I contacted Rick and we set an appointment for him to come to my house, discuss some remodeling we are going to do, and obtain an estimate needed for closing our (approved) refinance loan with Neighborhood Finance Corp. I left work early to meet with him as the appointment was for 5 PM. At 4:45 I received a call from his wife saying that he asked her to call, that he was hung up on another job and...

The details are small as I am still waiting for a response from this provider. How long does one wait before they start looking elsewhere? I ended up using another service to find a handyman.

Des Moines, you will be shocked but there is an honest contractor working in the area. Rick spent two hours in my home just to give me an estimate. He not only diagnosed the problem with the subfloor and underlayment, he also showed me other problems in my home. It was amazing how much he could tell about my house by just walking through it. If I ever sell this house and buy another, I will hire R...

Description of Work
I had fractured tiles throughout my house, entryway, kitchen, and both baths – much of the first floor of my townhome. I hired Rick Spurgin to diagnose the cause of the fractures and then remove the old tile and underlayment, fix whatever problems were causing the multiple failures, lay new cement board and re-tile the house.

Home Improvement 4 Less designed a solution to give us a tub and shower in this little bathroom without taking out the window. And then introduced us to a wonderful plumbing concept called PEX. to give us better water quality and pressure. He scheduled the demolition in such a way that we were able to still take bathes and have a functional toilet right up to the change out of fixtures. Then he in...

When the crew arrived they had a meeting and walked around the outside discussing where to lay tarps over flowers and shrubs where the dumpster was going to be and that the clean up was as important as the install of the roof was. They were all on the same page. In the plan they made it very clear they were only going to tear off what they could put back on before leaving that day because a surpri...

Description of Work
Complete tear off of 3 layers of shingles and 1 layer of wood shingles. Removed old brick chimney. Installed new osb sheeting. Applied new felt paper and ice guard to porch roof areas. Installed new ventalation system.new drip edge. Upgraded us from a 30 year shingle to a 50 year shingle and no extra cost. Our home is the original old 2 story farm house that my great grandfather built over 130 years ago. Its important when selecting a contractor that they are going to be respectful of these old historical homes. And understand that this is'nt your typical roof job, It's preserving a piece family history that will be handed down for generations to come.

They were there at time designated and worked quickly and efficiently. Cleaned up after themselves which was a plus to me as a senior citizen. Explained what they were doing and were done in one day. Very cordial and easy to talk to and ask questions if needed. Checked over everything they had done before leaving and asked us to check and see if we were satisfied with their work before getting pai...

It was such a privilege and an honor to do work and repairs on their mobile home for such a nice Christian couple. I would like to thank them for their hospitality and making us feel right at home it was like doing work for my aunt and uncle. We're glad that you called upon us and we were able to save you some money on your repairs.

Everything on this project has progressed smoothly from start to the current stage. There were no real hiccups that weren't easily dealt with. A wall was moved, which put a heater vent from inside to outside the bathroom. They simply cut a new hole inside the bathroom, and covered over the old vent with wood flooring - matches perfectly. The owner, Rick, was always very upfront obout any concerns,...

Description of Work
This is another project that I had this company tackle, I have been so impressed with previous work - bathroom remodel. When I moved in this home, the master bath included a "heart shaped" jacuzzi tub and some pretty dated and cheap fixtures (80's era), including cheap gold faucets and plastic moldings, a nonprofessional tile installation on the tub surround (crooked cuts and excess mortar), dated linoleum flooring, and some dated oak veneer fixtures, and a cheapo plastic corner shower. I had them gut the entire room (minus the jacuzzi tub), and prep for tiling and replacement of the plumbing to plan for an entirely new layout. Corner shower removed, all tiling stripped from the tub, linoleum floor stripped, new subfloor, walls prepped for all new tile, move plumbing to rearrange layout. Additionally, I had them install all new shower system FOR the jacuzzi tub, turning it from just a tub into an entire shower/tower system. This includes 10 shower heads in total in the walls (3 in the ceiling, 2 on the sides, 3 in front, 1 that fills the tub from the ceiling, and 1 steam port to act as a sauna. As well, the owner designed a water feature that runs separately if desired. A waterfall that activates with a flip of a switch cascades from the top of the shower which can be run with the shower off for ambient visual/sound effect and for humidity in the winter.) This entire system in self contained, computer controlled, and includes waterproof speakers that allow you to access music on your computer, or radio stations wirelessly. In the mornings, I enjoy listening to NPR, or ZZTop if I need a pick-me-up. :) The entire project is not yet complete (about 80%), there is tiling left to do and some fixture installation and a glass surround for the tub, as well has heated electric flooring system. (I have them working on other more pressing projects currently). Everything however, is entirely functional, and I can take a quick but grand shower before heading off to work!

Once again [member name removed] had an awesome vision for a shower that is like HGTV times 10. We installed a state-of-the-art Kohler 10 shower head system complete with steam generator and cascading waterfall down the wall behind the tub. This design included a state-of-the-art controller which allowed each individual person to have their personal preference ok shower heads and water temperature...

Mr Spurgin was consistently professional, inquisitive, and courteous. He was sure to let me know that he wanted this project to reflect what I wanted it to be. At the same time, he was willing to offer suggestions or advice if I seemed hesitant in not knowing what I might want. The work was quick, clean, reasonable and really, I coulldn't be happier with the results. It's one of the pieces in the ...

Description of Work
My kitchen (and house, for that matter) is desperately lacking in storage space (a small farm house build in 1939). I had seen a picture once in a magazine of a multifunctional shelving unit. It held books, knicknacks, flowers, potted plants, plates, bows, utensils, etc... anything you might want to arrange or store. It took up the entire wall and was made up of several diamond shaped "cells" to allow for storage to look something like the following. The top and bottom are adorned with custom crown molding and base. A quite complicated design, given the aged and crooked walls. I asked Mr Spurgin to custom build a cabinet based of a rough sketch I had created. This computer drawing doesn't nearly do it justice, but it looked vaguely like this for reference. Imagine a typical square bookcase almost literally being turned on its corner. It makes for an incredibly interesting way to arrange and store: _________ [XXXXX] [XXXXX] [XXXXX] --------------This piece takes up a wall running half the length of the kitchen, literally 12ft long and 10ft high, a massive storage unit. Even though there are literally nearly a hundred cut pieces involved in the structure, it is virtually seamless. If you didn't know differently, you would think it was one single, solid, fabricated unit. And, indeed, it IS a solid unit! I'm pretty sure the kitchen floor used to creak before it was installed! I have been able to free up nearly a quarter of my kitchen space with this single practical unit, as well as it being a stunning piece of furniture.
