Recent Review: They go through the garage floor and put it underground. They were very clean and punctual. They were very professional and power washed everything before and after. It was perfect. We have recommended them and would definitely use them again.
Recent Review: The structure that our provider made is just lovely. It is elegant and much stronger and pleasing than the previous structure. This was a project that others had turned down. It was too small a job for contractors and too big a job for our local handyman. We are grateful that Herb agreed to tackle it. He is meticulous in getting a project done right. We are very pleased with the finished results. The only difficulty was that we had to help quite a bit to bring the project in on time. Some of that was because the project was more difficult than any of us imagined and it took more effort than one person could do. That said, my husband and I were quite willing to do that. I think Herb would do good work on any project, but for those heavy manual projects, I would recommend making sure there is an assistant or volunteering to assist him. Again, we are super happy with the end product! p.s. Cost of project includes materials.

Mixed, very mixed. The guy does great work, but he doesn't return calls. No I would not use the service again, I have tried but he doesn't return calls. Now I am using someone else.

Paul knows construction and works to best practice and knows and understands all codes. (He has a good and loyal crew.) He worked well as a team player with my structural engineer and with county building inspectors. Gives a lot of attention to special details and is very neat and organized. The dining room was a long project April to October and was plagued by the unusual spring and summer rains of 2011. They developed a tarp system to keep working and shelter our home. The crawl space at our house is horrible so those guys deserve a medal. Can handle an entire house, or come by and replace my hot water heater (last month) or re-do a bad contactors' heating/ducting job. Came on time and stayed on task 99% of time. Good communication skills. When something goes wrong, my first thought is to call Paul. Don't need speed dial as his number is memorized. If you watch Holmes on Homes on HGTV you will think Paul is his brother.

Work was done all in one day and was excellent. They had an "I can do it" attitude, understood well what needed to be done, and were very nice to deal with.

This company was very easy to work with. They did the design and got the permit. They worked within our budget and finished quickly. They went to the building department and got the building permit for the whole project in one afternoon! They worked with us on every detail that we felt was important and kept things moving and made great decisions for us when we were tired of making them for ourselves at the end. Our house is beautiful now; all of our friends who come to visit comment on how well it works and looks.

The owner came out first and looked at the project. Once we scheduled the appointment and they replaced our storm door. The owner came back with the crew and gave them the instructions to do the work. They had to shim the door to do the install and everything went well. The door works great.

Jeff arrived at 0800 per appointment and was ready to start. He took a quick look at the old storm door and the new storm door. He was able to remove the old storm door in about five minutes. We discussed installation of the new door and he verified I wanted the door handle on the opposite side of the previous door. That entailed some extra work for him but he seemed pleased to do it. After installation was complete he asked if I wanted the pneumatic closer attached and mentioned some people like to skip it. That was a good call on his part because I really like it better without the auto-closer. Then it was on to the hinges. He assessed the problem quickly, but didn't call me a doofus for installing part of the hinge upside down. All things said, it was a pleasure doing business with this company and would hire them again.
