Jose and his crew did a fantastic job in demo and pouring new croncrete for my patio, I did 4 bids on how much would it cost and Jose gave me excellent price, and the outcome was great , concrete was beautiful, I will reach out to him for additional renovations for my home! Thank u Jose!
I had the pleasure of hiring Andrew Grunwald to do my home appraisal. He was very professional, quick and his prices was very reasonable. He answered all my questions and was available even after business hours. For any future business I may need I will be hiring Andrew again.
After trying to get quotes Robert Lindstrom Nationwide Secure Inc. was the only company to contact me back promptly (I contacted 3 other construction companies none of which called back!) He was very patient with us as our schedules constantly change. Provided excellent expertise on what needed to be fixed. Even waited for a while before was let onto the property. Have not yet booked anything to be repaired but good business begins with excellent "customer service." Because of that will definitely consider for other work we need to get done for commercial office and home repairs.
We hired Jaime to demo our backyard which had a concrete patio and pavers, remove a tree, and install stamped concrete. He did an excellent job! We are very satisfied with his work; it turned out much better than we could have ever imagined! Jaime worked hard and his price was very reasonable. We will definitely consider using him again in the future for our home projects. Thanks again, Jaime!!!
We appreciated Todd and his expertise in our home. He did a very thorough job and cleaned up after himself. We would hire him again if needed. Thanks Todd - it was a pleasure meeting you.
After stripping off plaster and lath from my hallway for a remodel, my electrian noticed a broken roof beam in the attic crawl space with a "makeshift" brace complete with a tire jack for support holding up the beam. My house was built in 1926. I also noticed a bit of bowing in another beam that needed some bracing. I knew the broken beam needed to be replaced and the bowing needed some bracing. I had 4 contractors come in to check it out and none of them seemed too enthused to tackle the job, nor did they even seem to know how to go about it without extensive damage to the outside structure except for Solomon Ka'ne of SK Fine Homes and Construction whom I found on Thumbtack. The contractors wanted to either go thourgh the roof or break open the upper wall. They were wishy washy in their approach while scratching their brow for solutions. Solomon said he could do the job by working through the existing opening in the hallway and could complete the job through the crawl space. By doing the job this way, his bid was less than half of the others. I liked his enthusiasm and positive approach to the issue so I hired him. His professionalism and end product was every bit worth the price I paid him. He was on time with his assistant Joe, had all of the materials he needed and did the job in 5 1/2 hours. I highly recommend Solomon Ka'ne and will certainly give him future referrals. Thanks Solomon for a job well done.
This is my strong recommendation for Coggins Construction. Patrick of Coggins Construction is a local licensed contractor professional with over four decades of experience under his belt. We spent a lot of time talking with him discussing options and both he and his wife visited our home on the weekend. We hired Patrick to demo the front living room, demo the entryway, remove skylights, and reframe everything the original as built state. Patrick and his team have a passion for construction and it shows on the job. We had a strict timeline to meet. They showed up on time, worked hard, and cleaned up well after each day. Also they were very kind to my family, even my hyper Chihuahua! I had a few scope changes throughout and Patrick was able to accommodate my requests with great price and no impact to schedule. Thank you Coggins Construction for transforming our house into a home!
I am a recent homeowner in Escondido, Ca and I looked on thumbtack for a contractor and that's when I first found Luke Carr Construction which was an excellent choice. My old house built in the 1920s needed to be completely remodelled, there were holes and cracks in the lath and plaster which other constractors were leary of working with lath and plaster. Luke fixed all the walls, rewired all the electrical in my house, including new ceiling fans and can lights as well as new deco switches and outlets throughout that I purchased from Home Depot. He also painted the entire 4 bedroom house each room with a different colour I selected. He refinished the original hardwood floor in the house as well as the old chipped and base floor moulding, which came out superb! He opened walls and doorways to expose more of the kitchen and bedrooms, he created matching arch ways to match the ceiling. At first I was nervous because I've never done this before but in the end it looked even better than I could visualize and it created a more open atmosphere, I've received lots of compliments from family and friends about the unique arch ways. He also gave me advice on landscaping and didn't charge me to replant some of my trees that were put in too deep (took two hours), and gave me advice on the exterior which is the next phase of my home. He is an excellent painter, clean and neat, matches existing texture perfectly the other contractor said he would try but couldn't guantee it would match. He also did additional electrical work in the bathroom and advised me to add extra outlets in the living room that I didn't think I needed but really have helped me bring the house up to code. Overall Luke is a trustworthy guy and is very respectful of my choices, he gets the work done, he doesn't have a lot of the modern technology like 3D imaging and I don't believe he has a website but his dedication and old school ways worked beautifully for me and my job. He prides himself on his family life, I met his grandchildren on two different occasions and they were sweet. I'm looking forward to having him back for Phase 2! I've recommend him to two of my friends, one of which used him and she was very satisfied. Patricia
Robert quoted a bathroom remodel for our Chromatic Coffee Cafe on Thumbtack and then came by to give as a more accurate quote. We were on a tight budget and he was willing to work withing that framework. He encountered dry rot, our sink drain was almost completely clogged, and we couldn´t find the faucet we had bought for the job. He hit all these snags, went back to Home Depot, stayed until 4am to finish the job. We only have one bathroom and we wanted it to reopen as soon as possible. Professional, positive, diligent, and well priced. We will be using them again!!!
Jorge did an amazing job replacing our wood fence. The job was completed in one day. He told me what materials he was going to use, ahead of time, and was able to comply with my specific requests!
Gordon replaced our roof, installed sky lights, he replaced a section of our interior woodbeam ceiling and perfectly matched the stain and the biggest project - our kitchen. Gordon charges a fair price, is on time and does not leave a mess. I will not hesitate to call Gordon for my next home improvement project!
It's been an absolute pleasure to have Kory work on several projects in my home. He's got solid design/architecture credentials from the prestigious Rhode Island School of Design, and so he's got a great vision for projects, large and small. Very talented on the build/construction side of things, too, so a nice balance. Upbeat, friendly, fair and stands by his work.
Charles and his crew did an awesome job on my kitchen. The knowledge and experience shows. Their attention to detail and quality of work is well above others who have worked on my home. I'm working with Charles now to remodel my master bathroom. I would recommend CBCS for any project you may have
Rudy does great work. If you want it done right call rudys home improvements
Sergio Flores was fantastic. He came to give me an estimate the same day I called. His bid was very fair and he started the repair to my bamboo flooring the very next day. His crew worked into the night to finish the job in one day. I also asked him to bid on my fence repair and the exterior painting on my home. He is working on my fence today. I like that he bids the labor and material separately. He is easy to communicate with (I don't speak Spanish). I would definitely use him for all of my future projects. I have already referred him to my neighbor for her fence repair. When you find a contractor that can handle various projects, is prompt and honest, I hold on to them. I am willing to share him once he finishes my projects. Mary Malone 760-450-6215
I was glad they were willing to take on two small projects and completed them beautifully.
Remcon remodeled 2 bathrooms in our home and Ronen was great to work with. We remodeled the 1st bathroom in Jan 2015 and it looked great. A few different companies provided quotes but Remcon's price was right in the middle and their outline of the project matched what we were looking for. Our family and friends really liked the change and we told them all about Remcon and how easy it was to work with them. They were flexible with our schedule and had great communication through calls, emails, and text. After about 6 months of using the 1st bathroom and it remaining in great condition, we called Remcon back to remodel our 2nd bathroom, which also turned out great. We really liked working with this company and we'll keep them in mind for future projects.
My husband and I recently purchased a three bedroom home in a great neighborhood, but it needed some small renovations done to create a fourth bedroom for our newborn. I contacted eleven (yes, eleven) different architects on Yelp. Only four actually responded to my messages, and most said they would either charge just to come out to Santee to simply look at our home ($150-$200 for their time alone), or they were booked out months in advance, or they didn't service the East County (I'm guessing these guys prefer more upscale jobs in Del Mar and Coronado). A few provided ballpark quotes but they clearly didn’t want our business. Our dilemma was that we couldn't move into this house we had already closed on until the renovations were done, so we needed someone ASAP to create a design for our project so we could THEN get a permit for the work so we could THEN have the work done by a contractor. Since Yelp failed me, I submitted the form to find an architect on Thumbtack, and Ken from One World Architecture called me immediately. It was a Saturday morning, no less, and Ken was incredibly warm, understanding, and made our small project out in the boonies of Santee sound like a priority. He came out right away, took his time understanding exactly what we wanted done, and got to work quickly to create a design that we loved. Ken even connected us with a local contractor, who primarily works on referrals, since we had no idea where to start (incidentally, this contractor has been just as amazing as Ken and also very easy to work with). Throughout the process, Ken and his team were transparent, kept in constant communication with us and the contractor, and even dealt with a horrendous permit process with the city on our behalf. As a bonus, One World Architecture’s charges for their services were far below the other architects that had provided ball-park quotes. We are so grateful for Ken and his team. Our home is nearly finished and it looks phenomenal: the addition looks original to the home. Although this whole renovation process was a lot more complicated than we anticipated – nothing like HGTV makes it seem – we are so thankful for Ken and team at One World Architecture and would recommend them in a heartbeat to anyone considering a renovation.
I needed a drawing of an existing deck to submit to the building department the next day. I sent Lisa the drawings and specs for the deck on Monday late afternoon. She sent me her completed drawings at 8 am on Tuesday! Less than 24 hour turn around. The drawings are complete with no mistakes. She is an absolute angel. Didn't even charge me a rush fee. Thank you Lisa!
Amazing experience from start to finish. Gerald offered suggestions and design options that we wouldn't have thought of on our own, and our kitchen looks super high end now, without blowing our budget. We are already thinking about the projects we want to do next with him.
