Recent Review: We first have to say we were extremely fortunate to have found Dwight! He has done work for friends of ours and when we were saying we needed to find someone to remodel our bathroom and kitchen they spoke very highly of his services. He is highly sought after in this area. He owns Brevard kitchen and bath as well as the designer. And also has a One Stop handyman service. And after talking with him we learned he recently took on Hydro Clean pressure washing this past summer. That's one busy fella lol. We confirmed an appointment with him for 2 weeks from the time we talked and the morning of the appointment he gave us a courtesy call confirming our appointment. Then soon after a handsome man was at my door. He spent almost 2 hours with us asking questions that we didn't even think of ourselves. Came up with great ideas and was very knowledgeable.3 days later calls to see if he may stop by that afternoon to show us the estimate. He not only had the estimate but in the other arm he had a 3D model he made of our bathroom and kitchen he made himself! It was the neatest thing! We were impressed with what he had designed and the cost was in our budget. We had seen a bad review but, after talking to our friends and his references decided it was a bogus review. The contract he wrote was detailed and stated the start time and estimated length. He had a 4 man crew and showed up everyday until the entire project was complete. The work was totally what we expected from him. I will definitely refer him to a friend.

Recent Review: Project duration from 1st contact to final was 2-months. We were out of the kitchen for 1 1/2 months. This fit our schedule. Asheville Kitchens and Baths has been in business for over 20 years. They have tradesmen who've worked with AKB typically 5 yrs or more. Cabinet removal was orderly, with caution not to damage passages. No dropping, throwing, or crashing hammers. Cabinets donated to local charity. Their flooring and backsplash team obviously had many years of experience. Demo completed without damage to wooden subfloor and wall surfaces. Trash removal, cleaning, and haul away was great. They prepared and leveled subflooring followed by laying 20 inch tiles with regular cuts and some complex cuts in multi-directions and angles finishing with grout. Excellent work skills, methods, and results. Selected upper and lower cabinets were delivered within promised time period. Excellent overall quality of side and back walls, supports, doors, drawers and faces, self closing hardware, finishes, and transport containers. Cabinet installer was and quot;Outstandingand quot;. As a long time cabinet maker, his work was smooth, accurate, and always tentative to protecting surfaces. Granite supplier located in neighboring community had decades of experience, good selection of slabs, used advanced digital technology to measure and produce template for each section of counter-top. Finished sections delivered within promised timeframe. We rate their business, professionalism, methods, and personnel as Excellent to Outstanding. Electrician relocated plugs, added new plugs, ran wire in wall for under cabinet lights prior to hanging of cabinets, installed multiple sets of under cabinet LED lights, and obtained city inspections. Our rating is Excellent. Plumbing locations were not moved. This required only new lines from existing location to new sink drain, faucet set, and dishwasher. Work was completed in good order.

Recent Review: They replaced cabinets new Hard wood floor raised the ceiling and dry wall in about 50% took out a wall I had to ask to do the flooring over in places because it was to large of cracks between the boards which I guess it was not all of their fault the boards were different thickness and width, did a good job on the dry wall and Cabinets finally, had to stay on them all of the time about different things that were not done correct. I ordered custom cabinets and they tried to slip in standard cabinets he made several errors in measuring them made them replace all of the cabinet doors they ordered wrong style and four sections of cabinets, On the island they put a custom hood and supposedly put a baffle in, well that winter we found out that he never put any thing up there and the wind would blow and come down the pipe and blow our napkins off of the bar and blow a pen or pencil off in the floor we tried calling him and he would never call or answer the phone to this day. Some of his workers were good carpenters and some thought they new it all just be cause you have a hammer that does not make you a carpenter.

The project has received many compliments. The work area was always left clean and organized. Each project was completed in the estimated time frame. The cost was reasonable and I will be using Nico Enterprises again soon.

AVazquez Construction
I purchased a "simple" 1600 sq. ft. house that needed remodeling in Brevard NC.  After 3 appts with other contractors who wanted me to get a designer(?) for the job, would have other subs involved which extended the time period to work around them, quoted months of work and wanted to change this house to a "million dollar home" at an overpriced cost.   I contacted Humberto thru the internet for appt.  He showed up on time (unlike the others) with a smile on his face.  He listened, told me what was involved in doing what "I" wanted to accomplish and gave me his prices and the date he could start..  He started the job when stated and did just what he said he would do.  There wasn't much he couldn't do with his crew.  He was courteous, punctual, honest and maintained  good communication on each  project.  His employees were great and the house was kept as clean as possible during the renovation.  If there was a project he did not do, he recommended associates that were reputable and had great working skills as he and his men did.  I could not be more pleased with the quality of work and the house is complete the way "I" wanted it done in a very reasonable time period.  In fact, there were times I could not keep up with him he moved so fast.  He was there to work! . I highly recommend Vazquez construction, you won't be disappointed.

It did not go well at all. For the amount of money we spent, everything should have been pristine and absolutely perfect. It is not. The work began in June of 2012 and nearly two years after the major construction was finished, it is still not up to the standard we have every right to expect. First, the contractor is from Asheville and we live in Brevard, In hindsight, this was probably a poor choice, but we were impressed by his 80+ "A" ratings reviews on Angie's list. The contractor was only rarely on the site (less than once a week over a six-month project. When he was on the site, he extracted from us a $75 trip charge in addition to our agreed upon cost-plus. There was no foreman, which meant that we were constantly being pestered with questions despite his promises that we would be required to answer no questions. I work at home and the entire summer was a total loss in terms of being able to get any work done. One example: The framers seriously misread the architect's plans and incorrectly framed the windows in the addition. Fortunately, I was on site and was able to stop it before it went too far. The misframing of the shower and laundry room due to failure to follow the same architectural drawings was not discovered until it was too late to remedy without considerable expense, so our shower was smaller than designed, which has caused other problems, including that the shower head is not where it was originally designed, but is now far away from the shower doorway, necessitating the shower taker to turn on the water and run like h*** to escape a cascade of cold water until the hot water arrives from the distant demand water heater. There?s lots more, but you get the idea. Since we were neophytes as this sort of project, we asked for his direction on what, when and how we would need to do things as the project moved on, i.e. when we would need to pack up and move things, how to minimize the disruption in our lives, when we should order certain items (like the bathtub), etc. We agreed that the entire addition would be complete and occupiable before work was started in the existing house, a promise that was not kept and resulted in the entire house being a wreck for a couple of months.   Primarily, we said we wanted the moving of the two kitchens to be minimally disruptive. We were promised the up[stairs kitchen would be moved downstairs and we wouldn't be without a kitchen for more than ?three or four days at most." We specified that no kitchen work would take place on the week when our granddaughters were visiting, but we had literally been home with them for an hour when we got a message that the kitchen would be demoed in two days --forcing me to find someone to take care of the children AND hire people to help me pack the entire kitchen. The straw that broke the camel's back and almost caused us to fire him was the response, "It will get done when it gets done," in answer to our question about the lack of any kitchen at all two weeks later. There were many similar examples of the contractor's failure to listen to our needs and wishes and failure of planning, including the need to move most of our household goods at least twice and some things were moved as many as four times, simply because he didn't anticipate what space would be needed and when. This caused not only added expense, but added stress in an already stressful situation. We continued and, to be frank, the quality of the work was mediocre at best. The concrete garage floor had major cracks before the work was even complete, which he told us was ?normal.? Mitering and caulking of moldings were shoddy in many places. He used inexperienced laborers to do stucco work, which meant it had to be re-done three times before it was nominally satisfactory. Pieces of cedar siding fell off within a couple of months. Electricians installed outlets that were not level and were a variety of colors. The tiling in the master bath (which took an agonizing and expensive two full weeks) was either completely unsealed or only nominally sealed despite our specification that we wanted 30-year grout sealer. (The tiler told us the 30-year sealer was ?too much trouble.?) We have been unable to clean it, even with bleach solution.  At one point, I found the $35/hour carpenter sweeping and cleaning the construction site and carrying out boxes while the $10 an hour laborer (the contractor?s teenaged son, BTW) sunbathed in the yard with this earphones on. Trim pieces were never installed at the tops of the kitchen cabinets, leaving unsightly gaps. Cracks have appeared in sheet rock just installed. The cork floor in the kitchen is seriously scratched and may need to be replaced because we listened to the flooring company owner (another of the contractor?s sons) that it would not scratch ?unless we had pet wolverines.? We do have dogs, and if we were aware that the floor would be so severely damaged by normal walking on the floor, we would have had it sealed. Paint has flaked off the walls four feet off the floor in one of the bathrooms, which the contractor attributes to our dogs, as he does the flaking paint on the basement staircase stair risers. I?m not entirely how gymnastically talented he thinks our dogs are, but this borders on the absurd. The list goes on and on. The continuing issue: When the garage was framed in, there was a post right in the middle. That would have made it difficult, if not impossible, to park both cars in the garage and be able to open the doors. We pointed out this problem on the very first day the post was installed and he promised he would speak with the architect and remedy the situation. Despite numerous questions and comments throughout the following months, the work progressed and eventually the garage was sheetrocked and painted with the offending post still in place. At one point, he even suggested that we wait until all of the inspections were complete and then ?just take out the post.? He assured us that the worst thing that would happen was that the floors would squeak a little.  We were horrified. Finally work was complete in December 2012 and we paid the final installment in good faith because he promised he would ?take care of the post in the garage right away. Finally, in January of 2014 (13 months later), a crew appeared and installed steel plates on both sides of the garage beam, (in response to the specifications of an engineer we hired after the fact). We had agreed to pay the materials cost for the steel plates, approximately $550 and he would provide the labor. Since 13 months had passed since the completion of the major part of the work, we felt it was only fair to withhold that $550 until all of the work and punchlist items were completed. Included on that list were minor things: Dealing with the cracks in the sheetrock (which on the fly in January, we now learn had been patched with  caulk and never sanded or painted), the grout in the shower, the trim pieces on the kitchen cabinets, filling the hole where the garage post had been, correcting the misalignment of the garage door caused by the installation of the steel beam supports, some paint flaking due to improper prep work and a few other things. He promised he?d be back within a week to finish the punchlist and we agreed to pay him the $550 steel materials cost at the time.   We heard nothing for more than three months, despite several e-mails. Finally he responded that he would come and complete the work that he felt was warranted (not everything on the punch list) AFTER we paid him. Trying to keep our tempers under control in late May, we asked him to delineate what work he thought was fair. His answer was that he would prepare a list, but that we would see quick action as soon as we sent him a check.  Based on our experience of the 13-month lag in getting the garage post removed, we wanted to see the whites of his eyes before we gave him any more money. We assured him that we would pay him the $550 on the spot the moment his workers appeared with all of the material needed to complete the work on the punchlist.  Let?s get real here, we are talking about $550 on a $130,000 project and we by that time were 18 months after the major work was completed and he was paid! The last e-mail from him came on June 26, again promising to prepare the list of things to be completed and be here in early July. We have heard nothing since. We think we have gone far beyond the realm of fairness and reason in dealing with this contractor. We have been more than patient and we have tried every avenue to complete this job to everyone?s satisfaction.  We?ve given him every benefit of the doubt and have waited far beyond what is reasonable for this project to be complete. We?ve barely skimmed the surface here, but we think this is sufficient to justify our poor rating for this contractor. We?ll be very interested in hearing his response.

DAndre's Home renovations & repairs
:Note Andre went by several names, one of which was Bruce McAnnally.  Andre was always in a hurry and would leave for other jobs and I would have to call him as to when he would be returning to work on our place.  When he did return it was for a short period of time.  He was in such a hurry to paint our walls, that paint drippings still remain not only on the walls, but on our rugs. He was not conscientious in protecting our rugs and furniture and used poor quality flimsy coverings.   Our home remained a mess cause he never stayed and finished what he was working on.  He nicked our new refrigerator and found him to be careless.  He spilled something on our entrance tile and we were unable to get the stain out, so my husband ended up replacing the tile.   He did a decent job hooking up our new kitchen appliances, laying our kitchen vinyl floor, and building a nice kitchen pantry.

I found Mr. Smith to be arrogant, rude and overbearing. He came into my house criticizing it and stated frankly that it wasn't much of a house and had no interesting artichectural features. He began immediately trying to sell me sky lights and other items that I neither wanted nor needed. After having the subs to my house, it took more than two weeks before Mr. Smith got back to me with estimates and proposals. I questioned him about the estimates and sent several emails with specific questions about the estimates and what was or was not included. He never responded to my emails and days would pass before he returned phone calls. I checked with one of the subs and learned that the bid they had proposed was $6,000 less than the estimate Mr. Smith had forwarded to me. I questioned Mr. Smith about this and again asked for an explanation of the difference. I felt that I could never get a straight answer from him. Neither could I get dates of beginning and completing the projects. I continued to experience Mr. Smith as being a bully and unprofessoinal. Finally I sent Mr. Smith an email and told him that I wanted an itemized contract with all of my questions resolved before proceeding with the work. He did not respons to my email and did not call. The next morning he came to my door, did not knock or ring the doorbell and removed his lockbox, leaving my key under the door. I only knew that he was at my door because my dogs barked. When I went to the door I saw Mr. Smith leaving. He never contacted me again after that. The sub-contractor I had spoken with (a very reputable local contractor) told me that he was also rude to them and were glad not to be working with him on this project.
