There was very good communication throughout this entire process.
is the field person who oversees the job daily and is the main point of contact.
is the office person. Both were pleasant to deal with and were very good at returning phone calls. After calling the office,
came out and we discussed the project and about a week later they provided a free estimate and rough design offering some very good suggestions as to what can be done. After we agreed on price the design was finalized and work began shortly after. Overall, the job went very well, there were a few hiccups over the course of the job that were to be expected, but they were taken care of right away. Watching the work take place wasn't pretty, but the crews cleaned up for the most part and were managed well by
and in the end I was very pleased with the finished product.

II am a new homeowner and was looking to get new counter tops and sink. I called this company based on its reviews on Angie's List and for the reason that they don't use subcontractors, which is stated by them on Angie's List and website. Originally, I was going to use Lowe's, but I didn't want to deal with subcontractors. The owner came out on Monday of last week and was very professional, knowledgeable and friendly. He explained to me that waterfall edging would not really work for my kitchen and shows seams/gaps. He also warned me ahead of time of possible leaking from a sink/faucet bought from a hardware store and the risks of high gloss counter tops. He then started talking about beveled edges and said that'd work for your kitchen. I took that as that is what I was getting and he gave me a quote. He said he or someone would drop off the contract in the next few days. This did not happen until the actual day of the job. The contract was a poorly written and given to me by one of the employees. He had me sign it and keep it. They didn't even get a copy of their own contract which makes no sense. He said that a guy would be there the next day to measure and I assumed that was his employee. The guy did show up the next day and on time but a truck pulled with the name Clover on it. I was confused because I thought this company didn't use subcontractors. Come to find out they do. I wasn't too happy at first but after meeting the guy and his apprentice I was very pleased at their professionalism. Out of this entire experience, I was most pleased with Clover Counters and would hire them again. At this point is when I discovered I was not getting beveled edges. The guy from Clover thought I was getting flat edges. I called the owner and he told me that beveled edges are expensive and he thought I wanted flat. I was confused because the day before he kept mentioning beveled edges. I agreed to flat because it is more affordable and the beveled really wouldn't have worked in our kitchen though I distinctly remember the owner stating it would. Clover said they'd be back next Monday between 2 and 3. I waited during the week to receive a phone call about when Express would come to rip out the old counters and never received one. I called Friday morning and left a message. At this point, I had been waiting all week to hear what time they were coming on Monday before Clover. I called again Saturday and spoke to an employee. He said that they would come Monday at 9 to rip out the old counters. I told him that doesn't work for me because I have work. He seemed annoyed. I don't understand why I wasn't asked what time is convenient for me first. I explained to him I get off at 12:45. He said we will be there at 1:00. Once again, he just assumed I worked 15 minutes from my home. I said ok because luckily I do work pretty close. He did tell me that they left a message for me about this. I checked my answering machine/caller ID and there were no messages/calls from them. That was frustrating. The day of the job, Monday,
8, 2013, Express shows up around 1:15 and comes to rip out the counters and sink. The two employees were very friendly and professional. They cleaned up their mess afterwards too. Little did I know that when they pulled out the dishwasher they actually disconnected one of the wires. At this time I didn't know that and I don't believe they knew that happened. Accidents happen and I completely understand that. Then, Clover comes and at this point there is 4 guys working. Because Express scheduled everything so close, Clover had to wait for Express to rip out the counters. So, everyone was working right on top of each other in a small kitchen. Clover finally installed and did a beautiful job. The guy and his apprentice were professional and nice. Clover even gave me a few tips on keeping the counters shiny and gave me their business card. Unlike Express, they were not taking personal calls, asking me for cell phone chargers, or damaging my cabinets. Clover went out of their way in my opinion to make this a pleasant experience. Finally, the Express plumbers come to install my sink. They were two younger guys. The one (I believe the owner's son) was very professional and explained to me about a problem they encountered with my sink and dishwasher. The dishwasher had a drain tube that was in the way of my sink's bowls. He said it wasn't installed properly anyways and was blocking them from putting the sink in. However, they could move it to make the sink fit but it would be an additional $150. I was fine with that because I really liked this sink and didn't want to have to return it. The son’s owner did his part and then left. He left the other employee by himself. This is when it went downhill. I was frustrated at Express already for their lack of communication and not returning calls and some confusion over the edges, but I was not going to judge them based on this because I'm sure this happens all the time. But, when the son's owner left, my mind was changed very quickly about my view of this company. The employee (a younger man) was finishing up the sink. He finished and we tried to start the dishwasher and it wouldn't work. He said that he'd have to call in about this and see if someone could come out to fix it. Plus, we were waiting for another employee to come to give me a copy of the contract and for me to pay. In the meantime, he starts putting his supplies away and asks me where the drawers are. I hand them to him to put back in. He starts jamming them in very roughly. I almost told him to that I'd just do it but I didn't want to be rude. The entire time I am mortified because he is just banging my drawers up to make them fit. Now I am angry because he tells me that this one drawer doesn't work. I said I have had no problems with this drawer at all. He finally gets it back in after he rips off a piece of my cabinet. He throws the piece onto my counter and tells me to glue it back on. He then has the audacity after that to not only comment on the paint job of my cabinets stating "it's pretty good" but then asks me for a cell phone charger. During this entire time, he has his cell phone and charger plugged into my kitchen outlet and took a personal call as well. He did not seem like he wanted to work or finish the job. By shoving my drawers back in, he showed how unprofessional he was and lack of respect for my home. The Clover counter top employees were the exact opposite. They treated my home with respect and were super careful not to damage anything: the floor, new counter, etc. This kid could care less. Finally, after he receives some phone calls from his boss and instructions on how to fix the dishwasher, he finally fixes it and finishes the job. He did imply that perhaps our dishwasher was broken all along and that they did not touch it. I understand that they didn't touch the electrical component to the dishwasher, but they did work on it. They did touch it by moving drain tubes. Come to find out it was probably the Express employees who ripped out the counters accidentally loosened the dishwasher wires. Overall, the experience was bad but the counter tops and sink look beautiful. I would not hire this company again, but would hire Clover Counters in the future.

Angie’s List,
I was in the process of looking for a contractor without Angie’s List. I made appointments with half a dozen potential contractors during this process of elimination and became very agitated with all of the run-around. One contractor wanted 20K when most quoted $4500. I believe he felt the job was too small and did not want to do it. Why not just be professional and say he can’t do it. Another was pushing a plastic shower liner (whose bathroom is this really?!!). Another contractor was OK but did not listen to me when I told him I would do all of the demo and disposal of garbage. When I received his quote, he included charges for demo and disposal. Another wanted to charge me $2000 for plumbing alone and looked puzzled at how to get my P-trap fixed when I knew what had to be done, a regular

not in the plumbing trade. Some cried because I wanted a cast iron tub. OK, I know it’s 300lb but really?! So disappointed with all of the contractors, I vented with a good friend about all of the challenges I was facing since she was in the process of getting a kitchen remodel done and could relate to all of the headaches. Afterwards I decided to look into Angie’s list and made appointments with six more contractors. Boy, what a difference! You could see all the ratings and comments from people about their experiences with different contractors. This is when I found

No issues with the P-trap plumbing, no issues with the cast iron tub (only a joke about eating his wheaties J) and the price was fair. He and his team were on time from start to finish.
