The bottom posts at the bottom of the hand rails on our front porch had rotted after 24 years of being in the elements. Both hand rails were unstable and unsafe. The top posts had come loose after we had a company lift up a portion of our brick and aggregate front porch. Rick replaced the bottom and top posts and reattached the hand rails. He also repaired two rotten spindles on a portion of the front railing of the porch. Prior to beginning the project, Rick reviewed with me the steps he would take to make the repairs and the time it would take him to do each portion of the job, taking into consideration drying time for the concrete for the bottom posts which were sunk into the ground, and the drying time of the paint. He arrived each day at the agreed upon time, and the job was finished on schedule. Rick went above and beyond the scope of the job by repairing the two rotten spindles that he discovered after inspecting the porch, as they were in another area of the porch railing that was not in the original plan of repair. This is the front porch project is the second job Rick has done for me. The first was painting my kitchen cabinets, which are made up of 35 doors and 14 drawers. For that job, he reviewed the steps he would take, and the number of days it would take. At the end of each day, he told me what he had accomplished during that day, and what he would do the next day. The job was finished on schedule. He is very meticulous and thorough, neat and tidy. As noted above, he was very methodical about his approach to each job. I have now hired him to repair an area in my family room where a plumber had to cut a hole in the ceiling to repair a leak in the upstairs master shower. He is also going to paint the entire ceiling from the family room, through the eating area and into the kitchen. He is also going to put a coat of paint on the crown molding.
