“I was fortunate to be introduced to Jim Pitcher (CRC Builders Inc) in 2012 by a neighbor. In 2012-2013 CRC carried out extensive modifications to my home, reworking the ineffective/missing waterproof flashing’s on both upper floor logias,the surrounds of two large windows above the house main entry door and the complete replacement of a surface drain on a large travertine tiled terrace.”
Work on the logias involved temporarily removing and replacing cast concrete balustrades/piers and pillars and opening the tiled decks. Source of the leakages into the rooms below was found to be inadequate flashing’s. On completion of this repair extensive work CRC employees put the logias back in perfect watertight and visual condition. Jim Pitcher himself opened the interior ceilings and walls, replaced the damaged sheet rock. CRC then painted the interior walls and re-stuccoed the exterior walls to match the undamaged parts.
The leaking surface drain was replaced in its entirety. The travertine tiles in way of the drain were removed and replaced on completion of the work. Jim Pitcher worked with me in designing a two tier surface drain and personally designed and installed piping from the drain to route the water into an existing subsoil drainage system. On completion of this project the area matched the existing undisturbed surrounds
Since this major work I have employed CRC to:- re-grout the master bath shower remove the existing (leaking) chimney cap. Found the remodelers had actually driven nails thru the “waterproof” pan. CRC then installed a new support structure for a custom copper cap and supervised the crane lift and installation of the large copper cap. Latest CRC project on my home was, in 2017, to completely rework the flashing’s between all vertical stuccoed walls and the travertine terrace and both logia decks.
After 8+ years of watching small wet patches on the interior ceilings and walls of my home CRC Builders have reworked the shoddy workmanship of the remodeling contractor’s subs and I now have a tight, leak-proof, home.
Thank you Jim Pitcher”
