What we liked...1. Prices for all items were fair and below other quotes. We chose Fiveash Renovations based on the glowing reviews on Angies list and their fair price quotes. 2. Derrick was punctual, polite and acted professionally throughout the entire project, which took about two weeks. 3. The stucco band repair, interior paint job and gutters look good. 4. Derrick, was polite in answering all of my questions, which I value and appreciate. What we did not like...1. While Derrick himself was very professional, the men he hired to complete our very large project did not act very professionally. They smoked cigarettes near open doors and windows to our house and they disposed of the buds in a trash can located inside our garage. The workers parked in front of mailboxes after being asked not to block them. One worker used my neighbors water spigot and water supply without permission, which angered my neighbor. 2. The workers were not detail oriented when it came to cleaning up after their job was completed. There was paint splatter on toilets, sinks and other fixtures (luckily, with some work I was able to remove most of it). They did take care to cover fixtures, and I understand splatter happens, but it should be cleaned up by the professional. Construction dust was apparent on some of the newly painted walls and non painted cabinets. I asked them to leave any extra paint for me to use for touchups later, which they did, but they left two open paint cans in my garage, as well as some empty cans of paint. 3. They seemed more concerned with getting the job done quickly rather than getting the job done to the owners satisfaction. Contractors I have used in the past walked through the end product with me to make sure I was satisfied, which did not happen here. Part of the reason for this, I feel is they underestimated the length of time this job would take. 4. Tops of doors were not painted. I guess they thought since they weren't normally seen that they did not need to be painted. 5. They splattered white stucco on our exterior, decorative, red lava rock that covers our plant beds. They did not even attempt to cover the decorative rock before repairing the stucco on our house. The white has not washed off the rocks, and now we have to remove and replace a large portion of our decorative rock because it looks horrible! I understand if they feel it is not their job to move the decorative rocks to a safe location or cover them, but they should have given me the option to do so in that case. Leaving a hideous mess for me to deal with is very unprofessional. 6. Lastly, the main reason why I am dissatisfied and why I would not hire this company again is that I do not trust this contractor to be honest on his limitations. One plumbing item from our home inspection was not up to code and we asked them to fix it and make it up to code. Now, I do not know what the codes are here, which is why I hired a professional for this job. So, you can imagine my surprise when the contractor "fixed" this item then asked me if that was what I wanted done. Uh...how am I suppose to know if something is up to code or not? That is your job! So, I called my home inspector back out and asked him if it was now up to code...which it was not. The contractor actually made it worse. So, now we will have to hire a plumber to come out and make this repair truly up to code. If Fiveash Renovations did not know what the plumbing codes are, he needed to be honest with me about that rather than just winging it so he could get more money. For this reason alone, I would not rehire this company.
