Tim McClincy is amazing! His enthusiasm for the work he does combined with years of experience made our lives and the house so much better. He worked hard to make sure that we understood the processes and that the plans for the updates were exactly what we wanted. Tim's suggestions were valuable in making the new materials look good with what we already had in the house for an overall feeling of harmony in the spaces. Tim's showroom in Renton is a great place to get ideas and compare actual products. He has his own stone inventory and tools for making countertops at his business location and stands behind his work. The workers were knowledgeable and professional. They were on schedule and cleaned up all debris from their activity when they left each day.
It was great having someone as experienced as McClincy's in our corner when dealing with the insurance adjuster. They also walked us through the process of getting everything paid for. It took a total of 5 months to complete the work but our house is gorgeous now and definitely no smoke smell. Watching everything in our house get thrown away or packed up and then stripped down was difficult. Jon and Danny were continually available to answer questions and take care of details. We even got help with picking out decor and colors and it all came together beautifully. The lost items were detailed in a list which made submitting to the insurance for reimbursement much easier. Moving back in went smoothly as every box was moved back to the room it had come out of and all other items put back to where they were before. McClincy's oversaw the removal of our piano, clocks, electronics and clothing. Each company performed the cleanup well and brought back to the house in great condition.
We were so amazed at the McClincy organization. The pure professionalism and knowledge of restoration after our home was damaged due to frozen pipes was the best. Tim, the owner and his team was superb "a true man of his word". The workmanship, friendliness and overall customer service was terrific. They took special care when packing and storing our items and always kept us informed of their progress, as we had to relocate our family to a hotel while they were working. We did some upgrades with them and love our new kitchen. We liked that they had a showroom so we could pick out our materials. We have found a place to shop for all our home improvement needs.
My home was flooded by a broken pipe under my kitchen sink. I called McClincy's Emergency Response and they were very calming to me and gave me great service on what to do while they dispatched their crew which arrived within an hour. When they arrived they presented themselves very professionally and were caring and polite. They were able to help me with my insurance carrier to get through their process. After everything was dry their project manager stepped forward to restore my house wonderfully. All the people were pleasant, on-time and very skilled. What was first a nightmare became a pleasant experience using McClincy's. Nice you have someone you can trust and count on.
My wife and I want to express our sincere gratitude for your recent remodeling job in our powder room. We are extremely pleased with the outcome and both agree this represents a new touch of elegance, will add many years of pleasure and pay back when we eventually sell our home. This recent work represents the fifth job you have completed for us over the past five years. The reason we keep coming back is based on several reason beyond quality of work. You do what you say you are going to do, your workers are polite, clean up and if anything is not right you make it right. We often recommend to our close friends if they need home remodeling work, be sure to have McClincy's give you a quote. You are not the cheapest, but the minimal difference in price has always been made up in the quality and peace of mind that you have continued to deliver. Having experienced the disappointment that is often typical with many home contractors, I believe the high quality of experience you deliver truly differentiates you and your company.
Our upstairs toilet overflowed late evening, water soaked the upstairs carpeting, and leaked through the floor, coming out of canned lights in the downstairs hall way below. We managed to shut off the water, dry up most of the mess, and telephoned a few companies 1st thing in the morning - around 9am. We reached McClincy's, and they had their water remediation specialist at our house by 9:20. They immediately tested to let us know where water had seeped, removed the counter top, toilet and flooring from our bathroom, set up equipment to dry out the water both upstairs and downstairs, in addition, the owner stopped by to review the damage, and let my husband and I know the necessary steps to clean up the damage. They worked directly with our insurance company as well. Once satisfied the water was removed, we worked with Randy to replace the flooring, a countertop and choose paint to repair the bathroom damage. In addition, because water had seeped through the downstairs ceiling, they replaced the canned lighting, removed and replaced the drywall, and repainted the entire downstairs great room, as it was all one color and open concept. They were professional and quick, the entire process took about 2-1/2 weeks, primarily because we opted to pay a bit more and upgrade the bath room flooring which had to be ordered. I would definitely use them again.
I had frozen water pipes in my rental home and I was out of town at the time and my insurance company could begin and I had to fight with the independent adjuster about getting reimbursed for loss rental income though it was clearly listed as covered in my policy. My insurance adjuster kept on telling me I had to get hired an independent adjuster locally that was difficult to work with. My tenants had to move out so repairs three estimates even after they had the estimate from McClincy's; which delayed my tenants from moving back in quickly. After several weeks I finally heard back from my insurance company adjuster who promptly paid the claim and authroized repairs. Thank goodness McClincy's didn't wait for my insurance company to issue checks or my tenants would have been out several months. In fact my repairs were completed even before I got an insurance check. Mcclincy's will ensure you are treated fairly by your insurance company!
Our bathroom floor had water damage. We called Fischer in June to come repair, and opted to use insurance to pay. We also request a few upgrades: use tile floor instead of vinyl (120 sq ft), install 2 pocket doors, and move a light-switch. They provided an estimate for all work, including insurance and upgrades. We signed and they ripped out the floor. It was weeks before they came to do more work. Supposedly they were trying to find shower tile to match what we had left after the tear out. In late August we finally got a change order that indicated they couldn't find the tile and needed to replace the whole shower. The change order also included some upgrades and the price seemed high, but the estimator assured me it was also an estimate and pressured me to sign so we could continue work. Since we had already waited over two months to have work done (living without a shower and toilet that whole time), I signed. The project dragged out for a total of 7 months. They told me to explicitly not pay until they finalized the bill, so I waited. I asked many times about it. Meanwhile, I had to take on the burden of managing the insurance payments because they wouldn't do the work themselves. Finally insurance was fully paid and Fischer told me to pay the exact amount of the estimate, stating it was a contract the whole time. Now I am reviewing in detail and found some items that were never completed (moving the toilet over 18" was one). They are refusing to take this off the bill, even though it was not done. I am also finding out that a subcontractor who came in to help later, because Fischer couldn't complete the work themselves, will be charging me pieces of the items Fischer is charging me. For custom upgrades (tile floor, doors, light switch) we are being charged $4300 by Fischer and several hundred by the subcontractor. It does not add up. Fischer has resisted to provide us with line item cost of materials and labor for custom work for 4 weeks now, even though that is part of the contract.
- Standing or pooling water

- Clearwater is clean water with no solids. It includes water generated by air conditioning units and water that goes down the drain while the faucet heats.
- Greywater refers to all other form of waste water except for toilet water. It possibly contains hair, soap particles, cooking byproducts and flakes of skin. Areas that have been damaged by grey water are at a mild risk of contamination.
- Blackwater is water that has come into contact with urine or fecal matter. Toilet water is considered blackwater. Blackwater can contain pathogens and is usually considered a biohazard.
- Clean and maintain gutters so rainwater flows properly. Direct downspouts away from the house.
