We asked Jon to build eve-pediments for the front and back gables of our 1899 house in the Mystic Connecticut Historic District. The artistry, workmanship and professionalism he displayed was top notch. Every detail was perfect. The project was completed on time and at the agreed price. We were very satisfied and would be happy to have him work here again.

When I was too busy to take on additional work, I hired Jon Day and his company to take on several residential projects for me, including two large exteriors, and several smaller interiors. He and his team did an excellent job, executed the work in a professional manner, and treated my clients like gold. He is a consummate professional.
