Recent Review: I was given advice about the best way to deal with a garage door that has been damaged. The pros and cons were discussed. Dylan educated me about the different products the company uses and what I could expect. I was given a bid for potential future service.

Recent Review: The whole process was very painless. The company is very professional and anytime we called or emailed with questions they communicated very promptly. We went to their showroom and picked the door we wanted which wasn't very easy because they have so many beautiful doors to choose from, finally choose the Pietra with kick plate. The salesman/owner told us about a new feature- screens so when the windows on the door are open we still have some privacy. We love them. We also wanted an additional deadbolt besides the regular door handle - no problem. We were told the lead time for the delivery of the door would be 3 months from the day we ordered it - and that's exactly what the timing was, we put in our order on Aug. 9th and the door was installed Nov. 11. That is an A+ in our book. The installers came right on time. They said that the whole installation would take approx. 7 hours. They were installing a double door entry and taking out our existing doors. They arrived at 10:30am and finished at 4:30pm with maybe a 1/2 hour for lunch. They did a wonderful job. We were very happy with our whole experience. We would most certainly recommend Universal Iron to anyone.
Recent Review: Custom home with 10 + pocket doors all in need of new tracks. 10 + additional regular doors needed replacement or repair. Ken is a true craftsman. Excellent work - repaired all pockets with new tracks and did not remove any wallboard due to a proprietary mechinism he developed. Have used him on multiple occassions over the years, always very satisfied. Highly recommended.
Recent Review: I found a lot of companies on Angie's List and I was actually down to two companies, Ichord being one of them. They were nice people. They showed up on time. The one thing that I like the best about them was they called me to follow-up. They called me after the estimate and they called me a couple days ago to follow-up. They followed up with me, but the other one didn't. The price was excellent. They were actually the cheapest. Two companies that I was down were not because of the price, but the feeling that I was getting from the company. The quality was very good. I have used them for my other residence also.
The work started on a Thursday. Five of eight windows were completed on Thursday as well as the sliding glass door. Work started promptly at 8:30 AM and ended at 3:30PM. When the installers started, each work area had it's own drop cloth to collect dirt and debris. Everything was done with the upmost care and consideration for our home. On Friday, the installers completed the three remaining windows as well as the wood trim around the sliding glass door. We did have a concern with the sliding glass door but the installers addressed it and did not stop until we were satisfied. The technician were very thorough with their cleaning. All the dust and dirt was cleaned up, the blinds were rehung for us, and the windows were thorough cleaned and shined. I was really impressed. The only recommendation I would suggest to buyer is around the area of doggie doors. We purchased a doggie door to be installed into our sliding glass door. Everything appears to in working order but the height from the ground to the starting point of the doggie door is an issues for our pugs. If I knew the height from the ground to the bottom of the doggie door would be an issue for out dogs then I would not purchased a doggie door within the sliding glass door.

Very well - able to overcome a screw-up of the contractors who replaced the floor (forgot to leave room and a transition piece for the front door); prompt. Minimal dust creation and cleaned up the job site when done.

Day 1 - Arrived later than expected. He gave estimate and listed needed parts. We agreed to proceed; he agreed to obtain parts. Day 2 - diagnosed patio door problem, fixed track & rollers. Another set of doors ( French doors ) were sticking badly, hard to open. Frame was reattached with longer screws. Threshold was replaced - he worked right off truck to measure and saw. Door now opens easily and is 'plumb' again.

While the doors were expensive, the company was very professional, prompt, and easy to work with. The only issue we had was that the first set of doors had to be sent back because the place where the handles were to be installed were in the wrong place. We dont know if this was a manufacturing issue or not? Other than that, the doors are beautiful. We would use them again.

Tenant used water on laminated floor and in some places the floor was popping up. Phil fixed it by carefully cutting out the damaged pieces and used callking to cover empty spaces. It looks very smooth and nice. The tenant couldn't close the laundry door. I asked three people to fixed it, but none did a good job. Phil adjusted the door and it works. The shower door was sagging and it couldn't be closed. Phil spend time and find a creative way to fix it. Works great.

Kevin and his team did a wonderful job. Very professional about his work. Looked after the small details. One thing he said to me was that after the job, you wouldn’t know he was there, just beautiful doors installed. Definitely going to spread the word

He was prompt even though called at the last minute and he came after a full day's work elsewhere. Hung the doors. In one case the rough opening was smaller than professionally usual, but John Krick was able to hang the door plumb.

I never used a handyman service before and was not sure what to expect as I was use to doing most general work myself. I'm now physically limited to what I can do, so I came to Angie's List and called Handyman Construction. The gentleman I spoke with asked me about the type of work I was looking to have done and after a few more questions said that he would have one of his top handyman by the name of Bobby call, to schedule a time to meet and discuss the work to be done. Bobby called later in the day and we set a day and time to meet. Bobby arrived at the job location on time and we went over the job which included doing a complete front door replacement, doing a complete door jam replacement and re-hanging the existing door at the rear of the house and doing a complete door replacement on the detached garage behind the house. Mined you this house was built in 1940 and sat vacant for 3-4 years and we purchased it as a flipped home. The contractor that did the work just threw some doors on and they did not seal well at all. The door jams were not square and the back door did not open all the way due to the stone floor tiles they installed. Anyways, Bobby gave me a written estimate, list of materials I needed to buy ( pre-hung doors, door handles, moulding etc. "I wanted something to do") and said he could start the job as soon as he completed other work he had in progress. I called Bobby a week later and scheduled a start date and 9 am start time. Bobby arrived early and was ready to go to work. He wasted no time and was on a mission of doing a top notch job from start to finish. This guy knew what he was doing and I'm a person who judges by a persons actions. He worked non-stop, brought his lunch and ate on the go. It's nice to see someone that takes pride in his work and is dedicated to his job! I'll tell you what, this guy worked hard for his pay and gave me everything I expected in both fit and finish of all the doors. All doors were set perfect, spray foam insulation around all doors for complete weather seal, moulding, door handles, etc and he cleaned up after himself upon the end of each day. Bobby was very professional and polite. On a scale of 1 to 10, I would give Bobby and Handyman Construction a 10+++.
