Work Completed Date: March 06, 2012
Hire Again: Yes
Approximate Cost: $1,500.00
Home Build Year: 1961
Description Of Work: I contacted Harold to come out & give estimate to replace kitchen counter tops. Once here I had him also give me a estimate to replace oversized bathroom vanity & install new bath sink.
Member Comments: Harold arrived on time & was very professional.  He gave me a estimate that was in line with other estimates I had received. I gave him a deposit to replace both kitchen counter tops & bathroom vanity. He called when materials arrived (within 2 weeks/ as he had said) & we set up time to install. Once again he arrived on time to complete both jobs....they look wonderful! He did such a good job my husband asked him to also come back to do a backsplash. I can't tell you how much I am impressed with this gentleman & his work. He listened to what I wanted (instead of trying to tell me what I wanted), gave wonderful advice & is a great craftsman. He is very detailed & works extremely hard. I live in a 1960's house; things in this house are built to stay..he chugged through it all(bless you Harold). My kitchen & bath look brand new. My neighbors have also hired him to remodel their bathroom. I would not hesitate to call him again.  Thank you Harold!

Work Completed Date: July 01, 2012
Hire Again: Yes
Home Build Year: 1960
Description Of Work: 
I would like to say Harold is one of the nicest people I ever met. 
I had laminate counter tops and a tiled back splash put in. 
Harold came to my house and showed me samples of laminate.  I couldn't make up my mind and he suggested I call the different laminate companies for bigger samples.  Harold has so much patience.   After I picked out my laminate and tile, Harold gave me an estimate and that was the final cost.   Harold immediately ordered the laminate and as soon as it came in, he was able to install it.   
Harold is very meticulous in his work.  He does a wonderful job.    I am so happy with the way my kitchen looks. 
Harold also noticed my refrigerator was leaning.  He actually staightened it up for me.  This was above and beyond because he didn't  even need to move my refrigerator.
I would definitely hire him again and I would also  recommend him to someone else.

Work Completed Date: June 17, 2013
Hire Again: Yes
Approximate Cost: $7,000.00
Description Of Work: Harold refaced all the cabinets and drawers in my kitchen
Member Comments: Harold did an awesome job! His quoted price was lower than another quote I had gotten, yet the work he did was A+++. He really paid a lot of attention to detail and made sure everything was just right. One of my cabinets was pulling away from the wall, which I was not aware of, and he repaired that while he was refacing it (no extra charge). One of the new doors had a hairline crack in it that I would not have noticed right away, but he arranged to have it returned and replaced, again no extra charge. The only negative is that now my cabinets look so much better than the rest of my kitchen that I am going to have to consider replacing the countertops too. I will definitely have Harold do that work too if I decide to have it done.

Project: Install Laminate Countertops
Comments: Harold helped me pick out the color and texture of the countertops, helped me select the tile work, repaired the under the sink cabinet and was helpful with everything. Completed the job on time and cleaned up after himself. He also moved a stand mixer on and off my counter top because it is so heavy. My kitchen looks fabulous. He is truly an expert and a real pro.

Formica counter

Review by Dan M. in Mount Holly, NC
Project: Install Laminate Countertops
Comments: We recently purchased a front loading washer and dryer and wanted a counter top installed over the appliances as a folding area. There were many angles and moldings that had to be accommodated but Harold Hickson told us it would not be a problem. In less than a week he had the frame finished and installed the laminate on site to insure a perfect fit to the walls. The project came out perfect and we cannot say enough good things about the work he did in our home. This is a true craftsman! His cost was less than half of the estimate received from the Home Improvement stores and included the installation!! Dan M. Mt. Holly, NC
