    Bob Hunter construction
    He is a little on the pricey side but I would trust him and anyone he trusts without either of us being here. He's consciences about cleaning up afterward and very detail oriented. They had to go through concrete in the basement to make room for the elevator. it was a major job. they added an addition to a roof on our porch they did an absolutely excellent job. I would highly recommend them. It was more expensive than we expected but we didn't have to worry about anything and he took care of everything. You get what you pay for. It took 6 months for everything to finish.

    Joseph and Gloria St Andrews (Josephs Home Repair


    Joseph was hired to do the following jobs:

    1) Repair an existing deck that had been improperly laid on a poor foundation causing the deck to sag, and boards in the center of the deck to tear loose.  Pressure wash and water seal the deck, and repair some loose bannister railings.

    2) Pressure wash my house, and clean out the gutters; both of which were done very poorly.

    3) replace rotted and worn front porch bannisters.

     After about 30 minutes of inspection he gave me a quote on a contractors form and requested 600.00 up front for "materials" with the balance to be paid at the completion of the work. This seemed reasonable to me considering the amount of repair work that he said needed  to be done.

    He was very pleasant and polite, yes sir, no sir etc.

    He arrived to do the work approx. 2 days later and had 2 other young males and his wife and daughter in law.

       My family and I were away during the day  when the majority of the work was supposed to be completed. After approx. 1 week, I received a phone call requesting the balance of the money. I inspected the deck and noticed that very little "materials" had been used to perform the repair but it looked ok at the time and he assured me "the deck is solid now" , "I guarantee my work" so I paid him the balance for the work.(1000.00)  He had me to write the checks in his wife's name ( this should have been a red flag!)

     what I later realized after about a week, when the deck dried out ,was  that the pressure washing of the deck along with the rain we were having that week made the wood flatten back out and instead of replacing the boards as he had promised, he simply just re screwed the old boards back into place with new screws, giving the appearance that the work had been done. At that time, he only replaced 3 boards on the deck total and re secured some bannister railing.

    After about a week when the deck had time to dry out, all the boards came back up, including the new ones he had replaced.

    I called Joseph and left several messages with no return call whatsoever.

    I had written the work off as a loss until I happened upon his residence on Jamestown road where a large pink prominent sign is displayed in his yard that says "Josephs home repair", I confronted him in his yard and asked him when he was going to complete the work. After a few days he came back to re wash the house and did a little more work on the deck but it was still unsatisfactory .

    He reassessed the repair work and determined that he had not repaired the deck properly and he would "make it right"

    weeks went by and after several calls and threatening to take him to court, he still has not completed the work so I have been forced to take him to court.

    this guy is an absolute scammer, although one of the politest I have ever met.

    Riley & Son Handyman Services
    Perfect.  Hard workers.  Showed up with the washer and had it installed quickly.  The dishwasher took longer and was more complicated since the space had to made for it and the electric outlet had to be put in.  They were excellent.  Personable, professional, could not be better.  I already have a new list of things for them  to do next time.

    Riley & Son Handyman Services
    Gene gave me a written estimate and contract right away. He and his sons did such a fine job - very punctual and professional. I was so pleased with the initial work that I hired them to rehab most of my house. They replaced all the flooring, replaced paneling with sheet rock, painted the house inside and porch outside. They also installed vanity, commode, flooring, and replaced doors in one bath after painting it. They also power washed my house, built a door for outside storage unit, installed ceiling fans and outlets where needed. I am very pleased with the work and cost.

    Riley & Son Handyman Services
    Gene Riley of Riley and Sons is a very professional, reliable and dependable person. I hired Gene to install a fence for my dogs, I
    explained to him that I did not want to spend a lot of money and he provided an estimate that could not be beat. He even went so far as to go to Home Depot and put all the supplies on a cart for me to go in and pay for (which most contractors will not let you do) and put on will call so that he could pick them up the next day to complete the fence installation. The fence was just what I wanted and the work performed was outstanding. As a matter of fact, I was so impressed with his work and business ethic that I have hired him to install a doggie door. I will hire Gene and his team for any of my projects going forward and I highly recommend him to others. He is certainly an outstanding person!

    He seemed like a nice guy but based on the total flake out I would not recomend this contractor.
