HOMEFINISHERS INC

SALESPERSON TOOK 3 DAYS TO RETURN A CALL. THEY USED HIGH-PRESSURE SALES TACTICS THAT WERE OFF-PUTTING. OVER PROMISED, SUCH AS ''WE CAN DO IT IN ONE DAY''. INSTALLATION SCHEDULER WAS VERY MAD THAT I APPLIED FOR A CITY PERMIT (REQUIRED IN MY TOWN) AND COMMENTED ''NEVER GET A PERMIT, IT CAUSES NOTHING BUT PROBLEMS''. COMPANY APPEARS TO HAVE NO PLUMBING LICENSE, SINCE AFTER I GOT THE PERMIT, THEY HAD TO FIND A LICENSED PLUMBER, (NOT PREVIOUSLY ASSOCIATED WITH THEIR COMPANY), TO INSTALL THE NEW VALVE. BOY AM I GLAD I GOT A PERMIT. I GOT THE IMPRESSION I WAS BEING LIED TO AS TO WHY IT TOOK SO LONG TO SCHEDULE (6 WEEKS). THE PLUMBING WAS DONE IN ONE DAY, THE REST WAS DONE ONE WEEK LATER. MEANWHILE, SHOWER/TUB UNUSABLE. INSTALLER WHO GLUED THE FIBERGLASS PANELS TO WALL CLEANED UP AFTER HIMSELF AND WAS COURTEOUS. THE WORK DID GET DONE AND I AM SATISFIED WITH IT NOW THAT IT IS OVER, BUT I WOULD NOT HIRE THEM AGAIN DUE TO OVER-HYPE, SALES EXPERIENCE AND APPARENT LACK OF PLUMBING LICENSE.

John was excellent. He touched up and applied a coat of poly to our front door and it came out great. Fiberglass is difficult to touch up and the stain he brought didn't work well. Given the quote he gave was primarily for the poly application and only for very minor touch up, he could have left it at that and done an acceptable but mediocre job. But he took the time to go back to the hardware store and found something that worked perfectly. He went well beyond the time I expect he assumed when he quoted this small job. He showed a conscientiousness, ingenuity and commitment to do the job right that makes me comfortable in using him again for bigger jobs in the future. I highly recommend him.

We are very pleased with The Surface Doctors. Planning and scheduling the project with Gunnar was easy due to his prompt and thorough communication, mostly via email. The date of the refinishing went very smoothly. The refinisher took great care to keep the area clean. The end result is beautiful!

THE SERVICEMAN WAS EARLY BUT NOTIFIED ME OF SUCH. HE WAS POLITE AND FOCUSED ON HIS WORK. THE REPAIR WAS WELL DONE AND DID NOT LOOK LIKE AN OBVIOUS REPAIR. I HAVE NOTHING TO COMPARE THE PRICE BECAUSE ALL THE OTHER COMPANIES I CONTACTED DID NOT MAKE THIS KIND OF REPAIR AND I HAVE NEVER HAD ANYTHING LIKE THIS DONE BEFORE. HOWEVER, IT WAS WORTH THE MONEY TO ME TO HAVE THE TUB REPAIRED RATHER THAN REPLACED.

Haris Inc
5.0
Extremely happy with the Haris Inc's work remodeling our basement bathroom. As a result of having to tear out walls and floors for foundation work, we had the opportunity to make improvements to a basement that is a critical living space in our small house. The project involved replacing an ancient fiberglass shower stall with a new fangled solid surface manufactured stone unit, replacing tile, lighting, and paint in a small bathroom and replaced tile in a main laundry area. As is often the case with older homes (50's) the Haris crew ran into unexpected surprises that were covered up by previous homeowners. While expanding the shower to accommodate a standard 36" base Haris had to break concrete to move the drain, remove and relocate corroded iron pipe. They were also faced with significant floor pitch throughout the basement that was masked by old tile with tons of thin-set. The project lead presented us with creative options before taking any steps that added to the cost of the project. Importantly, the crew was extremely tidy and well aware that their work would be messy. Each day they laid out and picked up drop cloths, vacuumed (often while sanding or cutting) and stored their equipment to minimize the impact on our daily living.

The original bronze drain "basket" for a fiberglass shower stall connecting the drain to the copper pipe beneath had completely fractured, dumping virtually all drain water into the utility room below, probably aggravated by 25 years of using harsh corrosive products to clean the shower. "Joe," the business owner, responded promptly to cut out the old corroded "basket" and replace it with a more state-of-the-art PVC basket that will be impervious to such chemicals. Joe does meticulous work and is very deliberately respectful of property; for example, by donning fabric "booties" to protect interior carpeting and by taking care to place heavy tools down carefully on padded surfaces to avoid collateral damage. When the initial installation appeared to leak slightly, Joe reseated the drain and "stress-tested" it under pressure with his weight applied at the top until it was clear that we had a perfectly sealed drain. I have since been delighted with the result and recommend him highly for plumbing services.

Aron was little busy and we started this afternoon instead of 10AM-11Am as scheduled. Aron and his partner began working immediately. My bathtub was in good condition and just needed the glossiness restored after leaving I found some minor pitting or bubbles that might cure itself after it drys. However I called Aron and left a voicemail about that problem. I have NEVER paid any contractor in cash except Aron because he seemed trust worthy. I hope to hear back from his company if there is a problem. The finish looks very good but still needs to set up overnight. The products used was excellent and color match was from Kohler instead of TOTO but no big deal off white is off white!

On time, as agreed upon. Because I don't live in this property, I'm out of state and on the road frequently, I did nearly all of my communication with Refinishing Plus via email and on the day of, with text messages. They did a very nice job and I would hire them again. The only "bump" was totally my fault. I had removed the fixtures and purchased replacements. I did NOT dry fit them before the refinish. Afterward, I discovered that I had to sweat a new pipe onto the existing tub spout and it was very close to my newly refinished surface. Fortunately, we were able to shield the heat from the tub and get it done. Otherwise, I would have had to call them back to fix my blunder. Make sure you dry fit your new parts BEFORE they refinish in case you need to make adjustments.

I had my fiberglass tub refinished, the price is EXCELLENT! The guy was very friendly, 1st appt was a no show. Rescheduled for a few weeks later, finally happened and it looked excellent (beware do this in the summer when you can have ALL you windows open, the smell is bad!). I had to recaulk the edges myself, no problem, then a crack I had patched broke again and the tub was unusable (the crack was on the floor and I didn't want water to leak below). This was 2 weeks after it was done. It took about 1 month for them to come out (he said it was the busy time of year, around X-mas). Appt was for 9 am, finally the owner came at noon. I thought Lucas, the guy who originally did it, was going to come, instead it was the owner Al. Well it's fixed, it took a couple hours, hopefully it'll last. There is a blob of foam on my bathroom floor but other than that he left everything clean.

I contacted Handy Men & Mrs. Helper through their web portal. I received a prompt call back from Faith and we discussed my needs. We scheduled an appointment with Mike to come by and provide a quote. I was immediately impressed when we discussed some rust stains on our home’s exterior and Mike provided advice on how to easily remove it myself (rather than repainting and charging me for it). I was pleased with the quote and we easily scheduled the work to accommodate both my schedule and Mike’s. Mike arrived exactly on time, worked quickly and efficiently, and did a really good job controlling the dust and mess of painting the ceilings in our main living area. The job took several days and Mike communicated clearly his plans and was always on time. I was very pleased with the entire experience and will gladly use Handy Men & Mrs. Helper – and Mike – again.

The work involved many more trips back and forth to numerous stores in order to compensate for the fiberglass frame. He always called to let me know how things were progressing and assured me it would not be necessary for me to be home as he could access the door from the outside....he was just keeping me posted!

Recent Review: I had wood windows with aluminum exterior facing that were about 25 years old. A number of them had bad seals or the interior wood was discolored due to moisture over the years. I had no luck finding replacement seals and my wife really disliked how the interior wood was looking so we chose to replace all windows rather than replace just the bad ones. If you choose wood windows you better plan on resealing them regularly. We decided on the Marvin fiberglass windows because of how wood like they looked and the quality of the constructions. Vinyl wood look options just had a cheap look. Marvin fiberglass windows are not cheap but I was able to negotiate some off of the initial Next Door and Window price. Everyone from Next Door and Window were professional in their dealings with me. Included in the price was removal of entire window including frame, Other companies may be cheaper by leaving in the old frame but i wanted all new. The price also included our choice of stains for the windows and interior trim in the Next Door and Window factory (eliminates in home mess). The on-site new window installation included foam insulation to fill any air gaps, the interior trim pieces, and filling of any small brad nail holes from the trim installation. .Installation went well though it took longer than expected since only a 2 man crew showed up when i was expecting a 4 man crew. Finishing up was a bit rushed so the walk through and demo of how to work the windows was rushed but turned out ok. We were missing one screen and noticed one trim board that looked bad after they left. Both were taken care without incident but took a little while till they came back out. Conclusion: I could have spent less elsewhere but i expected quality, paid for quality, and received quality. In hindsight, i would choose Next Door and Window again and recommend them to friends and family.

Recent Review: When I scheduled the appointment, I told them I had the Angie's List coupon. They asked me some questions about the layout of the job and I explained. They also tell you the drain shoe (and fixtures, if I remember correctly) needs to be removed by you. They don't want to be responsible for damaging the drain when removing it, which apparently happens a lot. Well it happened to me. I thought it was going to be a major problem, but it was a relatively cheap and quick fix. You have to chisel it out and buy a new one. I was late about a half hour they day the guy was supposed to start. He didn't wait for me, but I don't hold that against him. We rescheduled four days later. He arrived promptly. When he assessed the job, he called his boss. The owner spoke to me and explained that it would cost more than the $250 I had already paid for the Angie's List coupon ($465 dollars more). I knew these jobs were going for more than $250, but a total price of $715 was way more than I thought. In other words, the Angie's List deal was no deal at all. In fact it locked me into a more expensive deal of which I had no way to get out of considering they already had my $250. The owner explained that the Angie's List deal is a way for him to advertise and that he doesn't make any money from $250 job. The description of the job that was covered by the deal was vague enough for him to charge more for the extra work (square footage) that it would require. Fine, I was pressed for time and took it like a man. Lesson learned. You're welcome, Angie's listers. In hindsight, if I had the time I would have just replaced the entire stall myself with a brand new one for less money. I could have bought a new one for less than $300. The technician performing the work was clean, courteous, and quick. I think it took about six hours. It looked great. It better, for the amount of money I paid. I worry about the long term durability, but so far so good. If you can do the work yourself, you're better off installing a new unit. For a quick fix, a refinish is cheaper than having someone install a new shower/tub for you. However, you may be able to get it cheaper than I paid without locking yourself into an Angie's List Big Deal.

What do customers in Chicago say about Repair Fiberglass Shower?

Excellent! Careful discussion of the project before the estimate. After acceptance of the job, we met to discuss what would be needed to buy and timing. Another contractor had told me the the old fiberglass stall area was a nonstandard size and that the shower pan would have to be a custom-job. Not so, an unusual size but available. All my concerns were addressed. Work started promptly and was finished ahead of schedule. All debris was removed carefully and carpets protected. Though it wasn't specified in the contract they also installed a shower curtain rod and the vanity sink without additional charge.
