Recent Review: They came on time for the estimate and provided good recommendations and ideas. We scheduled the date of service for the next week.  They did not show up on the day they scheduled - when I called I was told I had the date wrong.  They came on the "new" date - when I talked to the serviceman, he said the scheduler did change the appointment but apparently failed to call me to tell me about the change.    The work performed was done satisfactorily, but he did not clean up the debris after he was done.

Recent Review: Preparations for the project were well laid out and the workers were very prompt and courteous. Demolition went well and Precision Countertops did an amazing job of installing the new countertops. The trim around the window and doorways as well as the tile work and installation of the new storm door were beautifully executed. The repair of the wall that was no longer tiled and the cleanup of the caulk around the new sink and sink drain were the only areas that were disappointing.

The overall experience was not at all what I would have expected from a licensed contractor (he drank 16 oz beers stashed in his truck), and it was unpleasant.  He talked me out of my materials choices, which I provided and made multiple runs to Home Depot and Lowe's for items he needed/didn't have.  Despite me getting down on all fours with a putty knife and scraping vinyl glue residue, he insisted on laying the floor over the still lumpy top surface, saying I "wouldn't notice at all".  Needless to say, I notice it every single day and it makes me sick that I spent so much money on such shoddy work.   The kitchen linoleum: I don't know if he was inebriated but he mis-cut totally the nearly $200 sheet of vinyl I'd purchased. There are gaps where the old vinyl shows through in front of the dishwasher and in the pantry.  At the entry to the kitchen, he made a huge glaring mis-cut - coming up 8.5 inches short of the door jamb (!) - which necessitated him making a sloppy, glued-in piecework in a very visible area.  I'd helped him move the refrigerator out into the dining room so he could work, and when it came time to push it back, I had a dolly at the ready but he insisted on just jamming it across the laminate floor, making multiple gouges and scrape marks!  The floor wasn't glued down except in a few points along the sides (he said it wasn't necessary) so whenever I vacuum, the entire floor is sucked up and I have to flop it back down repeatedly. (See photos) The kitchen trim molding:  I had new trim, and as he removed each piece of the old trim, I labeled it, took it outside, pulled the nails, and set it aside for use as a template in hopes to make for easy cutting of the new.  He acted angry that I didn't want to just put the (20+ year old trim molding) back down.  When he did install it, I noticed later there were innumerable gaps and areas where he'd used just one nail to secure an entire length of trim board. The downstairs bath area:  I'd recently pulled the old carpet from this bedroom myself, pull all the tack strips, and had hired someone to lay laminate. There were some areas along the floor trim board area where the plaster was pulled loose and I'd asked  Mike to smooth over the plaster so there'd be no gaps when the trim board was replaced.  Again, I labeled the old trim board pieces, pulled the nails, and stood there, handing him the new trim and old pieces to measure and fit.  Basically, he did an incredibly sloppy job of smoothing Spackle as evidenced by the photos I've attached.  I'm not that fussy, but this is a ridiculously poor job. The bath entry:  This is an approximately 3 x 5 foot area where a pedestal sink is situated, just outside the bathroom. I had wanted tile but Mike told me that was too much work and to just get panels in laminate as this would be easier for him to cut and install. I did find something at Home Depot that seemed to work and purchased that and the laminate trim board to tie the flooring and the newly floored area together.  As the laminate had raised the floor, there was a significant dip to the 'tiled' area and we discussed this, with Mike saying he would use the extra flooring to 'bring the two floors level'.  Unfortunately, this isn't what he did and again, as evidenced by the photos, there's just a thick line of caulk between the trim molding and the lower floor. He told me not to step on the trim for a day or two but that it should hold "just fine".  This isn't what happened as the first time a guest stepped on the side of the trim board, it snapped.  In one photo I've taken an envelope to show how much of a gap there is, and that the caulking obviously didn't extend fully.  Incidentally, he made a point of telling me what type of caulking to purchase, at $6 per tube, and I noticed he took all of it with him upon leaving. The pedestal sink has a huge amount of sloppy grout he installed.   This was an extremely disappointing experience. I felt I did everything I could to make his job easier as he was an elderly man, from pulling the kitchen linoleum and scraping glue residue, to pulling nails from the trim boards, to making multiple runs to the hardware store, to dragging my dolly up the stairs only to have him eschew using it and just slam the refrigerator across the floor (installed the year before).  It makes me sick to walk on the lumpy kitchen floor every morning, thinking how I stupidly spent my hard-earned money on such shoddy workmanship.   I realize the odds are remote that anyone will stumble across Mike Wall, of Wall To Wall Handyman, but if I can possibly spare someone the regret I've personally experienced, this review will have been worthwhile.

My experience with Capstone Construction was one of the worst experiences that I have had with any service industry company - ever. Capstone Construction was hired to construct an approximately 350 sf, $105,000 addition to my home; the addition was required to make my house more accessible for my wife who has several physical disabilities and suffers from the effects of stage 4 cancer and the treatments. I was conned into what ended up being a very expensive scam; by the time Capstone Construction left the job there was an estimated $150,000 worth of defects in the new construction and damage to my existing home and property. I was lied to by Capstone Construction from the beginning, some of the lies were: 1. They agreed that the construction would be completed in approximately 2 ½ month. It took nearly 6 months. 2. They agreed that the job supervisor would be on site every day to verify that the work was being constructed properly and per the construction documents. The job supervisor did not inspect the work; If the job supervisor did show up he only showed once or twice a week for about 15 minutes; the job supervisor was unable to read the construction documents or understand construction very well; if he was confronted with a construction error he would just come up with a line of B.S. and not address the issue. 3. Capstone Construction only uses top quality employees and licensed subcontractors. 7 out of the 18 subcontractors were not licensed even though Capstone put into writing that all their subcontractors are licensed and bonded; a good portion of the employees and subcontractors could not read English or understand construction documents, most were just basically semiskilled handymen; literally every trade produced defective work – a sampling of some of the defects are: the excavator damaged the underground plumbing even after I had all the utilities located; exposed rebar in the foundation; sloppy concrete finish work on both the interior and exterior slabs and walls; improper foundation work that is not constructed per the construction documents; framing that does not align from floor to floor; framing that was critical to be framed plumb and square that was not framed plumb and square at all; the roof was framed at the wrong roof slope; the wrong windows were installed and windows were installed at the wrong height; all of the hardwood, LVT flooring, and underlayment was installed improperly which voids any warrantees; all the door were damaged or installed improperly; improper plumbing installation that diminished any usable water flow to the exterior hose connection; light switches mounted about 12” to low; improper HVAC ducting; improper exterior siding and trim installation; incorrect roof flashing; improper roofing installation that allows the roof to leak substantially when it rains; leaking rain gutters; improper attic ventilation; poor quality interior trim work; unequal rod iron baluster spacing at the interior guardrail; damage to existing tile and carpet flooring throughout; incomplete painting on the interior and exterior; substantial amount of paint on the new vinyl window frames; broke three interior stairs; and damaged two skylights. None of these or any of the many other item were corrected before Capstone and their subcontractors left the job. 4. It was agreed that Capstone Construction would completely seal off the existing house from the construction area during demolition and construction. Capstone Construction failed to seal of the existing house which resulted in the entire existing house and all of its contents being covered in an extremely thick layer of dust, this happen repeatedly. In addition there was not any winter protection provided to the exposed living spaces during the entire winter. 5. It was understood by Capstone Construction that Capstone Construction was being hired to be the General Contractor because I did not have any time to devote to being my own contractor due to my heavy work load at my job as an Architect, and because of the time commitment required to assisting my wife. I ended up spending well over 100 hours of my time doing Capstone Constructions job attempting to make sure that the construction moved along and was somewhat conforming to the construction documents. 6. I was conned into hiring Capstone Construction when they told me that they are fast and that they would give my job extra attention because of my wife’s health and her urgency to have the accessibility improvements completed as soon as possible. Capstone Construction was extremely unresponsive to any sense of urgency when it came to meeting the agreed on completion schedule or to my wife’s needs; in fact just the opposite, they ended up scamming us. I held back a portion of the contract funds owed while I attempted several times to work with Capstone Construction on compensating me for all the defects and damages; we agreed to mediate a settlement on compensation in good faith, however Capstone Construction decided to blackmail me into settling into being compensated for pennies on the dollar for the defects and damages, or they would take me and my wife to court if I attempted to settle for more, they were fully aware that we did not have the time or the money to fight them in court. So in conclusion, if you don’t want to be scammed and end up with substantial defective construction like we did, I would recommend that you not even consider Capstone Construction.
