    I had hired them before through Home Advisor, and had a great experience then. They came right out and gave me an estimate in a day or so. The made an appointment to do the work in a couple of weeks, but in fact they had an opening and were able to start the work in days. They worked steadily every day. The work they did was beautiful and skillful. They built a much better porch than the one that I replaced had ever been. They were pleasant to work with in every way. And they left the site completely clean. I recommend them in the highest possible term.

    We hired them to replace rotting wood on our porches and to then paint and stain them. They were extremely professional, communicated clearly and often, and meticulous in their work. The job was completed in less time than was promised. They worked hard for 3 straight days from 8:30 until dark. The crew was considerate and respected social distancing. I have recommended them to family and neighbors who will be using their service in the near future. I would happily use them again for future jobs!

    Thank you, Lila.We really appreciate your business.

    WARNING!!! These people are thieves! Do not hire these people they may have decent reviews but trust me they are thieves! They were asked multiple times to take a valuable antique off of the truck that was not supposed to be removed from the home. My mother is 95 years old she personally asked them to put her antique back and they refused and left with it. They were also instructed not to take the tools from the basement they proceeded to take these as well. Items they were specifically told not to remove when left alone they loaded the truck with those exact items.

    Response from Company:

    Firstly we'd like to apologize for any inconvenience this incident may have caused due to the lack of communication. When hauling waste our company requests having the customer to be present at the location the day of pickup to see all items that are to be hauled. We insisted in having the customer who hired us to be present to avoid any misunderstanding but when we arrived the day to pick up, he was not present and still decided he would like us to remove their waste without them being present. He had left the flooded basement door unlocked for us to remove the items. We were instructed to clear the basement of waste due to water flooding oc

    Hired to repair vinyl siding that came off during wind storm. Very responsive and timely coming out to provide estimate. Scheduled repair quickly once hired and came out on day scheduled and completed the repair. Would definitely hire again for any home repair needs.

    It had been hard to find someone to do this job, replacing attic stairs (we tried the find-a-company services at the two big retail chains and never heard back). It's too big for a handyman but too small for most big-deal contractors. Our case was extra challenging because the old stairs were a non-standard size, meaning there were shims that needed to be torn out. Owner Jack came twice to our place to check out the job (the second time briefly to make sure we had the right solution). He's extremely friendly and very responsive to phone messages. He had to custom-order our stairs; when they were about to arrive more quickly than expected, he had a crew in place to install them that day (we actually had him do it the next). The two-man crew were very pleasant, highly skilled, and blew me away with their thoroughness. They made an extra trip to pick up some casing to add to the visible side of the stairs as they sit in the ceiling, improving its looks 100%, and painted it to match the ceiling. What we have now in fact looks better than the original. Jack was present at the start and again at the end, and just after he left he rang our doorbell so he could say goodbye and shake my hand. Above all, it was clear that he and his crew take intense pride in doing a great and completely satisfying job.

    Response from Company:

    Thank you, Eric!
