Recent Review: I contracted with Add a Deck of the Rockies (Anthony Clem) to have my old deck removed and replaced with a new covered deck in June 2015. The work was scheduled to take two weeks but actually took three weeks to complete because of a delay in getting metal roofing materials. Other than the delay, the work was completed satisfactorily and I am pleased with the result. I would recommend this company to anyone who wants or needs deck work. They were prompt, showed up when scheduled and performed the work in a professional and quality manner.

Recent Review: My dad's living room is a sunken living room.  It was very difficult to get his wheelchair up and down this one step. Adam of Neatnics came to the house, examined and measured the area for a wheelchair ramp. He brought a sample fold-up ramp (about 6 or 7 feet long). I found I still had difficulty pushing the wheelchair on and off the ramp. Adam came up with an ingenious solution.  He installed a stiff vinyl-type wedge at the top of the ramp and a large piece of lexcon at the foot of the ramp. This allowed an effective and easy way to get the wheelchair up and down the one step. We are very pleased with his solution.   Thanks, Adam!

Recent Review: Paul came over and gave us an estimate.  We thought it was very fair, gave him a deposit for materials, which he immediately ordered and began work the following week.  He is a perfectionist and took 3 weeks to complete our project.  Every cut was done with precision and we couldn't be happier.  He is extremely polite, honest, and unassuming.  All he wants to do is complete a project that pleases not only him, but his customer.  Every evening he cleaned his work area and picked up debris and swept the walkways. We can't wait for him to have more free time in his schedule to do some other projects in our home.  He is a jack-of-all trades, master craftsman and can do a multitude of household projects, repairs and remodels.  We give Paul our highest A++++ rating!

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.

We were very pleased with the final product. All 4 of our wood decks were replaced and it was almost as if we got a new house. Being at an elevation of 9 000 feet meant snow became an issue in late fall and early winter, but the workers progressed quickly while still doing high quality work.

Overall, OK. But person who came could not do everything. Relatively new employee was excellent carpenter, but spent a lot of time trying to determine noise from dryer and eventually gave up (but I had to pay for the time). Ran out of supplies/necessary tools and had to leave to purchase or get them (on my time). Hard to reach person who schedules workers; much back and forth calling.

This is the second time I have used John Houston to make improvements to my home. This summer he built the porch roof and re-roofed and shored up a back patio roof a storage area attached to back of the house. We haven't had a leak since! And the winds haven't ruffled a single shingle. John also took some left over scraps and build a small addition to my tiny back porch stairs to make the area larger and safer. The addition of the actual front porch has added greatly to the value and comfort of my tiny home. When I'm able to add the storage area I need I'll call him back for the third time! He is kind, listens, always professional, and makes sure I'm in on all decisions. He even made sure the pets were fed and had water when I had to take my husband to the Emergency Room! My husband died before the porch was completed but he often remarked on how nice just the sheltering roof made our home.
