Home Improvement Testimonials
They were quick to respond, arrived as scheduled, were
courteous, and worked diligently.
The work looks very professional.
The work was completed in one day and our yard was left clean and neat.
Home Run removed inadequate, leaking and poorly hung 5" gutters and replaced with seamless 6" gutters, repaired rotten fascia board, and covered all trim and soffits with aluminum and vinyl. The installation is excellent and very professional. The entire process took only 5 days. The cost was $2,500 less than the other estimate.
Everything went as promised.
The crew did a great job. They showed up around 9AM each of the 4 days and worked late into the night. The total square footage is in excess of 4,900 sq ft.
Everything went well. The roof looks great. I had requested the work be performed during a two-week period. They were able to accommodate my request, starting on day one of the two-week period and completing the job in three days. I also needed some masonry repair on our brick front porch. One of the roofing guys did a great job in essentially rebuilding the porch.
I contacted Pat McIntyre at Home Run Improvement for estimates on installing a sliding glass patio door from our bedroom to a small elevated 4'x7' deck with steps leading down to a proposed hot tub area. This involved removing an existing window, creating an opening for the door and installing same. There is a 4' difference between the bedroom floor and ground level outside, so a small deck with steps down to ground level was desired.
Pat and the contractor who would do the majority of construction (Mike) came to our home. Also a gentleman who is an experienced home builder was in attendance to advise on any structural problems. After they gained specific knowledge on what I wanted and I learned of aspects I hadn't thought of, everybody was on the same page as to what needed to be done.
I received a detailed quote a few days later which I found to be in the range I had expected. After giving the green light on the project, Mike and JR (another crew member) arrived at the appointed time to begin putting a huge hole in the side of our home. About 10 hours later I had a sliding glass door securely in place. One AC receptacle that had to be moved was re-routed and mounted in our basement.
The next day was spent on deck and step construction. This included relocating my central air switch box on the outside and creating a junction box in the basement. The small deck adjoins an existing larger deck and was built in the same style as the larger deck. There is lattice work around the existing deck and this was installed for the smaller deck by HRI even though it was never discussed.
Day 3 involved finish work on the inside and new drywall everywhere on the affected wall. Outside was finished with aluminum trim and the vinyl siding was repaired. A torrential rain hit us late in the day and it was noticed that an area of the bedroom ceiling was getting damp. This area had been covered by a thatch tiki-hut panel before the project started and wasn't exposed. Mike offered to crawl into our attic (no small task) and found the source of the leak and put a drip pan up there.
My wife and I had known for some time that our roof was in need of replacement but you know how those things go. Always something more important to do. I guess Mike called Pat the next day and told him my roof was leaking. After reassuring Pat that this had nothing to do with the recent construction, he asked if I wanted a quote on a new roof, which is one of their specialties.
Three days later we agreed on a price. Pat and 2 others came by to make sure the new shingles would match ones on an existing enclosed porch that would not be re-roofed. After about a week of rain delays, the roofing crew started on my house. By quitting time the house was done.. They returned the following day to do the garage. Both turned out beautiful. The new door, deck and steps are everything we had hoped for and more.
Pat was present for some amount of time every day HRI was working here. He reflected the same attention to customer satisfaction that everyone on his team showed. Everyone involved in the project exhibited professionalism. Any issues were quickly resolved to my satisfaction.
I've had a lot of improvements made to my home over the past five years. That involved a lot of contractors and I can say that the best experience thus far has been with Home Run Improvement..
Home Run Improvement really did an excellent job of transforming our vision into reality. Our old deck was not safe with stairs that were hazardous and we had a huge amount of wasted space underneath that was just weeds and uneven rocks. HRI created a sturdy deck and a screened in porch which is a joy to spend time in.
Home Run was constantly in touch with us and kept us informed every step of the way. After removing the dangerous stairs, they completed a restructure of the upper deck and built a new landing with stairs descending into the yard. Then they poured a 19X15 foot concrete porch area below the deck. Once the concrete was set, construction of the aluminum screened in porch section was completed which encompasses a majority of the area underneath the deck. Adding some lattice around the lower portion of the screened in area really added some extra character at a low cost.
The Home Run Improvement team never tried to sell us on additional upgrades or items we did not need, but did discuss possible options to assist us in creating a great space. We now have a great space our family will enjoy for years to come.
Home Run Improvement has one goal. And that is to do whatever it takes to please the customer. They are responsive, easy to work with, very competitive in pricing, and provide excellent quality work. We enjoyed very much working with Kevin and Pat McIntyre and highly recommend them for home improvement needs!!
It started as just a chimney flashing replacement. Turned out all the wood below the shingles was rotten, and everything had to be replaced. Kevin and his crew were professional, courteous, and hard working. When the project was finished, they did a very thorough clean up too.
