Project: Hire a Handyman
Perry and his team are exceptional contractors. They give an accurate estimate (timing & price) for the job. They keep you informed on the work being done. Once they start a job, they work until it is completed. It is a pleasure to do business with such a friendly, knowledgeable contractor. Will hire again.

Review by in Saugus, MA
The work had to be redone which took longer than I expected. However they did return and completed the revision. I would have given the 5**** if they had returned sooner to take care of my issue. Al extremely pleasant to deal with.

I hired Perry previously to replace a pane of glass, he was suppose to tell me when he would be by. But he showed up unannounced to do the job. I told him please don't come to my house without a scheduled time. I wasn't even home at the time to deal with the situation instead my poor mother in-law was caught completely off guard with my infant son. Prior to fixing the glass I told him I had a couple of additional jobs that I was interested in receiving some quotes for. So after the glass job he showed up multiple times with additional people unannounced. A year later I posted another job for quote on HomeAdvisor, based off of my previous experiences I was not interested in receiving quotes from Perry. However today I come home to Perry and his partner Al were in my yard. I never contacted them but they felt it was justified to come to my house without an appointment or previous contact with me. When I told them I didn't have an appointment with them nor reached out to them. They told me they thought it was acceptable because the job was posted on HomeAdvisor. Normally if someone doesn't reach out to you about a job, that means they are not interested in working with your company. I don't understand why Perry feels that is acceptable to show up at my house whenever he feels like it. You don't come to someone's house without a mutually agreed to appointment.
Response by Affordable Home Construction, LLC: When I receive an offer from Home advisor I call the home and email the home. If I do not get a response in a few days I go to the home knowing everyone is busy. When I show up the people are glad I showed and show me what they would like. About a year ago I installed a piece of glass in a antique window for Jennifer. I told her I was coming that day but did not know the exact time. Her mother in law was home when i arrived. I told her I was replacing the glass. Her mother in law and I was joking with each other the time i was there? Jennifer asked me about several other outside jobs for a quote. I went back several other times to look over the outside work to be able to give her a quote. No one needed to be home for this. I just received a request about her pool a few days ago. I was driving buy her home and saw a car in the driveway so I stopped in to see if I could see the job. Her husband was home and was very delighted to see me and we all went to the pool. While we were all at the pool with her husband Jennifer came home. She was extremely rude! and told us to leave. If Jennifer did not want us to go to her home she should of informed me on my email and phone call to her about the pool a few days ago. When we sent her several quotes last year she never responded she was not interested in doing business with me. If she had done this I would of not bothered her again. Her husband is always very nice when we go there but Jennifer is always just the complete opposite! Come to find out Jennifer wants the pool demolished and he wants to fix it. If Jennifer took the time to email, text or call me that would of ended it last year.

Contractor was very prompt with communication, coming out to give an estimate, and then sticking to their delivery schedule. Once repaired, they cleaned up everything and left the site as it had been with no trash or disruption. They then followed up promptly when I asked them to do a bit more and even offered advice about how to make the appearance even better.

Hired them to level basement floor, job came out unlabeled and I have cracks all over the floor. I called and they said they would come out. They did not come out last Saturday they said Tuesday, I wasted my whole day waiting they didn’t show. I have called and emailed they won’t get back to me. Do not hire them. If you have an issue they won’t take care of it!
Response by Affordable Home Construction, LLC: When I first saw this review I thought it was for another contractor. A few weeks after the inside floor was leveled, Steven called me on Thursday about a problem with the floor. I told him we would come by Saturday and see what had to be done. The next day Friday I called Steven back and told him instead of us coming Saturday and just looking at the floor we could come the following Tuesday afternoon and repair the floor. Steven agreed that Tuesday would be best and it would be a waste of time going Saturday. We packed the truck Tuesday to do a small job in the morning and then went to Stevens's home at 3:00 when he got home. I received a text from Steven about 4:30 Tuesday wondering why Al was not there. I tried to contact Al for hours and finally Al called me back (his phone was off). Around 2:00 Al received a call his wife was rushed to the hospital with severe breathing problems. After hours in the emergency room thinking his wife was going to die, Al composed himself and texted Steven and me to let us know what happened. Steven then texted Al right back saying he was sorry about his wife but Al should have called him sooner and he and his wife were very upset he did not show and inconvenienced. How compassionate and rude. As you can see by all of our reviews we take great pride in our work and pleasing our customers.

Perry and his team were very professional and attentive during the entire project! Perry kept us apprised of progress and precautions necessary during all phases of the work. He even fixed a railing on a nearby set of stairs - something not within the initial scope of work. Perry and his team only use the highest-quality materials and take their time to ensure the job is done right! Affordable Home Construction garners my strongest possible recommendation!

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  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.
