Recent Review: Foundation #1 was recommended to us by an independent Structural Engineer (with 30 years experience) that I had hired to "evaluate" my home due to an "impossible" water problem that we were having in our basement. Dave and Tom came in with their Team @ Foundation #1 and did such a PHENOMENAL job!! They FIXED, not ONLY our water problem in the basement, but made sure that our home was STRUCTURALLY SOUND!! You, see...my Husband and I have fought this water problem in our basement for the last 20 years and no one has EVER been able to "figure out" how to SOLVE the problem until I was BLESSED with finding Foundation #1!!!! Dave and Tom are not only EXPERTS in their field but they are truly caring human beings that you can trust and count on to create a CUSTOMIZED SOLUTION for your foundation problem!!!
Recent Review: Caleb was quick to come out for an estimate and had lots of design ideas in mind. The Modern Concrete quote was in line with the 3 other bids we received for the project. We were impressed with how quickly they were able to get us on the calendar. Even with the rainy spring weather, we were able to have the project completed from contact signing to payment in less than 3 weeks. The patio and sitting wall are visually beautiful and, thus far, are holding up well. The only minor complaint we have is that communication via voicemail and email was very slow. The best chance for a prompt response for us, came from direct contact via telephone.
Recent Review: We had a wooden retaining wall that had started to lean over and the stone wall had started to crack in a few places. Neither of the existing walls had any drain tile and the wooden wall did not have a footing or deadmen in place. After contacting Grant Renne, Mark came out to give us a bid for removing the existing walls and rebuilding them will all stone. This initial bid was done in April. We decided to go with Grant Renne after getting several other bids. Work was scheduled to begin towards the end of June. Unfortunately due to scheduling problems on their side as well as ours, work was not actually begun until sometime in September. Once the work was started we ran into a few delays due to weather. Calvin and his crew were great! Very personable and more than willing to answer any questions we had. We did ask for a couple of small changes during the course of the project. One was to add some steps into the wall and the other was to extend the drain tile out under the deck to meet up with some other drainage on the property. We had a couple of small problems during the project. One was that when the stone (several tons) was staged, it was all dumped onto the wooden deck without anything done to try to protect the deck. The other problem was that much of the old broken concrete was dumped into the treeline behind the fence which couldn't be seen until you were in the second floor of the house. I did talk to Calvin about both issues and he moved the stones and placed them all on tarps at least and the old concrete was hauled away. After the work was done, I did have to call Grant Renne back a couple of times due to some of the stones coming loose after the concrete dried. They came back both times to fix the loose stones without any questions. Overall this was a good experience.

Handyman Connection has always offered workmen that are courteous, reliable, and clean. In the case of the leak from roof, which caused the repair to interior window well wood, we went through three workmen to ultimately find the leak. However, even though it took two years to find the leak, in between, the workmen did repeatedly repair area thinking they found the leak at no extra charge to me. Handyman sent out a workman who h ad located the leak on the roof, where I had previously had a roofing company explore and fix any porous areas. I appreciate the integrity of Handyman as they saw the job through till the end regardless of the time that it took at no additional expense to me.

Matt and his team are very professional and efficient. The old limestone wall was a huge eyesore in the neighborhood. I quoted 3 different companies and was very comfortable with Matt; he worked within my budget. We discussed the different options and scheduled a date. Matt's team arrived and they were very friendly, courteous and fast. They removed the limestone and started the grading and added the retaining wall. I waited a year to write the review because retaining walls will shift if not done properly. The retaining wall has not shifted and I (and the neighbors) will enjoy it for years to come. Thanks Matt and Team!

They did a quick, excellent job. There were three people plus the supervisor that I contracted with. They completed the wall in three days. They were very precise when we talked about exactly where we wanted the wall as well as the color and shape. We got exactly what we wanted. They had torn up a lot of the lawn while setting the bricks, but they brought in about 30-40 sq ft of grass sod and re-did the lawn right in front of the wall, so it looked like the wall had been there forever.

I needed my Mother's house prepped to be sold. Absolute Improvement was hired to repair nail holes and paint, her entire 8 room house. We were happy with the job and how quickly it was completed. While waiting for the house to sell, the retainer wall on the patio collapsed during a heavy rain. Again, we contacted Absolute Improvement, they hauled away the old wall debris and constructed a much more beautiful wall in its place. What great guys! and the reasonable price impressed me too. We'll call them again when our own house needs repair. Mom's house sold quickly with the new attractive retaining wall that really improved the look of the patio.

First Logan explained his solution to my problem and explained how he was going to remove and replace the wall with a stronger and more secure wall. He further explained the materials he recommended and how the wall would be tied back into the yard. Once I choice American Landscaping and Patio a schedule date was agreed upon, his team showed up and started the demolition The Crew arrived and work each day, manually digging out a footing to support a new Paver stone wall. They carefully installed the starter course and correct drainage, had the work inspected and began installing a paver stone wall with aigrette stone and Kevlar ties insuring the wall will last. As rain interrupted the work, the Crew ask and came on a Saturday to complete the wall. The also cleaned up the yard, re-graded and re-seeded the ground Overall, American Landscape and Patio did an excellent job and I would recommend this company.

They were later getting the job started than originally estimated. Once the job was started they worked steadily through completion. Good workmanship, flexibility in adjusting the scope of job as they went along. Easy to work with and professional. Gave a detailed estimate up front and stuck with it.

Matt Hensley's crew did a great job building a small landscape wall at the front of our house. Matt was easy to work with, had lots of very good Angie's List reviews and gave a fair price. For our small job, Mike and Randy built gravel base, then built a 16" landscape wall with a "Trap Cap" on top of the wall. They were good workers and very friendly. I would very much recommend Outlook, Inc!

They did very good work. They were professional and cleaned up after themselves. We were very pleased with the wall and we got complements from our neighbors about the wall that they made. The landscaping that they did was good as well.

Kent was very clear and detailed about what would be done and how much it would cost. They removed the old wall (part of which had fallen onto the sidewalk!) and replaced it with a very nice looking wall. I was really surprised and pleased with how fast they were able to get it finished.
