“G. Christianson Construction built a full size bookshelf and remodeled our floors (hardwood and tile). Work was incredibly professional and we have been incredibly happy with the finished product. Great company to work with.”
“G. Christianson recently completed a major kitchen and bath remodel for us. We really enjoyed working with this excellent firm from the day we walked in the door until the final sign off. Anna, Jon and Elizabeth created a design that incorporated our ideas with theirs that is wonderful. It opened up our 1980's kitchen and made it much more functional and beautiful. The cabinets that Ron, Eric and Bill built and installed are perfect for our space and the quality, fit and finish are absolutely top drawer. The construction team, Tony, Maria, Gavin, Eric, Dennis, Bill, and Cesar were outstanding. Always, courteous, professional and clean. There was never a mess left at the end of the day. Their attention to detail and quality of work from the framing to the finish work was fantastic. Similarly, the sub-contractors were excellent. Jon, did an amazing job juggling the order of work to address illnesses and other unexpected interruptions to keep the schedule on track. This was a 5 month project and it finished within a couple of weeks of the original completion date. I've done some project management myself, and know how difficult this can be. We are delighted with the results and love showing off our beautiful new kitchen and bath. G. Christianson Construction is as advertised, a high quality, professional team that delivers what the promise. We highly recommend them. ”
