    Cesar & the Painters
    Very professional, very prompt and efficient. We had our original floor people say they could not even start the job and Cesar and his crew came to save us. I could not be more thankful for the quality of work and the amount of time spent in our home. You can truly tell these guys take pride in all the work they do wether big or small. Cesar is very informative about every step of the way. Our floors needed work and we knew this but we literally did not know how big of an issue it was until they pulled up the carpet. Cesar was able to take care of all the repairs that were unexpected and able to finish a month early. Cesar and crew book up fast, so if you need a repair call now!

    Olympia Construction Inc
    From beginning to end, this was a pleasant experience. Patrick was courteous, responsive, patient and not pushy. He went over various options with me and potential risks of each option. I really appreciated this approach ��� I am a consumer who likes to know their alternatives as there is rarely one solution to a challenge. Although with the big deal, Olympia ended up being the most economical choice, I did research online and the better business bureau and found them to a very reputable organization as well (win-win). FYI ��� without the Big Deal, they were sill competitive with other bids ��� not the lowest but within competitive range and definitely not close to the highest bid I had received.
    Day of the replacement (within the expected time frame ��� yet another win), the team was courteous and respectful. They left the work-site cleaner then what they found it (I noticed they were kind enough to clean the debris from the gutters even though it was not a service I requested). They even remembered to put back on the faucet protectors after using the water even though I could see how such a small detail would be overlooked. I should point out that I am a gardener and have extensive landscaping - - no broken trees, bushes or plants --which impressed me greatly as I usually bust at least one thing when I string xmas lights.
    Overall, I have no qualms recommending Olympia Construction; I will definitely consider them for other jobs I may have in the future based on the is experience with Patrick and team.

    Christopher & Company
    Where do I begin?  Jacob was at my door within the timeframe given, and was ready for action. His planning and execution were logical and assured the job would be done. The little extras were great, that he was able to fit them in within the day. His customer relations were fantastic, really restoring my faith, seeing someone else who's there to serve and get the job done. Oh, he went that extra mile to add support and extend the life of my roof!!  Smart guy. Shall I mention, well yes I will, Jacob gave great advise and found fixes. I can tell he has experience and intelligence!! Clone this man!! :)
    Will I hire again? Yes!
    Cost was less than anticipated for the level and quality of work. 
    Experience was great.
    My only regret? Not knowing about this team before I finished my kitchen remodel. 
    For those hiring, connect with them, they do follow up as soon as they can, but with busy summer months we have to respect the volume of work.
    My cost for work was the offer, extra time spent, and materials.  Good value.

    Craftsman Custom MD Contractors INC.

    Elias was always cheerful, helpful, and kind and was an absolute pleasure to have in our house.  If I could afford it, he'd be here for a year working on handyman projects.  Heck, I'd adopt him!

    After I did some painting a couple of areas showed up that needed caulking.  I emailed Elias and he was out here the next business morning and did the caulking and even touched up some painting that I'd done.  No charge!  He's amazing!

    Cooper Services Construction
    The project went well.  I had bought a special deal through Angie's List to get them to come out for several hours.  The tough part was because it was a special deal they don't come out ahead of time to get a feel for the project like they would if they were bidding on it.  So, it was difficult to explain via email and phone how our roof was sagging and why.  It wasn't until they got here that they really understood my issue.  Jarrod and his brother hopped up in the attic with me and the 3 of us came up with a plan.  His brother (I really cannot remember his name...this happened almost a year ago and I'm just now getting around to writing a review) was more of the helper.  He and I went to the lumber store and got the materials we needed.  Got back to the house and they knocked it out of the park.  They definitely had to use some creativity to solve the problem.  We all thought that they would go past the allotted time.  Not only did they brace the roof...they went on to add more support to the other part of the roof too all within the time that I had paid for. They were on time and very nice.  They only reason I say I would not use them again is because they live in Gig Harbor and they rightfully charge miles outside of their service area.  I knew this when I bought the deal so this is not a knock against them.  In the future though, I would try to find someone closer to home.  I would certainly recommend them though.

    Cathy did an amazing job. She was prompt, pushed to get things done on time, and her craftsmanship on the mantle was outstanding. She totally transformed our living room. We added on some extra painting work, and she graciously squeezed it in her schedule. I would recommend Cathy for any job. She does fantastic work.

    It went very well. Ken arrived our rental house on time for a walk through. He was very helpful, suggesting things that we could do ourselves, should we choose, explaining how he'd do it. He drew up an estimate and emailed it to us. Work was scheduled to begin first of next week. We had a slight delay, due to an early addition to the Kand H Developments family. Knowing we had a time constraint Ken came out with his crew on Thursday of that week and knocked everything out in one day.

    Rainier Painting Co
    AN EXCELLENT EXPERIENCE - We simply could not have imagined things going this smoothly. Kelly was prompt to respond to our initial call, not to mention punctual and professional when coming out for an estimate. Instead of a quick glance at the house and randomly throwing a price out to see what I would say, Kelly carefully measured the property and took close inspection of what the work would actually entail. His estimate was the absolutely best we received during our search. Kelly and crew started power washing the house the next day and the process quickly progressed - including the discovery of some fairly deep wood rot along the back of our home. Kelly was able to remove the rotten wood and replace everything at a very reasonable price for labor. Because of his many talents, our exterior paint project easily skipped over what might have quickly derailed us completely. (with excellent quality carpentry) We thought we would choose a dark slate blue for our base color. While respectful of our choice, Kelly wasn't afraid to offer some advice when I finally asked his opinion. He gave us a quick lesson in how to make your home look bigger and as a result we found a new base and trim color. The end result is amazing - even our neighbors love it! Many thanks to Kelly and his crew for their hard work. The paint job is flawless we never would have thought it could be done so fast! Sincerely Impressed, Gary Richardson & Jon-Michael Weiss
