    Holiday Creations Pro Inc
    I called for a proposal and estimation of installing permanent outdoor holiday lights for my house, easy to make appointment and a representative shows up on time with samples and plans, very professional, but the price is beyond my budget.

    Holiday Creations Pro Inc
    Dave Dilger, from Holiday Creation, was professional, courteous, pleasant and produced a beautiful design for my house.  The cost was high, but the design looked was perfect.  I told him what I wanted changed and we settled on a design.  Within 10 days, workers came to decorate my house.  One problem was that they kept knocking on the front door and asking what was suppose to be done.  Finally, I printed out the design picture of the house on my printer and handed it to them.  The workers did two major things wrong;  the large tree in front was supposed to be decorated to the TO THE TOP (as shown in the picture).   Even after I called, and a second group of workers returned, they could not reach the top.  The representative, Dave, agreed it should be to top, but I gave up calling to have it altered. Holiday Creations should have used a cherry picker instead of long poles.  The poles seemed to be too short to ever reach the top, even when the workers stood on a ladder with a pole.  Second, the garland was suppose to be wrapped 5 times around the front columns near front door.  The first set of workers wrapped the garland sloppily THREE times around.  When they returned to fix this, it did get done.  A third thing also occurred;  the timer for the front of the house was set 20 minutes before the other timer, which controlled the rest of the house.  This happened when the workers came out for the second time to work on the front tree.  I didn't complain as it was almost Christmas.
    Finally, the company said they would start taking down Christmas lights Jan. 2nd.   Three weeks after that, my husband and daughter asked me to call as they were embarressed by the lights, since everyone around us had stopped having lights by Jan. 9.  I called and workers did come to my house within days.
    The wreath supplied in my package, when put on my house was far too small.  So, when I first called, Dave Dilger upgraded the wreath to a 4 ft. wreath without cost.  He also assured me that the work would be fixed and shouldn't have been left as it was.  I have not called HC yet, but when when pre-paying, I am going to request that we take care of the wreath and ask if they wanted to alter the price, or decorate something else.
    Everyone associated with the office and Dave Dilger genuinely wanted to have top notch work done, were very helpful in retictifying anything which wasn't right, and overall I enjoyed my experience with the company and look forward to having moving my house decorated next year.  I learned that I needed to follow the workers and check the work out before they leave, and that if anything needs to be fixed, changed, etc., I must followup with Dave and/or the office staff everyday until it is to my satisfaction.  When I was dealing with Dave or the office staff, I felt confident that the work would get done properly.  However, their workers weren't as professional and meticulous as I had hoped.

    America's Best, Inc
    I called America's Best when I saw the daily deal on Angie's list.  I was real happy with the price of $50 per guy per hour, because the other options were to do it myself (I don't like getting on the roof anymore and hanging lights) or go with the companies that want $1000 and up to decorate the house.  So, I bought the deal and made an appointment.  The day they were scheduled to come, I l stretched out all of the lights on the roof next to the places they were going to be installed along with bags of clips to hang them.  My idea was one guy would be on the upper roof and the other on the lower and they would be able to knock it out in 1 hour.  I was not there when they arrived, but when I arrived home, the team that was sent out was 1 guy with his wife and mother.  The mother was on the ground holding a bag of clips, the wife was on the ground watching and the guy was on the roof installing the clips and lights.  The job ended up taking a little over 2 hours because he was the only one installing.  I did give him the extra money because I figured he would not be paid by the company and I would ask them for a refund on the money that was paid to them through Angie's List.  They did end up refunding me for the extra hour.  I think the concept is great and they could really do a lot of business, but they need to train people better and send out teams that work efficiently.  I am also concerned about liability if anyone were to be injured while performing the work.
