Although our project was out of the realm of construction...we needed a tar and gravel roof repaired, along with some tile work on another part of the roof...Peter was very knowledgeable and worked with us to plan a repair option at reasonable cost. The project was finished on budget and on time with minimal disruption. I would certainly consider them for other projects down the line.Oct 9, 2018
Pete and his crew did high quality work, when the work was performed by themselves. Any work they hired out was generally lacking in quality and care, which required Pete and his crew to do rework (which I got double billed for). Pete did a terrible job at estimating the total cost and time to complete, with our project coming in almost 75% over budget! If cost is less of an issue and you only need carpentry work done, I would recommend Pete and team (Ocean Break).Sep 18, 2018VerifiedOcean Break Construction LLC's reply
Hi Peter, Thank you for your review and allowing us the opportunity to help with your remodel project. I always aim to do my best! Anything else is just unacceptable. I am happy that you were pleased with the work we provided. Unfortunately I can’t always control what my subs do but I do keep a close eye on how they are performing. That’s my job. I was only off time wise by about 10 days and considering the amount of work ( 8 room remodel kitchen / bath two bedrooms sunroom and two common rooms ) and different schedules for subs and not letting one day go to waste. In this line of work that’s pretty good. Cost wise I did my best to keep it as affordable as I could. I did not mark up materials or add onto subs bills. I Didn’t charge 35 plus hours for the work I had to do to bring it up to our quality of acceptance. This was from all the extra plaster work that was done. We figured on three rooms but all 8 rooms were done. So that added quite a bit of extra work unfortunately and also fortunately because the apartment looks great with all new walls and ceilings. My painter fell through and we had to pick up the paint brushes and most certainly did a great job and probably better than most “professional “ painters out there. This is where we could have saved a little on cost. (My apologies). A wise old carpenter once told me a long time ago when I first started “ in construction there are always going to be a series of compromises that arise, you just have to do your best.” It was a pleasure working for you, you guys put your trust in us and I did everything I could to deliver on what I had promised. I think the project came out great and the place looks as new as you can make a hundred year old house after years of upgrades and add on’s. Thank you again Peter ! As I mentioned before please let me know if I can be of service with any other future projects. Peter Owner OBC
I hired Ocean Break Construction to replace the wood siding on the front of my house and to repair some of the window trim. Peter and his team did such a great job I had them return to do additional work. Peter provided a professional detail estimate of the work to be performed. He was always on time and completed the work on schedule. He also made sure that everything needed done was done, even if it was beyond the original scope of the proposal. For these reasons I highly recommend Ocean Break Construction.Oct 7, 2018
Peter has done a few projects for us, and has always been courteous and professional. We have always been pleased with the results!Mar 28, 2018
I had Peter remodel my kitchen and bathroom this fall and I love my new kitchen and bath. He was great to work with; showed up on time, always returned phone calls and was patient / helpful with product and design decisions. He got the job done on time. Will use him again for future projects.Feb 18, 2018Ocean Break Construction LLC's reply
