Comments: Mr. Bates is one of the most efficient workers I have had in recent years. He is a good listener, patient, willing to give sensible, practical advice. He is methodical, skillful, reliable and upright. I am very satisfied with the quality of his work. His helper, Mark, is a powerhouse of energy, and very efficient in executing his assigned tasks.

Review Date: 03/25/2012 | Author: Allan A., Buena Park, CA

Comments: Where do I begin? I like that Michael arrived early. I liked his friendly demeanor and how he got right to work. I liked the fact that when the job become more involved than expected he didn't say a word bit kept on working. I liked that he did whatever was necessary to see that the job was done to my satisfaction. In spite of the extra work involved he never mentioned money. I liked that he wasn't rushing the job because of the extra work. I liked that he cleaned up afterwards. And because of his professional manner I paid him extra. Good and honest work should be compensated fairly. This is who you want for your home projects.

Comments: Michael came to inspect some buckling ceramic floor tiles. He determined that a water leak from my laundry room had caused them to buckle. He repaired the leak, changed out the valves, replaced the dry wall, textured and painted it. He also removed the damaged floor tiles and replaced them with new ones. Overall he did a very fine job and I would highly recommend him to my friends and neighbors. He is very prompt and cleans up after himself.

Comments: He was quick, efficient and did what he said he would. He also went above and beyond when he oiled the runners on windows that I didn't ask him to. My wife tells me that he also complimented the looks of our cat. You can't beat a guy who does good work and is polite.
