We were very pleased with the contractors work- he explained the job from beginning to end and did exactly what we agreed upon. He stuck to his word on the price and dealt with whatever was needed to be done. I would high recommend him, and use him again in the future.

We have definitely found our go-to guy for any jobs that we need done around the house. Jim is courteous, punctual, and honest. He always clearly explained the pros and cons of jobs we were trying to do, and gave very reasonable prices. He is crafty and creative, and did not shy away from some unusual work requests like building a custom plywood door for an outdoor basement entrance, finding a way...

Jimmy was always punctual and courteous. His work on installing the cement board and sheet rock was mediocre at best. There was a large space around the tub. The window was all uneven. The cement board was actually wavy. He only shimmed it to straighten it upon request. Some nail spots were not spackled-- again done only on request. The walls and the floor were not exactly level. There was a large...

HI [Member Name Removed] i am sorry u feel the way you do about the job there was a half inch space around tub cause there is a lip that goes around tup that is supposed to be flush to the wall studs and the tub wasn't , ( i did not install the tub), so if i had put the cement board all the way to tub the cement board would not be flush to wall studs and the tile when installed would not be flush ...

Since I met Jim in 2010, he has done numerous jobs for me - both big and small. He is a true craftsman. I have never had any complaints about any of the work he has done. He is also very pleasant and mannerly. I leave my house to him for the day without any hesitations. My kitten fell in love with him.

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
an entire wall had to be created, French doors installed where there were no doors, tile flooring where there had been vinyl flooring, create a tile countertop, install wood flooring where there was only plywood, install additional sheetrock in my ceilings so I could legalize an apartment upstairs according to Town code, installed shoji sliding doors for washer/dryer area - and so much more.
