Hamilton House Painters just finished a fence for us. Absolutely love the quality of workmanship and the end result. Could not be happier.
Thank you very much for your comments and review; it was a pleasure working for you and Dave.
And, we really appreciate the business!
Call us anytime.
James was always very quick to respond with site visits, emails, and work/corrections/modifications. Friendly and reasonable prices. The contractors did their jobs well, and right on schedule! It was an excellent experience.
I found it strange to request a large % of the payment up front but no need to worry. It all worked out, and service was delivered as expected.
You will need to sift through a long quote but he is just trying to be thorough (I would suggest to shorten the quote perhaps by writing the detailed conditions and exclusions into an appendix...but you get all the details)
Thanks very much for your review. It was a pleasure workign with you and your husband on your new-build project.
We would be delighted to work with you again if you ever need our services.
All the Best,
June 2017: I had to give this "company" a 1 because there's nothing lower. Don't use them - they demand a huge deposit up front & breached our contract by poor workmanship, unskilled workers, inferior products. I hired them to build a gate then a fence in my backyard. They should state on their website the truth; they hire "subcontractors" who were not experienced fence builders which Was clear in their poor workmanship. Insulting my neighbours, used inferior products (green, TWISTED posts, cracked boards), workers not showing up, ran out of gas driving workers to my home, ran out of materials, etc, many many excuses. I gave the company 2 deposits and my neighbours on one side also gave (Mr.James Kinnaird (owner) a $400. deposit which he pocketed and did no work for, hire employees or purchase product. After 5 days they were no way near half completed & broke the gate they built which I'd paid for separately, promising they'd replace it but didn't. I ended up firing them as a result, out of pocket $5600+ and had to hire a professional company to complete the job & fix all their poor work in record time! I'm not finished with them yet.
July 2018: I made a claim to the company's liability Insurance Company for damages sustained to my cement pad, driveway, lawn and mature shrub, all a result of poor workmanship, improper use of equipment/tools, excessive/unnecessary damage to lawn. Although Mr. Kinnaird claimed he/they were blameless, none of their vehicles were ever in my driveway, I planted the shrub after they were fired. However, I had documentation to confirm otherwise and his Insurance company settled with me for some of my damages. Unfortunately, the insurance company did not cover the broken gate because it was considered damage to "your work" (under a commercial general liability policy) nor the extra costs to to amend the fence and build a new gate to name a few of our out of pocket expenses.
I have attempted several times to resolve this matter with Mr. Kinnaird to no avail.
I'm not done yet.
As regards this customer, Cindy in Hamilton, and her specious review:
1. This customer has been attempting to get out of her contract since the day after it was signed.
2. She demanded that we return her money, after 75% of the job was complete, or she would "slander" us online - which she is doing here.
3. She has been systematically posting negative reviews all over the internet, along with her neighbour, who purports to be a fence builder, since she attempted to obtain a 50% discount on her job.
4. At the time she terminated the contract, we were 1-2 days away from completion, and, were on time, and, on budget. In my opinion, her attempt to obtain a discount and her threats to "slander" us were nothing more than an attempt to take advantage of a contractor.
5. If there were staffing issues on the site, it is because the client stood over them, yelling at them, harranguing them, complaining, and, generally being a nuisance; almost every tradesmen, including some with years of experiences with us, refused to return to the site after being exposed to her. Some wrote letters to us indicating that thay felt abused by this client.
6. There were never any shortage of goods; we attempt to deliver "just in time" for use, to avoid loss where the materials cannot be secured.
7. The only reason the fence was not completed was because she arbitrarily terminated the job early - likely to give it to the neighbour, whom she discovered was a "fence builder" after she had booked the work with us, and, whom she tells me could do the job "under the table" for less money.
Hamilton House Painters did an excellent job on painting my house from top to bottom. They were efficient and prompt. The new baseboard trim looks amazing and they did an excellent job, very professional! I would use this company again!
Thank you very much for the review. We certainly appreciate working for great customers like yourself, and, appreciate the business. Please call us anytime; we would be delighted to work with you again.
Congrats on the new home; we hope you and your family enjoy it for many years.
