Over the past two years, my wife and I have engaged Bellevue Construction to act as general contractors in several home renovation projects. I am beyond pleased with their outstanding work. My point of contact was Bellevue’s President, Allan Wiltzer, who was a complete professional in all aspects.
- Project 1 was a major renovation and extension to our kitchen, and renovations to our main floor, powder room and vestibule. We could not be happier and our designer proudly features our kitchen on her website.
- Project 2 was the construction of a large multi-level deck in the back of our house. The end result so exceeded our expectations
- Project 3 is in progress now and it is a complete redo of our in-home gym.
- Quality, creativity and attention to detail: Allan, his team and his sub-trade simply did perfect work. When the jobs were completed there were absolutely no regrets for any decisions and each and every deficiency was spotted and corrected before we ever had to even make a request for remediation. On Project 2, the changes that they had to make were just brilliantly done.
- Budgeting process: Detailed project budgets were given to us from the outset and they clearly delineated what would or would not be out of scope. Any change orders were explained to us in advance and Allan and his team always gave us options along with costs laid out. There were quite simply no surprises as the jobs proceeded. Project 1 was approx. $11,000 UNDER budget and Project 2 was $400 over budget (given the issues, I would have thought it would have been quite a bit higher).
- Timeliness: Renovations are always disruptive but the manner with which Bellevue planned the work minimized both the hassles for us and the time spent from the commencement to the conclusion. For Project 1, there was never a stop in the work, other than for weekends, from the day the project started until it ended. We were thrilled.
- Responsiveness: Whenever we had any questions about any aspect of the work, we received responses from Allan and his team usually within minutes and always within 24 hours.
In conclusion, if you want to hire a GC that will make your renovation project hassle and surprise free, I can think of no better group that Bellevue. A 5-star rating across the board!
