They did not color match my wall well and it looked like my wall has an infection. They tried to repair, but it still does not look great. If I would have known they had trouble matching colors I would have sat out there and picked the brick to replace in the wall.

Mike C showed up on Friday and got started right away on the electrical work. After much struggle (broken drill bit, problems running the wire) and cutting a hole in the family room wall, he called HC to get an electrician to come out. This was scheduled for Monday. Mike did have a helper who did the staining of the windows. Unfortunately the bay window turned out badly due to the window manufacture, not anything Mike or his helper did. Mike was real helpful in trying to figure out how to make it look nice but to no avail. Andersen Windows did come out to the house and look at the problem and determine it was their problem and will replace the seat and ceiling of the bay. The electrician, Lee, was able to do the electrical work in quick fashion. This resulted in an extra charge from the original quote. He did an excellent job! Mike finished varnishing the windows on Monday and completed drywalling the hole in the family room wall on Tuesday. Did a nice job cleaning up. Overall, I'm glad the work is done. The windows - after looking at them closer, the staining and varnishing could be better; I will be touching up the varnish (that is why I gave the 'B' in quality). I would hire Handyman Connection for other projects if the need arises.

I hired King Scapes to replace a very large retaining wall on my property adjacent to public sidewalk and alley. They did a fantastic job. All of the staff were diligent, responsible and communicated with me every step of the way. The on site project supervisor, Joe was very dedicated to completing a quality project. I would recommend King Scapes highly.

EXCELLENT SERVICE. ONLY COMPLAINT IS THAT THE WALL ISN'T LINED UP PERFECTLY WITH THE EXISTING WALL BUT IS ACCEPTABLE. MAY WORK A LITTLE TOO FAST.

Foundation totally gone. Schumm cleaned area down to the footings and rebuilt the foundation. Schumm also repaired a retaining wall and parge coated the wall. I am very happy with the quality of the work and the finished look of the retaining wall.

STEVE WAS ON TIME, POLITE, AND RESPONSIVE. HE DIRECTED ME TO OTHER ADDRESSES WHERE HE DID ROCK WALLS. I LOOKED AT THEM AND LIKED THEM VERY MUCH, BUT IN THE END DECIDED AGAINST A ROCK WALL AND WENT WITH SOMEONE ELSE. I JUST THOUGHT OF HIM AS A ROCK WALL GUY AND FORGOT HE DOES ALL SORTS OF WALLS. IF I DID IT OVER AGAIN I WOULD HAVE GOTTEN A QUOTE FROM HIM ON A RETAINING WALL SYSTEM. I LIVE IN ST PAUL AND HE WAS OK DOING THE WORK IN ST. PAUL. HE HAS DONE A LOT OF WORK IN SAVAGE.

I have hired Jesse for several jobs over past couple years, hes always on time, friendly and honest about the work needing to be done to get the result I want, as well as being knowledgeable about possible hidden costs that may come up over the course of a project. I had gotten cheaper bids on some of the earlier projects but I learned a few years ago you get what you pay for and any issues or concerns I had on a project with Jesse he was quick to address them to my satisfaction. He's the first call I make for projects.

AAbsolute Masonry LLC
Absolute Masonry came out to assess the job on the brick wall. There was spalling, and he helped me come up with a solution to my problem. A quote came shortly after, then the crew came out to take care of the Masonry job. Absolutes Crew did an exceptional job. They were efficient, maintained a professional atmosphere, and workmanship was off the chart. I would highly recommend Absolute Masonry, and will be using their services again for future projects. You will be pleased working with them. I will have to post pictures to the job later, as it is night time as I write this review.
Recent Review: I don't think they could have improved on anything. They were very knowledgeable, professional, and did more than I even asked for. When they straightened out the wall it was above and beyond.
Recent Review: This was a large project that took place in several stages over about six months. The quality of all work was excellent. Bernie was very accommodating for in process design changes. For instance, the workroom renovation was not even included in the original plans and the hallway layout and closet placement were changed after seeing how the space created by the new bathroom looked. Designing the new basement bathroom took a lot of work to determine feasibility of meeting all codes and for feasibility of new sewer installation. I was very happy with the results in terms of quality of the work and the design elements all working out as I had envisioned. I used this contractor for a previous kitchen renovation and a complete gutting and renovation of my second level and plan to use for additional future projects. So, yes, I definitely recommend this contractor.
Recent Review: While the project grew and lasted quite awhile it turned out great! There were 2 large walls built and we added stairs into one of them. The largest wall required an engineer. Both walls turned out great. Greg was very accomadating and also very meticulous. I would not hesitate to hire them again.
Recent Review: When the brick accent and stoops on the exterior of our 1934-era stucco house deteriorated, we looked to several referral websites for repair/replacement recommendations. Now that UWS has completed the work on our home, we can add our own review: John and his crew are outstanding! Every step of the process was top-notch and exceeded our expectations. At our first meeting and throughout the project, it was clear that John's priorities and strengths are attention to detail, client communication, and an aesthetic vision for the finished project. The new facade, now natural stone, greatly enhances the beauty and character of our South Minneapolis home. We continue to receive compliments from neighbors, friends, and complete strangers! We are pleased to tell people that we worked with John Laudon and United Wall Systems.
Recent Review: THEY HAD SOME VERY GOOD EQUIPMENT THAT MINIMIZED OTHER DAMAGE TO THE YARD. CHARLIE WORKED WITH ME. WE HAD A COUPLE OF INTERIM MEETINGS ABOUT THE PROJECT. I THOUGHT THEY WERE REAL GOOD. THE CREW WAS VERY CAREFUL WITH THE YARD. THE WALL TURNED OUT GREAT, IT WAS JUST WHAT I WAS LOOKING FOR!
Recent Review: The new walls and steps are beautiful and functional. Goodfellows gave us a good analysis of the project and a good explanation of our choices. We scheduled an early season installation to minimize stress to a mature garden. The first day, Goodfellows moved and stored already-growing perennials, demolished both walls and rebuilt the upper wall. Then it rained for days. When Goodfellows was able to return five days later, the crew built two sets of steps and the lower wall and cleaned up the site in just two days. They had cleaned up as they worked, and left the site in very good condition. The day after the walls were completed, we were able to replant the terrace gardens.
Recent Review: Kurt is very professional and responsive to all our questions and gave us some useful direction in what was possible in a touch-up job. our paint is about 13 years old and we didn't want a complete job--just freshen up the interior and take care of any bare wood or peeling paint outside. make it look good but we didn't want to change colors and repaint everything. we're very satisfied.
Recent Review: They went above and beyond, telling me the water softener was broken and told the furniture delivery people where to put it when I couldn't get it rescheduled for when I would be there. They kept me informed during the entire process. Very professional
Recent Review: The night they came out to give us the bid, he was on time. Very friendly. We discussed our options on colors and patterns for the stamped concrete. A suggestion was made to make the entrance steps wider. We did that and are very happy. We accepted the bid and discussed when the work would be scheduled. I was waiting to put my flowers in until after the work, otherwise my flowers would be in the way the crew doing their job. I got a call a couple of weeks later saying they could move our work date up so I could get my flowers in before Memorial Day. I appreciated that. They came to do the work on the scheduled date. When they tore out the concrete that another company had installed 4 years ago, they found it did not have any mesh or re-bar in it. That is why it was cracking so badly. That is a shortcut that other company took to save themselves some money. The next day they showed up on time, worked quickly and finished the job. The concrete looks great. We are happy.
