did a pressure wash on our driveway a few months ago, but after having our roof replaced recently, I noticed several spots on the driveway. These spots appeared right after the roof job was completed, so I am fairly certain they are the result of something connected to that work, and I am in contact with Aspen Roofing about ...more a reimbursement. At any rate,
came out and pressure-washed the driveway again, and he also pointed out spots on our patio that he believed were "tar and roof asphalt granular," so we had him pressure-wash that area, too. In addition, he touched up some of the stain on our deck that had been scratched off during the roof job. We also asked
to rehang the door to our kitchen pantry. The hinges on the door broke, and the replacement hinges the manufacturer sent us were a newer model, requiring drilling, etc., something I was not about to attempt.
' assistant did an excellent job of putting the door back in place. Finally, we asked
to look at the doors to two closets in our downstairs game room. They were recently replaced when we had new shelving installed, and we thought the doors looked just a little "off."
and his assistant spent some time down there, taking the doors off and putting them back up. After the first attempt, I thought everything looked great, but
wasn't satisfied, so they spent some more time, getting everything just right. That is typical of
and the people he employs. Perfection is always their goal.
My wife and I have used
several times over the years, and I'm sure we will be hiring him again in the future. In fact, we're always making notes of jobs for

has done work for me for close to 25 years. I have recommended him to most of my friends and family for additional work as well. His skills are varied and he will tell you if your project is something he can't take on. He has done major remodeling projects (gameroom installs) to hanging front doors. He does quality work ...more and will listen to your input. He isn't the cheapest around, but is responsible in his work."
"Job 1: He comes on time, does the work expected, & charges a very fair price. He is a perfectionist. I d recommend him to anyone. Job 2:
& his assistant,
, were here for 2 days. They arrived on time & did all the work
said they would do, at the price quoted us.
...more did a couple of extra jobs & didn t charge us. An example of his thoroughness involves our shutters. When
came out to the house (on a Sat) to discuss the various jobs we had for him, I showed him a nearly empty can of paint from when our home was built 13 yrs ago, & he took a sample of it (on a piece of cloth). When he showed up to do the work this wk, he brought with him a can of paint that perfectly matched that color.
were both very friendly & professional. When the job was completed,
presented me with a detailed bill & answered all my questions. My wife & I have already started our next "
's List" for future jobs we want him to do for us.
"It went really well. It took some time though. First
did the tear out work and then the rough in work (electrical panel, sanitary drain, load barring beam, electrical wiring, wndows and re-plaster). Then he went away while the plaster cured I had the kitchen, LR, DR, foyer & powder room painted. Then he came back and installed ...more the vanity, cabinets, island, wall outletss & switches and lighting. Then he had to go away again while the floor was installed. Then he came back again and installed interior doors, trim & baseboards. Also installed range & frig. Then we all waited a few weeks while my granite supplier fabricated & installed the counter tops. Finally he came back for the last time and installed the kitchen faucet, disposal & disgwasher. With all the different work crews involved I felt that time lost between consecutive steps was really minamal (except the granite install).
We're very happy with the job
did for us. He definitely exceeded our expectations. His range of construction skills (plimbing, electical, structural support, rough & finish carpentry, etc.) allowed us to get all our work done through one very compatent contractor. His attention to the small details and finished look was also way above that of most others. Also, his team cleans up as they go -- no
Construction was very professional in their work. The work was done in a very timely manner and as promised. Upon completion, the area was completely clean and free from any construction waste. I would definitely recommend
Construction. I will be using their service again in the near future.
stayed for a couple of hours, reattaching the kitchen ...more cabinet door (and checking all the other cabinet doors to be sure they were okay), fixing the light fixture at the desk in the kitchen, attaching the carbon monoxide detectors, etc. He eventually left to work on another job site, but
and Nick stayed at our house until around four or five that afternoon. I can't say enough about all three of these guys. They were all polite and friendly and very willing to answer any questions my wife and I had. They're all perfectionists, and they cleaned up after themselves, even doing things I really didn't expect of them. For instance, I took two hoses off hooks in our garage for
and Nick to use, and I discovered that when they were finished with the hoses, they had not only drained the water out of them, but they also coiled them and put them back on the hooks in the garage. Also,
took the time to mix several colors of grout to perfectly match the grout around the ceramic tiles he replaced in our kitchen. I would absolutely hire
again. In fact, my wife and I have already started making the list for his next visit. "
was extremely professional and courteous. I emailed him about my interest in having him complete an extensive "honey - do" list and I received a phone call within a few short hours.

and his team were such a refreshing change from this!
was almost always on time and, if he happened to be running just a few minutes behind, he gave me the courtesy of calling to tell me he would be 5 or 10 minutes later than expected. How nice! I found
to be extremely knowledgeable and his team was professional, friendly and respectful. They showed up for the job shortly after 9:00 a.m. and were working hard throughout the day until the job was completed at 6:00 p.m. The team was very considerate to wear plastic booties over their work boots while they were walking throughout the house, which I greatly appreciated. These gentlemen even did a very thorough job of cleaning up any messes that were made during the day. Upon their departure, they made sure that all of their trash and other ancillary items were put away in the trash instead of leaving it for me to clean up as I had experienced with other contractors. I cannot say enough about the professionalism displayed by
and the team. When we encountered a small issue after they had left,
promptly showed up the next day to fix it. He even showed up with a electrical cover for our laundry room and took the time to cut it to size and put it on. What customer service!
went out of his way to ensure that we were satisfied with the work that was done at our home. I find that it is truly the

and the team - thank you for being such outstanding examples of what contractors can be! My husband and I are always thinking of ways to improve our home and you will be the FIRST people we will call. A thousand thanks. God bless you! "
