General Contracting reviews in Martinsburg

    Rick The Handyman Holdridge
    Over the past six months my wife and I had obtained estimates from a few contactors to upgrade our kitchen. We considered everything from new custom cabinets, to tearing down a wall and expanding into an adjacent room. The estimates came in very high, anywhere from $12 - 17 K, and in most cases the contractors were only interested in doing part of what we needed done to improve the whole kitchen. We decided to look at renovating our kitchen without any major construction.

    Then, we found Rick "The Handyman" Holdridge on Angie's List and decided to give him a call. When he arrived for the "estimate", it was truely refreshing to speak with someone with an open mind and willing to consider whatever we wanted, who offered practical and economical alternatives to typically expensive upgrades, and, most importantly, offered straightforward pricing that we could comprehend. Rick tells you right up front that he charges by the hour and settles up at the end of each week. He offered us the option of either purchasing the supplies and equipment ourselves, or he would purchase it for us and provide the receipt for reimbursement. With all the purchases he made for us at Lowes, he passed along the 5% discount he received. Imagine that. No mark up, and he passed along his discount to us!

    Rick was able to start the project within about a week of when he said he would. He showed up on the job and went right to it. He regularly asked us how we thought things were going, and was always open to our ideas. If we thought something needed more attention he would say, "no problem", and fix it with a smile. He straightened up the job area at the end of each day and did his best to avoid disrupting our life and living space.

    All said and done, Rick provided us with an excellent product for a reasonable price. He is experienced, professional and forthright. We are extremely happy with his work.

    I have expressed to him my intent to call on him again in the future. My only concern is whether he will be available to us, as I have no doubts that the demand for his services will increase as his reputation gets around.

    Steve Harris Contracting LLC
    Let me start by saying that i called 10 different contractors, and Steve was the first to call back (some didn't even call back, others 2 weeks later) first to show up for the estimate, and didn't try to talk me into more than was necessary. As a matter of fact, I was the one who kept showing him, one more thing !
    Our problems started with a small piece of grout, about 2 inches in length. It fell out from between two tiles @ the bottom of our stand up shower. This allowed water to be wicked behind the tile, causing water damage on the sheetrock behind the tile. For what ever reason, dura rock and or green board, were not used in a small portion of the shower surround. The bathroom had too have all the tile in the stand up shower removed and replaced, as well as having the tub deck shored up for lack of support.
    The wet sheet rock became a chalky wet mess, which dripped water onto our kitchen ceiling, causing discoloration and the tape on the ceiling to start to peel. We determined that the whole ceiling would need to be addressed since there were more than 2 dozen nail "pops" and well as several spots where tape was cracked and peeling. My kitchen ceiling runs into my living room as well as the foyer, so all of that would have to painted when the repair was done. I decided to have the hallways as well as common areas repainted in addition to the ceiling and master bath.
    While I had Steve looking @ everything, I had him check our storm door which we got to stop water from coming in when it rained. Our whole front door jamb is off, allowing almost a quarter to one half inch of light in on the right side, so every time it rained, it rained inside my front door. The problem was the when another company installed the storm door, they just followed the existing door jamb, giving us a second door that allowed both light and water to come into the house! While he was looking @ the storm door, he noticed that the wood trim above the door had peeling paint and was starting to rot. So we decided to repair, calk and repaint that as well as the ever-growing list of other things that needed to be done!
    Steve brought in Randy Travis from Travis tile to do the tile work in the bathroom. He is an artist! It looks so good. In addition to the shower surround, he and his partner, I didn't get her name, dug out the old grout in my tub surround which was crumbling and re-grouted the tub surround as well.
    Steve and his assistant Robbie, did all the patch work on the tape and dug out all the old mud from the nail pops and re-muded all of it! Very time consuming, because you had to keep waiting for the mud to dry between each coat. Then came the fun part, sanding it all! They took turns, as one man sanded and the other held a shop vac up next to the sanding blocks to minimize the mess. I have 2 kids, one is only 9 months old, so this was GREATLY appreciated!! I don't have time for extra clean -up!
    The brought in Tim from Dorsey's painting and he and his partner, I can't remember his name, did a fabulous job! They painted all the ceilings as well as the master bath ceilings, the master bath walls and trim, the front door wood trim as well as re-doing my bad job on the side lights and even spray painting the star above my front door!
    Since Steve was doing so much around the house, I asked him if he wouldn't mind re-hanging a shutter that blew off my house a while ago, it had been sitting in the garage for about 2 years, which they did, looks great! And while we were in the garage, I asked about paint that was peeling around the garage doors and was informed it was starting to rot, they fixed that as well!
    It took just under 3 weeks from first call for estimate to completion of work. I would love to use Steve again, though next time for something more fun, like finishing the basement or extending the patio....or maybe a pergola over the extended patio....hmmmmmm.......
