Reviews in Tampa Bay for Porch Railing Installation

Ron Puckett Const. Inc.
1.0
This man presented the most dreadful workmanship I've ever seen. He was supposed to build wooden porch railings, add column covers and replace some rotted wood on a door frame. I showed him pictures of porch railings that I liked and talked to him in detail about finishes. I requested cedar because of its durability but, the wood he got was the cheaper rough cedar and he did not bother to smooth or sand it at all, the primer was just slapped on this unfinished wood. The rail pieces he brought to my house was the ugliest unfinished woodwork I've ever seen. Some of the wood had old looking yellowish paint on them and I was able to push my finger through a whole on a handrail piece, it was soft and looked rotted. It looked like some of that wood came from a scrap pile. When I expressed my disappointment about the workmanship and finishes, not once he offered to fix the railings, he just kept saying "this is what you order, this is what you signed, it's in the contract" and he got upset when I told him that I will not accept the pieces he build. When I said that I will get my neighbor who is a furniture builder to come and see the railings, Mr. Puckett quickly threw the pieces on to his truck bed, now visibly upset barking at me how much time he wasted putting it all that together and that I have to pay for him. I started to feel uneasy and wrote a check for $360. He left the column covers in place but, after closer inspection, I discovered paint runs, peeling paint, rough edges and caps and they are all about 3" shorter than the columns. The next day I wrote him an email saying that because of the poor quality he can come and pick up the column covers as well and I told him that I canceled the check. His response was a quote: "the 360.00 was for the cost of material just not the pine but the cedar that I took to the dump because I have no use for it. I spent 14 hours fabricating what you signed for in contract. If you cancel that check I will sue you for full amount of contract". Unfortunately, he was fast enough to cash that check. Please be aware, do not hire this man.

Dean and Chris were fantastic. The were on time, fast and did great work. Our heavy glass front doors were hanging incorrectly with gaps and seals falling apart. We had them replace all the hinges and seals. We can no longer see out the bottom of our doors! The front porch railings were rotting and had to be rebuilt. We had our back ones replaced a few years ago and it took the guy at least a week to complete the job and Dean did it in a few hours and did it better!

I had to be away on the day that the repair was to be done, but that was not a problem, since it was all outdoor work. When I returned home, it appeared that no work had been done. It turned out that the workman found a different area of rot on a different porch, and fixed that! On the second trip, he repaired the original area, so all in all, we got more than we expected, still at a very reasonable price. They were pleasant to communicate with and generally very responsive.

He fixed the wood railing and painted. Prime and paint required more than the 2 hours that I purchased resulting in the cost increase. HE completed the job in a timely and professional manner.

The technicians arrived early on morning they stated they would come in phone call nearly a month earlier. They worked on the railing cuts out by their truck to avoid metal shavings around the pool area after which they connected the two identical sets of railings in two separate locations into the existing pavers. They also shored an existing horizontal railing on the upper lanai. Workmanship was excellent. I did suggest dustpan and brush for bits of shavings on the steps rather than a blower, which would have put the shavings into the pool.

Avery Construction replaced everything in my living room. It was stripped down to bare walls & floors because of a mold issue. They had to remove my sliding glass doors & fix / replace everything. They also found that there was no insulation in my ceiling - so we ended up ripping that down too. He took out my hardwood floors (that were destroyed by the mold) and replaced it with tile - so they had to level the floor & prep it for the tile - then lay the tile for me. Their work was amazing & I was impressed with how clean they are! For so much work being done in that one room, I really didn't have much to clean up at all! We also had a leaking deck on my 2nd floor above the room with the mold. This was probably the cause of the mold - - - but they had to strip off the old deck & wrap around some kind of flooring that will make it so it won't leak in the future. While doing this, they had to remove my old railing (which was about to fall down anyway) - and replace the railing around my 2nd floor deck. We also had some minor other things that needed to be fixed according to my insurance company. I had just switched insurance companies - and after I signed on the dotted line, they came back to me with a laundry list of things that needed to be done in 2 weeks. Avery Construction was able to fit me in so that I was not cancelled by my insurance company. I am so thankful they were able to get it all done in the short time frame the insurance company gave me! This included a handrail be added to my deck that ran the length of my house - as well as a handrail being added to the steps of a storage shed because It has more than 3 steps up to it. Avery was able to make this all happen when other companies wouldn't have been able to get around to my job until a few weeks past my deadline. They also had to replace some of the T-11 (siding) around my house. My lawn guys had let the vines grow a little too much on my house. When we had that all removed (per the request of the insurance company) - we learned that some of the vines had somehow gotten behind the T-11 & were pushing it out from the house - causing it to decay & create a possible leak situation. Avery removed the damaged T-11 & replaced what was needed. I had full faith in their crew. Even gave them a key to my house & moved out while all of this was being done. It took almost 3 weeks for everything to be completed. I could have moved back in at the half way point - but I figured it was easier for them to work without me there. I'm usually very over protective of my house - always turing on the alarm when I get home & as I leave - but with Avery Construction, I felt I could trust them with everything & not have to worry about a thing. I feel so lucky to have found them - and to have them guiding me through this process that was not something I had planned to do right away. They were able to turn what should have been a negative experience - into a positive. I love my living room now - more than I did before! Laying the tile & painting the walls a color - totally opened up the room & I actually enjoy sitting in there more now than I did before. Everything happens for a reason - as long as you have the right people on your side. I feel very lucky to have had Avery Construction on my side & will for sure use them for other projects as well! :)

I wanted to add an additional hand rail to the stairway. Since I was doing that to also switch out the 2 other handrails so that everything was a bit more cohesive. The challenge was to somehow get the stain to match as we were not replacing the built in railing that is both on the bottom of the stairs (pictured) and the entire 2nd floor loft (not pictured) . I personally would have preferred to use pine as that is what the built in railing and previous handrails are made of, but I deferred to TBMW's expertise and was told oak was the only option for stair railing. I can say that the shape was an improvement over the pine. There were a few hiccups and several delays (hurricanes, supplier issues, etc) between the ordering of the railing, the initial install and the final stain color and reinstall. However TBMW was very responsive, kept me informed of status throughout and offered to make everything right. They took the railings back, re-stained and re-finished until the color was a better match and reinstalled the railings. Throughout the color correction process, not once did Kandi or any of her team lose patience with us. There were many communication challenges as I was traveling a lot during this time and would myself get frustrated with the nuance of wood types and how a stain color looks different based on what kind of wood it goes on, etc. My lesson learnt from this was to ask to see the color stain options before the project is stained. Because I had projects from them with stain before, without having to have these conversations, slightly color blind and trying to mix-match something, I hadn't realized how much lighting would make a difference. Initially I told them just to get as close as possible to at-least "blend" without needing to see it first. So for the re-stain, Kandi had them make 3 fully finished color samples and they successfully made a match. I feel fairly confident saying that they went above and beyond without complaint. We were very pleased with the final product. They suggested the bend on the 2nd floor rail and it makes such a difference use wise. The previous rail was shorter and set lower down the stairs. Ultimately the color was spot on. I marked C on price this time as I felt that for stair railing and the install it felt more expensive than I wanted to spend, especially when compared to the other products and services I have purchased from them. However because I knew that the rails would be installed properly (and not fall out of the wall) and they do look nice, I think there was value for the money. This was our 4th project with them.

called to set up an appointment for an estimate and set up a time. the repairman came earlier than stated while i was at work. no problem though as he left his cards with a friend that was staying with me. when i arrived at home , i called him and discussed the damage and repair options. after being completely satisfied with the response to my problem i set up an approximate date for the repairs to be done. to my surprise , he was available to start work sooner than discussed which i was very impressed with. once again , on the first day of repairs we discussed the work to be done. they were very professional and discussed in detail the job at hand, including potential costs of labor and supplies and how long it would take to complete the job. it took 3 days to do the work ( as discussed) and i have to say , not only did they do a fantastic job on the repairs , but the house looks better than the day i moved in 19 years ago. they even upgraded to hardy board as i requested and added flashings that the original builder neglected to include. very fine work . i would definitely recommended this company to anyone who might need this type of work done, thanks.

Bill's Painting
5.0
The exterior painting of my home was a project, long-overdue. A neighbor had painted it years ago, without applying a sealer, or quality paint. Bill was the first painter to provide an estimate for the job, and he possessed all the qualities that I value, when hiring a contractor. He was very knowledgeable, quality-minded, thorough, and detail-oriented. He really took the time to clearly explain everything, and answer questions throughout the entire process, including color advice. Bill also explained the type of quality paint, and special order sealer that he used. He was very professional, but personable and friendly, as well. Bill's son, and Julio were great workers - very courteous and respectful, with a strong work ethic. In addition to the painting, I needed extensive wood repair, from water damage, on my porch railing. Bill did a wonderful job rebuilding a large section of the wood railing. Also, he applied primer to all wood surfaces, prior to painting, to prevent future wood damage. This was not done on the original structure. My father, a retired home builder, was very impressed with Bill's carpentry skills, as I also was impressed. I would highly recommend Bill's Painting to anyone looking for a quality, reputable company. I greatly appreciate their expertise and workmanship!

John and Roger were on time and reliable through out the project - which took about 6 work days. They treated our home like their own. Politely asked how and where to set up their equipment and materials so as not to disrupt our living or our working - both my wife and I have home offices. They were detailed and conscientious in their work and creative in working around issues and contstraints posed by the construction of the existing staircase. The only detail that they missed was puttying the nail holes on the new treads before the final finishing was completed. Scheduling Chris to do the final sanding and finishing of the new treads and rails with the office was a hassle...but Chris did a great job. The office staff are not very customer-focused when it comes to communication, coordination and scheduling with customers - from our experience.
