    Handyman Connection - Phoenix
    After waiting over a week for a response I finally called them to find out why the quote was taking so long. They replied that my three small projects were "beyond their scope" and gave me referrals to other contractors. I wanted a doggy door put in which they advertise that they do. I wanted molding put along my cabinets at the top of the ceiling and I wanted a small linen closet tore out and dry walled up. If these are beyond their scope than what do the actually do? Especially when they advertise that they can do what I was requesting!!!!!

    Couldn't have gone better starting with the receptionist who promptly answers the phone, answers questions, schedules work, explains the process to the workmen who show up on time, perform all work as agreed upon and cleans up their mess.

    Cactus Valley Homes LLC
    Work completed with in agreed time frame with minimal disruption to living in remainder of home. Only difficulty was not having a functional kitchen sink for the Thanksgiving holiday but everything went well with guests and dinner because contractors got range and refrigerator back in place to for the event. Finished kitchen looks great!

    Contractor performed high quality work and met all agreed upon completion dates. Some minor delays due to illness but homeowner kept informed of reasons for delay. Business owner very considerate of clients needs and met all expectations.

    McCurdy Construction
    I have been in construction of one type or the other for over 40 years and I now realize what a 5-Star company should be, from the initial estimator (Greg S) to project manager (Tom B) and the onsite foreman (Rob) , the professionalism, the expertise and the drive to produce a product as close to perfection as possible, they never wavered from start to end. We are thinking of more renovations in the future and they will be our first call, I would not hesitate to recommend nor refer this company, a truly wonderful experience. You will not be disappointed

    Lon and his team were great! Even though the job was just before the holidays, they coordinated the work so there was almost no "dead time." Right after the demo, they laid enough tile so we could have a working toilet. Everything about the work was top notch, and the products they used were top of the line.

    RSJ Construction LLC
    He gave us a bid $62000 for the entire project, with $2000 down. We hired him on January 23, 2016. After 1 week of work, he said he overlooked the "garage" and "family room", so he asked us for another $7000 for framing. Then he said he didn't see the plumbing was not up to code, so he asked us to pay more to the plumber (from $3300 to $6000). A week later, he said the electrical bid was not accurate, so electrical increased from $3500 to $7600. After the third week, he would just show up 3-4 days per week, working about 6 hours per day. He took a week off here and there to go to Alaska. Then for about a month, he didn't do anything, saying, "The truss is backordered, and I can't do anything about it." In June, he said framing was all done, so he asked us for final framing payment. Until that point, we had already paid him $40,000 for demolition, foundation, and framing. Then he said he would do other things for free i.e. installing solar tubes, crickets for room, and make a wall for the office if we would annul the contract and hire the subcontractors directly. Otherwise, he would have to charge us an additional 15-20%. He said the project is 2/3 done, so we would save more money in paying subcontractors directly. We found out later from ROC inspector that project is not considered 60% done until after drywall, insulation, electrical, and plumbing. Then when we hired the subcontractors to finish work he said he couldn't "do", every subcontractor complained how work was not done properly, and we had to pay them extra to fix the frame. Now we have spent more than +$100,000, and the project is still not done, though he guaranteed work will be done at the latest 6 months. During demolition phase, our electrical went out. He took out our RV gate and our basketball pole, and they are still not replaced to its original condition; Richard disposed our RV gate without double checking with us. On September 26, we found there was a huge leakage from the upstairs bathroom, and it ruined our newly installed wood floors. If he tells you to pay subcontractors directly, do not fall for it. If anything goes wrong (even if he did refer the subcontractors to you), you cannot make him liable for any damage. Make sure in the contract he is liable for all subcontractor's work. His bid was to do what was in the plan permitted by the city. When we complained to BBB, his response was that his bid was for a "partial addition", which was never disclosed to us since the beginning. The electrician, concrete, plumber, and carpet installer he referred all did not do proper job. Electrician did not install GCFI for external outlets (against code, which we did not know until recently). Plumber did not caulk toilet, which caused the leak and ruined our wood floor; not only so, plumber wanted to charge an additional $1000 more than original bid to install toilets and sinks, which was required to pass city inspection. Carpet installer left holes on our drywall. Garage installer did not finish casings. Person who did the concrete for our foundation did not level all the floors. After we paid them in full, none of them came back to fix the damages, except plumber because he did not want ROC involved. If it wasn't for ROC's involvement, Richard would not have disposed the construction debris (which he only did minimally so inspector is off his case), fix the stairs (which could have caused major falls that we could have been liable for), nor try to "finish" the construction; he only did minimally to pass city inspection. Subcontractors who came to finish his work complained that wood he used for framing was low quality because it had cracks, and the poles were crooked. Also, doors were not standard size and some swung the wrong way. During construction process, we told him we need to add an additional bathroom, wall, and kitchen. On BBB, he said the additional wall created two additional "bedrooms" (how could it be a bedroom when there is no closet or window?!) He also said that these additions will "delay" construction, so he advised us to do after inspection. When our house couldn't appraise, we found out from city that any changes to plans need permission from city, which he did not do nor advise us to do. We had to do the work of getting the permit ourselves, and it wasn't much work; he simply didn't want to do it, and the advice he gave us was illegal. You will know whether or not we tell you the truth if you look up his license number on ROC's website. The complaints will only be there for 2 years because he tried to make corrections. His corrections were minimal, just enough so he wouldn't get a citation or license revocation from ROC. We still had to pay $450 to dispose construction debris and hire additional people to finish painting, baseboards, and casings (which he said he would do but did not). This did not include finishing the grading, which we were not informed at all, until ROC inspector told us about it; however, we could not get him to do the work because we had "released him from responsibility" by agreeing to pay the subcontractors directly. He charged us sales tax, when he was not supposed to. He said job was to be done at most 3 months; job began in February but did not finish until November. We have paid all of our subcontractors IN FULL, and the decent ones appreciate us; those who did a poor/sloppy/unfinished job (ones he mentioned in response to our BBB review), we would probably need to take them to court to get our money back. We didn't have to go find our own subcontractors if he did his job as a general contractor; with our lack of experience and expertise, we did make mistakes in hiring a few bad subcontractors, but the few good ones were all very happy with us. We hope this review helps future homeowners; we were very stressed out throughout this process. We have all proper documentations, emails, and paperwork to prove to you what we said is true. I won't have time to post all pictures and paperwork because there are too many to post. We only left comments on BBB but have not filed a complaint yet. Once we have more time to gather all the documentation, we will probably supply them to BBB, court, and city for review.

    Smart Systems Plus Inc
    Dealing with Smart Systems has been an absolute nightmare for the past 3 years. We had this company install garage cabinets when we bought our home. The company sent an idiot who was more interested in blasting heavy metal music in our home than actually installing the cabinets correctly. Within 2 months the doors starting popping off due to stresses incurred from the faulty installation. We have replaced 4 or 5 doors and recently had 2 more break off. We have called the company on several occasions to no avail. Some completely ignorant elderly lady answers the phone and keeps repeating over and over "The doors just don't fall off". We have yet to hear from the owner of Smart Systems because there appears to be a disconnect between this person answering a phone and actually writing down a message. As a business owner myself I know the value of customer service. Let's hope the owner of this company takes note of this and responds to this review as well as correct the problem with our cabinets. Shame on Smart Systems and their complete Customer Service melt down.

    Marius if really busy so it took awhile to get done but was worth the wait as his workmanship is the best. I would use him again. He also did some work to frame in my microwave. I am really happy with the outcome. Top rate work.

    MTS PAINTING
    Company was more professional than several others that I had given SOW to for bid.  I realized after their bid and work description that I was being unreasonable in today's market with my anal retentive engineer's detail work.  So in the 3 week interim from bid to scheduled painting I did most of the scrape, sand, and caulk work myself so their 2 day job then became a one day job.
    Their owner and staff are very professional and the job was done well.  They later discounted the $1900 agreed bid to $1500 when billing after seeing how much prep work I had pre accomplished.  They did this on their own with no request from me...very classy.
