In the spring of 2018,I hired John to build an entryway deck, 6x16. He drew up a contract, and proceeded to pull a permit for a 9x16 . We have a security system, and were able to monitor progress. John was nowhere to be seen, just a couple of young men. We became alarmed that the deck looked larger than it was supposed to be, and decided to make a trip up to see the progress. To our dismay, the deck was 9x16, and very poorly built. It was level with our front door, ideal for snow and ice to build up, melt, and seep in. And in doing this, they lopped off my custom door trim, instead of at least cutting around it. No flashing was used where it was attached to the house, and only one of the footings was above grade. in numerous places, decking boards were attached to the stringers with 4 or 5 nails where the "carpenters" obviously "missed", and in other places, there were no nails at all. When confronted with all this, John had no explanation, but admitted that he "usually recommends" that clients build a big enough deck for a table! He offered to take off half of the remaining money owed, which was not acceptable to us. This deck was ugly, substandard, and would lead to future problems. We asked John to remove the deck and refund our deposit. He offered to rebuild, but our trust in him was gone. He then agreed to remove it in September and give us a refund. At the end of August, I texted to ask if we were still on schedule, and he again refused to work with us. Me and my husband (60 and 64), removed the deck ourselves, and hired another contractor to replace it. We still need to repair the patio that was damaged by incorrectly placed footings. In December of 2018, I again reached out to John for the last time asking for a refund. He promised to send money. When I still had received nothing by March, I began legal proceedings.

Project: New Window - Single
Work not completed as yet, so cannot rate quality. Of the other 2 pros, one never called and the other - Capizzi - was incredibly expensive, over twice John MacKenzie's bid.

We hired John MacKenzie for a home remodeling project. John and his team are talented, dependable and an absolute pleasure to deal with. All aspects of the project were completed in a timely manner and to our satisfaction. Since we were impressed with the work ethic and craftsmanship displayed during that initial project, we decided to hire his team for our kitchen and den remodeling project. We are in the final stages and have been pleased every step of the way. Five Star work! Would highly recommend and he will be our first call on all future projects.

Responded immediately. Helped with a number of issues from small repair to complete install. Directed me to another good service for a different (screen door) job. I would highly recommend Mr MacKenzie and his team.

John was professional and thorough with all of our interactions. He finished the project ahead of time and has checked in with us to see how we're doing with the new sliding doors. I will definitely use John again for future projects!

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.
