This job was a bit unusual, and
Sacramento Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
and
Sacramento Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
took on the
Sacramento Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
I needed them to play with great professionalism and dependability. I designed almost all of the new kitchen, but I expected them to raise any concerns they had about my decisions, suggest better solutions and help me get more bang for my buck. They also gave me ample opportunity to put in my 2 cents (OK, a dollar), and they delivered with good humor and skill.
I purchased the cabinets, appliances, range hood, sink, faucet, paint, undercabinet and pendant light fixtures in advance, and R&R provided everything else, including sheet vinyl flooring, quartz countertops and glass tile backsplash (all my choices from their suppliers), as well as my desired half glass-block, half awning style window. They did the demolition, plumbing, electrical, ductwork, appliance and fixture installations, fitting and adjusting the cabinets, and built a custom microwave shelf and various other elements. They also installed a utility sink on the patio for use during the project. Their subcontractors handled drywall, stucco around the window, fabricating and installing the counter and the flooring.
The countertop installer needed extra lead time between measuring and fabrication; we had to change window suppliers in mid-project; and the drywall, taping and texturing required drying and curing time. Except for those few unavoidable delays, everything went very smoothly, and most of the job was finished in about six weeks. There were no change orders, although I did pay a bit extra to have some of the drawer fronts reinforced to assuage my concerns about mounting the pulls.
The only sore point for me was that the drywall subcontractor didn't take enough care to seal off the work area, and he generated an extremely fine dust that found its way onto every nearby surface. R & R wasn't strictly responsible for this, but in the future I'll pay special attention to this issue.
I may not have the greatest design sense, but the kitchen ended up almost exactly as I had imagined it, and the final cost matched the original estimate. Between the two of them,
Sacramento Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
and
Sacramento Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
did expert work on everything they didn't subcontract, and the subs did expert work as well. I am quite pleased with my new kitchen.

I had three different contractors bid our job and talked to many, many more on the phone I felt really confident going with
Sacramento Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
and now that they've done the work, I cannot say enough positive things about my experience with
Sacramento Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
Christian and his very professional staff.
The top things that impressed us were:
-
Sacramento Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
visited our home for the initial bid and spent ample time to discuss our issues, thoughts about how to address certain projects, and really invested his time and creativity in helping us come to the decisions we made. It was obvious he was very knowledgeable and professional from the start.
-
Sacramento Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
is responsive and a great communicator. These two things are critically important, and I've also found, somewhat rare. He listens, explains things thoroughly and carefully, and was always willing to provide extra feedback and design ideas when we asked for them.
- The crew was prompt, professional, and knowledgeable. They were extremely helpful and responsible and cleaned up the job site thoroughly every single day so that we and our toddler could go about our normally daily lives with minimal disruption every evening.
-
Sacramento Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
carefully oversaw the job his crew was doing - always being in communication and reviewing the work.

- Our job turned out to be much more complicated than originally anticipated, because of shoddy work that had been done in the home previously, which we were not aware of.
Sacramento Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
and his crew were extremely careful and thoughtful in: 1) identifying the issues we needed to be aware of; 2) communicating them to us thoroughly and carefully; 3) addressing the issues they found in the most cost-effective and safest way possible; and 4) offering valuable guidance on how to proceed with other construction and electrical issues we'd want to decide how to address in our home in the future.
- The quality of their construction work was outstanding. The wall they built is visibly the cleanest work in the entire house. They also matched texture, paint, and moldings beautifully and managed drywall over a tricky and uneven step flawlessly.
We will definitely use them again.

This company is very professional and on time. Their work is high quality and they can solve any problems that will arise. They showed up right on time to install my ceiling fans. It took about 3 hours to install 5 fans but unfortunately, the company I bought the fans from forgot to include the receivers. We rescheduled the rest of the work + the last install for a few weeks down the line and they once again did a great job at the second install. They saved me

Overall, working with
Sacramento Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
was a good experience. Hiring a contractor can be a stressful and tiring process.
Sacramento Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
made it as easy and painless as possible.
Sacramento Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
's crew did a fair amount of work preparing the house for a new skin of stucco (repairing termite damage, replacing an exterior door, eave prep, etc). His crew was always on time and performed quickly and efficiently. I have to complement Bill in his attention to detail. He did excellent work.
The stucco sub-contractor for this job did high-quality work. Due to their workload at other sites and the weather, my job was extended by a couple of months which was not a big deal. My only criticism of the stucco crew was that it was difficult to nail down their schedule. They had a tendency to show up unannounced or give very little notice. This is minor when compared to the quality of their work, which was very good.
I would hire

again for future work.

I am a single woman and I don't know any contractors. I was worried about finding a contractor I could trust. I found
Sacramento Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
through Angie's List. I needed an upstairs loft converted into an insulated bedroom with a door.
Sacramento Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
Powers came out and bid the project with a thorough and reasonable bid which I received within a week of his first visit. This was a smaller project for
Sacramento Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
and he worked it in between other jobs and finished the project in two and half weeks. He was very professional, kind, helpful, trustworthy, punctual, a good communicator and he did an outstanding job on the project. Everything went as I had expected. The room turned out great. He matched the paint and the texture of the walls to the existing living room such that you cannot tell the upper room used to be a loft. He is a really talented craftsman. He did an excellent job cleaning up the work site before he left. The project couldn't have gone any smoother and I couldn't be happier with the finished product. I would definitely use
Sacramento Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
Powers' services again and I highly recommend him for interior contracting work.

The service was not provided and a time frame was not given as to when the services would be provided.
The Owner contacted me about providing service the first week of January
then followed with a story about how he couldn't do the work. He said
"It wouldn't be long and I'm on the top of the list to receive ...More /> services". He also said that he would "be in touch". He has not
contacted me about providing the service or given me a time frame.

This is an interim rating since
Sacramento Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
&
Sacramento Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
have not yet really started.
First things:
a. very competitive price on the work requested.
b. professional first site visit
However, it took a long time to get the estimate back from them, then after signing the contract and sending the initial downpayment, it took a bit of time for them to contact me. Unfortunately in the interim I rarely hear much from them...so have no idea of what is going on.
We are working out issues/pricing related to the door I want, but I think they are quite busy right now (was told they were on a deadline to finish a bathroom remodel) and this job may not be high on their list of projects. :-(
I will add or alter my review as time goes on and they actually start work... but I am looking forward to having them start work!

I'd like to start by saying that we have lived in the remodeled house now for 7 months and everyday are amazed by the quality, beauty, and convenience of our (basically) new home. Guests to our home suggest that we send photos to modern design magazines. It really turned out great. We have had to call
Sacramento Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
on only one problem since moving back in (failure of the hot water heater- not something that the installers did wrong), and he was responsive and took care of the problem. We feel that we learned a lot over the course of the year (thats how long the process took) and that there were a number of ups and
Sacramento Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
along the way. Here is some advice on working with
Sacramento Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
- make sure that you communicate clearly and often about what you want and how this compares to what is "standard." We did not understand this distinction and picked out high end finishes that significantly added to the cost of the project. We were repeatedly surprised when the bill for work completed would be higher than the cost estimates originally provided by
Sacramento Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
. These finishes also significantly added to the time to complete the project and I wish that we had also reconfigured our expectations for when we would be able to move back in, as we were frustrated and surprised by how long we needed to be out of the house.
Sacramento Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
only employs workers who do high quality work, are professional, and take pride in what they do. On our project, this turned out to mean truly exceptional workmanship, a clean worksite, and our being able to trust that the workers were paying as much attention to detail as us (or more!). Sometimes things needed to be redone, which added time. Sometimes new workers did not achieve these high standards and had to be let go. IN the end, the product was great, but (again) this added to the time it all took as the crew was often small. In sum, we are very happy with the home
Sacramento Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
built us. I wish that from the beginning we could have had a greater understanding that our vision was high end while the project in the estimate was more basic. If we had understood that difference, we probably wouldn't have had as many surprises in terms of cost and time to completion. I would highly recommend working with
Sacramento Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
and his excellent crew, but also making sure that you are all speaking the same language when forming a project budget and timelines.

, owner and on-site contractor worked well to keep the project on schedule. If there was questions, he was right there to provide answers and many times offered great suggestions. if you noticced something you didn't like, he would address it immediately. He is a task master, and as such, the project moved along at a steady pace to the projected compeletion date. As an example, after the contract was completed, I noticed a small plumbing problem in one of the bathrooms, called
Sacramento Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
and the next morning, 8 AM sharp,
Sacramento Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
and his plumber were at my door and problem was soon fixed.

I needed several small jobs done, some of which required varied skills in excess of what a handyman could handle. Very happy to find
Sacramento Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
and his assistant who were more than qualified, so i could avoid calling plumber, electrician etc., and the cost was probably half of what that would've cost=great value. Scheduled the two of them for a half day complete the four jobs. All four were done and cleaned up by the time I came home. The shower shelves were an add on to a recent bathroom remodel by a different contractor, who installed the first two shelves,but
Sacramento Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
's install was noticeably cleaner (no chipping around the drill holes). One small issue with a leak where the water filter tied into the supply line was due to faulty hardware (he may have used a cheap fiiting), but he sent his guy over right away to repair /replace. No problems since. Good communication skills and responsiveness are a big plus. I will definitely get my first bid on a planned kitchen remodel from
