He did excellent work. The wood work done around the bay window was rather quick and he did it on site quickly. Repair and replacement of the spindles making up the balcony railing took longer but he did excellent work. I had engaged BJ's Painting to paint my exterior trim, along with other maintenance tasks around the house which included some wood repair of water damaged wood. After approving the contract, I noticed Thomas Johns, owner of BJ's Painting had asked Buddy of BW Improvement's to do the carpenter work. He removed the damaged wood and shaped and replaced new wood to repair it like new. He only took a short time to do the wood work in BJ's contract so I asked him to look at the balcony spindles. EAch of the 13 homes on this street have had similar problems with these builder installed spindles in the railing of our balcony. Each balcony has about 20-30 spindles. Some of the homeowners have replaced them and some repaired them but all have said they paid about $3500 to have the repairs completed, usually resulting in plastic spindles being used. I asked Buddy for suggestions to do the job for less cost. He thought they could be repaired by removing the spindles and taking them to his woodworking shop and remove the rotted portion, and replace the finished repaired spindle. He gave me an estimate which was about 1/3 what each other homeowner said they had paid. I then gave him the go ahead on my home and he removed a portion of the spindles to take to his woodworking shop to experiment to see if his technique would work. He finished the first 5 and returned for the next 5. When those were finished and installed, he removed the last 20 and took them, returning about 5 days later with the completed items. They looked very good and I told him to also take the spindles from the house next door which I also own, and repair them as well. The work has a learning curve and he was somewhat experimenting for ways to do it with the first 5 but he moved somewhat faster and completed the others in good time. I have since discovered that he does both interior and exterior work including cabinets, flooring, roofing, trim, door and window frames, wood repairs, decks, and porches. I think I would sum up his work for me as quality work for a less than expected cost. He is a one man company but does excellent work.
