They did not color match my wall well and it looked like my wall has an infection. They tried to repair, but it still does not look great. If I would have known they had trouble matching colors I would have sat out there and picked the brick to replace in the wall.

Mike C showed up on Friday and got started right away on the electrical work. After much struggle (broken drill bit, problems running the wire) and cutting a hole in the family room wall, he called HC to get an electrician to come out. This was scheduled for Monday. Mike did have a helper who did the staining of the windows. Unfortunately the bay window turned out badly due to the window manufacture, not anything Mike or his helper did. Mike was real helpful in trying to figure out how to make it look nice but to no avail. Andersen Windows did come out to the house and look at the problem and determine it was their problem and will replace the seat and ceiling of the bay. The electrician, Lee, was able to do the electrical work in quick fashion. This resulted in an extra charge from the original quote. He did an excellent job! Mike finished varnishing the windows on Monday and completed drywalling the hole in the family room wall on Tuesday. Did a nice job cleaning up. Overall, I'm glad the work is done. The windows - after looking at them closer, the staining and varnishing could be better; I will be touching up the varnish (that is why I gave the 'B' in quality). I would hire Handyman Connection for other projects if the need arises.

We meet with Lonny Sekeres, who came out to the house to review our needs and concepts. Lonny designed the plans, suggested brick colors and textures, and took the time to review everything prior to the start of the project. His crew came out, removed the old landscaping, and built the retaining walls and decorative curved walls in two days. The final result looks great and we would definitely work with Lonny again on future projects.

We would (and will) DEFINITELY recommend them to friends, neighbors . . . to whomever. Thank you for a fantastic experience and the delivery of exceptional service, we are grateful!

EXCELLENT SERVICE. ONLY COMPLAINT IS THAT THE WALL ISN'T LINED UP PERFECTLY WITH THE EXISTING WALL BUT IS ACCEPTABLE. MAY WORK A LITTLE TOO FAST.

Chris and his team were really great to work with. Professional. Good communication from start to finish. Everything was on time. We would definitely work with him again. We are very satisfied with the final result. He was also very reasonably priced. We got three quotes for our job. One came back at 3 times as much as Chris's quote, and the other was almost double. They paid attention to details like taking care to not ruin the yard as they accessed our job site from the road and cleaning up everything when they were done. We can't say enough good things about Chris and his team.

Foundation totally gone. Schumm cleaned area down to the footings and rebuilt the foundation. Schumm also repaired a retaining wall and parge coated the wall. I am very happy with the quality of the work and the finished look of the retaining wall.

STEVE WAS ON TIME, POLITE, AND RESPONSIVE. HE DIRECTED ME TO OTHER ADDRESSES WHERE HE DID ROCK WALLS. I LOOKED AT THEM AND LIKED THEM VERY MUCH, BUT IN THE END DECIDED AGAINST A ROCK WALL AND WENT WITH SOMEONE ELSE. I JUST THOUGHT OF HIM AS A ROCK WALL GUY AND FORGOT HE DOES ALL SORTS OF WALLS. IF I DID IT OVER AGAIN I WOULD HAVE GOTTEN A QUOTE FROM HIM ON A RETAINING WALL SYSTEM. I LIVE IN ST PAUL AND HE WAS OK DOING THE WORK IN ST. PAUL. HE HAS DONE A LOT OF WORK IN SAVAGE.

AAmerican Landscape Company
Greg from American Landscape Co stopped by for a quote in regards to a medium sized retaining wall project (~$10k in cost). I was looking to replace and expand an existing retaining wall area next to my driveway to park a travel trailer. Greg understood right away what I was looking to do and gave me a bunch of really good suggestions, including some things I could do on my own. Ultimately, I ended up using his suggestion on some work I can handle myself. However, I'll be reaching out to Greg and American Landscape Co to upgrade the retaining wall in the not-to-distant future.
Recent Review: I don't think they could have improved on anything. They were very knowledgeable, professional, and did more than I even asked for. When they straightened out the wall it was above and beyond.
Recent Review: The end result was excellent. The owner, Jordan, is professional and reliable as well as being a friendly person. They had a crew of 6 or so people finish the work in 2.5 half days. Very competent and pleasant guys. We put in one new window which required punching a hole in the wall, and we found that all the power to the second floor was going through that wall. Jordan quickly found 2 good electricians to rewire all the power upstairs, and the work continued without a major interruption. Three months after the work is done, the windows and patio door are looking and working great. I would definitely hire them again. If you have any issues that the staff cannot resolve, you may want to let Jordan know, and he will find a quick resolution. Highly recommended.
Recent Review: While the project grew and lasted quite awhile it turned out great! There were 2 large walls built and we added stairs into one of them. The largest wall required an engineer. Both walls turned out great. Greg was very accomadating and also very meticulous. I would not hesitate to hire them again.
Recent Review: When the brick accent and stoops on the exterior of our 1934-era stucco house deteriorated, we looked to several referral websites for repair/replacement recommendations. Now that UWS has completed the work on our home, we can add our own review: John and his crew are outstanding! Every step of the process was top-notch and exceeded our expectations. At our first meeting and throughout the project, it was clear that John's priorities and strengths are attention to detail, client communication, and an aesthetic vision for the finished project. The new facade, now natural stone, greatly enhances the beauty and character of our South Minneapolis home. We continue to receive compliments from neighbors, friends, and complete strangers! We are pleased to tell people that we worked with John Laudon and United Wall Systems.
Recent Review: THEY HAD SOME VERY GOOD EQUIPMENT THAT MINIMIZED OTHER DAMAGE TO THE YARD. CHARLIE WORKED WITH ME. WE HAD A COUPLE OF INTERIM MEETINGS ABOUT THE PROJECT. I THOUGHT THEY WERE REAL GOOD. THE CREW WAS VERY CAREFUL WITH THE YARD. THE WALL TURNED OUT GREAT, IT WAS JUST WHAT I WAS LOOKING FOR!
Recent Review: Excellent. Greg was very responsive and professional and kept us up to date regarding scheduling. Work was done exceptionally well. Will certainly be our first call with any future landscaping needs.
Recent Review: Kurt is very professional and responsive to all our questions and gave us some useful direction in what was possible in a touch-up job. our paint is about 13 years old and we didn't want a complete job--just freshen up the interior and take care of any bare wood or peeling paint outside. make it look good but we didn't want to change colors and repaint everything. we're very satisfied.
Recent Review: The night they came out to give us the bid, he was on time. Very friendly. We discussed our options on colors and patterns for the stamped concrete. A suggestion was made to make the entrance steps wider. We did that and are very happy. We accepted the bid and discussed when the work would be scheduled. I was waiting to put my flowers in until after the work, otherwise my flowers would be in the way the crew doing their job. I got a call a couple of weeks later saying they could move our work date up so I could get my flowers in before Memorial Day. I appreciated that. They came to do the work on the scheduled date. When they tore out the concrete that another company had installed 4 years ago, they found it did not have any mesh or re-bar in it. That is why it was cracking so badly. That is a shortcut that other company took to save themselves some money. The next day they showed up on time, worked quickly and finished the job. The concrete looks great. We are happy.
