Maintenance Contractors

Need work done in your Condo? Who are you going to call????

If you use an outside company for any kind of maintenance in your Condo, please send Rodger an email with the details. We would like to share your experiences with all home owners.

You might be able to help one of your fellow homeowners save money or they might help you.

Please send information for The Good and especially the Bad.

Tell your fellow homeowners what you think of the work performed, the price, attitude, good or bad experiences, etc. Would you hire them again? Would you recommend them to another homeowner?

This list is a reference list and not a recommendation for any of these companies. I have indicated who uses these companies when known and included their comments. If the company name is not in Green or Red, we need comments from owners who have used these companies.

 

 

Carpets, Floor, Tile, Walls, Cabinets 

Kevin Jesse (843) 685-8797 NOT recommended. Dolorene Arruda had a BAD EXPERIENCE and multiple problems with this contractor who replaced her door. Dolorene will be glad to tell you all the problems she had with him.

Dan Shaffer - Professional Painting (910) 650-0173 is NOT recommended. Phil Bowman had a BAD EXPERIENCE and multiple problems with this contractor. Turned what should have been a three-week project into nine weeks. Good painter but had to have everything else he did redone. Can't hang doors, can't do crown molding and can't do floors. He screwed up our floors and it cost $4000 to fix. Some people in the building talked to him and have his business cards. We are taking him to court once we settle in this weekend. He works all cash and doubles the original cost.

Don Stout - All Pro Painting.  Rodger and Cindy Simcox had a BAD EXPERIENCE with Don. Would have been a fair price if the quality and craftsman ship were up to standards. Sloppy work - boards do not meet - paint is pealing off the walls.  Tammy Diedrich OFP 1910 said she Good Experience with his price and work.

 

Sam and Patrick Graffeo's business ReNu Flooring. (732) 525-2023 Sam and Joann are owners here at Ocean Forest Plaza. Scott and Becky Hoback are very pleased with their work.   "Please add to the preferred list of contractors Sam and Patrick Graffeo’s business ReNu flooring. They were as you would expect really good to work with. We had new engineered hardwood flooring added to replace the existing carpeted areas. Everything done professionally and at a very reasonable price." Scott Hoback.   Sam also provides live music at our socials.

Gus can be reached @ cell phone # 910-389-7750 or EMail @ sbwgw@yahoo.com.   Jim Dowd Unit # 308 

Oceanside Renovation (843 957 3328)  Audrey Farrell, Unit 902:  Jan. 2017 - Based on reviews I read on HomeAdvisor.com I hired Oceanside Renovation (843 957 3328) to remove the wallpaper and paint my living room/kitchen. I was extremely happy with the quality of the work which took only 2 days.  I thought the price of the job was reasonable and it included the cost of the materials and paint. The owner, Janssen was a pleasure, responsive, reliable and extremely neat and clean. Oceanside does all types of home improvement. I would definitely hire Oceanside again.

Advanced Granite & Marble, owner Bruce E. Grassie, 843-650-2467   Highly recommend by Art Demers. After  working with Lowe,s  for 3 months on a vanity top, 2 tops that they measure for, came in wrong, the third they  made a template fore it. they told me the template had been sent to there suppler & would take 2 to 3 weeks for the  vanity top to come in. I called every week to check on progress. When it went into the 3 week, I went to the store & had then call the suppler to see if it had been shipped. The suppler had no idea what we were talking about. Come to find out the template was still sitting in Lowes back room. Cancel order, called A.G.& M. Explain what had happen with Lowe,s.  They came out on Monday morning, took measurements, called Tuesday morning to say they will be there by 11.30 to install vanity top. one day turn around. Beautiful work, great people to work with.

Richard Potter (Unit 1707) Painting     Resident Owner has many references here and at Ocean Forest Villas where he also owns a condo. To ask Richard for his references, contact him at  (231) 409-2348 or email him at rapotter11@gmail.com .  Bill Wooddell wrote: The reason I'm writing is to recommend our painter, Rich Potter, to anyone who's in need of a top-notch craftsman.  He's done all of our annual painting for 8-10 years and his fees are certainly reasonable.  He solved our mildew problem on the exterior wall (we have a corner unit) through the use of his vast experience and lots of "elbow grease."  We were happy to learn about a year ago that he'd bought and moved into a unit at OFP.  In summary, we'd highly recommend Rich's talents and expertise to anyone needing this type of work in their unit.

A&H Custom Woodwork 843-293-1439 Donnie Alford  --  recommended by: My sister, Diane Hein (units 2010 & 2012), and I would like to recommend Donnie Alford of A&H Custom Woodwork, 843-293-1439, for anyone looking to have cabinets refaced or built and countertops installed.  We both had him build and install a custom island (great for extra storage & counter space and room for barstool seating) and an under-the-counter cabinet in the vanity area for our units (you can never have enough storage space).  I also had him reface the cabinets in the kitchen and bathroom which really upgraded up the unit.  He did a terrific job, is extremely easy to work with and we highly recommend him. Pam Michel

SRZ Refrigeration - (843) 902-4344. Steven Zienowicz .
This company was replacing the air conditioning unit inside a condo on the 6th floor. He stated he has to custom order replacement units, remove and replace the wall to change one of these out. He estimated a cost of $4,800 to me sight unseen. I do not have any references or comparisons for this company.  
Tammy Diedrich OFP 1910 reports she used SRZ Refrigeration "who installed my new air unit.  He ordered it right from the factory.  It took 6 to 8 weeks to have it built.  You cannot buy this unit anymore has to be special made because of the water roof system the building has.  Two years ago it cost 3900.  The couple times I had an issue with it he went right to the building repaired it at no charge."

Firestone at 613 N. Kings Hwy Myrtle Beach (843) 353-4313 Nikki Wilson wrote: On a Saturday evening about 5 p.m. (of course) the car overheated and required a fan replacement.  The Firestone at 613 N. Kings Hwy in Myrtle Beach was the only place open. Since the car had to be towed and repaired before leaving Sunday, our options were limited.  The manager waited for us to arrive as they were closed by the time the tow truck could drive us there and scheduled the necessary repair on Sunday.  He also waited for the cab to pick us up to ensure our safety as it is not the best neighborhood for two old ladies to be alone in. The car was repaired before noon and we were on our way.  I can't say enough good things about these guys.  I now bring my car down here to have oil changes etc.  The last time I went they found my key fob which had fallen perfectly inside the track of the drivers side seat.  (You just can't make this stuff up folks!)  I hunted for it myself but, I couldn't see, feel or reach it.  One of the guys retrieved it for me in less than 10 minutes.  That kind of service is unusual these days, and I for one appreciate it!

Since Steve is battling cancer we rented a pink limo from Carolina Limousine.

When some one rents the pink limo $10.00 of every hour the limo is reserved goes to the fight against Breast Cancer. Our driver was also the owner (Joe)  of the company that also rents regular limos.  We had the driver greet our friends at the gate and escort them to the waiting limo. It was a big surprise and we had a lot of fun with it.  We would highly recommend Carolina Limousine.
