Reviews in Irving for Range Hood Installation

FMr QuickFix
I?ve given this review a lot of careful consideration before posting as I know Jay has a number of high ratings, but ultimately decided that I did not want anyone to go through the same experience we did. Jay came out to give us a quote on three different projects:  (i) removing an old range hood and installing a new one; (ii) installing crown molding in a few rooms; and (iii) and building an outdoor TV cabinet for enclosing a flat screen TV.  On the crown molding, he gave me a quote based on the number of hours he expected for it to take.  The quote was almost $500 more than a previous quote we received for labor associated with installing crown molding.  When he quoted me on the range hood, he gave me a fixed amount, and I specifically noted that the range hood was a fixed amount instead of an hourly charge like the crown molding.  He confirmed that that was correct.  While discussing the work associated with the range hood during the estimate, I noted that my husband was very tall and that we wanted the range hood to be hung higher than our last one.  At that point, Jay said that he could always modify the range hood shaft by cutting it if that was necessary to get it to the desired height.  Knowing that this was a requirement of the job, Jay still quoted us a fixed amount.  We decided to hire him for the range hood project and the outdoor cabinet TV. He came over two days later to do the project.  We again went over the requirements, and he began working. After removing the old hood, he consulted me because it looked like the new range hood was going to hang lower than the older one.  At that point, he again suggested that he could cut the shaft to make it hang higher.  I then called my husband through Google Hangouts to consult with him on the height (and so that I could show him the pieces that Jay planned to cut). We discussed the height with Jay for maybe 10 minutes.  After we hung up, Jay proceeded to mark measurements for the height, which were incorrect and inconsistent with what we had decided.  I had to explain to him again and actually mark on the metal where the cut should be (because his measurements, which he did multiple times, were all incorrect).  I even had to draw the hood on a piece of paper to ensure that he hung it correctly.  A little while later, my husband stopped by during his lunch break, and while there, he had to actually screw in the range hood because Jay was struggling to lift it up (I have no idea how he would have hung this if my husband had not stopped by as he had previously mentioned trying to hoist it up with a wire coat hanger using a pillow underneath it, both of which made me very nervous for a new range hood).  When Jay finished, he called me downstairs and immediately began talking about how hard this project was (even though he was fully aware of the requirements when he gave us the estimate).  He himself said that he did not do a good job of caulking the seam where the range hood met the ceiling.  In fact, it was quite an awful job of caulking ? it was smeared on the hood and gaps were left open.   He then proceeded to charge us 66% more than he quoted us.  I was shocked by this but had no choice but to write him a check.  I could understand a small difference in price from the quote, but nothing that large, especially given the poor work quality.  After I gave him the check, he mumbled something about not knowing where a broom was to clean up.  He left our kitchen floors and counters a complete mess, as well as dirt all over the top of the range hood.  At that point, I just wanted him to leave our house, so I then had to clean up after him.  We have had many contractors do work on our home, and all of them have brought a shop vac or a broom with them to clean up afterward.  He also dropped a screw into our disposal, which he did not get out, and almost blew out the motor on the disposal (my husband and I had to spend about 25 minutes digging it out).  Additionally, he left the old range hood, and its parts in the middle of our home and did not offer to take them with him or at least place outside for bulk trash (again, this is something other contractors routinely do).  Needless to say, we will not be using him for the outdoor TV project. My husband called him after he left to tell him how angry and frustrated he was with the price difference and work performed.  Jay then called us ?unreasonable? customers because we wanted modifications made to the hood, which included cutting the shaft.  These modifications, however, were clearly discussed with him when he came over to give us an estimate (and before any work was performed).  He was fully aware of what the project required and gave us an estimate based on that knowledge.  He complained about having to talk to us about the height requirements while he was working, including the fact that I called my husband through Google hangouts (even though, without these discussions, he would have done the job incorrectly).  Again, any work we have had done on our house in the past has required some consultation or discussion between the contractor and my husband and/or me.  Apparently, Jay thinks that these discussions are ?unreasonable .?  He also suggested to my husband that my husband must intimidate or scare me given my reaction to the price differential.  This was extremely offensive to me and completely inappropriate.  My husband and I are a team and openly communicate about all work being done on our home.  To suggest the fact that I consulted with my husband over this project suggests that I was intimidated is ludicrous and demonstrates Jay's unprofessional behavior. Several hours after my husband spoke with Jay, Jay sent me a text message again complaining about our unreasonableness and all of the ?extra modifications? required by the project.  I told him I disagreed with his assessment and explained how disappointed we were not only with the price difference but his workmanship as a whole. I also asked him not to text me again.  He then sent me two more text messages complaining about us as customers and our ?unreasonableness.?  I had to again ask him to stop texting me. I realize that he will have a different recollection of the project and point to his many positive reviews, but I wanted to make sure that others are aware of our experience.  Perhaps he has just not hung range hoods before and agreed to a job that was outside of his expertise, but in any event, his work will require additional clean up and fixing at our expense.  If you decide to use him, I would be careful on the amount he ?quotes? as well as his overall workmanship.

We needed an island hood installed. When we called around for installers most did not do the full install, IE duct work, electrical, etc. Vent One did it all. They quoted a price over the phone, was approximate in the amount of time it would take and when they came out, the quote, nor time did not change. The receptionist was very nice and knowledgeable. And the technicians were great.

The secretary did not sound friendly in the initial phone call. But the technicians were friendly. They did their job efficiently - I think from having a lot of experience. They cleaned up well. The new range hood and duct work very well.

Vent Tech was great. They were responsive on the phone and where other providers gave a blanket estimate over the phone, Vent Tech sent a crew to assess the job before giving an estimate. They showed up on time to give the estimate and do the job. They were very professional.The were careful not to mark up my walls and put drop cloth down to catch the debris from drilling and cutting etc. The time they estimated to do the job was accurate. I would hire them again.

Two Vent craft. Employees constructed a new vent from our kitchen to the outside for a new range hood. This took several hours of work and they were efficient and professional. They then came back for the second time a few days later after the electrician had installed a new outlet for the hood. They installed the new island hood over the vent and cleaned up. They did a wonderful job and we were impressed by their work and professionalism. We would highly recommend them!

Dominic was late arriving and only got the attic ladder installed which should not have taken 4 hours. He gave plenty of excuses why It took four hours he also indicated he was not a professional and he did the best he could. Afterwards he said he take a 30 minute lunch be right back to install the range hood. He never showed back up nor called and I wound up installing the range hood myself. I will never use this guy again. stay anyway

Couldn't be happier.... I knew installing this hood would be a challenge for anyone. It was over our island range were no hood had been installed before.  I am a tall guy so I needed it higher than the OEM specs called out so I ordered a higher CFM unit to accommodate the higher mount.  However, with only having 8 foot ceilings in that location it would have been too low for my liking.   No sweat for these guys.... they were able to figure out a solution and custom build a mounting point above the ceiling to mount the unit to the exact height I wanted.  Now, there is no more smelling dinner way past bedtime.... vent works amazingly. I had 3 other quotes from vent "specialists" around DFW and they were way higher plus, they wouldn't wire it in so I would have had to hire an electrician on top of that.  I was looking for a one stop shop to get this glass beast installed and Tom and his nephew knocked it out of the park. I've never considered a handyman service before.... now I highly recommend these guys!!  I am already compiling a list for my next tasks for them.

Very professional, the staff were very knowledgeable about their craft. It was a 3 step process. First they removed the existing wall mount range hood that had been sunk into the ceiling. The duct work was repostioned so the new flue would be properly centered once the dry wall was completed. When they came back to install the range hood, the back splash had an area that needed to be cut to fit an existing electrical socket, they recommend a good sheet metal shop. Once that was done they came back and installed the back splash.  returned phone calls right away and were prompt, calling ahead to confirm thier arrival time.

He said he would come early on Saturday the 15th of June and he was right on the dot.  The installation was fantastic, took almost 6 hours.  Bobby Gory was on time and the work was done the man is a perfectionist,  Had a master electrician run wires to new hood he was great also, Michael Anderson..  I will definitely use both of them again in the near future, can't say enough good things about both of them.

Recent Review: I can truly say I would use Legacy Plumbing again because I did.  We sold a house and the water pressure in the area had increased in the last two years.  As a result, the buyer wanted a PRV installed.  Legacy gave me a range that the price might be in depending on permits, digging, location, etc... The PRV is installed near the existing back flow prevention valve that is in the flower bed under two sizable rose bushes. Doug was undaunted and created a space for him to dig down to the existing valve for the installation.  The builder's installation turned out to be not very professional as it was under an upside down 5 gallon painters bucket that had the bottom cut out and a green lawn sprinkler cover on it.  Doug ended up having to dig almost 2 feet below the surface to find a poor condition valve.  He replaced the valve, re-routed the line, installed the PRV, installed an actual valve box, and filled the box with pea gravel.  Then he replaced all the dirt from the dig and put the mulch back in place. I would definitely use Legacy Plumbing again in the future.

Recent Review: Their guys are  true professionals. They always showed up on time, were tidy, professional and courteous. All work was done to my satisfaction. On this last occasion we had an toilet that was wobbly. We picked out our toilet, plus a sink with vanity, a wall mirror, new light fixtures, and G.H's guys picked them up and brought them to our condo. They unpacked everything outside and after removing our old stuff, they brought in everything piece by piece. They tidies up the area around the toilet, set new bolts, and applied a new seal. They then set the toilet, applied a nice bead of calk. This was something my husband noticed. They then attached the water and it was done in about 10 minutes. The cabinet with the new fixtures was installed. It took a little longer but it went in smoothly. It was obvious the workers knew what they were doing. You know when someone has done something before by how they move and install. The wall mounted light fixtures went in smoothly. The suggested we add a piece of trim to cover the holes left by the old fixture. Not only did it look great but it saved us money by not having to repair the hole. Just a small accent piece that cost $3, saved us about $50. It adds up. They also replaced our front door knob and installed a new dead bolt. Again it was done smoothly and cleanly. Since I am on cleanliness, G.H. is one of the cleanest companies I have ever used. They clean as they go and remove everything and clean up. All I had to do was supply a vacuum and a broom. This is not the first time we used G.H. Complete Construction and it won't be the last.  Give them a call, you won't be disappointed.

Recent Review: This was our first experience with remodeling a home.  Colin originally told me that it would take between 6-8 weeks.  The process took about 6 1/2 weeks which was exactly in the range that he gave us.  He had workers there almost every day of the week.  We never had a time where he pulled workers from our house to do work elsewhere.  Our home was  a priority and he made sure that the plumber, electrician, tile guy, carpenter, and painter were all scheduled and worked together to complete the project as quickly as possible.  He gave me advice on tile, paint colors and anything else that I asked him about.  We are pleased with the outcome and would use Colin again.  I highly recommend Josey Construction for any remodeling needs you have!
