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.
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!!!

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.

Totally Dependable just completed a major house addition & renovation for us. From the design to the finished product, the professionalism and top-notch quality of everything they did more than exceeded our expectations. We could not be happier with the results of this project. We love our new beautiful home and would highly recommend this company to anyone who is looking for high end quality work and a trustworthy contractor.

We contracted with TDCS to remodel two bathrooms and spruce up the third. The process was extremely effective. Our bathrooms look wonderful and we were able to stay within budget. It took a little longer than originally planned, but well within acceptable limits. We would strongly recommend the contractor to anyone planning a major remodel.

Mike and his team are wonderful! I felt very comfortable having them work on my home with me there or away. Mike and his crew at Totally Dependable were hired to correct horrible work done by a previous contractor and I could not be happier with the results from Totally Dependable! Mike and the guys were always on time and kept me well informed of how the project was coming along. Their pricing was reasonable for the work they were doing and the flawless outcome was worth every penny! I will definitely have them be the contractor for any future home projects at my home and I would absolutely recommend them to anyone!

Totally Dependable is exactly what they say. They arrive on time, they do great work, they give great advice if you ask, and if you are not satisfied with something they will always make it right. Mike Hyatt is a joy to work with, he's extremely honest and truthful and we would totally recommend him as a contractor.

We just recently had our house's basement remodeled with engineered hardwood floors, installed cabinets and countertops, replaced the old ceiling, repaired a tilted wall and installed new tiles and faucets in the bathroom. The basement looks really good and we receive so many compliments from our friends and family. Mike and his crews are all very professional and always showed up to work on time. The recommended list of vendors for material selections are of really high quality. We will be using Totally Dependable for our future remodeling projects.

I have used Totally Dependable for two projects, one home remodeling and one for general home repairs. The quality of their workmanship was outstanding, their availability and responsiveness was outstanding, they provided helpful advice on ways to minimize cost while still achieving an effective result, and all of their workers were very professional and courteous. I will definitely continue to work with them in the future.

We did business with Don before Totally Dependable. Many projects: take out wall in garage; two decks; two arbors; two exterior doors; one exterior window; and misc. painting. Not the cheapest, but great value. They work hard to please.
