Chris and his colleagues are very professional. They worked and finished the construction before the promised time! They were courteous, on time, stayed on budget, always able to get a hold of at anytime of the day. His work is exceptional and exceeded my expectations!

Everything went perfect. We communicated well before the job started and Chris finished when he said. He left the area clean, just as he found it. The job he did looks great!

Originally I hired Chris to install a couple of ceiling fans and a range hood vent to replace a non-functioning over the range microwave, but the job evolved over time as I decided to wait for the range hood install and hang additional fans and also replace my two ancient smoke detectors. Chris quoted me a very fair price for all of the work, and in spite of having to remove and then return to re-hang one of the fans when we discovered it was defective, he did not charge me for the additional time. This man knows a lot about so many things because he has been a general contractor for many years. He is friendly, professional, prompt, and very helpful. He is a very hard working person, and seems to enjoy anything that involves improving a home. I had a few years of setbacks with my health, so my home has been neglected and I am working to catch up on a very tight budget. Chris’s work and pointers beyond “the sale” have really made an impact on my efforts, motivation, and enjoyment of my home. When I mentioned that I was going to attempt to paint the house myself, Chris quoted a very reasonable price for pressure washing for the size of my home, driveway and sidewalk, and he did a wonderful job. He applied the cleaner and let it sit overnight (something I have never seen someone pressure washing do), and when he did the washing the next day he was very thorough, even giving my wood fence and gate a fresh look! If it was not for the fact that my current paint is 10 years old and doesn’t match my new siding, I would not have to paint my house at all, it looks so good! Before leaving today, Chris spent some time giving me tips on how to paint strategically, calculating the amount of paint I need based upon how much I’ve used of the first 5 gallons while applying 2 coats to just a portion of the house. He talked about the type of roller I should use, etc. He did not have to offer this information, but wanted to make sure I would know how to avoid buying more paint than I need. This general contractor loves his work, even the “small stuff”, but also does some amazing major remodeling and construction work, from the photos I have seen. I am considering some kitchen work next summer, and would definitely want him to be my contractor for the job!

The project went great; on time and on budget (except for some voluntary improvements along the way). Chris is a very effective, on-the-ball, and highly communicative contractor. We were extremely blessed to have him on this project. I would highly recommend Chris.

We are very pleased with the work of Barnhardt Construction and will definitely call them back for our next project. Chris Barnhardt and his team did an excellent job, were on time every day and kept a clean work place. All their hard work resulted in a beautiful Red Mahogany tung and groove ceiling on our Lanai and front porch. They also installed new ceiling fans and did some tile and Sheetrock work in my family room. Could not have had a more positive experience. Installed red mahogany stained 6″ tongue and groove on our lanai ceiling and front porch. Also installed 3 ceiling fans and did tile and Sheetrock work in our family room.

Redesigned my entire kitchen and completely remodeled it. From countertops to tiles floors. Complete remodel. I had a quick response to my inquiry about the remodel. Estimates for times and costs were clear and precise. There was great communication and everything was handled professionally. The cost and the time frame was accurate and fair. All of my expectations were exceeded. My kitchen was done in a timely matter and didn’t exceed my quoted cost. Everything looks great and I received tons of compliments from my family and visitors. Definitely recommend and will use in the future. A+ service and professionalism.

Replaced the tiles in our 2 bathrooms, replaced the wallboard and plumbing behind the tile and put in new faucets and shower fixtures. Replaced the sinks in the bathrooms. All the work was done beautifully. After the work was finished, they vacuumed and cleaned so they didn’t leave any mess behind. Chris made sure everything was to our liking and did any little touch ups that I saw, I was 100% satisfied with the work he did. We would use him again in the future.

An exterior side entry doorway was installed into our concrete block wall. The entryway was cut out and a new door was installed. The concrete and stucco surrounding the door was refinished to match the existing exterior finish. An exterior light was wired and mounted.We cannot say enough good things about Residential Remedies. Owner Chris Barnhardt worked with us to schedule the job according to our schedule. High quality materials were used and the men were meticulous in their work. The crew worked tirelessly to complete and perfect the project. We are saving up to have our next home improvement project completed by Barnhardt Construction and highly recommend this company.

Work performed: – creating stud wall for linen closet and framing for drop-in tub – dry wall and texture walls, blending texture with existing walls – removing popcorn ceiling texture and replacing with knock-down texture – creating shower pan – tiling of floor, tub deck, and shower – installing all fixtures, vanity cabinet and counter-top – fixing sticky entry door – installing bathroom hardware – wiring for additional ceiling lighting (3 recess lights) – installing vanity and ceiling lighting – relocating and installing new vent fan – installing new baseboards – installing bi-fold door and frame trim for linen closet and closet wire shelving In order to save money ($400), we did our own painting. We wanted to do a gut remodel of our master bathroom. It started as a do-it-yourself project. After doing demolition and some plumbing, we realized that we were quickly in over our heads and decided to bring in a contractor to finish the job. We contacted three contractors to give us quotes for labor (we providing the materials since we already had most of them). We were on a very tight budget. Their friendliness, flexibility, professionalism. Chris came across as being an honest person and eager to work. There were some minor hick-ups along the way, as with any big project, but Chris and his crew were prompt in righting them and in the end, we came out with a gorgeous bathroom everyone raves about. I would be glad to give Chris my business again. The issuses with the concrete floor not level, the plumbing drain and the duct work missing were all existing prior to me starting the job. Just wanted to make that clear in this report.
