DESCRIPTION OF WORK
We hired James Michael Kowalewski (aka Jim) from Kowalewski Engineering & Contracting to do a full renovation on our Canton rowhome. As general contractor he oversaw: all demolition, structural engineering, framing, HVAC, plumbing, and electrical wiring. He hired subcontractors for the HVAC, plumbing. Homeowners did painting, kitchen cabinets, HW floors and we ended up hiring a separate contractor to finish windows and siding.

As stated on the other review, I have just been notified of this review. Again, I dont like airing issues specific to jobs since they are very dynamic and takes a lot of work and cooperation on both sides. That said, this specific job was a full 2 story and added 3rd story on an historic house in Canton (Baltimore). The house is over 130 years old. It was also a very detailed bank loan with indepe...
