A bunch of old men, satisfied with the status quo and who use high pressure sales tactics to sell products at a ridiculously inflated price. If this is the kind of company you want to give your business to, good luck.

Horrible sales/marketing scheme. Said they needed 60-90 minutes to give a no pressure, in-home estimate. They were late, and then spent over an hour just telling me how great their company is. They wanted over $10,000 to replace a bathtub.

BUYER BEWARE!! Good AND bad, please read carefully!!

This company is NOT a company I would ever go with again. For starters, they sold door to door and claimed they had just done work to someones house in the neighborhood. We live in a small neighborhood and never saw anyone doing work of any kind in the month before they came. At the free consultation, the guy we got, Mike Ackerman, was very friendly and professional, explaining to us the company and how the products are manufactured with a higher quality than your average products. When we got our quote he was ok with stepping outside while we talked. He did use the old today only price trick to pressure us to buy. We told him that we werent interested in buying a regular bathtub install for the price he quoted us ($4,500), but that if he could offer one of the nice soaker tubs (just a deeper tub for baths, no jets) that we would go ahead and sign. He said that was no problem, and we went on our way. Mike even called up Seth to welcome us to the customer base, which was a nice touch.
One month later, they came out to take some final measurements before ordering the tub. The guy who showed up was the Cincinnati area manager, Aaron Powers. DO NOT TRUST THIS GUY. He told us there had been a mistake with the initial measuring and that we could not get the soaker tub anymore. He also told us that they would be damaging our tile when they replace the tub (something Ackerman didnt mention) and tacked on an additional $2,000 to replace the whole wall! When we said over and over again that we wanted to cancel because we couldnt afford the additional costs, Aaron Powers told us the only options we had were to replace the tub and have big holes where all the tile used to be, to pay to have the wall replaced, or to go to court to try to get the order cancelled. He also said that those who chose to go to court usually lose their case anyway. Being young and scared about the idea of court hassle (and not knowing how to fix our own tile), we ended up paying $2,000 more for simply a liner and a basic tile wall. He claimed that the cost would have really been around $10,000, and that the $7,000 price he gave us was a steal and he pressured us immensely to keep it a secret from family and neighbors, so they wouldnt be jealous of our special lower price.
2 weeks ago we were fed up with being scared into accepting a product we didnt want and couldnt afford, so we called the owner Seth and explained the situation. Unfortunately for us we had waited too long to call him and the product was in, so he said that we could not cancel. He offered us $500 off the price, and I was able to get him down another $250 but that was all. He also seemed puzzled that Aaron Powers had not given us the option to cancel when the product hadnt even been ordered at the time. He said that, when asking Aaron about the situation, he denied ever bringing up going to court. It was his word against mine and my husbands, of course. Im not sure if we had called him sooner if we would have been able to cancel, or if we would have been stuck with this either way. Well never know.
The install guy did not arrive until Noon. The subcontractor that showed up was clean, courteous, and said he only did work for improveit! and only did bathrooms. He offered to put down floor protection without me asking, which was a big deal to me. Although he arrived late, he got right to work.

UPDATE: 2.5 months have passed, and from daily use by two not so dirty people our tub is VERY dirty with buildup around the calling and on the lower sides. During his false sales pitch, Dave Ackerman claimed that the tub would only have to be scrubbed every 6-12 months but alas, that was yet another false claim. Also the caulk they used is starting to yellow already, very unsightly on a white tub w/white tile.

One of these guys came to my house and gave me a quote on some windows. They wanted $18,000 to do the windows in my home. The sales pitch was good, but high pressure. The guy would not leave my house until we signed a contract, very pushy. The contract had a 3 day cancellation policy. I cancelling and they gave me a hard time about cancelling. I would be very wary about actually hiring this company. They seem very shady. If you were older or not really knowledgable about home costs, you could get suckered into overpaying for their services. I did some web research and it looks like others are saying similar things.

ImproveIT conartists. Not the type of company I want working in my home. They pedel their products at home shows, box stores and even worse - door to door. Their sales people are pushy and downright criminal. The sales guy was willing to tell us outright lies, such as the bathtub will never need replaced and that they have worked for my next door neighbors. They almost sold my spouse on replacing our bathtub for... view more $10,000. Not the entire bathroom, just a tub. Their financing carries an APR of nearly 10% APR. DONT IMPROVEIT!!!!

I dont normally post online, but Improveit! is by far the worst contractor I have even worked with. They charged me $8500 for a bathtub replacement. You can find this tub for 10% of this cost at Lowes. Their financing was like 10% APR.

Do not use this company, shop around!

They suppress negative online content, so dig beyond the obvious astroturf postst.

ImproveIT will rip you off. Their prices are more than double what you should be paying. Shabby construction, using subcontractors. Contracts and financing (10% APR) are borderline robbery. They sell door-to-door and prey on the lonely
