After removing one wall 3 years ago with Bert, we decided to pursue another load bearing wall removal. We were confident Bert could do it properly and efficiently. Bert quickly came to look at the job and suggested that we go with a flush-beam. While it was a little bit more money, my wife and I agreed with him that the flush beam would be the best choice. Since we were opening the wall we also decided to remove the old popcorn ceiling and do flat ceiling with potlights.
Bert and his crew arrived promptly each day. Bert was also accommodating when we asked about taking down another ceiling in the family room. It was no problem for him. Electrical was handled by Rudy who did a great job to fix up messy work done by a previous contractor who installed the kitchen.
The ceiling removal and mudding & taping is a really messy job. Nothing can be done about that. However, we did it at the right time since the wall was being done, plus we had removed our flooring to install new hardwood. It was really worth it though as the ceilings look amazing. It's very nice having good lighting in each of those rooms now, and the ceilings were finished flawlessly.
One minor issue came up in regards to the potlight color that was initially installed, but Bert and his electrician kindly accommodated our request to change them.
Since we were doing other projects such as refinishing stairs, flooring, fireplace surround, breakfast bar/cabinetry, and tiling of foyer, Bert kindly provided his wisdom and experience by answering a number of my questions and offering suggestions on how best to finish each of those areas.
Bert operates a great business, trustworthy, priced well and most importantly done right.
