"After the flood, my finished basement was down to the studs. I was sad and tired from having contacted so many firms (one tld me they would not get to me until 2.5 months later).

built a living space that was more amazing then before the flood! The punctuality, responsiveness, and cleaniness of the entire crew was appreciated. The new ideas for subtle improvements were things I didn't even think I would like as much as I do now.

helped me stay on target for my goal date and cost. Most of all, they understood how important it was to me that no one got hurt as a result of the flood. A great team to work with in my home.

"The estimator came on time and spent about an hour taking measurements and talking to me about the project. I did not receive an estimate. I followed up with them and they assured me that they would send an estimate but it never arrived.

) did an exceptional job on our home and we could not be happier. The bathroom is beautiful with new marble, frameless glass, new vanity. We live in an older home and

helped us to identify some ways that we could maximize the space in our bathroom by moving the toilet to a new location and installing a pocket door.
All the work that was completed looks amazing. The team is very talented with a lot of years of experience and knowledge. This was a big job and I was really impressed with the ability for it to run as smoothly as it did, remain on schedule and on budget. The team was always on time, dependable and stood behind their work to the fullest extent.

will ensure that the homeowners are 100% happy and this really meant a lot to us. We could not ask for more and will without a doubt use

for future home improvement projects. He has already done projects for my parents and sister and everyone has been extremely happy.
In terms of the price, they are not the cheapest - however, when doing work in your home, it is an investment and you do not want the cheapest bid as you will ultimately get what you paid for. That being said, the quote was extremely competitive and I found reasonable, especially given the amount of time and work performed.
As I said the team is really great and has a tremendous amount of skill in home improvement and knowledgable about all aspects of the job. This is NOT a general contractor who is essentially going to come in and give a bid and then outsource all aspects of the job to another company and essentially only perform a project management function.

and the team are great and appreciate all of their help to make our home beautiful.

"Please see the first box as well, a lot of this is there. Please be aware that the following account is as per my perspective and experience in this incident. From the beginning he told me that he would not take any money until the job was done and I was happy with the work. But about half way through the period that it took him to do this small job,in the early morning about 0730, he arrived to my house, parked his van behind my garage door (I found this when I tried to leave), uninvited, unexpected, & not scheduled to be there then at that time. He was using the garage door key-pad code (now disabled) to come & go when he was there. Anyway, he came in the house, through the garage as described in the previous sentence, unexpected & uninvited, and now saying he wanted to be paid two-thirds of the quote price. He had my car blocked in, I could not leave.
The final thing I would like to inform you of is the following account: During the initial interview and estimate meeting for the renovation, I talked about some other things I wanted to have done in the house, after the bathroom job was completed. Anyway, in the initial interview & estimate meeting, I showed him the other bathrooms and some other areas that needed work done, which I planned to address later on, after the hall bathroom renovations were done. I ended up not contacting him to do this work. Also, just so you know, during the weeks he was in my home, he would, at times, let our dog out to toilet and then let her back in. And I cannot say with certainty that this man is the person who did what I am about to describe. On a Thursday evening about 3-4 weeks ago now, I came home to find our little dog wet, almost dripping; she was kind of cowering on the floor & was foaming at the mouth, as she does when she is really upset. When I picked her up, I could smell it: it was urine. This little dog had urine on her head, face, and front legs. I wrung it out of her hair!! She had to have been held in place while the person did this!! I carried her upstairs to the main living level to give her a bath. I found urine on the floor in the hall bathroom that had been renovated. Also, I found urine on the floor in the shower of the master bathroom.

provided us with a on-site price when he first assessed the job, and kept to that figure. We were not in a hurry but there was some confusion about the start date - better communication on both sides would have helped.

We already had a good idea of what we wanted, but once the space was opened up, we did make some changes to the layout, which he readily adapted to. As our house is approx. 70 years old, there were a few surprises and issues which were all addressed easily by his skilled team.

does not use extensive plans but his judgement and experience enables him to deal with changes and surprises without fuss and the outcome was fantastic.

The demo was done in a day, and the entire project was completed in three weeks. This also included the building of two new closets in the bedroom, which were done for an additional cost - well below what it would have cost if done as a stand alone project.

The custom shower glass took an additional three weeks, but this was out of
Wilmington Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
's control. If you wanted a more rapid completion you should use standard glass shower enclosure systems.

We do a lot of remodeling ourselves but did not have the time for this re-construction project. We are very happy with the outcome.

"All these projects went very smoothly.
Biggest problems were with the county inspectors for the garage.
o
Wilmington Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
professionally worked through the small troublesome areas with county personnel
o Since the concrete pad was put in 2 years before and the "frostline" depths were now in question,
Wilmington Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
had their Structural Engineer review the pad design. The engineer endorsed it as a very
well done concrete pad, thus meeting the county requirements to the county's satisfaction.

employ workers that are happy, pleasing and "down to earth"
During garage building the electrician noted by my rebuilt 1978 Chev Blazer.
I told him it was ready for painting but the rear lights don't work.
He said, "I fix them for you." He worked on hour on completing fixing the "Blazer lights"
Got all the lights working and would not accept any payment for his precious time.

"I wouldn’t recommend him and would like to warn others not to use him. It was not a very good experience. The end looks all very nice but if I wasn’t home. During the construction he had to cut a load bearing wall and he was trying to tell me that it wasn’t a real load bearing wall because it carried the storage area of the bobbin not the whole floor. If I wasn’t home, he wouldn’t have put the header in it. I made him put a header in there. There were also other things like he wasn’t going to vent the microwave properly and it was just kind of a nightmare. He didn’t know how to do some things very well and he was going to have somebody else to do some of the other things like the crown molding but then at the end he did it. He cut the piece wrong and it was special ordered and then we had to wait couple weeks for the piece to come back in. I used him through Direct Pie and it was somebody that they recommended. He is a really nice person and anytime I sort of argued with him to do something right, he would eventually do it right but I had to be here every day all day long. I think it took them eight weeks. He came and gave us an estimate and told us that he worked with his son. He meant to tell that it was a full time thing but he finally worked with him on Tuesdays as he was a college student at that time. So he was here by himself. He was a local guy and I was more than happy to spend money and hire a local guy as money goes to the local economy. He was like a friend of the lady who designed our kitchen and I was fine with that. I think that it was kind of economic thing that I had to give him a portion of money upfront to have him start the job which was fine as to buy materials and everything. I think when he got certain parts of our job, he didn’t have the money to buy some of the materials and I think he was a really nice guy. It wasn’t a pleasant experience. He wrote the contract wrong and he tried to get more money out of me. I wouldn’t recommend him to somebody new a lot about construction and how things were supposed to be done correctly. He had plans from Direct Pie about all the measurements and he was asking me to help him with the measurements. It wasn’t good a she was supposed to call the Direct Pie asking about the measurements and how to figure out the walls. I thought the price was fair. The overall looks fairly nice at the end but I

’t know what he did wrong inside like the wiring. I think he knew how to do things correctly but I had to argue with him to do it correctly because it would have been couple more bugs out of his pocket even though I paid the money. I think he didn’t have money and so he had to do things putting money out of his pocket. So he wasn’t that very professional. I wouldn’t use him again in the future.

"He didn't actually come out to do the work, but he came out for an estimate. I thought that his estimate was reasonable. It was fair

value. I thought he was honest and reasonable. He gave good suggestions about moving things around in the kitchen. I really liked him. We chose him, so we will see how well the whole remodel goes."

"He gave me a quote for his labor, but he also said that I should get my own cabinets. He didn't know anything about the cabinets. He didn't sound like he wanted to do our kitchen. He sounded like he did bathrooms more than anything. He didn't give us a written quote. We didn't feel like he would be there. We ended the process and never heard back from him. He left us up in the air. He acted like he was going to get back to us, but he never did. He seemed nice, but he was about average. He was very quick to respond. I also believe he was on time. However, I didn't find him to be that professional."
