We used Sparkle Clean Carpet to clean the downstairs rug after we had a leak from the laundry room into the hall and living room. They were able to get the water up, but there'e still a residual smell they weren't able to get out.
My husband is all gung ho about upgrading our garage doors to a wooden finish rather than the traditional steel doors we currently have. He's very picky on his likes and dislikes, but Curry Brothers was able to provide us with a design even Mr. Picky liked. They were very pleasant on the phone and had no problem going over a brief description on what they had to offer when I was screening companies. Their representative was very professional and only showed my husband what he asked for. I was impressed they past the husband test.
After seeing the work done by Unique Cabinetry & Leaded Glassworks, I told my husband our kitchen needed to go in a whole new direction. To say their designs were gorgeous is an understatement. I had them do a workup on what my cabinets could look like and was absolutely delighted. They are true artisans whose work should be liked to artwork rather than cabinetry.
Smith's Welding gave me an estimate to do some of the framework for my gardening shed. I wanted to add some specialty items to the shed's outcropping and they were able to help me design and plan for it. They were even open to my suggestions for a piece of sculpture I've been trying to replicate for my husband. It didn't come out the way I wanted, but they were good sports about it.
We looked at the Finishing Company to redo our wooden doors in the back of the house. Their speciality is kitchen cabinets, but I was more interested in getting the back doors redone. They were able to give me a quote I could take to my husband; now all we have to do is find the time in our schedule to make it happen. They made us feel confident with their abilities and their price was in line with what we thought it would be.
Kitchen Direct has such an impressive portfolio, it's easy to see why they are rated so well with their customers. After my husband and I set aside the funds for our home remodel, we were almost set on Kitchen Direct for the work. My hesitation lies in the amount of time it's going to take for the kitchen to be done. The salesman at Kitchen Direct promised they would be done in 8 weeks, but after speaking to several of their references, the typical remodel takes between 10-16 weeks. I'm still on the fence with this and need more time to think about it.
When my husband and I were abroad, he fell in love with a metal piece of art that was unusual and unique. For our anniversary, I looked into getting that sculpture for him, but it was completely cost prohibitive. I found Aero-Cert Specialties, who are arc welders and contacted them about perhaps getting involved in making a replica. After meeting with them and going over the design, they were very honest that they had never done anything like what I showed them and were very hesitant about being able to do any such thing. The agreed to a test, which I was thrilled about. They are not artists in the sense of the sculpture I was looking for, but I thoroughly appreciated their time and willingness to think outside of the box for me.
I contacted the Sung Gardening Service to clear out a portion of the backyard for my new gardening shed. They gave me a quote that I thought was on the high side. When I questioned this, they made me feel like I had no right asking any questions. I thanked them for their quote and showed them out. When they realized I wasn't going to hire them, they asked me what the problem was! I told them I needed time to think about it. They called me three times afterwards to which I asked them to stop calling. I would avoid them.
Expert Locksmith was very nice to work with. We needed to have the safe in my husband's office rekeyed and were having a hard time finding a locksmith who was qualified for the job. After several phone calls, I came across the Experts. They were very responsive, friendly and didn't mind coming out to look at the safe at no charge before letting us know if they could do the job. They could and they did - very well. I appreciated that they didn't try to sell themselves for the job before even knowing what it entailed.
I've consulted with Design Rite in the past to get ideas on how to maximize my decorating budget. My husband and I are not fussy people, but we like elegance and style. Design Rite has been a source of ideas on how to accomplish this and has always given me sound advice on the best fabrics to pick.
