 I recently had to have extensive termite damage repaired at my home including re-doing my whole kitchen, replacing a stairway to upstairs, redoing a laundry room and replacing a good portion of the back of my house. I could not have been more pleased with the excellent work done by Doug and his crew. The whole project far exceeded my expectations. My kitchen and the new stairs are just beautiful. Doug and his crew were efficient, well-mannered and excellent workers. I would highly recommend them. 

 Within a short time, we were able to dispatch a crew and construct a temporary wall that would secure, insulate, and support the roof and ceiling of the home.  Once the temporary wall was in place, we could then demolish and remove the compromised load bearing wall. By completion of the job, we had replaced the entire rear portion of the two story home.  During the process we were able to make improvements, as well as a little bit of remodeling at the homeowner’s request. We worked to ensure that the cost of this unexpected repair was kept as low as possible for our client.

     In the fall of 2014, we serviced a home in need of plaster
repair.  The repair appeared minor, just a crack accompanied with paint peeling on the kitchen ceiling located in the rear of the residence.  However, not long into the repair, our technician noticed a softness in the wood and discovered live termites!  At the homeowner’s request, he then tracked how far the damage was along the rear of the home.  After further examination, it was clear that the entire wall of the home had been compromised by the termite infestation.
