worked from about 11 am to 5-6 pm daily. He always returned my calls and the project came in on budget. He did the sheet rocking, taping shackling and sanding, installed the venting and electrical outlet for the dryer, a light and light switch. He brought in a plumber for the washer hookup. He installed bi-fold doors on both closets and all the trim around the door and baseboard. He did a great job, I love his attention to detail. He listened to my idea and made excellent suggestions for improving on it. He did such a good job I am going to have him come back for a bathroom remodel!

The repairs went very well.
is quiet, doesn't smoke and doesn't yell, swear or complain. His pace seemed slow at first, but then I realized he's methodical, not slow-working.
didn't charge me by the hour, but for a day's work. So even if he had been slow, it wouldn't have mattered. Two things didn't get finished because of snags--not
's fault--so he returned two days later to finish. I'm very happy with
's work, and am happy to have found someone who is also pleasant to work with. Everything works properly and is finished neatly. I would hire him again and have recommended him to friends.

It took 2 phone calls to generate a response, no big deal, but slightly delayed. Provider came and was very professional and timely for the run through, gathering all the info they needed to give an estimate. It was a week or so before hearing back from them, I felt they did a very thourough job in gathering the info they needed and that I certainly got the feeling from their website and meeting them in person that they provide a quality service, how ever, their quote was $17,500. Extremely high in my mind for the job. I got the feeling they did not want to do the job, so they submitted a very high estimate. If that were the case, I would have preferred them to just deny the job rather than submitt such a high estimate at my expense. I have since contracted a different provider who has a reputation for quality work and they are doing the job for under $10,000. The job is almost complete and they have been excellent.

After our initial meeting reviewing what we wanted done, we exchanged numerous emails nailing down the final details.

always responded promptly and answered all our questions.

and his employee

showed up at 7:30am on June 3rd as promised and worked thru the day removing the existing newel posts, railings and balusters, replacing them with finished oak posts, rails and metal balusters that we had picked out.
They completed the project at 8:30pm with everything done except some touchup staining that was needed after they connected the rails to the posts. We had no problem doing the touchup work ourselves. The stain

suggested was a perfect match highlighting the oak grain.
They did what we consider an outstanding job; on time and at the price we agreed to.
More importantly, we did not realize until
Ballston Spa Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
finished our project just how shoddy a job the original contractor had done when we built our house.

and his crew are true craftsmen doing what we consider extremely precise work.
We could not find any "goofs" or mis-alignments anywhere. As best we can tell, their work was perfect.
We also were very glad to follow his suggestions regarding the placement of the newel posts and using metal balusters instead of wooden ones.

This was not the 1st time we had used

Stumpfel, the owner of
Ballston Spa Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
. He did the majority of the work on our kitchen reconstruction and did such a fabulous job, we immediately called him when our ceiling needed repair.

is a perfectionist. If he doesn't like the way something looks, he loses sleep before he can fix it to his (and our) satisfaction. He, unlike many contractors, returned calls, was always on time, and when he left for the day, there wasn't a drop of trash to be found. He completed the porch ceiling in a timely manner and the cost was very reasonable for the amount of time it took him. We would not hesitate to use

again and would recommend him enthusiastically.

I first contacted this contractor after seeing his sign on a neighbor's lawn. I had been looking to have my kitchen redone, and had contacted other contractors in the past. Knowing this neighbor is particular about their home, I opted to get an estimate. I first met with the contractor's wife at a home show. I also met with the contractor's assistant there. I spent a great deal of time asking questions and explaining that I was very particular. I also asked what kind of mess I might expect, and I was told that a plastic curtain could be put up to prevent dust from moving through the house. After meeting the two of them at the show, the contractor came over to take some measurements. I met with his wife at their studio once. After that time, I never met with her again, but dealt with the contractor via email. I was very anxious to get the work underway, because I didn't want it to drag out a long time. It helped that I knew exactly what I wanted, but I would have liked to meet with the designer (wife) more than one time to talk about cabinet height over the
Ballston Spa Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
, the types of hinges on cabinet doors, etc. The only option I was presented with was a quick visit to the showroom with the contractor to double check a couple of things and to sign a contract (that didn't even have the exact cabinet price on it). I knew the ballpark amount and didn't want to prolong the project, so I signed it.
I was told that the cabinets were ordered approximately a week or 2 later and that it would take approximately 6 weeks for the order to arrive. Additional time was added for the Christmas Holiday. Work finally began on February 11. The job took approximately 1 week to complete with the exception of installing the backsplash. I had a 2 week wait for my countertop to be fabricated. I had my heart set on a quartz countertop, but my contractor did not have a provider for this. I had to co-ordinate this with a store in the area who had a fabricator in Syracuse. The turnaround time for the countertop was 2 weeks to the day. The following week, I had my contractor back to hook up my plumbing and install the backsplash. He also had to finish installing a "filler" next to the cabinet above the refrigerator. The contractor had run out of the "filler" pieces and had to order more; so the contractor's assistant pieced together a skin of the same wood and some boards, thinking I wouldn't notice. Otherwise, why would he go through the trouble of piecing it all together when it had to be replaced?
When the microwave was installed, it turned out to be so high, I had to stand on my toes to see the inside of it. After it was installed, he asked me if the height was OK. I said, "it's too late now". Then I was told that a filler piece could be installed below the cabinets. That was done; but, I could have had a bigger cabinet above the
Ballston Spa Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
and still would have had plenty of room for the microwave. In taking it down and putting it back up, a clip broke off the top of the microwave where the bolt had to go through. They proceeded to take the microwave apart to find the clip, only to find it was broken. They then used tape in the place of the clip to install the microwave. I was assured it would hold. This was a brand new one right out of the box. Had I been able to meet with the designer, this could have all been avoided.
When the contractor first came to my home to measure, I told him I had gotten a new floor installed the prior year and that I was concerned about protecting it. I asked if canvas or special paper could be put down to prevent gouging, and he indicated he would use cardboard. I had some problems with the install of the floor which I discussed with him, but I was still concerned about protecting it. Nothing was ever put down to protect the floor, and several tiles (not including the ones that had to be replaced due to improper installation) had to be replaced due to the contractor dragging or dropping something on the floor. My flooring contractor came back to replace them with the exception of one which I discovered after the "filler" had been replaced over the fridge. The only time the floor was covered was when the countertop people came in. I mentioned my concerns to the assistant, but he apparently did not share this information. The contractor indicated, in his last correspondence to me, that I never mentioned covering the floor. My response was that I shouldn't have to ask. This should be something that a contractor would do as a normal practice.
There were also areas of the backsplash were grout did not reach. He told me it was grouted 3 times, and that it was hard to fill in 1/8th inch spaces which he didn't feel was correct for the tile. I purchased the tile at a specialty tile store, and the recommended spacing was 1/8th inch.
I am glad the job is done. I hope the microwave does not come off the cabinet; I was assured it would not. When I asked a question or had a concern, the contractor seemed put out by it and a bit irritated that I would question him. I felt a bit intimidated as a result. I feel that as a paying consumer, it is my right to ask questions and to keep apprised of what is going on in my home.

The contractor started the work sooner than we expected, so we naively thought that it would be completed sooner. Work on this multi-project job started in June and was not completed until October. This contractor likes to get jobs, but then has so many in the
Ballston Spa Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
at one time that they cannot be worked on in a timely manner. Nothing was ever finished completely before starting a new project. So for an entire summer and into the fall our house was in various stages of construction.
More aggravating was this contractor's lack of professionalism in returning phone calls, not showing up when promised, and lack of information regarding pricing for materials. We were sent to the big box stores to "pick out" our sinks, toilets, etc required for the work. We were never given a price range for these items - for example, it would have been helpful to know that we had a $150 limit for a toilet, a $200 limit for a vanity, etc. So the items that we did special order (and paid for) should have been comp'd at a reasonable amount. Further, one of the projects was a window replacement. This contractor lied to us about the order status of a window (the company was said to have broken it without re-ordering a replacement), then they claimed to have contacted a company that originated our windows (they were not contacted). They accidentally broke our new bathroom vent fan/light in the demo of the bathroom and instead of owning up to the mistake, they said that the wiring was bad so it had to come out. The stain & polyurethane was never completed so we had to have our painter do it for us.
These and so many other things were our experience. While it is nice to have the work finished and a nicer surrounding, there are so many mistakes and so much was left undone, that it has soured us to ever going down this road again.
