I hired James to do both interior repointing and exterior structural brickwork on my house. From the initial estimate through the completion of the project, it was obvious James was experienced and knew the history of his craft. It was amazing to see him identify the type of brick and the year the house was built within seconds of looking at the wall.
James and his team acted with the utmost professionalism. They were courteous and diligent workers. They arrived on-time and finished the job earlier than I expected. They showed respect for my home by cleaning up a work area before proceeding to the next one. I was impressed by how quietly and unobtrusively they were able to complete the project. Also, as a dog owner I was happy to see they were dog friendly; always a concern of mine with contractors. With three dogs running around the house while they worked, they did not seem bothered at all.
I am extremely happy with the results; everything looks better than I had hoped. I was especially pleased by the repointing. Being that my house is over a century old, I was a bit worried about the new mortar matching the exterior mortar. However, it didn’t seem a problem at all for them. They were able to match the color nearly perfectly, making it hard to tell where one begins and the other ends.
I would highly recommend James for any brickwork you may need because of his excellent work practices and the quality of his work.
Sincerely, Michelle L. of the Baker District
