    Gibson General Contracting Inc
    Would definitely hire again. James and his crew were professional yet personable. His estimate was very detailed and the cost was the same as the other estimates I got. He supervised his crew closely. He worked hard to get my backsplash tiles level even though the wall was not level. When there was an issue with the plumbing under the kitchen sink, (a job that should have taken a half hour) he stayed for hours to make it right and to get the job done. (He said he didn't want me to have to use the laundry sink as a kitchen sink any longer.) He rearranged his schedule to get my backsplash torn out on short notice so my countertops could be installed. He rearranged his schedule again in order to do the work the week I was on vacation. Not many contractors would be that accommodating! He and his crew cleaned up so well, they even cleaned things that were dirty when they arrived! My only complaint is the sometimes slow response to emails, but James does give out his cell phone number and is happy to accept calls, I just didn't want to disturb him on a job. It also took awhile to get on the schedule. He IS very busy, but in my mind that's a GOOD thing; if you're that in demand you must be good. I love how everything turned out and I was very happy with the whole experience. James is very knowledgeable and can do just about anything around the house. Highly recommend.

    Eric and his team are amazing. Professional, on time and neat. My kitchen was clean for me every night during the 2.5 week process. I trusted them in my house when I had to run out. Eric would work with me as I made decisions and was pleasant as I added more work or changed my mind. Recommend this guys all day long and have already to my neighbors.

    Northern HammerWorks, LLC
    I made a wish list with photos of what I had in mind for a remodel. I met with Nick and gave him a copy. He took measurements of the kitchen and sent me an estimate for the labor which included some basic materials. He referred me to one of his suppliers for the tile flooring and quartz counter top. I could have purchased just about everything from them, but it was my choice to shop around. I purchased the cabinets and hardware from NEFD, appliances from Stewart's Appliance in Elyria and misc. from Home Depot and Lowe's. I think the total for all materials, appliances, tax, shipping was around $8500. The Hammerworks craftsmen were prompt, courteous hard workers. Every day they cleaned up their work area before they left. Supplies and tools were kept out of the way. I am thrilled with the results. May have taken 4 weeks. I would not hesitate to use them again.

    Della Vella Remodel
    The Master has been a nightmare. I was told it was an eight week project (that started approximately at the end of February) and now I have hired another contractor to gut the master and start over. There has been a complaint filed with the Better Business Bureau, the Attorney General and I am meeting with my attorney next week. I have had the project inspected and the inspector stated the project is not up to code and it was one of the worst jobs he has seen. Mr. Della Vella redid the grout 5 times and it is still crumbling. He installed broken and chipped tiles, the shower drain is not up to code, he sawed through the wall into the master bedroom, he had to paint 4 times to get the paint job right. There is still ceiling paint on the grey walls and grey paint on the celing. I had the house professionally cleaned twice because of the mess that was made. They actually helped themselves to my new vacuum (obvioulsy opening my closet to get it), used my shop vac and some of my painting supplies. Please see the pictures below.

    Kevin did an amazing job. Job came in on time and on budget. Worked with us to build our very reasonable dream kitchen. When needed he brought in the right tradespeople to do the job right. Worked clean, was there when he said he would be and had great ideas of what would be best for our situation. I would highly recommend him. A total pro.

    A. S. Renovation
    Jay did an outstanding job.  He redesigned the plumbing waste and vent piping to be more efficient and less cluttered when viewed from the basement.  He used all copper for supply lines as requested.  Very impressed with the clean look of the plumbing piping layout.  Vent lines had to be re-routed through a new wall up into the attic.

    The bath tile job looks incredible, including the custom niche with glass shelf and the stone decorative accent with pencil tile borders.  The tile layout was very well thought out so that grout lines are where they are supposed to be and well balanced.  The quality of workmanship is outstanding.  The floor tile looks equally as impressive, as does the subway tile installation in the kitchen.

    Jay worked long days and took the time to do things right.  There were no shortcuts taken.  He is an outstanding communicator.  He always explained what he was going to do for the day and asked for input when appropriate.  If he was running a bit late in the morning, he would text to say when he would arrive.

    I will use A. S. Renovation again in the future when the time comes and would recommend Jay to anyone - he is one of the best!

    Odell Construction Inc
    Justin is a great guy, very responsive to the homeowner and a hard worker. It may take a day or two for him to get back to your email but that is because he is working hard, so I had no problem with that. A busy company to me is a sign of a successful, good company.  Justin was the third estimate I received for the work I wanted to have done and his price was the best.  During the purchasing and planning stages Justin was helpful and did not hesitate to answer my questions. His workers were friendly, hard working and obviously competent. The finished job looks great and I am very happy with everything. I will use them again if the situation arises,

    Mr. Handyman of Cleveland's Northwest Suburbs
    Michael Fay and his team just completed a third job for me within the last 9 months. ��These guys show up on time, work quickly and efficiently, and do quality work. ��I have found them to be quite knowledgeable about a diversity of construction related matters. ��They have handled well complex problems that came up during the first two jobs completed for me.

    The first job entailed replacing wood that had rotted over several years due to faulty construction -- water had been leaking through siding -- and required the replacement of structural materials in the garage. ��The situation was much worse than what we suspected before the guys began the job. ��They did a fine job for what I considered to be a fair price.

    They next remodeled the kitchen. ��We chose to keep the original cabinents. ��When the granite installers showed up they discovered that some of the cabinents were not in shape to support the countertops and the cabinents had not been installed properly some 20 years previous. ��Michael offered to rebuild the cabinents with quality plywood -- removing the cheap pressboard material used when these things were manufactured. ��This saved us a lot of money and several weeks of pain that would have come with having a kitchen ripped up while waiting for new cabinents to arrive. ��They did great work also with laying tile and grouting for the back of the countertops.

    Michael and team have shown themselves to be honest and quite skilled in doing many different kinds of work. ��They have skills far beyond what I envision when i hear the word "handyman." ��I would recommend anyone in the Cleveland area to at least get a quote from Michael Fay when considering a home repair or upgrade.

    DW Varady
    David is very professional and has done numerous design/build projects for me over the past 10 years. David's expertise in his field kept me from making critical errors and allowed my costs to align with my budgetary constraints. His workers were professional, polite and courteous to my family while on the job site. They even let my dogs out at lunch time to potty. David was on the job site each and every day to insure the quality and consistency of his product offering.  I am new to Angie's list and would like all to know that D. W. Varady Carpentry Co. is a hidden jewel for those who are looking for a high end design/build contractor.

    North Coast Interiors

    The intent was to change the old shower into a linen closet, remove the corner tub and install a new larger shower in its place.  The new shower was to be tiled, and new vinyl plank flooring was to be installed in the main bath and closet.  The toilet was to move to an adjacent wall and a number of electrical items had to be taken care of such as removing / moving outlets and grounds, centering the over-the-shower light and replacing the closet light (per code), as well as install a new bathroom exhaust fan.  New sliding glass doors w/ a specific frameless slider was to be ordered for the shower enclosure.  A pocket door was to be installed as an entry to the main bath.  Very specific measured plans for the tile layout, bench size, threshold, and placement of plumbing items were drawn up by me and reviewed in detail in two meetings prior to signing the contract and the start of construction. 

    Prior to construction, I purchased the pocket door and all of its hardware for installation, the linen closet doors & framing and hardware, a new heating register, the tile, decorative trim, shelves, travertine floor mosaics, grout, caulking, etc.,  the plumbing fixtures (from Welker McKee) including a new Panasonic exhaust fan, and a new toilet from Active Plumbing.   

    After a long delay (4 months), the work commenced.  Demo went as expected with some needs for additional floor bracing found, esp. under the tub and new toilet area.  He said this was done.  The electrical was somewhat completed, but the shower light remains off-center, with the explanation that "it would glare off the back wall if it were moved to the center of the shower."  The closet light was not removed, but an additional wire was installed and is "ready for" something.  It is not hooked up to the wall switch, although the contractor indicated that he had "completed this" -- it already controlled the old shower light, so I'm not sure what that meant.  The plumbing seems to have been done pretty much to request (although I have questions now after the second contractor looked at the drains).  The pocket door was installed.  Framing for the new linen closet was roughed in.

    The biggest problem was with the new shower.  The bench was built too small but was re-done.  The shower floor was lined & poured, and the walls were silicone-painted -- all good.  However, the contractor used only 1 of the 2x3s leaving the curb too low for water control.  (I had asked that the threshold be low, but the drawing indicated 2 - 2x3s with appropriate mudding that would leave approx. a 4 x 4 " threshold).   The explanation was "that he wasn't done with the curb yet, he would add height before he was done." 

    Now to the tiling -- first the pattern was altered without consulting me.  I said the pattern was okay at the time.  But as worked progressed, more and more issues became apparent.  For instance,  the tiles were installed with unequal tiles at both ends of all three walls.  The explanation was that the "tiles were slightly smaller than 12" square."  Then there was the issue of the one wall being "extended" out farther than the other -- "to cover the seam in the backer-board".  I asked that this be changed so that the shower door not look awkward once this was installed (one wall 50 inches, the other only 40).  I was told that "you won't see both walls when you walk in the door, so it won't matter."  It did matter!  This required removal of the tiles and bullnose on that one wall, then when they were replaced, they were poorly cut and spaced, leaving wide gaps or no gaps depending on where you looked.  Additionally, the bullnose was so heavily cemented, they stuck out almost a half inch from the wall.

    Let's talk those expensive little trims and bullnose tiles -- the trim row as placed directly on the tile row with NO grout space between the trim and tile rows.  The explanation was that "it was supposed to be that way."  I disagreed and asked that the trim row be removed and centered so that equal grout lines would be at the top and bottom of the trim rows.  He said, "that will be hard to do and he didn't have enough trim to replace it if it broke during removal."  I said, I would stop and purchase more trim that night on the way home so that it could be installed the next day.    Instead, when I came home that evening, the top rows of all three walls had been applied directly on top of the trim rows, now leaving no grout space above or below the trim row and tile rows. 

    As for the bullnose tiles -- he admitted that they weren't exactly level on the one wall, but he could "fix that".  Additionally, it was not difficult to see that the bullnose tiles had very little if any space between them for grouting.  Moreover, there were either large gaps or no space between the tiles and many of the bullnose tiles. 

    Finally, let's talk final bill.  I asked two times, over the phone, that he present me with an itemized statement of the cost of construction as of the termination of his contract.  Instead, he came to the final appointment with a handwritten draft of what he "wasn't going to charge me for because the job had not been completed."  I had done my math prior to this meeting, and his figure was entirely unacceptable since the job was not two-thirds completed, as his price indicated.  We negotiated to some extent, but in all honesty, I just wanted to be done with the whole disaster.  He is paid -- not what the job was worth -- but what it was worth to be done with the experience.
