My husband and I needed our entire bathroom and part of our master bedroom space redone and reconstructed. Gary was able to start right away, and we trusted him fully to work throughout the day in our home without us there. The project ended up being so much more work than we originally intended as our floor joints had to be completely replaced due to rot. Gary was patient with the project and his prices were very reasonable. He was very adept at framing the space (we moved several walls), and he was knowledgeable about every step of the construction project. Ultimately, the project called for him to utilize a very diverse skill set, including foundation work, carpentry, framing, structural re-enforcement, drywall work, electricity, plumbing, carpentry, patching wood floors, door and baseboard trim, tiling, cabinetry, and hanging a shower door. During the project, we even expanded our project past his comfort zone in a several areas (namely vaulting the ceiling and using a non-water based grout boost mixer for intricate tile work), but he was flexible with every step and achieved a result that looks stunning.
Outside of the technical side, I want to commend Gary's communication, honesty, and professionalism. It was evident that he took a great deal of ownership in the project, and that showed in his responsiveness and willingness to communicate with us. There were mornings that he would get there and show us fixtures that he had been researching after he had gone home the night before. He was very responsive whenever we had a question, and he would send us updates throughout the day while we were at work. Obviously there are ups and downs with any contractor and major house project; I have never once heard of a perfect home renovation story. But Gary worked with us through any frustrating moments with grace and professionalism, which is often rare to find.
Ultimately, we would hire Gary again for future projects, and we love our final result. Our bathroom is simply beautiful and we have gotten so many compliments already.
