“In late spring 2017, a Needham neighbor was having some work performed to rebuild their 3 season screened porch (floor joists, new wood floor, posts, screens, etc.) due to some wood rot. I dropped in one day to review the project and met Chris Jordan. I was impressed by the quality of his work. My wife and I had discussed re-doing our mid 1950’s three season jalousie window porch into a four season sun room.
Chris came over one afternoon to review our potential project. We discussed our ideas for the space and he gave us a few of his own ideas and options. In about a week after the visit, he came back with what we felt was an excellent plan to make a conversion of our three season porch (mostly it had become a storage area) into a quality and efficient new “sun room”. The pricing was reasonable and complete. He covered everything in the project including demolition and removal of necessary stuff, installation of new Harvey sliding windows and exterior door, ceiling and wall insulation, new plaster ceiling, electric baseboard service, all electrical work, Nantucket beadboard walls, and all carpentry. The only extras we were responsible for were floor tile, window treatments, ceiling fan unit, and painting (he had the painter he recommended give us a proposal, but we paid Chris directly for the painter’s services).
Chris started the day he said he would, demolishing the old walls, windows, and ceiling back to the studs in one day. He had a on-wheels dumpster on site for less than 24 hours. Within a few days he had done the necessary work to the infrastructure so that the custom windows could be ordered. The delivery of the windows took slightly longer than we both expected, but once they arrived the project got back on track. I was very impressed with the quality of the carpentry, from the matching of the moldings to the rest of the house, the multiple quality mitre joints, and the last minute idea (no up charge) to make the window sill wider so it could hold my wife’s flower pots.
Chris used quality subcontractors (electric, plastering, flooring installation, and painting), but did the rest of the project by himself. We were very impressed with how clean he left the site each afternoon, how he was always there when he said he would be, and the quality of the painter he used. He installed the window treatments and TV wall bracket at no additional cost too.
We couldn’t be happier with the finished project and we recommend Chris and Jordan Custom without reservation.”
