He sold the job on providing a 36" log set. He provided a 24" set. When confronted with the discrepancy, he said he would refund the $200 difference or replace the logs. I chose the $200. After numerous contacts from me to him, I gave up. Eventually I purchased a set of the right sized logs but still have the smaller burner. This contractor is NOT to be trusted with your money.

The Snow Guards fell off the house during the snow of 2013-2014. Some of the Snow Guards bent at a 45 degree angle and held to the roof while over 20 of them ripped out of the metal roof leaving approximately 40 holes in the roof.
I called
Fort Dodge Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
immediately when it happened and he went up on a ladder and caulked "what he could reach". I repeatedly asked him for a permanent repair on at least 3 occasions in 2014 and he did not come back to repair them. In fact he said, "You asked me to put snow guards on 7/8" roofing, it's really your problem"! I told him I'm a homeowner, not a contractor if you didn't think snow guards should be installed, I would have expected you to tell me. It's interesting that the snow guards only ripped out of the roof on one side of the house.
I told him I was extremely concerned that the roof had holes in it and the rain would get in and cause damage.

never called back or more importantly made the repair.
It should also be noted that he was paid, $1,450 to install gutters on the garage and many of the clips that hold the gutters to the garage have fallen off!

Everyone we worked with at
Fort Dodge Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
was personable, courteous, and professional, and we were happy with their quality of work (especially the painter - he was great). The biggest issue we had was communication. We considered doing a bathroom remodel at the same time since our bathroom was already torn up, but due to communication issues we ended up deciding to skip the remodel and just have them complete only the repairs. Before we could commit to a remodel we needed both the estimate for just the repairs that
Fort Dodge Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
gave to our insurance company, and we needed a separate estimate for the remodel. We didn’t get either. We asked for the estimate for the repairs multiple times, but
Fort Dodge Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
never got it to us so we had to get it from the insurance company. As for the remodel estimate,
Fort Dodge Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
gave us a ballpark, very rough estimate, but when it was time to get a more specific estimate we never got one. They even had different people come out (such as a flooring person, a glass person, counter person, etc.) to talk to us and take measurements in order to give us a more specific estimate, yet we never got an estimate. This was all due to constant miscommunication. We kept waiting for information from
Fort Dodge Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
before we could make certain decisions, and yet
Fort Dodge Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
kept waiting for us to make decisions. For instance, they didn’t seem to understand (even though we explained it) that we needed prices for different kinds of flooring before we could make a decision on what type of flooring fit our budget (i.e. how much it would cost – based on the measurements that they took – to do the bathroom floor in vinyl vs. ceramic tile vs. natural stone tile.) That seems like common sense, right? Yet they were waiting for us to tell them what kind of flooring we wanted before they did the estimate. So a week or two would go by while we both considered the next step to be in the other person’s court. And this is only one example. Finally we completely scrapped the remodel and just had
Fort Dodge Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
do only the repairs. We were tired of not having a toilet upstairs and just needed it done. (To give you a time reference, the water damage happened in
Fort Dodge Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
, but it took until May before the repairs were done. This was how long we went back and forth.) To be fair, maybe the communication issues were just as much our fault as theirs. But we’ve never had an issue with other companies in the past so I have no idea why we would have an issue with
Fort Dodge Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
. Either way, the communication was bad enough that we won’t hire them in the future.

I purchased their "BIG DEAL", a bathroom remodel for 6K with a down payment of $599 on
Fort Dodge Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
4, 2014. After contacting them several times (sometimes it took 2 weeks for a return phone call), they did not give us any direction on how to proceed. They do not have contractor sources for main items like bathtubs, faucets, etc. When I asked if we needed to order everything, they didn't know and they told us that it was the first time they had done anything like this and they would be happy to refund my deposit. They claimed that they did not receive the money from Angie's List, and suggested that we try to get the refund from them. We have been going around and around with Angie's List for about 3 weeks now, and they will not refund my $599. They suggested that we contact J&T Roofing. They cannot refund after 30 days. My question is "How do you know that this isn't going to work before your 30 days is up?" It's not like I purchased a lawn mowing job. It was for a bathroom remodel. $599 is a lot of money!!! I guess I will have to talk to my lawyer.

Zandy showed up on time for the estimate, got us the estimate promptly and made a number of changes as we thought through things. He started on time and got right to it. There were a number of glitches, not caused by Zandy or his team, but he jumped right in and solved every problem without any trouble to us (he even had our carpet stretched and smoothed out in the entire condo when his carpet guy was in -- just because he wanted it to look better!). The cost went somewhat over the bid, but that was me selecting more expensive fixtures, not anything Zandy or his team did, but he kept us informed of every dollar. The bathroom is beautiful. I really depended on Zandy's advice for various decision points we had and he came through for each one and was great to work with. Everything went very well. I have already referred him to a friend and look forward to having him do our kitchen in a couple of years. If there is a grade higher than "A" Zandy deserves it.

This company did excellent work. They were not the cheapest bidder on our work, but we decided to use them because of past Angie's List reviews. I am very glad I did. They truly go the extra mile to make everything perfect. Even though we made changes throughout the project, they were very accommodating and gave us reasonable prices for the changes we made during construction. All of the workers that came to our home were super friendly and highly skilled. If you are looking for a construction company that will perform well and pay attention to every detail, I highly recommend

Working with Nick was an absolute pleasure. He listens to our needs and exceeded our expectations. We look forward to working with him on future projects. Rest assured,
Fort Dodge Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
and Contractors are the way to go.
As with any project there were a few speed bumps and unexpected things that arose, but Nick did a wonderful job of explaining them and finding the perfect solution. For a first time home re-modeler, we felt very comfortable the whole time.

Mr.
Fort Dodge Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
did great work. He arrived quickly to give the estimate. Although his estimate was not the cheapest we had (also not the most expensive), we went with Mr.
Fort Dodge Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
because he was responsive to phone calls, answered any concerns we had, and seemed all around knowledgeable and professional. We think we made a good choice. When weather or other obstacles out of his control appeared, he adapted well and got things done quickly. He also was very friendly, did not go over budget, and, most importantly, the final product looks great.

I would recommend
Fort Dodge Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
as a vendor for remodels. I was consistently impressed with Zandy's professionalism. The subcontractors he used were knowledgeable, punctual and respectful. A couple of minor items came up throughout the course of the project (not a surprise - we were ready for it) but overall, we are completely satisfied with the finished product and our experience with

Fort Dodge Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
has a variety of remodeling skills. He was able to do everything we asked of him. He even put in extra hours to finish the work on time as we needed the room finished by Christmas. He prices are very reasonable and fair. This fall he is putting in new windows in our 85 year old home. After he completes this work I am sure I will write another very good review.
