Recent Review: This review is for two jobs Jimmy and his crew did for me - a repair on our front steps / stoop, and an installation of Cambridge pavers on our 500 sf yard out back. If you want the short version: yes, hire him. The first job was tearing out a crumbling stucco'd / step at the base of our stairs and stoop into our house. Within 48 hours of calling Jimmy, he had come by and taken a look and given me a rough verbal estimate. Within 24 hours of that, I had an e-mailed quote that broke down the scope of work. Aside from the professionalism and timeliness of the visit and quote, let me also point out that Jimmy also talked me down from a potentially much larger job (and larger payday for himself). I had been thinking that we'd have to tear out the entire set of five steps as well as our stoop and rebuild / repour the entire thing. Jimmy poked around, asked some questions, and explained to me what he thought the main problems that needed fixing were. In his professional opinion, we could probably salvage most of the existing steps, as well as addressing the key problems, by doing a very thorough repair job. I ended up agreeing with this and that's the route we took. It is a rare professional who will tell you that you don't need his services as much as you thought, but Jimmy did that for me on his first meeting. Huge plus mark in his favor. The job ended up going smoothly, and he and his crew finished it in a day. I've attached some photos at the end of the review. This was $2,100 and took one full day. It went so well that when it was over I asked Jimmy to take a look at the backyard area and give me a rough quote for doing the patio (for what it's worth, I think his rough quote ended up within 5-10% of his final, formal quote). The second job was rip out a previously terribly installed set of bricks, level and prep the area, and install an approximately 500 square foot paver patio. The work was complicated by the fact that I live in Hudson county, where houses butt right up against each other (no side yard or alley to get to my backyard), making getting access to the jobsite a real headache. We ended up temporarily taking down a fence / getting permission to use a neighboring yard for getting materials in and out. Jimmy was patient and flexible while we coordinated a time to do the work that worked for them, too. This job ended up costing $7,400 and took a few days. Everything was done on time and the schedule that Jimmy had laid out, and everything looked great when all was said and done. With both these jobs, Jimmy and his crew were organized, efficient, and on-time. Jimmy's communication was excellent when I asked for quotes or got in touch about scheduling. He was also proactive in reaching out to me whenever there was some kind of unique wrinkle that came up with the jobs. Every job has one or two of these, and it's nice when a contractor will take a moment to bring you up to speed on what they've found, how they're proceeding, and getting your OK if it's any kind of decision you might care about. Overall, highly recommend Jimmy and the rest of his team.
