    Paint Life Inc
    We recently purchased a home built in the 1950's that while well taken care of by the owners who lived there 60+ years was now in need of freshening up/brightening/updating. Rich and Donald were extremely knowledgeable in their estimate for the work required (painting and beyond normal scope of painters), timely in the estimate and their timeframe determination and professional in the presentation of their services. Marlow and Terry who were the two main "workers" (along with the team of Rich and Donald) were amazing in their expertise and the detail oriented work with a few challenges throughout the job. They remained professional at all times while adding the perfect touch of kindness, caring and personal approach with many laughs at times shared with us and the many other "characters" who appeared to give other work estimates, make deliveries and visit to see work in progress. We would highly recommend the company as well as the "team" that equaled success and happy/satisfied customers! Lynne & Kevin (May 2019).

    Handyman Andy
    Andy sells himself short by labeling himself a handyman. He is a craftsman. He did a beautiful job completely rebuilding our back deck, taking great care on every last detail. He had terrific ideas and took pride in building something that will last. He also did it for a great price, on time and on budget. He always showed up exactly when he said he would. Meanwhile, he was unfailingly pleasant and sweet to our baby and dog. Need something built or fixed? You need some Andy in your life.

    It was a delight to do business with A Plus Handyman Services of Hopewell Junction. They were punctual, professional and the work was performed to our best expectations. They did the job in a timely manner and the price was well worth it. Will definitely call upon them for future work.

    Handyman Andy
    Andy shows great passion and pride in his work, gets the job done with high quality and professionalism.
    He is one of the very few with these qualities - very punctual and carries out the task with great attention to detail. Also he would make recommendations that put the clients first, not over billing purposes.
    We will definitely use him again and again.

    John knocked it out of the park and did an excellent job. I bought a large mailbox and I was not sure how it would look at the post, but it looks amazing and a nice fit for the post. Highly recommended, and thanks again for the pro job John!

    Local Dad Repairs

    In dealing with Localdadrepairs in the beginning, I indicted if they were too busy, to please let me know so as it wouldn't be a waste of time. Oh, the irony.  I feel ultimately Mr. Eckes  probably has bigger jobs to do and just wasn't interested, although I tried extremely hard to make this happen, even to the point of deleting my original review in a last ditch attempt to get the work done because of a possible misunderstanding. The beauty of Angie's List is there is more than one game in town, and less expensive. I picked Localdadrepairs because of the good reviews.

     Things started out well with Mr. Eckes doing an estimate and sending me an itemized list of all the jobs.  I did not sign the estimate at that time, because the mailbox installation wasn't on there, and I wanted to pick my own door, rather than the one Mr. Eckes picked, which would have significantly changed the estimate.  It accomplished the same thing (a storm door, and was quite a bit cheaper). I was satisified with all other aspects of the estimate, and wanted Mr. Eckes to do the job. I sent him a link with the door I wanted, to make sure the door would be ok to make sure there were no issues after I bought it.  I also asked Mr. Eckes if he was still interested in the mailbox job; he had mentioned a couple of possibilities of location, but I wanted it in a specific spot and got the spot oked with the USPS, and asked him he still wanted to do it.  That was the only item that I politely asked to do soon, because of the weather getting colder and having to build a base.

     The last communications I had with Mr. Eckes was Sept 26th, and I waited a week before feeling it was enough time that Mr. Eckes wasn't interested n the job-being I want to get the work done, I sent him a note saying I would be going in a different direction. To my surprise he responded by saying he had me scheduled, and had communicated with me this past Tuesday. At that point, I triple checked my emails, and found nothing from Tuesday, or anything from the past week. At this point I asked Mr. Eckes if he could send me the email, because I hadn't gotten it, and also said basically "ok, it appears we had a misunderstanding, lets do it" and was prepared to write a down payment check if Mr. Eckes wanted to pick it up that day to assure him I wanted his services (mentioned in the email. I kept these emails if anyone wanted to see that I truly tried to make this happen).

      I felt on Mr. Eckes part for his failure to show me the email that I was in the queue for and his lack of response on my part to say lets do it indicated he was just not interested in the job anymore. I was at no point rude or disrespectful to Mr. Eckes or his very pleasant wife Terri. When I hadn't heard from him after a week, I even sent a separate note asking if there were any issues (kept that email as well, which was also disregarded.)

     So to summarize, my limited dealings with Mr. Eckes and his wife were pleasant, and he seems like a very capable contractor. With that said, it's not my first rodeo dealing with contractors; perhaps there was a bigger job on the horizon (I saw a recent one reviewed for $78,000) but it became clear to me that the problem wasn't a misunderstanding , Mr. Eckes was just not interested in the job. Perhaps he took exception to the fact that I choose a $150 door instead of one for $728, who knows. I just wish contractors would realize the customers time is quite as valuable as theirs.

     A tip for future Localdadrepairs customers: once they stop communicating with you, it appears that is their way of saying they aren't interested, and I would try another contractor. I'm still looking for the "phantom" email Mr. Eckes sent me saying they scheduled me for the work later this month. I have my emails and Mr. Eckes as well (or lack thereof in replies to mine) and would be glad to share them. The good news is I already found another Angie's list contractor (who shall remain nameless as to not have appearances of promoting anyone) and his responses have been exceptionally quick, as well as quite a bit cheaper, with work already set up to begin this week.

      In the past, I've dealt with contractors who magically disappear because a bigger job would come along, and you'd never hear from them again. Regardless of why Localdadrepairs didn't want the work, I stated from the getgo to please let me know if they were too busy, and would have been fine. Also, I would have had much more respect if they had just come out and said they were not interested and why rather than just stop communicating.  I also feel I can find a contractor that is much less pricey, and my experience with Localdadrepairs was hugely disappointing.

     Updated 10/08/14 I have to address Mr. Eckes reply, as much of it is simply inaccurate:  
        1) I grant Angieslist the right to have anyone see my emails in that I was anything less than I was unfailingly polite and have proof I said the project could wait, and it fact encouraged it -except the mailbox-in fact, Mr Eckes made two suggestions where it could go-but not where I wanted it, and I said called the USPS for approval of the spot (and I can prove that as well).  I had to turn on the furnace the other night, and as anyone can tell you who lives in NY, its starting to get cold. I guess "everything" covered under Localdadrepairs doesn't include mailboxes.    
    I did not ask for immediate approval on the door-I was actually quite patient on the door. For whoever has ordered a door and its not the right fit, it's a hassle to bring it back, which would have been on me, not Mr. Eckes.  Why is it a "problem" that I choose a $150 door instead of $725? and asked for an approval?  I'm not trying to impress the neighbors. Any by "looking" at the door, I simply sent a link, which would have taken two seconds. Would you buy a door without at least getting it checked out first? I waited a week-if being extra cautious about a purchase is a problem, so be it. 
    Also a quote from Mr. Eckes wife Terri : "Please let me also know what the status is with the door-(did you order it? when is it due to come in, because we need to have the materials at least on their way before we schedule that)."  I never did receive an ok on the door from Mr. Eckes, so I wasn't about to order the door until I did.   3) I stand by my original status that they just couldn't be bothered because they are too busy (and it's pretty much stated so in the reply).  I've already made an agreement with another top rated contractor to have my mailbox installed where I choose-I think he would disagree I'm a "problem person". (wink) I would encourage people to look at the August 5th review as well about communication problems. Mr. Eckes will simply just cut you off period if he doesn't like reasonable requests.    4) I offered Mr. Eckes a same day deposit in a sincere effort to let him know I wanted to do the job in good faith, but he did not respond-I can prove this as well, upon request. Strangely, he failed to mention that in his reply. Again, an indicator he wasn't interested in the job (email available upon request). I indicated I very much wanted to do the job, which contradicts the statement I hadn't agreed to the contract (and again, offered a same day deposit). Mr Eckes did not reply.  
    5) I accepted awhile ago that this was a case of "contractoritis" and the company has more work than it can handle-been there, done that that's fine, and I'm being made out to be the bad guy, Simply not true. Is waiting a week for a reply more than reasonable? I think so. In my review, I felt I was quite fair and said Localdadrepairs were nice people and capable contractors.    6) If you look at the review of August 5th, Mr. Eckes simply stopped communicating with those clients as well.................see a pattern developing here?     7) Here is my last email to Mr. Eckes, word for word:   "Jeff,  I'm really confused as to whats going on here. If you had me set up later in the month, lets do business. I never found the communications from Tuesday (why I was hoping you would resend the email) Do you want me to send you a check per the original estimate (instead of with the new door?) Ill order the new door, but would have felt better if you oked it, just so theres no problems later. Perhaps there is some kind of miscommunication, I really want to do this (sans the mailbox, because I HAD to get a contractor before it gets cold. If you want to pick up the check, stop by the house and Ill be glad to write it out. Lets definitively do this one way or the other. If you said you said me an email last Tuesday with a schedule for the work, I believe you-I just did not get the email and thought you guys weren't interested. I can get another contractor, I just feel s***** because you seem to be wondering what going on with me, and I thought you were no longer interested in the job. I'm not a gameplayer-lets do this! (if you still want to)." 
      Does this sounds like a problem client to you?  (Mr. Eckes did not respond to this email as well.).  Mr. Eckes assertion he responded about oking the door/revised quote/would meet my needs: never happened, and encourage Mr. Eckes  to show any emails (sans the mailbox which was time sensitive) that I demanded anything, simply not true. Some quotes from my emails:  "Offering to work on Jeff's schedule" "Are there any concerns you guys have?" "if you want to pick up the check, stop by and I'll be glad to write it out"
      Yup, I was very difficult (wink).  
    PS I would change the wording from "no project too small or large"...............except mailboxes ;)

    Local Dad Repairs
    They had gotten a lot of good reviews that I saw, and they were very easy to work with and friendly on the phone, and the prices were reasonable. He was very flexible. When he did come out and see me, he worked around my work schedule, which was really great. I felt that he was accommodating of my schedule, and things that I asked him if it needed to be done. He was very honest about things that I should get done or that I didn’t really need, so I felt like they were very honest and helpful.

    Robert Bumbolow Remodeling & Repair

    Met appointment for inspection and detailed estimate.  Took time to explain what would be done, materials required, and time to complete the work.  He fulfilled all that he promised and more, taking pride in finishing details, and ensuring that I was more than satisfied with the completed job.
