General Contracting reviews in Kansas City

    The storm changed the scope of the painting job, After many e-mails, adjustments, estimates and months, my home is finally beautiful again! I'd like to commend Ryan on choosing such good crews. From the first prep/paint crew: Dave & Tsar (his dog), Bill, Waylon, Delphino, Jason & Alfredo (Chicken), to the final crew: Kevin, Adrian, Nick, Jeremiah & Merle, it was an absolute pleasure. These guys showed up on time every day, only took 1/2 hr. lunch break and were the nicest guys ever. Any problems/ question were addressed immediately and without attitude. They even reattached my back stairs (since I couldn't afford new) so I could get out the back door. Being my own contractor and never attempting to pull something off of this magnitude, there were times I didn't think I'd live through it. But, watching these guys take the care they did in revamping my birthplace made it all worthwhile. I can't lie...I'm glad it's over. But God answered all of my prayers and gave me a sense of pride in now having the most beautiful house in the neighborhood! Take that, Code Enforcement!

    This is our third project with Remodel Masters. The first two projects consisted of having old front porches on each of our two homes removed and a new screened in porch built on one home and an open porch on the other home. The third and current project was the demolition of an old deck and the installation of a new deck on the back of one of our homes. This was a two step process as the old deck had to be removed and the house had to be painted. Last fall, Randy removed the old deck; we then had the entire house painted and this month Randy built the new deck. We very much appreciated his willingness to work with us in the removal of the old deck and the construction of the new deck allowing for the paint job to be done in between. Randy and his helper installed pressure treated support framing with support posts on top of concrete deck support blocks. We chose gray Trex for the decking which matches the gray Trex Randy installed on the front porch of the house. Randy also installed white PVC porch railing on two sides of the deck as well as post sleeves for the five posts on the deck. He also included five white post caps with solar lighting. My husband and I are delighted with our new deck; we appreciate Randy's attention to detail and his expertise in design and construction. As with the two porches he built for us, we believe we received top quality work on the deck and plan to enjoy it for many years to come. We plan to have Randy back this fall for a fourth project to pour a concrete walkway which will provide a path from the back door of one of our houses to the back door of our other house. We highly recommend Remodel Masters for top notch construction.

    The entire process was amazing. Doug is top notch and a true professional. He not only completed everything very quickly (unlike other companies/individuals we've worked with) but his work was very good. He is great at communicating what's going on and when he'll be there and he shows up on time and does a great job. We could not be more happy with the work that Doug did and would totally rehire him again and definitely would recommend him to anyone. He was an absolute pleasure to work with.

    This was a major renovation for me. Randy was great at handling all the problems that arose. I had planned on keeping a lot of my old cabinets and repainting them. Randy said it just wasn't worth putting them back in. Between that and the additional work because of old termite damage and the update for electrical to bring that up to code, the expenses were adding up. Randy was willing to work with me, knowing I'm a senior on a fixed income raising a grandchild, and put my mine at ease. Damon who was the foreman on the job is a treasure, working fast, but talented in problem solving and knowing what has to be done each day, when it has to be done and how it must be done. He listened to everything I had to say, no matter how mundane, and, in spite of all he had to contend with, went above and beyond with his job. Troy was great with helping Damon and did a lot of the work that had to be done around Damon's jobs. He is a good worker. Overall, in spite of the extra work and the added expense, they made it come out done on the original time frame. I would highly recommend this company because of their professionalism and commitment to making the job an experience that comes out better than expected. I will always remember it with gratitude.

    I contacted Remodel Masters via Angie's List for an estimate on porch repair on a second home that my husband and I own. We wanted a new porch floor installed and the lower walls of the interior porch replaced. Randy Capone, the owner of Remodel Masters immediately replied to my email. He came out a few days later and provided us with a written estimate for the new floor and interior walls.
    Randy and I communicated mainly via email and he was very good at keeping me updated as to when he could begin work on the project. He advised me that he was currently working on another outside project and due to several rainy days, work on that project would be delayed, thereby delaying the start of work on my project. This was perfectly understandable.
    Randy advised me that he could begin work on my porch on August 26th. He arrived promptly at 9:00AM and began work. As my husband and I are retired, we were both on the premises when the walls and floor were removed. Over the years, my husband has done many woodworking projects (including building a small cabin that he and a friend use when camping). I state this to show that my husband has a solid knowledge of and background in woodworking and construction and is able to judge the validity of the information he is being given and the quality of the work that is being performed .
    When Randy removed the porch floor and the interior walls, it became apparent to all of us that the project would require much more than just having the floor and interior walls replaced. The house is approximately 60 years old and there was extensive damage to the wood that that the porch floor was resting on. All of that wood needed to be replaced in order to accomodate the Trex Transcend flooring that we wanted installed.
    Randy inspected the upper portion of the porch in the presence of my husband and myself and found additional damage to the wooden structure. At that point, it became a unanimous decision that the entire porch needed to be demolished and replaced. This, of course resulted in an increase in the cost of the project.
    Randy and his helper removed the entire porch and installed columns to prop up the roof. Per the city's building code requirements, Randy and his helpers dug four 36 inch footings. A building inspector came out to inspect the depth of the holes and approved that step of the project. Randy then filled the holes with concrete and left them to set up over the Labor Day week-end. He then returned on Tuesday, September 3rd and begain construction of the new porch.
    Randy used pressure treated wood for the deck frame and the vertical columns. My husband was highly impressed by the fact that although it was not necessary, Randy added stability to the porch by corner bracing the framing of the porch even though the supports are bolted to the concrete footings. He said that this shows that Randy's work is "top notch". Praise from him is praise indeed.
    The city required a second building inspection once the outside framing was completed, Again, Randy's work received immediate approval.
    Randy and his helper then installed the interior and exterior siding and then screened in the porch. While his helper did the screening, Randy built steps from pressure treated wood and attached them to the house. He constructed and attached a railing for each side of the steps and per the city's code requirement, added a grippable handrail to the railing.
    At this point, the third and final inspection was done. Again, Randy's work passed with flying colors.
    Although per our contract, Randy's work was finished, he was kind enough to hang a screened porch door that we purchased for the entryway to the porch and also installed quarter-round on the interior of the porch floor which gives the project a finished look. He also tightened bolts on a wrought iron railing which were loose. These three additional services were not included in the estimate and we very much appreciated Randy doing these extras for us.
    Randy and his helpers arrived on time each day and cleaned up after their work on a daily basis. All of the demolition and construction was performed in temperatures of well over 90 degrees. Randy did not sub-contract any portion of this job. He is the owner of Remodel Masters and was on the job each day doing both the demolition and construction himself with limited assistance. He answered all of our questions with great patience.

    My husband and I feel that Randy's work and craftsmanship is excellent. We believe that our money was well spent with him and that he truly earned what he was paid. We will definitely consider him for future home remodeling projects.E

    This was not a big job, but Ron took the time to show up and do the work as he promised.   We have had several other handymen promise to do this job, but were all no shows ( probably because it was a small job). 
    The result is the removal of an eye-sore that distracted from beauty of house.
    Ron is punctual, quick and professional.
    He is also a great communicator, keeping us informed of when he would be there and the progress of the work.
    We would definitely use his services again.

    The short version: I ended up with a decent paint job on my house, but getting there was a giant, disappointing hassle.
    After reading the other reviews on here, and meeting Larry when he came out to bid on the project, I felt like I was in good hands. We took a couple other bids, and this one seemed like a good value for the money. Unfortunately, the crew that ended up actually doing the work was sloppy, disrepectful of my property, and had very poor attention to detail. When the job started, I was introduced to Carlos, who would be running the job. Unfortunately, he ended up hardly ever being present, and the crew members left to do the work clearly weren't interested in doing the job right. They also didn't speak English, so I had almost no ability to communicate with them.
    When scraping/power-washing the old paint off, the crew didn't use any kind of dropcloth to collect the falling paint chips. (Since my house is over 90 years old, one should generally assume it's got lead-based paint on it, right? Per my research, this appears to be a fairly serious EPA violation.) These paint chips were then stepped on and pulverized during the rest of the job, so I ended up with thousands of tiny chips EVERYWHERE. They're in the grass. They're in the multiple mulched areas I have next to the house. They're on my driveway and my patio. Even after several attempts by both JCP and myself to clean them up, they're still everywhere. Not only is this unsightly, but if our old paint was indeed lead-based, it's unsafe not only to the groundwater, but to our 17-month-old son. We still have to check every time we come inside to make sure we're not tracking in tiny paint chips he'll end up eating. Completely unacceptable.
    In addition, one of the times I was out trying to communicate with the crew, I watched one of them wash out a paint bucket and throw the wastewater directly into what had been, until that moment, my vegetable garden. They got paint on my patio furniture. They oversprayed and got paint on my stone foundation in a couple spots. All in all, the crew clearly had an utter lack of respect for my property.
    Our house was previously white all over; we went to blue with white trim. The crew didn't seem to pay any attention to what was supposed to be and quot;trim,and quot; and just sprayed nearly everything blue. I had to point out multiple times that certain things should be trimmed white. These weren't special/strange requests, but areas that are what I would consider and quot;standardand quot; - you could have looked at any other house on my street as a reference point. Larry ended up doing several of these areas himself at the end, as we ept finding and quot;trimand quot; areas painted blue after the crew was and quot;finished.and quot;
    I feel Like Larry made the effort to help fix the problems his crew had caused, and ended up doing most of the touch-up work himself. There was some carpentry-related work that became part of this project, about which we'd had some miscommunication during the bid process, and I feel that he probably charged me less than he could have because of the issues I'd had with the crew.
    I'd probably rate the paint job a B. I expect some impefections on a house this age, but I feel like there are ares that could have been given more attention and finishing detail.
    Larry's efforts to correct his crew's mistakes helped, but the metaphorical hole they'd dug just wasn't something he could climb out of. I can't give the whole experience anything other than an F. Judging by the other reviews on here, it appears my experience is not the norm, and I hope actions have been taken to address the issues that occurred during my painting job. That said, I obviously couldn't recommend their services, based on my experience.

    We have nothing but praise for Steve and Fonda Shaw. They, along with their skillful crew took pride in every detail of this project. Steve is skillful in planning and directing the project so no time and effort is wasted. Also what we liked is the way they partner with local businesses to help us make the right choices for this kitchen. It is a work of beauty and we are so pleased with the outcome. In the past, we have had many sour experiences with other contractors and firms so you must know what a blessing it is to work with a quality minded business. My score for them is A+++
