Very sloppy work. Have to keep an eye on him and his son. Like to take shortcuts, did not know how to cut stairs (for my deck). I had to help him and supply table saw to get the job done efficiently. He brought a ready made stair stringer from an old stair, probably from another job,but did not know, you have to measure and calculate the rise and run based on the height and distance of the job. I went along with his work and had to make the stringer he brought work by digging out a foot of dirt in the ground so it would work, we adapted the earth to fit his stringer, really he should have cut a stringer, by calculating the rise in run, he did not know that. A real carpenter learns to cut stairs before he can pass a carpentry course.
Had to get a journeyman electrician to check his work. He could not figure out why a two way switch he wired in a hall was not working in sequence with the second switch. The journeyman electrician removed the faceplate of one switch and immediately saw the wiring was wrong. He corrected the wiring and the switch worked the way it was supposed to.
In another electrical job, Calvin suggested I run an underground conduit from the house and have a plugin on the fence post, I was digging up the ground and laying stones for a patio; since the ground was dug up now was the time to do it. Sounded like a good idea , material not to expensive, lets do it,. Calvin told me all the material to buy and I did, and Calvin wired it and set it up. after getting the permit for the work after the job, the city sent a Journeyman Electrician to inspect the job to make sure it was up to code. It failed miserably, Calvin used wrong gage of wire , he used wrong outside receptacle's, he installed the underground conduit against code. It has to be ripped out and reinstalled up to code. Calvin lied and misrepresented himself as a Journeyman Electrician. At this point I FIRED him and told him he will no longer be working for me.
In reference to my previous review, Calvin has changed his company name to "Go to Handyman Service", A-Wizard has a bad name I guess.
Kelvin has provided services for me and my family for over 10 years at a variety of residences. He is always punctual, clean, honest and always has good suggestions also if you're not sure on products or brands. I've been really pleased with all his work over the years and know I can count on his knowledge and professionalism. He's quite funny too! Fair prices, gives a quote beforehand with options once he starts the project.
I have nothing but great things to say about the work that Kelvin has done for me. Everything he has done which has been about 6 jobs has been done to my satisfaction. He's been on time and makes great suggestions if I'm not sure what to do. I would certainly recommend him.
This (Calvin)father/son team, initially impressed us with their friendly and informative manner. Came with us to Home Depot to choose shower, gave suggestions for toilet purchase etc. But things soon changed. New vanity was left with bare floor boards and nails sticking up underneath, both bathroom faucets were set so close to the wall I can barely get behind to clean, holes in walls for bathroom plumbing left messy and exposed, floor very uneven in bathroom and the list goes on. shower leaks, wall is discolored from water damage. I e-mailed to request they come and fix and was sent an e-mail that they went bankrupt. No surprise if that is true!! Extremely disappointed overall and disheartened by the hiring a contractor experience.
