    Jacop, I have to say was one for the best contractor/hand man I've come across! Since he did most of his training in Italy, he learned the "old world" way. Jacop came to fix rotting wood on my doors and windows. During the process he would make suggestions on how to do things, and he would tell me from cheap to expensive and be very honest on which way to go. It was refreshing to have an honest person as they are very hard to come by nowadays. Jacop came in on time and on budget. Since he was so great, he will be coming back to do lots more work around my house to include refinishing my basement to putting up a fence. I have also recommended Jacop to my family members who have hired him to complete their master bathroom.

    I look forward to having Jacop come back to start all the jobs I have waiting for him!

    Jacop just finished our roof extension over our upper deck. It was a large job and Jacop and Blas did a wonderful job. Can't wait for summer to really enjoy it.

    Jacop redid pur porch posts and powerwashed the floor on the porch. He painted our crawl space door and changed the wood around it as it was rotting. The new frame on which the crawl space door sits was very well done. Thank you!

    Jacop was a pleasure to work with. He was flexible, communicative and brought lots of good ideas to the table. I'd gladly work with him again. Jacop worked on a project at my home that consisted of painting, tile work, wall removal and repair. He made a great competitive estimate, responded quickly when I emailed him, he communicated about timing and did an awesome job on the project.

    Back in 2007 we contracted Jacop to remodel our house.
    His price was very compatative, that we thought that the result might not be as we would hope. Jacop proved us wrong; not only did he transform our house, but he exceeded our expectations. The quality of his work, the passion that he has for his own creation is beyond and above any words that we could ever say. Jacop is a master of what he loves to do. He does not do it for money, although he needs it, but he does it becasue this is what he loves to do. I do not think that any one would ever match or come close to what Jacop can do.
    I wish him all the best.

    Jacob did a large blown-into walls insulation job for me. I wanted the walls to be packed with insulation - not just blown in. I had read that this increases the R-value. He did an excellent job that exceeded my expectations, has the ability to communicate with a customer when problems arise and goes the extra mile (if you can not understand his English [he's Italian] for complicated explanations of why something has to be done, he will arrange a time when his wife (American)can speak with you and straighten out miscommunication), is a pleasant personalty to work with, will not leave a job until you are satisfied (within reason - he has other customers too) and the job was priced BELOW other contractor estimates. In addition, he did extra work (for extra pay) = put in an access door to my bathroom tub, shaved off the bottom of a door that was hitting the heat register etc. He is VERY SKILLED. I am working class and grew up around and doing house projects. This man knows what he is doing and he knows building code requirements. If you need your walls re-plastered or patched = after he is done, you will not see the patch. I can not say enough good things about Jacop. I understand from one of his other customers that he is an excellent tile man = he is Italian; all the famous tile work done in turn of the 20th century Newport, RI mansions was done by Italian men, who were hired directly from Italy for the job. I have highly recommended Jacop to my friends - something I do not usually do.
