A review for IB CONSTRUCTION
Ivan and his crew made a huge contribution to the renovation of my 100 year old Annex house. The existing floors were visibly out of level so Ivan sistered all the floor joists and installed a new subfloor. The result was a perfectly level and creak free subfloor. He then framed the walls and ceilings. There were several challenging framing conditions such as at the skylight wells that he effortlessly resolved. His crew works efficiently and listens to instructions which helps alot as I was acting as my own general contractor. Ivan is a very professional, punctual and approachable tradesman. Whenever I pointed out areas that required remediation, he gave no fuss and set about correcting the problem. I was very satisfied with the resulting job and would not hesitate to recommend Ivan and his crew.
Thank you Takima for your review on me and my crew! It was really interesting to work on your great old house. I feel pride in workmanship done there. Ivan
A review for Reach Restoration, Inc.
I contracted with Reach restoration to enlarge two masonry openings and install new steel lintels in a 100 year old row house. There was excellent communication from site to confirm dimensions as work progressed. Jim and I exchanged over 50 emails over the course of a week. The enlarged openings were finished by meticulously toothing in the bricks at the jambs reusing salvaged bricks. I found out that there is quite an artistry to restoration of old brick walls and Reach’s experience showed in the finished product. For instance, brick courses are rarely level in 100 year old walls and my house was no different. Reach’s masons made micro field adjustments to the installed brick around the new openings to compensate for the existing courses that had sagged in the middle where the new opening was created. If Jim had not pointed this out to me I would of never noticed. The result was a beautifully executed, almost perfectly plumb and level openings ready to receive windows.0 of 0 people found this review helpful.
