Fernando and his guys are honest, professional, reliable and do a quality job. They paid great attention to detail, cleaned up after themselves and even made sure my cat didn't escape! If you're looking for a trustworthy GC who hires quality subs - I highly recommend Fernando. You will not be disappointed.

The entire experience was excellent and without any problems. The work was finished at exactly the bid price (which was very competitive with others I received) despite the inevitable issues that arose in dealing with a house that was nearly 150 years old. Fernando was very pleasant to work with throughout the entire process, from the initial bid to the job completion. In addition, he was always flexible in terms of small issues we had not discussed previously, such as how the shed exterior would blend in with the house. His men arrived on time every day and totally cleaned up the work area at the end of the day, even sweeping saw dust off the driveway and using a magnet to pick up miscellaneous nails and staples that may have been on the ground. Fernando himself generally came by each morning to see what had been done and to answer any questions that may have arisen. In many places Fernando "overdid" to make sure that the work would last for years. I would recommend him highly and without reservation -- I will recommend him to my friends for any construction work that they might have and will certainly use him again myself when and if the need arises.
We had an idea to add a single car garage to the property that had a "period" design construction to match the existing house design form 1897. I found Fernando and read many great reviews about his responsiveness, expertise and affordability. Over the course of this project I can personally attest to all these accolades. We've worked with many contractors through the renovation of this home and property and have become very educated with hiring the right guy/gal/team to work with us. Fernando and his crew are amazing. Although in the middle of other projects, he carved out a couple hours to come over and discuss the project within a couple days of initial contact. He made great suggestions for things we hadn't considered during the ideation of the project. We discussed a "ballpark" spend which ended up to be very close to the actual at the end of the project. I was impressed by that. The town we live in has a VERY STRICT building dept.; Fernando worked with the inspector to ensure every tiny detail was handed from a code and permit standpoint - seriously, don't take that lightly; it could have easily been an ordeal. Some additional extra value came in with his team catching a couple errors in the architectural plans that should be corrected to ensure safety and stability of the structure and also catching an error made by another contractor working on the property that his team helped to correct as well. They really had our back on this project and wanted it to be perfect at completion. As stated above the garage design included arched door openings, a storage cupola built above the garage and an exterior fireplace that heats and outside seating area. From an aesthetics standpoint we were most concerned about the arched angles of the front door aligning with the arched angles of the door that would be installed post-framing - it was perfect. I couldn't be happier with it. To close comments, I'll just throw in that Fernando is very responsive and knowledgeable, his team is professional, they clean up each day after work; they provide service that is above and beyond what's expected and within budget.
They were great! They replaced the front porches on a 100 year old 2 family house.The price was excellent as was the quality of the work.Everything was well explained and all my questions were answered.The work was done on time and they were extremely neat.Best experience I've had and the only contractors I'll use in the future.
