Flooring repair

We had a series of incredibly bad squeaks in one of our bedrooms (the nursery of course) that had existed since we moved in. We had another contractor in to repair the issue who cut into the floor and determined the squeak was caused by a gap above a steel beam allowing for the floor to move. He shimmed it up and replaced the area with a sheet of plywood. Unfortunately, the squeak returned and caused havoc when we tried to sneak out at night (our daughter would wake up often).

We looked around and Scott Heatherington was willing to come in with limited notice and give us a very basic quote. Once he opened the floor we found that the issue was caused by an incorrect joist hanger, letting the joist move slightly causing the noiser squeaks. He repaired the joist hanger, added some blocking, corrected the shimming, and replaced the plywood sheet. The squeaking by the door is completely eliminated and greatly reduced in other areas - and Scott was able to do it in half a day!

He was honest, genuine, and extremely knowledgeable. We plan on getting Scott back to do several other jobs for us including replacing some porch columns in the near future.
