They understand historic homes and the details that make them unique
I used Strite for a smaller job, opening up some doorways in my kitchen and dining room and adding structural support for my 1909 kitchen floor that had a 1 1/2 inch drop to one side. What I noticed most about working with them was what was missing. I didn't have to worry, be bothered about their leaving a mess, or have uncomfortable conversations quality. I wish life was always like this.
Michael is a strong communicator and designer--works with the era of the house.
We have nothing but good things to say about Strite. Will definitely tell anyone who asks that we would use them again.
The work is exceptional, the team is responsive, good at solving problems and always positive.
Problem Resolution - Excellent.
Additional Comments - This is the 2nd job where I’ve hired Strite. I knew it would get done to my satisfaction (and it did). The process was be a pleasant one and worth the money spent.
Communication - Sara did a good job keeping us updated weekly. However, we were told that Matt would be our on-site project manager, but that got switched for some reason and Ed started showing up before we realized that he was our new project manager.
Problem Resolution - Ed was good to help resolve issues. Some things he just took care of himself.
Very happy with project.
Additional Comments - Great experience in six projects over 12-15 years.
After some extensive research, we decided on Strite for the major remodel of our newly purchased fixer-upper. We could not have been happier. Strite delivered exactly what they promised in the most professional and timely manner. From the initial design (thank you, Michael and Sara), to the construction, to the finishing touches, we were continually impressed by the efficiency and knowledge of everyone involved. As with nearly every remodel, we encountered some unexpected issues, but the team of Strite was able to quickly and efficiently deal with and resolve them. Having worked in Historic building preservation in Germany, my standards were pretty high. Strite met and exceeded my expectations. Thank you, Bob, Carl Jon, Jaman, Matt, and everyone else involved!
Areas Of Satisfaction - We were very impressed with the efficiency and knowledge of everyone involved. We were a little stressed, not knowing what to expect once we started demolition, but Bob and Jon Mundy were so reassuring and quick to come up with great solutions whenever we encountered a problem. It made the entire process of remodeling so much less stressful.
Lead Source - Strite has been around Boise for a long time and is well known for their quality. Over the years, we have seen their signs around town, spoken with friends who had used Strite.
Areas For Improvement - Tried to keep costs low with new electrician subcontractor who did not deliver. But strite stepped in on a Sunday and took care of it to make good on the work.
Areas Of Satisfaction - Very professional. Loved the interim kitchen.

Areas Of Satisfaction - We had confidence in the STRITE team and appreciated their process. Our project manager was very helpful and did a lot of extra work for us at our house (fixing holes in the drywall, paint touch-ups, etc). He interacted really well with our young children and we felt comfortable having him in our home. The finished product is amazing! We love our new laundry room, shower, and mud room. It has really changed the way our house functions for us. We have some other projects we want to do in the future and we will definitely use STRITE.
Lead Source - Our neighbors used STRITE and were very happy with them.

The entire STRITE crew was efficient and professional. From inception to finish, we felt like we were a valued client and not just a cash cow. They listened to what we wanted and provided valuable professional advice and suggestions. They provided the initial bid at their own risk and stayed within the negotiated scope of work and costs. We would not hesitate to use STRITE again or to recommend them to others.
Areas Of Satisfaction - The load-bearing job in our attic was excellent. The steps taken to prevent the project from interfering with the rest of the house weres excellent. All the workers were courteous, pleasant, and professional.
Lead Source - Internet and phone book
Expertise - The overview of our experience is: 1.) We're pleased with the result2.) Strite brought certain design ideas (e.g., eliminating the powder room shower) and capabilities that had major positive effects on the outcome3.) However, along the way, the project required levels of client oversight and intervention that were greater than expected ... particularly given the early investments in planning / decision-making and the substantial premiums (23% profit margin, 30% mark-up on expenditures) paid to Strite.
Schedule - In light of the unknowns inherent in a comprehensive remodel, Strite developed realistic schedules kept the project moving on-pace.
Problem Resolution - Agility relative to changes and adaptations was a strength. There were no instances in which we experienced Strite as being inflexible or prescriptive. The unexpected code issue relative to powder room code issue relative sink / toilet clearance is a good example: the matter was disclosed quickly, in clear terms, and supported by a fully developed, immediately approvable solution.
Value - Fair value: yes. But for the premium charged, the standard might appropriately be outstanding, exceptional or at least well above average.
Lead Source - Exclusively from an internet search of residential remodeling service providers.The web site design was clean and the content was substantive, suggesting an organization with an identity, purpose and supporting culture.
I have worked with various contractors over the years and this was definitely the most problem free project I have been involved with. I never felt I had to watch over Strite to make sure things were done correctly. Their craftmanship and attention to detail is impeccable. Everyone I dealt with was friendly, professional and highly skilled at their job. Thank you!!
Areas For Improvement - My expectations were surpassed.
Areas Of Satisfaction - Strite's communication skills and quality of work are most impressive.
Lead Source - Through interior designer, Tracy Cochran.
Areas For Improvement - We just weren't sure about the timing in terms of getting used to their schedule, but it was not problematic for us at all. We didn't realize we weren't their only job going on at the time.
Areas Of Satisfaction - I was satisfied with the quality and the quality of the guys that they had out here, Matt was top notch.
Lead Source - Strite has a reputation around town here.
Strite Design and Remodel staff were professional and very patient in helping design our nearly whole house remodel. They efficiently managed the construction phase with an excellent cadre of trades people to accomplish the difficult task of converting a 55-year-old house into a modern home. We would recommend anyone planning a major remodel consider Strite Remodel and Design./vert happy with results and quality of the workmanship. We would recommend them to anyone considering a remode to give Strite a chance
Areas For Improvement - Communications fell a little short of our expections during the punchlist phase. Response to our phone calls and e-mails were slower than expected.There were a number of work items for which we paid vendors directly. In these cases Strite provided estimates of costs by the job (materials and labor). One vendor did not alert us when we'd greatly exceeded the estimated cost of a job and by the time we were aware of the cost, it was too late to change our selection. If Strite has not done so, they should communicate with issue with the vendor.
Areas Of Satisfaction - We ended up with a good design because of the excellent interactions during design phase. The construction phase went well because of the friendly and courteous Strite construction staff and support personnel. With the exception of a very minor incident, it was a pleasure working with the individual trades contractors -- their expertise and care was unsurpassed. They were very conscientious about cleaning up after each day (this was mentioned and appreciated by our neighbors).

Our experience with STRITE design + remodel was excellent. STRITE design + remodel was very communicative with us; they told us what was going to happen and when it was going to happen. They gave us specific start and end dates and the work was completed within that time fame. Their work was exceptional.

I am satisfied with the quality of work that STRITE design + remodel offers. STRITE design + remodel did what they said they would do. If I needed work done, I would certainly use STRITE design + remodel again. They stand behind their work.
Areas Of Satisfaction - I am satisfied with the quality of the work. They did what they said what they would do. They are also always there when you need them.
Lead Source - I heard about their reputation.
STRITE design + remodel puts the customers first. They are very conscientiousness. They do the best they can with the budget that the customer provides them and they do not exceed that budget unless the customer approves it. They work very hard to meet the customer's needs.
Areas Of Satisfaction - I think they put the customer first and they are professional. What the customer can afford/need/want comes first and they do their best for them. I also found them, when we had any problems, they were johnny-on-the-spot. They were even there on the weekends if there was a leak or something.
Lead Source - My brother and I grew up in this house and my brother does construction with buildings and he knew about STRITE and knew they were good. He wanted to hire someone that would do a good job and they did just that. If I had done the research myself I may not have hired them because they are a little more expensive but it was really worth it.
Problem Resolution - I had a problem with a pipe freezing last winter and the president of the company himself came out to trouble shoot that issue - despite the fact that it was not his company's work that resulted in the problem.
Employees & Subcontractors - There was an issue with one employee of a subcontractor on this job whose behavior (but not workmanship) was unprofessional. Strite took care of the problem immediately, and when I had a subsequent, unrelated issue that needed attention from that subcontractor the owner of the company addressed it himself.
Areas For Improvement - Having worked with them before, I was familiar with their work practices and my expectations were met at every turn.
Areas Of Satisfaction - The quality of their workmanship is second to none. From the tile installer who spent the time to map out several patterns for the tile on my fireplace front to the project manager who took care of every minute detail, it is obvious that each member of their team takes pride in their particular skills and is dedicated to doing the best job possible.
Lead Source - I was a previous customer of theirs. I first heard about them from a friend of a friend whose house they had worked on several times.

Recommend Builder - Definitely!
