His work is great. We went over the type of and size of windows I wanted, he brought me samples of paneling and carpet to choose from, and matched the paint to what was already on the house. He's also a great problem solver of things that we come across while the work is being done. I highly recommend

Roofiing went great but
Spokane Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
refuses to give us the receipt for roofing material which Ziggys told us we must have for our 25 yr warranty.
Spokane Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
's reply was "Have them come to me if there is a warranty issue".
Insulation installing went fine. Attic blow-in still needs to be inspected. He installed the sheet rock on walls and ceiling but should had used the longer than 8' length sheet rock as we had 9 ft walls.
Another reason was because the finish job on the sheet rock was NOT a satisfactory job. He is not a sheet rock finisher. We marked each area needing improvement three to four different times. Finally we were told that was the best he could do...
So my husband and I began painting the ceiling and walls until we realized we would never be happy with what we were seeing as we painted. This made us upset because we hired assuming he knew how to do the work and we wanted our new addtion to be beautiful! We were paying good money and expected a great job!
Weeks went by...we ended up hiring a sheet rocker who knew the art, being it was his full time job, and he came with excellent references. He spent three days hard at work fixing what he could and did an amazing job! The cost was 800.00 more out of our pocket.
Then it was time for the window trim to be put in after we AGAIN primed and painted the newly sheet rocked room. We painted the trim ourselves and then
Spokane Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
came over to cut and hang it which was a fine job...all except the calking to fill all the nail holes was thick and globby which ruined the painted trim.
Spokane Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
never returned to make it look nice. We actually had to replace some of this window trim. We were ready to just close the deal with
Spokane Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
and deduct that which was totally fair. 500.00 from sheet rock job, and because he never returned to do floor baseboard, which we were willing to do ourselves at that point, deduct only the cost of the baseboard material in the amount of 190.00. We wrote up a letter with the deductions we thought were very fair and brought it all to his attention. We were surprised of his attitude and lack of understanding.
Unfortunately, there is another problem besides settling with those two deductions. We gave
Spokane Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
a 3,000 check and 500 cash before he started the job ...which we have proof on paper with the total of 3,500 along with his initials. He refuses to acknowledge the 500 cash at this point. ALSO
Spokane Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
received another check from us seperate from his bid. The inspector, at the last minute, wanted us to do a radon job and we paid
Spokane Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
his high bid of 360 for that... plus he was going to install a small window for us at a later date. He received a check totaling 500.00 for both jobs. The radon job was completed but the window job was never started, giving us a credit of 140.00 which
Spokane Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
also chooses to ignore.
It's not that we are being unfair. We feel he really does not care about satisfying us, his customer, that he can not admit/apologize for his shortcomings on this job and is denying past payments and credits we have already made.
As we searched further we found that he wasn't the owner of this company as we assumed. His wife is the one bonded and insured and he works for her. So we sent a nice letter to his wife explaining the details, but she told us we need to deal directly with her husband. So now we are lost...hoping Angies List can assit us in resolving this issue.

It all looks perfect. I love having no grout in the bathroom. The glass walk in shower is nice and adds to the feel of spaciousness in the little space that I have. The linen closet has much more room but takes up much less space because it's situated well.

We needed to have our stairs repaired after a moving company dropped our 880 pound safe down our stairs.
Spokane Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
came out promptly and gave me an estimate. He was on time, professional, and knew exactly what needed to be done. He estimate was fair and reasonable and his estimate was emailed to us which was really nice. It was the most professional estimate I received out of 4 contractors giving us bids. It broke down the details of all work that was going to be performed. He was able to complete the job in 1 day which was really nice considering other contractors told us it would be a 2 day job. He gave a great suggestion to solve our problem with having a tear in the carpeting on the stairs and not having any of the old carpet to match. He was able to repair the existing carpet for us which was huge for us since none of the other contractors mentioned anything about being able to repair it. This saved us a lot of stress and worry about trying to match the existing carpet. He did a great job, was very professional, and cleaned up all debris. We will definitely hire him again for more projects.

Sergey did a great job. He was good to work with and flexible. I dug the hole and he hauled the dirt away before putting the window in. He was very willing to answer questions. Communication was as good or better than most contractors I've worked with-they're juggling a lot of jobs. He did a quality job with the actual work, looks great! Much better price than other estimates I got.

came in while I was at work and did an excellent job with my tile. He had to move the toilet, move an electrical outlet and extend my shower plumbing. He had knowledge to do the entire job. The tile looks beautiful

This review in short form: When
Spokane Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
came to do an estimate for remodeling a bathroom in our home, he told me he's dedicated to satisfying his customers. Talk's cheap; results are what counts, and
Spokane Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
delivered. In spades.Details follow.
Spokane Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
has a wealth of experience and good ideas. Tell him what you want and he will make it happen. Get into an area of your project where you're uncertain about the best way to proceed and he will offer alternatives, possibly including ones you hadn't thought of. If in doubt and you follow his suggestions, you will in all likelihood be glad you did, as we were.
A remodeling project brings a certain amount of disruption to your home and your life.
Spokane Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
is impressively good at minimizing the impact. He plans his moves. He lays fresh runners before the start of each work day, brings in the tools and materials he will need that day and removes most of them at the end of the day. There's little stockpiling in your midst. He also works cleanly and neatly. In our experience, any job that involves ripping out and replacing wall board inevitably means clouds of chalky dust and chalk bits will spread well out from the immediate work area. The degree to which
Spokane Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
minimized that was remarkable. It was also greatly appreciated. I saw how he put in vapor

and insulation. It was all neat and straight, no sags, no gaps, nothing uneven.
Spokane Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
takes ownership of a project, in the sense that he doesn't just work over and around things done in the past that aren't quite right. Instead, he fixes or replaces them so they are right. In our project he did that with a soffitt that wasn't precisely plumb and square. He straightened out some awkward pipe work behind the wall and, unlike whoever put that piping in, secured the new pipe properly to studs. He replaced some old plumbing parts that worked but could become a liability if left in place.

also straightened out some questionable wiring. These were mostly things that wouldn't show but could lead to problems later on. Satisfying the customer includes not leaving behind potentially unpleasant surprises that could crop up weeks or months after the job is done, so

takes care of them.

's wall board finishing and tiling exhibit the same care and skill. Both turned out great.
We went shopping for a ready-made vanity and medicine chest. Some were good looking but not a good fit for our space. Most of the ones we saw were thin veneer over particle board.

said that if we preferred he could build what we wanted in the size we needed. Photos of cabinetry he has created for others looked more appealing than the ready-made kind, so we had him build ours in the style of those in our other bathrooms.

built us a vanity, medicine chest and free-standing linen closet. They are all wood, solidly made, very nicely finished and look terrific.
How to better heat the bathroom was an area of uncertainty where we went with

We live in a 1910 home on the South Hill. Large kitchen, last remodeled in the early 90s. Small master bath, probably remodeled the same time. Hall bath for other bedrooms must have been remodeled long ago. We were looking to update, but not so much upgrade, all three rooms. We had
Spokane Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
do some window/door replacements and some 2nd-floor porch rework around 2001 that turned out really well, so we called them again to bid this job, and we called three other contractors that we met at one of the home shows.

wasn't the lowest bid, but nor were they the highest. What they were, though, right from the start, was the most professional. From the questionnaire at the outset to make sure they understood what we were considering, to the completeness of the first quote, to the accompanied visits to the suppliers, to the modifications and alterations to get the right mix of updates for a price we could afford, they were professional, courteous, and thorough.
We settled on having them replace kitchen counters with granite and tile backsplash; replace sinks, faucets and appliances; add a
Spokane Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
hood (which needed some challenging fan ductwork done to keep the duct
Spokane Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
in the wall) and under-counter lighting; replace damaged ceiling drywall and ceiling lighting; replace two original sash windows with modern double-pane sash; and repaint. In the master bath we wanted a full size tile step-in shower with glass doors to replace the jetted tub; matching tile floor; new vanity and sink; they built a custom corner cabinet with granite top; two more original windows were replaced with double-paned and the old wood window trim and sill that were pretty beat up were replaced with custom-made moulding that matched the old (not available anymore); and new lighting and paint. The hall bath had a clawfoot tub that we'd had enough of, so they replaced it with a tub/shower combo with tile walls; the plumbing on one end required a wall extension, and at the foot of the tub they put a large glass panel on top of a newly-built tub-high wall; retiled the floor and walls; new sink and vanity; another old sash window replaced (with more custom-matched moulding); and repaint.
The quality of their work and attention to detail was outstanding. Sure, there were a few snafus along the way like any project, but they addressed them immediately and to our satisfaction. Like a kitchen counter top that overhung the counter more in one area than in another: removed, recut, replaced. Some not-so-well-covered paint areas: another coat. They were pretty much on time with their schedule, and were flexible to changes along the way. All three rooms went very smoothly and turned out gorgeous.
I'd recommend these guys to anyone who wants a team of skilled professionals working on their home. They live up to their name, as real
