We had a major kitchen remodeling and Jose was great with organizing all the required tools, time, subcontractors and his positive and helpful attitude. We're very happy with the work and our new kitchen and happy to have Jose as our new friend.
My ceiling fan was installed quickly and he even vacuumed when he was done. I am very happy with the results.
John was a real treat to work with. He came in under budget on a very unique job (free-standing octagonal deck with stainless-steel railing lines). He was efficient with his time and left the area spotless. We greatly endorse John!!
Awesome job by Travis and Derrick. They not only removed the popcorn on our ridiculously high ceilings but also painted them with great quality. I like that he gave me options since I was trying to save as much money as possible. He was very honest with me throughout the whole process and I appreciated that. I would hire them again.
We randomly (and luckily) met Stan through Thumbtack. He helped correct a progressively leaning garage that had been worrying us for 6 years. Two other contractors had given us the impression that the problem was too expensive to correct (perhaps too cost prohibitive due to the work they envisioned necessary) or generally too daunting a job to be interested in. It was the last stab at either fixing or tearing the structure down. Stan brought a level of professionalism that was refreshing. His project proposal and execution of work demonstrated that he clearly knew his stuff about framing and construction. Since we were not sure of the future of the structure (since we might remodel further) he also helped us keep within our budget for the scope of this project. We were provided with a description of the work to be carried out and accurate cost estimates. Stan also secured the fence after straightening the lean (there was a gap left where the garage was previously leaning); in the end we also had him frame in a small window into the structure. He worked independently and very efficiently to get the job done. We would not hesitate to recommend him or consider him for other projects.
I hired Cheryl through Thumbtack in Feb 2015 to fully renovate a 1700sqft home in what we thought would be a quick two months. First and foremost, she's a fantastic designer - she understands color, is particular about details, and can visualize what a space should feel like. Different times of the day, different seasons of the year ... she thought through it all and got the right combination of lighting, windows, and heating/cooling to get it right. In ADDITION to that designer's touch, Cheryl is a tiger of a General Contractor. I really can't overstate how much energy and passion she put into the project getting bids from subcontractors, managing and directing her own crew, and fighting to keep everything on schedule. I felt entirely comfortable letting her pick fixtures and finishes, which lessened the load on my shoulders. And, from an owner's perspective, the way she documented every dollar spent and provided reports and accounting was beyond anything I've seen anyone else do. It's amazing. In the end, the project did NOT go as expected. After opening walls, we discovered extensive termite damage (which meant some new exterior walls), antiquated electrical, and sub-standard plumbing work. Most other contractors would have walked off the job or taken advantage of the situation. Most other contractors would have taken an additional four months to finish. Cheryl didn't - she poured her whole self into the challenge and worked tirelessly to get the project done. The end product is fabulous and it took only one month longer than originally anticipated. Perhaps most importantly, Cheryl's integrity, "whatever it takes" attitude, and her extremely high Say/Do ratio is a testament to her character. She's the type of person I like to work with, and I'd be delighted to share any details of my experience with anyone who's considering her services.
After a horrible experience with a previous contractor, finding Bryan and Safeguard Construction felt like a godsend. I needed my bathroom partially remodeled with a new tub, shower fixtures, wall tiles and floor tiles. They did a fantastic job, were very professional, on time, and also cleaned up at the end of each day. I highly recommend Safeguard Construction. I will be using them for my next major project!
We hired your company to construct an addition on our home, as well as reconfigure interior walls to create a 10 x 10 home office (which included redirecting a skylight and re-doing plumbing on our washer and dryer). We had a separate architect draw up the plans and get the permits. You were responsible for our entire building project, including all of the finishing's (cabinets, hardwood flooring, lighting, outside tiles, etc.). The project lasted 4 months. We were very pleased with the process and results, and are happy to recommend you as a contractor. 1. Responsive & Responsible - Joe was easy to work with - he responded to phone calls in a timely manner and worked to keep the client happy. Our on-site project manager was punctual and always there and the crew was courteous and conscientious. 2. Respectful - The team was respectful of the fact that we still had to live in the house while they were working. They kept the site clean and organized, and did whatever they could to minimize disruption to the rest of the house. 3. High quality workmanship - The work done by you, as well as your subcontractors, was of the highest quality and we are very satisfied. 4. On Budget - The project stayed reasonably on budget and we were adequately notified of any increases to the original bid. There was a slight delay in timeline due to a longer than expected lead time on the windows, but for the most part, the project was completed on time. 5. Stand by their work - 2 months after the project was completed, we discovered with the first rains that we had a leak in the roof (which may have been due to a poor roof design by the architect). You were quick to respond and happily fixed the problem by refinishing the roof. The quality and results of your workmanship have completely met our expectations. We would highly recommend you as a contractor.
We are return customers of Angela's. She has now updated 6 rooms in our home and we couldn't be happier. The most recent project was was to help us update flooring in our living room, a downstairs bedroom, and our stairs. We are super pleased with the flooring choices she made; they are high quality products, and her flooring contractors did better work than any previous installation we had ever commissioned. Her carpet installer did such a better job installing carpet on our stairs, that they now have an upscale look we didn't know was possible because he took the time to do a proper job carpeting around the bullnose edge of each stair instead of using the easier waterfall install over the stairs. The new laminate flooring and carpet coordinate very well with the rooms. We all love the new carpet on the stairs. Another phase of the recent job was to coordinate removal of old wallpaper from three rooms: our master bath, a downstairs bath, and our master bedroom, then choose new paint colors and help with space design and design in general with these rooms. The master bath and bedroom hadn't been updated since the early 1990's so they really needed help. Everything turned out great. The master bathroom needed so much help and her choices were so great that it isn't even like walking into the same room now. The master bedroom has been totally transformed for the better as well. Both rooms are inviting now and her work has helped increase the value of our home at a great value for our money. If you are looking for an interior designer, we highly recommend Angela for her ease to work with, her ability to listen to your needs, her consideration of budget (you won't find a designer who will bring you better value and style for your money), her practicality, her ability to work fast to complete a project (she wouldn't dream of having you waiting six months for expensive custom items to arrive), and her great contractors who do some of the best work we have seen for carpentry, flooring, wall finishing, wall paper removal, and painting, and who are all very reasonably priced, professional and extra helpful on the job. Her painting contractor stepped up and did extra work to complete our master bathroom and bedroom very quickly, and charged very reasonably for this extra work. Don't hesitate to hire her. You will be happy you did. If you are like us, we are not very good at interior design, she will not only do a better job but probably do it for less money than you could coordinate yourself.
Ivan has always been available for our construction projects as well as home repairs. His prices are reasonable and his subcontractors he uses have done a great job. I would recommend him for anyone looking for a honest and reliable contractor.
Over the past few years we have used Rocky on various home and rental renovations. He is always very thorough and honest in providing cost-effective recommendations. His workmanship is of very high quality and he is very professional in his dealings with owners and tenants.
