I would recommend Dave without reservation for any house renovation contract. From the initial stages of discussion and estimation, Dave showed a degree of professionalism often lacking in today’s “bottom line” construction trade. He listened patiently to all of our ideas and then took a weekend to design a comprehensive estimate incorporating all our ideas and ensuring that current construction codes were met.
We sought two other estimates from well established construction/renovation firms and were disappointed in the lack of detail and specifications in their estimates. Dave’s estimate fell between the two estimates and included all the details we had sought in clear and precise language. Neither other firm displayed the same openness to our ideas as Dave, and both failed to inspire confidence that the finished renovation would be what we had dreamed of and saved for.
Dave executed the proposed estimate on time, within budget, and with a degree of pride in workmanship that met or exceeded all our expectations. Design changes required during the actual building were made easily and within the original cost estimate.
Dave was extremely accurate in his estimate of time required; finishing within a day of his timeline despite difficulties in acquiring materials and weather disruptions. Disruptions to our daily lives were kept to a minimum. Site cleanup was thorough. Craftsmanship and pride in a job well done were evident throughout the entire renovation.
Dave’s suggestions and modifications always reflected thought and care for the overall impression of the renovation as part of the original design not just as an “add-on”. This approach is evident in the final product.
I recommend Dave as a design, and renovation expert of exceptional ability and craftsmanship.
