Over a period of several weeks, I attempted to arrange a consultation appointment about installing a floor in my basement, contacting
Haverhill Basement Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
multiple times via phone and text. He proposed a number of different times when he could come, but then he never came.

is dedicated to his work and is extremely professional. No issues at all. Very happy with the 3 new doors. Would definitely recommend and would use again in the future. His price was competitive with other quotes we received.

and his crew began the job on time. They worked every day until the job was done. He had suggestions which we took to improve the outcome of the job. He and his crew are very friendly and easy to work with. We actually had a good time if that can be possible without a kitchen. He is the first contractor that I have ever used that I trust to call back for further work. I recommend him extremely highly. Incidently, he was not the cheapest bid that I received on the job but his comment "I have been doing this work for a while and I know what it will take to do the job properly and what it will cost." He was right. The only changes in the price was what I decided to have him do in addition to the original bid. Something that I really liked about his work is that if there is electrical work to be done, he calls in a licensed electrician, he won't risk your health and safety by trying to cut corners.
He is a quality carpenter and I recommend him without reservation.

We had a great experience with
Haverhill Basement Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
in building a bedroom, closet, 1/2 bath and storage room in basement. We had a very specific timeline to work with, and
Haverhill Basement Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
bent over backwards to accommodate these deadlines. The bathroom took creativity to work around the various pipes and
Haverhill Basement Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
, etc. but
Haverhill Basement Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
took it all in stride. He was easy going and easy to work with. As one friend observed, "It's too good of a tape job; I can't find any studs".

is willing to take on both small and large jobs. Recommended.

When we contacted
Haverhill Basement Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
of
Haverhill Basement Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
to discuss installing a backyard patio, he was very proactive in making a plan and giving us an estimate on our project. We decided to proceed with a two-tiered concrete patio with acid-stain finish. The surface texture was to have large circular fan brush strokes.
We researched online and provided
Haverhill Basement Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
with a picture of a patio color that we liked. We were put in contact with the company that he subcontracted the job to. We thought this was strange and ended up meeting with the subcontractor with and without the presence of
Haverhill Basement Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
as we prepared to get the job underway.
The concrete was poured in May 2012. We had to wait for a month for the concrete to cure before the stain was applied. We were happy with the result and paid our balance in full. Fast forward to January 2013. After a big snow, I looked out the window to the patio so see that the "stain" had chipped off in large chunks all over the entirety of the patio's surface. I took photos and sent
Haverhill Basement Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
a text message with images attached. He was shocked that this happened and said as soon as the weather premitted he would send out his subcontractor to fix the issue. I contacted
Haverhill Basement Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
many times throughout the spring and was put off multiple times. I was then, again, redirected to communicate with his subcontractor. The subcontractor told me that he informed
Haverhill Basement Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
that the finish we requested was not a good choice for the weather conditions in Indiana.
Haverhill Basement Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
failed to mention this to us. After reviewing the contract that we had with
Haverhill Basement Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
, and then the subcontractor providing the contract that he had with
Haverhill Basement Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
, we realized that
Haverhill Basement Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
had different surface finishes in each contract. What he discussed and agreed to with us was different than what he agreed to with the subcontractor. The subcontractor came out and did a quick fix of spraying some stain over the chipped areas to try to improve the appearance for a birthday party we had scheduled.
I ended up in a situation of hearing from
Haverhill Basement Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
that the subcontractor was lying and didn't preform satisfactory work. Meanwhile, since I was constantly having to communicate directly with the subcontractor he was informing me that
Haverhill Basement Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
failed on his part to properly understand the project and accurately relay critical information to us in an attempt to keep us happy. Eventually the subcontractor wanted to wash his hands of the situation and cut us a check for what it would cost to refinish the patio surface.
Haverhill Basement Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
then hired another subcontractor to come to refinish the patio surface. We then gave him the sum of money that we were given by the original subcontractor to give to new subcontractor to refinish surface.
Haverhill Basement Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
put us off all summer, promising us dates that th job would be completed and then making excused for not following through. His subcontractor, who, once again we had to meet with, came to do job in NOVEMBER 2013. This included sanding off the circular fan brush stroke surface texture that was included in our contract. A new stain was applied and sealed. We were relatively satisfied with the job considering we were giving up the texture we wanted and how long this fiasco had been drawn out. Fast-forward to December 2013 (one month later). The stain is peeling off again. We send
Haverhill Basement Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
images. He comes to look at it. Says we will fix it in the spring. I never hear from him. I have to contact him multiples times. Finally he sends the subcontractor out to reseal the patio. He did not restain as was discussed and required to fix the problem. He slopped on 2 coats of sealer back to back. When I arrived home the patio was covered in bubbles. Large bubbles created from the sealer he put on. The following day(that I was told we could walk of it) I went to patio and Large bubbles had dried in place all over the patio surface. The sealer crunched under my feet. It crumbled and started peeling immediately! I text
Haverhill Basement Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
with photos. He says he's going to send his subcontractor over to look at it and fix it. He just sloppily applied another coat of sealer over chipping sealer that was applied over chipping stain.
The patio now looks worse than ever.
Haverhill Basement Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
now refuses to answer or return our calls or respond to our text messages. This has been going on for 2 1/2 years! I am livid with the way he has handled all of this. It has caused much upset and stress and we have moved our pation furniture on and off the patio on too many occasions to count. THe only way to fix the stain and sealer issue is to further sand the surface of the patio and start over. We have told
Haverhill Basement Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
we are no longer interested in his "fixing" our patio. We would like a refund of the money paid for a job that was never completed. At this point we are so frustrated with the situation and his complete lack of professionalism that I want nothing to do with him coming again to my property. I want my money back. I want to hire a real professional who knows his own trade to complete a job that is promised. I don't want to be in contact with his subcontractors. I did not hire them! I hired

of

to do this job. HUGE mistake that I regret everyday that I go outside and look at that patio.

Here's the deal with
Haverhill Basement Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
and his company. They provide B/C level work at an A price. If you are a perfectionist (i.e. want all you doors to close correctly and think they should do a semi-decent paint job) then this is not your company. If you just need something cheap, quick and you won't look too closely at the craftsmanship, then this is absolutely the place!
Haverhill Basement Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
is nice. He is a salesman. He will promise you the moon. And then only shows up when he wants to collect money. I did not like the fact that he showed up to collect a significant progress payment on day 2 of a two week job. And was chomping at the bit/pressuring to get the final check even as his guys were working still in
Haverhill Basement Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
. We had done a walk-through and put tape on items to be fixed. They pretty much just walked through and took off the tape markers and told us that "when the paint dried" the spots would be better. They also ran out of paint (after
Haverhill Basement Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
had collected his check but had PROMISED they would finish) so they left promising to come back. After several phone calls through the next month, we finally got someone to come back. He only brought one color with him and couldn't even finish all the painting because he hadn't brought enough.
We had some ups and
Haverhill Basement Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
with
Haverhill Basement Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
and we finally walked away tired of fighting to get them to come finish. Someone in an earlier review mentioned holding money in an account to be given 2 weeks after completion. I think that's a great idea. Let all the paint dry before handing over that final check!

was very responsive and came right away to help solve some basement water issues. His crew started work right away and did an excellent job. They did an extensive amount of concrete work for a VERY good price.
Haverhill Basement Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
even offered a discount if we could begin work right away.
The quality of the work was very good. The flooring was installed very nicely with no seams or awkward transitions. The concrete was also done very well. All of the workers were prompt, worked hard, and kept the jobsite clean.

The work went very well. Guy was responsive to the initial request to come out and provide an estimate. He arranged a time, was on time for the appointment, and provided his proposal in the time promised. He made suggestions about the design of the project, including helping us to create a larger room than we had planned originally, so that we could fit in a pool table. He also took plenty of time to explain his suggestions for the design and the materials and to answer our questions. His proposal was not the least expensive we received, but was within a range that we felt was reasonable based on estimates from other providers. In the end, we chose him because we felt that he was someone we could work with.
He explained when he would be able to start the job based on his other ongoing projects, and stated clearly exactly what we needed to do to be ready, and by when. He kept us posted throughout the process, and completed the job in a reasonable amount of time. The workmen were pleasant and kept the mess to a minimum.
We wanted to do our own painting, which is unusual, but he worked with us so that we could do that and save a little money.
One of the windows that was installed was defective, and he took care of ordering and installing the replacement.
He was always responsive to any questions in person or over the phone, and would get back to us quickly if we had to leave a message.
Overall it was a pleasant experience, and the work was very well done. We are happy with our finished room.

1Matt and his coworker were professional, respectful and hardworking. They checked and rechecked all doors for proper installation and had us check everything along with them and explained what they were doing and why. ANY QUESTIONS were answered and they cleaned up after they were through sweeping and vacuuming. Very pleasant workers and we are having them back in SEPTEMBER to create a playroom/family room and bathroom in our basement.
