We bought our house in June of 2012. Great canal location, solid house, but had been neglected and needed a lot of work. Needed major concrete spalling repairs, doors and windows, kitchen and bath work, porch screens and ceiling. Because we live 1700 miles away it was a long distance project. We met with Jim after the closing in June, along with other contractors. After checking reference and meeting in person with him we selected him to handle the project. We are very happy we did. Him and his crew have been great to work with and everything was completed when promised. His men are a pleasure to be around. Very polite, very good at what they do and neat and clean. We have used Jim as resource for recommendations on other tradesman for work that his crew doesn't do. Would highly recommend him for your remodeling work and a new house. He has a very good reputation in the Lower Keys and has a good working relationship with the building inspectors, which is very important. A major long distance project like ours can work if you have good people you can trust. Be careful, there are a lot of pirates in the Keys, but there is also a lot of good people. Luckily we got hooked up with the good ones. Thanks to JIm, his crew, and the people he recommended. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
