,Prior to moving across the country from CA I hired a handyman, previously used on several other occasions, to remodel the kitchen/bath on 30 year old condo we owned and rented in Garden Grove, We paid for the purchase of appliances and materials and also gave an advance prior to his starting. He did purchase the appliances and started the job. For some reason, within three days of starting he disappeared (finally found after 10 weeks...but that is another story). At this time our tenant was without a kitchen, or downstairs bathroom, we had completed our move across country, and I had a kitchen and bathroom that were in shambles. None of my contacts or friend's had a name or number that they felt worthwhile giving me. I hooked up with a company that was so unclear of the costs to perform the job that after almost two more weeks I told them they were not getting the job. I went to Angie's List, spoke to several well rated individuals but they were not able to start my job for anywhere from 4-12 weeks (glad everyone in L.A./ O.C. is that busy). I came across Don Lewis who advised me he was capable of getting my job done in between contracts. I chose Don out of desperation.along with the great ratings he shows on Angie's List. We discussed my situation, he went out to look over the job, we communicated several times, I made flight arrangements to return to Orange County to make certain the job was started with the proper cabinets, tile, paint, fans, faucets, etc, etc. I arrived two days after he started (he performed the tear down and prep. When I arrived we went to good old Home Depot and purchased all items necessary. Don was easy to work with. He had to work around my tenants that still occupied the premises, his prices were excellent and he performed every detail that we discussed and contracted to have done. Just prior to finishing the water heater in the condo started leaking and he replaced it during the time he was performing the contracted work. The tenants remained happy, the clean up was thorough, I left CA and returned home with the knowledge that everything was in good hands. Don sent me followup photos of the completed work. I would rate my experience with a A++++ and recommend Don without hesitation. He is skilled, honest, and pleasant....what else can be said.
