I highly recommend Mergen and Company as honest, skilled, and professional contractors.
We called Mergen and Company to repair the internal and extermal wall, stud, and sill damage caused by termites. Peter came promptly to inspect the wall and provided a realistic and fair range cost estimate.
Once we agreed on a start date, his colleagues Ryan and Chris, arrived promptly and proceeded with the work with professionalism and courtesy.
When the extent of the damage became apparent after Ryan removed the interior wall, the cost estimate was clarified, but still within the range Peter had originally provided.
Chris and Ryan worked as a good team, removing the damaged studs and insulation, providing a thermal and water-proof lining on the gypsum wall, reinsulating, sistering the remaining studs with new wood, and installing a new sill that had been completely obliterated by the termites. They also removed pipes and cables that had become obsolete and properly reinstalled plumbing that they had had to remove in order to do the work properly. Ryan then installed the new sheet rock, and over a couple of days he and Chris cured it and painted it.
Ryan and Chris took photos of every step of the project, as requested. The project took 9 days, with the work being completed meticulously and properly by these honest and skilled carpenters. The finished wall looks far better than the wall has ever looked in the 11 years that we have lived in the house.
I would definitely use Mergen and Company again, and would recommend them to others in need of a good contractor.
