Lance remodeled our staircase. From a carpet staircase with half-walls, we knocked down the half-walls and upgraded to a hardwood staircase with metal balusters. The job required the demo of the existing stairs and carpet, dry wall remodeling and painting, staining and finishing of the new hardwood treads, risers and handrails, installing the treads, risers, balusters, handrails and the new trims. It is a complex job and Lance finished it in the most professional way possible. The final product met or exceeded our expectations. He is a skilled and intelligent worker. If he is faced with a new challenge, he starts by researching it and comes up with a solid solution. I liked the fact that, unlike many contractors that I had to deal with, his working day always started early (like 8:30AM or so) and always kept us informed in advance about his next day schedule. His quote was very reasonable, easy to read and understand. He kept a clean workspace inside the house and did all the painting, staining and finishing outside, such that there was no smell in the house. I really appreciated this, because all other contractors that bid for this same job, could not provide a smell free environment and asked to do the staining and finishing inside the house. He is a very reasonable and trustworthy person, accommodating our gap in schedule (we had to leave town for almost four weeks) and our proposed payment schedule. I’m recommending him without any reservation. I’d hire him again for any other job I‘d have. Thank you, Lance!
