A few reviews for this pro...


Lori L.

Good. There were some unexpected issues due to the door being too narrow for the slide track which was my fault but they were able to install it by getting different size screws. This doubled the price that I was quoted but they did a good job. It slides beautifully.

Description of Work
Installed a sliding barn door

The big screen TV went fine. He did a poor job straightening the drywall. He was very rushed and didn't seem to care about it. I ended up straightening the drywall myself and got it perfectly straight after several days of measurements and work.

Description of Work
He tried to straighten my drywall. He also secured the big screen tv to the wall.

Problem # 1 Bedroom was a pink color before he painted the walls, when he finished there was a 1/2 inch of pink paint left unpainted where the ceiling and the walls meet, his excuse? The bid was for the walls only and no ceiling... part of that 1/2 inch line touched the ceiling. First thing you noticed when walking into the room was the 1/2 inch of pink paint, Being Disabled I had to hire someone to fix the pink problem. He could have easily fixed the issue but refused? took another painter 1/2 hour and it was a simple fix? Problem # 2 I have 3 doors leading into my kitchen area, one needed replaced, all 3 doors match in design, he hung a slab door which didn't match the other 2 doors.-- when he toured my home I explained and showed him the style of door that was needed.. Still haven't replaced the door.. Problem #3 Was to replace some door molding around a bedroom door, The wood work that frames all the wood in my home is a honey oak ( Solid wood ) He put up wood that was 3 shades lighter the original wood, I was gonna sand and stain the wood until I found out from a family member that the trim wasn't even wood but cheap PLASTIC. I gave him a chance to make it right with me and he refused. He worked for 8 hours, thats 65.00 dollars per hour, guess he thought he could take advantage of a single mother with a disability...

When they removed the old fan there was quite a mess with the insulation coming down from the ceiling. They install the new fan and even ran to the hardware store for an adapter. They were courteous and right on to the penny Dave had quoted us We will definitely have him back in the spring for some more fixer up work.

Description of Work
Dave installed a fan in a guest bath room. He brought a worker with and the job was done expertly They cleaned up after and did apologize for what they couldn't clean. They were both very professional.

Everything went AWESOME!!!!!!!

Description of Work
We have had Astec do many things in our home for the past 7 years, David has always done a wonderful job for us. He is neat, clean and efficient. We have had him do everything from fence in our back yard, to remodel both our bathrooms, put in a new floor, install fans, fix leaky pipes and repaired the sheet rock of the damage that was done by the pipes. I work with the public and I refer him to all my guests that are looking for help with anything.

Very well. He had an initial meeting to discuss the project, then provided a cost. He reconfirmed the day before to verify time and he was 15 min early to meet. He cleaned the mess and followed up later. Excellent.

I called and described the problem. Dave made an appointment to come out and give me an estimate. He was very professional and clearly explained what he was going to do to make the repair. He gave me a quote on the spot so we scheduled the repair. On the day he was scheduled to do the repairs, it was very snowy and windy (and schools were canceled,) so I wouldn't have been surprised if he wanted to reschedule, but he didn't balk a coming out. He showed up on time and got the work done. I checked in a few days later with my tenants to see if they were happy with the repairs and they were.

Description of Work
The ceiling texture in the bathroom of a rental property had peeled off right above the shower. I asked Dave to place some sort of plastic paneling up there so there would not be an issue with matching texture and he and his helper did an impeccable job. They also re-installed a fallen closet rack.

Dave brought a worker with him and reviewed and explained the process before they begin. They were neat and precise in their work and I was very satisfied with the finished job. I would not hesitate to hire them again.

Description of Work
Dave installed ceiling tile and a corner round/molding in a small bathroom. He informed me that the tile installed needed to be painted, which I hadn't known before. I have scheduled the painting to be done in mid January.

Dave was here last week to paint my bedroom wall and ceiling, and as with that day he did an amazing job today as well. On time, friendly and professional. I would hire him again in a heart beat. I have a newborn at home and just don't have the time to do this kind of stuff myself anymore.

Description of Work
Dave sanded and re- varnished the wood on the inside of some of my windows where moisture had got in. He also sanded and painted an outside post.

Karyn R.

Today, David arrived at EXACTLY the time he indicated, we went over my list, and he started work right away. He was here from 8:15 - 1:15. I am more than pleased with David's work, professionalism, and pride in work. I will definitely refer him to my friends and will hire him, again, to help with other projects I have in find.

Description of Work
This was my first experience with a business used from Angie's List that I did not know. David arrived for our appointment on-time. After telling him what I wanted, he suggested an hourly rate vs just hauling and moving stuff. I was pleased with his estimate and hired him for the job. I needed boxes moved and put on shelves, a picture hung, caulking inside and outside, 25 + lights replaced around the outside of my house, many items thrown away (he brought trailer and hauled to dump), a memory taken out of an old photocopy machine, fix mailbox, and stuff moved to and from a garage.

They were extremely professional, quick, and no padding of the original estimate. Communication skills were excellent. They called us several times to let us know their timing for finishing up prior projects in order to work with us on our schedule. They were organized and neat. Will plan on using their services again.

Description of Work
We had them remove a large corner built in office unit from our family room and then reinstall it in our basement office. They also removed the french doors off of our refrigerator so that it could be brought through the front door of our house. They moved the refrigerator into the kitchen for us, reinstalled the doors and hooked up the water line.
