I liked Bill from our initial estimate and scope of work discussions. He was friendly, practical, and professional; he also had excellent communication with us the whole way along. His quote was clear as to each of our responsibilities, including observable points in the work where various partial payments were due, and it was a fair breakdown.
At various points he brought in individual specific trades to help out on things to move them along more quickly etc. which was something he mentioned as a possibility. Each time, he ensured I knew which days and times additional workers would be there (which helps for those who like to know who is in their space, and for what reason).
He is very easy to work with, and includes you in the decision making for portions where things could be done multiple ways (if you like that, which I do). He shared expertise in selecting options, and took personal preferences into consideration.
Overall, the work was good quality, and completed as promised. Even my husband liked him; Bill took care to check if our cat had ninja crept into the construction zone prior to securing it each night!
For full disclosure, our job took a bit longer than originally estimated; however, I did expand the scope of the project a little which would contribute to that fact.
The work he did for us included framing 2 full walls (each with doors), and one partial wall. He built a bulkhead, and drywalled/sanded all the walls built plus a ceiling. He took care to match trim to that used in the rest of the house. Additionally, he did an adjustment as to how our dryer vent was run, installed a countertop, and suggested a few tips we could later implement ourselves (eg. to maintain the healthy flow of air in our home with these new walls in place via passive venting etc).
He did turn down part of the work we wanted done! Which, once he explained why. . . made good sense. We had wanted a new bathroom vent put in, which would require new access through the roof or an exterior wall. Winter in Canada~ Bill said no to this aspect of the work, suggesting waiting until warmer weather to be able to ensure adhesives correctly bonded and cured. He said he didn't want that aspect of the job in a season where correct sealing and water entrance prevention couldn't be ensured. So come the spring, I plan to call Bill again for his next (smaller) job with us. So yes, I'd recommend him, and plan to hire him again as soon as the weather permits.
