    DJS Construction
    The job went incredibly well. I couldn't have asked for anything more. Dave was very helpful, knowledgeable, dependable, and professional. His crew was amazing. They worked so hard everyday and did excellent work. I was very grateful to him and his team for the work they did.

    Chris and his apprentice did an excellent job of installing the new fan and connecting it to the existing wall switch, which is what I wanted instead of using a remote. He brought all the equipment he needed and cleaned up after he was finished. He even gave me free advice on how to fix my track lighting, saying "I can show you how to fix it yourself and won't have to charge you for doing the work." I would definitely recommend him.

    Romeo Bravo Handyman
    We had 6 fixtures w/o lights, found out that some also needed the end connectors, but Romeo was able to get at least one pair working in each of these fixtures for the showing the next day. The rest we'll get to another time. Accomplished what we needed. Found out his other skills, will use him for those, upcoming.

    Budget Right Handyman
    I contacted BRH to help me with two projects. The first was to rebuild a cantilevered balcony and expand a master bedroom slightly, the second was to help me with some sliding door replacements and a support beam. The first project never happened. Frankly, BRH is just NOT set-up for, nor capable enough to do the work on multi-discipline jobs that are not just kitchens or baths. Several people came out to bid the job. Each one completely misunderstood it, despite the fact that I had architectural renderings demonstrating exactly what I wanted, and detailed descriptions of the desired fit and finish materials. This wasted a tremendous amount of time and resulted in BRH eventually just ignoring my requests to revise their proposals for accuracy. DO NOT use them for anything with complexity unless it's a kitchen or bath. These guys just want to install windows and hang light fixtures and do basic, uncomplicated one-off projects. There is nothing wrong with that, but don't let them tell you they can do more. I felt they were more appropriate to use for my second project, where I had done most of the prep, all of the demo and parts ordering, and they could just come in and take direction and perform straightforward tasks. I acted as a 'third man' and super on the job, as they helped me lift two very heavy sliders, and a 300 lb. support beam that I picked up and drove to my home. The sliders went in fine. They did a good job. Not great, but good. They'd never installed sliders like mine, but they had definitely installed windows before, so I felt good about their work since I was able to supervise. The support beam went equally smoothly. The electrical was a disaster. I'd called the switchboard several times to make sure, and they guaranteed till the cows came home about how capable their guys are. The guy who did my electrical was a nice guy, but a total hack when it came to electrical. He had to come back 4 times (they estimated 1 day) over a period of a month just to get it working. All he had to do was drop existing wiring 3 inches. Instead of just doin that run by run, he decided to rip it all out and do it "his way." Ugh. Very soon, he couldn't figure it out and spent WAY MORE time than should have been necessary for what I needed. Thank god I wasn't up against an actual timeline, because they made me work around their schedule instead of the other way around. I am STILL finding errors and sloppiness in his work. He lazily ran one conduit UNDER my PVC sink drain instead of going OVER it, where it was originally, which now makes my pipe GO UPHILL! Hello? Gravity? He also made WAY too many junction boxes, sloppily bent the pipe when it needed to bend, put no covers on the junction boxes, improperly wired my smart thermostat (which nearly fried my AC), put caps on wires without twisting them or using tape, ran exposed capped wires, left a mess when he left... the list is long and ridiculous. What bothers me is this is work I was going to do myself. I would have been much slower, but I would have done a FAR better job. The final result was sloppy and dangerous, and the customer service after the job was poor. It was clear they did not wish to continue the job, and they simply stopped returning my calls. I discussed the personnel with my rep several times before they came. I wanted to make sure they had everything they needed when they arrived so that I could get the maximum out of their work days. But all the plans changed on the day of work. I didn't get who they said I would. The way they charge is great (hourly) and the hourly rate is fair. It worked out fine for the doors and the beam, but they destroyed all the cost efficiencies with their bungling electrical work. There's no point in having a fair price if one of your guys is so slow that one small aspect of the job kills the budget.

    Chris is great!!! He had to drill thru brick, remove paneling, and install light. The work was excellent. It looked so much better than I thought it would. I would use this company for all my electrical needs

    Met Bob on site and reviewed the necessary repairs. He completed the work in a timely and professional manner at a very reasonable cost. All work was done to a high standard and we are very pleased with the service. I highly recommend them.

    Anix Inc
    This job started out as a quote for a kitchen renovation on a home that our son purchased. He was busy at work so he gifted me the liberty to choose colors and the trims for the kitchen, bath and bedrooms. The kitchen was pretty antiquated with some 80's oak cabinets and old grungy floor and appliances. He originally budgeted to have this work done before he actually took ownership so that he would have a decent kitchen that he could begin using and update the living room, bath and bedrooms at a later date. He had planned to use another company (I found) to restore the original hardwood floors that were hidden under the old carpet. He would paint the living room and bedrooms and any other updates when he had time. That was the plan. Honest! So when Joe came to give an estimate (he was one of three), we pointed out what our sons needs and wants were and we walked Joe through the first floor to show him what we were working with. We agreed to him taking measurements of the other rooms other than just the kitchen, for possible future work on these areas. When we received the estimate, He had quoted the kitchen renovation with the new cabinets we chose, granite cost was blank because this would be and additional cost based on our choice, other costs included of removal of soffits and updating all electric and plumbing, installing all cabinets, sink, installing and hook up appliances, a new island with cabinet and granite, backsplash, flooring, lighting, painting and trim. In addition, Joe added in the costs for his people to remove carpet, sand and stain hardwood floors, trim and paint the other rooms, add crown moulding/trim and paint to the living room, hall and three bedrooms. He also threw in a very attractive price to tile the bathroom, the tub area, new vanity, lighting, etc. We realized that after putting a pencil to it, that his quote made so much more sense for a few different reasons. 1) While they would be in the empty home demolishing the kitchen and creating a mess, we would have to figure when to have the hardwood floor guy come in between his people. This would have delayed one of these jobs 2) His people do hardwood floors and they were going to do the kitchen floors anyway during renovation. They could transition the wood in the floors between kitchen and living room if necessary and then repair, sand and stain it within their schedule, rather than having someone else do it. The bathroom was a no brainer. The price was good and we jumped on that. So this renovation was for a small ranch home total kitchen, living room, bath and 3 bedrooms. A couple other things: He quoted to install insulation in the attic and replace broken attic fan. I think the quote included a solar vent. We also had him replace two exterior doors and paint them. I'll try to keep this part brief: Joe gave us an estimated start date. After getting permits pulled, his guys started very close to the estimated date. Keep in mind that we were not living in the house during the renovation, so that may have something to do with us having a less stressful in house renovation. During renovation, they realized that some of the walls they were tearing into were plaster and not drywall, it was messy and more time consuming and added a few extra demo days to the schedule. They did it with good humor and no complaints. Joe kept us on board with work updates with daily emails. If we called, he answered his phone. He always got back to us with any changes or questions usually at the end of his day, but always the same day. He was incredibly easy to work with as were his people. They were hard workers, honest, kind and had a work ethic you don't see much anymore. We have had contractors in the past and I have to say, this project gave us very little headache. Maybe it was the communication or the personalities of Joe and his crew, but they were incredibly easy to work with. If there was anything that Joe needed, we tried to get it to him. If we had questions about changing something, his response usually was "whatever you want". If something came up and he needed an answer, we tried to give him one immediately so not to hold up the job. We went out to pick out the granite at his supplier. He emailed us the prices of the our 5 original choices soon after. When we realized our favorite choice was the most expensive, we tried to pick something else that was more cost effective and it turned out to be pretty ugly in person. Joe was very patient (I would have slapped me) while we tried to find something in a color that wasn't on the high end. If he was annoyed, he didn't show it. I'm a bargain shopper and I try to get tile and lighting fixtures at good prices, too. So, we'd drop off the tile and lights and Joe never question choices or quality of anything. His people would put it all together and made it look great! The kitchen and bathroom look really nice. They are as nice, mostly better that all the updated houses we saw while looking at homes with our son to purchase. I will try to upload pictures of before and after on this site. I need to transfer them to this computer first. Joe and his crew can do anything you need done. I was amazed and he's fairly humble in regards to that. He doesn't up charge things and he will give you a quote on anything you need done and it will be your best price, but he doesn't throw jobs in your face. He gives you the best price and best work you'll find. His finishing work is beautiful and his attention to detail is as good as it gets! As for he and his work crew, I would trust them alone with my pets or young children! We will be using him again!!

    Advance Remodeling Corp
    Stan and Mark did a beautiful job of remodeling our kitchen. Always arrived on time, worked efficiently, and cleaned the work area daily. Any problem that came up was taken care of right away, and Stan and Mark were a pleasure to work with. Stan met us at the stone company to help us find the granite for our counter tops, answered all our emails promptly, kept to the schedule and budget, and we felt confident that we had picked the right company for the job. When we first met Stan and I mentioned that I had read so many good reviews for his company, he said "That's because we do good work!". We'd have to agree!

    The Smart Houses Solutions
    Greg has typically been the most reasonable price, and he has a group of the hardest working guys that I've seen.  The quality of finishing is good.  Any issues he usually addresses.  I will continue to use Smart Houses in the future. Sometimes the work takes a bit longer than is quoted, but much of that has been my fault.  There were a couple issues where I had them do some more specialized work such as roofing and metal railings, they were not up to the standard of the rest of their work.  Going forward I will make sure to hire specialists for such type of work or explicitly insure that Smart Houses has done the type of work in the past.  Overall though for 95% of work I am very confident with Smart Houses.

    Hardt Electric Inc
    Excellent. Todd arrived on time, he poked around to determine whether the floor outlet was wired from the wall or if the conduit was run through the floor. Upon finding that the conduit ran through the floor, he explained that the job could be done, but would require several hours of work chipping out concrete s even permitted by the condo association. He replaced the malfunctioning outlet and switch with no problem.
