    Inch by Inch Construction, Inc.
    Great team of professional and engaging individuals for the entire project. They would answer our questions, taught us a few things and made sure that we were getting what we needed for the renovations. They made us feel like we have a bunch of helpful and trustworthy new friends. We're very pleased with the result and the quality of their products and workmanship.

    Fogle Improvements
    Went very well. He was booked for some time before he scheduled me but he showed up on time and started on the job. It took a day longer than planned because of the weather. He sanded the shed, washed the surfaces, repaired a board and then painted the shed. He removed 2 porch railings on the house that had rot, replaced them and primed and painted them.

    Val Jermacans Master Carpenter
    Val's work is definitely that of a master carpenter.  His latest work was one of 3 projects that he has completed at our home.  He has very good insight and planning as to how a job should be completed at the highest level of quality.  Without question, we will be having Val complete future work at our home and would not hesitate to recommend him to others.

    Fogle Improvements
    This was a frustrating experience I hope doesn't happen to anyone in the future who hires Dave Fogle from Fogle Home Improvements.  In November of 2014, Mr. Fogle came to our house to give an estimate of the wood restoration job on our two single-bay garage doors as well as the side entry door to the garage.  His verbal quote was that the job will cost about $150-$200 at the most for the paint and materials.  We decided that we'd do the job in the spring since the weather was getting too cold to paint the trim when he was finished.
    Mr. Fogle contacted us in the spring and we decided on the work to be done on June 9.  Mr. Fogle and his sixteen year old "helper" came on that day and completed the job in five hours (8:30-1:30).  It would have taken longer if I had not had a fresh tube of caulking for him to use since he didn't bring his own for the side door.  
    Upon completion, Mr. Fogle said the final cost would be an additional $300 due to the rise in materials cost.  I asked for the itemized bill, but he said that he'd had to email it to me.  He said I should just text him my email address (not sure why, since it was on the Angie's List website).  I texted my email to him at 2:46pm that day, but didn't hear anything from him.  Several emails later, we finally received an itemized bill from him.  This is what he sent:
    The materials are as follows 8 ten foot brick molding at $15.25 each plus tax, total cost of $129.32. The next item is 3 Beige quad caulk at $5.98 each plus tax, total cost of $19.94. There was also sheet metal flashing that was used but I did not bill you for that. The total hours is for two men because there were two people at your house that day. If you feel there is an issue please let me know so that i might try to make things right for you. I know that you mentioned that the wood at the bottom of the door was not replaced. If you feel as though it is affecting the function of the door I would be happy to do that for you at no cost.
    Based on Mr. Fogle's material costs, we should have just paid an additial $149.26 for the materials and one more additional hour of labor.  He billed us double the labor costs because of "two people" being at the house to do the work.  His billable hours in an earlier email were for ten hours of labor. We've NEVER had a contractor bill us double for labor if he had a helper with him! Besides this double the labor charge, his sixteen year old helper was learning on the job!  
    Overall, the trim looks fine from afar until you see it up close.  We have a few nail holes that weren't spackled which are now rusting.  There are two protruding nails that were shot through the trim into nothing and stick out.  The side door still has rotten wood trim that was merely covered in PVC.  If you read Mr. Fogle's response carefully, you'll see that he will replace this wood trim "if it is affecting the function of the door".  What happened to the advertised wood rot restoration?  Is it only restored if it affects the function of the door?
    We hope no one falls victim to Mr. Fogle's questionable business practices like we did.  If you do hire him, make sure you receive a written quote beforehand.

    Ville Painters, Inc.
    Ville painted our house prior to our moving in. This was the first time we had ever hired professional painters, and we were impressed. We had two painters for the majority of the time. Mike in particular, did a truly amazing job and takes painting to a new level - he treats painting like it's an art form. In general, they worked hard, showed up on time, respected our property, and cleaned up on a daily basis. They also coordinated some work in the basement with their carpenter (took out shelving, matched baseboards etc...).   While the estimate we received was on the low side, they did not upcharge us in the end. Overall, we were extremely satisfied with their work and recommend them based on the high quality of their work.

    Fogle Improvements
    Dave managed to give my house a face lift with skill and determination, staying within his price quote. He shows up on time and returns messages promptly. I've already engaged him for another assignment on the interior.

    Hollander Builders Remodeling & Design LLC
    I had my house reassessed, and my house value went up by $75,000 as a result of the work that he did. Not only is he a great guy who's very detail oriented, but he's also charming and very flexible. When I changed my mind, it didn't bother him. He was always available, and involved me in every decision. I plan on using him in the future to remodel our main bathroom! He's also full of integrity -- looking for ways to save me money. He's just a really good guy.

    Decks Etc Power Washing
    I can't remember if it was Jim or Drew who came out to provide me with the initial estimate, but either way, by the end of the job, I had spoken with both and they were both very courteous and friendly.  The estimate for the entire job (minus some needed repairs) was reasonable.  When they arrived, they got to work and the job ended up being significantly more difficult to remove the previous deck stain.  I was called and they let me know that the job would take longer, maybe an additional day or 2, and expected to be told of additional charges due to the extra time, but they told me that the cost would not change.  I was very impressed by that jesture.  In the end, there were a few extra costs associated with the job, but they were for repair work which wasn't part of the original estimate.  They also showed me the areas that were in need of repair.  WIth the old staining, the wood-rot wasn't noticeable, but after the stain was removed, the damage was evident and needed repair or the deck would not have been safe.  The cost of the repairs was very reasonable as well.  All in all, I have no complaints about this company.  They did a great job and the deck looks fantastic.
    I will definitely use them again when it is time to re-stain the deck.

    DALE H MARTIN
    Dale really did a phenomenal job. He typically worked by himself but one day his brother in law was helping. Dale traveled two hours to do the work on my second home; he would come up about 1 day a week and work all day long. He finished the projects in two weeks of actual work time. We really worked with one another’s schedules. If you have any carpentry repairs needed you should call Dale.
