From ironing out the quote details right through completion of the work. Everything was done in a timely manner and right on quote. They also do a great job of cleaning up after themselves at the end of each day, which was very important to us as we did not vacate the house for the work to be done (until the floor refinishing was taking place). Rich and Paul were also very receptive to add on work as we went along. For example, the bathroom painting, kitchen faucet and downstairs shower work were not in the original quote. He did them upon request at very reasonable prices.

Rich and Paul (a real keeper .. great worker!) did a lot of the work but they do subcontract out a number of things (plaster work, plumbing, tile). All of the subs were respectful and cleaned up after themselves. The one and only time someone didn't clean up (the plaster guys), Paul was already there cleaning up after them when I got home from work. So you know he keeps an eye on his subs.

They did such a great job it's almost like having a new house. Many thanks to Rich and Paul and crew! I know who I'll be hiring for any future home remodeling work. 1st Choice.
