We contracted A. O. Handy to restore the foundation of our 150 year old home. The fieldstone foundation needed interior tuckpointing -- and a lot more. We could not be more pleased with their work. They are outstanding.

I hired A O Handy for a chimney rebuild. Denis was in contact before, during, and after the project which was great especially when an issue arose regarding the old chimney. As for the project itself, everything was completed very timely, the crew cleaned up each day and were careful with personal items in the yard.

The crew at A.O. Handy Inc. did a great job tuckpointing our 8000 sq ft commercial building. They paid attention to detail and completed the work on schedule. Very easy to work with and brought attention to areas that I was not aware of and stayed on budget.
