Karl has preformed several restoration projects on my 1929 English Tutor house. The house was built as the home for a local architect with all exterior woodwork originally stained and varnished. A previous owner painted much of the woodwork compromising the authenticity and aesthetic appeal of the structure. As an architectural historian and curator of American art theses alterations to the original character of the house were extremely unsettling. Karl replaced damaged timbers and stucco panels on all four façades of the house. His carving and attention to detail were excellent. Further he strove to provide an historically correct approach to all architectural elements, resulting in returning the appearance of the house to the architect's origianl intent. This coming spring I plan to have Karl address additional projects, which will require, carved timbers, stucco panels and masonry work. He and his staff are very professional, extremly neat and timely. I would not have the slightest reservation recomending Karl for any challanging, aesthetically sensitive projects.
