Lil Brother helped me get my house ready to go on the market. Their work was exceptional. They were timely, polite, kept me updated when there were adjustments to be made including catching a small roof leak I had missed. They are always my first choice when I need repairs around the house. In addition to their high quality of work they are also dedicated to service in our community. Jean and Stev...

Needed to replace/repair some rotted cedar siding on two-story house. Received prompt response to request for estimate. Not the lowest bid, but other Angie's List reviews regarding professionalism and customer service were persuasive. And I was not disappointed! Crew was always on time and always took care to communicate plans and progress. Quality of work was excellent -- the company prides itsel...

I had some loose steps in a section of my stairs and a broken handrail. I contacted Lil Brother, because they had good ratings and accept credit cards. For the estimate, they showed up on-time, thoroughly explained what needed done, and got back with a detailed estimate within a few days. Due to rain delays with another one of their projects, they were able to get the work done a couple of weeks b...

Someone came out to survey the work to be done and took the information saying that they would be in contact with me about the estimate. I waited at least 3 to 4 weeks with no call or contact from the company. Then I sent an email trying to find out the status. Didn't hear anything. Finally I contacted another company that gave me an estimate quickly and an install date within a weeks time. I ther...

[Member Name Removed], we are sorry for this experience. We had one of our staff admitted in the hospital in ICS and he has not returned to work even as of today and it set us back on get out our estimates. This is not normal for our company. If you would like to give our company another try I will make sure you get an additional $50 off your labor cost. Again we apologize for your bad experience....

The team arrived promptly, worked most of the day and completed all 13 items on my list. They were professional, cordial, helpful and completed all work exactly as I requested. They encountered a few challenges hanging curtains in an unusual space and it barely slowed them down. I would hire this company again and highly recommend them.
