Found CJ on Angie's list and gave him a small project to test him out. Our carport was falling apart, and a few sections needed to be reframed and reroofed. The existing structure is about 80 years old, and had been added on to haphazardly over the years. So there were alot of weird angles and odd connections that had to be worked around. CJ came through beautifully. His framing skills are flawless. At every step, he thought about how to tie-in to the existing structure in ways that allowed us to rebuild only a few small sections, which saved us alot of money in labor and materials. The process went very smoothly, and we are very happy with the results. Based on this positive experience with the carport, we then hired CJ to oversee some drainage issues. He built exterior French Drains along two sides of our house, and routed all the water to a new dry well. This involved alot of excavation, lots of new perforated pipe, and lots of gravel. It was a messy job, in less than ideal weather, but CJ got it done quickly and efficiently. Best of all, we now have a dry basement! For both projects, CJ worked independently when we needed him to, and alongside us when we wanted to be part of the process. We found him to be easy to deal with, very honest, and very reliable. Next up.... we're hiring CJ to convert our garage into a small apartment. Should be fun.
