The job was completed satisfactorily. We use handyman svcs (AKA Shaw Remodeling) with some regularity. Unlike most of the contractors we have dealt with, their phone is always answered by a person (during business hours), and messages always get through to the contractor, so things usually go quite smoothly.
Description of Work
Wall repair/re-plastering/painting related to installation of wall sconces, outlets and related wiring.

They were extremely difficult to get here, scheduling wise. I scheduled appointments and there was no show with no contact at all. They actually did come out to give us a quote and may actually end up doing some work. I started this process a week and a half ago calling them to schedule the appointment. I scheduled the appointment and 15 minutes before they could be here I got a telephone call telling me that they were not coming and wanted to reschedule. We rescheduled and then my daughter ended up being sick so I reschedule for the next day right away and they never showed up the next day. No telephone call and no nothing. I actually spoke with their office. Then I got a call and again they said that they were sorry and set up another appointment for Monday. They never showed up again. Then it took me 4 times but they finally came. The scheduling was spunk but when they got here they were really professional.

I emailed them on 1/8 asking if they performed furniture assembly, and if so when they'd be available and what it would cost. They emailed me back on 1/9 (great so far!) saying they wouldn't have anyone free until February but could schedule me then. I emailed them back on 1/11 asking to schedule, and asking again for an estimate. I emailed them again on 1/19, and never heard back. After posting the complaint above, they contacted me and we were able to schedule the bed and headboard assembly I needed. They called ahead of time, arrived early and were very professional and fast.
Description of Work
Bed, drawers and headboard assembly (IKEA).

Service Provider Response

I would like to apologize to Member for not receiving a reply to her two emails. I am not sure what happened but will definitely look into this. Communication is essential in our business as it is typically not the norm. We pride ourselves in being on top of emails, estimates and projects where our competitors fall short. As with any company, feedback is greatly appreciated so we can continue to grow and provide excellent customer service. I would like to thank Member for letting us know where we fell short of meeting her expectations and how we can eliminate this experience for future customers. Colin Shaw, owner

We called to request an estimate and Colin came two days later; we then received an email with the estimate a few days later. In a phone call, he answered some questions we had about who would be doing the work, and assured us that his crew consisted of professionals he'd worked with for years. Two men arrived exactly at the time promised, and the work was completed within two days (plus an additional visit to complete some sheetrock work). We were very pleased with the workers, who were polite, professional, and who left the areas cleaner than they found them! We would definitely use this company again. Phone calls are answered by a live, real person, and we even got a note after the work was completed thanking us for the work.
Description of Work
We used this company for three things: to install exterior handrails between existing columns on our porch and to install matching handrails on either side of our steps : to paint columns and some decorative trim around the front door; and to do some sheetrock repair in our basement.

The job was done competently, on time, on budget, with a minimum of fuss, and with full clean-up. The quote had been just a bit higher than we would have expected, but he did not go over, and given how hard it's been finding someone for small jobs, we felt it was worth the price to find someone who was insured and bonded - especially since we have a laundry list of small and medium sized jobs yet to be performed. We plan on using Colin's people again -in the very near future for some electrical work, small plumbing jobs, and even walkway and landscaping work. Time will tell if the new grout will mold again, but his office manager Marissa tells me that most of Colin's work is warrantied for a year, so we have confidence that if by some chance it's not done right yet, we know it it will be.
Description of Work
Two years after we purchased our house, cracks appeared in the grout in our tile-enclosed standing shower, in a newly added-on 2nd floor bathroom (right where the new construction met the old) - just due to "settling". At that time (two years ago) we hired a different handyman to re-grout. Over the next two years some of that grout mildewed, molded, and fell out. Even while the mold/mildew/falling out was occurring, we found it impossible to find a qualified handyman to come out for such a small job, till we joined Angie's List. We found Colin Shaw, who has what appears to be a fine operation with employees whom he can dispatch as needed, for small jobs and large. They dug out the affected older grout and replaced it quickly, and also replaced our back door weatherstripping (it had been scatched out by our dog, when she would scratch at the door to let us know she wanted to go out to the yard). Additionally, they mounted a brass kickplate on the door to cover the scratches there, and to prevent new scratches.

I asked them to provide estimates for work in our kitchen and also for fencing. They did the kitchen work first, on schedule and for the amount estimated, as that was the order I wanted it done. Then when I was ready to do the fencing, they responded and the fence material was ordered and installed within two-three weeks. They came to work when they said they would and they finished within the timeframe we discussed.
Description of Work
They put in split rail fencing. Work was done when scheduled, crew was professional. I had used them before on a small project in the kitchen and was highly satisfied with both their work and their timeliness.

Very satisfied. Once the project was started, the workmen came every day, 8-9 hours. The cooperation between him and us was great. The finished product is also great!
Description of Work
We had some ice dam problems where water came into the house causing havoc to the ceilings and around the windows. We were concerned with what was behind the drywall. He cut into some of the drywall to check the wood for no mildew or mold. He also checked the condition of the insulation for moisture. There were four rooms upstairs and four rooms downstairs that were checked. He also filled cracks and did other plastering/painting to alleviate the water spots, damage and mold.

They're really good and they come when they say they do. They're backed up, so they don't come right away, but they do come when they say they will.

Great job from start to finish.
Description of Work
I asked Colin to repair my siding, add some more siding, seal various holes that allowed mice into my house, and a quote for insulating and sheet rocking my garage. The pricing was dead on and the quality of his work is top notch. I've since called Colin back to give me some quotes and idea for additional work.
