It was excellent. They were punctual and got everything done timely. They cleaned up after themselves. They touched base with me before they touched any project. They finished up when they said they would. I am going to use them again. The head contractor has had people working with him for more than 10years, they worked together very well. We had 3 big dogs that they were very mindful and courteous of.

The staff person who helped us, Bruce, was very nice and friendly, extremely helpful, and a pleasure to work with. He did a great and through job of installing accessible door handles, and making sure they met my needs. As a wheelchair user with limited ability it is a wonderful thing to find a company and staff who are so helpful and thorough.

Monte arrived on time, was very pleasant. He got right to work. The only surprise was that the ramp ended up completely dismantled, when I had wanted it in pieces. However, after speaking with the person who built it, it seems that dismantling it in pieces would perhaps not have been possible. He stacked the pieces neatly in the driveway. He very quickly fixed my towel bars and they are now really secure, possibly for the first time in years.

Due to his efforts (and ours, of course) our home sold within one day of listing with the realtor. I would highly recommend Jim as a trusted and capable painter and handyman. I hope that someone needing his expert assistance will read this and find a solution to their problems, as we did. We are planning on asking him to help us paint our new place (when we find it) and hang the more complex items on the walls!

Everything went very well. Ryan met with us to discuss the services we wanted. He recommended that we check job sites at various stages of completion to see the product over time. When we signed to give them the contract for the job, he worked with us at every stage, keeping us informed throughout. When we were discussing how the siding would be put around an existing deck, we mentioned that we might in the future plan to replace the existing deck, with a new deck made with composite wood. Ryan knew his business so well that he was able to tell us that the composite wood deck product would be a different thickness than the existing deck, so plans were made to remove pieces of the existing deck, so the siding would be placed to the proper level. Even though we didn't have the deck done for another 6 months, replacement boards were installed temporarily for safety measures. When a painter he hired to paint window trim inadvertently painted the sealant, Ryan had his main crew come to work through the difficulties, and make sure the windows would open as they should. In most work situations, one will encounter problems. Ryan has good attention to detail, and he makes sure that the job is done correctly. Ralston Exteriors has excellent workmanship, and they are very professional in all regards. Ryan knows his business, and is very upfront about everything. He is patient and thorough, and he always checks back to be sure everything is done to the customer's satisfaction. His crew is highly skilled, and easy to work with. We highly recommend them.

Gatekeepers LLC

I live in a raised ranch home built in the 1950s with a wide staircase up to the main living area. In the past when we've had young children in the home, it has been a real headache to try to secure the stair area. Plastic gates just didn't fit and were too flimsy. I have considered having a carpenter build a gate, but never came up with a good plan. So, last fall, I had a deck built onto the house and was talking to the architect about this problem. He had just been in a house with a Gatekeepers gate and said it was beautiful and would probably work in this setting. I called Tom of Gatekeepers and he came, measured, and built a beautiful custom maple gate for the top of the stairs. It is wonderful! I was so happy to learn it was fully removable, just slips out of the wood railing, but I have not removed it at all as it blends in so well with the woodwork of the house. Looks like it was built into the house. I am thrilled. This has been great for my granddaughter, keeps my dog upstairs if I desire it when people come to the door, and when we have had someone here in a wheelchair, I am totally comfortable with them wheeling around. I can't say enough how pleased I am with the gate--it is more like a piece of furniture. The gate has a very easy to use latch, but also has a and quot;decoy knoband quot; to keep two-year-olds occupied (and a number of grad student guests I've had). I love it! The actual mechanism is extremely simple to open and to close, but the decoy has the effect of keeping little ones occupied instead of opening the gate. So, when the deck was finished, I called Tom again to put in a cedar gate for the deck (the deck has aluminum railings so did not include a gate in the original deck plan). Again, I am totally pleased. Both gates were hung beautifully and it is obvious Tom takes great care in the work and product. I can't recommend this enough! It has so simplified my life and made my home more beautiful--something I never would have expected from a gate.

Larson Builders LLC

We have a small 1940s-era bungalow, and the tiny cramped bathroom was becoming a real problem as we got older and creakier. We literally had 10" of space between the front of the toilet and the edge of the tub, making it nearly impossible for someone with severely arthritic knees to use the toilet, and the vanity cabinet for the sink made for such cramped quarters that it wasn't possible for a crutch-user to get into the bathroom at all. Even using a cane in that room was difficult. We didn't want a designer appearance, and we weren't trying to put a modern contemporary bathroom into a 70-year-old home; our priorities were function and accessibility. We talked to several different contractors, and Rick Larson was the only one who really listened to, AND heard, what we were saying. Rick started by bringing out several of his subcontractors to see the job, discuss alternatives with us and explore the most cost-effective quality solution. It did take a while for him to compile the data and put numbers together, but it was clear in examining the incredibly detailed proposal that a great deal of thought and care had gone into it. After some questions and answers, and a few changes, we met with Rick to sign the contract, and work commenced in early September. The bathroom that was remodeled is the only one in the house. We have a toilet in the basement, but no other bathing facilities, and Rick told us that he had been losing sleep over worrying about what we'd do for a shower during the project. What he did was to contrive a shower-surround with plastic sheeting and drywall poles, so that with the exception of one overnight when the tub had been removed but the shower base was not yet in, we were able to shower all the way through the entire project! We were incredibly grateful for his extra care (and I am sure that our coworkers were as well). Not surprisingly with a 70-year-old house, there were a few surprises lurking below the surface. There was some water damage to the plaster around the tub. The light fixture we liked turned out not to fit very well with the cabinet we had chosen. Rick addressed each problem that emerged with creativity and artistry, and the solutions he came up with were both practical and elegant. Each of the subcontractors on the job showed up promptly on the date they were supposed to, and they all did superb jobs in their respective trades. Rick did an heroic job of scheduling them all around each other, and it went very smoothly. He also kept us updated on the results of each of the city inspections throughout the project (there were at least six or seven, for different phases of the work), and every inspection was passed with flying colors. One of the most incredible things about our experience with Larson Builders was the level of communication we received throughout the entire process. We got daily emails, often more than one, occasionally with photos, updating us on what had been done, any issues encountered, plans for the days to come, and anything else pertinent to the progress on the project. When we asked questions, we got prompt and very informative responses. Another thing that we were continually astounded by and tremendously grateful for was the attention to detail that was shown throughout the project. Rick would vacuum the bathroom, the hallway, and part of the living room at the end of the day - then he'd get out his leaf-blower and clear off our driveway at the end of each week! He asked for and wrote down the names of our two cats, and asked how they interact with strangers. He checked in with our neighbors to be sure that his vehicle wasn't in their way. He noticed that the bathroom floorboards were creaking (not surprising in a house this old) and offered to put extra screws in to stop the squeaking. He even noticed that our front door needed a hard push to open or close, so he took off the door and adjusted the hinges so it would fit better! The little extras, the attention to every last detail all through the entire project, were just incredible. The project was finished well within the overall time estimates. Due to issues like the hidden water damage in the plaster that could not be foreseen ahead of time, the final total was higher than the initial estimate - but it is important to note that every single change throughout the entire process was clearly communicated as it emerged, with the cost impact it would have. I am an accountant, so I spent quite a while reviewing and analyzing the final bill in comparison to the initial estimate and the change orders that had been approved during the project, and I was pleased to discover that there were no surprises, nothing that we were not expecting based on the changes we had authorized. The actual bathroom is so incredibly much easier to navigate than it was before the project that it doesn't even feel like the same house. It's not fully ADA-compliant; nobody will ever get a wheelchair through that bathroom door. But then, neither is the rest of the house; they just didn't build them that way back in the 1940s. Within the limitations of a small, basic 70-year-old bungalow, Rick did an exemplary job of making the most of the available space, and in doing so, he has made a profound difference in our quality of life. The bathroom unquestionably looks better than it did before, but the real gift is in the vastly improved usability and accessibility. We are deeply grateful for the care, attention, creativity and thoroughness that Rick Larson brought to this project, and for the impact that it has had on our lives. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Larson Builders LLC to anyone who values quality, craftsmanship, attention to detail, and a highly ethical approach to remodeling work.
