About this pro
Chester was more than just professional, he's a true craftsman who is committed and knowledgable about a range of projects. I always thought of a fences as just a necessity in the yard, but he built one that actually improves the space with its design and functionality. Guests regularly comment about the beauty and craftsmanship that's apparent in all his work. He addresses challenges and special considerations thoughtfully and does what it takes to finishes on time. We are thrilled with the fence he built and would hire him again in a second.Aug 28, 2017
I found KJC Construction via Craigslist. That’s not usually a good way to find the best worker, but I got lucky when Chester Chang responded. I knew I'd found a good man when he was in absolutely no rush to enthusiastically go over all the details and to offer valuable advice.____ KJC is usually a one-man show, though he does have helpers when necessary. But one man was all I needed for my kitchen makeover - Chester. The quality of his work and his attention to detail are top notch! It's obvious that he truly enjoys his profession.____ Chester resurfaced my 31 year old laminate counters, which were still very solid, with all-new Formica and new bullnose edges (see photos). A few others who responded to my ad were obviously nervous to attempt that, but Chester was very confident and anxious to tackle it. He did an excellent job! That saved me a fortune compared with removing and replacing them with all new counter tops, which other respondents had tried hard to sell me.____ He also installed vinyl plank flooring over the old tile floor, installed all new baseboards and new ceramic counter backsplashes. In every case his past experience and attention to detail resulted in a beautiful job.____ Chester made good use of plastic sheeting to protect the cabinets and seal the doorways. Virtually no dust made it out of the kitchen! He graciously helped me to remove the stove and frig. from the room, and to later move them back in place.____ I really can't say enough good things about KJC Construction, because KJC is Chester. His work ethic, his pricing, his attitude and his wealth of experience all came together to make our 31 year old kitchen look virtually brand-new again!____ You'll see in my photos that I still have to finish painting the walls, which I chose to do myself. I do enjoy painting. But Chester is more than qualified to do that and much more, such as construction, roofing, plumbing, doors, windows, etc. I have already promised him that he will be my go-to guy for our upcoming bathroom makeover. I have no need or desire to get competing quotes, and that’s a great feeling!____ I highly recommend KJC if you want a real pro who really cares. Check out my before and after photos!Aug 11, 2017
