Hire this guy. He knows what he is doing. I never liked the repair the previous owner did 20 years ago, so I called Allan for help. He sistered 6 joists and fully replaced another 8 joists, and replaced the patio door that was getting harder and harder to open. Now the floor is solid, the door opens and closes perfectly, and everything is better than it was. Thank you!

Damage due to overflowing gutter was extensive. Removal of cedar siding revealed rotting 2x4's, throughout entire wall, plus a small portion of roof, two floor joists, one roof 2x10, and portions of the roof and floor of the Florida room. Allen and his crew of 3 worked M-F of one week and 2.5 days of following week to remove all rotted wood (including drywall) and rebuild the walls, and appropriat...

I was impressed from the first phone call!! Mr Rasnake was friendly and offered to come out for my free consultation the day after my initial contact. He then made my appointment, after giving me a reasonable quote, the following day. He is very professional, kind, knowledgeable, and friendly. I appreciate all he did. He was very thorough and explained if we had any questions. You can tell he take...

It went OK. He brought 3 guys to do the 2 small jobs and charged me $800 plus materials. I had to sand and paint the drywall patch myself because they were only here for 6 hours.

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
I had a spot in the ceiling that needed to be replaced with a 18 inch by 12 inch patch and wanted to change a door frame to a casing instead of the typical door jamb.

We were in the midst of a horrible dispute with ORKIN who was responsible for seeing that the termites did not damage our house so we did not get to spend much time with Mr. Rasnake and I cannot remember so much about the relationship we had with him.  I just remember being very impressed with the manner in which he was able to replace sills.

Replaced the sills under our house that had been damaged by termites.

Everything went smoothly. Allen showed up on time for both the initial inspection and the actual work day. Everything was constructed well and according to plan. I'll use him next time I need a handyman. One note: he didn't provide a hard price proposal up front, rather he gave an estimate, and then informed me about the final price after the work was completed. The final price was marginally high...

I requested bids from eight contractors (most on Angies List.)  Two never responded.  Of all the bidders, Allen was the most knowledgeable and thorough.  He actually returned twice for additional measurements and analysis.  He also contacted the county about what remedies were allowed as the original joists were engineered items (plywood and 2x3s formed to an I-Beam.)  The strongest and most econo...
