schedule time to come out and meet with us to understand what we wanted. He was very flexible with his schedule and was on time for every meeting! He asked great questions and offered several ideas. We had multiple meetings and he explained every step of the process. The final drawings were very professional and complete. He even gave us a list of General Contractors that he recommends. I can't say enough positive things about our experience with
Porter. We would definitely use his company again and recommend him highly!

arrived on time and was very thorough in his measurements. He also discussed options for cabinet layout.
Following the site visit,
provided the design very quickly and always answered my follow-up questions promptly.
In all my communications with him, the level of professionalism was impressive. Although, my interaction was limited to this one service, I would recommend him without hesitation.

" We are renovating a house we purchased in Spring TX and are doing some renovation in advance of our moving from WV. I found
Dover Architects Provider Name Locked
on Angie's list and noted his consistent A rating. I knew we were going to have to be able to pass the scrutiny of the
Dover Architects Provider Name Locked
authorization process to add a covered porch at the rear of the house, so desired to have appropriate plans drawn up. At our request,
Dover Architects Provider Name Locked
came to the Texas house to do the initial consultation with us on short 24 hr. notice, since we can only travel to the Texas house for short periods. There was a $100 weekend on-site consult fee, which is deducted from the final cost if a contract is undertaken. There was an additional $500 down payment at contract signing, which was likewise deducted from the overall final charge.
Dover Architects Provider Name Locked
gave us a $100 "Angie's List" discount, making the total cost $1400.00. Since we were in another state, we communicated by e-mail, pdf and text. He met with us in Spring on our
Dover Architects Provider Name Locked
4th trip to confirm the final plan and give us copies of the printed-to-scale plan document. He subsequently prepared and delivered 3D elevation drawings (4 copies and a jump drive) of the proposed porch for the general contractor to present to the
Dover Architects Provider Name Locked
with the scaled plan document.
Dover Architects Provider Name Locked
is congenial, professional, competent and easy to talk to and work with. We can see why he has a reputation for excellence and is A rated on Angie's List.

"After several meetings with us
Dover Architects Provider Name Locked
came up with some rough drawings, and after further meetings prepared architectural drawings. He suggested a contractor, who we interviewed and decided to retain.
Dover Architects Provider Name Locked
got the drawings approved by our City and then oversaw the construction under a modified American Association of Architects contract.
Dover Architects Provider Name Locked
spent the time to find out what we wanted and then develop a concept to deliver it. His design and the drawings were very creative and functional. The final product exceeded our expectations and did the final product after the construction.
Dover Architects Provider Name Locked
had the drawings approved by the Architectural Board of Review on the first try.
Being inexperienced in construction we elected to have
Dover Architects Provider Name Locked
do the oversight. He answered all our questions as the work progressed and followed up with the contractor on any concerns we had. The interim billings became confusing, but
Dover Architects Provider Name Locked
took the time to sit down with me and make sure that I understood what was being charged and what should be paid.
The project finished on time, and we were very satisfied with the final product. As we began to move in our furniture and live in the new space, the excellence of
Dover Architects Provider Name Locked
design really emerged for us.
This project was overwhelming for us. We will not undertake anything like this again. But if we did,
Dover Architects Provider Name Locked
would be our first call.

Dover Architects Provider Name Locked
was a joy to work with. He was responsive, kept his appointments and was on time. His plans for the house were beautiful and exactly what I wanted - unfortunately I needed to scale back the scope of the remodel to stay in my budget. He helped revise the plans to do that.
When I had a great deal of difficulty with the remodeling company doing the work, he helped advise me on what my rights were and how best to try to resolve the problems. He was supportive of me and helped me get through a very difficult situation. If I ever need to do hire another architect, it will be him. He was professional and I have to say he was worth 3x what I was billed.

was great to work with. Very responsive! We had an idea of what we needed and
Dover Architects Provider Name Locked
was able to put it on paper and solve some of the design issues that my husband and I weren't able to figure out. What he provided was creative, cost effective and exactly what we were looking for. We will absolutely use him again!

Dover Architects Provider Name Locked
responded in a timely manner to our request, scheduled an initial visit to our home to discuss our plans and provided us with a comprehensive and accurate quote for services. He scheduled multiple design review meetings at appropriate intervals to ensure he was successfully meeting our objectives. The result was a comprehensive set of design documents that meet the needs of the local Conservation Commission, the local building inspector and the selected general contractor. In addition,
Dover Architects Provider Name Locked
provided insight and guidance to us that could only come from a seasoned professional well acquainted with all current building practices and codes. Lastly,
Dover Architects Provider Name Locked
provided a comprehensive list of general contractors that would best match our unique requirements.

"Great concept and well worth the money. The websiter spells out the process and it was a lot of fun. I would use this service again for sure.

"I can not say that we had the best experience with this firm. While the plans were decent, I regret that I didn't follow my own heart and insist that the house be designed on the plot that I had wanted, but was swayed by their "expertise" and now have plans that are not worth the paper they are printed on. They are very much committed to following their own ideas, and while they say they listen to the clients, this is not the case. The fact that we walked away after spending over $30K say a lot. I don't know how I missed the other negative reviews on this site, but I wish I had done more homework. I am confident that there are other providers that are as competent and can preform these same design services at a much more affordable price. We are sad about our lost investment but are so so grateful they are not building our house.

"I hired
Dover Architects Provider Name Locked
for the renovation of mybathrooms. The whole project was made easy for me (and my neighbors who were not disturbed) when I chose to work with them. The workers exceeded my expectations to complete the project. They began with recommending plans to me on how to go about it and then gave me a quotation. The contract covered everything from their workmanship to the products and materials that were to be used in the project.They took care of everything from the tiles to the plumbing. The job included installation of new porcelain tiles on the floor, the addition of a new toilet, a bigger cabinet, new wallpaper, lightfixtures, faucets, toilet paper holder, and towel rings. A benchwas built while the tub was replaced with a completely tiled shower area. Further, a small partition wall was included between the toilet and the sink. The door was replaced to finish things off.Each job was seen to by a different crew, and each worker washelpful in providing me with relevant updates. They arrivedright on time every day, consulted me courteously, andremodeled my bathrooms, leaving no traces of dirt or other mess behind them. I am one happy customer, and would gladly recommend their services to anyone who asks.One thing I really liked about
Dover Architects Provider Name Locked
is that the bill they gave me after the project was completed was in the same ballpark as the quote they provided me initially. In thepast, I have worked with contractors who quoted me one price and billed me a significantly greater amount. I was impressed by the work ethic of
Dover Architects Provider Name Locked
, and the fact that theythought of my expenses and delivered me the best value without going over-budget.
