Recent Review: Their work was top notch - the condo looks amazing. I will be using them again and again. They were friendly, easy to work with, communicative and their pricing was right on target with my budget. I could not have been happier.

Recent Review: JT is the only person I would have do work for me. He has taught me so much about HVAC.  He has told me what was wrong with refrigerators that only worked partially. He showed me how to use the little freezer cans that weren't designed to run all the time. He actually left me a can if the frost on the coil ever gets closer than a quarter of an inch to the motor. He bolted a microwave on top of a little freezer / frige and placed it next to my bed as i was bedridden after I had surgery. He has done all kinds of things for me, including replacing light bulbs. He sees my needs before I mention them. He is a good friend and he always checks on me. He is an excellent technician and he has shown me an awful lot. He knows his stuff and he is professional beyond belief. I have recommended him to a number of people.

Recent Review: Eric started with the roof, so we gave him money for materials for the roof.  The day before he was supposed to start he fell off the scaffolding at his previous job and broke both wrists.  After 6 weeks he came in with a helper to do the roof.  He did a good job on the roof but it took him 3 weeks and the time between the old roof being off and the new roof being on, we had rain and water leaked into the cabin into one of the bedrooms.  We were in renovation there so there was not much damage but a timely completion would have prevented this from happening.  When the roof was finally complete it passed inspection and we have no problem with the construction, however, the timeliness of his work could have improved. The next project was the interior flooring and tiling.  Eric proclaimed to be an expert tile guy with high end jobs in Breckenridge and Vail.  We hired him to lay engineered hardwood in the kitchen and living area and tile in the bathroom and hall.  He was also hired to re-tile a shower.  We were clear that this work need to be complete in 6 weeks as we had family coming out from Kansas to visit.  Eric said that this was not a problem.  We had also hired him to paint the outside and put in a new deck with a later completion commitment.  He said that he was perfectly capable to do this and the timing was not a problem.  We gave him $7,000 for deck materials which we were under the impression were going to be delivered to the house right away.  At the six week point, Eric had moved all of his equipment into our cabin so the cabin was unusable and the inside work was at about 45% completion.   The old deck was removed and piers were poured for the new deck, however, no decking material was delivered to the house.   In mid-November Eric got in a fight with his wife and according to the police report on the Park County Sheriff Blog on their website for October/November 2012, he punched her in the face and was charged with domestic violence and was taken to jail.  Eric bailed out of jail and came down to our house in Denver to explain the incident.  Eric explained that this was just a misunderstanding and he would work it out, but instead violated the restraining order against him and ended up back in jail.  During this time, unbeknownst to us, Eric had one of his carpenter buddies come in to complete the tiling in the shower and some work in the kitchen.  When Eric got out of jail, he came down to our house to collect the money for the shower tiling and kitchen work.  We were under the impression that Eric had done the work but 2 days later, Eric's carpenter buddy called us and asked when he was going to get paid.  We told him that we paid Eric so he would have to get the money from Eric.  He said that if he didn't get the money he would place a lien on our cabin.  In the end, Eric never paid his carpenter buddy, but luckily never placed a lien on our cabin either.   During this time while Eric was in jail, his wife took the remaining $6,000 that we had paid Eric for deck materials and spent it all.  The way that Eric and his wife had their company set up was that the company was in Eric's wife's name even though Eric bid and carried out the jobs.  Since his wife was the "owner" of the company, we filed a case in small claims court against her to get a judgment for the stolen funds.  In January, Eric has reconciled with his wife and wanted us to drop the small claims action.  We told him that if built us a deck, we would drop the small claims action.  Eric agreed to build our deck in a time frame between March 1 and March 15, 2013.  We called Eric in mid-February to see if we were still on track for the deck - he never returned our calls and the deck never materialized.   Eric and his wife showed up in small claims court where she admitted to the judge that she spent all of the money and we were awarded a judgment.  She was required to file interrogatories detailing her financial state.  She said she had no money, was out of work and was on welfare.  We found from her bank statements that many liquor stores in Leadville benefited from our money.  She has since moved and her email address and phones are no longer functional.  She is nowhere to be found. When we opened up the cabin in the spring, we found that much of Eric's craftsmanship was spotty.  The tile that he laid in the hallway had grout that was coming loose and there were several areas that were left ungrouted.  The microwave that was installed above the stovetop was mounted WAY too high and you can barely see the inside of the microwave.  The cabin was filthy with dust left over from the woodwork that was done.  The shower pan that Eric put in our shower leaks and our yard was littered with cigarette butts and roofing nails.  There was a pile of trash and debris left of the side of the cabin.  The outside of the cabin was half painted and the paint job that was done was of poor quality and needed to be entirely re-done.  We repainted the outside of the cabin ourselves and it took all of two weekends to complete the job with just my husband and myself. In my opinion Eric has an incredibly poor work ethic.  Jobs that should take no more than a day or two were dragging on for weeks.  I believe Eric has moved from the area and is now advertising his work to the senior community in a different part of the state.  This troubles me because Eric talks a good story but rarely delivers.  We spoke to several other carpenters in the area and found that Eric owed them money as well.  In the end, our experience with Eric was an epic failure.

I love the results.  Since the project was 2 hours from where Jack lives, he actually slept at the construction site for 15 days to save travel time and complete the job as quickly as possible.  He is a true professional builder and architect, able to accomplish every type of challenging project quickly and with a high degree of artisanship.  Using his artechitectural background, he also helped us design a studio, demonstrating a sense of design and knowledge of construction requirements.  He is confident yet extremely personable to deal with.  The project was a true success because of him.

Warning, this is long. My wife and I hired Mike for a kitchen/partial bathroom/front entry way remodel after getting bids from a couple different companies. I will start off by saying we are not high maintenance people but do expect a certain level of professionalism. We are not here to nitpick but I find it necessary to let other people know our story so it doesn’t happen to them. And maybe in hopes that Mike will take our comments seriously and learn some things from this. - First, love the granite counter tops in the kitchen and main bathroom, however, the granite in the other bathroom is different and chipped, we made it clear I wanted all the same counter tops throughout. - Love the kitchen sink. - The travertine tile flooring looks amazing and was recommended to me by Mike and there were some concerns about it cracking and he assured us not to worry. Well, we have had over 30 cracked tiles, most of which have been switched out but still continue to crack. Adding to that, there were some tiles that clearly did not go with the lot. For an example, one tan color travertine in the middle of gray ones, they did fix that though. - Kitchen – we did basically a whole gut of the kitchen and a lot of details were missed. * Starting with the ceiling they put new drywall in because they took out a drop ceiling and installed canned lighting. You can see the seams in the drywall and does not look professional. Mike mentioned while doing it that he was not a drywall guy and I offered to get a drywall guy onsite if needed and he said no, should have been a clue for us to not move forward with him. * We were moving the spot of the island and Mike said I had a while to figure out exactly where I needed it as they were not going to set the island cabinets yet. However, they laid the tile and pulled the electrical cord through in the wrong location. Nothing was even discussed with us about it and we discovered this once it was too late. However, hind sight would have made me have them change it back when I first noticed. But now we don’t have an electrical outlet in our island which is code. * Another layout error was an outlet that could have been moved over a couple inches but now it’s almost behind the stove and hard to plug anything in. * Not even sure where to begin with the cabinets, they are such a mess. First the base of cabinets are disgustingly dirty, I feel at the very least they should have been wiped down. Also, the edges of the base of cabinets are frayed as if he did not cut them correctly. The wood cabinets doors are a disaster, a lot of them the wrong size and don’t close properly. Also, some of them have a very different texture than the others (Mike claims it’s because the other ones had dust, but that isn’t the case). We are still missing cabinet doors above the microwave which baffles me because Mike had about two months to give the measurements to the cabinet guys and after switching out multiple cabinets doors, still doesn’t have them right, you either have correct measurements or you don’t. One of the cabinet hinges are stripped. Screws were put in to some of the cabinets too far and now there is caulk over it making it look very unprofessional. After looking at the cabinet box around the fridge because I felt it was uneven, I finally took out a measuring tape and sure enough there is a 3/4 inch different between the top and bottom. * They put in a new window which looks great, however, the trim around the right side of the window/cabinet is horrible. There is a bunch of caulk all the way down and just looks sloppy. * Dishwasher was put back in and is uneven and not attached. My wife mentioned this to Mike and he insisted it was correct. It is definitely not. - Living room – we have a step down living room about 6 inches or so and we needed to replace the trim around it. There is a part of the edge that needs to support some of the tile, which should have been discovered from the beginning before doing the floor but a little too late for that. They put melamine trim underneath with caulk between the trim and the tile so the tile has no support. That night we even found cracks and parts that “chipped” off, very unprofessional. - Main Bathroom – the flooring, lighting above mirror, vanity were updated. Granite counter top looks amazing, flooring and vanity are good. One major thing is the hole where they changed the lighting over the vanity and did not patch it, but, easy fix. - Master bath – flooring looks great, light above mirror looks great. As mentioned above, granite is different and chipped. The drawers in the vanity are a mess, they screwed the faces of drawers in too far and then caulked it, really sloppy. There was a big chunk of the inside of a drawer that broke off and they caulked it back on, it looks horrible. The trim around the floor is uneven and needs to be redone. The tile that was laid lacked a proper transition between the tile and carpet, poor planning. - They left huge messes when they would leave for a couple days (weeks) and not clean up at all. Walking up to our front door is a long walkway of stone pavers and then trek deck up to door, they clearly broke a bag of grout and carried it up to the house spilling it and then not cleaning it up. Now after having weather and it not coming off after pressure washing, I have a big mess to clean up after they said they would take care of it. - There have been delays with counter tops and because of those “unforeseen delays” Mike offered to paint for us (us pay for paint) if we helped. While we expect to see a mess and touch ups, we don’t expect it to be a disaster and unprofessional. Mike had so much over spray everywhere that I have put in at least 4 hours in cleaning up the over spray. He sprayed over light switches and places that weren’t supposed to be sprayed. - We sent Mike a list of things we felt needed to be completed before his next trip and he agreed that he would look at those items and fix them, well only a few of them were fixed. - Mike contacted me before his “last” trip (ended up being about a day and a half later than expected) and clearly stated that he would not leave until everything is finished. So that last afternoon they were there we brought up a couple issues with the cabinets doors, Mike said he was going to Fed Ex the cabinet doors that we needed which implied to us he felt he was finished. He said he would talk to his cabinet guy and let us know when the other cabinets would be finished and left in a hurry without even going over anything with us. The next couple days were discoveries of things that were promised to be finished but were not. Added issues were found. My wife let Mike know of these issues and he said he wasn’t finished. He also said in response to some of the issues “unfortunately I have helpers and sometimes they leave something that I’m unaware of it,” quote on quote. This leads me to ask, why would you not look over everything? Why would you hire helpers that you don’t trust or have pride in their work? Since then, he said he needed to hear back from the cabinet/countertop guy, after two weeks of hearing nothing we reached out to Mike again asking for an itemized invoice and he said he would be in touch when he hears back from the cabinets/countertop guys and have not heard anything back, it's been over a month. - We have been more than patient with expectations not being met and even explained to Mike what we expected and he understood. This was supposed to be a total of 3 weeks and everything would be finished. I know there are delays to be expected but we are now in the 3rd MONTH and actually have not heard any update in over 4 weeks. Although my wife and I know very little about the construction business, we do know quite a bit about business ethics. Whether or not you are doing a low end or high-end work, details and pride of work matter. Keeping your customer informed matters.
