the materials (marble tile, toilet, cabinets, countertops, accessories), so those are not included in the $8,200.00 amount.
The Platinum folks were really nice to have around, and always very punctual. I had no qualms about them working in the house when we were not home. They work very hard and do a great job cleaning up the site at the end of each day.

is budget-conscious. At no point did I worry that this job was going to run out of control. Plumbing and electrical passed City inspection with zero issues.
We hope to renovate our kitchen in a year or two, and when we do, we will call Platinum. Period. We won't even both with multiple estimates. Once you've found a great company, you stick with them.

Very well.
Minneapolis Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
, the owner, treats customers and staff with respect and trust. It shows in the quality of the finished product and the steps to achieve it. Each project had a dedicated lead who communicated very well with us about progress. Predictable inconveniences, when the water might be off or when to expect noise, etc., were planned ahead of time. The leads were experienced in one of the trades so they brought expertise and organizational ability. The unforeseen was handled immediately and thoroughly. Several years later, a call is quickly returned. Wear & tear issues are addressed at reasonable cost.

Soon after I purchased the "Big Deal" I spoke with
Minneapolis Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
, the owner of the company. He stopped over to actually see the area I wanted worked on, then advised me on the kind of tile I should consider and places I could shop and cite his company for the contractor's discount. I selected, bought and picked up the tile.
Minneapolis Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
and another man were over laying tile one day and returned to grout the next day. I had removed all the old tile and grout and had the area surrounding the fireplace cleared of all furniture and floor covering so they did not have to spend time on that kind of thing. Nonetheless, they worked clean and neatly. It was a very small project but it mattered a lot to me to have this finished and done well.

We had had several negative experiences with other companies in an attempt to try to resolve the issues noted above, which occurred as a combo of ice dam and squirrel damage.
Our experience with Platinum was wonderful from start to finish. We accessed services through the

part of the company.

came out to do the estimate and coordinated all of the work. They are quite busy so the waiting list is a bit long, but it was worth the wait (I think the wait was maybe a month from the time of the estimate). Platinum was professional, thorough, timely, and super clean! They always left our house in good condition at the end of the day. They also went above and beyond, adding some projects on that weren't in the initial estimate and taking care of some small items that came up along the way.

herself came out to finish some painting on a Saturday since our projects ended up taking longer than initially planned. Platinum subcontracts gutter installation. Gutters are great and were installed quickly.
A few weeks after the repairs, we noticed an issue with the rear storm door getting stuck. We e-mailed
Minneapolis Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
and she responded super fast--her dad came out the next morning to fix it.
We definitely plan to continue using Platinum for our
Minneapolis Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
needs, and hopefully some remodeling in the future!

In the beginning we went with J&J because their price quote seemed the most reasonable of the 3 or 4 that we gathered and they responded to our email inquiries almost immediately. As the job went on, that level of responsiveness proved to be one of their best attributes. We were always impressed by their quick response times whenever we sent them questions. Their carpentry work is excellent, their attention to detail is top notch, and they hold all of their subcontractors to their high standards. We also really appreciated their flexibility--we had a baby on the way and needed to have all major construction work done in our place before we brought home a

. J&J went out of their way to get the job on their schedule in a way that worked for us. Overall, we were very pleased with their work, would hire them again, and would recommend them to others without reservation.

Mr.
Minneapolis Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
works around our schedules and accommodates us last minute when it's necessary. He really cares about his customers. He gives solid advice, and I trust him completely to give us the straight story. He will tell us where we can cut costs and where we shouldn't skimp.
As far as the fence, he did a wonderful job. It's straight and looks beautiful.

He arrived on time, was friendly and very helpful. Some of the repairs I had were silly little things but I live alone and have no one to do that kind of thing. He willingly did everything I asked of him without an eye roll or a sarcastic remark. He did a beautiful and efficient job of hanging my heavy things and took the time to do all the other repair things correctly. HOWEVER, I FEEL THAT ANGIE'S LIST MISREPRESENTED HIM. They advertised him as a handyman($199 for 6 hrs of handyman work) and he truly is a contractor. He had a helper with him who was no help doing all my little dinky things BUT had he been doing a construction project, the 2nd person WOULD have been very helpful. I thought about it for a while and realized I didn't really feel like I got my 6 hours worth and called him and told him and he was VERY willing to make it up to me. As I said, he was looking for construction/remodeling work, which is why he had the helper with him. I would hire him again in a minute. He is looking to make people happy and construction/remodeling is what he and his partner love to do. He was SO willing to make things right and never made me feel like I was bothering him. A+

helped me greatly on my bathroom, back hall and front door. I had a lot of work done by two other individuals, but they made mistakes and also left me with the hardest work undone. So

was a real lifesaver because he took on the most difficult parts of my project. He was exceptionally good at keeping me informed as to his work status. He was also very prompt, did a first-rate job, and his price was more than reasonable. I will definitely use

again for my next home project!
