    Fair & Square LLC
    Flooring ( tile) ceiling, walls, all were done to my satisfaction. It was a large job but it was done in a timely fashion. He even helped with ideas that you would normally have to pay someone to do. It is his creativity I���m talking about. I rated him a B on price. His work is quality and is not cheap. It is fair if you care about your house. Steve Smith

    Round To It Services
    DO NOT hire Joseph T De Marco, owner of Round To It Services. Joe requested $3,500 upfront and another $3,025 after 40 hours of labor and then a final payment of $3,000 after the jobs were complete (total bid for the front deck was $6,250). He began work, by himself, on the April 18, 2016. After about 22 hours of labor (1 week) at our house (he worked on average 5.5 hours a day), he wanted the second installment of $3,025. We discussed what 40 hours meant, and he said part of that 40 hours was his one hour drive to my house, yet even with the drive he only worked about 26 hours. After several more days he brought a guy with him who did not even know how to screw screws into wood. He did not bring this guy back, yet brought another guy who also knew nothing about carpentry. During these couple of weeks, we ran around for him, buying things he needed...we did this to be nice (and we wanted our deck finished), not because he asked, yet when it came time to pay the second installment of $3,025, we had $700 worth of supplies and $300 cash for the license and permit, that we paid for and he did not take that into consideration. He was supposed to supply everything, via contract. After back and forth arguing, and him threatening to take everything down that he put up, we paid him the remainder of the second installment. The inspector stopped by and stated the risers need to be adjusted, and explained how we were to proceed with rail height and use of only stainless components that were visible. I wrote this down and showed Joe. Joe and this second guy worked full days, the last several days. On the final day, they worked till 11 pm using car headlights for light. He said he would come back if the inspector did not approve. The next morning we walked out and were blown away at the horrific job. The rails weren't completely screwed in and not at the code heights, the spindles were not attached on the bottom, the spindles were various lengths. When the inspector came, a day later, on May 11th, he emailed a report to Joe and myself...there were many issues. In addition to what the inspector noticed, our risers were falling apart due to boards being taken off and reapplied several times, the wood is split in many areas, there are several areas with multiple drill holes through posts, one of the risers was cut 1/8" from the edge, about a foot long and 6 inches deep, with a hacksaw... I could go on and on. Joe has not contacted us at all, and at this point it has been two weeks. We had another company look at the "mess" and it will cost us $2,200, to get it fixed. All 10 risers, step treads, and face plate need to be torn down and redone. So now our front steps are costing us close to $10,000...WOW, I could have had an elevator installed. I made Joe go get a city permit and license...Joe kept telling my husband that I told him not to...really?...if someone tells you not to get a driving license do you drive without one? If you own a business and someone tells you you not to get a business license, do you? Further we gave him $300 cash to purchase the permit , license and money for his time. Again, DO NOT HIRE JOE DE MARCO!!!

    I can���t say enough about this couple, hard working, honest and reliable. Katie was so good at calling, texting and sending photos. They never cut corners and did an excellent job. Would highly recommend them and would use again.

    Condo Care
    Condo Care works deligeny to get the jobs done in a timely manner and they charge a very fair price for the service. With the help of Condo Care and the owner Dan it is easy for me to manage my rental property if I am in Gulf Shores or if I am a thousand miles away. I highly recommend the service to anyone who rents out their vacation rental in the Gulf Shores/Orange Beach area.

    We wanted to remodel our newly purchased condo but didn't think we'd be able to afford all the projects we had in mind because of the limitations of our budget. A couple of local contractors in Gulf Shores had estimated a minimum cost of $40,000. We contacted Help-Around-the-House based on favorable Angie's List reviews and found that they more than live up to their great reputation. Dan Parks and his team worked closely with us from start to finish, not only helping us to stay within our budget but also coming up with ideas that were better than what we originally had in mind. All of the work was of high quality, yet it was done amazing fast.  We couldn't be more satisfied with the final result.  We definitely recommend Dan Parks and the Help-Around-the-House team to anyone who wants high quality work done at a fair price.

    We are doing updates on our Gulf Shores condo which is on the market. I contacted Ray and he promptly arranged to come out to give an estimate. He is knowledgeable and made sensible recommendations. After I dropped off the deposit, he had Brenda come out to get an idea of the job required, and she was back at 8 am the next day to get started on the painting. I felt comfortable leaving the lockbox code, as I had to return home to Mobile. Another painter (Davy?) called to let me know there was a second area on the ceiling that needed a repair, as well as some water damage around two windows. I gave the OK to proceed. By Friday afternoon, Brenda called to let me know that everything was complete. ��
    The work was done beautifully and completed within a week from the time I first contacted Ray. I felt that Brenda went above and beyond, and had great pride in her work. This seems like a very busy company, and I can understand why. ��We will likely have another job within a month or so, and I won't hesitate to call them. ��I especially like the fact that they truly can do it all - painting, plumbing, electrical work, plus anything else required.
    We were extremely pleased.

    Steve Jones Contractor
    Contractor prepared a sketch of the work to be done, used it to get the permit and to get the HOA approval. Work began on time, good materials were used, and completed promptly. Contractor is a very good communicator and manager of resources. Very pleased with the work.

    Jack and his partner were awesome! They responded to our initial call within hours, came the very next day, and worked consistently. The work done was perfect, and my husband and I are so pleased. We will definitely be calling Jack again for future jobs.

    Steve Jones Contractor
    Steve noticed a structural problem with our patio foundation where the water was not running off properly, so he was able to pour new concrete and correct this matter. Steve also advised us on a lower level foundation for our pool room in the event flooding occurred this lower leveling would prevent potential flood damage in our home. We had many challenges building around a 12 ft L X 7.5 ft W swim spa, but Steve always exceeded our expectations even when faced with difficult challenges. Steve and his crew are professional, honest, caring, and very reliable. Now days, it is difficult to find someone who provides quality work and genuinely cares by going the extra mile to make customers happy, but Steve continuously demonstrated these attributes. Steve and his crew did a fantastic job and we recommend him for any construction project.

    First, the positive. If you have a small project (hang a TV on a wall) this service provider may be ok. But be sure your project can be finished in one day and BEWARE the comments below.

    Big Negatives: Seven months after starting the project Mr. Parker walked off the job, unfinished. I had to hire other painters to finish the work and to re-do some of the work because of the horrible quality. See photo of paint job on front door below. It bubbled and peeled. Mr. Parker saw the bubbled paint every time he showed up to work for weeks and weeks, and never corrected it. Just walked off the job.

    I had to spend hundreds of dollars to have the paint removed and a new paintjob put on the door.

    Mr. Parker is very unprofessional. He will walk inside your home, without warning or invitation, {when his work for that day is outdoors).

    READ THIS: Perhaps most disturbing is the fact that Mr. Parker found an old tag for our dog, with our old address on it. He used GOOGLE Maps or GOOGLE Earth to look up the old address and reviewed an aerial view of the property (and street view) and then asked us questions about the property! This is both unprofessional and creepy. Reading a dog's old tag, and looking up the prior residence. Seriously?

    Also be advised that Mr. Parker considers one or more large condominium complexes to be his bread and butter, so if they call with a bunch of TVs to hang or light fixtures or fans to replace he will do that work preferentially to whatever you may have hired him to do. As far as I know, Mr. Parker does not have an electrical license, so I wonder if a commercial (for rent) condominium complex manager should be hiring Mr. Parker to do electrical work. Seems to me if there was ever an electrical shock or fire, the condominium manager would have big legal problems for using a person without an electrical license to do the work. This assumes Mr. Parker does not have an electrical license, which I believe to be true.

    Mr. Parker made no effort to make the work right, he did not finish the job, and the last draw he took on the job was partially for materials, but he returned the materials and kept the cash (as he walked off the job).

    By next week the other painters I have hired to finish the job and correct the shoddy work, will be done. At that point I will know the extent of my damages. I will be seeking those damages from Mr. Parker.

    I am also aware that Mr. Parker likes to respond to negative posts about him on Angie's List (one of the many things he liked to and quot;chatand quot; about when he should have been working). I will be more than happy to respond to any such retort from Mr. Parker.

    In a nutshell: Not recommended, unless you want a TV hung on the wall and then be very careful.
