Sam was invaluable with my structured wring (telephone, cable, audio, video) project. My reno project was a complete gut of a backsplit. I contacted several home automation companies, my budget didn’t allow for full implementation of my smart home endeavor. I wanted to rough in all the wiring that would make my home as future proof as possible while the walls were down. The companies I contacted suggested different wring scenarios that were designed for the equipment that they sold. Sam did a great job in helping me view my wiring project with an out of the box approach. Sam suggested it dint matter what components I would choose now or in the future, what mattered was that infrastructure was in place. The analogy that he used to help me put this into prospective was: "let’s design a superhighway for your current and future needs, imagine the 401 with 12 lanes in each direction, who cares who makes the cars that use the highway" I had approached the design of the project from an end users perspective, I didn’t receive this advice from other companies, Sam didn’t have an agenda to sell me what he had either in stock or who he was an authorized dealer for.
Sam also insulated my project. Sam choose a high density closed cell spray foam that is ideal for the exterior walls, this was followed up with R19 safe& sound bats, what really impressed me with Sam’s insulation work was the way he affixed the vapor barrier to the studs around my windows. Typically red tuck tape is used, Sam explained that even though tuck tape meets code it doesn’t adhere very well to wood, instead he used some sort of ‘acoustical gunk” and I have a 100% bond. I have absolutely no drafts coming in from around my window and door openings……Unfortunately I had already made a commitment for another company for my drywalling and taping, I couldnt back out of the agreement. Hind sight being 20/20 I should have had Sam do my entire project.
I’m extremely impressed with Sam's ethics and overall direction on my job. I would not hesitate to use Sam's services in the future, I would also highly recommend Sam as consultant, he knows his stuff.
