"The communication was perfect, the final project (a large one) came in exactly as quoted, and Carlos and his crew work FAST.
The long version: I needed to gut the kitchen on a 2 story, 100 year old home which included removing 2 load bearing walls. It was extremely difficult to compare kitchen remodel quotes because the wall removal line items were all over the place or could not be determined by the various remodelers we met with.
I decided to remove the walls before I got any additional remodel quotes. I found Skyline Framing on Craigslist, and then did my due diligence reading reviews and verifying they have a current license (for most projects I don't care about licensing, but you never want to take a chance with structural). I spoke to a few contractors, received a few quotes - Carlos thought of a few options the other contractors had not - but when comparing apples to apples he was charging 30% less than the next lowest quote, and because of his knowledge and professionalism I had no reservations about working with him.
From the time I handed him the plans that were approved by the city, the entire job took 7 business days to complete (and keep in mind he had to go to the foundation and pour new concrete pads to support the new beams - and the job required 2 city inspections). These guys work FAST!"
