I called Pool Buoy and was called back quickly. We set up a time to meet and they were on time. Found the leak. I was very happy with the service.

Skip once again has done work for me at my house. He installed a custom kitchen and a built in China cabinet. His work is second to none, done on time, on budget and with superior finishing. Anyone reading this review can ask Skip for my contact information and I would be happy to tell them about my experience with him. You will not be disappointed by hiring him to make custom cabinets, built ins or vanities in your house. Stephen

As a company we started to use the Homestars service because several customers that hired us stated that they were tempted to go with another company because we did not have any reviews on the Homestars site. Homestars has become the go to site for many consumers when hiring a contracting company. Personally when I hire a company to deliver a service I ask my friends who they may have used and what the service like. With Homestars I am able to effectively ask the whole city what a company service was like. We had a lot of testimonials from our customers but they were not posted on a neutral third party site. Third party testimonials are a very powerful factor in the decision making process for many homeowners. In the past a large portion of our work came from referrals. What Homestars has done for us is take the referrals we would normally get and allow us to show them to a much greater segment of the city. Customers, whether booking a trip or hiring a contractor, value what other people have to say. I have used travel sites for years to get a feel for what a resort destination might be like. I read the bad reviews as well as the good reviews and have found that the overall trend tends to give an accurate picture of what I can expect. Mitch Joel, author of Six Pixels of Separation and a daily blog about the impact of social media on our daily life wrote that “We’ve seen the power of testimonials grow through word of mouth marketing and strengthen even more when introduced to the power of the Web, and the masses of people that can (and do) take a product/service and make it spread.” Jessica Sugar, our account representative, has been extremely helpful setting up our use of the Homestars site to increase our business. She has been very proactive in her dealings with us and has communicated with us in a very professional manner. Jessica has had many suggestions on how we can more effectively use their site to help give potential customers information about our company and the level of service we deliver. As a company we would like to thank Homestars, and specifically Jessica Sugar, for their professional service, which has been helpful to our company and helpful to the general population in finding good quality contractors.

David Moskal has designed many houses and additions for me over the years. He has taken my ideas and turned them into beautiful and functional end products. His knowledge of the industry and expertise makes working with him a pleasure. From the first concept meeting to final drawings and permits he makes the process easy. Stephen Ksiazek

We hired PC service to act as our IT partner to deal with all of our needs. They worked with us to develop our hardware needs, web site, cloud based CRM, online marketing, google adwords programs etc.. The list of IT and web applications that they quarterback for us is almost endless. We would never have had the success with the launch of our new company without their expert advise and implementation. Any small company that wants to grow and thrive in today's competitive market place needs to talk to PC Service On Site. They have been a very important part of our companies success.

I have been in the construction industry for the past 30 years and am a very knowledgeable consumer when it comes to cabinetry and millwork. We did a complete basement renovation and turned our unfinished basement into a beautiful living space. Having made a significant investment, we wanted the finishing touches to match the high-quality look of the rest of the renovations. I hired Malcolm McGrath (aka “Skip”) to build and install custom book shelves, a fireplace mantel, built in storage cabinets and two work desks for our children to do homework at. What a great decision. Skip did most of the work off-site at his shop, so there was no mess at our house. When it all arrived at our house for installation, we loved the look. The interiors of the cabinets were finished in clear maple and the exteriors in satin white. The quality of the work is exceptional. The finishing lacquer has a beautiful smooth feel to it that mass produced cabinets never have. The cost of the work was only a little more than what mass produced Home Depot cabinets are (and theirs are press board crap, not solid wood like Skip built). The value we received was fantastic, and the service was top-notch. Skip is a true professional, which is often missing in the residential renovation market. Thanks Skip.
