    Renaissance Carpentry
    I called him out to take a look at an area of my fieldstone foundation where I taking in water, and where is some exposed wood framing.  He took a look and was more concerned that the concrete slab was pitching water toward the house. He made a quick patch to redirect water away from the house.

    Archadeck - Advantage Design & Construction
    Jim Finlay from Archadeck of Suburban Boston, along with Jay Hayden the carpenter selected by Jim, are amazing !  You might be wondering how I could detail out all the work done above.  It's all part of Jim's attention to detail.  He took my contract very seriously, and truly cares about getting the job done right and done the way my wife and I wanted.  All the work above was well documented ahead of time and copies of each addendum were given every time. 

    We picked Archadeck because of the many Angie's List awards and glowing reviews by members of the list.  We called one day in July 2010 and that quickly started the ball rolling.  He came to our house to see the existing deck and porch.  We then went to Burlington, to the show room, to review additional details about Archadeck and to review previous jobs, materials and looks.  Jim had no problems discussing lower budget options with us along with various other possible options.  I never felt that he was trying to "up-sell" me on anything.

    My wife was continually drawn to a particular previous job that Jim had done, not too far from our home.  I was surprised to have Jim offer to take us to the home to actually walk through the deck he built a few years before.  When we arrived at this total stranger's house, Jim pulled in right behind us, right on time.  It was clear that this previous customer was thoroughly pleased to see Jim and eager to share his experience and satisfaction with us.  We were there for about 20 minutes and it was like we were visiting an old friend.  We even saw a screen door that we liked so much, we insisted on having the same one for our porch, along with the sliding windows that this deck had, which my wife liked so much.

    The entire work was done over this past winter (which you may recall included record snow fall and a rainstorm in January or so.  The rainstorm caused much concern, because the roof of the house and the porch was not joined at this point and water could have leaked into exposed walls on the interior.  But Jay set up tarps and rigged up a proper protection from the heavy rain.)  The winter work saved us money, but Jay the carpenter had to deal with a lot of snow in his work area and the bitter cold.  They went the extra mile to snow blow out their work area (and our driveway at times) over and over again.  Jay and Jim are a fantastic team and work very well together.  Jim keeps the focus on what we want and the Code while Jay points out options and alternatives.

    During the entire project, Jim's communication with us was perfect.  He was courteous about his calling times, sensitive to our schedules and totally respectful to our wishes.  In addition, I can't express how grateful we are to Jim for helping us with the Town Wetland Committee process and the various permitting and inspections.  There really can be a lot of bureaucracy (in my opinion) with local government, and having an advocate for your project to help take care of it while we were both at work was a real blessing.

    At every turn, Jim and Jay stuck with us.  My wife wishes they did kitchens so she could hire them on the spot!  And now, I understand how that previous customer was so pleased to show off his deck to strangers and so happy to see Jim.  I keep Archadeck fliers on the porch to show anyone who is interested about Jim's work.  As you can tell, we are very happy with the work, and his work ethic.  5 months after the work was done, Jim called to say that he wanted to come down and re-torque the main hardware on the structure to make sure it stayed tight.  It was like a project reunion as he took pictures and then got into his overalls and under the floor to do the work.

    He was too busy this summer to join us for a few hours on our wonderful new deck, but he promised me that next summer, he and Jay would be by and I'll set up the grill.  My wife and I are looking forward to that.

    Perhaps some day, my wife and I will be that total stranger who will proudly show you their deck and porch and highly recommend that you hire Jim Finlay, Archadeck of Suburban Boston.


    Update April 2012

    My wife and I had noticed that the ceiling in the porch had buckeled in a few areas over the winter.  I called Jim Finlay at Archadeck and he was quick to come to inspect the ceiling.  Upon a detailed review, Jim quickly confirmed that the buckling was covered by the Archadeck Warranty.  He speculated that the use of finishing nails, to minimize the look of the nails, may not have enough strength to hold over the temperature change over the winter.  But Jim stressed, it didn't matter much to him what the reason was, that he was going to fix it right, and he did so right away.

    The ceiling was fastened with over 60 screws and then the holes will filled and and then repainted.  This all happened in only a couple of days.  You can't tell that anything was done from the original installation.  We are very pleased with the repairs and we paid nothing !

    No response; I guess they do not want my business.
