Reviews in Cincinnati for Building Wheelchair Ramps

FJack-Of-All-Trades
He was on time, did good work. It took him quite a while for the grab bars in the kitchen. The things he did, he did well. He said he would build a concrete wheelchair ramp, but never came back and now he won't answer my calls.

FDistinctive Design Remodeling
Distinctive Design Remodeling LLC has, at first glace, a very good reputation on both Angie's List and the Better Business Bureau of Lexington, KY, which is why I called them.  They sent out Ray M., a salesman with quite the line.  He arrived at approximately 4 pm, explained how DDR was the top rated remodeling company in the tri-state area on Consumer Reports, said they had an excellent rating with the BBB, and provided me a list of "references".  He kept calling me "brother" and his pricing was, according to him, at a deep discount because I am disabled and a retired federal employee.  He made vague descriptions of the addition with cathedral ceilings, a GE outdoor 25,000 btu heater/air conditioning unit, excellent sliding windows, French doors, and a five foot wheelchair ramp, and wrapped it up with the claim his profit would be only 10%, and "sign here".  I would have to buy my own ceiling fan and flooring for some reason and have the flooring installed separately.  I wondered why. I told him I wanted to wait until January 2014 to take the money out of my retirement account, and he said "brother", you can get an interest-free $40,000 loan through me and payment won't be due for 120 days!  "Sign here".  He then went on to say his deep, deep discount was because he currently has five other jobs in the Florence area, and all prices will increase Jan. 1, 2014 because of the cost of materials and new code requirements like 2x6's required, not 2x4's, and higher insulation values - all of which will add at least $10,000.  "Sign here."  So I signed. That night I realized by giving him my date of birth, social security number, and other personal information, he could apply for a loan "on my behalf", and I started to worry that I had not received any specifications, drawings, etc.  Under KY law, you can void an agreement or contract within the first three days, so I called him to tell him not to do anything.  He again pressed the hard sell.  I said no, stop everything.  I then wrote a letter to DDR informing them in writing I was terminating my sales agreement and nobody should use my personal information to borrow money, and they must destroy all my paperwork. I got a credit report alert that on Thursday, a credit report was requested by DDR and a bank.  I called DDR and left a message with their answering service (during business hours).  On Friday I spoke to Jon Penn, the owner.  He said he'd read my notification, and he would not proceed.  An hour later Ray calls with "great news".  When I tell Ray I have terminated the agreement, he first lowers the cost so "I'm getting stuff for free!", and then he accused me of lying to him.  I told him not to contact me anymore, and I hung up. I am not implying Ray or DDR were going to use my information to obtain a loan for $40,000 interest-free for six months (he changed it from 120 days to 6 months) to defraud me.  But after seeing DDR has had 4 complaints with the BBB since 2/2012, and 3 in the past year, I grew suspicious.  I had not received any details of the materials to be used other than the GE 25,000 btu heater/AC, which for a 16 x 14 sunroom is overkill.  I had no idea how many windows or the size of the windows (I emailed asking, and never got a response).  I had no clue of the quality of materials, and based on Angie's List reviewers, the quality of the workmanship is hit or miss, depending on who you get.  I noticed in the BBB complaint that DDR was angry that the complainant filed the complaint after DDR paid a settlement, and some here in Angie's list remarked about sloppy work.  Of the 39 reviews, none of the A+ reviews went into much detail, compared to the less than positive reviews, which provided a lot of detail. The experience taught me never, never sign anything or provide personal financial information before you get all the specifications, drawings, listing of materials and hardware, etc.  Never be pressured by a salesman telling you he's taking a loss at this price or is able to offer such a deep discount because he has 5 other jobs in the immediate area right now and can save money grouping them together, and you must sign immediately or lose out on the massive discount.  Other reviewers have written of the same claim.   Buyer beware with DDR and other construction outfits; their pricing doesn't indicate good value, just alleged low pricing.  Without specifications and a detailed cost breakdown ahead of time, how can you sign a sales contract knowing you are paying fair market rates for labor and materials?  You can't!

AAll Around Joe LLC
Joe takes care of my mother's house & coordinates repairs with me from afar (AZ to OH).  Both my mother & I regularly provide him with lists of things that need fixing & he schedules time to get them done.  I trust him implicitly - to do an excellent job, to charge us fairly, to watch out for safety issues in her house.  He does the work in such a way as to hold down costs for my mother, yet insure her comfort and safety. I visited my mother's house this month & was able to see the quality of the recent work.  Everything was outstanding! Joe is a perfectionist with even the smallest jobs.  We couldn't be more pleased with him - we highly recommend him! Joe is very fair in his pricing.  Only about half of these charges was for labor. The rest was materials cost, as Joe picks up whatever we need for the job.

FJM Decks & Fences
I do not recommend this business. The initial workmanship was very poor. Antonio had to essentially rebuild the deck AFTER I pointed out all of the workmanship issues. It was not an easy discussion. For some reason they applied a tinted sealant to the steps which was very tacky and the tackiness never went away. When I hired someone to stain the deck they were not able to apply stain over the sealant. I called Antonio and asked him to sand or replace the steps and he refused. He referred me to the contract which says nothing about applying sealant to the steps. He now will not answer my calls or text messages. I paid a premium for JM Decks & Fences because Antonio convinced me of the quality of his workmanship. That was a mistake. Now I have to replace the steps at an unexpected and additional cost so that I can stain them.

ABuilding Character LLC
I couldn't be happier with my new deck and pergola. From the initial quote through project completion, Building Character was easy to work with and provided frequent, clear communication. They helped manage my budget by discussing options and trade offs. The crew was extremely organized, efficient, courteous, and professional, and they kept the job site very clean. They completed the job in just 3 days, with high quality and craftsmanship. Everyone was a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend Building Character for you deck project.

Some delays. Slow in completing project. Quality was not good. Our home was part of Homerama in Cincy, and the repair work was not up to our standards.

I would not refer Joe for any composite deck work. While he did claim to have worked with composite materials before, it became apparent early on that this was not the case. Joe and his partner used fascia screws in solid deck boards resulting in over $300 of wasted materials. Additionally, the cuts were poor and not square. He did not keep a clean workspace and left screws all around my deck and lawn. I had to let Joe go before completion of the project. While he did cover a portion of the materials damaged, hiring Joe will set my deck project back months.

ACOMBS BUILDERS INC
This project went well from start to finish. Combs Builders was recommended to us by friends who had their home built by them. After discussing the project with Rob Combs, an estimate was promptly submitted and accepted by us. A start date was agreed to and that was when the project started. (On time - imagine that) The project was finished on time and on budget. This was one of those rare experiences when the results were better than anticipated. We couldn't be happier. We're now discussing a storage shed project with these folks.

Recent Review: When it came time to rebuild my 25 year old wood deck, I was faced with several options. Do I do the work myself, or hire a contractor? Do I use wood again, or upgrade to composite materials? I decided to talk to at least one contractor to get an idea of cost, and selected Delco based on the great reviews here on Angie's List. I asked Mike to quote both wood and composite, and I specifically requested DuraLife Siesta, as that is the top-rated composite decking according to the leading consumer magazine. I had already removed the railings and most of the original decking myself. Mike came back with what I felt was a very competitive quote for the composite option, so that made our decision easy. He was able to re-use the existing posts & beam and ledger board, but everything else was new construction. Mike was a pleasure to deal with throughout the process. Whenever there were choices to be made, he explained the pros and cons of each option but put no pressure on us to choose one solution over the other. He takes obvious pride in his work, and doesn't cut any corners. If something doesn't look quite the way he thinks it should, he re-does the work until it looks right. I didn't keep track, but he probably took about a dozen days to complete the work, including a couple of Saturdays. He worked mostly alone, though he did bring in a helper a couple of days. So how does our new deck look? In a word, fabulous! If we ever need to have additional remodeling done around the house, our first call will be to Mike.
