My driveway was in horrible shape. Last year I sealed the driveway myself using a Rustoleum product. At first it looked great but then it started showing tire marks everywhere. After the winter it started peeling all off as you can see in the before image. The company agreed to give me my money back. I was going to replace the driveway this year at a cost of $1500 but thought I'd give a professional sealing a try - I'm glad I did. While a bit on the pricey side, Shield Kings saved me over a thousand dollars restoring my driveway. It did take two applications to make it look nice but that's because my driveway was in rough shape. They even came back to repair an area after a car pulled into my driveway and damaged it after the suggested waiting period. This act alone shows Shield Kings is a professional company. The communication from Dabeena was top notch. This too is an area most companies fail in but not Shield Kings. Schedule updates and questions were always answered in a timely manner. I would definitely use Shield Kings again.

I contacted Home Zilla to install a chimney style kitchen fan. After reading the manufacturer instructions I knew I had to do some work prior to them coming over as there was no way they would be able to put in the wall support, add an electrical receptacle, patch and paint the drywall and mount the fan all in one day. So I did everything myself but was having trouble lining up the duct work - I just couldn't get it to work. I did 90% of the job so I called them again and had an appointment booked for this past Friday between 2-4. They call and tell me their technician - who I was told is their best by the way - would be an hour late. He shows up at 7 pm on a Friday - I knew it was going to be a rush job and poorly done and that's how it turned out. In the end they didn't charge me (waived the $85 service fee) after some back and forth. I was told today the technician is no longer working for them. While you can't always tell in this business who is competent or not at least Dan from Home Zilla reached out and made it right by not charging me for something that was poorly done. Hopefully my experience is not one others have encountered. The quality of work from this technician was very poor but the customer service from the company salvaged my view of them.

It's not too often you come across a tradesperson like Antonio. I hired him to install 3 bathroom fans and add a separate switch to the laundry room to control the lights separate from the fan. He also installed a ceiling fan in my son's room. I added the installation of a kitchen chimney style fan to the list at the end. Antonio treats your house like it is his own. He does things right and doesn't leave until the work is done right. When he was installing the upstairs bathroom fan, not only did he connect it but went into the attic to nail down the flaps to the roof and also added tape to ensure the venting was completely sealed. He also checked and sealed my other upstairs bathroom fan. For all three fan installations Antonio cut the hole precisely so no additional drywall work was required. I can't say the same about the contractor I had to update my master bathroom when they install the fan as part of the renovation. During the light switch installation, Antonio managed to do this without damaging any of the ceiling or walls. All the other "electricians" told me they had to open up the walls to do this work. This is what separates people who know what they are doing and those who pretend to know. Antonio definitely knows his stuff. Finally I had Antonio install an exhaust fan over my stove. This one was tricky because he had to remove the existing cabinet without doing any damage, move over the inside drywall hole and adjust the ducts so that he could still manage to install the chimney cover so that the unit was centered over the stove. Antonio spent about 3.5 hours doing all of this and all along he meticulously minimized mess. What you notice most about Antonio is that he cares that he does the job right. He's not there to do the job as fast as he can and then leave you unsatisfied. I cannot say enough about Antonio and only wish my contractor used him for my bathroom renovation. When I finish my basement, I'll definitely hire him. You won't be disappointed with Antonio.
