We hired Scott for to finish our unfinished basement. He was the first of three companies that we had in for an estimate. After spending about an hour with him discussing with him what we had in mind and various options, he said he'd have a drawing (we used a coupon that he had available through Angie's List for the drawing) and estimate back to us within two weeks. During that time, we had a number of e-mail exchanges discussing additional thoughts and details about the project, and Scott always responded in a timely manner. I am a fairly detail-oriented person and had a lot of questions to ask prior to making a decision on who to hire for our project, and Scott was happy to answer any and all questions that I had. We received the estimate within the time frame Scott gave us, and it was very comparable to the other two estimates we ended up receiving. We ultimately decided to go with Scott because of his great communication and our belief that he understood best what we were looking for and how to best get us there within our estimated budget. We were definitely not disappointed in our choice. Scott continued his excellent communication throughout the project with almost daily e-mails/calls as to the status and upcoming schedule. As the project developed, he had a number of great suggestions on how to improve certain things, not to add cost, but to add value to the project. Scott and all of his subcontractors were all very courteous, respectful and great to work with and you could really tell that they all took great pride in their work. We felt completely comfortable having them in our home whether we were present or not. The workspace was kept as clean as possible and Scott was frequently on site even when he was not participating in that day's work to check on his subs and to make sure things were proceeding according to plan. Scott even adjusted one of our kitchen cabinet doors that he noticed wasn't straight on his own. He kept the final costs within his estimate - no surprises - and completed the work within his estimated time frame. The only minor cost increases were for a few additions that we requested after the original estimate. The final product actually exceeded our expectations and our family absolutely loves the added space. And while we thought everything was top-notch, we were especially impressed by the custom cabinetry that was installed in the play room and bedroom. We have already recommended Scott to neighbors and friends and would certainly use him again for any future projects.
