Bathroom Remodel

VL builders did a full kitchen renovation for us. The final product was beautiful and turned out exactly how we envisioned it. (McKenzie did a great job with the design). There were a quite a few avoidable hiccups throughout the process but I am confident the team will take our feedback and make sure it doesn’t happen to future customers. Victor is knowledgeable, cares about the quality of his work, and has a very kind/hard-working team.

We had an active leak in our home and were unsure of where it was coming from. VL Builders did a comprehensive inspection, came up with a plan of action and assisted us in finding supporting contractors for a deeper look at the masonry of our chimney. They did work on our roof around the chimney to stop the leak and went above and beyond in every step! I was consistently impressed with the proactive communication and planning by Ken. The team that did the work were professional, friendly and did a superior job. VL Builders will be my fist call for all repairs and improvements we do to our home! Thank you!

Met with Ken from VL builders to look at roof for hail damage and get opinion on condition and lifespan of roof as well as suitability for solar panels. Timely, thorough, and very clear about options. I was impressed.

Victor came out to give us an estimate on a kitchen renovation. (We decided to hold off on the renovation due to some plumbing issues we need to resolve, but Victor was wonderful.)He was patient and knowledgeable, very aware of our budget limits, listened to and answered all of our questions, and then sent us 2 estimates at 2 different price points so we could have options.The estimates were the most detailed and thorough I have ever seen. He checked back with us about a week later by phone after we looked them over. VL delivered at every point.When we do go ahead with our renovation, we will certainly use VL Builders. Excellent local business!

We hired Victor to completely finish our basement (roughly 700 SF) which consisted of framing, insulation, new HVAC, electrical, plumbing, egress window, etc. - we gained an additional living room, full bathroom, and bedroom. Overall we were very happy with our experience, even though we didnt always make things easy for him! Victor is one of the hardest working people weve ever met. Fair, honest, trustworthy (which is hard to find in a contractor), and very knowledgable. Not only did we enjoy working with Victor, but the finished product far exceeded our expectations. Well definitely use Victor again in the future and recommend that our family/friends use VL Builders as well!
VL Builders's reply
Karley and Joe, Thank you for the fantastic review. You both were great clients to work for and all of us here at VL Builders are very happy that we were able to build you an awesome livable basement. I personally hope you get to enjoy the space for years to come!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    We work on fixed price contracts for almost all of our jobs we build. Repair work is typically done one a 4 hour minimum + an hourly rate after the 4 hour minimum. Our time and materials rate is $95.88 per hour for a one person crew or $187.97 for a two person crew.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    For exterior projects we will come out and put a quote together on the spot based on your selections for the project. You will receive information on the warranties, color options, and any special notes regarding your project upon the site visit. During this time, you may go through any questions you have and our representative will educate you on any details pertaining to your project. If you decide to accept the proposal and move forward, we will typically put you on the schedule 1-2 weeks from proposal acceptance. Most exterior projects take 1-5 days and we focus on all the details from start to clean up so you don't have to lift a finger. For interior projects we start with a phone call to qualify our customers and make sure we're a good match for what you're looking for. After that we will set up a free consultation appointment to go over the project and put together a budget based on our discussion. If you decide to move forward, we will enter into a professional service agreement or design contract to put plans, specifications, and materials selections together. Clients may come into our showroom to select anything for their project from flooring to exterior building materials or visit one of our many suppliers showrooms around the cities. Upon completion of the design agreement, we will put together a formal contract with pricing options for the project and an estimated project schedule.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    VL Builders trains all of its field employees on an ongoing basis. We consistently work with manufacturer reps to ensure all installation standards are met or exceeded. We are lead safe certified, up to date on all of the industry training required for our licensing. In addition to that, we constantly explore better ways to do things, attend building science seminars, and visit our manufacturer's facilities to see how their products are designed and made to work together as a building assembly. All carpenters at VL Builders go through a 90 day on the job training to ensure they meet our standard of how we do things from start to finish.
