Recent Review: Came out for an estimate in a timely manner, returned a thorough estimate quickly. His estimate was competitive to other handyman contractor we had gotten estimates from. Everything was done within the time line on the contract (all delay were weather related). I was traveling for several days of work and Tim would email me progress updates. We are very happy with the work that was done on our house.

Recent Review: .It did not go well. Missed six days over the course of the construction with lame excuses ie car trouble, it MIGHT rain etc. He did not have the experience he claimed to have when it came to the handrails, The steps and rails did not meet code. The pickets on the handrails are spaced randomly, they are not even(straight up/down),also used two different styles of rails. On the steps he had miscut the rails and the pickets were way off. He also plugged holes where pickets were supposed to be because he didnt measure correctly so the top and bottom did not line up. Also on the step  handrails, the top rails were not at uniform heights On the steps risers are required if the space between steps is over 4". I had to pay someone else to do this. On the steps to the landing he used four stringers. On the steps from the landing down he used three stringers and these steps give if a heavy person walks on them. For the treads he used the decking which was grooved on the edges instead of the proper tread boards which looked awful and created a trip hazard. He tried to cover this up by scabbing 4x10" or so boards on the sides of the steps. After about two weeks the boards started separating from the steps and also splitting in two.He told me a crew would be here everyday until the job was done. His crew consisted of him and his wife who was mainly a clean up person. HE REFUSED TO COME BACK TO MY HOME AND ADDRESS ANY PROBLEMS I FOUND. After several texts and phone conversations he blocked my number on his phones. I have since had to find other contractors who were willing to work behind someone else. this is not an easy task. I now have someone lined up to replace the shoddy handrails he installed. I am filing a claim in small claims court to try and recover my losses. UPDATE-I WON MY SMALL CLAIMS CASE. HE NEVER DEFENDED HIS BAD WORK. HE SPENT HIS WHOLE CASE BAD MOUTHING ME, THE CUSTOMER! CLAIMED I WAS "DIFFICULT". YES I WAS, IF BEING DIFFICULT MEANS ASKING SOMEONE TO FIX PROBLEMS AS THE ARISE. I WILL NEVER HIRE ANOTHER "CONTRACTOR" WITHOUT REFERENCES

Recent Review: Prompt, professional, efficient, affordable, and friendly service! After searching extensively for someone willing to come to Brookneal on short notice for a job that was needed in a quick time frame we found Maintenance Plus on Angie's List...THANK GOODNESS!! I called in the morning, they called back within an hour or so with an estimate and drove all the way down to complete the job by 4 that evening! They were lifesavers for us. To top off the pleasant business experience we were able to meet two very nice people. We would definitely recommend their service and would hire them again.

Recent Review: They were very meticulous about the work. He takes a lot of pride in his work as well. They came in under budget and everything was excellent. He is very honest.

Recent Review: Job was completed on time and within budget. Alex did the entire job himself. He used all screw construction.  Adding the pickets to the stair railings really made a good visual impact as I did not have pickets on my old railings. Alex did an outstanding job and I would highly recommend.

Recent Review: The ratings tell the story. (But, don't give Lance too-big a hammer.)

We decided to add a screened porch to the back of our house which was over a walkout basement. Rodney removed the existing deck, enlarged the size for the new deck with added underneath supports and placed the porch on most of the deck but left an outside area (with a door out to it) so we could hang bird feeders or add planters to the outside railing. He configured the roof line to architecturally fit with the back of our house. We chose composite decking with all wood for railings and supports plus a natural stain for the pine ceiling and weatherproof ceiling fan. A small amount of siding was added to the back peak line under the roof. The railings and pickets were stained white and the underneath supports were painted to match the composite deck. We are so excited share this review and look forward to warmer weather so we can enjoy our screened porch without the sun beating down on us all day!

I initially called on a weekend and was able to get through to Ryan immediately. He came to our house for an estimate within a day or so. We were impressed with his professional, straightforward manner, and he seemed quite knowledgeable about several areas of home repair. We needed help with various tasks, his estimate seemed fair, and it looked like a good fit. Ryan arrived on time and put in a full day. Communication was good throughout the time he worked for us. He possessed an open and friendly manner, asked questions when needed, and went about tasks efficiently. Many times he picked up needed materials such as paint, faucets, etc. He always did this on his own time, at no charge to us, nor did he charge for his travel time (30 miles distance from us). We are very satisfied with the result. He was always willing to go above and beyond. His standards are high and he guaranteed his work. Ryan did an amazing job at a good price, and he did so in a cheerful manner. We highly recommend him.

Very poor organization. they utilized sub-contractors for the entire project and and when problems arose (siding falling off / siding installed over attic vent / they were to wrap the house w/ Tyvek (which I paid extra for) they did not do the entire house / ordered alum-deck rails and they installed PVC (have to have them remove the PVC and install what was detailed in the contract / roof ridge cap blew off and it was not storm related (the tek-screws they used were not long enough to penetrate the wood - I had to have another contractor review and advise on correction methods).....................I just moved into the area and did not know any GC's and thought this firm was professional - my $50+ thousand dollar MISTAKE.
