1-800-Got-Junk?
Junk Removal
Maybe a little more expensive than you'd like, but they arrive quick, fast, and in a hurry.
All Climate Heating & Air Conditioning
HVAC
I used All Climate to install a new gas line for a gas range. They were very quick and professional with lots of communication. Price was reasonable and excellent quality. The King County inspector commented on how professional everything looked.
ApplianceASAP
Appliances
The refrigerator in the house I just purchased was leaking and I had no idea why. I was recommended Appliance ASAP by a local appliance store. It was easy to schedule an appointment. The repair person diagnosed the problem quickly. The water line to the dispenser was broken. He fixed it with a $10 part that he had on hand and was out in 30 minutes. He also cleaned up some of the dust that was back there while he had it open. All in all it was much much cheaper than buying a new refrigerator.
Attic Project
Insulation
The crawl space in my new house was absolutely disgusting. Dead rats, insulation falling down, just gross. I saw the recommendation for Attic Project from one of my friends on Fresh Chalk and decided to give them a call. It was easy to schedule the first consultation. They came out, took pictures, and gave me an estimate. Not the cheapest, but it was necessary and they were very professional. We scheduled the work for a day I wasn't home (crawl space access from outside). They took care of everything! Cleaned up the old stuff, sanitized, rodent proofed (with 5 year warranty) and send me the pictures when they were done. Awesome work, professional company, highly recommend.
Fairwood Construction, LLC
General Contractor
We bought a house in February that needed a lot of work before we could really call it home and we were in a bit of a rush to get it done. Completely new bathroom (which required framing in a wall), updating the kitchen, installing new flooring throughout the house, painting, electrical work. The craftsmanship was high, Adam brought in skilled tradespeople, worked weekends to meet deadlines, kept me informed of issues he found and helped me decide the best way to handle them, and overall helped us make our new house feel like home.
Martinez Painting
Painter
Manuel and his son did an amazing job painting the interior of our remodel. They painted walls, ceiling, trim, cabinets, hand rails. Basically everything. They did drywall repair, painted new walls and matched the texture of the existing wall. They were punctual and worked Saturdays so we could move the remodel project along. I can't say enough good things. Highly recommend.
Mirsky Electric
Electrician
I needed some GFCI outlets installed and my breaker panel looked at. The outlets were a quick change and the electrician gave me lots of info about the panel. He could have recommended changing it and I probably would have done it, but it's a big expense and gave me his honest opinion that it probably doesn't need to be changed, but that I should keep an eye on it. I appreciate that he told my what he would do if it was his house.
Parker Eco Pest Control
Exterminator
I needed a non-toxic way to prevent sugar ants from invading my house since we have two dogs and two cats. They were very responsive and were able to come out quickly. The guy who came respected social distancing and wore a mask, which I appreciated.
