I can go into detail about how bad the work was but I think all I need to tell you is that Al sent a worker who was drunk at 8AM. Ah what the heck I'll tell you a couple of quick things that went awry beyond the drunk worker who was doing the job. Al change the job on me. This was my first time hiring a contractor and I got taken for quite a ride. He said he was going to completely replace the stairs because they were so bad. Ended up the stairs were so solidly built that they couldn't remove them. They ended up doing some nominal work and still charging same amount. Very convincing talker this Al is. Get everything in DETAILED writing. Make bullet points and leave out no detail. Put in what will happen if any of the agreed upon points are broken or changed without approval. Some things are reasonable of course but not knowing that the stairs are so solidly built that you can't even remove them and then changing the job, now thats either amateur hour or something more. Also do not pay all at once. Normal payment schedule is in thirds with last payment at the end. Remember to tell Al you don't want any alcoholics working on the job for you.

I needed to prep my condo for resale. A.R. Decorating and Remodeling were perfect for the job. The did everything that was needed, with quality outcome, at a fair price, within the time frame I needed the work to be completed. They painted the whole place, restored the sashes and chain mechanism of windows in my 100 year old building, washed them inside and out, reglazed the bathtub and did many handyman fixups. I did not have to take even one hour off work. Allan Redmond, who runs the operation, is professional, knowledgeable and responsive. He sent me photos of the progressing work during the day and answered my questiions, texts and emails at all times, so that communication and expectations were clear, throughout the project.

We had an issue in which some of our cabinets needed to be cut and adjusted. When we brought this to his attention, he wanted paid for what he had done and wanted to bail on the project and not follow through with it because he had another job lined up. I felt that was very unprofessional and not what I had hired him to do. The other thing is that he made promises, but he did not return to finish the job after he got his money. He did not install support strips for the cabinets either, and he was unresponsive in resolving that problem. Myself and my husband called and left messages, but we got the clear impression that he was not going to finish the job or return our calls.

Description of Work
Hired him as a general contractor for my kitchen remodel, he was to do the cabinets, drywall, and paint.
