"The search for a general contractor was a long process for me. I had never gone through a home repair that I couldn't take care of myself but this was far more than what my capabilities were. I reached out to several websites and posted what work I needed done and I had over 10 interested contractors that wanted to bid on the job. Along came David with Platinum Construction, a guy with a dream and a vision of starting his own business. He had worked in the industry of home building for years but was just starting to venture out on his own. After many meetings and phone calls with David on my needs I was still a bit hesitant to choose him for the work because I would literally be his first client. After comparing bids with the other contractors, David was very competitive with the others, not the lowest but right in the middle of the pack. I was down to three to choose from and was getting really tired of looking at the gaping hole in my kitchen ceiling and ultimately just felt my gut telling me to go with the new guy to the general contractor arena while my brain and all the advice in the world tells you that you don't want to pick the guy with no jobs under his belt. I am very happy I went with my gut. David was just the guy I needed for this job. The work started on the time that we agreed upon and finished within the time frame we had discussed even know mother nature decided that she wanted to drop over 12 inches of rain on us in two days. David's attention to detail and his support throughout this project put all my concerns about picking the new guy to rest. He came in and did an amazing job under adverse weather conditions and got it done on time. My house looks and feels brand new again. I no longer need to worry about searching for a contractor in the future if I need more work done. I can make one phone call and get the work going shortly after that. I will certainly be a return client to David and Platinum Construction."
