The guy Jerry, who I believe is the owner, he was very friendly. He told me that my fence did not need replacing, it just needed repair because I did not know. He gave me an estimate that was about $200 more, maybe even more. He was offering to do like 20 feet of bulking up the fence on the side with a 2 x 6 through the center. He only offered to do like 24 feet. The company that I went with do the whole length of the fence which is twice that and it was about $250 less. They also offered some pressure treated wood that is made to withstand weather and Jerry gave me an estimate for feeder without sort of exploring and it was cheaper to do in the treated woods. If I had gone with Jerry, I would not know about the treated wood option. But he was very friendly and I would call him again to get an estimate. He was really accommodating. He offered a lot of solutions about weak parts in the fence and what could be done and he was very helpful but he was just not the one I went with because of the price and because of the pressure-treated wood came out to be a lot cheaper. Even though it was high, he returned my call immediately. He came out within a day or two. I tried to get somebody else from Angie's List to come out and he was not even available until mid September just to do an estimate. So, Jerry showed up on time when he said he would. He did the estimate quickly. He gathered his information and then got the estimate back to me and he emailed the following day. He was really professional. In professionalism, we would include making customers aware of all of their options.
We called Jerry for a quote and he took our waving of hands and gesturing and turned it into a drawing that was exactly what we hoped for. On the day he started Jerry was here on time, coffee in hand and ready to work. The work progressed swiftly, and took about a day and a half over three days. We had to wait for paint to dry, or else I think it would have been two days. Our requirements were simple. Mostly the storage and workbench had to be strong. As it was delivered, it was both strong and good looking. I am as happy as can be with my new workbench. The doors work better than they have in 10 years. We are extremely happy with Advantage Services and Jerry Chadwick. We will use him again, we are already dreaming up ideas for the next project. I have to note, I spend 30 minutes in the garage doing nothing and I am dirty. Jerry worked steadily for hours in the same garage, and at the end of the day he looked as fresh and as tidy as when he arrived. I don't know how he does it.
Just a note to let you know how pleased we have been with the work you have done for us to our house over the years. From the small projects to the large, your diligence, honesty, attention to detail and adherence to your bid is a rare find these days. Your knowledge of “how to make things work” is as impressive as your finish work, and we were so impressed with the major bathroom remodel that you recently did for us, were will be requesting our services again soon.

The project went wonderfully from first to last. We were "problem customers" in one way, because the timing of the project was difficult. We had a really short window for it between a holiday and the arrival of house guests. Jerry managed to fit it in more smoothly than we could have imagined, and with no disruption to our plans. He's such an efficient, heads-down worker, so clean and quiet in his work habits, and so thoughtful of his customers that we hardly knew he was there until our beautiful new bathroom appeared--in plenty of time for our house guests! Jerry genuinely wanted us to have this project exactly as we wanted it, and that's the way it came out. He is helpful with ideas and advice, and he willingly shares his extensive knowledge and experience (important for us, as we are not handy around the house and don't have experience of our own to draw on). His prices are fair and reasonable (middle of the range of bids we took) but it's even better than that: When you consider the careful, thorough, and skillful work he does, not skimping on any detail, his prices are actually rock bottom. He even saved us money by knowing where and how to get good buys on needed items. There were no surprises in the bill, either; even the change we made was economically done.
This project entailed replacing toilets, vanities, removing a bathtub and putting tile where the tub had been. Jerry was accurate with his quote and very detailed in assisting us with picking out vanities and toilets that would match our decor and our budget. He found other minor issues during the course of the remodel and was diligent about speaking to us about the issue and our options on how to resolve the issues. Prior to this project, Jerry added a bathroom to our basement. That project was ran very organized and timely as well. In the future, we will be having him remodel our kitchen.
We have known Jerry for about seven years and he has been helping us with a lot of projects since then. No surprises in the quotes and no hidden upgrade charges. All work done on time if not earlier. No mess or damage left behind. Quick response to service requests. Permit work taken care of. When we need upgrade work at our home, don't even seek other bids. We know Jerry will do it right, right on time and right price. Never any quality issues. He's a keeper.

Advantage Services has been a pleasure to work with – We have had a bathroom remodeled, a perimeter fence to a busted pipe in the wall which need plumbing to drywall work. I can always count on them to arrive on time, be very particular about the work or job and I can count on them to give me a fair price. When it comes to a job that we can’t do I call Advantage Services. Thanks Jerry & Gang!!
