We contracted with Element Drywall & Painting to prep for and install a soundproof wall that upon completion would divide an existing bedroom into two new in-home offices. The quality of the work exceeded our expectations. Gustavos ** and his team went beyond contract specifications to make sure we were fully satisfied with the work. Very competent, conscientious, and trustworthy. Highly, highly recommended.
Before the work began all furniture was covered with sliders, masking tape, plastic runners, and laundered drop cloths. Thick paper runways were rolled out from our front door to the work areas. Additionally, a filtration negative air machine utilizing a HEPA-activated carbon filter kept the dust in the apartment down and the air clean. Prep work done, the team framed the 10 ft wide by nine foot high divisional wall using a metal frame and studs. The team installed a resilient channel to reduce any sound intrusion to the other side of the wall and reinforced that with soundproof batting. Installation of expertly cut and mudded drywall was next, and a precise channel was cut around the doorways to further reduce any sound intrusion.
We choose where we wanted several electrical outlets to be located in the wall, each of which was then sealed with acoustical putty pads. A TV bracket was attached on the wall. On top of that, designed-from-scratch matching wainscotting and baseboards were added. Finally, an expert coat of primer and paint was applied. The project attained a level-five finish.
The team also primed and painted a separate wall that needed attention in the apartment. And at no extra charge the team fixed work by another contractor that was substandard. I would be happy to give a personal recommendation and answer any questions you may have about Element Drywall & Painting. Gustavos ** knows how to get in touch with me.

Make A Choice Home Exterior was a company that exceeded our expectations. After interviewing 5 different companies we knew they were the one that was going to assist us in the largest financial decision we had to make. We had never remodeled the exterior of our home, or any others and the task seemed overwhelming. Chuck was extremely knowledgeable in the process and took the time to listen to our concerns. His professional approach on “what is reasonable and customary” when starting a project of this scale made us both feel at ease. He provided many different options for repair, replacement and kept it all within our stated budget.
Choosing the paint colors was the only thing he said was, a personal preference and mentioned that Sherwin Williams is the best choice for exterior paint, and they have any colors that meet your expectations. Project took 2 weeks and came in on budget. Their crew was employed by MAC and not sub-contractors. They were on time, cleaned up at the end of each day and very respectful of our property. On Time. On Budget. Amazing results. If you are interested in having work done, please contact Chuck and the team at MAC.
“Breaker Panel Upgrade/Misc. work” I purchased a house and found some electrical issues that needed to be addressed. I wanted an electrician who could perform an inspection and give me an estimate for not only the known issues but for anything else that may need to be updated and/or corrected/fixed. When I started looking for an electrician, I was looking for someone who did quality work and that would do the job right the first time. I came across Blue Collar Electricians in my search and after reading the reviews contacted them for an inspection estimate.
Jacob initially came out for inspection. He was very knowledgeable and answered all my questions and concerns. He also pointed out some issues he had found during his inspection. After our meeting, I had a good feeling with the choice I made contacting BCE. I received a detailed estimate for all the work to be performed and the cost was reasonable. They scheduled two days for the work to be completed. The communication with Jacob and the office staff at Blue Collar was exceptional.
Jacob and co-workers (Jackie, Patrick & Tyler) showed up on time ready to work. They were all professional and did a “Quality Job” on replacing/upgrading to a 200 amp breaker panel in the house and a 100 amp breaker panel in remote building along with fixing all the other issues. After installation, they stayed late and performed an operational check on both breaker panels and labeled all the circuits. Jacob and Patrick did a final walk-through with me to ensure I was satisfied with all the work that was performed and answered any questions I had. On the first day they stayed late and finished the entire job. Again, they did an excellent job on everything. I give Jacob and his co-workers a five-star rating but if there was an option to give them additional stars I would.
We have hired two companies that are featured on Angi. The first company was to help us with some drywall and spackling issues that we were having. They came and did the work but we were not satisfied with it in the end. The owner came and looked at it himself and agreed that it was not on par with what their company considers to be good work. They did agree to come out and repair the portion of spackle, after a little bit of back and forth with the owner. We were given two options, one was that the person come out and fix it or that they give us half of our money back and we do it ourselves. We took the second option. The second company that we hired through Angi was actually referred to us by a friend and we didn't know that they were on this list. They did an exceptional job installing our floor and helping with the trim. We could not be happier with the job that they did. They were professional and courteous and detail-oriented.
When you have projects done on your house two things take place today.
2.) There are a lot of people who claim to be contractors who claim to have the knowledge but have not been at it very long.
The second category can be the most expensive contractors you will ever hire. This was my first time with Cornerstone and when I called, Joe was very polite and professional. He came to my home and went over all the roofs on the property. He then sat down with my wife and I and gave us advice as to what would be the best products to replace the roof with for the best life and performance. We had a bad hailstorm the week before and there was a lot of damage to our house and a lot in our area. I filed the claim and Joe from Cornerstone met the adjuster from the Insurance Company. They went over each building and discussed all the damaged areas and the proposed plan to repair it all.
Thanks to our technical assistance from Cornerstone, the Insurance Company agreed with all of the line items and paid the claim in a couple of days. We scheduled the job and the crew arrived at the promised time. The crew was amazing in that everybody knew their job and the roof was bare wood in the few hours. The crew stripped the roof and checked everything before beginning to install the new membrane and shingles. Because the house was built in 1992, the original roof was tired but more importantly, had been laid down on tar paper. The new materials started with a membrane type base material and name brand shingles. On the advice of Joe from Cornerstone, we added ridge vents and drip edges all around to pull heat out of the attic and give that added protection to the edges of the roof.
The job was finished on time, as promised, and when the Cornerstone Crew left the yard was properly cleaned up and looked as good as when they started. I have been a Manufacturing Engineer for over forty years and spent a lot of time on facilities projects. These guys all knew their jobs and really got things done quickly but, with amazing skill. The roof looks beautiful and once I get the trim painted plan on having Cornerstone install gutters all around to finish off the project. I am a really fussy customer and these guys really knocked it out of the park. Delighted with my new roof and would be happy to talk to future customers or even have them come and see the job Cornerstone did for me. Delighted to find such a great team of craftsmen in today's uncertain market.
A1 Quality tree service is a scam. Unprofessional, unreliable and totally unprofessional. The owner of the company Kyle Todd, promised a lot but delivered nothing. Money even came up missing out my vehicle. I wouldn't recommend A1 Quality tree service to my enemies. He dropped the top of the tree on the power lines and the whole area lost power for 8 hours. Horrible experience altogether. DO NOT RECOMMEND A1 QUALITY TREE SERVICE!!
Fixed existing fence, and added more wood to build additional fence as reinforcement. Also beforehand, they had to demolish a small cement wall directly in front of fence which caused the problem to begin with. Great company! Honest, reasonably priced, great work ethic, and truly caring about the people they're helping, and the work itself. I highly recommend Herrera Solutions!
Mike and his crew did and excellent job. Mike informed me of the procedure beforehand and was there to oversee the project from start to finish. I am very satisfied with the results of the project. Mike and his crew were very easy to talk to and I intend to recommend them to anyone who has a project to get done.
I was approached by a lady by phone for an opportunity to join what I thought was Angi leads, turns out it was Homeadvisor on steroids! If I had known I would have never signed up but, business was in a lull so I agreed! What a mistake. 90 percent of the nearly 25-30 leads were GARBAGE! Nobody would answer calls texts and emails and the maybe 5-6 that did were HIGHLY anoyed to be bugged by another pool builder. Only 2 were actually interested and only one actually followed thru with a meeting...the other stood me up and when I reached out they said they were not interested in a pool. Then one night in the middle of the night I got a notice from my credit card company telling me that a charge was posted to my acct from something called dot.com, so I had to cancel that card. I received notice from angi/homeadvisor that my card was not good so I called them.
I told them I had to cancel the card but I wanted to permanently pause the acct till further notice...she agreed. Now 2 months later I get a cal from them thinking they want their 20 bucks or so that my acct was overdrawn.. But NOOO. She said it was over $300.00 and might be going to collections. I told her it was nearly 20 dollars when I paused. She said not to worry and that she would research it and get back to me in a couple of weeks....no call but I did get a collections letter which had me know at nearly 400 dollars. I just called them and told the rep the story and he told me they only paused me for two days and sent me 6 more leads.
I asked to speak to a manager after he said he had no ability to look at the details of the account. The supervisor said something completely different and that they sent me no more leads after I paused and had no idea where the 20 dollar came from that he couldn't see the acct in detail either. Bottom line, this company has terrible leads and are ripping off both contractors and homeowners.
Submitting a review in this version of Angi is fine. The questions asked are not very specific about the job I hired, but there is plenty of space to fill it out in the open ended questions in the form. So, it is fine.
