I’m impressed how fast all this gets done, and I think we are going to be very pleased with the new porch. Already the temperature in there is comfortable after the insulation. It makes a world of difference. I’ve invited our neighbors over to see proper air sealing.

Cannot compliment you enough on the quality of the insulation, and the living room solar design. Such a huge difference from our last house — the house just feels much warmer and holds heat so much better than our old house with the thermostats at the same temperature.

G.S.

Andrew’s professionalism, attention to detail and reliability made our renovation a wonderful experience. (Our project included our kitchen/dining area, two bathrooms, a new deck, all windows and floors. His entire team and vendors were a pleasure to work with. He was mindful of our budget and kept us abreast of expenses–no surprises. I highly recommend him.
