I contacted Fred through his Facebook page after finding him here on Angies list. He gave me an hourly quote of $55 per man hour (I assumed he was going to bring a novice helper as well and get me for $110 per actual hour while giving the helper $20 an hour). I asked him if he could give me a flat rate quote and I never heard back from him. Not even a polite "I don't give quotes or flat rate prici...

Fred did a great job on our house! This was the second time we've had Upright work on our home, and we were just as pleased as the first time. To start, our front door was extremely drafty. Fred essentially rebuilt the frame, installed our new door and storm doors, and he also used spray foam insulation to ensure that no air would be leaving or entering the house. The frame was tricky to repair be...

The member had me reattach a light where it had pulled free from the garage wall. Then I replaced a really rotted piece of Fascia. Then fixed a bench that the arm rest legs had fallen apart.

Extremely well! Fred tracked down and explained the causes of the rot, took apart the rotted areas, and removed the inadequate flashing, which was one of the major causes. He then replaced rotted trim and beadboard, designed and installed proper flashing and roofing, and painted what needed it. In all, an excellent job!!

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
Runoff from our large roof onto a porch roof below had been rotting cedar shingles, trim, and beadboard under roof shingles. Determining the causes of the rot was not easy and the repair was complicated.

Actually very busy at this time. Most of the Windows are in very rough shape. Will probably need more than paint. Putting up the boards was to help. Didn't expect a poor review for helping. Sorry?? May God fill you with His peace through Christ Jesus.amen
