We cannot say enough good things about Unique Construction and the company s owner, Mr. Jimmy Dean. We interviewed 6 other builders before selecting Mr. Dean. Quite simply, he is one of the nicest people we have ever met. Also one of the most conscientious, responsible, trustworthy, generous, patient and fair-minded. Mr. Dean s work is outstanding. After 35 years of experience, he knows construction inside and out, and he has a long list of references who sing his praises. He is a perfectionist who will not rest until he is certain he has done the job right and the client is satisfied. He never takes shortcuts; he always wants to do the job the right way, as he puts it, even if it entails more time and effort on his part. Mr. Dean stayed within budget and finished on schedule. He never nickle-and-dimed us. Quite the opposite, in fact. He gave us a number of items we never thought to ask for in the contract (e.g., back splashes for counters, mirrors larger than requested, extra towel bars, etc.), and yet he never charged an extra cent for these additional items. And towards the end of the project, he agreed to take on some additional work which we had neglected to include in the contract. Until we insisted on paying him for this additional work, he had no intention of billing us for it. Additionally, Mr. Dean has an artist s eye and impeccable taste. For example, when tiling our showers, he offered to create border designs for them. As a result, we ended up with two gorgeous showers instead of the plain, unadorned ones we had planned. Mr. Dean keeps the work site impeccably clean. (In fact, during the project, our town inspector was bringing other builders to our house to show them an example of what a well maintained site looks like). Mr. Dean did an excellent final clean-up and left the property in pristine condition. Finally, throughout the project, Mr. Dean was extremely easy to reach by phone as well as email. As first-time remodelers, we tended to get nervous about things. Almost every evening we sent Mr. Dean at least one email (sometimes a whole barrage of emails) asking him questions about various issues. He promptly (and very patiently) replied to every single email, responding to every question and concern raised. And unlike other builders who disappear once the project is complete (or in some cases, even before the project is complete), Mr. Dean has remained just as reachable as always, even after completion of the job. Mr. Dean does both modular construction and conventional construction. We chose a modular addition. (A modular house or addition is indistinguishable from a conventionally built house or addition. However, modular construction is much faster, less disruptive, usually less costly, and environmentally friendlier. And modular structures are less prone to mold). In summation, it has been an absolute delight working with Mr. Dean, and we would hire him again in a heartbeat.
