Comments: Nathan Barnes and his guys were very professional. They were on time each day and worked consistently. As soon as I can, I will be contacting AHW Contracting to do some interior work on my house for me.

Comments: This guy is a great resource. He is prompt and very accommodating. I contacted him from out of state and was expecting the worse but he made the project carefree and did a very good job. I wish I had someone like this here in California to call on. Give him a try, I&#39;m sure you wont be disappointed.

Comments: I was contacted by Nathan within minutes of my request for services. He came by to estimate the job as agreed and was on time providing the estimate for consideration. I was impressed with his knowledge and accepted the bid. Lorne was the carpenter assigned the job of rebuilding my deck; he was professional and very knowledgeable of his craft. He updated me constantly and sought my opinion on any possible changes to the job that occurred during construction. I am very satisfied with the project completion, and will certainly use American Handi Works (AHW) for future projects.

Comments: American Handiwork’s did an excellent job on minor repairs. Nathan came just when he promised and he and his helper worked efficiently and with a minimum of disturbance. They are also courteous, friendly, and respectful of the property. Others may be cheaper, but in my experience none are as good.

Review Date: 06/21/2018 | Author: Kyle C.

Comments: Nathan built and stained/sealed a beautiful new deck for my family and I in early May of this year. He is very polite, professional, courteous, and an extremely hard worker. He did the majority of the project in 90+ degree heat by himself! The project would have been completed much sooner, had it not been for the 2 straight weeks of rain that followed. Nathan is also very creative. My wife and I had a concept in our heads as to the style of a new staircase and left it up to him to be the artist. He came through in a BIG way despite many challenges with unevenly pitched surfaces upon which we asked him to build. He also fixed a gate on our fence while he was here. He completed the job under budget, with no surprises in regards to needing more money for materials or anything like that. We absolutely love the work he did for us and would absolutely recommend him!

Review Date: 06/08/2018 | Author: Jef P.

Comments: Quality work at a great price. They do what they say they will do in the time frame they say. Well done.

Review Date: 03/01/2018 | Author: Merilee H.

Comments: Friendly and helpful, and prompt. The painting on the floor, especially, could have been done better, I think they were in a hurry to get finished. After the construction was done, there was some debris that got painted over (pine straw, leaves, nails). Nothing major, just a bit of a mystery...

Review Date: 02/22/2018 | Author: Michael W.

Comments: Very friendly and easy to talk with.Very good work with no mess left behind.Project was scheduled for a specified date to be performed but did not find out until I contacted contractor to learn they were a day behind schedule.Contractor should have called customer with the delayed start rather than customer calling contractor in middle of day to get status. Overall very pleased and satisfied with all aspects of the job performed.. Will use again for future improvements and repairs.

Comments: Nathan at American Handiworks was great. He relieved a lot of stress over our situations and the repairs that we needed. In short, I recently moved from the Cayce, SC area to Fort Worth, TX and was in need of someone trustworthy and reliable to work on our house in preparation for sale. Nathan great in communicating what he would do, sent before and after pictures, and gave me a great and fair price. I would strongly recommend and his crew to others. They did it all from painting, wood repair, tile repair, and replacing damaged kitchen cabinet doors. Can&apos;t say how happy I am that Home Advisor got us together.
