Recent Review: We have owned this has for 18 years. The siding was LP siding and it was in very bad shape. Several people including myself had patched areas of the siding with Hardy board. 15 months ago, my daughter's boyfriend decided that he would replace the front door. This installation did not go as planned. My wife and I decided that it was time to have proper repairs made to the home. Mitch Mixon from Rian-Tyler Construction had been recommended by a friend of my wife's. We contacted Mitch and he did an initial inspection and returned in two days with an estimate of repairs. He began work immediately. There were areas that required additional repair due to water damage from the bad siding. Mitch had figured this in during the initial estimate. The work was completed in a timely fashion. There were several days of rain during the installation, but Mitch and his group worked around the weather as much as possible. Mitch also reset the front door, installed a storm door, replaced the slider on the back of the house with French Doors and installed a new sliding screen that is compatible with the French Doors. I am extremely happy with the work done and would recommend him to anyone who is in need of repairs on the home inside and out. As a matter of fact, when he was finished on the outside, we hired him to redo the master bathroom. We plan to have him do the floors in the entire house in the near future.

Recent Review: This is my deceased grandmother's house that my mother has been living in and remodeling for the last 2 years, to sale. The roof began leaking last year- my parents were away at the time, so we weren't aware until the water damage had already occurred. The man my mother had to come look at the water damage to the floors suggested he call Can-Restore to come and give an estimate for water damage mitigation. My mother's homeowner's insurance got involved, and Keith, the contractor of Can-Restore, suggested her to let him deal with the adjuster directly so that he could "fight" for her to get things repaired since initially it didn't seem the adjuster was willing to pay for much. Due to her trusting nature, she agreed, but now regrets that decision since it seemed to take all of her own negotiation rights away. To be fair, the contractor was definitely able to get the insurance to pay more towards the machines used for water mitigation and most of the necessary repair work. The problem is, the issues they charged to restore were executed very poorly, and no one seems to care or take ownership. Aside from the floors, the contractor was also hired to patch a medium sized hole that opened up beside the kitchen cabinet due to the roof leak, as well as a roof leak near the fireplace. He assured my mother that he had an older gentleman who knew how to match the original fish scale textured pattern on the ceiling and had 40+ years experience in that area. Again, a decision she has regretted. The older gentleman apparently became sick (my mother was not told this until after the fact), and instead someone who seemingly had no experience with this type of ceiling, did the patchwork. The vintage design, and it's integrity my mother was trying to preserve, is ruined, and she'll now have to pay someone to come and redo it in it's entirety. *The paint job to the den and kitchen area is terrible and never finished properly. The paneled walls in the den are cracking in 4 places where joint compound was placed between the grooves to give a smoother appearance. Also, the walls are still rough in many places where it wasn't sanded down correctly. *There are scuffs, scratches and dings all over the walls and door jams throughout the house. *The kitchen cabinets have new scratches and dings from things being moved out of the house and from the floor work. *The aluminum storm door was damaged and will now have to be replaced. *An electrical outlet face plate was broken and some of the brand new electrical outlets were painted instead of being taped over. *All of the brand new door stoppers are missing and will have to be replaced. *There is still a sizeable 2ft long hump in the floor in the den where the water mitigation was largely done. No one said anything or tried to repair it under the insurance claim. *Can-Restore was hired in October 2017 and the work being done carried on until June 2018. *The insurance was billed for things that were never done, never completed and never bought. The man doing the floors was subcontracted out by the contractor (Can-Restore) and my mom was double billed for quarter round, which she had already been told by the floor man was still the preexisting. Then when questioned on why she was being charged if the preexisting quarter round was reused, the floor man said that he had to replace a "few" pieces that he broke. My mother was charged over $300 TWICE for 200 linear ft of quarter round- once on Can-Restore's bill, and then on the floor man's bill for the back bedrooms (one of the bedrooms doesn't even have quarter round) that insurance didn't cover. Can-Restore also billed the insurance over $700 for a third coat of polyurethane on the floors. It says on the paperwork from the insurance company that my mother "requested" a third coat. Not only did she not request a third coat, but a third coat was never even applied. She asked the floor guy and he confirmed it- just stain and 2 coats of polyurethane. There are so many other things I could list- like how the original estimate kept changing and the prices kept being inflated. And for what exactly? The floor is the only thing that turned out to anyone's satisfaction; and even it, upon closer inspection, definitely has other issues aside from the large hump in the den floor. My mother was able to hold out $1628 (out of $15,497) in the final payment towards a new storm door, hiring a new painter and repairing the dings everywhere- also for the third coat of poly that was never applied- and only after much debate with the contractor. I never like to leave bad reviews for anyone. Being business owners ourselves, we know there are times when things just don't go as smoothly as planned. But being in business means making sure a job is done right, and if not, at least being able to admit it. That's how you build customer loyalty. The contractor is very personable and friendly, but the outcome of the work, the lack of communication and lack of accountability have left us no room for a differing opinion. Due to all these things I've listed and more, we highly recommend using discretion when hiring a company to handle your home restoration.

Recent Review: Part of my carport roof had split from a hard rain. These guys seamlessly repaired it and the soffit to look better than it did before the rain. Also they installed a storm door taking great care of the fitting.

ALarry Thompson
Strong winds from recent bad weather had twisted and warped my back storm door. I contacted a handyman from a nearby city and waited several weeks for him to work a small job into his schedule. Forcing the door to open and close for that length of time continued to damage the door. After waiting for weeks, I decided to find someone else to install the door. That same afternoon the local shopper had an advertisement for a local handyman service. I called and reached handyman Larry Thompson. He scheduled installation of the door for the next morning. When I explained the door was stored at my brother's business and I needed a day or two to have the door brought to my home, Mr. Thompson offered to pick up the door for me. Mr. Thompson and my door arrived on time the next morning. The installation was completed and the old door hauled away in no time at all. His degree of knowledge and skill placed him in the category of "not your average handyman" in my book. He has been designated as my official handyman to call for the next repair project!

Mr. King did excellent work. He took out the old doors and frames, cleaned and prepared the area, and installed the new doors. He insulated the open areas of the frame to keep the outside air separate from the inside air. As he installed the doors, he kept checking the frame and door to make sure everything was aligned properly and that the door opened and closed properly before securing the frame completely in place. Once securely in place, he sprayed foam in the open areas of the frame for insulation and then added the inside trim. He then caulked the doors and frames in all the proper places and made everything look perfect. He then had me check out the door installation for my approval. Once I gave my approval of the installation, he knew he did not have to do anything else and vacuumed up the work areas. Note: He worked on one door at a time and completed the process before moving on to the next door. Also, he cleaned up his work area as he worked and did not leave a mess. He allowed me to ask questions while he worked and he answered my questions fully and to my satisfaction. I will definitely use this company in the future for any work needed.

I chose the new door and storm door. Brent picked them up and installed them the same day, finished installing the frame and made a seamless join to the drywall. He painted the door inside and out. He also installed the new lockset and tested them. The work area was left clean and in good order, and all debris and trash from the old door was taken away. I am very pleased with the work.

ACasebier Construction-The Whole House Doctor
I was extremely satisfied with the work done.  The Whole House Doctor was punctual and professional. He worked around my schedule.  When we first met, I told him several things I wanted done in layman's terms, and he was able to accomplish exactly what I wanted.  His patience is remarkable!  As he worked on the various projects, I would mention other things that I was considering doing around the house, and he gave his professional opinion which was helpful in my making the decisions.  His pricing is extremely reasonable.  Other quotes were nowhere near his price.  He realizes that simply because a person lives on an island doesn't mean that the person is made of money. He is an honest worker who believes in doing the best work possible at a fair price.  it is refreshing to know that there are still those types of workers in the area. I have recommended him to friends who have also been extremely satisfied with his performance, workmanship, professionalism, integrity, and pricing.  As a matter of fact, I am considering having an irrigation system installed and guess who'll be doing it?  The Whole House Doctor.

JOB #1-  This job went well.  Mr. Petrow could not find the channel to fit around the windows, but it was agreed that he could clean the old ones and use those.  He did a very good job and within a couple of days, the windows were finished and the storm door was installed.  He even evened out my doorway and painted a little around the storm door.  I was very satisfied with this job. JOB #2- Mr. Petrow did the dry wall in my bedroom and bathroom as specified and in a good time range.  The spackled look was larger than I had anticipated, but he assured me that this was because the original was done when the house was built and with a machine, which at this point would scatter the drywall thoughout the room and on my furniture, so all was OK.  The job looked good overall, but you can tell where it begins and ends, which perhaps could not have been helped.  Mr. Petrow did not paint the bathroom at this point, but said he would do it later as he was to do a few other things for me. JOB #3- Mr. Petrow picked up my gazebo and placed it over the deck.  However, the gazebo was too large for the deck.  Mr. Petrow  had measured and had told me several times that it would fit.  I had questioned him myself several times as the deck looked larger than the deck to me.  So, the gazebo was moved aside (not disassembled, to assemble later, as I had been told would be done and had been charged for).  The footerings were done and later, the gazebo moved for a second time to set onto the footerings.  After this was done, Mr. Petrow let me know that one of the legs of the gazebo was crooked.  He said that this had happened in the disassembly at the store or in moving it to my house.  However,  I felt that this had probably been done while moving the entire gazebo twice at the time of the footerings being placed or maybe in bending it somehow trying to get it to fit on the footerings.  I was a little upset, but did not really voice this much to him.  He did not explain  this to me any further.  I paid him what he said I owed him and he took off for the painting, which he assured me he would do when he returned to do a couple of other projects, which we had already discussed.  Mr. Petrow told me he would be working on a large job for a few months and would call me later.   I HAD HOPED HE WOULD RETURN AND PAINT THE BATHROOM AND DO A FEW OTHER JOBS THAT I HAD MENTIONED TO HIM AND THAT HE GAVE ME THE IMPRESSION THAT HE WOULD CALL ME ABOUT.  ALL IN ALL, MY EXPERIENCE WITH MR. PETROW WAS FAIRLY GOOD.  IT STARTED OUT BEING EVEN BETTER THAN THAT.  HE WAS A VERY PRESENTABLE GENTLEMAN AND HIS WORK WAS VERY GOOD UNTIL THAT  LAST TIME WTH THE GAZEBO.  I DO  NOT THINK THIS WAS ENTIRELY  HIS FAULT, BUT HE NEVER DID LET ME KNOW EXACTLY WHAT HAPPENED TO THE GAZEBO LEG.  I  HAD BOUGHT IT MYSELF AND HAD SEEN IT AFTER ASSEMBLY AT HOME AND THE LEG WAS NOT BENT THEN.  I  WOULD HAVE LIKED TO HAVE HIM DO SOME MORE WORK FOR ME AND HOPE HIS COMPANY IS DOING WELL.  I  WAITED A WHILE TO DO THIS REVIEW, HOPING HE WOULD CALL ME ABOUT DOING THE OTHER JOBS THAT WERE LEFT HANGING WHEN HE FINISHED JOB #3.
