of

. was the best person/company I've ever dealt with in this regard. He was honest, accurate, punctual, and fast. The quality of work was superb. What I found most impressive--especially in comparison to other contractors--is how he well he managed scheduling for subcontractors. I've never seen such a smooth transition. This guy is incredible.

So I normally do most of my own work. But this project just looked bad. The original floor was a mess with regards to not being anywhere near level and it was a pretty big area. There appeared to maybe be 2 options to go with, one involved placing a step to deal with basically 2 different elevations in the room or just dropping the whole room to one level.
San Francisco Basement Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
argued strongly against putting a step in because in general it just doesn't work, people don't see it, will trip over it, etc. I got this same advice from another contractor and I agreed that no step would be better.



So going with no step meant one part of the room was going to have the floor drop down about 4 inches from its original height. The low side of the room was going to come up about 3 inches. Thinking about that and how to fix it, I was glad I was hiring someone else to do the work.



We had the work start while we went on vacation because we expected it to be noisy and a mess. Mainly the concrete removal. We were gone for 4 work days and when we came back all the concrete was gone and most of the new concrete was finished. It took a few more work days for the concrete guys to finish up. This part took a little longer but I believe they dropped their other jobs to get as much done while we were gone, that once we came back they were catching up on some other work. Either way it was not a problem for us.



Now that we had a new, flat floor the tile installer came and did his job fairly quickly. We were very happy with the tile installer. He had a very good eye for all the details. He did a great job with the tile alignment and he came up with good solutions for some of the difficult transitions. He did an excellent job.



The last part of the job was for the carpenters. There was a little work needed right before the tile involving 4 steps which needed to become 5 steps because of the height adjustment. Since we were tiling the stairs we also wanted to put an oak bull nose on the stairs, so that was done prior to tiling. The rest of the carpentry work was basically cleaning up the wall to floor transition, mainly where the floor dropped, re-installing baseboard and a small amount of sheet rock repair. We had a storage room off the area of floor that was dropped and a laundry room. Its hard to describe what it looked like in progress and it took me a while to visualize how it was going to end up, but it ended up working out great.



Overall we got exactly what we wanted. We are extremely happy with
San Francisco Basement Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
and his crew and would definitely hire him again.

Konstantin (
San Francisco Basement Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
owner) was the general contractor for the project, but he did a lot of the work himself. He also brought subcontractors that he has been working with for some time to do the plumbing, electrical, tiles, HVAC and other specialized parts of the project. We found Konstantin to be very honest, easy to work with and very responsive to our needs. He was very knowledgeable with respect to suggesting options of how to remodel certain areas of the house in order to optimize the available space or make it more livable. He obtained all of the permits and dealt with all of the inspections from the city.
The price that we paid was fair for the excellent quality of the work. We had no problems with sticking to the original estimates in terms of both time to complete and price estimate. In fact, we were so impressed with the quality of the work in our basement and kitchen that we decided to remodel the rest of the house. Given that we requested the change in the project scope in the last minute, Konstantin had to split his time between several projects to be able to accomodate it. Nevertheless, he still completed it within the revised timeframe and budget.

Finally, subsequently we have used
San Francisco Basement Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
on a couple of other occasions for some more minor jobs and have been very satisfied with the quality of the work and price. We have already recomended Konstatntin to some of our friends.

We had a acquaintance who had work done by

, after having another contractor drag the process and budget to stratospheric levels. They had nothing but praise for

, but we were suspicious (its my nature). Wow. Three weeks ahead of schedule. And below budget.
San Francisco Basement Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
and his team were extremely prompt (8:30 am to 5:30 pm). They never missed a work day (6 days a week). Extremely clean. Prepped everything to mitigate construction dust. Super reliable, and trustworthy. They were given the keys, they answered the The quality was far beyond what I expected. I truly believe we had a partner in
San Francisco Basement Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
. If he thought something wasn't right, he spoke up and added his comments. He was always correct....down to the suggestion that we measure the TV and not rely on the manufacturer spec sheets. As with any relationship, you know its limits when things go sideways. We had some surprises (as you do with old places), and
San Francisco Basement Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
's response was always to remain calm, and work through it...without the standard "this is out of the scope of what I quoted". The only change order we added was the dry wall on the ceiling when it became evident patching wasn't going to work out. It was reasonable, and we agreed together. Everything looks terrific. The built in looks like furniture. I can not thank
San Francisco Basement Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
and his team enough for making this process as painless as it has been. I plan on hiring him again soon when I replenish my coffers for a deck project.

Frankly, I could not ask for a better contractor.
San Francisco Basement Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
has great honesty and capability, which I think is immediately apparent. Perhaps the fact that he also has a degree in fine arts is an indication of his sensitivity to aesthetic issues that come up. We had weekly meetings during which we sorted out different kinds of decisions, which I really enjoyed. There were a number of problems on this job which included an order from the city to have the work stopped based on my neighbor's unsafe retaining wall which was uncovered in the course of the renovation.

handled it all with grace and good will. One problem came up a year after the job was completed--again not

I am from the mid west and have worked with contractors, both here and there. I can honestly say that

also has Architectural and Interior design consultancy. I found that this service was unique for contractor but very helpful. They charge me for this service on an hourly rate that was very reasonable. I lived in the house while the work was being done, and it was completed on time and w/minimal disruption.

I own an old, four-unit

San Francisco Basement Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
. Initially when I attempted to contact contractors about the various projects that needed attention, they either did not return my calls or presented me with astronomical bids. From the very start,
San Francisco Basement Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
stood out by responding to my call immediately, being the only one to show up on time, and hreturning his bid to me sooner than any other contractors. His price came in somewhere in the mid range of bids that I?d received. I chose to work with
San Francisco Basement Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
because he came across from the very start as professional and hard-working. I?d also seen and read very positive reviews about previous work that his company had performed in the past. After I chose him to do the project and the work commenced, I realize that I had made the right decision. He made a major renovation relatively painless. He was always on site and performed a lot of the work himself. His attention to detail is extraordinary, from structural work to fine finishes

and I designed the custom cabinetry, and when he finished this section of work I realized that he is a true craftsman. He always kept me informed with regards to progress of the project and even took the time to meet with me in the evening to discuss ideas the he or I had. A lot of the work was designed on site and it turned out better than I ever imagined. The site was kept very clean throughout. The project and was done on time and on budget. I cannot recommend

After purchasing our new home we decided to add a ground level 1 bedroom apartment roughly 1000 square feet. The available space required some dirt removal to be able to build the appropriate apartment. After receiving several quotes me and my husband decided to go with
San Francisco Basement Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
. They walked us through the building process and helped with the permits and the architect. the project took just about 2 months to complete. The house has a side entrance to the backyard so we never felt that the house was under construction, the workers were really nice and respectful to our property and us. I am not a construction expert but will do my best to explain what I saw. The build started with removal of the excess dirt to start the foundation for the apartment. Then came the framing and the floor, fallowed by the electrical and the plumbing work. Sheetrock was hung, patched, and painted. In the bathroom we decided to install tile, with all the appropriate accessories. the bedroom has a closet and a window, which was cut open in an existing wall and reinforced. The entire apartment has hardwood floors in each room except for the bathroom. The were even able to install a door in the back of the apartment and create a small storage space, really neat. The kitchen and the cabinets created very nice kitchen with black marble counter top. The entire apartment received 4 windows, front door, and a patio was built in front of the door in the back yard. We even asked if they could rebuild our fence which was falling apart at the time, so they agreed and gave us a fairly cheap price, since we were already doing the apartment they gave us a deal. Overall me and my husband are very pleased with the experience, for the money we invested and the price increase on our house, this was well worth it.
