Review from Niti Patel

We got several bids from recommendations since it was such a big job – but we immediately knew Tim was the right one. We could immediately tell that this was a man who took great pride in his work. He took us to see a live example of his work, and this just confirmed our initial impression.

Throughout the whole process Tim was knowledgeable, patient and worked with us to find the best solution for our needs. He has a keen eye for clean, modern design, which is exactly what we wanted. Additionally, Tim was always two steps ahead of us in thinking about how we would LIVE in the house – as an example, which way the bathroom door would swing so it wouldn’t interfere with closets, where the trash can would go in the bathrooms, where the kitty litter boxes would live in the house, etc. These are all the things you DON’T think of when putting together your dream house, but are of the utmost importance.

Tim was never shy about letting you know his opinion, but I appreciated this as it was my first time remodel and forced me to think carefully about big decisions that could have been costly to redo. I often ended up taking his advice and was always glad that I did.

Tim is also the biggest perfectionist we know. He has such a high standards and takes such great pride in his work that he would never cut corners. There were definitely times during the process I would get frustrated at extra costs to fix a problem has been uncovered during the remodeling (i.e. uneven floor in our closet, stairs that didn’t meet code), but he always gave sound advice and reminded us to think about the long term. We’re so glad we listened and love our house – as does everyone who walks into the home. I never thought I’d be living in a house as beautiful as mind is now – and it’s thanks to Tim.

I don’t know if he’s the cheapest – but I do know that you won’t get anyone who is more honest and who does such beautiful, quality work.

As an addendum, we continue to be in contact with Tim – going to him for advice and additional work we want done (hard to stop improving once you’ve started!)

Review from Sarah & Ryan McKenney

Tim, at Houston Remodeling, has been a fantastic partner in our multi-staged whole home remodeling project. We met Tim when we first moved to Houston to look for a house (expecting to remodel). He was fantastically helpful as he went with us to homes we were considering to assess the integrity of the overall structure, extent of remodel required and general thoughts about what could and should be done to achieve our goals. After looking at countless homes, we made a decision and went right to work.

Tim’s ability to provide design/build services saved us time and money, and had the added advantage of knowing more directly the costs of various design or renovation options. Tim’s background as a trim carpenter was extremely beneficial in the way he was able to manage and guide his subs during the construction process. The trim carpenter in him provided the critical eye and attention to detail that was always appreciated. Additionally, having a GC that has actually done (and done quite well) the detailed trim work helps him to know and demand great work from his subs.

We started our project in the summer of 2009 and finished the total remodel in the first part of 2010. We have since worked with Tim on a number of other, smaller projects and have always been thrilled with the outcome.

Thanks, Tim!
