    Rick O's Construction & Remodeling
    As with all previous projects I hired him for, the work was performed to the highest standards, at competitive pricing, on time with no disruptions. Previous projects included residing the entire house, rebuilding a patio roof, interior painting, etc. I would absolutely hire him for any project.

    Mendiola Remodeling & Construction LLC
    This guys are experienced, hard working professionals! They removed our old carpet and vinyl flooring, leveled the floor, and installed new tile and baseboards throughout the house! They also removed a wall to expand our dining room and painted the house! They were always on time and worked safely and professionally and left the job site neat and clean each day. Everyone was extremely courteous and considerate which provided minimal disruption to our day to day activities. I highly recommend Mendiola Remodeling

    FAIR CONTRACTORS INC
    The Good: The only thing i can say i am truly happy with is the wooden flooring, which was completely outsourced to a third party. They did have to relay one of the bedrooms as it was not properly sealed with moisture barrier the first time (despite me telling them to do it), however in fairness to them they did replace the entire room 10 months later under warranty. In fairness to the company they did come recommended by a friend. The owner seems like a reasonable person. The Bad: The crew i had was not great. The lead guy was NEVER at the house and all i ever got was excuses from the company as to why. I later found out he did not even work for Fair contractors, but had his own business which was sub contracted to do the job. Any time i would complain i would get the response " I don't work for fair contractors you need to call the office"!!! The quality of the work was not great. There are simply to many items to list, but among them: - Paint job was terrible. They used flat paint despite me asking for and them quoting eggshell finish (i only found this out a few months after when i went to try remove a mark from the wall). As a result my house needs repainted in the high traffic areas after 18months. I did bring this to their attention after but was ignored. The kitchen counter tops are a complete state and the real low point given the cost of them. The joins are very obvious and are now a complete eye sore in the kitchen. I have since had to fix a number of electrical issue left over by them. My dishwasher power cord for example was attached to the switch with electrical tape holding together the conductors which were on the floor under the unit!! Absolutely no excuse for that. Complete cowboy job. The kitchen cabinets are all cracked up and are not square in places. In summary they are not the worst outfit I have ever come across, but i personally had a really terrible experience with them. I think its probably down to which crew you get.

    M & M Roofing Co Inc
    M&M rep responded quickly to my call. He was very thorough and professional. I liked the proposal and the price, so I signed him up. Two very good crews came out over two days...one attacked the woodwork and the other was the roofing team. Both knew their stuff and knocked out the work in good order. All caulked and cleaned up. Couldn't be happier.

    Very well. Gary showed up slightly ahead of schedule and proceeded with this assortment of small jobs. I was very impressed with both the speed and the quality of his work. Except for the A/C job, these were all small things I would have done myself a few years ago, but I could not have done them nearly as fast or as well. I did think the prices were a little high, but he is in high demand because of the quality of his work. Gary is about as down-to-earth and friendly as could be, and we will definitely call on him again.

    Precision Roof Crafters, Inc.
    They were very professional, reasonable, 'Spot On' on their estimation of the cost of the needed repairs. Their carpenter, 'Abel', is a perfectionist as were the painters. They stood behind me when my insurance company was trying to cheat me for 18 months. They do it right because they want to be called the next time repairs are needed as well.. Doug Ottosen

    THE PERALTAS Remodeling & Services INC.
    The scope of the work affected every area of our 2,300 sqft single story house. For many years the house had suffered from neglected upkeep/deferred maintenance. I had hand-drawn, detailed plans and a computer model of the "before" and "after". My plans were detailed. All work was to be performed under the condition that at least one bedroom and one bath was functional at any time. Sammy Peralta visited with me twice to review and discuss options, costs and limitations. His friendly, polite demeanor, and his "can do"/"we will make it work" attitude encouraged me to explain to him even some of my more daring visions. After we came to an initial agreement, he introduced me to Nelson Franco, his project manager. We did a walk-through to confirm that things could be done as planned. I liked Nelson: he was a good listener. His observations and his answers to my questions showed that he was clearly very experienced. My first impressions of both, Sammy and Nelson, proved right: they are friendly, polite and cheerful, seasoned professionals, motivated and eager to please. They are experienced remodelers: they did not just delegate to their crew, but they were hands-on when necessary, and definitely not afraid to get dirty at critical moments during the project. Sammy and Nelson brought in their core crew for initial demolition: all very polite and friendly. The scope of demolition was extensive, and so was dirt and dust and debris. But at the end of each workday the crew picked up and removed the debris, and they swept the floors to keep things safe and reasonably orderly and clean. For all work requiring permits, they had their network of licensed professionals who worked swiftly at all critical moments and diligently planned their work to keep my discomfort at the absolute minimum: the plumber replaced all the pipes in the attic and the open walls in such a way that I was really only one day without water at all (plus one night without warm water). The electrician organized his work in the same manner when we switched from the overhead line to the underground supply: All work was prepared in a way that Centerpoint could disconnect one morning and reconnect in the late afternoon of that same day. Beautiful, custom-fitted cabinetry was created for both bathrooms on-site by Julio, a true expert-craftsman. They were finished and painted to perfection by Nelson's crew once all the tile work around them was completed. Both bathrooms would have porcelain tiles - not only on the floors and around the tub, but also on all the walls up to the ceiling. Oscar, the tile specialist, did an excellent job! He even offered me to set some of his time aside to go with me and choose the grout colors that would best complement the tiles! He was visibly enthusiastic and proud of his work! The tiling of the walls required also a great deal of coordination of Oscar's work with both, the plumbers and the electricians. Special care was necessary in the guest bathroom, where a recessed mirror cabinet with integrated dimmer lights was to be installed. The tiles had to be cut very carefully to allow for proper, level fitting of all switches and fixtures. Creativity was needed to build a wall of ship lap to transform the appearance of our entry hallway. Nelson worked closely with his crew to solve the problems with the installation of flooring material on a vertical wall. The result was stunning (see photos). The complexity and reach of the project required a lot of communication and at times adjustments, creativity and improvisation. A few things that appeared to be straight forward turned out to be challenge and required me to compromise. But Sammy and Nelson had prepared me for this to happen; and their experience found often acceptable and surprisingly good looking workarounds. Not all went smooth and exactly as planned...There was the original estimate of a time frame: Sammy initially thought it might take up to 14 weeks, but it ended up being more like 21 weeks. The number of permits requiring clearance by City inspectors at various stages of the project put progress on halt at times. Some fixtures and materials were special order and did not arrive as scheduled. Worse: the plumber had to install and remove and exchange the special valve kit for the Master bath tub fixture twice! The third time only we received one that would work properly. There were a few communication mix-ups and work site bottlenecks, when carpenters, plumbers and electricians had to do successive jobs in the same small work space. Then there were the Christmas and New Years Holidays. And then there were the unforeseen incidents that come when working large-scale on an older house: the removal of one wall required a lot more structural work in the ceiling than we all expected. Two adjacent walls turned out not to be in the same level once the separation wall was removed! Nelson's fix: build a facade wall that makes the problem disappear! Failing old drain lines caused water back-ups twice in the course of the rebuilding of the two bathrooms and required mop-ups and eventual drain line replacements. The installation of a structural ceiling joist required moving the AC emergency drain pan and drain line. I had to call my AC service company to put everything back in order. The new gas range needed not only the gas line but also an electrical line for the ignition, and the 220volt line from my old stove top was not appropriate for that purpose. So a new 110volt powerline and plug had to be installed. And then, of course there are the little extras and opportunities to improve or replace things I had not initially considered but made perfect sense as the interior was gutted in many places: a new and larger air return opening and grill. A new thermostat that allows me to control the temperature in my house with my smartphone from anywhere. A new and better Attic door. A new and better Attic light with a new and better switch at a new and better place. New exterior lighting. Accoustic insulation before closing up the open bedroom walls...all done by Sammy and Nelson at a very good price, but it all added to the project's time, of course. But then again, you cannot be in a hurry when you decide to do all that to your house in a single big effort. The Peraltas are a general remodeling company in the true sense of the word. The entire crew is very good with paint, sheet rock and carpentry. Interior or exterior: there is almost nothing they do not offer to do. Everyone is respectful, friendly and polite. There is never a lack of honest good wilI, and a sincere eagerness to please. Take the time and ask the questions to understand their system of "allowances" for fixtures and materials. Sammy prefers you being involved in the choices rather than recommending anything outright. So do some homework. The Peraltas transformed my house into a place I like to live in. Into a place I like to show my friends and neighbors. I believe that the Peraltas gave me a lot of value for the price I paid. I am already making a list of other projects to call Sammy about. But if I had to pick the single one thing the Peraltas are absolutely amazing at, I would say it is the way they do bathrooms! It has been three months since they finished my house, but I just can't help smiling whenever I enter one of my new bathrooms. Sammy and Nelson transformed my visions into palpable reality. They understood what I wanted, and they were capable of making it happen.

    THE PERALTAS Remodeling & Services INC.
    I competitively bid the work amongst 3 highly-rated Angie's List contractors. Peraltas was the low bidder and performed very well. Their tile man, Manuel, is especially talented. Peraltas is worth hiring just get the services of this one person! They remodeled two bathrooms which included a new countertop, new tile floor, new functional window in shower, converting an old shower to a closet, converting a large tub area to a walk-in shower with a linear drain in the master, as well as extending a wall and incorporating 2 new doors to a toilet room and the closet. In the guest bath they removed a bath tub and converted into a shower with linear drain, added new countertop, new mirror, faucet and electrical. In the laundry they added a new countertop. They are especially good at laying tile and crafting soap niches (boxes) in the shower as well as exterior brick work which was necessary with the new window. I elected to use my own plumbing company (Pickett Plumbing) for the most complex parts of the plumbing work and another company (Euro Glass) to construct the frameless showers. I would gladly employ Peraltas again!

    Distinguished Designs
    They did a great job. Even when the little things came up during the job, they took it in stride and were quick to let me know and explain. Eric and his crew are incredibly professional. These are the people you want in your house.

    Ramirez Carpentry of Houston
    My wife and I were very pleased with the work and craftsmanship displayed from Ramirez Carpentry. Wilfrido went above and beyond to complete the work in a timely manner even as the job grew in scope based on unexpected issues that were encountered once the work was started. Not only was his carpentry work excellent, but he assisted in recommending and arranging for an additional contractor to assist with removing and replacing sheetrock, stud replacement and painting and he made sure he was there to help coordinate the work. I would highly recommend Wilfrido for any carpentry related projects.
