"I would rate my experience with
Ellicott City Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
as the most positive I've ever had getting home repairs/maintenance done. I was very pleased with both the process and the results.

, and
Ellicott City Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
were all very easy and pleasant to work with and even more importantly they did good work. And,

did a great job of cleaning up each day before leaving.

On 11/13/2013
Ellicott City Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
came to my house to review the work I needed done so that he could give me an estimate. Because of the number of small jobs involved, we agreed on using an hourly rate and on 11/17/2013
Ellicott City Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
sent me an estimate of hours. We then agreed that the work would start the first week in December. The work was originally scheduled for Fri, Sat, and Mon (12/6/2013, 12/07/2013, 12/09/2013).
Ellicott City Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
and
Ellicott City Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
came on Fri and Sat and accomplished some of the outdoor jobs and all of the indoor jobs, except the bathroom floors. They were not able to work on Mon as planned because firstly I had ordered the bathroom tiles over the internet and they did not arrive in time and secondly, the weather did not cooperate for doing the porch screening. Bathroom tile was done on 12/12 and 12/13 and porch screening on 12/19. I was pleased that all the work got done in the time frame that it did, given the issue with the tile delivery and the fact that it was not a great time of year to get outdoor work done. I would definitely recommend
Ellicott City Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
and I would not hesitate to call on them again.

"The job took two weeks, but I was really impressed with the quality of work. Along the way,
Ellicott City Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
pointed out some things he suggested be fixed. Among them was enclosing a wall to make it meet code, removing old hot and cold water pipes that were no longer used, and replacing shutoff valves in the powder room. While I did have to pay extra to have this work done, the additional costs were very reasonable and were an indication that this provider does not attempt to gouge the homework once they start a job.

"ACH Group justcompleted finishing our basement. The size of our basement was substantial (approximately 1250 s q ft), and included a kitchenette in addition to full bath, so this was a fairly large project. Now that the finishing is complete, and we
can look at the results, we can only say, “Wow!”
The crew started the project on time, and worked quickly to place the frame and rough-ins. Unless they were using their tools, they were so quiet we could scarcely tell they were there. They cleaned up thoroughly after each work day, so there was little dust or disturbance to the rest of thehouse. The electrical, painting, drywall, and carpet crews were extremely well coordinated; as a result there was very little delay during the course of the project. In fact they finished earlier than projected. Each crew member also courteously informed us when they would be working, and accommodated our requests with specially ordered items.
The finished project is more fabulous than we could have anticipated! The kitchenette is attractive and modern, the painting reflects great attention to detail, and the molding and finishes gorgeously installed. To
Ellicott City Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
and his crew, thank you for a job well done!

"All I can say is, buyer beware. Be very aware. And be ready to call an attorney.
This guy lied to me from the very beginning, and all through the entire contract, until the bitter end. He will B.S. you until the cows come home, and as I learned, he really doesn't know much about home construction.
I had a fairly large project of an addition along with a deck and screen porch. I requested bids from 3 different companies and Clockwork came in at the lowest price. One of my requirements was that I wanted 90% of the job done by employees of the company that I hired. He told me that he had 22 employees and assured me that they would do the majority of the work. I found out later that he immediately bid out the entire job to several subcontractors. There were 2 employees who showed up part time to do bits of the work, but the rest was done by subs. The majority of the work was done by 2 subcontractors working together, the guys that "won the bid".
During the job, Clockwork had the subcontractors perform much of the work out of sequence just so that he could bill for milestones sooner. Because of this, we had rain coming into our bedroom and dining room in April. The subs removed part of the the roof but were told not to replace it until they replaced some windows and doors.
He had been billing me far ahead of the work that was completed, and at first I trusted him. However, after the incident with the rain in the dining room, I told him that I was slowing down on payments until the work caught up. His reaction, without even a phone call back to me, was to pull the the subs off of the job. That was his attempt to intimidate me. I then called a lawyer who informed me that Clockwork was in material breech of contract for performing the tasks out of sequence and for walking off of the job. I informed Clockwork that if he didn't clean up his act, I would be making calls to MHIC and the MD Dept of Labor, which then made Clockwork realize that I was serious. We renegotiated the contract, removing parts of it and changing the payment schedule. At that point, I watched him every single step of the way. And I paid him on my schedule when the work was completed correctly.
Luckily I had built a good relationship with the subs by then and with constant supervision on my part, I was able to get most of the job done eventually (4 months after the original finish date in the 3 month contract).
With about 3 weeks left to finishing up, Clockwork decided to stop paying for the port-o-potty. The laborers that he hired from Home Depot parking lot to grade the dirt and
Ellicott City Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
the sod had to urinate in my bushes. They did such a poor job that I forced Clockwork to get someone else to re-
Ellicott City Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
the sod and re-grade. He hired some beggar guy on the side of Route 40, who lasted about 1/2 a day. Finally, he found somebody that had some pride in his work.
Finally, I basically fired Clockwork before the job was completed and had them give me a credit so that I could finish the job myself. I hired the 2 subcontractors who did the majority of the work and we had a good working relationship. I can give you their names because I can recommend them. They have pride in their work.
But not Clockwork. Clockwork is a slimeball contractor. He's exactly the kind of person you don't want to do business with. I could go on and on, but I think you get the picture.

"The spring of 2013, Mr.
Ellicott City Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
had done some excellent, creative work with doing repairs on the front porch of our house within the historic district. He had to be creative because of all the constraints that are put on home owners in our area. After deciding we wanted to update and enlarge the kitchen of our home, and build a back porch,
Ellicott City Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
was one of several contractors that I contacted. I will say, he was the only one who really listened to me, and also could appreciate that I didn't want a "cookie cutter" approach that includes whatever is fashionable in kitchens this year. He understands that a careful integration of styles is very important to the look of this house. Also, he was very quick with responding with a quote. If he can work us in, we'll use him. He really listens.

"My husband and I recently purchased our home in
Ellicott City Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
and wanted to finish the basement ASAP. We contacted 3 top rated contractors on Angie's list . ACH group was the only contractor that scheduled an appointment immediately and arrived on time.
Ellicott City Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
from ACH group was very organized and presented us with a standard brochure from ACH group that broke down he pricing.They gave us the cheapest estimate. And they also immediately acknowledged the Angie's promotion of 10% off. They took care of the permit in a timely manner. After we signed the contract, work was started on time. All the workers were polite and on time . They kept us in the loop of what they were doing or going to do. They kept everything clean and tidy everyday. When my master bedroom closet collapsed,
Ellicott City Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
offered to fix the closet for free. They were attentive to all our needs. They finished 2 weeks earlier than projected.
Few days after the project was done we had few questions about connecting the theater system and we called
Ellicott City Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
. He stopped by later that day and assisted with connecting the theater system for free.
My recommendation would be to choose ACH group for your renovation projects because you'll be getting the best bang for your buck.

"I hired
Ellicott City Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
of
Ellicott City Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
to build the main deck off the back of my house earlier this year. He was extremely thorough and patient during the preliminary design and material selection phase of the job and answered all the questions I had about the construction and deciding what type of deck to build. This was important to me since there are now so many material choices, both natural wood or composite, not to mention the many architectural configurations available. The pros and cons of the different alternatives were thoroughly discussed and samples of practically every choice on the
Ellicott City Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
were made available.

handled all interfacing with the county for permits and inspections such that I didn't have to concern myself with that aspect of the project whatsoever. Before I made the final decision to go with
Ellicott City Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
provided a professional estimate of cost and schedule.
Once construction began
Ellicott City Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
and his employees were never less than cordial and helpful. The work was completed in an efficient and expedient manner without interruption of my daily schedule. At one point I changed a major aspect of the design during the construction having to do with the configuration of the stairs.
Ellicott City Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
was fully accommodating, even dismantling some of the original configuration to allow for the change I wanted.
The deck was completed within the timeframe originally scheduled and there were no surprises in terms of price. The construction and design have proven robust and I am completely satisfied with the way things turned out. My overall experience was quite positive and I would recommend
Ellicott City Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
without reservation.

"AES worked with me initially to try to keep the total cost down. I was able to find exactly the fixtures I wanted and to shop for quality and price. They worked with me so that some items could be shipped directly to my home but due to some space constraints we arranged to have some larger items (e.g., hall bathtub, master bath shower door, etc.) shipped to AES directly, and they brought them out as they were needed for the job. The entire project was collaborative and customer-centric.
Once work began the project went beautifully. It started right on time and all work was completed in four weeks, which was two weeks earlier than the time estimate of 6 weeks I was given initially. These men worked hard and efficiently, no fooling around ever. I think they work too hard, to tell the truth!
I was able to follow their progress and see how the bathrooms (including walls) were both completely removed, then ultimately replaced. The crew were more than construction workers; they were craftsmen that did beautiful, careful work and took pride in it. They consulted me regularly to make sure everything was as I wanted it to be, paying attention to the smallest details,even on things such as the angle of the safety bars near the end of the job. They worked in this manner for the dressing area as well.
They were clean and careful to use dropcloths to protect my floors and rugs, and cleaned up when they were finished each day. There is inevitably some dust, and I protected some other areas myself (for example, book cases, so I wouldn't have to dust each book at the end of the job). But they cleaned up their work both inside my home and outside where they cut tile, flooring, etc. They were careful and considerate of my neighbors as well (I live in a condominium so neighbors are close by) and were as careful as possible not to disturb them in any way.
And as I said, they are more craftsmen than construction workers. They care about details of their work and want it to be as perfect as I did. On top of that, they are friendly and nice. I feel like no matter how nice the salesperson is (and he is!), it is the crew who are in the home every day--they are like ambassadors for the company to the homeowner. These men are wonderful, and their work is truly beautiful. I highly recommend AES for any home improvement job you may have. (I first met AES in 2002 for a different job estimate when I was in a different home. I didn't choose them at that time and regretted it then, and was determined not to make the same mistake every again. I still did a lot of research on contractors, interviewed other contractors for this job and seriously considered all of them, but ultimately it was clear that AES was the best. It was absolutely the right choice and I am glad I chose them.
