We hired Mike to replace our mudroom and install a sunroom. We are very happy with the results, with Mike, with his crew, and most importantly our dog likes him.

Project: Build a Garage
AWESOMENESS at it's finest.!!!Mike and his crew did an excellent job building my new 2 bay door garage last summer as well as a roof overhang and he just finished fencing in my entire yard. The work was done promptly, professionally and flawless. He never proceeded until he knew exactly what I wanted to assure we were both on the same page. His crew were the most polite gentlemen that I ever experienced having work done at my home. I would highly recommend Mike for any building job. Thank you Mike!!

Review by in Freeport, ME
Mike took on a difficult water damage project that involved adding new footings and carry beam to a deck so that it could be separated from the building in order to correct water damage from a leaking slider. A new slider was installed, the half-wall below the deck was rebuilt and a new door was also installed for the daylight basement under the deck. Several other repairs were also handled during the time the crew was on site. Mike handled all with calm professionalism and brought all the work in on time and within his estimates. He is one of the best contractors we have ever worked with.

I hired Mike for the first time recently to troubleshoot and offer solutions on a few projects on my home. Mike responded to my initial inquiry within an hour and scheduled an appointment at my home. The project recently completed was the result of moisture damage due to an improperly installed deck. Mike removed my old deck and found that there was extensive water damage beyond what I initially had found. He quickly offered a solution. The damaged wood was replaced with pressure treated wood, and all areas around the deck were expertly sealed with the latest materials technology. Mike then proceeded to build a new deck that consists of 100% pressure treated 2 by 10 framing. The deck was flashed again by using the latest technology in materials and Mike's own expertise in how to flash the deck, after the area had been triple sealed. The finished product makes it apparent that Mike's attention to detail is second to none, and that the strength of this deck is nothing like I have ever seen. I would recommend Mike for any project big or small. He is a consummate professional, that has skills of an old school craftsman using all the latest technology and building techniques. If you hire Mike, "He Will Make It Right'.

Review by in Brunswick, ME
The quality of workmanship on our repaired front porch, stairs, spindles, lattice, and footers and new screen/storm door was that of a MASTER craftsman. The attention to the smallest detail was amazing. James answers emails and text messages promptly, was on time every day, cleaned up the work area perfectly. He was so professional and a very nice person. I would highly recommend him for any project on your home!!!!!!

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.

NOTE: Member service professional information confirmed as described above may change or expire over time; while HomeAdvisor attempts to maintain accurate and up-to-date information, and confirms changes when notified, we cannot guarantee that profile and screening information is accurate. Therefore, we recommend that before working with a service professional you verify that information presented is still current and/or acceptable to you.
