We hired them to do 3 things for us:
1. Create a transition between carpet in a garage that was turned into a family room and a hallway that had laminate flooring.
2. Repair some drywall damage near the carpet in a stairwell
3. Install pinboard-style shelving in an L-shaped awkward closet
They came over to our house first to talk about everything and then prepared a quote.
All were done to our satisfaction. I'd like to make a few comments about the transition issue. The carpet people had failed to come up with a solution to the problem (they sort of just ignored it actually). The flooring contractor who hired the carpet guys was somewhat helpful but didn't make us want to have his laminate flooring guys come in.
Our previous general contractor who had done other work in the house had offered to take care of the transition and what we got was a disaster. The worker (who admitted he hated transitions) glued a T type transition to the laminate and the carpet. So half of the T-transition was hanging over onto the transition. It was sure to break eventually. It also created a raised area in the floor. The second solution brought forth by the contractor was to put a raised threshold transition. We said "no way".
Paul and Paul from Clever Investments came over and it was great to see them trying to come up with a solution for the transition that would work and that would look and feel good. He ended up coming up with a great solution. The transition area was very tricky as the concrete was raised there only in the transition area, compared to the areas under the carpet and laminate. So he had to chip away at the concrete for a long time so that he could then put a piece of wood into the transition area. He made it flush with the laminate so it feels great when you walk over it.
The piece of wood later bent upwards a bit but he came over and sanded it down for us so that it was flat again (for free).
The pinboard shelving in the closets was awesome and there was wall repair work in the stairwell was great, you can't even tell it was patched and touched up with paint.
They are very nice and are great at communicating and listening and figuring out what you want. I would recommend them to anyone looking at hiring someone for home renovation on handy-man services.
