Matthew is an excellent communicator. He really wants to make sure the client is heard. He was very clear about what was within the scope of his expertise and when to rely on other specialists. I needed a very important retaining wall to be built away from the house to deal with a dry rot problem. Matthew was able to guide the scope of the work so that it did not become too big of a project. Matthew actually invited my input and ideas. Even though he is in high demand and quite busy, he always make sure that our discussion sessions were clear and had enough time to address the details. Great work!
I hired Jasper from My Apartment Is Better Than Yours. I think they did a terrific job at a very reasonable price. I'm really pleased that I decided to go with them. I had a number of unusual carpentry tasks to complete when I moved to my new place. The windows were old and the wood was irregular and moldy, so the wood around the antique glass panels needed to be replaced. I was told those windows hadn't been opened in 40 years, but now they work perfectly and you'd never know the wood wasn't original. Also, several doorways lacked doors when I moved in, and were unusual rounded shapes cut into the stucco without doorframes. Jasper was able to make me custom doors with antique iron-wrought handles, and they look awesome. I also needed threshholds worked on, cabinets put up, new benches made for my roof deck, a custom projector and screen put in, antique chandeliers installed, a lock repaired... and I'm probably forgetting one or two things. They are in the process of putting the finishing touches on my humidor (they had to build me custom legs for it), and it's going to look spectacular. Anyway, they knocked it all out of the park. They were prompt and clean and didn't cause much of a disturbance despite all the work they were doing. They'll be my go-to for anything I need done in the future. I definitely recommend them.
Rick was our general contractor for our project that included fixing up/modernizing the exterior front of our house. He has an excellent working knowledge of all the trades required to complete this work. We received multiple bids and his price is very reasonable/competitive for the scope of work we had completed. Rick stripped our house of its old wood siding, porch tiles and old existing structures. He then replaced it with stucco, beautiful stonework siding, new porch stone and fresh paint. He also put in a new driveway and walkways for us. The house has a whole new look, and we couldn't be happier. Rick has excellent connections to many subcontractors in the area. They all did wonderful work, were very professional, friendly and polite and efficient. Rick's connections to these subs was invaluable for us, as there is no way I could have found them all on my own. Rick treated our project as if it were his own house. As little things came up during the project, he was able to fix or amend them as needed. He was also very available by phone. He answered just about every time I called, and if he didn't he returned my call right away. I never had to wait to get in contact with Rick. Rick also gave very good honest opinions about our project when I asked. One example is when I chose some very expensive porch stone that didn't look right with the rest of our materials. Rick not only expressed his concern with this, but showed up with about ten more stone choices so that I could pick out a better one, which I did. The porch now looks wonderful, and the stone that we like much better than the original choice was less expensive! I think you will be very happy with your home improvement project if you hire Rick as your contractor no matter how big or small your project is. Rick will be happy to do it!
We had Ryan over yesterday to repair 3 interior doors in a very old and actually historic San Franciscan Victorian house. In addition to the three interior doors, Ryan painted the front door which had also just been replaced. His attention to detail was great, there were constant adjustments to make sure everything fit, latched, matched, didn't drag, looked great, etc. His response was prompt, he replied almost immediately and was available to start the very next day. He came prepared for the job, from start to finish. Ryan is very up front and fair in terms of compensation. You will have zero issue with the transparency and fairness of his bids. It should also be noted that this is a very old building. The areas where the door hinges connected to the wall/door frame were extremely dilapidated, the wood was old and and over drilled. It was like putty. But Ryan rocked it. Not only did Ryan pay close attention to the style of the Victorian building and matched the details perfectly, his finished product was seamless. You can't even tell that work had been done. There wasn't even dust on the floor. It was legit, honest good work. 100% recommend.
We hired Lifetime Remodeling in the summer of 2017 to do a first floor addition to our home in Millbrae. The project involved adding 400 square feet to our house, which included expanding the living room and adding a new bedroom and a new bathroom. It was wonderful working with Sam and his team at every step of the way. Their bid was very competitive compared to the many others I got, and the estimated time for completion (about four months) was much shorter than most of the other quotes. Lifetime's responsive customer service and attention to detail made our lives so much easier. Here are just a few examples of things they did to minimize our stress. When strong winds blew the construction fence over during off hours, they came out here quickly to get it back up and weigh it down with sandbags. When it came time to block off the parts of the house being demolished, they helped us move furniture and cover it carefully so that it would not get damaged or dirty during construction. When they needed to move the wiring for our internet access, they made sure to reconnect it promptly. The temporary wall they built was very sturdy and effective at blocking out dust, so we had no problem continuing to live in the house throughout the construction. Sam also closely inspected all the work and often caught adjustments to be made that I did not notice. For example, even though the interior painting looked fine to me, Sam decided that he wanted another coat. When we did point out other things that needed adjusting, such as leveling out certain fixtures, the team promptly fixed them. When I asked for a different design for our recessed lighting at the last minute, even after some of them had already been installed, Sam accommodated the request. Sam checked in with me often, so I always felt well informed about the next steps coming up and what I needed to plan for. This was awesome because I learned that it can be agonizing to pick out tiles, hardwood, hardware, etc. for a project like this, especially for someone like me doing it for the first time. It was also helpful to have Sam's recommendations for suppliers for the finishes and fixtures. We were really impressed that Lifetime finished the project pretty much right on schedule and with absolutely no cost overruns. To make this happen, most days, Lifetime had a team of two to four workers here by 8 a.m., and they worked steadily for the entire day. They also often worked on weekends. After Lifetime finished the addition to the house, we ended up also hiring them to do landscaping for our front yard and replacing our concrete driveway with paver stones. They also did a great job on this, and we are so happy with and amazed by how our house looks now. Remodeling inevitably involves many hard decisions and a lot of time, energy, and money invested by the homeowner! The last thing you need is a contractor who adds unnecessary stress, yet it seemed like everyone I talked to had horror stories about their contractors. We are so grateful that Sam and Lifetime made it a wonderful experience for us.
Eddie and his crew did a great job for us. He installed the new siding on our refurbished garage. They did a great job with a lot of attention to detail. More importantly, Eddie is a union trained carpenter with a great work ethic. He was there on time and finished the job at the agreed price in less time than he thought it would take. We will definitely be looking to hire him again for some other work.
Michael did a great job on a full remodel of my home, including all bathrooms, kitchen, roof, floors, doors and windows, siding, etc. He is great to work with. Very thorough and good at getting best price and work out of subs. Very knowledgeable.
We were lucky enough to find and hire Michael McGuire as our general contractor. The scope of our job was quite large, as it was a complete home remodel. Our remodel included a new addition, new kitchen, new bathrooms with a complete new interior and exterior design plan with modern upgrades to each space. Michael worked with our architect to design a new home that fit both our design aesthetic and our budget. Michael not only assisted in the design process but carried out every vision perfectly. His communication with us throughout the entire process was excellent. As plans changed and unexpected issues arose (which was to be expected), Michael always had options lined up that were not only satisfactory but timely. We get compliments regularly by people walking by our home. We couldn't be happier with all his interior finish work as well. He is not only an excellent general contractor but a true craftsman.
We worked with Kevin on remodeling our bathroom, and Kevin was very easy to work with. The good: He took care of all the organization and always let us know what we need to do next. There was always something being done and we always saw the movement, the workers showed up when announced and we could tell they knew what they were doing. What could have been even better: Some of the work took longer than estimated (due to our apartment being in an old building and walls and floor not being leveled), and we could tell that this tired out the team, leading to a few smaller mistakes that could have been avoided. Overall we are very happy with the result though!
Shubin building came to my rescue at the last minute and I cannot Thank them enough! The first thing is the work got done exactly as they said it would. The craftsmanship on the gates they put in for me are perfect. Everything is so level/straight that it makes me smile every time I look at the gates. I really don't think we find that quality of work these days. I have 2 big dogs and they worked with me on that. The advice I got with what type of wood/polls and style was right on for my house. I did not have my husband home at the time to help me with the decisions I needed to make and Leo was great at understanding and guiding me in the right direction without breaking the bank. I would hire Shubin again and would be more than happy to recommend them to anyone.
I had my home in Dallas remodeled and also I had my home in San Angelo remodeled. Honest and great to work with. Highly recommend Howard Patterson (Patco Construction).
Stuart has done various repairs for us including replacing structural supports for a large, old, brick chimney. He also completely re-wired our electrical system, a major upgrade and challenging because our home is old and unusual. I have also observed first hand work he has done on a friend's house, many improvements such as a trellis over a carport. He is competent and skillful. He is creative and finds aesthetically pleasing solutions to problems. He is definitely someone I would hire again and would welcome doing business with. Highly recommended.
Fantastic customer service! Highly recommended. Igor oversaw work done to our deck to create a new sunroom. He goes out of his way to get the job done the way the customer wants it.
Kieran has worked on anything and everything in my home. But, most recently, he repaired a door that wouldn't close and lock due to recent rain. He's fast, friendly and really honest. I'd feel comfortable having him do work in my house without me being home. Kieran is easy to communicate with and always on time to get the job done. I'll continue to hire Kieran to help out with jobs. But, I'll also continue to strongly recommend him to friends and colleagues.
We called Mark to look at some driveway work - removing old steps and adding new ones in a different location and paving over the old area as well as helping the steep incline an easier transition. He was very responsive and sensitive to what we were looking for and our schedule. We had to pause the project for almost a year due to some city issues but he was patient and ready move as soon as we got the go ahead from the city. I highly recommend his work and he has a lot of contacts for various needs.
Custom furniture. Great construction and an eye for design.
Mike is a fantastic contractor. He is responsive, reliable, honest trustworthy and the list goes on... His work is exceptional. Mike has a keen eye for detail and design which helped me greatly in my decision process. The first home project Mike did for us was back in 2014. From that point on - he continues to be my go-to contractor. I highly recommend Argon Construction!
I recently had the privilege of having Phillip Price Construction do a major remodel on my home. The experience I had was beyond fantastic from start to finish. Not only is the quality of their work outstanding, I was treated with respect and kindness throughout the process. The constant communication and updates were reassuring and felt secure with their crews in my home whether I was there or away. I appreciated the whole process and am so amazed by how my home turned out! Thank you so much Phillip Price Construction!
Yesterday Jalandhar and his team finished the new 2nd floor addition on my single family home in Burlingame before the guys started there was only an old attic , they completely removed the entire roof , built new walls and a new roof to create a 2nd floor, they then proceeded with a bathroom, 2 bedrooms and 2 walk in closets. Me and my wife are very happy and satisfied with the outcome of the project, from the hardwood flooring and custom builtins to the tiling and painting the expertise that was shown was much appreciated.
Excellent design/build shop. They are very good at what they do. You will pay for it, but you also get what you pay for with home remodels.
I price my work fair, i do high quality of work,
