Recent Review: Jim did everything possible to accommodate my concerns as the project progressed. The house had old leaded-class windows from the 1920s. HEoM workers worked with me to retain the old windows (which I was simultaneously restoring in the garage) by fitting energy-efficient picture windows behind them on the outside. Jim searched around for exactly the kind of porch-skirting and extra-long siding that we wanted. He coordinated work with an electrician and me as we installed pipes and wiring for a central-vacuum unit at the brief time while sheathing was exposed but before Tyvek and siding went up. We also coordinated installation of downspouts with my work on drain tiles and catch basins. And Tim and John (the first-rate siding team that Jim contracted) thoughtfully notified me of cavities behind the house's sheathing that had no insulation, giving me time to stuff some back there before all was covered up again with new vinyl siding. Andy Davis is the foreman at HEoM, and is the most gentle, unflappable, highly-skilled home contractor that I have ever met. Their usual way of insulating replacement windows had been with fiberglass. However, when I asked that they use foam insulation instead, the immediate response was, “Of course!” (My recommendation is that others do the same with any contractor, given that it results in a tighter, quieter house.) As always, HEoM workmen kept communicating with us as our wishes evolved during the course of the project. HEoM is best know for its work in seamless gutters. Prior gutter work on the house had been done in a way that at one point channeled water under roof shingles and that placed a downspout behind a porch's center columns. Jim came up with elegant solutions to these problems, and did so in a cost-effective way that did not require replacement of all our gutters--solutions that retained the original gutter style but with downspout color that matched our new siding. Such “consciousness of detail” was evident at all times during the project. For example, one of the siders suggested that a strip of PVC moulding would add to the porch's appearance. We took his advice, and could not be happier. The unknown truth about HEoM is that the company has professional skills far beyond gutters and windows. In fact, if I were to be thinking about building a house, Jim would be the first person I would speak with. Oh, yes. And they stand behind their work! A window sash and 4 screens were replaced no-questions-asked, when we noted damage. They repaired a strip of vinyl siding that had cracked after the first winter, and then over a year later Andy fixed a replacement window that was malfunctioning. Each time their response was immediate!
