The good: Drywall installation work was fair to good (very good in the skylight). The insulation company he works with (MIFCO) is excellent. Alan seems like a very nice and trustworthy guy when you meet him. He corrected some problems when asked, including repairing "popped" nails. The bad: Provided the simplest, least specific contract possible. Made verbal agreements early on that he denied later, in order to increase his fee. Installed RC-1 channel (for sound proofing) incorrectly, later partially corrected it when asked. Increased his bid after the start of the project "by mistake" (said his daughter did it). Tried to charge extra for soundproofing walls that he initially agreed (verbally) to soundproof. Said DensShield was not specified for the showers, when it was (verbally). Charged the full amount for a small framing/drywall job in the garage even though I did the framing work in my spare time. Sometimes took him a week to return phone calls (yes, I was polite with him throughout the project). His crew sprayed primer in most of the recessed light receptacles, electrical socket boxes, and network/telephone boxes. Used screws and nails to install ceiling drywall, even thought he (verbally) promised to use screws (he didn't mention the nails) Primed walls without first sweeping construction dust off of them. Eager to prime the walls, possibly to hide his crew's tape/mud work. Not so eager to paint them. Overall, I wasn't happy with Alan's Drywall and wished that I had used another contractor who provided a detailed bid without being asked. Of all the contractors I worked with, this is the only one that I felt compelled to write a negative review for. The preceding comments are opinions based upon my personal experiences. They should not be interpreted as historical facts. Some of them would be difficult to prove. My purpose is not to dissuade people from hiring Alan's Drywall, but to encourage them to require a detailed bid. I was lax on that point because the contractor was recommended by someone I trusted. If Alan says in writing that he will do something, I expect that he will.

They did a really good job. They got in, got out. Price was right. They got it done really quickly. They are not "big business people rip off" They are honest. If you don't like what they did, they will come back and fix it. They are hungry for business.

They do amazing work! Prompt, honest, great follow-up, no mess. They resurfaced the ceiling with an updated look - thank you for the suggestion Ray and crew! Hung new drywall in a bedroom along with hanging and repairing water damaged areas through out the entire basement. Hands down the best drywall we have ever seen!

The cottage was crooked, and it now appears square. He is like an artist and has done an incredible job with the drywall in our cottage. They are efficient, and the price is fair. He also primed and painted the ceilings. He always kept me updated throughout the process. He is probably one of the most organized companies I have ever worked with.

Recent Review: I had called Jeremy while still in New Mexico and scheduled the repairs to my roof. When I got to Michigan, they got right to work, in the meantime I asked them to do the ceiling and walls (I have a small house). In between the roofing they put new drywall up on the ceiling and the walls, even replacing some of the wall insulation that was pretty bad. With all of the rain and bad weather, there were a few delays, but we finally got some decent weather and they finished. After the ceiling was textured, and he primed the walls, he even cut in the edges of the ceiling and corners with my paint so all I have to do is roll the rest of the paint on!!!!. They made sure that all of the nails and stuff were picked up before they left.
Recent Review: The workers arrived on time and got right to work. They put up plastic sheeting to cover all the doorways and our kitchen cabinets, stove and refrigerator. They put heavy paper down on the floor and then covered that with tarps. The first day they removed all the old drywall in the kitchen and hallway and took it with them when they left for the day. They only took one short lunch that day. The next day they started installing the new drywall, again taking only a lunch break. The following day they finished installing, sanded it and put the primer on and took a short lunch and picked up some of their equipment. The next day the drywall was painted and left to dry. The final day they installed the trim work and cleared out all of their equipment. There were two guys doing the work. They were extremely professional and polite. They answered any questions that we had and did a wonderful job!!!
