Description

My name is Gary Tallman, and I am a semi-retired General Construction Remodeling Contractor of 35 years to Eastern Iowa. We are the home of the perfect install. A few years ago I decided to slow down a little and to simplify things a bit. We did this by narrowing our business advertising focus to primarily market for the repair and replacement of residential and commercial doors, windows, and skylights. It's been a perfect match for me because it takes a full skill set to do this work, and it helps to keep me off the taller ladders..and that makes me a happy craftsman :) I'd like to mention that we chose to honor the community by offering senior and military discounts.

I received a call from them a week after submitting a request. We agreed on a time to meet and they would give me a price quote for work done. They never showed. I received a call from them a week later and we agreed on a new time. They said they would be working in my area so it was no problem. They never showed up for the second meeting. No call, nothing. I just gave up on this individual.

Gary came out and took a look about three weeks before we were ready for the work. He gave us all the information necessary to order our doors and the necessary hardware recommended. Once the doors arrived, he scheduled to come out within the week to do the job. The old storm door was not operating properly due to some issues with how tight the opening was. Gary opened this up and framed in the ne...

Very good carpenter skills . Looks really nice . Only thing I thought was kinda not appropriate was it states in The contract they will use off premises bathrooms and they both Asked to use are bathroom not one but twice . The labor was very expensive beings that it was $750 to just Install the two doors . Their work is very nice but I think $750 is a Bit much .

Tony, thank you for this work. I must admit that I was somewhat surprised and disappointed by both of the D grades you gave us. Regarding your dissatisfaction with the price of this work: I feel compelled to point out that this price was 100% pre-negotiated and signed by both you and I prior to the commencement of any work and did not include any upcharges whatsoever, as your D grade would seem to...

I found People Doors on your website. I call Mr. Tallman and he returned my call immediately, came to look at the door, wrote down exactly everything we needed to purchase and had the quote to us on the same day. Our home is very old and the old door was a very odd size. He did an amazing job of re-framing and installing the door, even with some very strange problems along the way. He always told ...

Thank you for your review. FYI, shortly after I didn't this work for you I decided (for marketing purposes) to change my company's name to Cedar Rapids Entry & Window -or- CREW, for short. Just thought you should know this in case you needed to contact me for any new work or referrals. Thanks again.

Gary was very prompt, professional, knowledgeable, and his estimate was spot on. I work for local architects and engineers and have many years experience in the construction industry. Gary demonstrated a high level of reliability-I was comfortable leaving him with the project well in hand while I didn't miss work. The project was started a little late in the season and they were very accommodating...

My mother needed to have a door replaced and a securitly light installed. Gary showed up to give an estimate and very detailed instructions on what we needed to purchase the very same day we called him. After the items were purchased, he was there that day to install everything. He spent a great deal of time making everything just right. We appreciated the time he took, not only on the installatio...
