The technicians do very high quality work, especially the electrical and carpentry work, and are professional and reliable. I don't think there is anything they can't fix! My only objection is the price. They are very expensive, more than other contractors.

Failed to finish the job, hundreds of phone calls and emails attempting to obtain additional money for work not completed; claimed not to know what a punch list was and did not complete punch list; missed contractual completion date by a year; didn't connect whole house water filtration; didn't put in an access panel to
heated tub; sloppy or inadequate caulking of windows; installation of custom doors and windows, and flooring, allowing water leakage; crawlspace left unfinished, wet, inadequate ventilation; a litany of other little things that ultimately cost me another $150000 to take finish the project.

When we hired
Alexandria Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
it was based on the impression we got from its owner,
Alexandria Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
. He seemed knowledgeable, fair in price, and not too intimidated by the job, which several other contractors had been. Our project was basically rebuilding part of a room/covered porch that had been damaged due to wet rot and improper initial construction. All the while we did not want the new roof torn off or the room torn down to the ground.
The first day things went alright I guess and we were extremely impressed by the work done by the laborers themselves. As the job progressed we began to not only loose patience with
Alexandria Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
, but get extremely mad. The things that came out of his mouth at the end of each day seemed to imply the work was going to take a lot longer and cost a lot more than we had initially discussed. However this was not what we ourselves saw ,nor what the laborers told us when we spoke with them at the end of each work day. Additionally getting
Alexandria Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
to commit things on paper, such as price, job duration etc. was difficult despite the fact we had agreed to all those things prior to the job start. Another constant annoyance was
Alexandria Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
's inability to keep track of his supply needs. He regularly asked me to fetch him supplies, which included construction trash bags and all the siding supplies. When he finally asked me, and keep in mind I am a 5'7" female, to go and get a 4'x8' piece of plywood from Home Depot for the job by myself I quite literally could not believe my ears.
I do have to say that the workmen and women he hired for our job were excellent. They showed up on time, knew their stuff and did very high quality work. Plus they were drama free. If I had the option of hiring them without having to deal with
Alexandria Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
I would do it again.
We ended our job in accordance with the time frame we had originally proposed, but prior to the job being finished because we had had it with the drama. We didn't care that it wasn't finished. We were pretty sure that if we let
Alexandria Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
finish the job it would have run into June and cost us a fortune.

and his crew exceeded our expectation. We knew that the drywall work we needed done was going to be tricky due to the age of our house and the condition of the basement. The new walls look fantastic. All of our new sockets are up to code and are working great. The vanity and glass sink look great and are installed perfectly....More /> Anytime we added to the work the whole team was pleasant and happy to incorporate our new ideas. We will definitely use

is a perfectionist when it comes to carpentry, electrical and plumbing. Will post pics of my latest makeover in the works when it is complete. While working for JMW Construction (which I have also reviewed)
Alexandria Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
came up with all kinds of solutions to make my renovation visions come to life. He was the lead craftsman on my first two projects - a 1961 bathroom and a scary, unfinished laundry room that needed walls, new plumbing, lighting and a custom counter.
Alexandria Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
devised a way to make my custom counter vision come to life in limited space and look like it was always there. When it came to finishing the basement he took extra time and care to make sure that the set up would make the most of the space and be functional for our family. He built it from the foundation up, including a beautiful custom closet, custom shelving in the bath and egress and in the storage space. Finally, he was here again this spring making my kitchen come together. When Home Depot screwed all kinds of things up, he found ways to keep working so that we could stay as close to our timeline as possible. When they ordered the wrong height and I was about to send everything back over three inches of storage space, he came up with the idea of adding over cabinet lighting, which we ended up loving better than the original plan (and he spent tireless hours figuring out how to make it the proper voltage for a switch). This attention to detail and desire to exceed the homeowner's expectations are qualities that you can't always find when looking for contractors who you can trust in your home, and also charge fair and reasonable prices.

There is nothing
Alexandria Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
can't do. He did a full remodel of our large kitchen from August through October of 2013. He's flexible, handles curve-balls well, and follows through. His prices are fair and he's not satisfied until his customer is satisfied.

Two days after callilng it was fixed!!! I didn't even notice that anyone had been by my house or undone and redone the cover on my boat. Awesome.
Additional stories:
I've used Bill (HelpUBillMarine) for a few years now. He's done my drive maintence many times and helped me diagnose what turned out to be a dead cylinder. He is very easy to work with, very honest, and the fact that he is mobile (he comes to you!) is very convenient. I would recommened Bill to anyone looking to have ANYTHING done to their boat. If he can't do it, he won't try. He'll just refer you to someone who can.

This renovation was doomed from the start!
Alexandria Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
son and two workers came to demo the walk-in closet. It was a California Closet system and rather than taking it apart piece by piece they tore it off the wall causing it to be damaged, not keeping anything together for later use. The closet system was moved about without regard to its delicate nature thru out the entire renovation by almost every worker.

was pretty much non-existant when he needed to be here - he missed appointments he made to pick out tile (wife in car wreck) - Workers would show up and not know what to do - they would run out of materials - he hired a "painter" who had no idea how to strip wallpaper tho he had been a "painter" for over 20 years. The painter made the biggest mess I have ever seen - he ended up covering the entire first floor of our house with a thick
Alexandria Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
of dust. Even his "ace" painter did a lousy job and we needed to have another painter finish it right. The plumber, who is a personal friend of
Alexandria Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
, had to be replaced because we refused to let him come back in the house he was so bad! The plumber had visitors while he was working - dubious looking - why are these strangers in my house when they're not workers? The plumber fell thru the dining room ceiling adding to the hole he cut to install the tub. Installing the tub was a nightmare and the plumber dropped his measuring tape on the tub (a $3,000
Alexandria Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
Escale) which left a ding in the bottom. He continually complained and was just the most non-professional person I've ever met.

later hired another plumber to finish the job. Again,
Alexandria Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
is mostly nonexistent during the time he really should have been here. Personal and family troubles plagued
Alexandria Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
and while we sympathized with what was going on he should have handled everything much better - we even stopped work for a month so he could get things in order - didn't happen. The hardwood floors went in ok - they pounded so h****** the floors putting them in a light fell on the main floor and nail pops have come out where there were none before. The stairs, what a mess - they cut off the bull nose from the existing steps and put a new tread over them - they were stained, two hours later the polyurethane was put on - it bubbled up! They sanded them down and stained them again - two hours later they put on polyurethane again - guess what - it bubbled up again - turns out the stain needed to set 24 hours and then the finish be put on - we had to hire someone else to finish it right. We ended up telling
Alexandria Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
to leave and we would finish the
project the best we could - Overall, we wish we had never set eyes on this guy and his workers. I would never recommend him to anyone who wants a smooth renovation -
Alexandria Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
idea of doing something the right way is to do it three or four times till you get it right - too frustrating - please do yourself a favor and pass on
