    ABE Painting
    We have used ABE Painting a handful of times over the years and will continue to use them in the future. Tim and his crew are always friendly, fair and professional. I can't say enough good things about them!

    Steve Conness Construction
    First, he offered to do it at no charge given my predicament. He worked it in his already busy schedule. He fabricated and installed crown molding. He removed and replaced interior trim. He did an artistic pattern with travertine along a backsplash and arched window that was above and beyond what we expected or what the average providers will do. He installed patio door and side lights, but first demolished the entire exterior wall and added extension to create a show-like view outside the room. Our kitchen is a show piece. Friends have commented, "it look like something straight out of a magazine!"

    A-1 Mr Handyman
    My wife said it best, "He was good at one thing...taking our money every week." 
    I'll start with the fact that we were left with no way to bathe in either of our two bathrooms by the time A-1 Mr. Handyscam was finished. They destroyed their own tiling job in our master bath along with destroying the shower/tub combo and leaving us with a non-diverting tub spout, faucets that have to be turned on/off with a screwdriver and a bunch of half-removed black caulk that they thought would look nice with their botched tile work. The upstairs bathroom on the other hand, also a complete re-do left us with a shower that turned on, but drained out of a broken pipe through our kitchen ceiling onto the floor. General attention to detail and finishing capabilities just don't exist with these guys.


    Their idea of fixing the drain pipe that was not done to code (no trap) and damage they caused by over tightening the drain cap with washers in the wrong place? Spray some leak repair all over the pipes. That didn't work either. Finally paid another plumber over $500 to fix that, get it to code, and get the upstairs sink plumbed and running. Unfortunately we didn't want to pay extra to have the crappy tile job fixed. Nothing like seeing the bar code from tiles facing out on the wall and seeing clearly where nothing lines up to help anger me every morning I walk in. But that's only because I can't use my own bathroom that they destroyed and never repaired. 


    Next is their inability to accurately estimate timing and costs on jobs. We gave an itemized list of changes to be quoted. That list definitely grew over time, but everything we were quoted on was about 3x more expensive and took 3x longer than originally quoted. That might be OK, except every piece of work we had done was either unfinished, poorly executed or both. There was some quality work done in some areas, but the quality disappears when the job isn't finished. The only quality work I can log was done by Tom himself, and unfortunately that work went unfinished. Today I was up a ladder tacking flashing back onto the upstairs window that was installed. They decided to remove more siding than needed to rough in the window and left it all exposed and never finished with the Tyvek that should've gone up until we could re-side. 


    Some details on different jobs performed...
    Door installations: interior slab doors were not properly painted (and painted while on hinges). Maybe old rollers were used, because there are bits of roller painted onto the doors which are rough to touch, like the paint was watered down to save money - even though we bought the paint! Painted on hinges so hinges are covered and paint drips on floor where each door was painted. 

    Front door: could've been a decent job, except off plumb and never finished staining the outside frame that was built.

    Back door: roughed out and left unfinished exposed plaster walls, got the door nice and stained up with dirty hands while installing, and lost the alarm sensor on the original door (thrown away)

    Painting: some decent work, but all done before major construction so now loads of damage to the paint and wear and tear from other work done after. Painted several hinges shut, and even a light switch. Careless.

    Master Bathroom: already talked about both bathroom botches. Glad to be writing this review with the ability to shower without going to our daughter's home or a hotel. Here's more details. $10/sq ft marble tiles destroyed after they turned on the tile heating pad they installed instead of letting it cure for 30 days like the installation manual instructed. Over-tightened light fixture at switch so it shorted out a couple weeks later. Put black caulk in for seams (artistic choice?) and then 1/2 stripped out when we asked for white, never finishing, and leaving the shower unsealed/not waterproof. Incorrectly plumbed the tub/shower (shower permanently on, faucets don't turn on without uncapping and using a screwdriver. Never worked but they called it finished. Now we have to demo the wall, replumb and retile from the ground up. Two new plumbers have said "I've never seen anything quite like this!" and they weren't paying a compliment.

    Upstairs Bathroom: Drain gaskets installed incorrectly and overtightened so leaking and had to replace broken gasket set. No trap plumbed in the drain pipe. Sink pipes were clogged from tiling buys washing grout down bathroom sink; had to be cleaned and re-installed. New sink was hung but never plumbed and connected to pipes. Tiled over outlets and cut tile wrong so can't install plates over GFI and lightswitch without re-cutting and finding an oversize plate. Some tiles on wall face outward so you see the purchase barcode. Left ceiling over shower unfinished. 

    Wood floors: They were supposed to sand and refinish the floors. They didn't sand between coats of poly so now there's bubbling on the floors all over downstairs and they'll have to be redone again. In addition they didn't plug any holes in the floor, so I've got poly all over boxes and other items we were storing in the basement. They did manage to sand right into the co-ax cable coming out of the floor though. Bonus points for not paying attention.

    Upstairs kid bedroom: painted accent wall with chalkboard paint but managed to get it on the ceiling and opposing walls but never cleaned up. Installed beautiful casement window but tore out more siding than needed and left outside unfinished with galvanized flashing and original plywood exposed. Never came back to finish. 

    Electrical work: replaced some outlets (OK), but replaced a GFI in the kitchen and drove a nail into it... caused shorting problems with back of house until an electrician came out to fix it. Wired and incorrectly installed a back stairwell 'night light' that never worked until electrician fixed. 


    The sad thing about all this is when we met Tom we liked him and trusted him. Apparently that was our big mistake. The work HE actually did was well done, but never really completed to the point where we don't have to do something else to finish or fix it. The work his contractors did was just poorly executed. They just didn't care or don't have the skills to do things properly. As a result, almost everything they've done except install some floating click-lock flooring is having to be finished, cleaned up, or demolished and redone from the ground up. Catastrophic waste of money, and they just vanished and moved on to the next chump waiting to pay once the 1 month turned 4 month job money-pot ran out. My biggest gripe is we ended up in a hotel and spending an additional $4,000+ in room fees only to "finally" move in and have no working bathrooms and work still being done. 
    Highly unrecommended.

    ABE Painting
    ABE Painting was the best choice I could make for a contractor. My estimate was professionally done.The crew was committed to completing  the job with expertise.They repaired cracks, primed when necessary and put on 2 coats of paint.      They allowed for my input on the project and were very careful with my things.I would highly  endorse them for your next job.

    The Painting Company
    Dave and his crew were given the job to completely repaint our house we purchased last summer. Their attention to detail and overall painting ability is excellent. They strive to provide a superior product. They repainted our kitchen cabinets at their cost due to how unhappy they were with a new Benjamin Moore product the company introduced, even though it looked fine to me the homeowner. Their communication is good, and when they say they will be there, you can bank on it. They are reasonable with their pricing and are very fair pricing changes and add-ons and never once did I feel like they were trying to stick it to me in terms of their bill. Granted, a project this size is always going have a few bumps in the road, especially when multiple contractors are on a single house and this project was no exception. You can count on them to work with you on any issues that come along in the project. When working with other contractors like drywall, what is good enough for the drywall contractor in regards to finish coats and getting ready for painting often isn't good enough for The Painting Company and Dave won't put his reputation on anything that isn't up to their standards, even if it means the drywall people have to come back. Overall, we are happy with the end result!

    Beaty Painting Co
    The work took 2 5-day weeks, including masking and power washing in preparation.  I estimated they put in about 90 man-hours.  High quality paint was used and invoices for all materials provided (at my request).  Acryllic paint used on metal doors.  I was able to approve colors (2) before paint was purchased.  All rain gutter down-spouts were removed for painting and then properly and firmly reattached.  Excellent appearance and cleanup complete.  The porch ceiling required extensive scraping and re-texturing.  Minor repair of flashing with wood screws was done around back door of garage without my request and at no extra charge - it had never been done properly when the house was new 13 years ago.  
    A little pricy, perhaps, but he delivered a quality job.  Roger Beaty's business card says he has been in business since 1983.  He painted my house , interior and exterior, when it was new in 2000.

    The Painting Company
    Dave, Lynne, and Crew did an amazing job on our home. We initially contacted The Painting Company in February, and Dave and Lynne came to visit our house and give us a price within a week of our first email. We needed repairs on the soffits and faschia boards of our 1950s home, and we told them we would take care of the repairs ourselves before they came out to paint when the weather warmed up. We were unable to complete the repairs on time, because the job was much bigger than a couple of DIYers could handle. Dave and Lynne were very understanding, even though it pushed into their schedule, and even worked to find someone who could complete the repairs for us. The carpenter they recommended did a great job. I had planned to be at home when they painted, so they could get into the house as needed, but due to a family emergency, I had to be gone the week they were here. They again worked with us and even fed our cats while we were gone! Their attention to detail was great - they painted around the windows in coordinating colors even though we hadn't thought of that before. They pressure washed the house before painting, which was quite a job, as our house hadn't been pressure washed in quite a while. The quality of the paint job is great. The only slightly disappointing thing was the leftover paint chips from the pressure washing that were left in our back yard. When we contacted Dave and Lynne about the paint chips, they offered to come out and clean it up, which was really great of them. They also brought us extra paint after the work was done that wasn't left at the house on the last work day. They clearly care about the work they do and their customers. We have received several compliments from our neighbors and couldn't be happier with the final result!

    ABE Painting
    ABE Painting has done some touch up painting inside my home, they have re-stained/finished my wood front doors, and they have painted my chimney.
     
    The ABE team was very professional. The estimate was very reasonable and the work was good quality. They were easy to work with, answered questions I had and got the job done in a timely manner. I would recommend them to anyone and I will be calling them back to do more painting at my home.

    Monty's Roofing & Home Imprvmt

    • Work started weeks later than promised.
    • Half of the roof was completed then the other half waited for the roofers return more than a week.
    • New shingles and new copper flashing were put over rotten decking. This was corrected when we caught it.
    • The work area was to be tarped, it was not and they were messy.
    • Someone (roofer says painter/painter says roofer) destroyed not one but TWO basement windows.
    • Bid price increased, part of this was due to a mis-estimate of copper amount and/or price; even though copper was quoted.
    Our roof looks great - we still need paint, are out 75% of the cost plus the windows - but I would caution anyone entering into a contract. Get every single thing in writing, even the small stuff. Check the work as it is in progress, that is how we caught the rotten decking.

    Apex Construction Service, LLC
    They did a great job. The work was done quickly and accurately. Working for an architectural firm, I deal with a wide range of contractors. I ended up recommending Apex to my coworkers.
