Recent Review: In late 2008, my wife and I purchased a 1950 fixer home that needed a lot of work in the kitchen. We'd had a pleasant experience consulting with Ramon of Builder Bee Construction on a previous project, so we decided to call him again. From day one until the very end of the project, Ramon was absolutely great to work with. He came out for a free estimate, and listened very carefully to everything we wanted to accomplish on the project. At that time our plans for the kitchen were not very well defined, as we were unsure of the cost of a full remodel. Ramon helped us prioritize the many aspects of the project, and gave us enough information to decide on the best approach. In the end, his price was so reasonable compared to other contractors; we ended up opting for a full remodel. As others have noted, there are no games or hidden costs with Builder Bee. Ramon will work with you to arrive at the exact outcome you want, while ensuring that you understand fully what will be involved and making recommendations as needed along the way. As is often the case with an older home such as ours, there were a couple of unexpected issues, but Ramon handled them very well, communicating clearly and in advance the additional work that was needed, how much it would cost, and what options were available. Any additional work was always fully documented with addendum's to the original contract, and the cost was accurately stated. Living in a house while a major project like this is going on is always challenging, but Ramon and his crew were so courteous, professional and trustworthy, this month long project ended up being much easier to live with than we anticipated. About mid-way through the project, we threw Ramon a bit of a curve-ball by asking him to replace the floor of the kitchen with new tile, which we had originally planned to do ourselves. Ramon was happy to do that for us as well, and handled the additional work perfectly, even working through the holidays to get it done on time. Knowing that I had an interest in doing some tile work myself later on, Ramon even offered to teach me how to do the job as he worked. The experience was very educational, and even fun. Ramon was also very patient and helpful as we made the many design choices that came up along the way. We had particular trouble deciding what style of granite countertops we wanted. Ramon accompanied us on two occasions to granite showrooms to show us what options existed and help us come to a decision. When we finally did make a choice, it was one that was not available, but Ramon managed to find us the exact equivalent somewhere else, and at no additional charge. Now that the project is complete, we have an absolutely beautiful new kitchen that is exactly what we'd envisioned, and we couldn't be more satisfied. There are many more projects in the future of this house, and we will definitely be calling Builder Bee Construction again when the time comes. Thanks Ramon!
