I felt it was necessary to add a factual review versus ones these people's friends have posted on their behalf or that they've posted themselves. I know this because when they came to "do an estimate" they chatted with my husband who had recently started his own business. It was a completely unrelated field but they were happy to share "tips."Back to their actual work. These are just 2 folks without any training or useful experience collecting an hourly rate. After hearing about them on a neighborhood website, we asked them to come give an estimate on a bathroom remodel. My first warning should have been that they couldn't even make it to an estimate in a timely matter. Once they were here, they made blatant racist jokes about other handymen in the neighborhood. Even though we didn't enjoy their hate speech, they seemed like they might've been using a horrible tactic in order break the ice. With that, we gave them the benefit of doubt, changed topics and things seemed better.Boy were we wrong! We set a day and time for them to come work. We were quoted for one day or labor @ $400. For 2 people and the work that needed to be completed, that seemed fair. I reached out to both the couple of days before our appointment but never heard back. Here's where I goofed again. I figured they were so busy and had family that it might've just been a tough week. My husband and I both took off work for the day to facilitate the project. After several texts, I finally got an acknowledgment that they were alive and coming to work the next morning. The day of the job comes and we've got everything up and out by 7:30am. No one called on their end and no one showed up for hours. Despite calls, texts and emails, we got no reply until almost 2:00pm. At that point they texted to tell me they'd have to reschedule. When they came the next week, I was able to stay home again but my husband had to work. Despite multiple attempts to hammer out the details, they still didn't show until lunch time. Even then, only the wife showed. She might've gotten a 4-foot-square-area done...might! By then end of they day my husband and I switched responsibilities. I ran out to get some errands done and he stayed home with our "handyman" because her husband was going to be there anytime. He eventually showed up with 2 other random smoke stacks but did no work. The kicker is that when my husband went to pay them, she charged us the 2 person 8-hours-each rate. This mama bear was not happy when she got home!After another series of texts, they agreed to both come and work that Saturday to do the job they bid that we paid them to complete. They never showed Saturday. Our calls were ignored and possibly blocked. Weeks later, they sent another bill saying we hadn't paid enough for the day "they worked." This is absolutely a scam and other neighbors in the Heights are quickly catching on. It's getting more obvious that they are separately answering those asking for recommendations by giving the other one's name. We can also see that the only people praising them live with doors of them. Also, the small area she worked on was trash and still ended up having to be redone. Since, we've written, texted, emailed, called, posted, etc. and they've never bothered to check in or discuss the issues.Please save yourself from this ridiculous headache and malicious behavior.
Thank you very much for the excellent service provided by you and the The Handyman Depot staff at our new home in Houston. The work done by your staff on the 3 bathrooms and other special projects was well coordinated and done on time and on budget. We particularly appreciated your personal at…

Pretty much the same experience as others. They promise to do x, y and z but don't show up, don't return calls and don't apologize or explain. Too many other contractors in Houston to waste time on people like this.
I've had many bad experiences in the past with other contractors causing damage, leaving huge messes, or disappearing without finishing the job. This makes you worry about having repairs or remodels done... but I would have no hesitation having Swinging Hammer do any work on my house. Bobby and …

Tell-Projects was wonderful. I worked closely with Zach, with office supervision and communication from Ellie. They helped us remodel our entire second floor living in just under 3 weeks, start to finish! That included demolishing the kitchen and two walls, installing new floors, counters, countertops (quartz), and installing our handpicked appliances. They were very efficient, speedy, and thorough. Throughout the experience, Zach was very communicative, open, and honest. We partnered closely to create a floor plan and the various design choices that go into it. My fiance and I both travel for work each week but we had full trust of Zach and his team to be in the house working. He would send us pictures of the progress each day and was very accessible if we had any questions by phone. We'd highly, highly recommend Tell-Projects for future remodeling projects, no matter how big or small. Price was very reasonable considering the value, and they put no pressure on you to do more than you absolutely need. And of course, there are always little touch-ups here and there afterward to get everything perfect, but Zach and his team were more than willing to go the extra mile to make sure that we felt happy.You can see pictures of our remodeled kitchen here: https://robinsonphotography47.pixieset.com/wilsonstreetkitchen/Safe to say that we are thrilled!
Following a kitchen fire, I called Kals, who has worked with me on many jobs throughout the years both in my home and my office. No job is too small or too big. Al handled all the details for a complete kitchen restoration due to fire and smoke damage: replaced drywall, painted ceilings and walls, replaced tile floor, sealed parquet floors (they are beautiful), and repaired smoke damage throughout the house. I am a very indecisive person, or so my husband says, but they are still always so patient with me and ALL the change orders. They are considerate of our needs, and responsive to questions and I always ask a thousand questions before deciding on something!!! The actual restoration of the kitchen shows Al's technical skill as well as artistic skill given that our 1950s home seems not to have a straight line in it. My family and I lived in our house during the restoration, and Al made it easy to do so, and actually required that someone often be present during the remodel so that normal issues that arise can be resolved quickly. I recommend them unreservedly. They are such an honest and down to earth team that love what they do. They are professional, fair priced, and worked hard to make the final product perfect! My husband and I are always happy with their work!
I'd like to commend your employee Al. He just completed my son's bathroom remodel and I needed to contact you to let you know how truly satisfied I am at the outcome. The bathroom needed a new tub, tub walls, sink, toilet and new flooring. We had some delays due to weather and my son's inability to stick to a color choice for the walls. Even though Al had to repaint the walls 3 times because my son kept changing his mind on the color, he respectfully changed the colors to my son's liking. Yes, we paid for the color changes but it was more than fair and the end result was brilliant and well worth it. Al skillfully completed each phase of the remodel. I was particularly happy with his attention to detail. If making talent craftsmen like Al available to your customers is an indication of the service that I can expect in the future, you can be sure that I'll recommend your company to friends and colleagues. When it is time for my other bathroom to be remodeled, I will be calling KALs!
I used KAL's services recently for a full house remodel and was very very pleased. After dealing with contractors who either didn't show up or were extremely lazy or just flat out crazy, I called KAL's. They exceeded my expectations on service,craftsmanship, know-how, and $$$ price. KAL'S offered up great suggestions & did a bit more than what I was expecting. They completed the job in a really professional polished manner.I will definitely use them again. Dealing with unreasonable contractors in the past made me angry and wasted a bunch of my time and $. I plan on just calling KAL'S for ANY future projects, big & small, and would recommend them to anyone! THANK YOU< KAL'S! CHEERS!
I normally don’t write reviews online but I thought it was the least I could do for Kal’s. I had them come out and paint my house before I sold it. I was impressed on the whole process they did. Before even painting they literally washed the house, scrapped off all the paint chips, replaced all the wood rot, primmered, sealed, and finally hand rolled the paint. REALLY QUALITY WORK! I did not expect them to do all of that. The last company I used did a quick pressure wash then used a spray gun to paint; the difference was night and day. I will definitely call these guys again and would recommend them to anyone.
Kip and Al, I wanted to thank you so much for all the hard work your team did on our home renovation! Our house looks amazing and now looks like a brand new house. Something our family can now call home!! KALS is an excellent company and I would highly recommend you to ANYONE. Plus the workman sent to do my remodels and repairs were very competent and professional. The job was finished fully to my satisfaction and my family and I could not be any more grateful. We look forward to working with you again for all our future projects!Best regards,The Perez Family
I am extremely satisfied with KALS Home Repair. They removed my old porch and built a bigger better one. It looks perfect and better than I expected for the money I paid. My wife and I were so impressed with how knowledgeable, professional, and friendly they were. They were honest, hard working, prompt, and we never had to worry if they were gonna show up or not. They always arrived when they said they would. This was my first time using them and I have no complaints. I would definitely recommend them and use them again. THANK YOU KALS!
I have been using Ronnie's lawn service for almost two years. He provides the best service I have ever experienced with my lawn maintenance. Ronnie is extremely flexible with his schedule to work best with mine as an on-call as needed service. I would call him every 2 or 3 weeks depending on the rate of growth and he would promptly and surely get it done with a very affordable and competitive rate. I will never use another service as long as Ronnie is around!
KALS was extremely knowledgeable, efficient, reasonable, professional, answered all of our questions and concerns, discovered the issues involved with our various home repair projects and fixed them right up. They called the next week for a follow-up to make sure we were satisfied and everything was completed to our satisfaction! which, IT WAS! If you want your spouse to be happy, I strongly recommend KALS for all your home repair needs.
