I’m writing this to anybody needing dome repair, remodeling or thinking of building a dome. John and the guys at New Age Construction, are the ONLY people to trust with your dome project.
They’re expert, competent, and fair.
Trying to keep this saga short….We had a dome built in 1982 by Domes America. That’s right…the last big recession complete with 21% construction loans and 16% mortgage. We chose a dome because it was quick to build, efficient, and a lot of room for the money. A very open design with 3 bedrooms, a loft and full preserved wood basement. A wonderful space that was perfect for a young professional starting his career. My wife and kids loved the open feeling while the wood stove in the center kept the house very comfortable during even -20 degree weather.
As with any home natural wear and tear dictated it was time last year for a remodel. I found John on the internet and after one call knew he was the man to oversee this entire project. From the newly added cupola, fire egress dormers, and roof and all things related to the dome itself he was the man in charge. After a few false starts we were able to find a local contractor to work with John on the project. I acted as general contractor to facilitate cooperation among the chosen trades while we moved to an apartment. Air-room, a local company in Chicago was chosen to assist in what was to become quite a major project. We moved out in February and back in December.
New doors, windows, floors siding, drywall refinished, upgraded appliances, and a new larger garage and gazebo rounded out the project (pun intended).
Key to the success of the entire project was John’s expertise and guidance. There were a lot of windows that had to be brought up to code as well as the cupola and new roof. His son Dan followed up with a roofing crew that is top notch. Just days after the roof was installed we had an episode of 80+ MPH winds. No blow offs or leaks. Since then we’ve had a similar event, again with no problems. I’m glad we got rid of those cedar shakes. The new look is modern as well as being the best looking roof the house ever had.
My wife was initially hesitant at the sheer size of the project but not a day goes by that she doesn’t comment on how much she loves our new dome.
I’m just a “domebell” through and through, and love it when big storms come in off Lake Michigan while I sit in my dome secure and safe in the knowledge that I had the best in the business at my disposal for this project. Do not hesitate to use John and his crew for your dome repair of build. They are good people trustworthy and expert at their craft.
