We own a historic building in the French Quarter of New Orleans. We have been through a number of general contractors who either inflate bills or inflate jobs to unimaginable expense and unnecessary complexity. But then we found a gem of a general contractor, John Stevens, and since, we can rest easy. We had a pipe that burst in a January freeze on the third floor. The internal flood ruined the ceiling, walls and floors of rooms in all three levels. Because of inaccessibility, it was difficult to find a reputable and fair contractor. Our plumber referred John to us. We were in despair. John came onto the scene, gave us a fair bid, quickly began the huge project, and returned the old house to better than its pre-flood state, its former grandeur. He worked to coordinate all our subs. We use his services now as our sole contractor. We whole-heartedly recommend John and his contractor service. We can rest easy knowing he is keeping our property in a proper state since the massive restoration.
After my post-Katrina nightmares, all contractors are suspect to me, so any company I deal with have to check out A+ with the BBB. I chose three companies to get estimates all with A+ rating. Two estimates were super inflated for a 5’X7’ bathroom. I was very pleased that John’s Contractor Service worked within my price range and it was a big plus that his price included the plumber and electrician fees. His team was very professional, courteous, and did what they came to do in the time frame he gave me. I’ve gotten so many complements on my tiny bathroom; it’s a true Masterpiece, I Love it. I only wish I’d taken before pics to post with my review, it was embarrassing and had to be gutted and rebuilt from the ceiling down. I definitely recommend John’s Contractor Service.
I hired Capital Improvement to do the windows on my home. I was replacing old aluminum windows that were just ugly and not energy efficient. I replaced the aluminum windows with Capital's vinyl Ultimate 2000 windows that withstand winds up to 155 mph. I love my new windows and I am already saving on my entergy bill. I always compare my entergy bill with my next door neighbor and she used to always be a little lower than me but now that I have replaced my windows I now beat her every month by approximately $30.00. I was so happy with the crews to all of the people that I had contact with that I am now hiring them to replace the siding,overhangs and gutters on my home. This is really a great company. Very courteous, very helpful, just genuinely nice people all around.
