Mr. Helbert had done work for me previously as an employee of Mack Harmon Construction. Since Mr. Harmon passed away, Charlie has been freelancing. His work had been excellent, so when it came time to have work done on the kitchen, I knew who to call. He and his nephew arrived, took notes on all that I wanted done, and then called back with an estimate. They started to work the next day. Since I hadn't expected it quite that soon, there was a lot of moving to be done which Charlie and Ron did quickly and efficiently. There were some surprises in the kitchen: under the wall paper, part of the wall was covered in paneling, part was covered in unfinished wood and part was drywall. Charlie filled in the grooves and covered then sanded to give the walls a smooth surface. They used primer tinted with the desired color, followed by two coats of paint. Cabinet doors were removed, sanded and holes filled in to give me more choice in my selection of handles and knobs, primed, and given two coats of paint. They took down the ceiling lights and painted rather than just painting around the lights as others had done. Knowing that I intended to replace the countertops later, they removed the current backsplash and painted down to the countertop so there would be no repainting if the new backsplash proved shorter than the old. Trim around doorways was in terrible shape due to cats but it was sanded and painted beautifully. The whole job took a week, on and off as paint had to dry. They even came to work on a Sunday! In addition, Charlie took it upon himself to fix sagging drawers and to add braces to cabinet shelves as well as re-caulking the windows. They did a wonderful clean-up job as well. My kitchen looks fabulous!
