Godlove was a pleasure to work with from start to finish. He is clear, reliable and very professional and the work he and his crews did made us love our house so much more. In addition to putting in gorgeous new wood flooring throughout our house, he also rebuilt our sloping and rotting front porch, and revamped our worn out back screen porch. Now we love being in all these spaces.

Godlove did an excellent job on my project. It took me forever to find someone to do the job I wanted. I kept searching under fireplace contractors, which didn't get me anywhere. I called Home Advisor and told them what I was looking for, and they were able to connect me to the right contractor (general contractor). I wanted my newly purchased linear electric fireplace recessed into a floor to ceiling surround, with a flat screen TV mounted on top. He framed and built the surround and also tiled it just like I wanted; 12x24 tiles horizontal around the fireplace, and vertical on top. It turned out beautiful; very sleek and modern!! It looks better than the ones you find in the model homes! When people walk into my living room they gasp...ha! The price was reasonable as well. I'll be calling him back for more projects soon. :-) Thank you!!

We hired Desire for a whole home renovation which included basement, kitchen, bathrooms and whole house painting. The work was very good quality and the prices were fair and reasonable.
Response by Desire Contracting: It was great working with you. Thanks for the opportunity and hope to work with you again in the near future.

Godlove Mancho and the Desire Contractors remodeled a home I purchased. He was familiar with the Renovation Loan process and was instrumental from beginning to the end. The Team did an excellent job in doing the carpet, painting, replacing all of the wood on the deck, roof repair, bathroom remodeling, appliance installation and more. They came in below competitors prices as well. Additionally, the Team worked on my townhome that we were renting. They did Mold Remediation, ceiling repair and replacing of all of the carpet. Both homes are absolutely gorgeous. I would use Desire again and again and again! Thanks Godlove!

Godlove was very efficient, had great, professional, hardworking teams, and completed our projects quickly. New roof, skylight, cellar safety sump pump backup installation, replacement frames around rotted windows, and installation of garage door opener. You CANNOT go wrong, if you hire Desire Contracting!!

I was impressed with the General Contractor for Desire Contracting he was enthusiastic and displayed great communication skills and had a professional demeanor about getting the job done, he provided a free consultation for a client who was purchasing a home, the client did not purchase the home but I will use this company in the future. Thank You

I hired Desire Contracting to renovate my kitchen, make a door from my kitchen into the Garage so that I would have access to the garage from inside the house, and to make the garage into a heated/airconditioned room. They were on time each day, worked diligently each day, cleaned up at the completion of each day, stayed within the budget they agreed to, and completed the job before the projected finish date. Mr. Mancho was curteous and very professional. Even when I added on other small items as the major renovation progressed. I was soo impressed with his reasonable pricing and excellent work that I recommended him for some work at my mom's house as well --and she too is very please with is business presence and professionalism. I am very pleased with his company's work and will continue to call upon Desire Contracting for my personal.and Real Estate clientele renovation projects. I have recommended Desire Contracting and will continue to HIGHLY recommend Desire Contracting/ Mr. Godlove Mancho for reasonably priced, well-done, renovation projects. Very Pleased --Customer

Seal of Approval

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.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.

NOTE: Member service professional information confirmed as described above may change or expire over time; while HomeAdvisor attempts to maintain accurate and up-to-date information, and confirms changes when notified, we cannot guarantee that profile and screening information is accurate.
