How does your business stand out?

Traylor Design & Construction, LLC has been building and remodeling homes since 2005. My work is nothing less than the best, it has set me apart from the competition. The job is not complete until each of my customers is fully satisfied. I have the determination and ethics to do what is right, regardless of the the obstacles or previous contractor's ill work that I may encounter. Unfortunately and all too often I hear stories of the "bad contractor." Save yourself the trouble... contact clients of mine, schedule a free consultation with me and choose peace of mind, instead of stress and frustration. I guarantee and stand behind my work.

    Traylor Design did a great job on my recent deck rebuild. His folks came when they said they would, and they finished the job in less time than they said it would take. They offered one of the best prices of all the bids I received. His team was friendly, hard working, and responsive to our questions. And many of our neighbors have come by to say how good the deck looks! Thanks Traylor Design!

    The price and workmanship was excellent. Traylor D&C exceeded my expectations, I had an issue while they were putting up the fence, I conveyed my concernes and they stopped the construction and corrected the problem. I would highly recommend them to everyone.

    Andre and his team did a fantastic job. I hired him to tile my bathroom, install custom shelves, fix plaster cracks, add tow molding in our living room, and paint two hallways. All of this was quoted and scheduled within a week and completed while I was out of town. He and his team was very communicative and respectful of my wife who was present during the work. My wife even got him to install 5 ceiling fans in addition to the contracted work. We are both very happy and hope to hire Traylor Design for future projects.

    They did such a good job! They did exactly what I asked for and at a price that was much cheaper than everyone else. They also finished the job really quick and ahead of schedule and they cleaned up every day after they left. Great guys and good work!

    Kitchen Remodel
    Verified Review
    They will get my repeat business
    Back in January (2017), my husband and I hired Andre at Traylor Design and Construction to renovate our kitchen. We had already sourced the materials that we wanted to use—new appliances, new cabinets, new flooring, new backsplash and countertops—but we had decided we wanted to hire an experienced contractor rather than to try to do it ourselves. I couldn’t be happier with the results. Andre was professional and personable in every interaction, and his crew was polite, clean, and skilled. We had several little hiccups (we have an old house—some pipes were not where we were expecting them to be when we tore out the cabinets) but they addressed and overcame them quickly and with quality work. Andre was happy to work with any materials or designs I provided but offered another recommendation for sourcing our granite countertops. His recommendation saved my husband and I $200, improved the quality of the countertop we were going to receive, and shortened the order-to-installation time by over a week (at least). Andre and his crew even recommended small design tweaks that would make the kitchen look better. Considering I am not an interior designer by any means, these recommendations were welcomed. I’ve heard horror stories of kitchen renovations dragging on for weeks (or months!) and constantly creeping higher and higher in cost—that was a huge concern of mine when selecting a contractor. Andre and his crew stuck to the budget and completed everything within 2 weeks! We will definitely hire them again for future projects.

    Hire Traylor Design for ALL your home improvements!
    Andre and his team have been wonderful in many home repairs we will undertake this year. His team replaced the carpeting in our home and did a fantastic job. We are currently working with Andre on putting a full bath in our finished basement and the project will start next week. He is very informative and knowledgeable and I would recommend this company for all your home improvements. Oh and the "price is right"!

    Traylor did great!
    Traylor Design and Construction did a very nice job on my kitchen and bathroom ventilation projects. Both projects were relatively small but complicated jobs that involved a lot of different skills. Andre and his crew were easy to deal with and the price was very reasonable. I am very happy with the results and would recommend Traylor to others.

    Excellent Experience and Fabulous Results
    After going through a very stressful renovation a few years ago with another contractor, we were so thankful to have such a wonderful experience this time with Traylor Design and Construction LLC. Andre and his team built a gorgeous custom porch skirt for our home that is truly stunning. Not only did they do an exceptional job, but they stuck to the timeline, were very neat and organized, and went above and beyond to meet our expectations. We highly recommend Traylor Design and look forward to hiring them again with any future projects.

    Great Experience
    We had the pleasure of Traylor Design & Construction LLC repainting our entire home. Although our place is relatively small, the architecture could be quite challenging to navigate from a painter's perspective. Andre, Marco, and the rest of the team literally turned our vision into reality, architecture and all. We made sure to communicate with them and they made sure to do the same in return. In addition, we had a barn door installed that required additional maneuvering and it turned out beautifully. I highly recommend Traylor Design & Construction LLC for anyone requiring painting or remodeling needs.

    Everything you'd want a contractor to be
    Andre was excellent; his crew replaced a fence for us. They arrived on time, did nice work and even ended up doing some custom work because something we had asked for wasn't available. There were a couple things we asked them to revise because it wasn't quite what we had expected, but Andre and his crew took care of it immediately to our satisfaction. His crew doesn't speak the best English, so there were a few miscommunications. Other than that, we were very pleased. We would definitely work with them again.

    Job well done...
    From the outset Andre and his office team were a pleasure to deal with. He met with me to get an overview of the job required and the following day gave me a budget and dates when he could complete the work. All went according to plan and I would have no hesitation recommending Traylor Design & Construction to others.

    Andre and his guys were very easy to work with. I needed help with a cover for our walkout basement and they came up with a design that worked out beautifully with the deck. They worked a full 2 days and Andre came and checked up during the day and made sure the workers had all the materials they needed. It was very smooth and I will certainly go back to Traylor Design and Construction for any future projects.

    Framing Carpentry
    Verified Review
    Andre and his team finished roughly 1600sqft of my basment. This included a bathroom with a custom shower, replacement of patio door, a wetbar and a media/exercise room. Everything was done to code and inspected wothout any issues. Thenproject was much more involved than originally planned, but his crew worked hard and got the majority of the basment framed and finished within a month, with anfew detailed items taken care of soon after. That included work stoppage for inspections. Overall, i'm impressed and appreciative of the work done.

    Initially, I left an avg review for Traylor Design based on lack in communication. When Andre saw my review, he contacted me immediately and seemed honestly disappointed in the initial experience. After further discussion and another visit to my place, we set up work to install a granite counter top, back splash tiling, and unique small repairs in the kitchen and bathroom. All three were completed very well..and at a very fair price. And his crew worked hard to make sure I was satisfied with the results. We will contact him for work on a new home in the future. Thank you Traylor Designs!

    Verified Review
    Andre is a bit of a miracle worker. He had me worried initially when he was running a little bit late on the first day, but as I understood later, it was because he was completing another job. And by complete, I mean COMPLETE. Over the course of that first day, and one full day after he and his team completed two projects that had been bugging us for months. Andre performed excellent work quickly and at a reasonable price. We could not be happier with how it turned out.

    Hardwood Floor Refinishing
    Verified Review
    We had a wonderful experience with Andre Silva and his crew. The first job that we hired Andre and his team was to do restoration on our hardwood floors. Andre came out to our home and gave us a great estimate. He offered a military discount for us and we were very happy to hire him for the job. His Team showed up on time and got started right away. They covered the entire area where the work was going to be performed. Sanded down all the floors, prepared all the hardwood floors for application of the new stain and sanded down all the steps in the stair case. They prepared all the wood surface to the application of the new stain of the entire staircase. Applied the new stain on the entire floor level including closets. They did a great job cleaning up and was done in one full day. I had them come out the next day to put a few more coats of stain on the steps because the woods was a little lighter. They came back and did the job on their lunch break. I was blown away how the floors looked when they were finished. The hardwood floors looked brand new an was defiantly a selling point for our house. We actually hired Andre and his team to paint our home too. Andre hands down bet any estimate that I had and they did such an amazing job on the floors I was happy to hire them again. The painters showed up on time and started the job right away. Our entire down stairs was painted, the bathroom, three bedrooms and the kitchen. I was very happy because Andre was able to match the paint that we had on the walls. The painters did a great job and had it all done in one day. They clean up any paint that may of splattered and was very careful when painting around the hardwood floors. I also hired Andre to power wash the entire outside of the home which was a project. Andre took on this endeavor and he did a fantastic job. The house looked amazing when he was done. I will say I had over $3000 dollars worth of work put into our home to put it on the market and thanks to Andre it was on the market three days and we had two offers on our home. We just want to say thank you to Andre and his team for making our house look amazing. We will definitely recommend Andre and his team to anyone looking to make their home beautiful!!

    Had an appointment for Saturday at 4pm. Revolved my entire day around this appointment. Andre called at 3:55 to tell me he could not make it and could we reschedule for the next day at 2pm. I told him that would work. Well, Sunday at 2pm rolled around but Andre did not. I called to find out what was going on and got his voicemail. It's now Monday and still no call back. Thanks for screwing up my whole weekend Andre. I wont be using you for my over $20k project. Your loss.

    Hi Sandra, I am apologize for the miscommunication, I had thought we agreed on Monday, which would have been the next business day. I wish you the best in finding someone else to do the job for you.

    Roof Installation or Replacement

    I had a shed roof replaced and Andre was prompt and professional in every way. One thing that especially impressed me was that when Andre realized that he would be fifteen minutes late, he telephoned and let me know. I would hire Andre to do other projects without reservation.

    Andre and his crew built me a large privacy fence around my property. His pricing was very reasonable. Andre was very informative and his crew was very hardworking. They started when he said they would and completed when he said they would. I am satisfied with the work. They also cleaned up, you couldn't tell workers where working for two days. I am also using him for a deck and screen porch.

  • Angela R. Aug 12, 2014
    Andre completed a kitchen remodel for me a few months ago and I could not be happier. I had an old outdated kitchen that was terrible to come home to. He put up brand new white cabinets, added an island, recessed lighting, granite, removed a wall, added an island, glass tile backsplash, new paint, stainless steel sink, and removed a soffit. The difference is like night and day. The work was done very professionally and looks absolutely beautiful. I have had contractor nightmares in the past and I will only be calling Andre in the future.

    Not a trust worthy person. Late for initial appointment for estimate. When called to start the job, setup time to have him come to pickup deposit and he was a no show, no call. When I contacted him the next day his excuse was very shaky. Not a very professional outfit.

    We hired Andre to install recessed lights in our living room, and in our finished basement, and to enclose our exposed staircase. He completed everything in 2 days. I was impressed that he and one of his workers worked nearly non-stop from early morning, until late afternoon. His prices were reasonable and he went out of his way to not cut corners which we appreciated. He seems to be a very busy guy however, and my only complaint is that he took longer than he said to complete each estimate. Given how soon we wanted the work done though, I'm really impressed that he managed to fit us into his schedule while also not rushing through the job. I would hire him again.

    Andre and crew were prompt, professional, and hard working. The two framers in particular did an excellent job with precision framing to ensure everything was appropriately covered and straight for drywall. The framers worked three days straight without much break and had a positive attitude throughout the project. I would recommend Andre and the framers to anyone else and will use them again for future work.

    Carpet Installation
    Verified Review
    I needed carpeting installed immediately so that my condo was ready for an open house. Andre said he could get the job done fast. He came out for a same day estimate and beat my competitor's best estimate by 10% (there was a coupon for this on his website). The carpet was installed the next morning. I was happy with the job. The only reason I didn't rate five stars is that Andre was several hours late for the estimate. Something came up with his business, and he called about thirty minutes after our scheduled time to say he would be two hours late. He then called about twenty minutes after our rescheduled time to say he would be about forty minutes late after that. Being late was understandable because Andre was trying to squeeze me into a schedule so the job could be done as soon as possible. I simply would have liked him to call prior to being late to let me know. Overall, a quality carpeting installation was completed in less than 24 hours -- Traylor Design & Construction is a company I would use again in the future.

    Andre was responsive in messaging and was on-time for the estimate; however, I never received any estimate thereafter. I sent a txt and followed up with an email and he acknowledged the message and would get it to me within days. Never happened. I don't know if that is a reflection of work ethic, but I was turned off by the business and left it at that. I can only rate as Poor because the initial consult ended poorly; although everything checked out fine. It's too bad I couldn't get the work done to give a more desirable rating.
    Andre S. Oct 3, 2013

    We are really sorry for that. We just got really busy those pass weeks.


What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
Our pricing is based upon the entire project, scope of work and required materials. The outline of the project, step by step process and complete price of completion is sent packaged in a free proposal via email a few days after a free hands on consultation.
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I first come out to the location for a free consultation and hands on look at the project. I take laser measurements and notes while speaking with the home owner to get an internal view or outlook as to what they envision for themselves in their home. Within a few days I complete and send a free proposal via email with the overall scope of work and price for completion. If terms are agreeable we sit down to go over the final details of the project, sign the contract and lock in their desired date for the start of work.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
