Finally! Porch repairs look imminent.

We found someone to fix the porch!

For a couple of years we’ve been looking for someone to fix our porch, contractors came and went, each telling us the job was too small for them to do.

We sort of gave up and hoped we’d be able to get a friend to patch it.

However, when the bottom step fell off in October we renewed the search with vigor. Praying the city wouldn’t see it and fine us.

Every contractor we called did not call us back.

Once again, I began a search, and again, no one would consider the job.

We thought we had someone through a friend of a friend, but we never heard back from that person. Then someone else found what looked like a promising lead, sent it to me, and that contractor also did not call back.

In the wee hours of last night I went on a hunt vowing to do it all night if necessary.

A search of cement porch repairs found “Porch.” Once on Porch, I punched in my project, zip code, and other information. Today we had a call and a warm body show up at the house, and by 6 p.m. had an estimate in hand.

Yes, he’s hired.
