This is a difficult review for me. So let me explain. First it was family members that recommended
West Branch Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
to us as we had bought an older home that needed some improvements in the kitchen and adding crown molding in the dining and living rooms and the bedroom. The PLUSES. Our designer
West Branch Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
Brown was frankly....AMAZING! My wife and I told her what we wanted in terms of improvements and not too long after we approved her design drawings and the quote for service.

was very accomadating as over time we asked for changes. She never hesitated to listen to our views and always made us feel like we were in charge. She was prompt answering emails and submitting quality yet price friendly options to fit our budget. The kitchen remodel went off without issue and the woodworking guys were outstanding. I felt they were working like they were on their own homes! You can't beat that. They were like Magicians as they problem-solved issues to achieve the perfect solution. My dissatisfaction concerns the point where the crown molding was going in the rooms. Now I was present when the designer and the project foreman met us and they made exacting measurements of the exact lengths of the molding needed plus the overall linear footage needed. They checked and double-checked and we felt confident that what was needed was going to be ordered. That is where the problem started. It is quite clear at the time this happened they lacked the quality assurance person or process in place to ensure what is ordered is indeed what they get. So not only was the molding that was delivered not in the correct lengths nor was the molding consistently stained in the correct color. Some molding was light and dark in the same color. So the installers assume that what they get delivered to our house is what they have to install. Well they start to install the molding and they start to splice pieces together thinking that is what they were suppose to do. But when they do that they find that the wood is stained different shades (light-dark) so that the spliced segments don't match. That's when I'm told something is wrong. When I call the foreman he tells me he can't check it out until later in the day. I finally tell the installers to stand down and stop where they are. Now the foreman does come by about a hour after calling him and realizes that there is an indeed a problem. What bothered me is that he acknowledges the problems of improper lengths and poor staining of the crown molding.But then he asks me if I can "live with it"! That was easy...I said no. So they then took down all the molding and re-ordered and then installed the correct lengths and stain. So that was done. Now after that mishap...the overall remodeling project turned out FANTASTIC. That's my dilemma.

West Branch Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
...A+. Amazing problem solvers that make you feel they are working for you! Project foreman overseeing the construction...D. Nice guy but asking me if " I can live with it?" That's not right. Again a decent guy but isn't on top of things in my opinion. Probably spread too thin. Quality Control/Assurance. F. Quite clear that no one inspected our materials before bringing them to the job site to ensure correct lengths and stains ordered matched what they received. The subcontractors

uses to do the various specialty work like plumbers and electricians....A+. They are now my go to companies for service. You sure can't beat that! Overall...the final results were fantastic! I just wish we didn't have to go through the issues listed above. So this is where I'm torn in making a recommendation. So I will just say, read through my comments and make your decision. The final outcome was amazing and we are VERY SATISFIED. If they can solve their lack of QA of materials before they reach the customer's home then I will easily recommend

came in and handled the job quickly and thoroughly in a way that surpassed what we could have imagined. WHAT A PRO! And the price was absolutely terrific...less than we'd expected. His professionalism is worth much more. I don't usually write this sort of glowing endorsement but this company is tops. Came in on time and at cost. He even took on a little extra repairs since he was working on the house and that repair of rotting wood was just as good.

In my opinion Mr.
West Branch Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
was deceptive, dishonest and self-serving on our major home remodel ( >5000sqft.). His poor performance & workmanship, deception and lack of attention to detail
West Branch Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
to many thousands of dollars of repair expenses, double charges for line items, up-charges for basic items on the original plans and unnecessary delays in the planned 1 year project. He hired himself an attorney, and abandoned the job-site as soon as he found someone from the county to sign off on an occupancy permit (despite several active CA Building Code violations), and began via his attorney demanding we pay him despite him being undoubtedly aware he owed us money for the many expenses we had incurred via his actions and his failure to supervise and coordinate the trades. They quickly placed a Mechanic’s
West Branch Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
on our home and we remain tangled ~9 months later with an unfinished home, and no one to perform the warrantee work- (eg. Interior doors are literally falling off the hinges)
West Branch Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
was able to get the bulk of the home built but he seems to miss the ‘finish’ that one expects even with a track home. Our expensive new flooring system and newly framed walls are sloped, uneven, crooked, and creaky; exterior doors do not seal-- in that bright daylight can be seen through 3/3 of the closed exterior doors (including the entry door), exterior painting is incomplete, no gutter downspouts on the home, stucco has been placed directly against the wooden eves and corbels with no flexible caulking in between, the new $70K windows no longer have the manufacturer’s warrantee because the exterior horizontal window sills were drilled to place alarm sensors etc. etc.
Mr.
West Branch Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
may have an artistic eye for aesthetics but unfortunately he only sees the changes that need to be implemented after something has been physically constructed- this leads to paying someone to tear down something you just paid them to construct and then you have the additional materials.
Based on our long and expensive lesson, I would advise not getting involved in any project with Mr.
West Branch Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
unless money and time are limitless in your world.

In terms of the workmanship, cleanliness, knowledge and craftsmanship of Pat, his subs and his assigned staff, I could not be happier. The work is first rate and I have not even one complaint. My wife and I are in total agreement on this and we have recommended Pat to our friends. However, Pat is not adept at managing client expectations. Construction work is a profession that is potholed with dependencies from a variety of sources. Among them are the weather, suppliers, carpenters, ever changing products and requirements to mention a few. Plus human errors and just plain bad luck. This project was supposed to start on Monday
West Branch Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
14 of this year. As late as
West Branch Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
11 Pat assured me that it was likely to start on time and be done in a week or so. On Monday morning I awoke to an email sent late on Sunday evening that he was delayed on another project and he could not start until later in the week. It was downhill for a while from there. The shower stall was damaged in shipping, the replacement was wrong, etc so a month was lost getting a good set of materials. Pat and his guys did as much prep work as possible while the stall issues was resolved BUT it was not an easy task getting current status on what was happening.
In the end my wife and I are very pleased with the final product and the price was good and the additional cost was very fair

West Branch Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
walked us through every step of the process. When he was not available his wife/office manager never failed to promptly reply to every email. Our house was built with minimal delays. I found
West Branch Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
to be honest and easy to communicate with. He met with us for our frequent request to do a "walk through" of the home as it was being renovated. All of the subcontractors used by

Everything was smooth and timely. Cost a little high but commensurate with the quality. There was some small miss-communication that I was partially responsible for. I would suggest that you get sketches of any project that has room for misinterpretation. In any event, Zandy went out of his way to make everything right, and he did. That is what you really want.. Things often go wrong and its how a guy responds that counts.

came out and discussed our project with us, took photos and promised to get us a quote in a couple of weeks. After 6 weeks, I called the office and asked the status.
West Branch Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
told me the quote was done, but needed review and he would have it to me in a couple of days. It is now the end of August and I have had no contact from them at all. Based on this poor responsiveness at the quote stage, I would not recommend this contractor.

I was stupid when I signed a contract with him and gave him a check for $11,500.00 which he cashed the same day. I did not do my homework; this was purely a scam job. He has not provided the licensing that is required and obtaining permits. I found out too late, and discovered he was NOT a license contractor for anything. AVOID HIM AND HIS COMPANY FOR ANY WORK YOU NEED DONE. I am going to proceed with any available legal advice for, hopefully some type of refund. I have beat myself up every minute since he entered our home! STAY AWAY FOR HIM AND HIS COMPANY.

AJ was very responsive, punctual and polite; he did good work on most of the smaller jobs, as well as building the shed ramp, which looks great. However, I was unhappy with some items; initially the towel rack wasn't level and I had to have him adjust it. He came back two more times at my request because not all house keys worked in the rekeyed lock. The new exterior door is the worst problem; the threshold doesn't sit flush on the cement like the original, the caulking job is messy and bare wood is visible which wasn't primed or painted, and about 1/2 inch of bare wood is visible above the lock plate where it was chiseled out when AJ attempted to install it the first time at the wrong height. All nails and screws in the door are plainly visible, although countersunk--I spackled over them myself. When I expressed my concern about the threshold, AJ inserted clear caulking underneath which did improve the looks somewhat. All in all, somethings he did were fine, others were definitely subpar quality.

and his crew did an absolute fantastic job on my remodel. There were a few issues that needed to be addressed involving this remodel and the guys did a remarkable job taking care of them all. I was very picky in what I wanted,and they were just as picky. The attention to detail was what I expected and that is exactly what I got, I could not be happier with the work these guys did. If you are looking for a contractor that is friendly, professional, thorough and detail oriented, then
West Branch Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
and his guys at Revive are what you are looking for. I have a couple more projects to do in future and they will be the first call I make.
