It went well. Mike the owner was very knowledgeable and very experience. He was able to point out and explained to me how the issue can impact in my house.

The project, conducted in December 2018, went fine, although not at all good about containing or cleaning up any messes, and some of the finishes were a bit sloppy (grout left on tiles, door lock doesn't line up properly). Upon completion, he was paid in full. However, three months after it was complete and paid in full, I received notice of a lien on my property for $2,150 in drywall contractor c...

In February 2017, Mike finished the work on our basement. He was also supposed to do the front porch. He took out the old one in March of 2017. He revived a check for the full amount on 3-18-17. He said that he would come back and frame and pour the porch as soon as the weather got warm enough. It’s now one year and three months later and he still hasn’t done the work. I have called him between 50...

What this homeowner failed to mention was the complete story. First and foremost there was an insurance flood in which the insurance only covered a few thousand dollars and the homeowner paid a plumber who did the piping incorrectly and not to code. Now I walked in and was hired to fix and general contract . I renegotiated with the insurance and helped the homeowner get all damages covered. I paid...

Recommended by US Waterproofing. We had water in our family room after storms. Determined it came from behind brick from chimney. He tuck pointed, put on new chimney cap, caulk, repair flashing & shingles. Repaired cement chimney base. Saw other cracks and took care of those. Spent nearly 10 hours here. Quite knowledgeable.

Mike was very responsive and charged a fair price. The work turned out excellent and Mike has gone above and beyond following up with us to make sure the work was done to our satisfaction. We will definitely work with him again in the future!

Excellent job. He sealed up a basement leak that stemmed from the windows and the front door upstairs. That job had worried me to death because I had had another contractor who charges 3-4 times more than the job is worth. Imagine how I felt when he came the same day, on-time, ready to work (not ready with a clipboard for writing, to blow up an estimate and return another day) Affordable quality w...

Mike and his son talked to my husband about the condition of the stone wall and what needed to be done. Mile is very knowledgeable and took time to explain what he would be doing before he began. Mike made the repairs, remortored, and caulked. The wall looks great. He and his son cleaned up before they left.

Description of Work
Repaired a stone surface and wall that is on two sides of our home. Over time there were cracks in the mortor with one section of a pillar that if left unattended would have fallen off.

Work was never done as he never followed up with the estimate. I followed up via email, phone and text and after almost two weeks I still don't have the estimate. I did reach him on the phone, he apologized but still no estimate.

I inspected the job and gave the homeowner many options. She appeared to be wasting time pricematching informing me she has many contractors coming out. The woman appeared to be unsure and this job was not worth estimating and spending any more time due to me involving another tradesman . I gave a verbal estimate. Seriously how can someone give a bad review on not giving a written estimate ? No wo...

It went very well. This is one recommendation for the 4 jobs that I hired Ancient Construction to perform. Mike is very competent and helpful. His advice is excellent, as is his work product. Mike's work is cost competitive and will find ways to save you money. Clearly I would rehire Ancient Construction as I have done four times now, all for different jobs.
