Review by Jocelyn H. in Johnstown, PA
This company was hired to do a very high end bathroom/laundry room remodel, when they told us they were complete (11 weeks onsite for a 7 week job) the drywall still looks like it has not been done correctly (horribly actually) you can see seems all through the drywall on the walls and ceilings, they did not put any covers on the lights, the cardboard is still on vent with no cover. The cardboard to protect the hardwood floor was still on the floor, the entire bathroom is filthy, they tried fixing drywall after putting in all fixtures and there is paint all over molding, toilets, sink, etc.... The paint is so bad in some areas you can see the white from the primer or drywall through it. The shower is so un-level that the doors do not close right and we cannot use it as the two pieces of back wall are coming apart. They scratched the $600 faucet, after they tried putting in the wrong faucet to begin with, that was put in and it is not even level in the wall and tends to run on its own randomly. They scratched our new Washer and Dryer we just purchased for the bathroom/laundry room. They painted the baseboard heater cover and it looks horrible as well. The pocket door that was installed is so out of level that the door will not even go into the wall correctly. They cracked the outside plaster in the hallway and just tried to put some white paint over it to cover it up instead of fixing it correctly. And where they put in the pocket door instead of painting behind the door molding appropriately they put white caulking in so we can't even get it painted to match as we would have to have all of that removed. We have 6 different colors/shades of border for some reason. They told us during install that the countertop for over the washer and dryer only came in 25" depth so they built an odd looking shelf out of tile to try and adjust for this, it looks hideous at best and we have been told from other contracts that you can get the 39" depth it is just a special order part. They originally purchased the incorrect toilet as we had requested a gray hands free toilet and it was white and was not hands free. The washer and dryer were so out of level under the counter (which is also out of level) that we had to have a company come in and level the washer and dryer as not to ruin brand new equipment. I would strongly recommend doing all your homework before considering hiring this company as they did not follow through with any of the promises of high quality workers and materials.

Review by in Greensburg, PA
We had a good experience with Solar Shield. They listened to our requests, were very responsive to our questions, and delivered what was promised. The team was very professional and very nice to us. They worked through some cold and snow to finish right before Christmas. We now have a beautiful sunroom over our mostly unused deck and we can't wait for warmer weather so we can enjoy the fresh air.

Project: Repair a Sunroom and/or Enclosure
They were always professional in every contact I had with them. The finished Sunroom was what I thought that it would be. The carpenter had too work in bad weather but never complained about it. He just kept on working through it. If I were to remodel anything again I would definitely call them.

Review by in New Kensington, PA
Solar Shield gets many stars from us. Our new kitchen is beautiful. We had a small kitchen and a formal dining room that was no longer necessary and now we have that beautiful kitchen. The contractors were very professional as well as easy to spend some remolding days with. We gave Barry a general idea of what we thought we wanted and he came to our rescue. We also had a back porch off the dining room that they opened up to a connecting sun room. The contractors including Jake Denny, Terry, Ken and some others were wonderful. They were very meticulous about their work therefore we give an A++.

Review by in Irwin, PA
As a first time home buyer, remodels are scary. This company made it easy and pain fee. The level of service and professionalism they demonstrated was amazing. Plus, I never felt pressured into buying something I didn't need. The work was completed on time and perfect. I would recommend this company to everyone, especially first time buyers!

Review by in Altoona, PA
I wanted to add an extra room in my already finished basement. The finished room was exactly what I wanted and on budget. It was also finished within the time frame that was originally given. I would definitely use Solarshield again for any other renovation projects.

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
