Recent Review: John was timely in getting back to us with an estimate (which was based on an hourly rate).  His quote came in under another carpenter and we decided to give him a try.  He set the date and arrived on time.  He completed the work within the time estimate.  The work was nicely done and he kept everhtying neat and tidy.  We would definitely call him for other work in the future.

Recent Review: I described majority of it in the first question.  Overall we're very pleased with AR Construction with their Prices being low, Quality is definitely there, and what we most appreciated was their willingness to help us tackle ALL projects.   They gave advice and suggestions even though it might not have been their area.  They gave us several referrals for carpeting, electrical, shopping for cabinets, bathroom vanities, etc.   Very open to share their contacts to help us save money.   Also  took the time to help us understand their pricing and charged us only for labor costs.  We covered materials in which they recommended us certain stores for certain items and even had some of their contacts come out and meet us and price things for us.  One final strong positive for us was that Rodney was very open with us that we felt comfortable to share with him some of our critiques which he listened to and we saw changes immediately. Only critiques we had was cleanliness of his crew while working and after leaving the job site.  This property wasn't occupied but we still felt comfortable with bringing this up with Rodney.  Since we decided on purchasing materials we also found that along the way we were going to the store alot.  Our only other critique and it was more an observation to help improve our working relationship for future jobs  with Rodney was that we organize ourselves better and plan better ahead to reduce the number of trips to the store, getting supplies ahead of time so it doesn't slow down work, and planning better together so we are all on the same page in terms of tasks we both need to do throughout the week so that things don't become last minute.

It was the worst experience you could imagine. When they re plumbed the house they did not flush the lines. As a result we had 85 years of old galvanized pipe debris end up in our faucets, water heater, shower etc. necessitating numerous call backs to repair their work. To top it off when they installed the new plumbing in the new bathroom the rookie plumber failed to cap the hot water line. They turned it on and it ran full bore in the crawl space for four hours before the general contractor detected it! The contractor had to tear out the newly installed vanity and sinks and cut a hole in the floor to get to the defective plumbing and fix it. Oh and by the way the plumbers cracked one of the sinks while removing it. In addition, they forgot to install the hand held shower when installing the overhead shower. This resulted in tearing out the drywall behind the shower to retrofit the hand held shower plumbing. Unbelievable poor quality work in every phase of the job.

Everything went well and Doug and his assistant Brian were outstanding. Would for sure recommend him and hope to contract him for another project soon.

Up front, I should mention that this remodeling was done as part of the first home purchase for my spouse and me.  We shopped for materials during a time when we were living in separate cities and working out the details of a move, job changes, etc.  Neither of us had previously lived in a home that was remodeled to this extent, which may have contributed to some confusion as to responsibilities and time requirements on our end. All estimating work and general project management was done by Bob Popovich, the owner of Steel City. In addition, our mortgage company took excessively long to process final payment to the contractor, which unnecessarily added stress and frustration to the process.   This is a very general summary without all of the details of each issue encountered. The good:   Workers did a great job creating a new doorway and installing a door.  The stain on the new door & trim match the existing woodwork well. Steel City?s workers were very friendly. The workers showed up on time every day they were scheduled to be at my home. Materials offered directly by Steel City are good.  The laminate flooring, bathroom exhaust fan, kitchen cabinetry, and tub surround look nice and seem to be holding up fine (6-ish months later). Steel City was willing to accommodate our desire to handle painting by ourselves, allowing us to maximize our budget. They were flexible in coming to the house twice on weekends to provide estimates and take measurements early in the process. Contractor was willing to work with us to use vendors of our choice, including making trips to IKEA, Sears Outlet, and lighting stores more than 30 miles away.  They allowed us to include appliance purchases in our mortgage renovation loan as part of their estimate. In the one instance where we have required work covered under warranty after the contractor received final payment, Steel City effectively dealt with the issue. In general, everything looks good.  Friends & family compliment the looks.   The bad: Dishonesty and half-truths about things that did not go as planned/previously discussed during the job. It was difficult to get clean-up work done and we did most of it ourselves every day after the workers left. Poor communication about scheduling & time lines.  Very poor communication Steel City's office, Steel City's workers, and us about problems. Various small things were done incorrectly, initially skipped, or never resolved (uneven cabinet alignment, baseboard installation/re-installation & alignment, flooring installation, moving electric outlets prior to backsplash installation, sealing stone backsplash, touching up scratches & dings on cabinets after installation, etc).  All of these things added together are a problem for us. In one bathroom, the flange was cracked at some point during removal of the old toilet or installation of new toilets, resulting in a leak that affected the floor and basement below.  The contractor made four attempts to reinstall the toilet before a plumber was finally called in to diagnose and fix this problem (the option of a plumber was refused after the second attempt). Wall patching/dry wall work was not done well the first time, requiring return visits and resulted in painting delays. I was left with the responsibility of letting third party contractors into the house and explaining to these people what work was required (plumbers, electricians, & tile installer). Our garage was used to store waste materials; Steel City let this material pile up and removed all at once rather than clearing waste each day. When items were purchased ahead of time, they were stored at our home (often for weeks) rather than at the contractor?s facility. Based on order date information provided by Lowe?s, there was a delay of more than a week between when we selected our bathroom vanity when it was actually ordered.  This resulted in a trip charge because the granite installer had to make a second trip to the house to measure for the vanity top. Various items that were part of the original estimate were estimated at the lowest price (also lowest end) that one would find in big box stores and these ultimately came in over budget (lighting, vanities/tops/faucets, back splash material, cabinet handles, etc.)  Some fabrication & installation costs were not included in the initial estimate (granite & backsplash). We were asked to submit a payment request and sign that the job was complete at a point when there were unresolved issues.  We had to request that Bob walk through with us to go over a list of items that needed to be completed. Water hook-up for the refrigerator was initially tapped into the hot water line.  When this was fixed, a ceiling tile in the basement was broken with no offer to attempt to fix it. Parts to one bathroom vanity were lost.  A new sink had to be purchased to get the parts and doing so was made out to be a favor to us.  We did not open the box or assemble the sink, thus we were not responsible for keeping track of whether the parts were in the box originally and what might have happened to them. Had we known going into this that Steel City had few suggestions on where to look at tile, lighting, trim, and other fixtures other than going into the big box stores, we may have selected another contractor that had these items in his showroom.   Ultimately, I suppose the job could have gone worse.  We do not have any horror or disaster stories. The workers were professional and trustworthy.  As problems popped up during the remodel, it quickly became a "when it rains it pours? situation.  Usually in that happens one would take care to stop the rain as soon as possible.  Had responsibility been taken for mistakes, had apologies been offered, and problems addressed proactively, I would have walked away from this process with a better feeling about the contractor.  That is unfortunately not the case.
