Review by in Wallingford, VT
Project: Remodel or Renovate One or More Rooms
Chris has done 3 projects for us now, small to large. Kitchen update, exterior and interior renovation, windows. Very clean work, good with updates and communication, very capable of dealing with the inevitable curveballs of remodeling work. Great finished work quality and very reasonably priced. No surprises. We will be working with him again.

Review by in Rutland, VT
Chris was very polite and seemed personable and professional when we interviewed him for the job. He and his helpers were on the ball about getting the project completed in an emergency situation, however on the final day of the project he said the job was completed when he and another worker installed some upper kitchen cabinets in about 3 hours, when it was actually left unfinished. His hourly rate was quoted at $35 per hour; he really didn't give us a quote for the entire project. He charged us 8 hours per person that day, as well as a number of other days, whether they were there 3 hours or 8. Also, after some demolition we discovered this project was covered by insurance and we found that his repair costs rose dramatically when he knew insurance was paying for it. He did return to finish up the trim work and cabinets when I called and complained. For these reasons we won't recommend or hire him again.
Response by Summit Up Construction: Katherine. I came to your house under emergency situation because it was flooding. We were going to open up the walls, you were going to install a basement dry system by somebody else. We were going to repair the drywall and any painting needed. Once we got there and realized what we were up against. We realized it wasn't the wall leaking like a different contractor told you, it was actually a pipe leaking. We ended up doing way more work than we ended started. So obviously the price is going to go up a lot. We went from a couple days work to over a week's work for three guys. We pretty much gutted your whole apartment rip the walls apart all n

Review by Jeff C. in Brandon, VT
Chris was professional and up-front about cost and concerns about my project. I went with another contractor that was able to supply drawings and detailing of the actual project. I would recommend and consider Summit for future projects. UPDATE! I contacted Summit-Up, Chris responded immediately and was able to fit in finishing my project that another contractor started but left incomplete and went bankrupt.

I found Chris Sumner to be well informed and he did what he said he would do. He was always on time and did a thorough clean up when finished. I would not hesitate to recommend him.

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. Therefore, we recommend that before working with a service professional you verify that information presented is still current and/or acceptable to you.
