  • Recently purchased a home in Denver. During the inspection process, it was discovered that the foundation needed to be braced and reinforced due to force from over saturated ground water and soil. A structural engineer assessed the project and recommended ASC Construction to complete the work. ASC Construction provided a quote and estimate of time for the job, and the job was agreed upon. As part of the home sale, the previous owner negotiated a lease back to occupy the home through the end of May. It was agreed between the tenant and myself that work would begin on the repairs while the tenant was occupying the home, with the understanding that job would be completed in less than 4 days, with minimal disruption to the tenant and living areas (as the work was being performed in the basement/sub-area of the home - but accessed the living areas). 2 days after work began, while out of the country, I received a call from my Real Estate agent that the police had been called to the home, as the tenant was concerned for his personal safety due to the behavior and actions of Mr. R Charles Crowley. In conversation with my Real Estate agent it was shared that Mr. Crowley had brought his 2 dogs with him to the home (never agreed upon, or discussed before hand that this would be a possibility), and had left the site at or around 2pm in the afternoon, leaving the dogs in the backyard unattended, and roaming the yard. As the tenant of the home had his dog living with him (which was previously disclosed to us, and agreed upon), he was concerned for his dog's safety if he let it out in the yard. Nearly 7 hours later that same day, Mr. Crowley had not returned to collect his dogs, secure the work site, or notified me as the owner, or the tenant, of his where being. Due to this, the tenant contacted the local police department for advice on caring for the dogs. The police were dispatched to the home, along with animal control, and at that same time, Mr. Crowley returned to the home. Upon contacting the police, it was apparent that Mr. Crowley was intoxicated to the point that he was unable to operate a motor vehicle, care for his dogs, or secure the work site. He was arrested on suspicion of Driving While Intoxicated, his dogs were impounded by animal control, and he was taken to hospital for detoxification. After this incident, the tenant, understandably, was fearful for his personal safety, the safety of his dog, and the safety of the home. The tenant requested that Mr. Crowley be banned from the property until the end of the lease term, and that no work would take place. Understanding the concern, and feeling the same way if in that position, I agreed that no work would be done until the tenant moved out. Over the next 2+ weeks, Mr. Crowley made no attempt to contact me as the owner to explain the situation, offered no apology, and seemingly ignored the request to not access the job site, as it was shared with me he did in fact return to the site after being told not to earlier. After the tenant moved out, and nearly 3 weeks after the original start date of the project, Mr. Crowley sent me a text message suggesting he'd "like to get the job back on his schedule." As I was due to move in to the home later that week, the work needed to be completed in short order to ensure I would be able to move in my positions, and that the moving crew had unobstructed access to the home. I shared with Mr. Crowley the time frame in which we would be moving (4 days from then), and Mr. Crowley suggested that there would be 1 or 2 days of work to complete. However on the day of moving in, it was apparent that the work had not been completed, and the work site hadn't been cleaned or prepared for the moving company. It was only after repeated text messages and calls that Mr. Crowley returned over the course of 3 days to complete the job (2 days after moving in). Upon completion, Mr. Crowley and I agreed that payment would be made after an inspection from the structural engineer to confirm the work was done, and to the quality and standards established. After reviewing the completed job, the structural engineer assessed the project was done to his satisfaction and provided documentation to that effect. That same morning, he notified Mr. Crowley and me of his conclusion. Mr. Crowley then contacted me to request payment per the agreement. As I was unable to meet Mr. Crowley at that exact moment, I suggested that I would call him that same evening to discuss details (who to make the check payable to; how much was the final cost; etc.). At 6:45pm that night, having returned from work 15 minutes earlier, I received a text message from Mr. Crowley demanding payment immediately, or that "it will be turned over to the attorneys and it will cost (me) triple". I phoned Mr. Crowley as soon as I read the text, and was shocked at his threatening and hostile tone. Although the project was, eventually, completed per the agreement, my experience with Mr. Crowley was one of the most unprofessional, discourteous, and concerning interactions I've encountered. He complained about the job being a "pain in the BLANK" for him, made no apology for his actions, and offered no consideration for the added time, stress, frustration, and liability incurred by his behavior. I would STRONGLY advise against ever hiring ASC Construction, or Mr. R. Charles Crowley, based on this experience.

  • Dave and Corey were great to work with. Very professional and personable. We had them do a pretty wide variety of work, from adding a room to a finished basement (with a pretty complex herringbone floor pattern), to installing marble tile in a bathroom, installing an intricate travertine backsplash in the kitchen, canned lights and pendants in the kitchen, and a variety of other smaller tasks. All work was high quality (Dave is the owner, and is involved in all of their projects. He takes a lot of pride in his work, and it shows in his results). Pricing was great (we compared them against several other bids), especially considering the quality of their work. I highly recommend Dixon's Custom Home Solutions, and will be using them for future projects myself.

  • Thanks to Scott and his team, we have our new dream basement!! Scott is a very unique professional. It’s unlikely that you're going to find a GC that is a top-notch interior designer and has 30 + years in the construction industry with deep vendor and subcontractor relationships. He designed every aspect of our basement. Scott helped pick out carpet, paint, wood flooring, wall texture, door hardware, cabinets, granite, etc... and we LOVE it. Scott knows how to design high-end living spaces and he delivered for us. Scott has a solid team of sub-contractors that he's used for years. They know how to get the job done and they'll deliver. It doesn't always go perfect as he'll tell you, but Scott does a good job managing his people, correcting problems, and delivering on expectations. Scott is going to be more critical of his subs work than you are as I've witnessed. Scott didn't like the way his mason completed our stacked stone columns. He made the owner of the mason company show up on a Saturday morning and he and the owner worked through the challenges to make it perfect. He holds their feet to the fire to get it right. He won't stop until you're happy. One of his subs told me "he's sweet to his clients and tough on his subs". I've found this statement to be true. This is our second job with Scott as our first experience with our overhang was superior as well. We trust Scott with any construction project needs we have in the future. I would highly recommend Scott for any basement, deck, overhang, or general living space projects you're looking at completing. A few tips: For the best working relationship with your GC, set all expectations up front and as things change in your mind make sure they're communicated clearly and right away. Don't assume anything. Scott doesn't read minds! If you don't say anything, that's on you, not Scott. Be flexible. Sometimes what you have in your head is not feasible or practical. Scott will be honest with you on what will or won't work. Be open minded and consider all options. Work with Scott collaboratively and you'll come to solutions that you'll be satisfied with. Treat your GC with mutual respect. If you're the type of home owner that complains, finger points, and generally enjoys beating up contractors, consider doing the project yourself or not at all. Nobody deserves that kind of treatment including you if the roles were reversed, right? I would encourage you to do your best to avoid this kind of behavior throughout your project. Scott will do anything to make you happy, but be reasonable. He can't move heaven and earth though he may try. Think about what's fair before you ask him to move mountains and consider putting yourself in his shoes first before you judge a situation. All GCs - the good ones anyway - will have multiple projects going on simultaneously. If you're the only job your GC has, then I would be worried. Scott will be responsive, but he can get busy just like you. He'll do his best to get back to you right away, but if he doesn't don't blow a gasket. Practice patience and empathy. Know every job is important to him. If you feel like you're in need of more attention, let him know. He's very good with open and direct communication. In short: 1. Provide clear expectations and good communication before, during, and after the project is finished. Never assume. 2. Be the best partner you can be. See Scott as a partner and work with him collaboratively on your project. 3. Practice patience, empathy, and flexibility with all parties through the duration of the project. We are all human beings and mistakes happen. Do these three things and you'll have a positive experience with any GC. You'll also raise your chances of having a fantastic outcome with your construction project as my wife and I did. - Mark

  • Brian did an excellent job measuring and explaining the process. Matt and Jamie were right on time, and performed the job professionally. They explained the process, answered all questions, and were courteous and friendly. They left the job site clean. I would highly recommend LifTech and the team.

  • I highly recommend Tom Miller Remodeling without reservation. Tom remodeled my basement from scratch and the results are beautiful. Now I have a 2-bedroom apartment for guests. What I appreciated most is that he listened to me, honoring my desires and needs. His price was very reasonable, he and his workers were friendly and respectful, and Tom stayed in contact throughout so that I always knew when he was coming and when he was not. I found Tom after interviewing nine other contractors! A few years later I called him back to do some more work at the house, and my experience was the same.

  • Perfect. Sebastian showed all of the possible services we could use in our basement, crawl space and garage. Jesse and his crew showed up on time, did a great job on the project, completed in a very timely manner (about 6 hours). Finished product looks incredible, great storage space, no longer have the musty smell in our basement. Will likely have other work done in the future (sump pump systems, drainage systems, etc).

  • They never returned my call after the phone message I left. Chat lady said an "expert" would contact me after I reached out that way. I left my initial phone message late afternoon Monday and I contacted them by chat Tuesday morning. It is now Thursday afternoon and they still haven't contacted me.

  • What I expected to be a huge and VERY expensive job turned out to be relatively minor and inexpensive. I'm pretty sure not every foundation repair company would have been this honest. Colorado Structural Repair doesn't even do mudjacking, so they won't make any money from us if we proceed with the recommended work. I would hire this company in a second if we ever did need foundation repair. They are truly concerned with the needs of the homeowner versus just trying to make a sale.

  • The job went very well and I would use them again and recommend them to friends. They were on time every day and very respectful to our schedule and ongoing family activities. They set up a barrier in the basement to contain the dust and removed all of the trash without leaving a mess. Very happy with the results, the new dry wall blends right in with the previous and the trim was also matched.

  • Larry has been an absolute joy to work with and even helped with some contracting questions and problems throughout the home selling process. They even went back in a month later when one inspector claimed to have found moisture and Remcon provided evidence to the contrary (re-metered the walls, took photos and wrote a letter confirming that everything was in fact bone dry and that NO moisture existed) and proved that the inspector was lying. All free of charge. They take great pride in their work and they take excellent care of their customers. In Larry's own words, he wants to do the job right and make sure his customers are 100% satisfied. Larry, Brad and Remcon are ABSOLUTELY AMAZING and I cannot express how much they've done for myself and my family....we love them!!!
