    Simpson���s Painting and Repairs
    Rashiek and Kiara Simpson are wonderful to work with. They both were very professional and were very patient in working with my mom. Even with changes they completed everything that she asked for in a timely manner. Yes we will be hiring them again for any of our future projects.

    All American Remodeling LLC
    If you want a contractor who is professional, on time, does beautiful work, leaves no mess and has a great price, hire them! The roof they built over my patio looks like it came with the house, will definitely hire again.

    CertaPro Painters�� of Reading
    Estimating, scheduling and painting were all done quickly, cheerfully and professionally. Ben, the estimator took pictures and, using my list of the items to be done, gave us a great price on the 40 hours of work needed. We built our home in 1972 and added a carriage house, barn and bucket truck building over the past 12 years; Ben's estimate completely agreed with mine (one item was left off my estimate and two 'barn doors' were included in Ben's by my not being clear). Emailing items to be painted left no doubt what was covered in the contract; being certain of paint colors before painters arrive with a gallon of each color is important too. Choose your paint colors by painting a large piece of cardboard painted in what you think you'd like; a tiny paint chip is worthless. If you use your local Sherwin-Williams store regularly they might mix you a quart of inexpensive paint for free. I emailed my list of work to be done with the Sherwin-Williams color numbers; the supervisor arrived with my list printed and we went from door to door in three buildings, and the three windows on our original house. Read CertaPro's requirements carefully. We did such a through job of trimming bushes and cleaning surfaces to be painted that we got a bit of additional work done without affecting the contract. I replaced brick molding while they were painting, but with our experience coordinating contractors we understand how to avoid interfering with other workers. We'll be contacting CertaPro again; although most things are maintenance free, the house is getting old. CertaPro will paint our aluminum siding and guarantee the results. I've attached a horrible old 'before' photo. When I've taken an after photo I'll add it to this review; the improvement is teriffic.

    New Castle Lawn and Landscape Inc

    We worked with Newcastle and another potential contractor on design ideas for the rear of our home which had a very basic concrete paver on sand patio.  Newcastle correctly identified the need to build a foundation for the upper level of the patio; consequently we were confident in their abilities to properly construct the project.  This company was very easy to work with.  We arranged the projects in several contracts and they worked with us on contract terms. 

    Key project elements were the construction of the patios and a pergola and landscaping a steep hillside area to the side of the house.

    They excavated and prepared the earthen base; installed geotextile fabric and 2A modified stone in compacted lifts for lower patio; install 1 inch layer of washed sand; install Techno Blu random pattern with 6x6 border on curved walkway at side of the house. Install brick edge restraint and tan colored polymer sand.  Installed three stone veneer pillars for pergola posts.  Excavated for foundation of patio and poured footer and set block foundation wall.  Poured concrete slab for upper patio.  Installed Techno blu45 pavers in mortar bed on upper slab and edged with Venetia.  Set Techno Rocka steps.  Stucco on outside of patio block foundation.  Upper Patio was 20 feet wide by 15 feet deep and approximately 2 feet above surrounding grade.  Lower patio was approximately 24 feet wide by 15 feet deep.  Walkway is approximately 3 feet wide by 30 feet long. 

    The pergola is white oak construction rough cut 20 feet wide by 17 feet deep including white oak leger board set in cut out of vinyl siding.  Posts are 6x6 oak, with 3x8 rafters and 2x3 purlins.

    We contracted the three large trees but did the remainder of the plantings ourselves.  We also plan to finish the edging between the gravel drive and the landscaped area ourselves to save some money. 

    Final comments:

    We have in the past done all of our own landscaping and outdoor work, but this project was a little different due to the slope of the ground around the house, the masonry work and the size of the pergola.  Brad Stephenson was a pleasure to work with and very accommodating in the design process, and worked through a number of revisions with us. The work took about two weeks to complete except for some later work on the stone steps to the side of the project (had to wait a couple weeks on material delivery). The scheduling manager was good to work with and responsive to our needs.  The field staff were conscientious, workmanlike and kept their materials and equipment neatly stowed at the end of their work day.  The quality of work is very good and we are pleased with it after 6 months.  We expect to have New Castle back out to do some cleaning and sealing on the masonry and pergola and to work with them on a fabric placement under the pergola for shade management.

    This was the most expensive project that we have ever contracted.  I should note that I believe that the cost is competitive based on preliminary quotes from another contractor.  I rated the price good for this reason.  It is possible that we could have gotten a lower price but I don't believe we would have saved significantly with any other competent contractor.

     We were pleased and would recommend Newcastle to others for hardscaping and/or landscaping work.

    Schumaker Construction
    One hail storm and the fly-by-night contractors circle like vultures. They bring their own certified appraisers. Getting the contract is one thing; getting a quality job done in a reasonable amount of time is an entirely different matter. When our daughter called for a referral I didn't hesitate to recommend Schumaker Construction.
    Schumaker Construction has completed three major projects for us on time and within our budget. We knew that we could depend on Dave to replace a roof and some aluminum siding, without worrying about the new buyer, and our daughter, not being satisfied. The crux was, the house had a commitment to buy and settlement was only a few weeks away. Our daughter gave Dave a call (I only talked to Dave once) and the job was done. Thanks Dave.

    Schumaker Construction
    A valuable vehicle, regardless of age or size, must be garaged to keep it functioning and looking good. Spending more on a garage than the vehicle is worth might pay off long term if the property value is increased, but we wanted to keep the cost of the garage close to the value of the bucket truck. Schumaker Construction was spot on.
    We decided on the location to start with (obviously); A 20' x 28' building sounds small, but it looks huge when laid out. I removed two 10" trees and roots, and everything looked great. You would think undisturbed red clay soil would be firm enough to pour a foundation, but there were deep roots and several cave-ins before we got below the frost line. Dave decided to go ahead with the 'poured in ground' footers (no forms), and absorbed the cost difference in the extra yard of concrete.
    A spring was found in the back corner; one of those kind that seeps water when it rains. It rained! For days. Dave added an unplanned drain at floor level and we paid the moderate difference. Block was laid by Dave, two masons and Dave's son. This is the third significant project Schumaker Construction has done for us and we've gotten to know the principals of Schumaker Construction.
    To achieve the 13' ceiling to accommodate the size of the truck we used a 5' block 'foundation' and 8' 2"x 6" walls. (The actual foundation was poured.) I lifted the wall sections to the top of the block walls with a crane attachment and before I had the truck put away the sheathing was done. Sheathing and roofing are 1/2" ZIP System® panels. It provides the strength of ordinary 5/8" sheathing and is impervious to water and wind (with all edges taped). So we have a garage that is air and water tight. A valuable vehicle with dozens of switches, solenoids and hydraulics needs protection, from humidity especially; the garage varies between 60% and 70% year round without dehumidification. Irregardless, we installed an 80 pint unit (the garage is over 8,000 cu.ft.) That GE unit works down to 40ºF. We needed it this past summer, when the units in the house, carriage house and barn second floor ran for the entire season.
    I decided on 24" centers for the roof trusses. That is common practice, but I've always used 16" centers; it saved us $735.00. This is a bid job, but we provide the specifications to the builder before he submits a bill and starts the work. All phases of work were paid for after completion of the work. Dave Schumaker built us a four car, two story garage (carriage house) a little bit at a time, since we had money coming in, well, a little bit at a time. Our house, carriage house and barn (Schumaker built) all have 5/8" roof sheathing on 16" centers. But I have researched global climate change for twelve years and it is coming slowly but surely. It has been going on for 400,000,000 years and there is nothing that can be done about it. I don't believe that we are going to have 4' of snow on our roofs ever again in my lifetime and I've put my money where my mouth is. Sure enough, with over a foot of snow still on the roof Berks county was expected to get another foot of snow. It didn't happen, but I measured the bow with snow on it - maybe 1/32"; after the snow was gone the sheathing is perfectly flat. Our house, with 5/8" sheathing on 16" centers has a permanent 1/16" bow between the rafters.  I have a roof rake for the greenhouse, so it is possible to relieve some of the dead load if it becomes necessary.
    Dave's mason's great ox of a helper broke a leg riding (falling off) a motorcycle. With jobs ahead of him it was not possible to have that mason do our job. Dave laid a smaller floor for my friend's garage, so I was relieved when he acceded to doing our floor. A 20' x 28' floor is within Dave's capability; 10 yards of 4,000 strength concrete is a tough job. That is 6 inches of high slump concrete; not a job for someone who isn't in great physical condition. The empty truck weighs over 5 tons; rolling 5 tons, with another 650 pounds of winch, I beam, tools and me. The finish is excellent; the 10' wide overhead door seals perfectly along the entire width of the sill. Part of that is due to the entire structure being absolutely square; I'm talking within 1/16 of an inch. The foundation is still perfect after the harshest winter that we have had in 40 years, but there is a hairline crack across the middle of the floor. Here is the thing: no mason will pour a 20' x28' slab without control joints unless you tell them not to. We don't like crack control joints; you are just creating a crack that fills with dirt, catches on a mechanics creeper, etc. But customers complain if they see a crack. Ten yards of concrete without a crack was a lot to hope for, but a tiny crack is far preferable to control joints.
    To help keep the building cost down my brother and I did the roof. The  ZIP System® doesn't require roof felt. Homeowners and contractors don't seem to understand the importance of roof felt. A mineral roof is there to protect the waterproof sealer (asphalt roofing paper or in our case the  ZIP System® panels). I've placed my faith in Dave's ZIP System® and went without the roofing felt. I didn't even ask if a waterproof membrane is required for the eaves. We are not going to have an ice dam at the eaves with a pool of water dammed behind it; the building isn't heated.
    With the Overhead Door Company of Reading door installed the building looked unfinished even with a scratch coat and brown coat applied to the concrete block. Dave was there, his helpers were game so I decided to go ahead with the stucco ahead of my initial plan. The roofing and dutch lap sheathing looked so great it would have been a shame to leave it like that for a year. Dave got white Portland cement, stained the mix to match the siding and the end product looks beautiful. An industrial looking steel building would have been an eyesore on a residential property. Our nice bucket truck garage, with three tab shingles, dutch lap siding and stucco below go with the other structures. We couldn't be happier... well, maybe if I insulated it.

    An error was made regarding the window treatments and removing the hardware.  
    The company had painted the kitchen and family room prior to this job. Had done a wonderful job.  Only problem is that we can't open the kitchen windows because they were painted closed.  
    The deck job that was done by the company is chipping away.  Were told they would be back to finish the project.  That hasn't happened.

    Schumaker Construction
    We contacted the builder thru a lifelong friend. David had built a garage to replace a too small garage for them with a master BR on the 2nd floor. I made a Photoshop 'picture' of both projects and drew sketches of the 2 floors with dimensions and materials that we wanted used. David met with us once, then returned the next week with a materials list, architectural drawings and gave us contract price. Both projects were completed within our budget (We made no changes after contract was signed.)Excavation was done by the builder. I was amazed at how carefully he measured the final location of the structure, trench and footers. The result is the foundations are solid and there is no cracking in the garage floor (common occurrence). I installed drywall in both buildings and the walls, ceilings and floors are all square. Once the foundations were built framing went extremely fast. We left 1 day and returned home to find the 1st floor floor completed; no sheathing, but it's pretty impressive to see 3 men complete the walls of a large structure like our barn or garage in 1 day. Both structures were built using manufactured beams for floor joists. Those wooden 'I beams' save money and are stronger than a comparable solid wood joist. Dave is a master builder when it comes to framing; the semi-vault ceiling in the second floor of the garage attests to that. Equally impressive is the use of manufactured beams. We have a garage and barn with no columns to bash a car door into, or prevent me from backing an implement off to the side of the tractor parking spot. The garage has ordinary three-tab white shingles to match the house. The barn has beautiful five-tab slate-like shingles. We specified 5/8 in. sheathing for the roofs although half inch is typically used for projects in our price range. Despite that Dave was able to build 2 structures for considerably less than we would have paid if we were able to get a builder competent to build advanced projects like we had in mind. The home builders I spoke to aren't interested in building barns or garages, and our projects were too advanced for remodelers that I spoke to. Gutters, fascia and siding were also completed very quickly and professional with all the right tools and a lifetime of experience. Dave brought samples for the garage and we choose the color and style that went with our original house. The barn had several color changes prior to completion but we knew the deadline for making selections so there was no costly delays. For example, the barn doors turned out so beautiful that I varnished them (I did all painting for both projects with Dave's guidance) instead of painting the barn red as planned. We could not be more pleased with both projects. They were built exactly as we had envisioned, at a price that we could afford with the best materials we could find. We get compliments, sometimes from complete strangers. Even the township building inspector and county assessor were impressed with our projects.
