I am Super pleased with Housworth the work that Housworth did for us during the month of December 2015 and would give them my highest possible recommendation.I contacted several firms for some help in getting a somewhat large home repair job done and Housworth was the only one who felt like they were up to the job ... and returned my queries and phone calls for estimates. (I did get visits from two other companies but they were reluctant to do the project.) So many companies don't even return queries ... even over Kudzu or "trust dale" or "yelp" ... (thats frustrating!) But Im glad Housworth responded to my calls.Richard Anderson was the project manager for our work (and it turns out, one of Housworth's owners). I found Richard to be personable, helpful and responsive to further questions and queries. We have a one level, "ranch"-style home that we have been in since the early '90s and is typical for the type of homes built in suburban Atlanta in the early '80s. We had the roof "redone" several years ago (by the much reviled "AtLroof" shysters that hit and damaged the roofing market in metro Atlanta a while back), but there has been a window on a vaulted part of the ceiling that is not a skylight, but high enough to be such, that has been cracked (by a bird? hail?) for months, to top it off, the exterior flashing and woodwork around the window needed substantial repair and during the rains of October 2015, it began to leak substantially. The entire window "area" needed to be "remodeled" with new glass and woodwork. Richard arrived and assessed the damage and unlike the firms who only gave me a cursory "we don't fix this kind of stuff" quote, Richard was actually able to show me the damage on top of the roof.How did Richard show me the damage? Well, I had an accident in 2014 and I certainly was not going to be getting on a ladder, but Richard had the latest technology on hand! He brought along a flying drone and guided it up to the roof to take photos and videos of the area that needed to be repair. I was able to see (and obtain) actual photos of the damage that truly showed what needed to be done aside from the fact I knew we had a leak. Due to the way the window was constructed, almost "resting" on the roof, Richard pointed out it was a problem waiting to happen as leaves and rainwater would collect in the area around the window. Richard gave us a great suggestion in having the bottom of window size reduced and raised up from the roof to allow less of the valley the original construction provided.The photos also depicted that the exterior siding of our home's small chimney was in equal disrepair.After getting, and okaying, a quote from Richard and Housworth, Richard got together a team consisting of skilled carpenters, painters, siding and drywall guys plus arranging for a glass company to cut glass to the new size. It took a couple weeks to get the window issue and chimney completed ... it was a lot of work ... but the end result was excellent. We definitely plan to use Housworth for future work on our home.
