We used Construction Ahead to remodel two bathrooms in our house. The entire process was very smooth and professional. From the Construction Ahead employees to the subcontractors, all were great, arrived on time, worked extremely hard, and made sure we were satisfied. We are looking forward to working with Construction Ahead on other house projects in the near future.
Overall Experience - The quality of the work is top notch and the quality of the people is even better than that. Truly, it was a great experience working with Construction Ahead. I couldn't be more pleased.
Professional & Organized - The whole team from Austin down to every sub is extremely professional. They make a big project with a lot of moving parts seem easy. There was never any confusion or people showing up on the wrong days. Everything was always ready for the person who was next on the job!
Creative Solutions - They have solutions for all unexpected surprises or issues (or clients changing their minds) and make the solutions seem easy!
Communication - I always knew who would be at my house and when and they provide a 4-5 week out plan so that I knew what to expect.
Employees & Subcontractors - Austin uses the same subs for all of his jobs, so they know him and his expectations well. They are very trustworthy, and do great work. in fact, I will continue to use them on my own if I ever need to!
Punchlist - Construction Ahead did such a great job that I didn't have a punchlist!
Dust & Dirt Control - At the end of every day, I heard the shop vac running and knew the work day was coming to an end. The subs followed the same guidelines. The house was as neat at it could be given all that we were doing!
Additional Comments - I really can't speak highly enough about Construction Ahead. The quality of the work is outstanding, but the level of trust with all of the workers is even more important. There are no sleepless nights wondering about the work or the people in your home. There's no worrying that the job won't be done well or that corners are being cut. That level of comfort when I had them in my home for months meant so much to me.
Overall Experience - The Construction Ahead team listens to what the customer is looking for in regards to the design, offers up suggestions, and addresses any concern in a professional manner.
Schedule - Construction Ahead provides a realistic schedule of the work being performed.
Trust - Construction Ahead follow through on all commitments. This is always a concern when hiring a contractor but after meeting Austin and team and view previous/current project that they were on and talking to those clients I was sold.

Customer Suggestion - None. Keep up the good work.
Additional Comments - This company gets the job done and has the integrity to stand by their commitments and work quality. Congratulations.
Austin Foster has done a number of jobs at my house and we've been more than satisfied with all of them in the quality as well as the cost.
My experience with Construction Ahead has been very good on both of the projects that I had them do in my home. The first one was an extensive renovation; the second one was a basement redo. Even though both projects were quite different, my experiences both times were very positive.
Additional Comments - This is the second project that I have done with Construction Ahead. Again, I was very happy with the finished project and would use them again if I had any other needs.
This was our second time using Construction Ahead and we would recommend them highly. Austin and his designer (Sarah) came up with a wonderful concept for finishing our basement/laundry room space. Austin and his team communicated with us regularly about how the project was progressing and what to expect next. We especially appreciate how Austin and his team were open to feedback and worked with us to come up with creative solutions when a couple of unexpected issues popped up. The project was completed on time and on budget and the final product has definitely exceeded our expectations!
Recognized Excellence - Everyone working on the project did a wonderful job. I especially appreciated Sarah's contribution. After our initial meeting and looking at some pictures, she understood clearly the look we were going for and helped come up with a concept that was both functional and beautiful.
Lead Carpenter Performance - Clay did a great job keeping up informed about the status of the project and what to expect next. He is very easy to work with and willing to do what it took to ensure that we were satisfied with the end result.
How Did We Do? - We were especially satisfied with the reliability and communication from the team at Construction Ahead. We always knew what to expect next and Austin's team and the various subcontractors would show up and follow through on what they said they would do each day. Also, all the workers were very respectful of our home, keeping things clean and creating as little disruption as possible.
Going through a remodel in never fun, especially while you're still staying in the house. Austin Foster and his team made this remodel as painless as possible. I wouldn't hesitate to use Construction Ahead on future projects.
Recognized Excellence - Sarah Jordon with all of the design aspects of the project.Clay Gienger with his hard work and attention to detail.
Lead Carpenter Performance - Clay was great with keeping us up to date on what work was taking place in the coming weeks. And letting us know when and what subs would be around working.
How Did We Do? - I'm most satisfied with the layout of the floor plan and how that process all came together, there were a few different floor plans that were delivered. These were discussed as a team and determined the best layout based on function and cost.
Great experience from start to punch out
Recognized Excellence - I would like to commend Clay (whose last name I do not know). Clay was at my house nearly every day of the 6 + weeks of construction. He was one of the first people I saw when the work was begun, he was here nearly every day while the work was being done, and he came by when the job was completed to see if it was satisfactory. I would like to mention the crew also. They were so polite, mannerly, clean and neat, and always helpful in any way possible. Clay even brought my paper to the front door every morning!! Courteous, thoughtful, smart, hard working!
Lead Carpenter Performance - Austin was wonderful. He was patient with my questions - agreeable to any change or suggestion that I had along the way, always was informative when I wanted to make any addition or subtraction to the original plans, was available when I needed information as to which thought was the best one - or if no idea was good at the time! - and led me along the way without an unpleasant word.!
How Did We Do? - The cleanliness!!! I was shocked at the cleanliness in the kitchen at all times. Never did the crew leave the house at night when the floor was not spotless, everything was put up in it's proper place, the garage was neat and orderly - it was just amazing!!! There was never any, I mean any, dust in any other part of the house! It was unbelievable!
Additional Comments - You have probably reached the conclusion that I am perfectly satisfied - in every way - with everything that had to dowith the construction of my kitchen. I have, and will continue to, sing the praises of Austin and his crew. They are above, far above, any that I have known before. Blessings on them!!!
I have used Construction Ahead twice. Austin and his team deliver a quality outcome, are trustworthy and easy to work with at all times. I highly recommend them.
Additional Comments - I realize that it is probably unusual to give such high marks to one's contractor, but I am so thrilled with my renovated house and I just don't have any complaints. Construction Ahead did an extensive makeover, and they were here for more than 5 months. Of course there were times that it was messy and I was inconvenienced, but that just goes with any renovation. Austin was so organized and efficient, and I was almost always informed about what would happen next. He is most reliable and trustworthy, which were two very important traits to me. I would highly recommend him to anyone (in fact, I've already done so), and I would most definitely use him for any future project. Kellie Boyce is the Design person for Construction Ahead, and she was wonderful to work with. She's very creative and resourceful and was able to find solutions for most everything. Always keeping the customer's budget and taste in mind, she helps you with the many, many choices that have to be made. On top of all that, she is so much fun to be around! Together, Austin and Kellie make a strong and formidable team that I think is just the best.
We have been nothing but pleased with the work that Construction Ahead did for us. I would and have recommended them to anyone who is seeking a contractor. The end result was beyond what we would have hoped and has added tremendous enjoyment and value to our house.
Easier Than Expected - I don't use anyone else because the experience continues to be exactly as I expect, nothing short of superb

We used construction ahead to demo and reconstruct our basement. We had some water issues and needed to completely redo a portion of it. The entire project took a longer than anticipated due to scheduling issues with another vendor that was doing the waterproofing and Construction Ahead always worked around the many changes and fluctuations in scheduling we had. I really have no complaints about any of the work. Austin was always punctual, worked around our schedules, communicated well, and performed quality work. He had some great ideas on ways for cost savings and we never felt pushed to pay more for something we didn't really need. I would definitely recommend!
Recognized Excellence - Austin was great the entire time. I really felt he went beyond expectations and we would definitely use again.
Lead Carpenter Performance - No complaints - Austin was always very punctual with information and updates. I never felt like we were waiting around for answers.
How Did We Do? - There were a lot of moving parts with our project. Not only did they have to work around a schedule for the water protection company, they also had t work around our requests for schedule changes. I was always very impressed by the flexibility and timliness they had.
Lead Carpenter Performance - He did constantly. I knew what would happen every day.
How Did We Do? - They did a wonderful job. I was very satisfied. They finished earlier than expected.
Customer Suggestion - Keep up the good work!
Professional, courteous, timely and thoughtful --- the entire Construction Ahead crew was terrific. CA delivered on our vision and worked around our complicated situation ... by that I mean, 2 dogs, a toddler and pregnant wife. The whole team was wonderful with my 2 year old son, Thompson, who wanted to help at every turn. Thanks much !!!!
Recognized Excellence - Austin, Kellie and Dave all were exceptional to work with. They were patient with our 2 year old when he wanted to "help" and let him ride in the bobcat and play with their tools! Kellie spent some of her own time coming to help me complete the project, such as picking out fabrics and paint colors. All the guys were very quiet in the mornings and were great with our 2 dogs as well. I know our toddler and dogs miss having them here every day!
Lead Carpenter Performance - Austin was a great communicator and resolved any problems that arose with professional courtesy and in a timely fashion.
How Did We Do? - Everyone was so friendly and I never had any concerns leaving the house while they were here. It was always left clean and the construction never impeded our daily living.
Construction ahead is one of the best companies I have ever worked with. The quality, the creativity of their work, and the communication was outstanding. Better than anything I ever expected.
Recognized Excellence - Construction Ahead has a really effective team. They were all first class people.
How Did We Do? - I was most satisfied with quality of the work and the suggestions they made to various ideas we put forward. We had a good dialog with them, and they know more than my wife and I do. They made helpful suggestions, and they were responsive to the changes we made during the project. It was like second nature to them to treat people in a courteous and respectful manner.
Customer Suggestion - They have a very solid team, and did an excellent job.
Recognized Excellence - I think their subcontractors were extremely professional and respectful of what Construction Ahead asked of them.
Lead Carpenter Performance - I think Austin Foster did a good job. Things did get busy during the project but Austin Foster continued to communicate with us.
Recognized Excellence - Kellie and Austin are just great and wonderful at communicating the process, schedule, and possible problems.
This is my second time working with Austin and Construction Ahead. Both experiences were excellent and the planning and execution of the projects were completed in a professional manner with great sensitivity to the chaos and upheaval that the homeowner experiences during home renovation. We agreed on the scope of work, laid out a schedule and the work was completed on time. And everything looks great! Can't ask for more than that.
How Did We Do? - Project plan defined and executed, unanticipated problems resolved, worked within my schedule, didn't make a mess, all subs showed up when they were supposed to
We had an excellent experience with Construction Ahead - they did the job quickly and for a good price, and everyone who worked on the job was a pleasure to be around. The repairs look great and I am looking forward to working with them again.
Lead Carpenter Performance - Austin did a great job letting me know how things were going
How Did We Do? - the pricing was very good, and Austin was in contact with the engineer as well as with me, so I knew that all of the structural concerns were being addressed
I would definitely recommend their design, follow through, and coordination while doing a design/build construction project. Construction Ahead handled every hurdle that came up during the project. They filled every obligation and promise to me during the complete install of the project. I would definitely recommend them for future projects and to friends.
Construction Ahead did exceptional work, they delivered on their promises on budget, on time. In my experience this is sets them apart. Their work is of the highest standard and they were willing to work with us on any small adjustments we wanted as the project progressed. We would highly recommend them.
Recognized Excellence - Kellie was outstanding! Not only was her design work phenomenal but she delivered on her promises, stepped in to the project management role and communicated and followed through in a way that worked well for us.
Schedule - Most of the delays were related to weather.
How Did We Do? - The quality of the workmanship was phenomenal.
Recognized Excellence - Kellie Boyce, the designer. This was a small space and making it work required exceptional design work. It would have been much easier to expand the space and the budget, but Kellie insisted that it could be done in the original space. It took a while, but she finally came up with a creative solution. We couldn't be happier with the results.
As general contractor - the quality of management for all subcontracted parties and the overall quality of work performed was very, very good and the interaction with the entire Construction Ahead crew was really good as well. Austin Foster should be commended for assembling a quality-conscious team. I would not hesitate to recommend Construction Ahead to anyone seeking a quality end product.
Lead Carpenter Performance - Austin and Kellie kept us informed of scheduled work by subcontractors and /or changes.
Additional Comments - We were very pleased with the design, construction, and personal attention displayed throughout the project. Wewould not hesitate to recommend Construction Ahead to others.
Our experience with CA was effortless. Everyone has heard horror stories of working with contractors, but this was not our experience. We were in no way pressured and we were given plenty of time and meetings to talk through the project and any concerns we had. The whole process was enjoyable and the end result is better than we could have hoped, we have already enjoyed our new porch and look forward to many years of doing so. We will most definitely use CA again for future projects.
Lead Carpenter Performance - Very well, they were easy to get in touch with and respond to any concerns or questions.
How Did We Do? - Their patience with us as we talked about the details of the project and meeting with us numerous times before we even began the work, and the knowledge that no matter what size project we ended up doing it would be done with the greatest care and quality.

Austin and his staff are professional and their craftsmanship is excellent. I have contracted with Austin on projects for my home and for my business with great results. His bids are in line with other companies, but with unsurpassed value when one considers the exceptional quality of the completed work. I will turn to Construction Ahead for future projects - large and small.Joey ImperatoriImperatori Karate
Recognized Excellence - All workers were great. There was a overlapping time period when we were open for business while the work was being completed. During this time Austin and his staff were polite and professional as they worked around my customers.
Recognized Excellence - I think Stewart did an excellent job and Austin as well.
Lead Carpenter Performance - He did that very well actually.
How Did We Do? - I think the overall design and planning went well because we had to come with the specifics of what we were going to do. Once we started the project it went smoothly as well.
