We had sheetrock repair and interior painting. Mr Burns takes a lot if pride in his work and it shows. Always on time every time. So very pleased with the end results. We are already talking future projects. Highly recommend.

They came to give me my estimate one day and was there the very next day and did the work. Very Satisfied.

We hired Sam and his nephew to redo a screened-in porch. When a friend stopped by and noticed some questionable work being done, we asked Sam to wait on doing it anymore until we were able to ask him in person about these things. We know nothing about construction and have been burned in the past by awful contractors and just wanted to be sure things were as they should be. This is the point where things went south. Sam became pretty defensive and seemed like he just wanted to be done with us. The project took far longer than estimated (yes I realize it was an estimate ), and any time something was brought into question he was visibly annoyed. At one point he asked me to hang fans...thought I hired him? At one point a large amount of concrete was poured into my driveway without any thought of asking. His response was it s a gravel driveway and it ll bust-up and you would not notice it ...still there. I will pass over the unbelievable amount of cigarette butts that my children walked over and picked up all over my yard. Once completed we noticed mold forming under the overhang of the roof. When called Sam said oh yeah I will be there next week a month later he gave the same response. A week after that it was the same response and the same after that. I finally got a roofer on top of the roof of the porch and he could not believe what he saw. After having the roofer fix what needed to be fixed and resealed I still have heard no word from Sam and it is probably for the best. At the end of the day, the majority of the project was done and looks good. However after all the time, effort and having to have someone else come behind him to fix the problems I would not recommend.

Response from Company:

You had someone come over, I went and met them at your house at 7 o clock in the afternoon, your friend had no construction experience and has no credentials too, so I listened to the points of interest, and I assured you that those points of interest were to be done, the job was not finished at the time. Cigarette butts on the job: I told you, do not worry about that, when we are finished, we will pick up every giblet left on your property, we took off all trash and we did numerous things for you for free. You had a one-year warranty, I still came out to your house and looked at the edge of the roof where you said was holding water.

Showed up on time. Worked a full day. Came back the next day and finished up. I have more work in the future for them.

5.0 Jeri S. Ocean Springs, MS

Mr. Sam Burns was a joy to work with.  I know nothing about home repair/maintenance and Mr. Burns was patient as can be, explaining  the steps and reasoning behind individual tasks.   When our project to paint the interior of the home, spruce up the kitchen with new counter tops and back splash and update a bathroom mushroomed into some must do home repairs (roof repair/replacement, ceiling and carpentry repair)  He presented me with various options to consider to address each "surprise" encountered.  He was mindful of costs and our bottom line thru the entire project.  Once a plan was agreed on,  the work went very smoothly.   His crew was professional, skilled, worked steady thru the day and they were exceedingly polite.   You will be in good hands if you select Mr. Burns 

Response from Company:

Thank you Miss squire it was a pleasure working for you and look forward to doing your next project

5.0 Blair E. Gautier, MS

Sam did a wonderful job repairing the columns on my front porch and then building a screen porch onto the side. He does beautiful and quality work with good attention to detail. Definitely recommend.

Response from Company:

Thank you, Miss Blair. Look forward to doing the next job.

5.0 Jeffrey M. Diberville, MS

  1. Verify Trade License
