Mike, our lead carpenter, was great. He was very timely. I was very pleased with his performance and punctuality. He was very self motivated. He had good initiative and did his job well-he had high quality work standards. He managed the subcontractors for the plumbing and the electric so we didn't have to do anything. We trusted our carpenter with the whole project and he managed the project well.

Foster Remodeling is the true meaning of professionalism and dependability. David Foster and his team provide excellent knowledge, service and products as well as attention to detail. They make sure the client is informed and satisfied and provide a smooth process. I would highly recommed Foster Remodeling Solutions.
Really nice job on the kitchen. Workmanship is top notch. The final results are terrific, the attention to detail really shows, and we are certain we now have one of the best kitchens in our neighborhood.
Skilled, thorough, meticulous, and professional is how we would describe Foster's Remodeling Solutions. We had the best experience with this company of any contractor we've ever used. Highly recommended.
My husband and I first used Foster Remodeling 15 years ago, when we built an office onto our home, We built "up" and not "out," and the result was a new addition that, together with Foster, were able to ensure that it looked "organic" to the house, not a tack-on addition.When it was time to update and remodel our kitchen and breakfast room, I thought of no one but Foster. I even asked for the same master carpenter from 15 years ago, and got him! Because we our own company and have a home office (as above, built by Foster), I was here every day to watch the "demolition" and the building, and was regularly consulted on how I thought things were going, small details not included in our original plan, etc. At first I thought the entire project was a little pricey, but watching it happen, the quality of the materials and workmanship, we think it was a real bargain. It is absolutely beautiful, increased the value of our home by more than what we spent, and was a wonderful addition to our lifestyle.I would recommend David Foster and his team to anyone who wants to improve their home.
Professional staff and customer focus in planning and production management and in skilled workmanship. The staff always remained polite and genuinely interested in customer satisfaction.
I could not have been more pleased with the master bathroom renovation project Foster Remodeling Solutions performed for me. Everyone was extremely professional from start to finish. Sarah was so helpful and a pleasure to work with coming up with the design, Greg made sure I understood the schedule and exactly what would be happening, and Marco, the Lead Carpenter, did such a fantastic job everyday. He kept me in the loop and daily job site clean up was outstanding. I love my new bathroom! Foster Remodeling Solutions has the job for any future projects for me.
I gave Foster Remodeling Solutions a small "trial project" this summer related to a bathroom remodel. I had a positive experience, so I decided to go with them on a very complex project that affected every floor of my home, to include load bearing structures. They did excellent work in timely fashion, were transparent in their billing practices, and even accomodated special requests along the way. I give them my highest recommendation and am confident that I will seek them out again for my next big project.
The Foster team was professional, courteous, and timely from design to build. My recent Foster remodel transformed my finished basement. I'm so pleased and confident with their work that I am already working with them again to remodel two more bathrooms in my house.
Foster's approach was careful and thorough. They explained each step, made their recommendations, and followed our decisions. I believe their tag line is "our process makes it perfect," and they have a very thorough and deliberate process that has lead twice in the last year to two separate projects that have been done completely to our satisfaction.
This was the second project they completed for us this year. We liked them the first time and had them come back. We asked for the same lead work crew and they accommodated us with that. We were very satisfied with their workmanship and attitude. The lead carpenter was very thorough in explaining what he was encountering and how he would resolve it.
There was not much of a punchlist because it was done so well the first time. David Foster did not personally do the work, but he did personally inspect the work while it was in progress and he made some judgement for the improvement of the appearance and quality of the work as it was proceeding. He took a personal interest in the project and he discussed with the lead carpenter how a particular aspect of it should be finished.
We are very pleased with our remodeled kitchen. We were kept informed throughout the process about any issues that arose and they were dealt with effectively. We will definitely consider using Foster Remodeling in the future.
We would not hesitate to strongly recommend Foster Remodeling! Our kitchen remodel, from design to finish, went very smoothly. Sarah (designer), Jack (lead carpenter) and Greg (project manager) did an outstanding job to ensure that our requirements and wishes for our kitchen remodel were met. We appreciated the detailed schedule that was mapped out before we signed any contract and we knew exactly what was going to be happening on a day-by-day basis with our kitchen remodel. We LOVE our new kitchen. Thanks again Sarah, Jack and Greg for an outstanding job!!
Foster Remodeling Solutions just completed a bathroom remodeling, one of several large projects the company has done for us. Their process from initial consultation to completion has always been as they advertise. We always knew "what, when, and where" through out the projects. Any additions or changes we wanted were discussed from all aspects before they were incorporated into the plans. The experience and skill of their lead carpenters is very obvious by their work ethic and the quality of workmanship. The completed jobs show this.
It was a great experience working with Foster Remodeling Solutions. So many people I've talked to who have had remodeling work done have had complaints the whole way through, and we've had no complaints.
This was our second major job with Foster. We find them to be very professional, thorough, reliable, clean and timely. They are the best of the best and we look forward to working with them again in the future.
We found Foster to be both friendly and professional in all of its dealings with us. The ability to have a designer, architect and builder under one roof made it easy to accomplish what we envisioned when we started this project. We knew what the cost would be before we started, and there were never any "unexpected" expenses once the work began.We are extremely satified with the finished project. Foster was there to remedy any problems that arose with subcontractors. We have and will continue to recommend Foster.
I would highly recommend Foster Remodeling. The entire experience with Foster Remodeling was smooth and easy. Everyone from Foster Remoding was always completely professional, competent and on time. They always made sure we were getting exactly what we wanted - color, material, quality, and style. We were also very impressed with the measures they took to protect the rest of the house during the remodeling. We couldn't be more pleased with the results. C.K.
We loved working with Foster and their team. Everyone was amazing. They communicated daily on what was happening, cleaned up after themselves and gave us an amazing kitchen. Thank you!
Foster's provided a very comprehensive project planning stage for which we were very grateful not having executed a project of this size in our home in the past. While the extensive planning took several months, the time was well spent as the execution of the project was nearly flawless. We are exceedingly happy with this contracting agency.
FRS built a 1750 sq. ft. two-story addition to my home in 2003-4; since that time we have had them return for two other large projects. We have felt lucky that we found them as our builder... the staff, from sales to clean-up, have been experienced, professional and courteous. Projects have been within budget and always on time; no hidden costs and no extra time to reorder a part that was incorrect. I would recommend them without reservation to anyone looking for a reliable contractor.
It has been a fabulous experience. I was afraid of doing something like this before but after what I went through I would do it all over again in a heart beat. It was just wonderful. I have already recommended them to many of my friends.
Our bathroom project was the second job that we've done with Fosters after our kitchen remodel. We know this quality work is adding value to our home. Working with Fosters team of professionals is easy and reassuring with every step of the process.
The crew could not have been nicer, they were professional and helpful and we had a very very pleasant and positive experience. I will use the company again the future if the need arises. I will recommend them to someone else in the future.
As with most people I am worried about getting quality work and good value for my money, especially when you are a single mom with two kids. My project was a new kitchen which also moved walls and changed the purpose of rooms in my house. The results were amazing and everyday when I come in the house I have to pinch myself and say "Is this really mine?".The craftsmenship on this project iwas amazing. It doesn't take much knowledge to hang a cabinet; what takes experience is making everything level and square in a 40+ year old house. Thank you Foster Remodeling Solutions and a special call out to Marco who did a fabulous job!
I found them to meet or exceed every expectation. Their recommendations enhanced the projects and were very much appreciated. In total I am absolutely satisfied. I have used them on 5 previous projects so I wouldn't be coming back if they were not good solutions.
We just completed a family room renovation with Foster Remodeling. Over the years, Foster has also remodeled our kitchen, guest bathroom and basement. They replaced all doors and windows, built a master suite closet and added a sunroom. This most recent project, like all others, was completed without any problems. The Foster way of planning for a project is very effective and prevents disputes from erupting along the way. The cost you pay is the cost in the contract. No surprises along the way. And, our salesman, Chris Arnold, worked with us during the design phase to ensure that we thought through the many options available so that we ended up with the results we were looking for. He is patient and extremely professional and thorough. We had a different lead carpenter on each project and each one has been respectful, hard working, communicative and a master at the details. We highly, highly recommend Foster!
We are very happy and proud of our new addition and are continuing to use Foster for handyman services and new projects. We actually look forward to having work done by Foster in the future.
Dave was totally and completely thorough and attentive and knowledgeable and still is.
