We needed to replace our kitchen window and on the recommendation of neighbors, hired Window World to do the job. On March 4, someone from Window World measured us for new kitchen windows. It was not until JULY 14 that they came to install the windows. The bow window was too small, but they made a temporary installation and ordered another. We made numerous calls and they always had an excuse as to why the new window had not come. Finally on September 17, 7 months after we placed our order,they came to install the 2nd replacement. It was too big! We had had enough. We left the too small window in place and refused to pay the balance owed. In the meantime, we discovered one of the lower windows will not lock. Do not order windows from Window World.

As a new resident at Oak Run, I was surprised by the unreliability of four or five local "handymen." Some would not return calls, while others took weeks to schedule service. Finally, I contacted Paul Berlo at A-Z Handyman Home Repairs (352-322-6232). Not only is Paul reliable in returning calls, he shows up on time, is extremely hardworking, and detail-oriented in the extreme. I cannot recommend him highly enough - especially for others in Oak Run who are having problems finding someone reliable!

BEWARE We wanted to have some landscaping done in our front yard. We got 3 estimates and though it was not the lowest, we contracted Terry O'Dell with Blue Creek Nursery Center on W Hwy 40, to do the landscaping. This company does a lot of work in Oak Run complex. On April 27, 2015 we gave him a check for several hundred dollars. He cashed the check the same day. Though full of excuses every week, he never showed up to do the work. He promised reimbursement of our monies but to date has refused to give us our monies back. He is not to be believed and is a very good con artist.
If you have had any dealing with this company, please contact Jim Burton, Oak Run's chief of security.

We used On Budget Tree Service to trim our two palm trees. We were extremely disappointed in the work that was done. They also put a hole in our lawn and tore up the grass with their equipment. Definitely would not recommend them. Joan O'Brien Crescent Oaks

I got a bid from (On Budget tree service) to trim my Oak tree I almost fell off my chair when I heard the price $750.00. I called another tree service the bid was $350.00. On Budget called me back to ask me if I wanted them to do the job I told them I hired another tree service she ask why I told her the price of the other tree service she said they would meet that price. I said no thank you. The other people did a great job. I would never recommend on Budget tree service.

I'm surprised at the negative comments regarding On Budget Tree Service. We used them for two jobs over the past year. The first was the removal of a tree about 15 ft. tall, and the second was the removal of a weeping yaupon holly (about 30 ft. tall), a medium sized palm and a couple of large shrubs. Teresa Wheeler, the owner, responded quickly and in person both times we called to request an estimate. She was also able to schedule the jobs to be completed within a few days of our call. For the first job, her estimate was about half the price we had received from another company. The first job was a small one, and two other companies we contacted for an estimate didn't even respond. We didn't contact anyone else for the second job because we were so pleased with On Budget the first time. The crew did a great job both times, leaving not a trace of debris in the yard. Teresa followed up personally to make sure we were happy with the work. We would definitely use On Budget for any future tree service.

We needed a gutter repaired following hurricane Irma. We called Friendly Home Repair, LLC at 352-857-9723. They came that day and did a very good job repairing the gutter and cleaning out the gutter system for a reasonable fee.

Used Jerry Martin Irrigation LLC for a tune-up of the sprinkler system. Jerry took the time to teach me how to set the panel properly and then he checked and re-aimed every sprinkler head. He also gave me an estimate to replace several heads that were leaking or worn out. I thought the estimate was high, and he said they could break this work into small jobs so it wouldn't break the budget. I was very happy with the results. He worked for about 30 minutes, was very thorough, and only charged a small fraction (1/6) of the amount I paid Massey to do the same job last year. If you have a sprinkler issue, you likely won't go wrong trusting this company.

I'm a new resident, after HOA approval for a fence I used DB Fencing. Dan Buch the owner was very professional, on time, and did a great job and his price was very good. I would highly recommend him
