I hired Provider name locked. of Provider name locked. to build a new fence for me in November 2014. The fence came out great and Provider name locked. and his crew got it done pretty quick. I also used Provider name locked. to fix some rotten fascia and siding around the house. Then in early 2015 Provider name locked. replaced the roof on my house. Needless to say my house looks great. We talked about painting but in the end, I went with a different paint contractor and he was totally understanding. Provider name locked. was always very honest about price and his scope of work. Not only that, but because this particular house was a rental/income property and I live out of town, he was super communicative with me. He was always timely -- with returning my calls, responding to my emails, and sending my pictures of the progress. I would definitely use him again!!

The main reason I hired Honey Do Krewe aka Provider name locked. is that the owner Provider name locked. 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 Provider name locked. 's quote was the highest (still very close though) 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 hired Provider name locked. and paid all money for this job directly to him and his company Honey Do Krewe which changed its name to Provider name locked. halfway through the job. He then hired another guy called Provider name locked. 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 painted the shutters and told me that each shutter would receive a coat of primer plus 2 coats of paint. I bought top-quality paint from Provider name locked. 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 Provider name locked. 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 January 2014 and everything seemed to go well. However, by June I noticed some rusting spots on the hinges. I contacted Provider name locked. 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, Provider name locked. 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 Provider name locked. responded blaming the problems on Provider name locked. , the guy he hired to paint the hinges. Then he said he could not get in touch with Provider name locked. and that Provider name locked. would not return his calls etc. and he suggested that I call Provider name locked. myself to resolve the issue with him directly. I did NOT hire Provider name locked. . I hired Provider name locked. of Honey Do Krewe/Provider name locked. and all of my payments were to him. I did not hire or pay or have anything to do with Provider name locked. or Provider name locked. 's subcontracting problems. I wrote back to tell Provider name locked. 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.
Now I will have to hire someone else to do this, which will cost a fortune.

This repair and paint job was an enormous job. I am very pleased with the results. Provider name locked. 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.
