We hired Michael to put in hardwood floors on the upstairs of our house. Coming into the process, we knew very little about flooring, and Michael did a fantastic job of educating us on the different options available, their pros and cons, etc.
He met with us several times and at various locations (our home, a flooring store, etc) and was always very flexible and accommodating, even with his busy schedule.
Michael is really easy to communicate with, and we felt very comfortable having him working on our house, whether we were there or not.
Also, and certainly not least importantly, Michael does incredibly high-quality work. In a day and age where it's hard to find good help, and it's easy to worry about contractors cutting corners to save a buck, Michael is the kind of old-school, disciplined and talented professional who takes pride in his work and does things the right way.
We can't recommend him highly enough! Thumbtack maxes out at 5 stars, but Michael deserves at least 6.
