Walter is a true professional, very skillful and precise to detail, as well as a gentleman. I hired Walter for a smaller project of reseating an exterior back door. He met me at my home to look at the task and give me a price which was competitive to the other professionals on this site. He was able to confirm right away that we needed to reinstall the door with the proper support. He told me what materials were needed and I went to Home Depot that evening to pick them up. 10 minutes at HD and I see Walter loading a couple sleds with material for another big job. I say hello and he stops everything he's doing to help me run around the store to gather the material needed for my project. Two things should stand out to someone hiring someone for a job. 1. This guy works and he must be good to get a project this size and 2. His selfishness in taking the time to help a client gather the right stuff.
He shows up on time for our appointment after first calling me 30 minutes prior to meeting and says he's on his way. He was very prepared and put down proper drop clothes to protect everything from debris and dust. I'm that annoying homeowner that likes to watch what's going on and Walter didn't mind at all. He informed me of every step along the way. We ran into a slight issue which took a little more time than we both expected but understandably that what usually happens when you're fixing someone else's mistake. At the end of a full day he had removed the pre hung door, inserted the proper headers, replaced the footers with pressure treated wood, patched the concrete meeting the footer, waterproofed the footer, reseated the door, and trimmed out the finishing with the casings I bought to match our windows and a saddle.
My wife and I are very happy with the outcome and as I told Walter, we will be calling him for other projects. As a homeowner you only wish that someone will take the time and not cut corners, as if the work they were doing was on their own home. We feel that way after working with Walter.
