I hired Mike originally to remove a deck and slider and put in french doors and a juliette balcony. Then had him do 2 4x6' windows. The work has been great and he is easy to work with. Now looking at him doing our guest bath and then the master bath. Saw his work on other projects prior to hiring and it was quality work well done. He has been responsive with email and text progress updates and his billing is spot on the quotes no surprises. Job well done so far!Oct 29, 2018Verified

Mike is a great contractor to work with.Jul 3, 2018Verified
Michael is very responsive! This was my first time using Thumbtack so I didn't know what to expect and was very pleased how fast the entire process was. We discussed the project and he came over a few days later for the estimate. Scheduling was easy and it did not take a long time to get on their calendar, which was a huge benefit for us. We are very happy that we can start enjoying our backyard a little more now that our pergola is restored and we know it is safe and in good shape! Having a history of family members in various trades, including construction, I know Michael is running his business professionally. Contract, invoices, deposit amount, and payment are all what you would expect from a licensed company. If Crisman Builders reaches out on your project, make sure you connect and talk to Michael. He will be the first person I call for our next project.Jun 27, 2018Verified

Starting off by scheduling an onsite appointment to take a look at the property. Once we meet with the Owner(s) and discuss the project, we take our measurements, notes and photographs. We then estimate the job and submit our bid to the Owner normally with-in 24 to 48 hours depending on the size of the job. When the Owner chooses to proceed,we send in a contract, await the Owners signature and we schedule in the job
