David, of 21st Century, professionally managed the project from estimate to completion, and also provided many useful alternatives and suggestions which helped us stay within our budget.
Areas For Improvement - None
Interior Decorator - Although we had a fairly detailed concept in mind, your designer Diane's styling expertise contributed immensely to an even more beautiful outcome.
Recognized Excellence - John's expertise in all phases of the project and his attention to every detail are to be commended. He offered thoughtful alternatives when the inevitable adjustments and compromises to the plan were required.
Most Memorable - I had a picture of a mirror that I liked and they were able to duplicate it for me. I was very pleased.
Remodeling Concerns - The cost was of great concern to me. David was great at working within my budget.
The job done by 21st Century Building was exceptionally professional and clean. They had excellent detail work in their finish. I asked other companies I received quotes from if they could do as good of a job on their finish work and all they said is "we can do it cheaper". I wanted a quality job and 21st Century Building came through with a quality job that has lasted for quite a few years.
Areas Of Satisfaction - I am most satisfied with the work done by 21st Century Building because it has been 5-6 years since they did the job and it still looks like it was done yesterday. My house looks like a brand new home.
Recognized Excellence - David Kramer follows through on anything he tells you, that is not a common thing in companies today.
Most Memorable - The most memorable part of my experience was how proactive everyone was. They were able to find problems that I did not know I had, just to ensure they did a better job.
Remodeling Concerns - I was not sure if the work would look good in the long run but it has definitely continued to look as good as new.

When we decided to add a family room and remodel the kitchen in our home, we researched several potential building contractors using the Better Business Bureau as a starting point. We interviewed three and decided to proceed with 21st Century Building based on process rather than price. Their collaborative design process with their recommended architect, Ed Deering, insured that the concepts we were seeking and the architectural detail needed to develop a proposal were incorporated into the design. Using the designs, 21st Century Building then provided a detailed proposal outlining everything they would provide and their price. The detail made it easy to negotiate the final proposal and price that met our objectives. During the construction phase we found 21st Century Building to be very reliable, dependable and to provide quality craftsmanship work. They have a strong relationship with all their contractors who are very reliable. We were kept informed of everything that was planned, the impact on our personal environment and what they needed from us to keep the project moving. As is likely with almost every large project, there were a few things that we decided to change as the project was proceeding. Again, with the original detailed proposal, it was easy to determine the impact of any changes and the associated costs.No matter how well planned, when modifying an existing home, there were issues from the home’s original design and construction that were not anticipated. The Project Manager, along with the skilled contractors working on the project, rapidly identified fixes that resolved the issues and kept our project on schedule. They also paid close attention to all the detail items that we identified as we neared the completion of our project.We are very pleased with the work they did and we are very excited and happy with our new family room and kitchen. In the future, if we decide to do any additional work on our home, we would return to 21st Century Building without hesitation.
Areas Of Satisfaction - The initial design process, working on-line with 21st Century Building Company's designer Ed Deering, insured that we collaborated on the original design using the latest technology, and enabled us to come up with a design that met our appearance and cost expectations. With the detailed design, David Kramer was able to develop a very detailed project plan and related costs that insured that we would knew when deviated from the original plan, the deviation would result in a different cost (either more or less). Our assigned project manager Kevin was out to the site every day, stayed on top of the work that was being done, effectively managed the city inspectors who reviewed the work and made sure the project was completed in the time frame that was required despite several deviations from the original project plan.
Architectural Design - We were able to coordinate our schedules by doing the design interactively on-line in conjunction with a conference call (there was one time we worked on-line where I was in my home, my wife was in Phoenix and Ed was at his home - this was at a critical juncture of finalizing the design). If we had to do this work together in one place, it would have taken much longer. I am confident that we saved time and were able to come up with a much better collaborative design for our project.
Most Memorable - The work was done as planned, on time and with high quality.
Areas For Improvement - They met or exceeded all our expectations.
Areas Of Satisfaction - The project was done on time and within budget.
Architectural Design - We appreciated the computerized design service. Sometimes its hard to conceptulize what the finished product will look like, especially since our remodel was the blending of old with new with some unique roof lines. The design service helped us to "visualize" the project allowing us to make changes without incurringincreasedcosts or time delays.
Most Memorable - The project was completed in record time.
Remodeling Concerns - Whether our older house structure and foundation could support the addition we wanted. The computerized design layed out the proper plan so the builders could easily follow it.

Recognized Excellence - David K. Kramer, and his exceptional hand picked crew.
