Matching on Angi
Decks & Porches
I called DFW Improved about 3 months ago for an estimate on repair of my brick porch. I had the great pleasure of meeting Garrett Lambert from DFW Improved at that time. While assessing my porch, he suggested that I might have a foundation problem and if that were so it would be futile to repair the brick as it would only crack again. I already had it repaired by another company about three years ago! Well, I did have a foundation problem and then a plumbing problem, both taken care of by companies I found through Angie's List. I called Garrett back after all this was done, he came out right away, gave me an estimate on the spot. He even came up with a solution to my problem. My old brick was destroyed, so it would be a matter of trying to match the brick and tearing up the entire porch. Garrett suggested that perhaps slate might be a better option. I was very concerned with the price as I had already put all that money out with the foundation and the plumbing. I was delighted that his idea would be faster and less expensive. I was very concerned with the safety issue with the hole in the front porch although I kept it well lit. I got this estimate before the horrible weather hit Dallas so I just knew that all the work would probably have to be rescheduled to a later date, but to my surprise the original schedule was still on. I had my porch repaired on 2/8/11, as scheduled, and before the second storm hit. I am very pleased with the results and the wonderful care and consideration I received from Garrett Lambert and DFW Improved.
