"When I have been able to get on his schedule, Waldir's work has been outstanding: He has exceeded expectations on a number of levels with unexpectedly creative, affordable solutions to various problems -- when others I had approached simply shook their heads and said they could not help. He has been able to work in my home as it was -- not commenting or complaining about all the items in the way of the work required, but always very positive of what needs to be done and how -- with a minimum of work required from me to set up.
Waldir also monitors innovations as they become available on the market, and has politely updated my own understandings of what can be done these days, and alerted me to things I might consider for future, such as a dehumidifier that (while being rather expensive to purchase) is exceptionally inexpensive to operate over its lifetime.
Just as important, I have been able to trust Waldir (who serves our community as a policeman, last time I checked with him -- so he is particularly knowledgable about which door locks are most secure, for example ... and as a result of his work, I am no longer worried about tiny screws falling out of my front door knob, resulting in the knob's pulling out while I was hurriedly trying to leave the house!) to work in my home unsupervised while I am out of town; on those occasions, Waldir has sent me photos of his progress for my peace of mind -- at the same time raising my anticipation to get home to better appreciate in person his accomplishments!
...In some respects, I am living in essentially a new home, thanks to Waldir -- returning from vacation to live life in an unexpectedly comfortable, lovely (e.g., with dimmable AND energy-efficient "daylight"-quality lighting that I can always adjust to suit my mood!) and much more space-efficient retreat that is even more enjoyable over the long term than my time away on vacation had been for a fleeting week! So Waldir has been a wonderful bargain and I look forward to his future work here -- whenever I can next get on his schedule."
