To Whom It May Concern,
This letter is being written as a thank you to Michael Aiello and his crew for the truly excellent job that they have recently done in our home. I have known Mike for years and have always counted on him to do any home improvement job of ours with precision, attention to detail, absolute respect for us and the house and most importantly, a true gift and talent for craftsmanship.
Our last project was a complete overhaul and renovation of the bottom floor of our house. We live in a high ranch style home with three children and were in great need of more living space. Michael came in and together we discussed the living difficulties and began to figure out answers. Mike is one of those rare people who is not only unbelievable at his profession, but cares about each job as though it were happening in his own house. He set about enclosing our garage to be used as a playroom for now; but framing it in such a way that a few years down the road it will easily be turned into extra bedrooms for our boys. The back den was completely gutted and redone with every amenity taken care of; lighting, electricity, plumbing, spackling, painting etc, in the same respectful and expedient way. Mike only associates himself with professionals who do things "the right way," as he insists that they be done and he is always there to oversee any work that he himself does not do.
During the course of the project as the downstairs became unlivable, Mike set about making sure that all of our needs were met upstairs and that he and the workers were as unobtrusive as possible, arriving when stated and always leaving the work area vacuumed and organized. I cannot tell you what a difference it makes to have this kind of consideration during construction. It kept the mess very minimal and made the whole project move along at a manageable pace.
Everything that we have ever done to our house that Michael took care of has held up beautifully. As I look around at our amazing new downstairs I see all of his efforts and am so grateful. . The beautiful stained wood doors throughout the room, the hard wood floor that he built piece by piece and the generous closets that are laid out so well that my life will now get a whole lot more organized. The two most exceptional pieces, however, are my favorite and really show
off his artistry: the custom built oak bookcase with a special heat box installed for the room complete with amazing ornate moldings and the built in office closet for my husband's home office area with the inside built to utilize every inch of space for him and with doors that open and slide back into the wall for comfort when he is working.
As we finish this project I am so excited but a little sad to not have Mike knocking on my door every morning. He is great to work with and nice to have around. Whenever he is working on a project other little things that are let go around the house start to get done as he always leaves extra time for that. As I stated earlier, every job is treated as his home and he really looks to do any improvement in such a way that it will not have to be done again. We cannot recommend him enough and feel very lucky to have had him make our home better every time he steps through the door. Thank you .
