I hired George to remove and replace mortar around my swimming pool--a tedious and hot job. He was punctual, very pleasant and extremely professional. George apparently has high standards about the quality of his work. He was amazingly fastidious about all the details from the accuracy of color-matching to using masking tape and a special tool (instead of his finger) to keep his work as uniform as possible and the work area relatively clean. I was particularly impressed with how well he handled cleaning up after such a messy job. I doubt that many people, especially after a long, hot day, would put a high premium on this step. I especially appreciated his willingness to do secure the parts and repair my shower door, a problem that had just cropped up. The job fell just short of the 2-days he'd estimated but he threw in the shower door repair and parts for the price we'd agreed on. It's hard to put a cash value on someone's time and skill but, considering the quality of George's work and his attention to detail, I calculated the overall cost to be very reasonable. I also appreciate his discount to veterans.
