My spouse and I engaged Lawrence Builders for a major remodeling project on our home. It involved near reconstruction of the house, including remodeling one bathroom and adding another, removal and reconstruction of interior walls, excavation and laying foundation for and construction of two new rooms, removal and replacement of new and larger windows, demolition and reconstruction of the roof with new pitch, rewiring, enhanced electrical service, construction of new front and rear porches, redesign and plumbing of the heating zones, installation of central air conditioning, installation of a new upstairs laundry, and construction of a fully new and redesigned kitchen.
Workmanship on this job was outstanding. Inside and out, all specs were met, and the workmen were very careful in their attention to detail.
Of course, any project of this magnitude is bound to have some things go wrong, and we encountered a couple of unforeseen complications subsequent to completion of the work. From the outset, Steve assured us that he would stand behind his work, and he kept this commitment. In the few instances where we later observed problems, he came right in and resolved them to our complete satisfaction.
Perhaps most remarkable is that the whole project came in under budget. We saw no padding to bring costs up to the contracted level that had been agreed upon. When we tell this story to our friends, their jaws drop. Just about everyone has a story about dishonest, misleading, or incompetent builders. This project with Lawrence Builders, however, was as satisfying and stress-free as any construction job could be. We liked the process, we love the outcome, and we very much came to like Steve Lawrence who is everything that a builder should be.
