Business Overview

How We Got Started

I chose to work in this industry because & Ever since I was old enough to hold a screw driver Iv always loved wrenching on things. As time passed I followed in my grandfathers footsteps, nothing I couldn't concur. Thru high school I was in the wood shop as much as possible designing and building anything that came to mind. My first job at 15 years old was a plumbing apprenticeship, form there I changed jobs to building custom cabinets, doors windows and trim moldings that were shipped out to all over the world. Straight out of school I moved into building custom homes in the San Juan Islands. Once my adventure was over there I moved into larger projects, the industrial side. Working all over the state for nearly 7 years on anything form schools, water treatment plants, banks and multi million dollar homes. Once I decided to settle down get married and start a family I decided it was time to make my own schedule and spend my time near home..

We started in this industry in 2002.

We describe our business as Family owned and operated

Review by Pam H. in Everson, WA
Project: Install Cabinets
I hired Reality Contracting to install my custom walnut cabinets, $15,000. Tear out and lay vinyl composite flooring throughout the home, install 7 solid wood doors with jams, trim out 10 windows with sills, caulking around all newly installed trim and nail holes. The cabinets were installed incorrectly. The blueprints clearly stated flush mount. Brandon cut the panels to make indented ones. A local business, where I ordered my cabinets, Millworks, had to come to my home to show him how to install the cabinets correctly. At first he didnt even line up the cabinets horizontally, because he didnt put the toe kicks in or my crown moulding, when the pantry cabinets were sticking out and not lining up, he pushed on them to try and straighten them out. He ended up taking the achors out and redoing them. Later he told me he had never done a flush mount install. Custom cabinets were reordered and 11 weeks later the cabinet install was completed. We had no running water in our kitchen for 4 weeks. I informed this contractor at our very first meeting that my sub floor squeaked from water damage done 5 years before. He witnessed this when he stepped on it and heared it. I told him the sub floor might need replaced. He covered the sub floor up with my new composite vinyl flooring and the floor squeaks. Its not alittle sound, he really creaks. He disregarded my instructions. I took a picture of him laying the new flooring and you can clearly see the subfloor peeling up. I trusted him, my mistake. My new flooring has gaps where the planks meet. So upsetting. This company assured me he knew how to install doors with the jams. I ordered custom shaker style doors at $194. each. The doors were cut at the top and bottom to fit.... instead of adjusting the jams. He cut so much off on one of the doors that it was unuseable and a new one was reordered. The gaps are so large meeting floor to floor that I .... thats right I... had to install half inch transistion strips so the noise from the bathroom and laundry room wasnt heared outside of it. I had Brandon take off one of the doors and adjust the door jams because it was 2 inchs off the ground, he couldnt fix the other doors because he had cut too much off of them. Then he didnt even sand the door tops and bottoms where he cut, kinda jagged. I had him put up trim around each door and windows. Mistakes were made and it looked horrible around my kitchen bay windows. He fixed it at my insistance, but by taking the trim off the new paint was ruined. The nail holes on ALL of the trim boards are so deep. I was told by a contractor thats been hired by me that the pressure on the nail gun was set too high. I paid for caulking to be done. Some was done. BUT all that was done has turned to yellow. I dont know what cheap product was used. The nail holes are too big to do a normal job, Ive had to use putty, sand and paint. This company has ruined my life savings remodel. Im in my twilight years. I still have to fi

Branden was knowledgable about working in the San Juans at a non-ferry island. He completed the work in the time promised and left the job site tidy.

Review by in Bellingham, WA
We hired Reality to do a 2nd story bathroom addition at a time when local contractors were swamped. We found Branden to be hard-working, personable & communicative. Our old house presented the typical old-house problems with no 45 degree angles to be found. Branden was a clever improviser, regularly replacing the word "impossible" with "possible."

Brandon is very knowledgeable and an excellent communicator. He arrived when agreed and completed the job with minimal disruption and no fuss. I was very impressed with his explanations of issues he found and the quality of the work he completed. Tidies everything up afterwards and came in way below his original estimate. Very honest. Will hire again for future projects

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.
