Russ is a great contractor because he’s knowledgeable, hard-working and has a real pride in his craft. He has the skills and the intelligence to design a project from the ground up, and the thoughtfulness and flexibility to figure out solutions to problems that arise over the course of the project; he’s also good at meeting deadlines under pressure, and is good at controlling costs. He’s an excellent fellow, very honest and easy to get along with; he and his crew are always unfailingly pleasant and respectful when working in our home, and very considerate of our needs. I can personally vouch for him – he has a key to our house.
Russell and TBDG have completed many projects in our home in Fairmount over the years. Notably we converted a second-floor bedroom into a master bath, completely renovated our third floor, but our most impressive endeavor was to entirely reverse the staircase that led from our second to third floor to our 100-year-old row home. Russell’s design sensibility is fantastic and moreover, he really loves interior space and, luckily for us, he single-handedly made a master-stroke with the stairwell turn that is by far the most important (and best) design decision we made in the renovation of our home.
Russ Baldwin has done work in my home in Wynnewood over the course of the past 15 years. I highly recommend Russ Baldwin. He is reliable, has a wonderful sense of space, light and the way in which people live and function in a room. The men who work for him have always been both highly skilled and pleasant to have in my home.
