Recent Review: He bid the job, was extremely detailed in clarifying the services to be performed.  Did not try to work other jobs while this one was going on, and showed up when he said he would.  Was proactive on some issues we encountered, communicated very clearly about them, and was just fabulous!

Recent Review: In the 14 years at this house, the deck never looked this good before! The power washing removed stains that I thought were permanent, without fraying or damaging the wood. The staff were helpful, professional and conscientious -  final visit, they moved furniture back on deck and touched up a scratch from moving the heavy grill. I would recommend their work to anyone.

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.

DRent A Man
Not good......... Be warned: Despite the fact that the Jake, the owner of this company bought it over two years ago from the original owners, he has failed to update the new ownership info on the Rent a Man website. Eric and Joe are no longer the owners, and Jake seems to be riding the coattails of their good names around Durango. We got an estimate from Jake for a small concrete stain job, a set of two small stairs for our deck and door trim. During the job, one of his guys told us they would need to build a small 2-foot by 3-foot step at the base of our side stairs instead of using pavers. We said ok but never heard from Jake about substantial increase in estimate. When we got our final bill, it was $1800 more than his estimate. We were never notified that this new concrete step would cost us almost $2000. He did let us know that he forgot to include 6 hours worth of work in the estimate. Because of his error, he offered to lower the amount to only $1100 more than original estimate. Still ridiculous...... We ended up paying him $800 more than the estimate, which covered the 6 hours he forgot to list in the initial estimate and the work on our outrageously expensive cement step. I'm still not sure how he justified over 40 hours of labor when his estimate was for roughly 20. I found Jake to be incredibly uncommunicative and duplicitous about the upcharge, despite the fact that his website claims that Rent a Man always informs customers of price changes. They don't. I would emphatically recommend that you do not hire this company.
