I had a great experience with Keelin and Barry. They were both very helpful and very honest. In all renovations there will be unforeseen problems. Barry and Keelin came up with solutions and were both very fair with pricing. They were always professional, courteous and worked within the buildings rules. The work they did was top notch.
They were flexible with changes in plan and were very honest and fair about pricing. Also always the polite Irish lads. It was a pleasure working with them .
They rose to the occasion every time. We worked together and found solutions. They were open to my changes. It was a collaboration which worked well.
