Front porch enclosure and 2nd floor door and window replacement

Overall, we had a very good experience with Rob and his team. We hired him to enclose our porch (4 season room) and renovate a wall section in a 2nd floor room to address heat loss. Our house has 110 years of charm, such as walls that aren't level and rotting wood, so it was a challenging project.

Of all the contractors I interviewed for this project, I felt that Rob had the best balance of knowledge, professionalism and experience. He thoroughly answered all my questions, listened to my concerns, and responded to issues. He was enjoyable company during breaks too!

We were able to get an end to end solution, including permits, drawings and surveying done through Rob's connections. Rob also organized all sub-contracted work (electrical, roofing) and managed our expectations regarding that work. Lastly, he also dealt with the building inspectors and ensured that all our permits were closed when the work was completed.
Having Rob manage those parts of the project gave us peace of mind.

We're pleased with the end results: 1) a well built, energy efficient mudroom with custom staircase, custom cabinets and heated floor. This enclosure has improved first floor comfort levels and provides a lovely and practical entrance. 2) a renovated west-facing wall in our family room which no longer lets in any cold air (new insulation, door and window) and is a very comfortable room to be in.

We also appreciated Rob's assistance on smaller extra things like strengthening my son's crib and installing our cat door.

This project did take a little longer than planned, but the results were worth the wait. We recommend Rob and his team for any work involving beautiful woodwork or renovating a very old house. He knows what he's doing and it shows.
