I was completing a renovation on a 100+ yr old semi-detached home. I was in need of a concrete contractor for bench footing to add 16" to the height of my basement ceiling. Seeing M Scott company is a 4 time winner of HomeStars Best-of awards, I opted to work with Mike and his team. The project cost was pricier but service delivery was excellent and definitely worth every dollar. Mike and his team stands out for 3 reasons:
1) Communicates and schedules effectively with general-contractor and myself, the owner. Whenever there were any delays (caused by inspections or general contractor), Mike was consistent in follow-up to check on progress and remained flexible in scheduling. He also kept me in-the-know throughout the process, which is not a common practice in this industry.
2) Expertly navigated requirements of City's building permit inspector and my structural engineer. We had a particularly picky inspector, so the Mike's ability to work with the engineer to address concerns in a timely fashion kept delays to a minimal.
3) Demonstrates sense of urgency and "do whatever it takes mentality". eg. For a plumbing inspection, already running late, the master plumber indicated he forgot to bring a ball for the drain Ball Test. After we all frantically and unsuccessful called nearby plumbing supplies stores for availability, Mike jumped into his truck and purchased a cue ball from a nearby billiards hall. Thinking on his feet and willing to roll up his sleeve - excellent.
Save yourself some headaches and go with Mike's team.
