People You Should Know

Things are moving fast at the Colclough House. In the past few weeks, so many experts have put their stamp on this historic restoration. Here’s the first list of contractors who’ve exceeded our expectations.

Asbestos removal. We hope you never find asbestos in your home, but, if you do, call ABControl. Call Jeff at 919-363-7575.


Foundation Repair and Reconstruction. Thanks to Ken Gash at Turnlight Partners, our foundation is rock-solid. Not sure why this extremely tall man chose to work in short spaces, but we’re sure glad he did. Call Ken at 919-475-8866.


Project Management and Site Supervision. We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again…we’re super lucky to have Trinity Build/Design on our side. Steven manages the sub-contractors, schedules, and budget, and Trent directs the work on-site. We’ve learned so much hanging with them on a daily basis. If you need a GC, give Lee a call at 704-277-2699.


Plumbing. I can’t believe I’m saying this, but seeing the plumbing installed was really exciting. I guess this was the first sign of new, modern materials installed in this old home. Greene Hunt Plumbing installed the rough-in (all the plumbing behind the walls and under the house) with meticulous precision. Archie seems to be a perfectionist. You can reach Greene Hunt at 919-291-5209.

Heating and Air. We chose to work with Brown’s Heating and Air Conditioning because they met all three criteria: high-quality, on-time, and on-budget. Bobby provided us with a great estimate for the highest-quality Trane products including gas furnaces. And, they’re delivering right-on schedule. Give Bobby a call at 336-570-2321.

Tree Removal. The team of tree experts with Gonzales Tree Care swooped in yesterday and removed one large tree and numerous huge branches over the house. In less than two hours, they cleaned up and drove away. Brian provided us with an expert evaluation of our tree situation along with fair price options. Call Brian at 919-231-9244.
