We found Jimmy Dollman's company on Angie's list and we selected his company based on the outstanding reviews he had received in the past and the fact that he is a class A, licensed and insured contractor. We aren't risk takers and wanted to make sure that the company we selected was reputable, skilled in the disciplines we needed to complete the job and easy to work with. Jimmy came out to the site and walked over all of the projects we wanted done. He had some great ideas on how to take care of an awkward downstairs guestroom to be used by our grandsons. Although the room was large we were having trouble getting the storage solutions we wanted and 2 twin beds in the room. His idea was to open up an area beneath a staircase that allowed us to tuck a bed and nightstand in to the space. In the family room he and the interior designer he brought with him, Paula Smith Linkhous, came up with the idea of reorienting the family room to a different wall which would feature a new stone fireplace and built in bookshelves and media area. It was a leap of faith for me and we are so glad we did it. Upstairs Jimmy came up with an entirely new layout for our master bathroom and our tiny master closet which gave us an additional 3 feet of closet space, a new vessel tub for me and new corner shower for my husband. We decided to reuse the existing vanity but have it painted to coordinate. The new guest bathroom is handicapped accessible, yet looks like a picture out of a magazine. In fact, everything he and his crew did is very high end. I'm still shocked when I walk downstairs and see the work they did. Everything they did is really gorgeous and exceeded our expectations. The initial bid was a little higher than we wanted to spend and Jimmy was very patient about working through what we wanted to achieve and where we could economize and where we really needed to go higher end like using premium materials for our downstairs flooring and fireplace but using porcelain rather than stone in the bathrooms. He came out often to check on the job and we talked about once a week. He's very funny, easy to deal with and what we especially like is that he really is on top of everything. We had very few issues and those that came up were dealt with immediately without any fuss. The job site was cleaned and vacuumed every night, which was great for us, since we stayed in the house while all of the work was done. His crew, project manager and subs were all top notch. Everything is all about the customer and what is going to work and look the best. As the installation progressed his team came up with some great design ideas, like lowering the shower floor in our guest bath to provide wheelchair access without having to build up a ramp and realigning some of our lighting to give the best effect. It didn't change the cost, but really enhanced the outcome. We especially loved working with Paula Smith Linkous, the interior designer Jimmy brought in, to help us out with layout ideas, tile, finishes and colors. We probably worked with Rob and Gerry Horne the most and we would really like to have them just move in with us. We hate to see them go. They are extremely skilled, personable and yes, they are great with dogs. While they didn't walk them they actually made friends with our three extremely shy rescue dogs. What we learned from this experience is that you get what you pay for. If you want a company you can trust to deliver the very best product based on your budget in a very low stress way then you really can't go wrong with Dollman Construction. Today is the last day of our project and it was delivered on time and on budget. We have a list of future projects that we would like to work with them on and I guess that says it all.
