Jim and the James Gang rehabbed an old, dilapidated carport in our backyard and transformed it into a beautiful new living space. While several other contractors told us our only choice was to tear this structure down and re-build it, Jim immediately saw different possibilities, and was able to retain much of the existing structure and fix the structural deficiencies, which made working through the city's permitting process much easier.
The James Gang worked to replace retaining walls, tear out old concrete and put it in a new concrete floor, replace studs, install new siding, paneling, windows and doors. Jim is a laid back guy, but also an excellent communicator, and is devoted to good craftsmanship and getting the job done. The guys worked very hard, often putting in 10 hour days. The project is fully permitted and passed inspection by City of San Rafael Bldg Dept- Jim managed this entire process for us from start to finish.
It has been a pleasure working with Jim and the James Gang and I highly recommend their services. In fact, we are already re-hiring them to do a few other jobs on our property, including installing a new gate and replacing wood retaining walls.
