Review Date: 02/12/2020 | Author: Gail K.

Comments: So far we have hired Armando and his crew twice, for a variety of projects. We have a lot of experience with handymen; I have owned over 40 rental properties, and have gone thru quite a few trades people over 30+ years. When I was younger I did a lot fo the work myself. I'm now older & retired, so I pays someone to do the harder jobs in my home; I no longer have rentals to worry about. The first day was sort of a test of the test of workmanship and prices. The second day had many more items on the list. He does excellent work quickly and for a very fair price. We are two older women and in later years we have experienced the "little old lady shuffle" as I call it. None of that with Armando. No BS, no price gouging, just quick, quality work and good prices. When presented with a challenge, he was creative in his solutions. If he couldn't do something, he was honest rather than doing an improper job (a quality I truly appreciate). He did numerous projects for us (including mainly electrical, mailbox installation, doorbell repair, caulking, installing grab bars, picture & mirror hanging, minor cabinet repair, cabinet installation etc). We are extremely pleased and will hire Armando for future work.

Comments: Very good service and on time. Knowledgeable would act as a referance

Comments: Armando was great and so was his crew. He was able to provide an estimate using photos and gave us a price for the entire job. The job consisted of removing cabinetry in a closet, removing shelving and prepping and painting walls in several closets for a new shelving system. His guys showed up on time, did very nice work quickly and were careful not to leave a mess. They dealt with some unexpected challenges (ceiling resurface and my own underestimating paint quantity) creatively and cheerfully...great to work with. They were also respectful of condo rules, which can be a problem with contractors! Armando was very responsive to my call, texts, and emails. I am sorry to say that I did not get to meet him, but hope to on the next project! By the way, he is a licensed contractor-good to know since condo associations sometimes require this. Thank you!

Comments: Armando accomplished in two days what we couldn't do in two weeks. He painted the living space in our new home. Installed all the light fixtures and fans. Mounted our TV. He was timely, efficient, and a pleasure to work with. He's our "GO TO" man for all our future projects.

Comments: We had a lot of different projects to do in the house we just bought. Hired Armando (Lorelei Contracting). He is a great guy, very talented engineer. He did a lot of electrical work for us, as well as painting, door installation, popcorn ceiling removal, and laminate floor installation. If you need a handy man, Armando is your guy!

Comments: On time!

Review Date: 07/27/2017 | Author: Mike C.

Comments: Armando did a fantastic job enclosing my front porch with screens and a door. He communicated often prior to the project date to ensure we were both on the same page for the design and materials. He showed up on time and confirmed the exact details and demensions. Then completed the job and clean up quickly and thoroughly. Made sure to demonstrate the final product to ensure my satisfaction with his work. Additionally, he was the second cheapest of 5 quotes I received, and offered more options for the price than the cheapest. He also came out in less than a week of my first contact while others quoted 3-6 weeks. Most importantly, when I sent pics of the finished job to my wife, her text back to me had this to say: "And the porch looks great! I love it more than I thought I would!!" I'm a very satisfied client.

Comments: I have used this company in the past for a variety of household tasks, and they have always exceeded my expectations as far as quality and cost. In this case, even though it was a small job, they came out with helpers and had the ceiling fan done in 20 minutes at a very reasonable cost. With service like this, I will continue to use them for other jobs, large and small. Kudos to Armando.

Comments: Look for a local multi-tenanted handyman for your honey-do list. It's amazing! Much better than your honey can do

Comments: Outstanding service!

Review Date: 05/30/2016 | Author: Charles M.

Comments: I went through 2 other , non reputable contractors before I had the pleasure of meeting Armando. I received bids from 5 contractors , Armando's wasn't the lowest but the best written and extensive. He showed up on time, usually early, cleaned up after his work, kept me informed of his progress and finished exactly when he said he would. He didn't try to sell me anything extra only issues he saw after starting. His workmanship was excellent , his ideas were spot on and his communication the best. he did flooring, tile, cabinets, counter top, painting, plumbing and electrical. I highly recommend his company and work.

Review Date: 05/17/2016 | Author: J paul B.

He insures that the work is done correctly. I highly recommend him for many different project: painting, electrical, cabinet work, etc. He does a fantastic job - EVERY TIME. I have engaged him on four different occasions.

Comments: I would highly recommend Lorelei Contracting for any jobs that need to be for the interior or exterior of your house. The owner is very professional & will get back promptly with his quote. All his work is done with great quality & at a good price. He'll put in the extra efforts to please you & did not charge us extra to satisfy us. We had a house to sell in Brandon, FL & we live in California & needed all the work done a month before to list it. He performed everything in a professional manner & paid attention to every detail - the tile job in the bathroom & hallway were remarkable! And also satisfied all the work for our Home Inspection Report we needed done. He's good in all the wood work. The painting in the interior rooms were outstanding with his taste for color, excellent! We would give them a 5 plus star rating review and recommend them to any one needing work on their house.

Review Date: 02/02/2016 | Author: Ken B.

Comments: Great all around handyman. Just moved in and had a number of items that needed attention. Put in new larger sink, accommodated all the plumbing. Took out old light and fan fixtures, put in new ones. Put in fixtures in bath room, installed garbage disposal. Attentive, detail oriented, fair in pricing, sticks to his word. What more can you want.

Comments: Fantastic response and timely. Completed an entire repainting of the interior of our home in just two days. Purchased paint at a discount. Armando and his staff did a wonderful job.

Comments: Armando and his assistant, Jorge, repaired the hole in the ceiling in our master bedroom. They replaced the sheetrock, and painted the whole ceiling. They hung plastic curtains around the area, they covered all the furniture with tarps, and they vacuumed up afterwards. They did an excellent job, and everything matches perfectly. We would definitely call them again.

Comments: I am very impressed with the professionalism and quality of work that Armando and his team delivered on my projects. He was very prepared when he came to give me the quote, made me feel at comfortable. Send me a professional quote via email and started to work on my house in the timeline agreed upon. The work product superb! He and his team worked on drywall and ceiling repair and plaster. They painted the interior of the home and installed baseboards. The house looks like a brand new home. I will absolutely use his services again and recommend him. Armando and his team deserve lots of kudos for the great work they do. Very thankful for all they did!!

Comments: Owner Armando Vasquez is a class act, he takes his business very seriously and is extremely reliable. As a Licensed General Contractor I am always looking for quality, reliable subs. I have found a Company in Lorelei Contracting that I can depend on .

Review Date: 12/09/2014 | Author: Mark G.

Comments: Great guy and very trustworthy. Would hire him again for any job. I live out of State and had to put a lot of trust in him to work independently.

Review Date: 11/11/2014 | Author: Keith C.

Comments: Unlike some contractors, Armando was very diligent in showing up to bid on my job and he was equally diligent in making sure I was satisfied when the work was completed. He and his assistant did a good job and the work was completed in a little over a day. His price was reasonable and I am completely satisfied with the result.

Review Date: 10/21/2014 | Author: Joe P.

Comments: Armando arrived with 2 competent helpers on the first day, and finished the remaining tasks by himself on the second day. They worked quietly and efficiently. The work included installing a sink in the existing vanity in our guest bathroom. When installation problems arose, he solved them. He also removed our old master bath vanity, and installed a new one (which we had purchased at Lowe's). He discovered that the drawers of the new vanity were blocking the holes in the wall for the plumbing, but he solved that problem by rerouting the pipes. He and his helper did an excellent job painting the walls of both bathrooms with the paint that we supplied. He also painted the wainscoting in our hallway. His drop cloths protected our floors and carpets. We had a temperamental sliding glass door which now slides easily, and a cabinet door that shuts properly, thanks to Armando's work. We will hire him again because he is a competent multi-talented worker, and his prices are affordable.

Comments: No only did this contactor do the exterior painting I was so satisfied I got him back for other jobs. He was prompt, respectful, professional, accommodating.

All work was professional, timely and completed as promised. The job included replacing several facia boards, pressure washing, complete cauking, and total house paint. I could not be happier with the results. Armando was a pleasure to work with, his crew are hard dedicatd workers who have much pride in their work. I will be calling Armando for my next project and highly recommend Lorelei to the community. Positive comments from neighbors!

Comments: Everyone was very professional and very fast. They did an excellent job. I will hire them again in the future with my next painting job.

Review Date: 05/21/2014 | Author: Aaron H.

Comments: Armando was great and met all of our expectations. He was very patient with all my requests (I am very picky, meticulous and see minute details) and if I asked him to do something he did it with a smile. We started out with a paint job for the inside of the house, but as we saw his talent for fixing things he ended up painting doors, putting new flooring in, sinks, installing light switches, new doors, fixtures, fence gate, etc. Now we are contracting him to paint the outdoors as well as fix brickwork. He is multi-talented and you won't be disappointed! Best of all was the price!

Review Date: 04/23/2014 | Author: Tariq H.

Comments: He was very professional and fair with his handling of the project. The extended frame of the front door was redone without using a pre-made frame; saving money on supplies. I was impressed by the handiwork and recommend his services to others in need of a carpenter.

Review Date: 04/21/2014 | Author: Kathy N.

Comments: on time, very pleasant. Work completed to my satisfaction. Will hire again. Did a nice job of retro-fitting a front door replacement. Fee was very reasonable. Armando takes pride in his work, something you do not always see these days. I have other work I will be hiring him to do.
