The problem: The homeowners needed more living space and wanted a room where they could view and enjoy the outdoors, including looking out over a hill in their backyard.
The solution: We designed and installed a sunroom addition with ample living space and plenty of windows, which allow the natural light in and unobstructed views of the yard.
The Mellots tell us:
Let me begin by expressing my overall satisfaction with the work your company recently completed on the sunroom addition and remodeling of our kitchen and family room. As you are probably aware, the effort had its troublesome moments with materials suppliers and subcontractors, but your company stood behind its promises and resolved any and all problems without hesitation. While disarray, confusion and generally messy conditions are a big part of any remodeling effort, I thought your company demonstrated an attitude of cooperation and thoroughness that provided an overall quality result that met all of our expectations.
I want to particularly commend two of your employees – Richard Campbell and Bruce Nelson. If it had not been for Rich, we would not have undertaken our project with Coastal Builders. We solicited several contractors for estimates and by far Richard was much more willing to incorporate our ideas, make changes in the plans and generally work with us to create what we wanted – not what he wanted. Had not Rich been as accommodating and helpful in the planning process, I know we would have used another company.
Once the project was underway, Bruce Nelson, our Lead Carpenter, was nothing short of excellent. One of our fears with this project was getting a high quality of workmanship that would make the addition and remodeling blend with our existing home. I cannot say enough good words about the care that Bruce took in every phase of the project. He did virtually every task from framing to finish carpentry with attention to detail and concern for our desires. He worked with us to implement ideas that on paper looked simple but were more challenging to implement. To Bruce’s credit, he maintained a continually helpful and professional attitude despite our never-ending questions about how various items would come together. While Richard’s attitude and cooperation got us to Coastal Builders, Bruce’s workmanship and desire to do the very best job would bring us back for other projects and lead us to recommend your company to anyone who asks our opinion.
Our thanks for a job well done and an enjoyable renovation result to our home.
