"We were very impressed with
and the work provided. We especially appreciated that
was on site everyday, even the days when only sub-contractors" were at our home to do work,
was here to introduce them and make sure all the details were correct. He didn't hesitate to ask if things were unclear or as questions came up, which ensured we were in the loop and understood the options and alternatives. Communication was prompt, so that we could respond to unexpected questions quickly. The project took 6 weeks to complete, we were provided with a schedule that was followed closely - this allowed us to know what was going on and when in advance. It also gave us a good idea of when we needed to have finishes and materials selected. The project stayed on schedule which we really appreciated! All the workers we interacted with, especially
and
, were professional, courteous, and unobtrusive. And very tidy. The construction area was left cleaned up at the end of the day and the living areas of our home were protected and stayed clean during the construction. They even took the time to make sure our furnace fan was off during especially dusty work to ensure the dust did not spread to the rest of the house.
was honest, straightforward, and meticulous with the costs as well. When unexpected issues came up, they were communicated to us, along with cost estimates for the options, which helped us make informed decisions. We think the finished product is of a high quality and was done with an eye for detail.
and
did much of the work themselves.
was also willing to work with us to let us do them ourselves to fit the work into our budget - we did all the painting and kitchenette cabinet install ourselves and the windows of time available to complete the work was clearly communicated in advance so that we were able to plan ahead.

" remodeled our kitchen about 3 months ago . We first met with Bill who has a great experinece in construction and cabinet design . We described him our needs and the deram kitchen we wanted . He was able to create a very functional and elegant design within couple day . We went to their showroom for design review and we decided to hire them based on the design was proposed . We were scared of the construction at first since we have three kids and it is hard for our family to stay without a kitchen .Renovation was pain free .
handled everyrthing perfectly .It took three weeks from start to finish and wewere always updated about the construction in daily bases . We love our new kitchen and We appreacite
team for great work they did .

"My husband and I hired
's Construction at a big premium ( 31% overhead and state taxes on time, materials, subcontractors and sales taxes, as well as $85/hour" for the supervisor who poorly orchestrated the job) for efficient, quality work that was promised and subsequently not delivered.
's Construction not only failed to provide the commitment to quality service, but they demonstrated substandard and negligent work as follows: 1) Disregard for our time and money/Incompetency:
's unleashed a brand new employee who had previously been a painter to install a heavy double-wide barn door between the foyer and the office in a high quality home. This job was at minimum an experienced two-person job. The carpenter admitted to me that he had never installed such a barn door. He took twice as much time to complete the work, wasted time while on the job, standing there thinking what he would do next, running back and forth to the hardware store to get screws, paint, and other odds and ends, as well as taking long lunch hours, while arriving late and leaving early. He was abandoned by his company, without apparent supervision. 2) Poor planning: The doorway was to be prepared during a 2 week period and the "the door was to be completely ready to hang when it arrived a week or two later." Two unfinished doors arrived, and while I was at work, the carpenter, proceded unbeknownst to me, to sand and drill the doors in our garage, leaving fine dust and shavings all over the garage still filled with personal items/photos/clothes/electric piano etc. The doors were attached, then hung on site, and days later the painter arrived to paint the doors. The painter refuted painting on site, and the doors had to be removed. In moving the door in and out, the men dinged several areas on the ceilings and entry door and jam. ~~The project was supposed to be completed by May 25th, but did not get completed until June 25th.
's also installed a pre-hung hollow-core door, then needed to take it out and order a new solid core door as was originally specified, and they charged us for the time to correct this mistake, amongst several other mistakes. ~~
cut corners for repairs of a beautiful ceiling in the office, tried to paint it themselves with the incorrect paint, leaving larges scabs on the ceiling and around door jams. I demanded that painters come repair the poor workmanship, and they said that they would have to repaint the entire ceiling. The door also had defects, and the painters said that this repair could only be achieved by repainting the entire door, once again at a time delay and further removal of the door. The painters professionally acknowledged the botched paint repair by
's. 3) Employees and the supervisor scrambled and reacted to problems. 4) We were billed for work caused by egregious mistakes. 5) Obfuscating invoices, such that even the supervisor couldn't explain them. 6) When asked for accountability and transparency on invoices, the accountant only sent a re-worked statement that was even more confusing. They suggested that I was accusing them of cheating, when I only wanted to understand how they arrived at their numbers. 7)
's initially charged me for materials (as well as overhead and taxes upon taxes) not delivered nor paid for by them----eg. door hardware, a Honey Bucket. 8) Door still has obvious paint defects and does not function/glide without clicks and catches. The handles were hung with a 4 inch discrepancy, not to specification. 9)
's failed to recognize as well as to inform us of the need for a permit --- Per Seattle Department of Planning and Development---- "It sounds as if a permit would be required for this project and I would suggest reading our Tip 316 for a possible Subject to Field Inspection (STFI) permit. Wiring would require a separate electrical permit. Either the contractor or the property owner may request a permit. Usually this is decided between the two parties." 10)
's threatened us with a
on our property if we don't pay in full the inflated charges. They subsequently negotiated the balance due (after 50% down) but it was not nearly sufficient, after acknowledging some of their mistakes, and with one day to go said we pay or they would place a
on our property. 11
's threatened us with a defamation lawsuit if we pursued review and resolution with Angie's List, the Better Business Bureau or other review sites. 12 Our experience was similar to a contemporary (September 2014) Yelp review and other prior reviews on Yelp.

I’ve tried to keep this short… if interested, please feel free to contact me for more details of our harrowing experience.
In April 2014, we hired in good faith,
Utica Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
as our Architect to do the design (and build) for some additions and layout changes to our single family residence. We also communicated to
Utica Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
that we want to have the work done in a timely manner before the winter due to our infant son's fragile health; he understood and agreed.
Its October 2014 now, and looking back, in our experience,
Utica Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
turned out to be more of a slippery salesman than an architect. He was also aggressive/overbearing, and on multiple occasions made us feel like he was doing us a favor by working on the project.
Utica Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
gave us an initial estimate of $150K for the construction, but then kept increasing this disproportionately at every opportunity. When I questioned some of the increases, he would start his slippery act and say that he’s not sure why, and that his brother would give the final quote at the end of the process. So, instead of pushing him harder or canceling the contract, we thought that we should just wait to talk to his brother. We also rationalized that his reasonably good "B" cost rating on Angie's List indicated that his rates would be reasonable/competitive. We were so wrong! The final construction quote his brother
Utica Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
gave us was an incredible $374K+!! This was even higher than his increasing estimates, and also more than double of what other contractors have bid now.
We would have ignored all this and moved on, but what finally hurt us the most was that the "Design Contract" he had us sign had a fine print clause stating that its for a "Conceptual Design". We were novices, so we asked him what all the jargon meant, and trusted his explanation that he would be our architect, do the design, and get us past city planning approvals, which he did. However, he never revealed that if we chose to not sign up with them for the construction, that we would need to hire another architect to complete the architectural work! If he had told us, we would have shown him the door... no time and budget conscious homeowner would agree to find and pay for an architect twice! Looking at their contract now, I can clearly see how unfairly its been worded to try to protect their business, and not their customers.
In our last meeting at his office…
Utica Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
LIED and made me visit in person, saying he could not email me the CAD file since it was too large. It was just his ploy to have me first sign a document stating that our contract was complete, as a pre-condition to handing me the CD. Due to our situation I didn’t want any further delays, so I signed it, and then asked him if he would be willing to help us with any architectural questions or work, if any arose? Instead of agreeing to stand behind his work, he plainly refused saying that contractually his work is done. I tried to explain that we had hired him as our architect, but he refused to listen. I started to leave, and politely mentioned that I would post a truthful and accurate review on Angie's List. He then RUDELY and LOUDLY attacked me threatening that if I did, he would
Utica Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
me! He pulled out our contract, and pointed to me where he had me sign months ago, stating that "By signing this agreement the Owners agree not to post, either directly or through a third party, reviews about Craftsmen’s Guild Inc. on any publication, electronic or otherwise (including but not limited to Yelp, Angie's List, BBB, Board of Licensed Contractors), without first obtaining written consent from Craftsmen’s Guild Inc.". I walked out of their office feeling cheated, insulted and almost in tears on how badly I had been treated.
The next day (9/9/2014), the State of California enacted a law (Section 1670.8 of the Civil Code) making such non-disparagement clauses (anti-review) in contracts illegal, and also making it unlawful to threaten or seek to enforce any provision made unlawful under this section. The same day Craftsmen’s Guild emailed me a letter threatening that their attorney has advised them that if I post a negative review, they would
Utica Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
me. Their attorney should have known that by making this threat, they were on the wrong side of the law!!
I can only conclude that this is how this business has artificially maintained a high rating on Angie's List... by threatening to
Utica Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
clients who they try to gouge and treat badly! Beware of the Craftymen!!

We hired the company to remove an old ramp that the prior owner installed for a handicap relative and replace it with stairs with a small landing at that door. We also hired them to do exterior painting, both of the front door and all door trim around the house. The crew that came to look at the work needed and provide the estimate was amazing - on-time, professional, courteous. We were very pleased and looked forward to working with the company. We did not realize that none of them would be on-site for the work. Unfortunately, not all of the men they sent were on-time, professional, and courteous. To start with the good, the gentleman who removed the ramp and installed the stairs was terrific. He was on-time every day and communicated as needed, but without being a bother at all. Though we offered water to drink and the use of our restroom, he declined and went off-site for lunch and restroom breaks. He was hard working, showed up on time, and worked full days until the work was complete. The work was excellent. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said of the painter. He showed up late on the first day and was unprepared. He initially did not plan to do any preparation of the wood trim and was just going to start painting, without any scraping of the current paint (including where there was chips) or removal of items such as doorbells. When he left to get additional materials for the prep work, we removed those items ourselves to try to reduce further delay in the work. When he came back, his progress was very slow. In addition, he left early. As a result, by the end of the first day, little progress had been made. He arrived mid-morning on the second day and, again, made little progress. He was unable to remove the doorknob and peep hole on the front door, which we had to do ourselves. He took frequent breaks, using the restroom multiple times each hour. The paint job also was unsatisfactory. He left mid-afternoon. The next morning, we complained about some of the work and his hours when he arrived, at which point he became rude. We called and asked the company to send a replacement painter, which they did. It took a couple of days to finish the painting. Unfortunately, some of the paint is already chipping, and it appears we will need to find someone else to repaint again soon. We were very dissatisfied with this experience and the response of the company, which attributed this problem to personality differences when we asked for the replacement.

External support beam and post had dry rot from over the years, as well as the end of one of the distal beam rafters. This was a job, in my opinion, only for the right company, and
Utica Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
was the right company. I had done my research to make selection of
Utica Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
from several resources. It carries the correct licensing/insurances/bonds, and Mr.
Utica Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
has a sterling reputation for customer satisfaction. I was happy to wait for availability to fit my project into the schedule. Mr.
Utica Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
kept me informed as to when my project was estimated to go forward. When the day came near, Mr.
Utica Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
's workers contacted me to confirm project/date/time; on the day of, kept me apprised as to arrival time; and throughout the duration of the project were punctual, pleasant, knowledgeable, skillful, hard-working, and professional. I had expected the work to take several days, but they were finished in two. The roof had to be shored up while the beam/post were removed. What a hard job, removing/replacing that beam! Additionally, a cap or sleeve was installed on the end of the beam and caulked in place to prevent exposure to the elements. The end result is that the beam and post look better than they did when the house was new. One cannot notice that the end of the distal beam rafter has been repaired because it is so well done. I have already shown three of my neighbors my new beam/post and passed along Mr.
Utica Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
's contact information. I will call upon the services of
Utica Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
when my next project comes along.

After reading the positive reviews on Angie's List, I called the contractor to get an estimate for my work. I have a master bathroom that has been completely gutted (down to the studs) and needs drywall (including a ceiling) hung, a shower framed out, and possibly floor and wall tile laid also. I described the project in detail over the phone. When
Utica Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
came over, he spent only a few minutes looking at the bathroom and did not ask very many questions. I got the impression he wasn't very interested in doing the job but thought surely he wouldn't have wasted his time and mine in coming over if he knew he didn't want to do a project like this. A few days later, I got a voicemail from him simply stating that for a small project like mine, I should call this materials supplier who might have a list of contractors that would be interested in doing the work, and have a nice day. I thought this was extremely rude and wasn't quite sure why he had gone to the trouble of even scheduling an appointment for an estimate when he clearly had better things to do. I had been told by a couple of other contractors that they were very busy with some other large projects, and if I still wanted them to quote me a bid it might be a little while. This kind of honesty would have been appreciated from
Utica Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
, especially since I said I had already described the project in detail over the phone so I am not sure what the surprise was... Then he waited a few days only to tell me I should call a materials supplier (not even a contractor!) who may have time to deal with my piddly job. Frustrating and a waste of time.

Owner is accomplished finish carpenter and has quality subs on tap for any services needed. On time, on budget and helped with some complex design changes, which turned out extremely well. Rebuilt walls of cabinets, kitchen cupboards and outside porch/decks/columns. House was 1913 craftsman and helped us prepare for highly successful sale.
We have known owner for 7+ years and his work ethic, integrity and knowledge is excellent for any/all building needs.
