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.
Excellent handyperson! Also smart and humorous.
Contemporary Design Builders did home remodeling for me a year ago. It was a 15-year old house and the space was not so well designed. I bought it for flipping. The remodeling crew in Contemporary Design Builders removed the walls and created more space in the living room. Then they installed a new kitchen, the new wooden floor, and repainted the wall. It was a huge amount of work. Luckily the project manager made sure everything was under control and I didn't get unexpected trouble. I sold the house with a higher price than the amount I paid and the remodeling fees. I really wanna thank Contemporary Design Builders for helping me remodel the house. I made the right choice.
To Whom it May Concern, We are very pleased to provide this strong letter of recommendation for Matthew Hess of American Custom Builders. We used Matthew's services for two projects at our daughter's 1950's-era, ~900 sq ft house in San Diego, CA. We interviewed a half-dozen highly-rated contractors, but selected Matthew based on his outstanding references, strong knowledge of home-building, and lowest overall price. The first project involved removing a major structural wall, removing a closet, and expanding the kitchen. The remodel turned out great and was completed on-time and within budget. Because of the success of the first project, we turned to Matthew again when we decided to add a ~480 sq ft master bedroom/bathroom addition plus a roof deck to our daughter's house. Matthew worked with us and our architect to ensure the plans were well thought-out and structurally sound. Once the plans were completed, he helped us obtain the necessary permits from the city (not an easy task!). The El Nino rains delayed the start of our project, but Matthew was flexible with the start-date and ready with his crew once the rains subsided. Throughout the project, Matthew was closely involved in all the details and even performed some of the hands-on work himself. As might be expected in an older home, we ran into some challenges (e.g., replacing all the water lines in the house), but Matthew came-up with creative solutions and did the extra work at his cost. For several extra items, he did not even charge us at all! Our daughter is delighted with the remodel and room addition and we are extremely happy with the end-results (including quality, cost, and timeframe). Overall, we had an excellent experience working with Matthew. He is diligent, hard-working, conscientious, honest, and delivers on his promises. We would certainly use him again for any future projects and highly recommend him to others. Sincerely, Paul and Kathy Strandburg
We had Coggins Construction install crown molding in our home. Patrick was very professional throughout the entire process and satisfactorily completed the project under the initial price quote, which was already extemely reasonable. He actually listened to what we wanted and was respectful of our house-things that previous contractors neglected. We would recommend Patrick's services to anyone.
My house was updated and remodeled by APCO. I have worked with a number of contractors. APCO is very different. APCO has Laura and Alan who are very talented designers. Their design ideas turned my house into a showcase - something I could not have imaged on my own. They were honest and dedicated to pleasing me. I highly recommend APCO.
B. King is currently our favorite person. We hired him initially because our home renovation contractor had done some damage to our house. Rather than fix it, the contractor told us to hire someone else to fix it. Not knowing what else to do, we set out to do as he advised, which led us to B.King. B.King came over, took one look at the site and pointed out all the things our contractor had done that the Contractors State Licensing Board would view as violations. He instructed us to take pictures, file a complaint right away, and contact a lawyer--all of which we did that night. Suddenly, our renovation contractor was singing a different tune. He volunteered to fix everything and even paid B.King to repair some of the items he'd pointed out. B.King ended up saving us thousands of dollars in legal fees and empowered us with the knowledge we needed to get our renovation contractor to perform as contracted. B. King also completed the work the next day, had competitive pricing, and was a dream to work with.
So Luke is really amazing. His 1 noticeable flaw may be that he's too humble. He's professional, attentive, thorough, clean, quick, polite, encouraging, creative, gets the job done quickly and right the first time... like you'd believe someone who owns a business would conduct their business. He's also strong: he carried my oven down to my garage before I knew it was happening: my neighbor told me "Wow." (that's how fast he works!) He's intelligent and funny without being so chatty you wonder when he's going to get to work since you're paying him hourly... he's worth every dollar and more, truly even more: by hiring Luke Carr YOU can help improve this world of ours. How? Because Luke doesn't just help homeowners, he's helping others on a much broader scope! Call him for whatever you need. He can do anything from floors to ceilings and when you talk to him, ask him about Africa. There is more I'd like to do here in my home. I know when it's time to call a professional I'll be calling on Luke Carr. He's That Good. Outstanding is an understatement.
I am the Art Director involved with the opening of the Detox Lounge in downtown San Diego. I worked with Cheryl on the interior design features. Her design aesthetic is first-rate and her knowledge of how to bring different materials together for an extraordinary end product is superb. Not only does she have superior design skills, but the construction knowledge to assure that beautiful remodels and buildouts can practically be brought to fruition within budget. She's a designer with a contractor's license and I've seen her work with tradesmen and crews onsite... she's definitely THE LEADER making sure the job is getting done correctly because she knows how it should be done!
Doug is an outstanding resource in my business. I can always count on him to take care of my clients' repair issues - whether it's as simple as installing smoke detectors to drywall repair and paint work and other household "fix-it" items. He is impeccable with his word, reliable, and extremely reasonable with his pricing. Most importantly my clients like and trust him - which is extremely important to my business and reputation as well. I highly recommend Doug and will continue to call on him for my personal projects as well as for my clients' needs!!
Nationwide Secure did the tile flooring and sink installation for my bathroom. By far, they have been the most responsive and professional company out of all contractors I have hired. From time of thumbtack post to job completion was one week, and throughout, Nationwide Secure was straightforward and an overall pleasure to work with. I could not be happier with my finished bathroom. My initial bathroom setup was a bit awkward, but Robert did some creative work with the tiles to make the finished product look good. During the work, there was also some dry rot on the walls that he removed free of charge, just to do a thorough and complete job. The end product was stunning. Thanks Robert!
From beginning to end, J&M was consistent with their level of quality workmanship. Always timely, J&M clearly communicated progress and suggestions. Always striving for customer satisfaction, I am coming away from our project happy and very satisfied with the end result! great job!
One day we wandered into Morena and found ourselves talking with Kate about remodeling our bathrooms and possibly our kitchen. She suggested sending John out to appraise the labor cost. Soon we had John, Sami and Mike in our home and a discussion started about all the things we would like and to our amazement we were assured that they could do it all. We were pleased that we could have all the work done without having to shop for additional contractors. We agreed to refinish the kitchen cabinets, replace the kitchen island counter, install a new hood over the cooktop, reface a fireplace, extensive remodel and update of two bathrooms, repaint most of the interior of the house and re-polish all the travertine flooring. Immediately we had a bevy of workmen starting cabinet refinishing, wall and ceiling painting. Work was continuous to completion. Sami was very helpful by suggesting and selecting materials that resulted in a pleasant decor. All problems, which were minor, were corrected in a timely fashion. We were very pleased with the work that Morena Home Design did for us.
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.
The delta team came as promised to change our house water heater. They were courteous, fair, competent, and honest. We are very happy with their job and will hire them again for any plumbing needs.
We recently had our Bathroom remodeled by Tabarez Construction Inc. they promised our bathroom would be completed before The holidays and they kept that promise with time to spare! Amazed by the Quality of the work!
Amazing results. As with all construction there is always something that comes up. Because our home is old and the previous owners did a lot of DIY projects we expected more than one hiccup. We were informed every step of the way of all items and schedule. We rarely had questions and when we dos they were always answers within a couple of hours. Lia and Ronan are both amazing and I can't wait till we work with them again in our next project.
Zak from Zapara and Sons is fantastic from start to finish! I was very hesitant to allow a new contractor into my PB home in order to remodel our kitchen. My wife had been on me for some time trying to make some changes to our cabinets, and also building a new island for guests. Zak was fantastic right from the beginning. He quickly put my mind at ease with his caring questions and detailed explanation of what needed to be done, materials needed etc.... I could not have had a better experience! It's truly something to find a craftsman who will treat your home like theirs as they do their work. I'm so thankful to Zapara and Sons and will 100% be using them for all our future home remodel and renovation needs!
Noha is relentless in her pursuit of a great finished product at an incredible price. She will shop tirelessly for the best possible labor rate and/or discounts on materials. I trust her implicitly with my renovation budget and scheduling!
John and his team did an amazing job with my home. Everything he promised was delivered and the team he works with couldn't have been more professional and polite. I would recommend House to Home on any renovation project.
