You set a time and he is there when expected. Easy to give instructions on what I want done and does a great job. He is a type of person who is a "Jack of all Trades". He can handle jobs outside and inside your home. His price is reasonable and I highly recommend him.

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
Mr. Scallan has done many jobs for me over the past few years. Recently cutting bushes, fixing gutters, changing boards on my garage. Had a leak in roof and he did a wonderful job fixing it. I had originally called a roofer who could not even found the leak. So he knows his stuff. Also is now helping me with my bathroom remodeling.

When Mr. Scallon came to give us a price, we asked that he include some type of drainage, tree trim, and tree transplant. After we discussed it, we decided to just have the drainage done at this time. One of the factors in this decision was Mr. Scallon's lack of insurance that would cover such a dangerous tree trimming job.  The drainage work was done when Mr. Scallon said it would be done. It was...

He always does a great job. Very reliable, which I appreciate when I can't be at the property to remind/oversee/etc. He's easy to communicate with and work with. I've thrown a number of different projects each way, and he does them well. Jack of trades.

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
