Walter Goodman is one of a dying breed of contractors. He does what he says he's going to do and has a great work ethic. Even in during some of the worst heat/humidity we have seen in many years, Walter showed up every day. Had to force him to take breaks and stay hydrated in the incredible heat. Walter is pretty much a one-man-show. If Walter had to bid other work, he always let us know he'd be late or had to leave early. Walter worked with us on a new wood deck design and rolled with changes, made suggestions for better efficiency and use of materials. Walter is a good collaborator - took our ideas and made suggestions for the best way to proceed. He also repaired our wood fence gates, built a new ramp for our shed and weatherproofed the shed doors. He suggested we install gable vents in the shed to dissipate intense early summer heat, which we gladly had him complete. Walter replaced our gutters and installed gutter guards. He even helped me repair my garden hose! Walter's primary talent is in siding, replacement gutters and gutter guards. He also installs and repairs windows and doors. We will be using him next year to remove/replace vinyl siding as he insulates our 1920 house. Walter is great with our 3 dogs and cat. He helped chase down our basset hound when the dog bolted through the gate. He loves all animals.
