We recently completed a major remodel of our 1970's vintage home engaging Chris Flores of Westhill Construction as our contractor. From our first meeting, where we asked scores of questions about the process, the costs, the design, and the timeline, Chris really listened to our vision for the project, offered many great ideas, and encouraged us to collaborate with him on all phases of the design and construction. Chris also provided us with a detailed bid which included options and relative costs of various design elements, quality of fixtures and finishes, etc. He gave us an extensive list of references who we contacted, and who were uniformly thrilled with Westhill's quality, service, and price. I should also make it clear that we interviewed four other well-respected construction companies before we decided on Westhill. While I'm sure that they are all good and capable contractors, not one of them was willing to provide the kind of detailed design and budget proposal that Chris offered us without first signing a contract and providing a hefty deposit.
Throughout the remodel of our kitchen, dining room, entry hall, skylights, windows, doors, master bedroom, and three bathrooms, from demolition to the final cleaning, Chris and his team were always professional, courteous, and respectful of our home and grounds. Every afternoon, as the work day would come to a close, there was a general cleanup (never any trash left behind - not even sawdust), a report on what had been accomplished, and a preview of "next steps". As we moved through the timeline, Chris would meet with us and supply us with a checklist of our "next steps" in choosing appliances, hardware, tile, bathroom fixtures, etc. This really kept us focused and on track. There were no "surprises" in the process. Chris also stayed on budget. If we decided to make changes or up-grades along the way, he'd provide us with a price, as well as with alternatives, so that we could decide if the change was actually worth making.
About a year after the completion of this remodel, we invited Chris back to help us with another project - transforming wasted space under our deck into a wine making and storage area. Once again, he took our ideas and made them a reality. This was not a straightforward design, but Chris was able to work within the space and now we have a place to make and store wine from our small cabernet vineyard.
We know, first hand, how stressful and expensive a major remodel can be, but when you put your trust in Westhill Construction, you will not be disappointed. If we had to do it all over again, Chris would be the first person we'd call! He receives our highest recommendation! Thanks Chris!!
