Dan and Shannon M.


Description of Work
We had a pipe burst in our home which knocked out the ceiling, two walls, and some flooring and the baseboards. Mike and Dave came in and repaired everything for us. Mike even helped us with an additional task. They did a great job. The repairs look amazing. 1st Capital will be our go to company from now on. (I gave them a b on punctuality simply because Mike has another job, so if you need something done immediately, he may not get to it for a few days - but well worth the wait.)

Mike came our and assessed the situation. He quoted us a price and did not try and rip us off. He was easy going and willing to work around our schedule and made sure to ask all the right questions. When he and Dave came in to do the work, they covered everything with tarps and cleaned up after they were finished. The place was immaculate when they were done. They repaired three parts of our ceilings, rebuilt two walls, repaired our floor, and added baseboards that had to be removed from the flood. The baseboards are so close to the seventy-five year old originals that you can hardly tell the difference. The entire time both gentleman were consummate professionals. The only reason I gave them a b for punctuality, is that this is their side business. If you need something done immediately - they may not be the company for you. However, their work is well worth the wait of a day or two. Hire them - you won't regret it!

Mike was great to work with and his work exceeded our expectations. We definitely would use him again in the future. Approximately 60% of the cost was for the labor with the remaining 40% for the materials.

Description of Work
We had several carpentry related projects that needed completed quickly on a house we recently purchased. Mike installed a new wood railing and banister from the first floor to the second; built a hall linen closet; installed (3) new bedroom doors, which required work to the door jams as well; and installed a new set of wood stairs from the first floor to the basement.

We had three new windows replaced. Everything went well and we were very satisfied. We then described a problem with our roof. He went up and found that the previous roofer did a partial job. We also had a leak and no one was able to find the problem. When the siding was replace by another company, the capping was place over rotted wood. 1ST CAPITAL found the problem, fixed it and the leak was gone We have refered friends and relatives and would definetely use tham again.

I used Mike Rodgers, proprietor of Capital Construction, on three occasions for repairs to my home which included extensive water damage caused by Hurricane Irene. These jobs were in November 2011 and in March 2012, and included dry wall replacement, roof, drainpipe and gutter repair, ceiling replacement, and repairs to and sealing of a large front window with a copper roof. Mike was prompt and courteous, and stood behind his work. He did this at a time when most roofers and contractors would not even give you the courtesy of a return call. (I presume because of the huge need for repairs following Irene.) Mike identified problems with the roof, and fixed these, identifying problems that a "roofer" had not. When I asked him to identify and fix leakage around a large front window, he came in and sealed the areas around the copper roof and window he repaired and sealed these. When the leaking continued about two weeks later, I called him, and he promptly returned and addressed the problem without charging anything further. It has been watertight since that time. I would not hesitate to recommend him.

Extremely well! They showed up on time and got right to work. When I came back to check on them around lunch all the windows had been installed and they were working on the capping. They were also done with the demo on the kitchen and were cleaning it out. They stayed late that night and when they came back the next day they were done by 3pm. The work was top quality....they know what they are doing and they do it well!
