These guys did an awesome job on our recent bathroom remodel. Shayne was great to work with, he kept us in the loop on the work being done and completed the job on time.
I’ve been stalling on renovating some other areas of our home, but after seeing the quality of work done on our main bathroom I will definitely be giving Shayne a call again!
Thank you so much to Shayne and his team for building our beautiful studio. We were so impressed with their amazing work ethics and wonderful attitudes. They answered all our questions and discussed all our ideas and options.
They were always happy to help and interested in our project (which was on time and on budget! rare these days!). We absolutely recommend Shayne, and once you meet him you will have the same great trust in his expertise and integrity that we did.
