I first spoke with the company in the springtime, had two gentlemen come over to provide a quote. There was quite a range depending on whether the mold was invasive enough to remove the deck in order to clear all the rot. Based on reviews and word of mouth, we booked them and they required a 20% deposit. Their estimated time to get to us would not be until September. Whomever was emailing me was a...

Thank you for your business and the review. We appreciate the feedback, and I will work on making my communication less terse. I'm glad you were happy with our crew and our work. As for the billing, our contract was for $5800 and we billed $5720, because the customer bought the tile herself. We do use allowances for items (like her door), because over 75% of the time we send out a proposal and nev...

LR Higgins turned our attic into living space with a half-bath, bedroom, living area and good-sized storage closet. The job involved insulation, wiring, plumbing, windows, sheetrock, flooring -- the whole bit. They worked with us to keep the project within our budget and met our desired completion date. The many crews on the job were respectful, competent, and just plain nice. Eric and Brian provi...

Eric Higgins and his team did a masterful job for us. Our rental property in Portland suddenly had a burst hot-water heater on the 3rd floor, meaning water damage at every level of the property. Given that we lived on the other side of the country, this was a recipe for disaster. But it wasn't. Right away, Eric and his team made short work of putting together all the pieces. Eric had plumbers in t...

The job went more smoothly than I expected. We had to replace our front door, as well as the surrounding framing and the sill underneath do to water damage. The extent of the damage couldn't really be determined until they got into it and had removed the existing door and flooring inside, and turned up to be a little worse than hoped, which was communicated to us immediately, along with what neede...

We live in an old house, so construction never goes as planned, and you don't know what you're up against until you start pulling things apart. That said, Eric always kept us apprised of what was happening. They were presented with several challenges and the primary carpenter, Dean, was always wiling to work through to solutions. Our major holdup occurred when his plumber didn't order the fixtures...

LR Higgins knew about the horrible experience we had with a previous contractor who did a shoddy job and also never returned to finish the jobs for which we had paid him in full. Received an estimate from LR Higgins on repairing and finishing the job and when we received their quote in writing, I couldn't believe my eyes. Mind you we received at least a half a dozen quotes from other contractors a...

Based on the scope we were provided, and represented in our quote, we had over $1,000 in materials. So I'm glad this member was able [Member Information Removed] get his situation solved for less than $1,000. We look at many jobs every week. Could we have misunderstand the scope, possibly. But there was no intent [Member Information Removed] rip anybody off.

It went extremely well. The workmen were prompt, professional, very aware of our privacy, and pleasant to deal with. The work went quickly and was finished on time and budget. The work transformed our sunroom. We are thrilled with the results. As always, Dean was on site almost every day to make sure things were going smoothly, and Eric followed up for final quality control. We will hire them agai...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
We needed all six patio doors replaced in our sun room. This included removing the old windows, reframing and sheathing the sun room with headers, replacing the water table trim and some clapboards, installing drywall, and painting and polyurethaning the doors. In the process, several other problems were uncovered, which were also taken care of.
