Do not work with Better Built Northwest. You can easily find better contractors that will do better work for the same cost. Mike Gayman and Caleb Helm initially impressed me. They responded quickly and gave me a bid for the job within a day. They started work as soon as we had the permit. Things only got worse from there though. They do not have enough experience within the building industry to ha...

Our project is still underway but we wanted to post a review for this company of how happy we have been with their work! We have been working with Caleb and Mike (owners of Better Built Northwest) since November of 2017. We hired their company to completely remodel our 1930s Tudor house in West Seattle (2000sq ft). Remodel involves raising the house to create a full basement. Complete demolition o...

We had a wonderful experience with Caleb and Mike. We had been gun shy as we had a crooked contractor do our first remodel in 2004. BetterBuiltNW were very responsive and considerate. We received quality craftsmanship at a fair price. They even fixed a few handyman tasks for me that had been lingering for many years. The worksite was always tidy at the end of the day and they made a concerted effo...

From the start it was awesome! I contacted many companies for bids, and I've never had a more prompt response, EVERY single time I called or emailed, as I did with Caleb. Price was on par compared to everyone else, but the prompt response and attitude had me hire Better Built. Once they started (it was two workers), the project took about a week, and I know they had more unexpected issues (uneven ...

Very quickly. I was surprised at how detailed and FAST they were for "just a deck" (in my mind). They advised hourly contract due to the nature of work (repair and rebuild), and they were correct. It was cheaper than the other quotes. Once they were finished it was spotless. I would love to find one criticism, because it seems artificial that I am saying everything was excellent, but that truly is...

Better Built Northwest was one of several contractors we contacted to discuss replacing two leaking outdoor tile decks. Caleb showed up on time for all our meetings, and gave us what turned out to be great advice about repairing the water damage that resulted from the leaks. We hired BBNW on a time and materials basis, and couldn’t be happier with the work they did. Showed up every day at 7 am, an...

We used the owner to build a fence around our large backyard before and since we were so satisfied with his and his team's work, it was a natural choice for us to have him build our deck as well. Caleb, Mike and team were as expected very easy to communicate with, punctual and open in communication, always accessible to us for questions and of course they did an outstanding job building our new st...

Better than expected. They were super nice guys that work hard, very knowledgeable, and took pride in their craftsmanship. We hired them on for two additional projects.

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
New rooftop deck, water valve on roof, and wall/door on carport storage. We had a leak on our rooftop, causing us to tear up the decking to fix the cause. We contacted Caleb to get a quote for a new low-maintenance deck. He was very knowledgeable, giving us a few options at various price points. He even met us at local lumber yard to walk us through our options prior to even being selected for the work. He even developed a plan to install the deck in segments so we could access the roof in the future if necessary. Once we hired him and Mike, they provided a work plan, showed up as expected every day, worked rain or shine, and we're very communicative. We enjoyed working with them and thrilled with the quality of work that we hired them to do two more projects - put a door/wall in our carport and put a water spout on the roof from our laundry room.
