    I just had my new kitchen cabinets installed by Ed. His bid was reasonable. He did not come up with any additional or hidden cost if I requested some additional items. He does explain how what and why things will be done before he does it so you can make up your mind before hand. He always cleaned up as he went rather than wait until the end of the day. He was able to do the job in a very timely manner that did not cause me any inconvenience. Thanks Ed, I will use you again on other projects soon.

    I was referred to Ed by a friend to help fix a door frame and garage door after a break-in. He came by the next day, took a look at the work, quoted me a price, and completed the work that day. He did a fantastic job and was so friendly and knowledgeable. He will now be my go-to guy. Thanks Ed!

    I called Ed to look at my front porch because I had old termite damage. He came out same day and provided reasonable quote and took the time to explain how he would repair the damage. He complete the job next day. He was not only on time, but completed job on time as described ! He is very knowledgable and I plan on using again. Thanks Ed...

    Ed did a GREAT job on some repairs to our 1936 home that were necessary before we could put it on the market. The project involved a lot of different skills - everything from lead paint removal and repair to interior painting, some kitchen remodel, drywall repair, bathroom remodeling, and other odds and ends. He was a great craftsman, very professional in his work, and honest, reasonable, and competitive in his rates. He was prompt, diligent, hard-working, and we had no complaints whatsoever. I would absolutely recommend Ed and Ten Star Construction to my friends and family, and anyone else in need of a skilled handyman, and would hire them again for any needs my family would have in the future.

    Ed has done five large scale restoration projects with our company, and numerous smaller projects. Nice sells because ugly doesn't...we value the same things as Ed and when your skilled labor values the same things as the property owner the construction process goes much more smoothly. We choose to work with Ed because he has always taken the time to really understand the intentions of our design work, although by now it is probably more intuitive because of the amount he has built with us.

    He just finished some laundry room work for us and we couldn't be happier. We've always done all of our own work before because we were seldom happy with the quality of "professionals" work, but crawling around isn't as easy as it used to be before two titanium knees. He took up old floor, laid cement board and porcelain tiles; moved plumbing fixtures; repaired and painted walls and ceiling; and hung a new door. Hard worker, very knowledgeable, and very competent and precise. Clean up was exceptional. Would use him again for any project.

Q. Describe the most common types of jobs you do for your clients.

A. Custom Kitchen and baths, stone walls and flooring, decks and archways. I do alot of repairs on lighting and plumbing.

Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

A. My advise would be: Don't always go with the cheapest price. Sometimes yes, but lets say you do and the work is not finished right, 2 choices, live with it or pay someone else to fix it right. Now you have paid twice the price.

Q. Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?

A. I would like to say because, I make my customers completely satisfied with my work. I go beyond my clients expectations. I listen to what they want done and do exactly what they expect.

Q. What do you like most about your job?

A. I like doing my job because I treat it as a statement of myself. I wont do the job if I can't do it right. When I'm done it looks very nice and done right.

Q. What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

A. They normally ask, How long have I been doing construction, and I answer over 25 years, or they ask what I would do with something I'm working on, maybe the design or the best way to do it... And I always answer with truth and honesty.

Q. What do you wish customers knew about you or your profession?

A. I'm extremely honest and hard working. I don't take short cuts if it involes making my work unsafe or dangerious to my client. I know alot about all the trades in residential construction and I try to do the best of my ability to save my client money without sacrificing the looks and integrity of the project.

Q. How did you decide to get in your line of work?

A. I started working for a roofing company at the age of 14. I liked building things, and then through the years I became very good at building things with my hands, I like working for myself because it never gets boring.

Q. Tell us about a recent job you did that you are particularly proud of.

A. Well, I'm proud of all my work. But the basement with the bookcase's is extremely nice. There is a hidden doorway in the bookcase. Rounded ceilings and hidden lighting, 5 archways, and a total of 30 lights in that section of the basement.

Q. Do you do any sort of continuing education to stay up on the latest developments in your field?

A. I have a degree in CAD And design, I do alot of designing to help my customers get that custom look. It's a signature of the work I offer.

Q. If you were advising someone who wanted to get into your profession, what would you suggest?

A. I would suggest? To study hard, and never refuse to listen to advise,I've been doing this for over 25yrs and I've learned new tricks all the time.So yes you can teach an old dog new tricks!!!
