    John was hired for exterior repair, painting and staining on April2017. I paid $1000 down to start work May2017. John did not start until June2017 and stated due to weather and other projects. He asked for $500 more, then 3 days later stated he needed $3000 to get materials, then 5 days later said he needed remainder to pay workers putting me on the spot in front of his team and to complete the work. John said he re-injured his shoulder and due to turn in weather and other projects would pick up in spring. I was to be first on his list. A year later, April2018, John stated he needed to order shutters and would finish up in 1 day. Exactly one month later, I reached out to John because I had not heard from him and has not returned my messages left at all methods used previously - business and cell, text, email. I hired John because he was our deceased parish priest���s nephew who came across as not only as trustworthy but also adamant that he stood by his work even if a year or two had passed, he���d fix. John was also listed on Angie���s List which I used for a half a dozen different types of contractors last year for different projects and all fulfilled their contracts except for John. The following are examples of parts of the contract and have been paid for: Pressure wash home - not done House - Replace any rotted wood. John caulked instead. Caulk is failing and/or missing and is visible. Deck - Replace/repair any rotted wood/lattice with pressure treated wood. John short-cutted and either did not replace boards or partially replaced. New hand rail is bowing and coming apart at joints. Caulk and stain are failing and in some areas missing all together. One side of deck lattice was never completed because John said he needed to get longer nails. Also was to align 2nd deck step and secure then adjust lattice. Gutters - scrape, sand, prime, caulk open gaps, seal - paint is peeling off and caulk failing in gaps. Pitch gutters proper - not done properly. Garage door repair - failing Shutters - replace - took old shutters and the boards behind them to match up, but has not returned with either Extend sump pump - not done In doing the work, the following remains at issue: Landscape damaged - grass and plants Outdoor thermometer broken. Only bracket remains. Stain was splashed all over car when team took shelter in my garage during a downpour. Porch rail is detached after worker painted that part of house. I have attached some pictures of John���s work. I need the work finished and hope that Angie���s List can help to get this resolved quickly. One can only pray that John stands by his word and work. If still to no avail, I will do whatever is necessary to get this resolved and avoid others the stress that this has caused to me and my family. No one deserves to be treated this way. No more excuses.

    Went better than I expected ! Terry and crew hit the price I had in mind and the final result was better than I imagined ! and they were very neat and did not get any stain on the house and really made an old deck look like new. Very pleased !

    It went well and we are very pleased with the results. Jay was very professional and did everything that he said he would. We were not happy with the original trim work and after speaking with Jay he came back out and took care of everything until we were completely satisfied. It looks just how we wanted and would happily recommend SpecialScapes.

    Paul is a super nice guy. Returns phone calls/emails/texts promptly (rare for a handyman) and is very reasonably priced. Only downfall could be that he's only available a limited number of days/times, so he's best for repairs that don't have a hard deadline.

    Work began on October 20, 2014. The workers were punctual M-F. Railings were taken down from front porch and then the front porch was done. Workers also began demo on October 20th. After demo was done electrical was completely checked in both the master and addition. Insulation was then put in the addition. Then new sliding door window was installed. Next, the drywall was installed and mud was applied. Ceiling was replaced in addition after insulation was installed. While waiting for mud to dry and be sanded other workers worked on updating fixtures and shower doors in bathroom. Painters arrived after mud was dry and sanded. Floor was then installed in addition. Then woodwork, new bedroom door, closet doors, ceiling fan and outlet and vent covers. The job was completed on November 7, 2014.
    I was very impressed with how neat all the work was done. Each day the workers cleaned up and took all trash out. Each person that came in showed such pride in their work. I would recommend Remodel Me Today to anyone that needs a reliable contractor who is very reasonable in their estimates.

    This was their busy season, but he was able to get out here and get it done.   I was impressed with the fact that they left the place cleaner than they found it.  The deck had a lot of leaves on it, but he swept them away.  I asked him to do the ceiling above the back porch door, and he even moved all my little chachkas and replaced them afterward.  I was impressed also that his assistant used a brush exclusively and didn't spray-paint.   There is no trace of any mess left over.  The lawn, floor, deck, garage, porch, etc. are immaculate -- better than when they arrived.  Our house looks really nice: it got a face-lift.
    Garrity is cheery, fast, accurate, neat, and efficient.  I don't know if he and his assistant actually love working, but they sure acted like they enjoyed working.  The deck, the side door, and the whole front of my house look terrific.
    Highly recommended.

    Paul did an excellent job.  I would hire him again in a minute.  He was easy to get ahold of and always returned my calls promptly.  He was polite and professional.  The quality of his work was terrific.  The post looks great and so does the painting and everything else.  He was easy to work with, flexible and completed the work when he said he would.  With other contractors, I have had to wait a long time for them to get back with me or get me scheduled.  But Paul made an big effort get the job done!!

    It was a good experience.  The work started on time and progressed rapidly.  The Borowskes were terrific to work with.  Don and Dave Borowske and the contractors they brought to our home were very approachable, professional,and courteous.  If we had questions or concerns they responded promptly.  When we encountered a 4 week delay due to problems with a local flooring installer that WE selected,  the Borowskes were patient, supportive and allowed us to resolve the problem without additional pressure.  The project was completed on budget shortly thereafter, and the result is an attractive and quality addition to the house that we are using as a combination of a dining room and a family room.

    I had called another company prior to TAB, and they almost sounded annoyed that I called.  Like I was wasting their time with my small job.   This project was the reason I joined Angie's list in the first place!  I wanted to find someone who wouldn't act like that - and would do quality work.  
    I called Trace, and he was so polite!  He scheduled a time to come and and meet me, and get the details of my project.  He took his time - was not in a rush to get onto the next thing. I was very impressed.  He not only was nice - but also seemed very experienced!  I felt really confident in his abilities.   I had a very specific vision in mind for my front porch railings.  I have a nearly 100 year old house, and I wanted the railings to look authentic.  My exact words to Trace were, "I want them to look like they have always been there!".   He nailed it!!!!!!!  They are beautiful!!  He even took great care no to damage my existing landscaping.  He even carefully trimmed my bushes to accommodate the new railings.    The neighbors all complimented his work.  One even asked for his number so he could do something similar in front of her house!  :-)   He does need to come back out in the spring to paint it - I guess pressure treated wood cannot be painted right away - which is totally acceptable.  I can't wait to see them 100% complete!!   
    We also had TAB power wash and re-stain my back deck.  Trace had no issues at all with a last minute color change request.  He used a very high quality stain.   So many contractors will just use the "cheap stuff" to increase their profits.  Trace made sure quality work was done!  I was told this stain will last 5 years before it needs to be redone!!
    Thank you Trace (and your staining guy) for your hard work!  I WILL be calling you back - hopefully next summer - to do that patio we talked about! *wink*

    I phoned Borowski Builders and Don scheduled a time to meet with me at my home.  As the time of our appointment grew closer that day, he called to let me know he would be a little late.  I thought this was very courteous of him.  Don arrived at my house with samples of decking material so that I could actually match colors of the deck which was great - my original color choice would not have gone well with the color of my house.  Don went over the removal of the window in my eat-in kitchen and went over the different options I had regarding the patio door (I wasn't sure if I wanted to go with a 5ft or a 6ft door). so he measured another door opening in my house to give me an idea of what the sizes.  Don took care of the building permit and all the "city" stuff.  Don kept me informed as to when the building materials and patio door would arrive so I knew when to be home.  When the time came for the work to be started, Don's son and his crew came.  It was a couple day process to dig the posts for the deck, let them set and then start to actually build the deck.  When the son and the crew came back to start building the deck, he somehow drove off my driveway and dug a huge rut in my grass.  He got out of the truck and looked at it, but never offered to fix it.  That was a bit disappointing.  The deck was finished and looked very nice - the land sloped so they had to cut the skirting of the deck just right - and they did.  It looks very nice.  Then it was time for the patio door. Don himself came over to do that job and it was done very well and professionally.  Don cleaned up the kitchen area before he left.  I was so pleased - everything looked so nice!!!!  I then went outside to look at the whole picture - what a difference!  I noticed then that my garden hose and shovel that Don's son and his crew used were all put away still full of mud.  Again, I was disappointed in that and had to clean up after them.  I came back in and looked at the patio screen door and noticed a rip at the top.  I phoned Don and he told me he would take care of getting a new screen door.  Don continued to follow up with the supplier until the new screen door was delivered to me.

    In closing, I just want to say that I am very, very pleased with Borowske Builders and would highly recommend Don if you are looking for a deck and/or patio door.  I went with the Azek decking material option and am just so pleased with it.  It was more expensive but the time and money it will save me from not having to powerwash, stain and re-seal the deck is worth it.
