I am looking for an inexpensive contractor as well - to remodel my kitchen.
Cannot locate any contractors in neighborhood who want to show up to provide an estimate, let alone to complete the entire job.
Maybe we can get a 2 for 1 deal....

I recently hired Jon Zaks

I recently hired Jon Zaks aka More Than a Handy Man to remodel my bathroom and would NOT recommend him. He was punctual at first and friendly but he and his workers were mostly all talk. My biggest complaint is that they caused two separate leaks, one from not connecting the toilet correctly and one from not connecting the shower/sink drain pipe correctly. Both leaks damaged my kitchen ceiling and wall.

I'm also looking, but keep running into road blocks with contractors not returning phone calls.

What is really ashame is that a few are online users.

There was a guy named Chris on here that is also on a real estate investment group that I belong to. comes highly recommended by the investors. I believe he lives in Fishtown, just can't remember his last name right now.

You are thinking of Chris Stock of the Stock Group. He no longer lives in Fishtown but may still be doing work in the area. I don't know his number but you can check out his website at http://www.thestockgroup.net/

A contractor has been working on my bathroom for the last week. With luck, they'll be finished in the next day or so. Since they're not finished yet, I can't give you a final verdict. So far, I can tell you that I found the price to be reasonable, they haven't rushed through the job, and they are very concerned with my satisfaction.

If anyone is interested in meeting the contractor and seeing their work, drop me a PM and I'll get you in touch.

Just remember that the crappy decorating choices were mine, and not the responsibility of the contractor.

I recently used Preston

I recently used Preston General Contracting for a home improvement job and was very pleased with their response time to my inital call for quote, their turnaround time with an e-mailed PDF of the said quote outlining the work to be done, the efficiency and quality of the work/workers, and the fact that the final rate was less than what was quoted. Andy, the owner is hands on and local Fishtown resident. Check out www.prestongc.com and send Maria, who works the office and really holds it down, an e-mail to request a time for Andy to check it out:

I tried to work with Chris Stock. He came out to look at the job but when it came time to do it and I needed a quote for homeowners, he did not return my calls, did not return my e-mails. I did catch him on the phone once or twice and he said he get right back to me but never did. I think he is really busy and it seemed from speaking with him he did mostly high end stuff like $40k kitchens. Very disappointed because I liked his eco-friendly work philosophy.

What do you all have against Frankie the fixer? It's true I had my share of bad plumbers but if you stick around while the work is done there won't be any problems.
