We met several General Contractors at the 2011 Seattle Home Show, but Better Builders provided the most complete estimate of my wife's intent and remodeling scope of work for our newly purchased home. Our scope included a reinforced foundation, mudroom addition, relocating the electrical panel with re-wiring, remodeling a kitchen and two bathrooms, new floors in these rooms, a closest in a bedroom, changed to tankless water heater, installing custom made cabinets and appliances, and painting outside and inside.
The workers laid padding on the floors to protect them while they worked in other parts of the house and cleaned after themselves every day. Bill Babb, of Better Builders, presented a detailed estimate of costs and completed the project on schedule and within the price based on our selections. He gave us more opportunity to input different products with his design team because of our background, knowledge, and experience. Better Builders provided accounting statements with every expenditure which allowed us to track the progress with the estimate and our funds insuring we were within our budget.
On a couple occasions, Better Builders asked the sub-contractors to redo a couple minor work items that we were not pleased with and they completed the work to our satisfaction at no cost to us. The Better Builders workers and sub-contractors were excellent craftsman who paid attention to detail. The primary crew and sub-contractors were neat, well-mannered and polite. We highly recommend Better Builders to any interested remodeler who may want a small project to a higher-end project like ours. Overall Better Builders performed a high-end large scale remodeling project that we just love.
