Our house was in desperate need of serious tuck pointing on all four walls and the porch pillars in front. There were MANY areas where you could see right through because so much mortar was missing. A few months ago we called Ernie and about 7 other contractors to come do an estimate. Ernie's estimate was the lowest of all 8 contractors (coming in nearly $7,000 less than the most expensive estimate). It was a few months before we called him back. We were hesitant to go with the "cheapest" estimate because after all, you get what you pay for. We found that Wilkens had good ratings here on Home Stars so we called Ernie back and he came out again. He reviewed the original estimate from a few months ago and stood by it. He was very knowledgeable so we decided to use them for the job. He had a contractor to our house the next week and he worked on our house for 3 full days - all of which he had to work in the rain and cool temperatures. We were SO pleased with the results. He was friendly and did an absolutely amazing job. We even had a 2' x 3' area on our front pillar that was stained white from the previous owner trying to do the tuck pointing himself (!) This stain was gone after our Wilkens contractor left. The house looks 10x better than it did before. We couldn't be happier. We got much more than we expected for the price and when we received the invoice, it was exactly what we had discussed. Absolutely fantastic.1 of 1 people found this review helpful.
