We were one of the many families in SE PA who had stucco failure. For us, the major issue was our windows leaking, but there also were hairline stucco cracks that failed (due to freeze/thaw cycles around here). We contacted Precision and Mike (owner) came out for a consult. He spent a lot of time explaining the problems, what corrections would be needed, and what materials would be used. His knowledge, thoroughness, and passion made us feel like he was the only guy for the job! We also wanted the security that our home would be water tight from here on. These reasons are why we went with Precision.The process of nailing down the contract took a while, in part because I have a great interest in home building (it's not my work, I just love it). My wife and I also wanted some traditional details to match our PA farmhouse style home. I said I wanted to be EXTREMELY involved and that's what happened. Communication throughout was open and collaborative.Our contract included stucco remediation, reframing parts of the roof for better rainwater management, all new windows, installation of Hardie Plank siding, several architectural details (like roof gable extensions, traditional window and dormer trim, etc.), new soffits/eaves/gutters, and new stucco on our chimney and entry (we decided we'd leave a tiny bit of stucco after feeling comfortable about how it would be installed).Once the old stucco and underlayment came off, we saw that we had major damage. Framing under a large family room window was totally rotted through and the lower wall had to be completely replaced. I watched the crew complete this work, and they were very detail oriented, ensuring everything that would be behind the siding was rock solid. This was the same for all areas they had to remediate. The house was completely wrapped with Drain Wrap and all seams neatly taped.New windows were next. The crew also removed and reset all entry doors including a large patio door. This latter work was so Precision could guarantee that the house would remain watertight once they were done. (We talked about this before we signed the contract, and I was blown away that a firm would go to these lengths.)Siding and trim then went up, and it looks amazing. Fit and finish is fantastic. The trim looks especially good. This was a big deal to us since we were looking for our windows to have an "old school" look. They look like you see in older houses, seamless with a traditional sill and the window sash set back. This was the single best contracting experience we've ever had. The work is impeccable, and the crew kept a neat jobsite. I think you can always improve things, and I'm going to qualify this by saying improvement for me comes down to how contractor and homeowner work together. It's not one sided. So here's some advice for folks contemplating a job like this:- if you have any details that you are particular about, work with the firm to get them drawn up or draw them yourself. In our case, we had some dormer trim and gable returns that needed reworking. The truth is that we weren't fully connected up on how the build would go. Luckily we caught these before every single instance was complete. Precision did not complain in the least about tearing some stuff out and redoing. Still, we felt bad as the crew had rework.- figure out as much as you can ahead of time and get it written into the contact, vs. doing a change order afterwards. There were several things we initially decided to leave as is but once we saw what the place was looking like, there was no way we could leave them looking the way they did when the rest of the place was so amazing.- One point about interior window and door trim. The standard approach for a job like this is for the contractor to carefully remove the existing trim and then reinstall it. Our interior trim looks fine, but in some cases the fit is not exactly like the original (nor is it fair to expect that.) We also had two large half round windows where the new ones were slightly larger than the original. Thus we had to purchase replacement trim. Make sure you talk this part through so you are aligned on how things will be done.- set up a regular time to meet with the jobsite Manager and find out what's going on for the day. We did talk with our PM quite often. A set time (as much as possible) might have allowed us to catch those couple things that had to be reworked.Two final thoughts. First, Precision was toward the high end of the bids that we obtained. I also think however that they are of the greatest value because of their knowledge of materials and techniques, work ethic, and the final quality of the work. The place looks absolutely great, and we know it is completely watertight. Second, the people are all top notch: owner, PM's, crews, office manager. Everyone has a high personal standard for their work and it absolutely shows. Have no doubt whatsoever about recommending them to anyone.
We found Mike and his team to be extremely professional,the work needed to be halted due to COVID restrictions but they were back on site as soon as they could. Their team of on-site guys were courteous, friendly and incredibly hard working, it was almost a pleasure to have them on site!The design input was also very helpful and they seemed to have an excellent appreciation of our needs, style and financial budget.
We worked with Precision to do a complete remediation of the exterior of our stucco home. We had never done any project quite so large and are glad we went with Precision. It was clear from the initial meetings that they have excellent project management and an experienced team, ensuring a successful project. The scope of the job was a bit intimidating at first but they took the time to educate us about every step of the process . Precision has an excellent team that helped us think through some design decisions, consider various out of the box options and ultimately transformed our home. The team at Precision was flexible, attentive to details and responsive, even when we made a number of last minute change orders. Precision dedicated a good deal of time and effort to promptly follow-up on all the details to ensure the end result was what we wanted. Throughout the entire process, the team was courteous, professional and just plain nice. We highly recommend Precision Contracting Services!
The company and the crew are fabulous. They respond to every question, need, and concern. They have an extremely high standard of work.

Recognized Excellence - Mr Mike Hyon was so informative and helpful to explain all the elements that went into this project. So many others from Mr Milton who was in charge of the workmen, Brian Kane’s team who replaced rotted wood as needed. Kristen Hyon who kept in touch with scheduling process and Mr John Dobson who was came and answered other detail questions when I had them.
This past summer, PCS completed an outstanding redo of the outside shell of my home, making it beautiful & safe! It was only later, with the cold Jan 2019, that I could feel how much more comfortable my home is (with lower heating costs). We chose PCS because they share our vision of a beautiful, safe and practicable home! Thanks!
Areas Of Satisfaction - Completeness and high quality of project. Professional, talented team.
The initial sales, scheduling, setup and work quality has been great. Things don't always go as planned but any changes were mostly well communicated. They were clear with issues that were found and remediation plans that were recommended were concise and reasonably priced for the quality of work that was performed. The only snafu was an ordering snafu that pushed a portion of the work form completion past the holiday we were hoping to have the outside completely finished. The snafu seemed to be poor planning on the ordering side as they waited until the last second to order outside shutters and then had some miscommunication pushing the order out further. Beyond that one issue everything was great, and for the size of the project to have such a small hiccup is a testament to their quality
Great team! Excellent workmanship! Great communication and worked with me on any of the issues I had.
I am very happy with Precision Contracting Services .
I met with 5 contractors for my stucco remediation project before selecting Precision Contracting Services (PCS). While all of the contractors were very professional, PCS was in a completely different league in terms of the detail of the proposal, the quality of the materials used, the manner in which they are used, the quality of their workmanship, and the explanation of their process.
They were an outstanding company with outstanding work. I would hire them anytime. I own a company and these guys are top notch.
We had heard about Precision through several sources, so we didn't even bother to shop around or compare quotes. And we were not disappointed. This is a contracting organization that is fair, professional, and honest. Their attention to detail, commitment to quality work, and dedication to customer satisfaction was exceptional. Our new windows, siding, and shutters look really great. All work was completed on time and on schedule. If you are like us, you will do yourself a favor and not waste your time with other companies. These guys (and gals) are the real deal. They do not rest until the work is done and done right.
We could not be more happy with the result of our project. We would recommend Precision Contracting Services to anyone!
