Recent Review: Jerry lives across the street from our house, so he readily worked with us the whole way through the project to minimize the time we wouldn't have a functioning kitchen. He also worked well with the subcontractors we used. LOTS of drywall work, and he did a good job of limiting the impact of dust on the rest of the house. The kitchen was completely gutted, the coat closet back and side wall was removed (a tricky part of the whole project), transforming the hall coat closet to the place where the refrigerator would be in the new configuration. The doorway from the kitchen to the office/computer room was drywalled over, as was the hall doorway to the now-defunct coat closet. Then the kitchen was re-built with new appliances, new countertops, new flooring, and lots of new electrical outlets. Jerry took down the 48" fluorescent lights and replaced them with recessed lighting. The stove and overhanging microwave oven were switched from one wall to another. The end result is a kitchen with a much more efficient arrangement of appliances and more cabinet space / countertop work area. Since we lost the coat closet to the kitchen re-design, Jerry took the computer/room office wall adjoining the kitchen and built us two side-by-side closets, the one closest to the front door/hallway is our new coat closet, and the one farther away is our new office area. With the new coat closet and office area that can be closed off with bi-fold doors, the former office/computer room is now our lovely library / reading room. Jerry replaced the vanity in the powder room nestled up under the stairs with a pedestal sink and new low-flo commode. He finished off the powder room by hanging a wallpaper that gives the look of painted-over wood paneling. Very elegant. Jerry finished up by putting down 2+ coats of paint on everything. Jerry and his helpers (when he needed them) were professional, polite, and very accommodating, cleaning up after themselves every evening. Their services were very reasonably priced. I would gladly use them again in the future... and very likely will, as we have more project in the wings waiting to get started..
Recent Review: Beautiful product, good prices. Only issue was a delay in shipping of several weeks due to inventory. This delay caused issues with scheduling on a whole-house renovation and it would have been quite useful to know about upfront, rather than having to call them repeatedly for updates. When the flooring finally arrived, weeks late, it was beautiful and in very good shape. I would use them again, but I would order much earlier than needed to allow for any delays.
Recent Review: I love it it makes my rooms look new with just new floors..the personal that work for the company were very nice and helpful and the gentleman that installed my floor was FABULOUS. I said it was high in price but all great things seem to come with a high price tag.
Recent Review: Bassett Home Services was one of two handyman companies we asked for estimates on a small pantry remodel. We went with Greg Bassett because he called back promptly to schedule an appointment for the estimate, arrived on time, asked questions in a manner that showed he understood what we wanted, and provided a quick and reasonable estimate. Greg and his two assistants arrived promptly on the day scheduled for the project and completed it on time. What especially distinguished Greg in our view, however, was his response when it turned out that the flooring we had ordered turned out to be unsuitable for the all-weather conditions of our pantry. That flooring, which Greg and his crew had glued down per the manufacturer's directions, began to separate and form air bubbles within 24 hours of installation. Greg returned promptly when we advised him of the problem and consulted the same day with the flooring provider to determine what had gone wrong. He returned with samples of a similar flooring that did not require glueing, got our OK, and returned to the shop to order it. When the new flooring arrived a week later, Greg called to schedule installation the next day. He declined our offer to pay for part or all of the replacement flooring. In short, Greg Bassett demonstrated first-class professionalism from beginning to end. He is first on our list for future home projects.
Recent Review: Professional from start to finish. The floors were in less than desirable condition with paint and pet stains and Jeff and crew made the floors look new again! Very pleased with natural finish; even the new oak planks were toothed in flawlessly and match the rest of the floor. Very neat- no cleanup for us.
Recent Review: Troy did what he promised, kept me informed and solved the inevitable complications that arose. He did the work quickly, and in a cost effective and conscientious manner. Everything was cleaned up and hauled off before completion. My wife and I are very pleased with the result.

They did not arrive until after 12pm every day. We have young kids and asked that they be gone by 5pm everyday for dinner and bedtime routines. Their showing up at 12pm, meant they had to either work past 5pm, or come back for longer. The job took 5 days. On the second to last day they did not leave our house until almost midnight. They drank our beer in garage (which we didn’t realize until we saw cans sitting all over the place), took multiple smoke and phone breaks and just sat out there for long periods of time. Our house was left a complete mess which required me to spend hours removing glue from the wood floors, door handles, and bathroom sink. They left glue buckets and other trash all over the garage. Debris was everywhere in our home as they did not to prevent this (dust from sawing, etc.). He ended up redoing the first room he did, at our request because they just floated the wood and it was terrible (not their fault). At the time of discussion he said he didn’t want to charge us anymore. We took this to mean there would be no charge. The night before the job ended my husband gave them a check for the agreed upon amount. He then emailed and texted me (the wife) the next day, saying my husband “forgot” to pay him the $250 for pulling up the floor and glueing it. We went back and forth multiple times discussing the fact that he did not “forget” and that Chad has never clearly expressed to us that there would be additional costs for this. Especially considering all the cleanup WE had to do All in all the floors look good. The quarter round on the walls not so much. It’s not fully nailed down in all areas, there are splintered ends, and it just looks like a quick halfass job. We are happy our floors are done, but would not use their service again:

They were responsive and accurate. They were certainly on time. There were no hidden costs. I spent about $9000 to $10000. The flooring and carpeting looks excellent and it's holding up very well. My experience has been excellent. Their price was good. The quality of work was very good. They were very punctual and professional. I would use them again in the future.

When the first attempt to remove stains did not fully restore the floor, the company owner himself returned and the floor is now like new. This is a company that believes in -- and delivers -- excellent service.

?Wonderful experience with Sheaves Flooring! They came to my rescue after two prior horrible experiences with floor installation, a small contractor (Troy Bilt Counstruction) in 2011 and most recently with Home Depot. I was very anxious and afraid to get into another contract with yet another contractor, but Jeff was very responsive to my call for his services and helped me feel at ease and confident that Sheaves Flooring is a very professional and quality oriented company. Jeff helped me to decide on the best flooring and provided fair pricing. He scheduled me as quickly as possible and best of all, they did an amazing job! My new floor looks wonderful!! I am very pleased with their work and have already contracted them to replace the flooring in another area of my home. I highly recommend them.

FANTASTIC! MARK & BOB WERE VERY PROFESSIONAL & COURTEOUS INSTALLERS. THEY DID AN OUTSTANDING JOB & LEFT OUR PLACE CLEAN WHEN THEY WERE FINISHED. FRANK R IS A GREAT SALES REP & WAS VERY PATIENT WITH US. I WILL DEFINITELY DO BUSINESS WITH THEM IN THE FUTURE. (MY FLOOR IS SO NICE, I WANT TO GET A SLEEPING BAG & SLEEP ON IT TONIGHT!)

I really enjoyed working with Jeff. I initially called to have my floors refinished, but were unable to do so because of the type of floors and the severity of discoloration. We were able to choose some very nice darker wood floors that were installed over the old (that had been glued directly to the slab). The floors look great! Jeff oversaw all the work himself and was able to work our project in really quickly before our move. I am very happy with how it all turned out and will be calling him back for more work in the future.

Mr. Pollard was wonderful to work with! After getting multiple estimates, we found that his pricing was very reasonable and he was able to fit our project into his schedule in a timely manner. Our door had some rot and driving rain had been seeping in, so we had to have the door replaced and the floor repaired. Mr. Pollard was very upfront with us, letting us know that he didn't have a lot of tile experience but that he was trying to gain more and felt very comfortable tackling this small space. His honesty and confidence convinced me, and he did a FANTASTIC job! He did a thorough job in the repairs and I would never have guessed that he had limited experience in tiling- it was perfect. He was spot-on in his estimate of the time frame needed for the repairs and was always punctual. He gave me a range of how much he anticipated the work to cost, and the final cost ended up being on the low end of that range. He was very friendly and personable, but also stayed focused on completing the job at hand. It's obvious that he really does value quality work- he says he's a perfectionist and I can see that for sure. I would recommend his services to anyone and will call him again in a heartbeat when I need a job done around the house. I highly recommend considering him!

Easy Renovations did a great job with our home makeover helping us to prepare for selling our home. They gave us competitive quotes, and got the job quickly. They were very professional, extremely knowledgeable and did a fantastic job. Down to every tiny detail, their craftsmanship was beautiful! I highly recommend Easy Renovations and will use them again for my next project!

Tom was very professional and takes great pride in the quality of his work. He completed the job on schedule and on quality. Tom replaced flooring on my mother's condo with hardwood floors, repaired flooring in one of the bathrooms, and helped complete misc items that were left as part of the kitchen remodel. He clearly takes pride in the quality of his work and has results to show for. The work was of great craftsmanship and we are very happy with the quality. As many have commented he is not the least expensive, but the assurance that the work will be done to our expectation, quality, and schedule was more important.
