Closet Designs and More

Posted on: 6/8/2014

Made Our House

We moved into a much smaller retirement house and worried about how to get 10 lbs into a 5 lb bag. Bill looked at what we had, asked sensible questions about what we used most, and then used laser measuring tools and software to construct a virtual closet of identical dimensions on his laptop. He then in the space of 30 minutes added custom cubby holes, shelves, hanging bars, drawers and a hamper to accommodate what we needed. We asked for a couple of slight modifications, put down a deposit and a couple of weeks later Jason and a helper installed the material in a few hours and vacuumed up afterwards. We are ecstatic with the results. From being able to only handle a fraction of one season's clothing we can now comfortable store all our clothing, shoes, hats, and the contents of a dresser that wouldn't fit in the bedroom. We chose this company based on the reviews here and we're happy to be able to add ours to the pile.

Knowledgeable, Thorough, Effective

Chris runs an owner-operated business, which gave me the confidence to trust the reviews on Kudzu. He has top-notich equipment--steam generated on his truck and conveyed to his application tools by hoses. He uses disposable covering on his shoes, has clever tools to secure the hoses, has fans to accelerate drying, and he moves lighter furniture to get to the carpet. We were delighted with Chris and with the results. He charged a little more than the one other outfit we called, but he uses the best equipment and green solvents, so that plus the fact we knew what individual would be doing the job made well worth not having to deal with a chain.

Stand Up Guys Junk Removal

Posted on: 3/25/2012

These Guys are Good

We had thirty years of accumulated "treasures" gathering dust and cobwebs in our basement, and we dreaded the inevitable chore of sorting through it all and disposing of what we'd never need again--which was most of it. We found Stand Up Guys on Kudzu, and they came to give us an estimate within 24 hours of our call. Their rep, Carson, was a neatly-dressed, articulate young man who clearly knew his business and who gave us a fair number. We decided to also ask them to remove all our ceiling tiles and carpeting in the finished section of the basement. An upright piano, an old cabinet sewing machine, and a balky treadmill also needed to go. They arrived on time, calling when they were on their way, and immediately went to work, sweeping up as they went. We were amazed by how efficient and steady their team was, carefully double checking with us on what we wanted to keep. A few hours later and we had a broom clean basement that was no longer a candidate for "Hoarders 30062". The business was founded by two guys while still in high school, and customers' reactions to their approach to their little side job encouraged them to make a full-time business of it. It's great to see that hard work, attention to detail, and genuine care for the customer can still make for a successful business. We unreservedly recommend these guys.

Lacey Custom Carpentry

A True Professional

We called Ira based on the reviews we read on Kudzu and we very much appreciate the thoughtful reviewers' opinions, all of which were confirmed by our experience. Ira is very professional yet friendly, and he was able to give us great tips on how best to remodel our master bathroom at a reasonable cost. He is flexible and knowledgeable, and uses specialty subcontractors wisely. At every point he was willing to spend the time we required in planning and materials selection, and his work was meticulous. It is a real pleasure to see his craftsmanship. We loved how the worksite was always clean and neat at the end of the day, and our new bathroom far exceeded our expectations.

Laura has been working on my hair for some 25 years, and I always look forward to my appointments with her. She is interesting, charming, and serious about making her clients look their best. She is always prompt, maintains a scrupulously clean station, and the clients who are leaving her as I arrive always look great.
