It went great! I've used him previously. He repaired it immediately and made it look as good as new. If I could give him an A+, I would! I would highly recommend him to others.

Called Big Dave’s for an estimate on some minor odds & ends projects to finish so I could put my house up for sale. I had concerns calling someone I had never heard of to begin with, but decided to try Angie’s List. Big Dave came out on the date/time scheduled, however, he took no notes as we walked around my house and I showed him the miscellaneous items that needed to be finished. Upon completin...

I am sorry to hear that you feel the way you do. However, it is very unfair to grade pricing when none was provided, to grade punctuality and responsiveness at a "D" when I arrived on time as agreed to our one and only meeting and replied within 30 minutes to your one and only email, to claim work was completed when no work was agreed to, and to grade other areas based on assumptions you may have ...

I called Dave and asked him to come help us get the door that came off the hinges back on. It was assembled poorly by the person that originally put it on before we lived there, making it more difficult to get it done ourselves. Dave wasn't available last minute, but he did walk my husband through how to get it done, and we ultimately did it ourselves. He had amazing customer service, knowledge an...

Big Dave was a pleasure to work with. In the middle of a bath and kitchen remodel my husband sustained a severe back injury. Big Dave and his guys stepped in to complete the work. They didn't do anything we did not ask for, gave good estimates when we asked for extra things not included in our original contract and made our experience a great one. They created a new wall in the kitchen to hide the...

They did a fantastic job. There wasn't a speck of dirt or anything. They put in quite a few bars, and you couldn't tell anyone had been there!

Dave came out and looked at the work that needed to be done. He didn't measure but said he would send a "preliminary estimate" and then if I was okay with it would measure at that time. I never heard a word from him. No estimate, no returned call. Ridiculous-

Imagine my surprise when I found your review today. We did meet and I declined to move forward with your project and notified you of our decision. Here are the details. I researched our records and found we did meet at your home on Monday evening, Aug 14 to discuss various window and exterior repairs and replacements. Because we were in late summer, I mentioned that we may not be able to work in y...

Called "Big Dave" on a Monday morning after running into an issue trying to DIY repair my bathroom sink the prior evening. Dave was unable to come out for an estimate/evaluation until the following day, thats fine, we have a second bathroom. I explained over the phone that my wife would be home when he came by on Tuesday AM. He showed up around the time he described which was "whenever I get done ...

I am sorry we were not able to meet your schedule. However, when we first spoke on the phone, I asked if this was an emergency repair, as we do not offer 24/7/365 emergency services. You indicated that it was not an emergency, as you had another bathroom to use in the interim. As you stated, I agreed to stop by after a previously scheduled meeting on the next day, which I did honor. I requested a ...

Excellent. Called Dave and he was friendly and professional and sent one of his crew over to handle it. Because I was out of town, he sent pictures of the finished work so I was comfortable it was done and done well.
