Eric has done several jobs at our condominium. Trustworthy, reliable, and a real professional, Eric delivers what he promises. His advice and knowledge is valuable. He works closely with the client and does not go beyond the agreed budget which is rare nowadays. He renovated a kitchen; he installed new windows and replaced all the heaters. These are some of the major jobs that he has done for us. I recommend Eric highly without reservations.
I would not use any other contractor. Eric did a fabulous job on my kitchen renovation, and I asked him to help out with other projects such as installing new heaters and windows in my pre-war condo. During each renovation, I gave Eric the combination to the lockbox, and he could enter at will. He listens to his customer's needs, and he will tell you what can be done within your budget. He is honest and dependable.
'Front to Back Home Improvements ' built my sunroom in the fall of 2010. It is a very substantial addition which required architectural design, permits, roof work, sky light, foundation, framing, insulation, electrical, finishing, a tile floor, and energy efficient windows.
I found Eric to be easy to work with, always first understanding what it was that I wanted. He is dependable and trustworthy as a general contractor. During this project he made sure all of his subcontractors were likewise. Things were done for the most part on time (some weather related delays) and NEATLY which is important to me.
It turned out just how I wanted it !! The enjoyment I get out of this addition is way more than the fair price I paid for it !!
Whenever I need to improve anything on my house I call 'Front To Back' and get a timely response as well as a job well done.
Eric has been our Go-To-Guy in all forms of home renovation and repair for many years and two homes. Not only has he done excellent work on all the jobs I've requested, he spent quite a bit of time researching products for other "dream projects" of mine to let me know if they were affordable. He has been consistently flexible with his time and generous with his talent. I would recommend him to anyone looking not just for a good contractor, but a good reliable person.

Eric and his associates at Front to Back have been a great help to us as owners of a very unique home with lots of quirks and issues. (Lucky us!) For several years now, Eric has been our primary "go-to" guy for home repair and remodeling work. From emergency jobs ("Help! The skylights are leaking in the rain!"), to home improvement and custom work ("Hey, Eric, we have this idea for an old, glass-paned door we inherited, can we make a place for it to go HERE?" and, "We don't really need them, but wouldn't it look neat if we put up some old, distressed-looking wooden support beams up there in the ceiling?"), to every day repairs ("Uh, Eric, we have no hot water all of a sudden...) Eric has helped us!
His talents as craftsman and fix-it wizard aside, Eric is a genuinely all-around nice guy. He's friendly, personable, courteous, honest and very hard-working. He's also full of great ideas, creative solutions, and patiently takes the time to explain the situation at hand and goes over all the possible options with you.
We would recommend him without question.

Eric is dependable and meticulous in his work. My husband and I have worked for several years with him for small and larger home projects, and he always takes the stress out of the process, from start to finish. We feel lucky to have found such a good contractor.

I have used Front to Back Several time over the past few years. This is a list of the jobs I have had Front to Back perform for me:
1) Porcelain Tile installation, foyer and kitchen.
2) Drywall repair (several times)
3) Toilet Installation
4) Window screen replacement
5) Carpet Installation
6) Hardwood floor installation
I found Front to back on Craigs list. After interviewing several contractors to install tile in my foyer and kitchen, Eric struck me as very honest and fair. He arrived when he said he would and he was very communicative.
Each time I have worked with Front to back, I have been pleased. They show up when they say, (or they call ahead if need be) I have no problem letting Eric know where my hidden key is to my house. All of their work is done very well.
One day when Eric was over my house replacing my screens while I was at a funeral out of state, Eric noticed that my upstairs toilet was leaking from a botched repair I had done 10 years earlier. Eric took it upon himself to stop the leak, get the water cleaned up. I eventually decided to have Eric replace the toilet and have him do some drywall repair that was damaged by the leak.
I had Eric and his team out the week of June 25th to do a shower re-model in our house that involved removing and installing new tile, along with a new shower diverter, a corner shelf for the shower, and repainting the bathroom. From the first message he sent me when I reached out about an estimate, he was very courteous and professional. He was quick with his responses and returning calls. He was very dependable and punctual. His suggestions as well as helpful information was greatly appreciated. When he came to redo the bathroom, he was on time, dependable, professional, and efficient. He does great work and provides a great product. I will call him first for any future home remodels.
Found Eric by searching on line for a handyman/contractor, to make necessary repairs and upgrade my bathroom. From the very first message that I left him and a couple of other contractors he was the only one that responded within 24 hours and the only one with the most reasonable estimate to fill my budget. I am very glad that I chose Eric, he is very reliable easy going person very willing to please me as his customer, and did a wonderful job. His partner Joe, was also very good, reliable and a very nice person/contractor too. I know that they worked here in my home close to a month and I even enjoyed their company. I definitely will recommend Front to Back Home Improvements (Eric) to my friends and for my future home repairs. Thank -you Eric, it has been a pleasure.
