Renovation of old home addition which was deteriorating, including waterproofing. Wrought iron fence installation.
Michael Thompson, of Thompson Construction, was one of three contractors I contacted. He was extremely knowledgeable about details of the work to be done, emphasizing the importance of doing the work with the best long term result. He did the work himself with his two employees. He was either on site, or guided them for short periods while away. A lot of the work was accomplished by Michael.
The work related to leakage into a back stair addition of my 100 year old Beach home. It smelled of mildew, was cold, and I could see water damage on the plasterboard.
During the renovation, as predicted, there was damage to the foundation, requiring waterproofing of the basement area, on the outside of the house. Due to dry-rot of the wood, a rebuild of the addition was also extensive.
With each issue, Michael showed me what the concern was, and how it could be solved.
The final result was magnificent, as Michael maintained to beauty of the original woodwork, but with new wood. It is now warm, dry, and mildew free. I did not think it could be done!
The wrought iron fence was installed to such a high level of skill, my neighbour is now asking Michael to continue the fence onto his property. Because my neighbour is in the construction business, and would know a number of good people, I was impressed Michael was asked to do this work. By the way, my neighbour did not know Michael prior to the work.
I recommend Thompson Construction without reservation, and will have him back in the spring for further work.
