It has been 20 years since Farina & Sons did a major renovation to our Winter Park home. It was exciting to see the addition of 1,000 sq. ft and a deluxe master bedroom/bath, new front elevation, new flooring, stucco exterior and a new front entrance portico. A modest remodel by your usual standards, even in 1995, but I felt it received the same attention to detail given to your million dollar projects. It was a treat to watch the daily, hands-on craftsmanship that went into my home, often personally supervised and built by your father Mario. He balanced talent and humility as few do nowadays.
Our home won an award in its class. I recognized at the time that award-winning quality costs a little more and for me it was money well spent. My peace of mind from the start was justified in the end as the enduring quality shows. After 20 years the stucco exterior has never needed repair. I have never repainted the exterior, which remains attractive. The tile flooring is excellent with no repairs needed. In short, I have been able to enjoy a beautiful, affordable, stylish home in a great neighborhood, with a minimum of the headaches that plague even new home buyers.
Thank you for the quality of your work that stands the test of time. Any homeowner fortunate to work with you will likely be satisfied for the long haul. I want to offer my freely-given, unsolicited gratitude.
