Recent Review: Only one glitch. Initial delivery had one unit of the wrong size. Company re-ordered, which took about 3 weeks, and the new unit arrived properly sized but wrong color. Another wait. No serious consequences, just one odd misfit for a while. (It was on the back of the house, so the neighbors didn't get ugly.) What made the whole experience noteworthy was the selling phase. In this area, window salesmen are notoriously aggressive, and my wife and I had had an experience several years ago which put us completely off the whole process. When I (now a widower) returned to the arena last spring, I did some pre-selection, with Angie's List and other sources. A world of difference: calm, matter-of-fact presentations, and firm, well-defined bids readily available. Further, WindowUniverse seems to have a real staff with a half-dozen people involved at various points, instead of one entrepreneur who sleeps in his car. The windows work, too; I've been toasty warm amid all the polar vortices. All in all, a nice if somewhat expensive adventure.

Recent Review: The workers arrived on time and finished the job before the day was over. The workers were courteous and fast. I was sad to see my old wood ceiling go, but the new ceiling was just beautiful. They caulked around the edges where the trim met the house, and after I pointed it out, the area where the trim met the painted columns. Very happy with the work they did.

It went great! Casual Glenn came out to my home to install trim moulding around my fireplace. Before I called him, my fireplace was looking terrible. I like to do my own repairs but was stumped as to how to tackle this job. Casual Glenn came out and took a look and immediately told me what he could do to make it look great. We discussed the cost which turned out to be much lower than I expected. His prices are very good. He agreed to follow up with a written estimate and asked for my email address. That same day I had the estimate in my email inbox along with the date and time that he would come to do the repair. He texted me on that day to let me know that he was on his way. He arrived on time and began the work. I watched him the entire time because from the moment he started the job, I got excited watching him transform the look of my fireplace. He allowed me to ask questions as he worked. He was totally professional and very friendly. We even talked a little sports as he worked. When he finished the job it was like WOW! My fireplace looked brand new again. I could not stop looking at it. Casual Glenn made me wonder why I waited so long to get it taken care of. He finished the job in about an hour and asked if I was happy with it. I could not stop saying YES!!! I really could not stop looking at how good it looked. I just kept saying "This looks so good" over and over. He laughed and said that he was glad that I liked it. He cleaned up everything, we shook hands, I took care of the payment and even paid him more because he did a FANTASTIC job! What I liked the most was that he took the time to explain what he was doing along the way and constantly stopped to see if I was happy at each step of the process. Very professional, very skilled at his craft and a very nice hardworking guy. There is no question that I will be calling him again for future work. I like to do my own work but when I have a job that I cannot handle, Casual Glenn will be my first and only phone call. If anyone ever needs a handyman, this is the guy to call. His work is excellent! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND HIM! Thank you for the great job and for your professionalism.

Went great! Replaced wood moulding fit perfectly. The framing on the back door is held in place so that it won't come apart.

Initially chose this company because of the rating it holds. When I contacted them, I found the office staff to be receptive to my questions and very friendly. I made the appointment for several weeks prior to the actual install and was happy that Kate called to remind me of the appointment the day before while ensuring that I had everything the Technician needed to complete the job. This is my first time hiring someone to do a job in my home because I tend to do most projects myself. The Technician, William was exceptionally professional and demonstrated outstanding knowledge and skill which was evident in the finished product. William placed floor coverings down and ensured that every piece of debris was picked up upon finishing. Even my husband was impressed with his work! As soon as I paint the other room, I'd like William to come back and do an additional room for us. Thank you, William and Kate (Wow- Royal names for quality of service fir for Royalty)...Thanks Guys!

Wonderfully! Made our retirement community house's interior look like a custom home. Excellent all around, with expert painting, crown moulding carpentry, and craftsmanship. Especially noteworthy is the attention to detail of Andrea, the owner and supervisor. Loved her design ideas about painting our coffered ceilings and entryway--they look spectacular. She and her crews were always punctual, thorough, cleaned up the work area each day, and completed the work in six days--ahead of what was scheduled. She suggested a design idea to place our many picture frames on special shelves instead of hanging them on the wall, as before. She researched options for shelving, presented her ideas to us, and painted commercial picture frame shelving to match the rest of the walls. The shelves look fantastic! Cost was in line with other craftsmen, but I really think that the quality can't be beaten. I'm really happy with the final product and have already begun to receive compliments from neighbors. We'll definitely recommend Sanfino to our neighbors and not hesitate to have her do work for us in the future.

I have a new construction home but the finishes were poorly done. I was looking to paint the main living areas and Edwin suggested we not only paint the walls but touch up the trim as well to get a quality finished look. His team of workers arrived promptly each day and the first day they layed down paper protection on the hardwoods and tape as they made their way into the house and put plastic on the carpeted areas. They covered all the furniture with plastic without me even asking. They sanded the poorly finishised trim and gave it two coats of paint then did the same to the walls. It looks fantastic. The stairway bannister was not constructed properly and Edwin said knew a carpenter who could fix it. In one day they tore it off, patched it up, measured and cut new pieces of trim and painted several coats on it. It was done by 5pm and it now looks like it should have when I bought it. While he was there my husband wanted the garage floor finished so he worked that in too and it was painted, clear coated and the carpenter trimmed it out with baseboards. He loves it. Edwin always responded to me promptly thru texts and phone calls and his crew was hard working. I’m pretty particular with painters but these guys are fast and they are good; they sand, they caulk and they make straight lines. I have recommended them to 2 family members and one curious neighbor who came over to see what was going on. I will have them back to finish up the bathrooms soon. Highly recommend.

It was wonderful. He did everything except the HVAC and electric work. He put in the insulation, which required extending the rafter widths, installed all of the drywall, did the finish carpentry, put a cedar liner throughout my wrapping room, added mouldings, small doors into lofts, etc. etc. He is clean, nice to have around, and competent.

We called Quality Expectations to fix a damaged floor; and the owner, Darryl Chavez, was very prompt in coming out to give a reasonable estimate. We found Darryl to be very pleasant, professional, and thorough in completing the job. The floor is now quite solid and the hardwood replacement is excellent. He cleaned the work area perfectly. Overall, we could not have asked for better work. Quality Expectations very much exceeded our expectations, and we would certainly use them in the future and recommend them to others.

He did a beautiful job. To avoid covering vents he cut around them when installing base board. Created a baseboard specifically for this. He is worth every penny and I would have him back again and again.

AHIVEX Basement Finishing Co.
We got four estimates before going with this company. The other three salesmen tried to up sale us on all kinds of things like, dimmer switches, power outlets, custom baseboard, concrete work, etc. Dan from Dee Bee did not try to force us to buy anything. He gave great recommendations and did not charge us any extra money for the extra light switches, power outlets, custom baseboard, etc. With Dee Bee, it was all included in the price. Our final price was exactly what the initial estimate was. The work was professional and finished on time. Dee Bee did all the permitting with the county too. I strongly recommend this company for your basement project.

AJOE COX CONSTRUCTION & HANDYMAN
We had a rental home that was occupied for 5 years. When the renters left the house was in such poor shape that we had to remove the kitchen, all 3 1/2 bathrooms and all of the flooring. We decided to completely renovate and move into the home after such a large investment. Accordingly, the "rental grade" finishing were upgraded, we moved walls and generally did a job comparable to "Flip or Flop". The home was in Fredericksburg, Joe is in Burke. When I originally called Joe we hadn't spoken in a few years but he remembered me. He doesn't usually drive to Fredericksburg but I paid him extra to get him to go out there (a 2-3 hour round trip drive) because I trusted him and his work. This is the thrid time we have used Joe for general carpentry work. This time it included building all new walls and drywalling as well. Joe is a true professional - he has very high standards for himself and his work reflects those standards. He communicates effectively meaning there are no surprises - if there is an extra charge he did not quote for he tells you up front. His prices are all inclusive so you will not get extra/hidden charges when using Joe. His prices are very reasonable for the quality of work he performs - he's not the cheapest or the most expensive. He is very clear and careful about making sure the materials he uses are of the first quality. Joe is the only contractor that has the code to my home and I trust him implicitly. I cannot recommend him highly enough. He's coming back to do more work after our floors are in - he will be installing wainscoting and shoe molding.
