Remodeling reviews in West Springfield


Although in the past his work has been excellent, he really fell down on the job this time. He was unable to complete the job due to transportation issues and did not keep me informed. He could not be here to supervise his employees, and never came back to do the "finish" work to disguise their incompetence. Ultimately I fired him. Paid half in advance, and I am sorry I did. Drop cloths were not used. Doorways did not have plastic hung in them to avoid spreading dust. While this company may be good working with nice straight new walls, they did not seem to know how to handle the off square problems in an older house. Having these mistakes repaired are a headache.

Construction, did not follow through as expected. I am deeply disappointed.

This tiny bathroom, in a 1900's home, had last been remodeled in 1964. For many years it had offered only a toilet and bath; no sink or shower. There was only sub flooring and old dry wall. The space was awkward to work in and has more than one odd little "

took our pieces and worked his magic. Just plain tile (all I could afford) was set on-point in different spaces, which completely changed the look of the walls. The floor tiles were then also set on-point, continuing the motif and giving the room a very special look. This couple was always on time, and some days worked "over" the normal workday to complete a part of the project rather than leave it half done. With one bathroom in the house, we appreciated this! In addition they are professional, personable, helpful and a pleasure to have in the house.

Over nearly 3 weeks he only worked a total of 20 hours, leaving early for doctor's appointments or not showing up at all. The first day he was there, he ripped out my tub surround, threw away the faucet handles, left the bathtub chipped and full of plaster, then said he wouldn't be back for 3 days. It was at this time he told us that he also did not have a plumber or electrician lined up and he never ordered our window. This is our only bathtub, so I had to spend time cleaning it out and using a wrench to turn the faucets on for a bath. Things only went downhill from there. He framed around the tub using found wood and existing rotten boards. He nailed a few scrap pieces of plywood down to tile over. It just got worse. After a 2+ weeks, we fired him due to fear of further damage to our house. We are currently in litigation to get part of our deposit refunded.

Gave verbal estimate for labor and materials, performed half services and then changed pricing to $400/day rather than the $40/hour for labor that was agreed upon (when sending invoice prior to completed work.) The invoice was a mess and included things that we had written agreements on which were not the agreed amounts on the invoice (granite cuts, the sink, gas and "taxes". Invoice charged $300 in "taxes" which as a tax preparer I knew wasn't right. There was much confusion and I decided to have someone else finish the work, I paid him for his hourly services and will hire someone else to finish now that the granite company installed the granite I only need a little molding and he was charging me $200 in labor plus parts, no thank you- it will take 20 minutes.

Will write an overall evaluation of work performed when the job is complete

The overall installation despite the additional cost went extremely well. I cannot complain about the extra "

Bottom line is I would gladly recommend Home & Hearth and will use them again in the spring (2013) for a deck overhaul I am planning.

Good work, very professional and reasonable cost.

I found Illia here on Angie's List and went in a little blind because I desperately needed a plumber to help me progress my master bathroom renovation. He came by for the free estimate, seemed reasonable, offered a decent price, and so I hired him.
In essence, the bathroom renovation involves moving the shower valves to another wall, relocating the shower drain, and installing all the new fixtures.
For the rough in, he got the work done well and quickly. However, this is what earned him the 'B' on price. He was so efficient that I left myself wondering if I was overcharged for this task. I dismissed the fear, however, since it would have taken me about 4 days to do what he did in only a couple hours. As a side note, the finish plumbing for this project is not yet done not because I haven't installed the tile yet.
In the meantime, the sink in my downstairs bathroom experienced catastrophic failure. I removed it and called him to schedule a repair. Unfortunately, he was booking about a week out but when he came, it was fixed for about half the price I thought it would cost, so that makes up for my feeling like I may have overpaid on the upstairs bathroom.
For both projects and for the initial estimate, he was here about 5-10 minutes after the agreed upon time. Not EXACTLY on time, but well within a window of reason and still deserving of an 'A' for punctuality.
Overall, I have hired 4 plumbers in the past 5 years for different projects in my house. Illia is the one I have been most satisfied with. I plan to bring him back to finish the master bath project and for any other future needs. I highly recommend hiring him.
