We own a historic building in the French Quarter of New Orleans. We have been through a number of general contractors who either inflate bills or inflate jobs to unimaginable expense and unnecessary complexity. But then we found a gem of a general contractor, John Stevens, and since, we can rest easy. We had a pipe that burst in a January freeze on the third floor. The internal flood ruined the ceiling, walls and floors of rooms in all three levels. Because of inaccessibility, it was difficult to find a reputable and fair contractor. Our plumber referred John to us. We were in despair. John came onto the scene, gave us a fair bid, quickly began the huge project, and returned the old house to better than its pre-flood state, its former grandeur. He worked to coordinate all our subs. We use his services now as our sole contractor. We whole-heartedly recommend John and his contractor service. We can rest easy knowing he is keeping our property in a proper state since the massive restoration.
