They are really knowledgable, efficient, and a pleasure to work with. We appreciated their council and advice in guiding us through the process along every step of the way. We felt we could rely on them to address any questions or concerns that we had.
The attention to detail and to fix problems that inevitably arise in a construction/renovation project is exemplary. We ran into an issue that involved a correction of a wall placement and Finecraft stepped up and fixed the problem with some heroic work that resulted in a perfect fix.
Ability to adjust with minor issues- Finecraft always had ideas for solutions and were willing to listen to alternativies and work together. Good team work!
So far we could not be happier with George and Finecraft. We have 8 months to go and feel confident George will keep it all moving along as smoothly as possible.
quality of workmanship and attention to detail - details I would never have known about. That attention to detail is why I will absolutely recommend them to others.
I am thrilled that I chose Finecraft to complete my project. While their costs were in line with other contracting companies, I believe their attention to detail really sets them apart. George and his team, with this focus on all the little details, turned a good project into a great one. I would recommend Finecraft to anyone who has been thinking about a renovation project.
We went into our project with high expectations, given the quality workmanship that FC did on a friends' projects. We are not sure if we just got the D team or what because while the workmanship at some levels was good, there were major problems and work that had to be totally redone because of lack of checking on their own work and lack of communication. We are still waiting on punch list items to be addressed that fall under the warranty. Sadly, we never had this experience on other projects and we could never recommend them. We did not feel this way about other companies in the past.
George Papaheraklis is a true artist and carries that over to his work, which is well-conceived and very well executed. He will make mid-course tinkering (e,g,, put a thin border around tiles) because he "sees" it will look better. He has a number of excellent and stable employees for continuity of high standards and the subcontractors he uses for plumbing or electric have worked seamlessly with his employees when needed and provide great quality as well. He is very hands on, stopping by sites early in the morning or later in the day either to instruct or make clear how he wants it done.The best way to judge George's Finecraft is to see any of his recent work. It is hard to tell from comments like mine, but I saw a large addition he put on a friend's house and it answered all questions and left no doubt. His prices are better than other high-end firms we met and his work quality will dazzle you if you check it out..--Barry C.
I would like to recognize the owner for his exceptional service.
George and Finecraft Contractors have delivered what they promised. Their attention to detail and fairness in pricing has fulfilled my expectations I received from various referrals.
Ray Palma, our foreman, was awesome. In the five months he worked with us we never heard he speak harsdhly to the other men. He was a perfectionist. The tile men did a superb job matching and installing the tiles. Our kitchen cabinets and appliances went together perfectly. The men always cleaned up and were here when they said they would be.
We have recommended Finecraft to everyone who sees our remodelled kitchen and three bathrooms. We believe their work to be superior to that in other homes. Nothing upset the workers and everything was completed in a timely manner. They were extremely polite, courteous and always in a good humor. It was a pleasure to have them in our home.
It was a pleasure working with you too!
As the Finecraft slogan says, the attention to detail was awesome. We were able to count on superior craftsmenship both from Finecraft employees and subcontractors, and it was a pleasure to get to watch an operation that people clearly feel proud and glad to work for, and which leaves everybody free to do their job and do it well. I knew it would be worth the wait, and though I was sometimes challenged to learn patience, it was.

Our job involved both new construction of a small outbuilding and renovation in a house that is nearly 100 years old. Everybody who sees the work is impressed by its beauty and high quality.
There were no "horror" stories with Finecraft. They take pride in their work and take care to listen to the client and work together to produce the client's vision of what they want for their reconstucted home.
They materials and workmanship exceeded my expectations.
They made a stressful project exceedingly manageable.
I would to recognize the CEO George and the entire team (led by Ray) that was assigned to our project for a wonderful job.
It exceeded my expectations.
I have already recommended them to many people.
