I initially asked Brian Melvin to clear some fallen saplings blocking the path to my brush pile, but soon learned he had much more expertise than that. It ended up that he also replaced a fallen section of my 6’ stockade fence; repaired my chain link fence that was destroyed by a fallen tree this winter, pulled some English ivy off two corners of my house and cleared branches that were weighing down my stockade fence. This was all done in a few hours and I thought it would take all summer. I then asked him to come back and re-point my chimney, which he did the very next day. I understand he also does painting, finish work and just about any other chore you might need him for. Brian communicates, which I really appreciate. I knew when he’d be at my house, and if he was going to be late at all, he called and kept me informed. Communication is huge with me and I really appreciated that. I will be hiring Brian for more chores, probably sooner rather than later. I highly recommend Brian Melvin for almost any type of work, including the small jobs. Brian will be my “go to” guy for sure. Marlene, Hudson, MA.
