Expensive, and does not like to give anything but oral guesstimate. I just needed simple handrail on 3 mobile homestead and got a huge wooden railing put up instead. The guy who built it was good but railing dwarfs my steps. Cost almost $900 for two rails. Found in FL that the leads from Angie and others are super expensive and are businesses not handymen which is most people need.

Response from Company:

They are a family operation . They take care and pride in their work. They came out in person to meet me twice and explained what would be done thoroughly. Very fair price. Workmanship was awesome. I hope to have them remodel my bathroom one day.

Absolutely the worst company to hire to do any work. What was supposed to be a 2 to 3 month job went to 7 months. Once they have most of your money you will wait months before you see them again. Had to threaten to take them to court for them to respond. Owner Bret Jones doesnâ t have a problem contacting you when money is due, but if you call or text when you want them to come back to finish he never replies. Was quoted a price of between $18,000 and $22,000 to do the kitchen remodel depending on what they find behind the wall which had to be removed. There were no issues or load bearing found but still wanted to charge the $22,000. I asked why and he responded angrily and F bombed me on a phone call and how dare I question why he was charging me the most of the quote. In the end in order for us to have a kitchen again I had to do most of his work (plumbing, painting, installation of appliances and tile work) said that I still had to pay the balance of $700 because the job was done. I did not pay because of the work that wasnâ t done by him. What contractor wants most of the money up front before the work is completed. You live and learn. Do yourself a favor and Donâ t hire them!

Response from Company:

We full-filled our contractual obligations to this homeowner, but he felt that we owed him more than what we were contracted for. Therefore; he wrote this review and his accusations are untrue.

Like others here, this scam contractor stole my $4,500 and provided about $150 worth of actual work, ie; sent a guy to paint some red paint on part of my deck to temporarily ?fix? my leak, which did nothing. I have no contract, no plans, sketches, permits, documents; the leak, roof and drywall repairs they agreed to do immediately were never performed, they simply took my money and ran and are now saying they aren?t a ?handyman? company. I have witnesses and have paid others to do the work I paid them to do. They are thieves and liars, and refused to respond for months, then when they do, Bret Jones is a bully and tries to threaten and scare people so he can keep their money. DO NOT HIRE THESE CROOKS!!!!!! Their reputation around the area rings true. I?ll be getting my money back and will do my best to make sure this doesn't happen to someone else. Angi needs to stop recommending this company.

Response from Company:

We were contracted to design and build an addition. We had numerous meetings with the city and brought in a plansman who started working on this project. In the meantime, the homeowner was having issues with a roof leak and we sent people to try and find the leak and to do a quick patch as they wanted to rent out their house for Air BnB. We spent time and material to attempt to complete this, and after we initially sent workers, the homeowner discovered another leak at another area of the house, but were unsuccessful in the limited amount of time prior to hurricane Ian to locate and fix the leaks. The homeowner then asked to put the remodel on hold, keep any money we used for the repairs and hold the remainder for the future addition when they were ready to start again. We didn't hear from this homeowner for several months until we received a nasty message saying we stole her money. She then filed a dispute on her credit card and toke all the money back including anything owed to us for the work we completed. Her attempt to hurt our company is unwarranted,, unfair, unkind, and false.

Home Owners Beware!!! I hired Island Dream Homes to remove water damaged drywall after my house was flooded by Hurricane Ian. I provided a $7,500 deposit, and I signed an agreement. I decided not to use his services for the repair of my house for various reasons, including my background and reference check. I sent a text notifying the Operation Manager that I will not be using there services, and I requested my deposit be returned minus the services provided. I received a very nasty and unprofessional reply from the owner Bret Jones which I did not expect. His reply confirmed my reference check. Mr. Jones stated they cut checks of Friday and he was going to deduct 5 hours for administrative services, 20% is allocated in the agreement. It has been well over a week and I have not received my deposit. I have filed a complaint with Office of the Attorney General, Office of Professional Licensing, and I have retained an attorney. This why you should complete a background and reference check on all contractors.

Response from Company:

This homeowner used us for his flood insurance. His remaining deposit was returned.
