I worked with a handful of contractors but Mike and his team are definitely top in class. Very professional, punctual and always on top of it. I will use them on all my future remodels and I definitely recommend them!Feb 10, 2019Verified
Mike & his crews are very kind, clean & professional and they care about what matters. I’ve had contractors in the past that didn’t listen or care about what I wanted as an end result- All Universal Construction covers every detail even things I didn’t consider and follows them through the written contract. Nobel concept!Aug 13, 2019
I needed to find a contractor to install a structural beam in my attic so I could remove a wall. Mike came out promptly and gave us their plan for the project, an estimate, and put us on the schedule. I liked the fact they presented me with a contract; this installed confidence that I had hired a professional firm. The city office wanted a "wet stamp" for my engineer's design and AUU took care of it on their own. Jesus and his team did a great job installing the beam with no delays. Whenever I had questions, I felt I could call Mike and he would return my calls within 30 minutes. Afterwards, they cleaned inside our house and garage better than any contractor I've hired before (thank you!). Finally, I enjoyed working with Mike, Beau, Jesus, Brian, Elijah, etc... on a personal level. Super friendly team. Highly recommended!May 6, 2019
We had a leak in our upstairs bathroom that went down to the main level so we needed a bathroom remodel and new drywall and texture in our dinning room. They tile work was great and everything looked good when they had finished. In addition, they were very accommodating with providing all the information we needed to send to the insurance company in order to get the work covered. I do wish there was better communication on when people were coming and going for the day.Jan 16, 2018

During our meeting we go over all workscopes, contractual agreements, timeline and answer all questions our clients may have. All Universal usually secures a down payment ranging from 30 to 50 percent depending on the size of the project. After this is all settled we start the project per start date agreement. Some projects can start within a week others take 1 or more months depending on city requirements for permit processes.
