    "I am writing to compliment your employees on a job well done. Bob was very responsive in returning phone calls from the initial contact we made to get preliminary estimates to finish our basement. The foreman was at our house almost every day for two-and-a-half weeks. His work was excellent. He finished everything on or ahead of schedule, left all of the work areas clean, and finished all of the small details to complete the job entirely. Due to the timeliness and quality of their work, we were able to enjoy our finished basement prior to the Thanksgiving holiday as promised."

  • Find that mold in your home

    With spring just around the corner, now is the time to check for mold throughout your home. If you suffered water damage or flooding during the winter, we highly recommend checking these common places where this yucky stuff can grow:

    1. Beneath drywall- If your walls show signs of mold (cracked/peeling paint, bulging behind the paint, discoloration of walls), then that section of drywall should be torn out and inspected.

    2. Basement crawl spaces- In basements and crawl spaces, just look for any evidence of dampness. Be especially aware of any black mold growth that might be taking place in wooden building materials, especially in the framing, since this is the best path for mold to take to other parts of the home.

    3. Above the ceiling- Just as mold in the wall cavities can lead to mold growth in interior walls, the same can happen in the spaces above ceilings. Especially since a common source of water infiltration - roof leaks - start from above.
