Problem solved: Raising a sunken floor

Problem solved: Raising a sunken floor

This month, we’re spotlighting a review from member Laurye Tanner, who shared great details and photos about her flooring project by highly rated Advanced American Construction of Corrales, N.M.

Here’s what Tanner had to say about her experience:

When George Chrzanowski came out to make a bid, he gave us solutions to problems when we thought we knew what to do. His ideas were much better, and he saved us a couple of thousands. His bid was the lowest. Even while he was working on our place, if a problem came up he talked to us with a solution, such as putting extra support under where the Kiva fireplace would be built. If George tells you how something needs to be done, listen to him. He knows what he is talking about. He did a fabulous job. I knew I chose the right contractor when the first thing he had his men do was put down floor protectors and hung plastic to try to keep dust from the rest of the house. George works right along with his men. They all worked hard and long each day. They cleaned up their work area each day before they left. The floors, walls and windows are beautiful.

I bought a Kiva fireplace kit and one of their men installed it. The person who was supposed to do the stucco came over with an attitude and started jacking up his bid. We asked him to leave and called George. George was able to come over the next day to start the stuccoing process.

I told George he is like Walt Disney and his Disneyland — George makes dreams come true.
