The provider provided an estimate, but insisted that permits and inspections were not needed. Based on what the other contractors who provided estimates told us, I called the Township. Permits were required, as were two inspections. Additionally,
was the only one of four contractors who wasn't going to anchor the deck to the joists in the basement.
was much less costly, but I had no confidence in them after the misinformation about the permits and inspections. Therefore we went with a much more expensive estimate and it turned out to be a very smart move as all permits, inspections and unforeseen circumstances were covered.

From start to finish the project was ahead of schedule. Crew was pleasant and rolled well with the few unseen circumstances like a dryer vent that needed moving and a misunderstanding about railings for the step. They responded beautifully in both cases and there were no added charges. We are very pleased.

The project went well overall. From the date of the first contact on May 27, 2011, to the first meeting with

on June 8, 2011, to the receipt of the first proposal on June 22, I found that the communication with the company was positive. When I had questions that needed clarification,

the blocks and completed three walls by the afternoon. On Wednesday, October 12, the mason and assistant returned to apply a parge coat of stucco to the exterior walls. On Thursday, I received a call from the secretary

, saying that they wanted to let the masonry cure a few days before doing the new porch floor. There was some confusion about their receiving my check payment which I had mailed. Subsequent checks were either delivered by hand to the office, or given to the crew at the time requested and stated in the proposal. The week of October 17 was the most stressful for me, because I had to be out of town on a business trip. I had hoped that the project would be completed before I left on the trip, but that did not work out. While I was away, the

crew did framing and joists on the porch, removed temporary supports, reinstalled the roof support posts, framed the cement walk and steps, and put the porch deck in place. They poured cement for the walk and new steps down to the garage. They put the existing railings in place. The week of October 24 I discussed with

I provided lunch for the crew on that Monday, and noted that they did a good job of rebuilding the railings, painting, preparing the steps and grading the ground and spreading the remaining stones.

There were some delays during the week of November 7th, due to schedule conflicts and rain. On Wednesday
