Worst EVER, 6/16/2013

Did a house remodel and had Dan do the kitchen, bathroom and deck. This guy is horrible. He ruined my new cabinets by putting nail holes in them, none of my tile is straight, the handrail from the... deck is already loose and the list goes on. He was very expensive and acted like he knew what he was talking about. The guy who was helping was a car mechanic, and had zero ability to do anything. These projects took months to complete and they still aren't done and Dan will not come out and fix anything!

no call, no show, 12/05/2012

I had a sunday morning appointment for an estimate but he never showed. I called a few hours after he was scheduled to show and left my number, just in case he lost my information, but he never... called back. I changed my schedule around to be able to be home for a sunday morning appointment because this was the only time he had available. If he couldn't make it, he could have at least had the courtesy to call and cancel. It's too bad because, in addition to my flooring job, I have a lot of future work and I'm hoping to develop a good relationship with a reliable handyman.

lies lies and lies...this customer added lots of more jobs to do and I did them all to his satisfaction. He called me 6 months later and wanted me to do more jobs for him and I would not do any more work for him because he broke our contract and paid me less than the estimate I gave him. I have an A+ rating at BBB. this customers rating at BBB is a C-.... farm fresh foods is a rip off. please dont buy meat from the back of trucks.

Great work!

Dan was fast to respond, professional, and he gave good advice on what work needed to be done on my rental property. The results turned out great. I plan on calling him again for future repairs.

Awesome Job!

Dan & John did a great job on repairing & re-roofing an area of my roof where the wood had extensive water damage. They were quick, thorough, & very friendly. I would definitely use them again, & recommend Dan to family & friends.

Professional !!!

We had Dan install recessed lights in our kitchen, as well as replace some door frames. He was so professional and easy to work with. The lights and doorways look great. We will definitely use him again.

Good Work!

Dan and his crew came to my parents house to replace some fascia board on a 1970's single story house in the South Bay. From the get go, he came on time for the estimate, as well as today when he and his crew did the replacement. Dan said it would take approx 4-5 hours to do the job, and he was spot-on! It took exactly that. He was able to get the product I wanted, and overall does good work. Although an angle was a little off, and they did not staple back a small amount of cable wire that they unstapled to replace a small piece of fascia by my chimney, overall the job came out good. Hey, nobody's perfect, and these were just a couple minor details. I just put some caulking on the joint that was a little funky to blend it in, and re-stapled back the 4' section of cable. His price was OK, and I would recommend him. Thanks Dan and Crew!

Excellent Experience

Dan and Juan are consummate professionals. They were punctual, efficient and went out of ther way to take of things that were on the list. I very highly recommend this outfit. Dan is definitely ingenious and suggested a fix for my shower door with a simple fix which would have otherwise costed several hundred dollars.

"Awesome"

We hired Dan to remodel a bathroom. He did a great job and his price was below other quotes. He was very nice and we did not mind having him in and out of the house. Dan worked with any issues that arose in a timely and professional manner. After completing the first bathroom remodel, we had Dan do our guest bathroom as well. We are very pleased with his work and would highly recommend him!

Professional :)

After going through so many contractors that no-showed, didn't call us back, or preformed lackluster work. Dan was right on the money! No job has been too small for prompt and friendly service. He was very professional. We'd be lost, and literally falling apart, without his great work!

Be Aware!!!!!

We had Dan texture our living room ceiling. The job was just okay. Nothing to brag about. He really messed up on one particular area but we had other things to worry about so we didnt make a fuss. A year later, we wanted to get a quote to have him texture ceilings in other parts of the house. He wanted to charge us more than triple of what he was going to charge us originally. Basically, one year ago, he was going to charge us $600 to texture all the ceilings in the house. One year later, he wanted to charge us $2500 just to texture 3 bedroom ceilings!!!!! OUTRAGEOUS!!!! He said the majority of the cost was from the prep. work. So, when we asked how much he would take off if we moved all the furniture out of the rooms ourselves, he said he would take off $500. What a joke! On top of this, when he showed up to give us the quote, he asked who textured our living room ceiling. We said "you did!". He then said "I did that?!" and admitted "it looked like sh**". However, he did not offer to fix it for free (even if we didnt want to hire him for this 2nd job). He would only fix his crappy work if we would pay him $2500 to do the main job. We will NEVER hire him again for any work whatsoever. We ended up finding another painter who charged us $500 for the whole job and he did a beautiful job!! Plus, the charge of $500 included all the prep work. We didnt life a finger!! Watch out for this Dan- he charges absurd prices and does a really crappy job!!!!

sorry you didn't like my estimate if it was to high I can understand why I didn't get the job. If the first job was bad I dont think you would of called me for more work. Cracks in ceilings happen all the time for different reasons. Please check my other reviews and pictures

Happy Customer!

We had a leaky kitchen faucet and wanted to replace it. Dan gave a reasonable flat rate over the phone as well as an estimate of how long it would take. Very punctual as he arrived exactly at the time he scheduled. This was a welcome relief (having been used to working with others who can only promise a 2 or 4 hour window). He even finished within the time he estimated. Very professional and down to earth. We look forward to having him do other work in the future and would recommend him to others.

Quality service

My husband and I recently hired Dan to replace all the windows in our house and install two new doors. He was on time everyday and did an outstanding job with every installation. Dan is very professional and detail-oriented. I would recommend him to anyone needing home repair.

AWESOME Work!

I needed a bunch of small things done to the house I just bought and contacted 3 or 4 different people for estimates - Dan was the only one who called and followed up. LOTS of gold stars for that! Working with him and Beto and Chris was an absolute joy - they were on time, on price, and had my honey-do list all wrapped up in just a few days, including removing metal awnings, installing kitchen flooring, and installing a new heater (ahhhhh, glorious heat!) Theyd knock out one task after another and always clean up (more gold stars!) Dan is the vortex of a tornado that gets jobs done and goes above and beyond - he even hung my curtain rods AND curtains AND arranged the pleats so theyd hang correctly! He made sure he was at the house to install new door locks before the movers came, so Id be secure and safe on my first night in the new place. WAY helpful were the suggestions and recommendations hed give as he spent more time in the house, things that I would have never seen or thought of. The best part was the rapport we laughed and joked and I felt like my brother was working on my house, rather than someone I met just a few days prior. I greatly value the trust that I have in Dan hes an honest professional that Ill use again and recommend to others. He made my house a home!

Amazing, Amazing, Amazing results

Dan showed up on time for my estimate, gave me advice how to save money, and worked around my schedule to get the job done. I had a bathroom remodeled, and it looks absolutely wonderful. I was soooo tired of my 1970's bathroom. Dan also tiled my kitchen floor to match the bathroom. He had to do some electric work and plumbing also. He definitely knows what he's doing. What impressed me is that him and his helper did all the work! NO SUBCONTRACTORS! He was very personable and I loved his positive attitude. Thanks for making my house look beautiful. I would highly recommend him to fix anything.
