Comments: I hired Joe to do a kitchen remodel plus half bath. Communication was very good - Joe always called me back or texted me right away. No surprises on the final costs and work quality was as expected. No reservations to recommend Joe and his team!

Comments: I found Joe (and Chris) through home advisor when we had a water leak in our wall. They were always at the house when they said they would be and did a great job fixing our wall. They even went above and beyond and looked at some water damage in our attic. They contacted a roofer and brought him with them to the house to help us determine next steps. They were very personable, honest and fair. I highly recommend them!

Comments: When I contacted Joe Shefer about renovating my condo, I wasn't sure what to expect. Oh, and of course I needed it done ASAP :) I hadn't been through this process before, wasn't familiar with the area (I moved from about an hour away), and obviously we had not met. Needless to say, every step of the way was a pleasant surprise. Joe was able to meet me three days after initial contact, at my place, and do a thorough walk through. He gave me plenty of his time (on a Saturday no less), which I really appreciated. Expectations and budget were level-set at that point. I gave him a list of what I was looking for, and that I'd need him to run the show due to the distance and my busy work schedule. His attention to detail on the project was always confidence-inspiring. I gave him some flexibility on finishes, hardware details, etc. Despite the distance, it all went very well and was completed ahead of schedule! He made great choices on finishes along the way. He has a great eye for whatâ ll look good and you can tell he loves his work. Joe always kept in touch, proactively-so nothing was ever left hanging. On the flip side, any call or text was answered promptly. Another important detail is that Joe was very respectful of both the timeline and budget and kept the expectations for both realistic from the get-go. He is true to being rooted in the community, as he states on his website. It was so great to have someone local and familiar with the area, since I was coming in cold. All-in-all, it was a painless experience for something that most people think will be a nightmare. Let Joe run your project and you won't be let down.

Comments: I had an impossible deadline and Joe and his crew of Ryan and Steve with help from Bob made it. The work was excellent and Joe was helpful, strategic (and cheerful) in solving issues and construction detail. I am a retired project manager and have done hundreds of projects and can say that Joe is truly absolutely in the top two of contractors I have worked with (and I can't even think of the other one).

Review Date: 09/25/2015 | Author: Gary L.

Comments: He quoted a fair price for the job (hanging a storm door) but because he only had to install it, he charged me far less. He charged me an hourly rate rather than a flat. He is a finish carpenter by trade and I will hire him to complete a bathroom and install wood flooring in the future.
