Honolulu General Contractors Provider Name Locked
came out to look at the project - a bathroom remodel which I assumed would cost about 35k.
Nice guy, we had a great chat, and he seemed very interested. He said that the first step would be to have his architect out to create a plan, which of course I would pay for, and then he would bid it from there. Great. I knew that was the first step all along, but I wanted an architect referred to me - I didn't want to blindly guess someone out of the phone book.
The architect never called.
I called
Honolulu General Contractors Provider Name Locked
again a about two weeks later, and he said "Oh! He didn't call? I will make sure he calls you this time."
well. No. He never called, and
Honolulu General Contractors Provider Name Locked
never called to follow up.
I took my time to meet him. I took time to call him back. Simply put - he wasted my time.

I'm surprised that I'm the first to write a review, and embarrassed that it's taken me this long because I've worked closely with
Honolulu General Contractors Provider Name Locked
and his team on major remodels of 3 different houses over the last 6 years. The scope of work was very broad, but included tearing out and putting in a new kitchen and multiple bathrooms, painting, plumbing, electrical, trim carpentry, etc. As a real estate investor and Realtor for the last 12+ years, I've worked with and talked to a very wide variety of vendors. I find most of them on Angie's List and then forget to write reviews because most of them essentially know what they're doing but are unremarkable, but my years of experience with
Honolulu General Contractors Provider Name Locked
have been 100% positive, and he and his team truly stand out from the competition and deserve recognition.
Honolulu General Contractors Provider Name Locked
and his staff are incredibly gifted craftsman, but his real talent is solving problems. He understands what your goals are and can tell you the best way, the cheapest way, and ultimately the smart way to achieve them. On top of that, while he is "full service" he's not one of the many local contractors who charge an egregious amount for work they're just subbing out to someone else. If he can't do it, he'll tell you he's not interested in it. The pricing is very fair, and he sticks to his quote.
I'm speaking in generalities here because of the breadth of the work, but as someone who looks at a hundred reviews before even calling a vendor, this is the real deal. If you need a painter, a carpenter, a new kitchen, a new master bath, or a whole house remodel you should at least talk to
Honolulu General Contractors Provider Name Locked
as one of your options. He couldn't be nicer, and I believe you'll be very happy with the work, whatever it is.

Having found Carpentry + You in a local
Honolulu General Contractors Provider Name Locked
, I called and got
Honolulu General Contractors Provider Name Locked
, the owner, and requested he come out to give us a quote on adding crown molding to our master bedroom. He came the next morning, bringing samples of the most popular crown molding profiles for use in a single piece crown application. I was impressed by his professionalism and knowledge from the start. He highly recommended we use poplar crown due to its superiority over pine or MDF. Having viewed the profiles, we narrowed it down to double-bead crown, an upgrade over the more common cove crown. This required a special order from the millwork company

gets his molding from. The crown was delivered in less than a week and

started the job immediately upon its arrival. Not only does

was punctual and professional. The two bookshelves came out perfect. He did a great job matching the existing moulding. He cleaned up everything once he was done. Our toddlers actually liked having him around. Very happy with our bookshelves.

Hooshang is an incredibly skilled carpenter. He explained to us clearly and accurately what work he would do and what part he would not do, so we knew from the beginning what we were getting for our money. The work took about 3 days total, and it is beautiful--it looks like it has always been a part of the house, blending seamlessly with the parts of the stairs that were not replaced. When, at the end of the project, there was a small gap between the new first step and a wall, he went back and fixed the gap for me in such a way that it's invisible. When I asked, he also replaced one of the new balusters that had a minor nick in it without blinking an eye. Overall, he was very professional and responsive. I would absolutely recommend him to friends and family, and if I needed stair work done in the future, I would be happy to have him do it.

We had a deadline to meet on some necessary repairs and we needed a contractor who would get the job done.
Honolulu General Contractors Provider Name Locked
was able to complete all requested tasks within a week, both perfectly and professionally. They even had time to paint and trim an additional room for us. Their crew was courteous and respectful of our home and showed up promptly each day that they said they would. The value for the cost of the repairs was very reasonable and the finished work was high quality.
I would highly recommend
Honolulu General Contractors Provider Name Locked
to anyone needing home repairs and would gladly welcome
Honolulu General Contractors Provider Name Locked
and his crew back into our home for future construction needs. Please feel free to contact me if any additional feedback is needed. 6155160870.

had an opening in his schedule the next day. On the phone he asked perceptive questions and quickly understood our priorities: first, make room for the new fridge; second, retain as much storage space as possible; third, make it look as nice as reasonable -- but if it turns out less than perfect (and it was far from perfect to begin with), that will be a good incentive for us to think about the long-overdue full kitchen remodel we really need one of these years.
Honolulu General Contractors Provider Name Locked
showed up as scheduled, with a very well-equipped truck and trailer. He discussed options and details and we agreed on a plan. He was quite familiar with the 1950s construction techniques and materials used in our kitchen. He proceeded to efficiently pull out the old cabinets, keeping them as intact as possible. He then came up with ways to modify everything to fit the new dimensions -- to the extent of disassembling four drawers, trimming their pieces to new sizes, and reassembling.
After a day and a half, everything turned out great -- much better than we had expected when we'd originally been thinking about getting someone to do this job.
At the end,
Honolulu General Contractors Provider Name Locked
started to give us advice about how to sand, caulk and spackle before painting, but we asked him to come back the next day to take care of all that prep for us. He spent a couple of hours doing so, and did a very nice job.

was always professional, smart, calm, knowledgeable, friendly, and happy to discuss options and reasons.

During the installation of our custom kitchen cabinets from CliqStudios, Mr.
Honolulu General Contractors Provider Name Locked
installed a 33" finished upper cabinet, (which was supposed to be free standing over the dishwasher) in line where a 30" cabinet was supposed to be installed. The 30" cabinet had unfinished sides because it was to be installed between two other cabinets. Mr.
Honolulu General Contractors Provider Name Locked
even removed one finished side from the larger cabinet to put it into the space allowed for the 30" cabinet. He had to install a 3" filler between the lower cabinets to push them out to line up with the upper cabinets.
This forced the pantry on this same wall, within an inch from the door frame where there should have been 4 inches of wall space. The smaller 30" cabinet without finished sides, he concealed with a white laminate product he bought and cut to fit. (He told us to paint it, later when we discovered it and questioned him about it.) We didn't notice the difference in material and color until the next morning because we don't have functioning lights in the kitchen yet. we've been using drop lights to work in the kitchen. Mr.
Honolulu General Contractors Provider Name Locked
never mentioned this mistake to us or how he tried to "fix" it. He just let us know it was a bit of a job since we had an older house and things aren't perfectly level or straight in houses like this. He had to build out a corner cabinet for the sink. Our plans included the door frame and front and the adjacent cabinet sides were to come up to the corner door and the carpenter would have to complete the frame and install a floor in the cabinet. Mr.
Honolulu General Contractors Provider Name Locked
mounted cleats on the wall to support the counter top in the corner. It wasn't until the morning after we'd met with Mr.
Honolulu General Contractors Provider Name Locked
and paid him for his work, we discovered the mismatched cabinet in the morning light coming through the kitchen windows.
We were unsuccessful trying to get Mr.
Honolulu General Contractors Provider Name Locked
to return and correct the cabinet lineup. He blamed CliqStudios for labeling the cabinet boxes wrong. My husband and I checked the boxes and politely disagree; you simply can't put a 33" inch cabinet in a 30" box and the box labeled for the 30" cabinet was barely 32", just enough to accommodate packing material. Anyway, wouldn't you open all of the upper cabinets before you even started the installation to determine what goes where? A 30" cabinet with unfinished sides appears considerably smaller than a 33" cabinet with finished sides. How could you possibly mix those up?
Anyway, when he saw the cabinets weren't matching his pencil
Honolulu General Contractors Provider Name Locked
on the wall, he really should have checked the cabinets then. I still can't believe he actually removed a finished side panel from the 33" upper cabinet and hung the 30" unfinished upper cabinet alone on another wall. There were so many opportunities to "discover" his error and correct it before it went any further, but instead, he just kept compensating for it, by adding filler, moving the cabinets beyond the designated space he'd already marked on the walls, even having to purchase a laminate product to cover the unfinished sides of the free standing upper cabinet. I had ordered a larger 33" cabinet to balance that wall and because I had the space to allow for a larger cabinet with more storage.
When we tried to get Mr.
Honolulu General Contractors Provider Name Locked
to return and fix it, he said he didn't want to risk damaging the cabinets and crown moulding by removing and rearranging them and then have to be responsible for them. In his emails, he reminded us that we paid him already and that meant we accepted the job. He said we were selling the home and that it wouldn't make any difference and that no-one would ever know. He told us to "leave it alone". He said he didn't have any time anyway because he had plans to travel with his family and that we should respect that. When I protested and let Mr.
Honolulu General Contractors Provider Name Locked
know that I would be writing a review, he emailed me this message, "don't threaten me."
Well, this isn't a threat, but I plan to write reviews about all of the trades and suppliers we used in Brenham, good bad and otherwise. Isn't that what Angie's List is for? I know Mr.
Honolulu General Contractors Provider Name Locked
said it wouldn't make any difference but it has. Last fall we bought an appliance package for this kitchen and now the refrigerator won't fit. It was to fit a 36" space which has been reduced to 35". It will cost us a minimum of $1479 to replace the refrigerator with a smaller one, plus we'll have to pay a 20% restocking fee to return the original. I'm sure I should have hired another carpenter to swap the cabinets back out, but I was worried about spending more money and whether I'd find anyone else that would be willing to follow Mr.
Honolulu General Contractors Provider Name Locked
's mistakes and try to correct them. We'd already spent $6000 on the kitchen cabinets and another $1175 for their installation. The flooring company and countertop contractors were already scheduled and I didn't know how long it would take to try and fix everything and regroup.
At first I tried to reassure Mr.
Honolulu General Contractors Provider Name Locked
in emails that making a mistake was really not that big a deal, that everyone makes mistakes and I knew he would be able to fix this for us. I was so shocked when he refused. This couldn't possibly be the same man that got such solid reviews from 3 other customers. The fact that he knew he was installing it wrong and just kept going with it made it a big deal. His refusal to correct the error made it a big deal and our financial loss due to the appliance problem is a big deal. This was my husband's family home from the week he was born. His mother lived here until she passed away at age 96. We have been remodeling this home for one entire year and have done so much of the work ourselves. It's a beautiful home and to us this home is a very big deal.
Anyway, in spite of the great references from Mr.
Honolulu General Contractors Provider Name Locked
, we were very disappointed in his work and his lack of professionalism. We would not hire him again nor recommend him for anyone else.

is an expert craftsman. She is exceptional! I didn't have to worry if she was going to show up like some contractors I hired during my complete remodel. She is well organized and listened to all of my concerns and desires regarding the custom mantle she was building. I was very pleased and honored to have had her build the mantle for our home. It looks amazing! The price was good too. You just can't go wrong by hiring her and you will be glad you did.
