We would like to testify to the wonderful work
performed on our home.
They removed the popcorn ceilings in three bebrooms and painted. They also painted the external.
Both groups showed extra ordinary professional ship. They worked witth us in every way giving us the opportunity too choose our colors. They completely cleared up and carried off all trsh and debris. The quality of work was second to none. The crew was very polite and Very Professional.
My wife and I wuld not hesitate to refer this business to friends and familles.

San Jose Architects Provider Name Locked
and
San Jose Architects Provider Name Locked
, his designer, were fantastic to work with.
San Jose Architects Provider Name Locked
and
San Jose Architects Provider Name Locked
both met with us to walk through our home and understand the project we wanted to do.
San Jose Architects Provider Name Locked
's bid was competitive, but the biggest reason we decided to hire him is because we could see how passionate he is about his work and we felt that
San Jose Architects Provider Name Locked
's vision was a perfect match for the look and feel we were going for.
San Jose Architects Provider Name Locked
was very helpful in the planning phase and helped design our kitchen layout and cabinets, as well as our master bathroom. She was also extremely helpful when it came time to start picking finishes. She totally understood our style and helped us narrow down design options. In addition, she was not afraid to let us know when she felt that we may be making choices that we could regret. We greatly valued her opinions and support!
We had bought an older home that needed a lot of updating and improvement, so the job was quite big. Luckily, we were not living in the home during the remodel. However, we stopped by to check the progress at least a couple of times per week and were always impressed that the workers cleaned up after themselves each day and stored their tools even though they knew we weren't living there. Whenever we did see the workers, they were always pleasant and courteous.
About mid-way through the project,
San Jose Architects Provider Name Locked
's foreman leading up our project left the company. This caused some delays, but the new foreman,
San Jose Architects Provider Name Locked
, was even better than the first and did everything he could to help make up for lost time. We had told
San Jose Architects Provider Name Locked
from the beginning that he could take his time because we weren't in any hurry to move in (we were living at my father's house so that I could take care of him until he passed away from cancer). The project was completed about 2 months behind schedule, but we had added some work to the original scope and wanted
San Jose Architects Provider Name Locked
to take his time to make sure everything was done exactly how we wanted it.
We have now lived in our home for about 3 months. After we moved in we began to notice certain issues and defects and kept a running list of items to be fixed.
San Jose Architects Provider Name Locked
sent his crew back out about a month ago and fixed everything on our list with great attention to detail. We could not be any happier with our "new" (old) home!
We have worked with other contractors on smaller projects at our previous homes before and they always quoted us much lower, but the final bill was much higher and the quality of the work was lacking. We paid
San Jose Architects Provider Name Locked
exactly what he originally quoted us and are very happy with the results. We would highly recommend
San Jose Architects Provider Name Locked
for his professionalism, attention to detail, and passion for his work. He is an honest person and demands the same level of honesty and quality from his crew.

This has been a very good and fun project to work with them on.
San Jose Architects Provider Name Locked
came out and initially assessed the situation & helped level set both what to expect from them, and the project. From the initial consultation, I felt good about moving forward with them.
After starting the agreement,
San Jose Architects Provider Name Locked
came out & spent a good amount of time measuring & talking through strategies.
I have been very impressed with the level of detail, and personalization they have provided each step of the way. I know the status of the project & what to expect next.
I will use them for anything needing structural design work in the future - they are awesome!

I am very happy with the quality of work that was done.
We were on a very tight schedule to get the work completed, but the schedule slipped several times. This was a major problem as he wasn't the only contractor doing work and there were dependancies. He did finally complete it in time and we were able to move in when we wanted to.

We moved out in September 2009 after the plans were submitted to the city. That process usually takes 2-3 weeks but the city took 2 months to approve the plans, mostly due to being short-staffed. Almost the entire house was gutted down to the studs and about 21 pillars were added under the house for stability. We encountered very few problems but when we did, full attention was given to addressing it as quickly as possible.
San Jose Architects Provider Name Locked
was our site manager and was a jewel to work with. No matter what, he was always calm and very knowledgeable. He always treated us with respect and no matter how many times we called him, he never appeared irritated or annoyed.

has it's own electrician,
San Jose Architects Provider Name Locked
(who was very good and made many good suggestions for things we hadn't previously considered), a plumber, tile man and cabinet maker,
San Jose Architects Provider Name Locked
.
San Jose Architects Provider Name Locked
was such a perfectionist and skilled craftsman. He takes great pride in his work and it really shows. If something was off by 1/16th of an inch, he wasn't happy until it was right. We are proud to show off his work.

As far as the sub-contractors enlisted by
San Jose Architects Provider Name Locked
, the only sub-contractor that we were not happy with was the painter. We felt that both the exterior and interior paint jobs were definitely not up to the
San Jose Architects Provider Name Locked
standards. After the exterior was completed and we inspected it with the sub-contractor, we started on the front porch and the list of corrections and the "blue" tape was so extensive, that the sub-contractor finally said it was a lousy job and he must not have done a very good job of checking up on his workers and he would have them re-paint it. Even after the re-paint, there were still many problems that had to be fixed. On the interior, in the rooms that were strong colors, not neutrals, instead of putting a little paint on the walls and letting us look at it (which is what we thought was going to happen), he painted the entire interior. The guest room and the master bedroom colors were so different from the little paint samples we had looked at, we were shocked. The guest room was suppose to be a light lavender and it was almost purple and the master bedroom was suppose to be a soothing green and it turned out to be closer to neon green. Everyone that saw it couldn't believe we had chosen those colors. Even though he had only put on one coat and it still needed the second coat, he gave us an additional bill of about $1500 to repaint the two rooms, which didn't even include the ceiling or trim.
San Jose Architects Provider Name Locked
, the owner of The
San Jose Architects Provider Name Locked
, being the consummate professional that she is, stepped in to handle the issue. We became aware a short time later that
San Jose Architects Provider Name Locked
was no longer using that sub-contractor.

The workers were careful about doing as little damage as possible to landscaping, etc. and cleaned up after themselves on a regular basis. The communication with all members of the team was close to flawless.

We moved back in almost a year after moving out and are thoroughly enjoying the new space. A testament to the dedication of the entire team, there are only a few minor things we would do differently.

From our first encounter with the owner,
San Jose Architects Provider Name Locked
, to working with her team of dedicated, experienced, thoughtful and caring individuals, our decision to use this company never wavered. We have had individuals we don't know, come up and talk to us when we are outside and tell us they watched as the house was being worked on and comment that it turned out beautiful and that the second story we added looks like it was always there. One of our goals was that the addition of the second story not look like a "box" set on top of the original structure and it doesn't. We are so pleased with the finished product, that we have invited some of those individuals who stop by to compliment us on the remodel, to come in to see the inside, even though we don't know them. There have also been individuals who heard that we installed an elevator and have asked if they could see it and we invite them in, too.

We have had many individuals ask us who the contractor was and we do not hesitate to highly recommend this company.

I think everything stood out, he was very professional and came fully prepared. He was able to answer all of our questions and set up an additional meeting.

We are now putting the plans out for bid, but so far
San Jose Architects Provider Name Locked
's team has been wonderful. His staff is very good at what they do. If you need a competent architect with over 500 projects under his belt he is worth checking out. The only cautions I'd give are: - He has all the business he can handle, so be prepared to wait a month or two before they can get your schedule any time to start on your project. - Be sure to setup the next meeting at the end of the last meeting, otherwise it can take weeks to get back on the schedule. -

's firm does mainly high end work, so our under $1 million dollar remodel is a small project for them. Expect Architect fees to run 10% of your project, but after you see the detailed level of their work and their good taste you'll realize it is well worth it.

The designs were awesome! Unfortunately, the build-out costs were a bit higher than we'd expected, so we opted to find an existing office space that required little or no construction. I only wish I had other projects right now so I could work with this architect again!

was very personable, and tried really hard. However, we ran into so many issues with the city, and
San Jose Architects Provider Name Locked
''forgetting'' things we had discussed that it took 18 months from beginning, to a set of approved plans from the city. He knows a lot about building, but seems to struggle with the architecture and paying attention to details. We would not use him again.
