We used Creviston Construction for a ceiling repair in our kitchen. The work was completed perfectly to our needs. They matched the texture of the original surface and the repair is not noticeable; it blends right in. The owner and his team were very professional and dependable and reliable. I would definitely use their company again and am recommending it to all of my friends. Thank you!
Lane is very professional and prompt in his response. Showed up in an hour agter the initial phone call, fixed my problem, indicated where the leak was and charged very reasonably. He is a handy man with many contacts in the construction industry. We highly recommend him. Bankim
Dave was on time and on budget, This means everything! His work was quality and he is very professional. Responds quickly when texted or called. There is nothing worse than not having communication with contactors during a project. Arrived to look at job and started within a few days and was there until finished. As the owner and the person who bid the job he was also the person on the job every day with his crew. I would highly recommend him, being a superintendent for a mechanical contractor I don't just say things like this unless deserved.
On time, thorough inspection, walked me through the findings and mailed me a hard copy with full pictures. Having a construction background, he was also able to give me an idea of processes and costs to do improvements that we are considering. VERY HELPFUL!
Photo updates to follow First, I should say that for a big project like this, I would hire John again, bottom line. That is probably the most straightforward way to assess the renovation as a whole. We hear nightmare stories all the time about significant (and even minor) home renovations and, while we had our frustrations, we went through a big job with few significant complaints. Planning/cost: Initially discussing the project, John was extremely receptive to our budget needs: we had saved up a very specific amount of money, and needed to complete two big projects in order to make the house more appealing to future renters (as we plan to move to a home with my wife's parents for the foreseeable future). The house had only one bathroom, even though it was approximately 1600 square feet. We needed to fix that if any families were going to rent. John understood and very clearly explained where we would be able to save money, what he would charge us for his work, for materials he bought vs. materials we provided, the realistic areas we could go cheap and the areas we couldn't scrimp on. John's price was not just competitive, but frankly made the difference between us being able to have these two complete and dramatic projects vs. one that would have left us feeling wanting. However, it was the price along with the fact that his clients indicated he was flexible and budget sensitive through the whole project that made the decision for us. (We've certainly dealt with people who claim to be able to work with "x" budget, and then everything somehow inflates dramatically over time.) We had a laundry/utility room that was separated from the main house by a breezeway. John connected it to the main house with brick in the same style as the house. He converted the room to a full bath and laundry room with a large shower. Simultaneously, he opened up the bare backyard wall of the main house, installing larger windows and glass french doors. Quality of work/cleanliness: John completed a great deal of the work himself, using a subcontractor to perform most of the brick work and the drywall. The quality, functionality, and look of the work overall was simply fantastic. Day after day they meticulously cleaned up their work, leaving as little footprint as possible on our day to day lives throughout the process, which, frankly reduced the stress that I believe tends to naturally accumulate during such projects. Once we paint it I believe the new brick will be entirely indistinguishable from the old. The brick has extremely clean lines in the same pattern as the existing work, and the finishing work around the windows and doors is excellent. We did have a brief ordeal flushing out a clog that seemed to result from construction debris, but ultimately the plumbing is excellent. Similarly, the shower tile work ultimately is terrific, but we did have a problem with the layout due to an error that John corrected, and it looks wonderful. In the bathroom, he took what was basically a junk/laundry room and installed an elegantly laid out vanity, toilet, laundry hookups on one side, and a massive shower, and utility/cleanup sink on the other, with room to spare. He added a simple half-wall to divide the toilet from the washer/dryer that works perfectly to separate the space. The shower he created for us is enormous and beautiful. Every time we go in the room, we are impressed all over again. The whole room could have appeared like a necessary appendage stuck on to the rest of the house, but that large, bright tile shower makes the room look elegant. Flexibility: I hated to lose my very functional utility sink from that room and hadn't planned for a replacement; however, John helped by coming up with a clever solution to put a sealed brick sink in with the water heater closet. which works perfectly. It's a clean, and very functional solution that I constantly appreciate having, though it was certainly a significant adjustment for him. When we requested adjustments, it felt as though John quoted a bit high to accommodate time and materials (and his added stress). But all in all he was fair and up front about the work, his time, and our options. That being said, there were some frustrations: Our frustrations all come down to communication and documentation. I don't fault John for all of this - his talent lies in the work he does; had we been more on the ball, we would have been more clear and organized ourselves. We had any number of preliminary discussions with John, and agreed to three or four major things up front, that satisfied us the work could be done in a way that would meet all of our needs. But as the project began and progressed, numerous details were forgotten. Specifically, the layout of the utility room and the physical requirements for the french doors to be installed. John repeatedly asked how we wanted to accommodate something as if we had not already come to a conclusion on the matter and we would essentially have to re-figure it out. Specifically, he forgot the layout that best accommodated all of the elements I mentioned above, and he forgot that he would have to "float" the bathroom wall, requiring a different (pricier) toilet than originally planned. Additionally, when he went to start work on the french doors, he had to take extra time to order a lintel that would span the entire length rather than two separate lintels - but, of course these were dimensions he'd known since originally planning the project. Things like this ultimately got worked out to our satisfaction, with one frustrating exception, but if either of us had documented what we'd agreed upon, it would have saved a great deal of hassle and debate, as my wife and I had to re-discuss everything ourselves as well, which reinforced John's feeling that we'd never come to a final agreement to begin with. Time/documentation: While we believe John was more than fair in his billing, the lack of clear, consistent documented days/hours prevented us from having a clear, concrete idea where we stood financially during the project. This impacted us when, in a couple of instances, we did ask for changes (such as installing the utility sink) and he quoted us for the change, though we had no idea whether we were in the high or low end of the overall planned project. All of this is to say: John worked it all out, and he did so in a way that was affordable, excellent, excellent, quality, beautiful work. But, in order to avoid frustration, agreements as to planning should be documented and ongoing days/hours worked should be documented. This would help avoid revisiting complicated plans and would allow for adjustments without having to be in the dark about the bottom line. Day in, day out, we are grateful for the work John did, and that it didn't eat us alive financially, because he did come in right in line with the budget. We love looking through our fantastic glass doors every morning. We have guests stay with us for a day or two, and love having a beautiful distinct bathroom they can use when they stay with us. We love knowing they won't feel they're entering into some dark corner of the house tacked on because it had to be, but that there's a beautiful bath with plenty of space that they can make themselves feel at home in.
I got a special deal from AAA for two hours of general contractor work from Global Prevention Services. We have a stucco wall that's about two feet high around a courtyard in front of our home that had a large crack in it, and two hours seemed about right for someone to fill in the crack and paint the wall. The man who came was eager to get the job done, gathered the filler and paint and went to work. Before he painted, he showed us the repaired seam and explained what he had to do since the crack was rather wide. He was competent, friendly and efficient, and if we need a contractor in the future, we won't hesitate to call Global Prevention Services.
So far John has been very responsive and helping me through the process of correcting the many mistakes of my previous contractor. I look forward to proceeding and seeing Johns work. I am confident it will be good, however will update review once we are through construction. Integrity and Honesty are what I rate on, and so far he has been that with me.
Asked for a patio cover over the master suite French doors that matched our HUGE cover on the kitchen side of the house. They did exactly what I asked for! On time. On budget! Quite possibly the cleanest construction team I've ever seen...left the yard as they found it. I'd recommend them 110% and plan to call them again for some inside remodeling I have in mind.
Rick was extremely helpful and did an excellent job with the work we needed done. Not only was it extremely affordable it was done ahead of schedule and he did not hesitate to help us out on more work we needed done. I would highly recommend using Five Star Landscaping. I plan on having them do more work for us in the future.
Joi was a pleasure to work with. She did a great job designing our fireplace and builtins. She saw the whole project through, from design to installation. I am so happy with the outcome. Thank you Joi
I used LCL Construction to extend our pool decking. They did a great job, were prompt and responsive through the entire process and was a pleasure to work with. I would definitely hire them again.
We have worked with Carson Rodgers on four projects. A complete master bath remodel, a complete kitchen remodel, a complete secondary bath remodel, and an exterior maintenance rebuild of the patio cover area. The two baths were each about 60 days, with the kitchen remodel taking 90+ days. We enjoyed working with Carson on these projects because of his communication skills of keeping us in the loop as to what was going on and when various phases were going to be completed. While remodeling will always produce some surprises, Carson was always on top of them and walked us through how they were going to be resolved. The quality of work both in the design phase and construction was outstanding. The most significant delay that we experienced with all three remodels was with the plumbing fixtures - whatever availability times we were given when the orders were placed could be tripled. We will use Carson Rodgers on any future projects and have recommended him to friends and neighbors.
Alan and his crew at Alin Design Construction did a terrific job on the my renovation project! Always professional, on time, listened to what I wanted, and delivered exactly as promised! I will definitely be calling them for all my renovation projects!
Pete is very professiomal. Does the work efficiently and effectively. He consults with us on how and what is to be done and does the job on time and within the estimate. I will surely avail of his services again in my future home improvement projects
True professional in all aspects of design and construction. Meticulous and detailed oriented. Caring and mindful of budget constraints. Very knowledgeable in all aspects of construction.
I highly recommend Schembri Engineers. I am a repeat customer for property inspections, and also home renovation and new constructions plans. They even submitted our plans to the city for permitting!
We contracted DK Builders in January to help us install new hardwood flooring throughout our entire home. The owner Danny went above and beyond to make sure we met all deadlines and that the highest quality of work was done. Considering we were still living in the house during the construction we did not make the job easy for them with 2 little kids running around but his crew was super nice and patient! The best part was that he was able to save us roughly 6k from quotes we received ourselves for the EXACT same flooring!!! Whatever project you need done Danny is your guy and if you need a referral feel free to call me 602.325.6009. Rory
We had a great experience with Gnu Legacy. They were always honest and open with us, right from the beginning. It took us a while to get use to the idea of their style of construction, but it was incredibly smooth and simple. I would recommend Gnu Legacy to anyone. They did a great job.
