I will not recommend. Far too many problems with too many areas of the process. Time wasted, too much money spent….
CG&S is a well experienced and exceedingly professional company. I would recommend it to anyone who requires 1) an excellent design team and and 2) the expert management necessary to carry out . They really listen to the customer and deliver as promised.
Overall, we are very happy with the work done by CGSDB especially considering the difficult timeframe during which we did our reno. The design, the quality of the work, and the excellent management of the project met or exceeded our expectations.
Very easy to work with, discuss progress, learn options.
The CG&S team was top notch. They addressed ever step of the process with professionalism and diligence. I would not consider using anyone else but them for any future project. We love our remodel. Thanks Danny and Lindsay and your whole team.
Great design process, very skilled carpentry, friendly staff and spectacular final product! Construction process was a bit bumpy (was during covid pandemic and this was our first reno project so we have no point of comparison)
This was our second remodel with CGSDB. Both experiences have been wonderful. They are on time and their experienced professionals are the best! We highly recommend them. You will receive quality workmanship
We would absolutely recommend CG&S- we already have! CG&S expertise and level of care during projects is worth every penny.
They were awesome, and the organization was amazing.
They are incredibly professional, courteous, and understanding. They do quality work.
CG&S does an exceptional job - very high quality work, attention to detail, creative and talented and committed to satisfying their customers. This is the 2nd renovation they have done for us - 10 years apart - and we would recommend them to everyone. In addition to the current project they volunteered to fix a number of minor issues elsewhere in our home. We know from experience that if we need advice and/or help in the future, we only need to call them. They are very pleasant, efficient and make sure everything is done to the highest standard.
Soup to Nuts service at all levels. Despite Covid Building challenges,
Management Team was professional, reliable and thorough. Any issues that arose during the four-month project were resolved amicably and reliably.
After recommendations from several neighbors, we hired CG&S for a total renovation of our 20 year old house. We moved completely out of our home for nine months for the renovation to take place. From start to finish, we had a great experience that ended up with our "new" home being everything that we wanted, delivered on time and on budget (during the peak of the pandemic!).
We loved working with them. They were great.
Our sixty-year old house had a cramped addition that no one liked using. What was worse, we couldn’t access our backyard easily through it. When it came time to replace the addition, I knew that we wanted to replace it with a quality living space that we would enjoy inhabiting. We also wanted the space to feel like a natural extension of the original build.
To complicate matters, our house was built on the root zone of three heritage oak trees so we needed to improve their well-being and not harm them further.
CG&S navigated city and engineering requirements to build our new living/dining room, office, laundry, and half-bath. After living in the space for a year (including working at home during the pandemic), we love living here. The new addition lets light into the kitchen so even the old space feels friendlier.
Renovation isn’t cheap so you should expect to pay for quality work. We appreciate that CG&S assigned a build manager to coordinate staff, vendors, and city. Staff kept our house livable during renovations and we appreciate that as well. The resulting structure fits our original design sketch while solving the plumbing problems through the root zones. We feel like the space will age well with the house.
I love the quality of work of CG&S! They stand behind their work in case there ever is a problem or if a change needs to be made.
We've had great experiences before. This most recent one had a few problems. See below.
Was very pleased with CG&S. In short (1) they came up with a great design, (2) the "build" portion of the project was well executed, (3) they were very professional and effective in terms of managing the project and our expectations, and (4) they very much made us feel part of the project where they listened to our input, explained areas where they may agree or disagree with some of our thoughts, and worked with us on working towards solutions on any issues which ultimately come up as part of any project.
We have worked with CG&S Design-Build on several renovation projects over the years. They are the best! Wonderful design ideas as well as creative problem solving. We give our highest recommendation.
High quality, good listeners, strong problem solving, in house craftsmanship, compassionate.
I would feel very comfortable recommending CG&S. Overall I'm very pleased with the finished product and feel like my addition is built to last. Thank you!
We love CG&S! They made our remodel as easy as a remodel can be. If a problem arose, I could text our project manager, and he immediately took care of it. Both the cost estimate and the time estimate were accurate. The project was even complete a few days earlier than projected! We have been 100 percent satisfied with the end result. CG&S would be our first choice for future projects, and we wholeheartedly recommend them to others considering renovations.
I have already recommended CG&S several times.
CG&S does excellent work and listens to what I want. There are a lot of scary contractor stories out there and I'm so glad to have found the CG&S team.
