Our home is 102 years old and the staircase needed to either be replaced or completely refurbished. We also wanted to replace all the trim around the windows and doors as well as having the staircase leading to the basement rooms sanded down and re-finished. Alex undertook the work and did an excellent job. He is meticulous, perfectionist even. He does not take short cuts and he insists on doing the work the proper way. Because of the age of our house, very little in it is square or straight which poses certain challenges when renovating. Alex took the time to make sure the work was done right. He also consulted with us all along the project to make sure that things were being done the way we wanted them. The work took longer and was more challenging than initially anticipated but the results are excellent. We are totally pleased. On a more personal level, we found Alex to be a man of great integrity and extremely respectful. We have already recommended him to others and won't hesitate to do so in the future.
