cc  It went wonderfully. The workers were skilled and persistent. They were pleasant to have around -- no loud music or littering. (This is in contrast to workers from a national chain at the house next door who were loud and littery.)  The work completely transformed our entryway. Our house is over 100 years old and Ken was helpful in assuring that the new entryway would complement the style of t...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
Ken Adams worked with my wife and me to redesign our entryway  --  including walkway, steps, doorway and side panels. We reviewed suppliers and styles. We chose bricks and Indiana limestone. We chose colors. We chose a new door and under Ken's urging replaced outside panels with "lights".  Ken has an excellent aesthetic sense and all of his suggestions were useful in this preliminary  stage/

Awful from start to finish and not even punctual.  Where to even start?  There was a crucial lack in basic communication with the other contractors, resulting in not getting what we expressly ( as in, told Adams numerous times what we wanted and expressly didn't want) wanted.  We didn't get the heating method we expressly  wanted and ended up with what we expressly didn't want. Adams hadn't convey...

I just saw your review from March 2014 about the work we did for you in 2008, 6 years earlier. I'm confused why we didn't hear anything from you about your complaints during the previous 6 years. And sadly, I'm shocked. Neither Pam, nor I had any idea about your unhappiness. On the contrary, until you closed your hair salon roughly 4 years after the remodel, Pam and I came to you for haircuts excl...

The  work was delayed and sporadic. The decking material (an installation of Playguard squares) was applied on the morning of the first significant snowfall. I realized the deck was not level. Because the deck is on the northside of the house, we had to wait until spring to walk on the surface and experience the user-unfriendly slope. In the meantime, I withheld final payment ($4,000) and Adams se...

We are very saddened to read of the complaint of water leaking through the Playguard decking on your porch. There may be some confusion however, because Playguard decking is porous and intended to allow water to pass thru to the rubber membrane below. Adams Design Construction warrantees our work and takes pride in providing 31 years of professional service and customer satisfaction. We would alwa...
