I originally called Dimitri last fall (2007) and he promptly returned my call. I explained the repair that was needed (just the side of the house at the time) and he promised to stop by to take a look and give me an estimate. He stopped by the following day and then called me the day after at work to discuss. At that time of year it is difficult to make sound stucco repairs because of the threat of cold weather. He indicated that although he could do the work, it would be risky and recommended waiting out the winter and doing it in the spring. I waited until this past summer (July) to get the work done. When I called Dimitri again he remembered me and promptly made arrangements to come by and do another estimate. By this time the repair area had grown on the side of the house and the front of my house needed repairs also. When he stopped by he was friendly and explained exactly what would be done, how long it would take and what it would cost. I was pleasantly surprised that the additional work to the front of the house only raised the total bill a couple hundred dollars. However, given the total size of the repairs wasn't completely happy with the price paid. However, I received no responses from three other contractors for this same work, so not much to compare to. Also, he took the time to provide a very detailed written explanation of the work and the cost estimate was in writing also. He provided me with a copy and I paid half up front. He arrived as promised with a co-worker/apprentice the following week and spent three days completing the work and doing a very thorough clean up job as well. When he complete the work and showed me exactly what they had done I paid the remaining balance. Overall was very happy with his workmanship, promptness and communication. It should be noted that Dimitri has a very heavy Greek accent and sometimes is difficult to understand. However, he is very friendly and obviously proud of his work. Highly recommended although a bit pricey. The business card I have from him has no address, only his home phone (above) and cell phone (518) 368-2872. He returns calls very promptly.
