Well, it went quite well.
(owner) was able to do magic to this house. Picture a brand new house in a previous built house.... That's what we have. From a state of the art kitchen and bathrooms to an incredible open floor plan, to amazing closets (including a custom shoe closet)! He really listened to our wants and needs and transformed our house into an amazing place! The landscaping is out of this world! We actually miss the
crew, as they were professionals all the way!

I've done work myself and with interior designers on different projects (who also use L&L, by the way) and that is for good reason: Go to the fancy showrooms, play with the lights....THEN go to Lighting & Lamps -- they may not have it hanging up, but I'll bet they know all about it. It's just 2 guys, Chick (short for
) and
, who both know their stuff and want to help you out. It is the 'personal touch' that keeps people coming back to this place!!

Words cannot describe the astonishing outcome of this project. To sum it up – my house is gorgeous! I never thought it could look as magnificent as it does today. And, everyone who worked on the project was fantastic. The workers arrived early in the morning and stayed until late afternoon/early evening. They were professional, polite, respectful, and trustworthy. The yard was picked up and the driveway swept daily.

handled this large project seamlessly, from the expected to the unexpected and with a project this size on a poorly maintained house built in the 1880’s there is always the unexpected. As the project started I thought I would have a million things to worry about, but that was not the case.

was either on site daily actually working on the job or checking on the work that had been done. He explained what was going on and patiently answered my many questions. When it was discovered the gas line needed to be moved to accommodate new front steps (one of the unexpected)

handled all of the arrangements and communications with the gas company and dealt with the related glitches. First, work began on the repointing the foundation. This involved chipping out all outside mortar joints and repointing with iron clad mortar. I could not believe how quick the mason worked chipping out the old mortar and pulling the many weeds growing near the foundation. Once the repointing began I immediately started to receive comments on how terrific the foundation looked. A cinder block section of the foundation which did not match the rest of the foundation was replaced with a couple of pieces of the old granite from the front steps. The foundation is now matched around the entire perimeter of the house. Next the house was stripped to the sheathing in sections and that section repaired and wrapped in Tyvek vapor

before moving on to the next section. If a section could not be completed by day’s end that section was covered tightly with a tarp. I never had to worry about a section of the house being open for any period of time. After the house was stripped and wrapped, the renewal really began. The house was sided with red pre-primed cedar shingles and they are beautiful. The rows are perfectly straight on a house I am sure is not level. The shingles were weaved and flare out at the bottom. The fascia and soffit boards were replaced with Azek and look fantastic. The fascia and soffit boards have become a feature of the house. New gutters were installed. Simultaneously, twenty two new energy efficient windows were installed some requiring new frames. Window sills were patched or replaced on other existing windows and all the window cavities were insulated. PVC trim, band molding and drip edges were installed on all windows. The front porch and steps were completely removed and rebuilt. The front porch and steps are exquisite. A new concrete foundation was poured for the new blue stone threads which were laid using a picture frame pattern. Cultured stones were used on the risers and were placed in a random pattern that looks fantastic. New colonial posts, pine board ceiling and crown molding, were installed. Decorative corbels which were saved from the original porch were reinstalled after they had been stripped to bare wood and repaired. Two exterior doors were reframed and new exterior doors installed. The new pre-primed red cedar shingles were painted one color with 1 coat of oil based primer and 2 coats of latex paint. The trim was painted a second color and the doors a third color. The downspouts were painted 2 colors to match the trim and house colors – a great idea as the downspouts blend beautifully with the house. A new deck and staircase was added at the rear of the house. The deck was framed with 2x10 pressure treated timbers and Azek was used on the decking and for the rails. Cedar lattice was installed to the underside of the deck. New electrical circuits and wiring for new exterior lighting and outlets were installed. Four exterior lights at doorways, 3 motion sensor lights for driveway, and 2 exterior outlets were installed. And the house was insulated blow-in insulation. Unrelated to the project, but adding to the drama, two separate plumbing problems occurred during the project - an old bathroom sink pipe sprung a leak and a section of the main outgoing sewer pipe also spring a leak. Both needed to be replaced and

’s commitment and dedication to the project as well as his attention to detail is the reason this project ended with my house looking gorgeous. From choosing material for the new front steps to choosing paint colors I was never alone. He made a house that is over 100 years old look brand new with 1880’s charm.

Before Angies List you had to get references to find a decent contractor. Well I lucked out. I found

and now I can spread the word even faster. This is what you look for when you want something done to your home. The company is small and with that you get very personal service. They are thorough and the craftsmanship is second to none. I highly recommend using them for any project!
