    Bak Brothers, Inc.
    It went better than we could ever imagine. They explained what they would do in detail and did what they said. We weren't sure about how to do the gable and they gave us several suggestions. We changed our mind during the construction to go with one of their earlier suggestions. No problem, and they were very responsive. It turned out great. We have gotten lots of compliments from our neighbors. They were clean, friendly, on time and did a great job.

    Cartage Home Remodelers Inc
    It was a emergency situation with a family member coming home from re-hab institute who was going to be discharged sooner than expected, i contacted Cartage remodeling company ( i had used them once before) Maria came the next day took measurements and set up a date. Maria and her husband Christopher are amazing team. They are honest and hardworking couple. They keep close eye on the work and work schedule and visit the site at the end of the day to see if everything went well. continue texting to keep their costomer informed. Work was done 7 days a week, sometimes as late as 8-9pm because of the dead line, as a disabled person had to be accommodated. Masrer bedroom carpet was removed, wood floor was put in. Baseboard was changed, vent covers were replaced. Bathroom was totally demolished. New dry wall, electric work, plumbing, bathroom size was widened as much as it could be done, door was made wheel-chair excessible. They have great team working for them. Oh i should also mention this after the work was done they send a cleaning lady to clean the place. Thank you Maria n Christopher. God Bless you.I will definitely go with them again and again.

    ACCURATE CONSTRUCTION
    Sound issues prior to the work completion can be located here:  www.tinyurl.com/CondoNoise
    Prior to the work, Jeremy and I met to discuss my noise issue.  At that time he explained everything that he would do and the extent to which the noise could be remediated.  He explained everything he could do from my unit (as outlined above,) and said that he should be able to get an 80-90% reduction in the noise.  
    Jeremy and his crew were fantastic. They arrived in a timely manner, performed all the work, and kept me appraised of the process as it went along.  His crew encountered one minor issue, in that the unit above me has 2 layers of subfloor, which is still causing some squeeking, and there is no way to address that issue from below. (It was clear that all of the main subfloor was shimmed, glued, and not moving at all.)  That said, the noise is definitely much better.  
    The work is now complete and I am back in my home looking forward to living in my space again.

    Budget Right Handyman
    I bought the deal of $220 work for $110. When I received the confirmation, it said 2 hours work for $110. Matt asked me to send pictures of the job so hr could estimate it properly. He sent an email back saying that it looked like 4 hours work at their "Discounted" rate of $55/hour. 
    Pete, the carpenter showed up on time and we looked at the job together. Most of the post behind the base was rotted so Pete cut off the rotted part of the base, built up a new support for the base and put a very nice base molding around it. The job took a little less than 2 hours, so with the deal, I was covered. My concern was, what if it took the estimated 4 hours? Would I be expected toy pay another $110? I'll never know.

    Neighborhood Remodelers

    A long overdue review.  The project was completed several months ago, but I had a long trip soon after, followed by the busy holiday season.  Here it goes...

    I accepted bids from 4 different companies.  On the low end was a contractor who came with a brochure of cabinets to choose from.  On the high end was one of those you hear on radio and TV commercials.  Neighborhood Remodelers and another company were in the mid-range category.  I awarded the project to NR because I like their team concept.  You know who you'll be dealing with day in and day out. I also like the flexibility of buying the materials myself if I wanted to.  They pass on their discounts to you.  You walk into a Studio 41, Crawford Supplies, Abt Electronics (of which I happen to be a loyal customer), or a tile shop.  You tell them you?re working with NR and the discounts automatically apply.  I know because one time, I forgot to mention that NR sent me there.  When I did, the price dropped 32%.

    How the team concept work is, you first meet with the salesman/owner (Luke).  He emails you a ?Scope of Work? proposal with the Angie?s List discount, which I was able to negotiate a little bit more.  Once a contract is signed, a team is assigned to you and they all come to meet you.  I'm sure they do a lot more, but from my point of view, my team consisted of the designer (Jill) who basically configured my cabinets and drew the blueprint, a project manager (Mike) who manages the timeline and was my go-to person for questions and issues, and a foreman (Peter) who was the all-around carpenter, plumber, electrician, tile installer, painter, appliance installer because mine is a small kitchen.  I like every single person in my team from the moment I they were introduced to me.  They were all very responsive even after the project is done.  I like that I could communicate with them via email because if I remembered something late at night, I did not have to wait to call during office hours.

    Jill was superb to work with, very knowledgeable and helpful throughout my selection process.  She even replied to my late night and weekend emails, not that I expected her to!  The project only ran into 2 unexpected issues.  For the first one, I emailed Mike and he was on-site within 45 minutes to assess the situation, make a call, and provide a solution (for a price of course). The other issue was resolved over email and the countertop folks were scheduled to provide the solution right away.  I also appreciate the way they handle billing.  You know what to expect and you?re dealing with efficient people. No surprises.

    Lastly, I cannot say enough about Peter the foreman.  He comes in with a smile every day.  Did everything by himself, from demolition, haul-away, to completion and cleanup.  I counted that he only actually worked 12 days.  The other days were delivery days, floor install, etc.  Sure, not everything is perfect.  (My friends keep pointing out imperfections to me!)  One cannot be a jack of all trades after all, but overall, he did a great job.

    Kitchen remodeling is hard enough on the homeowner, but Neighborhood Remodelers made the experience as pleasant as possible.  They completed the project within 5 weeks as promised, meeting my hard deadline.  There were no surprises with the cost and in fact, I even went under the estimate.  How often can you say that about a kitchen remodeling project?

    Neighborhood Remodelers
    ge First and foremost I did ALOT of research and interview a number of good Angie's List candidates before choosing Neighborhood. In the end I had 3 great candidates to choose from. I am a big believer in personalities and the people factor and Neighborhood was my choice! After receiving my quote they quickly set up a date to start which was about a month away and perfect. They left me a brochure with places to shop and references. I got a great discount on their recommendation from the tile store and they arranged delivery to my house (and took back the overage, which will be refunded to me....really nice).
    Mike was my primary contact throughout the 3 week process and was very consistent in emailing me and keeping me up to date and/or just there to answer questions, etc. He was always professional and very available.
    Jim was my designer and carpenter/plumber and electrician all in one! From day one we hit it off perfectly. He was always there on time, worked many long days. Every single day he would put down rug coverings and by the time he left at night you would never guess there was ANY construction going on at the house! He set up in the garage for tools, etc and again, super organized and neat...never a mess! On days he may have been running late he always let me know.  He made GREAT design suggestions for laying out the tile and best use of the space...many things I would never have thought of and I was extremely grateful that he took the time to walk me through everything.
    Bottom line, he was just plain AMAZING and I my only regret is that I did not find Neighborhood early to do some of my earlier remodeling projects. I would use them anytime. Right now I am planning my next project to hire them...kitchen backsplash in the next few months. I can't wait..I KNOW they will do a great job.

    RF Improvements Inc
    Radek was quick to give me a estimate and schedule work date, we originally were scheduled for thursday but due to there work load they asked if friday would work for me, Friday they started  and Saturday they finished. This is work i would of done my self, had i not injured my back and in need of surgery, so i do know how much was involved in this task. They finished before my expectations with top quality workmanship, they were friendly and cleanup  after them selfs nicely. Because of my experiance with this company, i'm looking to have them do other work , some small projects and some not so small. I would recommend RF Improvements to friends and family.

    JR Painting & Remodeling
    Whenever a question was brought up, their response was "no problem". Their team of painters was very professional and great to work with. We would definitely use them again. Prior to painting my house, I referred JR Painting to my son and they painted the interior of his house which is larger than mine. He was very happy as well.

    The Basement Men & The Concrete Man

    We had 5 proposals, all of whom we liked. One was so out of line that we decided he didn't want the job.  Three submitted written proposals after seeing our basement, one gave us his proposal by phone, and one came out to talk over the proposal and offer a discount at the time of signing.  We went with the last, The Basement Men, because his proposal was the most thorough.  All the others gave us a base price and told us that, as the work progressed, we could make decisions at that time.

    Steve Lauer's proposal gave us a folder telling us who they were, what kind of work they do, and a list of references we could call.  While he was forthright and very knowledgeable what needed to be done, I was hesitant about someone who comes out to give a proposal and wants a signature at that same time.  While we did go with his company, that procedure of on site signing led to a few minor misunderstandings. However, they were corrected as Steve was a hands-on person and always on site to see the work being done. [It is very difficult to read a contract and grasp it all at one time.]  For the people who submitted their contacts by phone, we were able to go back to the contract and reference and question what we didn't understand.  With Steve's approach, we missed some items in his contract because it was a lot to grasp in a hour without having been able to think about it  awhile.  However, the Basement Men did excellent work and we are pleased with the result.. On November 11, the contract was signed.

    The work began a week after we signed . Two men came in and removed all the old paneling, framing, insulation, ceiling tiles and

    Electric in one day.  They worked from 8 am until 6 pm without stopping.  And they took a lot of the demolition with them that same day.  The next day they came in with wood and drywall, and began the business of remodeling the basement. Two of the already existing door openings weren't framed correctly, so they had to tear them down and square them off so the doors would fit properly. {This was an extra cost.] They also roughed in the electric. Each day, Steve would come by to see the result of the day's work. Checks were appropriated throughout the work as each part of the remodel was completed.  Several days later, the dry waller came in and seamed and patched the dry wall. They left a mess on the basement floor that they had to come back and clean it up as best they could, but much of it was already dried. I was concerned, but not overly, as I knew the carpet would cover the dried patching compound. After quite a few days, they returned to sand the seams and patch. Soon, The original construction team came in to build the bookcases, and work on the sump pumps, install the doors and windows, and fishing the hardware on the doors and lights. After that, they painted the walls a color chosen by us.

     The sump pumps were extra as after completing the new basements, we did not want to the old ones to die us, leaving us with a flooded basement. Steve suggested the battery operated pump and we went along with it.{Both the pump fixtures were extra.]. Lastly the carpet man came in to lay the padding and install the carpet.  We ran into a problem where the demolition team did not take the previous nails out of the concrete floor, but left them in. [The carpet was being laid a few inches from where it was previously.] I stepped on these nails a few times.  Steve did say it was unacceptable, so he had them remove them.  However, after all was completed, I did find that the nails were still protruding in the floor of my workshop and they were never removed.  Everyone passed the buck saying "it was the carpet layers' fault", "it was the demolition crews' fault."  The main fact, whoever's fault it was, it did not get done. They still exist in my workshop.

    Another problem happened because of the on site contract signing.  When Steve toured the basement on the original visit, we had a water meter closet with shelves and a sump pump closet with shelves.  We told Steve we only wanted new doors put on those closets as the old ones were made of  paneling that matched the original basement walls.  In the contract, Steve wrote demolish closets.  We never noticed that as we were having so much work done, it was unfortunately overlooked by us.  So the walls were taken down and the closets rebuilt.  But Steve did not want to put shelves back in the closet.  So eventually, because I signed the contract, I had to abide by its statement, and pay extra to have this done.  I also wanted a ceiling in the closet as one  was in there originally, and after much heated discussions, the dry wallers put one in.

    Overall, we are very happy with our basement.  The work was well done, the workers were all professional;  we worked with them through Steve so that he always knew what each of us wanted, as opposed to a foreman making a decision that we made. It was a needed change from a 70's basement to a new century look. I would recommend using the Basement Men, but I would ask next time to let me have the contract for a few hours so I could  think through everything that is in it, and then sign the same day which is how Steve works.  He was always on call, answered our phone calls promptly, and was always professional in working with us. His price was in range of three other contracts, so a client has to go with whom he feels the most reliable and honest.  For us, Steve and the Basement Men turned out to be that company.

    Handy Men & Mrs Helper Kitchen & Bath
    We had a wonderful experience with Handyman and Mrs. Helper.  Faith, our primary contact was very responsive and professional and the gentleman that did our work (Urmas) was exceptionally friendly and did an amazing job on our kitchen and living room.  I will definitely use them again and highly recommend them.
