I cannot say enough positive things about Simons Construction, Ed and Don. I was in a traumatic situation where my home had been partially destroyed, and I was relocated with my family during this time. SCI was incredibly professional, and the communication was superb. The plans and estimates were identical to the final bills - there were zero negative surprises, and plenty of wonderful moments along the way. I had been dealing with another contractor prior to SCI, who had done a terrible job and eroded my faith in contractors. Don and Ed restored not only my home (and made it a showcase house!) but also restored my faith in humanity during one of the most turbulent and difficult times of my life. Communication: Every step of the way, Don asked for my input, explained processes and approaches clearly, and treated me with respect. As a single mom, I appreciate their clarity and willingness to work with me as I was learning about construction, and I always felt they explained things in a respectful tone, and they valued my opinion and ideas. This was a terrific partnership due in a large part to their excellent written and verbal communication. Workmanship: I have been living with my new kitchen for over a year, and there is absolutely nothing I would have "redone" or changed in any way. The walls are perfect, the cupboards are stunning, and the flooring is exactly the way I wanted it. This is the first major project I've had where I have literally no regrets or "buyers remorse" about the work. I walk into the house and smile! Project management: Because I manage projects in my work, I have an appreciation for when this is done well, and SCI moved the project along quickly and without any major hiccups. Workers were there when they said they would be there, and there were no problems with scheduling or dependencies. Even the permit process went well because the city was familiar with SCI and I could see the trust that was there. Price: As I stated above, there were no surprises with the cost of any of the work. I didn't have any idea what it would cost (as this was entirely unplanned) but the estimates matched the invoices so I was able to work with insurance with no problems. Respect: This is a big one for me. I felt at all times that the workers respected my home, my schedule, my opinions and feelings, and even my emotional state, which at times was probably a bit of a challenge for them. SCI workers are incredibly professional and trustworthy! I am taking a rest before my next big project, but sometime in the next year I will call on SCI again for more work, and I am thrilled to give them the highest recommendation possible. This is a terrific company, and they are my contractors for life!
