    All Angle Contracting
    All Angles Contracting went above and beyond to give my home a new look. I bought a fixer upper that needed some extensive work and they were able to exceed my requests. They were consistently on time, fair with their pricing and provided the attention to detail that any skilled craftsman should have.

    Fantastic! Nelson did an entire remodel of a basement apartment including adding a laundry were terr wasnt one before... it was a lot of work we needed and he did a great job and finished on time. He had some great recommendations for setting up the new laundry space as well. We get lots of complements on the apartment.

    JA Renovations & Home Improvement
    Jairo and his assistant were on time and very professional. He informed me what materials I needed in order for him to repair my drywall. Jairo told me what needed to be done and advised me that he wouldn't be able to complete the job because it needed to dry before he could sand and paint. As a result, I had him patch some nail pops to take advantage of the 2 hour time.

    Excellent! Very knowledgeable & genuine. No quick sale persona. All information provided was to better manage the function of old toilets & what to research when purchasing new toilets. He provides installation and removal.

    Campbell's Power Washing & General Contractor
    The owner made an appointment but sent someone else without notification. The worker discussed the projects with us, took pictures and made a copy of the project list. It's been +4 weeks and we have not heard back from the company.

    JP Landscaping and home improvement
    Jose has been fertilizing our lawn for years. But this year was the first time we asked him to paint and complete a list of home repairs. We started with the job of painting two rooms. Then we had him change our kitchen faucet and install a new hot water dispenser, replace several cracked floor tiles and replace missing grout, clean the chimney on our fireplace, replace three roof flashings that were deteriorated, replace some rotten railing boards and re-paint them, install a hardwood floor, and sand and re-finish a hardwood floor in another room. It was all completed within a couple of weeks and it all came out very well.

    Morgan Home Solutions
    Overall, they did reasonably good work, and the presentation of the house was much improved. So, I am giving middle ratings to be fair; however, it was a stressful experience that had many negatives. Some of these are as follows: 1) Bear in mind that I now live two hours from the house. We were aiming to meet on a Saturday to do the final walkthrough and payment, but his crew weren't quite finished, so we postponed to Tuesday evening. Something came up at work Tuesday and I couldn't make it work, so I called him and requested to meet the following Friday evening. He immediately threatened to file liens against the house, boasted that he had connections in PG county, and said would sue me. This is all before he'd even sent me the final invoice, and I had been precisely on time with all other payments. 2) One of his painting crew turned out to have a record a mile long, and stole a vehicle that I had on the property. I had moved the car for this gentleman to be able to paint in the area, offered to sell it to him, and _also_ showed him where the keys were in case he needed to move it again. (This was a crew who had full access to the house and keys while we were living elsewhere, and so while possibly naive, I extended trust to this guy, and it bit me.) I'm all for giving people second chances, but it's not fair to homeowners to have people with suspect backgrounds in your crew. 3) When it turned out that the wood floor in fact couldn't be cleaned and required sanding / refinishing, Morgan ended up sanding only one room out of three (even though there was floor damage in the other rooms that required refinishing too) because "it didn't make business sense for him" to restore the other rooms (we're talking around 150sq ft restored and 400sq ft not.) 4) When doing the final walkthrough, I noticed that some (of the newly sprayed) paint was peeling off one of the outside walls, because the walls had not been properly prepared ahead of time, and the paint underneath was loose. I pointed this out to Morgan, and he said that "preparation of exterior walls ahead of painting wasn't included in the contract." This is very typical of many issues we encountered; things that may have reasonably been assumed to be covered the contract (e.g. preparing walls before painting them) weren't explicitly listed in black and white, and therefore he felt he wasn't required to do them. 5) His crew installed a GFI outlet, but neglected to ground it. This was flagged in the home inspection, and cost money to fix. 6) There was a drainage backup issue on the washer, which was in the contract to have fixed. I explained the issue to him up front. When his plumber was on site, Morgan forgot some of the details, and his plumber thought that it just had to be snaked to fix it. I convinced him to get his plumber back out (since it was a fairly new drainage line and wasn't backed up), and he required me to pay $100 to get the plumber on site.. He told me that his plumber inspected the whole setup, and determined that it was "exactly as he'd have installed it." They didn't fix the issue. I got a separate plumber out after the fact, who found that the 2" drain line ran away from the main sewer drain into a 1 1/2" drain line, before doubling back on itself - hence it backing up. So I don't believe that his plumber actually inspected the whole setup. (To be fair here, Morgan said he was unable to reproduce the backing up problem; however, simply running the machine through a drain cycle 2-3 times was always sufficient for me to do so.) 7) He left a full pickup truck's worth of garbage on site, which a friend of mine instead removed. Morgan waved it off saying that he'd already hauled a pickup truck's worth off site, as if he'd done me a favor by doing so, and therefore was off the hook for the remaining construction debris. There's other smaller stuff that also went wrong that I don't have room for here. From my point of view, I don't think Morgan took good enough notes on the original walkthrough to capture all the things we discussed. When I got the contract, I assumed that it was summarizing (e.g. "Paint house exterior" would reasonably be shorthand for "Prep exterior of house to be painted, including scraping loose paint, sanding if necessary, power washing, and then paint it",) but that wasn't the case. If you decide to work with this crew, assume that what is in the contract is exceptionally literally what will be done, no matter what context was discussed on earlier dates.

    JP Professional Service
    I called on two occasions to schedule handyman services. The first call I I spoke with Josh and he was busy so he promised me a call back. He called back two weeks later. We spoke and he asked me to text him the work I need done and he would call back to schedule my work. No call back and it's been another week. This handyman seems to either have too much work or is just unprofessional.

    Ortega General Contractors
    They moved furniture for me. I am going to call them back for some more. They were very responsible. They did the job exactly how I asked them to do it. They were proper and did the job without any delays. As a matter of fact, do you know what else they did. I called them twice. I had a branch down, they came over cut it down and cut it up. removed it. Actually, some of the wood I kept. They have done everything I have asked them to do.

    Handyman At Your Command
    He came out around Christmas time and do some light work on the yard. Help us hang some things up for us that require climbing a ladder. I think they could be at least $10-20 a little lower than what they charge. It came out as the base rate for the first hour, but it could have been a little cheaper. I would use them again. He did it in an hour. He did just an over all wellness.
