Contractor came to give an estimate, but did the job right then, cleanly and efficiently. And quickly also!
Description of Work
Took sliding glass door off track, placed on his own work horses, adjusted wheels, replaced door. This door wasn't sliding properly, giving us a hard time opening or closing it. After the work was completed, it worked fine, like new!

All work was done very professionally, quick and the contractor cleaned after the work was complete.
Description of Work
The contractor repaired the laminated floor, which was damaged. It looks great and I was really surprised that this floor could be repaired. Also, I needed to replace the faucet and the contractor recommended the type a I need and replaced it and fixed a leak under the sink.

The provider scheduled an appointment to come look at a couple of small electrical issues at the home. Took off work for the afternoon to be around for the service. Appointment was cancelled 30 minutes before hand, with offer of moving it to another weekday (where I would again have to take off work).

Description of Work
came over (on his schedule) and looked around on friday, 04/24(baseboard installation) and was supposed to get back with a bid within 2-3 days. never heard from him again. dismissive, no personality, told me how much bond he carries and that he was a licensed contractor and i definitely got the impression that he felt this job (total of 600 plus feet of baseboard and laminate installation in one room) was far below his interest level.

Overall the project went smoothly. The work was completed quickly and looks nice. There were a couple spots that were a little messy. Also, the painter got paint on our duvet cover. Still working out a resolution to that issue.

A man came out and looked at the ceiling and around the exterior of the home. He said he was not quite sure what needed to be done and he would need to have his boss come out and look at it and give the estimate. He said he would have his boss call me and set up a time to come back out. Three weeks went by without a phone call and I thought this was just due to it being near the holidays. I did get a call at 10 AM from his boss letting me know he could be there in 20 minutes because he was in the area. I let him know I was on my way out of the house and this was not a good time. I asked if he could meet later in the week and he said he would get back to me to reschedule. I have not heard back from him and I still have this leak. I understand people get busy but it just would have been nice if he would have communicated with me.

I contacted them to come out and look at a leak I was having in the corner of my living room ceiling.

Not a good experience. When I first called Mr. Costa and told him of the projects I had, he acknowledged he could do that and would call me back. He did and said he would be over on a weekend to take a look. He did not show up, nor did he call to cancel. I called him within the next week to give him the benefit of the doubt in case I misunderstood him. He said that I did not misunderstand him and that he had a family issue to deal with. He subsequently called to set a date to look at what I had and give me an estimate. He did come over, but I never got an estimate. A week or so later he called and said he had a free day and could come over. When I asked him what would be the purpose, he said to install the cooktop. My project was to install a new kitchen sink, gas cooktop and fasten a ceiling cabinet that was breaking away. I told Mr. Costa that I would not buy any product until I had a commitment from a contractor to install it. NO ESTIMATE & NO COMMITMENTat that point. Now I am really getting baffled about this man. I do not know whether Mr. Costa had personal, business or other issues, but after weeks of trying, I called him the first part of December and left a voice message that I was going to hold off until after the first of the year to do anything. After much consideration and my experience with Mr. Costa, I have decided that he is not the reliable, stable contractor that I want to deal with.,

Nothing except to give me a couple phone calls and show up once to see what project I had in mind

Tenant used water on laminated floor and in some places the floor was popping up. Phil fixed it by carefully cutting out the damaged pieces and used callking to cover empty spaces. It looks very smooth and nice. The tenant couldn't close the laundry door. I asked three people to fixed it, but none did a good job. Phil adjusted the door and it works. The shower door was sagging and it couldn't be closed. Phil spend time and find a creative way to fix it. Works great.

Phil Costa is a fabulous find. From my first phone contact, to my first meeting for an estimate, to actual construction he was prompt, courteous, knowledgeable,and honest. Once he started I found him on the job by 8am, very responsive to my questions, more than willing to work with me with new ideas or changes, knowledgeable in all aspects of construction,and a true craftsman in his work. Once he started, he stayed on the job until finished, stayed on budget, and on time. I can't say enough positive things about Phil. I would highly encourage anyone with a home project or remodel to hire Phil.

He came and gave me a bid but I wasn't real keen on what he had to say. He came over and looked at one of my places and said he was going to give me a bid, but I never heard from him again and I never got a bid from him again. He gave me a bid on one of my other places but he never did get back to me on the place I was interested in doing. I feel that it would have been more professional of him if he would have at least let me know that that place was beyond his realm. I didn't think he was one of the more professional people. Maybe he needs to do smaller jobs but that was a big job I had him look at. It was a reasonable quote for the place that he did quote me, but perhaps the other place scared him off because he never did give me a quote on that one. I never did hear back from him. He did not follow up. He never called me on the quote that he did give me. It was a good price. He was very punctual.

Phill was Very Proffessional ! Final cost was the same as original quote, he was punctual, and finished when he said he was going to finish! We purchased the supplies and selected our own trim and garage colors. Phil matched the original paint to the house perfectly! Phil was very easy to talk to, very patient and flexible with scheduling times and dates to match our busy work schedules. We have used General Contractors before, and there always seem to be some sort of issues with price, times, delays, hidden costs, and overall satisfaction with the end job. When I say we had litterally no issues with Phil, it sounds odd, but we were more than happy with everything from start to finish! We have several other small jobs we need to tackle, and we will use his services again most definitely !!!
Description of Work
Repaired several stucco holes and crackes in the front of the house, walls, cielings, and pillars. Then repianted front of house to match original paint, then painted new trim colors for all pillars. Pressure washed garage, primed and painted garage with new color. Lastly installed a new doorbell. ( Front house face lift )

Phil was among the list of and quot;handymenand quot; I called to have stop by for an initial meeting so I could assess compatibilities. (Services offered, skill sets, attitudes and personalities) On the voice mails for all of the prospective professional construction service providers I left a message which included and quot; I have a major home repair and remodel project in which there are things I can do myself, things with which I need help and things I need doneand quot;. A few of the candidates removed themselves from consideration by never responding to the message. Several more answered the call, agreed to a meeting then were never heard from again. A couple were general contractors who to me seemed to feel their plans for my home superseded my visions and I should be grateful they would even indulge me by listening to the babble. On the other hand, Phil, returned my call, made arrangements to meet, at the agreed upon time, Phil arrived. Phil is professional and polite. Phil did recall the and quot; I have a major home repair and remodel project in which there are things I can do myself, things with which I need help and things I need doneand quot;. portion of my message. After a brief dialogue we determined due to my desired time frame, the scope of the project and the prior commitments which Phil had additional manpower would be best. Phil gave me the contact information for some other tradesmen and we began the work. As with any remodel there are behind the wall or under the floor surprises. We have encountered our share, as each issue was discovered a remedy was found that kept the integrity of my vision for the home intact while not blowing up the bank. The project is not yet complete, we are on the and quot;home stretchand quot; (pun intended) and it will be very gratifying to know I found someone with whom I was able to develop an almost instant rapport and whom is truly a team player that without whom I doubt the vision for the neglected house becoming My Home could have been realized. Phil, thank you is not enough. I strongly recommend Phil for any home improvement project.
