    It went Awesome! Erskine was reliable, he showed up when he said he was going too and he was professional. He did a great job, he utilized his time while doing all the work and he cleaned up after the jobs as well. I will be using him Again for some projects in the fall and have recommended him to my friends.

    If an "A+" was an option, I'd have selected it. Erskine and his team did a tremendous job through each phase; demo, flooring, cabinet assembly, and finish work. Whenever there were unexpected challenges that arose, Erskine was quick and calm about communicating the issue and brainstorming possible solutions. He showed his expertise in so many ways, and he also took time to listen to our goals and vision for the project. It was clear, that making us happy with the final result was the ultimate goal for Erskine. And it's refreshing to see someone who enjoys their work as much as he does. Can't say enough about the integrity, professionalism, and attention to detail. I'm looking for other projects around the house to work with Erskine in the future!

    Erskine, was very professional from the very beginning. He showed up on time for the estimate and had a bid prepared within a few days. Subsequently, after deciding to hire him I had nothing but positive interactions. Daily he continued to show up on time and make steady progress, actually completing the project ahead of schedule which was a big plus! Throughout the entire process, he provided updates and kept me informed regarding any unexpected obstacles and issues that came up. Overall, I am very pleased with the finished product and definitely plan to hire him again for future projects!

    Erskine did a great job on this repair job. Showed upon time and took pains to be sure the mess of repairing the drywall didn't get all over the rest of the room. Cleaned up everything at the end. I would certainly recommend his company.

    This was a difficult job since nothing in our house is ���standard���. The lighting had to be moved twice along with the medicine cabinet and the doorway had to me moved all to accommodate the new cabinets. Very pleased with the outcome.

    We have been very pleased with the work completed by Unlimited Handiworks. He has used new products, researched the best ways for installation, and offered fresh ideas. Erskine has done many different types of projects for us and we have always been pleased. He is also very pleasant to work with and considerate of one's personal space.

    Erskine Horton, the main man behind Unlimited Handiworks, did an excellent job. The house he had to work with was a Wick Home built in 1979 (meaning nothing in the house is "standard"), so the task wasn't without its problems but nothing Mr. Horton couldn't fix. The kitchen cabinets posed the biggest challenge since they were constructed unit-by-unit by Klervue, shipped in boxes with instructions on how to put them together. This type of cabinets was a first for Mr. Horton and he did a great job piecing them together. Mr. Horton was easy to work with, helped us in choosing the products for the buck, and made suggestions on how best to accomplish what we wanted the house to look like. He works best without over-the-shoulder monitoring but is open to suggestions or ideas and does like feedback on his work. We look forward to seeing what he does with the bathroom which will be thoroughly remodeled as well. Mr. Horton was always upbeat and ready to tackle whatever was scheduled for the day; he also has a great positive attitude. I've included before and after pictures of the kitchen (sorry they're not real good); pics of the rest of the house will have to come later.

    The provider did an excellent job and took pride in his work.  He was on time, and he returned our calls/messages in a timely manner.  The provider was very friendly and personable.  He honored his original quotes, and he did not add any surprise charges or fees at the time of payment.  We have used this provider on multiple occasions, and we would recommend him to our friends and family.

    I could not be happier.  Everything was done right the first time.  The staff and subcontractors were all professional and personable, everyone liked their job and had personal pride and integrity.  Jake is knowledgeable in all aspects of contracting, including minute details of each step.  His artistic vision was extremely helpful and definitely added to the finished product.  
    I have an older custom home with unusual construction of every kind.  This was NEVER a problem.  Each unforeseen issue was seen as an opportunity to improve the home.
    The irrigation issues were immense, but they were transformed into a beautifully landscaped yard with immaculate masonry.
    Jake stayed in constant communication, there were never any negative surprises or delays.  We came in very close to budget, amazing since the actual work was more than I expected.  Aarow's bid was a little higher than others, but well worth the differenc in real value.  The highest quality products were used, it never felt like Aarow was skimping on anything. Quite the contrary, Jake, Henry and staff strived to do the most for the least cost, as if it was their own house.

    We hired Jake Bruton and Aarow Building for a large scale addition and renovation project. Long story short, the whole thing turned into a huge nightmare.  He ended up at least 35% above the initial agreed upon bid.  Then he walked off the job with no warning, leaving us to become general contractors and work with all of the sub-contractors to finish our house and take care of the additional 2 months of unfinished work, an incredibly stressful situation to be in. As for the budget, there were no written change orders, etc. documenting the overages - just him saying, after months of assuring us we were "in the budget", that we were $40,000 over the budget.  Then, about 5 weeks later, saying, that actually it's like $90,000 over, and final numbers were actually $200,000 over the initial budget. The increased costs were not the result of changes made by us, they were almost solely the result of poor estimation by the builder. We came close to losing our house over his mismanagement of the budget. We were never notified of any increase in cost until he gave us these lump sum numbers.  For this large of a project, he was unable to manage the costs.  He very strongly pushed a type of framing called "advanced framing", promising us it would save us money.  The framing, done by his crew instead of sub-contractors, took several months longer than it should have, resulting in a huge increase in labor costs.   The inefficiency of his crew and lack of on-site supervision and oversight by the owner also caused numerous other items to have to be re-done - for example, one floor was re-tiled 3 times, another re-tiled 2 times, exposed ceiling beams were put up completely different than the plans specified and had to be re-done.  As we've worked to finish the project, we discovered more items were done incorrectly - including shelf brackets not anchored properly, three spindles coming loose from the banister, and stair risers that came loose by hand.  
    We feel strongly about posting this review in an attempt to save others from the awful experience that we had.  His website states that the job isn't finished until the customer is happy, our experience was the opposite - we weren't happy with the work, the cost was 35% over what we planned to spend and he left us to finish it on our own with no warranty and no one to call noas problems arose with quality of work, now or in the future. Feel free to e-mail us at if you have questions or want to hear more about our experience.
