I am a disabled veteran who qualified for a bathroom renovation grant. Part of the requirement is to obtain 3 estimates. I contacted Blackstone R & H LLC and set up an appointment to get an estimate. The contractor came out and first thing I was asked was did I get the full amount? I replied yes, they obviously have worked with the VA before. Next question asked was if the renovation went over the grant amount how much would I be willing to pay? To wit I responded $2K. Long story short the estimate was exactly $2K over the grant amount. Speaking with the representative at the VA, I was told the contractor should not have asked me those questions. And the job should be able to be completed with the amount of the grant. I can not attest to their work because I chose not to utilize their services. All veterans and anyone else considering Blackstone R & H LLC beware. They are scam artist and will overcharge you if given the opportunity. Check this site or Angie's List to find a reputable contractor.
