Everything's good. Construction Specialties did some kitchen remodeling for me. They came with the company I bought the countertops from. I went with whoever they used, and it worked out good. They were excellent. They did a great job. I haven't had any problems, and it looks great, so I'm all good.
They're very quick. They responded quickly after I had called, they got the job done quickly, and it looks very good. We had a problem with the ceiling in the dining room, and they came out and patched it, sanded it, and then painted that room. We needed the ceiling painted in the kitchen area, and they painted that as well. We had previous experience with them, and they had done very good, so they were called again. I'd have to give them an A+.
Construction Specialties was on time, and that was the biggest thing—when he said he'd be here, he was here. They completed the job, and I've had no problems. They put in new faucets for me for a sink and a bath. I chose them because I'd had granite counters put in. They work with the granite company that recommended them. So I had him come in and put in the plumbing for the sink and the dishwasher. Then, a second time, I had faucets replaced for both bathrooms, and I called him back. I would give them an A.
Construction Specialties was fine.
Construction Specialties was always on time. They were very professional, they cleaned up after themselves, and they did good work. If we weren't happy with it, they came back and took care of it. They were all good. They did a full bathroom remodel for me. I think they were a recommendation from somebody else. Somebody else had done their house, and they really liked them, so that's how we got their number. I'd give them an A.
Construction Specialties put in support brackets for our kitchen countertop. It was remodeling stuff. My husband was actually there when they installed it, so I guess the workers were courteous. They helped the guys bring the granite in. I'll give them an A. I chose them because they worked with the granite company.
They were very responsive when I called, and they were very accommodating trying to set up appointments. I had to change a couple of things, and they were always very accommodating. They were just doing some braces for some granite work I was having done and installing a sink. Customer service was fine—very good. I chose them because the granite company recommended them; it was someone that they worked with. I would say they're an A.
They were very thorough with their work. They did a basement for me. We picked them because they seemed the most thorough. I'd give them an A.
Construction Specialties was wonderful—they were the best. They were quick, courteous, knowledgeable, and very tidy, and they checked with me every step of the way to make sure that what they were doing was what I wanted. I'd give them an A+.
I liked Construction Specialties' cleanliness, professionalism, and timeliness in completing the job. They did a complete basement remodel, and I would grade them as an A+.
