We hired Mike and Totally Dependable to finish off a living space in our basement. Everything had to be done pretty much from scratch: insulation, drywall, flowing, ceiling, electrical, plumbing, you... name it. Mike made this whole process incredibly easy for us, and we now have a fantastic media room worthy of any renovatorís catalog. Mike had every step covered well ahead of when we even knew what needed to be done. He led us through all the questions that needed asking, he gave a ton of great suggestions, and he solved a lot of small problems that came up just because we hadnít anticipated certain questions being asked. Mike kept us way ahead of the game, not only wrangling all his contractors and subcontractors (who were all very professional and did perfect work), but also being instrumental in getting us hooked up with a design studio, who we had install bookshelves and display cases. We had no bad surprises at all, and the few problems that came up were easy to fix, and were taken care of quickly (and with due care). What a pleasure to work with someone with Mikeís integrity and professionalism! Weíre looking forward to hiring Totally Dependable again when it comes time to redo out kitchen.VIEW MORE »VIEW LESS »
I cannot say enough good things about this company! From the first time we met Mike Hyatt our project manager to all the employees and contractors that this company uses, we are so impressed.... Everyone was reliable, kept us constantly informed on the schedule, and provided a very detailed estimate of our project and stayed on budget! We love our new rooms in our basement and when we are ready to finish the rest of the basement we will definitely be calling Totally Dependable!VIEW MORE »VIEW LESS »

We had a basement remodel done in Oct.-Nov. It was a big job with a replacement of a beam. Mike, the GC, was always very accessible and did a great job of keeping us informed and keeping the work on track. They delivered by getting the job done by Thanksgiving and that was our goal.

Totally Dependable helped us with a major remodel of our kitchen and living room area. They were excellent. They communicated with us regularly, were right on schedule and budget, and most of all, they listened to our needs and completed a great remodel for us. The team was such a great help with keeping things clean and always immediately answered our questions. We love our new kitchen and family room! Thanks to all of the Totally Dependable team for an excellent remodel experience and a wonderful new space to call home!
Totally Dependable completely rebuilt a large master bath, adding windows and curved shower walls and renovated a living room entertainment area as well. The rooms are unique, beautiful, functional and in keeping with the character of our home. Mike provided a very detailed and complete scope of work and estimate and managed to it. Framing, electrical, plumbing, drywall, tile, cabinetry, finish work -- all were expertly executed. Mike and the team were easy to work with and clearly wanted us to be happy with all aspects of the work. Mike even adjusted the schedule and created some temporary solutions when we had guests. Totally Dependable is far and away the best contractor we've worked with. Mike really listens and responds with good suggestions and alternatives. His results are outstanding.
Totally Dependable Contracting was terrific on our kitchen and re-model of several other rooms. They communicated with me daily and let me know what to expect. They fixed every little detail and left a clean work area every day. I would use them again in a heartbeat.
Very professional as they worked during business hours at our office building. Top quality work, leaving area cleaned at the end of each day. Work was completed in a timely fashion. Would highly recommend to any one with small or large needs. Will definitely use again.
This is a follow up to my post on Feb. 9th. Three days after I wrote that review, our disposal switch broke. I called Mike and he came out the next morning (today)and replaced it immediately at his cost, staying true to the warranty. What is more impressive about this is that it was 100% a product defect, nothing to do with their work. Says a whole lot about their integrity and standing behind their work. Thanks guys.

After coming behind a lousy contractor and repairing disfunctional and incorrect work at my son's home a few years back, we of course called Totally Dependable for a quote to refurbish a family member's townhome which is now for sale. Mike and Crystal gave us their quote, were flexible when changes and additional work were needed. For the townhome, we needed additional lighting, general repairs, change out existing fixtures, and complete painting of all doors, trim, walls, and ceilings. The project was completed as planned and the townhome has an acceptable offer after only one week on the market. Thanks again for a job well done !
Small jobs are fair, but the big jobs are questionable. Would not rehire because when large exterior wood doors and window frames rotted, they would not fix them or repair them.

We are very sorry and honestly taken aback over this poor review. Ms. Harris we helped you with this renovation back in 2006 so its been 9 years ago. Unfortunately, we do not provide a warranty past 1-2 years (2 years being for structural components only). I spoke with your project manager and he notes that he advised you to use a more durable, low maintenance window/door product (PVC, etc) since you are located directly on a lake. You refused his advice as the composite material products were more costly and outside your budget. He told you at the time of installation (9 years ago) that these would be a maintenance problem and to be sure you sealed/painted/stained them often to help deter weathering. We have no idea what kind of maintenance you performed or did not perform on these units over the years and are unable to repair/replace them under warranty. If you would like to discuss replacement or repair we are happy to provide you with a quote.
WOWza!!! they made my old boring diningg room into a beautiful colorful entertaining room.. I Love it!! It was affordable too!

My wife and I were contacted by Mike Hyatt of Totally Dependable Contracting to discuss the remodel plans. He was prompt, on time and very informative for our first meeting. We discussed our remodel plans which included a total remodel of the kitchen, master bath redone, replacing siding for the entire house, exterior painting, hardwood flooring refinished, interior painting, plus a front porch. Mike was very knowledgeable and offered many ideas on the remodel. After a few more meetings we were presented with a very detailed list of the projects we wanted done. Each line item had a cost listed so we knew in advance what our "estimated" cost would be for the entire project. I am very impressed by Totally Reliable's work crews. Truett Scales was one of our primary project coordinators along with Mike. We couldn't have asked for a more helpful, professional and courteous person. It has been a great pleasure working with Mike and Truett . As of this writing the siding has been replaced, a new front porch added, exterior painting done, hardwood flooring put down in the second floor, master bathroom redone. Still to come are the cabinets for the kitchen and more hardwood flooring refinished. More updates to come. All done!! What great work. I would eagerly recommend them to anyone with remodeling needs. Mike and Truett have made the experience very pleasurable. Thanks guys for all your hard work and effort. The house looks great!!!
Great company to work with and great finished product! Always prompt responses. Reasonable prices and quality work.
We had a very good experience with Totally Dependable. With family coming in for Christmas and everyone here for the holidays, we wanted to increase our living space. Our two projects were to convert a 340 sq ft screened in porch into a family room and to bump out the dining room two feet to be able to seat 12 +. We had a firm deadline for completion. We worked principally with Mike Hyatt who was wonderful to work with. He was very professional, knowledgeable and customer oriented. In spite of unforeseen areas which could have delayed timely completion, the project was completed on time. He listened to all the visions we had for the areas and completed them exactly that way. Further, the quality of the work was excellent and the subcontractors and employees used for the work were both skilled and friendly. The project came in on time and, very importantly, on budget. They even moved all our new furniture into the family room, so all we had to do was hang some artwork and accessorize and the room was ready for the arrival of family. Another challenge they had was to match the existing black walnut flooring in the existing dining room to the new addition. You cannot tell where the old hardwood ended and the new began. As a final but important note Totally Dependable was very clean and neat with everything in order at the end of each work day. We would certainly both use Totally Dependable for future projects and highly recommend them to others.
TDCS was the GC for a major renovation of our kitchen (complete redesign), the family room, and powder room. I could not be more pleased with Don (owner) and his employees. Their foreman named "Stretch" is a perfectionist and treated the work as if it were his own house. I would definitely hire them again.

The most important part of any remodeling or major home repair job occurs long before any concrete is poured or boards are hammered. The most critical part of the job is hiring the right contractor.
