Recent Review: When I have a large job and need a new contractor, I always test them with a small job to see how things go. L&H Construction (Lee Harper) proved himself on a chain link fence job last fall. He paid attention to construction details, did things on time, and most importantly communicated constantly with me. My real job was spring $12K landscaping project on one of my income properties near Anschutz medical center. My big problem? I don?t live in Denver and would not be able to supervise the job. I needed someone I could trust completely. Lee called me twice per month over the winter to be sure things were scheduled correctly (and took care of snow removal). The concrete work needed to be done at the correct temperatures, and ultimately everything else (tree removal, grading, rock, permits, etc.) needed to be done so the turf could be installed before watering restrictions kicked in. Not only that, I was sending thousands of dollars for work that I could not see being done. Trust was everything? for both of us. In the end, everything was done perfectly at the estimated cost. Inspections by the City of Aurora passed with flying colors. In fact, this job was done so well, I joined Angie?s just so I could write this review. Like every contractor in Denver, Lee needs the work badly (although he would never say so). If you need a talented, responsive and completely honest contractor to handle your residential construction job? this is your guy. If you hire Lee, be prepared to use the telephone because although he amazing work, he is old-school talent and doesn't do email.

Recent Review: We purchased a home in 2010 that had neglected sprinkler system. We contacted Ruhlands as they had done some work through the previous owner and we assumed was familiar with the system. Provided great service, but had to return often to complete detailed requests. Through this contact, we contracted them to do a major foundation landscape and rear elevated paver patio which was completed in fall of 2011, with the patio sealant postponed. According to Brett, the pavers needed to have some "wear time" before sealing which is consistent with other landscapers. Brett returned in 2012 and applied the sealant. I was skeptical with the application as he used a bug sprayer to mist it on, then spread it thinner with a paint roller. Not wanting to question the "professional", I questioned the longevity of the sealer and long term maintenance. Brett assured me that routine rinsing and a 3 to 4 year scrubbing would be all that was needed. Immediately in the spring of 2013 problems surfaced. The joint between the paver bed and outer wall was showing erosion. The pavers were losing color and not beading water. Brett returned and patched the paver joints and assured me he would look into the sealer issue. From that point on it became a phone text exchange. The end text, which I still have saved, was that I rescrub and reseal the patio myself. Needless to say, last fall I hired another service for my sprinkler and lawn care services. Today, I tried to scrub the patio to reseal. It is very apparent that no sealer ever existed on the pavers. They are stained with every element an outdoor patio is exposed to. The joints between the paver deck and outer wall have collapsed. Brett's crew did a great job. We spent $8000. And Brett...finished off the entire project personally by skimping $$$ on the one material that would preserve it all...sealer. His entire approach was to save a few bucks. Now, I am waiting on an estimate from a real professional to repair and preserve what has been invested in this patio. It will need a complete chemical rewash and reseal. The new contractors policy on paver patios is to spray the sealer liberally, and return to check absorption. Then, return annually for several years to clean and reseal to insure preservation. WHAT a concept! If you want a warm fuzzy feeling you're being taken care of, Ruhlands is your place. If you want details followed closely and/or accountability for the work done...go elsewhere. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Update 3/2015. Shortly after posting this original review, even the landscaping contractor I spoke with would not return my calls. I took it upon myself to purchase a specialized attachment for my pressure washer for $50. The mud that came out of this patio after 1 year was unbelievable. I purchased 3 gallons of sealer from Lowes and liberally sprayed it on. It soaked it up like a sponge. The seams between the pavers and retaining wall were repaired by my wife and I. We bought a 50 pound can of Polymer Sand and used 2/3 of it to fill the just the seam. The remainder + will be used this spring to seal the joint between the patio and exterior house wall, which was specifically requested on installation. This all should have been done when the patio was built. If I can figure it out and complete, any professional should have included it in the installation.
