responded quickly to my initial inquiry. He provided us with an accurate estimate, recommended the perfect door, and installed it expertly. We will definitely call him next time we need any kind of construction service.

One of them showed up on time and started the prep work while
Portland Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
picked up the materials including the storm door we ordered from Home Depot. They had a lot to do and completed all of the work beautifully in one day. I like their attitude and the quality of their work. I will most certainly be using them again.

At every step, they followed up, explained details, responded promptly and were very professional and friendly in person, by phone and by email. We were sad that we could not proceed, but they were very understanding. At our request, the are holding on to the work papers they prepared, in hopes that we can have the work done next year... of course with an adjusted estimate. I highly recommend
Portland Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
for consideration on your next project!

Bottom line -
Portland Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
was great. We interviewed several outfits, and
Portland Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
was the only one that would do all the work himself, with one helper. The other people who gave estimates were not the people who would do the work, or even supervise it. This was especially important to us as we were living in another state while the work was being done. During the work
Portland Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
kept us well informed, sending pictures as the work went along and calling with any questions if he was not sure just what we wanted or to discuss something we had not thought about when we asked him to do the work. When

was finished and we arrived to look at the work and for the inevitable punch list items, we were very pleased with the quality of the work, and just as pleased with how
Portland Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
immediately undertook to make right every little thing we had questions about and to do several small things we had forgotten to ask him to do. All in all it was the very unusual really good experience with a contractor on a fairly sizable job. We gave a B for value only because
Portland Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
's bid was higher than a couple of others we got, but it seems likely that we did get our moneys worth in quality of work and peace of mind.

& Company's principal
Portland Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
created beautiful new wooden steps and hand rail up to our front porch, replaced rotted wood at another part of our porch, came up with creative solution for our handrail for our front steps which allowed us to avoid ripping up the concrete, did beautiful subway tile work in our bathroom along the walls of a tub that he installed. Really great quality work overall which suited our 1911 English Craftsman -- especially his wood and tile work which were fantastic. While this was a relatively small set of jobs,
Portland Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
treated us like we were a big project.

is a great communicator and dependable which is a skill set that not a lot of contractors that I work with have. He's both personable and professional. I will definitely contact him for future home renovation needs and recommend him highly.

I'm VERY happy with the outcome. It went better than expected in some areas and not in others as is the nature of remodeling, you never know until you open up an area. He kept me in the loop throughout the process. When something went well and didn't take very long, he reduced his fees to reflect that. When we encountered a problem he laid out my options and gave me his opinion. As a first time homeowner with no previous construction experience I appreciated the ethical guidance I received.
Portland Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
is very knowledgeable, creative and intelligent. He took his time to educate me and shared resources along the way. His resources have ended up being great as well.
Other than feeling happy about the outcome, I enjoyed the process of working with
Portland Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
. One thing I found rare about
Portland Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
was the feeling that he wasn't trying to squeeze money out of me at every turn. He respected my need to save money and accommodated the modifications I needed to make and allowed for portions of the project to be done by me or cheaper vendors.
Portland Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
was a dream to work with and I would happily hire him again!

I called
Portland Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
this morning and was in need of a contractor to do some work on my home. He apologized and said that he would not be able to have it completed when I needed because he was working on several big projects at the moment. He was kind enough to refer me to a couple of people who may be able to help me out. Thank you
Portland Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
for the referrals. I really appreciate it.

was fantastic! He assessed the problem, came up with a solution, and executed it flawlessly. He even had enough time leftover to do a second, smaller project which was totally unexpected. I am used to people doing the bare minimum and calling it "good." The fact that

went above and beyond makes me smile every time I have dinner under the

I would use

The fence building was excellent, both the design and work.
Invasive bamboo work was done with major bulldozer and took most of the day. They fixed a botched bamboo removal job done by someone else.
They worked beyond their hours to
Portland Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
the landscape wall for me, and were prompt in their responses and punctual. ...More /> The team was jovial, professional, creative, and very hard working. They planted a tree for me as an extra.
A very professional, responsible operation.
My only objection was the price for the landscaping work, which I found to be very high.
As for using them again, I would very much like to, but their price point is prohibitive.

Had an excellent working relationship with
Portland Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
, in particular
Portland Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
- the general contractor. Did the usual paring down choices of general contractors and
Portland Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
's price was in the middle. One of the deciding factors of choosing
Portland Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
was his noticeable honesty and frankness as he initially came to the house and sized up the job. He seemed quite competent; he didn't exagerate what could be done given the amount we wanted to spend; he was willing to work with ideas we had and even bring down the price if we wanted to take personal responsibility for some aspects of the project. According to Angie's list he had recently done a basement project very similar to ours which made him an appropriate choice. He was pleasant to talk to.
He estimated the project would take 10-12 weeks and it took just over 10. His initial estimate of the cost of the project included some variances (like having to rerun air ducting if the steel beam didn't allow the existing air ducting) and our costs by the end were within the budget provided at the beginning.
Portland Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
runs a smooth operation. The first few days of the project his guys had our basement demolished and ready for construction. Over the next several weeks he had the walls constructed, the steel i-beam installed, and our stairs rebuilt because the city required us to (which we were happy to do because they were not as safe as we wanted). He had good subcontractors (plumbing, drywall, electrical). I used my own painting company who I knew from a previous job. We were very happy with how our basement turned out.
There were other costs to the project that weren't included in his estimate but which he was clear about from the beginning would depend upon me: owner provided items (shower stall, bathroom vanity, carpet) and the architectural fees. It probably came to another 7,000. So end costs was closer to 57K, and I had estimated that in my budgeting from the beginning.
For myself, two big factors in choosing a contractor are 1. competence and 2. Trustworthiness.
Portland Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
has both. You know he is not going to "pull the wool over your eyes".
Portland Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
was very responsive when I texted, phoned, or emailed him throughout the whole project. I did have to ask him to come back and redo some electrical work a sub forgot to do, which he did without question.
Portland Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
has a relationship with the city, which not all contractors have, of sometimes being able to pull permits "as you go along" in the project, called the FIRS program. I was hesitant at first but having an old house and thus not falling into easy compliance with city code, it was helpful to allow him to begin working even before all the city permits were given. One inspector is assigned to the project and the same inspector works with
Portland Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
to give permits along the way. The familiarity with the project allows the inspector to more easily determine the permits needed for the project. It turned out that I was very grateful that
Portland Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
had that status with the city.
