Our clients came to us with a dream for a sunroom addition where they could be comfortable and look out upon their gardens in which they enjoyed investing many hours and much care.
But how did it all come together? How did our clients progresss from concept to finished product? When we first met our clients they had clipped pictures from different magazines for inspiration. Each picture had a detail or an element they wanted included in their project. The pictures were very helpful in understanding the vision our clients had.
These are pictures I took of the magazine clips.
The rear of the house when we first saw it looked like this:
We commissioned Dave Dispirito from Homesite, Inc. for the design. Dave did a fantastic job of putting to paper the images our clients had in their heads. After several revisions to get it just right, work began on the room addition. (If you liked this room addition, you might also like this one: Family Room in Seaford)
First the footers were dug and poured:
The windows were custom made from Custom Vinyl Products with Low E/Argon energy efficient glass. The room was conditioned with a new mini-split air conditioner. The floor was tile. Interior lighting included sconces and ceiling fans with light kits.
Recently were were fortunate enough to be able to help Bionetics Corporation in Yorktown with some of their tenant build-out needs. We felt really great when we received the following review on Angie’s List from the owner. Description Of Work:
Built a separation wall, installed interior and firewall doors, provided electrical and data components, and provided the necessary HVAC. Member Comments:
They were professional, courteous, and paid attention to detail. They were responsive to my questions. I would certainly recommend their services.
Everything was fine with the work. I must say that it is apparent that Justin Foreman is a key component to your workforce. He is great to work with, as are you. You have been most responsive with communications.
I did submit the Angie’s List review. I must verify it at my home e-mail address before it is accepted. Have a great day.”
The actual Angie’s List review was even better!
“Justin Foreman was the coordinator for this job and we had the pleasurable experience of working with him on a previous job for our home. He is highly skilled, knowlegable, and professional. The work went extremely well: the workers were prompt and left the work area immaculate. We would hire this company again.”

A prospective client of ours asked Tim Meyer for a reference on Jim Hicks. Tim was kind enough to copy us on his response. Its quite humbling but too good not to post:
Thank you for inquiring about Jim Hicks. What can I say but “top notch”. I have known Jim for 15 years and his integrity is very important to him and his team. You see Jim went to the US Air Force Academy and is a very focused as well as bright individual and has brought those core values to his business and his team.
I have referred business to him over the past 15 years and all my clients have raved about Jim and his team. Jim will tell you the truth and not sell you anything that you don’t need. My clients have felt value and genuine comfort working with Jim.
Jim has done work me personally and has always made sure the job was done right and on time. Construction jobs always have issues and Jim and his team meet those head on in a very professional manner. I have watched Jim start his business and grow it over these years and I will put my name to him everytime.
