    We used this company to replace a shower valve in both of our bathrooms. On the first day the guy showed up took a look at things and told me that he did not know anything about it but would bring out a guy the next day that was an expert on it. They came out the following day and were here for 2 hours. I asked how I was to pay and as they walked out the door they told me I would be billed. Bill came in and it was for $261 quiet steep to fix 3 shower valves. I contacted the company and was told it was due to a helpers fee. After I informed them that I wasn't told about a helpers fee because had I been I would have went with a different company who could have sent one guy out. Not my fault the supposed professional didn't know what he was doing so had to bring out a second guy. The guy who didn't know what he was doing literally sat on the toilet the whole time so they could have sent out the guy who knew what he was doing. She said she would take off the price of the helpers fee and emailed me a modified detailed bill at my request. She then tried to charge me for 4.5 hours. They were at my house for 2 hours plus the 20 minutes the day before just to tell me that he didn't know how to fix it. I have cameras covering the inside and outside of my entire house. I pulled the clips with the time stamp of when they arrived and left and sent them to her. I also sent her a detailed bill that I would be paying since they could not do it themselves. It was $75 for the first hour and $35 for the second hour. Will add an additional $17.50 (half of $35) for the guy coming out the day before to tell me he didn't know what to do. I will also add in the $21.35 for the part bringing the total to $148.85. Not $261 or $218.85 like they tried to charge me for a lie. There rates are $75 for the first hour and $35 for every hour after plus parts. Besides if it took 2 professionals 4.5 hours to fix a shower valve then they need to hire better employees. Will not use them again nor recommend them again due to them trying to swindle us. Update: I finally got an email response and they are trying to tell me that the extra 2. 5 hours was from where the worker had to drive to sweetwater and back to get the part so they're saying that took 30 minutes to get there and 30 minutes to get back. They're then saying it took the guy another hour and a half to find the part once he arrived. When I asked for a quote I was told $75 for the first hour and $35 per additional hour plus the cost of parts. I was never informed of a "helpers fee" or that they added cost for travel and to find a part. I mean what kind of company does that? This is unprofessional at best. Will never recommend this joke of a company to anyone. They'll Milk you for every dollar they can get out of you.

    Can’t not say enough good things about Jim and his company ... they always go above and beyond! In a world full of people ready to take advantage of others, they are a breath of fresh air. They are Honest, dependable and trustworthy. They have restored my faith in contractors! Thank you for several jobs well done.

    Jim's team did an amazing job. The craftsmanship that his team has is first rate. He completed the huge remodeling project on time and within budget. Just won't take on any project unless he is the contractor. His whole operation employees and subcontractors are first rate.
