Nickie recently transformed a garage/workshop into a fun room/workshop to better fit our needs. Nickie is multi-skilled, so easy to work with and his rates are very reasonable. He handled our “field modifications” professionally and in a timely manner. He was responsive to our phone calls and kept us informed of next steps as the job progressed. We used a lot of recycled materials on the project which are not the easiest to work with. Nickie took it all in stride and did an incredible job. The result is an awesome outdoor fun room that our family will enjoy for years to come. We highly and enthusiastically recommend Nickie Dibenedetto for such work.
I DO NOT recommend Aren Langland and his crew at all. Overall bad workmanship and took 4 months to repair a leaking roof and balcony only to have us call him for fixing their repair work multiple times since the roof still leaked. During last Sunday’s storm, we had pots and pan for water pouring from where they did “repairs.” Now we have extensive wall, ceiling and floor damage in addition to mold in areas they said they had fixed.
Also, shoddy paintwork and woodwork- painted over old paint and now the new paint is peeling. Anytime we ask to fix the issues, the answer is always that ‘the right way to do it’ is not in his budget.
They worked till they were paid and then hardly ever showed up to finish the job. Aren had zero oversight over his workers. We’ve had doors left open, missing keys , and thefts. We had to re-key the whole house again after they left.
Please contact me if you are planning to hire him and I will show you photos and videos of his work.read more

My parents used Big Jim on their house and recommended him to me. The current “Big Jim” is the third generation Jim to run the company, so he’s got tons of experience in all types of repair, construction, painting, and roofing. He hires only people he can trust and partners with other subcontractors that have proven themselves. I had a long list of renovations, and they took care of them all. I told him I want to keep the house’s original character, and he completely understood what I meant, even keeping the metal hooks that used to hold the window screens.\n\nAddress: 10615 Airline Hwy #143, Baton Rouge LA, 70816\nPhone: (225) 262-7949\nRecommended by: Leif Remoread more
