In 2010, a year after my husband was diagnosed with Lou Gehrig's disease, he and I met with Scott McClurg to discuss how to modify our home to accommodate our changing needs. My sister and brother-in-law had been extremely pleased with renovations McClurg had done at their residence 12 years prior and again in 2003, and many of the members of the community of ALS patients and their families, with whom we met monthly following my husband's diagnosis, recommended that we contact McClurg to create our handicap accessible space. Once we realized that building an addition to our modest, two-story home was the most logical choice for us, we felt compelled to work with the company we believed was most qualified to do the job well. Overwhelmed and unsure of our needs, our family was guided through the decision-making and construction process with ease. My husband, who typically insisted on being in charge, felt so confident in the ability of every craftsman who worked on our project that he readily relinquished control. The contractor was respectful of our requests concerning the time that work would commence each morning, diligent in keeping our house as clean as possible every day that workers were on the premises, and consistent in his efforts to keep us apprised of the progress being made. The addition, completed on schedule, became the perfect sanctuary for my husband. It included a closet and bathroom, was large enough to house the increasing amount of medical equipment he required without resembling a hospital room, and contained an elevated fireplace, suggested by McClurg's project consultant, which provided warmth and an ambiance that my husband enjoyed so much, at first from his recliner, then from his wheelchair, and finally from his hospital bed. A sliding glass door to the ramp allowed any available sunlight to bathe the room, making everyone who entered smile. As I explained in a letter I wrote to Scott McClurg after my husband lost his battle with ALS, our addition was the brightest spot during our darkest days, both literally and figuratively, and I will forever be grateful to everyone at McClurg for creating such a beautiful, comforting space. One day, after my husband's condition had deteriorated to the point that he needed a bipap machine to breathe, we lost power during an autumn storm. In panic mode, I called 911, and after the emergency workers set up a generator on our deck, but were unable to restore electricity to the addition, I called McClurg to ask for the phone number of the electician who had worked on our project. Within a half hour, the electrician arrived at our home, followed a few minutes later by Scott McClurg. They demonstrated, once again, how to reset the circuit breaker, and Scott then assured me that he was always just a phone call away. I found McClurg Remodeling and Construction Services to be outstanding in terms of expertise, attention to detail, and customer service. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the company to anyone seeking quality work.
