People are constantly stating how difficult it is to find a good contractor. 'Good' meaning, responsive, reliable, smart, confident in their work and that they do the work nicely and neatly. This is what it is to hire and work with Phillip Johnson Construction. They are one of the only construction companies I can think of that maintains relationships with their clients years (and decades for that matter) after the dust settles on a job. They return calls and respond to emails. Enough said. Whether two or ten years post-construction, never again do I have to look for a new contractor to come in and fix shoddy work OR think twice about who I'll call. All of it is well worth paying a little more for a company that lets me sleep well at night. In construction, you really do get what you pay for. Through trial and error, I've discovered it is rarely in my best interest to cut corners in the construction done at my home. I want it done the right way, the first time. And I want the peace of mind to know my contractor will answer the phone.
Before I listed my house in Fairmount for sale, I hired AR Sinclair General Contracting and Building (aka ARS GCB). Adam first arrived for our estimate appointment promptly. He made audio notes and also took pictures for reference. I had a itemized estimate within 24 hours. I decided to hire his company because of past referrals and how easily accessible he was. From Day 1, him and his team arrived on time. The renovations ranged from minor work like touch up painting, fixing knobs to major work including a new down spout and gutter system, drywalling, and basement drylocking. At the end of each day, the team cleaned up well. Adam did well to notify me of any changes or problems. What stood out for me the most was his dedication and attention to detail. There was no mediocrity with his work. His "doing his best work" attitude was unexpected in a contractor. If you're looking for a general contractor that is experienced, has a trusted team and is reasonable in price, consider ARS GCB.
I am a real estate agent and A.R. Sinclair (Adam) has done work both in my home and for my clients. His work is truly reliable and exceptional in a field of contractors that can be filled with unpredictability . In addition to that, and perhaps more importantly, Adam was able to have a thorough, intelligent, and informed conversation about the work and the process before we even began. His initial estimate took into account all aspects of the work: structural, aesthetic, timeframe, cleanup, price. And the finished product was beyond our hopes. I know that my clients have had similar experiences as well. If you are looking for high quality work from a contractor that appreciates detailed thought and execution, A.R. Sinclair is your man.
I had a leak in my apartment that caused damage to the ceiling drywall and two light fixtures. It was a relatively small job so getting a contractor to give me an estimate and do the work in a timely manner was tough. Adam was quick to respond to my phone call and showed up on time for the estimate (a big improvement over many other contractors I dealt with). The work itself was done quickly and the quality is top notch. Adam updated me regularly and kept to the original budget and timeline. I have no reservations in recommending Adam and his team.
Adam and team fixed my ceiling after some water damage from our heater. They were very quick, professional and the finished product was fantastic! I am happy to have everything back to normal thanks to him and his team.
Adam did an amazing job overseeing roof replacement, plumbing fix, floor sanding, and fireplace demolition on our West Philadelphia home. He's honest, hardworking, trustworthy, reliable, friendly, and reasonably priced.
