Once again Andrei and his SOSNA crew improved our house and our lives. They have created new rooms for us in the past, this time they repaired some faulty original construction, that has caused leaks in our kitchen ceiling over the past 25 years.
The obvious cause of a water stained kitchen ceiling would be a leak from outside. We have had our extended kitchen roof repaired three or four times - but every few years the water stains were back. Andrei’s keen eye suspected a different problem. First he had us hire a heat-escaping engineer/photographer who confirmed Andrei’s suspicion. The original builder had not insulated the metal beam that supported the second floor where our kitchen extension roof ends. This allowed the beam to get very cold in bad winters and cause condensation to drip onto our kitchen ceiling.
His polite and efficient crew came in one morning, covered the floor from the front door through to our kitchen and draped sheer plastic sheets along the working corridor. At night when the work was done for the day, we would lift and tape up the plastic sheets to make doorways to our kitchen cabinets and family room. The main floor looked a sultan’s tent.
One thing that was up in the air was whether or not we would have to paint the kitchen ceiling where the drywall was removed to install spray-in insulation foam, or if Leo, our congenial site foreman, could match the paint to the rest of the kitchen ceiling saving us from having to paint the whole of the main floor ceiling.
Leo matched it and Andrei happily lowered the estimate. How unusual for a contractor to lower costs after their work. But it is not surprising if you deal with an honest contractor like SOSNA.
Andrei, to you and your crew - thank you again. We look forward to working with you on more of our home improvement projects.
