Home building service.

Work Description:

-Construction of porch awning (extension of roof to cover existing porch) to eliminate water infiltration in front living room, including installation of "scupper" -Extensive repair of block wall/stucco -Wall and wrought iron repair of fence, including fabrication of walk-way gate -2-tone painting of entire home -Emplacement of wood paneling for utility room
George Bidwell (of Linwood Development Company) performed well in the construction of a covered porch, in addition to various improvements around the house. His philosophy of using re-purposed materials is both environmentally prudent, and fiscally responsible, and allowed us to receive far more work/material than most traditional contractors.

While George performed the majority of work himself, he sub-contracted for some of the stucco repair. He is knowledgeable about all aspects of construction, and his expertise allows for innovative response and creative problem solving. His work performance also included 2-tone house painting, brick repair, and wrought-iron repair. George even trimmed a tree, just because it needed it.

George was extremely proactive in communicating with us (via text, phone, email, in person) to ensure his appreciation of the project matched our desired "vision". However, I would be remiss if I did not mention the extended duration of the project. I understand that several of the reasons for delays were legitimate and unavoidable (days of rain, freezing temperatures, work conflicts, addition of projects), start to finish was about 5 weeks.

Even considering the timing, the price paid was an exceptional bargain considering the work performed. I am pleased with the work George performed.
