We were looking for a local contractor and there was one with great references on Angie’s List, a member of the Better Business Bureau, and close to home. The Improvement Company was a pleasure to work with. They were diligent, respectful, and did great work in our kitchen. They refaced my cabinets and put in a new beadboard ceiling, with crown moldings, and they took down the ugly old wallpaper and replaced the flooring. I’m a little embarrassed at the before picture, but just look at the finished kitchen! It’s amazing. We will have them replace our windows and put in hardwood floors, next. Thanks, Improvement Company!

They've done a roof for me, some kitchen work, and several other rebuild projects... Great folks!

Does excellent work! Would highly recommend!

I couldn't be more pleased with Dan and his crew of Jake and Paul, plus others as needed. They were neat, confining dirt and dust from the rest of the house. They even cleaned up everything before leaving each night. They used my ideas and made them better by pointing me to experts to help me pick out coordinating tile and bathroom fixtures and showing me how things could be better. They used the existing too large shower stall and left a newly tiled shower with glass doors and added a linen closet. What a bonus (Jake's idea.) They replaced the bathtub, retiled the floor, raised the existing cabinetry, added granite tops with ceramic sinks, installed new plumbing and faucets, raised the tv to needed height, hid the wiring inside the walls and added new electrical outlets where needed and new vent fans in the shower and water closet. The room is beautiful and the work masterful. These are great people who truly wanted me to be happy. I tried to keep my interference to a minimum but if there was some small thing I found displeasing , maybe once, they were happy to redo something that other people would never notice. These are people with great hearts and it shows in their attitudes and attention to detail. Highly recommended for bathrooms and any other project you might need.

Services were rendered promptly and professionally. All employees from the owner to each specialist were reliable and trustworthy. Jon was an excellent project manager.

Job went very well, stayed on schedule. Very responsive to customer wishes. Trades were professional and confident in their work. Kept a very clean work site. I am extremely pleased with the project results and would use this team again

Overall, we are extremely happy with the result. There were a few issues along the way with sub-contractors, but Dan had all of them corrected in very short order. The length of the job/timing of services was adequate. Dan was professional throughout the project. I would definitely recommend The Improvement Company to others.

This was the best company that I have found on Angie's List to date--especially for the Angie Deal I got. Daniel came out on the date/time agreed and went over and above in the 6 hours that he was contracted for. I had to find a couple extra jobs for him to fill in the time. All projects he completed were done promptly and in the highest quality that I could have asked for. Rotten wood from rain runoff on the exterior and interior was replaced, dryer vent was secured under the house, porcelain floor tile replaced in kitchen, door bell tested for voltage, etc... Absolutely impressed with the professionalism and quality of the repairs. I will definitely call The Improvement Co. back for more work (but will definitely ask for Daniel)!

Overall, the experience was good. Jim, the handyman, really know his stuff and proved to be an extremely honest and straightforward professional. Also, the Improvement Company offers pretty fair prices. They are responsive and are easy to deal with as well.

It went very well. In the area of professionalism and timeline of the project, they exceeded expectations. We got two estimates and though they were about $1000 higher, we chose them because they were closer and seemed to have more resources. We are glad we did. the contract was signed on 11/25 and all but the finishing touches were completed 12/9, When we mentioned to our children on Thanksgiving that everything would be done by Christmas, they laughed. And at that time, we hadn't even contemplated the extra project we asked them to do! After they demolished the old deck and walkway, in consultation and agreement with my husband, they made some design changes to the deck that boosted the lower level a little more above the ground for better drainage. They did not replace the railing to the walkway, because it wasn't really needed, but I think I like it better without the railing. My only quibble is the post that they installed in support of the new overhang looks a little sketchy and almost impermanent. Brian and Dan's communication with us was stellar. They always kept us in the loop. Even though we made the last payment before the gutters had been re-installed, and the final overhang post put in they never left us hanging. All we have left to do is paint, but we cannot do that until spring.

Clint responded to my request for a quote quickly and less than 24 hours later the entire project was complete. Gutters look great and they were able to use my existing downspouts to save money and look better. Highly recommend.

I had a small repair project on my downspouts and Clint came out gave me a very reasonable estimate and returned to make the repairs in just a couple of days. Great price and my gutters look new!

Very professional, prompt with all communication from bid to finish. Dan, Brian and Jon did a great job. Jon is an excellent project leader and carpenter.

We are very happy with our deck. Dan and his team listened to what we wanted, provided suggestions and ideas and delivered exactly what we asked them to build in a timely manner. We will use them on future projects and confidently recommend them.

We had a 19'x18' sun-room added to our house. The people that they had do the work did excellent work. Dan, Travis, and Ryan were the ones we dealt with the most and they were great, they had great customer service and very willing to please us. If we ever need anything else done, we will definitely call The Improvement Company.

We called for a consult on an addition to our home and for a new roof and other improvements. Dan the owner was very prompt in arriving for this appointment ..to the minute...and did not appear rushed at all. He was extremely knowledgeable and helpful with the information we needed and was very personable. We felt like we had known him for years and can’t wait to get started on our projects. We researched and did our homework and my Husband and I are very pleased with this company and feel sure we will be very happy with the work. I have had a home built while still single and had improvements done on my Mothers home after her death before selling her home so am fully aware of this process. You need to have a great relationship with your contractor and we feel confident we certainly have that. We highly recommend this company. We are very pleased with the quality of the addition done on our home by Dan and his workers - The Improvement Company. Communication was excellent and we were updated daily on what was to be done next. Dan was onsite often checking the work and available at all times for questions. They knew we had 2 foster children and needed another bedroom so worked us in to a very busy schedule and helped get the addition done very quickly. All of the workers were friendly, on time, very reliable and knowledgeable. We will certainly have them come back to do some other projects including more hardwood throughout and a partial bathroom renovation. We highly recommend this company!!!

The Improvement Company was amazing to work with when we decided to renovate our bathroom. All of the staff were a pleasure to work with, especially our project leader Travis. I couldn't have asked for better customer service and assistance in getting the job done! Highly recommend The Improvement Company for your renovation needs.

These guys are awesome! They do quality work, and are efficient with communication and all different types of skills at work. I would recommend him highly for renovations, and additions.

I've had the privilege of working with Dan and his team at Improvement Co on several projects. They are always a pleasure to work with, and I get a lot of positive feedback from clients they have worked with. Their installers are excellent, and everyone I've worked with is extremely honest and trustworthy. I'd highly recommend Improvement Co for any home renovation project.

David Galassie

Dan and company are first-rate pros. They are thoroughly professional and easy to deal with. Travis worked on sanding and staining our deck (which, by the way, The Improvement Company constructed in 2016) and was an absolute dream to work with. He kept me informed with phone calls and texts, despite several weather-related delays and returned day after day until the work was completed to my satisfaction. Travis' work was neat, precise and he cleaned up after himself. He is a great representative for the company. His efforts far outweighed what I would have been capable of if I had chosen to do the work myself. I would definitely choose The Improvement Company again to do projects for me. You owe it to yourself to check them out.

We had wanted to replace windows. After comparing several companies, we chose the Improvement Company. We are very happy with their work! Honest, professional. Lowest quote but high quality work. Thank you, Mr. Skelly and the team!

Jason D.

Dan and his entire team were great throughout our master bathroom remodel and kitchen refresh. No project of this scale is going to be without its challenges, but Dan and Travis were always responsive and professional. They take pride in their work and ensure you are happy with the end result.

The work was good, they were very efficient and they got the job done all in one day.

The project is completed and it went well. Mr. Dan and his crew was very professional and completed the installation in a timely manner. We’re truly enjoying our porch. I will definitely use them again if I need the service they perform.

Cliff S.

Did everything they said they would do. Problem with sprinkler system requiring removal of some deck boards to cap water line. Specifically asked about this during construction and was assured it done: but wasn't. This was the only indiscretion. Great quality work and done on budget. Courteous and friendly crews.

Services were rendered promptly and professionally. All employees from the owner to each specialist were reliable and trustworthy. Jon was an excellent project manager.

Job went very well, stayed on schedule. Very responsive to customer wishes. Trades were professional and confident in their work. Kept a very clean work site. I am extremely pleased with the project results and would use this team again.

Very prompt, professional, high-quality work. Very pleased with staff and service. Clint was great to work with, as were the other workers.

Excellent and professional service and experienced installers.

It went as scheduled and on time. Very satisfied! We made an appointment for a quote; they called and confirmed the day before and came on time. We hired them and will hire again for future work.

Absolutely amazing! The promptness and professionalism was great. They are a Christian company who operated on the same principles.

Went great, had the work done in a timely manner, gave me options to take care of my problem.

In general it was a positive experience. Although there was some delays. Once we got started there was days they were at other jobs and not show up on some days. Overall they did a good job.

They did an excellent job. They were on time and did what they were supposed to do. They were professional.

All the work was done to our satisfaction. There was one issue on the bannisters which they followed up on and corrected in a timely fashion. We would use them again.

They were fast and very clean. I really like that they cleaned up after themselves. Chris was very nice and kept me completely informed.

Clint responded to my request for a quote quickly and less than 24 hours later the entire project was complete. Gutters look great and they were able to use my existing downspouts to save money and look better. Highly recommend.

Punctual, professional service, good quality work

These home improvements were scheduled over the course of eleven months. Some tasks took considerably longer than the projected time frame. Some delays were weather- related. Others were related to my schedule. And some were simply that all houses are different and mine had some idiosyncrasies that needed workarounds. I have been very pleased with the quality of the final product in every case. Any issue that I found along the way, during construction or months after, was addressed immediately and at no additional cost to me.

Everything went really well. everyone was professional and courteous. The job looks great!

Had the list ready - ranking order. Went from one task to the other, no breaks. Finished in time.

He showed up on time, and after a quick review of the things to do, got right to work. Everything came out just fine. He was able to repair a window we had previously thought to be unrepairable which was an extra bonus. I highly recommend him

We had a great experience and would recommend them to others who need work done around the house. Daniel called within three days after we bought the handyman services - six hours for $349. We set up an appointment for two weeks later. He called the night before and came over on time the next day. He installed 17 mixed mosaic 12x12 tiles. That sounds easy but he had to cut the tiles into multiple sizes to fit around our kitchen. Once he installed the tiles, he left them overnight and then came back this morning to do the grout. He had to mix the grout, which he did outside so that he wouldn't make our house messy. I thought that was great!. While he was grouting, he was so quiet that I had to check a couple of times to see if he'd stepped outside. He was polite, courteous, friendly and did a great job. We would definitely hire him again. Thanks for the great work!!

Contractor came out and took all measurement. Built the cabinets in his shop. Came out a week or so later and installed them. One part of the cabinets did not fit because of the angle of my ceiling. He took it back to make adjustments. Said he would be back out after the doors he order for the bench seat came in to finish the cabinet and too install the bench seat doors. It took about two to three weeks to get the final job completed. He did an outstanding job. was very pleased overall. just wished it could have been completed with in a week. I would definitely use this contractor again.Overall it took 5 to 6 weeks to complete.

This was the best company that I have found on Angie's List to date--especially for the Angie Deal I got. Daniel came out on the date/time agreed and went over and above in the 6 hours that he was contracted for. I had to find a couple extra jobs for him to fill in the time. All projects he completed were done promptly and in the highest quality that I could have asked for. Rotten wood from rain runoff on the exterior and interior was replaced, dryer vent was secured under the house, porcelain floor tile replaced in kitchen, door bell tested for voltage, etc... Absolutely impressed with the professionalism and quality of the repairs. I will definitely call The Improvement Co. back for more work (but will definitely ask for Daniel)!

Overall, the experience was good. Jim, the handyman, really know his stuff and proved to be an extremely honest and straightforward professional. Also, the Improvement Company offers pretty fair prices. They are responsive and are easy to deal with as well.

They are an excellent company. The people that they have working for them call and tell me when they are coming. If they are going to be late, they call and tell me that. They show up when they are going to show up and they do good work. I think the price was fair.

All went very well. Obviously, I would not have had a second job done with the company. Contacts were made, dates conveniently set, work was meticulously done, and the prices were very reasonable.

They did an excellent job overall, as well as on the many minor projects that comprised the overall renovation. I would highly recommend them to others. We couldn't be happier with the results and the quality of the workmanship. They went out of their way to help minimize the inconveniences of construction interruptions and accommodated our schedule. We felt comfortable with everyone who came into our home and their professionalism. They proved to be extremely trustworthy in protecting our personal possessions from damage and reliable in scheduling the work. Their experience and wise counsel helped direct us to better decision making; and when they made an error, they owned it and corrected it - none of the typical "contractor BS" from these guys, just the honest truth and fair treatment. And, more importantly, they treated every job, from the biggest to the smallest with equal importance. They completed punch lists and honored their commitments. As impressed as we were with the professionalism of the workers and the reliability of the promises made, we were amazed at the accomplishments of the craftsmen. Yes. CRAFTSMEN. The carpenters are magicians; the electrician has 30+ years' experience and teaches electrical work at Mid-land's tech. The roofer - amazing (and fast). The gutter team - amazing (and fast). It is about as good a group of fine tradesmen as you'll find in the midlands. And, for as much as they know how to do . . . they listen to what you want them to do, and work to make you happy. I was recommended to Dan and the Improvement Company quite by a happy accident. When I was getting a quote to replace a broken window I asked if the vendor knew of any good general contractors she could recommend. Her response was: "YES! I know just the guy!" She went on to tell how her home contractor went out of business, and that Dan had come in to rescue the project and save the day. I echo that same sentiment when I tell you that Dan and his team came to the rescue for our old house and transformed our home. We are so proud to share the results with neighbors and friends because the quality of the workmanship is so excellent! In conclusion, I would like to mention the fairness of the pricing. A lot of general contractors are disengaged, juggling sub-contractors on a schedule and collecting as much as a 40% markup on the work. Dan is different. He is hands on and engaged, answers his phone or email messages and is responsive. And, his prices are significantly less than others when comparing prices. So, for a fair price you get treated with respect and you get a quality job. What more could you want. Imagine my joy when tallying up the cost on the myriad of projects in our renovation and discovering my savings from the original bids. And, the billing mechanics are also fair. I never had an error that had to be argued. It was always exactly what the estimate had projected. That's what you get when you're dealing with someone who is fair. We are THRILLED and know you will be too! Give these guys a call!

I contacted Mr.Dan Osterhaus of The Improvement Company in July 2014. He was very cordial, friendly and professional. I asked if he could look at a large room that was very warm in summer and cold in winter. He came out the next day and said he would send out his a/c man to check it out. The young man came out, measured everything (again he was professional, friendly and cordial). Mr. Osterhaus called me back with a quote and we arranged a time for him to come out and do the work. The room is so-o-o much cooler and I am sure it will be warmer in the winter time. Quality work!! Cost - $778.36 At the beginning of August 2014, I contacted Mr. Osterhaus again asking for a cat door to be put into the wall that leads out to the screen porch. He came over and looked at it and sent the right person for the job. I received a quote before he did any work and was very pleased with the addition of the cat door. Another great job!! Cost - $417.39. This price included taking out a temporary cat door from the slider door and reattaching the original lock. At the end of August 2014, I called Mr. Osterhaus again to install a ceiling fan, kitchen light, 2 bathroom vanity lights and a side garage door light. All of this was done in a timely manner and very professionally as well. So that makes 3 jobs well done. At this time I have not received the invoice, but he estimated around $300.00 I will continue to call him as he is trustworthy, efficient and the price has always been right. He seems to put the customer first. Carol Geiger

Everything went very well. Very pleased.

Dan Osterhaus was a pleasure to work with. He was always punctual or called prior to the appointment time if he was going to be unavoidably delayed. The crew who did the work was wonderful and also a pleasure to work with. I very much appreciated that during the entire 6 days they were working on my home, I never heard a fowl word. They answered all of my questions and went above and beyond on a couple of my concerns. I contacted two other people to get a quote on the work I needed done. Neither of the other two kept their appointments and one didn't ever call to let me know why he didn't show and did not return my call inquiring what happened. The second one did call me a week after the original appointment to let me know he hadn't forgotten about me. Now, five weeks later and he still hasn't shown up. I would without question recommend The Improvement Company and have done so with several friends who are considering vinyl siding. I will also use The Improvement Company if I have any other projects around my home that need doing.

The Improvement Company went above and beyond in honoring a special deal for 6 hours handyman service for $249, even though it was advertised at the wrong price. Very professional and reliable company with integrity! A different person also came and gave me a quote for an outside repair, although I haven't made that repair yet. I intend to use the Improvement Company when I'm ready to that repair as well. Definitely recommend this company.

They came out and guide me what I consider a fair price and extremely professional. Their fee was a little bit more, it was $8800 but the deal was if we decided they came out, they were gonna replace all the four decking, railings and posts. It was a much more job. It also included pressure washing and painting. They broke it down where the decking, posts, railings and lattice was gonna be for $6600. They are professional and responsive.

The called me back the next day and came the next day and gave me an estimate. They setup a date, but I had to change it and I did so without any difficulty. We agreed on a day and they can . The whole process took 2hrs. They were very and pleasant and skillful in their task. I am VERY please. I am planning on calling the company again to schedule other projects, as they are a multi-talented group of skilled people.

I purchased the deal for 6 hours of handyman service for 250 bucks. Its a good deal for me as I don't have a lot of time to complete these things myself due to business travel. During the process of inquiring about the type of work that could be done, the provider was very responsive. After purchasing the deal, I heard back right away with a scheduled date and the handyman, Lance, showed up on time (early even) and completed all the work with little direction needed. He even did some minor plumbing repairs with some extra parts he had on hand. I definitely recommend the Improvement Company and Lance particularly and will be using them again.

It was great. Lance is a true professional. He is honest and reliable and knows how to do anything and everything!

They came out as promised even though I was not able to meet with them, and measured the roof, and gave me a fair price, for installing a metal roof in place of the shingle roof. We are planning to meet with "The Improvement Co.next week to make a deposit

My experience was very good. He showed up on time and worked hard. He did a great job replacing rotted wood around windows, garage doors and porch railings. I was very pleased with the service.

it went absolutely perfectly.Lance was polite, efficient and thorough.

Great experience with this company. They were prompt in getting someone out to give an estimate and the work began when scheduled. The men doing the job were meticulous, courteous, and reliable. They did a few small things extra that they pointed out needed to be done, and I expected to be charged more, but the price didn't change. I have already told them we will need them for renovations in a few months!

Clint Knight represented their company in a very professional manner in all our contacts with him. He and his crew were always prompt, courteous and answered any questions we had about their work and the repairs they made to the previous contractor's work. I believe their price was very fair and their workmanship exceptional. In fact, they installed gutters on our daughter's house and did an excellent job. We highly recommend this company and Clint and his crew. We hope to use them again for future projects.

My old house had a deteriorating back door, but it was an odd size. I purchased a special order door to fit. It came raw wood and unbored. I needed to have it installed. I emailed Dan to ask about an estimate. He called almost immediately. I emailed photos of the door. He gave me an estimate over the phone -- and he said that because of a glitch in their schedule, they could be at my house in 90 minutes to do what was expected to be a half day job. I jumped at the chance to have the job done so soon. They arrived about 12:30 pm and left at 5:30 pm. When they left, the door had been installed, and it had a working dead bolt. But because of a balky drill, they had been unable to bore for the door knob. Because they had just worked me into their existing schedule, they weren't able to return until the next week to bore and install the door knob. They showed up bright and early the next week to do that work, but the priming and painting still had to be done. Then the arctic weather hit, rain, snow, etc. The placement of the door leaves it no protection from weather. They did come before the bulk of the precip and staple a plastic drop cloth frame to frame over the door. That protected the raw wood, but left me without a functional door. A combination of almost continuous weather and their pre-existing schedule left me with that tarped door for about 10 days. But the weather cleared, the painter arrived to prime one day and paint the next. All in all, a nicely done job. I don't think it would have taken so long if the weather had not conspired against us. But I learned the down side of getting squeezed into an existing schedule. If something unforeseen happens, you don't have the priority of a regularly scheduled job. Still, all the workers were competent and friendly and apologetic of the delays. I can't hold the weather against them. I plan to use this company again -- but I will make sure to get on the schedule!

We needed a couple of things done around the house and decided to purchase the "Handyman for a day" coupon, which entitled us to 6 hours of work for a discounted fee. We had a fairly new attic staircase put in a few years ago, but the 'feet' weren't installed because the installer didn't have a metal cutting blade at the time. So the handyman from The Improvement Company tackled that first. We have small children in the house, so he was mindful of small shards of aluminum getting into our hallway carpeting and made sure there was an abundance of drop-cloth down on the floor before he started. The work was quick, because he had the ladder cut to the proper length, the feet installed and the dropcloths pulled up in less than 30 minutes.Next was a much bigger project, which was to have him cut and install treated framing and lattice under our deck. We'd recently rehabbed sections of the deck and added on to it in one section, but didn't include underpinning as part of that job. So when the deck expansion was completed it was fully exposed underneath. We had already purchased the materials necessary to get most of the work done, so the handyman was able to begin immediately. Using some new treated lumber left over from the expansion, as well as some usable scraps of treated wood left over from the prior deck demo, he was able to frame out all of the areas underneath the deck. He ran out of lattice before the last two sections could be covered, but that was a shortcoming on my part for not properly estimating the amount that would be needed. The areas that he was able to complete look great! He had taken into account the slope of the land around the deck as he was measuring out where the panels would go, and custom cut the lattice to match the particular slope for each opening. He ran out of lattice with about 10 minutes to spare on the 6 hour window, and he used that time to clean up after himself. When he left, we had well-installed and good-looking lattice underpinning along most of our deck and there wasn't any scrap wood or litter left scattered anywhere in our back yard. We highly recommend this company to anyone who needs any sort of work done around the house.

A near perfect construction job with professional contracting management and excellent subcontractors. Flexible regarding changes.

It was good. The guy that came out was good. He’s honest and went to work right away. He was even a little bit early. He just worked straight through and worked really hard. I did have to pay for the material. The door might have been a couple hundred dollars and the columns were around $90.

Lance installed a new over-the-oven microwave for me. He was excessively careful and meticulous. He cleaned as he worked, and he was very patient. I would highly recommend this company. It did not take him the full six hours, so he called (and I called) to get credit for the additional time for later work. I am very pleased and would not hesitate to use the company again.

Excellent work. Damaged a few shingles on front of home but repared the area; no questions asked. All communications went well. Eager to please.

Job was completed in two phases. Initial install was done on bench seat and bookshelves. The top of the bookshelves were not done to builders satisfaction or fit properly. Had to take back to business and redo. Took 4 to 5 more weeks before job was completed. Also had to wait on doors to be installed on window seat. Builder ordered them from a door maker and it took them 4 to 5 weeks to get them in. After everything came in and was reworked the unit looks great. Jake did an outstanding job from start to finish. As jake was putting together the window seat and book shelves, the person he brought with him, was working building in the exteior wall and repairing the sheetrock. Everything was done to my satisfaction and they cleaned up the job site. I will have Jake back out to build more book shelves. Overall, I would give this job an A!

Lance Marshall did a good job. He's a very nice kind gentleman with professional knowledge and skills. I'm glad to do business with your company, and I will definitely ask Lance to help in the future.

They did an outstanding job in a very timely and professional manner.

Great! Lance completed my list with time to spare. He knew what he was doing--even corrected problems left by former workmen. Installed new ceiling fan, installed new shower head, replaced light switches and electrical outlets; repaired light fixture which had never worked; installed new washer hoses; installed new light fixture in kitchen; installed new motion-sensitive flood light outside; replaced two outside faucet handles; kitchen cabinets needed repairs--fixed properly in no time. Electrical breaker box - replaced two blank spaces left by Gene Love company (would not meet code). Had good advice for future work. Will definitely call them again and have already passed their phone number to a friend. [Of course I supplied all of the equipment...new fan, new light fixture, new hoses, but I was so happy to get all those "little jobs" done that can drive you crazy! ] Great special, Angie's List!!!

Needed estimate on some work. Came on time. Very brief visit, but fair estimate proprosed.

Thought I was getting one handyman for eight hours; instead, got one handyman and his helper for four hours. I was satisfied for the most part, but there were times when the helper stood around without anything to do. For instance, when the handyman was working on the caulking job, his helper stood around waiting to be told what to do. I suggested that perhaps the helper could go start the caulk work in another bathroom, but was told he could not do that because he was there to assist him and besides they only had one caulk gun. Also, a little word of advice if you plan to hire a handyman to assemble and install something (in my case a shower curtain rod and wall mount with tv), take items out of the box and pre-assemble them as much as you are able before the handyman arrives. I say this because the men had to spend time reading and re-reading instructions on how to assemble and install the items, which was not time well spent, particularly when I could have done that part myself. It is best to prioritize your projects because inevitably they won't have enough time to complete everything on your list in the amount of time you have them. Again, I was satisfied with their work and would hire this company again, but would make sure on the front end what I was paying for (e.g., 1 handyman for 8 hours vs. 2 handymen for 4 hours). They were courteous and the did a great job cleaning up after themselves.

It was a time consuming job we have tall ceilings in our bedrooms, but all were installed correctly and we have not had any issues with operation of them at all.

We have used this company several times and are extremely pleased.

They worked out good. They were the cheapest.

He showed up on the day promised and cleaned the gutters. I would have liked for him to let me know he was here, and finished the job. I did not know it was complete until I actually looked at the gutters. But it was done well.

The first task was installing the ceiling fan. Originaly I had tried to do the job myself, so the job of cutting a hole in the ceiling was already done. I had misplaced the switch that came with the fan and did'nt relieze that that it required a four wire electrical cord, He quickly recognized the problem and solved it. No only that, but did'nt charge me extra for either the wire or switch inwhich he purchased!! He did a great job fixing the back door which would'nt close. He sanded the high spots and reseated the support screws and now it works fine.

The owner of The Improvement Co,, Dan, replyed quickly to our request for an estimate to replace our cracked vinyl trim. Dan came out within a few days of contacting me, was very professional, and provided a fair estimate to have the work completed. To our surprise, the work was then completed by his crew a few days later. The crew members were extremely knowledgeable and effecient. While replacing our cracked vinyl trim, the crew discovered that we had an entire section of vinyl siding on our home that had not been installed correctly by the original contractor and was too short. This was potentially allowing water damage for our home. I was able to speak to Dan for another estimate within a few days and get a second quote to have the section of siding replaced. Again, the quote was quite reasonable and the work was completed a few days later. The crew did amazing work and the siding looks fantastic. If we need services completed on our home in the future, this will be the first company I call for an estimate.

I will call on this company again if needed in the future.

It all went very well. The price was reasonable and these are very nice people.

Outstanding company. Brian was a professional and great GF to work with. The companies and individuals attention to detail and commitment to quality is top shelf. They were a pleasure to interface with from job plan, to start, and finish. Brian was accommodating and fair regarding changes and change orders. It is great to have a GC you can trust and count on to deliver the scope with quality and professionalism.

The initial consultation was thorough and I was provided options for the repairs I needed for damaged hardiplank siding. I was given a quote promptly. They completed the job very quickly and the workmen were very professional and respectful. The price was much less than the other quote I received. I am very thrilled to have found a company that did great work for a reasonable price. I highly recommend them.

The Improvement Company not only repaired the areas that I pointed out but they also went around the entire house and repaired areas that I did not notice needed repair. I would highly recommend this company to anyone needing home repairs.

Very pleased. Nice work. Very reasonable. Completely in a timely manner

I called The Improvement Company for a quote for some handyman services that I did not have the time or resources to complete on my own. An appointment was setup on the following day with Dan who came out to look over the house. He was there right on time and walked the entire house making a list and offering suggestions as we went. He understood my situation completely and was very kind and knowledgeable. I appreciated the fact that he wasn't trying to upsell me or exaggerate what needed to be done. He compiled a list, gave a reasonable quote, and (much to my surprise) was able to start on the work that afternoon! His employee worked quickly and efficiently to knock out a list that had been hanging over my head for years. He returned the next day to finish up the job and left the site cleaner than he found it. I was very pleased with the work performed and had complete confidence in Dan and his organization. It is clear that he has a high standard of honesty and integrity which I have found to be rare when hiring any type of contractor. He stuck to his word and did exactly what he said he would on time and on budget. I really appreciated this and I will be calling them again if/when the need arises.

Worker showed up on time and performed quality work.

Needed some siding replaced after a tree damaged it. Called for estimate, they came out the next day to perform the estimate. Took about 15 minutes, received estimate via email later in the week. Called back to schedule the work and they requested that I send the request as a reply to the email, which I did. They had some availability the next week, but I had other work happening at that time, so I had to delay. We were able to schedule the work for about 2 weeks later. The crew (2 guys) showed up on time and worked hard, but didn't bring a tall enough ladder, so were only able to complete the lower half of the house the first day. They came back on time the second day with the tall ladder and finished the work very quickly. Left without asking for payment. Brian (the estimate guy) called a couple of days later asking if he could come by and pick up the payment, and verified at that time that I was happy with the work.

They arrived with a crew of 5 at 8:30am with every thing need to complete the job, pruned back a large camellia over growing roof (at no extra charge), removed old roofing, installed new roofing, performed excellent cleanup, and departed at 1:00pm. An extremely professional operation.

Very Well. The man who did it gave me a good estimate, I accepted. The work was done two days later. Well done. I am happy with it.

Dan, the owner, is very cooperative and very responsive. We had house guests while the work was in progress, and at our request Dan stopped work for two days while they were here. All employees were extremely courteous, considerate, and willing to get everything right. We had no difficulty living in the house while the work was being done or leaving the workmen alone in the house if we needed to go somewhere.

Clint responded to my initial phone call and came to my home the next day and gave a detailed estimate. When I called to have the work scheduled, his crew was able to come on the day I requested. They completed the work in less than a day and cleaned up after they were finished. They also repaired several missing anchors that fasten the exterior shutters at no cost. Very impressed with the quality, cost, and duration of the project. I am having them come back to replace gutters previously installed by another company.

I had some quotes and found them to be the cheapest. They did a pretty good job. They did my roofing last year so I had them do my windows this year. I have fairly large windows. I like their selling style. Bryan Kelley came out and was very helpful. The installer came out and was telling me how to replace the windows. I think they did a really good job and I was impressed.

I was very pleased with the work done on my house. Brian came out and quoted the work. He was more than willing to answer any questions that I had (even if I chose another company). I am very pleased with the workmanship. The only negative things I can say are very minor. They were a little slow in completing the work. By that I mean, we had several different crews doing different jobs and it took about 3 weeks from start to finish. We were not in a hurry (I told them that) and it wasn't a problem for us. The clean up job was not immaculate. They did a very good job of cleaning up, but I found a piece or two. All in all, I am very pleased with the jobs and would definitely hire them again.

Teh provided an estimate and met with me again to talk about some specific details i wanted for out\r down spout locations. The gutters they installed look great. they actually look like a piece of trim instead of gutters. They placed the down spouts where i wanted on one side and i am waiting on them to return to correct the location of the other down spout in the front of my house. I would have given them an "A" on responsiveness but i've made two calls to have the guys return with out a return call. Otherwise, Clint was great to work with and the finished product looks great.

The estimate was $7585 for the job. They were polite, on time and good. The price didn’t impress me much, but everything that was written down about the job was good. I couldn’t afford that price. They didn’t itemize the estimate, so that I could see what I could afford and what not.

Brian Skelly came by and gave us the initial estimate. He was very courteous and professional. We liked him immediately. He returned a second time with shingle samples but there was no pressure to choose a higher quality shingle (even though I did since the price difference was minimal). We signed the agreement and awaited the workers. They arrived on time and did a great job. My small (very small) complaint is that I found over a hundred roofing nails in my grass and along the driveway. The ones in the grass weren't so bad but the ones in the driveway could have caused serious problems to our vehicles. Nonetheless, I would definitely use them again. It should be noted that price is often times the highest consideration examined. I am very pleased to say that their price beat several competitors by $400 or more and I received a quality product (30 year shingles) with quality workmanship during the installation process.

Brian Skelly was great to work with. His price estimate easily beat the competition hands down. I admit that I was a bit skeptical at first that I would be getting quality parts and workmanship but I was pleasantly surprised. The installers were great and managed to work around where the power line attached to the house. My only small complaint was that I called to have them move one downspout (actually, to have it angled in a different direction). It took them at least two weeks to return to do it. I'll admit, cost was my main consideration. However, for the cost, I received the same seamless gutters as the competitors plus I saved 20%. I would DEFINITELY recommend using them.

Installation went as agreed. Had a slight issue with clean up which was immediately remedied.

I sent an email with photos of the damaged areas and asked for an estimate. The same morning Dan Osterhaus received the email while he was in our area and called to inspect the damage. He came by that day and called me back with the estimate of $335 on Friday and said he could probably work us in the following week, but he would call Monday or Tuesday to let me know exactly when. He called early Monday morning with an unexpected opening and he and his crew arrived promptly and got right to work. They all were professionals and very friendly. Dan is a gentleman and a family man who listens patiently to the customer. I was very pleased with how the job was finished when he said it would, even after I asked for "one more little thing" that I thought of at the last minute. Everything went smoothly and they cleaned up before they left. This is a top-notch outfit and I am planning to call on them for some gutter work later. I was so excited to have found them, thanks to Angie's List. We had needed most of these repairs for a couple of years but everyone I contacted didn't want to bother with such a minor job. They all wanted only big jobs, like putting siding on a whole house, etc. These folks don't mind the small jobs, but they are trained and equipped for the big ones, too. AAA rating from me.

They were professional and punctual. I couldn't have asked for better service.

The gentleman that came out for an estimate was very pleasant and helpful. He was able to give suggestions to save money on repairs and I felt like he had a lifetime of knowledge to do things the right way the first time. I look forward to starting on my list.

Their work was great, and they put top of the line seamless gutters and leaf gaurd on our home for one of the best prices. They also suggested a few better ideas than what we originally wanted for no upcharge. Top notch, would recommend them again.

They did a great job. The person I dealt with was right on top of things when it came to giving me an estimate. They came out and did the work. The price was exactly what they said it would be. They also did a few extra things for me as well that they did not charge me for. They are very professional.

Excellent experience. Honest folks who stand by their work. Brian Skelly (sales manager) showed up on time, listened to my needs, made suggestions (not to sell me more, but of things I didn't need - such as gutters in certain areas!), and gave me an estimate based on drawings he made and measurements. I knew they had a good reputation so agreed then and there. We set a date, the crew showed up on time, were courteous, did excellent work, and left everything spotless when they left. Dana (hope I spelled it correctly) and his sons should be commended for the excellent craftsmanship with siding and gutter work! I am overall very pleased. It is possible that I could have found a cheaper company, but I have been that route before and I believe you get what you pay for! I hope to use them in the future for other projects.

The Improvement Co. came to quote the work exactly when they said they would. The work was done when promised and the work was expertly done.

This was a wonderful experience overall. They were very prompt and polite. We were contacted soon after the services were performed to confirm our satisfaction, and we were so pleased with this company. I would recommend them to anyone at any time.

Quality job...reasonable cost...professional and responsive. Highly recommend.

OUTSTANDING customer service. Dan ensured I was completely satisfied before paying. Excellent work. Fair with cost. Very professional and kind. I HIGHLY recommend this company.

The work went fine. They were dependable. I was pleased with them. They did some work originally in the house, so they have good knowledge about the house, and it is fairly a new house. The price was very competitive.

Nothing but good things to say. The expierience was good from the initial estimate through completion. Work was performed professionally and the professionals took pride in their work.

We had a dormer with siding that had rotted out that we had tried for years to get replaced (too small a job for many contractors). We also had damaged wood around numerous windows, garage, and front door, apparently from not being properly sealed to the stucco when the house was built. The porch leaked because the drainage system off the roof was improperly built. The Improvement Company gave us a quick estimate, breaking down the cost of the various repairs. They answered our questions. Everything went smoothly except that the damage to the front door was more extensive than they had thought, so repair there involved removing the door entirely and drove cost somewhat over the estimate. All work was painted, and they even painted windows on the front of the house that they hadn't repaired so that everything would look similar. They were courteous and helpful throughout the process. We are very pleased with the repairs and would use the company again.

It was good and they did a great job. They showed up when then said they were going to be there. They did the job on time and they cleaned up themselves. They finished the job well and they followed up after finishing their work. This was the second time they have worked for me. He did a wall siding twelve years ago.

They did an excellent job. The man came with two estimates and two samples of the gutters. We decided to go with the more expensive one because they seemed better. He explained everything to us. They weren't that terribly much more but they were worth it. Whenever we told them to come to the house, they were there on time and this time it was a different crew. I guess they have an estimator and then they have a crew that comes out to do the job. They were just as polite as they could be and did the work in one day. They just did a wonderful job. They cleaned up after themselves. We've couldn't have asked for anybody better. It's all working well. The man who came to give us the estimate was just nice as he could be. I surely would call them if I needed anything done on our house. I've always had good luck on Angie's list.

Brian Skelly came out and gave me a quote. Before this I called two other top companies from Angieslist, but Brian gave me a quote for the roof that was $2900 cheaper than the other ones. I called 4 of the top roofing companies on Angieslist. He took a little longer than the other guys, but that's because he broke the quote down, so I could choose different options. With 30 Year Architectural shingles, I got a quote for 5015 bucks. I was shocked and asked him why it was so cheap. He explained it doesn't really cost that much to make a roof and they already earn a good amount from $5015. As a business salesperson myself, I could tell he was genuine and really wanted to help, so I was sold. I then asked him for a quote for gutters. He looked at my house and because it's on a hill, he said I really needed gutters on the back, but gutters on the front weren't urgent. Talk about honesty. He quoted me $465 for gutters in the back plus $200 optional screens. Rotted wood: Brian said if they found rotted wood, they wouldn't charge me unless it was a massive amount, it would come out to be $1.75 per linear foot. They found a good amount, but did not charge me. Wow! I told him I urgently needed them to come out because my home insurance required me to change the roof in 30 days. He told me that he would get their roofers out, the following Monday 7:30-8:00. And might I add, he's the only company that said they wouldn't require me to pay until they finished the job and I was happy? Monday came: They came at 8:15, but I didn't really care. They quickly got started. I stayed at the house because I had an electrician there the same day inside the house, so I could tell what was going on the house outside. The guys were courteous. The next day, they came out for a partial half day because it was fore casted to rain. That same day a carpenter came out to repair a siding that was rotting. I even talked to Chris, the boss of the roofing crew and he was always telling me anything they found. The roof was finished in about 2 days as promised, but a delay due to an unforeseen rain; which was out of their hands anyways. The gutter guys came and did the gutter; wonderful job! I still want to get gutters on the front of my house, after seeing their work. So I will definitely call them again. The fact that they came out, gave me an honest quote, answered all my questions, were patient, were not prideful or arrogant, did the job as promised, I will use them again. I am really thankful I found the Improvement Co thru angielist. A recommendation is to always get as many quotes as you can. If I had not called these guys, I would've paid $2900-3000 more.

The crew was very punctual and courteous and I was very pleased with the experience.

The experience was excellent. They came in a little under their quote for the roof. They showed my husband the wood damage under some of the shingles. They left the shingle selection at our house for us to look at over the weekend prior to doing the job and answered are ask questions about the different shingle types. I received two quotes from the top two companies on Angie's List. The other company was much higher by $3,000. My husband would definitely recommend them to family and friends.

From the initial meeting to get estimate to the date of final completion of work, we were impressed with the professionalism of all we worked with and the quality of work. The ensured we were 100% satisfied before asking for payment. Very positive experience. We highly recommend The Improvement Co for roof replacement.

Brian was very professional and gave me a quote on price quickly. The guys were there when they said they would be and did a great job. They cleaned up when they were done and walked around after they cleaned up looking for anything they might have missed. The carpenter showed up a few days later and told me what he was going to do and came back with materials when he said he would and replaced all the bad siding, facia boards, and soffit areas. They took the time to do the job right and pointed out any problems they encountered while doing the job. This company is going to be on the top of my list for future jobs!

Job went very well. They worked overtime and finished the job in two days. They came out the third day to make sure all debris was picked up. The workers were courteous and seemed sensitive to the fact that we had bad experiences in the past with roofers. They checked back in a couple of days to make sure we were happy with they job. They recommended we get our chimney cap replaced and we get covers for our gutters to keep the leaves out.

We do a lot of research before we choose someone to do work for us. They were excellent, and the company itself was very knowledgeable. They had plenty of workers and they worked fast. They did a good job - we would recommend them to others. I would rate them highly and would use them again.

Received several bids on the roof, Brian's was by far the best price. Service was excellent, Crew was professional, courteous, called me to inform me of hidden rot they had found and had me inspect it before they continued the work. Brian gave me a very good quote on a replacement skylight and explained why it was better to go with glass than keep the acrylic skylight (which would have needed replacing in the near future). i was given many color choices for the shingles, and received all the information I needed to claim the skylight for the energy tax credit. Excellent service, roof looks great. Excellent clean up job after the roofers left.

Called and scheduled estimate. They arrived exactly when they said they would. Estimate was very competitive to others I had received. I didn't have a big budget for this project and they came in way under my budget. Gutters look great--the quality was above what I was expecting and they were able to match the gutter color to the trim color exactly. All downspouts were included, as well as louvered covers. Attitude of the installers was awesome, especially considering one was attacked by hornets. Also, the day they were scheduled to come and start the job was rained out; it also rained for two days after. I was scheduled to go out of town for the next week, so they made a special trip on Saturday so I wouldn't have to wait any longer for the installation. They were in and out within a few hours and left no mess. One issue that arose was that the covers weren't available at the time of installation; but since I wanted the gutters installed fast, they went ahead and installed them. They came back a week later with the covers and offered to clean out any debris that might have collected.

Lance came to my home to see exactly what I needed to have done before he gave me a quote. He itemized each item and listed any additional materials required and the cost. When he came out today he installed two bathroom faucets that I had already purchased and leveled and re-installed my dishwasher that was not installed properly by an appliance company. Both jobs required him to repair or replace improper connections, and he added sub-flooring under the dishwasher where the original contractor had taken a short cut. He also cut down a 6' tall trunk of a holly tree at ground level and put it on the curb for me, cut into short lengths for pick up. I had already cut off the branches. Lance worked for about 4 hours, including the short time he spent getting the connector that he needed. (He came prepared with the materials he needed except for what he discovered when he pulled the dishwater out from under the counter.) Lance takes pride in his work and doesn't leave until the job is done right. This is the third time that I have called on him for similar work, including some carpentry. If you need someone who will do a good job and is honest and fair, call Lance at The Improvement Company.
