Aiad and his team have utterly transformed our 80 year old home. When the previous owners added a second story 20 years ago, they had their contractor cover the house in stucco. Unfortunately they cut corners and the stucco began cracking not long after we bought the house 15 years ago. Recently, it also started warping in several places, and when cracks began to develop near the foundation we decided to look for a contractor to re-do the stucco. We had four of the top companies on HomeStars quote on the job, and although the quote from Aiad was not the least expensive, his professionalism, knowledge, and friendly, down-to-earth manner inspired our confidence. Although we had to postpone the start time by over a year, Aiad was patient and very understanding, and unlike many other contractors we have heard about, he did not increase the price. Whenever I called or emailed him, he always responded promptly and addressed all of our questions and concerns. He was also extremely meticulous in planning the details of the project, which was by no means straightforward, because the house has a second story deck that is not in the best shape, a bay window that was never properly covered, and ancient eavestroughs and downspouts that were inadequate and causing leaks.
Aiad and his crew always arrived when he said they would, worked really hard throughout the day and even into the evening, were very friendly and accommodating when some problems needed to be addressed with our eavestroughs, and completed the job promptly and exactly when he said they would...something that almost never happened with other contractors we have had in the past. Aiad also found creative solutions and work-arounds when a few issues arose. For example, when it turned out that our old door frame was too close to one of the porch lights on one side, Aiad removed the light fixture, installed a lovely, new frame, and then re-wired the light fixture and attached it in the correct location....all at no extra charge! I have never seen a contractor take so much care and pride in their workmanship to make sure that everything looks right, is done properly, and that the homeowners are happy. He also arranged for caulking, and an eavestrough specialist to fix the problems we had been having and install a proper downspout and flashing.
We are extremely happy with the result; the materials that they used were of excellent quality and their craftsmanship was topnotch. The character and value of our 80-year-old home has truly been enhanced by the coins, mouldings, and keystones that they installed. Several neighbours have stopped by to tell us that our house actually looks brand new. Many thanks to Aiad and his team for an awesome job that has far exceeded our expectations!
