Repairing the staircase to my front door turned into almost fully replacing it. This was no scam or sales job- Rafael clearly showed me rotten wood stringers underneath the risers that I had asked him to replace.
He was thoroughly professional, skilled, courteous and efficient. The construction was finished the same day, with he and his partner working until 9:00 pm and still cleaning up everything and taking the rotted wood to the curb. The wood had to dry 7-10 days before being painted, and I thought "oh great, now I'll have to nag him to come back", but No- he showed up yesterday to complete the job. I am totally satisfied with the work, and would recommend him to anyone. I will definitely call him for future jobs.
