Recent Review: The first part is repeated from above: "First, the workers built a protective frame around the pool. The roof of our adjacent garage needed to be changed to accommodate the porch's new roofline. Eventually, we had Jim's guys paint the whole garage-back-house. It was fascinating to watch the careful step-by-step construction process. Up went sturdy walls with insulation, double glass windows, roof, strong enough for solar someday, doors (including my choice, a front French door) with internal blinds, sconces and ceiling fans of our choice, outside lights and even a water bib right at my potting bench! Bill insisted on putting that together! The paint was carefully applied.""They put a tasteful amount of cement pathway at the back house, leaving a cutout I requested for small tree/vine." New criticism: Update, 8/06/12. The entire big house has now been painted by Jim's friend, Tim, a tireless worker. Working top to bottom, they had a roofer inspect the old roof. Upon analyzing that, they said, with repairs, it would give us five more years. (We were ready to have to reroof. Notice a certain quality there?!) So starting with the roof, they meticulously repaired everything they could find that was rotting or cracking, then, for painting, chose a special, tough undercoat, then painted very carefully. Also, that "pole" area (for draping shading material.) in front of the pool-house, has now been completed more beautifully than I could have pictured it. In a few years, it will be vine covered, but for now, they are putting up a material that partially shades, like the indoor/outdoor section of a nursery. Just what I pictured. There will even be a swing hanging from one side for our two-year old grandchild! There is question as to whether we'll get to flag stones planned by Jim or wait, now that our family is visiting. But I want to hand in this review. Do not hesitate to hire this company for a wonderful construction job. Jim is organized, professional, polite and not overly salesman-like. Bill and his roofers are great guys to have around for awhile! Jim breezes in and out to check on EVERY step and if something is wrong (like some electrical needed to be redone for the inspectors) it gets done with NO grousing. Pretty amazing, really.
