My husband and I had a great experience with Rick and the ENTIRE Carbon Construction crew! We highly recommend them and their work. After DIY-ing a number of projects in an 1890's farmhouse, we reached out to a few local contractors, seeking some professional, experienced help with a number of major structural changes in the back of the house: gutting a kitchen, bathroom, and laundry room to create a spacious eat-in farmhouse kitchen with large picture windows and an 8 ft. door wall. We heard back from Rick quickly. Since we were investing a lot in materials (new windows, a door wall, siding, etc.), we were eager to explore what we could do in order to keep the project on budget, including doing the demo and finishing work ourselves. Rick was happy to discuss these options with us, and he laid out various options in a clear, detailed contract. This made it easy to proceed with confidence. What we most appreciated about working with Carbon is the fact that Rick is a straight-shooter. He's personable, communicative and honest, and he's assembled a team of loyal, talented builders over the years. Rick was easily reachable by phone or text. In his absence, we found his crew to be dependable, communicative, and thorough -- often going above and beyond to advise of things that, as first-time renovators, we would need to think about for the future: leveling the floor, advising us whether certain walls were load-bearing, installing siding to accommodate a future deck, etc. Were we ever grateful for their experience and advice! All in all, we'd hire Carbon Construction again in a heartbeat. Great family, great company!
