Went very well. The crew

and

were great. Punctual. They were at the house by or before 7 everyday. Had the whole project done in 4 1/2 days.
The bathroom had no electrical outlets. Ceiling and walls needed to be dry-walled. Put in all new fixtures (sink, toilet, shower - went from a 32 inch to 36 inch with shower door). Re-tiled the floor and put in a new sub floor.
Now I finally have a bathroom I can actually use and want to use. Thank you

and your crew.

(the owner) and her crew are THE BEST! Before meeting and
working with
Springfield Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
, I didn't know a building contractor could be
responsive, friendly, helpful (lots of great suggestions), competent
(both business dealings and actual construction), reasonably priced, and
professional. We had a screened-in porch turned into a "3-season room"
(although the job is so tight and so well insulated it may actually be a
4-season room). Very responsive on initial inquiry. After first
look-over, came back very quickly with detailed bid. Sat with us to
review the bid. When time to do the work, the crew showed up on a Monday
and had the job completed by Wednesday (tear down, framing, new
windows, under-floor insulation, new door, siding, between studs
insulation, and B-board walls). Actually did tear down, framing, new
windows, Tyvek and plywood all in one day. Maybe a number of great
suggestions as the job progressed (we agreed to most of them) and came
back within 1/2 day with new estimates on the suggestions. What more
could we ask for.

InStar rushed the job. The company did the work very fast.
I'm not sure how the waterproofing went, but I had water in the basement just a few weeks after the remodel.
That's when I started to look at the details of the job, which was done in my absence.

The major problem: InStar put vinyl laminate floor directly on concrete in a damp basement. There was no vapor
Springfield Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
or subfloor. So water seeped under the laminate and stayed there. The laminate floor curled and was permanently ruined. I pulled it up myself. I ran a fan in the basement, and within an hour the floor was dry from the slimy water the laminate had been holding. Then I had to dispose of the ruined (yet new) laminate flooring myself.
Also, the edges of some drywall by one of the doors was left open, with exposed crumbling white drywall. There was no vapor
Springfield Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
installed behind the drywall either.
There were three valves in the ceiling for turning on various outside spigots. The company almost completely enclosed two and left one less than half exposed. So I cannot turn on the outside water or have any access for plumbers or checking for leaks. I tried turning one valve using a hammer and screwdriver, but it caused damage to the ceiling.

Lastly, when I called InStar to talk to the project manager, he didn't return my three phone messages.
I researched the company further, and it is a national chain with very mixed reviews.

This company is a dream to do business with. Whenever I have had them do anything, it has been done with perfection. And, they are nice people. My neighbor had them also do a kitchen and bath, and she too thinks highly of them.

Workers arrived on time. Work was done to our satisfaction. The floors look great, including the stairs which had previously been painted. Our original wood bannister featured spindles that were too far apart for a house with young children. We explored our options with Bill, and decided on a decorative cast iron insert between the original wood spindles. I commend Bill for bringing us such a creative option. (It would have been just as easy to plug in some newer wood spindles that didn't match.) The finished product looks great, and they provide the safety and stability we were looking for. I will contact

with confidence to bid on future projects.

was easy to reach and easy to talk to. Being indecisive by nature, I wasn't sure exactly what I wanted. He spoke with me about different cost options for renovating the bathroom and was willing to work within my budget. I obtained 5 estimates, all from Angies List. What I most liked about
Springfield Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
was him not pushing me to have the Bathfitter unit removed. He could tell I wasn't sure about what to do and talked it out with me until we came to an agreement, not pushing me either way.

was prompt, punctual, ready to work and easy to talk to. I communicated via email with him because that was easiest for me. He would respond to my emails within 24hrs.
The morning of the appointed start of project,

were punctual and organized. I felt like part of the team as the 4 of us went through the items on the contract which were easy to read and laid out in single line fashion. The 4 of us went over each line, giving all of us an opportunity to ask questions before the work began. I have had alot of work done on my house, and this is the first time I have seen this done: a great way to save time, money and avoid confusion. Next,

prepared my house, laying down drop cloths everywhere and making sure items were removed so they wouldn't be damaged. I have four teenagers, which make six of us in the house which the workers had to get around.

&

were polite, professional, neat and quiet. Every day debris was removed, the stairs swept and drop cloths picked up.

even did touch up paint on the stair banister where it was scratched. Last but not least they made sure my driveway wasn't damaged during the renovation.

was visible during the project and easy to reach, dropping off supplies intermittently. Everyone treated my house & family with respect and courtesy. My daughter said I was finding more work for them to do so they wouldn't leave!!!!! A truly nice, talented group of people. All through the project

showed up promptly every day @ 7 and worked throughout the day with a short lunch break. They left @ 3 every day which made it convenient for me to have everyone out of the house before they came and home after they left. Really convenient hours if you have a family.
I can't say enough about the finished product. Absolutely gorgeous and I know it was done right.

took pains with everything they did and consulted me when they needed to. I found a crack in the cabinet over the toilet which

fixed for me the very next day, came right over after one phone call. My neighbor two doors down is very interested in using

My home was damaged in the June 2011 tornado. Sabbie and the entire SNS crew did a wonderful job. They are honest, punctual, hard working, and I couldn't be happier with the results. I HIGHLY recommend this company.

This was a major second floor renovation. There were snags because it is an old house, and the crew needed to think on their feet. In every instance, they exceeded our expectations for service, thoughtfulness, kindness, and expertise. We are looking forward to having them return to do another renovation project later this year. Based on our very positive experience, we are looking forward to having them renovate our kitchen.

Belacastro provided outstanding assistance and oversight throughout the entire project. He kept us up to date, supervised his crew, maintained a sense of efficiency and good humor that made the entire project a pleasure.
Springfield Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
deals well with both the pre-planning and the day-to-day details of executing the renovation. In addition, he dealt with some last minute changes we made in an unflappable manner and throughout demonstrated real leadership ability in dealing with the day-to-day realities of a major renovation. The men who worked on our crew were wonderful.
