Recommendation for Gerardo, carpentry

Gerardo came recommended to me by another friend who was very pleased with his work. I needed shutters made for two large windows to cut out the light as well as reduce the street noise at night. My apt is in an old colonial building, so design, materials, and the resulting look were very important. 

I explained to Gerardo what I wanted (no written specs, photos, plans, etc). We exchanged ideas, made adjustments, and he took measurements away with him to calculate an estimate.

After I approved the estimate, he went to work and produced two beautiful sets of solid wood shutters, exactly as I had envisioned, mechanically, design, and color. 

After he made one set, he came to my apt to do an initial fitting to see if there were any tweaks needed before moving on to the 2nd set and applying the final coats.

He and his assistant/partner did the final installation a week later and they look awesome. See Photos.
