    JRG Custom Deck & Design
    It took much longer than promised. Workers left rubbish in my yard for weeks before removing it. This company's response to problems was slow and follow through with customer almost non existant. JRG Custom deck & Design seemed more interested in being paid than in doing the job.

    JRG Custom Deck & Design
    While the actual deck and patio did get finished, working with Jim Parker and JRG Custom Deck and Design was very frustrating. The work took much longer than promised often with only one worker showing up to build the deck and put in the fence on many days, other days no one showed up. The workers did not clean up after themselves and left piles of rubbish in my yard for several weeks before they finally had it hauled off (after multiple requests) so much of my grass was damaged. The follow up with this company is terrible, My impression of Jim Parker and his contracting company JRG Custom Deck and Design is that he is much more interested in your money than your job. I would strongly suggest checking out other good, honest, and caring contractors and forget about JRG Custom Deck and Design. I would not recommend Jim Parker or JRG Custom Deck and Design to anyone!!

    Kuhl's Contracting
    Luke came over on the 9th of October and the new roof was completely finished in one day on October 18th!

    A real pleasure to work with; extremely efficient and cordial in all aspects of the work, including dealing with insurance.

    K2 Bath Deck & Kitchen
    After agreeing to a plan with the sales rep, our project started within the ballpark timeframe that we were given.  Upon meeting with the project manager, he pointed out a few tweaks we'd have to make with our design to fit the constraints of our bathroom.  The demolition, carpentry, and installation work went well - the quality of work was very high.  We'd find little notes in our bathroom some nights with questions for us, like "showerhead goes 'here' or 'here'?"  A nice way to communicate and make sure our project turned out the way we wanted.  Communication with everyone from K2 was excellent, from occasional checkins with the project manager, to calls from the carpenter to make sure he understood our requests.  When we'd come home from work early, we'd find tools scattered throughout our bedroom (always on top of plastic sheets though), but at the end of every workday our bedroom was always very clean and all the equipment was arranged in the bathroom - we appreciated the care taken to keep our house as clean as possible amid a remodel job.  Final result was great, we were very happy with the work.  Price was a a bit higher than competitors we looked at, but having been through the project to the finish - we think the experience and the workmanship of our bathroom remodel made it a price worth paying.

    CJ Craftsman Construction LLC
    Cj Craftsman  (Chris Burrington) drew up the original plans for the house and the SIP (Structural Insulated Panels) were ordered off of those drawings. Chris then built the frame of the house with these highly insulated wall pieces, making sure these walls had the correct runs to allow for electricity wiring and plumbing. Chris also installed all of the six super energy efficient windows, built the loft inside, installed the wood flooring and the wood wall paneling. Chris worked extremely well with the other contractors who had to work in tandem with him to make sure everything was right to install the solar hot water, solar air heat, solar electricity and the passive solar. This was all done in three weeks and everything was finished by the start of the fair. This was a major effort, with many, many very long days put in by Chris to make sure it was done on time. We are very grateful for his hard work. you can see pictures of the Tiny Solar House being built and the finished product on our facebook page or website.

    Home Street Home Improvers
    I received a couple of quick phone call quotes from different contractors who never went to the place of residence.  As there was water intrusion from the outside, I suspected there may be additional damage that I need to be made aware of, learning how water intrusion actually occurred and what will go into the cost of fixing it.  The prices over the phone were less expensive but left me with an impression that they did not want to take on a job and the chances of them only quoting a patio door install felt very likely. As this was my first house and one of the things that I need to address as a homeowner, I needed to find someone who will do the job and not try to sell me their patio doors.

    I called Vince and he agreed to take a look at what it will take and not quote me a number on the phone.  This was a good news because I bought patio doors from Menards, and I was not sure if it was the right size.  He took a look and felt that the moisture inside the house, the condensation against the glass, and not providing proper insulation resulted in the patio door failure.  Additionally it looked like my previous patio doors were custom sized by the dealer and he explained they do this to cut down costs.  My patio doors that I bought from Menards was standard size and my previous were about an inch wider.  This left me slightly disappointed in myself for not sizing things up correctly.  Even though the patio doors were smaller, he still could make them work.  I mentioned to Vince that I could still return the patio doors and get the proper sized ones.  Vince told me that I couldn't return the patio doors since they were special order.  I looked my receipt and there was a 25% restocking fee I would take a hit on.  For $400.00 patio doors, renting a trailer and the probability of an additional cost to order them the right size, I probably will only save $200.00.  I didn't feel it was worth it because once I decide to replace all my windows (side note, I had trouble finding contractors because patio doors counts as windows - I found that out from Vince), I probably need to get another patio door anyways. It's easier to find a standard size patio door or remove the previous woodwork.

    After Vince totaled everything up, he provided a rough estimate to which I pressed for more something that is more accurate as I explained I did not want something that would end up costing considerably more than the estimate. Vince was a little bit hesitant but obliged to my request at $1,200.  He also provided me a rough timetable when his crew can do the install.  I again asked for something a little bit more concrete but he couldn't oblige at that moment.  I told him if he could when he looked at the schedule to let me know because I'd like a firm date and he could send me over the contract he wanted me to sign.

    Vince later sent me a contract where I would need to put down 25% before the start of the job but he did not provide a more solid start date.  I felt 25% was excessive for a job where I could not be provided a firm start date and I would have preferred put that money down once he provided me a firm date whenever that may be.  I talked to Vince over this issue of me putting that amount down for a job that has not started without a firm date.  He disagreed with my take on it because he felt this is how contractors handle business (which is not been my experience with other contractors at my house thus far).  I offered 25% when he can provide me a firm start date but he refused and countered with 10% down now but no firm start date.  I was hesitant because I like certainty, but I accepted it...

    who told me that they have room the following Friday for an install.  This provided me relief because Vince was accurate on his estimated timetable. A week goes back and the crew arrives at my house to put in the patio doors and my wife was home to watch over the house, answer any questions and relay any questions to me.  According to my wife, one of the installers was hesitant to properly strip away the rotted wood.  The guy who supervised initially agreed with the installer but my wife disagreed.  My wife and I spent a lot of time looking at rotted wood in order to be better educated to spot trouble and this is an opportunity to spot trouble.  When she asked about fixing it and she was initially rebuffed, she went over there and started easily peeling away the rotted wood to prove that it is worse than it actually is rotted and be taken care of.  The supervisor then agreed with her assessment and told the installer to repair the wood.  She also noticed the drywall problem and needed my opinion.  I left work and when I arrived Vince arrived around noon as well to check and see how the install was going.  Vince spotted a couple of issues and the installers took care of it.  After I looked at the drywall, I didn't think it was a problem and Vince agreed.  I am glad my wife was there to notice the rotted wood since that was on top of our list of reasons for the repair, I am however a little bit disappointed that my wife had to take the initiative to show it was rotten and needed to be replaced.  I imagine other people might accidentally look over it.  I would have demonstrated that the rotted wood is not a problem if it really wasn't.

    After all said and done, the ending price was $1275 which was more than reasonable.  They fixed the sub-flooring and we now have more time to properly take care of our hardwood floors.  That will be my project next year.  Their overall work, finish and knowledge of the project at hand is exceptional.  I think their craftsmanship is top notch and I may hire them again for the next project.  It was a pleasure.

    Update number 2:  Vince came back out during the holiday weekend to address a couple of concerns I had with the patio door.  I adjusted the professionalism to an A because Vince cared about addressing my concerns.  The installation of the patio door with the two z-flashes should prevent water getting inside.  I noticed caulking was not done to the old door frame (remember they needed to create a smaller frame for my smaller door).  Water appeared to be seeping in and I was not too sure how that could happen.  Even though that area was not touched, Vince (or a crew member) added caulking to our vinyl siding and wooden patio door frame.

    Vince also pointed out that I should re-caulk the windows because the caulk appears to be wearing out.  He also pointed out the vinyl siding installation the builder did incorrectly built.  Thankfully, I do not have as much vinyl siding as my  neighbors (half of it is stucco) but I need to address it.

    After talking to Vince, re-caulking my windows is a top priority I am going to take on these next couple of weekends.  Again, I am definitely calling Vince for the next large project.

    Brewers Carpentry Services

    It took Tim 2 days to complete the job which amazed me.  No damage to anything in the house and a beautiful fit to everything.  I love to see a true craftsman in action.  We asked him back a month or so later to install a new oak handrail in the stairway to the basement and will likely use him again on any finish carpentry.  I am a good finish carpenter (DIY) myself and a perfectionist and Tim fully met my expectations.

    Drywall Repair Service Inc
    We hired Monte to replace drywall and repair a kitchen cabinet that had been damaged when our dishwasher leaked. We requested an estimate via email by describing the necessary work and providing photographs of the damage. Monte responded very promptly with an estimate. It took a few weeks to arrange the work (because we were dragging our feet and he is busy!), and once we agreed upon a date he turned up very promptly and was friendly and professional. He charged the exact amount he had estimated, and did an excellent job. Highly recommended.

    GCM Inc
    GCM was hired by our landscape designer to build 2 arbors / pergolas and a stoop as a part of a larger landscaping project for our backyard. Their price was the best of the bids so we chose to go with them, but regretted it at every step of the way. First off, they repeatedy had issues/delays/excuses for not showing up as scheduled. I believe it was the 3rd no show when they said it was a mechanical issue with a truck. Regardless, the constant delays meant other parts of the project couldn't move forward for weeks. That ultimately meant we couldn't finish the project last fall as we were unable to paint/stain given the weather. When they did finally arrive, the workman played loud music on a "boom box" throughout the day until finally I had to ask them to turn it off so we could have dinner without listening to the racket. At about 9pm at night I also had to ask them to leave and finish it the next day so my 2 year old could get to bed (room right about the work area).
    Probably the most concerning issue though was the quality and integrity of the work. When I came home and questioned why some of the boards did not align, the workman said they were "just going to fill it in with caulking" even though it was clearly cut short by over 1/2 inch. I said no way was that acceptible, so he called the manager/owner, proceeded to huff and puff, and then tore it down to do it right. If I had not gotten home in time, I'm afraid to think of what they would have tried to mask or cover up as shotty worksmanship. Similarly, the stoop was build six inches off center so they had to come back and fix it weeks later. The "fix" included adding pieces of wood to extend it visually, but already this spring those pieces are popping off since they were just tacked on at the end.
    To add icing on the cake, the owner (who was pleasant) shared with me that he had been doing a big job for Papa John's at night and that is why he was backed up. So my feedback is this if he ever reads this... either take the large commercial jobs and focus there or live up to your committments to residential jobs. Don't make "little" residential jobs be your fill in whenever you have time with missed deadlines, poor quality work, and an otherwise second class effort.
