    SES Enterprises LLC
    Great work! SES was very flexible and responsive, especially with coordinating delivery issues with the shed manufacturer. This was a large building - 12 x 20 x 10 high with heavy steel beams and a slab that had to be poured per engineering drawings. The crew worked safely and effectively, and their foreman was very knowledgeable about the materials and the construction. Very professional job, respectful of my home, flexible and easy to work with. They also handled all the permitting and inspections.

    Acadian Remodeling
    Benny and Acadian did a great job on two separate projects for us. First (early 2016), we had an old attached carport in our backyard that was no longer used as a carport. We wanted to convert it into a storage shed. He gave us a fair bid (we took 2 other bids, 1 was much higher than his and 1 was comparable). His workers were very considerate and professional when we met them. Benny was very responsive when I had questions. The project was fairly involved, because they needed to move some HVAC units out of the way, expand the size of the concrete foundation, frame the walls for the shed, wire the shed for electricity, replace the carport lighting fixture, install exterior lighting fixtures, and install and paint exterior siding to match the house. They did everything perfectly! Second (mid-2017), we hired them again a year later to replace the old railing on our front porch. We had a miscommunication with Bennie about what we wanted the replacement to look like. But Benny and his carpenter were very responsive when we realized that what his carpenter was constructing for was not what we wanted. They quickly changed course to build what we wanted and we really appreciated the quality work and professionalism. We are in the process of getting a bid from Acadian to do some more work for us!

    TUFF SHED INC - New Orleans
    The gentleman I spoke with was knowledgeable and willing to give me rough estimate over the phone even without seeing our property or the job. He was a bit pushy, though, and did not follow up after several attempts to reach him. E-mails bounced back and he didn't respond to texts and never called back. We went with another provider.

Always responds immediately to any questions, concerns, and MOST IMPORTANTLY, has been willing to add new projects as we were in existing projects.

    Acadian Remodeling
    We own a 100+ year old home in a historic district. Prior to the previous job I mentioned, they have worked on our house throughout the years.  Interior wise- they remodeled a bathroom (and they had suggestions for the design of the bathroom which kept in in keeping with the period of the house- it's beautiful); they also installed multiple layers of cove molding downstairs- the ceilings are 11 feet, so typical cove molding would not do.  They also did some drywall and painting.

    On the exterior, they constructed a fabulous pergola and a garden room detached from the house.  The garden room is a separate building and is made of reclaimed windows- a unique design with a unique shingle type roof with skylights.  About eight years ago they added a back porch with a balcony above.  The also added a door upstairs that opens out to the balcony.  When you look at the construction, you would never know it was added on.  It looks like it was built 115 years ago when the house was built. The porch and balcony above, pergola and garden room have transformed our backyard and home. 

    Their work is good and they have good ideas to add to my ideas.  I have been satisfied with their work.  The last job on our rental we had a mix up with what time we were meeting initially, but otherwise they are reliable about showing up and making appointments.  I would definitely hire them again.

    Associated Housing Contractors
    We are very pleased with the work provided by Associated Housing Contractors.  We had a very large shed on our property that was largely unusable because it was unstable and needed most of the interior concrete replaced. AHC replaced the bad concrete, re-routed water lines, upgraded electrical connections, stabilized the roof and building, poured concrete driveways, added garage doors and replaced the cement walkway running down the side of our house.

    Elbert and his crew were great to work with, and the finished product exceeded our expectations.

    10 Hands LLC
    Craig was very accommodating. We tried to set a few meetings to do the estimate but I had transportation issues. Finally, he went and looked at the fence. He submitted a written estimate and we agreed on the price.
    This is where it becomes almost unbelievable. I fell and broke my fibula.... The right leg of course....ending up in the hospital for 4days.
    I called him and explained what happened.
    He was so kind and generous. He came by my residence to pick up the deposit to start the job. He completed the job as promised and sent me pictures of the finished product. He even purchased new locks for the gate. My business partner inspected the fence for me and gave the thumbs up.
    He waited until after my hospital release to collect the balance.

    I asked him to please come to my residence for payment. He called and asked where to leave the keys for my new lock. I actually was able to hobble to the door and meet him for the first time! I usually do not handle business like this BUT he was indeed a God send.

    Everything went better than expected. I am sure it has to do with the fact that we are both honest business people.

    I would definitely hire him again in the future.

    Bartlett Construction LLC
    lWe are extremely satisfied with the performance of William Bartlett and his construction company. We wanted a garage to be built on the vacant half of a double lot owned by our daughter in New Orleans. We also wanted an apartment on the second floor above the garage to be used when we visit. Furthermore, we wanted the building to "belong" to its neighborhood in the Marigny. Mr. Bartlett was helpful from the beginning, offering suggestions to make the design more efficient. Specifically, he suggested a hip roof to replace the original design. During construction, Mr. Bartlett and his team were meticulous with  every detail. The project was in the making for several years and we had specific ideas on layout, materials, etc. Mr. Bartlett was responsive to all of our requests. We executed the project remotely and he was trustworthy and listened. We wouldn't work with anyone else and highly recommend him and his company.

    10 Hands LLC
    The main reason I hired Honey Do Krewe aka 10 Hands LLC is that the owner Craig is a friend of a friend. I asked for some recommendations and my friend recommended him.  I got quotes from him and two other companies and although Craig's quote was not the lowest, I decided to go with him because I thought a friend of a friend would do a good job.  And I thought that if there were any issues, that he would resolve them in a professional and friendly manner.  Unfortunately that has not been the case.  
    I originally got quotes from 3 companies for the painting and hanging of the shutters - when Craig quoted on the job, he quoted on the entire job including the painting and never said that he couldn't or wouldn't do the painting.  After we accepted his quote, I asked about doing the painting ourselves, and he said he would still be interested in doing the installation only.  In the end we decided to have him do the painting too, because it was too much of a job for us (24 sets of shutters). He mentioned that he would be hiring someone to help with the job (not just the painting), but never told me I needed to have a separate contract with this person. In fact I never knew the person's name or anything about him before he showed up at my house to help Craig. I hired Craig and paid all money for this job directly to him and his company Honey Do Krewe which changed its name to 10 Hands LLC halfway through the job. He then hired another guy called Teddy to help him with the work, which was understandable because hanging 24 sets of shutters on a 2 story house is not a one-man job.  They spent a day or two at my house going through the shutters and figuring out which ones went with each window, and Teddy was there for that, helping with the mapping out of the shutters, and also with the installation of the shutters.  Whether or not Teddy painted the shutters all by himself or with Craig's help, I do not know. I was certainly given the impression that Teddy was Craig's helper for the entire job (and in fact for a couple of subsequent jobs that I hired them to do after the shutters).  When I spoke briefly to Teddy, he reiterated that any work he did at my house would go through Craig, and any future jobs at my house would also go through Craig, because I was Craig's customer.  Craig told me that each shutter would receive a coat of primer plus 2 coats of paint.  I bought top-quality paint from Sherwin Williams because I wanted this to last a long time.  For the shutter hardware, he said that each piece of hardware would receive 3 coats of Rustoleum primer/paint to prevent rust.  The hinges were the Acme iron hinges that everyone in New Orleans uses. They were purchased from the Bank Architectural Antiques, but they were brand-new hinges. 

    He did this job in December 2013 and January 2014 and everything seemed to go well (hence the reason I hired them for a few other odd jobs).  However, by June I noticed some rusting spots on the hinges. I contacted Craig and sent him some photos and asked him to come over and take a look.  I was not at all angry or accusatory, because I was confident that as a friend of friend, Craig was a professional guy who would stand behind his work and remedy any problems that arose.  He did not get back to me, so I wrote again in August, and still not being angry about it because i knew he was busy, I just asked him to come and look at it.  I even told him I had a few other projects that I would like him to quote on, including some painting and repairs to my windows.  He finally came out at the end of August and looked at the hardware and acknowledged in person that there were bare spots causing rust.  He then said that as part of doing the new work on the windows, he would repaint the shutter hardware. I was fine with this solution.  A few weeks later, he emailed me back to say that because he doesn't have his Lead Paint Abatement certification, he would not be able to do the work on my windows after all.  I asked about the hardware and he ignored my email.  I followed up again in November, no response. Again in December, and he finally responded blaming the manufacturer of the hinges and the regular New Orleans rainfall in the previous 6 months (never mind that all of my neighbors have the same hinges with no rusting).  I went over to the Bank Architectural Antiques where I bought the hinges and spoke to them and they said they have never had a complaint about the hinges, and that as iron hinges they will rust if they are improperly painted.  

    I wrote back expressing my dissatisfaction and telling him what the Bank Architectural Antiques people said, and then Craig responded blaming the problems on Teddy, the guy he hired to paint the hinges.  Then he said he could not get in touch with Teddy and that Teddy would not return his calls, Teddy owed him money and wouldn't pay him back, etc. and then he gave me Teddy's phone number and suggested that I call Teddy myself to resolve the issue with him directly.  I did NOT hire Teddy.  I hired Craig of Honey Do Krewe/10 Hands LLC and all of my payments were to him.  I did not hire or pay or have anything to do with Teddy or Craig's subcontracting problems with Teddy.  I wrote back to tell Craig this and explained that I expected him to stand behind his work and remedy any problems.  He refused to do so and suggested I hire someone to repair my windows and also pay them to repaint the shutter hardware.  This makes no sense, because repairing the windows themselves has nothing to do with repainting the shutter hinges - I had only offered him this job before because I thought that making some extra money would soften the blow for him, since I knew that it would be time-consuming for him to repair the mistakes he made and I felt bad for him, even though it was his fault for doing it improperly or hiring someone who did it improperly.  Repainting the shutter hinges would require removing them from the windows and rehanging every single shutter, which is why he doesn't want to do it.  I offered for him to do it a little at a time or all at once - I tried to be accommodating and amicable in getting him to repair the job he did improperly, but he ignored me, then refused to accept responsibility, then turned angry and combative. His offer to repaint 3 hinge sets is completely ridiculous because ALL of the hinges and hardware are rusting, not just the few that he glanced at. I in fact showed him the bag of extra leftover hinges that weren't installed and pointed out the bare spots on them.

    Now I will have to hire someone else to do this, which will cost me approximately $1300 based on the quotes I've received so far.  I have asked him repeatedly to work this out in a friendly manner, and he has instead responded in an angry and accusatory manner, blaming the problems on me, the manufacturer of the shutter hinges, claiming my house doesn't have gutters or flashing (which is untrue), blaming the weather in New Orleans, and the guy who he hired to paint the hinges.  Not once has he agreed to stand up and take responsibility for his work.  The bottom line is that I hired 10 Hands LLC and he has done shoddy work and refused to remedy it, instead blaming his subcontractor.  I never had a contract with his helper Teddy, and in fact never would have hired someone that I knew nothing about. If Craig had told me that he was not qualified to do the painting himself and would only be able to do the installation, I would not have hired him either - I would have gone with one of the other contractors who bid on the full project.  But Craig didn't tell me he was unqualified to do painting work - instead he bid on the whole project.  And now it hasn't turned out well, and he blames the customer.

    Sweeney Restoration, LLC
    This repair and paint job was an enormous job. I am very pleased with the results. Devon Sweeney and his crew are very professional. He was receptive to my concerns when they arose during the course of the work. The house looks fabulous and I'll definitely be using him again as we continue our restorations.
