Recent Review: Contacted USI in May of 2015 to give me an estimate on removing, replacing and expanding my deck off the back of my house.   This job was not the easiest.  440 square feet of decking that is 14 feet above the ground.  Additionally, the older deck was built on top of the roof structure to my garage and was covering up more issues.   Had bids from 3 other companies.  USI was about middle of the road for the cost but their approach and clear understanding of what it would take was what won me over. Rob and team came out multiple times and give me ideas, drawings, and verified a number of things.   It was good to see the time and thoughts they put into each portion of it.  This deck is so very well made that I doubt that I will have any issues for the next 25 years at least.  Looking at the neighbors decks, this one is by far the most well architected and built and I am very happy with how it all turned out. Working with Rob (Graves), Ryan, and Ivan was very easy.  The project was "started" in late May 2015, but with the requirement of City of Seattle permits, we had to wait until the end of October to start.  The most frustrating part was the length of time it took to get the permits - a full five months...Finally they were able to start - and they promised a 10 day start to end build.   In Oct/November we had some very bad weather days, but true to their word in under 10 days, the deck was done.  A few more return trips for the glass railing (had frosted glass put in on the sides that took an extra week or so to make, and then a few follow up visits for to check on lighting and leaks in the garage (where the roof had to be removed and USI put in one of their waterproof solutions.    Bottom line is that it is a huge improvement over the old deck and even the roof/ceiling in the garage.  I am extremely happy and would highly recommend Rob, Ryan, Ivan and the entire team.

Recent Review: We didn't get started very well. I was working with the contractor who did the walls and he was going to oversee having the railings done also. The idea was that the wall contractor would pay close attention to what was required for the railings since he was responsible for them and being paid an administrative fee. For the most part, he did a good job on the walls, but seemed to flounder around in making arrangements for the railings. Since he still didn't have arrangements made for the railings when the walls were done I took that responsibility away from him and proceeded on my own. I had the owner of Skips, Rick Jenkins come out and go over the whole project and quote it. I also had another contractor who was recommended come out. He turned out to be overbooked and eventually declined to quote. I contacted a neighbor who had Skips do his railings. He gave them a good recommendation. Based on the good recommendation and what seemed to be reasonable pricing I went ahead with Skips. The railings are attached to the top caps of the walls. The top caps are glued to the blocks below them. The glue job is very critical! A few days after the walls had been completed and the glue had a chance to set up I checked and found about a third of the caps were not glued down. I contacted the wall contractor and he came out and redid the glue job. Just in case, I bought a tube of the glue and had it available to Skips if they encountered a loose cap. Sure enough, they found one loose cap and glued down so there was no delay in doing the railings.

Recent Review: We've used Handyman Connection multiple times for carpentry work, to replace siding, to repair a fence, to build a handrail, and others.  In every single case, the work they've done has been of the highest quality.  (My husband is a painting contractor, and he has high standards!).  They're on time, professional and they know what they're doing.  Highly recommended!

Recent Review:  The sub contractor chosen by Above All Contracting did an absolutely excellent job and went well beyond our expectations.  The crew under the direction of their foreman worked quickly and professionally, performing each step of the work to the highest standard of perfection.  We could not be more delighted with the quality of the work, the attention to detail and the speed with which the team worked.  We needed to place our home on the market for sale within a certain deadline and this team completed the job in a very efficient manner. Our home's appearance and curb appeal was significantly improved and it ended up selling within two days. I cannot say enough positives about this company and the subs that they sent to our home. We have had a number of different contractors work on our home in the past and there is no comparison in terms of the quality and efficiency of this team and also their attitude and professionalism on the job.

Handrails were custom made so it took about 5-6 weeks between ordering and installation. The representative was friendly and professional and seemed to know what options would look best and be appropriate for our situation. Installation was done in less than a day. Looks good. Nothing mis-measured. No problems.

Needed old back porch steps replaced with new handrail and painted. Mitch was very friendly, courteous and polite. He finished the rebuild in a timely manner and cleaned up after him self. You can tell by his quality of work that he believes in measure twice and cut once. We would trust him on any other carpentry job we needed done.

The railings Skip's installed four years ago have all lasted well. They use powder coated aluminum, which is a good value. They can do a lot of custom work with it. That why I used them, and because I have noticed that the "subs" my builder uses (Ted Miller) have generally been very good for price, follow-up and quality. By this I assume the price was good, don't really know. I do know the materials are better than the ones at the Big-box stores. On the other hand they are not especially organized. During the housing boom, I twice tried to get them to bid this. So with the recession, and all other backyard projects completed, I went after that gate again. Its a small job, but it needs 2 guys - so I understand its often hard to get these things done. I had looked at an iron gate, big bucks. This time I got a bid, and on it was on time, and they had a good suggestion and spent quite a while going over options. Getting them to complete it took some time, and many times they didn't show when expected. I called to office and they seemed to not have the information centralized. After that first call, everyone knew who I was and what the job was. I work from home, so it's no big deal. 2 years earlier this would have been unacceptable, I would have called it off or took a pill or something. It turned out they didn't know they were out of stock on the right metal. Apparently materials are tight, to make it harder on them. When the arrived they forgot a part and had to come back yet one more time. BUT, it came out looking pretty good. Better than I expected. It looks strong too. Clean-up wasn't perfect, but good enough. No plants damaged or other problems. Once again, they spent quite a while discussing the issue of which way the hinges go. I think he (Dave) knew I had something wrong with my plan and was being polite. That turned out to be important, I could have made a big mistake with the way the gate opened. So I have to say the service itself was very good - they definitely wanted to satisfy me. I have a sturdy little two leafed gate, a pretty good looking gate, that is a custom solution to a problem that cost less than half or a third of what wrought iron would cost. But if I was planning a wedding, We'd give them a long lead time.

ACore Construction
I hired Core Construction to replace shattered glass railings on two large decks. In the process he discovered that on corner of the two decks was four inches lower than the rest of the deck due to a rotting beam. Core Construction jacked up both decks [one above the other] replaced the rotted beam, poured new footings, replaced corner posts, painted all replaced lumber, and then replaced the glass panel railings with cable railings.  Their work was absolutely first class, they were reliable, always on site on time, and they cleaned up their mess and debris at the end of each day.  I was totally pleased with the work, their work ethic, and professionalism.  I would strongly recommend Core Construction for any work on a home.  Additionally, I watched them reroof my neighbor's house, paint the house and add rock wall siding to the lower level.  It all looked great.  Stacey Carlson, owner of Core Construction, is a man of his word and his is integrity beyond reproach.

This contractor was highly recommended for projects he had done for high level executives at my workplace. I trusted him due to his reputation, but unfortunately, that was a big mistake. I am a single mom with a "tween" daughter at home, and I especially needed a contractor I could trust to be at my home while I worked. Unfortunately, without the oversight of the designers, architects, and others that were involved in the high dollar executive remodels, I ended up with shoddy workmanship, cheap materials, and many regrets for using this contractor. The kitchen remodel does look good, even though materials used were the least expensive from the Home Depot shelves. The gate on the new fence split the first time I tried to open it. Many areas were sloppily painted, and require another coat (I requested he do this, but he would not). I was left with construction debris in my garage and thrown behind bushes in my yard. Landscaping & areas of the lawn were destroyed. I attempted to resolve things I was unhappy with while the job was ongoing, but I was met with arguments, excuses, and then half hearted attempts to correct the problems. He was moody, rude, and argumentative at times. The security system salesman who was attempting to schedule the install remarked that he had never been spoken to so rudely by a contractor before. This contractor insisted on progress payments for work that was not complete, and I finally had to refuse further payments until I saw progress. The work was then hastily and poorly done. He was rarely at the job site for days at a time. He left his teenage son and his son's friend with a list of things to do each day. Then he came back to pick them up just before I came home. One day I discovered my computer full of p**********, with my young daughter in the house who regularly uses it. Unsupervised teens were obviously not the workforce that I had contracted to pay $30k for. I have recently been contacted by a woman who wanted to know if this contractor was living with me. He told her that we had a romantic relationship, and that he needed to borrow several thousand dollars from her to complete my remodel and end the relationship. He then dropped out of sight, and she was looking for him. I am extremely angry that he used my name and reputation to con this woman, and can only wonder if he has done this to others who haven't figured out a way to contact me yet. I have saved for this remodel for years, and it was to be a dream come true for me. Instead I'm left to worry about shortcuts and sloppy work that he may have done in areas that I can't see (wiring, plumbing, insulation, etc.) I will now need to hire another contractor to make everything right, and to put my mind at ease, because I do not want this one back in my home.
