Had my laundry room redone and it is just perfect! I had never undergone a project like this before and they were so willing to answer all of my questions to make sure that I felt comfortable. The gentlemen who came to perform the project were just wonderful and made sure everything was precisely to my liking. Rudy and Kimberly were excellent to work with as well. Will definitely have them back (hopefully the same crew) for future remodeling projects! Before and after photos included!

Had a wonderful experience with GPS for my partial guest BR remodel (demo cabinets,counter,sinks, new tile floor, drywall repair/paint, new vanity install with sink hardware and mirrors). Very professional, pleasant workers who were timely, worked very hard, and finished the project in a day. Paid much attention to detail and consulted me for details in question (i.e. baseboard design, exact mirror location, etc..). I will definitely use them again for the remainder of the BR remodel-tub/shower and tile remodel. One of the best finds on Thumbtack. Thank you GPS.

Details: Fix bathroom cabinets or fixtures • Fix other damage (mold, termites) • Update style • Guest bath • Home

Kim the Project coordinator was responsive and polite. Rudy and team were AWESOME!! Probably THE BEST construction/project team we have ever worked with!! We have a couple of other upgrade projects on the list...this is the group and company I want working on them. We were not disappointed and in fact are ecstatic about our finished project! I would recommend GPS to anyone.

Details: Yes, the patio will be structurally connected to buildings • Residential

Worked with GPS to get back patio built. They handled the Permits, Blueprints and construction. Were there when they said they would be, courteous, professional and available at any time for questions. Patio turned out great and the crew was terrific.

Details: I have sketches and/or a basic idea of the project • Replacement of portions of existing structure • Less than 500 sq ft • Residential

Dan, We very much appreciate your great review of our company and its terrific employees. Your patio looks fantastic and is a high quality, added feature to your home. Mike enjoyed meeting you and he thanks you for the quick tour of the project. You were equally impressive as our client, it is a pleasure to work with individuals that understand the construction process, know exactly what they want and remain patient as we strive to deliver the best possible end result. We hope we can be of service to you and yours should another home improvement or new addition project take shape in the years to come. Thank you for your business and trust in GPS. Best, GPS Customer Service

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Our service does require an on-site visit (provided at no charge in our market areas) so that all the details can be collected to properly service the needs of our clients. No matter if the project is brand new construction, a minor or major remodel or a remediation or emergency situation, true and accurate pricing requires data collection, site awareness and the determinations for equipment, materials, labor and product needs. Those who will quote site unseen will have to change their quote (later on) or have built-in price protection that will only serve themselves.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    GPS is different and much of what we do that separates us from our competitors are trade secrets - literally. But, we can offer in answer to this question that most of our success lies in 'listening'. We are all about the client, their desires and needs or for those looking for direction or advice, we enjoy that too. It is such a simple concept, but so few businesses ever master the art of satisfying their clients - completely, each and every time. We meet with our clients and prospects, follow their lead, and augment their projects when asked to do so. We then communicate continuously until we have delivered on their vision. No lip service, no excuses, just a focused effort to generate results, create associations and enjoy the work and the relationships.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    We are constantly gaining knowledge, attending seminars & events and our key people are required to maintain their certifications through continuing education. The Founder of the company speaks regularly to audiences within the industry and to real estate professionals, builders and others related to the development, construction and maintenance of real property.
