5.0 Sue H. Madison, TN

Fred Oakley is the best contractor we have ever worked with. He does what he says he will do, when he says he will do it, at the price he said he would do it for. He is also the *cleanest* contractor we have ever known! Honest, reliable, great communication, improvises when he needs to, listens to what the customer wants -- can't recommend him enough. Our bathroom (not remodeled since the house was built in 1960) is absolutely transformed, thanks to Fred. And a space which the realtor said absolutely could not hold a dishwasher--now has a dishwasher! We are able to stay in our house longer now with Fred's improvements, and we are grateful to him for his professionalism, his courtesy, his good nature, his expertise, his attention to detail, and his skill. Thank you, Fred.

We hired Fred for a bathroom remodel, adding several interior doors and drywall work. Fred was very professional and polite. All work was completed in a timely manner. He provided updates and pictures to show how the work was coming together while we were not in town.

5.0 Fred M. Gallatin, TN

Mr Oakley did a lot of drywall work, installed sliding doors, built a more efficient exit/steps to exterior, cabinets. kitchen wall tile and painting, some bathroom plumbing rework.

5.0 Jennie N. Hendersonville, TN

Fred was everything youâ d want in a contractor: (1) great communication; (2) SHOWED UP!; (3) outlined our project with completion dates and met expectations; (4) competitive pricing. We highly recommend him and will use him on future projects.

5.0 Michael Y. Hendersonville, TN

Kitchen Remodel - Fred did a great job and for an affordable price. I will be using his services again.

1.0 Lynn W. White House, TN

Fred was polite and attentive. However, DO NOT let him do tile or shower work. The drain was set improperly and not flush with floor tile therefore we had him redo it. Also, many wall tiles were crooked but he only agreed to straighten 6 of them! Within 6 months some tiles were loose and grout cracking. When we removed the loose tiles we discovered water damage, black mold & inadequate adhesive. In his defense, he said he wanted to make it right but by this time we had lost confidence. We hired someone else to come fix all issues. Basically, his attention to detail was lacking and we were left with the impression he had limited experience with shower tile work if any at all.

Response from Company:

Customer satisfaction is very important to us and we did what we could reasonably do to correct the issues at hand. When we were contacted the second time, We would have gladly corrected all of the issues but were not allowed to. Several attempts were made to communicate with them and there was no response. We have been doing tile work for many years and have many satisfied customers. I feel that unfortunately, for this job, we received defective adhesive which led to some of the major issues that arose. We now conduct quality checks for all our materials to insure this never happens again. We at Fred Oakley Construction Co. are committed to.

5.0 Kristin D. Hendersonvlle, TN

Fred was a pleasure to work with. He and his son were very professional. Modernizing 40+ year old bathrooms, he gave us everything we wanted. Came in on time and on budget (other than the changes I made). I would recommend him to anyone that wants work done. I will be calling him again when we decide to do our kitchen.

5.0 Sandra T. Hendersonville, TN

I have been envisioning how I wanted to renovate our master bath, how to restructure the shower and what style, colors, flooring and tile I wanted. Fred executed everything that I envisioned, and the quality of his work was outstanding. My master bath is absolutely beautiful. I would recommend him to anyone.

5.0 Robert T. White House, TN

They kept us advised as the work progressed, and always left the work site clean after a day's work. The project was finished well before the projected date of completion.

5.0 Shirleyanne D. Hendersonville, TN

Fred did a fantastic job installing my new bathroom. I wasn't sure where I wanted to put the shower, sink and toilet. Fred helped me with the layout of the bathroom. There were concerns with the plumbing and Fred came up with a solution, something other contractors were unable to do. If I had questions or concerns he took the time to explain them. He showed up everyday until the job was complete. He was considerate of other furniture in the work area and cleaned up after himself . I am very happy I found Fred on Home Advisor. My next project is the kitchen and guess who is doing the job.
