Recent Review: Tim did a great job.  He was very easy to work with and provided us with several ideas that improved the project.  He was on time and on budget. Throughout the project he would explain the details of the work to ensure we were happy with the results. The work included framing walls, wiring, drywall, recessed lighting, doors and trim work.  Tim was willing to let us do some of the work to keep the cost down which was great.  I am sure we will be using him for our next project.

Recent Review: All Star was very responsive and open to our ideas from the beginning even though this was our first remodeling project. They worked with us on the price and details in order to make the process as stress free as possible. They truly acted like they wanted our business by communicating often in the beginning. The workers were punctual and were able start right away. We are both night shift workers and All Star was respectful of our schedule and mess concerns so they used the daylight windows in the basement to go in and out with materials. The project started so quickly that some of the details got overlooked and misinterpreted. There were adjustments that we would have liked to have seen for the layout plan but by the time the framing went up it was too late. There was miscommunication between the owner and the salesman about what was getting and quot;finishedand quot; and what was not. Dan, the owner listened to our concerns during/after the process and made it right without nickel and diming us. In fact the estimate they gave us in the beginning was the exact price we were charged and quot;out the doorand quot; at the end. Overall it was a good, quick and nearly painless experience with a few minor hiccups. The biggest complaints we had stemmed from the salesman, however I don't believe that is an issue anymore.

Recent Review: We could have not asked for more - James Townsend was absolutely terrific. His work was of the highest quality by a true professional. We could not recommend him more highly. He was responsive and honest. HIs price was reasonable and did not exceed his estimate. We highly recommend him to you as well as any of our friends. We definitely would ask for his services again if the need arises. James is a true handyman and superb painter - two thumbs up.

Recent Review: When we purchased the house we knew that the previous owners had problems. They had hired another company to waterproof the basement. We moved in October and everything was fine. When we had Spring thaw we ended up with three corners of the basement wet, really wet. Called the original company which honored the previous owners contract and "fixed the problem." Well, it didn't work. For the next year we had wet corners and repairs which required time-off from my job. It got so bad that we had water alarms in the basement which would contact my cellphone so we could get home and dry the basement (finished basement with carpet). We finally gave up and call EverDry to the rescue. They reviewed our problem and developed a system just for us, not some cookie cutter system. And it worked!!!! 10 years later and we haven't had any water in the basement. I don't even need to check it after a heavy rain because I know it is ok. No more water alarms or phone calls from a wet basement.

Recent Review: I chose Kalamazoo Handymen Services mainly due to the excellent communication Mark showed from the very beginning. It gave me the confidence that he not only listens to his customers, but also would respond to email, phone, and text messages in a timely manner. This is a rare quality from not only a handyman, but also most contractors I have worked with in the past. They were hired to install base trim, chair rail, and crown molding, as well as 2 bifold doors and a half wall cap which was just over 1000 square feet worth in a finished basement. He sub'd out the crown and the painting which I was perfectly OK with, and informed me of his decision to do so ahead of time while providing a quote for the entire project. Mark and Ryan showed up early every day and worked between 6-8 hours each day until the job was finished. The entire project took about 2 weeks, give or take. If they had any questions or had any issues, he was quick to get in touch with me. Alternatively, they were both very patient with me and all of the questions/changes I had thrown at them. Would highly recommend and I will most likely be in contact with Kalamazoo Handymen Services down the road for more work! Thanks again Mark and Ryan. The finished product looks great!

All of the work performed needed to be redone by a builder who knew what he was doing. Nothing was done to code. The basement wall framing and egress window framing was not to code nor was the electrical or plumbing performed on my house. I was required to remove EVERYTHING he and his crew installed. To top it off the exterior paint job put on my garage peeled so that was not even correct. Thousands of dollars down the drain.

It was a fairly big project. Water had gotten behind the walls in a finished basement room due to various factors--water above in an attached garage, a faulty downspout, and so forth. There was mold in some of the walls, especially in the closet and in a closet in the room next door. The one part that was kind of a pain was the mold remediation, because we had to be out of the house all day, but Allstar and the mold remediation specialist worked with us to keep it to just one day. The workmen were hard-working, humorous, and prompt. At one point we had to revise the job a bit and ask them to tear off the furring strips on those walls to make sure the waterproofing was done behind them, in case there were cracks in the cinder blocks that ran behind the furring strips. Steve (who was overseeing the project) okayed doing that at the quoted price even though the wording in the contract on that point was ambiguous. They sent out a finishing man to do all the extra little items at the end (trim pieces in the closet corners, etc.) according to a list we gave them. And finally, when a leak at the window in the basement room showed up during a rainstorm immediately after the project was done, which may not have been related to the job (the remodeling may have revealed a leak that was quietly going on without our knowledge before) the owner, Dan Tyler, came over himself and diagnosed the outside source of the leak and caulked it for us at no extra charge. We take all our work of this kind to Allstar. They aren't the cheapest contractors in town, but they stand by their work, and as a homeowner, I find that is most important.
