We had the great experience of contracting with Carlous for a major renovation to our 100+ year home. From the beginning, Carlous was responsive and worked to assure us that our house would be in good hands: he met with us for an extended period of time to discuss our project, arranged for references and invited us to a current job site to review his work.
The renovation involved taking the majority of our house down to the studs, sistering all of the joists to reinforce and level the floors (which previously had a significant slope), installing a new subfloor, reframing the entire upstairs floor, installation of drywall, hardwood flooring, and all of the finishings. We also did a full renovation of our bathroom, including a standing shower, moving the plumbing and all of the finishings.
As with most large-scale construction projects, there were a few surprises that could not have been anticipated at the start of the project (for example, compromised structural framing). However, in each instance, Carlous would inform us of the issue, and ultimately implement our decision promptly. These surprises led to a small delay in our project, but Carlous and his team were present each day working on our project, without compromising quality.
Carlous is very responsive. We expected to partner with someone who would be available to answer our calls, questions and any concerns. Carlous delivered in this respect.
We would not hesitate to work with Carlous again.
