Recent Review: Every once in a while, things just go right. We bought a lovely, but outdated 1920’s home in November of 2015. We were tackling a number of projects at the same time, but our experience with Goran was a bright spot in a dreary wasteland of fighting with plumbers, painters, and electricians. Goran came out for the initial consultation in the evening, at our convenience. We met with a lot of companies with really impressive websites, and project binders, and enormous price tags. Goran’s price was VERY competitive, but, honestly, we choose him because we just liked talking with him the most. He was fantastic to work with. There were a couple of times along the way when we made bad calls, or held the process up, or changed our minds, or added an extra project. Every time, he helped up clean up a mess we had made, adjusted his schedule, modified the plans, and accommodated our crazy schemes, without any sign of irritation. For example, we tried to save some money by having an old family friend do the initial demo work. Family friend, maybe. Expert demo guy? Turns out, not so much. This guy missed a lot of stuff, but completely removed our precious laundry chute! Goran very politely came in, rebuilt our laundry chute, and cleaned things up. After that, we often looked to Goran for advice. While he would have suggestions (usually good ones we should have listened to!) he always made it clear that the final decision was ours. Goran was incredibly responsive – available to us whenever we had questions. Often, we would text at night, or he would pop over to check something on Saturday. He was always here when he said he would be, and kept us apprised of the schedule we were on. But as pleasant as it was to work with Goran, what was most amazing about him is the quality of his work. Every step of the way, he went above and beyond what we expected. He worked hard to keep construction dust out of the rest of the house, and debris under control. He painted the back stairs, just because you could see them from the kitchen. He handcrafted wood molding to match the new cabinets, which he extended throughout the whole space. He rebuilt a doorway, handcrafting trim that matched the 100 year old trim in the rest of the house. He is an absolutely amazing craftsman, and I am totally in awe of his carpentry skills. Goran may not have a fancy website, but trust me – he’s a once in a lifetime kind of contractor, and you would be incredible lucky to work with him.
