These people are problem solvers and open to client ideas about green building methods and monitoring technology. We had an unusual situation that another builder walked out on, but ABA was open to unconventional ideas that worked well.se
We trust them completely with all of our house renovation projects.
Everything from start to finish was exceptionally organized and on target with our timeline, contracted budget and final finish selections. We really enjoyed the efficient & effective weekly team meetings with them. There were no unpleasant "surprises" throughout the project. The transformation of our space exceeded our expectations. We highly recommend them to anyone looking to have a smooth, worry free design/build project.
Our 3rd project with ABA. They are great to work with--timely, professional and exceptional craftsmanship.
The first draft of the contract did come in higher than the concept estimates, which was disappointing. I don't know how common this is, but I would note to friends that that may happen. The concern is that we chose a general contractor with certain numbers in mind. However, Melinda and crew worked hard to reduce costs to better match our budget.
ABA has been a pleasure to work with from communication to workmanship - we are very satisfied clients.
This was a total new home construction. Architectural Building Arts is a great company to work with. They are honest, quality oriented, excellent communicators and always stand behind their work.
They understand the high level of quality I am looking for and deliver on that.
We were looking for a company that would take care of every detail of our project. In ABA, we found just that. ABA worked with us from start to finish, providing us with top-quality work and a beautiful finished product that met our goals. It was a pleasure to work with both ABA and its subcontractors.
ABA provides excellent service. This was our second project with ABA and we will work with them again--likely again within the year. Staff are professional and craftsmanship is quality.
We have worked with ABA on 4 projects. Their work is very high quality and their people are top notch.Our home has been much improved through their expertise and care.You get what you pay for and they keep their word.
I believe in them completely. They did a fabulous job.
Outstanding experience. Great finished product. Aaron was great to work with. Bridgette did a great job in drawing a project we felt comfortable with. Mike is a great on-site manager.
This was my second time using them, they previously did personal work at my residence. They were able to help me find the architect and coordinated with other parties to see everything went well. When there was a concern, a subcontractor came in and fixed it. I world recommend for high end building projects.
We hired ABA on the strength of their reputation and have no regrets that we put our trust in them. We are exceedingly happy with the complete exterior remodel of our home and the addition of a first floor master suite. The result is traditional and fits in with the character of the neighborhood which is what we wanted. The design of the addition, especially its size and proportions, its integration with the main structure, and its siting on the lot make the added space look like it has always been there. With regard to layout of the rooms, interior finishes, bathroom fixtures, lighting, and hardware we continue to appreciate the day-to-day convenience and beauty of these details, and know none of them occurred by accident. One of the most exciting decisions we made with ABA's guidance was choosing the colors of the siding, shutters and doors of our home. What we ended up with was a fresh choice that has not only been embraced by our neighbors and seems to have universal appeal now, but that we feel will hold its attractiveness in years to come. As aging baby boomers we had come to the conclusion that we wanted to remain where we lived, but felt the need to make certain modifications to our home to accommodate our future needs. ABA has made this happen. Overall, the four month duration of the project went by fast, a testament to the exceptional teamwork of everyone at ABA.
Ability to communicate openly and trustworthy. Excellence in quality of work performed.
The experience with ABA exceeded my expectations.
You're never sure if the outcome of a project will reflect the picture you have in mind. But Bridget listened to my thoughts, then produced a design that really worked. Mike and his team then followed up with the type of craftsmanship we have come to take for granted from ABA. The result easily exceeded my expectations and has received high praise from everyone who has seen it.
My concerns involved keeping the disruption to my home to a minimum. ABA let me know when they would be working each day. They kept the non-work sites clean and dust free. They asked for input when necessary and welcomed questions. They scheduled a weekly project meeting with the designer, the project manager and the president of the company to let us know what would be happening each week and graciously answered any questions we might have.
We were looking for a creative designer and builder to renovate our master and guest bathrooms. Architectural Building Arts fulfilled both objectives in a skillful manner.
ABA is the most professional building company we ever worked with. We hired them initially for a very small project and just finished our third interaction, a complete master bathroom/closet remodel. The 7 weeks work went as scheduled, everything was protected and cleaned everyday, sometimes not a trace of their work. End product is 100% within our expectations, thanks to the efficient preliminary creation and planing phases. Kudos to the nice 3D graphics. The execution was smoother than anticipated, and the local crew did an outstanding job in keeping the work area protected and clean. Casey, the local project manager, did a great job in supervising the contractors, paying attention to details, establishing communication, antecipating/solving problems always in a courteous and professional manner. We highly recommend ABA services.
We highly recommend ABA to anyone considering a design/build project. Any home remodel project can be challenging for home-owners, especially if the project impacts an important living area like a kitchen and they plan to stay in their home throughout the project. ABA made sure we were comfortable every step of the way. Our Project Manager was always professional and considerate of our needs - especially regarding the disruption of daily life in a construction zone. Any questions we had were answered immediately. Any concerns were both anticipated and already taken care of before we could mention them, or were handled quickly. ABA uses reliable sub-contractors with whom they have long-standing relationships and trust to perform quality work. Our architect was always available and willing to give stylistic advice on any detail or aspect of design right up until the last day of the project. And, best of all, the 12-week project ended exactly on time! Overall, our experience was very positive and the results are beautiful!
Architectural Building Arts repaired my 100-year-old staircase without replacing any of the old materials for new materials.The workers did a great job of repairing and preserving my antique staircase.
I have nothing but positive things to say. They are a professional company, who provide quality work done on time. We have been doing business with them for over 15 years, and we believe in their work.
I was most satisfied with the quality of the workmanship.
