"We were lucky; John showed up promptly, and he was a helpful professional in every respect. After a careful inspection of our existing siding, he asked us what our perceived needs were. We had ben told by two previous contractors that a leak between the attached garage and the house would require removal of all existing siding on the entire house, followed by a Tyvek wrapping. This would be followed by putting new siding, etc. on the entire house. These were both pricey, (15K) proposals, just to fix a targeted small leak. ($$$$$$$)
John said that overall, his inspection revealed that our existing siding, etc. looked to be in very good shape, with the exception of that small portion of the exterior wall between the house and garage.
Get this; he suggested that the most prudent and cost-effective remedy for this situation was the careful removal of the existing siding only on that wall. The wall would be then wrapping with Tyvek and the original siding would be re-installed. Any siding damaged during removal could be replaced with existing siding taken from a portion of our house that is obscured from view. Cost? less than 10% of the other two estimates ($)
How refreshing it was to meet a contractor who is concerned with the actual needs of a customer, rather than making a profit off of an unsuspecting client by charging them for doing extensive,expensive, and unneeded work. If I could give him 6 stars, I would."
