    I am a longtime customer, having had many projects completed by American construction services. All of the work was done professionally and totally to my satisfaction. They never took money down and I didn't have to pay until the job was completed.

    Joshua, owner of this business, is hardworking, honest, cheerful, and performs quality work. As a widow, I have come in contact with businesses that try to sell me more services than I need. I have no worries like this with Joshua. I have been doing business with him for a few years now and am so thankful that I found such a great handyman.
    Most recently he replaced my dry well and it is working fine.
    I had quite a problem with water in my basement following rain or snow melt. Last year I had Joshua replace a basement wall - he is one of a few who can properly perform masonry work. Now, prior to hiring Joshua to do such a big job, I did call other companies for an estimate of the cost and for knowledge about how they would fix my problem of water in my basement. I also asked for references from each of these companies. Not only did Joshua come in below the other companies in price, his references were outstanding! Not one person had a bad thing to say about him or his work. Some of the references from other
    highly rated companies were not so good and some told me to stay away from them. Needless to say, I hired Joshua and he did a great job replacing my basement wall and I now have a dry basement.
    Recently I replaced the linoleum on my kitchen floor. Yes, I had Joshua do it and anther great job by an expert handyman!!
    Joshua is trustworthy - he will tell you if he can perform a job or not. To date I have not found anything this fellow cannot do and do with expertise.
    I highly recommend calling Joshua for fixing any problem areas inside or outside of your home!!

    Jeff and his crew arrived at the scheduled time and removed all the rotted paneling and framing that had deteriorated over the years. They patched the walls and removed the floor tiles then smoothed the floor and painted the walls. The entire basement including all the joists and subflooring was sprayed with mold killer a couple times. Jeff left his industrial dehumidifier with us a few days to give the room a good drying and a decent start for our dehumidifier to maintain.

    The Nu-Life crew were pleasant to deal with every step of the way and they waste no time on the job. They did a ton of work in a very short time, made sure all openings to the upstairs living spaces were blocked with plastic sheeting while they worked and left no debris during or after the job.

    The basement looks and SMELLS terrific.  

    We couldn't be happier with the result.

    Highly recommend Nu-Life

    Working with Mensur was great, his price was a third of the cost of contractors that I interviewed. He showed up at the times he said daily had a great sense of humor and had great advice on each project. One of the things I liked the most was he constantly looked for ways to save me money on materials,including recommending vendors and often giving his contractor discount on to me. When I went for materials he was there helping pick out quality products and not over priced items at expensive stores. LMN was very professional and cleaned up after themselves daily which I appreciated very much. My basement came out amazing. Mensur did everything plumbing,electrical,tiling,drop ceiling and built a custom wainscoting with access panel for my jacuzzi tub(not included)and building custom base for my very large shower. Everything was done before the deadline I had set for this very large project to be completed. At first he didn't seem very friendly but once I got to work with him he was funny and friendly. I would highly recommend LMN to anyone who's on a budget and want fast friendly service. I have had contractors in the past that showed when they feel like it, Mensur was there from the beginning of the project till the end working 8-12 hour days to finish my project. Cost is for labor only.

    C&J worked with me through the  proposed design  and construction and explained all the steps and material selection for the project.
    They were very professional and diligent in all phases of the project. They completed the work as promised and I was very pleased with the end product, a finished basement with a custom bar and full featured entertainment system.
    I made one design change in the course of the project and they worked with me to accommodate the change with no additional cost.
    I would highly recommend C & J.

    They seemed nice enough. They seemed like honest people. They have been around for many, many years. We aren't going to do the remodeling but we are going to put in the sump pump at some point. We probably would trust them to do the job.

    They are really nice and very good. They did a clean and professional job. People who came to work with him was really professional. They were on time, just finished the work like two or three days before the day they gave us. I recently try to call them back in for the new house basement because it's really far from them to come here now and they are really busy to sign, but since I was in a time restraint I couldn't call them up. They said I can't do and so I had to find somebody else but they are really good people. I would use them again.

    The price wasn't the lowest, but I had the best confidence in this contractor.  The quality of work was very good.  He was reliable - at first - and punctual.  The only issue I had was that he didn't follow-up at the very end.  The two things that were left undone were to complete the electrical wiring for the outlets associated with the cabinetry and trim the bottom of the door after the carpeting was installed.  He promised to return to do those things (even though he made a comment about the carpeting guys being responsible for trimming the bottom of the door [?]).  However, he never did.  I ended up doing the door myself and hired a handyman to complete the electrical work.  Next time, I'll be sure to withhold final payment until everything is completely done.  I won't take someone's word that they'll come back to finish the minor items.

    They did an excellent job. I was very happy with the owner of the business for doing such a fantastic job. He was very knowledgeable. He actually identified the problem that I had with termites around the framing of the window and he took care of all that for me. I thought his pricing was very reasonable. I will use him again if I have to.

    Joe is very trustworthy and did a very good job for us. His foundation team was very professional and I was very happy with their work.

    I requested some carpentry work to connect the new foundation with the existing walls and replace the floor joists. Kinetic subcontracted this job out to a carpenter. I was not happy with his work and he was very creepy and unprofessional. He smoked inside our house (we are not smokers) and creeped my wife out to the point that she came home and left immediately upon meeting him.

    I would recommend Kinetic highly for their basement and masonry work. Joe and his team are excellent. I would not have them contract anything out though. Find another contractor on Angie's List.
