Extremely well! Fred tracked down and explained the causes of the rot, took apart the rotted areas, and removed the inadequate flashing, which was one of the major causes. He then replaced rotted trim and beadboard, designed and installed proper flashing and roofing, and painted what needed it. In all, an excellent job!!

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
Runoff from our large roof onto a porch roof below had been rotting cedar shingles, trim, and beadboard under roof shingles. Determining the causes of the rot was not easy and the repair was complicated.

The member had me reattach a light where it had pulled free from the garage wall. Then I replaced a really rotted piece of Fascia. Then fixed a bench that the arm rest legs had fallen apart.

Actually very busy at this time. Most of the Windows are in very rough shape. Will probably need more than paint. Putting up the boards was to help. Didn't expect a poor review for helping. Sorry?? May God fill you with His peace through Christ Jesus.amen

Fred came out to give me a quote. He gathered the information and we talked about a few options. It was raining when he came, so I had him step into my kitchen to continue our conversation. He said "God is good" and "There is only one God". He told me he would get back to me. He left and I never heard from him again.

Fred is into week 2 and is doing a great job. As the son of an expert Carpenter, I am very happy with all aspects of the work, especially the quality. One of the tough things I required was that he match the window casing in a breezeway to the rest of the interior of the house. Fred was very meticulous and exceeded my expectations on the window framing. If something can't be done, I think he will ...
