Ken was very friendly and was on time when he came out to my home to install 3 storm doors for us. My only issue was after we obtained our quote, and having explained that we needed to possibly have one of the door frames widened due to the new door was a little bit wider and taller the the door that was removed. He measured the door frame and told us that it would only need to be widened about 1/2 in. After we hired him and once he had completed one door and was starting the 2nd door, we were told that he miss measured and the frame would need to be widened more than he initially said and that there would be more labor cost then what we were initially quoted due to this error. He suggested using a smaller storm door which would have narrowed the door by 2 in. which we didn't want. Because of this error we had to pay him an additional $450 above what he had initially quoted us. I feel that minimally he should have offered to only charge us 1/2 of the labor or not charged us at all for the extra work due to the error was his. Had I known the cost of hiring Ken would uld be so high, I probably wouldn't have went with him. We had another contractor quote us about $200 less and was also going to install a small area of vinyl siding that we needed to have done. Ken said that he didn't do vinyl siding work but we went with Ken due to his initial quote was aver $200 less than his competition was quoting us. He did great work but I feel that he should have handled the situation differently where the error was his. I might try him again for other projects around our home, but with the understanding that unless we add additional work that was not discussed during the estimate, that the work would be completed without additional charges and any errors on his part wouldn't cost us more.

Response from Company:

Jason, Thank you for the review! The door frame in question was extremely out of square. The top, middle and bottom did not measure the same. When this issue was found, I quickly communicated the issues and gave options to remedy the issue at hand. You authorized the change order and I proceeded with work. The task took longer than expected, cutting through all the nails and screws and having to fix the door frame. I had about 2 hours extra that I did not bill you for as a courtesy. I want all my customers to be happy and feel comfortable with the prices charged. Thank you for the feedback.

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
