After they caulked my window trims, walkway cracks, and siding joints, I continue to employ them on more projects such as:
-deck membrane along my property line at my back alley (asphalt)
-bathroom (bathtub, shower, sink, toilet and floor corners) and kitchen (backsplash and sink)
-window (exterior and interior fish tanking)
Each project was no easy feat. However, the team managed to maintain a smile on their faces at all times. For instance, with the deck membrane, I changed my mind three times. Leo originally offered to do a simple crack chasing repair on cracked asphalt along my property line to help me save money. When all was done, I doubted the caulk would hold up with the city's aged asphalt seeing how it keeps deteriorated every winter. So Leo suggested topping it with deck membrane for extra support (see photo). Unfortunately, the overall look reminded me of a miniature racing track for kids to play with their toy cars in my back alley. It gave a cheap look in my view. So I decided to break the bank by having my entire back alley covered in deck membrane with 2 caveats -the finish MUST resemble and blend with city asphalt and MUST have surface traction. They accommodated my demands beautifully! No one can tell it is a deck membrane. Just see for yourself the photo.
The 7-bathroom (bathtub, shower, sink, toilet and floor corners) project was straightforward. Unfortunately, days after payment, I found some areas were missed, 1 caulk simply would not dry after 2 weeks and 3 developed bubbles within a few days. Leo stood by his workmanship and promptly returned 3 times to correct the problem until I was completely satisfied.
My family and I are uber happy with their workmanship and service. I appreciate Leo's perseverance when dealing with my demands. I am most grateful of his generosity in giving me personal tips on how to do-it-yourself home repair to save money. I'll definitely hire them again and recommend them to anyone looking for caulking or deck membrane.
While performing a routine window inspection, I discovered a few rotten spots in one of my bay window sill. After discussing with some contractors, they all came to the same conclusions. That I need to replace the rot and have all exterior window trims caulked for moisture prevention. When asked which sealant caulk to use, all recommended Dap or Dynaflex230 -both of which I frown upon. Despite manufacturer's claims, I know acrylic latex on exterior never last beyond 1 to 2 years. So it sounds ludicrous and wasteful to apply a failing sealant only to have to recaulk within 2 years. Fortunately, someone suggested I employ a professional caulker to caulk my windows instead.
Until that time, I had never hear of such profession. Being totally clueless, I randomly typed some search keywords on Craiglist. On my fifth trial-and-error, I came across a wanted hiring ad which led me to this company called Next Level Caulking. Bingo!
Leo checked out my site, introduced his services and provided his recommendations. Within 20 minutes of assessing my place, I was impressed by his eye for details. He was able to pick out every single work that I had either previously DIYed or paid professionals to do. These were odd spots that none of my family members even noticed unless I pointed out to them. He even correctly identified the types of sealant caulk used. When he said he would only use Tremco Dymonic, a polyurethane sealant caulk on all my windows, I said aloud in my head, "Bingo!"
What really sold me was when he suggested all of my soffit-joints and siding-joints should be sealed for pest controls and draft proofing. This was a BIG DEAL to me because for 5 years I could not find anyone who knows how to deal with these issues. That is of course until I met Leo. Again Bingo!
Since Leo patiently listened and answered all of my concerns and doubts, I felt confident that he must be adept in his expertise. Hence, I expanded his workload to sealing my entire house and garage's siding-joints, foundation gaps, joints and cracks along concrete stairs and walkway, as well as minor carpentry repairs.
Honestly, the entire project was hefty. However, given the scope of intricacies involved in my property, Leo's policy of using strictly construction grade products for application, his installation guarantees 7 years and possibly beyond, and that his services alone replace my need to hire carpenters, window glazers, masonry contractors and pest controllers separately. In my view, the overall price is a real bargain and ultimately well-worthed.
Work ethic wise, Leo and Josh worked and completed everything as scheduled. Always arrived on time and even 30 minutes early. Never mind being supervised or interrupted with questions. Carried positive attitude and were approachable. Maintained good communication skills throughout the process and attended to my requests in timely manner.
As a conservative consumer, I usually make an informed decision after consulting with several contractors. In this case, I made up my mind within 2 consultations with the same. Next Level Caulking is the one-and-only caulking company I talked to. I took a big risk but rather than regarding my instinct as gambling, I said to myself, "Thank you Buddha for your guidance. I feel like I just won Bingo!"
The finished look is artistically and seamlessly color-matched to my exterior paint. It is also structurally waterproof and pest controlled. Needless to say, my mom and I are super impressed. I intend on rehiring them for my future home maintenance and restoration projects. I highly recommend them to anyone who is seriously looking to hire professional caulkers who stand by their amazing craftsmanship and workmanship.
====Update on April 4, 2019====
Since the guys caulked my cracked concrete walkways and siding joints, I've noticed a remarkable 95% drop in ants, spiders, flies and wasp population outside my house. First time in my 30 years living in the same house, I can finally enjoy walking in my garden and not get bombarded by so much spiders, wasp and ant nests every where. My BC Hydro and BC Fortis bills also dropped this winter thanks to the extra insulation I get from having the siding joints caulked. Overall, I am very pleased with my decision to hire them. Highly recommend them to anyone looking for caulking services to improve home draft, pest control, and general home aesthetics.
I found dealing with Next Level Caulking to be a very professional company and Leo was very accommodating to our strata rules and did a top notch job and cleaned up the work site on completion as if he was never there working. I would recommend them to do any exterior caulking job.
Thank you very much. We appreciate your time and comments.
Leo is very professional. We had some very poor work done by another contractor who would not repair any of his work. The damage was quite substantial with water seeping into the garage causing extensive damage. Leo came to look and it really was guess work at the start to determine how to repair the damage. He came out on several occasions until it was finally fixed. This was not his problem but when he agreed to repair he didn't stop until he figured it out. We really appreciate his work ethic and would highly recommend him!
