"Mike Hanel, director of MH, stepped in to continue a horrible job performed by Arch Homes Contracting, Richard Jackson, who scams consumers out of their money by collecting high deposits and do not finish the job. MH came in and within one week, they were on the job working diligently and made great progress. They're not 100% complete yet, but I'm much more pleased with MH compared to ARCH Homes. Mike has not requested any money until the job is 100% complete. He's follows through & healed me to regain faith in contractors. Whereas Richard Jackson, Arch Homes guy, who was recommended by Home Advisor's, broke my trust in contractors because I paid this guy a down payment of 7,790 in Dec 2015 for basement finishing and the scarce amount of work that was completed from Dec 2015 to May 2016 was not work 7,790. Beware of Arch Homes. But, trust MH. MH has probably had to complete the project started by Arch Homes in the St. Charles County area. Mike is an honest, trustworthy, and has good ethics and workmanship. Richard Jackson is not to be trusted who has been on the news for scamming consumers. My last piece of advice before hiring a contractor is to investigate the company and contractor's name thoroughly. Contact the Attorney General's Office for a deeper investigation. Unfortunately home advisor and bbb gave Arch Homes a high rating when I did my homework but I failed to contact BBB. These contractors can change the name of the company that prevents them from being tracked of their scams. MH has a clean record."

"We are early in the process and are doing a full kitchen remodel. They started 3 days ago but I will say that Mike and his team from MH Contracting have been amazing. So far the work has been done exactly the way it was described. They clean up each day to the point where there is little to no debris or dust. To say they are professional is an understatement. During the initial process when I had questions I cannot remember a time Mike did not pick up his phone immediately or call me back within a few minutes. It is seldom you find a contractor that is as professional and thorough as Mike and his team. I noticed another review saying they were straightforward and I could not agree more. I absolutely highly recommend MH Contracting. We will use them for every repair or addition to our home moving forward or rely on Mike for his guidance as to who to use. Mike has fully explained what they are doing at every step and then explained what will happen next. Again, I fully recommend MH Contracting."

"They did a great job, it went far beyond our expectations. When the order for the windows got messed up they were very apologetic and upset. They went out of there way to make sure it was as good as it could be and they wouldn't take our payment until everything was completely done. I watch a toddler in our home and they were very cooperative and accommodating with the situation. We have started planning the next project for them to do!"

"When we were faced with remodeling our bathroom, the most important and difficult decision was who to hire. Based on their references, the timeliness of detailed followup communication, and cost projection, we selected this company. Mike and Scott met each one of their promises. They arrived on time, cleaned up after each days work, and were very flexible when I changed my mind more than once! Most of all, they never left until they knew we were satisfied! We somehow knew after meeting with Mike that hiring this Veteran owned and operated company would be a good decision. We look forward to using Mike and Scott.again for additional projects. They have gained our trust by completing our remodel in a very professional manner."

"MH Contracting delivered an impressive structure, the credit for which any contractor would be proud to claim. (See attached photo. Note that the owner (me) has not yet performed his scope of work, namely painting, staining and installing balusters.) Mike was the first to contact me when my firm price, competitive quote, request for quotations was posted on Home Advisor. The project scope was basically to demolish a large existing 37 year old, 832 ft2, two-level cedar deck and replace it with a similar pressure-treated pine structure. All construction materials, equipment and debris had to be manually transported to and from my driveway, which is 13’ above the deck grade, because vehicular access was not possible. Mike and his brother Scott are the heart and soul of MH Contracting, each of them two-tour armed services veterans. There "exceed expectations and make it happen" attitudes are easy to recognize. They and their entire hard working crew were without exception professional, polite and respectful. Since this was a firm price, competitively bid project I expected an effort would be made to get change orders approved which would increase the project cost. This did not happen, it was never even brought up for discussion. MH Contracting suggested and implemented several structural, quality, and aesthetic improvements, all with no cost increase. These included: Grade 1 vs grade 2 lumber, 2X10 & 6X6 vs 2X8 & 4X6 sub structure, free standing rails posts to eliminate house siding penetrations, extended posts above deck railing and added toe-rail for improved appearance, raised a sagging door sill to fit on the decking, and constructed a new step to the lower deck. They told me upfront, "we only leave satisfied customers behind". I am a believer"

"MH Contracting is absolutely top notch! I cannot nor would not think of hiring anybody else for any of my needs at my home. My wife and I wanted to make our basement into a master suite with a large master bathroom and large walk in closet. We contacted Home Advisor which then put us in touch with several companies. MH Contracting was without fail, the best choice. After meeting with all of the companies and comparing bids, we knew that Mike and MH Contracting was the way to go. We had grand plans but were not sure that we could afford to do everything at once. We needed to start with adding an egress window to the basement. Their quote was right within our budget. Mike helped take our basement from an in home office to a wonderful paradise. My wife and I must have changed our plans at least 10 times during the process. Each time Mike and Scott said "no problem". We went from planning a 65 sq ft bathroom to over a 220 sq ft bathroom with an additional walk in closet at another 120 sq ft. This does not even include the master bedroom. From the beautiful walk in shower, 72" soaker tub, tv mounted above the tub to the heated floors, everything has turned out perfectly. Both Mike and Scott are very scrupulous about every aspect of what they do. Then we decided to take down a wall between our twin's bedrooms to make one large room. You can't even tell where the wall was. Their drywall work is amazing. They showed up on time, worked a full day and cleaned up every single day they were here. We trusted them from the beginning. We gave them the alarm code and access to the house exclusively. They even worked while our 13yr old twins were home over spring break. Never a trust issue and that's hard to come by now a days. Our project took about 2 months from start to finish. I've already had Mike and crew out to my father in laws house for some electrical work and to my daughter's house to work up a quote for all new windows and some much needed concrete repair issues. I can't wait for our next project to be planned."

Their employees are friendly, the price was right, communications were excellent, they finished on time, and the finished product showed they take pride in their work.

"Job went very well. They even picked the window up from the supplier at no extra charge. They spackled the window sill where it got scratched and offered to repaint the sill but I didn't have the paint. My only disappointment was they didn't clean the window but they are contractors not window washers.  John is a very professional young man who really knows what he is doing and Scott does what ever he can to make the customer happy. I asked for many bids for this job and they gave me the best price. I will definitely call them if I need another job done."

"MH Contracting was professional, knowledgeable, and extremely helpful for both projects completed. As overwhelming as having a basement, and kitchen remodeled could've been this company was always very patient, and professional. The work was never stalled. The men arrived, and worked diligently every day until all projects were completed. The attention to detail, and insight from the workers was astonishing. Working with this company made large, possibly stressful jobs much more tolerable. My kitchen was remodeled from floor to ceiling, and I couldn't be happier with the finished product. My unfinished basement was entirely enclosed to include a laundry, and mechanical room. The rest of the basement is now livable, enjoyable family space that turned out more beautiful than I had imagined when the projects began. The work throughout is so precise, and on point. I could not help but notice throughout this process the attention to detail that the paid I am super happy with the work, and fully intend on using this company for any further renovations that may arise."

"I hired MH Contracting to install a large bay window in place of a picture window. They came over quickly to look at the job and give me a quote. Their price was a great value so I scheduled the job. They were professional, courteous, knowledgeable and really reasonable with the price. They communicated with me during the whole process, answered my questions and gave me some options and ideas as they were doing the finishing touches. The window exceeded my expectations and has added value to my home. I already have other projects I will have them work on in the near future. I highly recommend them."

"MH Contracting is great to work with. My husband and I wanted to finish our basement with bathroom for some and had our own plans and ideas. Mike and his brother Scott worked with us on the plans and gave us many ideas that were better than what we had planed while keeping in our budget. The quote was very details as to what to expect. The crew was great to work with. Very professional, polite and very respectful of our home and also cleaned up every day after themselves. The remodel went according to the schedule. I am not able to put into words how beautiful my finished basement and bathroom is. It is beyond what we ever planned or hoped for. The products used were of great quality and the workmanship was perfection. Our bathroom layout that was suggested is much better and roomier that what we had planned. The finishes are so beautiful. We now spend more time and are very much enjoying our new living area, recreational area, bar and bathroom. We highly recommend MH Contracting. Mike, Scott and the crew were great to work with and produced such amazing results. MH Contracting is extremely trustworthy and their word and work is impeccable. I am proud to have found an outstanding contractor who is also a Veteran. MH Contracting is the only contractor I will call."

"We found ML Contracting LLC on Home Advisor and they did not disappoint. Mike and his men were prompt, courteous, and knowledgeable.  The Plumbing, electrical work, dry walling, and painting were completed competently and in a timely manner.  The project was managed and supervised  by Mike, who also performed some of the work.   In all, they were a super team---fine young men.  We are very pleased with the finished product.  The corner fireplace is  raised and built into the wall, adding ambiance.  The flooring is tile plank, that resembles wood, and looks great.  We have a built in closet and there is room in the utility room for a "fort" and toddler table and chairs, etc. under the stairwell.  Now, our lower level has a library, bar, rec room, storage room, 2 bedrooms, bathroom-----and our latest ALL PURPOSE room!  When we have an overflow of family, it will become our fifth bedroom.  We highly recommend  MH Contracting LLC. "
