    Know any good contractors in the DM metro?

    I need one ASAP for about 1-2 weeks worth of work doing some finish and detail work on my house. I'd like to be able to move sooner than later, but there's a long list of stuff - drywall patching/repair, lots of trim cutting and installation, some tile work, etc. - that needs to be done before the house is ready to go on the market. I'd love to tackle some of it myself, but I'm not too handy and with a full time job there's just not enough time. PM me if you know anyone who's competent and can start sooner than later. Thanks, Cyclone Nation!

    Kenny Bjorland is as good as it gets. When my wife and I were getting her house ready for sale we had Kenny come in and do the same types of stuff. I've known him all my life and he is fair in his price and does outstanding work. Great guy to get along with too.

    A buddy of mine does this stuff as a side business and does great work. He is real cheap as well since its a side business just for extra cash. Private message me for his number to speak with him if you would like to check into it.

    Paul Knudsen. Been doing that kind of work for at least 25 years. PM me for his phone number.

    "ASAP" and good are sometimes mutually exclusive (not always, you may get lucky). The better contractors seem to be scheduled out a little ways on a consistent basis, so the ability to jump right on what you have may be a red flag. Just a word to the wise.
