I spoke with Jan and discussed three areas. He did not mention while on the phone that he cannot address the one area. He came to house to provide bid. During review of areas said that he thought we should repair sheds - which was never discussed. Ever. When we said we were not repairing sheds at this time, he still in the bid provided a bid for fixing sheds. Of the 648 and change quoted I asked about only a bid for weed clean up and painting ceiling crack in very small area. The bid only dropped by 45.00. Yet the original bid was predominantly about fixing the sheds. We also read on his site to mention a coupon if using Angie's List - we mentioned - there was not an adjustment for a coupon. Honestly, I am really confused. This is not my first home project by any means. We have a handyman in our area whom is ill but who typically quotes hourly. I am not comfortable with a bid without a breakdown; with a quote that does not reflect what we discussed previously; mentioning a coupon but then not following up. There is no trash removal because we have garbage pick up. My family and I had done most of the work but now needed final weed clean up. I was prepared to spend about 400.

AR. M. Construction
Overall, this was a very good experience. Written proposals were received from three handyman service providers found on Angies List. R.M. Construction (Rance McKeithen) was chosen based on reputation, knowledge, presentation and price. References were called. Official contractor registration was obtained from the Pennsylvania Office of Attorney General's Bureau of Consumer Protection. A contract was executed detailing the work to be performed, start and end dates, and payment schedule. It was followed. As agreed, I bought all materials direct from the supplier (Home Depot) and contracted for a dumpster (Allied Waste Services). Half the labor cost was paid at the agreed 50% completion point and the remaining 50% on satisfactory completion of the work. I felt safe with this arrangement. It was proposed by the contractor. I am very happy with this work. The repaired shed looks like new. The new pool equipment shed, designed by Mr. McKeithen, looks good and is much easier to use than it's predecessor. Mr. McKeithen was very reliable and kept me well informed of his progress and schedule. No change orders were needed.

I have a wooden tool shed attached to my house that had carpenter ant damage and needed to be repaired and painted.My garage door also needed paintnig. I contacted Mr. Meighen by email and he was prompt in his response. He was very prompt in arriving to my house to look at my tool shed. Michael was very personable and professional. It took just one day to complete the work. Michael provided the white paint( for trim) for the shed and the garage door. I bought paint just for the shed. Cleaning off the moss on the roof would be if time permitted.I'm glad he had the time! I was very pleased with how my tool shed turned out. Almost looks brand new!! I would definitely work with Michael again!

One of the best experiences with a contractor we have ever had (and we've had some really, really BAD ones for sure). Lyle was very knowledgeable not only about the different types of sheds but also about municipal requirements for the installation. Mt. Lebanon has very strict regulations with regarding to building structures on the property. Shed looks terrific -- a little more than we had originally planned on but this shed enhances the back yard and allowed us to clean out the garage and move equipment to the shed. It locks, has a floor and we still have room to add our patio furniture and keep it nice and dry until next spring. It's a very small place but it's very close to our home and we are absolutely delighted with the new shed. Lyle came up and inspected the prep for the shed and came up again to inspect the shed after construction. Installers were done in a few hours. If you want a quality product installed correctly I strongly recommend Country Barns. A pleasure doing business with them.

ACOUNTRY BARNS OF PITTSBURGH
I have been searching for a shed for sometime now. Being a single female I wanted a shed I did not have to paint or mess around with. When I had my new side walk put in I asked my concrete guy to pour a 8x10 pad in the back in case I wanted to get a shed. He helped me pick the perfect spot.After looking and pricing all around I finally came to Country Barns. Even though they were a bit more then the others(not the Box stores, they wanted more! ) they made the process simple and fun! My shed came in 2 weeks and looks great! The neighbors are pleased also!! Everyone says the price is good for this shed, I was hoping to pay a little less. But it is all vinyl.

Arrived on time. Was very friendly, and professional. Had no issues setting the shed where it needed to go with the help of a remote control trailer it arrived on. Price was just as it was supposed to be, I will use Yoder's Backyard Structures again in the future, as well as recommend them to anyone looking for a great shed at a great price.

They did what they said they would without any problems. Noah was easy to work with, helped us plan the pad for the shed, and worked with us to get the shed custom-painted to match our house. Everything was done on time as specified.

We are extremely pleased with our shed. The installers were so efficient, polite, and very neat. My correspondence with Wendy prior to our installation was great. We were concerned with where to place our shed and they came to look at the area and gave great advice. We would definitely use them again.
Recent Review: Nate was a little backed up schedule-wise when I purchased the deal, which was fine, because I had a lot going on for a couple of weeks myself. He did reach out to me once when he had an unexpected opening the next morning, but I couldn't make the appointment work with my schedule. When my schedule started to open up, I gave him a call. We arranged a date and time roughly a week out. He texted me the night before he was scheduled to arrive to confirm the time would still work. He showed up promptly, and in under 30 minutes had the outdoor light installed. Then he went to work on the fan, which he wrapped up in about 45 more minutes. Nate is a friendly, efficient handyman and after wrapping up the fan, he spent a few minutes with me talking through options for a door issue I have in one room. I asked him his thoughts on it and if he could replace the full-sized door with another option and he was frank with me about the cost and complications around that and recommended I speak to some folks at Lowe's who specialize in door installations for a less expensive option. I appreciated his honesty. We always need a good handyman for general things around the house, and I asked for Nate's card so I could call him again the next time something comes up that we need help with. I highly recommend him and his work!

They did a great job, they also made sure that I was satisfied with the result before they left.
