    Boss Design Center
    We used Boss design to remodel our kitchen, floors, and family room fireplace. They did a phenomenal job, as is evidenced by the comments we get from everyone who has seen our house. They were even extremely prompt with a minor warranty issue for some interior cabinet lighting (issue was with a transformer) which occurred more than a year and a half after the remodeling was completed. We recommend them wholeheartedly to anyone needing remodeling work done in their home. Thanks Boss Design!

    Shem D. Coffer, Carpenter, Practical builder
    Shem has done work for me for over 12 years now. His prices are very reasonable. I have not seen him get out bid.  It has always gone smooth, the quality has always been there and I would always recommend him for any job.

    Scott Baird Plumbing & Heating Co Inc
    They arrived and spent a long time trying to find out why the gas fireplace would stay lit.  He finally thought he knew the answer.  Returned to the shop and ordered the part. It was expensive.about $120.  When the part arrived, they returned,serviced the heating units, and installed the part.

    Karl Mattes Co Inc
    We needed the work done quickly prior to closing on the sale of our house. The company called us back very quickly with an estimate of the cost of the work based on the phone description. They scheduled an appointment within a couple of days. We had some miscommunication at first as the repairman thought he was only giving us an estimate of the work to be done after seeing the damage. We explained we needed repair quickly and thought he was there to do the repair. He got on the phone with the company office, explained the situation, and was able to have a replacement refractor part ordered right away. The company then rescheduled the repair appointment for a few days later. They were on time and the work was done well and quickly. They also sent us a receipt for the work done more quickly than their usual time frame so we would be able to provide proof of the repair to our buyer. We appreciated the company working with us to quickly resolve the miscommunication about the purpose of the initial appointment.

    WARM HEARTH CHIMNEY SWEEPS
    They said it does not look like it has been used much which is correct. Suggested I add some more rock and glow stuff inside to cover up the gas holes and I could get what I needed at my local hardware store. They got on the room and verified there were no obstructions and that all was in good shape and it met all fire codes. I usually do not write reviews except for when I was looking for a Chimney sweep company they were few and far between and all wanted to charge way to much. I am very impressed they were very friendly but most important honest. I would of never know if it needed to be cleaned or not. but they were honest and only charged me for the inspection. If you end up using them off this review please let them know you saw this on Angie's list from the guy with the bad back in Shelbyville. Its always good for people to know someone appreciated their time..

    Olde Towne Chimney Sweeps Fireplace Sales
    We had a gas fireplace that was not working properly and outside air blew into the house. We had plastic covering the fireplace and preferred a wood burning fireplace over gas. We had several companies look at making repairs but none of them seemed as knowledgable as this company. It was a 3-day job and everything went well. I have used the fireplace 5 times in the last 2 weeks and especially enjoy the blower. We no longer have a draft in our living area and the fireplace does a great job of warming our room. Our living room looks very nice with the new stone and I highly recommend this company to others.

    Answered by someone who didn’t know the name listed on the website as the customer service manage. Asked for credit card before any work or service call would be made. Sounded like a scam.

    Williams Comfort Air of Kentucky
    The owner came over, looked at both projects and assured me he could do them and was very interested. He went over some the the things he would check out then promised me an estimate in a couple of days. I never heard from him again. I emailed his office numerous times, each time being assured that part of the estimate was complete or they were waiting on a vendor or that I would hear back by the next day or...........this went on for weeks. Williams had a good reputation and this is a small area so I waited. Finally, after numerous weeks and emails I got a note that he decided he didn't want the job. A total waste of time which put me way behind schedule. The good part is that I found really good providers and they completed the projects under budget. Williams showed no respect for me at all. I have heard numerous stories of similar conduct since then.

    Rod Layman Masonry
    To begin with, three men arrived at my house without any tools.  I had to provide saw blades, a shovel, hoe, buckets, a wheelbarrow, plastic, scaffolding, etc.  The job was supposed to take three days.  Owner Rod Layman and I agreed on $5,400.  He tried to raise the price even before the job began, but he reluctantly agreed to stick with original estimate when I told him more money was not in my budget.  I simply didn't have any more money.  At the end of day two, Rod said it would take another day to complete work, plus he wanted me to pay overtime, $1,800 more.  Mason was only 1/3rd of the way through. There days later, on day five, Rod Layman stated I owed him an additional $2,962  This was a gross injustice because one of the men were hardly working during the last three days while the mason Sunny was laying the bricks painfully slow.  Two days after the completion of the job, when we finally removed a board covering the granite hearth (per Sunny's instruction), we discovered that a huge amount of mortar had seeped out overtop of the granite hearth and dried.  Rod's mason named Sunny came back and attempted to remove the mortar.  He was able to remove most of it, but the granite is now permanently damaged.  Unfortunately, the mortar he replaced on the back side of the granite is crumbling at the slightest touch.  The luster is gone and specks of concrete cover the surface. While Sunny was removing the mortar (that he acknowledged was his fault), he repaired some other areas that were problematic.  Unfortunately, his mortar mix was not right and I ended up with mortar that was crumbly, plus his corrections didn't match the original terra cotta color.  Sunny came back a second time to make corrections to the mortar color.  While he was at my house, he redid 17 half bricks that were grossly misaligned.  Most of these bricks were where the  brick meets the ceiling.  He greatly improved the alignment but again, the mortar ended up being crumbly to touch and  the color of the newly repaired bricks were way off.  I discovered, after he left, four cracked bricks that were damaged as a result of his hammering.  Evidently, when he was removing some of the bricks by knocking them out with a hammer and chisel, some of the bricks cracked.   If that wasn't bad enough, the  mortar splatter and holes the men left all over the ceiling and walls was beyond comprehension.  It's now been two weeks, and my mortar from his third visit has completely dried.  The color of the mortar ranges from pink to bright red.  The mortar joints are not consistent.  In some places they are concave and other places they are protruding.  Some joints are an inch in thickness and in other places they are 1/8th of an inch.  My fireplace is literally a disaster. I contacted the owner Rod several days ago.  He offered to send Sunny out yet again.  I declined. We've moved two steps backwards for every step forward.  I asked the owner Rod Layman if he would consider sending out one of his other masons.  I never heard back yet.  In final, Rod and his workers are nice people, but the quality of their work is terrible.  The mason's skill level is low.  If you are going to remove brick from a fireplace everyone knows you can't hammer cemented (S-Mortar) brick out with a chisel and a hammer without doing serious damage to the rest of the brick. Plus, the men never had the proper tools to do the work. They were upset themselves that Rod sent them to my house without any equipment or tools.  I wish I had seen Rod's F rating when I looked him up on Angie's list.  His rating varies based upon how you look him up.  .  One search has him coming up with a B rating, but much of that is attributed to work he did along time ago.  All I have to say is be forewarned.  I wish I had searched harder.  Now, I'm paying a very costly price.
