To whom it may concern,
I have worked with Howard
and Roger Polo on many projects since opening my architectural
practice in Mendham. The projects that we have worked on
together cover a fairly wide range in terms of size, style, and
complexity, but they all have in common the fact that they were
successful for everyone involved. In my experience, success in
residential projects is achieved through attention to detail and
The Polo's are excellent
builders. They are very knowledgeable and bring this knowledge
to bear through a consistent concern for quality and attention
to detail. As an architect, I am always concerned with the
translation of my drawings, and thus the client's wishes, into a
built reality. Howard and Roger have a wonderful ability to not
only translate the design into reality but to bring an
additional depth of quality to the work as well.
It is not uncommon to find
builders who build well but who don't do a good job of
communicating with their clients. The Polo's, however,
communicate very well, which has meant that the clients on my
projects have been kept well informed and have felt that they
were fully in control of their project. The Polo's have done an
excellent job of maintain my client's sense that their interests
were paramount throughout what is often a difficult process.
My success as an architect
depends on my clients feeling good about not only the work they
have done, but about the participants in the process as well.
The jobs that I have done with Howard and Roger Polo have
uniformly met this expectation.
I would have no hesitation
in recommending Howard and Roger Polo as builders of the highest
merit. In my 13 years in custom residential practice the Polo's
rank right at the top among the many excellent contractors and
builders with whom I have worked.
