    Hardin's Garage Door Service
    They responded quickly (the next morning although I called the afternoon before I still think this was a quick response).  We have a very large single garage door and the spring had broke.  Also the rails were bent and some of the rollers came out.  The safety beam was also in disarray.  Hardin replaced both springs, straightened rails and repaired rollers and also realigned safety beam.  Very quick and friendly service.  Door works great now.

    All work was performed with great skill and professionalism.    Rick and his subs are all experienced and ethical people.   I will call Rick again for other projects on my list.

    All of his workers were tied up, so James came out himself and did the repair, so I wouldn't have to wait.  He arrived exactly when he said he would, and, refreshingly, on the front end of the time estimate, rather than the back end.  He explained exactly what he was doing and why.  His explanation of why I will need a new garage door was reasonable, but he told me not to think about it until mine needs another repair and quoted me a price that was about 20% of what I thought it would cost.  I see why the company gets such good reviews, and I will definitely call them for the next repair and to replace the door, when it comes time.

    They did a great job and gave me good advice and guidance on this project. The kitchen remodel included: new custom cabinets upper and lower, new ceiling, repaired some electrical issues, drywall, stained my concrete floors in kitchen, dinning room, and entryway and laundry room, painted cabinets, painted wall, painted in kitchen, dinning room, entry way and laundry room and hall; Replaced a door, light fixtures, sockets, door knobs, I bought the appliances and counter tops and they were there to install or supervise installation. I bought my back splash and they installed that. There were one or two minor issues after the work was done but they cam ASAP to correct the problems. My kitchen looks wonderful a real transformation. As funds come available I will have them continue to use them to get the rest of my home looking as great as my kitchen and dinning room.

    Master Bathroom Shower
    Shower was not installed properly; it is not square which has created problems for the glass shower doors that were installed.  I think it?s important to note that when I mentioned this to Chris, he made a comment to me about ?where did you get these doors and how much did you pay for them?? which offended me and made me second guess the money that I had spent on the doors.  However, at that time, I was not aware that the shower was not square ? he built the frame!!

     Right frame of shower door does not meet tile.  Clear sealant was used to fill the gap from the frame to the tile. 
    Sealant was used around shower door frame and is very visible and messy.  It spreads out onto many of the tiles.
    With the shower opening not being square, the doors have unacceptable adjustments.  Pictures are attached that show doors pulled back to the stops.  Visually you can see the problems because trying to photograph them closed was difficult due to the frame.  Note: At one point, Chris questioned the price of the door and insinuated they seemed cheap.
    Sealant that was applied around frame is messy and left build-up. 
    The grout in the shower was not spaced properly - it looks like the grout lines are double spaced and some of the spacers are stuck in the grout.  I think the wrong type of grout was used.  The shower bench appears to be crumbling, and the grout was not cleaned properly and is everywhere.  It looks horrid.
    Grout along tile on ceiling that meets the sheetrock ceiling is very messy and left all over ceiling, which had already been painted.
    Grout is also cracking in many places. New Cabinet in Master Bath
    Drawer will not close to sit flush against the cabinet.  This cabinet also has a drawer that I requested be no larger than 10? and it is 14 1/2? deep!
    On the newly installed cabinet, there is a visible saw blade cut on the side that faces the door of the bathroom & mirror.  I really, really cannot believe that a professional contractor did this!   
    Ceiling sheetrock was not cut out and replaced where old light box was removed.  Chris should have cut out and put a new piece in before the crown molding was installed.  It was understood that Chris knew he was supposed to patch sheetrock!  He was not responsible for floating sheetrock or painting. Light Fixture
    New light fixture was installed but does not sit flush against wood/wall.  Also, when we purchased the light fixtures, we purposely bought them to match in the master bath and the hall bath. When they were installed, they were not placed in the same position in both bathrooms ? I understand that one has 3 lights and the other has two, but we wanted them to hang over the mirror at the same length. He certainly did not pay attention to detail here.
    Woodwork was installed prior to the mirror.  Mirror was glued onto wall.  There was about 2/16? to ¼? space between mirror and the molding.  Chris gave me measurements for mirror and I had them cut at a local glass company.  The mirror did not sit on backsplash across the bottom.  Discussed with Chris, his response was ?have the painters caulk it?.  We feel he should have addressed and corrected.  It doesn?t seem like it should matter if a wall may not be square or whatever problems arise, we expected things to be addressed and corrected when necessary.   Instead, we were told after the fact, ?Oh, your wall was not straight?.  Chris did come back and add a ½? strip around the mirror that covers the gaps around mirror.  I, Tammy, attempted to buy some tinted caulk to fill the gap at the bottom of mirror and backsplash.  You will see from the pictures that the color was not exactly correct.  We feel Chris should have addressed and corrected all these issues with the mirror.  After the fact, Chris said to me, ? there were two options for installing the wood molding and mirror and in hindsight I should have mounted the mirror and then installed the molding? Bi-Fold Doors     ·         There is a large gap (1/4? to ½?) between doors when they are closed. Shoe Molding
    Entering bath to the left, molding was never installed.
    Molding was not installed under vanity. The work completed in our bathroom (and everywhere?) seems to lack attention to detail, is very unsatisfactory, and does not appear professionally done and we have discussed our concerns with Chris numerous times.  Hall Bathroom
    The glass front doors for new cabinet were built 4? too narrow.  The doors were delivered on and my painters painted the doors.  The doors were picked up glass was cut.  No one ever checked to confirm that the doors delivered were the correct size (what Chris ordered).  On or around December 12th, Chris came to install doors and finally realized they were too narrow.  Chris was sure to tell me that he ordered the correct size but the manufacturer sent the wrong size.  He did not offer to order new ones, instead gave me two options for correcting them: insert a middle board or reduce the size of the opening by making the trim casing around the door larger. He removed a piece around the front of the cabinet to compensate for the mistake.  At this point in the process, I did agree to this alteration however, I?m sharing this because I feel it points to the lack of attention to detail as the doors could and should have been checked soon after delivery.  One thing we would like to point out, we really never saw Chris make any notes in a notebook regarding measurements or details from conversations.  We did witness Chris make notations on the wall, but we feel having notes and measurements would have been extremely beneficial.
    New fixtures were installed in bath tub/shower.  In the picture below, I have marked a tile which fell off after installation.  The tile was glued back and never re-grouted.  Also, the grout around tub and tile was missing about 2? under the faucet, which was never re-grouted after the new fixture was installed.
    The faucet handles at the sink are not in the same ?off? position.  You will see in the picture below that the handle to the left stops at a far different spot than the handle to the right.
    Please note in the picture below, the bottom right corner under the ¼? strip that was required to cover gap in the mirror in this bathroom was glued to the mirror without removing the barcode label.
     Light above mirror; please see pictures of the light fixtures in both bathrooms.  As you can see, it is the same style fixture with identical mounting base but they were not hung at the same place.  Again, a complete lack of attention to detail.  Since the molding and mirror are the same height from the ceiling, the light fixtures should hang at the same place in both bathrooms. Storm Door ? Installed at Front Door
    We purchased a new Pella storm door.  After CA Construction?s installation, you had to lift the handle up to open the door.  We realized that the handle on the door had been installed up-side-down and my neighbor corrected the door handle to push down the next day.   When this was mentioned to Chris, his response was ?we did not see how to do it any other way?.
    The door was not hung properly and there is a large gap at the bottom which defeats the purpose of having a storm door as this gap allows debris and rain to seep into the house.  Again, we are left wondering whether they just don?t care or lack the knowledge that is needed to complete such a seemingly easy task professionally. Kitchen Backsplash
    Pictures attached of backsplash after it was installed, I was extremely upset with this and wrote notes which I placed on counter and sticky notes on tiles for Chris on 11/7/12.  Chris came by to pick up a check left for him.  He let me a note that day that we would work on and correct.  No one ever came and addressed the problems.
    The backsplash is not installed professionally!  There is still this ?stuff? that is at the bottom of tile and still comes over onto my quartz counter top.
    My backsplash is not level or smooth.  It seems they did not sit it flush against the wall and dried this way. 
    Please refer to pictures.  I really don?t know what else to say about it!

    Chris Allen was straight forward. Many people in construction related businesses will tell you one thing and do another, will tell you they will be there just to put off a little longer . Chris did not do this , but was straight forward and honest from the start. Those people do these things becasue they must keep thier crew working and are trying to juggle jobs and jobs often take longer than expected. (just part of the nature of the industry) they mistakenly think they have to say the "right" thing to the customer. What these lies do in truth is to erode customer satifaction and trust. Chris Allen did none of this. As silly as the subject may seem, this often has so much to do with peoples fructration with builders. Chris understands this and does what he says he will do. The jobsite is kept reasonably clean, the work is done correctly, and the fellow is available. My only hesitation of giving the boy too good a review is I want him to be available in a few months when I am ready for the next thing on the list.

    Mr. Shedd has been a delight to work with. He is a master with a paint brush. He is very attentive to details, provides suggestions that enhance the project and saves money at the same time. I highly recommend him for any renovation is incomplete...still in progress

    Kalos Inc
    The project started in April and due to what was involved went about 8 weeks. Sid and his crew are very professional and committed to getting things right. They were on sight every day (5 days/week) and Sid was also present inspecting the work usually several times a day. The subcontractors that did the dry wall, brick work, cabinet work, electrical and painting were also well managed. Sid required a couple of things to be reworked that were not up to his standards. The punch list we generated about 4 weeks after completion was also handled in a very timely manner and all issues resolved to out satisfaction.

    I would recommend Kalos in that the commitment to getting it done and done right is better than my past experience with other contractors that start more than one project and are not there every day. I have talked to Sid several times since the completion and he has come by a couple of times to answer questions.

    Round Da House
    As you can see, I continue to hire Mike for ALL of my home repair needs. They arrive when they say they will arrive, they keep you posted if they are going to pick up materials or going to lunch. Mike will tell you what he thinks the job will cost, what they could find that might alter that price and is fair. He will tell you if it's a job that requires a specific professional. He will recommend ways to achieve the desired result that could save a homeowner money. He and his assistant are trustworthy and conscientious. I have no problem leaving them to work in my home if I am not there, I can think of few others I can say the same of. I will hire Mike and Dorsey for all of my future projects, without a moment's hesitation.
