Review by in Haddon Heights, NJ
Mike was very easy to work with. He showed up everyday and did not leave to start another project. He had some good ideas and is very artistic and flexible. I asked him to make me a potting bench and he made me two to fit in a corner and use up extra space. He hung up my antique cabinets and used the 100 year old wood in my garage to make shelving. He made a work area for my husband using the existing antique work bench. He hung up an organizing system on the wall and now nothing is on the floor including bikes. He made a loft for storage. Our 100 year old garage is beautiful inside and very functional. We each have our own side. Workshop and gardening. Thanks Mike!

The only company/contractor we trust. Multiple projects: My brother and I needed to hire someone to fix my Fathers roof. Michael Elliott assessed the problem and found it started from a lack of support in the basement. He corrected each issue on each floor and made sure my Dads home was repaired properly. Each step of the way, he made sure we knew what needed to be done and conducted himself with superior professionalism. Michael is very thorough and a natural problem solver. I highly recommend Mr. Elliott for any home improvement anyone may need. We could not be more satisfied with the end results. Second project: We needed to have the front steps repaired and the foundation repainted. Again, Mr. Elliott came out with a fair estimate and over-delivered. While repairing and repainting our Dads steps and foundation, Mr. Elliott showed us how the existing windows were just held in with paint, dirt and speckle. Michael gave us a fair price to replace the basement windows (Third project). He completed the project ahead of schedule. Again, we could not be happier with the end results. Mr. Elliott is knowledgeable, honest, dependable, fair, and capable. We will continue to rely on Mr. Elliott for all of our future home improvement needs. He even pointed out areas of the siding that the landscapers were ruining with their weed-whackers. Michael is super helpful and genuinely caring about his customers. The steps, foundation, and basement have never looked or been better. Mr. Elliott and Direct Improvements is a real asset to have when your home needs TLC. Again, we are very happy with the results. Since then, Mr. Elliott has replaced my fathers front and rear doors and water heater, remodeled the living-room, and remodeled one of the bedrooms. We will continue our home-improvement projects with this company/contractor. We cannot accurately define the quality of character and workmanship found with Michael Elliott and Direct Improvements. No one else compares.

Direct Improvements got us out of a real mess with our front porch/steps. We originally hired the boyfriend of a co-worker to rebuild/replace our front steps. He started, then went on vacation. While he was gone, we found more and more things that were unacceptable to the point where we did not want him to finish. I found Direct Improvements on HomeAdvisor when searching for a contractor to come in and fix what was done so far and complete our project. Michael came to our house and looked at what had been done so far and all of the materials that were leftover and the excess "scrap". We explained what had happened and how much it cost us to date. Michael was very understanding of our plight and agreed to take on our project, using as much of the leftover materials as possible. Michael explained what needed to be done to fix the abomination that had been started. He has excellent problem solving abilities. The finished project is beautiful. Even better than what I pictured in my mind. They worked during our first Nor'easter until it was snowing too hard to continue, and then every day thereafter to finish our project before Thanksgiving, as promised. The quality of work is exceptional. We are having him come back to look at and give us a quote on our bathroom remodel and re-tiling around our wood stove. I highly recommend Michael and Direct Improvements for all your home improvement projects.

I would definitely recommend this contractor to anyone I know. The quality of work was outstanding along with a very knowledgeable and fare owner. I didn't feel taken advantage of nor did I feel he was trying to convince me to get more work done than needed. Very honest and friendly with a wide range of skills. I will with out a doubt be calling them back for all my future work! The Best Find!!!

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.
